Not a bug Trashcan Carla Strikes Again

She really is an ornery old gal. I took over Sanctuary as my first Vassal, which went pretty well. Carla got excited during the assault and took the raider's side, shooting down settlers. Clearly she could see which was the wind was blowing. All seemed fine. But after returning to Sanctuary after going elsewhere, I was greeted by the sound of gunfire. Carla was still fighting everyone, and since she's essential, she just kept going. The other essentials were fine, but she slowly killed off all the other settlers in the place.

In my case I told Jammer I wasn't interested in his scheme and after a brief scuffle I left his body in the park. Anyhow after clearing Corvega for Tenpines Bluff and returning to Sanctuary Hills to talk with Preston we were interrupted and everyone rushed off to fight an invader, except it's just Carla! She seemed happy enough to trade with me when she recovered from being knocked down, but once Preston came back into range the fight was on again. (Which is where I left it while I came here to look for solutions.)

Yeah, in my current test drive/play thru, I sided with Preston & Co and did When Freedom Calls as vanilla. Prston & Co. all went hostile on me. I left and returned later, and they were fine, so I thought all was well. Until I got to Sanctuary where all of them were trying to kill Carla and her brahmin! I killed her and the brahmin to end it, No great loss. Carla is an Institute spy, anyway.

I'ld rather not kill her if it's just something minor that can be fixed.

Update: For the moment I've moved her to the Red Rocket Truck Stop and turned off her AI so she won't go anywhere. I don't have any settlers there at the moment so I may have to move her again before I start to bring them in.

Started a new play through with Conqueror 4.0.0a and Sim Settlements 3-in-1 4.0.0a, and Carla seems to be playing nice with Preston and the rest in Sanctuary.

Just happened to me. New playthrough with Conq installed but not activated and Jammer ignored.
Fast travel to Sanctuary and found Carla shooting at Mama Murphy, a bit later come Sturges and he started shooting at Carla and me with Preston, my partner, shooting back to him. Other settlers ignored the gunfight and the brothers too far away to join. When i started shooting back at Sturges Preston left me, probably offended because i stole his kill.
Reload, fast travel to Red Rocket and moved Carla there deactivating the AI. In RR i have Dogmeat and Codsworth, RR is my my companions parking, but they dont seem to care about Carla

Lokks like a grudge beetween Carla and the Quincy group, and she didnt attack Preston only because he was my companion

Edit
Took Dogmeat as companion and immediatly Preston started shooting Carla, need to move her somewhere else before switching from Preston to someone else.

Agi_, rather than ignoring Jammer you may want to try going back and tell him you're not interested in his scheme, when he gets agro kill him. That will complete the "In for the Money" quest (or whatever the initial quest is) and should fix the Quincy group.

If they shoot at Carla they're likely to shoot at others as well. In one play through where they were shooting Carla they also attacked my provisioner's pack brahmin (from the SS Logistics Station).

In my current play through, started with SS and SS:C v4.0.1, after getting Dogmeat I went east to the Satelite Station to get some xp before coming back to Concord, listened to Jammer on the rooftop, wiped out the raiders, talked to Preston (for the second time) and told him I'd meet him in Sanctuary, on the way back ducked down an alley into the playground, told Jammer 'not interested', caught back up to the group and followed them to Sanctuary. Carla has visited a couple of times without any gun fights.

I did a few playthrough before with Conq, always following Jammer quest, sometimes ignoring Preston, speaking to him just once to get the BH and the magazine, sometimes playing MM quest in parallel and every bloody time at some point my SS HUD, the one with the bars of food water etc, went crazy. Never had any problem with Carla or the Quincy group

In this playthrough i was trying to discover why it happened because it never happened before Conq.
ATM i killed and executed Sturges and Marcy, with Preston staying at the Castle that didnt notice and i sent Jun in a far away settlement were caravans should not go unless i build a post and i will obviously not.

Can try killing Jammer and call Jun back to Sanctuary, after all i dont need Sturges; what he does can be done by Tinker Tom or the gal of the BoS should i decide the campaign is worth continuing.
Can also build a post at the Castle, where Preston is leader, and see if he attacks the caravans there.

Nothing in Conqueror is touching Carla. Hard to say why this would suddenly start happening.
