Matter transmission facility. Allowing for instant transportation over short distances.

Commonly used to transport personnel and vehicles from a planet's surface to a spacecraft in orbit or vise versa. With technological advancement and access to io tubes, it becomes possible to equip spacecraft with transporters.

For information about how to use transporters, see the Transporter Station page.

Spacecraft

When a spacecraft has a crewman is operating the transporter station, it is possible to request a transporter beam from the ship.

A spacecraft with a working transporter does not require a door to the outside. In order to board a just-built ship with only a transporter, you need to use the transporter console either on a station, on another spacecraft that's already crewed, or in an airport terminal.

Space Stations

Hailing on the Communication's Hail channel will open private channel with all space stations in range. It is then possible to request a transporter beam on those channels if they have a working transporter.

Airport Terminal

An airport terminal may contain transporters depending on the building blueprint used.

The transporter station is not manned, but it is possible to request a transporter beam on the Communication's trade channel.

Apart that it is possible to manually use the transporter station just like a normal transporter.

Transporter Types

There are 2 types of transporters.

Personnel Transporter

The personnel transporter is the default transporter type. It can transport any creature that enter the portals.

It requires transporter pads to be associated with the transporter station in order to function.

Vehicle Transporter

Vehicle transporters are used to transport vehicles to and from a spacecraft. Requesting a beam up while seated in a vehicle will inform the crew to beam up the whole vehicle into a parking spot of the vehicle's type.

The vehicle transporter does not require transporter pads, instead it requires the spacecraft to have parking spots for the individual vehicle type. Any associated transporter pads are ignored.
