Dugong.png

Humpback.png
A former military vessel, WH4-L3 'Humpback' has been outfitted to withstand most of the dangers in deep Europa. Her relatively high velocity is offset by low maneuverability.

Shuttles[edit | edit source]

Shuttles are much smaller submarines used mostly as respawn vessels in multiplayer. They very often don't have their own nuclear reactor and their batteries are often fully charged and can store more kW power than the main submarine.

Respawn shuttles spawn only if a certain percentage of players has died. This can of course be changed to the server host's desire.

Upon spawning in the shuttle there will be fully stocked diving suits and underwater scooters, the number of spawned suits and scooters is according to the respawned player amount.

They can be used in case the shuttle is not able to dock safely to the main submarine.

Most shuttles have barely any hull, because of that they are easily sunk by most creatures, impact from rocks or other submarines. So knowing how to steer them is crucial.

BunyIp[edit | edit source]

BunyIP.png

The BunyIP its mainly used as a respawn shuttle. it contains three batteries that can run out of power quickly and three Diving Suits, its velocity its lower than most vanilla submarines, it is also dangerous when the crew its not trusted, as it can be easily flooded by opening the emergency hatch.

In 0.9.7 it will be replaced with a new shuttle.

Venture[edit | edit source]

Venture.png

The Venture its not so often used as a respawn shuttle, as it is really slow, although it contains a larger amount of power compared to BunyIp, it contains four Diving Suits, one Steel Cabinet with items for diving and two Supply Cabinets

Drones[edit | edit source]

Drones are usually really small submarines. Most have a coilgun, and they are controlled remotely through the main submarines, they are not made to transport humans or any cargo, most times their tasks its to explore ruins, find resources or even attacking creatures without causing damage to main sub. Only two of the six vanilla submarines have their own shuttle, the Remora and the Kastrull.

In Campaign, there is a way to recover a shuttle if it gets destroyed, in the Shop section you can choose to recover it for 1000 credits.
