EDIT: At once I've already wasted 2 days looking for a workaround, I probably would have been close to finishing what I would have lost by reloading an older save - so I'll just reload to back before I raided the commonwealth.
For some reason, you guys aren't getting what I am asking.
HOW can i do those things when his only dialogue is "kill all the raiders to redeem yourself"? After overtaking the very first outpost in the commonwealth, preston will not do anything else but tell you to kill the raiders. He is unmovable, will not give any other quests, etc etc.
I had discovered sanctuary couldnt be raided by leaving him in concord before I asked this question. I discovered he would not continue past going to sanctuary when I've already raided a settlement before asking this question.
The question is NOT "why can't I raid sanc" I know why, because he's there.
The question is not "when can i move him", because I cannot continue his quests to do so.
The question is this and only this: Is there a way around that, such as mods that'll force him to move, or a mod to just flat out kill him, a console command or mod to make his dialogue let me continue minutemen quests until I can move him etc etc. A work around for a horrible game mechanic is what I'm looking for.
your guys' answers are just repeating info I've already given you... Well sort of.... it's not big guns, it's right after he makes you general of the minutement, which I told you in my original post.

I've found out that skipping the minutemen quests makes it impossible. Another thing I read said that I need to do the minutemen quests until I'm made the general, then move preston and other NPCs out. However, I'm already overboss and have the first settlement + supply for the raiders in the commonwealth. It seems even if I go get preston now, I won't be able to continue the minutement quests far enough without first killing the raiders...
Is there any way I can fix this? or work around it without reloading and losing about 30 some hours of gameplay?
It's quite frusterating when the only answers is just repeating crap I said in my first post... It's even more frusterating when it's repeated incorrectly. Soon as you complete his first radiant quest after taking him to sanctuary, he makes you general and he can be moved. However, I was the raider overboss and already raiding the commonwealth while he was still in concord museum, meaning I CANNOT do quests for him.
So, to avoid anyone else telling me why I can't raid sanc, and giving bad info on when he can be moved this is my one and only question, for the 3rd time now:
Is there a workaround (or mod) that makes it so I can continue his quests, force move him or any other way to raid sanctuary with him there after already raiding a settlement?
