Welcome Courier!
New Vegas has and has always had a particular problem:

Vanilla map markers, particularly in the Vegas area are lacking in both placement and efficiency for fast travelling.

Take the strip in vanilla Vegas. In order to reach South Vegas (Vault 21, NCR Embassy, Michael Angelo's Workshop) you are required to first travel to The Strip North Gate, pass a load-screen onto The Strip, walk the entire length of said Strip entering through two more load doors en-route, before finally arriving at your destination. Even with mods like "The Strip Open" - you are still required to pass a load door & walk the entire length of The Strip. This is inconvenient, slow and cumbersome.

Firstly,  Ever find a really cool unmarked location but need to consult a wiki just to navigate back to it?

Why climb fortification hill every-time you want to converse with Caesar? Why pass multiple load doors on the way to Old-Mormon Fort? Why are various
quest-centric locations without a marker? Why are places like Papa Khan's Longhouse locked behind prohibitively long walks through Red Rock Canyon? Why does Nellis AFB need to be so frustrating to traverse?

Well no more! With this mod I aim to solve all of this and more. All locations are hidden until discovered maintaining game balance, while making traversal of the Mojave just that little more pleasant.

This plugin additionally adds map markers to several unmarked locations that might easily be overlooked or impossible to find for the average player without a wiki such as the Deathclaw Promontory or Lakelurk Cove

If there is a need, I may expand this mod to include the official DLC's however I'm not sure if there are any glaring issues with the map markers in the FNV downloadable content.

Whether you intend on using fast travel or navigating the Mojave purely via pip boy maps, I believe your play-through will benefit massively from the installation of this mod.

I suppose your first question is simply why? why make this when similar mods already exist?

This mod started as a personal project for my own play-through of New Vegas, existing plugins although great didn't quite satisfy my preference of locations covered & volume of said locations I believed necessary to truly overhaul the map marker problem in New Vegas.

Additionally, other map marker overhauls are dated and to my knowledge not actively maintained. I aim to maintain and open this mod to community suggestions, below is a complete list of new map markers added in this mod.

If you think I've missed something or believe a certain location would benefit from the addition of a marker, don't hesitate to get in touch (see the contact section below). If it makes logical & technical sense to add your suggestion, I'll be sure to implement it at earliest convenience.

The eventual goal of this mod is to become the most extensive & well polished map marker overhaul available for Obsidian's Mojave masterpiece.

Convinced? let's move onto installation.

The following section covers installation of this mod, it's a fairly simple affair as far as mods go but please read this section carefully and follow all the below instructions.

Before proceeding, check you have satisfied the following requirements: (Mandatory)

  • Fallout: New Vegas up to date
  • Installed NVSE (xNVSE Preferred) & JIP LN Plugin
  • Your preferred Mod Manager is up to date and ready to go! (if you plan on using one, although - you really should)
Once you are happy that you at least satisfy the above minimum requirements follow either method 1 or 2:

Method 1) Install with preferred mod manager of choice (Recommended)
Method 2) Drag and drop Data folder into your Fallout: New Vegas directory.

Once you have installed as above, you can navigate to the included .ini file (NVMMP.ini) and select which markers you would and would not like included. The default configuration enables all markers. 

IMPORTANT: I suggest you load this after any mod(s) which modifies the Pip-Boy UI / Map

As above, I ask you read this section carefully if you wish to remove this mod. Similarly with installation, it's quite simple.

Again, Follow either method 1 or 2:

Method 1) Uninstall with preferred mod manager (Recommended)
Method 2) Remove/delete NVMMP.esp & NVMMP.ini from the data folder.

Although I recommend using the first method. If you choose to follow the second method please be careful that you only delete the file(s) listed above. You don't want to go deleting vanilla files or assets from other mods! I have highlighted what you need to delete in bold and underlined the direct folder where this should exist. 

The following 50+ locations have received map markers where there were once none:

I've also added a few areas, particularly in Freeside that aren't necessarily locations in isolation but will provide convenient travel around the area.
