Fallout: New Vegas Beautification Project
by Tore Andersen
The Fallout NV Beautification Project is an extensive
enhancement guide for Fallout: New Vegas. It will improve graphics & effects,
fix errors, improve stability on newer systems and optionally add some lore-friendly content. All together, this
guide will give Fallout: New Vegas a well deserved make-over and make it run on Windows 7/8/10 without problems. See screenshots below.

1 - Brief info about the project
The Fallout New Vegas Beautification Project (FNBP) has it's own unique graphical settings, and has step-by-step installation instructions with options for different systems. You don't need any experience to follow the guide, only some patience and preferably a good internet connection.
Bethesda used the same game engine for Fallout: New Vegas, as
they did for Fallout 3. Not the "friendliest" game engine to new computer systems,
but fortunately this can be changed. With this guide, Fallout: New Vegas will
become more immersive, have better graphics, and run perfectly well on newer
systems. The huge amount of fan-made mods &
enhancements has made it possible to get pretty decent graphics and visual
effects. However, it's a very time consuming process to figure out which mods to
use. Which mods work together, which mods are lore-friendly, and which mods are
100% stable. It takes a lot of research, downloading and testing. This
guide can save you months of work, and narrow it down to a few hours instead. It's made as
a step-by-step instruction for installation and setup. No experience needed. The
focus is on enhancing the graphics, improving stability and providing the most
beautiful and FPS friendly ENB render. Besides the graphic render, FNBP also focus on
expanding the game with new lore-friendly content and characters, while staying true to the original
lore and style. Everything is in line with the Fallout
universe, just with enhanced visuals and atmosphere. Fallout is a post apocalyptic adventure, and
therefore not as vibrant as eg. the Elder Scrolls games, but better effects
and more atmospheric lighting doesn't make Fallout: New Vegas any less fun to play.
The Fallout NV Beautification Project will make Fallout: New Vegas look much better than the original game, and improve stability at the same time. Even on older systems. See screenshots below.
2 - Before getting started
Before the enhanced graphic settings (The ENB) can be applied, some
modifications (Mods) need to be installed, and some settings need to be changed.
1 - Make sure that Fallout: New Vegas is updated to the latest version, and that all DLC's are installed.
2 - Make sure that you have about 75GB of free space, if you want to install all recommended mods.
3 - Sign up at the Nexus. (LINK) - It's free and takes about 2 minutes. The Nexus site is the main source of mods used in this guide.
The FNBP guide has 3 main sections. Mod installation, ENB settings and Tweaking. They ALL need to be followed one by one for everything to work properly.

Brief info about Fallout: New Vegas
Fallout: New Vegas is an open-world action RPG from 2010, set in a post apocalyptic
1950's inspired future. The story takes place in and around a completely
devastated Las Vegas, Nevada (plus parts of Arizona & California), know in-game as the "Mojave
Desert". Even though the Fallout franchise was bought by Bethesda a couple
of years earlier, and Bethesda made Fallout 3 in 2008 them selves, Fallout: New
Vegas was developed by Obsidian Entertainment, and had several of the developers
from the original Fallout 1 & 2 on board. Fallout: New Vegas is considered by
many to be the best game in the series so far. (2018) It has a lot of "Old
fallout" feel to it, even though it runs on Bethesda's Gamebryo engine like
Fallout 3. In my opinion, Obsidian actually did a better job utilizing the
engine than Bethesda did them selves with Fallout 3.
The story of New Vegas takes place in 2281, 4 years after the events of Fallout 3, and 204 years after "The Great War". The player is started off as a Courier, transporting a package across the Mojave Desert to New Vegas city. The Courier is ambushed, robbed, shot and left to die in the desert, but somehow survives. After being found by a local scavenger and brought to a doctor, the player starts his/her journey to find the killers and find the stolen package. The journey will get the player mixed up in a conflict about control over the city of New Vegas and the Mojave Wasteland.
