The Arrival Shuttle (sometimes just called Arrivals) is where players who join the round after it has begun start out. It is a safe zone for people who have just joined, and harming anyone there is against the rules. This includes the hallways just outside it.

The maintenance area in the upper arm is a sort of miniature Tool Storage, with plenty of metal sheets, glass, and a triple threat of general manufacturer, mining fab, and uniform manufacturer. In addition, there are a few escape pods in case new arrivals arrive after the escape shuttle leaves. There are also some emergency oxygen closets that sometimes have internals supplies, in case the surrounding hallways are airless.

Speaking of surrounding hallways, there is a Security Checkpoint at the end of the lower arm. There's a room with a Space Station 13 sign and a helpful GuardBuddy named Murray that will show you around the station.

Maintenance information

It's air-vents can be supplied from the West Emergency Air Hookup.

The APC for this room is located in the maintenance area to the right of Emergency Storage B.

The power is supplied via a cable in the Arrivals Dock.

The Arrival Shuttle (sometimes just called Arrivals) is where players who join the round after it has begun start out. The emergency closets provide some tools and vacuum gear in case the power is out or the windows are broken on arrival.

Just south lies a small checkpoint with an ID terminal for the HoP (if he isn't manning the customs desk), the bar, which is usually filled with drunkards and puke, and finally, the main hallway to the rest of the station.

This is the Arrivals area, which is like the Arrivals section of a regular airport (note the strategic placement of the benches here), but for frozen people instead of tourists. All the people who wake up from cryosleep (i.e. join mid-round) begin their shift here, and if they ever need their way around the ship, Mary the Tourbot is just outside the door.

You can also shove braindead people in here, so that some random ne'er-do-well doesn't mug their ID or backpack or something. You yourself can climb back in if you have to leave the game, you have to eat dinner, or otherwise have to go braindead and log off for a while; expect a 15-minute wait before you can get back out though.

Merchant ships occasionally dock here.

Linestation, unlike its Cogstation breathen, is a suspended animation station, meaning that instead of receiving regular shipments of crew members through a shuttle, it has additional crew members under cryogenics-induced hibernation. When a stored crew member awakes from cryosleep (i.e. join mid-round), they wake up here, in Arrivals. Here, they can switch another, generically-colored jumpsuit or adorn their cranium with a knit cap, and if they ever need a refresher on the layout of the station, Murray the Tourbot is just outside the door.

You can also shove braindead people in here, so that some random ne'er-do-well doesn't mug their ID or backpack or something. You yourself can climb back in if you have to leave the game, you have to eat dinner, or otherwise have to go braindead and log off for a while; expect a 15-minute wait before you can get back out though.

For reasons NanoTrasen's top scientists and researchers are still trying to find out, Mushroom Station has no Arrivals Shuttle. Instead, late-joiners are spontaneously teleported in via one of many telepads. No one knows exactly where they're teleported from, but we do know where they're teleported to:

Think this is bizarre? There used to be a bug, pre-makeover, post-retirement, where late-joiners were accidentally spawned in Space. Evidently, the map's spawning system couldn't figure out how to get people on the telepads and defaulted to putting them on wherever (1,1) was, which was Space. The Debris Field would become more of a Space Graveyard than usual unless some Admin intervened.

Arrivals and Escape have combined to form the Shuttle Bay, as two flavors that go great together.

The Arrival Shuttle (sometimes just called Arrivals) is where players who join the round after it has begun start out. The emergency closets provide some tools and vacuum gear in case the power is out or the arrivals is missing air.

Just south of here is a little miniature version of Medbay called the Medical Booth and a storage room called Emergency Storage A. Further south is the station bar, a place to escape by drowning your sorrows, and the Pod Bay, a place to escape by fucking off into Space.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. The Arrivals Shuttle has basically infinite amounts of air in it though, so it's not too bad. Now, if there a way to weaponize it...

The APC for Arrivals is in the maintenance tunnel above the Medical Booth.

The Arrival Shuttle (sometimes just called Arrivals) is where players who join after roundstart spawn. Though it (unfortunately) doesn't move like the Escape Shuttle or Mining Shuttle, it still comes with some handy tools and emergency oxygen supplies in case the western asteroid is out of power or missing oxygen.

If any of the late arrivals also need a bit of help getting around the resort, Manuel the Tourbot is just outside the airlocks.

Arrivals is a reception area for new, incoming crew members located in the southeast of Oshan Lab. And when we say "reception area", we mean "landing zone for incoming sea pods to crash into." Why? Who knows! All we know are four things:

  1. It's a Janitor's worst nightmare. So much oil and robot debris!
  2. There's salbutamol and a few emergency oxygen closet for late arrivals that got a dip in the water too early.
  3. An adorable GuardBuddy named Moby lives here, easily distinguishable by its nice hat.
  4. Said GuardBuddy is happy to give you a tour of Oshan Lab and comes prepared with several humorous yet informative titbits about all the facilities, creatures, and wonders you may encounter during the tour.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. There's a drain though, plus a liquid shield for good measure.

The APC for this area is in the northwest area.

Here on the NSS Horizon, players who join after roundstart pop out of the industrial cryogenics unit in the unfortunately stationary Arrivals Shuttle, often simply referred to as Arrivals. In addition to housing useful supplies like medkits and emergency oxygen closets that potentially have internals, it introduces new comers to four recurring motifs, like an architectural doormat: narrow vertical hallways, wide horizontal passages, big rooms with crazy wiring, and weird nacelles tethered to ship like alien parasites.

Below the shuttle area is the central hallway, and, by extension, the bulk of the Horizon. Above is a lovely airport lounge with a voting booth and a great view of Space. Left of that is the Main Hangar/Pod Bay.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. It's too early to introduce them.

This area has no APC of its own. Instead, it falls under the Central Hallway APC right of this area, above the Computer Core.

The power for this area comes via a wire under the right airlock into the main hallway.

Slightly above the center of the station is Arrivals, the home of the local human popsicle dispenser and its pals, oxygen mini-closets #1 and #2. Here, tourbot Mabel introduces the freshly-thawed recruits to the typical features of Atlantean life: tiny, cramped working conditions, corporate propaganda that carefully conceals massive dysfunction and corruption, and weird cartography references.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent. In fact, there's only two of them on the whole place, and they're for pumping gases to burn for "study".

There is no APC. This area doesn't need one.

The Arrivals below and left of the Rising Tide bar hosts the ship's cryogenics unit, which is where people who join after roundstart spawn. While there's nothing too noteworthy here besides the voting booth and stack of paper and writing utensils, it does a fair job of introducing the map's greatest asset: attention to detail. When you pop out the cryo unit, you can immediately see lots of little things that, while of minimal utility, enhance the beauty of the ship and help you believe you really are in a state of the art submarine. It's things like:

  • A cool poster reminding you what ship you're on. The game always and already tells you what map you're on, but the poster is well-detailed and is a nice splash of color on an other nondescript grey wall. Speaking of which...
  • A little garden. You can't pick up any of the flowers there (our scientists have concluded that they are in fact painted on), but it's so much better than staring at boring grey tiles.
  • Colored lines about various rooms, colorcoded to which department they belong too. If you know what room it is, you probably already know which department it's a part of, but they really help tie the plain grey halls and the colorful locales they lead to.
  • Signs helpfully pointing towards Escape. On top of looking like something that would be actually be on a ship, they help new people get to where they need to be when the round's almost over...until someone blows them up.

Maintenance Information

There is no vent, not even an aesthetic one. How does the cryo unit stay cool? Armies of minions with fans?

The APC for this area is in the top left.
