    Hanging chains...dripping water....jets of steam....occasional sparks of power conduits....spilled cargo pods....warnings and flickering neon....

    Think...Blade Runner Los Angeles and The Nostromo have a nasty hate f@%k child.

    That's what I want Jameson Memorial to look like.

    Reminds me of the Buddhist monk who walked up to a hot dog stand. Vendor says, "what'll it be pal"?

    Monk replies, "One with everything."

    Would be nice if it was a unique starport visually.

    I think the most pressing aesthetic issue are the windows. Or should I say, the wallpaper fdevs have pasted on buildings.

    ED looks like g police for PS1 sometimes (great game btw).

    Great. Then we will have to fluently speak Chinese in the future to order shrimp fried rice from a hovering restaurant in our small cubicle we live miles above the smog.

    Still there is no smog in Indiana.

    Fixed it for you. To continue, the hot dog cost $2.50. The monk handed him $3.
    When the monk asked for change, the vendor replied "Change is found within."

    Perhaps one of the main reason's the station can offer as many products and available ships is because of the low overhead they have, because they don't remodel. I reminded of my of a time where as a prospected driver was applying for an employment to drive one of my then three tractor trailers I owned. He made a remark to the fact that though my trucks were clean, and like the paint schemes, they didn't have a chromed parts. I simply informed him that chrome may look good, but it doesn't pay the bills.

    Nah. Totally bored with grim Bladerunner dystopian scenery. Give me palm trees, fountains and the bright optimistic futures of Syd Mead, Mass Effect, ST:TNG and The Orville over that stuff any day. Likewise I'm also sick of the clichéd "seedy space bar", but that's off topic I guess.

    I guess in the Elite-o-verse, some stations will be nicely appointed with award-winning designs, whilst others will be complete dumps. A bit like airports and rail stations in the real world. A memorial station would, I'd assume, be pretty well-kept and ornate, if only to give players a sense of achievement for having got access to it.

    Found myself thinking of the exclusive Gentleman's Clubs of St James, London for some reason...
