Also, all the locations which were originally gonna be in Van Buren (Denver, everything in Legion territory) should be put into a game made by Obsidian. NCR canon, Legion is now a dwindling empire, and you can either assist the NCR or Caesar. The map should also include the entire NV map so we can see how that area changed after the NCR officially arrived.
>>256402970 Even though this would entirely defeat the purpose of Fallout, I'd actually be interested to see how that would play out. After all the start of Fallout 3, where you grow up in Vault 101, could easily have been a full game if it was expanded upon.
I want a raider dominated wasteland where they've settled and established a few rough towns. Picture the pitt except there's citizens between the slaves and the raiders, and the raider clans are quarreling with the legion closing in on the area.
>>256405186 From what I understand, it was an atrocity in Fallout's lore. While it had memorable moments and was somewhat enjoyable, I won't even attempt to defend Bethesda's writing. I loved New Vegas all around though.
>>256405563 Aren't the BoS and the Enclave not even supposed to be in the East Coast. And the fact that the previous Fallout games were amount emerging agrarian civilizations in the post apocalypse? Fallout 3 is mostly just destroyed cities and ruins with very little civilization. And I don't even like the Elder Scrolls so no, I can't say I care about Skyrim's lore.
>>256405502 >Chicago >not Seattle Its like you don't want to explore a technology focused city with tons of forest overgrowth and a massive ferry system that allows you to travel to other parts of the pacific northwest.
>>256406118 >Aren't the BoS and the Enclave not even supposed to be in the East Coast. Both are there due to expedition missions >And the fact that the previous Fallout games were amount emerging agrarian civilizations in the post apocalypse? That was the west coast, which never told us if the east close was rebuilding too. Bethesda didn't hurt the lore because East lore wasn't fucking established.
>>256406467 Granted, the latter plays a really large role in the themes of the games. And I wouldn't call Fallout 3's plot anything but an abomination in terms of the story. As I said, I liked the game in some aspects, but I really can't pretend that the story was good.
>>256405563 >Super Mutants existing on the east coast despite being created in a lab by a mad man in Las Angeles >also, they're infertile creatures and the only lab that created them was destroyed hundreds of years before the events of Fallout 3
Bethesda were either too lazy to design new enemies or never even finished the first Fallout. Most likely both.
>>256406976 An urban map can honestly work if you're not restricted to moving around on ground level alone.
Moving around across ruins of tilted buildings, crossing from one to the next with catwalks and makeshift bridges and rarely going down to ground level which is infested with rabid radioactive dogs/deathclaws. Climbing on top of a ruined skyscraper and looking at the ruined skyline at sunset with the occasional bomb crater here and there. Have entire areas serving commited to a species of terrace farming of sorts so that people can grow minimal food without needing to go down to ground level, while trading for the rest in exchange for the useful technology left in the harder-to-reach buildings.
But of course, nothing of this will happen because Bethesda doesn't know how to engine.
>>256407684 I don't mind it being maze-like, and rubble blocking you, so long as there are alternate ways to navigate around, both above ground and under because there is bound to be some rubble which you cant scale
still if Bethesda was dedicated to make a largely urban worldspace im sure they would allow Bethesda-jumping over large rubble piles
still im thinking if you have an entire building fallen on its side and you have to go inside of it, navigating through to get out the other side
or even for skyscrapers, just the idea of one would be really cool, they could be used as like huge multi-level dungeons or lookout points to get your bearings in the city
you could have something like Tenpenny's society except with every single level of the tower being accessible and the single building acting as a whole city
or my ultimute fantasy would be like a glider sort of transport which you could get late game and glide across the map from high up enough
>>256408112 It would be cool, but creative isn't a thing anymore. Maybe some indie developer will get his shit together and come up with something good (and actually finish it). I don't expect anything original from big developers.
>>256408198 Like Fallout 3 and New vegas you mean? Rage engine (rockstar) would do wonders for a Fallout game.
Honestly it'd be wise to keep sewer levels to a minimum. Those never, ever end well, and they're usually dull because there's rarely anything interesting to look at down there. Underground levels would work best if it were about you exploring abandoned research labs and the like, places where you can find lots of lore bits and cool machinery with nice aesthetics.
Biggest problem with such a setting would probably be the plot though, it'd have to have scavenging the ruins as a central point, because there's absolutely no way people would establish a permanent settlement in such a place unless there were high rewards involved. It could have a couple S.T.A.L.K.E.R. overtones while also borrowing from the plot of Fallout Tactics, have a big faction that the player is part of/can affiliate with being a company of professional scavengers paid by the NCR to search for rare technology in the ruins of the city that one day discovers/awakens/activates some sort of ancient pre-war defense system that can do Very Bad Things [maybe even an autonomous computer system like the computer from Fallout Tactics?]. Conflict can come from having opposing factions hearing rumors about the discovery and establishing bases on the ruined city themselves to claim it before the NCR does, maybe even the last stranded Enclave remnants in the Midwest.
>>256406187 >Seattle >Tech focus before the 90s heh what was Seattle even in the 50s? at least Chicago had tons of large recognizable structures and that Art Deco aesthetic only better place would be New York >those endless NY sewer systems for max spoopy >those Alligators >those Chuds >those hidden secrets
would be even cooler if they made them like the Sewers in Vampire Bloodlines so you could access every part of the map through them quickly if you clear out the specific tunnels
>>256408112 post-nuclear stuff, and post-apocalypse stuff in general is about examining society after it has fallen apart. it's a bit off-point to put that in a space where modern society lacks a presence.
Non FO3, there's that guy in Klamath that trains you in unarmed and makes fun of you for believing in wee li'l leprechauns, and I think one of the Blades in the boneyard was scottish, so there's still something in the british isles.
If you read your FO Bible, there were resource wars that dissolved europe into quarelling nation states. Or maybe that's the intro to the first game I'm remembering.
Fallout set in a snowy area could work very well if it also used original designs for most mutants, factions, etc. Unfortunately, Bethesda is too incompetent to pull it off. The shitty movie called The Colony made me want a game like this.
>>256410352 Seattle in the 50s was a place where everyone was a hippy who built planes space needle wasn't built until 1961 but considering the fallout MMO included the space needle in concept art, i think they can let that slide
>>256411083 >>256411646 >it won't be bad if they don't make it bad no shit I would love an actually good metro system, but F3's system is piss poor. It's all copypasted, uninteresting and repetitive. The trademark of Bethesda dungeons.
See, that's lazy writing. They just thought, "oh, we need good guys and bad guys, might as well use the most powerful good guys that we can that aren't tied to a geographical location, and the most powerful bad guys we can if we just say they "made an expedition" over thousands of miles of irradiated shit."
In a world closer to sensible, there would be other factions already coming into power there, rather than a bunch of dicks with their thumbs up their asses sitting in a town made out a boat or a town made out of some planes. There are no "bigger picture" connections between the towns in FO3. In FO2, every town had some way that they related to the bigger picture of the world, some sort of basic little economy. FO3 towns are an npc gallery where you get to listen to a dozen faces talk at you in the same 5 voices.
>>256413209 I haven't looked into Wasteland 2 at all, just waiting for it to come out complete, takes a lot of self control.
I'm sure not many here will concur with me, but I'm actually ok with Fallout becoming a FPS (maybe not following the original saga, but as a spin off), the real problem is how bethesda handle it, the implementation is poor.
>>256402290 I think Fallout 4 should add a little bit of horror to it. I feel like Fallout 3 did pretty alright with some things being pretty unnerving, but New Vegas didn't have anything like that, except for maybe invisible nightstalkers. But I'm talking some scary shit that makes you panic and start shooting bullets fucking everywhere.
>>256405228 >Stalker game in America But that would be fine, Roadside Picnic took place in UK. Why not make a STALKER game in some other slav country, like Croatia? Steep cliffs, a bit of hot stuff, slavs and radiation? Count me the fuck in.
>>256414280 Fallout deals with a lot of things American considers to be cultural hallmarks: westward expansion, settling hard terrain, man against nature, y'know, real cowboy shit. It also juxtaposes the harsh reality of that sort of world with the ruins of the commercialized, militaristic world that imagined it in it's romanticized light. Basically, it's the subversion of the american romance of the nuclear family (the vaults being semi-authoritarian hells, the subversions of mid-century commercial art), the strength of the american military (nuclear war with the soviet and chinese powers), and america's origin in expansion(the hell that is the wastes, and the small, grit-and-gristle settlements found throughout).
Of course, these themes may be translatable to other locales, but these games are developed by americans, and whenever they had to port them they stopped letting people shoot kids.
>>256407684 after having seen pic related years ago. I've always thought that exploring a huge skycraper filled city in a frozen wasteland would be fucking incredible. I'm surprised I was able to find the picture so easily. Searching for it reminded me of how much awesome shit people make with lego
>>256402290 After being in the middle of that entire The survivor 2033 or whatever year it was hoax, Boston's actually become a favorite for me. Plenty of history to work off of, centers of science and culture, and of course it would have been a main target in the great war so plenty of radiation and mutants to hunt.
