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/PS4 - Triangle on PS4). 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]

  • Packaging an item will revert it to its default, freshly crafted state. Some examples are a partially used Solid-Fuel Thruster regaining all four uses, a Large Shredder losing any partial stack of scrap, or a Medium Battery losing any power charge. This can also be useful to fix any modules that may occasionally break, or those that change in an update but require being refreshed, such as EXO Request Platform when a new LTE occurs.
