What's New[edit]

Version 1.0.0 of the official FalloutNV mod-build guide was basically a love letter to the Fear and Loathing in New Vegas guide by EssArrBee which has been a staple in modding New Vegas for years. However, one has to realize that the guide hasn't been updated for years and many of the mods listed there are no longer up to the quality standards for a complete, crash-free experience. The current version 1.1.0 therefore deviates from the idea of succeeding "Fear and Loathing in New Vegas" in favor of following more up-to-date tendencies in New Vegas modding. The concepts followed when creating Version 1.1.0 are as follows:

1. Troubleshooting potential "bad" mods that can negatively impact performance:
2. Choosing fixes over added content:
  • Weapon Mesh Improvement Mod (WMIM) nowadays is pretty much an essential bugfix at the level of YUP and Unofficial Patch NVSE Plus. Unfortunately, it is incompatible with WMX, which means that
  • WMX and all related patches had to be removed from the modlist.
  • GRA Merged was brought in to replace certain aspects of WMX.
  • Laser Weapon Iron Sights adds iron sights to all energy weapons in the game, so they will no longer look weird in comparison to "conventional" guns. It is incompatible with WMX as well and another reason to remove the latter from the modlist. It is also incompatible with most of the texture mods that affect energy weapons.
  • adding various other mods that fix aspects of the game.
3. Improving combat animations - Basically the "Animation & Physics" section was reworked.

An in-depth changelog is listed below.

System Setup Guide[edit]

The System Setup Guide is an integral component of all Step mod-build guides and should be completed early as indicated in all mod-build guide instructions.

Changelog Format[edit]

The changelog format has been modified to improve readability, group like-changes together, and include more information about changes made. We hope these updates will help to improve workflow when updating to a new version.

Improved Guide Workflow[edit]

The workflow of mod-build guides has been revised to both reduce page length of guide pages and to facilitate simper updating from version to version. A great deal of consideration was given to the user experience. Step's updated mod-build guides require much less off-guide navigation, because mod installation instructions now make use of collapsible elements within the 'ModGroup' tables themselves.

New 'ModGroup' Tables[edit]

Mod are grouped together based on standardized, logical categories called 'ModGroups' that maximize differentiation while minimizing conflicts. These ModGroups are the same across all game-specific mod-build guides. This improves mod list organization while also reducing the need to hide individual mod assets; thus, improving workflow and reducing the potential for user error from missed steps.

Step Patches[edit]

Also see the forum topic.

Step Patch - Conflict Resolution The main conflict resolution patch is required for the intended mod build to function properly. Mods on which the CR patch depends are indicated by a vertical green bar to the left of the mod name in ModGroup tables.
