Military Escort ship captured :) How to disable booby trap :)
Hi just captured Military Escort ship and know how to disable booby trap... it as follows, firstly enter ship and find cockpit, secondly access systems, disable thrusters with a number after them ie: thruster15 is the ones i see in systems there are 3 with same name one of these is the booby trap when you activate dampeners these fire to slow you down but one of them are hidden inside ship so they will cause explosion so shut these thrusters off and you disable booby trap :) i suggest you turn one on first look at outside ship to see which engine is now on, rename that one and then turn on 2nd one and look outside again to see if that is one of outside ones if you have done it to the first 2 engines then they are good and it is the 3rd one that is booby trap rename to booby trap and it will be easier to find once you open hull.

you can now safely put dampeners on and take the ship to your platform where all you need to do is find where the booby trapped one is situated hidden inside ship so take a block or 2 away and when you find it then remove it and fill in spaces that are left with whatever you want.

Now you have a ready made military vehicle.

Cheers and happy capturing.

UPDATE: Location of booby trap is to the left of assembler inside aimed at warhead hidden behind interior wall to left of assembler so remove interior wall next to assembler then dismantle warhead and thruster behind warhead then rebuild as you seem fit :)

UPDATE 2: There is another warhead hidden above catwalk in front of that interior wall so make sure you dismantle catwalk in front of interior wall and dismantle warhead above as well.

on the mining hauler the booby trap is the single "small thruster". it's located in back, behind the reactor so as soon as the ship starts to "break" this thruster kills your reactor.
deactivate it and you're safe. i'd even say, let it in there in multiplayer and reactivate it if you leave your ship. if someone tries to steal it and doesn't check the thrusters, he won't come far with it

I just captured a huge military transport, it appears to have 5 unaccounted thrusters. I assume they are boobytraps. Now I just have to find them. XD

Thruster #33 - Sneaky devs put thruster facing directly down at cockpit
Thruster #30 - Behind the only red heavy armor block (with a warhead) on front of ship
Thruster #28 - Base of large cargo container in front hanger bay (has warhead)
Suspect #31 and #32 but haven't found them yet.

still yet to come across the civilian transport, have sorted all the others out just need that last one to capture :)

I was SOO unaware that the military transport would blow up... I got that as my first transport on my survival, and brought it back home with one of my ships on the back of it. I got it home, and was parking it in a hanger with all my 4 of my other ships, when I hit a button and it blew up everything.... It was a small hanger so everything was close together. I lost everything I had made, and everything is beyond repair.... I'm going to be about 1000 times more careful when the devs add the next cool thing to the game.

oh man that would have sucked big time, my rule of thumb is anything i build or capture i move to a secluded spot away from platform or ships not too far but far enough where if something goes wrong it won't damage anything, until all testing is done and ship is considered safe to dock back at my shipyards.

i think if the trhuster damage is of the traps don't work i got 6 out of the 9 ships already stopt and docked and no BOOM on any one of them so me and my buddy wore all like where are the traps and every time we stopt it there is no problems but i have to say the military ship is heard to controle and it's freaking big hahaha but the getshing continuse man it's heard to type when you just woke up haahah

Are these traps thrusters which face a mine?
Why does that not blow up the ship while you have not captured it?
neotheshitman Mar 28, 2014 @ 9:01am 
because the dempners are off so it's not using the trhusters but when you turn them on it will force the trusters to trust backwarts to stop the ship so i think it works that way because i have the trhuster damage off and no traps exploded on any ship so i think if you have this option on they will explode or i just found 6 diverend ships with no traps on them thets wat i am wondering is the traps random or not so do the ships all have traps or there are 2 fursions of every ship one with a trap and one without a trap?

There is more than that. I've lost 6 of those Military Escort ships because of different fails like running into the explosive myself or running into the engine... Disabled 2 of the explosives but it's still blowing up.

Traps are there but if you have thrusters damage off no traps will go off, turn on your thruster damage in options and all your captured vessels you have will explode so watch out not all go off just because of dampeners either the big military vessel has a thruster that is hidden above cockpit aimed downwards so as soon as you press up KABOOM! As that thruster will fire downwards and destroy cockpit. You need to find all traps and dismantle them.

On the Military Transport there are five traps. One is a oblivious red block on the back of the ship. Theres one thruster faceing down on the cockpit. One under the Container in the main room at the far front, and the last two are on the sides one block below and back of the rocket launchers on the front of the ship.
