Modders restore missing Fallout: New Vegas content, companion, much much more (PCGamer)
Richard Cobbett at 10:00am August 17 2012
Much like earlier Obsidian game Knights of the Old Republic 2, what we got in Fallout: New Vegas was only part of what was planned, or even implemented only to be dummied out. Modders to the rescue! Investigating the source with forensic care, there are now many fixes available to do everything from turn Freeside back into the single map it was meant to be, to adding back characters that were cut. Better still, you can grab the necessary mods in a set of easy packages Ė right here!
There are more changes still to be made, but the ones on offer so far include full quests, missing characters, an in-engine version of the introduction, and several packs containing small changes that donít warrant their own full mods. Check the descriptions for compatibility information though, as a few apparently donít play well together (a Brahmin companion called Betsy and the new Open Freeside being the most obvious.) Head over here for a preview of what might be coming back later.
Since I'm currently playing New Vegas I won't install any of this until after I at least finish my vanilla playthrough, but this certainly seems to add a bit of content. Hopefully by the time I'm done they'll have worked out some of the compatibility issues.
Also recently PCGamer reported that another mod team had done the same for Knights of The Old Republic 2 (http://www.pcgamer.com/2012/07/25/community-heroes-modders-debug-and-restore-cut-content-in-knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/). But in regards to that game I have one big question: LucasArts, why is KOTOR2 not on Steam???? (while KOTOR is...)
