XRE beta1_35 showcase - Flyable Vertibird by Ermeso

At heart XRE is a scripted object physics & manipulation engine, allowing the creation of moving structures and vehicles in Fallout. The current beta showcase contains one implementation, a flyable vertibird. The second part of the showcase, a both manually and a.i. controllable missile, will be added when I'm done with solving a few die-hard bugs and finish the a.i. control mode script. Right now, all my work goes into the vertibird. The goal is to release several stand-alone vehicle types as modding references. Vertibird Features:
  • Reskinned exterior
  • Lighted windows & flashing navlights
  • HUD with analog throttle, velocity && altitude gauges
  • Relative & sealevel altitude measurement
  • Currently two weapons: 70mm dual tankshell cannon, 20mm gatling cannon

Drivable RoadWarrior Car by hardkopy

This is a drivable car which runs on whiskey. You will need a few bits to get it running but I left all you need at the bandit house in Springvale. My part: Adjusting the model in 3dmax to fit the nosering slot as armor (same as J3X drivable motorcycle only more awkward due to the size of the vehicle. Editing the scripts specifically for this vehicle. Adding sounds and menu items. FOSE is also required. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Pilotable Vertibird by J3X

Proof of concept. This mod merges my Drivable Motorcycle speed control script with SaidenStorms excellent Akatosh mount levitation scripts. This mod will probably not be updated, it's released 'as it is' and serves as a base for arlix123's Flyable Pilotable Vertibird BETA mod, if you want additional features like the ability to go inside the Vertibird, check it out! FLY! - Explore the wasteland from above! FIGHT! - Annihilate your foes with superior firepower; The Vertibird comes armed with a minigun and a rocket launcher.

DCInteriors Project by chuckSteel

Have you ever thought about scabbing the DC wastes, even though, the super mutants may horrifically and violently rip your heart out? Have you said to yourself "D*** the torpedoes, I am going Downtown anyway", only to find once you arrive that 99% of the shops and houses are all boarded up? Have you ever seen a building on the horizon, thinking you'll head there, just to find nothing of interest, nothing worth investigating? If so, this mod is for you! Just opened in the beautiful Downtown D.C. Waste, Georgetown District. A Cuppa Joe, Floyd's Barbershop, Robinson's Robots, Mama Dolce's Outlet Store, The US Army recruitment Center, the Nuka Cola Soda Shop and two abandoned townhomes. See more >>

Underground Hideout by danthegeek

This Mod adds a Player Vault on the South East end of the Wasteland near Rivet City. The vault includes all the ammonites including a stocked Armory, Display areas, Item Sorters, special Weapons, and is Companion Friendly. The entrance is located West of the “Rivet City” Entrance in the Parking lot with the crashed planes and wrecked cars. See more >> 

RR Companions Vault by NosRhyfelwr

The RR Companions Vault is a combination house mod AND fully functional companion system. The house portion consists of Vault 1. The entrance to Vault 1 is located just south of Springvale, towards Megaton. There is a map marker that begins the game fast-travel enabled. Once inside the entrance, you'll find yourself in the service tunnels that lead to the vault proper. These tunnels contain access points leading to two hatches in the wastes, and can be used for quick access to places you would normally have to walk overland - and through very dangerous places - to get to, but are especially useful for people who don't use fast travel.

Access points lead to: Underneath the Anacostia Crossing side of the Rivet City access bridge; Outside the western wall of Tenpenny Tower. Wasteland-side of the access points have map markers, as well, though they have to be discovered normally. Access to the Vault itself may be gained (starting from the Springvale entrance) by going straight down the hall, and hanging a left in the main tunnel. The large door at the end leads into Vault 1. It's hard to miss. The others are simple enough to find; just explore. The access tunnel cell is decent sized, but easy to navigate, and decently well lit. There is also a secondary Vault 1 access door, towards the Rivet City exit. It's a small utility door that leads to a tunnel underneath the Vault 1 Overseer's office. See more >>

The Most Popular Fallout 3 Model and Texture Mods

NMCs_Texture_Pack_for_FO3 by NeilMc_NMC

What This Mod Does: It changes the vast majority of in-game graphics. The DLC is not re-textured with this mod, it covers Fallout 3. It still works if you have the DLC installed but the textures in the DLC will be the ones that shipped with the original game (unless textures in the DLC are re-used from the Fallout game).

This was a years worth of work, all textures were made individually by 1 person alone, and took a great deal of effort. What graphics does this 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. What graphics does this mod NOT change?
  • Sky, Water, Small clutter objects (eg bottles, cans, books etc). NPC's (in game characters), Bodies/ faces, Clothing etc. Weapons, Effects. Mutants and other wasteland creatures. UI elements, Loading Screens, PipBoy.

Enhanced Night Sky by CptJoker

This mod is a high-resolution replacement for the default night sky. Taken from real-life star field photography, it's been carefully crafted to enhance your night-time viewing experience. (Note: the stars do not correspond to their accurate celestial positions - such is beyond my means to produce). Enjoy your nights of stargazing! No video available for this mod.
See more >>

Terrain pack by NeilMc_NMC

Replaces landscape/ terrain textures and bump maps for FALLOUT 3.
The default game textures and bump maps and have a typical resolution of 512x512 pixels. These textures have all been replaced with real-world photograph-based equivalent textures, and you can choose 3 different resolutions to suit your PC.
  • 2048x2048 pixels (400% larger, Most detailed)
  • 1024x1024 pixels (200% larger, Detailed) 
  • 512x512 pixels (same resolution as original textures)

The higher resolution packs may cause increased VRAM usage and therefore page-file swapping/ hard drive 'texture thrashing' and (due to increased memory usage) may cause some in-game stuttering/ lag or slow-downs. This will depend on your PC, CPU, RAM and graphics card. (None of this will harm your PC, just make it sweat a bit!) See more >>

Enhanced Blood Textures v2_22b by dDefinder

Increases the resolution size from 256 to 1024 and created new textures for screen, world, wounds and static blood decals. Esps are used to increase the size appearance of the blood, adjustments for screenblood, add more giblets and new wounds related to the weapon type. ini will change max amount and lifetime for blood that is in the world space. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Hi-Res Weapons v3 by the a - burns

For various rifles & pistols / merely enhancing standard textures. No new textures this time, only some improvements over the original ones and replacement of the 3rd person texture (small) by the larger 1st person texture. Doubled resolution for 3rd person textures (may impact performance). Tweaked textures:
  • Combat Shotgun, Hunting Rifle, Laser Rifle, Lincoln Rifle, 10mm Pistol, 10mm SMG, Laserpistol, .44 Magnum, Bottlecap Mine, Frag Mine, Frag Grenade, Gatling Laser, Minigun, RockIt Launcher, Flamethrower, Fatman, Missilelauncher, Railwayrifle, Sniperrifle, Plasmarifle, Chinese Officersword, Shishkebab, Supersledge, Baseballbat, Mesmetron and Sawedoff Shotgun.

The Most Popular Building Mods for Fallout: New Vegas

New Vegas Restoration - NVR by The NVR Team

The whole point of this on - going mod is to create a Strip that reminds us that there is still some good in the wasteland. By removing the trash, repairing the buildings, and adding more life to the Strip, our goal can be achieved. The NVR Team is working very hard to create the Strip we all want! This mod cleans up the Strip by removing trash, repairing roads, buildings, and making the Strip a better place to be.

Every area on the Strip has had attention, even the places that you don't see when you're walking by. In fact, if you enter the Strip, you will automatically see a difference right beneath your feet. The roads are no longer cracked and destroyed. With Version 10, this mod is so much more than just a "Cleanup" because so many new things are added as well. See more >>

Underground Hideout New Vegas V4-4 by Danthegeek

This Mod adds a Player Vault on the the Wasteland near Spring Mt. Ranch State Park. The vault includes all the amenities including a Armory, ammo Sorters, Weapons wall, water purifier, book shelf, grow area, and is Companion Friendly. The entrance is located West of Spring Mt. Ranch State Park next to a boulder and pond. Check your map for the exact location. See more >>

Underwater Home by T4K

This mod adds an underwater home near Calville Bay and the Legion camp. It contains a special type of atmosphere and several useful features. Apart from being underwater, I tried to make it with a realistic feel to it.

The overall lighting is very different than most of New Vegas interiors and is one of the major feature, do note that every light now has a source and his radius has been greatly reduced compared to the default game, which adds a creepier and more realism to your Fallout experience.

  • Unique quest to gain Entrance.
  • Animated Water Purifier (Food and Water)
  • Reactor System to power the home. Can be deactivated, see FAQ*
  • Sorting System with a unique load out system.
  • Ammo, food, beverage, chems and nuka cola stocking.
  • Radio System (Radio New Vegas & Mojave Music Radio) Compatibility patches available*
  • Bottle Refiller (Nuka Cola, Scotch, Sunset Sarsaparilla, Whiskey).
  • Companions Rooms for all followers. Compatibility Patches available*
  • Junk Incinerator & Mojave Express dropbox in the entrance area.
  • Lab with animal capturing and plants harvesting (seeds needed first).
  • Teleport with portable teleport device and support for custom locations.
  • Entrance Moving tool (stored in the armory on a stand, near workbench).
  • Currency Exchanger with safes for your money.
  • Infirmary (Vit-o-matic, cure addiction and poisons, heal yourself and restore crippled limbs).
  • Hideout Mainframe (Master sorter, load out management and a teleporter spare, in case you lose it).
  • Several rewards for completing some of the Default in-game quests.

These features are only a small part of what Underwater Home is, there's more than that. See more >>

Goodsprings Home by Daguls

A small home, with choice location, lore friendly design, plenty of storage, a place to sleep, and a small hint of the mystery associated with its owner. A necessity for myself, and hopefully you as well :)

The mod can be found on my website,, under projects, which houses all of my mods. You can download from there or use New Vegas Nexus, either way, please support me as you can with recommendations, comments, or questions, or even donate to the cause if you feel it! Thanks for your support. More mods to come soon. No video available for this mod. See more >>

Most Popular Fallout: New Vegas Armor Mods

Reinforced Chinese Stealth Suit - NV by gaijune

"RCSS" adds a reinforced version of the Chinese Stealth Suit to the Mojave Wasteland. This mod implements a powered-up version of the Latexy Chinese Stealth Suit that resembles the likes of a popular futuristic Ninja. Peruse the images tab for a visual reference. East of the Abandoned Brotherhood of Steel Bunker, on the far east side of the map, and south of the Hoover Dam, you'll find a "Mysterious Nook" near a cache of Lakelurk eggs. Upon entering the Nook, you'll trigger a small quest that will lead you to a terminal. Check various logs in the terminal to find clues related to the location of several RCSS items.

For a detailed description/spoiler of where to find the items, check below. Alternatively, use the following codes with the console (XX represents the Mod Index number, found next to the File category in FOMM). See more >>

Spice of Life - Variety Armor and Clothing Robert Breeze Type3 by Nivea

I was always put off by the fact that 90% of the population seemed to wear the exact same armor/clothing with the exact same hat as everyone else, the end of the world may have happened but that doesn't mean everyone found and wears the exact same piece of clothing.

This mod aims to try and lessen this issue by adding more clothing/armor variety into the wasteland through the use of level lists. This mod includes:
  • Backpacks: 11
  • Gloves: 21
  • Headgear: 64
  • Armors/Clothing: 32
  • Poncho: 9

Advanced Recon Stealth Armor by Gopher

This mod adds several sets of stealth armor. Some of these are disguised so as not to be quite so obvious from a distance. Now you can choose your look and still be a ghost. Almost all the models are styled in the manner of existing FalloutNV and Fallout3 models, especially BrotherHood of Steel look and feel, with a touch of the Chinese armor style creeping in.
  • Advanced Recon Armor : This is hi-tec adaptation of the Brotherhood of Steel recon armor. It provides far greater protection whilst also incorporating stealth technology to give a stealth field when sneaking, with no weapon drawn and stationary. This means you rely on your skill when moving or in combat, but you get the chance to become literally invisible when you stand still, adding a new dimension to the stealth experience. **HINT** Go into sneak before fast travelling, and you will arrive at your destination with stealth field intact. Same for activating doors/gates. Stop for a second before activating gate and when you enter the new zone, you will be invisible.
  • Advanced Recon Armor (Battle Worn): A battle worn version of the above (see images).
  • Recon Ranger armor: A version of the NCR Ranger combat armor with its high DT plus all the functionality of the recon stealth armor.
  • Recon Ranger Armor (Black) :A black version of the above (see images).
  • Advanced Regulator Recon Duster : As above but disguised to blend in the wasteland better. Sometimes it is not a good idea to wander about the wasteland always looking like a hi-tec commando. This armor is disguised to look similar to the regulator duster. Up close it will not fool anyone, but at a distance it might.
  • Advanced Recon Death Walker Duster : As above but in black leather.
  • Advanced Recon Trenchcoat : As above but disguised to look like a military trenchcoat. A little smarter than the regulator recon duster. 
  • Advanced Recon Black Ops Coat : As above but dark grey/black.

Caesars New Regime - Legion Overhaul by dragbody, weijiesen, scottmack

When I played New Vegas for the first time, I was left with the distinct impression that the Legion should have been much more fierce. I was able to kill Vulpes and his buddies in Nipton the first time I saw them; I was able to march into the Fort and kill everyone; I was able to kill the Legate with a single head shot. All of these things made them seem like quite weak enemies, and that's before you look at their gear!

Let's face it--the Legion just doesn't look tough running around in skirts, football pads, and ugly helmets (with or without the feathers). However, the Legion almost defeated the NCR at the first battle for Hoover Dam, and they've got everyone on the west side of the Colorado scared they'll finish the job the second time. But how? As they are, they're target practice for NCR rangers and snipers. The Legion needed a new look. That's why I created this file.

What this mod does: It replaces all vanilla Legion armors, creates a few new classes, edits some weapon lists, adds a voiced companion--Achilles--in the Legion safe house, alters the faces of some prominent Legion NPCs, turns some Legion NPCs into mini-bosses (Otho, Alexus, Dead Sea), and adds some extra unique gear. The armors of Aurelius and Silus are now unique, for example. What this mod does not do: It doesn't add many Legion NPCs and it doesn't account for other mods such as AWOP that introduce new Legion classes. See more >>

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 >>
