Overview[edit | edit source]
You can deploy Settlers on missions to bring you back useful supplies. To do that, you need to:
- Build job stations at settlements (Architect -> Job Stations)
- Assign settlers to them
- Ensure you have enough mission slots and appropriate supplies
- Use Command Table to deploy settlers
Missions take about 2-3 days to complete, depending on the type of mission and your leadership skill. Jobs train appropriate settler skills. On higher skill levels, settlers both yield more and fail less. On failure, they get a bit of experience but no items.
Settler Skills[edit | edit source]
All settler skills start at 0 and increase by 1-2 per failed mission of that type and 2-4 per successful mission. The base success rate of mission varies, but it's usually 45-50% and it's increased by 1% for every 2 skill points. Once a skill reach a value above 79, it starts decaying by 2 every day, so missions must continue actively in order to maintain a high settler skill.
Settler skill also determines the quality of rewards, divided into three tiers: 1-39, 40-80, 80-100.
At low skill levels, the risk of failure is great and the quality of rewards is low, so it is best to think of the materials spent on early missions as an investment for the future rather than expect an immediate payoff.
