I enjoy the outposts, but really they leave much to be desired. Once setting up a massive network of every resource, I found myself looking for stuff to do with them, and other than weapon/armor mods, there wasn't much left to do other than sell it all. Even the decorations become repetitive when setting up 20+ outposts.

In addition to many quality of life changes, this mod aims to add many more uses for resources and various other items in your outposts with additional and useful resource sinks. New crafting stations, uncut outpost content, over 5,000 new decoration items, 100+ research projects, and an additional tier of modules are available to unlock. As well as a number of unique features and modules to enhance your building experience.

Various non-outpost related perks may be required to build certain features, such as Research Methods, Zoology, Weapon Engineering; it only makes sense that as you learn new things you have new ideas for your home as well.

Many of the setting can be modified and any items disabled with a new settings menu on outpost beacons.

Below is a wall of text with the majority of the features, additional details can be found in the downloadable ReadMe throughout the changelog.

GENERAL

CHANGES:
  • Increases the size of outposts by 100%.
  • Removes the build limit from outposts.
  • Greatly reduced the snapping radius of most items to allow for less annoying construction.
  • Increased the maximum foundation height for most items. Should make it easier to build on angled terrain, especially mountains and hills.
  • The outpost menu has been decluttered by adding sub-menus for more items, as well as additional categories to help keep decorations manageable.
  • Attaches a new script to the outpost beacon that should clear away any hazards in your outpost.
  • Wider range of use for things like foundations and land platforms, allowing construction on top of them, building in water, controlled height, etc.
  • Adds Unity support by randomizing sets of items each NG+, for example each playthrough will have 20 benches, with variations on colors and occasionally models. These sets can manually be enabled or disabled at the beacon menu.

NEW:
  • Main research project "Independent Research" begins the new level of technology, and is required to unlock most of the other research projects with the exception of a few. It is designed to be end game/NG+.
  • About a dozen other research projects unlocking various features of the mod.
  • Additional research projects designed to be resource and mineral sinks with lasting boosts.
  • The cut manufactured content has been uncut, each with a builder. The manufactured resources are used for a number of items and research throughout the mod, and can also be used to complete supply quests that Bethesda forgot to cut when they cut the items.
  • Craft thousands of vanilla and new decorative, structural, and other clutter.
  • Recruit workers and civilians to your outposts.
  • Set up trade authority contracts and build vendor kiosks at your outposts.
  • Control and modify the environment with plantable flora, trees, atmosphere generators and gravity generators. 
  • Outposts can have an income, allowing an additional source of credits.
  • Flora and fauna is now unrestricted, increasing available resource locations. Any flora or fauna native to a planet can be farmed at the proper station.

OTHER ADDITIONS




Compatibility: 

Incompatible with mods that alter the vanilla outpost data. Mods that add new data, (such as new buildable items) should be fine.
Complimented by my Portable Outpost Modules (be sure to download the OUT version or there will be inconsistencies)
Includes my Outpost More Mission Boards Add-On, nothing will happen if you have both, but that one is no longer necessary unless you just want the Mission Board.
I Highly recommend reading what the mod adds, or installing the mod and looking around at the mod before installing other Outpost mods, most small outpost mods are redundant with OUT+ installed. 


Installation
1. Use mod manager to install normally or manually extract the plugin to your mod directory
