The M.A.S. facility in Splendid Valley, home of the Alicorns and our good ol' Master Goddess.
This is how I've always seen it, since the outside has never really been described, and even playing Fallout 2 didn't help. So, imagination. :iconimaginationplz:
The red flare on top of the facility comes from a library on the internet.

Next stop, Ponyville. Then, Appleloosa. Then...dunno. Any suggestions ?

Although I imagined it differently, this is a great take on Maripony! Well done.
My problem is probably that the perspective and the glowing light at the tip of tower very much remind me of the Yamatai radio tower in Tomb Raider 2013 ;)
But that isn't your fault of course!
Great picture nonetheless.

I often go back and reread the descriptions for every location, but surprisingly, Maripony wasn't described AT ALL. The story just tells you that the party is being brought inside the base and...that's it. I don't know if Kkat had such a good idea of it in her mind that she didn't feel like it needed to be described but...yeah, if you never played Fallout 1 and  2, it's kinda hard to imagine it. So I came up with my own design.

Never played a Tomb Raider game, so I can't relate. :p
And thanks !

Could be she imagined it like the vats-chamber in FO1...
I think my own mental image is influenced by that as well.
But then again it's all fused with pony-hightech/high-magic.
It's really interesting how different people imagine the base dependent on the feeling they got from reading the non-description.

so this place is more like a "cloning" base? :-? (Confused)

An Alicorn producing facility, actually. Don't know whether or not you've read the story, so I won't spoil you much more.

I though that that maripony base had an elevator that when underground and looked like it did in FO1 (only the entrance wasn't like fallout, only this)

Huhu, you're right, but as said previously in other comments, this is my vision of Maripony. :)
There was no description of the exterior part of the base in Fallout: Equestria, so everyone imagined it in their own way. I played Fallout 1 & 2, but somehow, Maripony looks different in my mind. But it doesn't have to affect your canon, after all, I don't want to ruin everyone's ideas. :D

Interesting look, but I had the impression of a facility with vats of stuff deep inside.

Well, the Goddess and the EMP vats are...inside, so you can't see them ! :iconohjoyplz:

This is an epic drawing that really changes my view of Maripony, but the only problem is the place upon which this site is based exists in both Fallout 1 and 2. Did you never go to Mariposa, aka Army Base or whatever it was called west of Vault 13?

I sure did, and I remember it was...bigger than this, on solid ground, surrounded by some fences and tents, and a lot of Super mutants...
But again, the facility wasn't really described in the story, and this how I see it ! It doesn't have to be exactly like yours, that's the magic of stories and vague descriptions : Imagination ! :iconohjoyplz:
Thank you for your opinion. :)

I'll focus more on sidestory locations (Hoofington, Route 52, Dise, etc...) once I'm done with the actual story. I plan on drawing Appleloosa & co, but Little Apple...isn't that a location of one of your stories ? °°
