The Inventory is where the player stores materials, objects and items that they have gathered. The inventory window has a limited number of slots, 80 in total, and once full, nothing more can be picked up. The Inventory screen is hotkeyed to "I" by default.

The Inventory screen is also where the player equips armor and costumes. The armor slots outlined in light grey are the actual armor slots, while the eye icon denotes cosmetic slots. The player can equip any equippable armor in either the actual or cosmetic slots. The cosmetic slot item will always overtake the look of the actual armor slot, but none of the actual stats or bonuses apply. If one leaves the cosmetic slot empty, the appearance of the actual armor slot will be shown on the character.

The player can equip up to four Techs, but only one, highlighted in blue, will be active at all times. Techs can be equipped using the ship's Tech Station.

There are also two pet slots which are not implemented yet.

The stats listing to the right of the armor window shows the player's attack multiplier, maximum health, maximum energy, and defense.

There are three Inventory tabs with a total of 120 inventory slots. Picked up items and objects will automatically sort into their appropriate tab, but players can place things in any of the tabs without restriction.



Selecting the Backpack icon will open 40 inventory slots to store misc. objects, items, armor, weapons, and ore.

Mining Bag

Material Tab

The material tab holds all blocks and building materials. Materials will automatically be sorted into this bag. Like the backpack, it also has 40 inventory slots.[1]

Furniture Bag

Furniture Tab

The furniture tab holds any picked up furniture. This includes lights, switches, doors, chairs, tables, beds and other decorative objects. Furniture will automatically be sorted into this bag. Like the other tabs, it also has 40 inventory slots.[2]

New Item Icon
When new items and objects are picked up their respective inventory tabs are marked with a plus symbol. The items themselves will be indicated by a scanning animation over their icon in the inventory window.

Send to Trash

Trash Inventory Icon
There is also a slot labeled Send to Trash. All items, materials and objects put into this slot will be completely deleted after a grace period of one second. Be mindful of what you put in here, as you will never regain it.

Any item that is considered "critical" cannot be deleted in the Send to Trash slot. This includes the Matter Manipulator and it's upgraded functions (Paint Mode and Wire Mode).


Inventory Sort At the very bottom of the inventory window there's a button to sort all objects in all tabs within the window. After pressing this items will auto-stack together, sort to fill in all gaps in slots and sort to their appropriate tabs if there's room available.
