Star Wars fever has reached the wasteland of Fallout 4. Canadian YouTuber Ops_Specialist showed off a giant settlement building in the shape of a giant AT-AT Sunday. In addition to looking cool on the outside, the residence at the Commonwealth AT-AT comes fully furnished with light, power, bedrooms, aesthetically pleasing common spaces, and even a bar. It may not walk or crush rebels, but as far as post-apocalyptic high rises go, you could do a lot worse.
With analysts predicting Star Wars: The Force Awakens will make $175-$220 million on opening weekend, everyone seems to looking to create, share and otherwise tie-in into the cultural force. ESPN, for example, will air a documentary special about the history of lightsaber duels Tuesday night.
Fallout 4‘s settlement building mechanics, the game’s most expansive new feature, has received mixed reviews from critics. In our Fallout 4 review, Will Fulton liked the crafting systems, but also appreciated that the game “doesn’t force these new systems on you, but leaves them available to reward the effort you put in.” Within certain circles, however, building and sharing large and intricate Fallout 4 settlements has become all the rage.
This is not Op_Specialist’s only impressive Fallout 4 settlement building: He’s also used the game’s building tools to create a giant version of Edward Munch’s Scream and a replica Eiffel Tower, among others. He’s also posted a variety of tips and how-to videos for exploration-minded wasteland wanderers.
If you want to see how the AT-AT settlement came to be (and perhaps replicate it for yourself), Ops_Specialist livestreamed the mutli-hour build and has posted an archived version of the broadcast as a series of videos on YouTube as well (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3). Hopefully they’ll help hold you over until Star Wars: The Force Awakens opens in theaters Friday, December 18.
