The Modification Station is an Appliance that can be placed inside the Cyclops or inside a Seabase module. The Modification Station can upgrade toolsequipment and vehicle modules. 

The Modification Station can be constructed with the Habitat Builder after finding and scanning three of its fragments

Data Bank Entry


Where the standard fabricator atomically rearranges raw materials to form complex devices, the mod station is able to combine complex devices to enhance their function. Most industrial vessels are fitted with a complement of equipment modification stations, which enable engineers to adapt their tools on the fly.

To conserve hard drive space the modification station is excluded by default from most personal emergency blueprint libraries; however extreme environments such as ocean and desert class planets may necessitate the adaptation of basic survival tools for unanticipated applications. For this reason, access to a mod station is always recommended.



  • The Modification Station was originally called the Workbench.
  • In creative mode, you can still craft the lithium-ion battery.
  • The laser cutter used to be crafted in the Modification Station with a Repair Tool and a diamond.
