[Feedback] Moving the Bridge to the Construction Level

Power/Atmospherics/Maintenance:

*snip*

The Engineering infrastructure comes in through an airlock and gets carried across the Medical Reception rafters. At least, for the "public" part of the level. I accidentally cut the substation out of this picture, but it's visible in the next one. The Important-Command-Actual-Bridge part will probably have its own substation which is fed from a different point, like the ladders by Engineering.

Would it be possible for the infrastructure passing over the rafters to get plating and safety rails? It doesn't make a whole lot of sense to have wires visibly 'hanging out' above the medical department, and seems especially unsafe for maintenance personnel to have nothing to keep them from falling.

Huge improvement, but still not sold in how exposed the Captain's office is. I would suggest an ante-office that connects to the outside, could be used as a spare office too. Or instead of an office, a simple reception like the diplomatic area one, just my two cents.

This looks good! Obligatory post from someone who has helped with the layout a bit, but I think Joshie has done an impressive job with it, better than I could hope to do.

I do have one question though: do you have any planned additions to command with this update? Now would be the time to if ever add anything to the department given all the space you have to work with.

It's not particularly exposed. The doors in the main hall are tamper-resistant to hacking, the walls are reinforced and need a whole toolbelt and about a full minute to get through, and the windows have shutters down.

Thank you! And I wouldn't have made this PR in the first place if you didn't provide the initial concept for it in the first place.

As for planned additions, none particularly off the top of my head. If something jumps out at me part way, I'll document it and carry on. If it's something somebody suggests on here that I decide would be beneficial to add, I'll make mention of it.

Overall update after today.

To re-iterate, the windows to the Captain's Office will have privacy shutters closed over them at roundstart, they just appear under the windows in the map editor.

 

I like it a lot, I would probably just add some plants outside the Captain's office.

Small update. I took a break and spent most of my time working on it today reworking/adding the proper area designations in the code and such, though I did do a tiny bit of actual nitty gritty mapping too.

I added a ladder to the surface maintenance area just behind the elevators. I also added a connecting maintenance tunnel to the Medical Interstitial Maintenance tunnels, which offers a maintenance route that doesn't require EVA equipment, and a handy path for Command to get to the Bunker more feasibly in the case of a lockdown.

I also moved the SAT down to the Bunker, and prettied it up a little bit with the mainframe floors (they start flashing red if the self destruct is enabled, cool right? Thanks ye olde TG code.) Also adjusted the bunker's electrical and air supply to be a little more reasonably self-sufficient if it actually needs to be used. It used to be all plugged into the main line and attached to the AI's powergrid too, so using the PACMAN wasn't even viable unless you snipped a bunch of wires. Swapped out the phoron PACMAN for a uranium one because scarcity, and because the fuel lasts a little longer in that one. It's mildly radioactive when active though, so like, it gets its own little contained room so that doesn't leak out.

The SAT is still Captain-only access.

Perhaps a weird request, but could that long L-corridor be given a fire closet? Just a little something to make it feel more distinct than merely being a tight deathtrap connecting corridor.

Of course! I'm just getting the rough edges down at the moment, I still have a lot of "filling" to go back and do as it were for a lot of stuff - lights, air alarms, welder tanks, intercomms, etc., so if you see a really blank area just assume that I'm still getting around to filling it out. Keep making suggestions though, by all means.

I just realized there's no Ian glass cage. Is this intentional?

Please see my above post. But honestly, I may consider removing the glass cage in favour of a pet bed, like from the old Exodus.

A bed sounds a million times better.

Minor request, can you add chromic windows to the HoP's meeting area? As it stands on the current map and this one, HoP's have to sit at their processing window if they want to see someone walk to their meeting door. Otherwise, I love everything about it!
