That would depend on the mod. Some still don't work well with NMM. I have had more luck with installing mods through FOMM.

Get the FOMM that lets you switch between FO3 and FONV.

Roniello,they can both switch. I would choose NMM just for that "download to manager" button on the Nexus

True but FOMM does it better for FO3/NV

The past couple of times I used NMM for managing FONV, it borked my game and I had to reinstall it, piece by piece. Same with Oblivion, but for some reason not Skyrim.

NMM was made with Skyrim in mind. It has yet to give me an issue with Fallout 3 or New Vegas. NMM isn't compatible with OBMM (mainly because that was just a ****ty program), don't even try it with Morrowind, I recommend manual installs for that on, unless the mod comes with an installer, like Morrowind Overhaul.

I think this is bugged or something as it downloads are compatibility patches and not the actual mod.

I just manually install mods (it's really easy, most of the time) and then manage their order in NMM.

Never have any conflicts or problems.

NMM works fine with New Vegas. It has a better interface and it uses the BOSS sorter now too.
