Archives » What is the purpose of the '' Class A Cargo Container ''
Bonowhemm Oplo

Yeah uhhhhh, what do you do with it?


Teyacapan Quetzalxochitl

The purpose is to contain cargo.


Bonowhemm Oplo

Obviously, however, how can it do that if it cant move. Seems pretty usless.


Teyacapan Quetzalxochitl

It can be moved by ships equipped with a docking bay and sufficient interior space and weight capacity.

You can use it to store items/materials basically.

In other words, its an overly expensive escape pod.


Bonowhemm Oplo

Can they be launched from the ground. I suppose it would be handy for capital-class transports or large freighters, but only if it was loaded from the ground.


Well, if you took it to the ground, sure, you could load in on the ground. However, not sure any of the ships big enough to carry it, that can carry it, can actually land anyway.

You can load it in space. Most would use it as stated above as larger escape pods.

Looking at the cap ships, there are no ships that are even remotely publicly available that can both land, and carry that ship.


Bonowhemm Oplo

Hence why the cargo pod would need to be launched from the ground.


Or, keep it in space and use smaller ships to ferry supplies between it and the ground


Cargo containers were added to the game in order to hold RMs from space station recycling. They are created in space, so they don't need to be lifted from the ground.


And once you empty one, voila! A container that can hold enough weaponry, armour and other stuff to fit an entire army out.


They're not fully implemented yet, so they're temporary space storage.

and what kind of ship we can use to transport it?,


They're not fully implemented yet, so they're temporary space storage.

Means that their stats and use might change, we only can wait for them to be fully implemented.


What ship? Any ship that has sufficient cargo capacity and a tractor beam. Stats are in the rules pages.

If you are extremely lazy, then you will be looking at an MTC or larger.

Am I the only one who is horrified by the expense of these over sized escape pods??? I mean they can hold tons of stuff, but that is it. Its like buying a personal storage unit for $10M.

Expense? They are created from recycling a station. They're free....
Not our fault some people sell them for high prices.

They are only worth what people are willing to pay. ;)
