PN still works fine, more or less, but some people find it can lead to poor performance and theres other mods that can replicate its effects with less of an alleged performance hit.

I've looked into a few replacements but I can only find a few (standalone Cybernetics, but there's stuff I have that requires PN-Cybernetics so I don't think I can replace them), and nothing that changes what I like the most, the combat adjustments (I set DT reduction to 99% max)

Making “deals” under the barrel of a gun that erase entire societies and cultures just because somebody else might do the same thing doesn’t make it better

No, the NCR wouldve never have made such an offer. They either wouldve been absorbed with no real bonuses unlike house, or they wouldve been kicked off their land where they would end up like the khans at best or dead. Or crushed or abosrbed into the Legion. Theres no loving might about it, its the cold reality of the region.

2house2fly posted:

On the other hand, the Khans specifically didn't take this deal

the khans are not well known for their good decision making skills. they never have been. their only notable quality is how they havent been wiped out yet.

Okay. But why is House specifically evil for doing it. When the NCR and the Legion do basically the same imperialism thing?

Edit: And evil AI overlord YesMan will undoubtedly be pulling the same poo poo.

to be fair to the NCR, the Khans (and Jackals and Vipers) came from the same Vault the NCR did so eliminating them isn't really "imperialism" as much as it's Sherman's March to the Sea.

Sherman specifically refrained from killing women and children. The NCR chose a different path.

The NCR is operating two military bases, several outposts, and is the only reason Caesar hasn't murdered or enslaved everyone in the area. This is alongside building rail line (until the Powder Gangers staged a jail break), operating a concrete quarry, establishing sharecropper fields, managing caravan traffic in and out of the region, and shipping relief supplies to Freeside. The NCR is a dumb, bloated bureaucracy, but they are doing plenty of things in the region.

Edit: and the real money flow is out of the NCR and into House's coffers. Without NCR citizens those casinos don't have any customers.

I like your style hombre, but this is no laughing matter. Assault on a police officer. Theft of police property. Illegal possession of a firearm. FIVE counts of attempted murder. That comes to... 29 dollars and 40 cents. Cash, cheque, or credit card?

So hey, about modding, I tried using FNVLODGen and it did not work right at all.



The way it seems is as if the newly generated stuff is displayed, but all the standard distant objects are made invisible.

A closer picture:


Apparently I don't have any other screenshots from before I disabled/deleted all that stuff to get back to the entirely functional vanilla LODs.

Any ideas? Any suggestions for what settings to use when re-running generation to see if I can make it work, or at least get closer to diagnosing the problem?

I'd suggest using XLodGen instead of FNVLodGen. The Viva New Vegas modding guide should also have a walkthrough on the right way to generate LODs. I'm phone posting so I can't exactly go into detail.

true.i guess it was less imperialism and more like the genocide that the Israelites carried out against the Canaanites.
