The Text Display is an electrical component used to show text or numbers.


The Text Display is most commonly used to label components' controls or show directions on stations.

The longest text a display can show is about 6-8 characters before the screen starts scrolling. This is based on the width of the number, character or symbol.


When attached to a submarine manually, the text on the display cannot be set without electrical wiring or components.

In the submarine editor, the text set to be displayed can be edited at any point. However, if one wants to create a Text Display that automatically changes the text it is displaying, wiring and electrical components will still be required.
