What are Bots? Edit

Bots are units that work similar to colonists, in that they can execute certain tasks, such as building, transporting resources, or mining.

Bots are more efficient than human colonists in many ways. First of all, they have no needs such as food, water, oxygen or sleep, and will tirelessly do their task. Secondly, they can travel faster than humans outside of the base, and are impervious to the effects of solar flares (even though they are still susceptible to sandstorms).

Bots are dependent on two meters, their Condition meter and their Integrity Meter. The Condition meter shows the Bot's immediate wear, and drops relatively fast. When the meter fully drops, the Bot stops in place and ceases work. The Condition meter can be raised back by an Engineer interacting with the Bot, or from a Robot Auto-Repair the Bot can move to before the Condition meter completely empties.

The Integrity meter shows the bot's total wear. It drops much slower than the Condition meter, but it cannot be replenished by any means. When the Integrity meter empties, the Bot is declared irreversibly damaged and the resources used in its production can be recycled.

Types of Bots Edit

There are currently three types of Bots in the game:

Bots CarrierBot

Carrier Bot Edit

Carrier Bots can only transfer resources around the colony.

Carrier bot

Carrier Bots can be built at any Robot Workshop or purchased from Trading Ships, while new colonies start with one Carrier Bot for at least Class D planets.

Bots ConstructorBot

Constructor Bot Edit

Constructor Bots can build buildings, akin to an Engineer.

Constructor bot

Do note that while a Carrier Bot is specialized to only carry resources, a Constructor Bot is able to both transfer resources (building and repairing materials only, i.e. Metal, Bioplastic, and Spares) and build.

Constructor Bots cannot be immediately built at Robot Workshops. A patent for it is required, which can be purchased from a Trading Ship, while Constructor Bots themselves can also be purchased before the patent is acquired.

New colonies start with one Constructor Bot for at least Class D planets.

Bots DrillerBot

Driller Bot Edit

Driller bot

Driller Bots can mine for ore at Mines, akin to a Worker. Because of their independence on resources, Driller Bots can get into a Mine and work continuously until they need repair or are irreversibly damaged.

Driller Bots cannot be immediately built at Robot Workshops. A patent for it is required, which can be purchased from a Trading Ship, while Driller Bots themselves can also be purchased before the patent is acquired.
