Better Drumlin Diner (Survival Home) 1.0.3_Previs

8 Screenshots

About This File


This is my first attempt at changing world spaces in Fallout 4 for my survival play through. Since Drumlin Diner is one of the first merchant/vendor areas you come to (other than Trashcan Carla) This provides your character with a middle point between Corvega and Red Rocket to store your gear and get some rest. The workbenches are linked with a Power Armor, Weapons and Armor workbench all sharing storage. I have also added a second voiced Vendor "Rebecca" who will sell general goods (leveled to player) if Trudy gets killed or just as a second vendor at Drumlin Diner. I am constantly revising this mod for better performance and play ability, so send me those bugs and enjoy!

UPDATE 07.05.2020 - Changed the entry way for the Shack raised the roof (possibly causing the pathing issues) edited navmeshes for area. Recombined previs for all DLC version.

Scripted Light Switch in Shack behind Diner

To Do List:

FIX NAVMESH to allow followers to use upper level.

Lighting Series AIO - by Ceasless adds lighting to the Drumlin diner adding to the ambiance

Plays well with the following mods:

Concord Expanded 2.0 (pre Opt) 
Concord Revised
Inside Jobs 
Boston Natural Surroundings (Load mine after for 100% compatibility)

Beantown Interiors Edits world space at Drumlin Diner and can be incompatible I no longer support the patch for this.

Boston FPS Fix - I have been using my mod with Boston FPS Fix for some time, load mine after and you should not have any blinking world issues with the ALL DLC version. Vanilla file untested with BostonFPSx for reasons.

Fo4FI_FPS_Fix - My mod has recombined VIS and PREVIS which WILL CONFLICT with this mod causing Preculling (Blinking World Syndrome)  - You can try to load my mod after this one for compatibility. Untested!
