I'm new to the whole Modding thing for my PC. I've currently looked all over sites to find out how install Mods in FNV, but all I see is the Fallout 3 instructions on how to install it.

What are the instructions on how to install it on Fallout NV?

The instructions are pretty much the same.

The only big difference is the location of the New Vegas files. Those are in your steam directory. If you accepted the defaults for steam this would be:
64bit OS: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas
32bit OS: C:\Program Files\Steam\steamapps\common\fallout new vegas

There should be a \Data directory there. This is the location you would use for installation.

Thanks! I have a hopefully not-so-stupid question. When I'm at that point in the folders, will I drop the extract into the data file IN the New Vegas folder or just in the new vegas folder? This is just the final step I'm unsure of in the above directions.
