DETAILED NVR3 INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS FROM START TO FINISH.


STEP 1)  Download and install Fallout Character Overhaul 2.3.1.  That is NOT the main version of the file.  Version 2.3.1 is at the bottom of the Files page.  If you install version 3.0 at the top of the page, you will have endless issues.  The texture paths were changed in v3.0 and they will not work with NVR3.  It will break.  You will have pink faces.  You will bug me with questions that have been answered many many times.  VERSION 2.3.1!!!!!!  NOT VERSION 3.0!!!!!!!!!

FCO 2.3.1 Installer Options:

Most of these I don't bother with.  I did test these out:

A)  First page, Other Textures:  Hair Textures.  This was a bit of a mixed bag.  In most cases, definite improvement.  However, in some cases, such as with white hair, there were definite drawbacks.  Take a look at the eyebrows on Easy Pete both with and without this - I think without looks much better.  It seems like light shines off of white hair much too brightly with these textures.  Still, on darker hair textures (which most of them are), I do see what I think is on the whole a noticable improvement.  Bear in mind there may also be a bit of a performance hit using these too, though it can be hard to tell on my system.  If the eyebrows is the main thing that bothers you with these, and you are using MO2, you can go into the Filetree and "hide" the file characters/textures/hair/eyebrow.dds.  That completely fixed Easy Pete's eyebrows for me, and I don't think the vanilla eyebrow textures look bad on FCO's eyebrow meshes.

B)  First page, Other Textures:  Eye Textures.  I didn't really note a big difference, but this is something I don't tend to notice anyway.  You can try it, it won't hurt anything except possibly performance?  Don't know.

C)  Second page, Roberts Patch:  If you are using Roberts male body replacer, definitely use the Roberts Patch.  I got horribly mismatched hand textures without it.

D)  Second page, NPC Addons:  NVR3 doesn't address most of these, so use them if you prefer the image in the installer to what the base mod gives you.  I do think both versions of Willow by Dracomies, included in the QRNVR3 installer, are excellent and would use those instead.



STEP 2)  Install New Vegas Redesigned 3.  First install the main file - "New Vegas Redesigned 3 version 3.7".  Then install "Update from 3.7 to 4.4".  If you're using MO2, I recommend to "Merge" the Update into the primary 3.7 installation.  As for the "Compatibility with other mods" optional file, I have remade most of those patches for QRNVR3 which are available during installation.  The exceptions are the Lings and Mikoto patches, since I can't even find Lings anymore and don't use Mikoto.  If these no longer work and there is a need for them to be remade for QRNVR3, and someone can direct me with a link to Lings, let me know.


STEP 3)  Install QRNVR3.  Follow the rest of the instructions on my description page.

Excellent guide, thanks so much! Character models are vastly improved after following this guide.

Heads up to anyone wondering:
- install FCO with Roberts patch first
- install redesign (following all QRNVR3 steps)
- install Roberts (and pipboy fix patch)

Installing Roberts prior to redesign ends up with the couriers body completely messed up and a big black square on the chest

A little confused: whenever I install New Vegas Redesigned 3, my character and every NPC has an extra set of floating eyebrows. I have absolutely no clue how to remedy this issue, and would appreciate help if possible. Is it because I installed the mod incorrectly? Did I install FCO incorrectly? I use Mod Organizer 2 if that helps any. Thank you for reading.

A little Question do I clean NVR with FNVeditautoclean because LOOT says it has dirty plugins which is the NVR, Bitter springs redesign, and Gomorrah Redesign?
