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.
