No More Scavver Living!

When you come home after a hard day of killing all the things while hunting for your son you want to have as much luxury as is possible in life post-apocalypse. This means more than a crummy tub in full view of everyone to soak in and a grill that you can't even cook on. You want a nice bathroom thank you very much! You want a place to enjoy a beer and noodles! You want to cook on that stupid grill! You want a deck chair to soak yourself in the sun's radiation! Oh and is it too much to ask for maybe a little garden for all your adhesive making needs? Those weapons aren't held together with bailing wire after all. Luckily for you I had a chat with the neighbor, Solomon, and he was so pleased with those mutated ferns I got him he let me take over his unused roof and build a patio deck and greenhouse.

This mod is for the exterior of Home Plate only, it does not modify any aspect of the inside.


  • Update highlights:
  • -Custom workshop menu with mod's custom decor
  • -Workshop functionality in a limited area on the rooftop (not a full settlement) -Improved greenhouse
  • -Player pickable plants that respawn every 48 hours
  • -Drinks coolers that make ice cold variants of beer, vim, and nuka (by scripting, no hard DLC requirements). Takes 24 hours, requires power.
  • -Drinking fountain near HP door in the market area
  • -Additional NPC markers for idling including Dogmeat
  • -Swapped the trailer interior clutter so that the bathroom furnishings are above a vanilla pipe coming up to the trailer
  • -Most clutter is removeable
  • -Minor fixes to navmesh, object placement, etc.
  • -The original cooler under the patio table has been moved inside the RV. New cooler under the patio table cools drinks.

  • This mod is INCOMPATIBLE with most of Quince99's Homeplate and Diamond City Renovation files. I had decided to expand on my original plans and build a better deck and greenhouse after seeing his. My original plan was just some planters on Solomon's roof. This mod is COMPATIBLE with the "Homeplate Renovation Tabula Rasa" edition of Quince99's mod.
  • This mod will also be incompatible with any other mod that modifies the roof of Home Plate or the roof area of Solomon's in Diamond City.
  • This mod is COMPATIBLE with Aloot's Home Plate according to several users, IMPORTANT LOAD ORDER NOTE: place this mod AFTER Aloot's Home Plate.
  • COMPATIBLE: I personally use and highly recommend Greasemonkeymods Home Plate Expanded which connects settlement supply lines to the interior of Home Plate. IMPORTANT LOAD ORDER NOTE: Place this mod AFTER Home Plate Expanded in your list, otherwise items from the original exterior will merge with item placement from this mod.
  • DO NOT USE Aloot's Home Plate and Greasemonkey's Home Plate Expanded together, they are NOT compatible with each other. Pick one or the other to use with this mod and put this mod after the one you chose.

Known Issues

  • The cooking animation clips a little in a few spots. It's minor and doesn't affect usage. Unless someone can create a custom animation for me I'm afraid there's really nothing I can do about that. I took the cooking animation from another cooking station and it wasn't really designed to go with the grill as I've used it.
  • Sorry none of the bathroom pieces are actually functional at this time. I'm just not as cool as Steve40. Maybe in a future update!
  • Diamond City residents will occasionally visit your deck for a brief time. They will read the paper, warm their hands, cook for a bit and then show themselves the door. No idea how to stop that. for PC/XB1

Credits and Thanks

  • 2020 Update was possible thanks to the help of 1000101 and JOstrus for scripting, workshop, and power grid assistance. Jenncave for navmesh assistance. The greenhouse roof mesh is by Ethreon.
  • Jet4571 and Elianora for Immersive Toilet Paper. See their mod page for permissions.
  • HUGE THANKS to Evanpox without whom this mod would have been soo much harder. Evanpox helped me get through creating the grill as a custom crafting station, some mesh mashup challenges and a few other general questions. My hats off to you. Now go download their mods. Trust me you cannot live without them.
  • Shout-outs to Elianora and Darkfox127 for lots of quality tutorials, I've lost track of how many of them I watched. Credit also to Rage Gamer for a tutorial on lighting packins.
  • I made my own filled dog food bowl for this mod, but I give credit to the mod Cat and Dog Bowls Food for the idea of it.
