Disclaimer: Following this guide will break your game. We'd just argue that it will be so worth it in the end. This guide and these patches will NOT receive support from the mods they patch, so please don't harass mod authors if something goes wrong. Mod at your own risk. If you are trying to pull off half the stunts we did, you likely waive your ability to ask for technical support from any but the most patient of people. ALL issues with this guide should be directed to this page. Nowhere else. And even we might only be of so much help. This guide is built around Fallout New California and Tale of Two Wastelands using our Star the Wandering Courier mod. It is FULLY compatible with both Fallout New California AND Tale of Two Wastelands. If someone told you otherwise, they LIED to you.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fallout New Vegas is largely considered one of the best games ever made because of its expansive take on choice-driven storytelling and worldbuilding. However, it has many shortcomings that originate from the fact that Obsidian (the original makers of Fallout) was only given a single year by Bethesda (the owners of Fallout) to make the game, in addition to the fact that every year a game made in 2010 looks more and more dated, even with its amazing narrative. Fortunately, on sites such as this, hundreds of talented people have endeavored to make it a better game over the past decade.

We sought out to make a guide on how to cram as many good mods into Fallout New Vegas as possible, to make one of the best games into THE best game ever, with hundreds of hours of rich, story-driven content. It’s a complicated process, but the resulting game is worth the effort for us. With this guide, perhaps it will be for you.

Mission Statement
When it comes to modding a game, the discretion is ultimately left to the individual aggregating mods. Therefore, some modded copies of New Vegas look very different. We had to decide up-front how we envisioned an ideally-modded New Vegas game. Thus we created our mission statement for this guide.
