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

One Fabricator can be found in Lifepod 5. Lifepod 5 is the player's starting location, so the use of this Fabricator is vital towards the player's progress and survival. Additional Fabricators can be constructed with the Habitat Builder and placed inside a Cyclops or a Seabase module.

Within the Vehicle Modification Station, Scanner Room and Cyclops are unique fabricators, which only fabricate Seamoth/Prawn Suit upgrades, Scanner Room upgrades and Cyclops upgrades, respectively.

Usage Edit

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.

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. Bulkier items, such as the Waterproof Locker, also remain in the Fabricator until the player picks them up manually. 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 finishes crafting the item. The player can hold Shift when they select an item to craft to leave the interface open during crafting.

The Fabricator requires Energy to operate, and will consume 10 Energy per item crafted from whatever it is built inside. If there is not enough Energy, the Fabricator cannot be used. The Fabricator does not require energy to operate in Creative Mode.
