My idea would be to have multiple food based vaults
Idea 1- only food is toast and the vault remains locked for 50 years - goal - to see what extremes man would go through to make something so bland into something that they could actually enjoy every day - Prediction - Cannibalism .
Idea 2/3- Bunch of strict meat eater locked in a vault for 30 year with no other food source but Vegatables/ Bunch of strict Plant eater locked in a vault for 30 years with nothing but meat.goal of both is to see how long till conversion. prediction for 2- canabalism for the most part till the realize conversion is the only way to survive. prediction for 3- starvation for the most part conversion is the only way to survive
Idea 4 -completely empty vault but completely stocked the door is jammed shut but there is another entrance to the vault hidden nearby, those meant for this vault survive the initial blast but will ghoulify due to irradiated FEV unless they find a way in. they know that there is a secret entrance but they dont know where -goal is to see how long it takes for them to actually get in the vault - prediction - most of them will have long since gone feral before any of the sane ones find an entrance.
Vault filled with only compulsive liars and is a truth based system. Can't buy that lamp? Tell them that you can pay later and they have to honour it. Also they aren't told that anyone else is a compulsive liar so they think they're the only sly bastard in there. Imagin someone in court?
Prediction: they figure out that everyone is a liar and bring order, or the vault falls into poverty and chaos.
50 people, sparse supplies but no weapons.
Not one of the 50 people share a language, only monolingual people will be selected, computers and necessary technologies will all be using pictograms and other forms of non-lingual visual communication.
Experiment to see if the tower of babel story could have true, that the best way to make people not able to cooporate is to make them incapable of speaking to one another.
Hypothesis: Humans will develop hybrid language, or an entirely new one.
>one massive vault consist of multiple mini vaults
>each mini vault is unique it is own way, no mini vault is alike
>there's a mini vault for making inhabitants like cars, sports, games, or just anything random by propaganda
>also through propaganda, make mini vaults think that their exit doors lead to the outside world
>open all mini vaults at the same time after several years
>never open the exit of the actual massive vault
better idea, open the vault when the final minivault is left standing over the what they think is better war, or they reach absolute peace. until one or the other the main vault stays sealed
>vault consists of one regular, stereotypical poster from every 4chan board and one regular, stereotypical poster from each of the 60 most popular sub-leddits (4chan has just over 60 boards)
I like this anon's idea >>557124751
or alternatively, the door can only opened from the outside once all the minivaults are opened. Wanderers can choose to close the door, leave it open or stay inside locking himself in with the vault dwellers.
[spoiler]I was trying to depict 4chin in a vault setting, I think I messed up somewhere. kek[/spoiler]
Which one was the vault with the puppets? That one creeped me the fuck out.
My idea is a Vault that has full capacity to observe the outside world safely, but when they do, the Vault is flooded with radiation. How long can the people contain their curiosity?
/v/ had this idea for vault 120. Everyone gets a small, single occupant apartment. Food and water are delivered via pipe. On all sides of the apartment are small, head sized holes so that neighbors can speak, exchange goods, or even fuck. Every 10 days however, a series of mechanisms rotates the apartments around randomly, so you may never see your former neighbor again.
Then people just started shitting into each others rooms. Sometimes people wait and stab the asshole of the shitters. Then of course, there's a group of people called skinnies. They starve them selves far beyond the point of emaciation. They do this so they can dislocate their joints and squeeze through the holes at night to kill.
It was actually a really cool idea

Vault 21 involves all choices being solved with gambling, and it lead to them living up to and through being "annexed" by house.
1 dweller sacrificed a month is just like Vault 11, dey all ded
fuckton of weapons laying around was Vault 34, and it created the boomers.
Vault 68 and 69 has the 999 men/1 woman and 999 women/1 man
The only thing created is the inclusion of faggotry enabled by a brief lull in the haze brought on by all the cocksucking OP is indulging in.
The superjew has to resort to covert ops to do his jewing. People's items and currency go missing and no one can ever figure out who it is, instead everyone accusing everyone else of being a shill

a massive cockblock huh? only result of this vault would be finding out how much explosives it take to blow the door off a vault, without harming the inhabitants
thus the goal of finding out how much it can take, although i think a continuous stream from a couple hundred plasma casters could get the job done, brotherhood of "steel" about to get put to use
No one would waste so much ammo. Not as long as they don't know how the people inside will react, and having bigger problems and better uses for that ammunition on the outside.
this event is half of the reason behind the NCR/BoS conflict actually, NCR got pissed off over the blatant waste of ammunition but once the vault of 10/10 bangable lusciousness was open they realized they still had to be made but came up with another reason instead
Vault with nothing but children that are 6-8 years old.
Only way of education is carttoons and animations.
Everything goes as long as it looks cartoonish.
Let them all out when the last one reaches 25years of age.
All heavily armed.
I want a vault where all the separate sections move around.
Imagine waking up in the dorm, as per usual, to find you have no clue of the layout of the vault, everything is rearranged on a 24hr basis.
It'd drive me nuts.
>fuckton of weapons lying around
>every problem settled by luck-based game
Can't tel if didn't play the games or unoriginal faggot, or if this is what passes for trolling anymore.
Vault were every humans gets 1 cat and 1 dog.
Pets have the same average life span as humans.
All humans have to hate all kinds of animals and pets.
The more pets you have the more privileges you get.
When the last pets leaves, instant death.

My ideas, when not specified, all food and drink and survival equipment is provided.
Vault full of super fattening food, ice cream, pizza, etc.
Anyone who goes about 5% bodyfat is instantly executed. Bodyfat testing once a week.
Vault with one incredibly homophobic man and three gays.
Vault with 20 heterosexual women, masturbation is punishable by death, see how long it takes for them to turn.
Vault with 10 people (five male, five female) and one cat. The cat dies every week and is replaced by a new one.
Vault filled with fitness equipment, weekly fitness test, anyone who fails is executed. Test gradually get to the point where they test to the peak of human fitness.
Vault with one anti-brony man and mlp plushies and dvds being the only thing to watch/do.

the pieces are there you should be able to piece it together
>i know what 87 was used for son i've played the games and am actually running FO2 in the background as i type this
>5% body fat are instantly executed
You want a vault full of anorexic people.
I would make something along the lines of the vault having to expell a third of its population every 15 years. The vault itself is a fucking paradise with replenishingg supplies and allround fantastic living conditions. If the population wasnt "expelled" every 15 years the entire vault will be flooded with boiling water. Keep in mind that this vault cannot be opened except for when those people are let out. Imagine how people would decide who would go? Perhaps it would encourage some sort of crazy breeding program to keep the population sustainable? Would it lead to some sort of vault filled with inbred fucks, would they all be young adults like little lamplight or would be flooded?
Yeah that was what he wanted with that post. His thought was : "Oh OP is referencing Vault 11 in Fallout New Vegas. Im also gonna reference it and hope that someone writes "Vault 11""

Just have everyone fuck a year before kicking-out day and throw all the babbys out.
500 women + 500 men produce 500 babbies.
1/3 of 1500 is 500, chuck out the bebbies. Works great. No one suffers.
I realize 5% is an incredibly low body fat percentage.
All the food in there is incredibly fattening, it would be a test of will, each person would only be able to eat just enough to survive.
I would buid a massive bunker, that looks like its just for survival, but 30 years in the bunker will say theres a malfunction with the reactor and radiationlevel are going to rise.
Thus people are seperated into groups and locked into smaller minivaults on a lower level. The kicker is, that these minivaults are actually tiny social experiments, like one will have pissiors that are slightly to close together and in one people will be told there part of a freakish experiment, where they have to fill in questionaires and we check how many positive words they use compared to negative ones.

Ill just get two cyborg legs, that weigh like 30kg each and then Ill eat all your shit.
I also lift much better than you. You shouldve put more point into INT...
youre not gonna see interesting things with so ew people.
999 men to one woman is guaranteed rape
20men to one woman who knows
3 men to one woman will be just like everyday life.
A single bathroom that opens for fifteen minutes every 24 hours.
Overseer is an AI with no sense of compassion.
If you piss yourself waiting for the bathroom to open, you get a 1 day penalty, 2 if you shit yourself.
3 and 4 respectively if it's in the bathroom (so, people learn not to struggle with each other in there) or they dirty the facilities with waste.
5 and 6, respectively, if they just say fuck it and go on the floor somewhere.
At the end of each week, penalties are counted up, including any rollover from last week if someone accumulated more than 7. Then they all press a button to choose their penalty; no food, or no clothes. Whichever you choose applies for the entire penalty period, up to 7 days at which time it rolls over to next week's choice.
I think people are easily manipulatable. I think there is a type of person almost forced by his makeup to shout Vault 11 whenever something reminds them of Vault 11. Even if its just the description of Vault 11 itself.
>flooded with boiling water
"Stephen come over here please."
"Yes Mister Garfinkle?"
"Stephen, this killing mechanism you turned in is not up to spec. Why do we need this huge Watertank, and where is the nervegas coming from?"

I would have a vault filled with a
>50/50 male to female ratio
>50% of men would be infertile alphas
50% are extremely fertile betas
100% of wimen would be from todays generation (14-19yo) all fertile.
There will be absolutely no way to determine the fertility of any of te subjects amongst themselves
>pure eugenics, large population, consistently allow only the top 50% in both intelligence and athleticism to breed.
creating the asocial human
I seriously hope the actual government is considering vaults, that can go selfsustained for evolutionary timeframes.
In my vault people are only allowed to have children once theyre above a certain age wich gets raised by about a week every generation.
This should raise biological lifeexpectancy 1week every 30 years or so.
>Two neighbours fall in love
>One begins to starve themself so they can climb through and live together
>They are rotated before they are thin enough
>Live in hunger in the vain hope that one day they will meet again

yeah cannibalism would be a biological imperative there. Unless they can domesticize rats or something with the toast.
>strict meat eater with veggies for 30 years
2 days to cave in, 19048 days to wonder why you made it 30 years. Its binary. You will have results after 1month.
I think theyd just descent into endless arguments and what safety is and wether you had any deeper knowledge on how flooding the bunker with radiation would still be safe to them.
dude noone wants to read your posts. Its like someone tells you Glutein can cause cancer and you go: "I knew that and Ive said that. Really listen more, it would help you"
Noone likes you

A Vault thats nothing but a room with a moose
male to female ratio should always be 1:4
if they don't, they will die immediately, no questions asked
Youre ensuring 1 woman survives. practically guaranteeiong it. Only 1 or 2 women, depending when you will kill the last man when its 1 man to 3 pregnant women

Tell the population of my vault that over time they will develop "super powers". due to food additives, chemical in the air/water or what have you. it would all be a placebo. and just see if they do develop something a little extra.

Actually, yes. I am an actor and am currently researching for a role where I'll be playing a retarded, autist.
One of my friends told me this would be the best place to go.
Been at it for about 3 weeks now.
never played fallout three. PC bitches and says not compatible.

You thought that was damage control? I am just trying to see how far I can keep stringing you along. Considering you're a complete mental midget, I am guessing until this thread 404s.
one thousand people people are placed in a vault for 30 years, from the first year there is 99% food to feed everyone, either just enough for 99% or a little less for everyone, as each year passes three percent less food will be distributed, by 50% half the horde should be purged, and now only the naturalborn survivors live, they will be in packs of any quantity, but food will be lesser and lesser in amount and quality with less people there will always be enough food for the strongest so the ones without will have turned feral on themselves.
Only when there is ten people alive will they be released and let go in to the wasteland as hardened survivors

Why are you unable to just admit that you were being inexcusable stupid? You just keep digging yourself in deeper and deeper with this cringeworthy bullshit. Le epic reverse psychology meme, just kill yourself already.

Essentially cause the whole vault to be horrified of them.
>Once everyone is grown up, let in a single fly. Then more and more as time goes on.
Watch mass hysteria and paranoia grip the entire vault, and see if perhaps anyone comes to figure out that flies are actually harmless and returns peace to the vault.
If they do manage to do that, make the next release a bunch of highly venomous insects and see if they respond with fear and survive, or if they learned their lesson with the flies and die.

15 of them get a single brick of milk chocolate once a week from their room's food vending machine.
The other 25 get sprayed with mild acid from their room's sprinkler once every three months, just for a minute or two.
They can trade/give chocolate, but if the women switch rooms, the rooms change functionality to whatever that woman used to get.
How dead are the 15 women, or do they keep them alive and threaten them into giving up all of their chocolate, or do they become the ruling matriarchy?

Vault with 50 men and 50 women
10 treadmills attached to valves that release oyxgen, but only if treadmills are operated at over 5m/hour.
Food is distributed based on TDEE. The more your calories used, the more you get to eat.
Leadership in the vault is ranked based on number of miles on the treadmill.
Results: I expect there to be an initial power grab for the mills. Perhaps an a few top vaulties will ally together and restrict access to the mills from the others to gain dominance. Creating a class system based on runners and sitters. Sitters do the daily work, runners keep the vault alive and eventually treated with respect and honor. Injury of any of the runners would change the leadership dynamic. As runners age and die, new runners would take their place, but be at the bottom of the totem poke.
Any viral outbreak could kill everyone.
People will be killed if they breed on any day other than January 1st.
Sexual tensions rise much more than normal; people who wouldn't be getting it in anyways blame it on the restriction and form disturbed obsessions with others.
That's a good one.

If a person dies, their stuff is no longer delivered.
Which items would be most valuable? Would people kill their neighbors for instantaneous gain, if they knew that the items would no longer exist?
This is so fucking good.
I like the idea of a vault like this except instead of the rooms rotating, there are guillotines hidden aboe the holes which slice whatever is protruding through the hole at random intervals - say at 1 random instant every day/week/month/year in different vaults.
Every vault with different timers will have different behaviour with the holes, the yearlies might have sex sometimes but the daylies will probably never use them. People will probably start daring each other to do things and games of risk (not that kind of game of risk you fucktard) will be played.
I think it would be good to have the holes covered at all times and people have to manually open them to talk and socialise, the guillotines will slice off the finges of anyone socialising from time to time and they can never open the holes again...
Vault 56 k.
400 residents, mixed races and more or less equal gender. All forms of entertainment can only be accessed through a 56 k dial up modem. All forms of practical information are available over pipboy, which connects over wifi connected to this 56 k modem. Thats it really.
