Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

The Boulder Dome Level 1 is the main level / first sub-level of the Boulder Dome. Besides the Secret Tunnel Entrance, the only working access points lead here. The interior is massive, spanning almost 4 city blocks in diameter.


The layout description is in accordance with the numbered picture to the right:

  • 1: East Truck Garage Entrance - Eddie Galenski uses this to get his truck in and out; Jackals have a camp here, trying to get into the dome
  • 2: Galenski Family Quarters - Where Hellen, Eddie, and their six kids live
  • 3: Lobby Entrance -
  • 4: Baggers Quarters - the quarters of the now locked out Rad-Away addicted soldiers (Main Article: Baggers)
  • 5: Storage - some medical supplies; some miscellaneous stuff the scientists left for Eddie to barter with
  • 6: Main Bathroom
  • 7: West Truck Garage Entrance - sealed closed because the Dome is in hibernation
  • 8: Cafeteria/Kitchen mainly a dispenser of nutrient paste (they don't really have any food)
  • 9: Quarantine Center Entrance - a locked entrance, requires passcodes for the console; this is how Victor Presper and the grad students got in
  • 10: NCR Quarters - Where Victor Presper and his soldiers stay when they take over for Part 1 of the game
  • 11: Hydroponics Garden - just a cement basin due to the problems the scientists have had growing things; the PC can grow things with the right combination of Science and Outdoorsman skills
  • E: Exit/Elevator - lead to lower sub-levels of the Dome


Boulder Dome Level 1 did not appear nor was mentioned in any published games, but was going to appear in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios.
