Vehicles

Almost all of the vehicles in current use, including all of the vehicles listed here, have built-in AIs capable of piloting the vehicle under almost all circumstances. In most cases, passengers simply state their destination and the vehicle takes them there. Manual piloting is primarily used in emergencies or by people who prefer the exotic thrill of controlling their own vehicle.

High Mining Aerostat

These Aerostats are deployed on the gas giant planets, loaded with equipment to extract specific volatiles from the atmosphere.

Expensive Mobile Base

A mobile, self unpacking, headquarters 25m to a side for 12 morphs. It includes a lab, beds, and several high quality makers. 2hrs to un/pack.

Low Mobility Frame

A light partial exoskeleton. +4 meters per turn walking and +12 meters per turn running. Adds +20 to any roll to avoid tripping, falling, or losing balance.

Expensive Nonlethal Wobblycat

These fast-moving, cat-like bots are about 50 centimeters long (less the tail) and made of stealth materials. They fulfill a surveillance and occasionally anti-personnel role in urban operations. Wobblycats can run, jump, or climb unseen into areas where a human-sized infiltrator would never be able to go, but with much greater speed than nanoswarms.

Expensive Outsystem Hover

This vehicle flies 3 meters above the ground, and its top speed is 150 kph over any terrain. They are pressurized and hold six passengers and cargo.

Crazypants Outsystem Skimmer

A shuttle that can use hydrogen, methane, or water as reaction mass, allowing easy refueling. They can carry up to 8 passengers and 12 tons of cargo.

Expensive Passenger Airship

A massive transport that is buoyant in the Venusians atmosphere can carry up to 100 passengers and 20 tons of cargo.

High Passenger Balloon

An unpowered aircraft buoyant in the Venusians atmosphere. Primarily used by tourists and the wealthy.

High Portable Plane

Powered by superconducting batteries and with an exceedingly small but powerful electric motor, this light but durable propeller plane is made of smart materials that allow it to be swiftly folded up into a small portable package. Different versions are designed for flight on Mars, Titan, or Venus, each taking 10 minutes to assemble or disassemble.

High Powersuit

a sealed exoskeleton gives +10 to strength tests, doubles jumping distance, and +3 DV on unarmed attacks. Has food and air for 48hrs, radio booster and specs.

Trivial Recon Flyer

Micro-sized recon flyers with gas balloons and turbofans. Equipped with image recognition software. Useful for finding hidden items.

Moderate Recon Flyer Swarm

50 Micro-sized recon flyers with gas balloons and turbofans. Equipped with image recognition software. Useful for finding hidden items.

Low Recon Hopper

Mini-sized hopper bots for exploring surface terrain. Useful in no atmosphere. Equipped with image recognition software to find hidden objects.

Moderate Recon Hopper Swarm

20 Mini-sized hopper bots for exploring surface terrain. Useful in no atmosphere. Equipped with image recognition software to find hidden objects.

Moderate Recon Snake

Meter-long synthetic snake. Ideal for exploring cracks, holes, etc. Equipped with image recognition software to find hidden objects.

High Research Aerostat

These Aerostats are loaded with sensors and scientific analysis equipment.

Expensive Retriever

Small car-sized search-and-rescue robots. Equipped with integrated healing vat, shovels, firefighting and paramedic kits.

Low Robomule

Human-sized 6 legged simple drones designed to carry up to 250 kg of cargo over rough terrain. Also features a maker providing food for 4 biomorphs.

Expensive Rocket Buggy

This vehicle is the most common form of medium to long distance personal transport on Luna, and is in common on most other moons and large asteroids. On these airless worlds, a rocket buggy can reach orbit and return or take a parabolic path to any destination on that moon in less than an hour. This vehicle is also regularly used to travel between habitats that are less than 30,000 km apart.

Low Rocket Pack

This is a miniature metallic hydrogen rocket that the wearer straps to their back, with two rocket exhausts extending out to either side, away from the wearer's body or legs. Biomorphs and pod morphs can only safely use this vehicle when wearing a vacuum suit or some garment that is similarly heat resistant.
