G'day folks. It's time for another city plan contest. Time to do your thing, and try to melt my potato er pc.

The Wabbajack installer
Please strongly consider
using the SimSettlements 2 City Plan Contest Helper wabbajack to create your entry. It's use is not mandatory at this stage, but it is highly encouraged that you familiarise yourself with this before Season 4.

The SimSettlements 2 City Plan Contest Helper wabbajack has been updated. The release notes are here. For those of you that haven't used it, this is a fully self-contained mod list set up to produce valid contest entries, with all known working addons. If you don't already have it, download Wabbajack from the Nexus here. You can find detailed installation instructions here, but the short version is essentially:
  1. Start Wabbajack, and select Browse Modlists. Under Games, select Fallout 4.
  2. Enable "Show Unofficial Lists". Select SimSettlements 2 City Plan Contest Helper from the selection.

  3. Hit the big start button. Follow any pop up instructions you get, such as log into Nexus.
  4. If you have Nexus premium, it's basically fully automated. If not - you'll have to click the download buttons. That's a Nexus condition.
  5. Open the installation folder and locate an executable named ModOrganizer.exe - double click on it. Hit the big button marked "Run".

The SimSettlements 2 City Plan Contest helper has been updated.
This release contains hotfixes to both SimSettlements 2 and addon packs.
You MUST reapply the contest settings in the MCM after this update

@Yagisan or anyone that can answer this.
First let me say how fantastic Wabbajack is. It's amazing what this does.

Here is a pic where I'm stuck. It's been here for a long time. Internet connection is working
How do I proceed?

Thanks in advance.
Quit and restart the Wabbajack. It will pick up where it was when you quit. You may need to do this a few times, if there are connection issues.
