The Status Monitor is an installation in Barotrauma. It can allow players to quickly ascertain the water level, hull integrity, and oxygen level in each section of the submarine, making attempts to find and fix problems much easier.

Usage[edit | edit source]

Using the Status Monitor will bring up a schematic of the current submarine, in which every area is represented by light-bordered rectangles. The rectangles represent each of the Hull sections designated in the Submarine Editor, which equate to rooms.

The Status Monitor gives a live update to show the status of each room. The current level of water in that section is signified by the room on the monitor filling up with the color blue. Hull breaches will turn the room outline through orange to red depending on severity of damage. Rooms turning from black to red depict the decreasing oxygen in a room. Areas containing pumps, such as ballast tanks and airlock, will display with a blue color on the outline. Hovering over a room on the status monitor will show you the room name and other data about the room.

Submarine Editor[edit | edit source]

Options in the Submarine Editor allow you to not require water or oxygen detectors in order to display water and oxygen data, as well as disable hull integrity display.

The labels for each room are taken from the Room Name of each Hull object, and can be custom set or picked from a list of pre-existing names

Connecting a power source to this input will supply the Status Monitor with power.
Connecting a water detector's signal output to this input will give the Status Monitor information about water level in area where detector is placed.
Connecting an oxygen detector’s signal output to this input will give the Status Monitor information about oxygen quality in area where detector is placed.
