Life Support Upgrade is an exosuit upgrade.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Life Support Upgrades, contained within Life Support Modules, are procedurally generated upgrades granting bonuses to Life Support.

Upgrade properties[edit | edit source]

Up to three Life Support Upgrades can be installed in each inventory of the Exosuit which can accept Technology --- installing four or more upgrades in a given inventory will disable all upgrades of that type until the upgrade count is reduced to three or less.

Life Support Upgrades have the following bonuses:

  • Upgradecat.energy.pngLife Support Tanks: increases Life Support capacity
  • Upgradecat.energy.pngSolar Panel Power: during the day, reduces the Life Support drain of all movement functions


The table shows the minimum and maximum values of the bonuses, while the number of bonuses indicates how many are granted randomly for each class.

Installing[edit | edit source]

Upgrade modules follow a static progression. The generation seed is used for all module families at the same time. During module installations it goes up by one. The new module they change into correlates to their order of installation. If the game is reloaded, the exact same pool will be offered to the player, no matter the order they install other modules.

Example: If an S-class module had 200 ly Hyperdrive Range bonus on the third installation no matter in what order the former modules are installed or their class, if the same S-class module is used third again, it will once again be the 200 ly bonus module even if the name changes. Only if used second or fourth the module stat may change.

Name generation[edit | edit source]

The names are procedurally generated with a prefix and a suffix as per the table.

The sequence is taken from the game file.
