As of 02/16/2019 (User:Bzero), Altihex is
Neutral.
Autobots within the territory are viewed indifferently, Decepticons within the territory are viewed indifferently, and Unaffiliated Inhabitants are undisturbed.
How do I change this?

Someone's got to inform the Mayor of this...

Altihex is home to most of Cybertron's deep-space research facilities.[1]. It borders Nova Cronum, Tyger Pax, Praxus, the Neutral Territories, and is a city-state on the Tri-Torus Loop.

Bad things happen in Altihex.

Description

Even from a distance the city-state of Altihex seems to swallow the whole of the horizon with its sheer length. More than a hundred kilometers across and yet only perhaps fifteen or so wide, Altihex is a tired oasis of cracked steel and worn copper in the desert by the shore of the Rust Sea. Stretched rapidly into a vast swath by outside mining interests and then collapsing almost as quickly as the mines ran dry and the more respectable citizens left in search of opportunity elsewhere, the city was left in a permanent state of overreach with merely a façade of the metropolis it once aspired to be. But there remained those whose lives were too small, whose ties to the city were too deep to ever leave, and to survive drove a new economy with a commodity even more valuable than the palladium that once made Altihex more than just a stopover between cities and worlds; silence.

Two industries remain, pumping credits into the hollow, corrupt local government from opposite ends of the city: the labs and research facilities to the east which allow scientists and inventors to test and experiment without being hindered by pesky ethical oversight or government regulations, and to the west, numerous gambling halls, racetracks, and combat rings where someone can burn a year’s pay in less than thirty seconds. As a result, enterprising private security firms have begun to take prominence in Altihex, making it a place of suspicion, greed, and on occasion, revenge.[2]

History

MUX History

In 2016, Seawing attacked Altihex to draw out the Autobots. When Dust Devil arrived to stop him, Snaptrap halted the attack, and approached Dust Devil to ask him to help gain access to the Chamber of Vector Sigma. Dust Devil was cagey, and offered to pass along a message and let Vector Sigma decide if Snaptrap could approach it. Snaptrap agreed for now, and let the young Autobot go to seek Vector Sigma out alone.

In 2017, planetary engines were activated beneath Altihex, moving Cybertron into orbit around Citctus Minor. A stellar strike impacted just outside the main city, burning right down to the Plasma Energy Chamber and restoring power to all of Cybertron. Later that year a team of Autobots destroyed the planetary engine in Altihex.
