Keyboard controls can be rebound in settings.

  • Pressing Space while driving a Truck or Explorer will perform a drift.
  • Holding down Resource Scanner V opens a selection wheel, allows selection of a target resource.
  • Holding down Emote T allows selecting the emote to perform.
  • The Map is only accessible once it has been researched in Tier 1.
  • Crouching while running will perform a slide.
  • Crouching before jumping will result in a higher and longer jump, especially if the Blade Runners equipped.
  • Approaching a Resource node and interact E to start manual mining. To do AFK hand mining, open the Inventory Tab ↹ while E is held down, then let go.
  • While throwing a Nobelisk, holding down Left allows them to be thrown farther.
  • Photo Mode can be used as binoculars by zooming in Middle.
  • Ctrl + F will enter Mass Dismantle mode, where up to 50 structures can be highlighted to be dismantled simultaneously. Letting go and pressing Ctrl while aiming at an already highlighted building will toggle deselecting, for as long as the key is held.
  • Holding None button 4 while dismantling will only mark buildings of the same type as the first building that was selected.
  • Holding Left Ctrl while building will align the building in a straight line, or snap to the next building.
  • Pressing Middle in build or dismantle mode while aiming at a building will copy that building, but not its configuration.
  • All building shortcuts are only for buildings and vehicles in the Build Menu or Customizer materials and colors. They are not for equipment or consumables.
    • These can be assigned by hovering over a building/vehicle in the Build Menu and pressing the keybind.
    • These might not work for some keyboard layouts. This can be fixed easily by manually rebinding each key.
  • There are 10 rows of hotbar, use Alt+Middle to cycle through them.
  • If a Customizer material is bound to a hotbar slot, Left Alt + that hotbar slot will change all buildings in the hotbar to use that material.
  • In the Esc menu, clicking the 'Respawn' kills the player, should the player get stuck.
  • In the Inventory window Tab ↹ as well as containers, Right splits a stack in half. Holding down Right on the stack enables custom splitting using a slider or number inputs, as well as allow to view the item in the Codex.
  • The N Quick Search is also a simple single-line calculator (see below).

Combination functions:

Keys Function
Left + ⇧ Shift Transfer the clicked item (or single stack) between opened inventories / quickly equip equipment
Left + Ctrl Transfer all of the clicked items of same type between opened inventories

Controller (gamepad)[]

The game natively accepts controller input. However, without Steam compatibility layers, there is no customization available (unless config files are edited) and the functionality is very limited, making it effectively impossible to play the game normally.

These keybinds may not apply for the Steam Deck, as it does use the Steam compatibility layers.

Right Stick Move Camera (not in vehicles)
Left Stick Movement (cursor in some menus)
Start Escape Menu (close some menus)

These controls were tested on an Xbox 360 controller.

In-game calculator[]

The Quick Search in-game N also serves as a simple calculator. The following operators are supported:

  • .: Decimal
  • + - * /: Arithmetic
  • ^: Exponentiation / Power of
  • %: Remainder
  • ( ): Parenthesis
  • sqrt( ): Square root

Other roots are possible using fractional exponentiation such as 8^(1/3)=2. The calculator enforces the order of operations.[1]
