Canned air warehouse

Much like its ancestors, the Atmospherics department is a storeroom for various types of Gases and located close to EVA, presumably to aid in restoring air to hull breaches. It features two high-capactiy Air Mix canisters and two empty canisters, as well as an array of Gas Reserve Tanks with accompanying pipes, valves, and connector port. There are also two EVA Security Shutter switches, just like the ones in actual EVA, for preventing entry and exit into Atmos.

Maintenance information

The APC for this room is located towards the left or this room, near the table of supplies.

Canned air and canned air accessories sales.

Access

Maintenance


This room's name is Atmospherics (but you can just called it Atmos), and it sells canned air and canned air accessories--for free! Just take a trip north through the station (i.e. take a left at sec and follow the hallway from there), take a right at the Arcade, and, once you've passed Engineering, go through the grey door (if you see plastic flaps or end up in maintenance, you've gone too far). Be sure to carry an ID that has maintenance access at the very least.

Once inside, you'll be positively blown away by all the different kinds of canned air it has. It has oxygen, nitrogen, oxygen-nitrogen air mix, carbon dioxide, even customer favorites like plasma and N2O! (Better act fast on the latter though--it's got only one!) It'll even throw in a free air siphon while you're there, so you can fill up an airless area with your favorite tank of air (sold separately) or even an air scrubber, so you can expel out all the bad air to make way for you good air.

Maintenance information

There is no vent. Not that it'd need one, it's got plenty of air already!

The APC for this room is located in the maintenance tunnel below, a little bit left of the entrance into maintenance.

Canned air dispensary

Atmospherics is a huge warehouse across the hall from Engineering used for storing various reserve tanks of gases. It's sort of like an ice cream shop, but instead of bowls and cones, there's empty canisters and instead of tubs of ice cream, there's reserve tanks of gas (which hold a little over twice the amount regular canisters hold), and instead of flavors, there's compositions/mixes, like:

  • Air Mix, the cherry vanilla flavor, because it's really popular and comes in white.
  • Oxygen, the strawberry or blue raspberry flavor, not as popular as vanilla but still well-liked
  • Carbon dioxide, the dark chocolate flavor, which everyone mistakes for milk chocolate until they get a take a big lick and start spluttering and coughing it out.
  • Nitrogen, the cherry flavor that people use to make cherry vanilla, but otherwise rarely ask for.
  • Plasma (!), the cinnamon flavor that only firebugs like and gets really unpleasant when exposed to heat or electricity.

This, er, shop is BYOW, so you'll have to bring your own wrench to connect your canisters to these ports. If you're not interested in canisters, but really have a thing for tanks, there's also plenty of air siphons, so you can fill a room with the gas you put in the tank, and air scrubbers, so you can filter out some of the less desirable air.

If air tanks still aren't a thing, there's a General Alert Computer, so you can...watch power/security/medical/fire alerts, probably.

Maintenance information

There is no vent. Wouldn't need one; it's got plenty of air.

The APC for this room is near the entrance into the area with the General Alerts Computer.
