I am attempting to differentiate between certain habitats in order to give players a sense of being in different places. Page 68 of EP core notes that
"the differences between one habitat and another are rarely overwhelming. In addition, all of these stations are large enough to hold offices for all of the major hypercorps, who further promote uniformity by providing the same services from identical hypercorp offices. Since most of these habitats are major centers of commerce, travel between them is frequent, so there are various facilities for travelers such as hotels and sports clubs that help reduce the disorientation of travel by offering identical experiences, regardless of their location."
There are notable differences that you can suggest between Mars, Venus, and even places like Tethys. But what additions have you put forward to colour the players view of habitats such as Qing Long, or the Scum Barges? I am keeping the lack of any old world national identities at the forefront of my mind, which leaves me asking: What replaces this?
There are different interpretations of the interior of O'Neill cylinders here: http://www.nss.org/settlement/space/oneillcylinder.htm (taking the example of Qing Long), but these do not feel adequate. Should I be using the above text and viewing many places as merely 'Travel Lodges' in space?
