A Fallout 4 gamer is still meticulously crafting their settlements nearly a decade after the game’s release. The player created a bright and cheerful neighborhood that directly juxtaposes the post-apocalyptic landscape of the vast majority of Fallout 4.
Like most modern Bethesda RPGs, Fallout 4 features robust character and settlement-building mechanics. The developer’s latest RPG, Starfield, also features robust character and spaceship-building mechanics. Customization has long been expected in series like Fallout, Elder Scrolls, and now as a generation-defining feature in Starfield. Still, the settlement building in Fallout 4 calls out to many gamers who are looking to explore the wastelands.

Fallout 4 player and Reddit user sirbalz created an impressive neighborhood within the game that is somewhat reminiscent of Bill’s town from The Last of Us. However, the gamer was actually inspired by the world of Far Cry 5. The neighborhood is much bigger than it seems from the screenshot too, as its full scale is shown off in a YouTube video the player made along with a lengthy lore explanation. Those who played the game will likely recognize several memorable locations from Far Cry 5.
The gamer estimates that they spent 45-50 hours creating the settlement, which is honestly impressive considering the sheer scale of the build. Even without knowledge of Far Cry 5, the effort that goes into building a neighborhood like this within a game is evident. With all the customization options available, it’s easy to see why Fallout 4 ranks among the best base-building post-apocalyptic games.
Character and settlement-building mechanics give games like Fallout 4 near-infinite replayablity. Not to mention, there are a ton of Fallout 4 mods that make settlement-building better. Still, this is one small aspect within a larger RPG. There are so many areas to explore, NPCs to interact with, and sidequests to complete, but gamers can spend hours upon hours in the customization screens of the various character and settlement builders.
This isn’t the first time sirbalz has created something epic like this either. The gamer recently showed off their incredible Diagon Alley settlement from the Harry Potter movies in Fallout 4. They also spent a year working on the same impressive settlement, and they also constructed a gladiator arena and Cyberpunk City all using the settlement builder within Fallout 4. Overall, the gamer appears to simply be a master at constructing elaborate cities and buildings within the world of Fallout.
Fallout 4 is available now for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X/S.
