About this mod

Your stores in your settlement are no longer empty and silent. Settlers occasionally go shopping and start different randomized conversations with the vendors. Or maybe just the vendors asks them about buying something. Invisible Shopping Marker version is available too.

About this mod:

This mod makes your settlements a bit more lifelike. During the day your settlers will occasionally visit a store and have different conversations with the vendor. The actual conversations are randomized to make it more immersive. Settlers spend about one or two minutes at a store. Then, they will go back to work.

When a vendor is not nearby (they're on a break or their shift ended), companions and settlers can still walk at the stores randomly and start browsing. Of course if the vendor is not around, they won't talk to each other.

The shopper and the vendor have to be within 24 feet / 7.3 meters in order for the conversations to start.

Store Mats:

With Store Mats, you can place "stores" anywhere. They are assignable workshop objects that act like as "real" stores. Similarly to Shopping Mats, they are only visible in workshop mode. Two versions: normal (uses the default "Bar Shop Keeping" animation) and a "Clipboard with Pen" variant (uses the "NPC Holding a Clipboard" animation: suitable for doctors). Pretty useful for custom stores (such as for the prebuilt unusable stores in Bunker Hill or for the counter in Nu Cafe Ola).

Shopping Mats:

You can see even more shopping spots with Shopping Mats. Similarly to Store Mats, they're only visible in workshop mode. Settlers will occasionally approach them and start "browsing" (just like if they were in a store). If there's a vendor nearby, the settler will start a conversation with them. They were originally designed for mod added stores but you can place them anywhere. Wherever you place one, your settlers will start shopping. You can also combine using them with Store Mats.

Note: the mod has much more conversations than preview videos. From v2.1., vanilla workshop stores are not overwritten which means this mod is standalone and should work with mod added stores.

If you're updating from v 1.0 - v2.0 to v2.1 or higher:

If you're currently using v1.0 - v2.0 and you would like to update to v.2.1 or higher, please make sure your settlements are not loaded when you first open the game with the update.

Special note to "Invisible Marker" users:

Invisible Markers are no longer supported. They are superseded by Shopping Mats. The updating process intentionally removes all Invisible Markers from your save. Shopping Mats won't be created automatically. If you'd like to update, use the "Only for Invisible Marker Users" version. The only difference from the main file is the file name (it has the same file name as the old invisible marker versions). Please create a hard save before updating.
