I want to enjoy Red, but I can't because everybody always crams them absolutely full with survivors and it completely detracts from the mood.

Green, turn everything into Australia on steroids.
>all plants and trees are covered in venomous thorns that would put hogweed and the gympie tree to shame
>all animal species incredibly venomous or super highly aggressive, usually both
>mutant highly aggressive carnivorous plants that are ambush predators, like giant venus fly traps that can eat large animals and people
>all the edible plant species are toxic in one way or another, thus you can't eat any plants raw, you have to leech the toxins out first, just like with acorns IRL
>toxic fungal spores everywhere, like black mold on magic steroids, some of them devour animal and people brains, creating mold zombies that they pilot around until they explode, to spread the spores so the fungi can reproduce
>everyone hates spring because the pollen that gets spread around through the air is highly mind altering, think the worst shroom trip in the history of mankind combined with PCP
>giant insects all over the place, people actually like them because a lot of the larger ones are non venomous/toxic, so they breed them for food, but some are highly aggressive and kill people, like highly aggressive ant colonies where each soldier ant is the size of leopard gecko, they can swarm over and devour entire villages
>giant eagles (like harpy eagiles IRL) that snatch up young human children for food right out of their parents arms when too far away from the safety of the village
>giant flightless predatory birds (like the extinct terror bird or a carnivorous ostrich/cassowary) that hunt people and large animals, some species hunt during the day, others are nocturnal and are silent as an IRL owl
TL;DR Green is done best if it's as absolutely lethal in every way as it is beautiful.

There is a next-level autism for this. Bunch of Pollacks made a decade or so ago a post-apo game running on cliches and one of the core rules of the game is picking colours of your scenario. Not as a metaphore, but literal colouring and with rules and objectives related with it.

Technology has overtaken the environment and killer robots are always a threat. Any humans left live in isolated pocket, scurrying through the pipes and industrial runoff like rats. Life is a day to day struggle to find food in a world that just doesn't make it anymore. You're lucky if you can find a spot to sleep where you won't be torn apart by some robot.

What’s stupid about the Fallout franchise is that everyone who played the Bethesda-era games seems to not realize that the only reason it was a desert in Fallout 1 and 2 was because it mostly too place in Southern California and Nevada, which are ALREADY fucking deserts, while the northern areas were supposed to be heavily forested and filled with crazy irradiated mutants.

They should be bright and colorful. all shades of the rainbow, I need good contrast. Anyone who thinks that removing color makes things more realistic or serious is wither an idiot or colorblind. Some times using grey scale can be useful but recently I've been noticing a trend of artists too lazy to design anything that catches your eye using "gritty realism" as an excuse.

if ALL vegetation died humans would not have lasted as long as they did. If all plants had been destroyed by the black rains the soil would still be far too fucked to plant in, and the nursery would have been far too small to have enough plant matter to sustain the remaining humans let alone the whole ecosystem. You could argue that the current ecosystems are sustained by unaffected underground tubers but again anything powerful enough to kill all plantlife would have destroyed to soil, those tubers would also need nutrients and would not be able to sustain themselves without sending up sprouts to harvest the sun. It's just bad writing todd.

>"I don't think the world of Fallout had a nuclear winter. It's part of the genre - miles upon miles of scorched earth, inhabited by slathering, bloodthirsty mutants." - Chris Avellone, Fallout Bible

The Fallout world is not meant to be realistic in it's depiction of radiation or nuclear war. It is inspired by 50's pulp comics, and as such shows the post-nuclear world through that lens rather than realistic environmental effects.

It also works better that way. The desert wasteland aesthetic has always gelled far better with the retrofuturism americana than boring realistic overgrowth ever could.
