Default GURPS City Stats for Space Colonies

I don't have it yet so would GURPS City Stats be useful for writing up places like Islandia or Silas Duncan Station?

I assume yes (possibly with some additions), but just wanted to confirm before a purchase.

I pointedly included rules for "terrain" for everything from hollowed out asteroids to aerostats floating in the stratosphere of Venus, so I'd say yes.

Absolutely. If it's a "city," of any sort, you can stat it up with City Stats.

Thanks for the info.

I was reading through THS Deep Beyond the other night and thought it might be a good idea for each entry on a colony (and for that matter the colonies and cities in In The Well and High Frontier) to have a simple table that summarised key details. Looks like City Stats will point me in the right direction.

Yes. I've statted up some space-bound cities (not for THS) - you can see them here.
