This is probably a weird question. Does anyone know how to get a list of every item in the settlement workshop menu? I have *alot* of furniture and decor mods. I wanted to make an organized list of everything in a Google Doc so i can ctl+f  for anything when i don't remember where it is. Is there anywhere in the files/directory/whatever I can pull a list of every workshop item from?  Right now i am just going through every section and typing up every item in game and it is  beyond tedious.

Considering it is entirely possible to have THOUSANDS of items in the workshop menus.... I think doing it by hand is pretty much a futile effort. :)

 

I understand completely where you are coming from though. I had such a list for morrowind in a windows help file format, and it was a godsend. (for the construction kit) I would LOVE to have something like that for Fallout 4. Trouble is, there are so many mods out there that add items to the menu, it's likely going to be different for each install. My best guess would be writing a script for FO4Edit to extract that information would (should?) be doable. (but, not by me...... don't have the skill for that.) It would also be an EXTREMELY useful script for anyone that wanted the information. Just get your load order set up, run the script, and there you are. It would be independent of what mods you were running, as it would scan the entire load order for workshop items. (ideally) Being able to export it in some manner of spreadsheet would be way cool. :D Even if it was just comma separated values, you could then import it to your favorite spreadsheet program.

Agreed. Doing it by hand has been annoying and tedious and i haven't even been listing *every* piece of furniture/decor I have. I've just beeen listing the crap i care about when i want specifics and giving collective descriptions like "vanilla wood build" or "renovated chairs". I would love to be able to write a script like you've suggested but idk how to do it either lol.

This.  It should be possible to scan installed mods and anytime one is found that adds things to the Workshop menu make a list of categories added and what it adds to those categories.  Output as a CSV, which could then be imported into a spreadsheet program and searched.  Granted you'd just get a list of what the mod author decided to call the individual item, but at least it's a start and would speed up the process of finding that one thing you want to find but can't remember where it is (somewhere in my mods is a copy of the Castle radio tower, I know I saw at least two of them, but for the life of me I can't find it today!)

 

If my programming skills were more than rudimentary I'd give it a shot, but the algorithm itself is pretty straight forward.
