PostSubject: Dinosaur here, but new to G.U.M.   Sun Oct 21, 2018 1:11 pm

Hey guys and gals, I haven't modding PC games in over a few decades. I remember the days of modding the original doom during the era of dial up. Other than a few games here and there in the past few generations of games, I fell out of the world of modding. I primarily stuck to consoles for most my gaming needs due to convenience, since I mostly use my computer for digital work. Most mods these days have been plug ins and such for software and not in a gaming sense. When I saw Fallout New Vegas go on sale on Steam this weekend I decided why not. I always wanted to replay the game and see what the modding culture has been able to do with the game. Someone suggested I try Upgrades from the Commonwealth but it seems I have yet the "trust status" to access it yet. Which I guess I understand considering the work that goes into these, and such. Decided to jump into the community anyways to learn and participate in the current modding community. I am pretty knowledgeable with computers and common software usage issues that may come up, but bare with me I know I have a lot to learn about the ins and outs of actually modding recent games. I doubt I will require much of a learning curve once I attempt and fail a few times, but that doesn't mean I won't have a few moments where I just need something that seems a given explained to me. Already trying out Loot and got the basics for sorting, but I don't have many mods going yet so I'll see if the shit hits the fan once I really load up on mods if i truly know how to use it. Expanded fallout ram capability to 4 gig, installed NVSE and currnetly looking at which ENB I want to use. But really that is where it is starting to get crazy chaotic in options. So many options, and so many sub requirements for some. *sigh* indecisiveness fatigue for sure picking out which graphics mods to jump in with and what texture mods will fit my visual preferences the most.
Guess that is all I have to say about me without getting to personal about myself.
Slightly personal but not identity revealing part of myself. I like a wide variety of music, books and movies, the I like everything clique I know. a small exception overly romance driven media(not because it's for women but usually lacks originality in the realm of character conflict and growth) Show me a game, movie, song or book that is original and thought provoking and I become the boy at the end of A Princess Bride that doesn't really mind the kissing scene at the end of the story. Even before I was but especially as a parent I am not nor have been a fan of bullying. The only time I made an exception was in reddits /roastme and even then I felt dirty participating. To each there own I won't judge anyone for participating in something like that.
Look forward to meeting you all.

Welcome @txdust80 to GUN. Your wall of text made me smile...enthusiasm for modding is always welcome. You'll find beside the mods, lots of others with a passion for games and modding who can be very helpful when you hit the wall (it will happen). I'll post the same links here for the stickies that will help answer some questions. Enjoy!

@"jacoboriley" Thanks I did read those in the FAQ when I got the initial roadblock trying to access the mod I was told to find but is in a private area to understand what that meant.  The rules and guidelines is why I decided to stick around.  I'm not a fan of toxic communities so before reading the guideline rules I was not expecting to flex my account in the forum, since tech related communities can be some of the most toxic ones apart from political ones.  I appreciate many of the rules stated in the guideline.  The only one I will have to watch myself over is, 5) No thread Necromancy or Bumping.  But I will try keep any "necromancy" desires in check and defiantly won't be intentional about it.
