cory linked fallout mod manager,not nexus mod manager,use the one he linked,not nexus

if you want gameplay tweaks project nevada is the go to:
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/40040/

this will give you better hud options:
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/44757/

to keep playing after you get an ending:
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/42428/

more perks:
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/35979/

and this should cover "additions":
https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/38719/

not even close to getting the most out of it but that stuff should cover what you want and be simple enough

if you've played it before, try out Project Nevada for a different feeling. Add in a HUD mod, the unofficial patches and some graphical improvements and you're all set.

Yup I'm looking at that Stutter Remover mod right now. I get the odd stutter when it seems to load a new cell or something, which doesn't seem like too much an issue... If it IS a new cell causing it.

I'm a bit unsure what the first things I download should be... I see an unofficial patch, as well as the stutter remover and then there is that texture pack. I was thinking these 3 may be a good start? Should I go patch>stutter remover>textures?


Entering a different exterior cell causes a stutter. It's unfixable. It occurs in Fallout 3 and Morrowind aswell. Even wth my build and every fix that stuff still exists.

Go to nexus and make an account

Then go top mods tab and use those

Read the descriptions

Get nexus mod manager and mod organizer they go together

Nexus mod manager for downloading the mods

Mod manager to handle the mods and put them in order ......watch a YouTube video on how to operate it.

Get the program loot it helps you figure out if the game crashes and why for the mods

Get Test5edit it's a program to clean the mods up you might need it to get the game too run

Watch a YouTube video on the programs it should take you an hr or so to watch them all once you learn it, it is very simple.

I cannot stress how good Mod Organizer is. I'm not sure if any of the other mod programs do it:
Mod Organizer uses virtual folders. Firstly, it can interface with the Nexus site just like the official manager can. Mod Organizer does require separate folders for each game (unless there was an update I don't know about), however you can save profiles.

Things like mod install order are fixed merely by moving the order of the mods in Mod Organizer. This is because it doesn't overwrite the game's files and instead virtualizes the data files so the game thinks the files are changed. It makes dealing with mod conflicts and priorities way easier than the managers that actually overwrite the files of other mods when you install them.

It does take some getting used to, but once set up you can have multiple profiles with different sets of mods and different save game locations. I can't stress how much of a headache saver the mods never overwriting each other for real is.

NMM does that too. In fact, some time last year Nexusmods hired the guy who made MO to work on it.

Thank you all so much for the help!

I got a few mods installed yesterday and I used NMM at first then switched to FOMM. To be fair, they seem to both work just as fine with what I've installed but I do hear that extensive modding does kinda depend on programs cleaning them up etc. This was kind of the most daunting part about modding... All these various programs to get started and manage all the files lol.

Also what had me scared was all the additional mods that make others work like the UI merger, 4GB patch, the script extender, and one or two others... I found a nice texture pack for more 'realistic' bodies (I just want a pile of dead, naked corpses on my player homes doorstep ok?) and one that added more faces and hair, but admittedly it's a bit 'anime' in appearance.

Anyone know of any nice mods that will give me better looking heads? More real so to speak... My female character looks like Ariel from the Little Mermaid! xD

I might post my short list in a while and see what some of you think for my first foray into mods. I tried to mod a little bit of everything more so for the experience than need. Would also love a mod that adds backpacks and clothing options...

There's an Elizabeth (Bioshock) "race" mod and after installing it l never looked back, she kinda fit's in this world xD.

The same autor has an Elizabeth companion if you prefer.

For clothing l guess just browse the armor and clothing categories in the nexus.
