I've been working on a big update (it's actually been in the works for a couple of months, but the recent situation delayed it a bit), and I have to say, I'm very happy with how it's turning out so far.

Instead of one big mod with bunches of stuff in it, it's going to be available as a core mod, with a bunch of add-ons that plug right in to it, grouped by theme. So, all of the food and drink stuff together, all of the entertainment together, and so on. Faction-specific stuff will be grouped by faction, so if you're doing a Minutemen-heavy build, and don't need a bunch of stuff for the BoS and Institute, you can use the FactionsMinutemen add-on and ignore the other two.

There are probably going to be about a dozen different plug-ins when I'm done. My goal is to make all of them .esl files, so that they don't count against the mod limit.

In addition to the new structure, there are going to be somewhere between 100 and 200 new items (I haven't counted), spread throughout the different categories. Hopefully there will be something new for everyone.

I'm hoping to have the whole thing done, tested, and ready to go by Halloween.

This might just pull me back into FO4 again you have peaked my curiosity.

I'm sure someone has done this by now, but I realized that I hadn't, so I whipped up a version of the Welcome Home sign from the old promo video to add to the upcoming release. I think I matched it up pretty well, other than it being a wall sign instead of sticking up from a rooftop. And of course the dirt/rust/scratching isn't matched up, because I'm just not that anal. So I made my own. :)

Just a quick update... so far it appears to be on track for that Halloween release.

I decided to re-do Signs of the Times (my vanilla sign mod) to merge it in with GS&P as one of the "plugins", and at the same time to add in as many of the signs and posters that I missed the first time around because a) I couldn't find where they were in the menu structure, b) I couldn't find a mesh built for them, or c) it was just too much of a hassle. Now that years have passed, I'm a lot more familiar with the menu structure, I've learned how to edit the UV mesh to allow me to get at parts of a texture that I still can't find a pre-built mesh for, and I've learned how to do material replacers, which saves a ton of time.

So, not only will the new version have a bunch of new custom stuff, it will have a bunch of new vanilla stuff too.

I'm still not entirely clear on how to package it all as a ba2 instead of loose files, as the only time I tried, (I thought) following the instructions I found, it didn't work. So, when I get to that point, if someone would be willing to walk me through that process or direct me to a detailed step-by-step with examples so I can see how things have to be formatted, I'd greatly appreciate it.
