xNVSE

Installation instructions:

  1. Click the nvse_6_2_4.7z link to download the file
  2. From the downloaded archive, extract the contents of the archive to the game's Root folder
  3. nvse install
nvse_steam_loader.dll is still needed with the GOG version of the game.

- An updated version of NVSE, which extends the scripting capabilities of the engine and is essential for most mods

4GB Patcher

This mod is still needed with the GOG version of the game for the NVSE integration.

Installation instructions:

  1. Download the Main File - FNV 4GB Patch 1.4
Although there is a newer version of the mod available (version 1.5), it does not have any technical differences other than not requiring the 2017 VC++ Redists and therefore is not needed, especially since Mod Organizer 2 already requires the 2017 Redists.
  1. From the downloaded archive, extract the .exe file to the game's Root folder
  2. Right-click on FalloutNVpatch.exe and select Run as administrator
  3. A command prompt window will open and should say FalloutNV.exe patched!
  4. Close the command prompt and a file named FalloutNV_backup.exe should appear in the game's Root folder

- Makes the game large address aware, meaning it can use 4GB of RAM instead of 2GB

From now on, you should run the game through the New Vegas option in MO2, rather than the NVSE option. This mod makes the game auto-load NVSE when you run the game through the default executable, which is generally the safer option.

New Vegas Heap Replacer

Installation instructions:

  1. Download the Main File - NVHR 3.2 using the Manual Download button
  2. From the downloaded archive, run the cpu_info.exe
  3. A command prompt will appear and it will say which version of the mod you should use
  4. nvhr command prompt
Pay attention to the line that says => Use <=. For me it says AVX2, but it may be different for you.
  1. Back in the downloaded archive, open the folder's which name corresponds to the version that the command prompt told you to use
  2. From that folder, extract the d3dx9_38.dll to the game's Root folder

- Replaces the game's heap management system with a much faster hand-written version, which can lead to large performance gains

JIP LN NVSE Plugin

If you do not know what these instructions mean, or how to install mods with MO2, read the Mod Installation Advice section from the MO2 page

JohnnyGuitar NVSE

Installation instructions:

  1. Click the JohnnyGuitar.NVSE-4.20.7z link to download the file
  2. Finish the installation normally through MO2

- Another NVSE extension similar to JIP LN

New Vegas Anti-Crash

New Vegas Tick Fix

- Enables/disables certain settings within the INI to achieve the best balance between performance and stability

Mod Limit Fix

Installation instructions:


- Raises the game's plugin limit to 255 and improves performance/load times, even if you are far below the plugin limit

OneTweak

Although this mod is on the Skyrim Nexus, it will still work fine for New Vegas provided you follow the installation instructions. If you plan on playing in windowed mode, you should skip this mod.

Installation instructions:

  1. Download the Main File - OneTweak 2.1.0.2 using the Manual Download button
  2. From the download archive, extract OneTweak.ini and OneTweak.dll from OneTweak 2.1.0.2\SKSE\plugins\ to Fallout New Vegas\Data\NVSE\Plugins\
  3. Once the files have been extracted, click the mo2 ini button button at the top of MO2 and select INI Editor
  4. Select the FalloutCustom.ini tab
  5. Set bFull Screen to 0

- Enables borderless windowed mode for safe alt-tabbing

Console Paste Support

Installation instructions:


- Adds Ctrl+V as a hotkey to paste into the in-game console, along with a few other helpful shortcuts

Testing Utilities

In some rare cases, Mod Organizer 2 has issues handling .DLL files and they won't load in-game. If you can not get any of the mods in this section to work per the following instructions, then you should try installing the mods directly into the game's Data folder rather than through MO2. The files from the mods should end up in Fallout New Vegas\Data\NVSE\plugins (the same folder as the files from OneTweak).
  1. Launch the game using the New Vegas option in MO2 (NOT the NVSE option)
  2. Once the game has reached the main menu, hit the ~ key (above the tab key) to open the console
  3. Enter GetNVSEVersion, and the console should print NVSE version: 6
  4. Next, enter GetIsLAA, and the console should print GetIsLAA >> 2
  5. Next, enter IsDLLLoaded d3dx9_38, and the console should print IsDLLLoaded "d3dx9_38.dll" >> 1
  6. Next, enter IsDLLLoaded NVAC, and the console should print IsDLLLoaded "nvac.dll" >> 1
  7. Next, enter IsDLLLoaded NVTF, and the console should print IsDLLLoaded "nvtf.dll" >> 1
  8. Next, enter IsDLLLoaded mod_limit_fix, and the console should print IsDLLLoaded "mod_limit_fix.dll" >> 1
  9. Next, enter IsDLLLoaded OneTweak, and the console should print IsDLLLoaded "onetweak.dll" >> 1
