Fallout 4

About this mod

Pack of Layouts to be used to build up targeted settlements quickly that are designed for lower end systems. Each layout respects the vanilla budget settlement and starts with plots at lvl 1. Some layouts may be unbalanced and will be tested over time.

Permissions and credits
For version 1.6 Added BOS Outpost Zimonja and made small fixes to Sunshine Tidings Coop, Abernathy Farm & Tenpines bluff.

==The Purpose of this Mod==

Layouts are an awesome feature of Sim Settlements 2...

With a few clicks from your Workshop you can instantly build up a settlement with its accompanying plots starting at lvl 1. Even if you don't own a settlement Workshop Framework will allow you to build up settlements allowing you to interact with the commonwealth how you want too. Over time the plan is to have mostly neutral and some themed layouts to fill up your commonwealth settlements.

This is a collection of layouts is to be used in conjunction with Sim Settlements 2 and Workshop Framework with the addons Junktown 2 and Wasteland Ventures. You can use any plots you desire but for the looks in the screenshots you will want the aforementioned addons with links below.
