And a flat-plan of the main sections:

There was a well developed Colony Model looking at things like food, energy and area/volume budgets. That all worked out really nicely in Metric, but SJG said it had to be in Imperial Units and it became a complete nightmare. I had the whole first draft completed when SJG cancelled, essentially because it wasn't game'y enough I think - too much hard science!
