Important Items

Identification Card

Id regular.png The Identification (ID) Card. Every Nanotrasen (or Syndicate) crewmember is always issued with a Identification Card, one of the important items in the game.

This little thin, yet important ID Card can allow you to have access around the station. Meaning this can allow you go from airlock A, to airlock B as long as you have the ID Card access to A, B and so on. This also allows you to access other devices such as consoles, borgs and many more. Your ID contains a variety of personal information, such as the name, occupation or job, blood type as well as Medical and Security information too. IDs can be kept inside of a PDA. Keep in mind that if someone wears obscures their face in any way, they'll be identified as the person who's wear the ID, and not the actual person who's behind their mask. Piority takes place when using IDs too, holding a different ID on your hand while having your ID in your ID slot will access the ID that is on your hand. IDs also have a special ID slot in between the armor slot and the belt slot, PDAs can also hold on to that slot, though they have different slots.

A person with the rights to access an Identification Computer can edit your ID to add or remove those rights. It should only be modified by the Captain or Head of Personnel, but special circumstances may change this.

NOTE: Every department head has access to a department management console, which is located in their office. This gives them the ability to make small access changes or to demote them, but does not allow them to change their department.

Personal Device Assistant (PDA)

((Insert description here))


These little devices are issued to every crew member upon arrival on the station. Every job, no matter how insignificant, gets some form of headset. In order to talk to the station with it simply type <say "; (your text here)">. To talk in different languages however, type <say ";.# (your text here)"> with the # being your language key. And finally, to do /me actions over your headset (Like yawning or sneezing), type <say ";! (your verbal action here)">

Different branches of the station get a unique headset with it's own private channel. In order to use this channel type in <say ":h (your text here)">. And your message will be broadcast to others with the same type of headset. *Note* This does not work on the basic model. You can tell the basic model by its black coloring and lack of label.

All headsets are equipped with a standard encryption key used for the common channel. Screwdrivers can be used to remove the encryption keys and use them in a different headset. All department headsets come with two keys.

Here is a list of channels and how to access them. Examining your headset also shows you all possible channels.

  • :c Command
  • :s Security
  • :e Engineering
  • :u Cargo
  • :m Medical
  • :n Science/Research
  • :z Service

Using :h will connect you with your default department's channel.

Other channels:

  • :b Binary (For AI and cyborgs)
  • :h AI Holopad (For AI)
  • :t Syndicate Channel
  • :$ Centcom Channel

A Radio headset that can be found throughout the galaxy. This has 2 slots for encryption keys, which are used for communicating other departments. These are prone to EMPs, and they shut off when they're in the radius of them. It also has two functions, Microphone and Speaker. Microphone allows talking over your headset without actually talking to the headset in a 3x3 radius. Speaker allows the wearer of the headset hear channels. In addition, you can also set a frequency to talk to other channels.
Bowman Headset

Having a jumpsuit is extremely important. Without a jumpsuit you will not have an ID slot, a belt slot, or any pocket slots. The jumpsuit is also useful in identifying your department at a glance, and so can be used as part of a disguise.

In addition, jumpsuits now have a full suite of sensors that can be toggled and adjusted by right-clicking on it. They can give out data to the bridge including your location, your health, and your mortality. Used by the Chief Medical Officer and other Heads of Staff to locate you in case you go missing.

Depending on how high you set yours, more information will be available to Crew Monitoring Consoles.

  1. Off: Tells them nothing. You don't even show up on the monitor.
  2. Binary Life Signs: Tells them if you are alive or deceased. The name that shows up on the monitor is the same one on the ID that is being worn. If no ID is worn, you will show up as 'Unknown'.
  3. Vital Tracker: Tells them what your vital statistics are. Separates damage by Suffocation, Toxin, Burn, and Brute.
  4. Tracking Beacon: The maximum level. Tells them what area of the station you're currently in, and your co-ordinate location.

The Magistrate, Captain, Head of Security and IAA also have special permissions on the Newscaster system, allowing them to issue Wanted posters and censor news channels.


Item Description
Crates are a container for items. Especially large items, such as corpses, lockers, and certain robots or equipment cannot fit inside. Just because an item comes packed in a crate when the Quartermaster receives it doesn't mean it will go back inside once the crate is opened, either!

Crates are worth 5 supply points to a Quartermaster, which can be used to get more supplies for the station's whole benefit.

Just like the rest of the station, even crates have variable levels of access. The Quartermaster can't unlock anything that is locked by default, for various reasons. The primary one being it would be pointless to make since all crates go through the Quartermasters anyway. Security crates can be opened by security personnel and those with higher access, and et cetera. An emag can get into locked crates, however.

Also known as Wardrobes or Lockers, Closets are among the most common and arguably the most useful of containers on the station. Nearly anything can fit inside, barring other closets, crates, and certain especially large objects like racks and Mulebots. Coffins in the Chapel also count as lockers.

Besides being welded shut, some closets can be locked with the appropriate ID. Several levels of access exist, such as security, captain, and private-level access. These can be opened with the proper level identification card, emag item, or a few good laser blasts.

If you yourself are inside a locker you can see your surroundings. Normally you can move in any direction to exit the locker, but if the locker is locked or welded you will be unable to exit, and you cannot unweld or unlock your cell from inside. At that point if you try to move around you will instead throw yourself against the sides of the locker, making noise that can be heard by others.
