I started over with update 1.22, and am taking a different path: ignoring BoS, taking Piper, not using powered armor much (Twice in 30 levels) and basing out of Home Plate in Diamond City.
The update seems to have added some minor events and encounters, or I missed them the first time. It also fixed several gliches.
I'm not interested in any of the mods so far (PS4 user).
In a few more days, Far Cry 5!
