Vault 24 is a full sized, 1000 person vault. Currently it is in an Alpha state. As such you can expect some unfinished areas, a minimum of optimization, and no quests. Performance will be choppy as there has been optimization in only a handful of levels. This mod aims to be a modder resource as a first step. I hope to be able to complete it in a more or less 'default' state, that will allow others to use it as a resource in their own projects. Later I will add my own quest/storyline, but for the time being I am focusing on completing the structure of the vault.If you wish to explore the vault as it stands, feel free to do so. If you wish to use the vault, or any part of it, or any included asset, you are free to do so. It includes more than 300 custom meshes, and around 30 textures. In fact you are encouraged to take or use anything that strikes your fancy. However, you may wish to wait until the vault is finished. Or not. Look for the entrance somewhere in the East Central Sewers.

Work has continued steadily for the last month. Ostensibly I was beginning a complete dynamic cluttering sweep of the entire vault. However, practically I have spent most of my time working on the installation and perfection of a series of new vault elevators. The original concept and models are courtesy of SpeedyB64. I have tweaked them considerably, integrated them, and created numerous periphery and support models. Additionally I have got the elevators working with companions. Unlike the vanilla Fallout Elevators, these elevators actually move.


Vault Elevators

Installation, integration, and perfection of Vault 24's elevators has been a huge task. It started small, and grew and grew as the requirements for their proper functioning grew. Huge changes were made to the upper and lower stairwell levels. Additionally, new waiting rooms had to be built for each door of each elevator at each level. These then had to be integrated with the elevator shaft, and the exisiting levels. And models had to be built for the waiting rooms, elevators, elevator shafts...well, pretty much everything. Thankfully, a good chunk of the starting work was done by SpeedyB64 of the Nexus forums. I took what he made, and tweaked and expanded upon it for aesthetic integration into Vault 24. So without further delay, here are some screenshots of the elevators:

The elevators now allow for virtual total exploration of the vault. There are service doors, ducts, and windows opening into the shaft. There are ledges within the shaft for exploration down the shaft. The elevator cars themselves have holes in via an escape hatch in the ceiling, as well as missing panels on the sides. The working elevators can be used to quickly move vertically through the vault, avoiding the tedium, and perhaps danger, of always relying on the stairs. Up to eight companions, vanilla or modded, are currently supported. Here is some raw footage of the elevator in action with some companions in tow.

However, things are not all rosy. The elevator is a huge piece of work and scripting. I am not totally satisfied with my work on it. Because it has to work in conjunction with NPC packages it never seems to work perfectly. Perhaps this is the fault of the NPCs...perhaps my scripting. Whatever the case, the addition of the Elevator, and the addition of a few thousand dynamic clutter items, is sure to have introduced a good number of glitches and even bugs into version 0.9. Hopefully not too many...

Next up will be continuing dynamic cluttering, and then, final optimization. I am debating how far to go with optimization, as the way it works, the better I do it, the more I limit any third party modders who wish to use Vault 24 for their own projects. I am still uncertain how to proceed here.

Not sure whats going on, but this mod seems to be causing strange problems. Everytime i go near a door, a loading screen pops up and never ends. Not sure why.

however long this mod takes, i hope that you eventually do get around to adding your own storyline and quests for this. (maybe even a section of the vault that was locked away from the main part that still has people living in it as if nothing has happened? like a 200 person section relative to Fo3's 101?) any-who nice work on what you have done so far, and i hope that in time, or the relative future, that this mod will be finished.

Keep up the good work! I love the idea of an expanded Vault 34 story line.
Do you mind to post an update, even if it's just a rant how much tedious work cluttering this beast is ?

You never fail to impress me with your work Cambragol. Jesus, this thing is HUGE! The elevator door and the scripting that went into the buttons is my favourite part. Project Brazil is still working on Vault 18 from where I left off last year using the old resource you made for FO3 as its base.

Pure genius.

Same to you Thaiauxn! The look of what you've pulled together for Brazil already is amazing. Totally immersive atmosphere. As you already used my old vault 88 resource, you are more than welcome to use anything in Vault 24, or any of its assets, however you wish. I would be honoured if you did.
