As i know there is a limit of the plugins you can have active, i'm not sure if is 140 or 150.

I'm afraid that 139 active plugins is the absolute limit on how many esps and esms can be loaded at a time.
Its supposed to be 256 but a hard coded bug in the New Vegas engine prevents that from happening.
Some people have claimed to be able to go over this limit but its generally excepted that 139 is the limit.

You can see the specific details in this tread: http://forums.nexusmods.com/index.php?/topic/915951-theories-on-the-magic-threshold-mod-limit-and-an-interesting-find/

Lucky it is quite easy to merge mods into a single plugin, especially simple ones like armor and weapon mods.
I myself have hundreds of mods installed but only 49 plugins in my load order.

If you would like further help with anything just let me know.  Smile

You can simply unpack the BSAs into your data folder, it will have zero impact on your game and the mods will load the assets as loose files.

You can use Fallout mod managers BSA browser to open then unpack them into your data folder.

Unless you are a very seasoned scripter, i don't recommend you merge mods like project Nevada or any mod that uses an MCM menu. just in case that's what you were thinking, it would be messy.

If you need any assistants with it just let me know, I'm always ready to help.  Smile

For a little bit of insight into what happens, once you hit 140, it takes that plugin and overwrites the data in it into the memory allocated for the first plugin in the load order, which should be NV itself. So that's why you see the base game screwing up from going over the load order limit before you see mods going haywire.

@retlaw83

Wow i didn't know we knew exactly what happens, i wonder if it would be possible via NVSE plugin to target the code that's responsible for this problem and fix or work around it, its something to ponder at least.

Thanks for the info.

@Anubis

Yep they fixed it in skyrim but they also introduced several more severe problems, like the games memory management and scripting engine being complete crap for instance.

God i hope fallout 4 is on a different engine.

Good luck getting your game sorted.  Smile

I do believe that there's a way to bash the .esps together with a tool. I'll try to recover it from my backup drive, the name doesn't strike me at the moment. If you have any instances of items added by said mods in the gameworld, they'll be reset to original locations (haven't tried it with more complex mods, only added weapons / items / armors and small recipie / script fixes so far). Granted, a bitch if you no longer want a 'single' mod (you need to disable that entire 'block' and start over), but I'll try to reply with the name of that tool ASAP.

Edit: Name of the tool is FNVPlugin, on nexus. there -should- be a built in feature that refuses to merge .esps when there's a conflict. I've yet to have a problem, so give it a try, pretty intuitive, if you haven't already. I think there are a few other ways to do it though, just in case you weren't aware of that tool (think this was on some other thread too).

I -have- tried some of the more complex mods that involve a few scripts here and there, they seem to be not horribly broken. Yet.

How did you get that information?

Just wondering, cause it sounds unrealistic at least. Why the hard-cap of 256 and possible 200+ on some builds?

Em,

There is actually alot of tutorials for FNV Edit. Not to mention, that the process is much self-explanatory.

A few simple rules:

1. Dont merge plugins, that are in development and will be updated for sure.
2. Dont merge together plugin and its dependancy (for like in Underground Hideout for example)
3. When making a merge plugin, always, ALWAYS make a list in description, what was merged into it.

I do it like that:

Merged_Number_of_plugins_version_of_merge

Merged_16P_W1.esp

in description adding current date and list of plugins, that I used.

Helps alot really.

Other than that, process is really click here - click here - name result.

Visious has some good advise, make sure to follow it and the rest is pretty clear. if it's really necessary and i can't find a good tutorial I'll make one, but i don't think it'll be necessary.

Also remember any plugin with armors / weapons in it, upon merging, will remove said instances of the item out of your inventory / chests / dropped locations out of the world and back into their original containers. They will, however, still be in stock / in the hands of enemies if they are scripted to be so.

Well, sorry, I thought it was self-explanatory, that before merging plugins should be disabled and you must make a clear save?

Ok, list update =)

0. Make a clean save WITHOUT plugins, you wish to merge.
1. Dont merge plugins, that are in development and will be updated for sure.
2. Dont merge together plugin and its dependancy (for like in Underground Hideout for example)
3. When making a merge plugin, always, ALWAYS make a list in description, what was merged into it.

Also there seems to be a limit to the Textures & Mesh in the data folder before default unmodified assets like letterboxes start turning into red diamonds, BSA's seem to be better preventing this.

Yep, it sounds like you got too many. How many plugins do you got on at the moment?
