Lets you craft a Personal Teleporter Equipment that goes into your Power Armor and allows you to Teleport around your base where you have put Teleporter Beacons. Take a look at the screen shots.

A lot of Thanks to iUltimateLP and his mod SimpleTeleporters for inspiration and for the use of His Code and graphics.
Screen shots
Info:
Long Description:
If you are tired of running the full length of your base every time you need to check on something or fix a small design error, this is the mod for you. Now on the click of a button you can travel hundreds of miles in a second.
All you have to do is research personal Teleporter, build yourself one (parts not included), then place a beacon where you want to teleport to and then you can visit your favorite location as often as you like.

Yes! Adding this to the list immediately. I'll be streaming with it very shortly. :D

Any known issues with multiplayer? I play solo, but for those out there that don't I figured I'd ask.

Would it be possible to add a maximum range? I dont like how easy it would make exploring really far. Great idea though :P

The entire reason I made this mod was to not have a maximum range, also that is why it cost so much to make.

Everything was working great, placing new beacons, teleporting around, awesome stuff. Then I saved, quit, came back, and while I can place more beacons, they won't add to the list, so they're effectively useless. :(

Update. I had the teleport box open when I saved and came back. The box was still open with prior beacons listed. After closing the box by hitting the main teleport button, I lost my original beacon but can place again. Essentially, on load, all prior beacons were forgotten.

I will look into this now.

Wow. Really cool mod for end game. Because even using several exoskeletons and using roads the movement even inside the base is still too slow. This mod is a expensive cost, but completely solve this problem. Thank you. :D

For balancing, I'd love to see the beacons act as massive one-way accumulators that reset to 0 on use. Soak up 1G of power, then dump it all when someone teleports in. Might be doable with a hidden entity or something.

Very cool mod.
I noticed that the transporter Beacon charges itself, but then never discharges. Is it normal ? What is the logic ? What is this accumultated energy used for ?

Yeah that was an oversight by me, the next update in the next week or so will fix that. I am thinking that it will use about 1/4 of the power it can hold.

Yes, good idea ! the departure should consume power on your intern armor teleporter, and the arrival should consume power on the destination teleporter. All this cannot be free :D

It does consume power from the internal armor teleporter.
