    Is the Free Build options of Workshop Plus supposed to work in Homeplate? I tried it and it doesn't. I'm asking here before investigating elsewhere.

    Bonus question : Is there something in Workshop Plus to convert Homeplate's Workshop into a full Workshop? There is a limit on what kind of items can be built there. I'm asking also for Boston Airport and Mecanist Lair which are also limited. if Workshop Plus can't do that, anybody got a recommendation of an other mod that would do that?

    Thank you

    For Home Plate (and other interior workshops, particularly Creation Club ones) you can try this mod - it will update things so that a few more build options are available: https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/43446

    Mechanist Lair and Boston Airport are limited workshops because they are not full settlements. You can't put a recruitment beacon down, you can't attract settlers, and settlers can't grow crops properly. I don't want to get too technical about it - simply say that it's because they are not put into the base-game list of "full settlements".

    If you want to live dangerously, try the keyword that I describe here: https://simsettlements.com/site/index.php?threads/new-skk-mobile-workshop.12196/

    Thank you. That's good info.

    Going back to my original question, could that mean that the Free Build option of Workshop Plus need the right keyword on the settlement's workshop to function?

    My apologies - I somehow missed that question entirely. I’ll test it now for you.

    Seems I was more knackered than expected - sleep overtook me.

    I can confirm that Free Build mode does not work inside Home Plate.

    Last evening I tried Aloot's Homeplate : https://www.nexusmods.com/fallout4/mods/44101
    It converts Homeplate into a full settlement. I started a new game to test it.

    When I tried to activate Free Build, it still didn't work. But what is weird is that later this evening I reloaded that same game and tried it again, and now it worked. I could build for free in Homeplate.

    Maybe something wasn't loaded correctly the first time, or didn't have the time to initialize properly. I'm not sure. It's far from a complete test, but I want to share what I found anyway.
