Im building my homes with a modern approach, by modern I mean practical structures non of that glass wall billion $$$ stuff, and with billions of real world examples the possibilities are endless. If you have any suggestions just let me know here. I'll read em all. I hope to stay away from variants as much as possible. I feel taking one model and just changing the colors and item placement is cheating myself and you.

I had an idea of making few new factories or shops based on my own concept mod.
But because of my academic studies I can't do it. If you are interested I can share with you, my concept and few scripts that I made for it.

I will give rough idea about concept. I wanted to make Factories(Industrial Plots) or Shops(Commercial Plots) for Nuka-Cola and Vim.
Where at level 1 plot we can get normal drinks after some ingame time cycle
level 2 plot we will get a fridge in which we can put normal drinks which will be converted to ice cold after some ingame hours.
level 3 plot we can get other foods in addition

or something better if anyone can think of that and suggest here.

I am asking it to you cause your addon is the only one I liked yet.
Others are very underwhelming and doesn't give anything new.
If interested please let me know.

I would be interested in some shops. While building I try to watch the addons around me to determine what i think fits best along side my addon and if something else fits I wont worry to much about making those plots. Right now im satisfied with Mytigio's Factories, however i dont think there are any shops that fit my theme yet so im up for building those.

Ive seen you in discord, you can message me there if you want im Gobblarr in discord (WoW characters name lol). Anyway, I'm glad you like it! I personally like all the addons and the original content. I just had a thought one day and ran with it. Every developer here has done such a wonderful job.

No Doubt Everyone has done something great. Yours just stands out as unique and better.

If you'd want to create your own shop that fits with the theme of your houses, I'd have an idea:

I don't think I've seen any "consumer electronics store" so far. It's usefull for scrap (purchase some deskfans), or maybe even stuff for the workbench (like those washing machines, fridges,... from the crafting menus, radios, TV, ... ) or maybe even a mr. handy special sale... It would go rather well with the concept of building better houses instead of shacks. AND there are these Wattz Consumer Electronics stores and all those gadgets around that could provide a bunch of inspiration and decoration. And it's all that kind of stuff you want in a proper house with electricity and water, no?

Just wanted to throw this in here. ;)

So I think this idea would go under industrial:
A mine, that doubles as a dungeon and possibly spawn for enemies.

Here's my thoughts, the mine would give various metals as well as nuclear material on occasion. However for upgrades it would need to be approved by the mayor and payed with caps to upgrade. Once upgraded it would need cleared before it gets the production increase. (Maybe production starts with steel, then goes to aluminum keeping the same steel output, and then nuclear material keeping the other two)
If you don't clear the mine or after a while the mine could start to be re-inhabited and start spawning enemies (dk if this is possible)
This could also be done diff ways like with copper etc...

Good suggestion. something similar is already covered by another fantastic modder. But ive said to much already so dont ask for specifics lol.

Been loving your additions to SS kevbal, just have a question. Your upscale agriculture plots seem to nuke my fps when looking directly at them, would it possible to get a performance version with not so much grass?

your using the newest aio and not better gardens right? my ag plots are currently only about 20-60k poly which is less than my homes.

Just a generic house idea:
A clean trailer/mobile home, taking about half the plot, with the other half being a front lawn with picket fences around it, a short stone path from the gate to the door, a pre-war grill, some small plants and/or garden gnome.

I have not tried the aio yet as I thought it would be the same as better gardens as the patch notes you kindly wrote listed no changes to the gardens themselves after the merger only a new garden. I will try out aio and report back in a few days, thanks for responding!
