    Default Maxios' Modding Mania

    This thread is about my modding of New Vegas. Whenever I finish making a mod, or begin making a new one, I'll post on here. I wasn't sure if this was supposed to go in Arts & Crafts, but I figured it'd fin in better here. Each of the mods changes aspects of the game to be the universe of the Nexus FFRP. After every mod is made, I'll save them all together to make a big Conversion mod.

    Mods made (I forgot a couple)*:
    Spoiler
    Show
    A Courier:
    Version 1
    • Adds in A Courier (Who, in the Nexus was THE Courier, but in this is changed to just a Courier)
    • The Courier spawns in the Prospector Saloon, in Goodsprings.
    • The Courier has no dialouge yet, but it will be added in v2.
    • The Courier will eventually give a quest to try and find the missing Maxios
    .

    Moff's 5th Clone: Adds in The Moff's 5th Clone to the game
    • Version 1
    • Moff #5 will spawn in the school in Goodsprings
    • This Moff is the most quiet of all the Moff's, and has only one line of dialouge.
    • In the quest "Moff Hunter", which will be added in soon, this Moff is one of the targets the PC must kill.


    Gordon: Adds in Gordon
    • Version 1
    • Gordon will spawn in the Saloon in Goodsprings, but as soon as the Trog's Tavern mod is finished, he'll go there.
    • Gordon is the leader of the AMEN Faction
    • Gordon has very high HP, and a Plasma Rifle, so attacking him at low levels is certain death


    Cicily:
    • Version One
    • Replaces Chet in Goodsprings with Cicily
    • Cicily provides the exact same functions as Chet
    • Dialouge has yet to be fixed, so Cicily is still referred to as Chet.


    Skillbook Name Change:
    • Version Two
    • Changes the names of various skillbooks to fit in with the Nexus theme.
    • In example, the Big Book of Science is renamed Riv's Big Book of Science
    • In another example, Guns and Bullets is renamed Reinholdt's Guns and Bullets


    McNinja:
    • Version One
    • Adds Dr McNinja, the most epic character possible, to the game. Gordito is also added with this mod.
    • Dr McNinja does NOT have a Mask yet, so I'm trying to fix that
    • For some reason, Gordito is NOT spawning with a mustache. These glitches will be fixed in the next version


    Perks!:
    • Version One
    • Changes the description of nearly every perk obtainable
    • Adds in old perks from Fallout 3, like Barkskin or Junior Survivor (Note: It does NOT give a bonus to survival)



    Mods to be made**:
    Spoiler
    Show
    The Moff Ghoul: Adds a Ghoulified version of The Moff to the game. I already made this mod before, but I really screwed up when statting out it's health and location.
    The Empire of Future Past: Adds in a group of Time-Traveling Romans who come into conflict with the Legion.
    Evil Maxios: Replaces Mr. House with Maxios' evil clone
    Heroics: Adds in HALO (Heroic Anti-Law Breaker Orginization)
    Malicious Intent: Adds in AMEN (Association of the Malicious, Evil, and Nefarious)
    The Living Dead: Adds in Becky, Undead Town, Zombies, and perhaps a quest
    Brothers in Bond: A series of mods adding notes to the game, detaliling various adventures after the nukes dropped.


    *-These are the finished mod. When a mod in the "Mods to be made" section if finished, it'll be moved here.

    **-These are the mods I'm currently working on, and this list will be updated every day

    DC disappears, and his disappearence becomes one of the greatest mysterious of the Nexus.

    2015:
    Evil Maxios takes over New Vegas with little opposistion. Under his rule, the city becomes an oasis in the Wastes.
    A group of zealots set up an orginization called the Crusaders. The Crusaders are dedicating to destroying any form of mutation caused by radioactivity, be it Ghouls or Giant Ants. They are also dedicated to harvesting technology and protecting the innocent. Because of their means, they make few allies, and many enemies.
    The surviving members of the Acromynian Empire begin setting up the kingdom again. They try to take over New Vegas, which was once part of the Empire, but are driven off by Evil Maxios' TV-Guard-Bots

    2016:
    A small group of the Crusaders, fed up with their leader, leave to set up their own branch of the Crusaders, one that's a lot more tolerant of mutations.

    A tribal forms his own empire, the Legion. The Legion immediantly becomes an important part of the Wastes, known for their cruelty

    2023:
    A young Courier finds a Platinum while exploring some ruins. This is the same trip that the Empire and Evil Maxios are hunting for. The Courier is hired by the Empire to take the Chip to their base at the Acro Dam.
    A leader of one of the casinos in New Vegas finds out the secret of the chip, and begins a plan that will end with him taking over New Vegas. He, and some hired guns, intercept the Courier, and take the Chip, severly injuring the Courier in the process. The Courier is found by a TV-Guard-Bot named Rick, and is taken to a doctor in the small town in Goodsprings...

    Uh... any chance we could see some of these mods, you know, try them out? Or at least hear a bit more about how you decided to go about making them and such?

    As it stands now, you just sort of go "hey guys, I made a mod, it has Dr McNinja in it" and I'm like "okay, cool".

    I suppose what I'm saying is that there's not much to discuss here unless you give us some details.

    I'll upload a couple of them to the Fallout New Vegas Modding Nexus in a few minutes, and I'll also post some screens. I'm going to edit the OP to give more info on the finished mods.

    Edit: OP edited to give more info on finished mods. Screenshots will be edited in next

    Two new mods done:
    Brothers in Bond Log One
    Brothers in Bond Log Two
    There will be other logs, later on. These logs tell the story of the Courier, Sunny Smiles, and Maxios, as they explored the Wastelands together in 2014. The logs give background to the game, and also explore Maxios' disappearence.

    Edit: Log Three is complete

    I see no mods and no screenshots. What is the purpose of this thread? It seems like a notepad document would work just as well.
