While the Monsterpocalypse has pushed science to boundless new frontiers, some long-running programs have lost funding. This has led to the abandonment of some structures no longer deemed necessary. The rarest of these facilities are the rockets that used to propel man into space. As they sit rusting, these lonely relics of a simpler age have attracted all manner of con men, crackpots, and dreamers. As the Monsterpocalypse intensifies, many of the abandoned rockets have been salvaged by those who want to use them to flee Earth. Few, if any, of the vehicles are capable of spaceflight, and most of the launches to date have ended in more catastrophes than less.
The Rocket Gantry is a new building that any player can add to their city. Though mistakenly deemed by some to be a means of escaping the destruction ravaging Earth, these malfunctioning rockets are quite capable of Razing other buildings when they inevitably misfire and come crashing back down to earth.
