About this mod

Adds a colored world map and custom map icons to Fallout New Vegas.

Permissions and credits


So... I was wandering through the wasteland practicing my head-shots on some local geckos when I realized I had gone and got myself lost again! Well no problem I thought I'll just use my trusty pip-boy and get my bearings. That's when the thought hit me harder than a Brahman in mating season. We can blow up the world, we can make all these fancy robots but we still can't manage to get color on our dang pip-boys!

Luckily while I was traveling around the D.C neck of the woods Somewhere around Rivet I stumbled upon a kind young fella named Jarvis. He was quite the intriguing kinda guy, knew all sorts about fancy technologies. OK Yes we knocked boots if you really gotta know. Any-who I remembered what he showed me, ABOUT THE PIP-BOY you pervs, and I figured I'd pass along that know-how to y'all.
