Psychic Sensitivity

From RimWorld Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Psychic Sensitivity is a Stat: More sensitive people suffer more from negative psychic effects, and benefit more from positive ones. Higher psychic sensitivity also increases neural heat limit.

Acts as a scalar value for things such as Psychic Drones, some Psycasts Content added by the Royalty DLC, and a pawn's Neural Heat Limit. Some effects such as Psychic shock lances are toggled by psychic sensitivity only - if a pawn has a non-zero sensitivity the effect is applied and if they don't it is not, but no other modification to the effect from different levels exists.

Humans and Animals by default have a psychic sensitivity of 100%, Centipedes of 75%, Other Mechanoids of 50%.
