The topic is basically an expanded version of the title. I installed FOMM and BOSS shortly after, because I'm new to modding Fallout NV. I've modded Oblivion before, but I know that Load order is a bit different for every game, so I wanted to get a sorting utility for security's sake.

 

it DID go ahead and sort everything out, but it didn't recognize 4 mods- including Nevada skies, a major weather mod. I tried to update it through FOMM to see if it needed a new master list...and that crashed. Tried to update it after installing a fix, and it says it can't find the listed source site.

 

I guess what I'm saying is that I either need someone to take a good look at my Load Order, or someone to tell me how to update BOSS so it will read Nevada skies. It's a popular mod, so I figured BOSS would have it. 

 

A picture of my load order is forthcoming, but there's an 18 pound cat sleeping in my lap.  :ohdear: i'll get the screen shot off my desktop when he wakes up.

 

PS- I eventually want to install NVR, NVFR, Populated Freeside, and perhaps a few player houses. Where would it be best to put them, and would Boss at least recognize New Vegas Restored // New Vegas Freeside Restored?

 

Here is my Load Order Currently!

I actually managed to fix it on my own after setting Boss' update source to the right place and restarting it- it sorted everything out fine, and the load order seems good! I DID put Skies at the bottom- so thank you for that.  :blush:  BOSS recognizes everything and I'm good to go- works great!

 

A combination of frustration and beer on top of a bad day is not a good place for modding. Approaching it after a good night's sleep helped immensely.

Glad you got it working.

It took me hours of reading and googling to learn about load order and how to use  all the tools needed to make the game run smoothly with all the awesome mods available on this site so yeah...
