The Fabricator is an appliance which can be used to craft food & water, equipment, tools and deployables from raw, basic or advanced materials.

Usage

When activated with LMB, it will display an interface from which the player can choose an item to craft. If the player has the required materials to craft an item, the item will be in color and highlighted in blue; otherwise, the item will be greyed out and highlighted in grey. The player can cancel out of the interface with RMB. The player can pin a recipe with RMB.

When the Fabricator finishes crafting an item, it will usually place it in the player's inventory. However, if the player moves away from the Fabricator during the crafting process, the newly crafted item will remain in the Fabricator, and the player must come back and manually pick it up. In this case, the player will receive a notification that their item is ready. The Fabricator cannot be used to craft items while there are still items in it that have not been picked up.

By default, the Fabricator interface disappears while it is crafting an item and reappears when it is finished. The player can hold the key for sprinting (by default: Shift ) when they select an item to craft to leave the interface open during crafting.

The Fabricator requires Energy to work, and will consume 5 Energy per item crafted from a Seabase. If there is not enough Energy, the Fabricator cannot be used. The Fabricator does not require energy to operate in Creative Mode.

Recipe

The blueprint for this item is unlocked by unlocking the Habitat Builder. It is also crafted there.

Databank Entry

Fabricator

Fabrication technology is the power to rearrange matter at the atomic level. It was the catalyst behind the great expansion, and remains the backbone of the modern world.

Fabricators come in all shapes and sizes, but the most common are small enough to be wall-mounted, and are used for everything from constructing everyday implements to cooking dinner. It is common today for households to keep a store of generic base materials on hand for any eventuality.
