How to update
  • Unless stated in the version info, there is no need to uninstall previous version before upgrading. The way I build my updates you simply need to over-write the old files.

Version 2.32
  • Before updating, please remove all your Special Power Switches (if you don't you might be stuck with floating wires). If you have custom songs, please make a backup before removing the previous version.
  • All in one FOMOD Installer.
  • The Singing Settler menu is in the root of the workshop menu.
  • Singer's chairs: If built the singer will sit on the chair during he's break between songs.
  • If the singer is asexual (like gen 1 & 2 synths) he will sing male songs.
  • Change in the schedule configuration now displays the current settings when configuring.
  • Add a black & 3 wood flooring variations of the carpets.
  • Changes the special switches to a multipurpose switch configurable at a local terminal (new meshes).
  • Add cheering option (disabled by default, enable it with the config holotape).
  • You can now configure the spotlight brightness.
  • [Settings] Singing Settler holotape is now craftable at chemistry station (you'll still receive one copy automatically when you enable the mod for the first time).
  • Singer's Wardrobe plugin.
    • Build a outfit container in your settlement under Singing Settler >> Furniture (you can build them only if a singer's microphone is present in the settlement).
    • Fill the container with a full outfit (note that if you place items that uses the sames biped slots only the last addition will be equipped)
    • you can build as many container as you want, if there is more than of container for a phase (scene, casual, sleep) the singer will randomly pick a container and equip its content.
    • By default the containers are filled with custom textured clothes. If a container is empty the singer will go naked during the corresponding phase.
    • If a container isn't built the singer will keep what he's was wearing when the corresponding phase begins (with the exception of the sleep outfit container, if it isn't built the singer will try to wear the content of the casual outfit container instead).
    • You can configure the Scene Outfit container to be used with specific song templates.



Version 2.24
  • Adds a Song Configurator that allows you to set different available song on different settlements.
  • Adds a terminal configuration to the Tracking Spotlights for global settings (you must reconnect at least one spotlight by settlements to enable this functionality).
  • Adds 3 Active Speakers that relay the song through your settlement (Note that if you place the Active Speaker when a song it played, it will not relay the songs until the next song start).
  • Adds 9 1/4 Snap-able scene rugs.
  • Adds animations for all Magnolia songs + 1 extra animation for Train train (when performing Train train, your singer will have a 50% chance to use the "new" animation).
  • Removed the song configuration from the holotape, if you don't build a Song Configurator to your settlement, all available song (less the custom ones) will play by default.
  • Fixes most bugs and glitches, and added some safeguards.

Version 2.1
  • Please remove all your placed Tracking spotlights before upgrading, it is not required but highly recommended.
  • You can now set the singer time-table with the [Settings] Singing Settler holotape.
  • Rewrote the spotlight script, should be more stable.

  • If you don't follow this step, you will mess up your workshop menu really bad.


  • Decrease of alcohol consumption : settlers will tend to spend more time near the singer than at bar. This is due to singer's microphone generating more happiness than the bar. if its bugs you too much you can download the Less Happiness patch (under optional).
  • The carpets won't snap if all the edges of surface you want it to snap on are occupied (they behave like walls regarding that matter).
  • With safeguards added in v2.1 and higher the mics won't work with custom settlements if those settlement miss a Location (Location as form type)
  • Won't work with mods like New Dialogs.
