Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The ZAX Mainframe is the 5th sub-level of the Boulder Dome. Robobrain patrol these halls for intruders (high security level). The robobrains are programmed to stop the PC or anyone else from contaminating either the ZAX supercomputer, ot its databanks. This means they will stop the PC if they are irradiated.


The layout description is in accordance with the lettered picture to the right:

  • A: Exit/Elevator - Leads back up to the Dome Tunnels
  • B: ZAX AI - Where the PC goes if they want to have a personal converstaion with ZAX
  • C: Emergency Generator - needs to be repaired to do any major work on ZAX or the reactor (not functionional)
  • D - R: Mainframe Databanks - long blocks/rows of databanks, most are full to capactity; guarded by robobrains.


ZAX Mainframe did not appear nor was mentioned in any published games, but was going to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
