The Ejection Tube 1x1 was introduced in 0.6.4. It was originally meant for the VariTech transformation mod which had fallen into a dormant development state due to game bugs preventing it from being realized and completed. However, due to recent events of major game code changes and the newly established 2-week release schedule of Cosmoteer it was decided to move it into Abh. This is also part of the effort of using common resources.

Overview

This is an alternative part to the Explosive Bolt without doing damage and it can launch Drop Suit on one top.

Usage

It has two working options: eject a part from the top; complete all around separation. The eject button cause it to eject a part from its top connection. After ejection it will remain connected to the bottom side

The detonation button cause it to separate from all sides. Afterwards it will also be disconnected from the ship.

To use it with the Drop Suit the suit should be placed on its top. In blueprint mode an arrow will mark the top and direction, a launch sign can be seen on the floor and on the roof serving the same visual function.

A door must be place toward the suit for the crew to access it and man the suit. The eject button will only launch the suit on its top. To launch all suits on its side use the detonate button.

Building recommendations

  • Build like other external part if you intend to launch drop suits or to separate a ship part.
