This bug seems to be well-known, but I failed to find any real thread on this forum, so I decided to make one.
The most obvious symptom of the bug is that you can't assign settlers anymore. If you use DCMS, you also can no longer use any of the settlement commands.
Apparently, this is an engine bug made by bethesda:
(Although, this has been said about the settler reset bug as well...)
But, that thread on afkmods is somewhat old, and it's not entirely clear on how to avoid running into the issue. So...
- What exactly counts towards this 128 items limit? First time I noticed the bug, I was in a rather small settlement, with < 10 people, a few crops and guard posts. Is this the limit for ALL settlements combined? It was the same in other settlements, too...
- Should deleting things like crops or beds or killing settlers restore things back to normal, or is the savegame corrupted from that point on?
- Is there any console command, mod, or anything, to get the current value of the limit?
- Now I'm not even sure why I ask this since I'm pretty sure I know the answer, but, is there any chance for a workaround for this?
