Artificial body parts are - as the name would imply - non-organic body parts that exist with the purpose of replacing a missing or damaged body part. There are a variety of different body parts that can be prosthetically replaced in/on pawns. Some replace damaged natural body parts, others are improvements for the original organ. Some offer implanted weaponry or additional capabilities.

Most prostheses fall loosely under one of several categories based on tech-level and research:

  • Neolithic/Medieval: Crude wooden replacements, but better than nothing
  • Prosthetics: "Modern" replacements that are still inferior to their natural human limb/organ, or specialized parts that come with some drawback.
  • Bionics: futuristic replacements, better than the original, or exact replicas that are immune to health issues.
  • Archotech: ultimate, futuristic replacements which cannot be crafted.

In many cases, there is not an equivalent part for every tech level - there is not always a primitive, prosthetic, bionic, and archotech version of a given part. In the case of implants, they are usually available in one form only.

Comparison to Flesh

Artificial parts offer some benefits over regular, fleshy counterparts:

  • They are immune to certain health conditions. None can be infected or scarred, while health conditions like cataracts, bad backs, and heart attacks are prevented, depending on the part.
  • Injuries to artificial body parts do not cause pain.

Like organic body parts, artificial parts heal naturally over time, and will be destroyed if the part reaches 0 health.

Installation and Removal

There are two types of artificial parts: implants and prosthetics. Implants are attached to the natural flesh body part, while prosthetics are replacements that require the original to be removed.

Installing artificial body parts requires medical skill, with a minimum of 3 for wooden parts up to a minimum of 5 for implants. Parts can be installed regardless of if they have been researched, as the research is only required to manufacture the parts.

Most prosthetics and implants can be uninstalled freely to retrieve the item back, with the exception of joywires, mindscrews and death acidifiers. Artificial parts cannot be uninstalled from corpses.

Part Compatibility

Most implants are compatible with all other implants with the exception of skin glands. However, prosthetic parts cannot have other prosthetic parts or implants installed on them; a bionic arm cannot have a field hand prosthetic or elbow blade implant attached.
