This mod allows you to enable "Creative Mode" and play without limitations (Well, atleast without a few limitations)
Enabling "Creative Mode" will disable achievements for the save, so keep a separate save to use it on.

What's new in this update?

  • Fixed Instant Research for logistic bot techs

How to use this mod

  • First install the mod, and reboot the game.
  • Press Shift + F4 to open the creative mode settings window
    Creative Mode Settings Window
    Creative Mode Settings Window Enabled
  • You need to enable creative mode to use the rest of the functions below


All controls are rebindable. Detailed explanation of functions are given further below.

Function Default Keybind Description
Infinite Inventory Ctrl + Numpad 1 Toggles Infinite Inventory mode
Infinite Station Ctrl + Numpad 0 Toggles Infinite Station mode
Infinite Reach - Auto-enabled when in creative mode
Infinite Power - Auto-enabled when in creative mode
Instant Research Ctrl + Numpad 6 Toggles Instant Research mode
Lock Research L While Instant Research mode is active, hold this keybind to toggle locking tech
Instant Build Ctrl + Numpad 2 Toggles Instant Build mode
Instant Replicate - Toggles Instant Replicate mode

This is an adaptation of Instant Handcraft and Free Handcraft from DSPCheats by Windows10CE
Unlock all tech Ctrl + Shift + T Press keybind to unlock all tech
5 levels of each infinite tech will be unlocked
Flatten Terrain Numpad 3 Foundations entire planet with the "no decoration" option
Restore Terrain - Hold a combination of the Ctrl and Shift keys while pressing the "Flatten Terrain" keybind to restore terrain

Ctrl - Restore shallow oceans
Shift - Restore mid-level oceans
Ctrl + Shift - Restore deep oceans

You will not be able to apply foundation over restored terrain using the foundation tool, unless you also install the UncoverFoundationedOceans mod.
I recommend to install that mod also so that you can partially flatten an area after restoring terrain, otherwise you will have to "Flatten Terrain" again to be able to build on ocean level area
Bury / Raise Veins Numpad 4 Toggles bury/raise all veins on the planet
Fast Forward Orbital Mechanics Ctrl + Shift + > Moves all planets forward in orbit and rotation
Rewind Orbital Mechanics Ctrl + Shift + < Moves all planets backward in orbit and rotation

Infinite Inventory mode

  • Makes the player inventory have all unlocked items in the game
  • If "Include Locked Items" is enabled, then all the items present in the game will be available in the inventory
  • All items are reset to 9999, with the stack size being 30000 every frame
  • Because the stack is greater, items which go into the inventory are effectively "deleted"

Infinite Station mode

  • This mode is primarily for testing blueprints, by making stations infinitely output to belt and consume from belt without needing any drones/vessels
  • Makes all stations set to supply have items less than half of max
  • Makes all stations set to demand have items more than half of max
  • In the case of ILS, only remote supply/demand is checked. If remote is set to storage, then local is taken

Infinite Reach

  • You can now inspect, interact with, build and delete items across the entire planet. Inspect works even in Planet View mode

Infinite Power

  • All buildings connected to a power network will work at 100% regardless of the amount of power supply
  • Buildings not connected to a power network will still NOT work

Instant Research mode

  • You can lock / unlock specific tech in the tech tree screen and also increase / decrease the research level of infinite research.
  • Hold the "Lock Research" keybind to lock / decrease research.
  • You can also use the Ctrl and Shift keys to modify the number of levels to increase / decrease.
    Modifier Lv.
    None 1
    Ctrl 10
    Shift 100
    Ctrl + Shift 1000

Instant Replicate

  • The 3 options govern how Instant Replicate works. When all of them are off, it is no different from vanilla
    • Is Instant: Replicates every item in a single frame
    • Is Free: Does not use any materials from inventory for replicating
    • Allow All: Allows to replicate materials marked "Cannot make in replicator"
