3. All Items 1×1 Mod:

Every Subnautica item is different and it takes different space, but when we go for loot due to insufficient space we can not take enough items with us.

This All Items 1×1 Mod will change the Space requirement for all items in Subnautica to a 1:1 ratio and then whatever you carry will take only 1X1 Space only.

4. Safe Autosave Mod:

The Subnautica does not save your game until you Save the game Manually, and when you save the game it overlaps the older file.

It’s not possible to keep your Cyclops in Sunlight every time you want to charge it. But yes you can build a separate Nuclear Power generator inside your Cyclops using this Cyclops Nuclear Upgrades Mod.

If you are a BioReactor Lover and want a Bioreactor in your Cyclops you can use this Mod.

8. Cyclops Docking Mod:

This Mod is awesome, Now your cyclops will not need any charger or it will not hit your base anymore. You just need to install a small docking module to your base and your cyclops will get parked there.
