Cheats guide

First rule: make backup copy of your save directory to protect it from undesirable changes. If you don't know where it is locating – create new game save with custom name and search local discs for file "<your_save_name>.sav"

Before using debug menu you need to activate it first.

Find the installation directory for Oxygen Not Included game. Create empty text file inside "OxygenNotIncluded_Data" directory inside game folder. Change created text file name to "debug_enable.txt". Make sure .txt is the extension and not a part of the file name. Restart Oxygen Not Included.
