That's what I figured. Unfortunately, the readme documentation is pretty sparse when it comes to any advice or recommendation regarding conflicts or load order. I'll keep dicking around with it.

I just took a closer look at your picture and I think I might know the problem: You're supposed to pick either the .223 version (uses 5.56 ammo and repairs with service rifles) or the .44 magnum version (uses .44 magnum ammo and repairs with, well, .44 magnums). Since they both affect the same gun and you have both checked off the game is probably throwing a hissy fit and not changing it at all.

Just checked it out and it doesn't make a difference. With either one active, it's still called "That Gun", does 17 DAM and 80 DPS. This has to be a load order problem.

Somebody is going to scold me for this and tell me this causes conflicts or is the wrong way to do it because you should be using some iteration of Wrye Bash instead:

1. Open up FNVEdit.
2. Check whatever plugins you want to merge (they will all be checked by default.)
3. Check OK and allow them all to load.
4. When it's finished, right click somewhere on the left screen, where all of the plugins are listed. Select "Create Merged Patch" (the option is about halfway down the list) and see if FNVEdit decides to create merge the mods you selected.
5. Make sure the merged patch loads AFTER every mod it concerns.

Ah yes, now I remember it and feel silly for asking. And it should be just fine - it's just several separate single weapon mods I'd simply like to merge together. None of them even have scripts so I should be fine.

I just posted a quick tutorial on converting FO3 files to FO:NV in the FAQ section, since I've been finding it very useful for throwing some of the nicer armors into NV. Since it's not a painfully obvious technique, I figured other people could benefit from looking it over if they have no idea how to strip FO3 master data from their mods.

If you open the GECK, load up the core master .esm, the pre-order .esm and the mod, you should be able to just look at the Caravan Shotgun, open the pre-order Caravan Shotgun, and set the .nifs/models to be the same as the mod's settings. Then save it to your own .esp, close GECK, run the launcher, add your .esp to the data, and run the game.
Actually the Caravan Shotgun retex wasn't an .esp, it was just the .dds files in a folder. So I found out what the Sturdy needed and made folders and renamed everything. Put the files in Data\Textures\NVDLCPre3\Weapons\2handrifle and renamed the files to 1stpersonpreordshotgun.dds and 3rdpersonpreordshotgun.dds (along with those "_n") files and it worked.

Also added the Challenge/Perk Fixes mod so it would work with Shotgun Surgeon and such.

So I modded the YCS/186 to have a 5 round clip, and only use one ammunition per shot. For some reason this made my game freeze for a brief second after every shot I take with the YCS, the gently caress? Oh, I also made it disintegrate stuff, would this matter?

Doesn't seem to be a specific problem, though it only happens with the gun, I'm getting these little jitters and stutters just walking around as well. I have the stutter remover, as well as the LAA. I have a pretty powerful setup so I don't think I should be having problems, any good performance tweaks that don't affect the look of the game?

You're probably referring to this mod, which allows you to do this in FO3. The author is currently working on a port for NV, but it hasn't been released yet.

There is also this mod: Companion Commander which lets you recruit any NPC you want. Though I have not used it personally so I can't really vouch for it.

And is there any way to tell forsure if that LAA 3gb limit remover is actually working? It ran through the patch or whatever fine, but I wanna be able to make sure.
Download the "Editbin Optional Package" from the mod page of the LAA enabler. And then use the dumpbin command on the modified executable, irrc it is something like:

dumpbin /headers FalloutNV.exe

You should see a large amount of lines being printed on the console, scroll up to the very top, you should see

My initial test version will have a lovely cheat case with everything in it, all renamed from what they were before - this pack contains stuff from three different backpack mods, Blackwolf, Military Backpacks New Vegas, and KDS' Wearable backpacks - but the only one required to get this working will be Military Backpacks, New Vegas.

All righty then! Here's version 2 of my backpack integration mod!


First off,
33 megs? really?

yeah. sorry? I'm going to optimize this down, getting rid of everything I don't need to include, but I'm still fighting it, and have yet to optimize or tweak anything for size. There is a crapton of duplicated stuff in here that the other mod provides, and I have yet to get my poo poo together. you should have been here when I uploaded it. Twice. (I lost the link to it the first time.)

What do I need to get this working then?

This mod: http://www.newvegasnexus.com/downlo...le.php?id=36423

Install it, and only load the .esm file. That other stuff will be included in my version, and will only cause heartache right now.

Then dump that fuckton load of files in my 7z file into your nv data folder, go hang out in an interior cell for about 3 game days, and go wander around and see what's up!

WHERE CAN I BUY THIS poo poo IN-GAME?
well, there is a carefully placed trunk labled "Armor Trunk" in front of the goodsprings store that has all of the packs for you to take and use, but if you want to buy them, Chet has a few, the Quartermaster in Forlorn Hope has the NCR versions, and the gun-runner's Vendertron has all the other variants. If you want a legion pack, go shoot some legion dudes wearing one. They DESERVE it.

ahem.

You may also spot some wandering wasteland explorers with packs, and the wandering merchants will have them, as do Crimson Caravaneers you may find. But if you want to buy one from them, you are poo poo OUTTA LUCK! AKA: I don't know where the wandering merchants keep their sales loot, or I would add packs to them. help?

Wait, why don't ALL the people you said should have packs I dunno, have packs?
Because I did build in a chance that they won't have a pack. Also, not all the troopers are built from the same templates I modified. Oh, if you have a mod that modifies templates for characters, this might gently caress it up. Sorry?

ANYHOO, have at it! give me feedback here, or email me directly @ Vitriolic@gmail.com. (put 'your backpack mod sucks, fag!' in the email title please.)

If you want to do a skin for a pack variant, feel free! I can include them later on.

Also, right now there are a few spelling errors, I am planning on changing the names around to things like "Kid's backpack" "Daypack" "Hiking pack" etc, so that will be happening, too.

I'm a huge pedantic nerdburger extreme for dragging on the conversation even as long as I did but I just need to clarify by mentioning what I meant was that the prop used for Deckard's revolver itself was made from bits from a .223 rifle (and a revolver).

How the hell do you use the GECK to find a quest ID?

I've been trying to work it out for about an hour and I'm about ready to stab someone.
1. Open the GECK and go to File -> Data...
2. Double-click FalloutNV.esm to select it and also whichever mod you're working on, then click "Set Active File" with the mod's .esp selected so it writes to that file.
3. Go here:

4. Note that that numeric ID field likes to collapse itself, at least on my monitor.
5. Delete as desired, save changes

OR, since you just want to cut out that part of the mod,
1. Open FNVEdit, make sure that mod is in the list of stuff to load.
2. Go straight to that mod in the list on the left, find the quest, right-click and delete
3. Save!
