In the meantime I have found out - it is controlled by the Control Tower, you need to select the vasimr ship and then you can send it to Mars always with one Mars related artifact. The turnaround is quite long, but it is reusable which is a big advantage over the Gamma 4 rockets.
Interesting. I have about 34 Vasimrs, but I haven't had any issues with shipped items not showing up. Since you're having success with the gamma 4, Chris needs to help with this. Does the Vasimr go faster when you load it?
Hi, thx for the quick reply.Yes, the animation of the space ship goes faster when i send it to mars. The Tower shows" mars return 77d5h (1883s)" but as i said it comes back without module an there is no Chance to Land one on mars. Aint got no Tower on mars, do i need one? (Mars is pretty New for me.)
I use an Samsung Galaxy s3 (gt-i9300) with cyanogenmod 13 (android 6.0.1) if it helps...
Thats exactly how I did it this time and the last couple of times. (Couldnt think of any other way.) This time it worked, even though I'm curios how it could pass the time, since i did not play long enaugh for the seconds to pass. Strange, but well THX. :)
One thing that could be useful is the ability to send a cargo pod via Vasimir to Mars. The cargo pod could contain any of the bulk or gaseous items, or even be empty. A set of empty cargo pods would be little more than 1 metal, 1 dollar, and 1 second in construction time for ~10. At Mars they would be scrapped for 1 'return trip' each.
This way you can transport stuff to and from Mars much easier. If Mars needs oxygen, you send a VASIMIR with a cargo of oxygen. If Mars needs metal, you send a load of metal. If Mars needs to send garbage back you send an empty VASIMIR, and the Mars base gets a return trip token that they can use to send garbage back.
