Are There Posts About Rocket Automation Without Bunker Doors

Recommended Posts

Is there any automation needed if there are no bunker doors? You need to detect a rocket coming back and open the bunker doors using a scanner if you want them to still exist after the rocket returns. Otherwise, you don't build any bunker doors and don't need that kind of automation. Rockets don't get damaged by meteors and any ladder that is "broken" is still functional.

Do you mean something else when you refer to "automation" ?

@sakura_sk

Good input. Thx.

How do you deal with rocket embodiment, is it possible to use only one robo miner.

If you put a signal switch to launch the rocket, I don't think you need a robo-miner. When the rocket gets a signal to launch, it launches and the engine clears any regolith at the bottom.

You mean the rocket launches even if the rocket is embodied?

I'm pretty sure it does, if you use automation to launch it (I mean it would probably not launch if you click the button in the starmap menu)

Rockets launch even if they are entombed (this is for all 3 i.e. steam,petrolium and hydrogen engines which usually happens when the bunker doors open to launch them)

Only issue with a rocket entombment is steam engines for steam rockets which can't fill the engine if its entombed by even one tile

(After the rocket is fully filled,the steam rocket will still launch if it gets entombed).

Please explain why you need automation and bunker doors for rockets?
