Guide to Advanced Construction

This guide not only covers the construction and deconstruction of most machines, but also which effect upgrading those machines has on them.

While knowledge on the exact effects of upgrading machines isn't crucial to any role, it can be fairly beneficial to Scientists.

However knowledge on the construction of machines is necessary to fulfill the role of an Engineer, in the case that on station equipment was damaged/ destroyed.


Machine Construction

  • Machine Frame.png Build a machine frame by using 5 metal sheets in your active hand.
  • Wired Frame.png Add 5 pieces of cable.
  • Circuit Frame.png Add a circuit board.
  • Rped.gif Add all components required. You can tell which components are missing by examining the machine frame.
  • Screwdriver tool.png Apply a screwdriver on the machine frame.

All machines (except most vending machines) require a specific circuit board in order to be constructed. These can either be found in Technical Storage, or printed by using a Circuit Imprinter.

In addition to a circuit board, machines require components, which can be created through usage of an Autolathe, a Protolathe and an Ore Redemption Machine.


Machine Deconstruction

  • Screwdriver tool.png Unscrew the machine's panel.
  • Crowbar.png Apply a crowbar to remove all the components along with the circuit board.
  • Wirecutters.png Apply wirecutters to cut the wires.
  • Wrench.png Apply a wrench to disassemble the machine frame.


Upgrading Machines

Upgrading is the process of improving a machine by replacing it's components with their better counterparts, e.g. a matter bin being replaced with an advanced matter bin.

If a machine is upgraded it improves (with a few exceptions) the machine's capabilities, along with enabling it in some cases to serve new functions.

For example, in the case of matterbins it generally increases the machine's storage space.

In addition to stock parts, like matter bins, the term component includes beakers, wires, materials and igniters, of which the latter three have no better counterparts.

Furthermore, the Bluespace Artillery and DNA Vault station goals are different from most machines, in that they require you to use top-tier components, i.e. Quadratic Capacitors.


On the exact process of upgrading see the Guide to Research and Development.
