A fun roleplay server based off the Fallout universe. We provide a community dedicated to Fallout lore and roleplaying.
Official vault packs! Texture Pack
This is out official server texture pack made specifically for this server. If you do not use this then you will see random blocks of wool and other things will look out of place so I do recommend using it. All Credits for the texturepack goes to Game_Geek for making this whole texturepack just for our server. To use the texturepack click This: http://www.minecraftforum.net/topic/556589-32x-173-last-days-fallout-rehash/
For a better experience we have a vast range of plugins available, some are Admin only plugins which you don't need to worry about. Others are for you to help protect and improve your experience while on the server. VIP members will get extra access to some of the commands which is explained further into the post.
But the list will be released to the public when bukkit 1.0 comes out.
The optional Client Mod!
Spoutcraft, formerly BukkitContrib SP, connects the server and client which makes most of the Spout features possible. Some things such as inventory monitoring and the server speed improvements only require the Spout server plugin. Any player can connect to a Spout enabled server; they will just miss out on the features it has to offer. Spoutcraft is optional, but using it unlocks the real features behind the Spout plugin.

Our server is based off the game, Fallout New Vegas. However, we are based in Northern Arizona, 2250, a bit in the past from New Vegas. If you are unfamiliar with the fallout universe, you may want to read the timeline below. However, if you are familiar with fallout lore, skip down to the year 2276 and from then on carries on our server lore.
The server is set in Washington, Seattle and mostly follows Canon. If you already know enough about Fallout skip to 2276 on the timeline, before that is just a brief explanation of how the Great War began for anyone who hasn't played the game. The end is a brief explanation of the lore in the server.
2066- Construction of Vault 93 Begins in the southeast border of Utah, workers are given orders to rush the building process.
2066, Date not found- Resource rationing in Denver causes riots. Midwest U.S.A. and Mexico start having food shortages and can't supply Denver with the food it needs. Food riots occur.
National Guard called in.
2066, Spring- As the oil resources dry up across the globe, China's fossil fuel dependency causes an energy crisis in the nation. China, bordering on collapse, becomes more aggressive in its trade talks with the United States.
Unwilling to export oil to China, talks between the United States and China break down.
2066, Winter- In the winter of 2066, China invades Alaska. The Anchorage Front Line becomes a true battleground.
2066, Winter- As a sign of increasing tension between the two countries, Canada proves reluctant to allow American troops on Canadian soil or allow American planes to fly over Canadian airspace. American and Canadian tensions rise, but Canada eventually backs down, and U.S. troops pass through Canada.
This sets the stage for the Canadian annexation in 2076
2067- The first suit of T-45d Power Armor is deployed in Alaska. While lacking the full mobility of future versions, this Power Armor is incredibly effective against Chinese tanks and infantry. Its ability to carry heavy ordinance becomes key in various localized conflicts, and it has the power to destroy entire towns without endangering the wearer.
China rushes to create its own versions, but they are many years behind the United States
2068- Construction of Vault 93 Ends, people start flooding into the vault.
2069- Canada begins to feel the pressure from the United States military as the U.S. draws upon Canadian resources for the war effort. Vast stretches of timberland are destroyed, and other resources in Canada are stretched to the breaking point. Many Americans refer to Canada as Little America, and Canadian protests are unheard.
2072- The United States' increasing demand for Canadian resources causes protests and riots in several Canadian cities. An attempted sabotage of the Alaskan pipeline is all the military needs as an excuse to finalize its annexation of Canada, which had already begun in 2067.
2072, June 3- Canada fully annexed by the U.S.A.
2074- Negotiations between the U.S. and other world powers come to a dramatic end. The President walks out of oil talks with the other world powers. After a much heated debate, the President stormed out of the meeting and declared that the last known supply of petroleum will be used exclusively by the U.S., and the U.S. will not sell or trade any oil to outside parties.
2076, January- The United States annexation of Canada is complete. Canadian protesters and rioters are shot on sight, and the Alaskan Pipeline swarms with American military units. Pictures of atrocities make their way to the United States, causing further unrest and protests.
2077- Gas prices skyrocket, regular gas price being $7450.99 per gallon and $8500.99 per gallon for premium.
2077- a Dangerous new plague hits Denver. Rioters burned down large parts of the city in their fear of contamination and anger at their treatment. Many panicked and fled the city by car, clogging the freeways when they ran out of gas and trapping everyone behind them.
2077, October 23- The Great War begins, who struck first is unkown. Air raid sirens sound, but very few people heed the warning, thinking it is a false alarm. The Vaults are sealed. Two hours of nuclear bombardment ensues upon the earth's surface. The effects are far worse than most imagined. The earth's faults shift violently, thrusting mountain ranges through the soil and whole lands are being submerged under floods of water.
2077, October 23- Salt Lake City is hit with 13 nukes and is mostly destroyed.
2077, October 30- A week after the initial blast, a black rain begins to fall. The source of the black rain was the massive amounts of radioactive particle debris (mainly soot) from the nuclear firestorm a week earlier. Plants and animals both go rapidly into extinction.
2080- The first effects of radiation are seen in the survivors. Widespread mutations occur with animals and humans alike. Those that survive the effects of the mutations are permanently changed. New species are created almost overnight.
2082- Five years after the Great War, some aspects of the world begin to calm down. Radiation and poison levels are still too high for normal human survival.

During the expedition, the future Caesar discovers a cache of historical books, some of them regarding ancient Rome, including Comentarii by Julius Caeasar himself, which fascinates the young man.
2247- Graham, Calhoun and the future Caesar are captured by the Blackfoot tribe for ransom. The young Follower uses his knowledge to train the tribals in the art of warfare, impressing them enough to become their leader. Caesar assumes the name of ancient Roman emperor and makes Joshua Graham his right-hand man. He decides to create an empire modeled after the historical Roman Empire, intending to erase the tribals' individual identities and replace them all with a single, monolithic culture - the Legion.

Don't know what faction to join? Here are some descriptions of the current factions we have in our server!
The New California Republic
They're a disciplined prewar military based focused on occupying land and making a uniform government for all wastelanders. They try to maintain order by taxing citizens under their land and try to prevent raiders and the legion from causing chaos in the wastes. They strive to be the protectors who fight under the two headed bear.
Faction perk: Able to tax wastelanders
The Caesar's Legion are a slaver group from the mideast. They are uninterested in tech and intoxicating substance. The Legion are a strong Roman based military that focus on gathering power from enslaving people and gaining resources from slave manual labor.
Faction perk: The ability to enslave people
The Brotherhood of the Steel
Though there are a few of them in numbers, the brotherhood are an underground group of people looking to exapnd as far as tech. They are not prominant as they once were in the wastes due to the conflicting groups such as the NCR and the legion pushing them down. However, that does not stop them from being an unstoppable force if needed.
Faction perk: Able to wear power armor, (Diamond armor).

If im correct, your building on the 1.7 terrain gen,so that means the new server map won't have higher mountains/swamp/ravine/abandon mine etc etc
cause 1.8 added a brand new biome generation code
We have HUGE mountains as is with the generator we used. I don't think we need ravines, vines etc because we pretty much got rid of grass, trees, etc. (but the grass may be an issue, it keeps coming back).
We added our own handmade dungeons and such so... I'm not so sure what we'll do with strongholds etc... We might switch some materials when 1.8 comes out, ie: cracked stone etc.
Yeah commando, thanks. I appreciate it quite a bit. After all I got nowhere else to go. Anyway, will I have to reapply now? I haven't written a whitelist application since the third relaunch.
