For the aspiring Roboticist, this guide will explain the creation and maintenance of Cyborg, Bots, and Mechs.

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 all parts to queue beside the Cyborg option, and then click Process Queue in the right sidebar (with a recent update, please note that adding "all parts" will print four extra components that are only used for repair, not construction).
  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 Cyborg endoskeleton.png Cyborg Endoskeleton as a base.
    • The Cyborg Head will need 2x Flash.png Flash.
    • 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.

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 by placing their head on the operating table and following the same steps as above. You should probably apologize to them after putting their brain in an MMI, though.

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. Power cell.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. Power cell.png Reinsert the power cell by clicking on the cyborg.
  8. Crowbar.png Crowbar the panel shut.
  9. 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. Power cell.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. Power cell.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.

When finished, be sure to reinsert the power cell into the cyborg and close them back up with your crowbar.

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.

Resetting 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.

Cyborg Upgrades

There are several cyborg upgrade modules that can be printed from the prosthetics fabricator in Robotics, assuming sufficient research has been done beforehand. To apply an upgrade, open the cyborgs access panel and insert the upgrade inside it.

  • Emergency Restart Module
 The least expensive way to revive a cyborg that has fully died. After repairing sufficient damage to the cyborgs body, applying this upgrade will reactivate it.
  • Reclassification Board
 When applied, changes the cyborgs name to one chosen by the user. The name is modified by activating the upgrade module inhand.
  • Module Reset Board
 Removes the cyborgs current module, allowing it to reselect a new one.
  • VTEC Module
 Kicks in a cyborgs VTEC systems, allowing them to move faster.
  • Rapid Taser Cooling Module
 Increases the recharge rate of a security module cyborg's taser. Two can be applied before further ones will have no effect.
  • Mining Robot Jetpack
 Despite the name, can be applied to any type of cyborg. Gives the cyborg a CO2-filled jetpack.
  • Advanced Health Analyzer Module
 Gives the cyborg an advanced health analyzer. While it can be applied to any cyborg, it is of limited use to non-medical modules.
  • Scrambled Equipment Module
 Unlocks a cyborg module's hidden equipment, which is normally activated with an emag. These are universally either lethal or disabling weaponry.
  • Language Module
 Allows a cyborg to speak nearly any language, instead of only understanding them. Clerical and Service module cyborgs have this function by default.

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.

Synthmorphs

The Synthmorph is something the Roboticist may encounter as well. This is essentially a person inside a bipedal mechanical body. They may have been referred to as IPC in the past, short for Integrated Positronic Chassis, though not all favored this designation. Roboticists are not 'responsible' for these in the same way they are for Cyborgs, as Synthmorphs are effectively normal people with a different body. They may play doctor for them, however, as synthmorph repairs are within the robotics department domain.

Creating a Synthmorph

While you can assemble a synthmorph's body, putting a mind in it is a whole other matter. Moving a previously-lawed entity (cyborg, AI) into a synthmorph body typically requires paperwork to be completed. Assembling the body is fairly straight-forward however, assuming you have the materials:

Most of the work is done at the Bioprinter.png Prosthetics Fabricator.

  1. Ensure R&D has performed enough research to allow you to create prosthetic torsos, heads, and eyes. You may wish to re-sync the Prosthetics Fabricator to make sure you're up to date.
  2. Print all parts of a synthmorph, including torso, both hands and feet, both arms and legs, a head, and optical sensors. Make sure to select the manufacturer you want ahead of time. If you do not see the manufacturer you want, contact Cargo to order you blueprint discs.
  3. Place the torso onto a surgical table in robotics, and attach each limb one at a time, finishing with the head.
  4. Use a screwdriver, then a crowbar to open the head's maintenance panel and install the optical sensors into the head.
  5. At this time, you can also install a brain in an MMI or a Positronic Brain. Synthmorphs do not support having a normal organic brain.
  6. Use a crowbar to close the maintenance panel when done.
  7. Congratulations, you've given someone a new lease on life.

Prosthetic/Synthmorph Repair

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

To fix brute damage, target the specific area that requires fixing, and use a welding tool on the area.

To fix burn damage, use a cable coil on the damaged area to replace the melted wiring.

Internal Repairs

Sometimes the damage to a humanoid with prosthetics or a synthmorph may be severe enough to require internal repairs. This is akin to requiring surgery for an organic limb. Follow the steps below to perform these repairs.

  1. Have the subject lay flat on a table, preferably an operating table in the robotics lab.
  2. Use a screwdriver on the damaged limb to gain access to the maintenance panel.
  3. Use a crowbar to pry the panel open to gain access to the limb's internals.
  4. Apply either welding or cable coils as needed to the internals.
  5. Use the crowbar to shut the maintenance panel when done. It will latch back into place.

Removing Internal Organs

You might sometimes need to remove an organ from the body of a synth. The most common occurrence of this is removing a MMI or posibrain from a heavily damaged synth so it can be placed into the newly printed body. To remove any internal organ in a synth:

  1. Use a screwdriver and crowbar to open your patient up.
  2. Use a multitool on them, this will bring up a window asking you which organ you want to prepare for removal.
  3. Select the organ and hit okay, this will cause a progress bar to appear.
  4. Once that bar is filled, you'll be able to use a hemostat on the patient to bring up a window asking you which organ you want to remove.
  5. Select the organ you want and hit okay, then wait for the progress bar to finish like before. With the hemostat you might have to try more than once, but failing 'to grab something' doesn't damage the patient.
  6. With that, the organ should be out!

In A Pinch

Sometimes you might need to get repairs done urgently and lack the usual tools to do so, or perhaps have one that might help speed things along, two of which are:

Nanopaste

A nanite swarm in a bottle. Has ten uses and heals 20 burn damage and 20 brute damage if the patient is opened up properly. This healing applies to internal organs as well. If the patient isn't opened, it only does heals 10 brute and 10 burn damage and doesn't heal internal organs.

Screwdriver

If you lack nanopaste, the screwdriver can be used to repair internal organ damage with a 30% chance of failure which will damage the patient, so only use this if you lack nanopaste!

And remember: if you lack a surgery table, any old table will do. Using an ordinary table has a 34% chance of your surgery failing though, so do try to find a surgery table if possible.

NIF Surgeries for Synthmorphs

Sometimes you’ll get a synth in who either wants a NIF installed, or one taken out for repairs. The two surgeries you'll find yourself doing are:

NIF Installation

  1. Target the patient’s head and use a screwdriver.
  2. Use a crowbar to open their head up.
  3. Use the surgical drill to create a cavity.
  4. With the NIF in your active hand and the patient’s head still targeted, click the patient to place the NIF inside the cavity.
  5. Use a crowbar to close them up again.

Be sure to inform your patient about the after affects of the surgery before it's done. These effects can be seen here.

NIF Maintenance

  1. Target the patient’s head and use a screwdriver.
  2. Use a crowbar to open their head up.
  3. Use the hemostat to get the NIF out (may take more than one attempt).
  4. Repair the NIF.
  5. Use the surgical drill to recreate the cavity.
  6. With the NIF in your active hand and the patient’s head still targeted, click the patient to place the NIF inside the cavity.
  7. Use a crowbar to close them up again.

Resleeving a Synthmorph

Synths can be resleeved using the resleeving console next to the SynthFab 3000 machine. The SynthFab machine itself requires metal and glass to function (though it comes with an amount already provided) and the synth must have received a backup implant previously in the shift for their mind to be present in the database.

If both a body and mind backup are present, a roboticist can follow the Guide to Resleeving to resleeve the synth.

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 have a very limited selection of medicines by default: Tricordrazine for all damage, and Spaceaccilin for detected Viruses.

Combine the following ingredients in order:

  1. Start with an Empty SMed.png Medkit.
    • Note: Differently colored medkits will also change the resulting color of your Medibot.
  2. (Optional) Name the bot with a Pen.png pen.
  3. Add a Cyborg Right or Left Arm.
  4. Add a HealthHealthanalyzer.pngAnalyzer.
  5. Add a ProximityProximitysensor.pngSensor.
  6. (Optional) Add aBeaker.pngbeaker 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

  1. Watertank.png on a watertank, use:
  2. Prosthetic Right or Left Arm;
  3. Plant analyzer.png Plant analyser;
  4. Bucket.png Bucket;
  5. Minihoe.png 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, 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:

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:

A emagged ED-209 fires deadly lasers AND attacks anyone on sight.

Spiderbot

Spiderbots are temporary bodies for brains. They can carry around small items, zap things, move through vents and generally act like pests.

Combine the following:

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

Mechs

Construction of mechs 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 mechs is as follows.

Ripley APLU

Ripley.png
The Ripley APLU (Autonomous Power Loading Unit) is a slow moving, decently protected mech. Generally, it can take down a Gygax because of the sheer power of the drill, but it does not make a good combat mech 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:

The Ripley should be complete, to access it use your ID card on it. The codes on the system mean that you have to have access to those places on your ID to use the mech. Click finish, then right-click to enter.

Mech Equipment

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

Drill
The drill can completely destroy most objects (with the exception of reinforced walls) in a few seconds. Using the drill on someone will gib them in a few seconds. So don't do that unless you're a traitor.

When used for mining, targeted and two adjacent mineral deposits will be drilled. If Ripley exosuit is equipped with Hydraulic Clamp and has an Ore Box in cargo, all mined ore will be moved to Ore Box.
(Can be attached to: RIPLEY)

Diamond Drill
Essentially an upgraded drill. Isn't any stronger, but it is faster (all you need for mining really). Bug R&D to sync their servers and in no time mining can obliterate the asteroid (provided that they bring you diamonds first)
(Can be attached to: RIPLEY)

Drill
The drill can completely destroy most objects (with the exception of reinforced walls) in a few seconds. Using the drill on someone will gib them in a few seconds. So don't do that unless you're a traitor.

Currently only adminspawnable due to the high research level - don't bother, really. Or steal it from the Centcomm mechs. You know you want to just hijack the deathsquad shuttles after taking their IDs off their burnt corpses, charge out the doors with your stolen weapons in hand, hack your way through the multitudinous doors as more security rushes in with murder in mind and pulse cannons and power armour at hand, until you finally get to your prizes, the mech bay - only to steal the teleporters mounted on them and scarper back to the station to use them in the destructive analyser. You know it's what you want to do. Do it. Do it. Do it.)
(Can be attached to: Any mech)
