The Crane is a Large module that can be placed on a Vehicle and certain Platforms. When paired with a Drill Head, it can be used to mine Resources at a faster rate than the Terrain Tool and even dig through hard sediment that the Terrain Tool cannot penetrate. The Crane has a Tier-2 attachment slot on the head for the Drill Head (though other things can be attached) and 2 Tier-1 slots on the side.

Usage[edit | edit source]

In order to control the Crane you must sit in its own seat (not the vehicle one) located at the base of the Crane. The Crane is operated by the cursor and always points toward the Terrain for easier mining.

  • Resources collected by the Crane will transfer to any empty storage slots, therefore it is highly recommended for a Crane to be used alongside a Storage module.
  • Just like the Terrain Tool, any unfinished stacks will be stored inside the Drill Heads own virtual inventory.
  • When mounted on the same Large Rover as a Soil Centrifuge, the Crane will instead send collected soil directly to the centrifuge's internal reservoir, only filling its internal inventory and then canisters after this has become full.
