That’s why you’re sent to that planet. You [have] to build this thing, you construct this giant space elevator and you funnel resources into it in a few stages. You can finish [Satisfactory] and get to the end and press the ‘I Win’ button.

The Space Elevator is a special building used to complete phases of Project Assembly by supplying it with Project Assembly Parts. Each delivery unlocks 2 higher Tiers of Milestones.

It is visible from all parts of the world, making it a useful landmark for navigation.

Building and relocation[edit | edit source]

The Space Elevator must be constructed to unlock Tier 3 and above. Only one Space Elevator can be built in a game; however, it can be dismantled and relocated without losing progress at any time.

Once an item has been loaded into the elevator, it cannot be retrieved.

In a multiplayer game, the Space Elevator is shared among all players.

Food court[edit | edit source]

According to Jace, Sofi, and Snutt, there is supposedly a food court at the top of the Space Elevator.[3][4]

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Although it has a terminal in its model, the player is able to interact with the Space Elevator from any angle.
  • If you are placing a Space Elevator on a circular platform, you can get centering guidelines by placing observation towers at two cardinal, non aligned compass points (N/E, N/W, S/E, S/W but not N/S or E/.W) on your platform, then stand on one of the towers, you will get alignment guidelines to place the center of the elevator in the center of the platform.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • After each delivery, the Space Elevator will ascend to the sky for a few minutes then descend back to the lower level.
  • Only the anchors of the Space Elevator are constructed by the Engineer, which explains its rather cheap price.
  • In a multiplayer game, if a player sends off the items by pulling the handle, other players will not be able to see the animated handle in the Space Elevator UI if they opened the UI at the same time.
  • The delivery mechanism of the Space Elevator doesn't have collision maps, so if the player managed to work their way up to the top, they won't be able to walk around on it.
  • Project Assembly itself cannot be seen in-game, but it appears briefly at the end of the E3 trailer.[5]

Current issue[edit | edit source]

In multiplayer, when multiple players pull down the 'send' lever at the same time, the game will count it as if there were multiple deliveries accomplished.
