NOTE: The Goldfield Expansion is divided into 2 "Installments" or parts, the first one will end when you gain access to the Echoes of The Divide wich will lead you to Hawthorne and Hawthorne Military Depot in the second "installment" or part. This being said the first one (Tonopah and Goldfield areas ) is finished.

INDIAN SPRINGS (BASE MOD)

Explore the ruins of Indian Springs City which evolved to a bigger city than it was in 2014 after Weapon companies and other military interests established labs and even a ballistic defense station there (smaller than hopeful) on Creech Air Force Base, Now, after the Great War, the city outskirts are nearly untouched and its full of irradiated ghouls that come from the City center. Meet the U.S Army Remnants that have been surviving here for 200 years and discover the mysterious end they faced on their bunker in Creech AFB.


I recommend being level 10 or higher with low-medium equipment before starting here.



GOLDFIELD AREA EXPANSION:
Help Goldfield and gain their favor, fight raiders and continue in your search for exploration :)




Features:
-New city called Goldfield nearly untouched by the War, with new Factions, Quests, Shops etc.)

THIS MOD REQUIRES ALL OFFICIAL DLCS:


My G.E.C.K messed up and it says it require Gun Runner's Arsenal but it worked fine with no mesh loss or anything without the DLC in my other computer.

Note: If anyone knows how to fix this, tell me. I already tried FNVEDIT but it keeps corrupting my file.
And if someone has problems for launch without Gun Runner's, please tell me for adding it to Required files)

If you find Grammar errors, I'm sorry. English is not my first language XD
(Note from editor: Not anymore!!! xD -Gobananas01)

-----------------------------------------------------------

CHANGELOG:


GOLDFIELD AREA EXPANSION:

features:
-New city called Goldfield nearly untouched by war, with new factions, quests, shops etc)
-New areas & dungeons Like the Nevada Test Site Facilities or the ruins of Tonopah .
-Wildlife.... (Be careful with bears and other things.)


-New Enemies thanks to CIB for his Monster Mod Pack
-More to come. It's actually WIP.
-Vertibird to move from Goldfield to Mojave and Vice Versa (when you unlock it.)

Fixes:
-Fixed the no ending for choosing not to launch in die you little communist! quest.
(Now you can go away after activating the preparation button and end the quest by exiting the command room before launch)

-Revised all the quests on Indian Springs fixing some errors and bugs.

-Fixed numerous bugs in navmeshing and AI.

-Corrected missplaced items like the snow globe.

-Removed Video because it takes up too much space and it's a low res video. I replaced
with a ingame launch (Look for it when you get out of the bunker after taking the launch decision.)

-Added some text boxes that appear when you use locked doors to give clues where to find the key

-And others that I don't remember.

------------------------------------------



Compability:


With all mods that don't modify the north west (north of jacobtown) highway.
I know of mods that may give problems: (Warzones)

Recomended mods:
http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/42136/? ---MoMod Wasteland edition

I nearly shit my pants when I turned around and saw a fucking reanimated zombie in the sewers.

http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/45392/? - Ghouls only die with headshots

MoMod is even more awesome with reanimating ghouls running in your back in the middle of the night.


http://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/43135/? - NMCs Texture Pack For New Vegas

Makes the mod look much better graphically.


------------------------------------------
Incompatibility/errors


-Possible error with any flora overhauls, some people get big trees on the highway, there is no big trees here, just yucca and desert bushes.

-If you use any climate mods, you will lose the ambience of the mod or even maybe notice (surely) the lack of LOD, possible future fix.
----------------------------------------

Troubleshooting:


-CTD: Please install the requirements first and ensure that you have Honest Hearts and Lonesome Road DLC's installed.

I get exclamation marks where my meshes should be!!: Maybe I missd something, or you installed this mod wrong. To double check, do a manual install. (Extract to data folder)

-My companion gets stuck on door or other places: May or not happen, I'm actually working on fixing any posible navmesh errors, please report them in bug forums tab.

-Captain Forrester doesn't give more than 1 quest at time: Close and reopen the dialogue box.

Issues:


-Possible companion trap after exiting Goldfield Authorities Building

To fix it just enter other interior and Voila! Your companions are back.
