About this mod

This mod aims to entirely redesign the game's many loading screens and the main start screen, with high-resolution images, and a larger load screen variety.
In addition, a major goal of this project will be to have much more intelligently chosen loading tips with images that more correctly correspond with the tips displayed. (WIP)

This mod aims to entirely redesign the game's many loading screens and the main start screen, with high-resolution images, and a larger load screen variety. In addition, a major goal of this project will be to have much more intelligently chosen loading tips with images that more correctly correspond with the tips displayed (WIP).

New in v0.0.6:
  • TTW version updated (Version 3.2).
New in v0.0.5:
  • Version updated again (Version 2.9.4).

New in v0.0.4:
  • Version updated again (Version 2.9.3).
  • Obsidian screen slightly edited.

Update: 2-24-15:
  • A lower resolution 1080p copy is now available for those with older monitors.

New in v0.0.3:
  • Version updated again (Version 2.8.1).

New in v0.0.2:
  • Updated slide to reflect the newest version of TTW, as of this writing (Version 2.8).

Included in v0.0.1:
  • Start Menu Initial background texture (the first background shown once the start menu is reached)
    • This Image is a clearer high resolution copy of the default New Vegas version (without that weird red vignette). 
    • The image looked fine when I found so I didn't feel the need to apply any alterations to it myself.
  • The four startup screens that are shown upon game launch have been replaced.
  • The legal screen now contains the copyright licensing information for both Fallout 3 and New Vegas. This is set atop of official Bethesda art for Fallout 3.
  • The Bethesda Softworks screen has been replaced by a screen containing the logo of Bethesda Game Studios, on top of a high resolution copy of what is likely one of the most iconic pieces of official game art for Fallout 3.
    • I felt this it was more fitting to have both load screens devoted to the developers of each game rather than leaving one out in place of the publisher.
  • The Obsidian Entertainment screen now contains their logo set atop a piece of official game art for New Vegas DLC.
  • The final screen (the "please stand by" slide in vanilla New Vegas) has been replaced by an image of a terminal screen edited to contain a TTW title and the current version (2.7.3) typed on the terminal screen
    • I will edit the version number displayed on this screen to display the current version of TTW when newer versions are released. I will post the .psd of this image for any that are using an older version of TTW so they could manually edit it if they so wish.
    • I could not find any original source for the terminal image beyond anonymous postings on several different wallpaper websites, so I am assuming it doesn't have any form of licensing that would prevent me from using it in this mod.

To be included in future revisions:
  • Roulette wheel replacement.
  • Intelligent load screens
  • Custom screens
  • Menu color tweaks
  • Possibly, enhancement patches for popular mods that alter overhaul perks, so that the perk loading tips aren't giving the vanilla perk descriptions when they aren't applicable.
  • Yet unknown functionality.

Installation Instructions: 
  • Install with your favorite Mod Manager, or drag and drop files into the data folder.
Make sure you have working archive invalidation.
As is likely indicated in the title, A Tale of Two Wastelands is required.

Uninstalling:
  1. See above, do the opposite ^
  2. Go back to your life and try to fill the empty hole in your heart were high definition joy used to live.
  3. Reflect on the mistakes you have made.

All images are formatted at for best fit on 2560 x 1440 displays. Though they should operate fine on any display with a 16:9 aspect ratio (16:10 displays should work fine as well, though the images will be slightly cropped at the sides. 4:3 displays will have more severe cropping)

Images edited in Adobe Photoshop CS6.

Current Bugs:
  • (Very Minor) The load screen that one of these files replaces is utilized by the loading screens on the tranquility lane level, so it will show the TTW logo when loading between cells there which some users might find mildly distracting (though must likely won't care). This will be fixed in the next version to have a more appropriate screen selection.

*Disclaimer* This mod will in no way:
  • Protect the user from any sort of Garry related injury or death as a result of them not being Garry.
  • Remove the unshakable permanent regret that only comes with the consumption of any sort of hot-pocket or hot-pocket adjacent "food" substance,
  • Provide dangerous subliminal messaging turning users into a vessel of darkness 
  • Hsiuqniler ruoy luos ot eht krad drol Bubezleeb! Uoy lliw dneb ot eht lliw fo eht taerg retsam dna eht dlrow lliw nrub ni eht lanrete erif fo noitanmad!

Feel free to contact me on TTW or on Nexus with any bugs or concerns you may have any of your own high-resolution fallout art that you feel should be included.
