Here, the Courier recovers after being shot in the head and robbed of the platinum chip by Benny, then is subsequently rescued by Victor. The Courier survives the gunshot after being 'patched up' in Doc Mitchell's house.

BackgroundEdit

Goodsprings is a small, struggling wasteland town that has been a mining community since the early days of Nevada's U.S. history. There are only a dozen or so people still in the town due to trade along the Long 15 drying up. Signs along the highway direct people to Goodsprings, but they do the town little good if no one is on the highway to read them.[1]

The town has never been that populous to begin with, and the troubles with geckos, coyotes, radscorpions and bandits such as Powder Gangers haven't made it any more appealing to newcomers. A few people have holed up in the town to wait things out and hope for the best, but overall Goodsprings is a quiet, 'sleepy' town. It could almost be considered a ghost town, if it weren't for these few odd settlers attempting to eke out a way of life among the ruined ranch homes.

The residents of the town come to the Courier's aid after a securitron named Victor witnessed the Courier's shooting and burial over by the cemetery. Local activities include going to the spring (Goodsprings source), hunting geckos, mole rats, and coyotes, and loafing around in the Prospector Saloon.[1]

LayoutEdit

Doc Mitchell's house is located in the western portion of town. The player character begins their journey here, after being in Doc Mitchell's care for several days. The Prospector Saloon and Goodsprings General Store with a Mojave Express dropbox located outside are situated at the northeast end of town. Several settlers live in the town's houses, and farm bighorners.

There are several locations in Goodsprings which can be used for safe storage. Everything except the beds in Doc Mitchell's house is considered unowned. Victor's shack is also considered unowned, but has few storage containers. The house due south of the saloon is quite convenient as it is close to the fast travel point. It has open beds and safe containers. Easy Pete sleeps there nightly and a settler may wander in, but one bed is usually free to sleep in. Finally, the crates between the Saloon and General Store are unowned and situated conveniently close to the workbench.

Goodsprings contains an abandoned schoolhouse with some low level loot and a Stealth Boy. An abandoned gas station west of Doc Mitchell's home contains some minor loot and can be used as a safehouse if needed, as it contains a bed and some safe storage. The gas station is locked until the Courier is sent there to meet with Ringo.

An invisible border encircles Goodsprings, the cemetery, and Goodsprings Source. Crossing the border for the first time triggers menus which allows one to redo the Courier's looks, SPECIAL statistics, Traits, and Skills.

1Travelers continued to stop by Goodsprings Source for water on the Long 15, but rarely would anyone venture into the ruins of Goodsprings itself. Those who did were almost always tourists, come to visit the graveyard where the Courier 'rose from the dead.'

NotesEdit

  • As the starting location, the Goodsprings area and related quests offer examples of all the non-combat skill-based checks found in the game: Barter 20 (Trudy); Barter 25 (Chet); Explosives 25 (Easy Pete); Medicine 30 (Doc); Repair 20 (Trudy's); Repair 25 (Doc's); Science 25 (Victor, Doc's, Trudy's, schoolhouse); Sneak 25 (Trudy); Speech 20 (Joe Cobb); Speech 25 (Chet, Trudy); Speech 30 (Doc); and Lockpick 75 (Trudy's safe, which can also be opened via terminal. There are several other locks that have a Lockpick skill requirement of 0-50).
  • The town of Goodsprings is one of the three Goodsprings locations (the others being Goodsprings source and Goodsprings Cemetery) that make up the tutorial area. The tutorial boundary exists whether or not the player accepts Sunny Smiles' offer of her training. The first time, only, that the player leaves the tutorial area, there will be an opportunity to rebuild the Courier character, including S.P.E.C.I.A.L. stats and all perks. It is possible, with the correct preliminary character build, to pass every one of the skill checks and quests offered in the town before rebuilding the Courier in a completely different way upon leaving town.
  • Once one clears the town, it is safe from hostile creatures. Bark scorpions from Goodsprings Cemetery may still wander in, though, and geckos will routinely spawn at Goodsprings Source.
  • The state flag of Nevada flies above the entrance to Doc Mitchell's house. It is the only instance of an animated Nevada state flag in the game, and it's one of the few instances of the flag in-game (another being the state border sign found in Nipton).
  • According to a front page newspaper story, a kind doctor was murdered in the town before the Great War, shocking the citizens.
  • There are crates marked with three X's located along the front, side, and back of the Goodsprings General Store that can be relocated and used as permanent storage containers. The original content of the crates never respawns, so any items placed inside them will be safe. These crates may be bumped into by the player and sent flying a distance, sometimes disappearing completely into the side of a building so losing all contents with no way of getting them back. The two dumpsters at the side of the general store are safe to store items in and don't have the problem of being bumped and lost. (However, during Ghost Town Gunfight, residents - particularly Sunny Smiles - will help themselves to any weapons stored in the dumpsters.) The crates along the front are 'owned' and removing previously placed items from them is considered stealing.
  • There is a trailer behind Chet's store that contains two crates and a bed. Anything placed in the crates will stay there indefinitely. It's usually available for sleeping, though sometimes Easy Pete may be sleeping there himself.

AppearancesEdit

Goodsprings appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

  • Goodsprings is based on the real-life location of the same name.[2] Several landmarks – such as the saloon, store, schoolhouse, cemetery, and windmill – are all present in real life and reproduced with a decent degree of accuracy in-game.
  • It is entirely possible that Goodsprings may have been called 'Noso' during development phases, which may have been short for 'No Soliciting,' like Novac is short for 'No Vacancy.' This is namely due to the file naming structure of the buildings used in Goodsprings.[3]

BugsEdit

PCXbox 360 Sometimes if you fast travel from Goodsprings to the Goodsprings source, the game will crash. (This bug only seems to start happening after you complete Ghost Town Gunfight and always happens the next time you try to do so after doing said mission.) [verified]

  • Xbox 360 In Goodsprings, entering buildings or saving after returning from the NCRCF causes the game to crash. [verified]

If you have played Fallout: New Vegas you will know that the developers of the game didn't want you to go straight to The Strip. They don't put an invisible wall in the way though, or a barricade, like any other developer would do. Oh no. Instead, they put in a hell of a lot of Deathclaws and Super mutants; making it *almost* impossible to get through.

Luckily, however, I came across these two videos on youtube about how to get to The Strip straight from Goodsprings, without even doing any main quests. It's really a great discovery, so I thought I would share them with you. The original founder and author of these videos is a guy called KryllKiller. He has a great youtube channel, its worth a look.

What you will need (kryllkiller didn't specify this, so I thought I'd help him):

  • a stealth boy (you can get this right at the start from the school remains in Goodsprings)
  • a decent sneak skill (the higher it is, the easier this method is)
  • A neutral or good relationship with the NCR. (this helps as you need to get into Camp Mccarran, run by the NCR. They will shoot on sight if you have a bad relationship with them)

The videos to get you to the Strip are down below. Thanks for reading and I hope I helped!

PS: I didn't write this up because the route to The Strip is too precise to write; it would take forever.

Here is the first video: How to get to New Vegas early

Here is the second video: How to Get into The Strip. This directly follows the last video.

  • Great hub, learnt something new! I can finally get to the strip straight away rather than going thyrough no vac and stuff. Thanks

The Fallout 4: New Vegas mod project was announced in August last year, and firmly grabbed my attention last month with these dynamic weather screens. Now, the mod has a new trailer that teases its perk system, a shotgun showdown in Goodsprings, and the return of NV's be-nice-or-be-shunned karma system. The Mojave Wasteland never looked so good.

As you'll see below, the player starts out on the peripheral of the mod's reimagining of opening town Goodsprings, before tinkering with Radio New Vegas via their Pip-Boy, assuming perks as per the original game, and ultimately gunning down what appears to be an innocent civilian. Cue some serious shunning.

Fallout 4: New Vegas is clearly an ambitious undertaking, but it's one I'm already very much looking forward to. As we reported last month, its creators aren't tying themselves down to a hard release date/window just yet and are always on the lookout for new recruits.

When it's done, Fallout 4: New Vegas aims to recreate everything from Obsidian's 2010 Mojave Wasteland—including all of the game's original quests and story, 'with additional gameplay elements and systems from the new and improved engine.'

Incidentally, Fallout 4: New Vegas ranked second place in ModDB's Best Upcoming Mods awards.

The Goodsprings source is a location in the Mojave Wasteland.

Background[edit | edit source]

Located south-south-east of Goodsprings, the spring provided the town with pure, potable water for centuries and continues to do so as far as 2281.

Layout[edit | edit source]

The wells that tap into the spring are spread out over a larger area, which can be roughly divided into three areas: The wells, the campsite, and the overlook. Together with Goodsprings and the Goodsprings cemetery, the source makes up the tutorial area. Journeying beyond will result in the game offering a chance at remaking the player's character, marking the end of the tutorial.

The four water wells are close to Goodsprings. There are three - one broken and two functional - on the upper level and one on the lower level. There's a fully-repaired shovel leaning against one of the water troughs. The lower water well is also where the player finds a Goodsprings settler attacked by geckos during Back in the Saddle. All water wells provide endless rad-free water.

The campsite features three fireplaces that can be used for crafting, a camper with Barton Thorn, who will attempt to con the player into clearing geckos at a nearby ridge, so that he can loot the bodies there, and Sunny Smiles, who will teach the player the basics of crafting. Afterwards, the marker for this area makes for a good fast travel area, as it spawns the player in front of a wrecked car with a metal briefcase in the trunk. The briefcase doesn't respawn, allowing for safe storage of crafting components for use with the nearby campsites.

The overlook is the furthest area from Goodsprings, providing an overview of the spring wells and the campsite below. The overlook will have several geckos skulking about, a challenge at lower levels. It can be accessed by a small path leading upwards from the broken radio tower at the camp site, and lead to a small encampment on top (mind the broc flower on the way). A dead prospector is found on the bed in the camp. If Wild Wasteland is enabled, the prospector is replaced with Johnny, four red balls, and five ace cards, in an elaborate reference to the Zybourne Clock meme from Something Awful.

Notable loot[edit | edit source]

  • A fully repaired shovel is right beside one of the wells, slightly obscured by a bush.

I moseyed into town, oh, ten, fifteen years ago? Before that, I.. hmmm, I can't quite seem to recall. Odd. Anyway, it's a right peaceful town and I reckon it's as fine a place to settle as any.

— Victor discussing Goodsprings, Fallout: New Vegas

Goodsprings is a town in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. This is where the Courier recovers from being shot in the head, after being rescued by Victor and 'patched up' at Doc Mitchell's house.

Background[edit | edit source]

Named after Joseph Good, a rancher whose cattle used the spring at the southeastern foothills of Spring Mountains, Goodsprings history is tied closely to the freshwater spring the town takes its name from[1] and the rich deposits of lead, silver, copper, zinc and gold that were exploited for decades. The small mining settlement was largely tent cabins centered around a mill and a post office before the town was officially established in the early 1900s, during the mining boom across Nevada. Platted by mining companies from Salt Lake City, Goodsprings boomed, aided by the construction of a railroad between 1910 and 1911. More infrastructure followed, including the Goodsprings schoolhouse and Prospector Saloon in 1913 (the latter as Pioneer Saloon). The boom wound down after World War I and the economic crisis that followed, briefly picking up after World War II.[2]

After the Great War, Goodsprings was abandoned, but its springs have not dried up. It was settled shortly before 2281, under a New California Republic grant in order to develop a low-risk mining environment near a reliable source of potable water, the Goodsprings source. Beyond supplying water to Republican miner, trappers, and farmers, it was a quiet, small town that saw little activity, until a series of setbacks shut down the Long 15. They caused the town's population to drop to about a dozen after the prison break at the NCR Correctional Facility unleashed the powder gangers on the region, while a deathclaw infestation at the Quarry Junction all but blocked off the Long 15 north. [3] As a result, the town's primary products, namely water, bighorner meat, and skins, have a hard time reaching traders. Signs at the highway, pointing travelers towards Goodsprings, are simply of no use if there's no one to read them.[4] To make matters worse, most traders simply pushed through toward either Primm or New Vegas, unless they're in dire need of supplies.[5][6]

While Goodsprings survived the recent upheavals and its settlers continue to scratch out an existence among the ruined ranch houses, trouble is keen on finding a way into the town. While the deathclaws don't come near, the Powder Gangers led by Joe Cobb do and have been trying to find a Crimson Caravan trader named Ringo, who sought shelter in Goodsprings after his caravan was attacked on the highway. geckos and other wildlife are also a constant nuisance, finding their way into town, dipping from its water supply and occasionally attacking residents and bighorners.

Layout[edit | edit source]

Doc Mitchell's House is located in the west. It will be the first house you'll come out of when you start the game. The Prospector Saloon and Goodsprings general store with a Mojave Express dropbox located outside are to the north. Several settlers live in the town's houses, and farm bighorners.

There are three locations in Goodsprings which can be used for safe storage. Everything in Doc Mitchell's house is considered unowned, except the bed. Victor's shack is also considered unowned, but has few storage containers. The house due south of the Saloon is the most convenient, as it is the closest to the fast travel point. It has open beds and safe containers. Easy Pete sleeps there nightly, and a settler may wander in, but one bed is usually free.

Goodsprings contains an abandoned schoolhouse with some loot. An abandoned gas station west of Doc Mitchell's home contains some minor loot and can be used as a safehouse, as it contains a bed and safe storage, but it is locked until the Courier goes there to meet Ringo.

Buildings[edit | edit source]

Inhabitants[edit | edit source]

  • Doc Mitchell
  • Sunny Smiles and Cheyenne
  • Ringo (Until the completion of Ghost Town Gunfight or Run Goodsprings Run)

Notable loot[edit | edit source]

  • Chinese Army: Special Ops Training Manual: The house where Trudy and Sunny Smiles sleep contains a copy of the skill book on a small book shelf opposite the front entrance. The skill book must be stolen.
  • Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap: Can be found in the above-mentioned house on the kitchen counter, next to a few Sunset Sarsaparilla bottles.
  • Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap: West of the General Store is a white house with a vegetable garden outside. The bottle cap is inside, on the table in the bedroom; next to a chessboard and an empty Sunset Sarsaparilla bottle.
  • A Stealth Boy: In the Goodsprings schoolhouse inside a locked safe. The safe can be opened with a Lockpick skill of 25, or by hacking the nearby terminal (Science 25).
  • A copy of Lad's Life can be found in the storage room of the same house with the second Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap, on the step-ladder right before the room with the star bottle cap. (Must be stolen)
  • Meeting People: A copy can be found in the Prospector Saloon, on a crate near the side door closest to the entrance. (Must be stolen) A second copy can be found under a shelf in a camper north of Prospector Saloon. A third copy can be found in the Goodsprings schoolhouse, on the floor near the safe by the ruined school desk.
  • A copy of Fixin' Things is on the bathroom sink of the first house Southeast of Mitchell's house
  • Programmer's Digest and 1 Salesman Weekly in the school house. One by the broken terminal and the other lying on the floor in the corner by broken shelves.
  • 1 Programmer's Digest lying on the counter next to the lockers in the School House.
  • A doctor's bag and a copy of Boxing Times can be found in the gas station to the right of Mitchell's house. The Boxing Times is on a shelf, and the doctor's bag on the floor against the back wall.
  • A single shotgun and some 20 gauge shotgun shells inside Sunny Smiles and Trudy's house.
  • 24 5.56mm rounds: South of the Prospector Saloon is a water tower with a large tank. The ammunition is on a wooden plank in the pile of rubble in the adjacent ruined house frame, on the West side.
  • Random skill magazines can be found in the various mailboxes in the town, although most will contain miscellaneous items or be empty.

Related quests[edit | edit source]

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • As the starting location for the player, the Goodsprings area and related quests offer examples of all the non-combat skill-based checks found in the game: Barter 25 (Chet, Trudy); Explosives 25 (Easy Pete); Lockpick 75 (Trudy's safe which can be opened via computer, otherwise 50 for a safe in one of the houses, and just 25 for schoolhouse, gas station); Medicine 30 (Doc); Repair 25 (Doc's, Trudy's); Science 25 (Victor, Doc's, Trudy's, schoolhouse); Sneak 25 (Trudy); Speech 30 (Doc, Trudy, Chet, Joe Cobb).
  • It's possible for nearby enemies in adjacent areas to appear in the town. This can happen if an enemy is drawn near the town and killed. When they re-spawn, if they are close enough to detect friendly, non-player characters (or creatures they are antagonistic towards), they may investigate and attack instead of moving back to their default spawning point as normal. The threat posed is usually very minor (coyote), but it does have the potential to be very disastrous if very dangerous creatures (giant radscorpions, deathclaw) are led too close to town.
  • The town of Goodsprings is one of the three Goodsprings locations (the others being Goodsprings source and Goodsprings cemetery) that make up the tutorial area. The tutorial boundary exists whether or not the player accepts Sunny Smiles offer of training.
  • The state flag of Nevada flies above the entrance to Doc Mitchell's house. It is the only instance of an animated Nevada state flag in the game, and additionally one of the few instance of the flag in game (another being the state border sign found in Nipton).
  • According to a front page newspaper story, before the War, a kind doctor was murdered in the town, shocking the citizens.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Goodsprings is based on the real-life location of the same name.[7] Several landmarks, such as the saloon, store, schoolhouse and windmill are all present in real-life and reproduced with a decent degree of accuracy in-game.
  • The Prospector Saloon's real-life counterpart's name is the Pioneer's Saloon. Though not mentioned in-game the real-life Pioneer's Saloon has a mineshaft built under it which isn't the case for the Prospector Saloon in Fallout: New Vegas.
  • Goodsprings was designed by Eric Fenstermaker and Travis Stout.[8]
  • Megan Parks was responsible for layout, prop placement, decoration, terrain shaping, and vistas in this location.[9]
Spare Us the Cutter
  • There is code and references to deleted quest objectives in VMS16b (Run Goodsprings Run) that refer to freeing the bighorners in town. The bighorners also have an unused AI package for this event. It's unclear why the player would have to do this (presumably they would then cause chaos and/or attack the people of Goodsprings?).

    Mitchell: 'This here's Goodsprings. Named after the water we got here, just down the road to the southeast. Goodsprings Source, they call it. It's a quiet town, and that's how we like it. We don't go looking for trouble, though occasionally it sees fit to come looking for us.'

  3. Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide Collector's Edition p.43: 'Goodsprings
    Goodsprings is a small, barely active town that has been a mining community since the early days of Nevada. Most recently, it was settled under a grant from NCR to develop a low-risk mining environment near a reliable source of potable water. Even so, there are only a dozen or so people in the town due to trade along the Long 15 drying up. Signs along the highway direct people to Goodsprings, but they do the town no good if no one is on the highway to read them.
    The residents of the town come to your aid after a Securitron named Victor witnessed your shooting and burial over by the Cemetery. There are few people in Goodsprings. It has never been that populace, and the troubles with Deathclaws, Raiders, and Powder Gangers hasn't made it any more appealing. A few folks have hold up here to wait things out, but overall its quite 'sleepy'; almost a Ghost Town if there weren't the odd settler, attempting to eke out an existence among the ruined ranch homes. Local activities include going to the spring (Goodsprings Source), hunting Geckos, Mole Rats, and Coyotes, and loafing around in the Prospector Saloon.'

  5. The Courier: 'Does Goodsprings get many visitors?'
    Trudy: 'Mostly traders looking to buy Bighorner meat and hides. The traders are the main reason the general store manages to stay in business. Most travelers heading south on in the I-15 just push on towards Primm unless they're in desperate need of supplies.'
    (Trudy's dialogue)
  6. The Courier: 'What else can you tell me about Goodsprings?'
    Mitchell: 'Well, there's a general store just up the road. Run by a fella named Chet. He don't got nothing fancy, but he's got your basics covered. If you're looking to wet your whistle, just past Chet's is the Prospector Saloon. The bartender there, Trudy, knows everyone in town. Other than that, there's not much to see. Just people trying to scratch out a living.'
