The walls for the houses in Sanctuary Hills have disappeared. I’ve progressed since I’ve discovered it. Is there anyway to restore them?

Hi, I just joined these forums! I’ve heard about Sim Settlements 2 but I haven’t tried it out yet, but I’ve been having this problem for months and Reddit hasn’t quite helped so I thought I might have better luck here.

I found out this happened about a few months ago. I wanted to keep playing, which was probably a bad decision on my part. I'm almost certain I did not scrap anything.

I'm willing to use a mod or even learn to use xEdit to fix this. I don’t know much about modding, but I’d like to learn! I’m even willing to restore Sanctuary’s precombines or even restore Sanctuary to its default (not the most ideal solution but I scrapped a lot of things that I regret scrapping anyway.)

I am using Vortex. Some of these mods may be outdated or I may not have updated these mods yet. I know that some of these may be bloated mods or not the best mods, but like I said I don’t know a lot about mods, especially not at the time I downloaded them. I’m willing to bet it was Scrap Everything that screwed up the houses. I have checked the Workshop Plus layers, and they’re not invisible or anything like that. They’re just not there. When I loaded back to an earlier save they were there, but that’s pretty far back...

Thanks in advance!

Disable this. I'm willing to bet that the building shows up. I would recommend a new game without it. In my experience its more of a PITA than its worth. There are other mods out there like Place Everywhere and Clean my Settlement that don't have game breaking issues.

Edit - I meant disable Scrap Everything as a test...

Your issue is caused by one, all or a combination of these.
There is no good outcome here unfortunately, that save is toast. You cannot disable scrap mods once they've been installed as they create lots of extra records that cannot be removed.

Yeah but a new save is something that I do not want to do haha.

Would disabling Scrap Everything break my game? I mean I’ve made a full back up of my game through steam for worst case scenario.

Well Scrap That Misc is just for scrapping things like burnt books or papers and stuff that you can collect, so I highly doubt it’s that. Also I don’t think I even really touched RepairSanctuary? I might’ve re-enabled it just to see if that was the culprit.

Ah jeez, that’s really bad. I’m almost wondering if it’s better to roll back to a save before the sanctuary disappeared.

Do you think any of those Sanctuary blueprint mods would work?

Oh, if everything else is working still in your game given the issues and the mods installed I would leave well enough alone.

Seems to me tossing up some shack walls might help with immersion, but much else might do more harm than good to your save file.

Unless you roll back to before the issue or before you installed the mods Phil pointed out.

Maybe on the next journey try the mods in this post instead?

That is a good point! It just drives me crazy.

Thank you for the recommendation too! I’ve been playing on my first save anyways, so at least I get a fresh start next character I create!
