Platforms are basic structures that hold modules, storage, and items. Most modules must be placed on a platform and connected to power to function. Connect platforms with their cable plugs to create power networks. If an Oxygenator is attached to any platform, it provides oxygen to the player, and tethers may be attached.

Depending on their size and layout, each platform has a different number of attachment slots for holding other objects.

Small Platforms are not crafted, but it will automatically appear when certain items are placed on the ground, such as the Small Printer, Small Solar Panel or Small Wind Turbine.

Small Platforms have 2 power connectors, allowing them to be powered and provide oxygen.
