[FoE] Maripony by TheOmegaRidley [FoE] Maripony by TheOmegaRidley
The M.A.S. facility in Splendid Valley, home of the Alicorns and our good ol' Master Goddess.
This is how I've always seen it, since the outside has never really been described, and even playing Fallout 2 didn't help. So, imagination. :iconimaginationplz:
The red flare on top of the facility comes from a library on the internet.

Next stop, Ponyville. Then, Appleloosa. Then...dunno. Any suggestions ?

Although I imagined it differently, this is a great take on Maripony! Well done.
My problem is probably that the perspective and the glowing light at the tip of tower very much remind me of the Yamatai radio tower in Tomb Raider 2013 ;)
But that isn't your fault of course!
Great picture nonetheless.

I often go back and reread the descriptions for every location, but surprisingly, Maripony wasn't described AT ALL. The story just tells you that the party is being brought inside the base and...that's it. I don't know if Kkat had such a good idea of it in her mind that she didn't feel like it needed to be described but...yeah, if you never played Fallout 1 and  2, it's kinda hard to imagine it. So I came up with my own design.

Never played a Tomb Raider game, so I can't relate. :p
And thanks !

Could be she imagined it like the vats-chamber in FO1...
I think my own mental image is influenced by that as well.
But then again it's all fused with pony-hightech/high-magic.
It's really interesting how different people imagine the base dependent on the feeling they got from reading the non-description.

so this place is more like a "cloning" base? :-? (Confused)

An Alicorn producing facility, actually. Don't know whether or not you've read the story, so I won't spoil you much more.

I though that that maripony base had an elevator that when underground and looked like it did in FO1 (only the entrance wasn't like fallout, only this)

Huhu, you're right, but as said previously in other comments, this is my vision of Maripony. :)
There was no description of the exterior part of the base in Fallout: Equestria, so everyone imagined it in their own way. I played Fallout 1 & 2, but somehow, Maripony looks different in my mind. But it doesn't have to affect your canon, after all, I don't want to ruin everyone's ideas. :D

This is an epic drawing that really changes my view of Maripony, but the only problem is the place upon which this site is based exists in both Fallout 1 and 2. Did you never go to Mariposa, aka Army Base or whatever it was called west of Vault 13?

:icontheomegaridley:
TheOmegaRidley Featured By Owner Nov 25, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I sure did, and I remember it was...bigger than this, on solid ground, surrounded by some fences and tents, and a lot of Super mutants...
But again, the facility wasn't really described in the story, and this how I see it ! It doesn't have to be exactly like yours, that's the magic of stories and vague descriptions : Imagination ! :iconohjoyplz:
Thank you for your opinion. :)

I'll focus more on sidestory locations (Hoofington, Route 52, Dise, etc...) once I'm done with the actual story. I plan on drawing Appleloosa & co, but Little Apple...isn't that a location of one of your stories ? °°

Hm. J'imagine que je pourrais aussi le dire en français.
Excellent travail. ^^
J'adore la lumière qui vient de l'antenne tout en haut du batiment, une touche sympathique et qui attire l'oeil presque autant que l'énorme fosse? lac radioactif? du bas.

J'ai pas spécialement de mérite pour la lueur de l'antenne, car, comme dit, ça vient d'une bibliothèque de Flares sur internet.
Pour la fosse radioactive, par contre, j'y ai mis un peu plus d'énergie :p

Merci beaucoup, l'ami ! :)

Didn't actually read FoE, so forgive me if I am not familiar with the concept. ^^;
Quite a lot of alicorns....
But the atmosphere is quite interesting, and the concept of this platform is well done. :)

It's nothing. Don't read it if you don't want or don't have time for that. It's quite long after all. :)
I'm sorry I might be a bit egoistic, only drawing things that a small part of people can fully enjoy.
And yes, the story does have a lot of alicorns, which makes it a bit weird when you start, but once the reason for that is explained...it becomes one of the best stories ever !

Oh, and I was almost forgetting to thank you for the comment ^^;

Okay, spoilers incoming (if someone ever finds this comment and hasn't read the story yet, you're warned ! Yes, you, I see you !)

The Fallout Universe ( the game itself) makes you fight against a lot of different enemies. Some of them are called Super Mutants, which are human being that have been exposed to a mutation virus. Thus, they become "Super humans". Fallout: Equestria kinda does the same thing but the ponies are turned into a superior race of ponies instead : Alicorns. These are far weaker than Celesti, Luna or Twilight Sparkle, but still more powerful than most of the other creatures you can find in the Wasteland, including ponies. They play the role of super enemy units and often fly in groups. There are three kinds of Alicorns : Green, Blue and Purple, each having some specific powers and spells. They can be tricked and killed, but still prove a real challenge to every wastelander out there.

Eh, I know this conversation isn't mine, but about FoE games, I can suggest you to take a loot at these links:

The first one is a Bethesda's fallout-like game, while the second link is made like the first two opus of the series.
Just to tell you.
Sorry to interrupt the discussion.

I think it'd be awesome to see your rendition of the massive final battle in "Fallout: Equestria," the climactic showdown that decides the fate of the Wasteland. I don't think that's been done yet. 
Also, there aren't nearly enough artworks of Enclave territory. What would pegasi civilization look like, safe above the clouds? What's Neighvarro look like?

That's a brilliant idea ! I've been drawing the Wasteland for quite some time now, and to avoid getting bored, I think I'm going to...go higher !
Thunderhead/Shadowbolt Tower and Neighvarro were already on my list, but adding an epic final battle to it...oooh, that'd be awesome ! Thanks for the suggestion, NamelessNuthyng ! :D

Wow!  Now that's seriously an awesome take on Maripony!

I have to agree, this was definitely one of the many FoE locations that could have used a more complete description, particularly considering it was based off the penultimate dungeon of the first Fallout.  The massive glowing sinkhole and awkward tilt of the building is a nice touch, it really adds to the sense if this being one of the Wasteland's many no-zones.

Since your asking, I do think it was be great to see your rendition of (New?) Appleloosa, that place could always use more attention.
