And how do I find one who is responsible for this forum section? The link The Moderation Team only shows a blank page, although the according topic in the Help section states:

 

Contacting the staff

Where to find a list of the board moderators and administrators.

 

Help Topic: Contacting the staff

If you need to contact a moderator, or simply wish to view the complete administration team, you can click the link 'The moderating team' found at the bottom of the main board page. This list will show you administrators and moderators.

 

Note that you can report content to all staff by pressing the "Report" button when viewing the content.

So should I report my own thread to get it pinned? :D

I've been trying to get my game working using your guide but I'm having trouble and wondering what is going on.

 

The mods/files I'm trying to use are (in this load order):

 

SettlementKeywords

Robot Home Defence

Homemaker

OCDispenser

OCDecorator

Homemaker - SK integration Patch

Homemaker - Streetlights use passive power

Robot Home Defence - Settlement Keywords

MoreSpawns_High

Settlement Raiding Mod

MortalSettlers

Shellrain

Armorsmith Extended

 

 

 

I CTD every time I try to open the settlement building menu. I tried uninstalling everything but OCDispenser/Decorator and Settlement Keywords to see if it was working, but that CTDs when I move to the crafting category in settlement building. I tried doing the same thing with Homemaker, but that CTDs on opening the settlement buidling menu. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling both, and using both the SK and non SK versions but have had the same results.

 

I previously had all mods aside from Armorsmith, OCDecorator/Dispensor, Homemaker, and Settlement Keywords running with SSEX, but I couldn't get OCDecorator to run with it so I started trying to figure out how to get it working and saw that Homemaker was supposed to be more stable.

 

I'm not very technically adept, so I'm at a loss here. I'm using NMM to work with it all, so I have that going for me, and as you can see above I tried to move around the load order to match your example.

 

I don't need all these mods, bare minimum I will use to achieve my game plans are Mortal Settlers, Settlement Raiding Mod, OCDispenser/Decorator, and Robot Home Defence. I'd really like to use the others too, but I don't know if that's possible.

 

Are you able to help? Have any suggestions?

 

 

Thank you for your time.

@dmgdmind:

 

Make sure to check for every single probable cause mentioned in the "CTD issues" section and double-check even if you think it doesn't apply to your setup.

 

If still having issues afterwards, try these reduced load orders and disable everything else accordingly:

 

1.

SettlementKeywords

Homemaker

Homemaker - SK integration Patch

Homemaker - Streetlights use passive power

 

2.

SettlementKeywords

Robot Home Defence

Robot Home Defence - Settlement Keywords

 

3.

SettlementKeywords

OCDispenser

OCDecorator

 

Please report back afterwards on what happens in which combination and on your findings regarding the "CTD issues" section.

 

And please post your complete load order (use the export button in NMM's plugins tab to avoid errors from manually typing it) in spoiler tags.

Sorry about that, here you go

 

 

GameMode=Fallout4

Fallout4.esm=1
SettlementKeywords.esm=1
ArmorKeywords.esm=1
Robot Home Defence.esm=1
Homemaker.esm=1
OCDispenser.esp=1
OCDecorator.esp=1
Homemaker - SK Integration Patch.esp=1
Homemaker - Streetlights Use Passive Power.esp=1
Robot Home Defence - Settlement Keywords.esp=1
MoreSpawns_High.esp=1
SRM.esp=1
SRM_Corpse6.esp=1
SRM_Mercenary_Mortal.esp=1
MortalSettlers.esp=1
ShellRain.esp=1
Armorsmith Extended.esp=1

EDIT: Welp, I feel dumber than a bag of rocks. I was rereading your CTD section and it finally clicked that the section on the falloutcustom.ini was in a different fallout 4 folder than my steam folder. I had changed the fallout4.ini and falloutpref.ini files in my steam fallout 4 folder because I thought that was what you were supposed to do if you had steam. And since it had worked on other mods I had never thought to question it.
I am not a smart man.
Anyway, now that I'm sufficiently embarassed, thank you for your help. This is a great thread you started

Don't feel embarrassed. At least you shouldn't in my eyes!

 

Wise is the man who acknowledges his mistakes and learns from them. You are definitely not one of the dumber people here. You know how to ask, how to describe your issues and provide helpful information and you're willing to take advice. And you don't blame it on the messenger, when being pointed to some error on your side.

 

I have dealt with quite a lot of people here and everywhere else, who can't truthfully claim even one of these things for themselves. And they're the reason for my tone sometimes getting a bit harsher, when I get the impression that someone does not follow the advice thoroughly or even chooses to ignore it but still complains about issues (doesn't apply to you of course). But that's not to say that there aren't also a lot of nice, friendly, smart and appreciative people here! :wink:

Ha, thanks man. Have a good night!

Update: Added some commonly used mods known to conflict on certain menus due to adding custom categories including alternatives, fixes and / or workarounds.

 

The quest for getting this thread pinned seems to be doomed. I didn't get a response from any of the three people I messaged about that or to be exact: they didn't even read it yet. :sad:
