The Assembly Station is a crafting station for big projects. The Assembly Station was left behind by Pa after the player inherits his Workshop. Similar to the Worktable, this is a one-of-a-kind object and cannot be created. The Assembly Station can be upgraded to higher levels, allowing for larger projects and automation. All projects crafted from the Assembly Station are crafted instantly, provided that all required materials are in possession.
To move the Assembly Station to another location on your property, visit A&G Construction. Next to the Upgrade button is a Move button. When you click on it, an overhead view of your property will appear, and you can move and rotate the Assembly Station.
The Assembly Station is where the complex recipes from the Workbook are built, such as other crafting stations and many large items for missions. You can find new recipes from the Research Center in exchange for Data Discs.
Upgrading the Assembly StationEdit
The Assembly Station can be upgraded twice at the A&G Construction. The size of the Assembly Station Lvl 2 is 12 x 13 squares. The Lvl 2 upgrade is required to complete many missions, perhaps the earliest being Saving the Tree Farm.
Assembly Station Lvl 3 was introduced in Alpha 7.0 (date needed). The size of the Assembly Station Lvl 3 is roughly 21 x 14 squares; it is not a complete rectangle so 22 squares are open along the front side. There are two separate assembly areas. The right-hand side works as before, with the player building an item by adding materials to a blueprint. The left-hand side is automated, enabling players to create multiples of a given blueprint. The assembly station takes 45 minutes for Lvl 1 blueprints and 1 hour for Lvl 2 blueprint. To begin production, all materials need for all requested copies must be available.
