Welcome to Nevada Skies 2281, the most up-to-date and advanced weather mod for Fallout: New Vegas on the Nexus.
Besides 400+ weather types, Nevada Skies also features a wide range of functions allowing you to costumize it according to your liking.

A huge Thanks to DarkPopulous for this insane good Showcase.

It has now been about 2 years since I received Yossarian's permission to maintain Nevada Skies.
We had good and bad times, good and less-than optimal updates along the way, good choices but also mistakes were made.
It was a long and stony road to get to this point, and I fully admit that I also made some bad decisions along the way - but the end result is all that matters.

I present to you Nevada Skies 2281, my final and major update to the mod. From this day onwards, I won't provide any further support or updates to it.
I spent a lot of time to ensure everthing works as intended. I apologize if any mistakes or bugs are left in the mod - I am only human, I make mistakes.

  • From Ancient (1.4) to Final:
  • Moved the terminal system to an MCM system for easier configuration.
  • Updated scripts to benefit from JIP LN NVSE and xNVSE functions.
  • Effects scripts have been fully updated to ensure the transitions work better and performance cost is minimized to almost zero.
  • Updated all sound files.
  • Old addons have been recreated and integrated into the MCM so you can simply toggle them on/off.
  • Converted esm/esp into a single .esp which contains everthing.
  • Added an FX Editor heavily inspired by Dynavision V3.
  • Integrated a sound effect volume control system by popular demand.
  • Climate list has been reworked to suit the different worldspaces much better than before.
  • DLC integration has been fully reworked to ensure that Moods work in them. (Yes, this includes Dead Money)
  • A brand new Interior Lighting Overhaul which features a Fake Sky Remover, Fake Light Remover, etc.
  • The new Interior Overhaul also can affect any custom Interior by default if you wish so.
  • Added some QoL features such as the mod remembering settings across saves.
  • Nevada Skies also features multi-language support by default. (Currently fully supports English Italian, and German. Doesn't fully support  French and Spanish.)

Highly customizable
Easy to use
400+ weathers
QoL changes
Bug fixes
Interior Lighting Overhaul
A lot more
xNVSE 6+
JIP LN NVSE
The Mod Configuration Menu
UIO User Interface Organizer
Johnny Guitar NVSE is required for some optional features, but not a hard requirement.

Snow effect tanks FPS if set to High Quality, the effect mesh is a leftover from the mod's earlier iterations.
Sky Seams - Caused by cloud textures. (I am not able to fix this.)
Gigantic sun - A conflict with EXE.
Fuzzy sky textures.


  • Q: Nevada Skies shows me error messages.
  • A: Read the error message to solve the underlying problem.
  • Q: Where are the optional files?
  • A: They are now included in the main file and can be toggled in the MCM.
  • Q: I dont have the MCM Menu.
  • A: Make sure you have MCM installed properly.
  • Q: I see no new Weathers.
  • A: Make sure Nevada Skies load as last Plugin. Vortex has some issues with it and LOOT doesn't do it correctly.
  • Q: Does the mod affect performance?
  • A: Yes. Extended light source radii can noticeably harm performance if increased via the radius multiplier setting. Snow weather effect will eat FPS if set to High Quality.
  • Q: I don't see all features in MCM.
  • A: Some of the options were moved to a config file which you can find under: Data/Config/NevadaSkies/Advanced.ini
  • I didnt want to include some advanced options in the MCM because of technical issues or because they can cause issues if instructions aren't followed properly.
