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.
