Level 4, the Storage Level There are no vital systems, points of interest, or even a cyberjack on this level. This level has one simple purpose, storage. Before the disaster, this level was packed with all sorts of junk, from food, to fuel, to electrical equipment. S.H.O.D.A.N. has however, disposed of most of this stuff, but has left things of far more value to you: hardware, patches, weaponry, explosives, and ammunition.

The level is loosely divided into three branches. Figure 5.0 shows a view of the level's main junction point. Two of these branches contain the major storage areas, numbered one through seven. The third is a type of storage command center, housing the CPU nodes, healing booth, and the executive storage officer's office, which as you can see from Figure 5.1, is not only a mess, but still holds valuable items.

The storage chambers themselves have several different looks and styles. From simple storage bays with security tight as a nail, shown in Figure 5.2, to huge chambers with looming ceiling, filled with catwalks and force bridges, like the one shown in Figure 5.3. These storage rooms can also be as small as a closet, like the one in Figure 5.4, or death traps, specially engineered by S.H.O.D.A.N. to make your life miserable, as you can see in Figure 5.5. The storage level makes major use repulsor lifts , from personal elevators, like the ones that can be taken to the storage office, and healing both, or like in Figure 5.6, which is used to transport heavy cargo, equipment and other storage crates. Even with the repulsor technology, some storage rooms still make use of the tried and sure technology of ramps, as you can see in Figure 5.7. Search out all of the storage bays. Other useful items, like keycards, plastique, and hardware are most likely available here.

Even though there are no vital systems on deck, S.H.O.D.A.N.'s grip on this level is as strong as ever, and you will find several traps, mazes, and many hostile cyborgs waiting to serve your destruction. As you can see from Figure 5.8, S.H.O.D.A.N. is watching you.
