A hardsuit, also knows as the RIG suit, is a suit which is not only EVA-capable, but armored.
Un/Equipping a Hardsuit
Since Hardsuits deploy themselves to cover your entire body, before wearing one make sure you there are no obstructions in the way.
Remove any armor, coat or anything over your jumpsuit, gloves and hats. (Note that you don't need a breathing mask, unlike with voidsuits, as they come inbuilt in the hardsuit) Wear the Hardsuit control module on your back, instead of a backpack/satchel. Deploy the hardsuit by accessing the 'Deploy Hardsuit' command in the Hardsuit tab. Either click the 'Toggle hardsuit' command on the same tab or open the detailed suit interface ('Open Suit interface' command) and activate it there, to start the sealing process and activate your shiny new hardsuit. Make sure to stand still until components activate and your vision clears
To unequip, simple select 'Toggle Hardsuit' again to deactivate the parts one by one. Only then will you be able to take the control module off your back. Modules Each hardsuit comes with a set of standard modules for the corresponding department it is made for. Mining hardsuit would have the drill and ore scanner, medical hardsuit has a set of medical syringes, etc.
Currently selected module can be activated by middle click on the mouse (default). This can be changed on OOC tab, verb toggle hardsuit activation mode, to work with alt-click or control-click instead.
Modules are controlled using the 'Hardsuit modules' tab or in the hardsuit interface. Remember that some modules use power, and that a depleted power cell will require premature Maintenance. (see below). A list of modules can be found below. Currently, modules can only be found in certain RIG Suits that spawn with inbuilt modules. Modules will be able to be built at a later stage.
