Game becomes unstable with too many ESPs?

Recommended Posts

I only recently acquired New Vegas for PC after growing tired of it on console, and decided to completely revamp it with as many mods as I could working with a clean save and my experience modding Oblivion, and I was successful until I ran into a very unusual error.


I installed a few new mods and when I went to test them, the game became unstable. To be precise, all modded meshes, such as my pip-boy 2500, the faces of every character affected by the Fallout Character Overhaul (which is all of them save for my own), and other such modded resources fail to load and became missing mesh icons. The pause menu became unavailable (the esc key was unresponsive), the screen turned pink when I brought up the console (which may be due to a dynavision missing texture that added static to it) and if I attempted to enter a new cell the game would crash.


Obviously my first assumption was that there was a conflict, but couldn't find what it could possibly be when viewing the files. I uninstalled those mods anyway to be safe, and tried a different batch. The same problem occurred. After some experimentation I found that there wasn't any conflicts, just that the game would fail to load modded resources if I had any esp's active in the '8f' ranking of the load order. It is also worth mentioning that when loading a clean save, the game works fine at first until it finishes loading the esp in the 8f rank, then suddenly the meshes disappear and the game becomes unstable as described above. However, as soon as I deactivate any esps until there is no longer one in the '8f' slot, the game works fine.



This is my current WORKING load order. The game runs perfectly with the list posted here, but the second I activate any one of the unchecked esps shown or and any other esp (yes, even the innoculous TWO BEARS HIGHFIVING.esp and several weapon and armor additons), the game becomes unstable.

I'm really against the wall here. While I am more or less satisfied by the currect active mod list I would like to find a way to get a few more weapon/armor addons to work.

140 is when the trouble starts because of a bug with the game engine.


You can use the Plugin Utility to merge similar mods (like all the ILO, Nevada Skies, IWS) together to shorten your load order.


Also look for updates for your mods that may include an "Ultimate Edition" that merges all plugins into one file, like WMX does now.
