Access to storage

Bots usually dont need acces to storages in their visible area. They will always move to the closest storage independent on how far away it is. Additionally the fertilizer bot is the only bot that uses ressources for actions, that doesnt need access to any storage.

Reaching spots

For a bot to reach a spot (like a crop patch) only a part of the crop needs to be in the range. Once this is the case the bot will reach the whole spot.

Feeder bot choosing crop

The bot will always use one of the 3 cheapest plants.

Water bot

The water bot leaves the station with water.

Guide to Bots Upgrades

How is the cost calculated

The cost of upgrades scales with two factors:

  • Tier of upgrades
  • Amount of upgrades of the same type (for the same robot)

Example of water bots speed upgrade:

  • 1 bot has 2 speed upgrades
  • 3 bots have 1 speed upgrade
  • 1 bot has 0 speed upgrade, but 4 water upgrades

This results in a total of 5 (speed) upgrades. This results in the next speed upgrade costing as much as the 6th value from the value lists above.

For this it is not relevant if you upgrade from tier 1 to 2 or 2 to 3, the value only changes based on the sum of upgrades done.

Robot speed

The robot speed (based on tiles) is the shown value divided by 100.

500.5

Water bots carry capacity

The following is true only for water bots carry capacities. While the game notes he has 16 capacity on level 1, in realilty as each plant needs 4 water, he only has 4 capacity.

Upkeep cost

The upkeep cost is always 1 + upgrades done on the bot.
