Better Cooking Stations
Here is an essential mod for all of those chefs out there.
Better Cooking Stations overhauls the game's Cooking Stations adding new sound effects, modes, textures, animations and more. It's a dramatic change from the boring old vanilla Cooking Stations that you're used to.
With this mod enabled you can switch between Private or Public which will prevent NPCs from hogging a Cooking Station in your settlement. When set to private only you and your followers will be able to use it.
There are new sizzling sounds that add a bit of immersion and a permanent fire that rests underneath the cooking spit.
There's also a new cooking station that's based on the Super Mutant cooking pot you typically encounter in Super Mutant camps.
These are just a small portion of the changes included with this mod. It's a big one though it'll only take up 18MB of space.
