History

is a state located in the western region of the United States of America. The capital is Carson City and the largest city is Las Vegas. The state's nickname is the "Silver State," due to the large number of silver deposits that were discovered and mined there.

In 1952, a time-traveling Booster Gold arrived in Nevada and assisted Task Force X in safeguarding Russian astrophysicist Sergei Pushkin. By doing so, Booster corrected an error in the timestream, effectively staving off the development of manned space flight. [1]

One of the most famous cities in the state of Nevada is the "Sin City", Las Vegas. Known for its opulent gambling casinos, this was where underworld figure Anthony Gallo became a millionaire and a force to be reckoned with in the gambling industry. [2]

Reno, Nevada was the home of Michael Costner. Following the "Infinite Crisis" event, Costner became the living host to an OMAC. [3]

Also during this time, Las Vegas, Nevada was the scene of a fight between Blockbuster and teen hero Eliza Harmon, aka, Impulse. Lex Luthor stripped Harmon of her super-speed powers at a critical moment during the fight and she was killed in action. [4]

Las Vegas, Nevada was one of several key cities that came under attack during the Sinestro Corps War. [5]

In New Paradise, Nevada, two Kryptonian sleeper agents went on a "Bonnie & Clyde" inspired crime spree, robbing banks and slaughtering several police officers in the process. [6]

Alternate Realities

Earth-AD: In the continuity of "Kamandi, the Last Boy on Earth", Las Vegas, Nevada still existed, albeit in ruins. It was here that Kamandi fought the giant ape, Chaaku. [7]

What happens in the Emerald City stays in the Emerald City.

Nevada is the 36th state of the United States of America.

  • Muppets appeared in Movin' with Nancy: Nice 'n' Easy, Nancy Sinatra's 1973 Las Vegas stage show which included live versions of classic Muppet acts, such as Hugga Wugga.
  • In The Muppets' Wizard of Oz, Toto says, "What happens in the Emerald City stays in the Emerald City," a reference to a recent Las Vegas advertising campaign.

In the early 21st century, when the United States was divided into thirteen commonwealths, the former state of Nevada became part of the Southwest Commonwealth, along with Southern California and Hawaii.

Locations

New Reno, Broken Hills, Vault City and Gecko, a quite diverse collection of towns, are all in former Nevada state territory. However these towns (except Gecko) are present at Vault City Northern California Travel Log. Jules refers New Reno as side part of California also (Cee-Ay).

Two explanations of this inconsistency are possible:

Tycho's father mentioned Las Vegas and a fat mobster there. Las Vegas localization is beyond eastern edge of the Fallout worldmap (and beyond western edge of Van Buren worldmap, 30 miles north-west of Hoover Dam).

The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Hoover Dam lies on the border between Nevada and Arizona. The NCR supply train sometimes arrived to Hoover Dam from the west.

Desert Rangers

Desert Rangers were a faction living in the Nevada area during Vault Dweller times. They were descended from people who had survived the devastation of the Great War, likely living among the badlands of Nevada. This small community kept a strong survivalist contingent - so they still had some small arms and books. They probably had something like the cliff-dwelling Indians going on for their town. Tycho was one of them. The Chosen One didn't meet the Desert Rangers in the western part of Nevada (Fallout 2 area, 2241-2253 year).

Railways

In real world there are two class I railroads in Nevada:

The following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

According to Hoover Dam and Boulder design documents Hoover Dam was conected by railroads with western parts of the NCR, Fort Aradesh, Boulder and Denver.

Because of Powder Gangs operations line from Hoover Dam to Fort Aradesh become inoperable.

Appearances in games

Fallout 2 takes place partly in Nevada, as would Van Buren if it were finished and as will Fallout: New Vegas. Nevada was mentioned by Tycho in the original Fallout.

GTA

Up to date as of February 09, 2010

From Grand Theft Wiki

A Nevada in GTA San Andreas.

The Nevada is a large propeller passenger plane found in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas.

Description

The Nevada is a large plane with two radial engines. Its access door is at the back and the plane always leans tilted nose up when parked. The company name "Juank Air" is marked on it. It can be found locked in the Easter Bay International Airport in San Fierro parked on the plane taxi-zone. It is unlocked after completing Learning to Fly. The Nevada is based on the vintage Douglas DC-3, and as such is the oldest aircraft in the Grand Theft Auto series. Unlike the Dodo, Shamal, and the Skimmer, the Nevada is regularly seen flying in the sky. Also, unlike most planes, the Nevada has more than one default color.Due to its size it is great to surf the plane during multiplayer.

The Nevada is used in the mission Dam and Blast from the "Heist" strand where CJ has to plant explosives on the Sherman Dam generators that will be later detonated to disable the power supplying Caligula's Palace.

Performance

The Nevada has a decent top speed, but it has a rather long take off distance and slow acceleration. The Nevada also has good durability; it can withstand one or two homing rockets before being destroyed. Keep in mind, though, that crashing into an obstacle head-on will immediately destroy the plane.

Trivia

  • The plane's name parodies the nickname given to the military version of the DC-3 used by Allied troops during World War II. The nickname was Dakota, named after an acronym for Douglas Aircraft Company Transport Aircraft (DACoTA), the name for the Nevada however parodies US the state names, North Dakota and South Dakota with Nevada.
