Astronaut[edit | edit source]

Astronauts are the protagonists of the game, controlled by players.

Features[edit | edit source]

  • Every astronaut belongs to one of the factions in the game.
  • Each also has one of four classes, determining his performance in the field.
  • Astronauts can customize the look of their space suit, to make them easier to distinguish from one another. Customizable elements include primary, secondary, detail, and glow colors.
  • The Astronaut needs Nutrition, Hydration and Oxygen to be able to survive. This and more about the Astronaut's health can be found on that page.


Character Statistics[edit | edit source]

Character statistics are one of three sets of statistics defining an astronaut. They are increased by spending stat points gained during a level-up (5 per level).

Statistics[edit | edit source]

  • Agility: Increases movement speed by +1% per upgrade.
  • Fortitude: Increases your health by +5% per upgrade.
  • Strength: Increases your carry weight (encumbrance limit) by +5% per upgrade.
  • Stamina: Increases your sprint duration by +5% per upgrade.


Proficiensies[edit | edit source]

Proficiencies are one of three sets of characteristics defining astronauts, the other two being character statistics and skills. Proficiencies grow with consistent use of the item, representing the accumulated experience of your astronaut.

Skills[edit | edit source]

Skills determine your astronaut's actual abilities, divided into three branches on the Skill Web: Combat, Engineering, and Science.

  • Combat focuses, on what it says on the tin: Dealing damage.
  • Engineering provides the ability to construct buildings and vehicles.
  • Science covers furniture and crafting, particularly things essential to your survival.

Available skills[edit | edit source]
