The Drone Port is a Small-sized Component.

Drone Ports act as an unpacking site and home base for up to two drone-type bots. Moving a packaged drone into a drone slot will unpack the drone and allow it to function. Moving a drone back into the item inventory will repack it, allowing it to be transported and reassigned.

Each Drone Port has a register for a target entity, commanding the port's drones to fulfill context-sensitive orders. Each model of drone has a certain range around their Drone Port within which they can work. A drone no longer in range of its parent port, or which leaves the reach of a Power Field, will immediately return directly to the port.

When a drone docks inside its home port it will empty its entire inventory into the parent unit. Any excess will be dropped onto the ground around the unit.

  • You don't need the Drone Port's Target Register to use Drones. Each drone can be individually ordered via its own Registers and Behaviors like any other bot. Assigning the Store register to another unit can prevent dumping of excess items.
