An ornamented burial receptacle for the honored dead.
- Cover Effectiveness
The sarcophagus is an alternative burial method to the grave. The sarcophagus will then gain an art piece sometimes related to the contained individual. A room with sarcophagi will be classified as a tomb.
The storage tab above the inspect pane can be configured to set what types of pawns can be buried in the selected sarcophagus. The default setting is colonists only.
The command icons (Copy settings, Paste settings) can be used to copy storage settings between sarcophagi and graves. Settings can also be copied to other containers like stockpile zones and dumping stockpile zones; however, settings that a sarcophagus doesn't have (i.e. food) will be copied as disallowed. The copy function can take settings from one container and apply them to many containers, when shift-click is used to select multiple.
A body can be removed from a grave with the 'Open' command, and will be done by a colonist assigned to hauling.
