Tips and tricks[]

  • Do not rush. Clear out one or two rooms and set up useful Appliances such as the Microwave and the Bed before trying to clean the rest of the ship up.
  • Before tackling a room, it is advisable to move Appliances such as the Sink and the Recycler to near the room's entrance in order to speed up room clearance.
  • The Quarantine Spray is extremely useful. While it impedes any interaction with its target object, the Spray can save a lot of time and energy by temporarily locking down areas and/or protecting energy sources.
  • Be careful to not leave Mops and/or Buckets inside dangerous areas. Retrieval of those might cost the game.
