So I've drastically underdeveloped my vassal settlements. I turned Sanctuary into a giant plantation but more or less left the others as they were and now they don't produce enough food to feed my (ever growing!) raider bases. Is there some way on the PS4 to regain control of the workshops?
EDIT: well there's no help on the internet but it's nice to know that literally everyone who played the game agrees with me that it's f*cking ridiculous that enslaving people gives you less control over their lives than you had before. Before I was like "hey you, in the stocks, you: run on this treadmill all day, you: wash my undies" and now all I can do is stand around while they mouth off.
Yeah, the whole settlement system in the game is half-baked. I started the frigging settlement, and you people see me everyday building up sh*t, and all you ever say is "oh you're new here?" "You work, you eat" and other garbage. Mothef*ckers I built this city on rock and roll. The least you could do is worship me as your savior for making a haven in this land.
The whole raider settlement thing relies on you having both regular settlements with tons of farming and food, and the raider settlements to enslave those guys. Only way to regain control that I know of is killing everyone in the settlement and using the workbench. But it may make you an enemy of whatever faction you murdered I believe.
