I've been working on a couple of mods for New Vegas and was wondering if it is at all possible to create .bsa files as one of the mods requires external files (textures, meshes ect.) and when I eventually finish them and upload them to Nexus I would much rather have all files in a .bsa file instead of having them loose which would then require people to put them in the appropriate folders.

 

I know (assume) most people who use Nexus know how to put the loose files in the right folders but its mainly an OCD thing where I would feel relaxed knowing everything my mod required is in one place and that in all it only consists of an .esp file and a .bsa file.

 

I am aware that in Skyrim's Creation Kit you can create .bsa files but I've looked in the Fallout: New Vegas G.E.C.K and you can't do it for that.

 

Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

 

P.S. I'm sure I've downloaded mods for New Vegas that have .bsa files but if I am mistaken and there's absalutely no way to create .bsa files for New Vegas then never mind, I'll live (in a messy data world).

You can use BSA creator, a tool included in FOMM.

I'm an idiot, I've had the FOMM since I've had Fallout: New Vegas (about a year) but had never thought to look as I rarely use it now because I prefer to manually install mods, thanks for pointing that out.

I've come to like BSAopt. It's on Skyrim Nexus, but it supports Fallout archives as well. I won't say it's better than the FOMM one, because I rarely make bsa files, but it does read the archive, and can just update, instead of having to remake the whole thing, which makes it a bit faster it seems, it also has a 64-bit version, which means it can make use of more RAM on your system if you have it.

64 bit, nice. I wonder if it can flag ogg's correctly....that would be very useful.

Not sure. I do know that BSAopt is being used for the TTW installer, which works very well. Which brings up another thing, BSAopt can be run with command line.
