The construction pod carries metals, money and ship plans. These are all the
things that are needed to build a new ship. Because all the cargo types that the
construction pod carries may also be carried by a star ship you can transfer
any of it to your ship directly from the pod. The pod will transfer as much as
possible, until all of the selected item has been transferred or the ship has
no more cargo room.
If a pod attempts to dock with a ship, but the dock fails the pod will
transfer its cargo to the ship anyway if the transfer control switch is on.
The plans will only be transferred to the ship the pod is docked with if the
ship`s data bank is empty.
