Would Prefer Tenpines Caravan Connection to Red Rocket, Not Just Starlight

I found that Tenpines is considered too far from Red Rocket for the caravan network to connect. I'd rather it wasn't only Starlight honestly. It is close enough when raiding from Nuka World to Red Rocket.

I’ve had the two connected before but that was with the idek logistics station 2 mod and it extends the range a little if I remember right.

The stock caravan system uses the same distance as the Nuka World Raiders. 70000 units I believe.

I've had Sanctuary connect to Tenpines in every game I've played (where I held both of those settlements, anyway), and Red Rocket would actually be closer...

So far still unable to connect Red Rocket or Sanctuary to Tenpines in the latest update. Hoping it was a bug or stuck that would work itself out.

Try the logistics station 2 mod , if you have it already make sure settlers are assigned , then go to settings and there’s an option to redo the caravan lines that should fix stuff.

Don't want to add another mod. I want to understand the vanilla SS2 caravan network, whether intended to work that way or bugged (that seems more likely as some people have said they can connect Sanctuary and Tenpines without a problem) so it can be fixed OR altered.

The range of the Empire system is the same used by the Nuka World Raiders. 70,000 units. You can't choose what settlements are linked with stock caravans you get what you get. You can have priorities with IDEK's and a lot more control of your system.

That's why I never recommend "ILS" myself; more people using that because the basic Caravans keep breaking, means less eyes on the problem and thus the cause is less likely to be found and fixed.
I assume you did all the basics; check the caravans are powered, staffed, have its Maintenance Costs paid?

Well, if its 70k/Empire, then I need to report a bug that I could not connect Tenpines and Red Rocket with existing caravan networks in both locations, which of course were stated as Operational, Assigned in the ASAM. The map also did not show the connection.

so just tried earlier and both red rocket and sanctuary will connect with tenpines for me with or without logistics station. do you have any mods that make changes to nukaworld ? anything changing the raiding and settlement system in nukaworld could be affecting this.

I don't have anything like that. I cannot connect them from Sanctuary to Tenpines, or Red Rocket to Tenpines, but all other similar nearby do connect with each other. Just going to leave this as is in the event someone experiences and can comment for a possible bug report.
