A specialized vehicle designed by the Basset Motor Society used in the construction of large structures.
In-game description

The Construction Vehicle (also known as CV)[1] is a large vehicle that is used to rebuild certain world structures and build key structures like Garrisoned Houses, Forward and Static Bases. These structures cannot be built with regular Hammers. The Construction Vehicle builds faster than a hammer at a rate of 2 Basic Materials for 1 second.

The CV has 2 seats: a driver and a crane operator. However, it can be operated by one person. You can switch seats by pressing Z by default. It has an inventory with 12 slots and requires Diesel in its inventory to be move but does not need Diesel for building with the crane. You must have Basic Materials in the CV inventory when you want to build.

The CV can be used to build structures that are buildable with a hammer as long as the proper research is done first.

The Construction Vehicle is slower than unencumbered infantry. If there are items in the vehicle when it is destroyed, some of them will be destroyed and some will drop around the destroyed vehicle.

How to Build With the Construction Vehicle[]

  • World Structures
    • Drive up to an unfinished world structure until the crane is touching it
    • Switch seats from driver to crane by pressing Z
    • Press E to set the blueprint of the structure down
    • When the blueprint is down hold RMB to rotate the crane so that the drill is facing the building. Then hold LMB at the same time to start building
    • You can let go of RMB when you start building.
  • Spawning Encampment and normal structures
    • Drive the CV to the desired location for the outpost or structure
    • Switch seats from driver to crane by pressing Z
    • Press B to open build menu and place down the Encampment
    • When the blueprint is down hold RMB to rotate the crane so that the drill is facing blueprint. Then hold LMB to start building
    • You can let go of RMB when you are building.

Note that damaged CV can still continue building.

Building the Construction Vehicle[]

Unlike other vehicles, The Construction Vehicle is not built in a Garage. Instead, it is built near a World Base, Border Base, or deployed Landing Ship. If the blueprint has been started, CV can be finished even if Base gets destroyed. If you want to mass produce CVs, you can do that at the Mass Production Factory, but the crates they're in have to be upackaged first at a Storage Depot to be used.

To start building the Construction Vehicle, the player equipped with a Hammer must be near a friendly World Base, Border Base, or deployed Landing Ship. The construction vehicle will show as an option in the build menu (B key by default). When selecting the Construction Vehicle from the build menu, the player can choose the location and orientation of its blueprint, like when placing other structures. After the blueprint is placed, players can build it using their hammers and Basic Materials from their inventories.

Notes[]

The Construction Vehicle's full name is "BMS Universal Assembly Rig".

Tips[]

  • It is always advisable to be escorted by ground troops to your building location
  • Ask for infantrymen to stand guard while you build
  • You cannot drive a CV created by the enemy faction, but you can access its inventory
  • Always leave CVs unlocked when you are done using them in a secured area so that others can use them
  • If you are fortifying a new base, and the proper research is completed, consider using multiple CVs to expedite the process instead of using hammers.
  • Construction Vehicles cannot be packaged.
