Following the end of the Locust War, rather than reclaim and rebuild old cities, the COG adopted the policy of constructing entirely new settlements using state-of-the-art automated technology and construction techniques. Settlement 5 was one of the latest examples of this approach. After construction was begun in 42 A.E. with the erection of its central tower, the main construction hub, Settlement 5 was near completion less than two weeks later, with the Windwall already operating and the inner-most districts ready for habitation. This rapid pace was made possible by DB Industries' DeeBees and autonomous construction equipment. Settlement 5 was intended to house a seed population of 730 COG citizens.
JD Fenix, Del Walker, Kait Diaz, and Oscar Diaz raided Settlement 5 in order to obtain its Fabricator, an advanced piece of COG technology capable of producing almost any device. They needed it to produce a capacitor for their village's electrical generator.
