Did Fallout 4 do permanent damage to the FNV community?

So. Yeah. It seems like a lot of mod authors and screen-archers went over to Fallout 4 when it came out and left FNV behind. All well and good. However, it seems like many people who were active for years on the New Vegas Nexus went to Fallout 4, got bored, and stopped posting on the site altogether. It's almost like Fallout 4 stole the spotlight from FNV, but did not have as long a post-release lifespan as Fallout New Vegas did. I wonder what will happen to the Fallout community if a new game does not come out in the next 5 years or so? Will Fallout 4 sustain the community on its own until the next game comes out, will people go back to New Vegas, or will the Fallout community dry up completely? Any thoughts? Fallout is my favorite franchise, and not being able to see any cool new mods or screenshots from my favorite authors on the New Vegas Nexus makes me sad, and it's even worse knowing that those authors aren't active in Fallout 4 either.

No.If people are still making

No.If people are still making mod's for Fallout 3,a game that's way older,then New Vegas will be just fine.Fallout 4 doing any sort of damage is nonsense.

Well hopefully really getting

Well hopefully really getting the word out about TTW especially when the newest version is released will help some. Should draw people back into playing and modding again. I know that I can't wait. Have been keeping tabs but not playing any fallout at all. Just patiently waiting for 3.0.

Two things stemmed the tide

A few things to consider:

1) There is no GOTY version of Fallout 4 coming in 2017, Bethesda has doubled down on their "Season Pass" advertising.

2) F4SE, the fallout 4 script extender was a non-starter due to the complexity of hacking a 64-bit application, it exists but doesn't actually do anything useful.

3) TTW 3.0 is on the horizon, like all announced "content updates" you see the waters recede before the tidal wave. World of Warcraft has lost millions of dollars by announcing expansions too early.

Many Fallout 4 modders have

Many Fallout 4 modders have more in common with the Skyrim community than they do with New Vegas modding. 

Many Fallout 4 modders are new to the series. 

F4SE is being developed, now btw.

Sort of forgot about that but

Sort of forgot about that but it's very true about many FO4 modders being more in common with the Skyrim community than really having a background with FO games. So it makes sense that they would return to Skyrim once they got bored by FO4. In their eyes and probably many in the Skyrim community FO4 was no Skyrim. And FO4 definitely probably didn't convert many of them to the FO games.

People also still make mods

People also still make mods for FO1 and FO2. I have been helping with the english translation of Fallout of Nevada. A total conversion for Fallout 2 that was released only in russian.

Bernt, one of the most

Bernt, one of the most talented and prolific screenarchers on the Nexus, has returned to FNV after getting bored of Fallout 4. Perhaps my pessimism was misplaced, and other people will follow his example and not abandon the series.

I don't think so; the 'world'

I don't think so; the 'world' is so rich in possibilities, it always leaves something to the imagination. I think Beth should change things around though on the next pass- they should design the environment (which, to me, is one of their strongest points), have their concepts coded by another independent team (contract out programmers with potentially more experience- multithread it all), the script written by those who can do 'story telling' better (professional writers/ directors). Something like that.

I don't think FO4 ruined the

I don't think FO4 ruined the FNV community at all.   Even though the FNV mods have reduced, the community is still more civil than F04.   I think the modding community has suffered a lot in Fallout 4 because FO4 drew a larger immature crowd and some of the problems were caused by Bethesda's actions.   I hope in the next FO release, the community will be more the way it was in FNV.   Too much attitude in the FO4 community from both modders and mod users.  And while there are some self-entitled mod users causing issues, there are some curmudgeon modders who should remain out of the public eye.  I am hoping in the next release, Fallout returns to its roots and the community heals and we see more FNV modders in the next release because I think some talent is missing from FO4.

I think the FO3/NV modders

I think the FO3/NV modders are more mature because... they're more mature. FO3 and NV are "old" games, and those of us who enjoy them are probably older (I am). While I'm not saying all FO3/NV modders are older, probably more of them are. FO4 is a brand new game, and probably appeals more to the younger crowd. Not saying there are no older modders in the FO4 community, but there are probably not as many.

I will definitely agree with

I will definitely agree with you jlf65 and then there are some older F04 citizens who are older but immature.

When FO4 came out didn't it

I know that I sort of touched on this in an earlier post but when FO4 came out didn't it actually attract a lot of modders from Skyrim? And a lot of those modders had never been involved at all with FO games before. So they showed up with much different attitudes as did a lot of users who probably also came from Skyrim and had also never played any of the older FO games. Not sure age really is the issue though it probably does contribute some. I think it's just a lack of never having played FO3 or FONV and only a game like Skyrim which is a total different animal. And by this I mean Bethesda games. One finally small note to add is that when I was following FO4 there were people who were constantly asking for Skryim type mods to be added to FO4. And some of the request were rather ridiculous in nature. I mean asking for dragons and spells? Please....

Yep. And some younger modders who are quite mature, I'm sure.

FO4 was more like Skyrim than Fallout, with many people calling it "Skyrim with guns," so yes, quite a few Skyrim modders migrated over to FO4, and many more FO4 people asked for conversions of common Skyrim mods. Funny things actually appeared for FO4, with the funniest (to me) being Shouts.
