    I made sure I had a base that could be happy before moving on to Nightmare Mode, knowing you can craft all the needed facilities is important. I got this achievement within the first day of starting Nightmare with a current group.

    I did this on Meager Valley at the brewing company base. I did not do anything to the starting base. I got in my car and drove straight for the brewing company and moved in. I started construction on the facilities and took 2 survivors out to capture a water and electric outpost. Take scentblock if you have any as it may help if you run into trouble.

    What I put in my base was this:

    1 Garden rank 3. (not really needed but I wanted to get started on food.)
    1 Latrine
    Rank 2 Lounge with xbox installed. *rank 3 is better, but I didn't have a sheriff leader.
    Red Talon workshop
    Rank 2 beds indoors
    Rank 3 infirmary
    Staging area
    Crafted a six pack of beer at the still

    Things you can also do for morale:
    -Craft a kitchen and cook a feast, You need someone with cooking skill for this
    -Destroy plague hearts for a temporary bonus for all of them for a permanent one (they do stack)
    -Claim an outpost that boosts morale like a coffee shop
    -Recruit a new member for a temporary bonus
    -Have survivors that increase morale
    -Add facility mods like a recliner for a small bonus

    * You can be short on beds for this, but I took an outpost for a few more for my group of 7.

    Once everything was ready I did these actions:
    Lounge-Console Game Tourney
    Tasting Room - Stock the Taps
    Latrine - Clean up
    Lounge-Poker Night
    Tasting Room- Schedule a Break
    Lounge - Play Games
    Lounge - Mix a round of Drinks

    You may not need all of these, but they are there just in case. I did have 2 people fight right away and still had a timer on them being mad, so it could still be easier if your group does not fight.

    Nik SRBA reboot of the game helped me get this one as someone else mentioned previously. I had no idea I can click in to see the number, just thought it was a bar that needed to be filled.

    There are many ways to boost morale, but I think this will cover all of the major points and a few minor ones:

    It's good to do this with the builder legacy so you can get free water and power, both of which are good for morale.

    Many survivors get a morale boost from having a garden, workshop, infirmary and/or watchtower. A kitchen, lounge, and latrine are good for community morale, while outdoor beds are, for most survivors, bad. Choose your base and facilities accordingly. I used the Corner Office in Lowl in Cascade Hills. It comes with a kitchen and watchtower. I put two upgraded bedrooms indoors and built a garden, workshop, infirmary, and lounge (large slot) outdoors. I had six survivors, one of which had the cooking skill to make feasts in the kitchen. (If you uprade the cooking skill to "cuisine," that's even better.) I added an Xbox to the lounge.

    Four of my six outposts were Dirty Bird espresso stands.

    Some community members will provide a morale boost upon becoming promoted to hero. Failing a community members' personal goal will impose a morale penalty.

    Make alliances with enclaves. Many of them will give you a morale boost perk or something that will contribute indirectly to morale.

    Most of the above morale boosts are permanent or long-term. Additionally, you can boost morale in the short term by killing hordes, freaks, and plague hearts. Too many infestations will impose a morale penalty.

    Destroying all plague hearts, thereby eliminating the blood plague, gives each survivor in your community at that time a permanent morale increase. New community members do not get this boost.

    Once your long-term morale is in the empowered or enthusiastic range by following the above tips, it's time to load up on temporary boosts. Throw some parties in the lounge. It took me a while to realize that multiple lounge morale boosts can be going on simultaneously, and the effects do stack. Prepare a feast in the kitchen. Wipe out enough infestations to at least remove the penalty. Go out and destroy a plague heart. (You will typically kill a few freaks and hordes in the process of doing that. )

    Be aware that the stacking effect tapers off as your morale approaches 100, so when you get to 98 or 99, you're going to have to add another 5 or 10 points to get it to 100.
