In Fallout 4, when you are building a settlement, how many settlers can you assign to a single resource through the workshop? For example, if I have 6 corn plants, how many settlers would I need to assign to those to make sure they're all covered?


One settler per resource with the exception of food, one worker can work "six" food, for example 12 foods that give 0.5 food each or 6 mutifruit trees (giving 1 each) or any combination of food producing resources as long its only 6 food total. In the instance of food you don't have to assign them manually to each subsequent crop.

  • It might be worth noting that this is a standard settler. Unique settlers have different 'effort values'.

    Is there a way to tell what those effort values are?
