I'm new to modding New Vegas, so I followed Sinitar's U.L.T.I.M.A.T.E modding guide https://www.sinitargaming.com/nv.html. I have installed all the graphics/ texture mods and decided to go with Mojave Veteran gameplay mod list to further add to the game. After installing Project Nevada and the subsequent patches recommended by Sinitar, my game now displays the "missing master" error and loads into a starting screen with no options. Other forums online recommended I use NVSEdit to figure out the error. According to these forums, NVSEdit is supposed to stop when it encounters an error, which never happened for me. To be sure it wasn't Project Nevada, I uninstalled it and lauched the game again. Same issue. At this point I'm really not sure what it could be.
I was wondering if anybody can help me out. I have included screenshots of my load order and NVSEdit (just to make sure it didn't actually show the error at the bottom and I didn't know what it meant) below.
PS: why do I have way more mods than plugins? I'll include a SC of my NMM below as well.
