OK, to preface: I've played about 40 hours of New Vegas under an old version of Project Nevada, back when the game and the mod were fairly new. Recently I've decided I'd like to go back, start over, and make another run at it. At present I've got Project Nevada, Nevada Skies, and DFB Random Encounters installed, along with all the official DLC except the Courier's Stash.
Anyway, the newer versions of Project Nevada default to a 100% experience rate (same as vanilla). I'm a bit surprised and confused by that, as I've always felt leveling in these games was much too fast and FWE, along with previous versions of PN, seemed to confirmed that these guys felt the same. I can't remember what the old default rate for PN was (50%? 66%?) so one thing I've been trying to do is settle on the "ideal" experience rate. I know a lot of folks around here have played through a modded up New Vegas, so I'd be interested in suggestions/advice on that point.
I also figure that, before I restart again, I may as well take the usual survey of suggested mods. I'm mostly interested in new content. I think the graphics are fine as-is, and since I've only ever gotten about halfway through the main plot I don't want to mess with that either, but some new content to play with while I'm working my way back to where I was would be a welcome thing. I do, of course, want to avoid any conflicts with the current stuff I'm running, though.
So, any advice on either of those two points would be most welcome.
