Modding communities are odd. Some dogpile on a game, try to build Rome in a day, get discouraged/bored, and leave. Others stick with the same game for years, feeding it a steady diet of tweaks and changes, eventually transforming it into something entirely different. Fallout: New Vegas is the latter.
Here's SkyttsTV running through ten of the best Fallout: New Vegas mods from last year, making all of them pretty recent. It's a damn impressive collection, too—ranging from a Titan (as in, from Titanfall) in the game to a new companion complete with her own quests to redesigns of hundreds of characters. Oh, and there's a mod that lets you become a post-apocalyptic boxing champion, aka my dream career.
Here's the full list:
TitanFallout - Hopper31, dragbody
Weapons of the New Millenia, Millenia, Naky, many others
New Vegas - Enhanced Camera - LogicDragon
Vanessa - GePalladium
King of the Ring - Someguy
Nipton Rebuilt - Jokerine
War Trash - Quest Mod - Josh Griffiths
Coito Ergo Sum - Belthan (NSFW)
New Vegas Redesigned 3 - Dracomies, Weijiesen
On top of all that, Kirk wrote a guide to modding the Wasteland pretty a while back. Obviously, however, a lot has changed. What's your favorite Fallout: New Vegas mod of recent times? Which ones do you consider absolutely essential?
