So I got myself a copy of fallout new vegas to play. Everything goes fine except mods. I use the Nexus Mod Manager and have followed every single step on how to download and install mods. So my problem is that everything goes fine, the NMM installs the mod but at the moment of running the game it is still vanilla. I have already checked if the .esp mod files are selected, they are installed, everything seems to be functioning correctly. Yet they won't appear in game.

¿How can I fix that?

  • Have you tried installing the mods manually by placing them in the right folder manually? Nexus Mod Manager recently redesigned their system to make use of mod profiles, and I've found that sometimes, mod profiles fail to work properly. – Nzall Feb 19 '16 at 19:28
  • Well the mod files are in the correct folder, even manual install won't make them appear. – Danny Feb 21 '16 at 1:56
  • What folder is New Vegas installed into? What version of Windows do you have? Is UAC turned on? We need more details to be able to solve this problem. – SevenSidedDie Apr 8 '17 at 2:54

You don't use NMM, it's garbage. NMM causes a lot of problems and I wasted countless hours before I finally realized I needed to switch to MO. Use MO or FOMM instead. Basically, for any game that uses mods, you want to use something besides NMM, usually MO or MO2. For using Fallout New Vegas with mods, make sure you are launching through NVSE, not the Steam library, and have all the proper patches like YUP or FOOK, anti-crash mods like NVAC, and UIO - User Interface Organizer, The Mod Configuration Menu, The Weapon Mod Menu, and a HUD mod like One Hud - oHUD first, before you install any other mods.
