The Space Suits themselves can be crafted in a crafting table, however components must be added to the suit in the Suit Workstation.
The Modular spacesuit can be used like any other set of armor, just put it on. However without any components installed the only protection the spacesuit provides is protection against the vacuum of space.
The space suit will prevent damage in space only if all the pieces are worn and there is some oxygen in the chestplate's tank.
Unlike the hydrogen fuel required for the jetpack, the chestplate has its own internal oxygen storage tank which provides 30 minutes of oxygen by default (see "spaceSuitO2Buffer" in config file).
The internal tank can be filled with oxygen by stepping on a powered Gas Charge Pad containing Oxygen gas. Pressure tanks mounted in the suit can be charged in a similar manner.
When wearing a Chestplate an O2 bar will appear above the food bar indicating the amount of Oxygen stored in the suit. IF a jetpack is mounted in the chestplate, a red H2 fuel bar will also appear.
When wearing the modular helmet, a display indicating what components are installed on what parts of the suit in the top left corner of the screen.
|Hover Upgrade||If a jetpack is installed in the chestplate then the Hover Upgrade allows the jetpack to be switched to hover mode. Installing more than one has no effect.|
|Flight Speed Control Upgrade||If a jetpack is installed in the chestplate then the Flight Speed Control Upgrade increases the speed at which the player flies by 0.4 m/s for each item installed.|
|Atmosphere Analyzer||If equipped in the spacesuit, a display in the lower left hand corner of the screen displaying current atmosphere and oxygen levels will be shown.
The same information can be displayed if the item is right clicked in the world
|Anti-Fog Visor||If equipped in the spacesuit, it will allow you to easily see through the fog on high pressure planets.|
|Beacon Finder||If equipped in the spacesuit, it will display arrows at the top of the screen pointing to active beacons on the same planet.|
|Jetpack||Allows the player to fly in one of two modes(toggled by shift+toggle jetpack key) while consuming Hydrogen Gas during flight:
Normal mode: Accelerates the player upward when the jump key is held
Hover mode: Allows the player to fly in a method similar to creative mode flight, however a Hover Upgrade must be installed in the helmet.
|Pressure Tank||Adds gas/liquid storage capacity for the suit. See the Pressure Tank page for more details.|
|Bionic Legs||Increases the player's running speed by 0.5 m/s per upgrade|
