Peg legs are a artificial body part that replaces a pawn's leg. It is the worst kind of leg available, but is better than having a missing leg.

Acquisition

Unlike most other prostheses, peg legs don't have a separate item form. Instead, when ordering a surgical operation on a pawn, Wood 1 Wood is consumed and the peg leg is added to the pawn. Converting a log to a peg leg does not take any work. Notably, when removed the peg leg turns back into a wooden log.

Summary

Peg legs replace the user's entire organic leg. The peg leg has a part efficiency of 60%. This partially replaces the functionality of a normal leg - when coupled with each leg body part having a Moving importance of 50%, it results in restoring 30% moving per missing leg replaced, or a loss of 20% when replacing a healthy leg.

Moving, in turn, affects the following stats: Hunting Stealth, Melee Dodge Chance, Move Speed. This results in a directly proportional change to a pawn's move speed, and a change in melee dodge chance equivalent to losing 3.6 levels of Melee skill per leg replaced. Due to how the stat is fit to a post-process curve, this can result in the melee dodge chance dropping to 0% for pawns with skill under 9, when replacing one leg, or under 12 for both legs.

Each peg leg results in -10% character quality and thus a 10% reduction in the affected individual's pawn value.

As an artificial part, peg legs will give a mood buff to anyone with the Body modder trait, and a mood penalty to anyone with the Body purist trait.

Installation

Installing the part requires 1,500 ticks (25 secs) of work, Wood 1 wood, 2x medicine of herbal quality or better, and a Medical skill of 3.

Removing the part requires ? of work, 2x medicine of herbal quality or better, and a Medical skill of ?.

If the operation fails, the part has a chance[What Chance?] to be destroyed.

Analysis

The peg leg is certainly better than a missing or otherwise inoperative leg, but you should strongly consider replacing it with a modern prosthesis as soon as possible. Movement is important for combat, many types of work, and general efficiency (getting up from bed to work...), making it a very valuable stat. For pawns that don't move as much, like researchers, this upgrade is less important.

Alternatively, peg legs can be installed on your prisoners, making them easier to stop when starting a prison escape or going berserk. Unlike healthy organic legs, peg legs can be removed; removing them will result in no leg, and removing both will permanently incapacitate a pawn. As peg legs actively make the pawn worse, it isn't recommended to install peg legs on those who you would like to recruit.

In cases where only the foot is missing, a wooden foot only has half the Moving penalty, which means it restores more movement, and it has the exact same material and research requirements.
