Modding advice and seperate play throughs

Hi guys,

I've had Fallout 3 Goty and Fallout New Vegas Goty for a while now and having never played either I thought I'd heavily mod Fallout 3 play that and then New Vegas.

After getting Fallout 3 to run on Windows 10 I installed lots of texture mods and game changing mods such as FWE and MM.Once I began a play through the game crashed quite frequently and I feel you could tell the age of the game,this began to get very annoying and I eventually quit and uninstalled.

Can I install TOTW and then play Fallout 3 and New Vegas as two separate games ? I'd prefer to start New Vegas after Fallout 3 fresh with a new character.

Also can is there a guide to follow for installation and mods maybe ?

I want to get the game looking as good as possible with maybe a few game changing mods such as mmm and Fwe if that's possible,I'm not too bothered about add on quests.

Oh and mod suggestions if possible please.

Many thanks in advance for any advice

TTW Version Compatibility: 

v2.9

Well yes you can play the FO3

Well yes you can play the FO3 portion first. When completed you can then start a new game with a new character and start in FONV. There is a mod I believe that will allow you to do so. Just drawing a blank right now since personally I've never used it myself. But if you don't find it somebody will most likely post what it is and how to use it.

Also just to point out that when playing FO3 in TTW it uses the FONV engine and seems to be much more stable and thusly more enjoyable.

Other than TTW's own guide

Other than TTW's own guide for installation I do not know of others except that guide created by AdonisVII called "Worlds of Tomorrow" at STEP http://wiki.step-project.com/User:Adonis_VII/TTW which is more involved but produces a wonderful result.

I completed his guide (which is under renovations) with some BS&T but had incredibly stable game play for many months.  I do now occasionally get CTD when transitioning through doors, but suspect that is related to demands on certain cells (Rivet City area) and some additional mods I thought I couldn't do without.  It is still much more stable than my STEP Skyrim install.

I am certainly not an old hand at installing mods, but know that good technique and restraint pays off as stable gameplay.

I would say the first one

I would say the first one might need some massaging to get it to work, you'll have to unpack it and fiddle with it. I don't know if it has an esp or not, if so... well it will need converted. NV one should be fine.

I tried to get them to work

I tried to get them to work Roy and discovered a problem whilst I was doing it,I wanted to start a game in Nv to test the Nv map.

So I started  a new game and didn't get the option of Mojave or the Capital it took me into a dark room unless I use the pipboy light with missing textures and I can drop off the map and be back in the same place.

The Capital Wasteland save I'd started to test mods still works fine,I'm not sure this is to do with the maps because if I disable them it's still the same.

Oh also if I disable startupmenu in Mo and start a new game I start in Nv.

I saw the hotfix for the startupmenu  so downloaded and installed it and still had the same problem,now if I disable it I start in Vault 101,but still no option to choose.

Just to update installing the hotfix for slow loading seems to have got the startupmenu working,I'll start a new game save and try starting another new one

I think things may be fixed now,I was just looking at the ttw performance guide,do I make the .ini changes in mod organizer ?

Now, we shall enable the engine's built in purging within the three INIs mentioned above. If you're playing with Zan's AutoPurge Crash Protector, uninstall it before applying these superior changes.

bPreemptivelyUnloadCells=0 to bPreemptivelyUnloadCells=1
bSelectivePurgeUnusedOnFastTravel=0 to bSelectivePurgeUnusedOnFastTravel=1

I'm trying to set this up 1.)

I'm trying to set this up 1.) Search for Fallout New Vegas within the Profile Inspector. If you use Mod Organizer, add the FalloutMO.exe to the profile. Set "Multi-display/mixed-GPU acceleration" to Single display performance mode. Finally set "Power Managment Mode" to Prefer maximum performance. Here's a visual example. http://i.imgur.com/6nYPWVX.png

But I can't find falloutmo.exe to add any ideas ?

Temporarily rename FalloutNV

Temporarily rename FalloutNV.exe to it so you can add it, then rename it back.
