Cleaning on server "Grid Core"

Deleting objects that do not have an owner and not having a Grid Core block
(There is no other type of object removal)

Cleaning on server takes place 5 minutes before restart

▶️ Check video: Rebels Tips – Grid Core

GRID CORE (GC) contains:
  72 GC Compo T1 – require        1 Iron ingot
  96 GC Compo T2 – require    0,1 aluminium and copper ingots
168 GC Compo T3 – require 0,01 palladium and platinum ingots


Server will delete 1 component every 1 hour (24 per day), it means that fully builded Grid Core will protect your grid from deleting for 14 days (contain 336 components which is equal to 336 hours which is equal to 14 days)

T2 and T3 components require rarer ingots so beginners have to refill Grid Cores at least every 72 hours (72 T1 components), but they can easy extend this time to 7 days by obtaining little aluminium and copper and build T2 GC Components.

Component consumption starts with highest tier inside Grid Core, which means Grid Core filled up to 14 days will start to consume T3 components first.

  • How to make them?
    Survival kit – Assembler
  • Deleting objects without an owner
    Grid must have at least one block in which Computer
  • Does Grid Core block have to be turned on?
    – no.
  • Should Grid Core block be 100% built?
    – does not have to, only need to in 1% of construction.
  • Pistons and rotors, need separate Grid Core?
    – you only need one Grid Core on main grid, same applies to the wheels.
  • Does block he need power supply?
    – no.
  • Does grid have to have power supply?
    – no.
  • Does grid core provide offline protection?
    – no.


To keep your grid, you must have a Grid Core block on it!
(object must have +10 blocks)


Grid Core does not prevent rule:
Objects and player information inactive on server +26 days are deleted.


How it works?
It is very easy!

Being on the server, enter “vote” in chat window
cast your vote and write “!reward”

You will get: 120 Rebels Components!

Rebel blocks limited in time (Rebel Components)

All rebel blocks will loose RC per hour (same as Grid Core) it means that they won’t be permanent anymore

Refinery, Assembler – has 840 RC and they will lose 5 RC per hour so fully filled can stay for 7 days

Drills, Welder, Grinder – has 72 RC under level of functionality and 96 RC above

– all small grid blocks looses 1 RC per hour
– all large grid blocks looses 2 RC per hour
– assemblers/refineries looses 5 RC per hour


Fully builded blocks provides 7 days of work for assemblers and refineries, without a need of adding more rebel components. 
All Rebel tools provide 4 days worktime in functional state, 3 days under functional.

– If block is not repaired – server will cause the block to disappear.

IMPORTANT – Grinding all rebel components UNDER functional line will turn them to the scrap (same way as power cells in batteries).

    Restoring objects-grids

    Rules for restoring objects-grids:

    • Objects are restored if they were destroyed by game/ multiplayer bug
    • Victim of Clang must know timeframe when object was last time present on server, and MUST know individual name of grid
    • Objects that crashed/vanished should be reported as soon as possible. Grid will be restored when one of Admins is available. Time limit is 48 hours.
    • Admin can refuse restoring grid if object got no individual name or timeframe of last seeing is not precise.
    • Object will be restored without subgrids
    • Objects stolen/destroyed by other players wil be not restored
    • Objects deleted by lack of grid core will be not restored
    • Objects that are often crashing will be considered as bugged and will be not restored
    • Objects with more than one subgrids are considered as clang altairs: will be not restored
      sub grids are grids connected to main grid through rotor, connector or piston. Use them on own risk.

    * those rules can be bend by admin. If there will be REALLY good reason, and/or player is real active in community, Grid CAN be restored, all will only depends from good will of admins

    Voxel cleaning
    • Server automatically cleans and regenerates voxel within a 5-8 km radius of the player or object
    • All Planets voxels will be reset on the same day [15] every months.
    • All Asteroid will be removed on the same day [15] every months.


      What will happen to objects in planets when cleaning the voxels?
      ● If it’s a station inside the planet
        – Object will be flooded with voxel (You can dig it out)
      ● If grid is a ship
        – Object will be impossible to unearth

      Grids covered by voxel or those in under voxel will not be restored.


    Production of tools
    • To make tools, use the Survival Kit

    Programmable block is destroying itself

    On server, a plugin has been implemented which destroys programmable blocks when they start generating too many calculations.

    • How to prevent it?
      – Try not to connect objects using connectors (an additional object, is additional blocks to be calculated).
      – Turn off programmable block, so that it does not work when you do not need it.
      – Do not use scripts that will surely cause huge calculations.

    I can not place a block (block group)

    Use mouse scroll up or down to switch between multiple tiers of block.

    I don't see (Edit) button on Programmable Block
