The city underwent a major overhaul with the release of RESPO (June 2014), incorporating a map which will be used extensively for future missions and faction warfare. The new city map has completely revolutionized the way in which users interact with the city, whether it be through item finds or accessing other areas of the game.
- View Chedburn's announcement on the release of the city map here.
- You can find information on the city prior to the release of RESPO here.
Previously, the city was a complete wall of text, with no images. However, the release of RESPO completely changed that incorporating a fully interactive map in its stead. The city map is the foundation for the future of faction warfare, where factions fight over the city map to occupy certain areas.
The city map has been custom built from the ground up with the vision of future missions and faction warfare in mind.
With the release of Territories factions can now claim parts of the city to earn daily respect. Each faction's territory is viewable on the city map and there are 5 different options under the zoom tools to view how the city is divided:
- View territory: territories are shown separated by who owns them
- View block racket: view details of rackets and the associated blocks
- View block sector: view territories by what sector they are in; there are 7 sectors
- View block density: view territories by daily respect given with green being the lowest and red being the highest
- View block size: view by size
Territory Rackets are criminal enterprises which occasionally spawn on random territories.
Each block has a base respect of 15 and has multipliers based on its sector, size, and density listed below:
|1||x2.50 (Central)||x1.00 (Very small territory) (Smallest 5%)||x1.00 (Empty fields)|
|2||x2.25||x1.25 (Small territory) (Second smallest 20%)||x2.00 (Buildings)|
|3||x2.00||x1.50 (Medium territory) (Middle sized 50%)||x3.00 (Landmark)|
|4||x1.75||x1.75 (Large territory) (Second largest 20%)|
|5||x1.50||x2.00 (Very large territory) (Largest 5%)|
By default, the full territory view is disabled. There is an option to turn it on under the map.
Prior to the RESPO release, you were able to find items solely by visiting the city link, however, this has since been changed. In order to find items, you must physically search the city map by zooming in and clicking on an item if it appears on the map.
- Items only appear once a day.

Daily Items Allowance
Every player has the ability to purchase a maximum of 100 items per day from the shops in the City's East Side. Once this allowance has been used, no further items can be purchased in the East Side until the next Torn new-day, when the allowance is refreshed. Any attempt to buy extra items receives a "You cannot purchase more than 100 items per day." message. (This is unconnected to the Item Market/Bazaars where there are no limitations to the number of purchases.)
City and Dirty Bombs
When a Dirty Bomb is activated, several parts of the city are temporarily closed (Airport & all of the East side -except the Estate Agents)
For those who are still unable to get to grips with the city map there is an option to select the quick links at the city, this is somewhat similar to the old city, however, it is missing a few links that were available prior to the release of RESPO.
