You have to play Mothership Zeta, and look out of the ship and spend a few minutes familiarising the geography and textures of the planet, and then you can figure out the landmasses, that's the only way. The info about Algonguin Provincial Park's been on here for a good 4 years now, and when I looked at the planet in my past playthroughs, the death ray shot went within Ontario. Same thing for the support mothership crash site, with it being in Nunavut's Great Bear Lake, that's where it goes, you have to familiarise with the geography of the planet and then watch where it lands.

I've come to a new realisation on it, actually, after looking at the picture from a different angle, only played MZ about three times. It seems that the Death Ray actually fires at the Great Bear Lake, and as for the support mothership crash site I'm not sure, since I'd have to play the game. But basically, look at the body of water in the image, and type in "Great Bear Lake" on Google Maps, and click on the "Earth" option at the bottom-left so it shows the map in reality.
Now, it appears that in MZ, we're facing south as we look at the Earth. On the death ray image, right near the explosion, there's a small peninsula beginning with a thin line and then a large circle sticking out into the lake. Compare this to the Google Maps, it looks the same. And on the death ray image, just south of that circular peninsula in the water is another peninsula. Compare it with Google Maps again, and it looks the same. Even on the death ray image's north-west part of the lake, which would be the south-east part on Google Maps, there's a very thin river leading to a large circular body of water. When compared to both, the geography of both real life and Fallout versions of the Great Bear Lake look about the same, with only a very small few tiny differences in the Fallout version, but almost entirely about the same. There's also no other place near that size in the world that looks similar to the Great Bear Lake, because I just looked on Google Maps.
The support mothership lands what is north of the lake, near the Tuktut Nogait National Park, literally right near the border between Nunavut and the Northwest Territories, I can't tell which side it crashes on. Blog 07:15, September 2, 2015 (UTC)
Yeye it's alright bro, but yeah I'm 99% sure it's the Great Bear Lake, and nor the death ray shot or the support ship go anywhere near Algonquin Park, so it must have been someone who must have incorrectly assumed the bodies of water were the Great Lakes near Michigan. But yeah, the support ship can be seen going downwards if you go onto the lower tier of the bridge behind the death ray button, and it can be seen going smaller and smaller, further towards Earth, and lands south of the lake and the death ray shot (but actually north, since it appears south due to position of Zeta above Earth), and crashes within the zone of Tuktut Park.

Game Guide app Edit
I didn't know if you were aware, but we have an Android and Apple game app specifically for Fallout. I would love to have a link to them on the main page - I've got an image all ready and a link users can plug their phone numbers into for the SMS code. The app content page looks up to date to me, but if you want to give it a once-over, that would be appreciated.
We're looking into ways to promote it even further - maybe on individual game pages? - but we're open to any and all ideas :)
- Just wanted to give this a nudge ;) Raylan13 (talk) 14:46, September 4, 2015 (UTC)
Huh, well, she should be more careful next time.09:42, September 12, 2015 (UTC)
I was not aware of the change (as evidenced by my own user page :P), so could you link me with the updated YT template? That way I can assess whether or not the update can be done via AWB. --Skire (talk) 19:29, September 17, 2015 (UTC)
- Since most people have their YouTubePlayer templates in multiple lines, it becomes hard (if not impossible) to correct via AWB. Keep in mind this program is pretty limited in capability. It's also hard to transfer the autoplay settings over via bot. I'll try to see if I can get around to using the bot with some manual work to change them. --Skire (talk) 21:46, September 18, 2015 (UTC)
- I've looked a bit more into the task. Basically, the multiple lines and the autoplay option make it better for users to just correct it themselves. We should post a notice that the YoutubePlayer template is now defunct, along with instructions for how to use the coding. That way, people can decide whether they want autoplay or not, or even if they want to centre the player. --Skire (talk) 04:38, September 22, 2015 (UTC)
I was wondering if you had an opinion on this site being included in the new gaming footers? We'd love for the Fallout community to be included!
- Sounds great! For now I'll list and approve it - but if there's any decision contrary, I'll be sure to revert that ;) Raylan13 (talk) 19:55, September 24, 2015 (UTC)
Portable infoboxes Edit
Heya :) Just stopping by to see if you have any thoughts on the Portable infobox project that Shining-Armor started up a little while ago. Because of Fallout's obvious importance to Wikia, particularly as we approach the launch of Fallout 4, we'd like to make sure that all your infoboxes are as accessible by mobile devices as is possible. Please drop by the forum as soon as you can and give your views. And of course my user talk page is always open to whatever comments — even rude ones — that you'd like to make!
