Certainly not a bad direction, really.

Only 1/3 of texas is a desert. The rest is Urban Sprawl \ marsh land \ Rolling Hills \ Mountains.

That only happens to the epicenter and thats also based on how many kiloton a bomb is. This can be as small as 5 - 10 miles.
Also shockwave would only effect the city not the neighbouring area. While the radiation will be launched into the sky and effect a larger area. No one would want to live near the epicenter of a nuclear bomb drop. So they would be living in dispersed areas.
Chernobyl is an example of an area of massive ammount of nuclear fallout, as well as small shockwave.
And lastly I wanted to include a description of the Desert Rangers background, as many players are not familiar with them:
On the same day that the U.S. and Soviet Union were attempting to extinguish each other, a company of U.S. Army Engineers were in the southwestern deserts building transportation bridges over dry riverbeds. They worked deep in the inhospitable desert valleys, surrounded by a number of survivalist communities. Located directly south of their position on that day was a newly-constructed federal prison. In addition to housing the nation’s criminals condemned to death, the prison contained light industrial manufacturing facilities.
Shortly after the nuclear attack began, the Engineers, seeking shelter, took over the federal prison and expelled the prisoners into the desolate desert to complete their sentences. As the weeks passed, they invited the nearby survivalist communities to join them and to help them build a new society. Because of each community’s suspicions towards one another, times were difficult at first. But as time nurtured trust, this settlement -- which came to be known as Ranger Center -- grew to be one of the strongest outposts. Ranger Center even proved powerful enough to repel the hands of rancorous criminals who repeatedly attacked in attempts to reclaim what was once “rightfully theirs.”
The citizens of Ranger Center, after first believing that they were the only ones who survived the nuclear maelstrom, soon realized that communities beyond the desert’s grip had also survived, Because they had such success in constructing a new community, they felt compelled to help other survivors rebuild and live in peace.
Toward this end, the Desert Rangers, in the great tradition of the Texas and Arizona Rangers a century before, were born.
