Additional NotesEdit

    • Tools and models are listed in the left half of the inventory and can only be placed in the first 5 cells of your hotbar.
    • Materials are listed in the right half of the inventory and can only be placed in the last 5 cells of your hotbar.
  • There is currently no way to rebind the controls or change the mouse sensitivity.
