Factory Floor PlanEdit
Above the ground floor is the upper level of the factory. This consists of a Franz Hopper's machinery is located below the main level, and is normally accessed walkway bordering the inside of the building. The upper level is where the bridge meets the factory, and hence where the characters normally enter; to get down to the ground floor, they swing down on cables. by the lift, although an alternate route, which goes through the Boiler Room, exists.
Directly below the Lab is the Scanner Room, which can also be accessed by a hatch from the Lab.
The bottommost room is the Supercomputer Room, which contains the supercomputer. It is accessible using a hatch from the Scanner Room. Jim can fit inside this hatch, though we have never seen him go into the hatch.
The Factory in Code: LYOKO is based off a real factory in France called the Renault automobile factory. The Factory was founded before World War II, and produced many vehichles during that time period. Later in 1992, fhe factory shut down and was abandoned, just like in the show. In 2001, Antefilms used it as the base model of the Factory in Garage Kids and later Code Lyoko (which looks near perfect as shown in the images). Unfortunately, in 2005, it was demolished to create (other things) a museum, and an apartment complex. However, the artifacts that were originally going to the art museum, were later sent to a museum in Venice instead. Now all that remains is dirt and the entrance.
Before it was demolished, the real factory was an elabrote maze of steel, it contained many floors along with a basement and controle room, there was a car assembly line, on the top story there was a painting room, and it also contained machine shops and dormitories for the workers. The factory was also equiped with four very large back-up diesal generators (possibally made by the British company L. Gardner and Sons Ltd. which ceased engine production in the mid 1990s.) and a tram which ran along the roof.
