Reason: "Differentiate between damage sources to the pioneer and everything else"
Health points (HP or hitpoints) refers to the amount of damage one can take before becoming dead/destroyed.
Below is the list of things with health points:
- All hostile creatures
- Lizard Doggos, Space Giraffe-Tick-Penguin-Whale Things and Non Flying Birds
- Spore Flowers
- All wheeled Vehicles
Other objects, such as player built structures, do not have hit points and cannot be damaged by any means.
The player-controlled character, pioneer has 100 health points divided into 10 segments, 10 HP each.
Every time the pioneer takes damage from any source, the sound of a heart monitor beeping will play and a flashing white message will display on the top of the screen reading "DAMAGE TO FICSIT PROPERTY DETECTED". If the pioneer falls below 30 health, the message will turn orange and read "IMMINENT DESTRUCTION OF FICSIT PROPERTY DETECTED". The message will go away after not taking damage for a couple of seconds.
The heart monitor is the only sound that plays, there are no injury sounds or gasps like you might see in other games.
If the health reaches 0, the pioneer dies. The sound of a heartrate monitor flatlining plays, the camera switches to 3rd person and the character enters a rag-doll state. A prompt will be pop up which allows the pioneer to be re-spawned, by pressing Right click. All items in the inventory will drop in the death crate at the location of the pioneer's corpse, which will appear on the compass. The player will then be re-spawned at The HUB with 30 health points. The death crate stays there forever until emptied by the player, even if the player dies to the void; however, its marker disappears from the compass once the game is reloaded.
In a multiplayer session, other pioneers can revive dead pioneers by holding down E over them for five seconds, respawning them with 30 HP.
When health is below 30, the health bar will start flashing red. If the pioneer does not receive damage for 5 seconds, emergency health regen of 1.25HP/sec will take place up to 30 HP, followed by slow regen up to full health.
Healing items may be consumed to restore health, up to 100 (full health). Healing items can be consumed even at full health, regenerating nothing. To consume a healing item, place it in your hands and click the LMB ().

Falling from a height of more than 13.5 meters results in fall damage. Fall damage can be prevented with a U-Jelly Landing Pad, Parachute or Jetpack. Fall damage is slightly reduced when a pair of Blade Runners is equipped. Fall damage is capped at 97 damage, with Blade Runners at 96, therefore all falls are not lethal provided the pioneer has 98–100 HP before touching the ground.
