The Launch Pad is a 5x5 structure that uses Rocket Fuel to launch the Space Shuttle. This feature requires Level 10. To unlock it, you need to start Space Invaders. The Launch Pad can be upgraded 3 times. (See the charts below for Upgrades)
Materials must be collected in the specific order the Launch Pad menu requires. Only one type of material can be requested until you have the needed amount. Besides building materials, you must collect 100 cans of Rocket Fuel to complete the starting level. It's unknown if this was meant to be a permanent requirement, or if it's more flexible. It has been possible to start with less.
Collecting from Space Shuttle Buildings provides the Rocket Fuel for the Launch Pad. Later missions can require either Star Fuel or Sun Fuel. These are obtained from missions or from buildings awarded for route Mastery. The Space Age Cottage can be purchased and gives a small chance of dropping either one.
Selling this building moves it into your inventory.
