"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."

The Moonpool is a Seabase module. It is constructed with the Habitat Builder and its main function is the docking, undocking and editing of the Seamoth and the PRAWN Suit.

A power source is needed to be able to dock vehicles. The vehicles will also be charged from the base's Energy if in Freedom Mode, Survival Mode, or Hardcore Mode, at a cost of 200 Energy to completely fill a depleted Power Cell. The vehicle's Power Cells will be recharged at a much faster rate than if one were to use a Power Cell Charger.

It is recommended to have an appropriate amount of space between the bottom of the Moonpool and the sea floor. A Seamoth will require a fair amount of space to avoid crashing into the seafloor when it ejects, but a PRAWN Suit will need to easily reach the Moonpool with its thrusters.

The Moonpool also allows the player to access their base via two ladders on either end. This allows the player to freely exit and enter the Seabase outside their vehicle without needing to use the hatch.

The Vehicle Modification Station can only be constructed in the Moonpool. It allows the player to customize their docked vehicle, as well as fabricate upgrades for it.

To build the Moonpool it requires 2 Fragments, these can be found in Wrecks.


  • Hatches can be placed on the side-panels.
  • Windows can be placed on the side-panels.
  • Reinforcements can be placed on the side-panels.
  • Living Walls can be placed on the side-panels
  • Moonpools can be placed on the side-panels
  • Basic Compartments can be placed on the side-panels
  • The Moonpool can be expanded with other modules from its six side-panels.
  • The Vehicle Modification Station can only be constructed in the Moonpool on one of the side-panels.

Raw Materials Edit

A Moonpool requires 4 Titanium Ingots, 4 Lubricants and 1 Advanced Wiring Kit to construct. The following list details all the raw materials needed to build 1 Moonpool from scratch.

Refine 40 Titanium into 4 Titanium Ingots. Refine 12 Creepvine Seed Clusters into 4 Lubricant. Refine 2 Table Coral Samples, 1 Quartz and 1 Silver Ore into 1 Computer Chip. Refine 2 Gold Ore and 1 Computer Chip into 1 Advanced Wiring Kit. Then follow the recipe given above.

Data Bank Entry Edit

The moonpool is an essential module for long-term exploration. Its primary function is as a dock for vehicles such as the Seamoth submersible.

The large central chamber contains a pressurized pool which provides ready access to the surrounding waters, and comes as standard with equipment for raising and recharging a vehicle.

It is recommended the builder tool be used to outfit the moonpool with a vehicle modification station at your earliest convenience. This will enable the fabrication of upgrade modules, amongst other things.


  • Dimensions: 16m x 10m x 5m
  • Connection points: 6
  • Habitat hull strength liability at sea level: -5 (equivalent 4 rooms)
  • Capacity: 1 Seamoth / Prawn suit
  • High power consumption
