Have you ever thought how disappointing it was that the Bison Steve Hotel was just left to crumble into the annals of history? Ever thought that it would be a cool location to rebuild? Well, that’s exactly what this mod does one step at a time!

But it doesn’t stop there! Not only is The New Bison Steve Hotel & Lucky Casino quest a complete makeover of The Bison Steve Hotel, it also includes “Buck’s Place”, a beautiful, high-tec player home with all the cool features we have grown to love.

Bucks Place also comes with it’s own special “Bucks” Bobblehead’s placed all throughout the Mojave for you to hunt for, a very large display room that is perfect for mannequins and displaying your unique weapons and collectibles. You even get your own personal vendor who can also repair your gear for a price and sell you stuff.

Download with confidence! This mod was meticulously error checked and thoroughly cleaned with FNVEdit!!!

To start the quest go to the Vikki and Vance Casino and ask Johnson Nash about The Bison Steve Hotel. Or, simply find “Steve” who is the grandson of “Old Laurie” that Johnson Nash talks about, and is holed up in the Vikki and Vance with the other townsfolk. They’ll be glad to get you on your way.

During your adventure you’ll restore law and order to a town and help an uninspired artist regain his mojo as you battle Fiends, Ghouls and escaped convicts. You’ll even get to trade wits with a cantankerous old bastard along the way. You’ll learn about Texas “Buck” Brunson, the Mojave’s greatest high stakes poker player, and get a little help from his niece “Anna” along the way. You even get to use his beautiful house and display room if you wish to. All in all I feel it’s a pretty fun quest and story!

Each phase of construction will require you to procure the materials and supplies needed to complete that part of the project. You’ll have to acquire items ranging from lighting fixtures for the casino, booths for the Steak House, general supplies such as booze, food and even The Lucky Casino’s custom casino gear! There are over 30 pieces of custom artwork as well.

See the results of your effort unfold as each stage of construction comes to life before your eyes with each new item you secure and quest stage you complete. (Don’t forget to pop into the place and track your progress each time!)

To install:

All new users should download the Version 1_4 FULL zip file and the optional Voice files if you want voiced dialog and follow the instructions below.

NOTE: If you have any previous version up and running and are updating to Version 1_4, you only need to download and extract the Version 1_4 PATCH to your Fallout New Vegas\Data folder. Just overwrite the existing file with the new one. (Again, you will need to download the Voice Files pack if you want to have voiced dialog.)

VOICE FILES INSTALLATION: Install the voice files exactly as any other mod. Just extract the zip file, and copy The New Bison Steve Hotel.esm file AND the Sound folder over into your Data directory and overwrite your existing esm file.

GENERAL INSTALLATION: Download file to directory of choice. Extract directly to Data folder, or unzip in the directory of your choice, examine the structure and copy the files over to the Data folder that you need. You will need The New Bison Steve Hotel.esp as well as the meshes\Bucks & textures\Bucks in the zip, as well as the Sound folder if you want to use the optional voice files.
(I personally like to unzip my stuff to the folder I store all my downloaded mods to, extract it there, and simply paste what I need after I see how it is packed.)

Check the plugin in Data options or Fallout Mod Manager and away you go! (FOMM not required but recommended.)
