Barotrauma: Locked Door Mechanism Guide

Guide to Creating a Locked Door Mechanism in Barotrauma

Unleash your creativity in the depths of Barotrauma with this comprehensive guide to designing locked door mechanisms. Elevate your gameplay by transforming rooms into secure areas or brigs, where access is controlled by your engineering prowess. Learn the step-by-step process of wiring toggle switches to doors, and master the art of door security with ease.



When the toggle switch is OFF (red) the door is locked, preventing crew members from opening it. This secure state adds an element of challenge, introducing strategic considerations to crew movements and interactions. Crew members outside the room will find themselves unable to access its contents.

Conversely, when the toggle switch is ON (green), the door is unlocked. This grants normal door functionality, allowing crew members to freely open and close the door as needed. This versatility ensures that you can seamlessly transition between locked and unlocked states, adapting to changing circumstances on your submarine.

Begin by selecting the room you wish to convert into a brig or secure area. Ensure that the door you intend to lock has a Door Control Panel.
