Artificial Memory Palaces series - Fallout 4

In this thread I will place the artificial memory palace that I make in the game Fallout 4.

Fallout 4 Story

Fallout 4 is a post-apocalyptic game made by Bethesda Studios. In the game you play the Sole Survivor, someone who has been frozen in a cryogenic vault when the nuclear war started, only to wake up 200 years later as the only survivor from your facility.

In the game you can join various factions. The Minutemen, a civilian militia that aims to protect settlements against attacks. The East Coast Brotherhood of Steel, a technocratic military that sets out to collect and protect technology. The Institute, a scientific organisation hidden underneath the wasteland that creates robotic and synthetic humans to rebuild the world aboveground. The Railroad, an activistic group that wants to free the sentient synthetic humans from the Institute. And finally the Raiders, various groups that use violence and intimidation to live off the hard work that their slaves do for them.

In Fallout 4 you have the opportunity to build settlements, a great opportunity to build some Memory Palaces! Here I will post and maintain a list of Fallout 4 settlements that I have made, for you to use as inspiration for your own memory palaces.

I have used Fallout 4 to memorize a law recently. It was quite easy, I just went in the directions the gameplay naturally brought me. Starting in the Vault, then Sanctuary, gas station, and then it ends somewhere where you can build again. The reason I used Fallout 4 is that the law I memorized is called “Fusionsgesetz” (german): Fallout made me think of nuclear fusion

I could have fit much more information there, but I like to have dedicated palaces for each law, so I don’t confuse anything.

Nice to hear that there are more who like the game for mnemonics! :smiley:

Update:

The Commonwealth Museum Palace I linked earlier is part of a larger “Memory City”. The link in the main article now links to that. In that article, I have added a few links to both the Museum Palace and 3 new palaces in the full list of Palaces! Some palaces are listed, but their names are not a link. These will be added in the future.

For easy clicking, here are all the links I have updated

I managed to get the time to record and add three more palaces. Links have been added to the main post as well. With these three palaces I got to do more of what I want this series to become: A source of inspiration that shows how you can turn various things into loci.

The Valentine Detective Agency is structured in various sections of 5 loci each, some loci are large, some are small.

Publick Occurences is an unorganized palace, every section has a random number of loci.

Sanctuary Radio is a tiny palace with densely packed loci.

Memory Palace: 05. Valentine Detective Agency - https://mymemorypalaces.wordpress.com/2019/08/28/valentine-detective-agency/ (45 Loci, structured)

Memory Palace: 06. Publick Occurences - https://mymemorypalaces.wordpress.com/2019/08/28/publick-occurences/ (45 Loci, unstructured)

Memory Palace: 07. Sanctuary Radio - https://mymemorypalaces.wordpress.com/2019/08/28/sanctuary-radio/ (40 Loci, dense)

Note:

Thank you for the 10 likes! I just noticed that I recieved the ‘nice topic’ reward because of that :smiley:

Another thing that I want this to be is a page where people can make inspiration requests. I still have around 40 palaces to build in -this- fallout 4 build (there will be at least 4 more, each with their around 50 memory palaces). So if you have specific requests like “I would like to see a regular sized palace with 150 loci” or even a palace with specific loci or a specific theme/look because you are stuck on something, let me know!
