You just drag the data folder of the download into the data folder of your NV, which, by default, is my computer - C - program files - Bethesda - FalloutNV - Data
Meshes go to meshes and textures go to textures. The .esp just goes inside the data folder
If your directory doesn't have the meshes and textures folders, just create them

Then when you load up NV, before you click play, click data files and check the .esp of the mod you downloaded

The default directory should be:
64bit OS - C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas
32bit OS - C:\Program Files\steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas

If you have Steam installed to a different directory, then look in that directory.

You need to make sure it's in the Data folder. Also, here are a few things to try:

1. Set the GECK to Run as Administrator

2. Change the Show Hidden Folders and Files option

3. Set the game to Run as Administrator

4. If you're using a custom loader, make that Run as Administrator

Depends on the mod. Please check with the mod author on where to find it.

After downloading the mod and extracting the file (.esp) into C:\Program Files (x86)\steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Data I start up the game, select "Data Files", then select the files I want for the game (including the .esp file).... game starts... CTD!!! I keep running into this problem no matter what I try. I have even tried the "FOMM" and I get the same "...has stopped working..." message. I will emit I am a noob at mods and have no clue what to do now. Any help will be appreciated.
