Question Bug? Workshop Framework seems to screw with surplus resources

Or at least it does water.

With ~800 water production and only 20 total settlers between my trade routes, I expect to get several hundred purified water deposited into my workshop every day or so. I instead only get 9 or so.

I've narrowed it down to almost 100% that Workshop Framework is the culprit. I've tried enabling (almost) every mod I have except for Workshop Framework and I got the expected amount of water. I also tried disabling everything BUT Workshop Framework, and I only got the 9 water.

The vanilla game has a hard cap on number of items in your workbenches, sounds like you're at the limit in that settlement. Have you tried using a mod like Uncapped Settlement Surplus?

As @kinggath said.

I use it.

As I am a crafting for caps fool:

I dont think it boils down to the settlement caps from the vanilla game. Most people know about that by now and there have been repeated reports about messed up surplus production, also on other platforms (e.g. Nexusmods workshop framework posts).

I was at a settlement (Starlight Drive in) with workshop framework installed when testing the surplus, slept for 24 hours at least 20 times. The workshop inventory was empty beforehand and production way above the needs for water and food. It was really weird, after sleeping i would check the workshop inventory. Sometimes i would not see anything produced (after 24 hours like i said), sometimes i would see some water and some food produced, sometimes i would check it again after closing the inventory to see the produced food gone, but the water still there, production numbers would vary alot, etc etc.

It felt like it was really messed up and inconsistent tbh. I didnt have other settlements that needed food or water from a supply line, and even if so, the workshop inventory wouldnt change multiple times in a few ingame hours.

Maybe this information helps, maybe not, i tried :D

p.s.: oh and one more awkward thing, i was looking at some food in the workshop and when i moved 1 food item to my inventory, suddenly some purified water popped up (there was ONLY food in the inventory before) triggered by my mouseclick on the food item.

I can 100% say it's not the vanilla cap on surplus that's the issue. I already have the uncapped surplus mod.

Disabling EVERY mod except Workshop Framework, and I only got about 10 purified water deposited into my workshop. Disable it, and I got the expected amount of ~250 (forgot the exact amounts).

You are absolutely correct. I had the same issue and finally traced to the Workshop Framework mod after 2 weeks of troubleshooting. There should be a notice on the download page of the mod's interference with water farming.
