Locomotive

From Sunless Skies Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Your Locomotive is the ship you use to travel the High Wilderness.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The vessel with which you'll brave the heavens is a (distant, more sophisticated) relative of the steam-powered locomotives that once thundered through the British countryside. Its plating protects you from the killing cold of the High Wilderness. Its engines devour the endless leagues of the sky.

Accumulate enough money, and you can buy a new vessel, something more attuned to your particular tastes. Something nimble, perhaps, that packs a punch? Or something built for distance, with plenty of cargo space?

Modules[edit | edit source]

Every locomotive has a different number and types of slots for modules. Each type can take different kinds of module: for example, most modules to increase your maximum Hull can only be attached to the "Plating" slot, whereas most that increase the size of your locomotive's Quarters can only be attached to "Auxiliary". Small Armaments can be attached to either sort of Armament slot; Large Armaments may only be equipped in Large Armament slots..

Equip your vessel as you see fit. Would you benefit more from reinforced armour plating, or the additional manpower allowed by external crew pods? ("Soundproof! Cosy! Detachable!")
