My Way To Fallout New Vegas Provides Three Paths



[In My Footsteps] : tag along start to finish and recreate my personal build.
[Cowboy] : stop after any section and venture into the Mojave Wasteland on your own.
[Dine and Dash] : add individual sections to your already modded game.

If you add random sections to your Load Order you need prior modding knowledge to troubleshoot your setup. Choose the [Dine and Dash] Perk with caution as it may quickly become [Demolition Expert].
The sections listed below can be used individually without concern:

Fresh Start

Fresh Start



Primitive modding is a blight on Caesar’s dominion. Commence the cleansing.

– Open Windows Explorer

– Navigate to Steam/SteamApps/Common
– Delete the Fallout New Vegas folder.

– Navigate to Users/<User Account>/Documents/My Games
– Delete the Fallout New Vegas folder.

– Navigate to <OS Drive>:/Users/<User Account>/AppData/Local
– Delete the Fallout New Vegas folder.

– Open Steam/Library. Right click Fallout New Vegas. Uninstall it.

When installing a tested load order make sure that past modding sessions are pushing up daises. Left over files, that you may be unaware of, have the potential to buck you off the horse.

– Open Windows Explorer

– Navigate to the Fallout New Vegas game folder.
– Double-click unins000.exe. Yes at the warning window. No when asked, Do you want to keep all saved games.

When installing a tested load order make sure that past modding sessions are pushing up daises. Left over files, that you may be unaware of, have the potential to buck you off the horse.
