Transport shuttle system guide

Currently,the shuttles are being reworked for the upcoming map. This guide will be used still until changes are added that are needed for adjustments.

How to use a shuttle?

This is only to use on an already working shuttle system.

To move a shuttle you need the acces to the Bridge Computer. Use the Bridge Computer then choose your destination by cliking on it. Buckle up to a seat and wait.

If the dock you want to go is not listed it's probably because their is already a shuttle park there.

How the system work?

  • The shuttle transport system allow you to teleport parts of the map (your shuttle) between two Docking beacon.
  • The part of the map you can move are delimited by projected area from the beacons(There is 3 possible size for the projected area 5*8/7*8/9*10), mainly to prevent lag and people strapping engines onto their stations.


  • The beacon is a machine that you can build and create an project area to allow a shuttle to move/teleport a section of the maps/shuttle to another beacon location. There are 4 part for the system.
  • The Project Area by the beacon.
  • The Dock is the part allows the connection between shuttles and the rest of the station.
  • The shuttle is the part of the map you can move.
