    Given that it looks like 2087 in 2277 then I would say a mere ten years wouldn't tarnish the l33t wastelandness of D.C.

    Well, I certainly hope the Capital Wasteland has improved it's situation when FO4 rolls around. Perhaps Rivet City and Megaton will have expanded a bit and at least start looking the part of major supply towns. I'm sure the Brotherhood will still be white knighting it up wait for the Enclave to attack again with a new power armor model, but the Brotherhood will finally crush them with their mass produced Liberty Primes.
     
  4. Well, that's obvious. You just said that they'd have the exact same face. I just wanted to know how that'd work out for female couriers.

    here is what i think would happen in 10 years

    BOS:with enclave gone they would take control of the capital wasteland helping the people in it and then they would focus on getting rid of the mutants.

    outcasts:they remnined at fort independence until it is overruned by the BOS or until they contact the original BOS then that would start a war

    Talon:with ransacking water caravans they would get overruned and wiped out by the BOS.

    Reily's Rangers:they would grow taking fort banshier for themselves then become a mititary force

    megaton:would grow and taking springville would become the safest place in the wasteland creating their own authority and caravans

    Rivet City: would then stop guarding water caravans since the brotherhood is big enough to guard them now they would try to get the aircrafts working then have outposts all over the country.

    CCommons:would become the trading center of the wasteland creating caravans and then become the wealthist town in the wasteland.

    tenpenny tower:would be overrun by ghouls then become the second and greatist ghoul settlement in the wasteland

    big town:would be abandoned as the settlers would go to safer settlements

    the pitt:would be overruned by the BOS and the BOS would see they were making a cure for mutantions and making a working steel indruisty they also try to do this and then in 20 more years the would acomplised that

    or

    i would take over the capital wasteland with an army of y-17 trauma harnesses,cyberdogs, and robo scorpions getting rid of all of the factions and make the wasteland a technolagy paradise :D

    (sorry for my grammer)

    Really? And how do you propose they get 200 old jet planes working without any replacement parts or anybody with the knowledge to make them, and the fact that theres no fuel left.

    what about vertibirds? if what you said was true the BOS and enclave wouldn't use them that means that there is either fuel left or they found a way around that they could do the same for aircrafts

    I think that it's fairly aparent then that Vertibirds don't run on Oil as, you know, that was the reason for the collapse of the First Civilisation. If common pre-war cars run on fusion then I see no reason why a protptype military combat aircraft built during the same energy crisis wouldn't either.

    I think your biggest problem to your idea is that:

    1. Nobody knows how to fly a jet.
    2. Landing on a Aircraft Carrier is hard enough, landing on one that has broken in half is impossible simply due to the lack of space.
    3. Their fighter jets, where is your water going to be stored.
    4. Where are they going to land with their hypothetical water supplies? Jet fighters are hardly known for having flexible landing conditions.

    Makes sense.

    They don't like each other, I don't think thier going to have a shooting war though. If anything the Brotherhoods victory against the Enclave and the Tech they looted from them might cause the outcast to region Lyons.


    I think that happened in Broken Steel.

    Are you drunk?

    Honestly I forget about that settlement.

    More likely they'd be even greater dicks then tenpenny given that Roy tells ghouls to kill any humans who know about tenpenny tower.

    So the Brotherhood return to loot the pitt again now that Ashur has restored it to a working city. I think Ashur had a point, the Brotherhood would rather loot Vaults that actually restart civilization with the exception of the Midwestern Brotherhood.

    Personally I see the wasteland still being a Shit whole ( pardon my profanity) that doesn't really work or make any sense due the everyone their seemingly having no working brain cells.

    My predictions:

    the lone wanderer being an average FO3 player thinks he is invincible and decides to fight the death claws at old olney bare handed and dies a "hero's" death. Without his determination to do everything for anyone in the capital wasteland nothing gets done, the people of Canterbury commons continue to pretend to be a trading outpost.

    the people of megaton survive for a while until lucas sim dies and then when a lone mole rat gets in through the gates they all perish as they cannot get into the "armoury" due to it's impressive lock.

    little lamplight continues to be a cave fungus enduced hallucination
    because no matter how hard gamebryo tries to tell us otherwise children do in fact die.

    Rivet city's inhabitance, encouraged by the "amazing work" done by doc li and associates at the purifier, proceed to begin work on repairing the jet's on board but end up killing anyone intelligent in the process. Rivet city is empty by the end of the the year save for pinkerton who remains the only truly smart man in the wasteland.

    the brotherhood repair liberty prime and proceed to wipe out everyone in the wasteland who is a threat to their sinister dictatorship ( a fact that no one in the wasteland realises), these targets include Reilly's rangers.they recruit recruit the mechanist as the man to repair liberty prime and he still deluded steals prime after he has helped the BOS taking to the streets to wipeout mutants and ants alike

    Due to the death of the lone wanderer, three dog has no more news and as such shuts down galaxy news radio.

    the wasteland remains silent as the republic of dave flurishes

    I actually think I like this ending the best.
    Fallout 2 except instead of the enclave triumphs its stupidity triumphs.

    Thank I really think it sums up the capital wastelands stupidity.

    knowing Bethesda though I can see FO4 being in the capital wasteland and even more stupid. Harold's turned everything into forrest and you get to play elder scrolls VI: capital wasteland where the members of little lamplight are revealed to be fairies and 3 dog a city herald

    Based on my play through I see the following

    Talon Company after losing Fort Banister and their commander Scatter too the winds.

    With Ashur dead Wherner claims his work as his own and becomes just as bad.

    Tennypenny Tower become filled with the Ghoul version of Tennpenny's bigots.

    Outcast leave since they will clearly find nothing in the capital wasteland in the long run.

    Brotherhood of Steel will be a powerful force in the wasteland but will face difficulty restoring any order.

    Regulators go on as normal.

    Most settlements go on as normal

    Dave dies because Karma hit him like a bitch.

    Probably the same.

    I mean, those guys in DC aren't really that interested in building new infrastructure.

    Obviously. They think it is more practical to build near a nuke than settle somewhere else.

    Duh, and that society requires scavenging on 200 hundred year old food sources (not all of them mind).
