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.

When killed it drops Uranium.png 50 uranium + Plasteel.png 50 plasteel + Component.png 4 components + MetalDebrisA.png 4 Steel slag chunks

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. It is unclear if this also applies to crashed shuttles.

Version History

  •  ? - Plasteel yield incrased 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.
