    Doomsday map of USA make for a nice apocalypse world in game.

    Technically, it's a world hit by asteroid so hard it tilt Earth poles, generate heat to melt ice and raise sea level.

    Mind you , Fallout 5 set in West Coast is about gone. Fallout New Vegas 2: Gone to Iowa barely works. Or you can set Fallout 5: Apocalyptic Pirate can work too.

    The idea is an ocean hit, not continental hit. because continental hit receive and retain much energy and transfer less to melt ice.

    An ocean hit will transfer heat to melt ice.

    Also it going to tilt the Earth, so it take time to ice up the new poles, and meanwhile it's warmed up to melt the old poles. So there's a period where much more water around than the past.

    So yeah, if you setup bunker inland you have much time to move your stuffs to higher places, as it take much time to flood all those acreage (and much time to melt pole ice).

    Unless you are eating that newly raised tsunami from the ocean hit. In which case you are going to be gone in one day or at most two.

    The Atlantians were just waiting for Californians to go away, it all makes sense now.

    This could be a cool setting though, Googling "climate change rpg" and related keywords brings up nothing. You'd think there'd be more meltpunk games or just media in general given it's the new scary thing like nukes during the Cold War and whatnot.

    I'm in the Northeast U.S. so assuming the West coast idiots are actually wiped out and don't flood my town looking for handouts then it seems like a net positive.

    I live in Oklahomo, so for us the world ended back when FDR was passing out chickens for the pot. I've already got all the guns, storeable food, and backup power I need. At this point I need free time to enjoy the apocalypse.

    Seriously though, if anyone's interested, we're selling land cheap here in the south, plus cost of living is way better than it is on the coasts. If you got the dough, I suggest a few acres in the southern/Tri-State area. Zombies, hipsters and SJWs don't fare well here.

    Imagine the sheer amount of trash and rotten meat that'd be floating in the water. Not sure it'd be drinkable if you desalinate it. And then all fish goes belly up too. Not sure much life would survive it.

    For anyone that cant load the images, AND/OR care about the so-called source, it's the forbes article https://www.forbes.com/sites/jimdob...nd-the-billionaire-escape-plans/#106650f44047

    And the scenarios are asteroid hit the Earth so hard (in different places) the poles tilt and shift. With that kind of hit, maybe tectonic plate movement also possible. Thus can raise some of the lands from undersea. Thus Atlantis and Lemuria.

    Probably same as anywhere else. Though we do have lots available for energy market. Chesapeake, Devon, and others have lots to choose from - driving trucks, working oil fields, IT management, etc. Lots of gov work too, but I wouldn't suggest that anywhere unless you're already connected or desperate.

    Now we're a med-weed legal state too. So if you wanna just slack off, get stoned and work a grass counter, there's that. But like I said, it's the cost of living. In some big coast city you'd need 3 waiter/fast food jobs to barely pay the rent. Out here your cash goes quite a bit farther. It's kinda like a domestic version of converting all your money and moving to some low rent Pacific island, only with less tropical views and a lot more cows.

    The Colorado Rockies are mainly underwater and the Continental Divide is broken but most of Florida is still dry land?

    This is silly as some maps like this I drew when I was like 11.

    The intention seem to be tectonic plate of europe and/or africa push against north american plate thus raise up Atlantis and some eastern coast's terrain. Note Cuba get expansion.
