Description

The Pod Launcher deploys a singular transport pod (1 launcher = 1 pod) which must be placed where the rocket icon appears. The transport pod will change color from red to green as a positive signal. Each launcher can be filled with a maximum of 150 chemfuel which allows travelling to a distance up to 66 tiles away.

A slide bar can be used horizontally which automatically calculates for you according to your need so that you don't waste fuel/time.

As the description says, launchers can be grouped but they have to be "adjacent", which means they must share one tile length of common border. Touching corner-to-corner or via a Transport Pod touching both launchers will not work. In effect, grouped launchers can only be places in a row lengthwise or in a "spooning L" formation (where the foot of the L is the Pod).
