    Been having issues building in Boston Airport with build bar going in reverse and I thought I would do some testing to get to what is happening.
    I have seen at least 2 others having the same issue with bad reporting build bar causing you to over budget and having to use "recalculate usage" frequently.
    I ran some tests to get some data. I don't know if using the plot upgrade command could have caused the following issue but it just seems odd.
    I used the following commands; Vanilla Console command "Getav 34a" to get the current draws at any given time and I used the SS Holotape command "Recalculate Usage"

    I start with only a spawn settler button, the workshop, 1 settler, Cait and one 30 power connector.
    Run: Getav 34a = 7 draws
    Choose a single random resident plot, right after build: Getav 34a = 42 draws
    I the run Recalculate Usage and run again Getav 34a = 85 draws
    I use force plot upgrade command and waited 5 mins after it upgrades, Getav 34a = 53 draws
    Run recalculate usage and again run, Getav 34a = 77 draws
    I run force plot upgrade again the run, Getav 34a = 50 draws
    Run recalculate usage and , Getav 34a = 74
    I exited the game and checked my save and had 2 active scripts and 0 stacks

    A second test using a commercial plot yielded;
    Plot built =137
    fast travel and sleep24/return =137
    Recalculate = 181
    unlock = 160
    Recalculate = 188
    unlock = 167
    Recalculate = 195
    2 scripts and zero stacks

    Some others I tested I got back ZEROS sometimes after a force level up.
    Whats causing it, I don't know? But, there's the data, I hope someone finds it useful.

    Its not just SS plots that are not reporting/refreshing.
    Some Vanilla items go down;
    10 MG Turrents went from 60 down to 27 draws
    Some go up...
    20 BOS walls went from 47 up to 87
    30 Double outer walls stayed the same at 133

    Interesting. Which plots did you run in each of these tests?

    I don't remember the first plot plots name, only that it was a a outdoor residential, and was wood and one level, the other on that came to 195 draws was a commercial plot called Gaslight concoctions.
    It was two levels and much more detailed than the residential.
