  • The second half of the Hoover Dam, behind the inaccessible door has had several changes such as the metal door to the Legate's Camp has been moved closer to the Dam. Also, the bridge/road to the Legate's Camp has been removed (can only be seen before battle at Hoover Dam).

OtherEdit

  • Added the achievements for Fallout: New Vegas add-on Honest Hearts.

Form ID changesEdit

For unknown reasons, numerous items have had their Form IDs changed, primarily—but not limited to—"behind the scenes" items like scripts and leveled item lists. These changes have been correctly implemented, in that other items which reference, incorporate, or otherwise refer to these changed items now point to the updated Form ID. Importantly, these updates can cause problems for any mods which altered the updated items prior to the patch, causing them to behave erratically, incorrectly, or even prevent the game from loading at all.

NotesEdit

Explanation of weapon statisticsEdit

  • "Base damage" is the damage done per melee swing or gun shot when the weapon hits its target.
    • For automatic melee weapons only, this is the damage done per second when the weapon is used outside of V.A.T.S.
  • "Min Spread" means the weapon has a minimum spread of that much degrees, even if the weapon skill is at maximum. So, if a weapon has a Min Spread of 5, bullets can go out of the barrel by at least 5 degrees off.
  • "Kill Impulse" is the physical effect a weapon has on the target after they are killed, as in how far they are knocked back or thrown.
  • "Spread" is not fully understood, but seems to affect only multi-projectile weapons or shots traveling over long distances.
  • "Sight FOV" is the field of view a weapon zooms to when aiming it. The lower the number is, the larger the zoom magnification.
