Issue #32686: Nuka-World raider outposts breaking top level vendor recruitment
Issue #24925 was closed based this comment:
To recruit one of the top-level vendors, at least one of your workshops must fulfill the following requirements:
I have a save with one surgery center and more than 20 settlers in a settlement, and I still don't get the recruitment dialogue for Doc Anderson.
The recruitment dialogues are conditioned on global flag variables such as WorkshopVendorClinic. These variables are manipulated by WorkshopParentScript.psc, its properties, and the UpdateVendorFlags() function. It looks like WorkshopVendorClinic is supposed to count the number of surgery centers contained in a settlement that satisfies the minimum linked population requirement. I've ended up with WorkshopVendorClinic being -8. A workaround is to build 9 more surgery centers, at which point the recruitment dialogue becomes available.
I was able to bisect some older saves and track down the issue to Nuka-World raider outposts. After Open Season, the flag variables went very negative.

There's another related issue. Placing a regular store or raider dealer increments the corresponding global flag variable. Removing the store/dealer does not decrement that variable. It affects both raider outposts and vanilla settlements. It can be used to work around bugged negative flag variables.
