  • Requires Communication Center 1 or Larger Control Room
  • The Orrery requires a full 4x2 'squares' of room, and it's roughly 24 ft. height (or, about half of the room height when set to the lowest floor and highest ceiling).
    • Due to its large size, it can be somewhat unwieldy to place. Plan your room ahead of time to avoid unnecessary rework.
