So, anyone here ever been to Joshua Tree National Park? Would the locale have made a good spot for a New Vegas "new lands" area? I'm sort of fascinated by Joshua trees ever since I read that they aren't actually trees.

Just did a quick google search and It would probably work for a Fallout spin-off regarding the NCR. Looking at its history, a faction from Mexico could probably have a fight off with the NCR kinda like the Mexican-American war.

Aside from that, there is nothing there aside from some camping grounds.

Yea I live in california, I've been to Joshua Tree Park a few times. The scenery is really Fallout-like but I dont think it would be the best new land area because it looks very similar to the vanilla lands already. Big rocks, cactus everywhere, shrubs, etc.

I could see it working as an Honest Hearts-esque DLC or new land mod, but what would be there to make it interesting and unique? Each DLC or new land mod had something that differentiated them from the main game like the absence of friendly NPCs in Lonesome Road or the Tribal war in Honest Hearts.

I was just thinking that Joshua trees are fairly sparse in the fallout world, just here and there, rather than a "forest" of them. But yeah if we're talking about completely new lands, there are better choices for differing terrain.

All things considered, it would be a pretty cool part of the world to be added. And there could be some sort of rationale to adding it into the world, maybe an enclave armory that some factions are fighting over not unlike the faction war in Far Harbor
