A Beacon is a device used by workerbots which helps in defining the areas where they can work.
In a Worker Assembler, you can make a Beacon by adding:
You can instruct a workerbot to use a beacon by clicking the "?" icon beside any "Find" instruction and then clicking on the beacon. If you don't specify a beacon, workerbots will simply use the area you trained them at as their work area.
While holding a beacon, you can press 'z' to rename it and change its range (the range starts out as its highest setting). If you move a beacon, workerbots will automatically start working at the new location.
Note that General Storage buildings only hold 10 beacons each.
