Official balance patch for Sim Settlements, and Horizon.

This is considered a BETA until I am convinced there are no bugs or inconsistencies.  If you find any bugs or inconsistencies please report via the bug tracking tab.  I only offer support for the latest version of Sim Settlements and Horizon.  If you're using an older version of either of these I offer no support.

Edit 1/21/2019: Updated for Horizon 1.7.0.  The latest 1.6.4 version is still available under the old mods section.

Edit 1/19/2019: Not a lot changed for SS 4.0.0 so this is mostly just a balance tweak update. Most plot recipes have changed to include a kit or component of some sort; E.G. commercial plots now require a vendor contract. I haven't taken a look at Conqueror at all yet, so no news on balancing that in particular.  It is probably just as balanced as rise of the commonwealth.

Edit 1/13/2019: Added optional patches for Workshop Framework (no more free caps from vendors) and the Mega Pack Year One SS addon.

Edit 12/4/2018: The auto patched file is now an ESL file as it is not load order dependent and only relies on ESMs.  If your mod manager doesn't support ESL files, I suggest you upgrade.  Also moved the Trade and Doctor Plots patch from my Horizon Job Plots addon to be hosted here and cleaned it up.  Most edits were redundant to the new ESL auto patch anyways (they were nearly all identical changes as that old patch was built from a prototype of my auto patching script).

Edit 12/2/2018: Now with 100% more official blessing from Zawinul!  This mod now officially replaces the built in patch for Sim Settlements included with Horizon.  Starting with the next release of Horizon, Zawinul will no longer include the patch in the Horizon installer.

This balance patch is an official attempt to balance Sim Settlements a little better for Horizon.  This mod contains two files, one with handmade edits, the other (the one with AutoPatch in the name) with auto generated edits using an xEdit script of my own making.

Z_Horizon_Patch_SimSettlements.esp (this replaces the official patch included with Horizon)
Zbrn_Horizon_AutoPatch_SimSettlements.esl 12/4/2018: changed to an ESL file as the changes are load order independent and only rely on ESM masters

The auto patch attempts to cover the following large areas where Sim Settlements could integrate better with Horizon.
  1. Books, holotapes, food, beer, etc. have had appropriate DEF_UI prefixes added.
  2. Chems, beer, and food items were also nerfed/buffed appropriately to match with Horizon equivalents.  This includes removing endurance buffs, reducing strength/luck/charisma buffs, reducing value, etc.

Both of these esp's require the official Sim Settlements Horizon Patch be installed through the Horizon installer.
The required ESP is now bundled with this mod, so no additional install steps necessary!
