I have recently started Fallout 4, but I am kind of stuck.
The main thing that I was curious about was settlements, however I didn't want a bad one so I went for the castle directly (at lvl 12, great struggle btw).
After killing the Mirelurk Queen, I found out that it was actually a quest I should do for Preston. I can already build in The Castle now, but I didn't do the quest.
The only problem now is that I have 0 settlers and in every video and guide I look they start with 1 or more?
I can't launch the radio tower (which you normally do in the quest?), because you need a settler for that.
I am wondering if I have to do all those quests now in order for me to finally build some nice stuff, I can't because it appears I need settlers to clean this up before I can make something decent.
Also, I can't find Preston in the museum. Where is he?
I did the first 2 quests, but now I have to help 3 settlements before he approaches me? Are these settlements of my own? Do I need to make 3 settlements first?
