Quick Launch is a feature available in the Sandbox which allows a player to add station modules instantly to space. Please note that rocket parts and space craft are not available on the Quick Launch list.
You can only use this feature 10 times for free. Afterwards, you need to purchase Quick Launches via Get Add-ons to use it.
Alternatively, for every 10 regular launches you successfully complete, you will gain 1 free Quick Launch to use when you wish. You can also successfully launch and land the LP1 rocket to get a quick launch.
This feature was added to Space Agency on April 27th, 2017. As new station parts are added to the game, some are customarily added to the Quick Launch list.
Below is a list of parts available for Quick Launch:
- Space Station Hub
- Habitation Module
- Space Station Module
- Control Room
- Oxygen Garden
- Station Module Large
- Both types of regular Solar Panels
- Station Refuel Silo
- Both types of trusses
- All four types of MSS modules
- Voyager-X Antenna
- ADS Core Module and ADS Sensor Wing
After you have selected which new station part you wish to add via Quick Launch, you will be prompted to select WHERE you want the station part placed. The list of existing objects in your sandbox will be appear. Simply select which area you want the new part to be placed.
NOTE: Quick Launch automatically places the new station part to the left of the area selected, customarily about 1 unit away.
If there are other objects already in that general area, Quick Launch defaults to placing the new object further away to the left. In rare circumstances, Quick Launch may place a new part a considerable distance to the left (perhaps 10 or 20 units) to ensure it is safely placed into space.
WARNING: If the chosen target object is moving, then Quick Launch will match the new station part's velocity and direction of travel to that of the existing object. This may result in a collision with other nearby objects already in that immediate area in space.
It is also possible to use Quick Launch to place new station parts near existing objects already IN orbit around a planet. Quick Launch customarily places these new station parts DIRECTLY BEHIND the target object, matching its velocity and orbital distance exactly.
