A level cap or something would be fabulous for delaying Taking Independence. I've only done two Minutemen missions and already Preston wants me to take back the Castle! I want to actually get to unite a decent amount of settlements before going after Castle, without having to be afraid of dismissing him without being able to recruit him again. (IIRC, if you dismiss him as a follower after Taking Independence starts, he won't be your companion again until after it's done.)
Anyone know of anything that could help with this? I've looked over the faction mods here and while there are some for slowing the radiant quests, I don't see anything specifically for Taking Independence. I know We Are the Minutemen used to have a feature that prevented the quest until level 15, but apparently not anymore. Thanks so much for any help!
