Although New Vegas Bounties I is not required to play NVB II, players are strongly urged to play through the first episode before playing this mod. There is a link to episode I in the "mirrors" tab. For players that completed episode I and simply wish to refresh their memory (or if you're hell-bent on skipping it), I've included a plot summary in the .rar archive.
New Vegas Bounties II is the sequel the popular New Vegas Bounties I, and picks up immediately after the uncertain ending of the first episode. Without a firm to provide sponsorship, you must strike out as a solo contractor for the NCR. As such, you are no longer obligated to follow a linear questline, but may pursue dozens of bounties in any order.
Your targets will include terrorists, duelists, fiends, traitors, rapists, and more! As in episode I, most of the named adversaries are boss-caliber, and make use of perks, powerful weapons, and countless cronies to thwart your efforts.
Like its predecessor, NVB II contains a healthy dose of profanity and violence. Nonetheless, it includes substantially more dialogue options, as well as choices that should accommodate players at both ends of the karma spectrum.
NVB II includes 1000+ lines of fully-voiced, painstakingly lip-synced dialogue. It includes voice talent from across the world, all volunteered to enhance this project. The full credits are included in the readme (to avoid spoilers), so be sure to thank these talented individuals should you interact with them in the forums.
Encouraged by player feedback, I elected to include more scripted and random encounters in this installment. Both vanilla gameplay choices and decisions in the course of the mod will factor into the timing and details of these encounters. It is entirely possible to play the entire mod without experiencing every encounter (there are over a dozen), so I expect this will enhance replayability.
Your targets will include rogue rangers, fiends, raiders, drug smugglers, cannibals, and pistoleros, to name a few. Your opponents are all designed to be boss-caliber, akin to the fiends in "Three-Card Bounty", and became gradually more difficult as you progress.
At its core, New Vegas Bounties is an action mod; extreme violence and profanity are ubiquitous. In lieu of mind-boggling puzzles or "go collect x or y resource"-type quests, you will be confronted with dangerous opponents who are designed to frustrate and kill you. You will be harried, ambushed, outnumbered, and outgunned. This is the path of a bounty hunter - take it or leave it.
This is my first mod for New Vegas, but I've released multiple action/adventure plugins for TES IV. If you leave comments or suggestions I will always respond, and make every effort to correct bugs or conflicts should they arise.
This adapts several characters and elements from JarheadWriter's mod, Potomac Breaks (FO3), with his permission.
It includes 436 lines of fully-voiced dialogue (as of version 1.2). I will continue to polish the lip-syncing in future updates, as it is a time-consuming process (and I've gained new respect for voiced mods!).
If you love it, hate, or are just indifferent, please post comments. My mods live and die by users who provide feedback!
