The Packager is a single-use widget that allows you to repackage unpacked modules by placing the packager on them. This allows players to easily move their base or store modules that are no longer needed.

Uses[edit | edit source]

To use the Packager, the player must place it on any part of the object they wish to package that is not an attachment slot. When the light on top turns green, press and hold the Use key (default F on PC/Xbox One - Y Button on Xbox). The packager will then pick up the item and leave the item packaged inside of a crate. This will consume the Packager and you will have to make another to package more items. The light on top of the packager will turn red for any item that the packager cannot be used on, such as the starting Shelter, and it will turn black when placed in an attachment slot, showing that it is inactive.

The packager is great for packing up Research Items to bring back from another planet or easily moving a base to a new location.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Packaged items will revert to their default state when unpackaged. For example, packaging a Large Shredder with a partial stack of Scrap will be unpackaged without any scrap, resulting in lost scrap.
