With the builder tool, you can construct seabases from raw materials. Advising against exploring a frozen water continent without a base. No bed, no storage, no place to put a fabricator module, no fun.

The Alterra handheld Habitat Builder is a tool crafted using the Fabricator.

Usage

The Habitat Builder allows the player to build a variety of stationary items. It is a crucial tool for the deployment of Seabases and the customization of the interiors of Seabases.

The Habitat Builder requires a Battery to operate, and objects cannot be constructed/deconstructed if the battery is depleted.

You can also use the Habitat Builder to deconstruct structures you have placed. All raw materials will be placed in your inventory. If your inventory is currently full, you cannot complete the deconstruction.

How to Use

  1. Open the Habitat Builder menu
  2. Select the desired tab: Base Pieces, Exterior Modules, Interior Pieces, Interior Modules or Miscellaneous
  3. Select an item
  4. Point the Habitat Builder at wherever the item should be placed until an outline appears
  5. Use Up and Down Mousewheel to rotate object. (if applicable)
  6. Place the outline
  7. Continue building the item by holding the correct key
  8. Done.
  9. Placed items can also be deconstructed by pointing the Habitat Builder at them and holding the proper button, this only applies if the text "Hold Q to Deconstruct" appears on the screen. This also gives back all resources used in the building process.

Databank Entry

Habitat Builder
HabitatBuilderEncy.png

The Alterra handheld habitat builder has been an essential tool of xenoscientists, colonists and emergency relief crews across 11 different trans-govs for more than 50 years.

- Habitat modules are hermetically sealed from the outside environment
- Build on land, underwater, or in a vacuum
- Habitats can be enhanced to become long-term homes, remote research stations, defensive outposts and more

Quick Start Guide:

1. Select the basic compartment from the builder menu and place it somewhere opportune
2. Add a hatch to access the compartment
3. Build a solar panel to power the habitat's oxygen generator
4. Construct useful interior modules like radios, rechargers and storage solutions

Primary habitat systems like oxygen generation and flood control, as well as modules like the fabricator draw power and will not function without it. Additional compartments reduce overall hull integrity, depending on the external pressure.
