    I was thinking of getting back into Fallout New Vegas. but I wanted to put all the bells and whistles on it. And a lot of these mods have come out in the last two years, so I wanna make sure I get it right.

    I was thinking
    Project Nevada (standard)
    Drivable Cars
    Solid Project
    STUN
    Fallout 4 quickloot

    Is there anything else I should get that expands the mechanical aspects of the game? Anything to make the AI smarter or more responsive?

    The balance from JESawyer's mod is pretty much essential for me. It does tend to cause conflicts with other mods that change NPCs so be careful. I use JSawyer Ultimate Edition from the Nexus which is a updated reworking of Sawyer's original mod.

    JSawyer Ultimate is only JSawyer in the name. Not only did the author changed things and values from the original JSawyer mod, it also reverted to vanilla quite a number of other stuff that JSawyer did in his mod. Not to mention all the "additions" that also have nothing to do with the original JSawyer mod.

    It really shouldn't be called JSawyer at all, since it is pretty much a totally different mod that has a couple things similar to the original, but the vast majority really changes the vision of what JSawyer mod was supposed to be.

    I recommend fear and loathing as template, not everything is that good in it. Some mods will not appeal to everyone.

    I forgot to mention this before:
    I recommend Loot Menu over Quick Loot. Loot Menu is more up to date, optimized, and just better built in general.

    I would recommend against Project Nevada. It's mostly garbage. JSawyer, CCO and JSawyer Ultimate are all far better gameplay mods.

    And I would argue with Alpha Promethean, about Project Nevada. The way I see it, it lets you customize your own game to a massive extent. If you want pure survival, low supplies, J.e.Sawyer is a way to go.

    However Project Nevada lets you: set your level cap, amount of skill points you get, damage threshold bleedthrough (from 100% through 20%- vanilla to 1%), loot drop rates, enemy scaling, etc.

    One of the best mods on the nexus, as far as I am aware.
