Dear Martians!

Being a rover mechanic on Mars sounds awesome, and as it is exciting, it is also a very demanding job that requires you to deal with expensive and fragile scientific instruments on a daily basis. 

Rovers that you are going to maintain in RMS are intricate machines that consist of crazy amounts of parts. But how many is crazy you wonder? Take a look at a list that includes all of the parts you will be able to tinker with, in our game.

Each task you take requires you to analyze, detach and attach different parts of a rover. Most of it can be done directly on the rover you repair, but there are also sets that need to be dismantled separately on a special workbench.

To obtain replacement parts you will have to use the 3D printer, which will provide you with all the components you need to repair a Mars rover.
