This article is about the Vehicle Upgrade Console in Subnautica. Click here for information on this subject in Below Zero.

The Vehicle Upgrade Console is a Seabase module that allows the player to upgrade and customize the Seamoth and Prawn Suit. It is constructed with the Habitat Builder and can only be constructed inside a Moonpool. In order for the player to build it, its blueprint must be retrieved from a Data Box.


The Vehicle Upgrade Console displays the name and current Energy level of any docked vehicle. By interacting with the control panel, the player can customize the docked vehicle by renaming it or modifying its color scheme: the color picker works by having the central panel used to pick the hue and the slider to the right adjusting color saturation, with greyscale accessible at minimal saturation and other colors as it is increased.

The Vehicle Upgrade Console includes a fabricator for crafting Upgrade Modules for the Seamoth and Prawn Suit. It can also craft ammunition for the Torpedo System and Prawn Suit Torpedo Arm.

  • The previous names for the Vehicle Upgrade Console were the Seamoth Modification Station and the Vehicle Modification Station. The former could only be used to upgrade the Seamoth: it was present in builds where the Prawn Suit did not exist yet, and upgrading the Cyclops in these builds required building a Fabricator inside it to craft its upgrades.
  • The Seamoth Depth Module MK1 can be found in the Aurora, in the Seamoth bay.
  • A storage module can be found in the P.R.A.W.N. bay in the Aurora.
