This mod use script injection to add custom menus to your workshop, it can help prevent conflicts between modded menus but you would need to remove the menus in-game first when you uninstall or disable the mod, so make sure you read the install/uninstall info before download. As of v1.6.4, a settings holotape will be added to your inventory for you to perform menus and water/FX objects configuration, read the installation section for menus settings, and my sticky post for water/FX objects settings (you can also view the above videos).

A separate menu fixer is needed if the missing menus is caused by improper uninstallation of this mod.

- Troubleshooting

If you still encounter crash or cannot find certain objects while using this mod, it may caused by the following:

  • Too many mods (any type of mods) that add a large amount of keywords to your game, thus causing issues (256 keywords limit in game before game v1.4/ 65536 keywords limit in game v1.4 or above), this mod will add about 150 keywords.
  • Using mods that MODIFY INTERFACE (UI) of the game, try backup and remove any .swf files that has 'workshop' in the name in Data\Interface\
  • Esp plugin files not placed/enabled correctly like enabling optional patch that you don't need in fact
  • Archive files not placed/installed correctly, especially for those encounter crash in certain category of menu (Please manually check the files is copy correctly no matter you installed it manually OR using mod manager (including NMM), because NMM/mod manager may missed files)
  • Mods that alter perks may cause crashing. Like crashing when browsing the SOE Power Misc category as terminal require hacker perk.Try disable mods that alter the perk may resolve the issue

Black gold texture for Vault Luxury Room set (All DLC version)
- Still don't know what the cause is, but save and reload the game will fix.

Different appearance of objects in outdoor and indoor settlements
- Due to different lighting settings of outdoor and indoor settlement (like sun and moon light), some objects (most likely water and glass) will appear differently which nothing I or you could do about it.

Buggy IKEA Chaise Lounge Chair
- Chaise Lounge Chair pieces are currently experimental and very buggy.

Vault DLC Structure snapping with Vanilla Extensions
Vanilla Extensions modified the snap points of all Vault DLC pieces and block other mods that include Vault DLC related structure from using the default DLC snap points. You can backup and edit the Vanilla Extensions plugin in FO4edit to make it compatible with SOE Pack and other mods that add Vault DLC related structure by deleting all Vault DLC overridden Static (STAT) record (editiorID start with VltWorkshop and highlighted with yellow). If you don't want to do the editing works, then you will have switch to the Non DLC version of Vanilla Extensions.

Water & FX objects with Transfer Settlements
- Water and FX objects are fully compatible with Transfer Settlements as of v1.6.4 of SOE Pack, require v1.4 or later of Transfer Settlements.

Pixelated/artifact of GOBO texture for special light source
- Special light source used vanilla GOBO (WIKI here if you don't understand what it means) texture to acheive masked light effect, however the quality of vanilla GOBO texture is terrible, you can download Fixed Gobo Effects by Ablaze666 to improve/fix the texture.
