Download some mods for nexus mod launcher and launched fnv via the launcher but when I load my save none of my mods are there they do not work? (by this I mean it is as if the game has no mods none are working).
I use mod organizer and highly recommended it. I actually just bought and modded New Vegas for the first time yesterday. I got everything running real smooth aside from neck seams which I need to go back and fix. Honestly the best thing you can do is a lot of research. Modding takes a lot of practice and there’s a lot of techniques to master. Just downloading and installing mods with a manager is going to give you crash to desktop most of the time. You need to make sure that you’re downloading the right files and cleaning up. all of my instructions below and do as much reading material as you can for each instruction.
(I have lots of experience modding Skyrim special edition and Fallout 4 as well)
- Get mod organizer.
- Get FNVEdit
- Get LOOT
- Get NVSE(Read and follow all installation instructions exactly as noted in the readme file
- Download the first 10 most popular mods for New Vegas(at least all the ones that are meant to optimize the game or to fix bugs). Make sure you read every single mod description for installation instructions and also check the post’s page for additional installation tips and common errors from people.
I got New Vegas with updated textures and stuttering fixes and all that good stuff and it’s running at 60 frames per second buttery smooth. And it’s my first time modding this game. All I did was read read read. And follow all the instructions exactly. The only thing I really did differently was looking at the post pages and reading through the top comments. those top comments have additional instructions that really help smooth out the experience.
