Glitterworld medicine

A kit of advanced ultra-tech medical supplies, probably manufactured on a distant glitterworld. It contains advanced polymorphic drugs, nanite diagnostic and healing assisters, a mini-imager, and various multi-use tools.

Herbal medicine

A pack of herbal concoctions typically extracted from the healroot plant. It is less potent than industrial pharmaceuticals, but much better than nothing.


A kit of industrial-era medical equipment. It contains basic drugs, tools for suturing and bone setting, diagnostic devices, and various pads and fluids.


A synthetic precursor chemical. Useless on its own, many drugs require neutroamine as an ingredient.

Neutroamine is an item only available from traders and cargo pods. It can be combined with herbal medicine and cloth to create standard medicine, or synthesize various drugs with it at a drug lab, such as Penoxycyline and wake-up.

Body Parts

Archotech arm

An artificial arm built by an archotech. It's strong enough to crush a thick hardwood branch in its hand, and precise enough to write a sonnet on a grain of rice. It looks and feels like natural flesh, but it's harder to damage than plasteel. Even if it is harmed, it repairs itself over time. its internal workings are a mystery to all human minds.

Archotech eye

An artificial eye built by an archotech. It perceives every type of electromagnetic radiation, including radio waves, infrared, light, x-rays, and gamma rays. Its visual acuity is precise enough to read handwriting from twenty meters away. It can emit various wavelengths of radiation like a flashlight, and has an internal subpersona AI which helps highlight useful visual information. Externally, it looks like a natural human eye, except it can change color at will. Its internal workings are a mystery to all human minds.

Archotech leg

An artificial leg built by an archotech. It looks and feels like natural flesh, but a pair of these can move the user as fast as a decent car, and it's harder to damage than plasteel. Even if it is harmed, it repairs itself over time. its internal workings are a mystery to all human minds.

Bionic arm

One of the most sophisticated arm replacements. Gives extreme strength to its user.

A bionic arm is a very useful replacement for a natural arm. They are universal and can be installed on either left or right arms. It has 125% efficiency, increasing a colonist's manipulation by 12.5% for each bionic arm installed. A bionic arm's strength gives its bearer a melee attack of 9 damage when an attack uses that arm, compared to 7 damage from a natural arm. An installed bionic arm will replace a colonist's arm up to and including the shoulder. They can be crafted for Plasteel 15 and Advanced component 4 and are rarely offered for sale by exotic traders and at Outlander bases.

Bionic ear

An advanced artificial ear implant. A collection of invisible subdermal microphones capture sound and transmit it to a biogel nerve interface that links directly with the auditory nerve. It's sensitive enough to hear a cat before you see it, can't be damaged by loud noise, and automatically tunes itself to pick out meaningful sounds in noisy environments.

Bionic eye

Advanced piece of technology made not only to fully replace natural eye, but also to give supernatural vision abilities.

A Bionic eye is an artificial eye that can replace a natural one through implant surgery. Unlike their natural counterparts, bionic eyes do not scar. They have 125% efficiency, increasing a colonist's sight by 12.5% for each one installed.

Bionic heart

An advanced artificial heart. It has synthetic muscle fibers for a realistic heartbeat, plus a high-flow pump for rapid circulation during high stress. It is better than a biological heart in almost every way.

Bionic leg

"An advanced artificial leg. With its biogel nerve-link, powerful mini-servos, and lattice-dust healing system, it is better than a biological leg in almost every way."

Bionic legs can be installed on a colonist to replace a missing or damaged leg, including the foot. It has 125% efficiency, increasing a colonist's move speed by 12.5% for each one installed.

Bionic spine

An advanced artificial spine. A biogel nerve bundle runs down an articulated plasteel core, surrounded by a lattice-dust healing system. It matches the performance of a biological spine.

Bionic stomach

"An advanced artificial stomach. A set of sensors and chemical synthesizers effectively digest any energy-bearing foodstuff. An integrated lattice-dust healing system automatically repairs any damage caused by the powerful acids. It is better than a biological stomach in every way."

Cochlear implant

An implant which replaces normal hearing. An external microphone transmits a sound signal to electrodes wrapped around the inner ear's auditory sensing nerves. The electrodes stimulate the nerves according to the sound, creating a sensation of hearing. It's not as good as a natural ear, but it's a lot better than being deaf.




Supplies blood and oxygen to all parts of the body. Ready to find a new owner.


Filters and removes waste products from the blood.


Plays an important role in metabolism.


Essential part of the respiratory system.

Peg leg

A wood log fashioned into a crude but effective artificial leg.

Peg legs can be made out of one wooden log by ordering a surgical operation on a colonist. It is the worst kind of leg available, but is better than having a missing foot or leg (50% total mobility). Peg legs will give a mood penalty to colonists with the Body Purist trait because it is a foreign object attached to their body. Peg legs have 60% efficiency.

Power claw

A combat-oriented hand replacement consisting of a mechanical hand with a vicious claw on each finger. It is vicious in combat, and its powerful mini-servos can crush a skull like a natural hand crushes an egg. The blades can retracted, making it as useful as a biological hand for non-combat tasks.

Power claws are powerful bionic hand replacements. A power claw can only be installed on a natural arm. If a power claw is installed on an arm which then gets replaced with an artificial arm, the claw will be removed and boxed for reuse. A power claw deals 18 damage compared to 6 damage from a fist. Power claws cannot be crafted and must be bought, given as a quest reward or found in item stashes. When meleeing a target, a colonist with no weapon often switches hands to attack. This means that a colonist with one power claw and one normal fist is less effective than having two claws. A colonist equipped with one or more claws should not wield a melee weapon because they will use the weapon instead of their claws.

Prosthetic arm

Simple but durable arm prosthesis.

Simple prosthetic arms can sometimes be purchased from traders. A simple prosthetic arm has 50% efficiency. Therefore, one simple prosthetic arm and one healthy arm provide 75% manipulation. Having two simple prosthetic arms provide 50% manipulation. Simple prosthetic arms will not give a mood penalty to colonists with the Prosthophobe trait.

Prosthetic heart

A heart prosthesis. It contains an electric motor that pumps blood smoothly around the body. Users often report feeling tired, but it's better than the alternative.

Prosthetic leg

Simple prosthesis made to replace missing leg. Not very comfortable but quite efficient.

A prosthetic leg reduces a colonist's mobility to 92.5% while having one healthy leg. Two prosthetic legs provide 85% mobility. They are much better than a peg leg but a discount version of a bionic leg.

Scyther blade

Hand replacement with a telescoping blade. Scavenged from an incapacitated scyther mechanoid. Not very comfortable, but quite effective as a close-range weapon.

Wooden foot

Installs a wooden foot.

Wooden feet can be made out of one wooden log by ordering a surgical operation on a colonist. It is the worst kind of foot available but is better than having a missing foot (50% total mobility). Wooden feet have 80% efficiency.
