Subcore softscanner

Subcore softscanner

A pod with thousands of tiny tissue probes and a high-energy brain scanner. Once a person is inserted, the system uses the probes and scanner to sense a neuro-psychic pattern that it can analog-transfer to a new standard-tier mechanoid subcore. The person will be left temporarily sick, but unharmed.
Subcores are mechanoid brains and producing any mechanoid requires one. Standard-tier subcores produced by this softscanner can only power standard-tier mechanoids.
Higher tier subcores can be created by building a subcore ripscanner.

The subcore softscanner is a building added by the Biotech DLC that allows for the creation of standard subcores by scanning human pawns.

Acquisition

Subcore softscanner can be constructed once the Standard mechtech research project has been completed. They require Steel 200 Steel, Plasteel 50 Plasteel, Component 4 Component, 8,000 ticks (2.22 mins) of work, and a Construction skill of 5.

Summary

The subcore softscanner takes 150 W of power. Its only purpose is to form a standard subcore, an ingredient used for the gestation of the following mechanoids:

  • Name Amount Type
    Pikeman 1 Mechanoid
    Lancer Content added by the Biotech DLC 1 Mechanoid
    Scorcher Content added by the Biotech DLC 1 Mechanoid
    Scyther Content added by the Biotech DLC 1 Mechanoid
    Tunneler Content added by the Biotech DLC 1 Mechanoid
  • A standard subcore requires 50 Steel and 4 Components to create. Then, a human must sit in the scanner for 7,500 ticks (2.08 mins). The person then receives Scanning Sickness for 4 days, or 24,000 ticks (6.67 mins).[Mechanitor Factor?] This has the following effects:

    Analysis

    Prisoners don't do work, so using them for the subcore scanner carries few penalties. Barring that, almost any colonist is suitable, as scanning sickness is not a terribly strong debuff.
