Capital Wasteland

In the Capital Wasteland, there are 22 setlements, ranging in size from Rivet City, population of 43 named characters and 7 Stores, to Girdershade: 2 people and no merchants. Apart from Rivet City, there are 4 other major settlements: Megaton, which would be probably the first settlement the Lone Wanderer encounters after escaping the vault; Underworld, the city inside downtown DC full of ghouls; Tenpenny Tower, a former luxury hotel that Allistair Tenpenny lets people in for the right price- ghouls not apply; and the Citadel, home of the Brotherhood of Steel. bar those, there is the Republic of Dave, Canterbury Commons, Oasis, Paradise Falls, Temple of the Union, Little Lamplight, Arefu, Andale, and the Reilly's Rangers Compound are all settlements of a medium size, and all have related quests. Vault 101 and 112 both are also populated: Vault 101 is where the story starts, yet is closed after you exit for the first time and after the Trouble on the Homefront quest. Vault 112, home of the Tranquility Lane simulator, is populated only by RoboBrains and, briefly, the Lone wanderer's father, James.

Guild Wars

Up to date as of February 01, 2010
(Redirected to Town article)

From GuildWiki

Contents

A Town is a type of staging area that includes NPCs who offer a full set of services (e.g. Merchants and Henchmen).

Regions rarely have more than one town and some do not have any (e.g. Ring of Fire Islands). Towns tend to supply local color, such as NPCs who don't serve a specific game function but offer history, gossip, or trivia related to the area.

When the game specifies that something works while in town, it also works in outposts.

Typical town services

World map appearance

Towns are annotated on the World Map (default key "M") using different icons in different campaigns:

Image:CityIcon.png Image:FactionsTownIcon.png Image:NightfallTownIcon.png Image:TormentTownIcon.png
Tyria,
Battle Isles
Cantha Elona Realm of Torment

Notes

  • Sometime the game/manual, and some players use town to mean any staging area (outpost, mission location, etc), although technically they are not the same.
  • Some towns have road signs marking sections of the town where NPCs offering similar services gather together.
  • Doomlore Shrine in Eye of the North is currently the only town without the full set of NPCs. Rather, it has an NPC setup similar to that of a mission outpost.

ST Expanded

The Star Trek Expanded Universe Database is for fanon and related content. See Memory-Alpha.org for the canon Star Trek wiki.

A city is a relatively large and permanent settlement, particularly a large urban settlement. Historically, in Europe, a city was understood to be an urban settlement with a cathedral; in later usages, especially in the United Kingdom and parts of Commonwealth of Nations, a city was a settlement with a royal charter.

Cities generally have advanced systems for sanitation, utilities, land usage, housing, and transportation and more. This proximity greatly facilitates interaction between people and businesses, benefiting both parties in the process.

(Redirected to Player city article)

From SWG Wiki

Corellia City Hall

Player city is a type of city established and maintained by players. The mayor administers a player city through the city control panel in the archive room of the City Hall.

Table of contents

Establishing a player city

The steps to establishing a player city are:

  • Place a deed for a City Hall on a planet that has not reached:
    • 25 cities on Corellia, Naboo, or Tatooine
    • 50 cities on Dantooine, Lok, Rori, or Talus
  • The character with which you place the City Hall deed will automatically declare its residence as the City Hall. Four additional characters must place a house within 150 meters of City Hall and declare residence within 24 hours.

Player city rank

Player city rank is determined by citizenship and enables the following civic structures:

Rank Title Citizens Radius Enabled civic structures
1 Outpost 5 declared 150 m Small gardens
2 Village 10 declared 200 m Medium gardens, Bank, Garage, Cantina
3 Township 15 declared 300 m Large gardens, Cloning facility, Hospital
4 City 30 declared 400 m Shuttleport, Theater
5 Metropolis 40 declared 450 m

Advancement

Player cities update once a week; the exact time for the city update can be determined from the City Maintenance Terminal located in City Hall. Prior to taxation and city maintenance, the city rank and citizenship is validated. If the city has enough citizens to advance, the city is promoted. If the city does not have enough citizens to maintain their current rank, they are demoted. The Mayor is notified of any changes in city rank.

Player city rank caps
Planets Total cities
allowed
Rank 3
or higher
Rank 4
or higher
Corellia, Naboo, Tatooine 20 15 10
Dantooine, Lok, Rori, Talus 50 30 20

Specialization

A specialization gives the city a bonus in some area for an increased cost in city maintenance. Different city specializations are available provided the city is of sufficient rank (minimum of Rank 3). A city can have only one specialization at a time and may only be changed once a week (to take effect with the next city update). Once a specialization is put into effect, it remains until the Mayor changes or removes it.

Specialization Benefit Maintenance
Cloning Lab Reduces the cost of removing Cloning Sickness by 50%. 8,000 cr
DNA Laboratory 3 hour reduction per cycle 20,000 cr
Encore Performance Storyteller items last an extra 12 hours 20,000 cr
Entertainment District Increased entertainer buff duration and tick 8,000 cr
Improved Job Market 20% bonus payout for missions accepted from terminals. 8,000 cr
Manufacturing Center 10% bonus to crafting assembly phase 5,000 cr
Medical Center 10% medical buffs and healing in the Medical Center 8,000 cr
Research Center 15% bonus to crafting experimentation phase 12,500 cr
Sample Rich 20% resources gathered while sampling and a 10% chance of finding resources. 7,000 cr

Decorations

Decorations can be placed in a city of any rank by the mayor. Placement and maintenance fees are paid from the city treasury.

Decoration Schematics Placement Maintenance
Fountains 100 cr 150 cr
Statues 100 cr 150 cr
Streetlamps 100 cr 150 cr
Terminals 100 cr 150 cr

  • Tatooine Shuttleport (Schematic)

Maintenance

The weekly maintenance on a city varies depending on your city's rank, what structures you have placed and what specializations you have in place. You can find a detailed read-out of your city's weekly maintenance on the city terminal in your city hall (not the structure terminal). City maintenance is taken from the city treasury once a week.

Once the city's rank has been validated, the city's weekly maintenance fee is subtracted from the treasury. City Hall maintenance is paid first, then the rest of the structures. If the city can't pay for a structure, it becomes damaged and the mayor is notified of the structure status; the status of a civic structure can be checked from the City Maintenance Terminal. If a civic structure is damaged and reaches 0 condition, it is destroyed. **If City Hall is destroyed, all civic structures and decorations are destroyed and the city is disbanded; a city should take four weeks to decay if no maintenance is paid. If a city can't pay for mission terminals, skill trainers, or decorations they are destroyed and the Mayor is notified.

Elections

Elections are held every 3 weeks. Changes to the voting register are only allowed during the first two weeks of each election cycle. Challengers and the incumbent Mayor may withdraw from the race. Citizens who do not cast a vote during an election automatically vote for the incumbent mayor.

  • Challenger: the incumbent mayor receives an in-game mail notifying them they are being challenged.
  • Challenger win: all mayor abilities, civic structures, and decorations are automatically transferred to the new mayor.
  • Challenger loss or election tie: the mayor retains their position.
  • No challenger: the incumbent mayor is automatically reelected.

GCW Allignment

With Game Update 15, Player Cities can now allign their city to either Imperial or Rebel faction, or choose to remain Neutral in the GCW.

When a player city is alligned, the following bonuses will apply:

Player Cities that are not alligned will still experience roaming factional spawns outside the confines of their city borders.

Transformers

Up to date as of February 05, 2010

From Teletraan I: The Transformers Wiki

It was built on rock and roll.


The Autobots split up to head for the inner layers of Gigantion, and Coby reveals his latest creation.

Contents

Detailed synopsis

Optimus Prime gathers the Autobots on the bridge of the Ogygia having discovered the Atlantis crashed on the newfound world of Gigantion. With Bud and the Mini-Cons trapped on the ancient warship, they plan to finally rescue their comrades.

Onboard the Atlantis, Sideways comes to, and is chewed out by Starscream. When the Autobots attack, Starscream declares he's still weakened, and sends Sideways out to handle the intruders. Sideways plays it up all loyal in front of Starscream ("Oui, mon capitan!"), but as soon as he's alone, he starts bitching. Elsewhere on the ship, Bud, Jolt and Reverb come to after the crash. They hear something coming towards them...

Outside, a very irked Sideways tackles Optimus and Wing Saber. The two Autobots combine to Sonic Wing Mode, but it's all basically a distraction while Override and the Cybertron Defense Team infiltrate the Atlantis by ground.

I can feel its eyes on me...

Back in the ship, whatever's coming towards Bud is in the vents, and busts through. The trio run, but are blocked off by a Scrapmetal. But it's not an ordinary Scrapmetal... it's one piloted by Bud's brother Coby!

Outside, Optimus fires a Cyber-Key-enhanced blast at Sideways, but Soundwave arrives and yanks him out of the way. Starscream mutters that once again, he's the only one he can trust. Outside, the Autobots are reunited with Bud and the Mini-Cons, but the ship begins to rumble. Optimus notes it's too damaged to fly, but Scattorshot, who's been taking readings, notes that that's not the problem: Starscream is powering up the main guns using the engines' power. Quickmix arrives, snarling that he's not about to let some "ratchet-headed offworlder" destroy any city. He converts to cement mixer mode, and his Mini-Con partner Stripmine mans his station on Quickmix's back. The other Autobots pull away, and Quickmix begins pumping untold amounts of quick-drying cement that covers the entire ship and starts filling the crevice. His plans foiled, trapped and out of power, Starscream can do little more than profane.

Back on the Ogygia, thanks are exchanged, and both Bud and Lori ask Coby when he's going to build each of them a giant robot. Coby apologizes for only having parts enough for one. Optimus asks Scattorshot if he had anything to do with it, and Scattorshot replies he only offered a little help. Coby shows everyone what else the machine can do, transforming it into the Cobybot! Scattorshot notes that the 'bot hasn't got any onboard weapons systems for safety. Optimus approves, but says there's just one more thing...

"You might want to try shouting 'Transform!!' when you do that! It'll really get you psyched up!"

Optimus then places a special Autobot sigil on the Cobybot's shoulder-armor. There is laughter and merriment all around.

Using the data drive Coby found (last episode), Scattorshot discovers there are four main routes to the central layer, with no way to tell which one is the quickest. The Autobots then split up into teams to cover them all, with a backup team remaining on the Ogygia just in case.

Back in the normal universe, Primus carefully rations his energy, firing periodic blasts to keep the black hole from expanding too much, even though it is starting to create holes visible from Velocitron, Jungle Planet and Earth.

Somewhere on Gigantion, Sideways thanks Soundwave for saving his bacon. Soundwave reminds him that they have a purpose for being here...

Jetfire has split the Autobot forces into four teams to explore each route, plus the backup team for five.

Elsewhere, the Decepticons are buffing up Galvatron after his duel with Optimus. Galvatron simply barks the order "Find the Key", and the Decepticons scramble.

Optimus Prime's team, consisting of Vector, Metroplex, Bud and the Mini-Cons, come across a giant pile of scrap blocking the way. Bud and Jolt crawl through a small hole, and set off charges to let the larger bots in. Jolt checks the map-box strapped to his back, and they carry on... unawares that they're being followed by Ransack and Crumplezone. The Autobots come across a big door, and Metroplex forces it open... revealing an entire city under a bright daylight sky. Optimus is befuddled, as they're supposed to be underground, but Metroplex and Jolt inform him it's all an illusion set up by the ceiling above.

ARE WE LIVE??

Jolt is about to check the map when he's snatched! Ransack and Crumplezone give themselves an overly-extended intro (Very Team Rocket-esque, no?), and Metroplex takes a swing at them. The two start leaping from rooftop to rooftop, playing hot potato with the Mini-Con, who can't fly with the map strapped to his back. Optimus and Vector give chase, but can't shoot out of fear of hitting Jolt. Bud calls Coby in for help...

Coby preps his Cobybot, and Quickmix gives him... something. The bot hovers off to catch up with Prime, Coby assuring the Autobots he can handle those two "sprocket-heads" by himself. The Decepticons are having a blast, even shooting down chunks of the false sky. Suddenly a voice cuts in, and the Cobybot appears! He transforms the mech (with the appropriate "Cobybot, TRANSFORM!!!" and stock-footage sequence, earning a thumbs-up from the Primes and Metroplex), and hurls a steel ball at the two Decepticons, which breaks open and sprays some stuff at their feet. The two 'Cons laugh it off, until they realize they're stuck, thanks to Quickmix's super-fast-drying cement.

Optimus stands in front of the two, demanding Jolt back, and Crumplezone tosses the Mini-Con over his shoulder.... but he's caught by Evac. Metroplex then tosses Optimus the Sparkdrinker, who stock-footages the two Decepticons far, far away.

Optimus thanks the backup team for coming along, and tells Coby "I need more 'bots like you." Bud takes this as his cue to pester Coby to build him a robot suit.

Other Notes

Animation and/or technical glitches

  • When Bud and the Mini-Cons come to, Reverb's arm is in the shot, but he's missing the entire truck-bed/wheel portion of it.
  • Jolt's propeller spins when he bows in thanks to Optimus. In order to do this, it clips through the tail-rudder sticking out of his butt. This is not by any means the only time this occurs in the series.
  • When Override transforms when the teams roll out, it honestly looks like she lands right on top of Lori.
  • For being unable to move thanks to having his foot cemented to the floor, Ransack's supposedly-cemented foot sure does move a lot.

Continuity errors

  • When discussing the Cobybot, Scattorshot is carrying his long blue rifle in one shot, but it vanishes for the others.

Transformers references

  • When the Cobybot first transforms to robot mode, it does so with the classic Generation One transformation noise. (And no stock footage, either!)

Real-world references

  • Sideways' squeak of "mother!" when Optimus fires his Key-enhanced blast recalls cartoon legend Daffy Duck, who would frequently squeak out "mother!" right before something horrible happened to him.
  • Part of the Velocitron duo's extended intro involves the line "My name's Crumplezone, and this is my partner Ransack!". This is word-for-word the introduction comedian-magicians Penn & Teller use, with the big guy (Penn/Crumplezone) introducing the little guy (Teller/Ransack), accounting for the different names, of course. The only difference is that Ransack joins in to say his name, while Teller remains silent for the entire show (well, we never see him talk. Offstage voiceovers are another matter).

Miscellaneous trivia

  • This is the first time we see any connection between Sideways and Soundwave, though right now there's still little explaining Sideways' ultimate motive...
  • Bud gets new duds this episode.
