The Navigation Terminal is an installation in Barotrauma. It is an essential installation in any submarine, as it allows the crew to steer the submarine.

Usage

Using the Navigation Terminal will show its GUI, it displays an outline of the submarine and a reticle to steer the submarine. At an outpost, it can be upgraded to include a Mineral Scanner on Non-Attack Submarines.

The Sonar can either be passive or active:

  • While active the submarine will send a sonar ping in a 360 degree arc, anything it bounces off will be displayed on the GUI. Unchanged, it has the radius of 100 meters.
    • Another option while active is Directional Ping, if enabled the submarine will send sonar pings in 30 degree arcs in the selected direction instead.
  • While passive the submarine scans for sound signatures. They can be generated by the submarine itself (nuclear reactor, engines, weapons) or underwater Creatures. These sound signatures will bounce off of their surroundings and are displayed on the GUI. The range of passive sonar depends on how loud the submarine is.

Velocity Y

The navigation terminal outputs a decimal from -100 to 100. This is adjusted by the neutral ballast level, (allowing it to go above the -100,100 limits).

E.g. neutral ballast of 0.3 would output -120 to 80

Connecting the engines to this output will allow the Navigation Terminal to control the engines thrust, allowing the submarine to move horizontally.
Connecting the ballast pumps to this output will allow the Navigation Terminal to control the how much the ballast is filled, allowing the submarine to move vertically. This outputs -100 to 100 (adjusted by the neutral ballast value).
Outputs a signal when the custom button is pressed on the Navigation Terminal GUI.
Outputs a signal when the custom button is pressed on the Navigation Terminal GUI. This is not present on the Shuttle Navigation Terminal.
Outputs a signal when the custom button is pressed on the Navigation Terminal GUI. This is not present on the Shuttle Navigation Terminal.
Outputs a signal when the docking button is pressed on the Navigation Terminal GUI.
Outputs the current horizontal velocity.
Outputs the current vertical velocity.
Outputs the current horizontal position.
Outputs the current vertical position.
Outputs the Navigation Terminal's current condition. (0-100)
Requires: Screwdriver

Trivia

  • Navigation terminals use "Sonar King" brand sonars, according to The European volume 54.
