Omnion Engramics is relatively small, but one of the most successful companies in the field of advanced cybernetics and general artificial intelligence.
Most of the larger robot manufacturers have their mass-produced models assembled in large factories and the research and customer relations are often handled at separate locations, but the Omnion Engramics operates differently. Their smaller production facilities develop and produce custom made AI operated cybernetic systems for various purposes from heavy-framed industry robots to humanlike household androids.
A typical facility has on-site laboratories, customer premises and the manufacturing in the same building. Omnion Engramics has basically two significant branches. One is their entertainment branch where they offer people very realistic, but safe historical theme parks with android actors. These androids have highly advanced personalities. Often extracted from the brain of a real person and then edited to fit its role.
Another branch is not public and it deals with more sensitive research and development. Some facilities are co-operative projects with the government. These facilities have higher security measures and they are often located at a remote location with very limited network connections for security reasons.
This map started as one of my #mapvember maps, but ended up being a bit too arduous. So, I left it aside for awhile and later finished all that piping around the map (which too some time to draw btw 😀 ). I think this map works great as a section of a factory or even an atmospheric processor.
Why are there so few factory or industrial plant maps around, yet many modern and scifi RPG campaigns end up visiting one at some point? Well, I think one of my patrons on Patreon had faced the same question and as a part of his patron reward asked me to do a factory map with multiple overpassing levels, walkways and such.
Well, I actually used to work for a summer in a fertilizer factory when I was 18, and drew some inspiration from that. It’s not possible to fit a big detailed factory on one page, so I did a smaller facility that could well work as a small power plant or chemical refinery. I hope you like the map and have use for it.
