Permissions and credits
LD's Improved New Vegas!
This mod restores some "cut" content, enables disabled creatures and NPC's, gives some NPC's improved AI Packages, and more.
A lot of NPC's and creatures were disabled in the first patches of New Vegas as the consoles couldn't handle it. I have enabled a lot of creatures and NPCs along the roads between Goodsprings and Primm, and Nipton and Novac, and so on. 

What this mod does:

  • Improves/Overhauls the New Vegas world. Bringing life to the Mojave.
  • Gives some NPCs improved AI Packages
  • Adds/restores NPCs to certain locations
  • Makes locations feel more lived in

Potential Issues:

  • The 188 Trading Post can cause the game to freeze briefly when entering the cell
  • Some added Boomers are female and have facial hair
  • Prospectors in Novac when spooked run into the Dino-Bite Gift Shop and never stop running around...

If anyone knows how I can fix the prospectors, that would be great

This mod is a work in progress. I intend to update it and add/restore more in the future.

I will go through and list everything I have done.


When the town is restored, the Primm residents will now leave their homes and visit the casino and walk around outside. Originally, when you first visit Primm, the residents are hiding in the casino from the powder gangers. If you side with Primm and take out the powder gangers, the Primm residents go to their homes and never come back out. Now they are free!

Ruby Nash can now visit the casino and walk around outside instead of standing in one place. 
Disabled some bits of blood outside of the casino as they don't auto disable when the casino is restored.

Added PrimmResident3 as she was not added.
Added a fire barrel by the Primm homes.
Added a campfire by the Primm homes.

Fixed their ai packages as Alexander has two guarding during the day and two at night.
They take turns sleeping.

Added 188JunkVendor.Added 188MercA, and B.
I assume the two mercs guard the Junk vendor, but the Junk vendor and mercs have no AI Packages. I haven't set up the junk vendor as a vendor yet.

Enabled 188NCRTrooperA, B, C, D, E, and F. One or two of them were already enabled.
Enabled EnableHeavyTroopersMarker (Xmarker0000003B) I'm not sure if this gets enabled automatically mid game.

Enabled CrBrahminWater. There was a disabled water Brahmin at the 188.

I assigned Alexandar his own bed next to where he stands.
The other two beds are set to owned by faction GunRunnerFactionNV. So only the Gun Runners use those beds. (Alexanders guards.)

Added 3 Prospectors near the Arms Merchant truck. Just to add a little life to the 188.VspawnProspectorAll. They will be randomized.

Added 5 custom randomized NPC's. They will sandbox the 188 and sleep at night if they can.

Added 3 more NPC's at the front of the Mojave Outpost

Added some more NCR troops who sandbox around the Outpost.

Added a patrolling NCR Troop who walks out just past the NCR Ranger statue to the leftof it to survey the surrounding area.
This adds a lot of life to the Mojave Outpost. Maybe too much... 

The road from Goodsprings to Primm:

VES03WastelandAdventurer added. This is a fully voiced NPC who gives tips of the surrounding area.
They were cut from the game. I added them to their original location at the highway across fromJean Skydiving. Also at Jean Skydiving there was a disabled NPC, I have enabled them. I later found out they werepart of a quest with the Powder Gangers, so I will have to disable them at some point.

Enabled a Goodsprings NPC at the garden to the left of the general store.

Set VCG02GSSettler to essential. She is the settler you can save from the Goodsprings water source. Undone

I changed the look of GSSettlerCF as she looks the same as the settler at the Goodsprings water source.

I opened up a bordered up house and I set it to Sunny Smiles home.

I opened up another bordered house for Easy Pete.

Trudy has her own house as well now.

Originally, they all crowded in one house along with other settlers, and it was first come first serve for whoever makes it to the bed first... lol.

GSSettlerAAM has their sleep packaged moved to GSHouseInterior03
LDsGoodspringsSettlerFemale added.
She sleeps at GSHouseInterior03. She does farming during the day and eats at the saloon.

This is a caravan which has it's own route and it starts at Aerotech, but it was disabled.
I don't think I've seen them roaming around, so I'm not sure where they go...

1ERefugeeAAM added
1ERefugeeCM2 added
1ERefugeeHM added

These NPC's were found in the game files. I added them to the Aerotech location as their sandbox is set at the Aetotech location. But it's actually set outside, so I moved it inside because when it's outside, they just stand at the door.


Enabled 5 Bighorners in the pen.

Grub N' Gulp:

Added more beds.

Made Fitz and Lupe essential as they can easily die to the Legion who spawn right across the highway.

NCR Sharecroppers Farms:

The NCR Farm is a very quiet and deserted place.

1ESharecropperHF enabled
1ESharecropperCF enabled

There is a HM Sharecropper presumably disabled, but is located somewhere underground. I removed their NPC and readded them.

Added 3 bedrolls to the Sharecroppers barracks for the enabled Sharecroppers.

Added 1 NCR Trooper at the Sharecropper gate. They sandbox outside and use lots of idle markers I added.

LDsSharecropperRandom01 x4 added

Camp McCarran Exterior:

Their patrol path seems to be unfinished and I haven't seen them around since enabling them. They must have wandered off.

VSpawnOVWSCitizenD enabled
LvlWestsideCitizen x6 enabled

Added VSspawnOVWSCitizenHOld


VOVDefenderMale added
VOVDefenderFemale added
Just outside, right next to the Thorn enterance, I added them. They seem to be cut defenders of westside.They have no AI Package, so I given them a sandbox AI Package. They are not essential, but they will eventually respawn after they die.

VspawnOVWSCitizenG, J, K, F, and M. Added to exterior of Westside.
These 4 citizens farm outside where the crops are as nobody takes care of them.
F has been removed and I added M. Because F is the actorbase and I need to remove their AI Packages to createmy own for farming.
Oh wait. All the citizens have their own actorbase. I will have to take an actorbase from an untouchedone if I ever need to get their AI Packages back...Nevermind! Their AI Packages work fine where they are.

VspawnOVWSCitizenO, R, T, W, and X added.
Added to exterior of Westside at the larger farm near the Thorn enterance.

These Westside citizens enter Westside when they want to sleep at night. I will eventually make an interior where they go to sleep as there's not enough beds for them all.


Enabled the two jet streams.

You can hardly see them working, but it's nice knowing they work.
This is all I've done here so far at the DAM.

Crimson Caravan:


LvlCrimsonCaravanTraderGuard enabled
LvlCrimsonCaravanTrader enabled
LvlCrimsonCaravanTraderBrahmin enabled
They reside outside. I believe they have their own AI Package and patrol route.

CrimsonCaravanGuardAAF, AF, CF, CM, HF, and HM added.

Added lots of idle markers around the grounds. Leaning markers, and farming markers.

Added two prospectors who roam.
VSpawnProspectorAll x2

These added Crimson Caravan guards and Traders come out at night. They share the same bedsas the existing guards and traders. This makes Crimson Caravan busy at all times. As it's a caravan company, it wouldn't just shut down at night. They overlap at some point in the evening so it's extra busy.


Underpass is a cut town in New Vegas. I taken the opportunity to make it my own town...
I have added a lot of the cut NPC's to this location such as, Billy Bettis and Xa Mo. They live here now. And I have also added the original settlers of this town.

UnderpassCitizen01, 02, 03, 04, 05, and 06 added.
They have AI Packages and sleep in the buildings at night.

UnderpassMayor added.

Disabled 3 Brahmin as they are crazed Brahmin and the Underpass Citizens attack them.

Added 4 matresses in the caravan and added pathing to the caravan. So NPC's can enter and sleep.

Added lots of idle markers around the town. NPC's will do farming during the day, and they will eat at lunch time.

Added 3 Brahmin.
Added Xmarker for Brahmin.

Added 3 prospectors.

BoomerMessAM enabled
BoomerMessHF x2 enabled
BoomerMessAAF x2 enabled
BoomerMessAF x2 added
Boomer10F enabled
Boomer12M enabled
BoomerCook3M enabled
Boomer00FFarmer enabled
Boomer01MFarmer enabled
Boomer00MFarmer enabled
BoomerFrontGateGuard1 enabled

All BoomerMess NPC's have NellisBoomerMess24AIPackage as their only AI Package. It has a radius of zero.
Even existing Mess Boomers have the same package. I set it to 500.

There is a strange problem where female boomers that have been enabled now have facial hair whilst looking like a female. I am working on disabling them or trying to change their looks. 

This is everything so far.

I plan to add caravan routes from the Mojave Outpost to Primm and to Goodsprings as there is an unfinished caravan route already there.
I plan to have more NPC's roam around from town to town and reside at the town for a while.

constructive criticism is welcome.

Please let me know if I have made a mistake anywhere and I will try my best to fix it.

And if anyone has any ideas, please let me know. :)

Here is a video I made showcasing my work on Underpass.
