"War. War never changes. Since the dawn of human kind, when our ancestors first discovered the killing power of rock and bone, blood has been spilled in the name of everything: from God to justice to simple, psychotic rage. In the year 2077, after millennia of armed conflict, the destructive nature of man could sustain itself no longer. The world was plunged into an abyss of nuclear fire and radiation. But it was not, as some had predicted, the end of the world. Instead, the apocalypse was simply the prologue to another bloody chapter of human history. For man had succeeded in destroying the world - but war, war never changes."

After the Great War, those lucky enough to be alive needed a place to call home. Some found shelter in houses that had survived the bombs, though barely. Others managed to make shelter from leftover pieces and parts they found lying around the Waste. With Raiders, Mutants, and radiation taking its toll on society, some prime real estate has become available.

To get full information on each lot, please see the comments section.

General Information:
  • All homes, with the exception of Big Town, have been built on standard EA lot sizes.
  • The set is a mixture of apartments and single family homes.
  • Homes range from §2,126 unfurnished to §37,569 furnished.
  • All lots have been playtested for functionality and maneuverability.
  • All lots require WA, AMB, LN, and GEN. All were built with patch 8.0.152.012
  • You WILL need the Fix for NPC door by Buzzler
  • These are replicas from houses in Fallout 3. The shape of the exterior and layout of the interior do not always match.
  • All Twinbrook shots were taken where Bayless Memorial Junkyard usually is.

You will also NEED to download the empty flower pot by me, which you will find in the download section of this thread, if you download Tenpenny Tower. It is not used in any of the other lots. It is a basic version of the large barrel, just emptied of the purple flowers that were in it. This does NOT replace the version with the flowers, just gives you the option to have one without them.

I want to note that I did VERY minimal terrain painting. As this is for the apocalypse theme, these lots are not exactly suited for Sunset Valley. As suggested by my dear friend dutch, they might be suited for a run-down version of Twinbrook. Due to their nature, terrain painting will be at the discretion of the individual user. The world I used when building this is Silent Hill by Evincryg at the Exchange.

CFE has been used extensively on these lots. Therefore, I suggest not attempting to add to the walls or move things too much. Furniture IN the houses can be moved around but the exterior items should probably also be left alone if you want to keep the look of the lot intact.

Also, I want to thank dutch_1991, armiel, Morphead, BenCo722, Hysterical Paroxysm, Arisuka, and everyone else from #create who helped and prodded me through this project!

Big Town


This is the place to go once you turn 16 and have to leave Little Lamplight. Only, it's not as great as everyone said it would be. Watch the Waste. Keep track of movement. With all the Mutants coming to drag people off to God knows where and the Raiders attacking for sheer pleasure, you never know when your number may be up.

Big Town houses 6 apartments plus one rec room area where you can check your mail, watch TV, or use a computer.

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 60x40
  • Furnished - §13,103
  • Unfurnished - §2,126

All used CC is listed in the main post. Please see the table for lot specifics.

Complex Breakdown:
  1. Your Apartment
  2. Rec Room


Big Town as seen in Twinbrook:

If you want to add a 60x40 lot and do not already have Inge Jones' lot sizes mod, you can find it here. In my opinion, it is a must have!

Grayditch



The Brandice home was once a center townhome in Grayditch. However, this house is the only building vaguely intact after bombs and an infestation of fire ants. The surrounding homes are crumbling though scavengers and other wasteland wanderers may have left some things hidden in the wreckage. Are you brave enough to find out?

The Grayditch lot is also an apartment. It is a SINGLE person apartment therefore, you will not have any NPC neighbors. I did this so that sims would not be charged for all the rubble and surrounding decor in the two other crumbling apartments.

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 30x20
  • Furnished - §16,034
  • Unfurnished - §6,998

Megaton


Located in Megaton, the city built around the atomic bomb, this house can provide all of your needs. Already spruced up thanks to Moira and her pre-war theme, this house offers you a workbench, lab set, Nuka-Cola machine and even a collector's stand for your bobbleheads. Only, you're not collecting bobbleheads. Anyone can get those. No, you're devoting your collector's stand to relics from participation in "clubs" in the educational system. Who knew there were such things and so many of them. All you learned in school was how to prepare for the G.O.A.T. Robot Butler not included.

Megaton is a single person home. The little shack below your home is, at the moment locked. You can unlock it to expand your house, or you can edit the lot by making it into an apartment if you so choose. I already had 3 apartments and thought that a single home would be nicer (plus, I didn't know where to stick the mail box). I did take the liberty of adding a bathroom and a stove to make the lot a little more sim-friendly. If you want to make the home cheaper, edit it by removing the pre-war theme (rugs, red chairs, coffee tables and tv, workbench, lab set, nuka-cola machine, jukebox, and end tables).

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 25x20
  • Furnished - §37,569
  • Unfurnished - §23,490

All used CC is listed in the main post. Please see the table for lot specifics.

Megaton as seen in Twinbrook:


As a sidenote, I want to address the small square of seemingly white tiles near the roof in front. It is a side effect of CFE and is only visible from certain angles. I could not delete it or recolor it.

Minefield


The Benson house is one of the many family homes located in Minefield, home to the frag mines, hence the name Minefield, and crazy, local sniper Arkansas. Before the Great War, this subdivision was home to the middle class families of America. Now, you're lucky not to be shot down or blown up by the frag mines just by stepping out of your house.

Minefield is a single family home. It is the only home, as is, that is suitable for more than 2 sims. There are 2 rooms (1 between the bathroom and the other behind the kitchen) that can be added upon. This house is safe to edit the walls/furniture, as long as you do not use CFE or mess with the top, roof level including the windows in the dormers.

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 20x20
  • Furnished - §32,228
  • Unfurnished - §24,699

Springvale


Located in Springvale, between the Springvale Elementary School, now home to raiders, and Megaton, home to Colin Moriarty who just might send someone looking for 300 caps that are owed to him. Hopefully you can convince Moriarty's goons that Silver is long gone and can stay under the radar of the raiders.

Springvale is a small ranch and single family home. Since Silver didn't have a pot to piss in, literally, I took the liberty of adding a small outhouse with bath out the back door.

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 20x15
  • Furnished - §15,249
  • Unfurnished - §10,965

Tenpenny Tower



Tenpenny Tower is a luxury hotel recovered and restored by Alistair Tenpenny after the Great War. For the right price, you too can live in this exclusive lap of luxury apartment, apocalypse be damned. Not only will you live in one of the penthouse apartments, you shall also have a cafe, bar, and two shops at your disposal. You shall live out your days alongside only the finest citizens of the Waste. Oh, and no ghouls allowed.

Okay, okay. So the right price isn't really that exorbitant after all. You'll just have to pretend. Also, I DO know that the apartment does not have a kitchen. There is space if you would like to add a small one, however, the cafe downstairs, though "closed", allows you to eat to your heart's content AND share your meals with the other residents. There are a total of 10 apartments: 6 on the second floor and 4 on the 12th. There are also 4 fighting dummies in the back to test your skills for when the mutants come.

Lot Details:
  • Lot Size - 50x50
  • Furnished - §13,362
  • Unfurnished - §2,528

All used CC is listed in the main post. Please see the table for lot specifics.

Main Floor Breakdown:
  1. Entrance Gate
  2. Outdoor Seating Area
  3. Training Corner 1
  4. Training Corner 2
  5. Guard Quarters
  6. Lobby
  7. Cafe Beau Monde
  8. La Boutique Chic
  9. Wellness Center
  10. Restrooms
  11. New Urban Apparel
  12. Federalist Lounge







Tenpenny Tower as seen in Twinbrook:


I did test this lot and, during my testing, the "shops" did not open. However, both the cafe and the bar are able to be used: food, drinks, foosball, jukebox, etc.

The height of this lot was created using extensive CFE. Therefore, there are many places that there can't be windows. The boards are to give the illusion of windows. Do NOT touch them. Also, the bottom floor has windows all around but, from the inside, there are no windows in any of the rooms. Therefore, again, the boards were used on certain rooms to give the illusion of windows. This was intentional.

Wow, I was skeptical at first, but you did a great job making these look just like the actual locations from Fallout 3. This truly inspires me to get that raider armor (raider painspike) I am working on done in time for the challenge! Great job with this mod!

*clasps wildly* Ah, that's amazing! My son wandered past at the right moment and recognized the house I was looking at, it was so funny.

This puts me to shame, I feel bad that I abandoned my Vault project after the ground sank in a weird game glitch. XP

Excellent work. However, I was hoping you found the "sethighestallowedlevel" console command to make Tenpenny Tower, not just using cfe. Also, the white square side-effect from cfe can usually be taken care of with the sledgehammer tool.

Might you be thinking of TS2? I was under the impression this cheat wasn't available in TS3 (alas).

Excellent work Heaven_Sent! You really captured the whole Fallout essence very well in each lot, I instantly recognised them all even without the writeups as I'm sure anyone that has played Fallout would .

My personal favourites are the Big Town and Grayditch lots as they were also a couple of the places I liked in Fallout 3 itself and you've really done such a great job recreating them in a Sims environment, though all these lots are great . Once again, excellent work Heaven_sent!
