All buildings are gone

Post by Simaril43 » Sat Aug 27, 2022 11:13 pm

I was modding the game through Mod organizer 2 but for some reason it deleted my instance and I had to make a new on. I ended up reinstalling and enabling all my mods again. When I got to my save all the buildings were all gone and were now explanation marks like you see when things are missing. I tried to get the same mods especially the environmental ones to see if it could bring them back but to no avail. What am I doing wrong?

An exclamation mark means that the mesh for an object is missing. Building meshes are in the base game files unless you use a mod that overwrites these or replaces the model definitions with something that points somewhere else in the folder structure. If that "somewhere else" is missing, you'll see exclamation marks.

I don't use MO2 or any other mod manager, so I can't say. My guess is that you need to create a clean TTW profile. Then you can try to load your savegame just to see if the buildings are there again. If they are, you can try to add mods one by one and verify, if the problem reoccurs. If it does, the last added mod must have broken the game.

Rule of thumb is to only use mods that are confirmed to be compatible with TTW and if it is unclear, verify beforehand. This requires some modding knowledge and FNVedit.
