Big thanks to “theletteryogh” for the info on “Cuphead”, a game based on the principles  of rubberhose animation (specifically, those sinister lil’ fleischer shorts)


Looks great!

handy pro-guide to fallout shelter that did me well:

  • during the tutorial, don’t place two different rooms next to each other. expand downwards and leave space to the sides. the tutorial doesnt mention that placing two rooms of the same type next to each other creates a bigger, more efficient room. i.e, two water purification centers next to each other will merge to make a bigger one, and it’s really good for starting off a vault
  • open your lunchkits asap! if you get a rare dweller, send them out into the wasteland overnight and bring them back in the morning, they’ll have tons of weapons and armor.
  • pay attention to the SPECIAL stats. they are key to producing lots of neccessities. when you are placing a dweller, hover them over a room and find which room shows the highest SPECIAL stat. this is where they will be happiest and perform best.
  • give one person in each room a weapon. if a radroach attack happens, then you can at least handle it until you get other armed vault members there.
  • upgrade rooms before adding rooms. instead of getting ten non-upgraded energy generators, get three fully-upgraded ones for the same effect.
  • do the achievements. most of them are pretty easy and pay handsomely. they are also the only way to get lunchkits without microtransactions
  • if raiders attack, place all armed vault members by the vault entrance. depending on how far into the game you are, they should take care of all or most of the raiders.
  • pay attention to your exploring dwellers! if they run out of health and dont have a stimpack/become irradiated and don’t have radaway, they can die, and you’ll have to pay caps (which depend on the level) to bring them back
  • happiness also plays a big role in the game. the best ways to keep up happiness are to assign people to the proper workstations. if someone has really low happiness that is bringing down your approval rating, find someone else of the other gender and put the two together in the living area. they will make a baby and their happiness will almost always max out.
  • on that note! make babies! they take a while to age up, but it’s the most effective way to bring new dwellers in until you get a radio station.
  • keep an eye on your resources, even if they are all above the line. if you see one is moving down despite you having just refueled it, it might be time for upgrade or expansion.

that’s all for now, but these are a bunch of mistakes i made with my first vault and i wanted to help people from having to start over like i did
