d100 Post crash space hab modules 1

So your orbital space habitat, asteroid colony, moon city, operational space hulk section, or generational starship needs a isolated civilization trapped in a habitat module possibly backwards for hundreds of years. I have done bunkers for post apoc games and Psychon could do this too but now my game is in the domain of TV serial Star Lost, movie Pandorum, rpg Metamorphosis Alpha and book Non-Stop by Aldiss. This will be handy. Once again like Dr who many contained a failed utopia who have failed to grow and are on the brink of transformation or destruction. Sky raider traveler modules by FASA reprint would be awesome - had geomorphs for huge asteroid hab with modules one of best Traveller products ever. Had Geomorphs. I wanna design some space geomorphs one day. You could use these for domed cities, in gammaworld or some post apoc setting im sure.

Post crash space hab modules 1 features urban type

Post crash space hab modules 2 features eco type
Post crash space hab modules 1 features industrial type
Then do mega space structure infrastructural tables 
d100 whats wrong with my bunker? - could be handy

Some all city with machines making food and air, others garden cities or surrounded by wilderness.  Eco habs more about preserving wilderness. Industrial more about manufacturing and ship systems
