Stormworks Build and Rescue: How to make an Anchor

In this guide I will show you how to make an anchor.

 

Overview

In this guide I will show you how to make an anchor to hold you still in even the windiest days.

There are 4 winch sizes:
Small
Medium
Large
Huge

Use at least medium, because small does not have all the inputs you need.

 

Placing your winch

I will be using a large winch for this example. Each winch has a certain length that it can reach.

You can place your anchor anywhere, but I recommend about the middle of your ship at the bottom.

Making the anchor

Make your anchor. You need an Electric Cable Anchor and a Mag All.

Now open the selection grid. And select your whole anchor.

Now click cut and then paste it in the exact same spot. The anchor is now a separate object. When you bring your cursor over your ship, the anchor will turn gray.

Now open logic and go to ropes. Connect a rope between the Electric Cable Anchor and the winch.

Controls

For this you will need 2 Push Buttons, and 1 Toggle button.
Name 1 Push Button up, and the other one down. Name the Toggle Button magnet.

Here is my layout:
D : Down
M : Magnet
U : Up

Now let’s move on to the electricity.

Electricity

Connect electricity from the Electric Cable Anchor to the Magnet.

Once the winch has power connected to it, the anchor will get power through the rope you attached earlier.

Now let’s do the logic.

Logic

Instructions:
Connect the On/Off Output from the Electric Cable Anchor to the Magnet Toggle on the magnet
Connect the On/Off Output from the winch to the On/Off Input on the Electric Cable Anchor
Connect the On/Off Output from the toggle button to the On/Off Input on the Winch
Connect the Up button to the Up input on the winch
Connect the Down button to the Down input on the winch

The End

Now you have a working anchor that will hold you still even in the windiest times.
