Fallout New Vegas mod makes interstellar rockets occasionally fly over the Mojave

A rocket flying overhead in Fallout New Vegas.

While a lot of Fallout 4 mods are designed to bring beloved features and characters from previous games in the series to the Commonwealth, including everyone’s favourite clone and ED-E, sometimes you can’t beat delving back into Fallout 3 or New Vegas for real.

After all, while the Fallout 4 New Vegas modding project looks to be coming along brilliantly, it hasn’t quite arrived in full yet.

However, if you fancy another trip through the Mojave and don’t think fighting off a crippling addiction to pork and beans or an alien invasion can spice things up without running your immersion, a new mod is offering an interesting solution to your conundrum.

Ever wonder where The Bright Brotherhood got to on their great journey?

The mod in question is called ‘Come fly with me’ and is the work of prolific modder Ashens2014, who has lots of experience bringing new life to New Vegas, having previously returned Camp McCarran’s cargo planes to the sky and even made a car do hot laps of the old oval racetrack at Ivanpah Dry Lake.

This time, they’ve decided to use their experience with animations to add some extra details to the quest ‘Come Fly With Me’, which sees the courier tasked with helping or hindering the interstellar dreams of a faction of ghouls residing near Novac.

Should you choose not to convince Chris Haversam to sabotage their craft, these ghouls jet off in rockets at the quest’s conclusion, disappearing from the game as they head off in pursuit of a new home.

On the other hand, if you’re not a fan of rockets or are only interested in animated vehicles that you can take a ride on yourself, you could also check out another of Ashens2014’s recent mods, ‘Animated Ridable Tugboat’, which gives you the chance to take a ferry across Lake Mead.

Regardless of whether your courier’s just walked into someone because they’ve got their eyes on the sky looking out for rockets, make sure to follow us for more updates on interesting mods like this one for Fallout, Skyrim and Elden Ring.
