If you want to use the full step-by-step guide, here is what you need to get started:

1: The latest version of Fallout: New Vegas with all DLC's installed.
2: About 75GB of free space. *If you plan to install all recommended mods.
3: A Nexus account and the Nexus Mod Manager. (LINK) *Nexus is the main source of mods used in this guide.
4: Please follow ALL 3 sections of the guide. The mods alone will not work without proper settings and a correct load-order.






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.


















Fallout: New Vegas is an action role-playing video game developed by Obsidian Entertainment and published by Bethesda Softworks. The game is a spin-off of the popular Fallout series, and is set in a post-apocalyptic version of the Mojave Desert. The game was released for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 in 2010.

One of the most striking features of Fallout: New Vegas is its open-world gameplay, which allows players to explore the vast and dangerous wasteland at their own pace. The game's story is centered around the player character, known as the Courier, who is on a quest to track down the person who tried to kill them and steal a mysterious package they were delivering. Along the way, the player will encounter a wide variety of characters and factions, each with their own agendas and motivations.

One of the hallmarks of the Fallout series is its branching narrative, and Fallout: New Vegas is no exception. The player's choices throughout the game will have a significant impact on the story and the ending they receive. This adds a great deal of replayability to the game, as players can experience different outcomes depending on the choices they make.

Another standout aspect of Fallout: New Vegas is its graphics. The game's art style is heavily influenced by the 1950s aesthetic of the original Fallout games, and the character models and environments are highly detailed and realistic. The game's lighting and special effects also add to the immersive experience, making the player feel like they are truly in a post-apocalyptic wasteland.

The development of Fallout: New Vegas was led by Obsidian Entertainment, a studio known for their work on role-playing games like Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic II and Neverwinter Nights 2. The game's development team worked closely with Bethesda Softworks, the creators of the Fallout series, to ensure that the game stayed true to the series' roots while also introducing new elements and gameplay mechanics.

In addition to the base game, Fallout: New Vegas has also received a number of community modifications, or "mods," that add new content and gameplay options to the game. These mods range from simple cosmetic changes to major new storylines and gameplay elements. Some of the most popular mods include the New Vegas Bounties series, which adds new quests and characters to the game, and the Project Nevada mod, which introduces new combat and stealth mechanics.

Overall, Fallout: New Vegas is a highly engaging and immersive role-playing game that offers players the freedom to explore a vast open world, shape their own story, and experience a wide range of gameplay options. With its branching narrative, detailed graphics, and extensive modding community, the game offers a truly unique and memorable gaming experience.
