    Welcome back, Galactic Survivalists!

    For today's blog, we would like to give you more insight on a device feature, a lot of you have asked for.

    Until now, you could make use of the device in question in NPC stations and some dungeons.
    Now, it will be available to you players: Teleporters!

    (New CV teleporter model)

    The Teleporters will come in two versions:
    • Teleporter for bases. Their range will be 30 LY
    • Teleporter for capital vessels. They will allow you to teleport within a sector, what means between Planet<>Orbit, Planet<>Moon, Orbit<>Moons etc. No need to EVA over to a space station anymore!
    There are a few constraints of course.
    • You can NOT teleport to another PLAYER or PLAYER FACTIONS teleporters! You can only use your own teleporters, those of your faction and from NPC factions you are at least in a friendly state.
    • It is not possible to teleport FROM or teleport TO a CV that is currently MOVING
    • It is not possible to use a CV or BA teleporter (as outgoing-transport) when
      a) shields are active
      b) the structure is under fire (cooldown of 20seconds after last “hit”)
    Incoming teleports currently can end on devices that are off or behind a shield - of course only if you ‘allowed’ to use the teleporter as a target.

    If there is any condition that denies you to use a teleport target, its destination simply will not show in the teleporter target overview.

    We hope you will like this little feature improvement.
    As usual, feel free to post an questions to the comments. :)

    Read you soon,
    Empyrion Dev Team

    Been wanting this for a while, thanks and it looks good also. Hopefully, the player moving why the ship is moving, the thing gets hammered out in the future so it won't be an issue maybe?

    This will make life so much easier so you don't have to land your CVs on planets to get to your bases and so you can teleport between planet side and moon bases for different ores(i.e. pentaxid) without the need for travelling around in your ship. As well as the ability to jump long distances without having to do short warp jumps to get there? Real time saver.

    Very awesome! Though personally I would like it if unavailable teleport sites were listed, with the reason for their not being available shown as well. That way I could see "Hey if I increase my rep with faction X I get access to this cool teleporter", or "Oh faction ship Y is currently going somewhere, I wonder where it's heading", or "Hmm, why are the shields on the faction HQ base up, is it under attack?"

    Very nice indeed. Now then. Release the alpha? :rolleyes:

    BTW, did you know that if you release a big update, you can advertise it for more sales which could be huge in a quarantine when people are bored and looking for something to entertain them with?

    :cool:

    Yeah, this will be a great addition. The EVa is fun, but can be treacherous.

    Oh the possibilities!
    I'm going to love this. Finally a good reason to leave vehicles behind too.

    YES! Big step forward; this will change gameplay quite a bit. Looking forward to playing with the new SP 'meta' (if one can call it that).

    @Hummel-o-War It's mid-April... I'm assuming you are planning on doing your live stream Q&A with Spanj before you release the Alpha, so could we get a date on that? Or at least an approximation? Please? :) Would be much appreciated, thanks.

    An actual reason to build a base after getting a CV.

    LY = AU?

    On our current server I have talked the admin into giving us teleporters between our bases which are in other star systems. Saves the pent on a 728 You AU jump

    Distance between solar systems in A12 = LY
    Distance inside solar systems = AU
