    There was one in Orlando that was supposed to be worse then this one in Tally, but it was tore down. Guess what was built ontop? A fucking playground...*twitches*

    I wish I could go back to Sunnyland before I shipped, but its such a long drive.

    Scariest place ever! Ajes!

    Mohrg :twisted:

    The place is an abandoned heating plant that used coal as a fuel. There are pretty big furnaces inside, along with coal chutes and a wrecked crane, not to mention all the water tanks and pipes.

    I live in the outskirts of Warsaw, Poland, so no chance to get a cheapass bus from Florida :P

    The movie "Avalon" was filmed in some abandoned factories in Warsaw, too. The Japanese just couldn't find the appropriate crumbling, rusty heap of wasteland scenery back home ;)

    Yeah, for Fallout 3 it'd be cool if they'd make so many random encounter towns and such, that you could feel like youre actualy exploring ruins.

    Has anyone made a mod for FO2 like that ? That'd be cool.

    Gravedigging this so as to link you to a list where you can find an abandoned city to visit near you.

    The Taiwan park is pretty retrofuturistic. I like the Kowloon Walled City the most, though - we should send the makers of Fallout 3 there for "inspiration" :)

    This is something I thought Fallout 3 actually did well-- abandoned houses found in between cities had stuff to loot, and there was at least one completely abandoned town. In the previous games you could find abandoned houses during battle sequences but there was never anything in them.

    Hidden vaults would be cool. One thing I'm surprised hasn't made it into any games (1, 2 and Tactics) is storm cellars/bunkers. Especially in the midwest you'd expect to find such things.
