The Construction Terminal is an item used for creating specific objects for use in base building.


Terminals of various types can be crafted, each with their own special purposes. The Construction Terminal is used for base building-related items. It can be easily constructed in whole pre-fab structures; it can also be built in rooms that are made from separate wall and floor panels if the room is tall enough to fit it.

It is used by a hired NPC known as an Overseer. The Overseer can be recruited in a Space station after placing the Construction Terminal.

Blueprints for the following items can be acquired at a Construction Terminal through the Overseer's mission Expanding the Base:

Game description[]

Construction terminal

A research station tailored to the needs of Construction Overseers, and equipped with architectural and engineering design software.


The blueprint is given upon returning to one's base after speaking with Apollo's contact during Ghosts in the Machine (the third Artemis Path mission).

Construction Terminal can be built using a blueprint and the following ingredients:

Additional information[]

  • The Construction Terminal can be built in a base or within the player's freighter
  • It can be built in any room which has enough space to accommodate it.
    • The terminal is too tall to fit in a single-floor space of a wood/concrete/metal structure, but will fit within a two-floor space.
  • The Overseer can only occupy one Construction Terminal at a time. Summoning the Overseer to a new Construction Terminal (by interacting with the empty terminal) will force them to relocate from any existing location.
