Carry or Carrying is an action performed by pressing the appropriate button when available.

This action is used for moving certain stockpiles of items.

Once you have enough items in stockpile at a location, rather than having to pick each item up one at a time to move a pile of items, you can move the entire pile all at once.

A stockpile of MindIcon Stick.pngSticks would be an example of a group of items that can be moved with the carry action.

Mechanics[]

The Carrying Ability (DE 02) neuron gives the ability to carry. Additional neurons reduce the negative effects of the carrying action.

You have to be close enough to a stockpile for this action to appear.

Press the appropriate button and the stockpile will be picked up. You can then move around with the stockpile until you choose to drop the stockpile.

Moving while carrying items requires much more energy. Watch the energy gauge closely.

You are defenseless when carrying items as both arms are filled with the items being. Be aware that you will have to drop the stockpile to defend yourself.

Not all stockpiles can be moved. Heavy and/or bulky single items like a SenseIcon Thornbush.png Thornbush instead show the Grab ico.png grab action.
