Whether they're in Commonwealth, Mojave or the Capital Wasteland, you're invited to post pics or write about homes of your characters.

Today I'll show you Rattler's hideout in the Capital Wasteland, made by me.

__

The Den of the Rattlesnake

A distance west of Germantown Police HQ and east of Paradise Falls, on one of many hills in that area, there's a dilapidated shack partly built into a rock towering above it. It served as hideout for some junkies but a notorious slaver from Paradise Falls recently killed them, placed their remains on display and moved in. Now nobody dares to approach the shack anymore. indifferent.gif

View from below

Screenies taken at night make things more difficult to see but they're better for overall mood in this case. To the right there's a campfire, left of it there's a half-buried corpse of one of the junkies, lying right below wooden stairs leading to the shack. One junkie has been stuck on a pole to the left, one has been hooked right on the main door, and another one is hanging to the right of the entrance.

View from the other side

There's pile of junk to the right of the shack, along with a broken cabinet and some empty barrels. Paradise Falls can be seen in the background

Going up the stairs

right into

the Den of the Rattlesnake,

that can only be unlocked with the specific key.

Welcome!

That's what we see when stepping in. Looks quite scruffy and messy, doesn't it? There's a skeleton greeting us while eternally burning in the barrel with one of the junkies hanging on a chain right behind him. Planks on the left make way to "the loft". Obviously the one who lives there, likes cigarettes, jet and whiskey.

View from the other side

Specifically, from the burning gentleman's perspective. There's a table next to the door with one chair behind it, and one on the top of it. There's a broken refrigerator on the other side of the door and a mutilated arm of one of the junkies next to the lawn chair.

Table full of flesh,

and human at that.

They're hard to spot but there are empty syringes all over the shack, implying the owner's addiction to Med-X. As more time passes, the shack will be even more messy, there'll be cigarette butts, empty packs and cartons and even more empty bottles tossed all over the place.

Bathroom of sort

located under the planks.

View from "the loft"

Not much is up there, only one dirty mattress and a view of another junkie.

Ssskull

Which was drawn by the new landlord.

Time to meet him

Wow, Chez Rattler is as gruesome as the snake himself. Well thought through and put together. Good to know where he lives so we can avoid it and alert the bounty hunters. biggrin.gif The last shot is a great one of the Rattler with his red bandana and pipsnake on his forearm.

Well... I think it's safe to say that Rattler's home will never be featured in Better Homes & Gardens magazine. :lol; I think he needs some Feng Shui assistance too!

Just kidding. Knowing Rattler, this is a perfect place for him. I want this home in my game when I finally get my first character rolling. Not that my character will live there; it'll just be this place nobody goes, because of all the rumors surrounding it.

Is that a chair on top of a table I see in that final pic? Tsk tsk...

That is a sweet den that suits our lovable Rattlesnake! Well, maybe not lovable, just misunderstood, or from a neglected childhood, or something... laugh.gif

It really suits him. The creepy atmosphere and drifting rays of light through those shack walls are just perfect. I miss that look that FO3 achieved. I love that eternally burning skeleton. That is epic!

I will post some pics from the Commonwealth next week.

I like this thread. Makes it easy for my character to find places with even more loot to sell and become... eh.. Ne´er mind, folks... biggrin.gif


I have a few pics from my character´s Megaton home but it´s nothing special. Lots of teddy bears on the bed, that´s about it. Apart from various stuff in containers but you don´t see that on the pics anyway. Oh, and I have the nostalgic 50´s decoration.

Better not unless you want the bounty hunters to get killed. wink.gif

I'll make sure to surround that place with lots of powerful mines before I send the mod to you, in case any of yours decide to approach the shack nonetheless. evillol.gif

Joke aside, Rattler's plan in the near future is to place lots of mines in a neat circle around the shack.

I think Loviatar might not find it so bad.

I chuckled at "misunderstood". laugh.gif Yeah, there must be something he wants to tell us through all those killings but his deeds fall on deaf ears... biggrin.gif

I don't believe you until I've seen some pics. tongue.gif And TBH, I already forgot how the 50s decoration looks like.

Loivatar has a Mad Scientist Lair just outside of Megaton

Tinkering at the workbench

Blogging on MadScience.com

Leaning back on the databanks

This experiment didn't work out too well...

Taking notes

The entrance to the lair is just a little behind Lovaitar, up the hill

Loviatar's pad looks perfect for her. goodjob.gif

I can imagine the notes she was taking: 'Eating the subject's arm resulted in strenuous protests. Severing his head stopped the vocalizations. . . . ' ohmy.gif

Nice pad!

I had visions of Loviatar living with Mutant gore bags and bodies hanging upside down from hooks. laugh.gif

Love the computer and notes! She is obviously trying to cultivate a further side to her personality- next perhaps dinner with some fava beans and a nice chianti. laugh.gif

Be careful with that lunchbox...ahh...bottlecap mine.

Loviatar had to destroy an entire town so she could build a home for herself. laugh.gif

Her lair is bloody-scientific. I like her naval cot, it fits in better than a proper bed.

What a huge difference between Loviatar's mad scientist's lair, and Rattler's hole in the ground. In each case though, their home suits them, totally.

I'm ready for Winter Wolf's home, if his lady friend has one, that is.

Cho doesn't really have a home. And Marge N. Overra had the regular Megaton home, nothing really exciting there.

Thanks Renee!

Chalice has several homes that she uses.

The Settlement at Sanctuary-

The flag is planted!

Power is needed to run everything

It rises into the sky

Garage and workstation

Everyone needs a change of pace

A glance backwards

Enclave flag just to annoy the Brotherhood!

Gym

At Far Harbor Chalice has a nice little beach cottage (using a house mod)-

Outside view

Fishtank!

Lounge Room

An old friend is above the desk

Kitchen

After a day killing Mutants it is time to clean up!

Bedroom

You can have over 30 settlements in the game as well as a large number of house mods. I use these two as my main base with several others in the pipe works.

Wolf, both those places look great!

The Sanctuary one almost looks like some of mirocu's home projects that went a mite astray. biggrin.gif Love the anime posters in the gym.

The Far Harbor cottage looks wonderfully cozy!

Uh oh, looks like The South's Gonna Do It Again in Sanctuary!

Sanctuary may look a little dilapidated, but it sure is well defended!

Neat that you can build a basketball court.

Black Flag!

The anime posters must be from a mod! laugh.gif But the W girl is missing?

The fish tank is cool! But it looks like its about to burst! ohmy.gif

It's ED-E! And I even note a bobblehead.

I love how the sponge even floats in the tub water.

The Mr. House and Vera Keyes posters are some cool NV swag.

Both of Chalice's homes look great, I'm partial to the cottage myself, just because well I like cottages more. tongue.gif

Sanctuary home seems really big, and even it comes with its own garage - how some about car or motorcycle mod? wink.gif

Hey, there's a dog too in the Garage and Workstation pic.

I love the Enclave flag to annoy the Brotherhood. laugh.gif

So the cottage is government property? bigsmile.gif

A fisthank! How cool is that. I don't see any radfish, though.

There's another pic to annoy the Brotherhood if they ever come inside the house.

Is that House's pic on the wall in the last shot?

Acadian- Yes, it does look like Mirocu's house-building project™ has blown up the building. laugh.gif The only thing missing is bottlecaps and teddy bears everywhere.

SubRosa- There are so many items in the workshop that I have not even touched the surface. I am only using a simple turrent defense. Heaps of people have trap door floors, spikes and poles that impale, laser weapons, pop-up items, spinning items that explode, everything!

Ahh yes, the W girl. Thanks, I have just fixed that. She was downstairs talking to another poster. laugh.gif I have just put her back in her rightful place. bigsmile.gif Yes, it is a mod!

Lopov- There are heaps of vehicle and motorcycle mods out there. Most only use the fast travel system but I have seen one that combines elements of the Automatron DLC into it. The modder put a chair ontop of a robot frame and you can sit on it and race around Boston. Looks great but the author said the roads were too bumpy and resulted in too many collisions. laugh.gif

Yes, House gets a big tip of the hat in that mod!

The Far Harbor house is great if you want to explore the south of the map. I have just found another cool mod that suits the top of the map. The house might be too similar to my south one which is my only complaint. kvleft.gif

Check it out!

Sorry about the casino music...Lol.

Wow, WW. Christ, some of those pics look like old-fashioned photographs, rather than computer art or comic-bookish art.

I love the gym. So I take it she lives in a settlement? Meaning you were able to build all of that, or scavenge it? That looks fun. It's so weird how settlements have polarized the Fallout community so much.

Her Far Harbor house is sooo cute.....

Renee- Thanks! Yes, Chalice lives in the Sanctuary settlement, which is the same area that your character starts the game at. The place looks very much run-down from the pristine place we see in the introduction. Most of the buildings can be scrapped for things like steel and wood and you can build your own grand structure in its place. Of course you can just leave it like that and drop down a bed and some storage and just play the game instead!

Settlements are hit and miss for me. Some things I like, others not so much. Each settlement is a part of the same game cell and has no loading, so there must be a limitation there. House mods can still be downloaded and they work like old Beth games by loading to a separate cell.

I just wish Beth gave me more story DLC and not more stupid settlement add-ons.


**

One project I am toying with is building a house based on the Megaton floor plan.

It is nice and simple and makes me long for the brilliant FO3 again.

Unfortunately I do not have access to workbenches or chemistry stations but will add them to the house once I get level 2 perk of Local Leader. Should be in a few more level ups.

Another strange thing is that I cannot find a refrigerator in the settlement building. I know that some things are locked off until you find the skill magazines, otherwise not sure.

This is a bare bones WIP.

Welcome to Megaton

View from the door

Left hand side

I want my refrigerator!

View from balcony

Nuka machine

Bedroom

Backroom

Top View

I will add the extra items when I can and drop more personal items to give it a more lived-in look.

Like you, I think a simple, almost industrial, look is pretty neat. Basically, a warehouse with a loft. Plenty of room and not broken up into too many rooms. Nice. smile.gif

And as an Aussie, I'm sure you know the beautiful symphony that rain can play on a tin roof. happy.gif
