We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

The Beacon is an item that can be used to mark a location on the planet. It is visible even from far away through its color mark. The color of the beacon can be changed among a range of colors, in order to differentiate them.

Due to the fact that the Habitat, Vehicles and other players are marked already from a distance, the only purpose to use a Beacon is to mark an interesting location that isn't near any of these three things. However, the beacon is visible from farther than these three other elements, which gives it a better visibility.
