About this mod

Theta Outpost is near enough to HQ to be useful. Focused on Hospital care, Water (advanced), Power and Perception Training, the 14 stationed there have plenty to do without industry or commerce.

Permissions and credits

This plan has a player home and is survival playthrough friendly

The following plot types are included at level 3: 
2 Agri, 0 Comm, 0 Indust, 1 Martial, 5 Muni, 2 Rec, 2 Res

Important note: If you choose to replace the layout with a City Plan or other layout, the flowers will stay behind. Don't worry! Simply leave and come back. The flowers will then clean themselves up.

DO NOT download this plan without reading the required mods list (under the graphic) below↓ 

Why this plan is level three: 

Modlists, Scripts and New Releases Oh My! 
SS2 + Ch2 (soon Ch3) + Bleachers + FSD plus whatever, can create script lag and stutter the game. I have found that by building some one-level plans, it can prevent some of the script lag. Downside = at some locations a few (or more) of the plots just don’t build to designer’s choice, even with the plans unlocked (settlings/cheats). Please see troubleshooting. (I’ve survived a couple of playthroughs with a nice, 50/50 mix of leveled and one-level plans at 25 locations. But do note that every modlist has its own quirks.)

The Storyline Behind the Guns ‘N Roses Build:

The Sole Survivor is trying to rebuild the ‘Wealth as they want it to be, in the face of war with the Gunners. There are outposts and townships and settler respites that are a little of both.
Trauma, Loss & Danger are a big influence. Law and Order – the dream. Trying to create peace and home are the goals, but let’s be real here. This is a ragtag outfit you’re running.

This 2nd chance at life has inspired a vision though. Sometimes, it’s outposts of shacks held together with duct tape, other times fortified resource townships made of steel and brick. As the leader, it takes a person with a lot of charisma, leadership skills and resources, even at their worst. Renovation is in the eyes of the scavver: But we’ve done this before. And war… never changes.

Different than MODestly Settled

Just a few different mods than that list. The war + renovation theme called for it. But I also want to provide a more dialed-in list, with each mod carefully vetted, having to earn its place on the list. That meant a whole revisit of old, new and tried and true. You’re welcome.

I like to build with mods! Afterall, we’re on a mod site! Here is my required mods list for the foreseeable future:
Trust me when I say it’s well-vetted and thought out. Thanks to VeeLynnLove and Zhinjio for helping me finalize this list. Their help was critical.


Art Connoisseur System ... a ''Frame'' work Essential. This will provide you with more flexibility. 
Business Settlements 1.9 (Standalone) Essential. Much needed signage and stuff
Just some Curtains and Rods to keep the peepers away
Just some Rugs to round out the list
Looks Mirror Essential. Just need it. 
OCDecorator - Static Loot Essential. Need the clutter
Renovated Furniture Essential. Just renovated *SMM patch available - see below
Renovated Furniture MYBEDs Standalone Version Patch by me. Essential. 
Sandbag Fortifications Essential. We are at war, you know. *SMM patch available - see below
Snappy Housekit Hard requirement. Oh so necessary 
SS2 Radiant Municipal Power Essential. Need the power.
Stained Glass Workshop Mod - Essential. *Requires SMM - See Below
Wasteland Gardening Essential. Recommend: Bonus Happiness File as well (won’t use slot)
Woody's Wasteland Stuff Essential. Also use the new cabinets texture *Requires SMM 
Xnjguy Filled Mods All-in-One Essential. Filled shelves and stuff

Manual Install Requirements
CWSS Essential. Choose the file from Steve40s Nexus Page 
V’s Stylish Decor Essential. Author Download link at bottom of page. 

Bethesda.net Requirement
Creative Clutter Honestly tried to go without it. Decided I don’t want to.
NOTE: The moment Chuck Yufarley releases his new building mod, it will be added to this list!

*What You Should Be Using
Settlement Menu Manager You should absolutely be using this

These will not take up slots - so use them
SMM Patches by Vanguard (Declutter your workshop menus) Grab the files for Renovated Furniture and Sandbag Fortifications..
Business Settlements Categorized - highly recommended  

Not Required, but to get my look - will use no slots: 
Clean and Optimized Wood Texture Replacer for Shacks and Greenhouses Wood Replacer - Shacks and Greenhouses 2K (there is a 1k version)
Clean Warehouses - Windows and Holes Patched
EoW - Pre-War Books Retexture - Changes all book covers in game. Great way to improve the vanilla clutter assets.

For those who are comfy at Discord:
Elm Shrub Hider by FrogPrincess - Available only on Discord under my-misc-mods. This one is just handy. Removes these shrubs (that are often in the way or stick up through floors) from the world.  

To see what else I use in my load order, peek at my recommended list below. There’s some goodies in there.

You’ll want to have Designer’s Choice and Starting Plot Levels ON for these plans to build as designed. This list of Add-Ons are what I will use for the foreseeable future. Occasionally, a new one will be added. Those with bullets are used in this specific plan.

Jampads 2 - a Sim Settlements 2 Add-on
SimHomestead 2 - A SimSettlements 2 addon
Sim Settlements 2 Addon Pack Caravan Snatex
Sim Settlements 2 - Apocalyptic Additions Addon Pack
Sim Settlements 2 - Far Harbor Expansion
Sim Settlements 2 - Junk Town 2 Addon Pack
Sim Settlements 2 Scrappers 
Sim Settlements 2 - So I Made Plans Addon Pack

SS2 - Settlers at Play
SS2 Superstructures - A Sim Settlements 2 Addon Pack  
SS2 Support Structures of the Wasteland (Add-on Pack)
Vault-TecTools Sim Settlements 2 Addon Pack

I want to thank Kinggath and the Sim Settlements 2 team for filling my secret gaming life with thousands of hours of fun and adventure! And a special thank you to that bunch of scrappy builders and kind moderators over at We Are Builders.

Note: Inevitably, in all city plans, minor issues arise some of the time with no clear consistency. There are just so many scripts. It just happens. So let’s do a quick checklist: 

  • Do you have settlers standing around in clumps doing nothing? Scripts + ‘too many settlers’ (turrets and spotlights count as ‘settlers’) is the likely reason. Consider using THIS awesome extra mod ‘More NPCs’ by Gorgulia. You do not need Realistic Convos. 
  • Power. It likes to break. 

  • Start by grabbing any plot displaying the unpowered icon and then let it go -  to snap back into place. This resets the plot and usually forces it to find the radiant power. In testing, this almost always works.

Sometimes plots don’t build as intended. Honestly, there is no rhyme or reason, but I’ve noticed some locations are worse than others. You might consider: 
  • Does it look like it tried to build a plan? If so, refresh.
  • Nothing at all? Are the plots unlocked? 
  • If the plan got stuck and didn't build, you won’t be able to build the correct plot, even if there are two and one didn’t build. I’m afraid the only way to get a plot you don’t yet have unlocked is to cheat and unlock them all. You can use the holotape or drop a desk and find it there in the console under tools/cheats/etc.

So many mods, so little room! 
Some of these are on my MODestly Settled list, but I wanted to keep the above list as small as possible for you. That said, here are my recommendations: 

Other, valuable mods I have installed:
Advanced Settlement Turret Set Wireless turrets with a tiny bit of OP, but no wires
Boston Natural Surroundings I just love the new beta. I’ll worry about Winter next year.
Climbable Ladders for Settlements Make it possible to do so much more. And so cool.
Settlement Activity Markers These provide more things for settlers to do (in addition to some important assets) While the markers don’t export in City Plans, they can be used in game to liven up your settlements! 
Videos of the Wasteland Fun to have and I leave spaces in all of my plans for the
Wall Mounted Magazine Shelf Great way to add a bit of deco

If you do opt for some of the above recommendations, take a look at these:
Get Base Object Swapper and Add:
Sniper00's swaps for V’s Stylish Decor, Creative Clutter, Renovated Furniture and more!


Just want to switch out some of those ugly vanilla paintings? I download all of these and make one folder with the replacements that I prefer.
Bob Ross Happy Little Paintings
New Paintings for Player Home
More Paintings for the discerning homemaker

I also use Atom Bomb Pinups with Art Connoisseur in my playthroughs. NSFW.
