Adds a Construction Tower with a large construction area of 500x500 but with a small logistics area. It has no space for robots but it charges them faster.
Useful for City Block Bases when you want to use your bots for building but not for logistics.

Adds also a Drone Charging Station. It has the same size of the logistics area than the Construction Tower but with a way smaller construction area. It can be used to reduce the amount of needed Construction Towers and to charge the robots faster.

To reach the corners of the Construction Towers construction area all 6 levels of the Better Robot Battery technology needs to be researched. This feature can be disabled in the settings (see FAQ)

  • Custom setting for the range of the construction tower.
  • Adjusted recipes for different mod packs. Which one are you interested in?
  • Add a radar inside the Construction Tower so the hole construction area is visible (optional)
