Life Support

Version Introduced Alpha 1
Minimum Useful Size 3x3

Your life support rooms provide oxygen to the rest of your base, and is essential to prevent your citizens from asphyxiating.

Requirements

Life support rooms require at least one Oxygen Recycler. It's also usually a good idea to build a Fire Extinguisher as well, but not neccessary.
You can also place monitors and ordinary plants in life support rooms to help keep your technicians happy.

Additional Notes

While life support provides oxygen to your base without need for ventilation or pipes however, some good tactics are:

  • To have a life support room for each corner of your base.
  • To connect the rooms to your corridors to supply the oxygen evenly.
  • To have more than what you require.
i.e. If you have 4 citizens then perhaps create 3 Oxygen Recycler
This makes sure you have some machines spare if some become damaged or more citizens turn up unexpectedly.


Rooms with more people in (like bars and residences, or high traffic corridors) tend to have less oxygen because there are more citizens breathing it in.

Rooms need to be physically attached to a structure with a life support room in order to be filled with oxygen.

Locking doors will do nothing to stop the spread of oxygen, but clicking on the room and selecting "Seal O2" will cut off its oxygen flow and any citizens inside will slowly suffocate unless the room has breaches or open doors.
