Hey guys! I'm back. My old computer DIED during school and I haven't had time until about now to get back to OHR. I don't have my old games so I'm going to make a new one...

This game is going to be a post-apocalyptic game, think Fallout, but be realistic-ish. For example all the weapons will be based off of real weapons.

What I need are suggestions for:
-A name
-A location, preferably a real US location, please help find a good map, like on google earth
-weapons to include
-main story ideas
-side quest ideas
-unique weapons
-ENEMIES! Try to think of an animal that is already "scary" and then mutate it
-and anything else you may think helps

THANKS! I have some ideas, but I really need help for this! CONTRIBUTORS WILL GET CREDIT, DON'T WORRY!

For a location I am going to suggest Wilmington California. I think it would make a good post apocalyptic setting. It is next to the Port of LA, surrounded by three oil refineries, and it has a lot of run down residential and small commercial stuff punctuated by a few points of interest like a small cathedral and a civil war museum. If you look at the Google Street View maps, you can see it already looks rather apocalyptic in places, especially in the south-east edge.

I just looked at it on google earth. That looks PERFECT! Thanks!

A lot of the setting would be clear if you just decided what kind of apocolyse it is. Have you decided that? Nuclear, alien invasion, zombie, collapse of civilisation, grey goo, end of time, World War Three, ice-nine, escaped biological weapons, collision with another 'dimension', disappearance of technology...

Those are great ideas, it could be very inetersting to play a game based on ice 9. :-)

I have an unfinished game(which i probably wound't finish anymore) that was inspired by fallout (and Arcanum). It's more about the disappearance of magic in a world that used to be very magical. I've finished some stuff in it but sadly my interests changed for a while and I wasn't able to continue it. So here I decided to post it now:

Maybe if you play it or open it in custom It might help somehow. Thanks.

Thanks for the suggestions guys! I'm leaning mostly towards a nuclear apocalypse. BUT, I may have zombies in some form or another, because, well, zombies make everything better...
