Update from January 17, 2021:
The gigantic mod The Frontier for Fallout: New Vegas was released on January 15, 2021 and, due to the large number of visitors, brought the Nexusmods site to its knees. As reported by Eurogamer, The Frontier’s site on Nexusmods did not work at times.
By now the problems should be a thing of the past. When we checked, we found the download page functional. At least the temporary server failure remains as an indicator of the great interest in the game. According to the website, over 33,000 players have now downloaded the mod.
The Frontier could easily pass as a separate game or huge DLC. In addition to mobile vehicles, Total Conversion contains a completely new game world, its own story and much more. You will find all the content, the system requirements and the most important additional information in the following original message.
