Fallout Shelter: Start-Up Guide

So I have recently become addicted to the mobile game Fallout Shelter, released by Bethesda Softworks last year. Ahead of the release of Fallout 4 in November. Even with this game now being a year old, it is still going strong on the market store.

There are many different approaches to this game, depending on how you fancy playing. It wasn’t easy starting the game as there’s a lot to understand. I thought I would share my top seven tips that I wish I knew when I built my first Vault.

Vault 101

1. Don’t expand too quickly

It might seem fun adding extra rooms when your caps are rolling in. But the more rooms you have, the more electric that needs to be produced. You only want to expand when your Dwellers are increasing. Before you add specialist rooms, make sure you’ve got enough resources being produced. As those caps could have been used to increase your resources.

2. Build Food and Water rooms close to Power Rooms

If you run low on Power, the rooms furthest away will loose their power first. Meaning those rooms won’t be able to be used by your Dwellers. If these are your Food or Water rooms, Dwellers won’t be able to produce these resources. If they are close, they will be the last to loose power. You will hopefully be able to control it before it gets too low.

3. Have guards at your Vault Door

You are able to have a maximum of two guards at your Vault Door. Try having these Dwellers the highest level as possible. They will have more health than others. It’s good to have guards here as they can defend your Vault quiet well. Allow them to have your better weapons as you’ll have regular raids.

4. Merging rooms

You are able to merge rooms which increases how many Dwellers can produce that resources. Also producing more of that resource at one time. Remember, merge first then upgrade the room. Saves you having to upgrade both of the rooms as they don’t merge until they are the same level.

5. Assigning Dwellers to the correct room

When new Dwellers reach your vault, they have stronger skills that allow them to produce resources quicker. When you’re hovering a Dweller over a room, the higher the number, the better they are for that room. Make sure you know who is best for which room so you can produce your resources quickly.

6. Don’t rush rooms too much

You are able to rush rooms to produce their resources quicker but if those Dwellers don’t have good skills, the room will fail. Leading to an attack or a fire. Don’t have too many unsuccessful rushes as the life of your Dwellers will quickly decrease. Having one person in each room will be helpful as weapons do more damage than fists.

7. Explore the Wasteland

It is never too early to explore the Wasteland, it’s the best way to acquire weapons and outfits that can boost your SPECIAL stats of your Dwellers. It’s best to do this early on as with receiving the outfits, you can increase the chances of a successful rushing. Also enabling different Dwellers to be in different rooms with the use of outfits.

So that’s it guys! I know this is a little different from my usual lifestyle piece but I am completely addicted to this currently! Still after a year of it being released. I had a hard time starting in the beginning so I hope these points have helped someone. If you have anymore tips or if you wish to know anything else please comment below!

H&M Drake Circus Relaunch

Along with my friend Corinne Bygrave from Organic By Nerve, we attended the relaunch of our local H&M in Drake Circus. For the past three months H&M has been turned upside down while builders have been transforming the store. Every time I adventured in, it was different from the previous time. As they didn’t want to loose out on business throughout this time, the store was kept open.

It was nice to see the store slowly transforming in front of your eyes. They have changed the interior to make it look more like stores you would find overseas. Every time you popped in there it felt as if you were seeing an exclusive to the new look. If it wasn’t for Facebook I don’t believe I would have known about their relaunch as there didn’t seem to be much plastered on their windows leading up to the event.

This was a must event for not only me to attend but attend with my bestie Corinne as we just love all things H&M. We always seem to be shopping in there whether it’s for some really cool logo tees or just some basics leggings! We always seem to pick up something we both like so as soon as I told her we planned to attend. H&M decided to make a good party out of their relaunch.

I had planned to be outside the store pretty early as I thought it would be quite busy, especially with the good perks that came along. Everyone who attended received a special goody-bag that included a MASSIVE shopping bag, a H&M umbrella and something that always comes in handy, a lint roller. Not forgetting though! The first 200 hundred people to queue up would receive 25% off their shopping!

The relaunch was just one massive party, music blaring out from the speakers from the live DJ, H&M staff getting their groove on with a performance before the store officially opened to the public and balloons, there were even balloons outside. Watching the staff perform was interesting as they were all smiling and laughing together. Showing that they are all one big happy family and are excited to see their new store open.

After the grand opening, finally we were allowed in to see the finished work. The interior was all white and crisp, it felt like walking into a brand new store. Even though there’s no windows to the outdoor world, the store felt very light and airy. Compared to what it was previously you could tell it was a new store, everything was super clean and organised. After months of chaos, it was nice to see the store back to normal.

H&M Relaunch 3

The one massive thing I was disappointed with, every time previously I went into H&M there was always something that jumped out at me. This time though, absolutely nothing! Which was very disappointing as I wanted to take full advantage of the 25% off everything. In the end I did manage to pick up some cute little pieces. It took me longer than I thought and it wasn’t a hard decision to make.

It’s all good me saying how great the new store looks, but see it for yourself. I was able to take a few photos while shopping around. Believe me though! It was not this quiet within the store. So take a peak at this exclusive new store below!

So that’s it guys! Hope you liked the little sneak peak of my home city’s new H&M store. Maybe they will start changing all their stores across the United Kingdom. Will look amazing if they do.
