Good evening everyone!!!

What are the HOLO Icons for? They are the icons that are above your buildings when in the workshop menu. I don't know why they are there, and what their purpose is. Can someone please explain them to me?

Thanks in advance.

In short:
Top row is telling you what type/level that plot is
Middle row is how many occupants the plot has
Bottom row is for any problems (no power, etc)

Commercial type Plots have an additional requirement of needing a certain number of people living in Residential Plots in that settlement before they can upgrade. That house icon means there are not enough.

And 16 settlers, all living in a house, arent enough to have a gun shop go to level 2?
My poor old box will never be able to allow me play with a much higher population, even now it takes some 5 mins to have the needs table appear.

I actually don't know what the required number is without looking it up, I always turn that off in the settings holotape.
It turns out the numbers are:
  • To upgrade a plot to level 2 you will need 8 or more level 2 residential plots in the settlement.
  • To upgrade a plot to level 3 you will need 11 or more level 3 residential plots in the settlement

I have 16 residents and almost all in houses level 3 but I use multi person houses; the 8 and 11 refer to houses or inhabitants? If it's the number of houses i have to destroy and rebuild everything, not a thing i will be very happy to do
The setting you are speaking of is the 'Commercial requirement' houses or population? i just switched to population

I think it only counts the number of Plots, not the number of people living in them. I seem to remember kinggath saying that was 'deliberate' so you still have a reason to use single person homes.

Yes, that setting. I just turn it off altogether myself.

I turned off it and shops started updating immediatly; a thing to remember in my next, more hardcore, run; this one is for testing
