Robots and Mechs


For the aspiring Researcher and even the Chief Science Officer, this guide will explain the equipment of Lazarus Laboratories, their functions, and guide you on how to create devices to better your Expedition.

Lazarus Lab Equipment

These are the devices you will need to create powerful exosuits, helpful bots, slaved cyborgs, or further the development of technology.

Item Description

Fabricator.png

Exosuit Fabricator - The Exosuit Fabricator is your main construction machine, you feed materials into it, and it builds all the things you could possibly need. It can make prosthetic limbs, cyborg parts and internal components, exosuit parts, exosuit equipment modules, and a variety of useful miscellaneous items like power cells. It has a vast variety of blueprints available to start, but certain advanced things must be unlocked by raising your research levels.

It can be upgraded by doing the following:

  • Upgrading the Laser will increase material efficiency, reducing the quantity of materials you require to build things.
  • Upgrading the Manipulators will increase speed efficiency, reducing the time required to build various parts.
  • Upgrading the Matter Bins will allow it to store more materials.

Circuit Imprinter.png

Circuit Imprinter - The Circuit Imprinter is where you print all the circuits you need for exosuits, consoles, or devices.

It can be upgraded by doing the following:

  • Upgrading the Matter Bins will allow it to store more materials.
  • Upgrading the Manipulators will increase material efficiency, reducing the quantity of materials you require to build things.

Autolathe.png

Autolathe - The Autolathe reads data disks and fabricates whatever is on the disk, so long you provide the needed resources. It can be upgraded to hold more materials, and use less materials to fabricate items.

It can be upgraded by doing the following:

  • Upgrading the Laser will increase material efficiency, reducing the quantity of materials you require to build things.
  • Upgrading the Manipulators will increase speed efficiency, reducing the time required to build various parts.
  • Upgrading the Matter Bins will allow it to store more materials.

Protolathe.png

Protolathe - Using the RnD console, you can print items that you have researched using the Protolathe. These can range from more powerful matter bins, or manipulators to upgrade the Protolathe, Autolathe, Circuit Imprinter, and the Exosuit Fabricators.

Destructive Analyzer.png

Destructive Analyzer - The machine used to take apart, recycle, and analyze items. It can be accessed through the nearby RnD Console. Each item analyzed will grant points to research new technologies. Higher research levels will allow additional items to be created at the protolathe, exosuit fabricator, and circuit imprinter. The Analyzer WILL destroy the item upon analyzing, hence the name, Destructive Analyzer.

RnD Console.png

Research and Development Console - The console that controls the destructive analyzer, Protolathe, and Circuit Imprinter. Use this console to check on your research levels and update the core RnD server that hosts all research completed.

Design Disk.png

Design/Data Disk - Items can be downloaded onto this design disk to be sold to crew members, who can then place these disks into autolathes to print items Lazarus has researched.

Research and Development

RnDmenu3.png

Increasing your research levels to better the Expedition is mandatory, if you wish to further the developments of science and technology that is.

To begin researching, you must familiarize yourself with your equipment. The table above explains what each piece of equipment is and what it can be used for. Afterwards, simply place items into the destructive analyzer and analyze them for SCIENCE!

By destroying items, you will yield a specific amount of research points, which can be used to research what you want in the research tree. Destroying high tech items yield more points while lower end items less points. Duplicate items will give you a percentage of what the original tech was worth, and each duplicate will lower the amount of points given per destruction.

Tips

  • Tech storage in the engineering section of NEV "Northern Light" (Fourth Section) contains many items that can jump start your research levels.
  • Using the spare power cells placed around the Lazarus Laboratories can be used to further research on power manipulation or place them into the autolathe to create silver.
  • You can create design disks with chosen items to print for autolathes by using the RnD console. Selling these with items crew members or other departments want can generate money the Overseer, or a scientist, can use to purchase needed materials from either the Maintenance diving Assistants or the Merchant.
