My Fallout New Vegas Mods

Modding

Modding for me entails primarily using the SDK provided for Fallout New Vegas. I use Blender for editing and producing custom meshes. In most cases, my custom meshes are actually combinations of existing meshes from the games, tweaked, edited, distorted and otherwise mashed together to produce something alltogether different from the component pieces.

for texturing, I use photoshop 6.0 with a dds converter program to convert the files into usable formats, likewise I tend to work from existing texture sets, recolouring, adding text and simple iconography to existing textures. I know how to do things from scratch, but my art skills aren't really good enough to make it look good. especially not alongside the professional level work in the games.

I also use a host of lesser programs, such as Nifskope, for editing the functionality of the mesh files and FO3Archive, for extracting files from the BSA archives they're kept in.

 

These are the Mods I have uploaded to www.newvegasnexus.com. I have produced a significantly larger number of mods which I haven't felt merited sharing.

I also maintain a similar page of mods on the sister site www.fallout3nexus.com. though those are older and largely inferior.

custom mesh for the gun and the projectile.

Merc Survivor's Armor Requested by fellow modder, two other modders and myself competitively made the same project. one modder dropped out (while helping me with mine) and the other produced a less complete mod.

This is a custom mesh and retexture, available in both male and female versions.

Mod for Grishnakah Custom armor and weapons. requested and made within a space of about half an hour.

Custom retextures exclusively.

Mothership Zeta Content Restored A mindnumbing project to build a master file modding resource (now in use on at least two or three major mods in progress)

Restores the included content within Fallout new vegas held over from the F3 Mothership Zeta DLc. nothing custom, but a LOT of work generating the SDK references manually.

Noisome Infiltrator Requested mod, an unsilenced version of the Infiltrator weapon from the F3 DLc, The Pitt. resources used were hold-overs included within the FNV files but not used.

Custom mesh work consisted of removing the silencer mesh part.

Custom retextures and meshes.

Scarab Laser Rifle

Unique and powerful laser rifle variant, theme is Blue. the gun is retextured to be predominantly in a blue texture scheme. this extends to any weapon-modkits applied. the projectile is also blue, though as noted, the core of the beam is actually red, lending it a purple overall colour.

Custom textures and projectile. quite popular mod.

Tar-3 Tesla Assault Rifle Unique energy weapon, shoots bluey-white electrical beams in rapid fire,

Custom mesh and textures, pretty popular.

Tesla Thrower - Lightning gun

Large two-handed heavy weapon. shoots a stream of lightning a fair distance. does excessive and fun damage to all targets particularly robots and power armor.

Unique concept, not successfully achieved in any other mod released on the nexus. a follow-on to my own Tesla Beam Cannon mod for Fallout 3. (which has a similar cousin made by someone else here on the fallout new vegas nexus)

Custom mesh and projectile.

The Paradox

Unique silenced and scoped Hunting shotgun. so named due to the paradox of a buckshot firing shotgun being a long ranged weapon.

surprisingly effective, particularly when paired with Frag-12.

Custom mesh.

Two-handed 10mm Smg Failed mod, tweaked the 10mm SMG to use the two-handed animation sets. but this screwed up the reload animations. didn't feel bothered enough to fix it. N/A
Vault 21 Doors - Modders Resource Retextured Vault Doors as a Modders Resource, requested by Sniperdude300 Custom Edited Retexture
Wastestroller Outfit

Unique outfit, combination of prewar dress with a post-war jacket and boots.

Custom mesh
