Supply crawler is one of the units in Alpha Centauri.

Description[ | ]

Supply Crawlers are useful for transporting resources. Supply Crawlers may:

  • Produce nutrients, minerals, or energy from any square on the map and send the resources to its home base, ignoring tech-gated yield caps (this makes them extremely useful early on for mines in rocky tiles, as the 4 minerals would normally be reduced to 2, and moreso if you have The Weather Paradigm, as you can get 6+ minerals or energy from what would otherwise be only 2 of each). Select the "Convoy" ('O') option on the Action Menu.
  • Disband themselves in a friendly base to yield their full mineral value towards the construction of a secret project or unit prototype.
