Summary



Starbase cargo beam .png

The Cargo beam device emits a laser which locks onto any object on its trajectory.
The cargo beam device is most commonly used in spaceships designed for cargo transportation.
For safety reasons, the locking laser does not affect endoskeletons.

Basic information

In order for the cargo beam to lock onto objects and to be able to lift or otherwise move them, at least three beams should target the desired object from different directions.The beams should simultaneously hit the object from at least roughly 90 degrees difference from each other.
E.g. if the object is a dice-shaped cube, the cargo beams should target the cube at least from three different sides.

Device fields
