Summary

When building spaceships or stations, the pages collected here are a good place to start.

Editor tools

Station creator

Station creator is an editor tool, that can be used to construct large housings, landing pads, stores, or stations easily.
The station creator can be accessed from Capital Mega Stations, that have open rental lots.
The rental lots can be accessed through a terminal, from where the leasing contract can also be acquired from.
An owned rental lot can then be edited by using the station creator.


Manual tools

Bolt tool

The bolt tool is used to attach and detach bolts to and from hard substrates such as bastium and oninum, most often in manufacturing and construction work.
Bolt tools are common and useful tools in any kind of construction work, from fixing minor impairments on a spaceship or building and repairing space stations of any size.


Building tool

As the name suggests, building tools are used to either build or repair objects. The handheld model enables quick repairments even when travelling and when no repair shops are located close by.
Building tools use smelted and refined materials such as bastium for the repairments and building processes of objects. Without the required amount of material ingots the tool is unusable.


Cable tool

The cable tool is used to set up or remove and detach electric cables. The tool is commonly used in connecting devices together to build data networks and in other electrical installation work, such as setting up lighting.


Durability tool

The durability tool is used to determine weak parts of spaceships that are not able to withstand space travel.
The tool has been designed to prevent critical errors in spaceship construction and modification, and to improve the overall safety of space traffic for the general public.

How to use:

  • The tool can be used by simply pointing it at a spaceship and then activating it.
    • The tool highlights the chosen structure as:
      • Green = Durable
      • Red = Not durable

Note:

  • Spaceships need to have at least one thruster base with a thruster attached to them in order for the durability tool to be able to test the durability of the ships.

Spaceship Engineering

On this page you can find detailed instructions for creating and modifying spaceships.

Ships can generally be constructed by manually bolting objects and components together, or by manufacturing directly from a predefined blueprint.
Spaceships can also be bought from for example Mega Stations or directly from other robots.

The ship construction process from start to finish:

  1. Mine raw resources from asteroids
  2. Refine raw resources into usable Materials and metals.
  3. Print and / or Build resources into Devices and Parts.
  4. Bolt together Beam parts into a usable frame.
  5. Bolt additional components to the frame and Devices.
  6. Link required devices to power and propellant and add control devices such as a command centre, Flight control units and more.
