Star Wars: Planet Caravan
Cloud City was a Tibanna gas mining colony floating in the clouds of the planet Bespin, located in the Anoat sector of the Outer Rim Territories.
Cloud City was a completely man-made Tibanna gas mining colony of a few million tourists, workers and support staff hovering over the gas giant Bespin. It contained 392 levels, along with platforms and rooms for residents and visitors. The top 50 levels of the city were used as a luxury resort, renowned for its famous casinos such as Yarith Bespin and Pair O’Dice, while the lower levels were used as worker housing and for the mining and processing of Tibanna gas. Work areas in the lower levels were primarily operated by the sentient Ugnaughts and bathed in red lighting, which was the preferred color for the species and also increased their productivity. Being located in Bespin’s Life Zone, the station had no need of airlocks or life-support systems, with the atmosphere being comprised mostly of oxygen and acceptable levels of gravity and temperature. The station was situated 59,000 kilometers above Bespin’s core, while its disk was approximately 16.2 kilometers in diameter. 36,000 repulsorlift engines and tractor beam generators kept the giant city floating above the planet.
Popular tourist activities included gambling, hiring a cloud car for sightseeing the city and occasionally touring the local mining operations. With luxury resorts oftentimes charging as much as 5,000 Imperial credits a night. The Ivax Syndicate also maintained gaming houses on the station.
