Robotics Equipment

Machines

Exosuit Fabricator

Exofab.png

The Exosuit Fabricator is your main construction machine, you feed materials into it, and it builds all the things you could possibly need. It can make prosthetic limbs, cyborg parts and internal components, exosuit parts, exosuit equipment modules, and a variety of useful miscellaneous items like power cells. It has a vast variety of blueprints available to start, but certain advanced things must be unlocked by raising your research levels. These will be explained later.


In addition, the machine itself will also be upgraded by simply researching two specific techs. These benefits have no cap, and will continue to have a benefit at any increased research level (The levels themselves are capped by the availability of high tech items to research)

  • Materials research will increase material efficiency, reducing the quantity of materials you require to build things.
  • Data Theory research will increase speed efficiency, reducing the time required to build various parts

It can be upgraded

  • Upgrading the Laser will increase material efficiency, reducing the quantity of materials you require to build things.
  • Upgrading the Manipulators will increase speed efficiency, reducing the time required to build various parts
  • Upgrading the Matter Bins will allow it to store more materials

Cyborgs

See also Cyborgification Contracts. These contracts are important - without a signed, stamped contract, making a man into a machine is technically murder - no matter how much he wants it!

The Cyborg is the Roboticist's primary creation and upkeep. They are tasked with helping the station's inhabitants in their daily life and trying to kill everyone when the AI is insane. Each cyborg is required to follow the AI's laws, and may choose one of the AIs in the event that more than one exists.

Making a Cyborg

  1. Fill the Exofab.png Exosuit Fabricator with as much Metal.png metal as it will hold.
  2. Click on the Exosuit Fabricator to open its menu. Select Add To Queue for Robot Endoskeleton, Left Arm, Right Arm, Left Leg, Right Leg, Torso, and Head then click on Process Queue in the right side.
  3. Wait for a few minutes for the pieces to be built. You will likely need to add additional metal to the Fabricator in order for it to finish.
  4. When putting the parts together, use the Robot endoskeleton.png Robot Endoskeleton as a base. Attach components by picking them up and then clicking on the endoskeleton.
    • Add 2x Sflash.png Synthetic Flash to the Head before attaching it. You do this by picking up the flashes and then clicking on the head. .
    • The Cyborg Torso will need 1x CableCoils.png wires and 1x Powercell.png power cell.
    • The arms and legs can be done easily by simply picking them up and placing them on the Cyborg Endoskeleton.
  5. The last step is installing either an MMI.pngMMI or a Posibrain.pngposibrain.

Extract a brain for the Cyborg

Note: Check with the Chief Medical Officer before agreeing to perform a brain extraction on a living human. Medbay has anesthetics, which are optimal when someone is cutting into your skull with a circular saw. Additionally, it will clear up bookkeeping problems regarding the addition of a new cadaver in the morgue.

  1. (Optional) Complete Prepping for Surgery.
  2. Aim for the organ's location in the Damage zone.png Damage Zone. (Head for brain/eyes, chest for heart/liver/lungs, groin for appendix/kidney)
  3. Use a Scalpel.png scalpel to cut back the flesh.
  4. Use the Hemostat.png hemostat to stop any potential bleeding.
  5. Use your Retractor.png retractors to lift up the skin.
  6. Use the Saw.png saw to cut through the bones.
  7. Use the Retractor.png retractor to separate the bones.
  8. Use the Scalpel.png scalpel. This will open up a window asking you which organ you'd like to cut loose. Select the Brain.
  9. Use the Hemostat.png hemostat. This will open up a window asking you which loose organ you'd like to remove. Select the Brain again.
  10. Place the brain in an MMI empty.png MMI.
  11. (Optional) Before you give the Cyborg a new brain, you can name it anything you or your client wants. Grab a Pen.png pen and use the pen on the Cyborg to rename it. Once you place the brain in the Cyborg, this step will not be completable.
  12. Carry the MMI.png MMI over to your finished Cyborg construct that you made before, and click on it to add the brain into the Cyborg.

You can also use a normal table instead of an operating table, but this has a chance of missing one third of the time.

So You Decapitated Your Patient

Don't panic just yet! You can still complete the brain extraction. It's actually easier then extracting the brain from an attached head. Use a Scalpel.png scalpel, then a Retractor.png retractor, then a Hemostat.png hemostat.

Cyborg Maintenance

You'll often have Cyborgs run up to you with any number of problems. Here's how to deal with them most of the time.


Repair

When Cyborgs get dented, they'll come to you for repairs. Luckily, most repairs are simple

  1. Equip a WeldingHelmet.png welding helmet on your head.
    • Note: Be sure to remember this step or you could go blind!
  2. Place a Welderon.gif welder in your hand, click on it while it's in your hand to light it, then click on the Cyborg repeatedly to repair it. Engineer cyborgs can also repair themselves and other cyborgs like this.

Occasionally Cyborgs are inflicted by more advanced damage that hurts their internal wiring. If this is the case:

  1. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to unlock the panel.
  2. Crowbar.png Crowbar open the panel.
  3. Powercell.png Remove the cyborg's power cell by clicking on it with an empty hand.
  4. Screwdriver tool.png Use a screwdriver to expose the wires.
  5. CableCoils.png Use a cable coil to replace damaged wires.
  6. Screwdriver tool.png Screwdriver the cyborg to unexpose the wires.
  7. Crowbar.png Crowbar the panel shut.
  8. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to relock the cover.

Cyborg Component Repair

Sometimes robots will have damaged components that need to be removed and replaced. Removing them is pretty straightforward.

  1. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to unlock the panel.
  2. Crowbar.png Crowbar open the panel.
  3. Powercell.png Remove the cyborg's power cell by clicking on it with an empty hand.
  4. Screwdriver tool.png Use a screwdriver to expose the wires.
  5. Crowbar.png Crowbar out the desired component.

Occasionally a robot will be so damaged that only the brain is salvageable, or perhaps it's volunteering for an AI core. You can remove the brain by following these steps.

  1. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to unlock the panel.
  2. Crowbar.png Crowbar open the panel.
  3. Powercell.png Remove the cyborg's power cell by clicking on it with an empty hand.
  4. Screwdriver tool.png Use a screwdriver to expose the wires.
  5. Wirecutters.png Cut all five wires with wirecutters.
  6. Crowbar.png Use a crowbar to remove the MMI.

Human Prosthetic Repair

You may be asked to repair damage to the artificial limbs of your fellow crew members.

To fix brute damage:

  1. Follow the same procedure as outlined above for fixing dents in cyborgs, making sure to target the specific area that requires fixing.

To fix burn damage:

  1. CableCoils.png Use a cable coil on the damaged area.

Upgrading the Power Cell

Cyborgs that start when the game starts will likely come straight to you for an upgrade in the first few minutes of the game.

Help them out by upgrading their power cell, which will lessen the amount of time they need to visit the recharging station. Click on the Cyborg with the following items (in order):

  1. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to unlock the panel.
  2. Crowbar.png Crowbar open the panel.
  3. Click on the Cyborg with an Empty hand.png empty hand to take out the Powercell.png power cell and replace it with the higher-capacity power cell.
    • Note: The default power cell capacity in Cyborgs is 7,500. All of the power cells you find in your office should be at least 15,000, and the Science Department can research power cells that exceed 30,000.
  4. Crowbar.png Crowbar the panel shut.
  5. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to relock the cover.

Modules

Once a player Cyborg chooses a module (Engineer, Janitor, Security, etc) they cannot change the module without your help.

You can manually reset its module to allow it the option of choosing a new one by following this order:

  1. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to unlock the panel.
  2. Crowbar.png Crowbar open the panel.
  3. Robotics reset module circuit.png Print out a reset upgrade in the fabricator, and insert it into the cyborg.
  4. Crowbar.png Crowbar the panel shut.
  5. Id regular.png Swipe an ID with Robotics access to relock the cover.

This also works with any other module - just replace the "reset module" with the module of your choosing.

Modifications

Cyborgs that have had their programming tampered with can be repaired by resetting their AI connection and LawSync status, by manually pulsing the wiring.

In the unlikely event that an AI goes crazy, a trained Roboticist or other technician should be able to sever the connection to the AI entirely by cutting the correct wire.

There are three lights in the cyborg with three corresponding wires:

  • LawSync: If this light is on, it means that any laws uploaded to the AI are also uploaded to the cyborg. The cyborg cannot be given different laws to the AI as long as this is on. This light will turn off if the AI Link light is off, regardless of wire status.
    • Pulsing does nothing.
    • Cutting will do nothing, as long as the AI link light is on. If the AI link light is off, cutting and then turning the AI link back on will cause the cyborg to be slaved to an AI, but not synced with it's laws.
    • Mending this wire will turn the LawSync light back on as long as the AI link light is also on. The cyborg will then resume syncing with the AI's laws. If the AI link light is off, mending this will turn the light on, only for it to turn off again.
  • AI Link: If this light is on, it shows that the Cyborg is slaved to an AI and must follow that AI's orders.
    • Pulsing this wire allows you to pick an AI for the cyborg to be slaved to if there are multiple AIs. If there is only one AI, pulsing this will simply turn it on and slave the cyborg to it, if it is off.
    • Cutting this wire will cause the Cyborg to be unslaved from the AI and bound only by it's laws. This also turns off LawSync, as the cyborg has no AI to sync to.
    • Mending this wire does nothing. You need to pulse it to reconnect it to an AI.
  • Module Lock: If this light is on, the module of the cyborg cannot be changed.
    • Pulsing this will reset the module of a cyborg and allow it to pick a new one.
    • Cutting this wire will cause the cyborg to be locked to the standard module and be unable to change or use any items. They can still remote control devices however.
    • Mending this wire will allow the cyborg to change modules.

An emagged cyborg will have no LawSync or AI link and cannot be reset.

Remember, cyborgs are very expensive! Do not destroy them unless the cyborg is completely out of control, and resetting the AI and LawSync status doesn't work.

Creating a Spiderbot

Spiderbots are temporary bodies for brains.

They can carry around small items, zap things, move through vents and generally act like pests. They are seldom used on the Aurora, but can still be constructed.

Combine the following:

  • Robot head.
  • Manipulator.
  • Occupied MMI or positronic brain.

IPCs

Sometimes, you will need to repair synthetics other than Cyborgs, such as IPCs. The procedures for repairing an IPC are quite different from that of cyborgs, and are as follows:

Opening and Closing Surgical Sites

The first and last steps of most repairs.

  • To open a surgical site;
  1. Screwdriver tool.png Open the limb's hatch using a screwdriver.
  2. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  • To close a surgical site;
  1. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  2. Screwdriver tool.png Open the limb's hatch using a screwdriver.

Exterior repair

In the case that any damage is only external (Anything less than "Severe" or "A lot of"), damage can be repaired.

For dents:

  1. WeldingHelmet.png Equip a welding helmet on your head.
  2. Welderon.gif Place a welder in your hand, click on it while it's in your hand to light it, target the affected organ and then click on the IPC.

For burns:

  1. CableCoils.png Target the affected organ and click on the IPC with a cable coil.

Advanced interior repair

IPCs possess their own set of internal organs, the locations and identities of which are as follows (Organs with their name in bold are vital - removing it will kill the IPC!):

  1. Microbattery - chest
  2. Optical sensor - head
  3. IPC identification tag - head
  4. Positronic brain - head (NOTE: Removing this will only kill the IPC chassis, not the posibrain itself. The brain will function like a normal posibrain.)

Organ repair

While targeting the organ's parent limb:

  1. Screwdriver tool.png Open the limb's hatch using a screwdriver.
  2. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  3. Nanopaste.png Screwdriver tool.png Mend the damage to the organ using nanopaste or a screwdriver.
  4. Crowbar.png Close and secure the hatch using a crowbar.

Organ removal

While targeting the organ's parent limb:

  1. Screwdriver tool.png Open the limb's hatch using a screwdriver.
  2. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  3. Multitool.png Decouple the target organ (you can choose if there are multiple) using a multitool. NOTE: It may take multiple clicks before it works.
  4. Hemostat.png Remove the target organ with the hemostat
  5. Crowbar.png Close and secure the hatch using a crowbar.

Organ attachment

While targeting the organ's parent limb:

  1. Screwdriver tool.png Open the limb's hatch using a screwdriver.
  2. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  3. Insert the organ by clicking on the IPC with it in your hand.
  4. Screwdriver tool.png Reattach the target organ using a screwdriver.
  5. Crowbar.png Close and secure the hatch using a crowbar.

Positronic brain installation

While targeting the head:

  1. Screwdriver tool.png Open the head's hatch using a screwdriver.
  2. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  3. Install the Positronic Brain by clicking on the IPC with it in your hand.
  4. [[File:Crowbar.png]5] Close and secure the hatch using a crowbar.

Voice mending surgery

Helping a poor Shell sing again! While targeting the Shells' mouth.

  1. Scalpel.png To open the Shells' Synthskin face and reveal the neck.
  2. Multitool.png or CableCoils.png To mend the voice modulator.
  3. Retractor.png To bend the Shells' Synthskin face and neck back into place.

IPC revival

Time to bring a dead robot back to life: While targeting the head:

  1. Screwdriver tool.png Open the head's hatch using a screwdriver.
  2. Crowbar.png Pry open the hatch using a crowbar.
  3. Multitool.png Decouple the Positronic brain.
  4. Hemostat.png Remove the brain with the hemostat.
  5. Exofab.png Create a full cyborg chassis.
    • The IPC's species depends on the brand of the torso. Different brands can be ordered through cargo.
  6. Multitool.png Use the multitool on the head to disable the law manager.
  7. Build a cyborg and follow the steps above.

Bots

As a Roboticist, you serve another important purpose, making NPC robots. Robots can benefit the station in many ways, and are really easy to create. The current list of robots, and how to make them, is as follows:

Medibot.gif Medibot

These will only inject chemicals if the chemical helps with the target's damage by default.

They can also be Emagged to repeatedly inject anyone with harmful chemicals. Note that these don't synthesise their own chemicals, except tricordazine.

Combine the following ingredients in order:

  1. Cyborg Right or Left Arm.
  2. Empty SMed.png Medkit.
    • Note: Differently colored medkits will also change the resulting color of your Medibot.
  3. (Optional) Name the bot with a Pen.png pen.
  4. Healthanalyzer.png health analyzer.
  5. Proximitysensor.png proximity sensor.
  6. Beaker.png beaker filled with the medicine of your choice.

Cleanbot.gif Cleanbot

Cleanbots are great, as they serve the exact same purpose as the Janitor.

Even better is that it uses Space Cleaner to mop, so no slipping on everything!

  1. Bucket.png bucket (Grab it from the Janitor or make with Autolathe)
  2. Proximitysensor.png proximity sensor.
  3. (Optional) Name the bot with a Pen.png pen.
  4. Cyborg Right or Left Arm.

Farmbot.png Farmbot

A relatively useful bot that helps with the mundane aspects of Hydroponics and Xenobotany.

It will water plants, clearout weeds, harvest plants, and refill nutrients To make one:

  1. Attach a robot arm (cyborg right or left arm) to a Watertank.png water tank.
  2. Attach a plant analyzer.
  3. Attach a Bucket.png bucket.
  4. (Optional) Name the bot with a Pen.png pen.
  5. Attach a mini-hoe.
  6. Proximitysensor.png proximity sensor.

Floorbot.gif Floorbot

Floorbots are nice to have around when some asshole starts crowbarring up floor tiles or some traitor has blown apart a section of the station.

They zoom around and repair busted floor tiles. To make:

  1. Empty Btoolbox.png toolbox (Must be a blue one)
  2. Floor Tiles.png Floor tile (click on a stack of metal while it's in your hand to open a menu for making these)
  3. Proximitysensor.png proximity sensor.
  4. (Optional) Name the bot with a Pen.png pen.
  5. Cyborg Right or Left Arm.

Keep in mind that Floorbots have a limited number of floor tiles. This number can be observed by popping up their control panel.

I AM THE LAW Securitron

Basically, Officer Beepsky without the personality.

You usually won't need to build any of these, but they can be hilariously helpful for traitors whom have invested in a Electromagnetic Card (E-mag), as they tend to run around stunning and cuffing everyone in sight. Problem is, any of these that report a Level 10 Infraction when spotting people are obviously hacked. To make:

  • Screwdriver tool.png Use a Screwdriver on a Remote signaller.pngRemote Signaling Device
  • Combine with a Helmet.pngHelmet (Get these from Security)
  • Welderon.gifWeld them together
  • Add a Proximitysensor.pngProximity Sensor and a Robot Arm.
  • Toss in a StunBaton.gifStun Baton

Note that destroying a Securitron or Officer Beepsky with a melee weapon is all but impossible by yourself; striking them causes them to immediately stun and cuff you. If you work with another person you can get several hits in while it is cuffing the other person, which is often enough to destroy it outright.

ED209.png ED-209

Beepsky's bigger brother.

Has all of the abilities of a standard Securitron with the addition of a ranged attack. To make:

  • Use a Metal.png metal sheet on a Cyborg Endoskeleton to reinforce it.
  • Add two Robot Legs and a Armor.pngsecurity vest.
  • Welderon.gifWeld everything together
  • Add in a security Helmet.pngHelmet
  • Attach a Proximitysensor.pngProximity Sensor to the assembly
  • Insert wires
  • Add a Taser.pngTaser and attach it with a Screwdriver tool.pngScrewdriver.
  • Insert a Powercell.pngPower cell. Your own murder-robot is complete!

A emagged ED-209 fires deadly lasers AND attacks anyone on sight. Anyone emagging a ED-209 is advised to run like crazy.

Exosuits

Construction of exosuits are restricted by ID, so they are typically the product of roboticists and the Research Director. These can be tremendously helpful or tremendously annoying depending on who uses it. They take more work to make than robots and require special circuits, which are obtained through the Quartermaster or the Research and Development console.

The current list of exosuits is as follows.

Exosuit Construction

Ripley.png Ripley APLU

The Ripley APLU (Autonomous Power Loading Unit) is a slow moving, decently protected exosuit.

Generally, it can take down a Gygax because of the sheer power of the drill, but it does not make a good combat exosuit because it is slow and has no range. Best used against Spess carp invasions, blobs, Changelings, and for Revs (using it to breach high security areas)

To make:

  • Build all of the Ripley parts using the exosuit fabricator.
  • Build a Hydraulic Clamp and Drill
  • Attach all of the parts to the Ripley chassis (Except the Clamp and Drill)

Repair

  • Equip a WeldingHelmet.png welding helmet on your head.
    • Note: Be sure to remember this step or you could go blind!
  • Place a Welderon.gif welder in your hand, click on it while it's in your hand to light it, then click on the Exosuit repeatedly to repair it.

Removal of jammed user

If the driver of an exosuit is unconscious in his exosuit ; you are able to remove him/her by following a series of steps.

  • Make sure maintenance protocols are enabled.
  • Wrench
  • Crowbar
  • Multitool

Exosuit Equipment

Various tools and weapons can be attached to Exosuits, providng them with ability to perform different tasks. Exosuit Equipment is built by Exosuit Fabricator ("Exosuit Equipment" menu). To attach a tool or weapon, simply click with it on an Exosuit. Most Exosuits can hold no more than three equipment pieces.

Exosuit Equipment comes in several categories:

  • General: Can be attached to any exosuit.
  • Medical: Can only be attached to the Odysseus
  • Industrial: Can only be attached to Ripley and Hoverpod
  • Military: Can only be attached to Durand, Gygax, Marauder, and Phazon

Some equipments fit in more than one of the latter three categories. Where this is the case, that equipment can be used on any of the specifically named Exosuits in those categories.

There are some equipments that are also limited to single specific exosuits, those will be named in the category too where that's the case.

General Equipment

Passenger compartment - Energy Relay - Phoron Generator - ExoNuclear Reactor

Passenger Compartment

Construction Costs:
  • Steel: 10000
  • Gold: 2000
  • Silver: 3000
  • Glass: 2000
Wirelessly drains energy from any available power channel in area. The performance index is quite low.
Function:
  • Generates 12w of power per second, to recharge the battery
  • Drains 2-3Kw per from the nearest APC
Notes:
  • This will usually not be enough to stop power loss when moving around, but will greatly slow it. And the exosuit will usually recharge when standing still.
  • Still drains power from an APC even when the cell is fully charged.


Phoron Generator
Category: General Power Consumption: N/A Tesla.png
Tech Requirements:
  • Phoron Research: 2
  • Power Manipulation Technology: 2
  • Engineering Research: 2
Construction Costs:
  • Steel: 10000
  • Silver: 500
  • Glass: 1000
A Clean-Burning reactor that uses phoron as a fuel source to recharge the power cell. Terribly inefficient.
Function:
  • Burns Phoron Crystals inserted into it to produce power
    • To pickup a phoron crystal, activate the generator as the active module, then click a phoron crystal on the ground.
  • Consumes 500 cm^3 of phoron per second to charge up the power cell
    • Consumes 100 cm^3 of phoron per second instead, when the power cell is full. Does not auto deactivate.
    • Each Phoron crystal contains 2000cm^3 of phoron, and so will run the generator for 4 seconds per sheet.
  • While running, produces 20w of power per second.
Notes:
  • This generator consumes phoron rapidly, and is only really useful for mining, where you have access to an abundant supply of phoron sheets.

  • Glass: 1000

Function:

  • Burns Uranium Sheets inserted into it to produce power
    • To pickup a Uranium sheet, activate the generator as the active module, then click a phoron sheet on the ground.
  • Consumes 30 cm^3 of Uranium per second to charge up the power cell
    • Consumes 10 cm^3 of Uranium per second instead, when the power cell is full. Does not auto deactivate.
    • Each Uranium sheet contains 2000cm^3 of Uranium, and so will run the generator for 66 seconds per sheet.
  • While running, produces 20w of power per second.
  • Irradiates everyone nearby while running, 0.9 radiation per second.
    • This affects people inside the exosuit too, making it extremely dangerous to use
Notes:
  • Wear radiation-proof gear when piloting an exosuit with this module.
  • It can be useful as a weapon to irradiate people around you that you don't like
