Overview

The conveyor block is a device that allows the transfer of items from one inventory to another through conveyor ports. It also has no control panel or interface in which to interact with.

Usage

The Conveyor block automatically allows items to be passed through it once it is finished being built, and the grid (ship/station) it is being placed on has power. Conveyors are also capable of transferring Oxygen and Hydrogen.

Media

A conveyor block in the middle is connected on 3 different sides alongside a big blue default ship

Tips

  • Small Conveyor blocks and large conveyors cannot directly connect with each other. The only way is to use a Medium Cargo Container as the junction point between them.

Known Issues

  • All conveyors require power to function. However, interestingly enough the conveyor blocks do not have any power consumption. So while it does need power to pass items through it, it won't actually drain any power from the grid.
  • Update 01.110 - Conveyor blocks consume noticeable amounts of processing power, and therefore causing a lot of in-game lag.
