I am doing a complete vanilla playthrough before modding my game.

 

I have an ILS on my save. It's just one save I've been overwriting because I don't care a whole lot about being able to rescue things with a previous save. I just want to get familiar with the vanilla game first.

 

If I load the first save I made in the doc's house at the beginning, that loads, and if I then load my save, it loads. If I load my save when the game starts or "continue," then I get an ILS every time.

 

This ILS behavior seems to be baked into this save now, because subsequent saves still result in an ILS.

 

This seems to be a known issue and I'm curious if anyone knows why it happens and if there's any way to permanently fix it.

I'm guessing it 's an acronym for "Infinite Loading Screen" (ILS).  On that basis: Please see the paragraph about "auto-saves" under the 'Essentials for Getting Started' section of the wiki "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article.  If you have been using the built-in "auto-save" feature and you get the endless "roulette wheel" when loading a save game, then your current save game file is corrupted and you will have to either go back to a save before the corruption occurred (hard to tell) or start over.
 

Pure vanilla has plenty of bugs.  You need to install some "game fix" mods to avoid those pitfalls.  They will not affect the "pure nature" of your intended run through as described.  The builtin "save game" function is problematic and not really designed for overwriting the same file.  It's easy enough to save as new files and then go back and delete them all before your next "modded" run.

 

Please see the 'First Timer Advice' and 'Towards Game Stability' sections of the wiki "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article.

Auto-saves are off. It's one of the first things I do when playing Bethesda games.

As you have no mods, it can't be a "Missing Master File" problem.  The only other explanation for an ILS is a corrupted save game file: made more likely by re-using the same file.

 

You can  take a look at the 'Solutions to Starting the game problems' section in the wiki "Fallout NV Mod Conflict Troubleshooting" guide to see if there is anything else that suggests itself to you.
