Enclave war room map should be described. What about southwest and East Coast?--dotz 20:30, 17 January 2008 (UTC)

Awww, no world map for F3 yet? NMA has a decent one here: http://www.nma-fallout.com/content.php?page=fo3-maps Dafpants 05:06, 10 November 2008 (UTC)

WtF Happened to southamerica in Fallout? April 23 2009

I don't think thats been answered. Although i personaly assumed that the nuclear war was a world wide thing, and that no country got through it intact. Purely because if any of them did then realisticly depending on whether they were allied or not they'd either help or invade the ones who didn't. I don't know though, i've only played Fallout 3. Although i do plan on playing Fallout 2 at some point becuase from what i've seen of it, it looks incredible.--Greig91 01:27, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

(Same guy who asked) nope, the only 2 countryçies that actually sent the bombs to each other were China and USA Mayy 2009

  • (Same guy, again) got it all wrong, it seems. The nuclear war affected only China and USA, but the fallout, well, that was much more worldwide, taking straight from the Vault-dweller survival guide: "In the megaton range, the fireball rises so high that it enters the stratosphere. The stratosphere is dry, and no weather processes exist there to bring fallout down quickly. Small fallout particles will descend over a period of months or years. Such long-delayed fallout has lost most of its hazard by the time it comes down, and will be distributed on a global scale. As yields increase above 100kT, progressively more and more of the total fallout is injected into the stratosphere.", and if we take megaton (Town) as a base for the all bombs, it seems they got thousands of Megaton range bombs. The whole frigging world got itself Effed up.
The nuclear war didn't affect just China and USA. It affected the whole world, not just the fallout. All able countries launched their nukes at each other. See: Fallout world FAQ. Ausir 12:13, 17 June 2009 (UTC)
(Same guy, once again) Well, I tend to believe my country didn't got into a war, we are the friggin southamerica's Switzerland. BtW: Did Switzerland get into this war? BtW2: can we swear in discussions? the game does often enough, doubt anyone that has played would feel offended =/


I'm sorry but those maps are just wrong. The Bone Yard, for example, is the ruins of L.A. Why does it appear to be located in Mexico? Why are the members of the NORTH CALIFONA Repulic located in western Nevada? Ect ect. Its a nice attempt but most of the areas covered in both Fallout 1 and 2 should be alot closer togather. The map size was hundreds of miles, not thousands.

Huh? The locations on the maps are based on real-world locations, even if the world maps in the game are not 100% accurate. Fallout 1 and 2 covered all of California and parts of the neighbouring states, just like Daesch's map. Ausir 09:49, 4 May 2009 (UTC)

I think you have Los confused for the Boneyard They're two completely different locations, hence why Los is in Mexico Also, Reno is in Western Nevada, seeing as some of the cities are East of that we can only assume those are in Nevada as well A good references are to use real life Redding real life San Fran and Real life Reno, and you'll see that it actually makes pretty good sense.

Well I know one thing for sure, if "Ronto" is suppose to be Toronto, then its off by about 200km and on the shores of the wrong lake. Torront is on the shores of Lake Ontario, not Lake Huron. 02:30, June 5, 2010 (UTC)

Hey could someone update the maps and add Ronto and Point Lookout? Maybe even Adam's Air Force base, and the Commonwealth too? Oh, and New Vegas is still labeled as 'Las' Vegas. SAmaster01 22:30, July 23, 2010 (UTC)

What happened to Australia?

^ ^, coz its not like we are enemies of China or USA and we don't even have any nuclear weapons, reactors or anything, reckon we lived?

You got hit by severe nuclear fallout. http://images3.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/thumb/4/4a/Naglowaa_se.gif/11px-Naglowaa_se.gif Tagaziel (call!) 11:49, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
In our world you don't. But in Fallout's alternate timeline you might have had nuclear weapons and enemies who also did. Ausir(talk) 12:08, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
The Australians were all eaten by horned kangaroos ;) -- Porter21 (talk) 12:13, December 15, 2009 (UTC)
Well you're considered a western power and, ideologically at least, you're aligned with the Euro-American nations. It's altogether probable that China or her allies would've lobbed a few spare nukes in your general direction, not out of any malice per se' more sort of dotting the i's and crossing the t's sort of thing.
You do (in our world) have nuclear powered subs and you have the facilities to dock, resupply and repair the US carrier fleets along with their support groups. So yeah, you're a viable target or at least your larger harbours are.
Further inland it would probably slowly devolve into a Mad Max type scenario. No direct hits but the communities would suffer the knock-on effects when the larger (coastal) cities weren't able to resupply and support them.Draxenato 19:02, December 17, 2009 (UTC)

1950's Culture Worldwide?

We know that America was in a typical 50's style world of tommorow, but what about other countries? I think they might have been to some degree influenced by the U.S. but did they actually have a similar look ( archiatecture, cars,clothes,etc.) or could they have been more 21st century as far as the look of things? Just curious.

Well, the idea is that the whole world looks like 1950s America imagined it would. For example, China is a rabidly red totalitarian country bent on world domination and fond of brainwashing-type propaganda.--Gothemasticator 20:58, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

I think it would be cool if Great Britain developed into a sort of steampunk Victorian England, where vault boy wears a top hat and has a handlebar moustache

A British Steampunk Fallout would be a fun change! in the first game, the Canadian soldier looked like he was wearing combat armour similar to the US. This probably means that if not the entire world, countries near the US are like the American 1950's.

We may never know. Unfortunately Fallout is limited to one country so far and it's not likely they will set the game anywhere else. Canada is the other choice I could see. The whole retro futuristic 1950's thing is cool and all but I would like to see a more "modern day" post apocalyptic world. When I play Fallout 3 I feel no connection to the game's world despite living close to DC. 10-22-2010.

I know how ya feel bro! :) Show me a COCA COLA machine! Let me see a burnt Dodge Caliber! The robots, energy weapons, vaults, FEV, Vertibirds and power armor could come from a secret corporation project and the secret projects from the military, so the tech could still be explained. I want to play and be able to feel "this is MY world if it got destroyed". Not some retro future where I don't even know if I would exist. I agree the retro stuff gives Fallout it's uniqueness, but I just want to feel that this is here and not a place that could just as easily be switched out for some alternate scifi setting(not earth) like in Gears of War.

Um... Absolutely not! That would not only completely destroy and rape the essence of Fallout, but it would simply devolve into another boring, generic post-apocalyptic game among the thousands of others out there. Plus, they already tried that with the tactics games, not only did they fail miserably, but the majority of the fanbase absolutely HATED them... --GaussRifle 19:48, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Pre-Apocalyptic Steampunk seems to be a highly arbitrary inclusion into Fallout. British culture in the 1950s was heavily American influenced anyways, I think an exploration of Fallout based in the UK should look to the culture of the 1960s: James Bond, Dr. Who, The Prisoner, Fireball XL5, The Avengers, etc. Less optimistic than the American world of tomorrow and more intrigue/paranoia based.--OvaltinePatrol 20:15, December 31, 2010 (UTC)

Giant Green Spot

The giant Spot which can be seen in Mothership Zeta, what does it mean? a giant radioactiv lake? or only a too heavy lightning effect?

My guess is it's probably either a large radioactive fallout cloud or just a regular forest. Kastera1000 07:33, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
Really? for a regular forest it glows really poisen-like green :P
Have you ever seen an aerial view of a rainforest in southeastern Asia. It bears striking resemblance to the giant green spot you can view on Mothership Zeta. Kastera1000 19:53, January 2, 2011 (UTC)
The three simultaneous hurricanes in the same region in that view of earth seem to bare witness to the effects the Great War had on weather. FinalWish 05:07, February 26, 2011 (UTC)

East Coast Map

This map of the east coast is worng. Great Lants is in georgia but in the picture, it's in pennsylvania/ New Jersey.

Actually we don't know where it is. But Atlantic City makes the most sense as it's both on the shores of the ocean and close to the Capital Wasteland, and Atlanta Georgia isn't either of those.XXAntibodyXx 06:05, March 16, 2011 (UTC)

Yeah, the map is old though. Does the user who made it still stay active on the Vault? We can get it changed. --NuclearAnamoly 01:15, October 1, 2011 (UTC)

USSR/China Allies?

Where is the proof that the Soviet Union was bombed for being Chinese Allies? Both in real life and in the fallout storyline The Soviets and Chinese were two communist entities that disliked and distrusted each other, they were not allies and the Soviets were actually friendly with America in the fallout Canon --Kastrenzo 10:19, April 11, 2011 (UTC) -I don't know about the USSR being friendly with the US. We know that they had a diplomat in the US at the time of the Great War, but so did China. America hated COMMUNISM, not just China, China was just the bigger threat, militarily and ecnomically at the time. I wouldn't be suprised however if the United States did lump China and Soviet Russia together, in actual maps used by real schools in the 1950's had the U.S., Europe, and then the 'RED MENACE' (U.S.S.R. and China lumped together.). A modern example would be how Americans lump together all the muslim/middle eastern countries together, and label them as terrorist. I think the U.S.S.R. would have treated eachother like they did in real life. Two countries that happen to be neighbors and communist. I mean, it's not the like the United States is that buddy-buddy with say Mexico, or in the Fallout world, Canada. -SAmaster01

According to the old Sierra Army Depot GNN holodisk, (or M.A.R.Go.T, I don't remember) the last Chinese ambassador got run right out of the country. The Soviets got places in Vaults and made trade deals with public contractors like the construction teams at Seirra Madre. Nitty Tok. 23:50, April 12, 2011 (UTC)
SAmaster, your logic betrays a distinct lack of understanding of history or politics for that matter. America vilified China not because it hated communism, but because it was their political and economical rival. The Soviet Union wasn't; in fact, they apparently had a very strong military alliance, evidenced by the AK-112 military rifles widely used in America. http://images1.wikia.nocookie.net/fallout/images/0/08/Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 15:13, April 13, 2011 (UTC)

Coast-to-coast Map

Coast To Coast Map.jpg

I decided to take some of my free time, and fuse both coasts maps, but before posting it on the page, i wanted to know if it's ok. Raf-Hagane 01:09, July 19, 2011 (UTC)

It's too small, and it doesn't stretch, I cannot read any of the locations. But given the placement, it LOOKS pretty accurate based on the File:Fallout_Governments.png page. Could you repost a larger image? -- 00:42, July 20, 2011 (UTC)Boldt Corderman

There should probably be some sort of update to the maps, at least regarding the East Coast, since there have been 4 new regions (Nuka-World, large expansions of the Commonwealth, Far Harbor, and all of West Virginia/the Appalachian Territories) added to the continent in the time since anyone has posted a map, going by the last post made here.
