Close consol. I don’t how the day is actually divided up. * Refrigerators- Don’t change the readable perishable time to a longer length, but they do completely stop the perishable time. Flying * Minimum requirement to make a flying Machine Did you know that to make a vehicle that flies, you only need a vehicle starter block (that includes a core...all starter blocks include cores), and place these items on it: a pilot chair, a fuel tank with fuel, a generator, and some thrusters pointed up down, left right, front back? *Adjust Third Person View from Pilot seat (thanks to Binhthuy71!) When sitting in the Pilot Chair of a vehicle, adjusting the 3rd person view may be a must: 1) Enter 3rd person view (V key) 2) Raise or lower view with PAGE UP or PAGE DOWN keys 3) Adjust camera for distance by pressing and holding left ALT key for a second to free camera. Use mouse to adjust camera. Press and hold left ALT key for a second to lock camera back in place. Building * There is both a Texture Tool and a Color Tool. Not only that but depending on the block material, the texures will look different from block material type to block material type. Block Rotation * When looking at a finished building and you are new, it can be tough to figure out how the structure was built. * Rotating Blocks on the X, Y, Z axis. * Insert and Delete- Change rotation axis * Home and End- Rotate block around it’s axis. * Page Up and Down- When placing a spawned item, such as a blueprint, move it’s placement up and down. *Caution: There are physics at work. Your building does have structural integrity. but parts can fall off, if integrity is not sufficient. You can select the N key, then check Structural Integrity to check it out. - Y Axis Green is a vertical line that rotates objects around the horizontal points of the horizon. - X Axis a horizontal line (left to right) that rotates objects around it's vertical axis. -Z Axis is a purple horizontal line which rotates around it's axis. Just keep in mind that objects rotate around the line's length, not over its ends. Misc Building Tips * How to create blueprints and then publish your Base/Ship in the Steam Workshop. After you have dotted all of your Is and crossed all of your Ts, it could be time to publish. My first published item is a small vehicle (SV), link: https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1457429561. Controls: Both F2 and Alt-O pulls up the library (blueprint) page. F6 toggles the HUD (User Interface) off and on. V toggles first/third person view. Create a blueprint- To initiate the process, look at your vehicle and press Alt-O this will pull up the blue print page. Notice the image on the right side of this page when any blueprint is selected. If you have no ships/bases subscribed to there won't be any pictures. Take my word that using Alt-O creates the image associated with your blueprint. The screenshot of wherever you were standing and may include your toon if not previously placed in first person view (V). When this item is eventually published, this is will be the first screenshot posted of your vehicle or base. However, after the blueprint is created, this image can be reset by looking at the vehicle again and hitting Alt-O a second time and overwriting the file. I would do this prior to publishing, but the screenshot might still be able to update the first screenshot after it is published, not verified. Blueprint Page- there will be three choices, Save as, Overwrite, and Cancel. With a new blueprint, you must select Save As. A naming box appears and of course you want to give it a unique name, not the default name. I leave the class (SV or CB) attached, because I like to see the ship designation, but that is not required. Your blueprints will appear at the top of the blueprint list on the left side of this page along with items you have subscribed to in the Steam Workshop (for this game). Update Blueprint- by using the Overwrite option. Stage Your first and primary screenshot- as mentioned before, adjust the image associated with publishing a blueprint. Creative mode seems to be the best way to build stuff, because you learn how to build, without grind, and you can select "god mode" (open the consol (~), type in “Godmode”) which on a planet allows you to do things like move your ship to a location, allow it to hover, and quickly move outside the ship in fly mode, right through the walls, frame a shot, and then use Alt-O to overwrite the existing blueprint. To repeat, this process creates a new screenshot of your vehicle tied to the blueprint file. Publish a blueprint- Using Alt-O as originally used to access the blueprint page, there was no publish button. Personal blueprints sit within your game library and are private. To publish this blueprint, access the Blueprint page by accessing your library (blueprints) via the F2 key to see the Publish button. When selected, there are 3 options- private, friends, public. Pick one. My personal preference is to choose private, or friends until I have set up the new Workshop Page that is created advertising your latest creation. Setup the Workshop Page- Proceed to the Steam interface. On the main link section, next to Store, Library, select your user name, scroll to Content and select. Then select Workshop Items. Select your ship/base and on the right side of the Workshop page for your item, will be the Owner Controls, where you can edit the title and description, add/edit, images and videos, change visibility (select Public here) and delete it from the workshop, among other options. * How to verify your ship/base is airtight To do an airtight check, there are three methods to check for leaks. Option 1: On the HUD left down corner there is an O2 symbol, right of the helmet. If the block (BA/CV) your character is standing in have Oxygen, that symbol will be on/lit. This can sometimes be used as an easy way to check if parts of a room or area is airtight. Also know that can take off the helmet if want to. But not needed since the helmet uses outside air before the suit tank. (Thank you StyxAnnihilatorCommander!) For a small block (HV/SV) it is the "airblock" at helmet/head position that can trigger it. Normally this is block height/level 3 from a surface/floor. Might use this when building a vessel with compartment to just have that level or a section of blocks airtight, where the floor and level 1 and 2 are not airtight. As long as there is an unbroken "chain" of airtight blocks, then areas can receive air from a ventilator. (Not sure if there are a max distance). Option 2: By pressing the N key, the Building/Debug window pops up. is to check “Show Airtight Blocks”. Select and press N again to close that window, but the setting remains in effect. If the ship is airtight, on the outside it will be covered with a green color. Any area without green completely around it indicates a leak. Option 3: if you ship has O2, you can select “Show Oxygen”. Every block on the inside of the ship, should have a blue O2 icon. The interior of the ship will be covered by a matrix of blue O2 icons. If it’s not, you have a leak. What can make this challenging is that if you have a leak, there maybe no O2 icons showing anywhere in the problem compartment. * How to Setup a Switch Door Combo - Install the switch on the wall using a Sensors and Signals Block. Place the door(s) if not already done so. - Look at (put your cursor on the switch) and press P. This switch will be highlighted under the Devices Tab. Create a new group. I’m creating a control for my Flight Deck Shutters so I named it “Flight Deck Shutters). - Add the Switch and the shutter door(s) to the group. - Once they are in the group, click on the switch (Device Tab), and name if if you desire in the name box. - While still looking at the Switch, select the Signal Logic Tab. In the Tx Signal Box, create a name for this circuit. I named it “FDS Door Control” (Flight Deck Shutter Door Control). Under On/Off I selected “FDS Door Control” and next to that, selected “Follow” and clicked on Add Circuit button. Before you leave the Device tab, make sure that the switch is Active. On the right side of this page is an Active slider. - Under Devices, select the Shutter Door(s) in this group and name each of them (optional) I used names like FD Shutter 1, 2, etc. -Then under Signal Logic Tab, under the Open/Close window, I selected the Circuit “FDS Door Control” which I created a few steps back. Under Select Circuit, I selected “Inverter” and then clicked on the Add Circuit button. I had multiple shutter doors so I did this for all of the shutter doors. - That should be it. When you close the Control Panel, the switch should have a red light. When you toggle it hitting “F”, it will turn green and your doors should either open or close. * How to Setup a Sensor Light Combo, so the light comes on when the sensor is triggered. (July 2018, Thanks to GasBandit!) - In this example I’ll put a light in my cargo bay that comes on automatically when I walk into the cargo bay and the sensor is activated. - Place a motion sensor- Then while looking at the motion sensor, select P to open the Control Panel. - Put the sensor in a group: Under the Device Tab, Device groups will be listed on the left side of the page. If you have not set any up, it will be blank. It’s convenient to select the Auto Group icon at the top of the page. This will place all existing devices (in the ship or base) into groups, even if they are groups of 1. Note: This section updated. It no longer says the Auto Group will delete custom names, you've created, because that was not correct. - Name the sensor: Under the Device Tab. Naming to something other than the default name is not required, but if you have multiple sensors this makes it easier to keep track of which sensor it is. I named the sensor: Cargo Bay Sensor: Motion Sensor Cargo. Make sure the sensor is toggled to Active. - Configure the boundaries of the sensor: On the right side of the page, select the size of the detection signal coverage. Choose Interactive Setup or manual setup. -Interactive Coverge Setup: A Red Box illustrates the size of sensor coverage. - Enlarge- Left Ctrl + Numpad - To Shrink- Left Ctrl + Left Alt z= Numpad. The NumPad can be confusing. When placing a sensor, if you stand in front of it and facing it: - Num 4 expands or shrinks the left boundary. - Num 6 expands or shrinks the right boundary. - Num 8 raises or lowere the ceiling limit. - Num 2 raises or lowers the floor limit. - Num 5 shrink or extends the sensor area distance in front of the sensor -Manual Coverage Setup- A list of settings can be adjusted using the slider. When one of these items is adjusted, a red box appears showing how the coverge is being changed. A list of settings under Configuration: - Front- Distance in front of the sensor. - Side 1+ is the right side of the coverage box. - Side 1- is the left side of the coverage box. - Side 2+ is the ceiling height of the coverage box. - Side 2- is the floor height of the coverage box. - Select the Signal Logic Tab to name the circuit: under Tx Signal (transmission signal). I named it Cargo Lighting. - Place a light. As with the motion sensor, put the light in a group to name it. I named my Cargo Light: Cargo Light because I only have one in the cargo. Configure the light as far as intensity, and range of illumination. If the range is max, the light will ignore walls and illuminate adjacent compartments. - Set Light Signal Logic under the Signal Logic Tab. You want this light to be connected to the Cargo Lighting Circuit so that it comes on when that circuit is activated by the motion sensor. Under ON/Off click on the drop down list and select Cargo Lighting. On the right side (just under On/Off) , click the drop down menu and select Follow. Note: for Ramps, you want to put a check in the small box to the far right in the On/Off section, a box with an “I:” next to it. That’s it! As long as power is on the aircraft, and the motion sensor is active, when you walk into the cargo bay, the Light will auto illuminate. * Bright Lights- Are your lights too bright? You look at the light, hit P, scroll to your highlighted light and adjust it's intensity and distance. If your light illumination distance is set to a long distance, they will illuminate adjacent spaces regardless of walls. *Godmode or Building Drone? F5 starts up the building drone making it easy reach high places for building. However in your solo game/ or with admin, god mode allows you to fly making it very easy to move about for building purposes, even moving through walls to modify items otherwise unreachable without disassembly. For Godmode, open the consol (~), type in “Godmode”. The consol will say “God mode is enabled now”. Close the consol. -Note: If you lights are set at the default high setting, and located in a relatively small space, they will illuminate neighboring compartments. * Modular Building: https://empyriononline.com/threads/alpha-4-4-modular-building.8297/ Added possibility to build in a modular way and separate mother base from child bases How modular building works: Look at your mother base, open "Building Tools" menu (hotkey N) and select "Connect to" -> you can now place the next block freely on the terrain in a grid (i.e., 90° with respect to the mother base). The new block defines the foundation of the "child base" which will be the same structure as the mother base but the child bases can be physically disconnected from the mother base (and you do not need an extra core). Since the mother and child bases are the same structure, they can be controlled together via the Control Panel. * Merge Bases/Merging Structures: https://empyriononline.com/threads/alpha-4-4-modular-building.8297/ Added "mergestructs" and "setposition" console commands (Creative mode): you can now download different bases from Workshop and merge them together in one base (e.g. to build an outpost with several separate buildings or a small city) How "mergestructs" and "setposition" console commands work: 1. mergestructs ID_mother ID_child -> this will position child into grid of mother (child and mother can still be adjusted) 2a. setposition ID y+/-OFFSET 2b. setposition ID x+/-OFFSET 2c. setposition ID z+/-OFFSET 3. mergestructs ID_mother ID_child -ex -> this cmd will execute the merge command. You can now save the new structure as a blueprint. Please note that this is the first iteration of modular building and structure merging - we will improve & refine these features over time. * How to Put a creative build onto a Survival map?

You need a Ammo Box placed in base. https://steamcommunity.com/app/383120/discussions/0/451850213948408811/ * How to Repair an entire Structure? Did you notice some wavy blocks? They may be damaged. Check them out with the multi-tool. You can’t shoot one block and reapair all of the blocks or like blocks. You have to hunt down each damaged block, but damaged Devices and Turrets can be seen in the Control Panel (P). Dec 2017- https://steamcommunity.com/app/383120/discussions/0/1499000547484194939/ Salvaging Bases/Ships * How to Find Devices in a Base or Ship- When in a large vessel where devices are hidden, you can find them easily by opening the ship/base control Panel (P), select the Device Tab, click on the device in the list that needs to be found. On the right side of the page, click on the “Show on Hud” button, turning it green. This will pop up a label which you can see and easily navigate to, especially if God Mode is available (creative mode, or solo/server with Admin abilities.) Thanks Te5la! * Turn off SI (Structural Integrity) in the console before salvaging any wrecks planetside. They have a tendency to disintegrate unexpectedly if you don't. You can turn SI back on after you finish salvaging. It's not a cheat because SI still has some bad habits. Removing one innocent looking block will often cause a whole wreck to disintegrate.

For coop pve I set my turrets as follows: Alien, Turret, Mounted weapon (though I don't think the ai even uses their fixed weapons so you can probably uncheck this too) I uncheck: Other Faction, Predator, Warp drive, Thruster * How To Group Weapons: Open Control Panel in Base (P), select Devices. You will see the individual for my example Rocket Turrets Listed. At the top of the list click on “+” the Add Group Icon and name the group (Rocket Turrets). Now at the top of the list select the icon that looks like a piece of paper with the folder folded over, labeled “Add to Group”. A window pops open with a drop down menu of existing groups. Scroll down to the group “Rocket Turrets” and add it. Now does this control them as a group? Apparantly not. There is no reason for your turrets to target those in pve play unless you're using your turrets to try to disable an alien patrol vessel but you're better off attacking it with an sv anyway. * How to tell what your weapons fires? Simply highlight it. The description will tell you what ammunition it uses.

Pressing G Sometimes gets bugged out for the toggle. To turn it off you must use Godmode Off *Sector to teleport from one planet to another you have to use Sector to move to the destination's Orbit first. Usage: Sector 'Akua Orbit' note: this command is Cap sensative and requires single quotes if the name is more than one word. it Is possible to use just the first word in certain circumstances like Sector Akua *Teleport can be used multiple ways Teleport toggles you (and ship) to be able to right click on the map to teleport to where you right clicked (a little buggy at times) *Teleport [coordinates] ... teleports you (and ship) to those coordinates. Usage: Teleport -451 124 475 spaces between the X, Y and Z coordinates are mandatory and Commas are optional. *Teleport [playfield] teleports you (and ship) to the connected playfield if it is in the same "Sector" Usage: Teleport Akua teleports you to Akua if you are in either Akua Orbit or on Akua Moon. * Map lets you see everything that shows on the map (structures, Drones, Asteroids, Freighters, etc) must use Map Hide to turn this off. * Setposition This one is powerfull you can move Anything with an ID with this command Including Structures, Ships, PLAYERS, asteroids, POIs, meteorites... even Motorcycles Usage: setposition [id] x,y,z or use math like setposition [id] x+250 examples: setposition 1048 y+100.12 setposition 1048 -2249,111,915 note: coordinates with NO spaces AND requires commas * Find lets you look up Coordinates and ID of any Entity (players, Ships, Asteroids, etc) doesnt require the whole name example: find Xango displays Found 'Xango2000' at (2602.5, 68.8, 4.1): id=1048 Found 'Xango's Tank' at (2638.5, 67.8, -0.3): id=65018 Note: only looks up entities on the current playfield * Ents lists all entities on the current playfield including their coordinates, ID, full name, Faction ID# and a bunch of other information I havent Identified yet. the section starting with p= is the coordinates * Itemmenu Itemmenu enables the H key to toggle the item menu like in creative *Spawn Items when in Survival Mode, solo or admin. https://empyriononline.com/threads/how-to-spawn-items-into-survival-mode.8642/ Open Consol, Type “itemmenu”, no quotes., Close Consol, Press H to see spawn list. *Finishbp Honestly, i dont use this one anymore. Spawnanyblueprint works much easier the way this one works... select a blueprint click "To Factory" then open console and do Finishbp your blueprint is ready to spawn 2 seconds later *OR you can set a time Finishbp 60 to set the blueprint to be ready to spawn in 60 seconds... I have no idea why you would want to but it's in there... * Spawnanyblueprint this one is my new favorite to spawn blueprints this command is a toggle, turn it on and the factory acts just like it does in Creative select a blueprint and click "Spawn" *List doesnt do anything on it's own, you have to follow it with a sub-command Usage: list perm (lists all GM+ by group with their Steam IDs) *List Bans lists banned players and their time till unbanned automatically *Faction This one has quite a few sub-commands so I'll just describe the ones I know how to use. *faction list lists all factions, their abbreviations, their faction ID, number of players on and total as well as the tick (what is Tick?) *faction list [faction] lists all the members of a faction and their faction role Note: Requires the Whole faction name in single quotes and Doesn't work with certain punctuation. * faction Entity allows you to change the faction of the entity... faction entity Ply 104435 would set entity 104435 to Ply faction (Public) * faction join [faction] [player id] puts player in specified faction (I forget if it requires Abbreviation or Whole faction name) * ModeratorGive (this does not work for me) lets you give credits to yourself. Only credits as far as I can tell Example: (This works by iteself * give credit 100 *debugmenu lets you have a UI for teleport AND lets you spawn... things * Destroy usage: Destroy [Struct ID] Doesnt work on players Example: Destroy 4488115 you can destroy and ship, base, motorcycle... anything with an ID except players. Admin Stuff * Setrole allows you to change the role of otehr players... GM, Moderator, Admin or Player doesnt work on faction roles. Uses SteamID or player name Example: setrole xango2000 Admin Telnet * remoteex a telnet command Short for Remote Execute allows you to execute commands on Other players games... so it says. remoteex cl=75 sector Akua uses Empyrion Client ID# (not SteamID, not PlayerID) which is set each time a player logs on WARNING!!! This Is Buggy. When I ran the command above it teleported me to Akua orbit but wouldnt let me do anything. logging off then back on actually put me back where i was before the remoteex command was used and all the structs on the whole planet vanished a few seconds later... not just for me but for ALL players on the planet. Rebooting the server fixed it.
