To-Do List UI

To-Do List UI. Lists the materials you need to build or craft what you want.

The To-Do List is an interface that allows the registration of buildings and components that the pioneer planned to create, so that the required materials can be calculated and be viewed. If several items are added, you can view the summary of the total components required to make all of it. Each time an item on the list is made or built, one will be subtracted from the list. If all are done crafting or built, the To-Do List will be closed.

The list also contains two sections for your freeform text notes: Public Notes and Private Notes. If you always a maintain a recipe in the To-Do List that isn't a Note, it makes it very easy to edit the lists at will by opening any menu (examples: inventory, build) that displays the cursor. Otherwise, to access the To-Do List you have to open the codex (O), select something, and hover over the recipe to add it to the To-Do List to create it.


The To-Do List is located on the right side of the screen. The top section of the UI shows the amount of buildings and/or components that have been added. The lower section shows the total components required, as well as the current amount in inventory.

  • If you have an insufficient amount of a certain material, its progress bar will be displayed showing how much resources is lacking.
  • If you have a sufficient amount of a certain material, its progress bar will be filled in white, and a tick will be displayed.

The maximum amount of each building or material that can be displayed is 2,147,483,647.[1]

Adding and removing items[]

To add buildings, press Q to open the build menu and click the + icon that appears when you mouse over the desired building. Once added, a icon appears as well, which will remove one of those buildings from the list.

To add components, Right-click the component in the Craft Bench or Equipment Workshop and click "Add to To-Do List". Once added, you can also Right-click and click "Remove from To-Do List" to remove it.

By default, you can hold down the ⇧ Left Shift key to adjust the amount by 10. You can also type the number into the text box.

Once there are items in the list, you can add or subtract items directly in the To-Do List UI by opening the build menu. You can also delete the whole list by selecting "Clear List" at the bottom, provided the build menu is active.


Some material may be hidden at the lower window so that it requires the player to scroll down to view it. To scroll through the To-Do List, open the build menu first. You could also enable the scrolling of the to-do list by open any of the in-game UI.

Text Formatting[]

The To-Do List allows simple text formatting, similar to html but very simplified. There are only a handful of blocks, and all of them end in </>.


An <h> block indicates a header. Text will be bigger and bulkier


An <ob> block, changes the text color to orange.

Square Brackets[]

Square brackets are always orange unless they are in a header block.


Nesting an <ob> block within an <h> block does not seem to work.
