You can force VSync off in Fallout: New Vegas by editing a command variable found in the Fallout_default.ini file in the Program Files (x86)Steamsteamappscommonfallout new vegas directory. Make a backup copy of this file first, then open it with a text editor like Windows Notepad, and alter the iPresentInterval=1 variable to iPresentInterval=0 and save the change. This will forcibly disable VSync in the game.
Fallout: New Vegas enables mouse acceleration in all 2D interfaces, such as when viewing game menus or in the Pip-Boy 3000 screens. This acceleration results in the mouse being much less predictable and more difficult to control when using these interfaces. To disable mouse acceleration you will need to go to the Fallout_default.ini file found in your Program Files (x86)Steamsteamappscommonfallout new vegas directory. First make a backup copy of the file, then open the file with a text editor, find the [Controls] section, and immediately after the last entry in that section, add the following lines exactly as shown:
Since the Fallout: New Vegas game engine is largely the same as that used for Fallout 3, see the Advanced Tweaking section of the Fallout 3 Tweak Guide for full details of a range of .ini variables and console commands which you can utilize to further customize and optimize Fallout: New Vegas. Just remember that in Fallout: New Vegas, .ini changes must be made in the Fallout_default.ini file found under the Program Files (x86)Steamsteamappscommonfallout new vegas directory.
In the 1950s the United States conducted scores of atmospheric nuclear tests at the Nevada Test Site. This article studies the effects of radioactive fallout from nuclear tests on agriculture in regions hundreds of miles from the NTS. While research has shown that this radioactive material posed a health risk near the NTS, little is known about the direct economic effects nuclear testing may have had. I find that fallout from nuclear tests adversely affected U.S. agricultural production, and this result suggests that nuclear testing had a much broader economic and environmental impact than previously thought.
