The Pattern Storage is used to import or export information from Crystal Memory. It does not require EU to operate.
The Pattern Storage is used together with a Replicator. It must be placed beside the Replicator to work. The Pattern Storage is used to store information and allow the player to cycle through patterns in a Replicator. Placing the Pattern Storage beside a Scanner will store the patterns of any scanned blocks directly in the Pattern Storage.
Importing and Exporting Data
There are 4 arrows in the Pattern Storage interface: The right and left arrows will cycle between patterns. The down arrow copies data from a Memory Crystal to the storage. The up button will copy data from its storage to the Memory Crystal.
