Surgery on androids works differently than that of humans, requiring high crafting. The chance of success can be found within the stats of every pawn. Under the “work” section.

Tiers of Androids

Special items and tiers

  • Mech-Fall Transmitter: This is the orbital targetter needed to spawn the M7 Mech. It can be obtained from item stash quests and traders, similar to the way other orbital weapons are gained.
  • The Fractal Enhancement: A special pill developed by ancient archotech societies, when consumed by an android it will increase almost every useful stat per each use. However if a human consumes it they will convert into a fractal mutant.
  • Infected Wanderer: Rarely a human will wander onto the map mid-way through the fractal mutation process. If not dealt within a day they will convert into the mutant.
  • Android Assembly Kits: These kits are useful for setting up colonies as they are only a fraction the weight of the android they can be assembled into, able to set up wherever and whenever.
  • Swarm Mortar: A Mortar filled with several small drones that will attack any hostiles on sight, can be made once T2 Android research is done.
  • Mechanite Storage Upgrades: Each tier of Mechanite storage upgrade increases or decreases health regen speed, with an archotech mechanite storage upgrade halving the time it takes an android to recover from injuries.
  • Metallic Wool: A faux wool made from hundreds of small strands of metal, very good sharp defence stats but quite coarse on human skin. Androids are unaffected however. Metallic wool can also be refined into steel at a 1:2 ratio.

All parts require repair kits to install. Android parts/upgrades are made at the android parts table. Android drugs can be made at the parts table or drug lab. Androids/ -9 units are made at the Robotics production casket. You cannot make Adv+ Replacements.

Unfeeling trait

If you want androids to have an unfeeling trait, it is possible by downloading this patch (direct download). The unfeeling trait (given to androids with the “Remove self will” operation) is changed so androids are unfeeling, not completely neutered in thought and capability

Unfeeling changes:

  • Global workspeed penalty removed
  • Learning speed changed from -100% to -50%

Androids will still function normally, but with majorly reduced social impact and learning capability. Still a capable pawn. More machine than evolving sentient being.
