Realistic Settlements in Fallout 4 by Wasteland Angel



Since Fallout 4 was published, many were focused on just building their settlements. That's fine and up until now, you can find many settlement videos on the interweb. I watched dozens since the launch of Fallout 4, but no matter how big, massive or interesting they are, they usually lacked a dose of realism.

Don't get me wrong, there are many really good settlement videos out there. It's just that most of them are somehow focused on building sizes and stuff, rather than be fully realistic. I'm talking about small details like missing pillars on tall buildings or bridges, or even spamming with duplicated fences, floors, etc. It's fine, this is a game after all.


I finished Fallout 4 couple of times and started focusing on my own settlements in detail. There are few I gave my full devotion. I started from Sanctuary Hills and worked there about a month. Then, to take a break, I switched to Red Rocket Truck Stop. After I finished Red Rocket, I decided to systematically build every settlement slowly, each time a quest sent me to it. We'll be referencing the most complete.

Vault Boy - a Fallout inspired PC Build




Another unique piece of work is done by a Fallout fan, and this time, it is a custom PC build simply called the Vault Boy. Alex, the student from Gold Coast, Australia who describes himself as a gamer who also loves PC building, created a post (build log) on overclock.net, with a detailed procedure of his build, with more than 340 photos in the gallery.

Alex described the purpose of this build as an HTPC / Steam Box rig, but also because he just wanted to do some case modding for the first time. Since Fallout 3 is Alex's all time favorite game, and he just wanted something different, he went with a Fallout theme, mostly with the vault boy.
