The United Worker's Union Light Cargo Truck is a simple, easy to build, and survival ready light truck capable of holding 32402L of ore or other cargo. Careful design and selection of features ensures that the driver can confidently tackle rough terrain and heavy loads with ease.

Features include:

* Six wheels for a stable, smooth ride through rough terrain, with power to climb hills even while loaded.
* Scrape-free design ensures that the driver can confidently climb or reverse over 22.5 degree (2x1) ramps into bases and ships without accidental damage to the cockpit or rear.
* Dual power systems (Hydrogen Engine and Battery) ensure that the truck can run even without connection to a home base for extended periods.
* A beacon and ore detector.
* A conveyor sorter and ejector (disabled by default) to easily and automatically dump stone when loading mixed ore.
* 2 Passenger Seats so you can bring some comrades with you to work.
* An air vent to supply the cockpit with oxygen when in toxic or cold but otherwise oxygen-containing atmospheres.
* Height-calibrated rear connector design (See screenshot) and backup camera for easy loading and unloading.
* Simple conversion from other models.
* Repair projector to easily fix any damage.

No scripts, DLC, or subgrids are used, and the truck clocks in at a slim 1530 PCU, allowing it to be used on official and restrictive multiplayer servers. Max grid mass is approximately 500 tons on mostly level ground with suspension/power tweaks, or 150 tons (well over a full load of ore) on steep hills.

To upgrade the truck from the Light Survival Truck, remove the survival kit, large cargo container, medium cargo container, and connecting conveyor tubes below it, then load this blueprint into the truck's Repair Projector and add the 2 large cargo containers, connector, fenders, and connector ring as projected. To add the stone ejector, the camera will need to be replaced and re-configured in the cockpit.

To upgrade the truck from the Light Ore Detection Truck, remove the large grid ore detector, rotor assembly, medium cargo container, and connecting conveyor tubes below it, then load this blueprint into the truck's Repair Projector and add the 2 large cargo containers, connector, fenders, and connector ring as projected. To add the stone ejector, the camera will need to be replaced and re-configured in the cockpit.

In both upgrades, make sure to add Connector Switch Lock to the hotbar (by default, hotbar 1 slot 8).

WARNING: When hand-mining, use of the Ejector system to clear stone from the cargo can and will cause ore you have mined to vanish if the ejected stone creates items in excess of the Floating Object Limit configured for your world!
