Robot arms are a series of mechanical joints that enable a wide variety of automated tasks, such as ship-building factories and assembly lines. Each segment can be controlled individually through a player's universal tool, or by a device such as a lever, but these movements can also be computed automatically. Robot arms have a special tool-head at their end, which allows a user to equip tools to perform specific tasks. They can also accept a standard hardpoint onto the tool-head, which enables the use of such devices as a rangefinder or any of a variety of weapons.

Basic information

  • Robot arms consist of two types of joints, revolute and prismatic, which can be stacked together to form articulated arms of varying complexity.
    • The basic arm configuration has one or two telescoping segments, and an end segment with a revolute joint. More arms or tool holders can be attached to this revolute joint.
  • The base of any arm combination has to be attached to a special turret base joint.
    • There are four different sizes of the basic arm.
