Rocket-Silo Construction

Building a Rocket Silo is now a 6 stages process. Each silo needs to be excavated, filled and built, while requiring a lot of power, materials and generating pollution. Custom Space Exploration/Bob&Angels compatibility, should work with everything else too. News: new graphics by snouz

After you craft a Rocket Silo, instead of just placing it, you place a Silo Excavation site that will only become a working silo after 6 steps of excavation, material filling and building, that require great quantities of materials, energy and rejects plenty of pollution. The 6 building stages are:

  • Stage 1: excavation : remove enough stone from the site.

  • Stage 2: add concrete, stone brick, steel, and iron stick. NEW : add water

  • Stage 3: deep excavation: remove more stone from the site.

  • Stage 4: add concrete, steel, pipes and pipes-to-ground.

  • Stage 5: add concrete, steel, pipes, iron-plates, copper cables, green & red wires.

  • Stage 6: add refined concrete, electric engines, processing units, radars, advanced and electronic circuits.

After that, the silo will be ready to launch rockets into space.


  • Protect your construction site: biters may not like the pollution it causes.

  • If you remove a silo excavation site, the progress and materials used will be lost and you'll need to start again. There is a mod option do make the construction stages non-removable. This prevents losing materials.

  • Now compatible with Space Exploration and bobs/angels mods (their materials will be required).

  • You can disable Cargo Rocket Silo (Space Exploration) construction on mod options.
