Hello visitor! A note about the contents of this wiki: Barotrauma is a game with several years' worth history as a free-download open source game, and this wiki has been written primarily based on this legacy version. As such, not all content is relevant to the Steam release. So please wait patiently as the contents are updated, and feel free to contribute new information once the Steam version of Barotrauma is released!

Containers

From Barotrauma Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Containers are simple Installations that provide storage space. They prove beneficial in freeing up space in a crew member's inventory, as well as organizing items in general.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Interacting with a container will open a GUI table of slots for items. From here the player can drag and drop items into or from the table to store or extract them. Double-clicking on an item also allows quick storage/extraction.

Properties[edit | edit source]

  • Some containers are watertight. This property allows safe storage of items that explode when in contact with water, such as Sodium, Potassium, Magnesium, or Lithium.
  • Access to some containers is restricted to crew members that have certain Jobs (or anyone in possession of their ID Card). In vanilla submarines, there are only two such containers: the Toxins Cabinet is restricted to Medical Doctors and Captains, and the Secure Cabinet is restricted to Security Officers and Captains.
  • While most containers can hold both small and medium items, some are limited to small items. The only medium items in the game are the Fire Extinguisher, the Harpoon Gun, all 3 types of Harpoons, the Riot Shotgun and the Grenade Launcher.
  • Crates can be held and moved freely, by opening them (left-click). They will also be subject to gravity and water flow, and in rare cases may therefore drift outside of the submarine in the event of a large hull breach and violent impacts. Storing them on a Crate Shelf prevents this, in addition to protecting their contents from water.

Submarine Containers[edit | edit source]

These containers are installed on the walls, and can not be picked up and moved around.

Editor Containers Settings[edit | edit source]

Once placed, cabinets placed using the submarine editor can be set to auto-populate with appropriate items. To accomplish this, one must add the appropriate tags in the "Tags" field. See below for a table showing what items are included in each tab.

Additionally, the Secure Steel Cabinet can be set to only be accessible by crew members carrying a specific id tag. To accomplish this, enter the desired id(s) into the "Picking required" field that is shown when the safe is selected in the submarine editor. Note that this mechanic is identical to the one used to secure doors against certain member of the crew.

Values below are taken from materials.xml, medical.xml, medmaterials.xml, tools.xml, weapons.xml, and buffs.xml, and is accurate as of v0.9.8.0.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • While all items that hold other items are "containers", this page focuses on the items whose primary purpose is to hold other items.
