Is it possible to have the game be played "separately"?

Post by DrBots » Thu Jun 10, 2021 5:57 pm

To give some context to my question, I've been told the Fallout 3 modding community it mostly dead and I should get TTW. I've already started a game but I'm only 15 or so hours in.

Is it possible to start both games separately? I want to play Fallout 3 with New Vegas mechanics and mods, and when I finish Fallout 3 start a new playthrough in New Vegas.

You don't have to take the train if you don't want to. There isn't a mechanic to "end" the Fallout 3 side, but that's because Fallout 3 doesn't have one anyway with the Broken Steel DLC. Just stop playing and make a new character, or try the "Benny Humbles You" mod when you travel.

So I take it the "Benny Humbles You" mod basically resets my character?

There are two versions:

https://www.nexusmods.com/newvegas/mods/71112

The mod descriptions explain what they do.

Like Pinto says, all you have to do is play the FO3 side of TTW without ever taking the train to the New Vegas. Then you can just start a new game and pick to start in the Mojave Wasteland instead.

As long as you don't use the train in either wasteland, then you're pretty much playing each game on it's own. :D

If you never buy a train ticket, and don't grab the free one in the Capital Wasteland's station. Then you can't even use the train, so there's not much of a chance to accidentally travel (you also need to activate a switch inside the train to travel). ;)
