The Best Fallout 3 ENB Presets


Midhrastic ENB for Fallout 3 by midhras

Midhrastic is an ENB configuration for use with Fallout 3 (and possibly also New Vegas). It was based off the ENBseries binary and shader files designed by Boris Vorontsov (of ENBseries is an image post-processing method hugely popular in games such as Grand Theft Auto IV and Skyrim, and many users have designed their own configuration using original and scrounged code and personally tweaked values. I’m a tweaker and scrounger myself. Upon recently discovering that Vorontsov released an experimental binary for use with Fallout: New Vegas, and after trillville (a.k.a. Anthemios) used it to great effect in Fallout 3, I had to try and design my own ENB. What you can download here is the result of that desire. See more >>

Realism ENB 0_237 by Wanny

This is simply an ENB aiming for realistic image. Nothing more, nothing less. Contains a custom weather ESP file and cloud textures to make sure there are no bugs. DLCs are not officially supported as I didn't work on them much (yet) but they will work. DC/Surburban area is partial cloudy, North is overcast and Wasteland East/West is sunny.

It is heavily edited to my taste and may not please everyone. I got a few requests to upload this ENB config so there we are. Hope you enjoy. I won't provide support much as I don't have much time for modding and I hope you understand. See more >>

Lone Wanderer ENB by lonewanderer518

Lone Wanderer ENB will enhance the sense of visual immersion and gameplay. Powered by ENB .161 it uses sun glares, palette based color corrections, bloom, SMAA, SSAO, Indirect lighting, and detailed shadows. Post processing is done with SweetFX. This adds anti-aliasing, Lumasharpen, HDR, DPX, Tonemapping, Vibrance, LiftGammaGain, Dither and Curves . Additionally, the prepass effects have modifications and original tweaks from Kyo and Midhras. These prepass effects bring you tilt-shift, chromatic aberration, sharpening, film grain noise, advanced focus, and bokeh blur with multiple offsets.

Two key characteristics are more realistic colors and depth of lighting. A goal that will continue to be developed is customization. Many variables are being worked on to give the user a chance to adjust this mod to their taste. Revive your game and travel the wasteland as the Lone Wanderer. See more >>

Enb Next Generation by TheRadik

Enb Next Generation is based in two different configurations for a different experience than the original. The Next Generation "F3ProjectRealitymkl" is a configuration adapted for this mod. And the Next Generation Standard is a configuration adapted for itself, but is based mod "Fellout". The Next Generation of configuration F3ProjectRealitymkl fantastic mod, has more variety of climates and some effects, this setup works fine for Fallout 3 DLC. It supports FALLOUT GOTY, and might even be true for New Vegas, but you should get off FN Mkl Project Reality mod for New Vegas to make it work, but for now only recommend using it in Fallout 3, because later I will make a similar setup for Fallout new vegas.

The Next Generation Standard Configuration, stands on its own, does not need to install another mod, and is compatible for Fallout 3, also works for all the DLC, but I found that there may be problems for the nights can be very bright, but could be solved if you download the DLC Support mod "Fellout".

Fallout 3 the Most Popular Guild / Faction Mods

Mothership Zeta Crew by Nylonathathep

So, you've finished playing Mothership Zeta and have conquered your own starship. You are the commander, but your crew consists on a know-it-all brat and an agoraphobic field medic. Not exactly the mightiest army ever, is it? Well, we are going to change that.

Mothership Zeta Crew adds a new faction under your command. It will develop a whole history arc involving the recruitment and commandment of a force comparable with the enclave or the Brotherhood of Steel itself. Can't say much more without spoiling the story! Once the mod is active and you've finished the Zeta add on, a button will appear in the command bridge, on the console at the right of your command chair. Press it and let the story begin! Features:
  • New areas on the ship and outside
  • Hordes of new NPC
  • New unique missions (5 for now)
  • Enclave commander-esque features
  • New Armor
  • New Weapons
  • Special features
  • An epic story arc

MERC 2 by Vforvic and SiN

In Merc 2 you will meet Blain who promises safety and security in exchange for your help in locating a long hidden base. Blain seems to know about both you and your father and promises to help you both. If you follow Blain you could unlock a secret that promises wealth, security and advanced technology. With his help you could forge a new faction in the Wasteland and perhaps tip the balance of power…or others that seek the power could do the same. If you win you could have a powerful new faction to command with new locations, weapons, armor and a safe place to call home.

When I started writing for this mod I had a vision of bringing us back to FO2 where the decisions weren't as clear cut; morality by choice, not by design. The 1.5 version of MERC 2 is the result; NPCs who seem to live and breathe, each trying to make sense of a world that doesn't make sense and where the rules only apply to those who can defend themselves. See more >>

Raiders Regulators Talon Expanded by PimpBot420

This mod attempts to increase the variety of Raiders, Regulators, and Talon company mercenaries that you run across in the wastelands. In addition to a greater variety of equipment, there are a handful of new items that are added. All new items can be found on the appropriate enemy. This mod will not affect any Raiders or mercenaries that have already spawned in your game, only to newly generated enemies.
  • Raiders have received 15 armors, 17 headgear, 14 weapons.
  • Regulators have received 2 armor, 6 headgear, 2 weapons.
  • Talon company has received 2 armor, 6 headgear, 10 weapons.
  • Female Regulators and Talon Company mercs have been added.

8 new armors are introduced: Carnage Hawk Armor, Hand-Me-Down Raider Armor, Highway Scar Armor, Sharp-Dressed Raider's Armor, Regulator Trench Coat, Talon Metal Armor, Regulator Leather Jacket, Talon Recruit's Outfit
11 new headgear are introduced: Hunter's Mask, Hunter's Hat, Regulator's hat, Black Eye patch, Pyro Helmet, Welder's Shade, Anchorite's Helmet, The Devil's Pigtails, Deactivated Slave Collar, Wasteland Flatfoot's Cap, Talon Riot Helmet. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Reillys Rangers Expanded by Tubal

Don't have any reason to return to the Ranger compound after completing Reilly's quest besides the caps? Feel that a mercenary team of 4 seems a bit small to operate in the DC ruins?
Reilly's Rangers Expanded adds new rangers and new features to the compound over time. As you help the rangers to explore they expand their operation.

This initial version adds new rangers as guards for the compound, a merchant, a player-owned tent, a wearable ballistic mask, and a few other minor tweaks. All features will become available by returning to Reilly with mapping data. Currently there is no consideration for how much data is needed, so 1 map marker is all that's needed to unlock another step. Leave the area for a day or so for the expansion to take place. Also re textures the Ranger Battle Armour, and the ranger logos decorating the place. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Fallout Tactics: Redux by Endocore

Over a decade after the release of Fallout Tactics and despite the provision of a set of easy-to-use game editors, FOT remains nearly as lame as ever-- full of bugs, incompetence, negligence, ignorance of Fallout traditions, and unsatisfactory gameplay. Fallout Tactics: Redux is the first comprehensive published effort to reform the standard single-player Fallout Tactics campaign. My Redux mod is a wide-ranging attempt to engage all of these issues and transform the game into something more compelling, since if the game remains in its current (original) state FOT is doomed to be utterly forgotten sooner than later-- and I've always thought that despite its many flaws, key elements of what could be a rather cogent military science-fiction game and perhaps even a respectable Fallout-themed game are present in Microforte's basic materials.No video available. See more >>

Turn-Based Mod by hadack and guz

This Mod tries to balance the game for Multiplayer Death-Matches in Turn-Based Mode. Although it looks like this mode didn't get the same attention from the devs like real-time, there are some things like the way Cars are used and the interrupt system, that are quite well designed and make Multiplayer matches fun to play.

26 new levels starting in TB-Mode, each with a unique goal that applies to reach it, making the matches more eventful - Weight of all items increased - Armors now have different resistances for each damage type - metal is good against explosion, power armor against energy, enivro(now -> combat-armor) against bullets - all Drugs have been completely revised, specializing the caused effect. (e.g. voodoo increases critical chance, but lowers several resistances. or buffout slightly raises strenght & agility but seriously reduces a characters luck ) ... - Drugs and stimpacks have higher chance of overdose, checked against the chars endurance and thus making first-aid and doctor more viable. better forget your all-you-can-eat mentality now - Poison & antidote added - Plasma weapons now inflict area-damage - Some new weapons, explosives, armors and other gadgets - Critical chance of most weapons lowered to make high luck and critical chance more attractive for snipers - In-game descriptions of all items adapted, for most of the changes

Enclave Mod by GunnerShi and RobCo

This mod is one of the best mods ever made for Fallout Tactics. See more here.

Darkfall by Vault-Tec

The player controls a citizen of a town called Forsayth, which is located in the downtown of a pre-war city. At the moment he works as a bodyguard protecting the water caravans. The citizens know only a few small villages near the town. No one left the town for a longer journey. Nobody suspects that in the distant mountains, snow-covered mountains, lies a city called Brek Zarith. It's Council of the Fourth usurps themselves a right to create a new world order. They are rich in prewar technology, weapons, and the city itself is a threatening fortress. Almost every significant town or city in the area is under their control. . They're sending there a commissar and legions of loyal police, brainwashed for their cause. It is just a matter of time when they reach Forsayth. See more >>

THE WASTES by Ox-Skull

The aim of this mod is to create a playing field where there is allot of stuff to do, and no time limit on when you do story related missions and endless playtime like in fallout 2.The emphasis is freedom.There will be 4 factions to choose from: BOS, ENCLAVE, RAIDERS and RANGERS. Each faction has an item that will have bonuses that the player will receive upon joining, the item will receive an upgrade once you have proven yourself to the related faction.The faction wars is the main story of the game, with one ultimately ruling. TacoLlamaSauce is the main developer of the story line. I will be focusing on the content of The wastes, keeping as close to Fallout canon as I can.There will also be Merchants, Mercs, Slavers, Mobsters and bounty hunter groups around the wastes to work for.Many other features are planned. See more >>

Fallout Restoration Mod by TeamX

A direct successor of the Fallout Update Mod. It introduces most of the features seen in the Fallout Update Mod and plenty of the new ones. Mod is developed from scratch so it's expected to be more complex, solid and stable than the predecessor. Questionable and incomplete features are being removed. Project is based on the most recent version of the unofficial Fallout Patch v1.3.x.

Since currently only Wasteland Ghost is involved development, release model of the mod had been changed into modular structure. Non-cumulative updates are being released when ready. There are two parts available at this day:
  1. Game Restoration Mod Part 1: "Invasive procedures". An invasion of mutants army in all major towns has been restored. As long as Master exists, he and his army will slowly invade Wasteland. An invasion begins with the destruction of the LA: Boneyard. Then it continues to the Necropolis, Hub, Brotherhood of Steel, Junktown, Shady Sands and finally Vault 13. Note, that by interacting with the game world you can hasten an invasion in certain (or even all) locations. After a town's been invaded, all it's natives are killed and an invading army of mutants appears on the streets.
  2. Game Restoration Mod Part 2: "The Unknown Wasteland". This part deals mostly with caravans and random encounters. A caravan is actually shown, when it arrives in the town. Customers are now roaming around a caravan when it's in the town. A caravan leader now offers you a mini-quest: assist to unload a caravan. Few special encounters are fixed or re-enabled. Alcohol addiction (beer and booze) restored.

Fallout Revisited by Sorrow

This mod changes weapon damages and armor stats to more realistic. Damage Values were calculated with help of 3G3 Guns! Guns! Guns! weapon design system. Earlier versions of the mod were released in Poland and were liked by players. Game world changes: I fictionalized RL weapons and ammo (.44, Desert Eagle, .223) to fit the post WWII divergence and changed AK-112 to be more fitting to retro-futuristic USA. FDM:
  • No AC bonus from armor.
  • Modified HP of civilians and some of opponents - some people had as little HP as 12 (a leftover from GURPS or what?).
  • More random ranged weapons damage - FDM had unrealistically lethal firearms due to less random damage.
  • No HP bonuses for higher level NPCs.
  • Shotguns now fire salvoes of pellets which cause small damage to armored targets, but huge damage to unarmored ones.

Fallout 2 Mods and Conversions

Shattered Destiny by Lexx2k

The modification "Shattered Destiny" is the first of three chapters, that will bring back the old Fallout feelings. In this mod, the player isn't the vault dweller or a chosen one, the player is just a guy like you and me in a post apocalyptic world that has been tortured over the years... At first it was planed to create a totally new and big modification, with lots of new npcs, locations, quests, and so on, but because of missing time and interested people, I changed the hole concept to a chapter based game.

  • a new story
  • meet and talk to new NPCs
  • a new main quest and some side quests
  • you are not the chosen one (yes, its a feature! : )
  • more then 100 new scripts
  • approx 80 new dialog files
  • more then 3.500 new lines of text
  • new videos
  • new premade characters

Mutants Rising by dude101

"When mutants kill and destroy all that matters in your life---What can you do? As the last hope of a dead town, will you seek justice for the dead and help for the survivors? Or will you lose your way in this big nasty world that's waiting for you? Can anyone, for that matter, good or evil, survive for long in a world where most problems are solved at the end of a knife or with a burst of gunfire?"

Elko is a peaceful community in western Nevada, founded by the Chosen One about two decades ago. You have lived in Elko all your life. To your townsfolk, you are known as Cassidy's kid or the Orphan, although none of these denominations are exactly accurate: Cassidy isn't your biological father, and your parents may not be necessarily dead. After a vicious attack by a group of savage mutants, you flee with the survivors of the town to a small bunker. A few straggling attackers follow you, which you bravely fight off. Once the battle is over though, Cassidy suffers a heart attack and is in critical condition soon afterwards.

The game progresses from there with three main objectives: find a cure for Cassidy, discover why the mutants attacked Elko and some of the surrounding towns, and discover who your real parents were. As with Fallout 2, the mod can be completed in many different ways. Combat can be both embraced and avoided depending on how you want to play the mod. Developing skills that are seldom used may yield rewards later in the game. See more >>

13 V by TheUnbeholden

This mod is total conversion, alternate vision of Fallout1. It may look bit like low-budget parody but this style is result of my brainstorms about efficient way to make such big mod. At first point am decided to explore more mapper possibilities instead of create any new graphics. Secondary, found that battles suck compare to later Fallout Tactic and decided focus almost entirely on its best part; adventure. This lead me to two major problems later: how make big amount of scripts and dialogs.. above hundred of them! Writing scripts is relative fast, but not their testing that's why decided to use the same copy of script for most of NPC with small different details in quests. Last obstacle was dialogs, huge amount of text could easy bore to death even toughest book reader. That's why everywhere I put jokes, and plot is pretty crazy, often lead to unpredictable situations. Also am focus on playability, and my concept is even better from classic game. There is no one destiny of player, every choices put him in different places where adventure end. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Vintage Firearms by lisac2k

Wounded Ronin's Vintage Firearms Mod with Lisac2k's vintage firearms graphics is a weapon/ammo mod for Fallout 2 based on the old (vintage) weapons. This is my first attempt at making a mod for any game. As such, it is very simple and modest in scope, and I would appreciate feedback in case of errors on my part. I have replaced most of the Small Guns and Big Guns from Fallout 2 with real-world vintage firearms such as 1911s and RPKs. I am a big fan of the rugged power of vintage weapons and part of my purpose in creating this mod was to celebrate the idea that "they don't make them how they used to." I have also tried to make combat a little more realistic in spite of of the hit point-driven style of Fallout and I've basically done this by making the following changes.. See more >>

Survivor by INtense!

It's weapons/npc/items/critters/maps/scripts/dialogues/fixes/car mod. All in one.
The main idea is: you can go through the whole game using only one class of weapons. If you want to use energy weapons only, now you can. If you want to go through the game with a melee character, just go ahead! The weapons and their parameters are changed, and you'll find more powerful weapons of every class as you go further and further through the game. The game is NOT so well balanced (it was hard to make it perfect), so you might find big guns very powerful, but don't forget they need many action points to be used. Melee weapons are not so strong, but they require less action points etc... There are some moments during the game, where scripts give you weapon/equipment/items etc. depending on your skills. Some shopkeepers will sell you nice equipment if you pass weapon class skill check (e.g. if you have 125% or more of energy weapons skill, a shopkeeper will sell you a big-bad-mo-fo energy weapon). The conclusion: choose your favourite weapon class and boost it through the game. That's the main idea of this mod. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Vault Rats by lisac2k

This mod is the result of the drastic changes made to the Fallout game setting and mechanics introduced during the development of the third sequel - Fallout 3. First person shooter with some role playing elements was the worst fear (which mostly became true on October 28th, 2008 when Fallout 3 was released) of the earlier established Fallout community, which largely demanded that the upcoming sequel keeps the spirit of its predecessors, Fallout 1 and 2, as much as it is possible. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Wasteland Merc by stenchy

Features:13 custom locations, custom weapons, custom missions and dialogs and more. This is not an add-on, it is a campaign on its own. In this mod you are not the chosen or vault dweller but a simple mercenary warrior that goes around in wasteland looking for missions/jobs. All missions/jobs are redo-able and are intended to be done several times. If you come to a town and nobody seems to be willing to talk to you that means your not high enough level to get that mission. Than usually they will tell you to get bent or come back when your better in various ways. See more >>

Fallout 2 Restoration Project by stenchy

Despite how much there is to do in Fallout 2, parts of the game always felt incomplete or rushed. The purpose of this mod is to fill these gaps and make Fallout 2 into the game it was meant to be. This project attempts to stay true to what made Fallout 2 great and thus the new content you will find is not something I thought up or felt would be cool to include, but rather a reality of what the original Black Isle developers wanted. I read through developer comments, studied original design documents, and looked through nearly every file included in the game in the process of creating this mod. I admit I had to make some judgment calls here and there, but 90% of what you will see is something originally planned to be included in the game but was cut for whatever reason. Not only does this mod include new content, but it also includes my unofficial Fallout 2 patch which corrects 800+ bugs left in the game after the last official patch. See more >>

The best Model and Texture mods for Fallout: New Vegas

Wasteland Flora Overhaul by vurt

A much more varied Wasteland. 101 different trees and plants are carefully placed throughout the wasteland. You'll encounter cacti, ancient bristlecone pines, dead trees, desert sunflowers, desert candle flowers, lupins, reeds, a variety of different junipers, pines and shrubs. Most of the default trees are replaced with higher detailed models and textures.

NMCs_Texture_Pack_For_New_Vegas by NeilMc_NMC and EVE - Essential Visual Enhancements by weijiesen and jonnyeah are on 10 best Fo:NV mods of all time list, see them here.

Official Pipboy Readius - New Vegas Edition by AlexScoprion and Brianide

This is the official port of the Pipboy Readius mod from Fallout 3. It replaces the regular ingame Pipboy with a handheld Readius-like device. It also removes the default Pipboy from the player's arm, as well as the accompanying glove.Controllers work. This is something we received a lot of complaints about in Fallout 3. Credit for this is mostly due to Vivanto, so you should all express your gratitude by appropriating him his deserved kudos (see Credits section at bottom for link). The Pip-Boy light is no longer remapped. There is now an Aid item "[Pip-Boy Readius Options]" which can be used to access the uninstallation menu, should the need arise.

Enhanced Blood Textures for NV v2_22c by dDefinder

Increases the resolution size from 256 to 1024 and created new textures for screen, world, wounds, static blood decals and gore. Esps are used to increase the size appearance of the blood. Adjustments for screenblood, added more giblets and new wound textures related to the weapon type. Ini will change max amount and lifetime for blood that is in the world space. More creatures can now cause wounds where before they didn't. No video available for this mod.
See more >>

Monster Mod by Dogtown1

Adds many new creatures to the game integrated through the spawn levelled lists. Now I dont mean red, blue, and orange versions of the default creatures, I mean theres 130 creatures that you have never seen before or they have a new model and texture making them unique, including their stats. What this means is you will always get something to spawn, just not 20 of them. I did this for a reason, its still a challenge with the spawn chance maxed instead of your computer trying to proccess a spawn count so high it blows up your computer. I also set the the respawn time to 2 days instead of 3.

Weapon Mod Kits by Antistar

Weapon Modification Kits - or 'Weapon Mod Kits' - allow you to use standard Workbenches to modify your favourite firearms with a range of handy attachments:
  • Auto-Fire Mechanism (AF): Adds full-auto firing capability to most guns that do not have it otherwise (also increases weapon spread by around 50% and reduces weapon to 65% of its default accuracy in VATS).
  • Extended Magazine/Clip (EC): Doubles magazine/clip capacity.
  • Laser Sight (LS): Increases accuracy (reduces weapon spread by around 33% and increases weapon accuracy in VATS by 25%).
  • Scope (SC): Can use scope to sight targets, increases range by 30%.
  • Silencer (SI): Makes weapon silent, reduces damage and projectile speed (by around 10% each).
In addition, the loving attention bestowed upon your weapon during modification results in durability improvements. Each successive mod applied to a weapon increases its durability by 25% (of its base durability). See more >>

NMCs_Texture_Pack_for_FO3 by NeilMc_NMC

It changes the vast majority of in-game graphics, does not cover the DLC. This was a years worth of work, all textures were made individually by 1 person alone, and took a great deal of effort. This graphics mod change: Roads, Landscape, Trees, Rocks, Vehicles- Cars/ Motorbikes/ Boats etc., Buildings- Litter & most paper scraps, Interiors- all aspects, walls ceilings floors etc., Medium to large sized objects (eg. toolboxes, Nuka cola vendors, chairs, cupboards etc). This encompasses the bulk of the in-game visuals, what I consider the vast majority of the graphics. See more >>

Fallout 3 Redesigned - Formerly Project Beauty HD by Dracomies and SpaceOden

This is my attempt to change NPCS in Fallout 3. I have redesigned their facial structure to give them a more natural appearance, as well as to preserve their character as well. It removes some of the awkward skin tones, and facial structures of the Vanilla versions. Rather than listing every NPC that was changed, you will need to take my word that nearly 500 NPCs have been redesigned in Fallout 3. Everything from children, Talon Mercs, women, men, Raiders, named NPCs, the random straggler walking on the side of the road, etc. I am an avid fan of Fallout 1 and Fallout 2 and this has helped me in making the characters fit the lore of Fallout 3. I also have had experience in the past with character design and with portrait drawing and this has helped me a tad with figuring out the right proportions for characters in Fallout 3. See more >>

Fallout 3 Re-Animated by Alendor

This is a re-animation project for Fallout 3 that I began in my spare time. While playing though the game I felt that the poses and animation just didn't suit my taste, and kind of took away from my experience. Not to say they are poorly done, however they just weren’t my style. So I began looking at how to get animations into Fallout 3, and this is my result. I’m a professional animator (although not in the biz long) and am using this project to help keep my skills up, as well as to enhance the game immersion which I feel could be increased with updated animations. Not necessarily requiring a quality update, as the Beth guys are great at their job, but just a different approach or style to the poses and animations such as rifle aiming, idles and so forth of the human characters. My goal is to reanimate a significant amount of the human animations that are all game play related. Of which there are around 300 of them, and I say game play related, because there is another 700+ animations in the idle folder. So I’m working on pretty much all the action based animations that will play on your player character. See more >>

Mothership Zeta Crew by Nylonathathep

So, you've finished playing Mothership Zeta and have conquered your own starship. You are the commander, but your crew consists on a know-it-all brat and an agoraphobic field medic. Not exactly the mightiest army ever, is it? Well, we are going to change that. Mothership Zeta Crew adds a new faction under your command. It will develop a whole history arc involving the recruitment and commandment of a force comparable with the enclave or the Brotherhood of Steel itself. Can't say much more without spoiling the story! Once the mod is active and you've finished the Zeta add on, a button will appear in the command bridge, on the console at the right of your command chair. Press it and let the story begin!

Top 10 Fallout: New Vegas Mods of All-time

Project Nevada by PN Team

Mod aiming to make Fallout: New Vegas a more interesting - eventually more challenging - but surely more fun experience for you.Created by the team responsible for the Fallout 3 Wanderers Edition (FWE), we're leaving the barren DC wasteland behind and move on west to new, exciting regions.Project Nevada is not an overhaul, instead it's organized as a set of themed modules.Each module can address different aspects of the game and target different audiences, but they are also designed to work in conjunction.Our vision is to allow players picking the modules they want and using them together with any mod they like, instead of forcing them to make the all-or-nothing choice. Short descriptions of all current modules:
  • Core module - the foundation of Project Nevada, and as such required by all other modules.
  • Cyberware - Even though humanity nuked itself back into the Stone Age, you don't have to fight with sticks and stones. Some of man's most advanced technological creations have been preserved - and the Cyberware module gives you the chance to obtain them!
  • Rebalance - This module aims to bring back the challenge and balance known from Fallout3 Wanderers Edition and includes many tweaks to the FNV gameplay and difficulty.
  • Equipment module - brings new weapons and armor to the Mojave Wasteland.

New Vegas Bounties I by Someguy2000

"New Vegas Bounties I" is the first installment in a planned series for Fallout: New Vegas. Upon initiating the quest, you'll be tasked with tracking down the most malevolent and vile assortment of outlaws in the Mojave Wasteland.
Your targets will include rogue rangers, fiends, raiders, drug smugglers, cannibals, and pistoleros, to name a few. Your opponents are all designed to be boss-caliber, akin to the fiends in "Three-Card Bounty", and become gradually more difficult as you progress. At its core, New Vegas Bounties is an action mod; extreme violence and profanity are ubiquitous. In lieu of mind-boggling puzzles or "go collect x or y resource"-type quests, you will be confronted with dangerous opponents who are designed to frustrate and kill you. You will be harried, ambushed, outnumbered, and outgunned. This is the path of a bounty hunter - take it or leave it. See more >>

Nevada Skies - Weather Effects by Yossarian

This mod adds more versatile weather effects to the Mojave. Weather effects include Sandstorms, Rain, Rainstorms, RADstorms (make sure you got Rad-X), Thunderstorms (with/without rain) and snow at appropriate areas. The Mod adds more than 320 new cloud- and weather variants to the game. Sunrises and sunsets have been tweaked for more diversity, and nights are darker and do look more like real nights. Additional changes to the environmental light appearance to support the weather appearance and the mood they create. Bloom effect reworked to reduce NPC and player figure glow appearance. Also this weather mod provides you with a large amount of special weather themes, that create a unique and new feeling to the game and can be activated as standalone or as part of the main climate. Some of those moods have special effects such as snow, icestorms, toxicstorms and firestorms. See more >>

Weapon Mods Expanded - WMX by Antistar

My Weapon Mod Kits (WMK) mod for Fallout 3 was the inspiration for Obsidian's implementation of the weapon modding system in Fallout New Vegas; something which I am quite proud of and flattered by. I like Obsidian's take on it; enough that I wanted to add to it... 'expand' upon it, you might say. Weapon Mods Expanded (WMX) for Fallout New Vegas expands upon the base game's weapon modding system in the following ways:
  • ALL weapons get the maximum of three applicable weapon mods; this includes unique weapons.
  • Unique weapons can be modified with the same weapon mods as their common counterparts.
  • Some existing weapon mods (from the base game) are newly applied to weapons besides their defaults...
  • But many more are weapon mods newly added by WMX.
  • Some weapon mods can be applied to multiple different weapons.
  • New crafting possibilities for the more low-tech weapon mods (mainly melee weapon mods).
  • Some unique weapons without a common counterpart (for example That Gun and This Machine) receive one.
  • New and altered art assets to visually depict most of the new weapon mods.
  • Chance to find weapon mods in loot.
  • More weapon mods available from merchants (to compensate for more types being available).
  • WMX also contains numerous fixes for visual bugs in weapon meshes and textures.

NMCs Texture Pack For New Vegas by NeilMc_NMC

This mod changes the vast majority of in-game graphics. Does not retexture the DLC. But the DLC will still work if you use this mod, but will use default game textures where applicable. This was a years worth of work, all textures were made individually by 1 person alone, and took a great deal of effort. This mod changes: RoadsLandscape, Trees (ie trunks/branches), Vehicles, Buildings, Interiors, Medium to large sized objects (eg. toolboxes, Nuka cola vendors, chairs, cupboards etc). See more >>

The Mod Configuration Menu by Pelinor

The Mod Configuration Menu (MCM) is a resource for other mods to use which adds a "Mod Configuration" button to the Pause menu.When you click on it, a window appears with a list of all of the mods using MCM. Each of these listed mods are then configured from within the same menu. As can be seen in the screenshots, a very user-friendly menu allows you to quickly and confidently configure your mods. You won't have to use any items or press any special keys to use it. For modders wanting to use MCM menus for their mods, a detailed guide is given explaining how. Mods using MCM only require MCM to be installed and activated to use the menu; there is no master dependency to the system, so your mod will still work if the user doesn't have MCM installed.

A World Of Pain by Dj Mystro

Adds 114 intense locations to the wasteland filled with enemies and loot. They vary from small Gas Stations to huge maze-like sewers and derelict factories. Adds several days of new gameplay possibilities. A massive new linked Underground complex awaits filled with quests, NPCs with dialogue, vendors and some of the toughest enemies you will encounter anywhere in the game. Also adds many modified weapons, armors and items to the game with enhanced stats to help and hinder you throughout. Everything has been done using vanilla content at this stage so the filsesize should still be tiny. That said everything is complete and navmeshed and there should be no gaps or unfinished interiors. The final version will not have a name change (I changed my mind about that) so it’s gonna be called a Preview forever. Note about Loot: This mod adds quite a lot of loot (though much less than older versions). If you don't like finding lots of useful stuff in most AWOP locations then get the Low Loot patches from the patches site. Also if you are concerned that having about 300 extra NPCs in the wasteland will slow your computer down too much grab the LowNPCs Patch (also on the AWOP Patches Site) which removes all but about 15 AWOP NPCs (from exteriors only and removes no-one important or with dialogue).
