For Windows PC and Mac OS!

If you’re looking for a guide on how to debug Oxygen Not Included, I’m sure you know what this game is all about. So, let’s skip the lengthy introduction and jump right into it! I know there’s plenty of guide for Windows PC out there but I can’t seem to find one for Mac OS. So here’s the guide that includes both! If you have trouble getting it to work, let me know in the comments and I’ll try to help!

Windows PC

  1. Open up Notepad, do not type anything inside the file. (Or just download the file I provided in the link below.)
  2. Go to File > Save As… then enter debug_enable as the file name and select Text Document as file type.
  3. Navigate to your game folder.
    1. Steam
      Go to your Steam library and right-click on Oxygen Not Included, select Properties. A window should pop up, select the Local Files tab then Browse Local Files
    2. Direct download
      Right-click on Oxygen Not Included shortcut on your desktop, select Properties. From the pop up window, select Open File Location from the Shortcut tab (this should be the default tab).
  4. Double-click on OxygenNotIncluded_Data and save the text file in that folder.

*If you’d rather make your own text file, you can do so with TextEdit application that comes with your Mac OS. I uploaded the file that I made from Notepad on a PC since setting up TextEdit is another guide itself plus it didn’t work for me and this did.
Download text file.

How to debug Oxygen Not Included

Now once you’ve done all that, boot up the game and start a new game. Hit Backspace on your keyboard (Delete for Mac) and your game is now debugged! It’ll look like this:

To access the debug sub-menu, simply hit the Esc > Option > Controls. But just for the sake of easy access, I’ll list it down here for you. Also, Mac user, you might have to remap the key to make it work for you since Mac keyboard is a little different. I personally only use instant build to test different stuff out and I’ve read that some of the debug commands crash the game so consider yourself warned.

List of debug commands:

  • DebugToggle Backspace
  • ToggleProfiler Backquote/Tilde
  • DebugPaintForceFlower AlphaO
  • DebugVisualTest SHIFT + F1
  • DebugGameplayTest SHIFT + F2
  • DebugElementTest SHIFT + F3
  • DebugRiverTest SHIFT + F4
  • DebugTileTest SHIFT + F5
  • DebugSelectMalerlia! CTRL + 5
  • DebugToggleMusic CTRL + M
  • DebugFocus CTRL + T
  • DebugUltraTestMode CTRL + U
  • DebugSpawnMinion CTRL + F2
  • DebugPlace CTRL + F3
  • DebugInstantBuildMode CTRL + F4
  • DebugShowTestMode CTRL + F5
  • DebugDig CTRL + F6
  • DebugExplosion CTRL + F8
  • DebugDiscoverAllElements CTRL + F9
  • DebugTriggerException CTRL + F12
  • DebugRefreshNavDell ALT + N
  • DebugTeleport ALT + O
  • DebugGotoTarget ALT + O
  • DebugToggleSelectInEditor ALT + T
  • DebugPathFinding ALT + P
  • DebugReloadMods ALT + M
  • DebugReloadLevel ALT + L
  • DebugSuperSpeed ALT + Z
  • DebugNotification ALT + X
  • DebugNotificationMessage ALT + C
  • DebugToggleUI ALT + F1
  • DebugCollectGarbage ALT + F3
  • DebugInvincible ALT + F7
  • DebugApplyHighAudioReverb ALT + F8
  • DebugApplyLowAudioReverb ALT + F9
  • DebugForceLightEverywhere ALT + F10
  • DebugCellInfo ALT + F11

Disclaimer: Finally, make sure to start a new game instead of using your existing save file. The game will most likely crash if you try to debug an existing colony. Use the debugging tool at your own risk! I’m not responsible if it crashes your game 😛 That’s it! Now you know how to debug Oxygen Not Included, share this guide to someone who needs it if it helped you.
