I love the idea of outposts becoming more military focused, but I wonder if it would be possible to keep some more like "regular" settlements. Raiders are in it for cash and blood, but also having a good time-- and settlement locations like Starlite Drive-in are just begging to be made into entertainment hubs, which wouldn't suit an outpost vibe, nor a vassal settlement. I would love for there to be a third option, a trade-hub/entertainment/general settlement, populated by your main faction, and only accessible if you have X number of successful outposts to militarily guard and support it. A place for your baddies to blow off steam, a place for your good guys to have some R&R. I don't know how difficult that might be, or just how different from regular settlements outposts may become to make this kind of suggestion worthwhile. But this is how I've found myself wanting to approach my play through Conqueror, which, as things are presently, is entirely doable, but I wonder if it will remain so later on.
