Gametitle-VB.pngThe following is based on Van Buren and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

Improve The Smelting Furnace was going to be a quest in Van Buren, the canceled Fallout 3 by Black Isle Studios. It was located in the Furnace Caves.[1]

Background[edit | edit source]

It'll take some convincing and trust, but if they let you shut down the furnace for a couple of days so you can make some upgrades, you can make it burn hotter and with less fuel, giving them better yields on their smelting.

Character type completion breakdown[edit | edit source]

  1. ScienceBoy - Is the one with the know-how. If your science is really good, the result is even better than normal.
  2. DiploBoy - Has a better chance of talking them into shutting down the furnace.
