I started using MO about a week ago and it was working really well but after I had to fix a body model mod due to disappearing torsos (was outside of MO at the time) I started up new vegas via MO and nv4gb but none of my mods were loaded and my local saves didn't show up, I looked through the forum and followed the advice on this thread https://forum.step-p...s-in-new-vegas/ and after using free commander found that MO wasn't adding the files to the game, I tested using nvse instead of nv4gb as well but to no avail, I am pretty certain that I have the english version of new vegas (steam shows the steamid as 22380) thanks in advance for any help

Okay we will need a couple of points clarified.

 

 

 

...working really well but after I had to fix a body model mod due to disappearing torsos (was outside of MO at the time)

What are you saying here? Is your 'fix' made by installing the mod outside of the MO environment? If so MO will not see it and that 'fix' will not be applied to your mod.

 

What mods and which files aren't being applied to the game?

Since you have stated you are new to MO, it is more than likely you may not be aware of how the installed mods are handled in the left-hand pane.

The wiki explains all of this but basically the lower the mod is, (ie. the higher the priority number) those files will win in a conflict. If the mod(s) in question here are losing in their conflict then the game won't 'see' them and they won't exist in the VFS.

Can you paste your modlist and plugin order either in

 tags, or a link to PasteBin or similar?

what I meant was that the mod I was fixing was installed outside of MO because it wouldn't install via MO, to answer your second question as far as I can tell(from loading the game up and via free commander) no mods or files are being applied to the game, after checking with free commander I have found that this only effects one profile, I will get the modlist and plugin order and post them when I get back from work

You cannot install mods directly into the data folder AND use MO.
Doing so will cause problems that will make any support offered useless.
