Yes, I believe this place could do with a bit more in the way of decoration. Speak with Moira Brown at Craterside Supply here in Megaton. She has quite a selection of items to enhance your living space.

Wadsworth

My Megaton house is a residence in Megaton which becomes available after the Lone Wanderer disarms the Megaton bomb during The Power of the Atom quest. Sheriff Lucas Simms gives the Lone Wanderer a key to the house as a reward for disarming the atomic bomb in the center of Megaton. If Simms dies during or before the aforementioned quest, his son Harden Simms will give the key instead. At this point the "Empty House" is renamed as "My Megaton house." The house includes a main floor lounge, a very small kitchenette, an upstairs landing, an unnamed room that Wadsworth often spends time in, and a bedroom.

AmenitiesEdit

The Wanderer has access to a robot butler, Wadsworth, who is able to tell jokes, supply purified water (he will give up to five bottles, then it takes one week for him to refill), style hair and explain what the home improvements are used for. If the My First Infirmary is purchased, Wadsworth will remind the Wanderer to use it if they pass by him injured. Sleeping in the bed on the second floor of the shack (or the heart-shaped bed if the Love Machine theme was bought from Craterside Supply), grants the "Well Rested" effect (+10% XP bonus) for 12 hours from when they wake. There are places to store an infinite amount of items in the house, including: two lockers, a fridge, a desk and a filing cabinet. There is also a bobblehead display stand for bobbleheads.

Home improvementsEdit

After becoming a resident of Megaton and the owner of a new house, the Wanderer can enhance their new home by adding improvements, which can be purchased from Moira at Craterside Supply.

Improvements include an infirmary, jukebox, laboratory, Nuka-Cola vending machine and a workbench. All of these improvements add new functionality to the house, which ranges from being able to be healed instantly for free, to being able to listen to music without using the Pip-Boy radio.

For enough caps, Moira can change the decor from a rundown shack to one of the following themes: Raider, Wasteland explorer, Vault, Science, Pre-War and Love Machine. A theme cannot be sold back, but it can be replaced by buying a new one. To obtain skill books from the themes, buy the Science (Nikola Tesla and You), and the Love Machine (Lying, Congressional Style) themes, since they are the only two that offer this extra bonus. These skill books can only be obtained once, however. Themes will displace any items that may have already been placed outside of item storage such as lockers for storage/decoration.

NotesEdit

  • Remove any decorations placed around the house before purchasing themes, as once the theme is purchased, the items may end up underneath theme objects, rendering them unobtainable.
  • On the premises of the Megaton House there is a ledge overlooking the Nuclear Bomb. To get to it go to the stairs that leads to the Megaton gate from the house. Look to the left and there is a ledge (Opposite of it is Lucas Simms' house). Then jump onto the ledge and follow it along. There is a small ledge where Megaton can be viewed and where items can be stored/displayed.
  • The house is half standing on struts from the roof of the Brass Lantern and half on land. From outside, it may look like it is going to collapse at any time.
  • It is unknown who used the house before the Lone Wanderer. Moira Brown indicates that somebody lived there not long ago.
  • My Megaton house remains in the game files of Fallout: New Vegas, however the cell is empty.

Cut versionEdit

Icon cut contentThe following is based on developer test content cut from Fallout 3 and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

An unused early version of My Megaton house called MegatonAbandonedHouseDummyCell exists and can be accessed with the use of console command coc MegatonAbandonedHouseDummyCell. It is empty except for a chair on the first floor and a bed on the second floor. This version is untextured and some may experience crashing shortly after entry.

BugsEdit

  • ps3Icon ps3 xbox360Icon xbox360 Sometimes Wadsworth will get stuck in the bedroom, blocking access to the bed or the file cabinet next to it (loading a previous save may work, or kill Wadsworth.) [verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 Items may teleport from the shack room to the left of the front door, but only if manipulated against another object. [verified]
  • xbox360Icon xbox360 pcIcon pc Sometimes items will vanish from all the containers in My Megaton house. Reloading an earlier save sometimes fixes this, but sometimes the glitch affects all saves. [verified]
