The Storage block functions like a persistent, dynamic inventory. This enables the user to store items from their inventory in it. You can expand its volume size by linking it to Cargo Space blocks. Press R to access. Storage blocks can also act as filters, and can be linked to; Salvage systems, Logic blocks and Factories. This makes them quite useful in various automated setups.

Usage

Basic Functionality

A Storage block is capable of acting by itself. Without connecting any Cargo Space blocks, a Storage block is capable of storing 100 mass units. To increase the storage capacity of a Storage block, connect Cargo Space blocks by first selecting a Storage block with C, then selecting Cargo Space blocks with V. There is no limit to how many Cargo Space blocks a Storage block can control. Each connected Cargo Space block adds 100 mass units to the maximum storage capacity of a Storage block.


Cargo Bleed

When the maximum cargo capacity for a Storage block is exceeded, a Storage block will bleed (lose/ delete) blocks from its inventory until the maximum capacity is no longer exceeded. By default, when over capacity, a Storage block will bleed 10% of its inventory per minute.
