    I had the same problem. I assume that you want to Hawthorne first, before meeting the bikers. If so, you just have to enter the very first area of Hawthorne again. Then, you should see the message in your pip boy.

    The message can only be received on the card from the casino (old town) in Hawthorne.

    @Foxx I think Uros wanted to say "What a pity". It means that he is sad that no one is working on Nevada, am I right @Uros?

    I am very very grateful that this mod was made.
    Thank you so much!!!!:)

    However I must admit even as a long time Fallout player I am really struggling... after many hours of game play I am still on level 5 (would be lower if I hadnt used "here and now" perk) + almost every quest I get I am not skilled enough for.

    Any hints how at last to do the early quest for the warehouse stuff?
    I spoke to everyone in VC it seems and then went out to the wasteland.
    I know there is a walkthrough on youtube but i am concerned it will be too many spoilers if i watch it through until I get my hint.

    I don't know if it's possible to do it early. I finally completed it just before heading to last location. Rewards also point to the end game quest (very good armour or energy weapon or late- game melee and unarmed weapons).

    There is mostly one part per major settlement. If you want here are locations
    New Reno Town Hall- Thompson's bunker
    New Reno shelter- part of main quest, entrance located in park behind Stryker's base
    Winds of War Vault- on road from New Reno to Las Vegas, you can find out about the Vault by hacking their database or asking around about their history and then bribing the quartermaster to show you the entrance
    Las Vegas- inside Hoover Dam, one of technicians will sell you a part for couple hundred bucks or several pizzas
    Salt Lake City- ruined district with dogs has two shelters, one of them has safe with some valuables, the other one has the part [\Spoiler]

    Ok thanks!! I wont open the spoiler then.... I thought since it was in Vault City maybe I am supposed to do it early.

    Has anyone else struggled with leveling up? Only recently did I even get a leather jacket and finally a hunting rifle ( which was luck +pluck, raiders fighting hunters and the hunter had worn down one raider and i joined in hoping to plunder the raider for his rifle while the battle was still ongoing.

    I got desperate enough trying to get the F12SE editor to work to make it a bit less painful in the early game but I was unable to get it to work.

    Nevada is skill points dependant unlike any Fallout. For example Skilled trait is viable now. Gifted has pretty rough trade off.
    For early levels I suggest using a lot of First Aid and Doctor Skill on yourself to gain xp.
    Here and Now is such a waste of perk...

    I usually never use here and now but was just so desperate for skills.

    I am gifted Fast shot, Tagged small guns , big guns, lockpick.. I had gone back to a build more optimized for nevada but then went back to my original which is optimized for the decisive mid game in FO2.
    Maybe I should restart with Tagged; small guns, Doctor, lockpick.. Fast Shot and then something other than gifted... (but gifted is so powerful later in the game when you are swimming in experience points and i here there is no maximum level in FO Nevada..) ... due to my low skills I had to fear even rats for much of the game. Once got killed by 2 rats at level 3..

    I found out that Nevada plays much different than other Fallouts. Before my first playthrough I've read somewhere that it uses skills that were underused in other Fallouts. My first playthrough I've tagged Repair, Science and Speech. Got Gifted and Good Natured. While combat encounters early in game were really hard, once I got to New Reno I had a lot of opportunities. You get access to workbench, few stocked shops (including a guy with crafting supplies), there are some easy errands that you can do in the city (I've leveled from level 3 almost up to 6). You can also go work for Big Louis once you get your combat skills and equipment.

    I actually like that FO Nev uses underutilized skills in a meaningful way... the vanilla FO2 had just a small handful of skills that were actually useful.
    I would have built my chracter very different ..
    many quests I think are not even offered to me since i dont pass askillcheck.. and the oens that are I often fail a skillcheck needed at a juncture..

    Also I cannot accept many battles to level up since my ammo supply is chronically low. So I had to invest precious skill points into Melee (which are now mostly wasted since I am at a stage were I have firearms but sometimes I join battle with rats just for the XP and use a spear to save the ammo.)

    Anyone know of a way to make a character or savegame editor that works on FO Nevada? I want to change my tagskills as a minimum.

    You can also plant it on cue ball and pay a handyman from railway station to repair it or pay janitor to plant them (boy on second floor).

    I'd try the desk in Bertolini's office, at least that's where I put it last time if I remember correctly.

    Is it safe to deposit items in the dresser of the Opal mine and get then pick them up later?
    They add weight and I do not have the skill to use that heavy gun and its ammo yet.

    Thank you, but how to plant to his desk? If i try to do anything in his desk they attack immediately. Can't convince the boy either, maybe my speech skill too low for this

    Every bigger city (New Reno is the closest) has a storage safe that you can pick lock if your Perception isn't lower than 5. Can't say anything about dresser as I haven't used other containers for storage.

    Most NPCs (including Bertollini and his goons) have routines. At night Bertollini goes to his bedroom. Guard in his office has a nap (you can't fail Sneak check against him). You can sneak by guys in room with billard table by using the fuse box by staircase (can't remember if you need Repair). Just loot his desk and leave bug inside.

    I think i am close to have hexausted the content of New reno and the surrounding areas.
    The npc tell me that Las Vegas and Salt City are the other big cities, but they don't tell me which city i should go next.
    Which of those two makes the most sense storywise or difficultywise ? Does it actually matter ?

    Salt Lake is the acces to endgame so at least in theory should be done last Hovever it's a part of non linearity of the gameplay that visiting towns is not a sequence and can be done in any way
