Due to arcane legal restrictions, all space-going ships are required to have a supply of life preservers. Some, especially on asteroid mining trawlers, have been redesigned in order to make them self-propelling in space, or to give them a limited air supply, but most ships simply pack the things into a storage locker and forget about them. They do, however, serve their traditional purpose on more luxurious spaceships equipped with swimming pools.
- When inserted into the Recycler, generates 1 Nanite.
- When dropped into the swimming pool (or any other sufficiently large pool of water), it will float due to its density setting being 0.50 - ie; less than that of water. This can be changed or applied to other objects via the Physics>Model>Attributes menu in ShockEd.
