Increase Settlement Size via Console Commands - without Mods
By Captain Marvel
Don't want mods? Try this! Works for me!

WARNING: Know your hardware limits. Always save. Save before increasing size.
Increase Settlement Size via Console
  1. Enter workshop mode.
  2. Open console with the ~ key, click on the workbench, type:
  3. getav 348 - Gets the current number of triangles used by player.
  4. getav 34A - Gets the current number of draw calls used by player.
  5. setav 349 # - Set the maximum triangle budget for the settlement.
  6. setav 34B # - Set the maximum draw budget for the settlement.

Video Evidence that it works:
Optimization - Optional
Let's try and minimize the damage to our hardware:

  1. getav 348 - check CURRENT triangles
  2. getav 34a - check CURRENT draws
  3. getav 349 - check MAX triangles
  4. getav 34b - check MAX draws

Now, the trick is to only change the MAX draws or triangles if the CURRENT ones are almost reaching the limit.

  • Only increase MAX triangles when needed.
  • It is usually the MAX draws that needs to be increased only.

Do not over do the MAX triangles/draws to avoid any crashes or anything...

  • Try increasing the MAX draws by 1000 each time
  • Try increasing the MAX triangles by 100,000 each time.

Hmm hmm, yeah I did try to get a mod for this, but it didn't seem to work haha. I guess I will disable it then. I forgot to do that. Thanks for the reminder. :)

@BelleFaerie those are just the 2 ids you need to adjust.. perhaps another mod is disabling those ids.. :D

There seems to be some sort of issue, I was only able to increase draws to 6000 before it appeared to have no more effect. My triangles are at like 1.3mil of 3mil. What's up with this, does the UI no longer register is for some odd reason, or did it legitimately break?

@ZeroGravityGamer DRAWS are what needs to be increased.. in 3d languange the TRIANGLES are the # of vectors for each object you put... the point where all lines meet... DRAWS are the number of objects you put :D

So how come if I increase the max traingles it says reached max size? Even though I increased the max size by 100,000 for the traingles?
