Thanks for checking out my post. I got back into New Vegas recently to try out the New California mod (which was a fantastic experience BTW) and after finishing it I felt in the mood to mod the s*** out of regular NV and do another playthrough. I finally got everything working together with all of the necessary patches, made all of my merged patches to keep the plugin count low, and customized all settings and keybindings to my liking. The game seemed to be running perfectly, too.
And then I tried to enter the abandoned shack near yangtze in a new game, and everything went weird. I entered the cell and everything in it, including NPC's and items, were stuck in me. It was making a god-awful noise of tens of items crashing together multiple times every second. I wanted to see if I could exit the pile of NPC's and items, so I opened the console and tcl'd. That stopped the noise, but I still wasn't able to exit the stack of items and NPC's. It was almost as if the worldspace had been reduced to the size of one pixel (but it wasn't, the shack looked normal barring the fact that everything non-static was sharing the same pixel with me).
Now initially I just chocked this up to a one time occurrence only at this location, and I was willing to just live with not being able to enter this one location. I figured maybe too many mods were trying to edit that one cell. However, in the same save, I then went to see Ringo in the Goodsprings gas station and the exact same thing happened. I entered the cell to find myself, my companion, Ringo, and every item in the room inside of my body with me unable to move.
I have a LOT of mods, and legitimately no idea what could be causing this. I'm hoping that one of you has experienced this before, and know an easy fix. It doesn't happen in every cell. Doc Mitchell's house, Victor's shack, and the Saloon were perfectly fine.
So if anyone has any idea what the issue could be, please let me know! I'll post my load order if anyone wants it.
Thanks in advance!
