|Welcome to Engineering: the fortress at the aft (south) end of the station where the Chief Engineer and his goons make sure the singularity gets loose and consumes the entire station. In the rare case that this is NOT what you want to happen, read this guide.|
|Obvious exits||Hallway north, maintenance west, singularity south, space and the AI Satellite southeast|
|Purpose||Powers the station, holds equipment to repair inevitable damage to the station|
|Access level||Engineering for main area, Power Equipment for the Particle Accelerator and Power Storage areas, CE Private for his office|
|Noteworthy contents||Two common hardsuits, power control modules, oxygen and plasma tank dispenser, a terminal for checking the station's APCs, a P.A.C.K.M.A.N.-type portable generator and three station's main SMES cells|
|Clearance||Captain, Chief Engineer, Engineer, Head of Personnel, Head of Security, Engineering Security Officer|
|Locations on 8station|
Engineering Department has rooms all around the station.
These facilities are located inside the Engineering-wing:
- Chief Engineer's Office
- Particle Accelerator
- SMES Room
- Power Storage Room
- Engineering Secure Storage
- Department Lobby and Break Area
- Engineering Security Post
- Escape Pod
These facilities are located somewhere else:
- Construction Area
- Gravity Generator
- Singularity Engine
- Technical Storage
- Vacant Office
Powers the Singularity by shooting accelerated particles at it. The PA can be a very dangerous device, since it can quickly cause the singularity to get out of control and escape the containment if left unsupervised. The PA and the collectors can be sealed off with shutters using the nearby controls.
Used to house the Gravity Generator, then housed nothing, and now is the location of the three SMES cells that provide power to the station. A PACMAN portable generator is also located here. This room is a prime target of antagonists looking to black out the station, so check every once in a while to make sure it is not a hole in space.
Power Storage Room
This room houses both of Engineering's two hardsuits, a few batteries, door and power control modules, Engineering's oxygen and plasma tank dispenser, an anti-toxin pill, a crate that contains extra solar panels and a solar tracking beacon, and a terminal for checking the station's APCs and a O2 canister.
Engineering Secure Storage
The only button to open the shutters to this room are in the CE's office. It contains spare materials, backup parts for the singularity engine (more can be ordered at cargo), and a large plasma canister. Some people will try to break in here to steal the emitters to open locked crates.
- A crate with spare construction materials and Solid Plasma
- A Plasma Canister
- A Gravitational Singularity Generator
- Two Anti-Breach Shielding Projector
- Four Emitters
- Five Field Generators
Department Lobby and Break Area
The shared area between Engineering and Atmospherics. Used by both as a common access hall and a break room. While not too exciting, it at least contains a few snacks and some distractions. The Engineering Security Post is housed here.
In case of an evacuation, the engineering pod is usually the safest pod to take, assuming the singularity doesn't threaten you.
