Allows you to control which items you have (e.g. Food, Med Kits, Sock, Shovel), how much resources you have (e.g. Chemicals, Minerals and Power) and allows you to freeze the timer during the scavenger section. If you freeze at 3 seconds, you can still walk down the ladder at any point to start the next phase of the game. You can also use a hot key to add extra time to the timer when you need it (e.g. 10 seconds).
