I recently played through this mod and afterwards fallout 1.5 resurrection. I much preferred nevada in terms of writing, quest progression, and realism. If you want power armour be prepared to work for it, which is how I would image such a valuable resource to be treated. Quests may require you to think outside the box, or travel to other areas but the solutions are logical and satisfying to immersion freaks like myself. One piece of advice for the author, make it so that the leader of the bikers and the wind of war comment on your nice newly reconditioned set of power armour (which was a bastard to construct!) you know, cuz immersion. And work on some of the dialogue in new reno (I'd be happy to help if you like).
Oh and there's a unique upgradable vehicle - nice touch
