New to version 1.03:

1. The mod now comes in two version .ESP and .ESM. So you can now make your own mods for the café if you use the ESM version. You can add your own missions, characters, food, go nuts.
2. An outdoor table and chairs have been added to make the place look more alive.
3. A billboard has been added to the roof.

Note. The outdoor chairs are persistent references. I have not used them for anything, but I think that having them as references in the master file should make for more compatibility with future mods to the café.

ESM version requires "FNVD_Ritas_Cafe_ESM_Helper.esp" to be installed too. This file removes the two dumpsters and the wooden boards from in front of the building. It seems ESMs can't remove objects in the render window.
DO NOT USE "FNVD_Ritas_Cafe_ESM_Helper.esp" unless you are also using the ESM version.

New to version 1.02:

1. Nothing, just a compatibility bug fix for NMM.

Questions and Answers:

Q. What is this Cross Mod Communication you speak of?
A. Look here at my upcoming Freeside Hotel mod. I explain it in detail there: http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/54573/

Q. Shouldn't this place have been in the expansions?
A. Yup.

Q. How do I order food?
A. Walk over to a booth and click on the menu. Select the foods and drinks you want then select finish ordering. Your order can then be found on the table.

Q. I hear Rita's pies are outta this world, does Rita sell pies?
A. Yes, She sells Nuka Pies, along with a lot of other food.

Q. Will you ever make an IMPS compatibility patch?
A. Yes, one day.

Q. Does the food ever run out?
A. No, ordered food will always be available. Even if you order 1000 pies you can still order another 1000.

Q. How much does the food cost?
A. All food items costs are unaffected by barter skill. Their cost is the default value that is in The Geck (except when purchased from the bartender). Nuka-Cola has a 20 caps base value, this base value is what is used in the menu prices and is not affected by your barter skill.

Q. Your mod sucks.
A. That's not really a question.

Q. Do I need archiveinvalidation turned on?
A. Yes as it does have some custom meshes and textures.

Q. Does this mod need NVSE?
A. No, but it is compatible with it.

Q. Does this mod work with mods that merge the two sides of Freeside?
A. Yes. Download the optional Open Freeside patch for the appropriate version and set your load order correctly and it should work.

Q. Is this compatible with NVInteriors.
A. Yes, I believe I am running the lastest build of NVInteriors and this does NOT interfere with it.

Q. I still don't know what this mod does, can you tell me?
A. Try Looking at the screenshots.

Q. Would you consider releasing this as an .esm file for the community to make their on mods for?
A. Yes, and I have. I encourage other to make mods for this mod and every mod.

Q. If I make my own .ESP mod for this mod do I have to credit you?
A. Nah, it would still need this one as a master anyway.

Q. Will you allow other to add content to the mod?
A. Of course. Submit you extra content to me and I'll incorporate it into the mod and give you credit where credit is due.

Q. What does FNVD mean?
A. That's an abbreviation of my Nexus account FalloutNVDefault.

Q. That's a stupid account name, why did you pick it?
A. Why did you pick yours?

Note. This mod, like all my other mods, was made for the Disc Version of New Vegas. Does this cause issues, I'm not sure yet.
