Iapyx city is located in the midlands of Daedalus and is the center of the high density farming operations of the Daedalus midlands, as well as importing the feed stock from the highlands and exporting the produce. Out of the three cities on Daedalus continent Iapyx is the smallest and the least dedicated to heavy industry, the city is primarily a transport hub and secondarily a support-settlement with centralised facilities such as schools and hospitals to support the surrounding farming and forestry operations. Beyond than the support role, a wide variety of industrial vehicles are the main manufactured products of Iapyx, including the agricultural vehicles and cargo trucks. Though these might not be as glamorous as industrial mechs, landtrains and rail trains, they are vital for the smaller operations across the planet.
The city of Iapyx could pass for a small city in the highlands or even a rural old Earth city. Small offices, factories, even individual houses are the norm in this city which is at odds with other Daedalus settlements. The large stockyards and transportation infrastructure being the main exception though that is not unheard of in other cities. Iapyx does have a small airship port but makes very limited use of airships, since they are not suitable for transporting livestock, and the rail access is sufficient for the cargo and personnel transport needs of the city. Street lighting and outdoor lighting is abundant in Iapyx to offset the perpetual dimness of the overcast midlands.
The city founders specifically intended to resist the prevailing tendency of high-density industry and high-density settlements on Daedalus when building Iapyx. Even though farmers visiting the city might come from a large farming facility the intent was always that the city would put people first not industry. They did this by giving people space and making it a city of independent buildings roads and footpaths rather than linked complexes, covered walkways and tunnels. The philosophy being that sheltering people from the fog and cold makes it seem worse and enhances the tendency of residents to go stir-crazy.
