The ship landing beacon tells shuttles where to land. Four of them must be placed on the corners of a clear area larger than 9x9 to create a landing pad. Shuttles will use the cleared area if possible.

Acquisition

Ship landing beacons can be constructed once the Electricity research project has been completed. They require Steel 40 Steel, Component 1 Component and 800 ticks (13.33 secs) of work.

Ship landing beacons will also spawn, in the correct orientation and on a floored landing pad, in Empire faction bases, often with a shuttle on it about to take off.

Summary

When 4 beacons are placed in a rectangle of minimum size 9x9 and provided with power the area becomes a landing pad. Shuttles will land there if possible for dropoff and pickup of characters for quests. It does not work for crashed shuttle quests.

The landing pad must be clear of any objects you cannot build ontop of such as trees, chunks and other buildings.
