It seems that you can temporarily go past your storage space limit with weapons and outfits from lunchboxes.

Right now I have 200 dwellers and 2 lunchboxes. Can I get a unique dweller from the lunchboxes right now and temporarily go over the 200 limit, or should I kill off some of my current dwellers before opening the lunchboxes?

  • I think you are in the unique position to tell us. ;) – Ayelis Jul 22 '15 at 0:53

At 200 dwellers:

  • Radio station and dwellers stop showing up unless you find one in a lunchbox, it will stay outside until you kill someone so he/she can go in, or stay outside forever.
  • Your radio stations stop flashing, they still get happiness buff but they don't bring in new dwellers
  • Random people from the wastes won't show up.
  • Pregnant dwellers stay pregnant (Not sure for update 1.03).

  • Oh, that's right! At population cap, you can't invite new dwellers inside, and dwellers from lunchboxes show up outside the vault door by default. +1 – Ayelis Jul 22 '15 at 20:20
  • The line outside your vault will only hold 10 dwellers, after that the game will prevent you from opening any more lunchboxes until you free up waiting line space. – GodEmperorDune Aug 22 '15 at 7:16
