From this version, Uninstalling the mod will not remove the settlers spawned by the mod, however, the settlers spawned by older versions will still be removed. From the beginning, the mod is designed to be installed/uninstalled easy and safely. It’s hard for a scripting mod that is tied to the game closely.After multiple versions of hard work, at least on my computer, I can repeatedly install/uninstall the mod without any loss now.

From this version, the mod is packed in BA2-File.

* Support any resources from MODs which meet Vanilla standard.

– Added a new settlement tool: Burn! Baby! Burn!
* Burn all dead things in the settlement.
* Items in dead things will be transfered to workshop.
* I don’t burn skeletons, a skeleton is a static mesh, not a thing(precisely, a reference)
* Dead brahmin is not a true dead brahmin, it’s a container looks like a dead brahmin, I can’t burn a container, just let it disappear.
* Any place in a buildable area, find tool in [Holotape->Settlement Toolbox] and click.
* I recommend testing at Croup Manor right after you kill all ghouls, really cool.

– Added support for DLC:Wasteland Workshop
– Added two new job titles: Red Contestant, Blue Contestant
– no extra ESP.

– Stable version. The first full version. All settlers(new settlers, random-event settlers, existing settlers, existing unique settlers) have names , except children. A good version, I think.
– General stability and performance improvements
– Added a console command in case careless people lost the holotape
If you cann’t find the holotape, Open Console
bat ILostHolotape
– I have no time to deal with console-spawn settlers or console-name settlers or console-whatever settlers, please don’t ask, thank you.
– At last, I can plan for some cool features.

I apologize to all of you, this version can’t be ungraded from 1.0X versions, you need a new save or start a new game.
For existing settlers, I rewrote most of scripts, added, removed, modified lots of ESP records, compatibility with lower versions is impossible.

I don’t recommend this version, just need some help.

– Existing settlers can now be assigned names as soon as you load a save.
– Settlers from “Random Encounters” can now be assigned names when they arrive at the settlement.
– Settlers from “Minutemen Radiant Quest Resettle Refugees” can now be assigned names when they arrive at the settlement.
– DLC1/Automatrons can now be assigned job title, their names untouched.
– Fixed an overlay issue with subtitles if job title is assigned.
– Job title is removed in workshop menu mode to keep screen clean.
– Job title is removed in dialog to keep screen clean.
– Fixed issue with Holotape not being added when MOD is repeatedly installed/uninstalled.
– Unnecessary “TALK” text is removed if job title is assigned to keep screen clean.
– Fixed issue with settler assigned to NorthlandDiggers “so shiny thiniges” workstation not properly being assigned job title.
– Replaced several improper names with normal names(Codsworth, you set me up)
– General stability and performance improvements
– A few tweaks and fixes I can’t remember

Now only settlers at Tenpines Bluff(husband and wife), Oberland Station(sisters?), County Crossing(brothers?), Somerville Place(father), Nordhagen Beach(husband and wife) don’t have names.
They are the last survivors of my naming storm, just because I don’t want to give them random names.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

– Removed “Assigns job title to Companions” option from Holotape.Similar options make people confused.
Anyway, you can toggle the option via console
Set iCompanionTitle to 1 ; Assigns Job title to companions
Set iCompanionTitle to 0 ; this mod default setting
– Added another copy of the setup holotape to sanctuary hills workshop.
– make a few minor fixes.
– Added a new Statement tool: Patch for preexisting beds.
Have you ever met settlers were suffering from insomnia in your settlements? You need this.
Issue Details(wiki:Fallout 4 settlements), Search “Pre-Existing Beds”
This is an automatic patch. You have nothing to do.
Can be toggled in [Setup Holotape->Settlement tool]

– Added new feature: “Don’t Call me Junkyard Dog”
Automatically assigns a name to Junkyard Dog
Can trade with named dog
Support dogs
Dog’s names are different from settler’s names, I digged into ESP, this dog is female, so her names are all female names.

– Made a few UI tweaks and minor fixes.
– Added two options:
Assigns Job Title to Settlers: ON/OFF
Assigns Job Title to Companions: ON/OFF
Can be toggled in [Setup Holotape->More Options]

– Renamed the option Holotape to “MOD – [Don’t Call Me Settler] Setup Holotape”
– Added “Settlement Toolbox”. A collection of Settlement tools.
The first tool is “Call unassigned Settlers”. It’s similar with settlement’s bell. But unlike bell, assigned settlers don’t move, they are still working. Also unlike bell’s TRAVEL AI-Package, this mod uses FOLLOW AI-Package to control settlers. That means, you can walk around , looking for unassigned mutfruit trees or something, they will follow you, you run, they run, you walk, they walk.
Usage: Play Holotape, click, click.

Added support for Busy Settlers by Despy.

Added support for NorthlandDiggers Crafting – Resources – Jobs.
Can recognize all ND workstations. No extra esp, doesn’t require [NorthlandDiggers.esp] as master.
This mod automatically updates itself with each version. Simply uninstall the previous version and install the new version.
