 Subject: Correct way to mod Fallout New Vegas?   Sun Apr 20, 2014 3:29 am I've had New Vegas on my laptop since I bought it. I decided to install it to my PC and mod it but I've ran into a problem. I did the archive invalidation and now my textures are screwed up. The body I downloaded should be nude she has an underwear on and the body textures look terrible. I'm not really sure what to do. What is the correct way to get New Vegas ready for modding? I seem to have forgetten.Spoiler: Spoiler: nsfwSpoiler: Last edited by xencosti on Sun Apr 20, 2014 3:38 am; edited 2 times in total (Reason for editing : added pics)

That didn't do much of anything. I also went into the ini and added the archiveinvalidated!.bsa to the texture archive list.What should I be using?

 Subject: Re: Correct way to mod Fallout New Vegas?   Sun Apr 20, 2014 4:02 am I'm glad to have helped,And for the record, I've forgotten to do that a few times myself, always after re-installing fallout, and when I've spent a prolonged amount of time spent away from it. So don't worry too much over a mistake like that.

 Subject: Re: Correct way to mod Fallout New Vegas?   Thu May 01, 2014 1:43 am I've figured out that the automated Archiveinvalidationinvalidated mod on NV nexus no-longer works, just for future reference. You have to download the FO3 manual one and add it to your data folder, then go into your Fallout_Default and add it to the BSA loading list, then go to your Fallout_Prefs and do that as well.I know you fixed your problem, just posting this for anyone else experiencing the modding pain of Archive Invalidation.Cheers.

 Subject: Re: Correct way to mod Fallout New Vegas?   Tue May 06, 2014 5:01 am I'm getting these graphical/texture issues whenever I load to many mods (ESP's and ESM's) The limit for them is at around 150, give or take 20 depending on your system. If that isnt your probelm be sure to checkout Gopers tutorial videos, that helped me out a lot. _________________I have no idea what I'm doing.

Normally you can, but the feature is temporarily disabled in the Fallout forums [I think] for the duration of the photo contest so that entries can't be changed. If you haven't already seen the entries and/or voted you might enjoy checking it out.

 Subject: Re: Correct way to mod Fallout New Vegas?   Tue May 13, 2014 11:04 am Thats wierd, but Im not having a bad textures problems for some time now, actually a few years Just follow 3 simple rules:1. Keep plugin count < 110 (make merged patches)2. Dont install mods you dont actually need\crappy mods\alpha versions & etc.3. Merge simple retexture\armor\weapons\companions mods to 1 and always keep merged mods as low as possible in load order.Follow this and youll rarely have problems._________________--  brainball  My Achievements:

Most of the mods that would cause you to go over are going to hit so many incompatibilities between mods that its extremely unlikely your game will be stable anyway.

 Subject: Re: Correct way to mod Fallout New Vegas?   Thu May 15, 2014 1:43 am I'd suggest Mod Organizer as well, since it is very useful to keep the game directory clean and you'll actually know what overwrites what with it's mod isolation.But UI mods or mods that come with fomods should be done in FOMM.
