Construction robots are priority targets of [[enemies]], meaning Biters/spitters will engage them even if there are [[pollution]]-producing buildings around. Construction robots have no means of defending themselves and do not run when they encounter enemies. Because they often operate at the "front", they are in high danger to be destroyed. Despite being a floating entity, ground units using melee are still capable of destroying them.

Construction robots are autonomous floating devices capable of repairing or building the player's structures. They are one of two type of robotic floating devices, the other being the logistic robots. They run on electricity from roboports.

Mechanics

Construction robots accomplish various tasks, including:

  • They repair damaged entities using repair packs.
  • They replace destroyed entities as long as they are available in a provider chest or storage chest.
  • They remove entities marked with the deconstruction planner. Removed entities are transported into storage chests. As of 0.15, this includes fish.
  • They add entities marked with a blueprint or placed as ghosts as long as these entities are available. Entities are fetched from the closest logistic chest.
  • They can carry and build up to four tiles at once, depending on the researched worker robot cargo size.

Construction robots are priority targets of enemies, meaning Biters/spitters will engage them even if there are pollution-producing buildings around. Construction robots have no means of defending themselves and do not run when they encounter enemies. Because they often operate at the "front", they are in high danger to be destroyed. Despite being a floating entity, ground units using melee are still capable of destroying them.

Researching more cargo or more speed for the logistic bots are also valid for the construction robots.

History

  • 0.17.75:
    • Construction robots will attempt to batch build tiles.
  • 0.17.0:
    • Construction robots can blow up cliffs.
    • Landfill can be built by construction robots and be included in blueprints.
  • 0.15.0:
    • Fish can be collected by construction robots.
  • 0.12.4:
    • Construction robots when used by the player will take primarily from the player's inventory, then the hotbar.
    • Construction robots will check if their target is still in the network area when they return to personal roboport for charging.
  • 0.12.0:
    • Construction robots can now be used by the player via a personal roboport embedded into a type of modular armor.
  • 0.11.17:
    • AI of the construction robots improved.
  • 0.10.0:

  • 0.8.1:
    • Construction robots now use the durability of the repair packs when using them.
