Gravity is caused by mass. A planet needs no core, just enough mass to have high gravity
nothing going on here

The key to Vector Sigma was destroyed by Commander Silverbolt back in G1, so all access to new troops was now limited to the Matrix.

After the end of the Great War and the signing of the Pax Cybertronia, Cybertron needed to be repopulated. Two facilities were set up:

1. The MATRIX (The Maximal Activation Transferring Recycling and Infusion eXchange)


2. The PIT (The Predacon Infusion Terminal)

They were linked to Vector Sigma, and using a shell program of sorts, known as The Oracle, they hacked into Vector Sigma and allowed the Maximals and Predacons to release new Sparks into the world.

The process was overseen by the Maximals, as they didn't want control of the flow of Sparks to be controlled by the Predacons so they couldn't build up a new army.

Or something like that.
That's actually a pretty clever theory. By the way, did you come up with Matrix and Pit being acronyms for the facilities (I already knew that they were the names), or is that actually something official that I didn't know about?

Cheers Mate.

Yeah, the acronyms are mine. I've been working on a story that ends G1 and traverses the 300 year period between it and Beast Wars for a long time, so I've had plenty to think about

I was recalling them from my notes. I've actually written:

Maximal Activation Transference Reformatting and Inception eXchange.

I can't find much on the population. Not really anything.

I did find this:

Cybertron, as presented in the original The Transformers animated series, was considerably smaller than the planet Earth. Entirely metallic on the surface, some of the lowest levels of Cybertron consist of rock and dirt, suggesting a natural beginning to the planet. Its gravity is light enough that humans are able to traverse the surface without any trouble, and it possesses a breathable atmosphere. Water is not uncommon on the planet - lake and rivers have been shown to exist, albeit sparingly. Cybertron is orbited by at least two unnamed moons, but its own place in the cosmos appears unfixed.

Early war history records Transformers

The "early war history records Transformers" are members of the Transformer culture that lived around the start of the war.

I like to think it has about 1,500. I like a small population

It seems to be a popular figure. Personally it seems a bit too low. I'd put them at least in the 100,000. It was a war, but I don't think it was genocide to that scale.
