The Mobile Vehicle Bay is a Deployable item that allows the player to construct vehicles. It can be crafted by using the Fabricator. It takes up nine inventory slots while in the player's inventory.

The player must scan three Fragments to obtain the Blueprints for the Mobile Vehicle Bay. These can be commonly found in Wrecks.

Uses Edit

When released by the player, it will float to the surface and start to unfold itself. It can then be boarded with LMB. Using the display, the player can construct a Seamoth, Cyclops, Prawn Suit, or Rocket Launch Platform if they have the required materials and blueprints.  

The base of the Mobile Vehicle Bay houses four "Printer Pods"[1] that will activate themselves and float above the Mobile Vehicle Bay when the player approaches. When the player selects a vehicle to construct, the Printer Pods will swarm out in front of the Mobile Vehicle Bay to build the vehicle.  

The player can pick up the Mobile Vehicle Bay by looking at the metal platform and pressing LMB.  

It is currently possible to deploy and trap the Mobile Vehicle Bay under a Moonpool, allowing vehicles to be constructed at any depth.
