I've disabled and reenabled authenticator, and I've tried LODgen to try and get rid of these weird far distance textures, I've installed it into programs (x86) so I use administrator to run it as the Nexus mods page provides the choice as a second option. I've installed relevant NMC texture packs patches for LOD. I've installed TESVLL's FNV edition.
 
This error pops up every time I try to run the LODgen program:
 
[WastelandNV] No options file found: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Edit Scripts\FNVLODGen_FalloutNV_WastelandNV_Options.txt
 
[WastelandNV] Saving LODGen data: C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Edit Scripts\LODGen.txt
 
[WastelandNV] Objects LOD generation error: Cannot create file "C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\Fallout New Vegas\Edit Scripts\LODGen.txt". The system cannot find the path specified
 
I've been trying to fix this for hours now.

If you were to remove the inactive plugins (10), you would still be very close or over the plugin limit.  If you are you the FNV Mod Limit Fix, we need to know what else you are using that does not show in your load order.  If you aren't using the mod limit fix, you should be.

 

And you haven't tried everything.  You first need to get Steam and the game installed out of "Program Files".  The Windows User Account Control prevents any changes to be made to any file in "Program Files".

I already installed the FNV mod limit fix. I don't have another drive to install steam and FNV's relevant files into, would it be alright to make a new file in Documents or in another recommended place in the C: drive and install from there? I'm relatively new to this.

With everything re-enabled, the mod lod order is:

You don't need another drive to install the game outside of program files.  Program Files is a protected file folder on the hard drive and Windows UAC prevents any changes to any files installed in the Program Files folder.  You cannot even remove the "Read Only" flag from the Program Files folder.

 

You can install Steam and any games anywhere else on your existing hard drive.  You can even install Steam directly to "C:" and run the game from there.

 

So, again, what else do you have installed that does not show in the load order?  You know, things like NVSE, NVSR, 4 GB patch, texture mods, etc.

Did you install all resources from the FNVLODGen page? Your issue has to do with something going wrong with lod generation. The program is missing the assets to correctly generate the lods, so it's coming out like this.

 

The only other thing you could do is delete everything from textures/landscape/lod and meshes/landscape/lod. You can also just delete the lod folder itself from those locations. This will reset your lods back to vanilla.

As the others have said.

 

Please see the wiki "Installing Games on Windows Vista+" article for why the original default Steam behavior of installing games to the "C:\Program Files" or "C:\Program Files(x86)" folder tree was bad (they learned better, and don't do that any more but didn't change it for older games); and why "disabling UAC and running as Administrator" is NOT sufficient, with instructions how to move it.  Among other things, later versions of Windows (since the game was released) force files in "system protected" folder trees to be "read only" regardless of how you set them manually.  It includes instructions on how to correctly move the Steam folders out of that folder path.

Don't move it to "User\Documents" either, as "executable" files are not permitted to run from there for similar "anti-malware" reasons.

 

This is the single most important thing you can do to fix and protect yourself against problems in the future.  As much of a PITA as that is, it's never going to be any easier than now.  System updates often cause issues with games installed to these folder trees.  With the game moved out of the default location you will not need to be running it as an "Administrator Account", which is safer.  Please see the 'Restoring to "Vanilla"' section of the wiki "FNV General Mod Use Advice" article as well.

  If you did move Steam out of the default location, then likely any access privilege problem is one of "File and Folder permissions" on the parent "root" folder under which you installed the games.  If this is not set correctly to allow at least "System", "Administrators", and "Users" to have "Full Control" then you can't overwrite other files or make changes.  You then (while logged in as an "Administrator Account") need to enable the "Properties | Security | Advanced | Change Permissions" setting of the parent folder to enable the box: "Replace all child object permissions with inheritable permissions from this object", so those changes get applied to the existing files and sub-folders.
