Some people are complaining that the new Settlement building feature in Fallout 4 turns the game into The Sims – Wasteland Edition, but there are a lot more who absolutely love this new system. And since it’s completely optional, I see no reasons to complain.
But those who love the settlement building feature will absolutely love this mod: Homemaker – Expanded Settlements. As the name suggests, it adds a ton of options and items to settlement building, allowing you to create true work of arts that will impress anybody. For the the settlement builder, the Fallout 4 mod Homemaker is a must have. It’s amazing!
Homemaker is a mod that greatly expands on the vanilla crafting system for settlements, and adds over 800 new, fully-balanced objects to craft, ranging from cars, to refrigerators to working street lights and everywhere in between! The mod also features a new Institute build set, with placeable snapping walls, floors, stairways and more! Whether your a mad scientist, longing for the good ol’ days, just trying to scratch out a new living in the wastes, or a sadistic raider, Homemaker has something for you and it’s completely amazing, as I have already said.
