    Since codsworth isn't able to be assigned to anything, I wanted to move him out of Sanctuary. so I made him my companion, fast traveled to another settlement and then told him to stay there. But he didn't transfer to the other settlement counter, he stayed in sanctuary. His character is now staying in the other settlement, but he is being counted like he is still in sanctuary. I have went back and forth for about 5 minutes now and he still is counting towards sanctuary's population

    There's a lot that could be going on. Codsworth is screwy.

    Is he remaining at the spot where you first meet him? He will stay there, if not in service as a companion, until the Quincey Five get to Sanctuary.

    It's never been clear cut to me how you get him to actually count in the population count in the first place. When you first get control over Sanctuary he doesn't count towards the population.

    Whenever I dismiss him, I usually just cancel out of the "send to menu" instead of actually selecting a destination. This seems to maintain his not being counted in the population. I don't know if actually choosing Sanctuary or another settlement is what triggers his actually getting counted.

    In the game I'm currently playing, however, I've never used Codsworth as a companion (and Out of Time is completed), but I managed to get him to both Hangman's Alley and Mechanist's Lair via the assign leader feature of the CP desk at each settlement. He has never counted towards the population of any of these settlements in this playthru.

    The only job I've ever seen Codsworth stick with is a vanilla provisioner route after Out of Time is finished. You can assign him to provisioner route before then, but he'll stay in front of the Sole Survivor House with a pack brahmin. I used to send him from Sanctuary to Murkwater as a special vanilla provisioner even though I was also using IDEK's Supply Routes just to get rid of him and actually keep him busy. He certainly doesn't seem to stay assigned to the CP desk.

    Anyways, I hope your problem is just a matter of quest progression. If not, I hope bigger brains chime in.

    Thanks for the attempt, but that isn't the problem. I have completed the out of time quest, and am sure that codsworth is counting towards the pop. in Sanctuary. My problem is simply that no matter where I send him to is population stays in sanctuary, but not his character. If I put him at Abernathy farm, he goes there, but he population stays counted at sanctuary, and doesn't transfer with him to the farm.

    One last thought: How far have you gone with Preston and minutemen quest line? Have you completed First Step? Are you Preston's general yet?

    Until then, Garvey takes up a bed and eats food but isn't commandable and counts as towards the pop without actually having a real job.

    I have gone that far, right now im in between becoming general and taking the castle. I also made sure Preston wasn't in sanctuary either I sent him somewhere else. he was my companion so he wasn't counting towards the population to begin with.
