Overview

The Advanced Rotor Part attaches to the Advanced Rotor, and in most respects acts exactly like the Rotor's own Rotor Part. The Advanced Rotor Part can freely attach and detach from the Advanced Rotor, these two blocks together serve as Grid-to-Grid connection allowing both grids to access each other, share power and in connected properly share a Conveyor Network. Advanced Rotor and Advanced Rotor parts can be swapped between different Advanced Rotors (but not basic Rotors), when attaching an advanced rotor part to another advanced rotor once the the rod intersects far enough into the other Advanced Rotor - they will snap into place.

Tips

  • The Advanced Rotor is a popular way to way to form small-to-large grid connections, much like the Rotor. Allowing Large Ships to be formed of small parts or use blocks that are only available for smaller ships such as Gatling Guns, this can be used in a variety of creative ways such as building fully functioning user-controlled Gatling Gun Turrets that can use the Camera's zoom function to allow for precision shots. Which unlike the Rotor's version can actually be connected via conveyors and resupplied with ammunition.

Known issues

V01.079.008:

Rotors are currently known to be unstable in multiplayer, especially when used on a dedicated server (DS). They tend to move/vibrate unexpectedly, sometimes destroying themselves and damaging their surroundings in the process.
