A spacer-tech shuttle designed for transit between surface and orbit, or between moons of a planetary system.
- 5 × 3
Found at Empire faction bases (though it will rapidly fly away it is possible to kill it), used in quests and called by the Call Shuttle permit. A shuttle called by permit will transport colonists, items, and animals on a one-way trip to anywhere you like within 70 world tiles. The shuttle can hold a total of 1000kg when loaded on a colony map, but as of 1.2.2900 it ignored this weight limit when called for a caravan on the world map.
- N.B. The crashed shuttle from the shuttle quest instead yields 35 plasteel + 20 steel + 5 components when deconstructed.
If there is a functional landing pad, set out with 4 Ship landing beacons placed in at least a 9x9 area, shuttles will attempt to land on that pad if possible. This does not apply to crashed shuttles.
- 1.1.2563 - Now avoids landing on crops.
- ? - Plasteel yield increased from 35 to 50. Possibly also in 1.3.3066
- 1.3.3066 - Shuttles leave 50 uranium instead of 100 steel when killed. Refactored shuttles into generic Transport ships. These ships follow a series of jobs which can be controlled by quest logic, UI, and Lords. Transport ships are tracked while flying, loading, unloading, etc.
