Defense Problem

So I started a new game with SS IR + RotC, (Heavily modded, which may or may not be the cause) but in every settlement my defense according to the SS toolbar is at -40, this includes Sanctuary which I started with the city planner which changed to -34 with two farms and a martial plot built

the problem persists with every settlement such as red rocket truck stop which has nothing built in it other than vanilla default when you first find it

I could turret my way to positive numbers but that would throw the balance meter waaaay outta whack

just cant think what might be causing itSanctuary.jpg Red Rocket.jpg

Did you donate weapons and armor in addition to scrap to the storage safe? That adjusts your defense rating based on the value of the gear added. Do note that you can't retrieve them later, so only add things you don't care about!

Oh, and I think I've noticed in the past that if you've not built anything whatsoever, such as at Red Rocket, that it defaults to having negative defense - it never just shows it as 0. I tend to just toss a turret or two at RR unless I'm actually building it out.

No I havent donated anything at all, im 4 hours into the save, and have just set up the settlement after returning from Concord
I dont think its defaulted to a lower value I think its become set like such as the martial plot and farms altered that number, which means if I cant get it positive then i can never upgrade the plots and turret spam will effect my balance meter
