This guidance beacon marks the position of a landing bay.

Unobtainable Object

Landing Beacon is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

A Landing Beacon is a special marker object found in space stations, NPC ships, and space encounters. It marks the location of a mech landing bay. While piloting a mech, a green arrow will indicate the direction of the landing beacon, if one exists in the world.

In the game assets, landing beacons exist only in shielded locations. However, even if admin commands are used to disable shielding, when broken the landing beacon drops nothing, so it cannot be picked up. The only method of collecting one is to spawn it using admin commands.

The landing beacon has a fixed unique ID, so spawning more than one into a world will cause the world to crash, sending players back to their ships.
