The War Planner's Desk is a piece of furniture that you can use to manage your Outpost in Sim Settlements 2 (like the City Planner's Desk for a Setlement). The desk has a number of features, each of which can be accessed by interacting with different parts of the desk.
Currently, there is no reason to assign anyone to the desk.
If you do, it will present you with the following choices:
We will be able to assign Commanders, who will have Traits (like Mayors) that will provide bonuses that are beneficial to Outposts.
From time to time, the Inbox will contain Notes for you.
This is where the reports from Scouting Runs in HQ show up after 24 hours.
Some of the Notes will also start quests.
Select to view Battle Reports for your Assaults or Raids that have occurred.
The reports will display in note form the same information as the Victory Screen that displays after an Assault.
The Inbox can retain a total of 128 reports.
Selecting an Assault will open a window listing the available Settlements for Establish Outpost or Make Vassal Assaults, or a list of Territories if you selected Capture Territory.
Once you've selected your target, you will be asked to pay some Ammo and confirm you want to do the Assault.
An Assault quest will begin and mark a location for you to join your troops.
|The Recruitment Radio can be used to queue up specialized units to recruit.
If none are queued, the Recruitment Beacon will recruit 1 Soldier/Day.
With a Recruitment Center Martial plot in your Outpost, additional Soldiers will be recruited daily (+1 Level 1, +2 Level 2, +3 Level 3).
When the Queue is finished recruiting, you will need to set up the Queue again.
Selecting Manage Recruitment will display a popup window displaying:
Manage Recruitment for [Outpost]
Faction: Faction Name
Potential Recruits Tomorrow: Number
Selecting this will display the Unit you have queued and Queued: Number
Selecting this will display a popup window;
Recruitment Queue for [Outpost]
Queue Position: Number
Number x [Soldier Type]
Use this option to select the Units you wish to recruit. Currently, there are not many options here. A future update will add more.
On the desk is a blueprint. Hovering over this will bring up the option to Manage Empire.
Selecting Manage Empire will display:
Selecting this will display the bonus modifiers for the Outpost that you have gained by capturing Territories.
It will display Controlled Territory: [Territory Location], the bonus and then, the following:
Selecting this will display the current Location and Type and the following options:
|Use the QUARTERMASTER'S KEY to select your default Loadouts.
An Armory Martial Plot is required.
As your Armory levels up, more Loadouts will become available.
At this time, there are not many Loadouts available. More will be available with future updates.
Set Military Uniform
Allows you to select a uniform for your Soldiers. By default, the following options are available:
Known Issue: Currently, when you select a Uniform for your Soldiers, and assign a Loadout, the equipment for the loadout may not all equip, or the loadout will equip and then switch to only the Uniform, or may only equip the Loadout equipment and not show the Uniform selected at all.

|Donate Caps or Supplies to your Outpost.
Some Weapons may not be accepted.
This is because they haven't been added to the eligible weapons.
Induction weapons added by chapter 3 and Institute weapons have been added in a patch.
Handle Resources for [Outpost Name]
You will need to have enough Supplies Storage available. If you do not, your donations will be returned to you.
The game may crash on repeated attempts to donate to a full storage.
To avoid this, make sure you have enough resource storage for supplies. It can be increased by building containers for supplies (lockers and crates from the SS2 Resource Storage menu) in outposts.
