Fallout 3: New Vegas Modding Guide

This guide will help you get the BEST Fallout 3 & New Vegas experience possible. This is accomplished by combining Fallout 3 and NV into a single game that a single character can experience ALL OF almost seamlessly.

Step 1: Buy Fallout 3 Game of the Year Edition

Mod List:

Tale of Two Wastelands Fixes (Combines Unofficial Fallout 3 Patch with Yukichigai Unofficial Patch - YUP to fix bugs in both games at the same time. NEITHER is compatible with TTW on their own.)
MCM Mod Configuration Menu - -

Project Nevada - - (Enhances and changes the core gameplay to make it more interesting.)
Project Nevada Extra Options - (Adds more options)
Project Nevada Tale of Two Wastelands Patch (Makes Project Nevada work with TTW.)
Perk Overhaul & More Perks for Tale of Two Wastelands -
225 Max Level for Tale of Two Wastleands - (Just increases your max level to 255, Travel to New Vegas BEFORE level 31 to avoid any script glitches, from then on you are free to travel back and forth all you want.)
Vertibird Transport for Tale of Two Wastelands - (Helicopter that'll take you FROM New Vegas TO Fallout 3 and back again. Only works after you've traveled TO New Vegas for the first time.)
Chem Crafting Mod for Tale of Two Wastelands - (Adds Chem, Poison, and Energy Ammo crafting stations to Fallout 3 and New Vegas)

Wasteland Flora Overhaul - (Fertile version: Overhauls the trees and bushes)
Pipboy 2500 - (Brings back a Fallout 2-3 classic style pipboy. DO NOT INSTALL BEFORE EXITING VAULT 101. Use the Uninstall feature to disable prior to entering the "simulation" part of the main quest for Fallout 3, for New Vegas content you can use it forever without worry.)

An Ode to Bed - (Mod for HARDCORE MODE only: Allows you to heal 12% HP and 10% of any limb condition per hour slept. Will NOT restore broken limbs, ones with 0% condition -- you will still need a doctor's bag or doctor for that.)

Known Issues:

1 - If your load times become excessive, find and disable the TTW Options plugin, your load times should instantly snap back to normal. Any changes to your options made will NOT be lost.
2 - To avoid any script conflicts, try to start New Vegas BELOW, at, or close to level 30. The further beyond 30 you are when you start New Vegas for the first time, the higher the chance of having issues.
3 - Finding the way to NV for the first time can be difficult, I'll be putting up a TTW video on how to do that soon.
