Fallout 4 has only been out for a mere 5 months and already we've been privy to some incredible builds coming out of its community. If it's not movie trailers being recreated in-game, we've been gifted immense AT-AT settlements, hilarious custom characters and some of the greatest gifs of broken elements this generation has to offer.

But Reddit user radioinactivity has just blown the gates of awesomeness wide open with their recreation of Hong Kong's sprawling, self-sustaining, lawless enclave, Kowloon Walled City.

City of Walls

Originally a Chinese military fort, Kowloon became a walled city after Hong Kong was given to Britain in the late 1800s. By 1987 the city, which was largely controlled by Triads, had 33,000 people residing within borders that stretched over 2.6 hectares, and in apartments that were a meager 250 sq ft.

By 1990 the number of inhabitants was said to have grown to 50,000.

The people of the Walled City were impoverished but hearty, prostitution was rampant and gambling and drug abuse were but some of the few past times within a place that hardly saw a glimpse of sunlight. The Walled City was eventually demolished in 1993 and turned into a public park.

Finding the city's tale of great interest, radioinactivity set about painstakingly recreating the multi-tiered cityscape in a PS4 version of Fallout 4, using Hangman's Alley as basis. And it is impressive.

This little collation of images doesn't truly do this build justice. Get over to the Imgur to have a look at the full roll of pics. It truly is a staggering creation.
