February contest winner city doesn’t function

not sure where to post this, but the contest winner plan starts off with no plots and obviously just sits at 0% so there is no way, apparently, to get it to level up.

Gotta ask an obvious question....... Is there settlers? Plots won't appear without them.

Yes, but you’re right you had to ask. Some frames show up. A ladder up to a little nook where there are three sleeping bags. No plots.

How many settlers are there?
I designed this city to not really get going until L1 with L0 really only having the bare essentials. 3 sleeping bags, 1 water pump and 1 turret.
You will have to establish a supply line to feed them and then if you put nuka cola and chems in the supply safe that will make them happy and the settlement will upgrade.
All plots will not be present until L3.

Correct, there are no plots at L0

The 3 bars (food,water, defence) at the top of your hud being full and happiness over 70% is what upgrades a settlement. Plots mainly add happiness, they are not required for a settlement to upgrade.

Until your settlement has enough supplies to upgrade and population to build plots you will have to raise the happiness by giving your settlers a few pick-me-ups.

Well, maybe it’s just me. Everything is full. Dumped a ton of chems and happiness is very high. Perecent complete never moved off zero. I started another city plan at the same time and it is 70% to level 2 now, but this hasn’t budged.

Is the City Plan actually applied? It sounds like the plan built the foundation and then was removed somehow.

To check this, go to the desk, activate the blueprint, and choose View City Details to see if it still shows the City Plan details.

I would assume this is due to a lack of plots. Likely SS is not prepared for this.

If that is the case, this will require reworking of the mod to support such a thing.

Oh, so we have to have plots at all levels?
Entirely my mistake so, I can edit the plan no problem.
Would be easier than reworking the whole mod.
But, I have installed the "master" .esp that I have and it's not showing in the list. I have messed up something.
Will investigate further.

I manually moved progression along and at L1 everything works as normal.

@kinggath at L0 if I placed upgradeable beds from the PBP instead of vanilla sleeping bags would this overcome the the problem with progressing?

I don't know - I've never tested without plots before. It's likely that the code is doing something based on the total plot count to determine a percentage, so dividing by 0 plots will always result in 0% complete.

This bug should be resolved with patch 4.0.5. City Plans without plots should now be able to upgrade as expected.
