"Area 51 - Project Roswell" (A51-PR) adds a new quest and medium sized dungeon to the world of Fallout New Vegas.

If the Courier is feeling curious he may travel to the relatively untouched pre-war ruins of Area 51. There are new items to discover and new enemies to encounter.

To begin the adventure, your character should receive a letter. This will start the quest and direct you to the "Military Service Tunnel" on the northern edge of the map - North-East of Brooks Tumbleweed Ranch and North-West of Horowitz Farmstead. If you do not know where these locations are they can be viewed on the Fallout wiki:

- A new worldspace - Area 51
- A new quest.
- A new medium sized dungeon to explore
- Restored cut content
- New Armour
- New Weapons
- New Recipes
- New items
- New enemies

See FAQ for more details and spoilers.

This plugin makes changes to the following FNV assets:

If you have a mod which edits any of these it may cause
incompatabilities, it is recommended that A51-PR loads after any conflicting esp files.

Who are the new enemies?
There are two new factions. The first you will be fighting
against are a new raider gang the "Riders" who carry unique
biker helmets. The other new faction are the U.S Army Remnants who carry an assortment of pre-war military tech.

How does the gas grenade work?
The gas grenade functions similar to the Bio-Gas Canister from Point Lookout, it creates a flammable cloud wherever it detonates that lasts for 10 seconds before dispersing. During this time it can be ignited by any normal means (flames, gun fire, explosions).

How does the stun grenade work?
The stun grenade works differently between the player and NPCs. For NPCs it has a knockdown and short paralysis effect, whereas for the Player it creates a visual disruption effect.

How do the cryo weapons work?
The cryo grenades and mines function exactly the same as the Mothership Zeta counterparts. The only difference being their model and textures. (The originals are not in the FNV game files).

Where is the key to General Turner's nuka-fridge?
It is located on top of the first desk in the Level 4
observation room.

You say the mod does not carry over any F3 resources yet you include the WPNDLC05AlienRifleReload sound, why?
The sound is not from F3 but is actually an original I made by mixing together the rifle pickup sound and the recharger rifle reload noise. It is named as it is to make the Alien Rifle reload sound work (previously it was silent).

How do I get into the Research Facility?
You first need to get the Office Key from General Turner's body (Located in Hangar 02 by the research terminal). You can then get the access codes from his office terminal (located on the top floor of the control station).

How do I get into L2-C?
You need to get the keycard from the ghoul technician's body located at the end of the huge pipe in L2-M.

How do I get into L3?
You need to go into L2-C and follow the corridors and tunnels right round to the very end where the Ghoul Commando is located. The L3 keycard is on the table.

How do I lower the forcefield in L3?
You need to head into the reactor room and choose the necessary command from the terminal at the very top.

How do I lower the radiation levels in the reactor?
You need to head to the utility room by the monorail. In the second room there is a terminal with the necessary command.

Where do I get the keycard to L4?
There are two options. Firstly you can get the access codes to the Command Centre from a terminal in the dorms, inside the command centre is a Ghoul Officer who carries a keycard. Secondly (if your character is weak) you can get a keycard from a safe in the last dorm room. You can pick the lock or use Science to hack the nearby terminal to open it.

How do I get past the decontamination chamber in L4?
You need to be wearing the Hazard Suit. You can get this by firstly gaining access to the Observation Room, then unlocking the Surgery door through the relevant terminal and finally taking the suit off of the dead scientist.
