|Lifepod systems repaired||
"Lifepod secondary systems online. Running full environment diagnostic and outputting results to databank."
|Lifepod Radio has not been repaired||
"Be advised: the radio onboard your lifepod malfunctioned during planetfall. Prioritize repair to increase rescue probability."
|Alien Containment||"Aquariums provide an ideal opportunity to study alien fauna up close.|
Select carefully which lifeforms you bring onboard - they may also be studying you."
|Bench||"Warning: endorphin levels low. Consider taking a seat and meditating.|
It may help to remember that problems exist only where you choose to see them."
|Bioreactor||"A reliable power source is a critical step toward self-sufficiency.|
Consider keeping a photo-journal of your achievements to motivate you in times of despair."
|Exterior Growbed||"Farming alien plants is a proven survival strategy.|
Craig McGill survived 47 months on a healthy, raw salad of live tree-roaches and stankroot."
|Moonpool||"After weeks without human contact, it is normal to experience psychological discomfort. Research indicates symptoms may be partly alleviated by adopting a pet, or anthropomorphizing an inanimate object."|
|Multipurpose Room||"It may be prudent to separate work and leisure spaces to maximize productivity.|
Treat this space as your home, but never forget that it is not."
|Nuclear Reactor||"Exercise caution when handling radioactive materials.|
Exposure risks corrupting your PDA's recording of the circumstances of your death."
|Observatory||"Unless constructed with a specific research task in mind, observatories and other glass modules are imprudent for survival purposes."|
|Window||"Windows improve the aesthetics of your habitat, at the expense of structural integrity."|
|Habitat Builder||"The builder tool is designed to construct habitats capable of withstanding extreme environmental conditions."|
|Survival Knife||"Weapons were removed from lifepod fabricators following the massacre on Obraxis Prime.|
The survival knife is the only exception."
|Scanner||"The scanner can be used to synthesize blueprints from salvaged technology, and to record alien biological data."|
|Stasis Rifle||"Motivational note. Craig McGill crash-landed in the acid swamps of Boreal 9, fought off arachnid kidney-poachers, and hijacked a tame starwhal.|
If he can do all that, you can survive one more day."
|Bleach||"Bleach is an essential chemical used for cleaning wounds and purifying water."|
|Lubricant||"Lubricant is essential in construction of vehicles and power plants."|
|Copper Ore||"Copper is an essential component of all powered equipment. Your probability of survival has just increased to: unlikely, but plausible."|
|Diamond||"Remember that materials you gather are the property of the Alterra corporation.|
You will be liable to reimburse the full market price. Your current bill stands at 3 million credits."
|Silver||"Silver-based computer chips are an essential component of the habitat builder."|
|Fins||"The fabricator draws from available data to provide environment-appropriate equipment, using locally available materials.|
For your safety this setting cannot be overridden."
|Radiation Suit||"The status of the Aurora's crew, and the ship's long-range comm relay, is indeterminate.|
Exploring the crash site may provide further information."
|Radiation Suit||"For your convenience the radiation suit has been added to your blueprint database."|
|Cyclops||"Be advised: the Cyclops is designed to be operated by a three-person crew.|
Only experienced helms-people should attempt to pilot this vehicle solo."
|Prawn Suit||"It is normal when first piloting a Prawn suit to feel a sense of limitless power.|
Prawn operators receive weeks of training to counteract this phenomenon. You will have to make do with self-discipline."
|Seaglide||"The seaglide will increase your effective exploration range.|
For your safety please pack supplies for long journeys, and stay within 5km of the nearest lifepod or habitat."
|Seamoth||"The seamoth is a fast, safe mode of transport, but remember that swimming is good for your glutes and endorphin levels."|
|Neptune Escape Rocket||"All systems are go for lift off."|
Fish & Food
|Bladderfish||"Alien lifeforms may have unexpected applications. Utilizing alien resources is a proven survival strategy."|
|Cooked Garryfish||"It is common for those accustomed to synthetic foods to be repulsed by eating an animal carcass.|
Remember that humans survived this way for millennia. You can too."
|Cooked Hoverfish||"Consider disguising the flavor of unsavory meats with salt, or locally sourced herbs and spices."|
|Cooked Peeper||"The fabricator cooks small organisms, while disposing of the skeletal structure, bodily fluids and internal organs, thus rendering them safe for human consumption."|
|Disinfected Water||"Preparing the day's water ration, ahead of time, will help ensure against dehydration, and eventual death."|
|Blood Kelp Zone||"This ecological biome matches 7 of the 9 preconditions for stimulating terror in humans."|
|Bulb Zone||"Detecting volcanic activity, and several unusual electromagnetic signatures in the region.|
Exercise caution when diving deeper."
|Crashed ship||"Lifeform readings in this region are sparse.|
The Aurora's radioactive fallout will have devastating effects on the alien ecosystem if not contained within the next 24 hours."
"Warning: Entering ecological dead zone. Adding report to databank."
|Deep Grand Reef||"Scans show extensive cave networks below the surface in this area, accompanied by unusual energy signatures."|
|Dunes||"Detecting multiple leviathan class lifeforms in the region. Are you certain whatever you're doing is worth it?"|
|Floating Island||"Picking up multiple faint energy signatures on the island's surface."|
|Grassy Plateaus||"Short range scans suggest this biome supports extensive biodiversity, and connects to a number of small cave networks."|
|Jellyshroom Cave Entrance||"Local scans show a nearby cave entrance, depth 90m, leading to an unknown environmental biome."|
|Jellyshroom Cave||"The conditions in this cave support a microcosm of unique, possibly predatory lifeforms.|
Detecting an artificial structure somewhere in the region."
|Jellyshroom Cave 2||"Congratulations, survivor: you have exceeded your weekly exercise quotient by 500%.|
Data indicates that swimming was your favorite activity.
Be sure to vary your routine for uniform muscle development."
|Kelp Forest||"Life on this planet grows in distinct and diverse ecological biomes. Further study recommended."|
|Kelp Forest Caves||"Be advised: a common complication for cave divers is loss of orientation, followed by eventual asphyxiation."|
|Lost River||"Terrain scans indicate this biome contains unusually high concentrations of organic and fossilized remains."|
|Lost River||"Local scans show a nearby opening, leading to a biome with extensive fossilized remains."|
|Mountains||"Detecting massive energy signature in the region. Cannot identify."|
|Mountain Range Caves||"Local scans indicate an abundance of mineral deposits in this area."|
|Mushroom Forest||"The biomass in this area is dominated by plantlife. Picking up faint Alterra vehicle signatures."|
|Mushroom Forest Caves||"You are currently inside a long-calcified root system.|
Evidence suggests it was eaten away by other lifeforms over many centuries to form these natural caves."
|Sea Treader's Path||"Damage to plantlife on the seafloor suggests this may be the migration path of a huge, bottom-dwelling lifeform."|
|Sparse Reef||"Biodiversity in this region is unusually low. Cause unknown."|
|Underwater Islands||"Erosion patterns on the landmasses suspended here suggest they once floated on the surface."|
|"Be advised: the radio onboard your lifepod malfunctioned during planetfall. Prioritize repair to increase rescue probability."|

|Sunbeam Pre-Arrival Dialogues||Recieved on Day||Dialogue|
|1st Message||Day 9||This is Avery Quinn of trading ship Sunbeam. Aurora, do you read? Over.
Still nothing. These Alterra ships. They run out of engine grease, they send an SOS; you offer to help, they don't pick up.
Aurora, I'm out on the far side of the system, it's going to take more than a week to reach your position, do you still need out assistance? Over.
I'll try them again tomorrow. See what the long-range scanner picks up in the meantime. Damn chater's going to have us wasting our profit margin running errands for Alterra.
|2nd Message||Day 13||Aurora, this is Sunbeam again. We just picked up a massive debris field at your location. I didn't know how bad... How many of you... I didn't know.'We are now en route to your location. We're going to bring you home. Sunbeam out.
What else can I say? We're a six-seater and we aren't even slightly equipped to handle this? Our pilot last attempted a planet landing in the academy simulator?
It's a bad situation, but so are all the alternatives.
|3rd Message||Day 19||Sunbeam, broadcasting to all survivors of the Aurora. We've covered more than half of the distance, so hold on in there.'We're scanning the planet for dry land as we speak. You couldn't have picked a less convenient parking spot, but we'll be in touch as soon as we have a landing site for you. Sunbeam out.|
|4th Message||Day 21||Aurora, it's Sunbeam. We've made orbit, and scans have found a landing site on the planet that's only rated hazardous. It's our best shot. We've sent you the coordinates. We'll be there in two days' time. Cross your fingers the weather holds, and don't leave us waiting. Sunbeam out.|
Neptune - Preflight Check
|"NEPTUNE: Life support systems online."|
|"NEPTUNE: Pressurizing hydraulics."|
|"NEPTUNE: Auxiliary power unit online."|
|"NEPTUNE: Time Capsule ready."|
|"NEPTUNE: Communications systems array active."|

Neptune - Launch Sequence
- Due to the fact the AI at the beginning used to say "In the late 22nd century...", Subnautica is believed to take place between 2160-2199. This message can be played below.
- There are different voices speaking in certain dialogue, the voices change depending on where the player is. ex: The Standard female voice is there most of the game, but in a Seabase, Seamoth, Prawn Suit, and Cyclops the voices change. This may be due to the fact the player fabricates computer chips for all of these things, so it is possible computer chips contain AI's.
- However, this may not be true, due to the fact that many other items are used with computer chips but they do not have their own AI.
- Obraxis Prime is a reference to one of the Subnautica developers, Scott "Obraxis" MacDonald.
- "You've been down too long in the midnight sea.", was a reference to the song Holy Diver by the US heavy metal band DIO. This text was removed from the game.
