    Hello everyone.
    I'm looking for maps of Fallout North America. These are the types I need.
    The strike maps from the war.
    The fallout-affected areas, with concentric patterns, if possible.
    The areas that are still inhabitable by what we would call "normal" life.

    Thanks, Folks! :D

    No I have these. What want would show where the nukes struck and the proceeding fallout damage. Concentric or color-coded to show the intensity.

    i dont think anyone has ever made them.

    i also dont think anyone has ever listed each individual nuclear detonation.

    color coded etc would simply not be possible, since nobody has ever carpet-nuked any continent before, unless you have some heavy duty computing power to simulate this (you'd need the type of computing power weather stations utilize, for best effect, which is - to my knowledge - quite powerful computers :D), but still, you'd need to know where each one - of possibly thousands - of warheads struck - in a fictional scenario.

    This is just a game, it didn't really happen, but you can always draw one yourself. :wink:

    I'm sure the reds bombed the crap out of Mexico. Where is that image from?

    Personally, I thought that was one of the funniest parts. LA had been left unscathed but Vegas had been bombed to oblivion.

    Yes, obviously it's a game. I know that I'm alive. What I'm trying to accomplish is to build a table-top game with something that I can use to determine where bombs DIDN'T strike ((Point Lookout, for example)) so that I can have an idea of what's still around and mostly undamaged, aside from time, wear and tear, and looting.

    This is quite nice. I appreciate it. Thanks you.

    I still need something a bit less overwhelming, so that locations can be read, but this is an excellent start for my needs. :clap: :D

    As this is a fiction, it wouldn't take much more than a basic knowledge of the effects and range of nuclear blasts, knowing where they hit, and the terrain/weather patterns. We can deduce a lot of this from various sources. I don't have the proper knowledge to do this myself, but I know that many fans do. It's not as complex as you seem to think. Look up a map from the TV show "Jericho". They have them for that.

    i was making a point.
    if you are going to guess some weather patterns, then thats your solution: guess.
    download a png basic map of north america, and draw shapes of radiation drift

    voila! you got your maps!

    Guesswork wouldn't be that huge. Jetstreams move at a constant, and airborne radiation would travel them. This example is good. Where did you get it?

    look for diagrams concerning nuclear tests (i googled nuclear test radiation drift)

    we often tend to forget we have thoroughly nuked this world - under legal and controlled circumstances :]

    That's why I think that somewhere out there, there's a canonical FO map with radiation, strikes, and non-infected areas detailed. Even if it's fan-made, based on known info. I wish I could make one, but I'm just not sure where ALL of the info is. I don't need it to be exact, but I'd like to present the FO world, not some bastard version of that I dream up. We have all of the math, geography, and meteorology available, plus the info from nuclear testing. All we'd need to have is the info on where missiles struck according to FO canon.
    Thanks for the info. If I can get enough of it together, this might actually work.
