[[Felines are well alive in Fallout]]
Mst domestic cats are thought to be extinct in Fallout 1 and New Vegas, showing up in 4 first canonically. However, felines are ambush predators and well capable to survival, maybe a bit more than domestic dogs. Who to say that there are no radcats in the wilderness, or more wild cats roaming the wastes? Mutated and not super predators, but near the top of most food chains where humanity or large predators aren't too common.

to:

* '''MIDDLE-EASTERN EUROPE''': Mostly unharmed from direct atomic bombing, but having lots of irradiated forests and rivers. The few survivors are in a medieval-esque time, very few guns, mutated horses (or something filling that role) and arrows used mainly for warfare, castles made from scrap rule over the fiefdoms, while smaller bands rampage around. Most are in constant fight with each other, oblivious on what happens beyond their horizons. If one of them would get an old USSR truck and fuel, they would probably start a raid never saw since Attila the Hun. Some possible examples of cultures emerging: post-apocalyptic huns, hussars with bayonet-rifles, knights in scrap-plate armour.

* Confirmed. Fallout 2 mentions "the Reagan era" in a holotape.

* *The South*, particularly New Orleans: The bayou is infested with horribly mutated gators and just barely settled by mutfruit planter nobility, and fought over by such factions as "The Code" (trying to rebuild society, led by the Quarter-Master who lives in Napoleon House), the River Barons (raiders who use a PlayingCardMotif), and Saturday's Children (voodoo tribals).
* *The Rocky Mountains*, likely centered on Denver. Imagine getting across swathes of radioactive snowstorms via a system of ancient ski lift gondolas.

** Considering that, if this is true, the real Vault Boy [[BrokenPedestal would have to be complicit in the unethical social programs]] that went on in the Vaults... why not?

It's a world where the post-atomic horror never ended!




to:

* Of course, in order for this to be true, something must have happened to Zefram Cochrane, whose invention of the warp drive came a decade before ''Fallout's'' Great War. Perhaps he was unable to complete his work due to the components he needed not being invented. Or perhaps he was killed in the Resource Wars. As an alternate theory he lived [[RichardNixonTheUsedCarSalesman an entirely different life]]- perhaps he's ''still'' alive, as a ghoul or something.

[[WMG:''Fallout'' is a parallel universe to ''StarTrek'']]
This ties heavily into the two previous posts (i.e., alien quarantine and alien involvement in nuclear war). Representatives of the Federation, getting wind that humanity was planning to leave its ravaged planet for the stars, and knowing of their capacity for savagery, used some means to provoke Earth's superpowers into nuclear war, instead of making first contact.




to:

* Indeed, Rapture may have been inspired by (or the inspiration for) the Vault Project. Maybe Ryan once knew House.

to:

*Going along with this, there was no technological divergence either. Instead, there was a movement in the pre-war world to create technology that is resistant to explosions and radiation, resulting in bulkier and lower-tech but much hardier and long lasting machines. However, it's difficult to find a reason why they'd be so prevalent in the general population since it's unlikely that most people would be willing to downgrade their technological experience.

[[WMG: A huge percentage of the Wasteland's problems can be attributed to Jet's origins.]]
Myron states that he was able to make Brahmin manure into amphetamines because pre-War biotech companies fed defective protein extracts to their cattle. That makes sense from both the CorruptCorporateExecutive front, but why would there still be amphetamines in mutant cow shit almost a century after the Apocalypse? ''Because it infected them with a prion disease'' - feeding the less-valuable parts of livestock to other was rather common... until [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bovine_spongiform_encephalopathy Bovine spongiform encephalophy]] was discovered. The protein extract just creates amphetamines instead of eating holes in people's brains, but when people eat Brahmin, they're likely to get infected themselves, and what do you think having a steady amount of amphetamines in your system 24/7 would do to your ''temper?'' Everyone in the wasteland is rather trigger-happy, but even the worst parts of Eastern Europe aren't filled with human tanneries and people screaming about bleeders. Because they don't have prion diseases making amphetamines part of their biochemistry.
