    Very nice! I look forward to seeing your Garden Compost and not least the ScavverTrading Posts in game. And you are on Bethnet, brave you, with an XBox version too! I'd like to get back to you for tips on how to make that work as smoothly as possible ...

    Hello, and thank you :)

    Uploading to Bethnet wasn't very fun at all, especially since I don't have an Xbox for testing... So I basically, just pulled the trigger and released it. It was like sitting in the dark, nervously watching the downloads go up, and just waiting for the shoe to drop... Luckily I had already been on the Nexus for a bit and knew there were no glaring bugs, so I wasn't worried about that, it was just the... not knowing what was going on, that killed me :)

    Also, it seems that xbox prefers if you let the CK pack your mod and upload it, it does seem to add some bloat to the file, but whatever... it worked :)

    Yep it worked and beautifully I might add. It's been in my load order from day one and works like a champ. Again thank you @ruinedworld for uploading that there. @Tinuvia we'll try to make it as painless for you as possible. :)

    Again, ask Kinggath how he locked the comments down so you don't get the random trolls.

    Yea, and Thank you again @mlwest1970 I believe you were one of the first to give me feedback. King said that you need to contact a mod and ask them to do it, which I think is absurd, so I was just leaving comments open until something causes me the need to close it, doesn't seem like many people really leave comments anyway, I think there have been like six people who have left comments or asked questions in over 9k downloads. I do have to say, the number of downloads caught me off guard. That's great that the console players get to experience the mod scene, and seem hungry for them.

    I really love your garden plots and as a RL gardener it will be great to see a compost heap in the game (for immersion of course).

    And if you're going to create a Trash Dump, you'll need to have Crows and Rad Gulls picking over it (immersion, again)

    Very true, but that would mean that a DLC version would have to be made and Gulls and Crows aren't hostile. But, there again, you might want to add that hostility into your settlement. :wink

    Found this on PC first, but I've put it on my Xbox playthrough, and not run into any problems.

    Great work! I didn't realize how badly I wanted a mod like this until I saw it. Absolutely love it, and can't think how I got on without it, now!

    They are easy to make non-aggressive, but yeah, it would require a DLC which is a downside on a mod that doesn't already require them

    Yea, one of my main reasons for the garden plots was my own raised bed gardens... When Bethesda put out those dinky planter boxes, I was like.... what the hell is this? less than an inch of dirt? hah

    I actually have been looking into the mechanics of the crows for the dump :)

    So how do I get the adhesives producting plot. I set up a Watershed but I don't see where I can build the adhesives plot. Thanks.

    The farming tree forks off the water tree so can get to it either through the watershed, or community well. Need water to have good crops!
    The farming tree technically starts at the second tier by selecting compost....

    You may also want to update again, I updated today with some bug fixes... and lowered the amount of compost you need to upgrade...

    Ok, so I need a Watershed/Community Well, then a Compost plot, then I can build an adhesives plot, I think? Got it.

    Yes, the adhesive lab is a choice for upgrading the compost plot :)
