If you walk down the road from Sanctuary Hills, you come to Red Rocket! As with all my Fallout settlements, it looks very different to how it looked at the start of the game:
So these folks at Red Rocket have it pretty good, although not quite as good as the people across the bridge at Sanctuary Hills. RR is a little more run-down and dilapidated-looking. But for people who’ve just wandered through the ruins of Concord and reached it, it’s the most beautiful-looking place in the world…
You may have noticed this Red Rocket settlement is bigger than the game should allow! Well, that’s because I used Conquest to expand it. Conquest has limits, as you can imagine, but overall I think it’s friggin’ wonderful.
Regardless of which way you approach RR from, you’ll probably see the garage and courtyard first.
Here’s where I keep my power armour and some Christmas lights I never took down:
What do you see in there, boy?
The decidedly grubby-looking garage interior:
Outside, to the right of the garage, there’s a little home for the animals. Awww, Dogmeat made another friend!
And of course, here’s some houses, thoughtfully coloured red in order to match the garage.
The interior of the house on the right…
And the interior of the house on the left. Oh hey, this one’s got a person in it.
Back outside! Let’s take a look up that ladder.
Up here there’s another house, a tiny little house for one:
And a little plant growing area!
Like most of the houses around this settlement which aren’t the big fancy red ones, this house is pretty much just kitchen, bathroom, desk, sofa, bed, done.
After climbing back down the ladder and turning around, you can make a beeline for the market area. Everything beyond that point was built using Conquest!
A closer look at the market stalls.
At the top of the stairs is THE TOY SHACK!
I love this little shop. Oooh, here it is at night.
It’s nice on the inside too. Look, it even has a little reading nook of sorts.
Outside there’s three houses, all constructed from salvaged Vault parts, in a cluster.
House number one (the furthest one away) is so small you can get the entire interior in one picture, pretty much, but it does have a magnificent view of Sanuctuary Hills from the window.
House number two is also fairly small, but cosy.
House number three is up a couple stairs.
If you walk on past the houses, you’ll come to the security area. There’s a police station with a guard station out back.
Employees hard at work.
Past the police station, up an unforgiving rocky hill, is the prison. This is where the worst of the worst (think Raiders and the like) go.
(I wish there was a way of actually capturing Raiders and sticking them in there, but I haven’t found it yet.)
Let’s walk back!
Back at the garage, you can make out a metal pole between the two houses…
…and it’s pointing the way to Abernathy Farm! Only a short walk away! That’ll be the next stop.
