Bug (2.62): Desolation: Tray may not receive power on board your freighter. Looking for a workaround or reason at the time of this edit, but issue seems to be related to a corridor or room bug not allowing power to flow between rooms properly. Please report this bug here.

Additional information[]

  • When building a tray, red arrows will be displayed on the floor of the Cuboid Room indicating acceptable locations for the tray. These can be touchy, and there are certain locations where a tray cannot be placed, even though there is no apparent reason why not.
  • Power consumption is 20kP, and will use room for power source. An outlet for a power source exists if needed outdoors.
