Question

So after using Nexus Mod Manager (NMM) for a long time I decided to use Mod Organizer (MO) v1.3.8 to install my mods later. I completely uninstalled and reinstalled New Vegas, started it vanilla and exited. I started up NMM and I told it where to find the newly installed New Vegas. After that, I saw all my old mods that I had previously installed and still had Archive Invalidation enabled.

 

I saw a video about MO and decided to use that instead. I installed MO to the default location of program files(x86)\Mod Organizer which I know realize was a bad idea. Going through the MO tutorial I enabled Auto Archive Invalidation and copied the default profile making my own. I installed some basic UI mods which worked just fine, but it's when I started installing texture mods that I noticed something strange. Some textures just wouldn't show up no matter what I did. I tried disabling and enabling Auto Archive Invalidation, using the Archive Invalidation Invalidated mod with Auto Archive Invalidation off and on but nothing seemed to fix this.

 

Ignoring all this I made a new copy of the Default profile with Auto Archive Invalidation on and followed the entire STEP guide for New Vegas. Going into my game, I noticed that mods that effected things such as NPC clothing textures, clutter like cash registers, money, phones and ect. didn't change at all. I had problems with Robert's Male Body mod and Type3 Armor Replacer having the black bar on the chest and mismatched textures on the whole body. I was able to fix it by making a archiveinvalidation.txt with all the texture files listed and putting in the mods install folder for MO. Yet large texture packs like NMC's Texture pack or Poco Bueno Texture pack appeared to work just fine.

For example this mod "Tweaked Cash Register": ( https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/40329/? ) won't work at all, yet this mod "Fallout Food Package Retexture Compilation" :  ( https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/59232/? ) works with and without Auto Archive Invalidation, or any other method of Archive Invalidation enabled. It doesn't seem to matter what profile I use in MO either.

 

I did test these two mods out without MO by simply installing myself into the New Vegas data folder and using the Archive Invalidation Invalidated mod which fixed this problem completely. Every mod I tried out worked flawlessly. Even using NMM allowed these mods textures to show up in my game. For some reason when I try using MO only some mod's textures seem to work.

 

Is there any way to fix this at all? I could just ignore this and play my STEP guided profile but I just really annoys my seeing that low res cash register or phone sitting there in Goodsprings General Store. I would love some help with this, it's driving me insane.

 

I should also mention it's a Steam version of New Vegas and that I uninstalled MO from the default location and re-installed it into New Vegas's install location after all this.

 

TLDR: Some mod's textures just don't show up at all when using Mod Organizer.

 

Thanks

Someone's bound to ask... You probably will need to say what version of Mod Organizer you're using. 

 

Also, try going to the archive tab on MO, click let MO manage archives and then ensure every BSA in the list that CAN be checked is actually checked as a starter.

Just edited my OP with the version number, thanks. Also, doesnt seem to help checking or unchecking any BSA's.

I forget what all that I did to try to fix this issue, but it was possibly fixed by starting MO with admin privileges.

Appreciate the help, but I have UAC disabled. I tried it anyway and no change at all. Any other suggestions?

The problem is that I tried like 3 different things all at once to solve my problem and so I don't know which of them fixed the problem, nor do I remember the other things I tried. :/

Well, I'm just creating ArchiveInvalidation.txt's for any texture mods that dont work and hoping that works as a workaround. Wish you did remember though, would feel so great to fix this.

Oh my god, now I feel dumb. I put the AI.bsa at the top of the list and it works. Just went into the Goodsprings General Store and saw all the new textures were applied like they should be. Such an easy fix too, guess I should have just searched huh? Thanks GrantSP, now I can regain my sanity.

That may have been one of the things I tried.  Glad to hear that someone thought of that answer.

OK, I've finally started playing for real this time and now I get textures that will randomly change to odd things like teeth or stone. It changes constantly whenever I look around. Seems to happen inside mostly. Oddly enough, I could walk outside and all the textures looked just fine. I've tried disabling and re-enabling Auto Archive Invalidation but it doesn't seem to fix it.

To start with you have way too many plugins. Fallout New Vegas gets flaky above around 140 plugins as mentioned in the Fallout NV guide on the STEP forum. You need to merge or eliminate some of the plugins.

 

Also, please use the spoiler tag when posting large lists.

I was getting the feeling that I did have too many but was unsure. Is there any way to tell what I can merge together or what not to merge together? So as long as it's 140 and below I'm fine and won't see random textures anymore? I manage to reduce it down to 114 plugins, will report if I still see glitched textures. It didnt seem to happen until I got out of Goodsprings and arrived in Primm. Also, I would have used the spoiler tag but I couldn't see where it was when posting. Anyway, thanks for the suggestions.

      Step Fallout: New Vegas Guide 1.0.0 released!

      Guide Link | Changelog | Feedback & Bug Reports
      Nexus Link
      Many thanks to @Majorman for working on this guide for the past 6 weeks as our official FNV guide Curator!
    • By sheson
      This is a beta of [FNV|FO3|FO4|FO4VR|TES5|SSE|TES5VR|ENDERAL|ENDERALSE]LODGen/Edit with terrain LOD meshes and textures generation.
      This is for experienced mod authors and users that know how to use xEdit, xLODGen or DynDOLOD already.
      Installation and Setup
      Download
      xLODGen beta 86 - based on 4.1.4b
      Unzip into a dedicated folder outside of any Steam, game or mod manager folders or special Windows folders like Program Files.
      Rename xLODGen.exe to [game mode]LODGen.exe (TES5LODGen.exe for example) or start with command line parameter -fnv, -fo3, -fo4, -fo4vr, -tes5, tes5vr, -sse, -enderal, -enderalse
      Use -o:"c:\OutputPath\" command line parameter to change where files are generated to, default is the game folder.
      Do not generate into any game or any mod manager folders.
      Requirements
      Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2015, 2017 and 2019 - Required by LODGen.exe/LODGenx64.exe and Texconv.exe/Texconvx64.exe. Get matching platform x86/x64 depending on which xLODGen.exe (x86) or xLODGenx64.exe (x64) is used.
      RTFM and Share Results
      See the included Skyrim-Occlusion-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the Skyrim TVDT Occlusion data generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions or give feedback in the dedicated Skyrim TVDT - Occlusion Data thread.
      See the included Terrain-LOD-Readme.txt for a brief explanation of the settings for terrain LOD generation. Read the hints that are shown when the mouse pointer rests on a setting. Ask specific questions about terrain LOD in this thread for a more in-depth explanation if required and share feedback (with screenshots) about results or problems.
      These tools generate LOD meshes and textures "exactly" like CK, but not like the meshes and textures which are shipping with the games (they are often manually edited).
      However, these tools provide more options and higher resolutions (use the x64 version if there are memory errors because you believe you require 4k or higher) and can be updated to add more useful features and options.
      I did some testing in the different games, but finding the best combinations of options and settings requires lots of testing and are a matter of personal opinion and which game is used, the load order, mods, even different worldspaces probably.
      That means, I am only able to give generic guidelines and hints to send you off to find and test for yourself and share your results. My main interested is that generations works correctly and without problems for now.
      Check out the thread xLODGen Terrain Settings Compare. Also refer to any modding guide which has a list of relevant mods close to your load order.
      The object and tree LOD generation is the same as the current versions of xEdit / xLODGen. Refer to their respective descriptions and explanations.
      Obviously, users of Skryim/Enderal/Skyrim SE/Skyrim VR/EnderalSE continue to use the easier and more comprehensive DynDOLOD for drastically improved object and tree LOD generation and only use xLODGen for terrain LOD (and maybe Occlusion) generation.
      First Time
      Here are suggestion to start without going crazy and that should be quick enough to generate:
      Set quality of meshes for LOD4 to 5 and then +5 for each next level. Or just set levels 8/16/32 to 10.
      Check protect cell borders (yes it fixes the ugly terrain drops at outer cell borders that still exist in Fallout 4).
      Use the max vertices setting only if you want to hard limit max file size.
      In Skyrim Special Edition or Skyrim VR, if you notice terrain briefly flickering when new areas are loading in, set [Display] bEnableLandFade=0 in Skyrim.INI
      Set Optimize Unseen to off for LOD4 for first generation. Start experimenting with a value of 550 with a quality setting of 10 or lower for LOD32 (used for map) and compare coastlines and file size to other settings.
      To quickly generate terrain LOD meshes just for the map, check only terrain LOD Meshes, check the Specific Chunk checkbox and set drop down to 32. Leave SW fields empty for complete map or set SW cell coordinates to same values as a *.btr filename to test a specific area with lots of water, river etc.
      Set texture sizes to 512 for a start. Larger sizes and large world spaces will take a considerable time (like 15 to 30 minutes or more easily). Each higher resolution means quadruple the work.
      Use DXT1 for diffuse and 565 (DXT1 if on Windows 7) for normal maps. If generating for Skyrim Special Edition use BC7. Uncheck mipmaps, raise steepness and Bake normal maps.
      For now, leave the Brightness, Contrast and Gamma at 0 and 1.0 respectively. It seems that only Skyrim CK and Skyrim SE CK are manipulating the intensity of the textures to adjust for the noise.dds and the god awful "improved" snow shader of Skyrim SE (just turn that thing off, really). If textures seem too dark in the game, brighten the noise.dds instead or vice versa. That way you can get perfectly matching LOD textures that look just like the textures in the loaded cells. For Skyrim a good average color of the noise texture seems to be around #C0. See below for a couple noise texture downloads.
      If you want to test larger texture sizes, use the chunk option to limit the number of textures that need to be generated. For example, check [x] Specific chunk, leave the drop down empty and set WS to the lower left cell coordinate of an 32x32 area, like 0, 0. It will then generate all textures up to 31,31. Not all worldspaces have their origin at 0,0 so you will have to check already generated meshes/texture filenames for their lower left coordinates.
      Questions and Feedback
      Obliviously anything related to terrain LOD should be posted in this thread.
      Posts related to Occlusion should be made here.
      Recommended Optionals
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel.esm (Mega)
      TES5-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega), SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Extend.esm (Mega) - These extend the sea of ghost further to the north (see screenshots)
      SSE-Terrain-Tamriel-Full-Extend.esm (Mega) - Entire map from -96,-96 to 95,96 with northern ocean extension. Useful for mod authors.
      Put in game data folder obviously. Adds back terrain for Skyrim (Tamriel worldspace) at the outer edges so there is no missing terrain meshes/textures when generating terrain LOD for Skyrim.
      Load as early with lowest priority as possible, so that any other plugins overwriting or adding land records or cells with the same coordinates take precedence.
      Only required to be loaded when generating terrain LOD. No harm done when loaded in-game but typically the player can not get close to these areas. There are no effects outside the far away added cells.
      Noise
      Single color flat noise, Adjusted vanilla noise, HD Terrain Noise Texture SE
      Examples for Skyrim. Install to game folder like any other texture mod. The noise texture is applied in-game on top of terrain LOD textures, so no effect for LOD generation.
      Only the red channel is used in case the textures is not a grey channel format. MipMaps are ignored. The textures is tiled 3x3 per LOD quad, e.g. for LOD level 4, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 4 cells, for LOD level 8, the noise texture is repeated 3 times to cover 8 cells and so on.
      Test-Terrain-Tamriel.7z
      For testing terrain LOD distances. Plain color terrain LOD textures for Tamriel with coordinates for every LOD quad. Green for LOD 4, yellow for LOD8, blue for LOD 16 and red for LOD 32.
