City 15 Replica - LOCATIONS: the master list
« on: April 01, 2008, 09:04:46 PM »
Factory Satellite Brutus City 15 Replica


City 15 Replica
A replica of the M15 Fleet's City 15, with a large population living within it, facilitating trade, manufacturing and so on.  It serves as the seat of the sector forum.
Population: 300,000 - 350,000 microns

It is based on the following (the original setting, which can also be used):

Quote
The setting: The 15 Macross Long Range Emigration Fleet in orbit around Teradai IV, spring 2050.  Aside from a few random skirmishes with rogue Zentraadi in the sector, the fleet is safe, and at peace.

Please choose one of these locations to start play in.  Ideas for new locations can be submitted on the New City Locations Request Topic for discussion and review.

City 15 Locations: (based on information from here, and additional submissions by members of the MRG)

Introduction
The City-15 block is the home of the vast majority of the Macross-15 Fleet's civilian population. Over 350,000 people call the City-15 home. They work and live in its controlled temperate environment, protected by a large fleet of warships and Variable Fighters. The City-15 has no weapons of its own other than two Squadrons of Variable Fighters assigned to protect it. The VF-11 Thunderbolt Squadrons are responsible for the interior defence of the City alongside the City-15 Police department. The City is protected from exterior attacks by an armour plated clam shield that, during attacks, closes to fully encompass the city block; with Pin Point Barriers working in addition to stop incoming lasers and missiles before they can even hit the clam shield. During normal non-combat periods, the claim shield is up and projects a day or night time scene using numerous holographic projectors to simulate normal days for the inhabitants of the city.

Interior Design
The City-15's interior design is a combination of old world and new world in many ways. The vast majority of buildings are of a modern 21st century design, with holographic advertisements dotting walls and pavements through out the districts devoted to shopping and business. However, in the more exclusive area's of the city, older design styles, dating back several hundred years, are evident. The best example of this are the museums of the City-15, which follow the example of the large, old style buildings of London, and other European cities.

There are various types of mass transit in the city, from buses to subway-like cars riding in unpressurized tubes.  Moving about the city is quite easy and cheap via mass transit.  A lot of residents also have personal vehicles.  Almost all vehicles are able to travel in space, though riders of motorcycles need a spacesuit.  Many vehicles are also able to hover and briefly fly inside the City 15 section.


Area's/Districts of City-15 and notable locations within them:
Note: it may be faster and easier to do a Ctrl+F (in win explorer) search to find a particular establishment or type of establishment.  If you cannot find what you are looking for, that doesn't mean that it doesn't exist in the city!



Bayside
Top Class Shopping Malls, next to a bay on the lake in the city.
  • Abu Zaad (Lebanese restaurant)
  • Bay Lead Restaurant (5 Star restaurant)
  • City-15 Bayside Stadium - A multipurpose stadium which is normally used for sporting and athletic events, however it was designed with adaptability in mind. The Bayside Stadium also commonly functions as a site for festivals, concerts and other large staged events.
  • Bill Gadsby's Doughnuts - A popular coffee-and-doughnut shop.  Members of the 47 SIU have been known to stop in for coffee and a doughnut from time to time. Though black coffee and crullers remain its stock and trade, "Billy's" offers plenty of espresso, cappuccino, lattes and pastries for "sophisticated" customers.
  • La Marina (Waterfront bar and restaurant)
  • SIU Headquarters
  • The Icebox (Nightclub)
  • Waterside Cafe (Cafe/Restaurant)
  • Windgate Shopping Centre - A debate rages if Windgate truly is the largest indoor shopping centre in the fleet (Film Academy Mall claims to be larger.) Size aside, "Windgate Mall" offers a blend of exclusive shops, department stores and a variety of kiosks in its ample concourses. If an item may be purchased through legal channels, it will be for sale at the Windgate.  At the heart of the Centre, is an internationally-scaled ice hockey rink that hosts plenty of pick-up games, youth competitions and free skates. Port of the rink is the mall's food court, with booths able to suit the tastes of shoppers from any culture.  Anchoring the mall are four department stores, fore, aft, starboard and port.  At the fore is the hallmark of high end department stores, Al-Fayed. At the opposite end, and nearly as exclusive, is Grace Brothers. Port features Klein's, specializing in home needs, sporting goods, tools and automotive work. The starboard anchor is the Harlot Megastore, specializing in music, media players, electronics and books.

  • Winchester Steak House - Perched at the top of the Imperial Hotel is its own five-star restaurant, the Winchester Steakhouse. The name Winchester fits, as the eatery slowly rotates above the top of the Macross 15 dome, providing an unparalleled view, save for the one from the City Hall. Though many think the name is a pun for the revolving restaurant, the owner, Harold Winchester, claims to be from Texas, though his passport gives a different name and land of birth (Argentina!)  Though the fleet travels with a Sunny-flower to produce foods and clones animal tissues for meats, premium beef (including Kobe) remains something of a luxury, and the Winchester provides the best, within a luxurious atmosphere. The steakhouse operates its own organic and hydroponic farms for vegetables aboard the Sunny-flower, a cattle ranch, and purchases fish live from the Riviera 15 to store in tanks within the kitchen, ensuring the freshest seafood aboard the Macross 15.  At the second floor, the Winchester offers diners an intimate venue to enjoy a quiet and romantic dessert within its dessert suites, offering the finest pastries anywhere, with coffees and liquors available at the press of a button. The Winchester is the final word in luxury in the fleet.

Equipped with two billiard tables, a table football set, darts and a jukebox, the thatched-roof "country pub" welcomes all-well almost all.  Lampton, a rabid supporter of the Arsenal FC, welcomes Gunner fans from far and wide, but supporters of other clubs may find the service to be a bit slow.  Offering all sorts of pub fare, diners may chase their lunches down with a variety of British and European beers and ales, or try some of the hosts own, excellent English style ales. His oatmeal stout and porters are legendary.

  • Tora (Sushi bar)
  • City-15 University - Not as large as any planet bound Universities due to a limitation of space within the City block.  It offers every imaginable subject a student could wish to learn and offers the best education as several of its Professors are ex-Oxford, Cambridge, and Harvard University lecturers.

Outlying Districts:
The exterior of the upper surface of the Factory Satellite also has some sub-domes, too.  They were the original city sections before the colonists decided to build a replica of City 15 on the surface.  They are generally the same as the outer domes of the City 15 Replica and are in poorer states.  Some have even been purchased outright by private corporations, industries or even individuals!  In general, more nefariuous activities tend to occur in these outlying districts.

Sub-domes attached surrounding the outside of the City 15 Replica.  These do not have an armoured shield that can be closed over them.


Azair
Azair Subdome (Lower Middle Class residential)
  • English's Pawn Shop - Owner, Will English, operates the quiet pawn shop offering a collection of antiques, jewellery, rare finds, assorted junk and unique items. Though occasionally he sees merchandise confiscated as stolen goods, police believe that he keeps his most exotic items well away from the showcases and the eyes of cops. It's said that Will English will fence anything that a man cares to steal, and will sell information to those he trusts, or who buy his services.  Other than crime, English's is a fine place to pick up musical instruments, tools and jewellery.
  • Flea Market (Moroccan style)


Farling
Farling Subdome (Lower Middle Class residential)
  • Diratsou's Restaurant and Hookah Bar - A popular, and low cost eatery in Farling.  Diratsou's is a comfortable and quiet caf?, specializing in Armenian foods, such as stuffed meatballs, roasted meats and fantastic pilaffs. While waiting for a tasty meal, diners often enjoy the cool smoke of shisha, from a hookah. Shisha is sold in 31 different flavours, and pipes may be hired and filled for $5. Waiters will replace charcoal free of charge, and the bowl usually lasts an hour. Shisha refills cost $2.50.  Diratsou's is popular with members of the service of Eastern European and Middle Eastern ancestry, and young people who enjoy hookah smoking.


Newton
Newton Subdome (Upper Middle Class residential)
  • Cafe Bomber - Quietly nestled on one of the Subdome's busiest roads, is this quiet little cafe.  Named for the infamous band Fire Bomber, every night is Karaoke Night, starting at 7 PM; and open-mic for everything else is from 3 AM to 6:30 PM.  Open 24/7, this place serves just about every alcoholic and non-alcoholic drink imaginable, including the best smoothies and milkshakes in the fleet, at reasonable prices.  Alaras Sparke, a local singer and Spiritia consultant for the new Sparrow Hawk squadron, is a regular at this place and the usual winner of the weekly singing competition the owner hosts.  The food is varied, with both comfort-food options and some of the latest health-food crazes on the menu at all times.

Map of City 15.

City 15 Replica has the same street and dome organization, however there isn't a Battle class ship attached to the front.  The entire thing is built into the top of the Brutus Factory Satellite.

Made some adjustments to better fit into the Group Campaign setting (doesn't mean that any games herein must take place in that setting!)
