NEXUS EXCLUSIVE! Make your free range handy and gutsy workshop robots work harder, assign multi-resource production with 100% organic farming idles for your environmentally sustainable murshun.

This is a robot safety solution for COMMONWEALTH of DECAY.

What it does 

The base game Handy race does not multi-assign to workshop resources and has no farming idle attached to workshop built flora, so they just freeze in place wherever their AI package starts when assigned to farm. When you can actually force them onto a resource ResetWorkshop ususally boots them off as they dont have the right population configuration.

This manages any workshop assignable handy race actor as they are assigned/unassigned to workshop resources, including; Codsworth, Deezer, Graygarden named and worker bots. Plus the massive herds of glue farm worker Handys being cheesily spawned and mursivley recruited with Multiracial Workshop Actors that no one has ever heard of.

Whan a handy race robot is first assigned to a workshop resource it is enabled for multi-resource production (guard posts & farming). When a Handy is assigned to farm flora an idle is attached and moves with the plant.  When the handy is reassigned or the plant is scrapped/stored the idle is removed. EZ !

Update 002 includes workshop recipes [ resources:food ] to store the Graygarden greenhouse flora planters so you can [ scrapall ] and of course build many, many more. As they can be on the ground or on furniture they dont have neat offset idle attach points so the Handy's sit in them to farm.

Install this at any time in any game, it makes no static conflict(y) changes to the world.

Disclosure: the MrHandyGardening idleanimation it uses takes forever to clean up, even after disable & delete so they are moved to hidden holding cell to avoid slowing down your game. Its not tip-top, but rads  novichok  love  spring is in the air and Handys gotta farm moi glue !

Console commands

When the player first takes ownership of Graygarden this automatically finds, removes and replaces the 18 static placed MrHandyGardening idles with proper flora links. If taking ownerhip remotely or installing after taking ownership, be near Graygarden workshop so 3D is loaded and console:

cqf SKK_HFQuest "SKK_HFQuestScript.FindAndCleanIdles";

If you already have planters in your build menu hide these duplicates with:

set SKK_HFPlanterRecipesEnable to 0;

This is meant to run transparently in the background, if for any reason you would like to stop it generating idles when there is no flora with assigned handies (an are-U-sure dumbo warning pops if idles are still deployed). Reenable with the number 1 on the end.

cqf SKK_HFQuest "SKK_HFQuestScript.SwitchEnable" 0;

PC manual installation & disable

As this makes no changes to the base game it can be installed at any time in any game stage and has no load order considerations.

Copy SKKHandyFarmers.esp and SKKHandyFarmers – Main.BA2 to your...\Fallout 4\Data directory, enable in the Bethesda mod menu, Plugins.txt, mod manger or whatever. Even though it only uses base game assets it stashes some placed objects in a new cell, so best not to remove it from a save.


The mod has no dependencies on extenders or DLCs and does not change any existing base game scripts, assets or objects. It is 100% pure new Creation Kit forms and scripts which means that it has no load order dependencies.

As this was published after November 2019 it depends on Fallout4.exe (or later).


(1) Can I have an ESL ? Yes you can ESL flag the ESP.

(2) Published today, is this a serious mod ? This is actually a QOL component for COMMONWEALTH of DECAY, serious as democracy and territorial sovereignty, in the style of Русский военный корабль, иди нахуй. Any DP or donations support farming familes displaced by conflict.
