Overview

The second largest of the Cargo Containers, only available for small ships only. Scaling at 3x3x3 blocks. The Medium cargo container is a block with a decent amount of inventory space used for storing components, ores, materials, and tools. It contains 2 large and 2 small conveyor ports.

Usage

The container can be manually inserted with items. However, this can be very inefficient. You can also connect it to other blocks to directly transfer items between them. Simply connect the cargo container port to either a block such as Refinerys or Conveyors connected to one with an inventory.

This cargo container is a 3x3x3 object and only available for the small ship variant, making it both 27 times larger than a Small Cargo Container and having 27 times the storage capacity, for only 6.5 times the weight. However, compared to the Large Cargo Container, it has only 22% of the storage capacity and size, but it is relatively inefficient as it still has 52% as much mass. The container serves as a general purpose cargo block, with both large and small conveyor ports.

Tips

  • If you leave containers as is, items will automatically pile up inside them. But they won't prevent any from coming in. If you want to make specific cargo containers, use the Conveyor Sorter block!
  • As of Update 01.093, stored items in inventories will add to the mass of the ship. The more items that are stored inside, the slower you will get!
