Disabled: Not currently available
Dispensing Pod is currently disabled from the game. Assets for this exist within the game files, but will not be encountered through normal gameplay.
Dispensing Pod was an object that was found in scifi dungeons. Each scifi dungeon contained a single dispensing pod. Referred to as dungeonpod in the source code, dispensing pods were effectively disabled when scifi dungeons were removed from the game.
When interacted with, the dispensing pod would scatter matter blocks around the room in an explosion that dealt significant damage to entities near the pod. After ten minutes, the dispensing pod would reset, allowing additional matter blocks to be harvested. Using a mining tool on the pod would cause it to break and drop nothing, hence dispensing pods were never obtainable.
As of the current version of Starbound, some mods that allow the spawning of objects (such as the Spawnable Item Pack) are able to spawn placeable "dispensing pods". When activated, these pods produce an explosion that scatters lava instead of matter blocks. While they share the name and look similar, these are not the same object as the dispensing pod in beta; instead these objects are called volcanopod in the source code. Like the original dispensing pods, these pods will will break and drop nothing if a mining tool is used on them.
