Build area query

I know that placing plots outside the build area is a big no-no, and I've been told before that some items can be placed beyond the build limit and still be picked up for the city plan. With those points in mind, I have a question:

Is it within the rules to build a player home entirely outside of the build area? Say, directly across the road?

I was planning to put the player home outside the build zone, so am interested with the answer too :)
Oh and I want to add something to this...
can we place junk storage outside the build area (I'm also thinking of using an adjacent building)

Go as far out as you like.
This is way outside and it won the month I entered it, so there's no issue.


Word of warning though, there is a point in which your plan can only be build using the prebuild system(which isn't available for SS2 yet), as items that cross into another cell will be zeroed on the xyz if the player has another cell loaded. ie; I have a Spectacle island plan with a bridge to the castle and the bridge pieces farthest away are all screwed up if it's built from the city manager desk.

As mentioned in another thread, placing a player home outside the build area could be a bummer for players attempting to customize it, if they don't have place everywhere installed, of course you can always just put that in the mod description :agree:

Given one of the city plan ideas I've been mulling over for a very long time, this is really useful information. I guess waiting for the new prebuild system means I have more time to plan.

Doesn't help the xbox players though.

In theory, it should work. Keep in mind that scrapping outside the settlement boundaries is - difficult - without mods. From experience you really don't want to build too far away from the settlement boundaries. Nothing outside can be accessed by settlers, and they can not path over there.
