Uses[edit | edit source]

  • Oxygenators are an important item to take when traveling to another planet, as it supplies oxygen to connected tethers for players who wish to explore or do some underground mining.
  • Oxygenators are also recommended for players who wish to build large bases, if parts of the base are not connected to the Shelter then an oxygenator placed on a platform could easily
  • Shuttles have a slot meant for an oxygenator, marked with a blue hologram of an oxygenator. This allows players to set up tether networks on other planets early on without needing to bring a platform for the oxygenator to sit on.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The electroluminescent cables bordering the edge of every platform and power cable light up pale blue to indicate that Oxygen and Power are currently being shared via Tether-style connections. It's possible to tell on a glance whether Oxygen will be received from a specific platform this way.
