New Vegas Game Location Logistical Information
Hello! My name is Kate Darrow and I am living my best life out here in the wastes after being banned from all the casinos. I appreciate your interest in my project. I am beyond excited to share my work with everyone. I started the project in January 2017 and have spent the last few years on location, researching, and writing this guide. My main goal is to provide a comprehensive list of all Fallout: New Vegas locations, to encourage all Couriers to embark upon their own journey into the wastes.
Please read the real world information tips and tricks by clicking here if you are interested in planning a trip out here to the Mojave.
Organization of Mojave Locations
I have organized my travels in the Mojave Wasteland by geographical sections, comparing to the in game map. In each section I grouped locations that are close by one another. In cases where I could not find it or it did not exist, I mention it in the order I would have found it. I also mention if the location does exist in real life but appears in a different location in game.
I have included both marked and unmarked locations as well as both exterior and interior named cells where appropriate. I wrote the guide in a fairly familiar voice, sharing other things I experienced and saw along the way. The dates on the entries here do not reflect the actual travel dates and are used primarily for organization purposes – except in the case of my birthday (!!)
New Vegas Interactive Map
I thought it would be helpful to include the Google Maps version of the map I used to traverse the Mojave and beyond. If you are interested in having your own New Vegas adventure, and you most definitely should, here is a resource for you to use. Some addresses are not exact due to the nature of the location, some locations do not exist any more, and a few I added just because they were a point of interest for me, or a place I tagged to remind myself to go later. A large number of them I can not remember why I added, but hopefully it will be of interest.
You can always refer to my guide entries for way, way too much detail on each Fallout: New Vegas location equivalent. Keep in mind this is always a work in progress for me, as I spend a great deal of time re-visiting areas, re-playing the game, re-reading everything and making a lot of corrections to my own work. Even though the desert stays pretty much the same every day, the human inhabited parts change more frequently.
I am an avid and enthusiastic Fallout Nukapedia editor, where I have included all of the location findings for future wastelanders to use on their own journeys. You can see my contributions to the Fallout wiki here.
Keep in mind that this project is just for fun. It is an attempt to create something as comprehensive as possible, but since I did not work on the development of the game, all of my work here is complete conjecture. I wrote all of this for no other reason than to reflect and celebrate my love of the game. I am by no means an authority, just a long time fan who has done a remarkable amount of research – which involves blood, sweat, and yes, sometimes tears.
I encourage everyone to use the information I have put together here to complete your own journey. I can say my best guess is it will be a type of excitement that can not even be put to words. The best days of my life have been spent out here, and I would never want to live anywhere else.
Words of Gratitude
I would be remiss not to mention how thankful I am to many people who make my research possible. First, to my friends and family, who tolerate my constant talking about or relating everything to Fallout: New Vegas or to equivalent locations. I am sorry for all the conversations I dominated. To my employer, a great university who allows me generous time off to chase my dreams and my colleagues and peers who also have had to deal with my incessant rambling.
Thank you to every person I have met here in the Mojave, who have helped me find locations, given me advice, allowed me to ask way, way too many questions, made my meals, prepared my accommodations, pointed me in the right direction, gave me trinkets, and smiled at my cosplay, given me the benefit of the doubt, helped me learn how to live in the desert, changed my tire, un-stuck my Jeep, helped me climb cliffs, and much more. Thank you for teaching me how to fit in to my new home, for all the hugs, and high fives, waves, and smiles. Thank you for encouraging me, even though I was a stranger.
Thank you to the community and my fellow editors on Nukapedia and the many helpful and supportive individuals on the subreddits /fnv and /falloutnewvegas – especially for your support, kind words and encouragement on my on-location cosplay. I was self-conscious at first and you all helped me become confident. A very important thank you to Dr. Jim Boone, the author of the incredibly detailed and helpful website Bird and Hike, which allows me to stay safe off roading and hiking in unfamiliar parts of the Mojave.
And last but certainly not least, thank you to the individuals at Obsidian Entertainment, for your talent and passion lending itself to the creation of a piece of work so priceless and iconic. It has given me so much joy and inspiration. You truly created something exceptional and I am so thankful for your work.
