The personal roboport MK2 allows construction bots to work from the player's inventory. The personal roboport MK2 supports significantly more robots than the personal roboport (25, versus 10 for the MK1), a larger construction area (40×40 rather than 30×30), and extra charging ports (4 instead of 2). Inserting multiple of either roboport into the player's modular armor or the spidertron increases the number of supported robots, size of construction area and number of charging ports on a linear scale.

It can be toggled on or off via a button in the shortcut bar or with ALT + R. The roboport's internal energy buffer must be 20% full to allow construction robots to deploy. If the personal roboport is disabled via the shortcut bar while any of the player's robots already out of the inventory and performing a task, they will continue to finish their tasks before returning to the player.

If a personal robot runs out of energy it will reduce its speed and continue to try and catch up with the player.

The formula for calculating the total construction area is:
`sqrt((num_mk2roboports x mk2_construction_area) + (num_mk1roboports x mk1_construction_area))`.
For example, 3 MK2 roboports: `sqrt(3 x 1600)` = 69.282, ie. 69x69; 2 MK2 roboports & 2 MK1 roboports: `sqrt(2 x 1600 + 2 x 900)` = `sqrt(5000)` = 70.711, ie 70x70.

## History

• 0.17.10:
• "Toggle personal roboport" function is now accessible via keyboard shortcut.
• 0.17.0:
• Added shortcut bar that allows toggling personal roboport on and off.
• Changed personal roboports so they won't send construction robots if you're driving in a vehicle that they can't keep up with or if in a train in automatic mode.
