  1. I've logged over 1000 hours in this game and just came upon this issue -- maybe others already knew this. Was building some machinegun turrets in a newly acquired settlement and in Workshop mode it showed that I had exactly enough resources to build a turret. Only problem was that it didn't 'build' (didn't appear in faded green). This usually happens when you don't meet the perk requirements or don't have the resources, but the pop-up window clearly showed that I had everything I needed. So following a little experimentation today I discovered the problem was that the workshop was trying to use Knight Varham's holotag to make the turret (it shows as having 1 steel). But because it's a quest item the game wouldn't let it. That holotag shows up in the Misc tab, not in the Junk tab. I don't know if this is a new issue with the most recent version (CC version) or if it's been there all along, but you may consider addressing.
  2. Fortunately I kept a save before deactivating the patch so can go back to it. The pillar glitch is similar to the rug glitch, but works on wall construction pieces with snap points. It allows you to "glitch" a wall piece into a destroyed section of the house. You place a concrete pillar close to the wall piece and hold select to highlight both. Then you can place the combined pieces anywhere that the pillar would normally be placed. If you search for Croup Manor on Youtube and go to a vid by norespawns you'll see how it works. He also has an older video comparing the rug glitch with the pillar glitch. All his work is done using the PS4, but it also works on pc and I've used it numberous times. I understand the navmesh needed fixing, so no complaints about that. Just wondered if the glitch I spoke of was incompatible with the fix.
  3. Been a while since I've been to Croup Manor, but realized today that the concrete pillar glitch no longer works in repairing walls. I believe UFO4P addresses navmesh issues there so I tried disabling the patch and the pillar glitch worked fine. Is the glitch disabling an unintended consequence of fixing the navmesh or is this something that can be corrected? I disabled UFO4P, fixed the manor and re-enabled the patch. I think this is probably a bad idea -- I've read previous posts by Arthmoor -- but didn't know what else to do.
  4. Outstanding, thanks for confirming I'm not crazy --- or, at least that this is not evidence thereof.
  5. I'm running Windows 7-64 Professional with the latest Microsoft updates. I also just tried re-downloading the UFO4P from this site, since the one I'm running came from Nexus. Installed the copy from AFK and still had a crash. Ok, just remembered that I had a copy of UFO4P v2.0.0 on my back-up drive. Installed that and still got that same crash. So the problem isn't with the newest version. Not positive, but I think I played FO4 with version 2.0.0 before with no problem. I've tried loading different saves before going into that bunker but still get a crash. I think the computer gods have just decided to crap on me.
  6. Wow, thanks for the quick reply. Here's my mod list: 1x1 craftable foundation pieces better settlers companion infinite ammo (version made by me using the creation kit, since the published version was made with FO4Edit and gives some error messages) craftable castle wall patches craftable turret stands darker nights easy lockpicking egret tours marina bridge far harbor ammo in the commonwealth gibson pier bridge *immersive vendors improved map with visible roads *lever action reload fix longer power lines outfit switcher quieter settlements *safely scrap covenant turrets salvage beacons snappable junk fences stackable concrete foundations unofficial fallout 4 patch *vault-tec workshop overhaul vertibird beacon plus a few texture only mods The ones marked with * are new since my last play through. I first tried disabling these new mods but I still got a crash until I disabled UFO4P. I also rebooted my computer during all of this and that didn't work either. I try to run a very stable game and avoid questionable mods based on comments made about it and my own limited experience. So as an aside, if you see something you're concerned about then let me know.
  7. First of all, thanks to the team for all your work in patching this game. I'm currently running the latest patch, 2.0.1, and ran into a problem today at the National Guard Armory. As soon as I tried to disarm any laser tripwire, I'd get a crash to desktop. Since I've done this mission before, I tried revalidating my Steam files -- no love. Then I tried rechecking my mods with FO4Edit to see if they were clean. I normally do this before installing any mod. The last one I checked was UFO4P -- and I found 47 identical to masters in there. Cleaning the patch didn't solve my problem, but disabling it allowed me to disarm those tripwires. Any idea what's causing this?
  8. Quest has started and Wuunferth is in jail. Just went back to Windhelm and found Arivanya dead, unclothed with all these stab marks just outside the Windhelm gates. Never had that happen before. I've talked with NPCs and no one is reporting that the killer is active again. Anyone else had this happen? Any suggestions?
  9. Issues with random encounters

    Correct, it's only available here. Version 2.0.0 -- see Arthmoor's second post under Unofficial FO4 Patch. I started a new game with it and seems to work great. So many more random encounters now. And maybe it's just my imagination, but the encounters seem much more dangerous.
  10. Outstanding! Been waiting for this patch.
  11. Issues with random encounters

    Impressive work! Do you have contacts within Bethesda that you can tell them about this issue? Though to be honest, I have more confidence in the UFO4 team to fix than Bethesda.
  12. Skyrim SE - First impressions

    @BlackPete - thanks for the info! I'll take your advice and wait on the masters.
  13. Skyrim SE - First impressions

    I've now seen two posts about cleaning Skyrim SE masters. Can you use the current version of TES5Edit for that? Just rename to SkyrimSEEdit?
  14. Thanks to all of you for the fixes you've made and are working on. Are quest fixes like "Emogene Takes a Lover" possible to fix (she disappears to her room and you can't access to progress unless you use the console)? And can workshop ownership issues like the turrets in Covenant be fixed?
  15. @Oxhorn: I just saw your YouTube video, Defense Chance Solved based on some of the discussion in this thread. Thanks for doing the video -- I'm a big fan. I talked with a statistician friend of mine about the probability of successfully defending a settlement if attack and defense strength are maxed out (i.e. 100), and the correct answer I believe is 62.5%. This simple diagram explains the reasoning: With a DefenseRoll of 50 or more it's an automatic win for defense (as shown in black hash region of the diagram). In those cases where the DefenseRoll is less than 50, the defense wins 12.5% of the time as shown in the red hash region. And a total winning chance for defense of 62.5%. As you correctly point out in the video, you can substantially improve odds of defense by managing food and water in the workbench.
