Rockets are the means by which players travel from world to world. They are the first objects the player builds in the game.

All rockets are modular, so any combination of nose-cone, cockpit, and engine can be used to form a rocket. The modular rocket parts can also be put on properties. All rockets requires the use of a Launchpad to operate.

Rockets can be assembled and taken apart in the following worlds: Venture Explorer, Avant Gardens, Nimbus Station, Starbase 3001, MoonBase, DeepFreeze, Robot City, Portabello, Nexus Tower.

Assembly Solarblast Rocket

The Assembly Solarblast Rocket is an Assembly rocket designed by Doctor Overbuild.

The Solarblast's modules are available exclusively to Assembly members.

When Nexus Tower was completed, Torbert Oscillator began selling the modules instead.

Classic Rocket

The Classic Rocket is one of the three original rockets of LEGO Universe, making its first appearance in the "Answer the Call" trailer.

However, players who missed this opportunity can purchase the modules from Brutus Speck in the Avant Gardens Launch Area for 500 coins each, or seek the modules upon their return to the Venture Explorer.

The Classic Rocket is also available in numerous color schemes: the Classic Blue Rocket, the Classic Yellow Rocket, and the Classic Pink Rocket. Their modules can all be found aboard the Venture Explorer and sold by Brutus Speck for 500 coins each. Collecting all three modules of a rocket unlocks its respective achievement: Blue Rocketeer, Yellow Rocketeer, and Pink Rocketeer. Collecting all four Classic Rockets completes the Rainbow Rocketeer achievement.

Beta Information

In pre-alpha, rockets were only used to escape the Venture Explorer, and to travel between other worlds, special teleportation signs were used.[2] In addition, when players used their rockets to escape the Venture Explorer, they selected the modules they wanted to use in a window, then clicked a button to quick-build the rocket of their choice.[3] Even after the teleportation signs were swapped out for rocket launchpads, players continued to quickbuild their rockets before launching them.[4]

Trivia

  • The Classic Rocket, Pod Rocket, Steampunk Rocket, Nexus Force Rocket, Nimbus Rocket, Pirate Rocket, Ninja Dragon Rocket, an unreleased horse rocket, and Duck Rocket were physically assembled using real-life LEGO bricks and displayed with other LEGO Universe models in NetDevil Headquarters. The horse rocket was likely intended for the unreleased Kingdoms World.
