During this timeframe, you can repair it to convert it to your side - and do this infinite amount of times, technically making the droid immortal. Repair 3 for Maintenance droid, 4 for Security Droid, and 5 for Assault droid (and 50 nanites) required at the moment, the repairs should be reasonably difficult.requires SS2tool patched install of SS2 (NewDark v2.48+, NVscript loaded), can be activated/deactivated mid game, load with the highest priority.Attachments (newest on top) SS2_Droid_Immortality_1.01.7z SS2_Droid_Immortality_1.01.7z SS2_Droid_Immortality_1.01.7z90 KB, 464 downloads fixbot.jpg fixbot.jpg fixbot.jpg242 KB, 1920 x 1200 px Last Edit: 09.

  • #1 Report Quote Reply 08. October 2017, 20:10:40 6428d888cad4aThanks for this, mate. When you say "assign it the highest priority.", you mean of course that it must be above both Repairman and Turret Fixer?6428d888caf20voodoo47

October 2017, 20:14:20 6428d888caf92it actually doesn't matter, all that needs to be avoided are crazy ideas like sticking it lower than SCP. also, turret fixer is now included in the Repairman (1.01+), if you still have the standalone test version, you should get rid of it.

March 2018, 20:47:20 6428d888cb278i justed wanted to say thank you for this mod.. back in 1998 when i've played system shock 2 for the first time i expected those security-droids to be hackable/repairable, i always wondered why it wasn't implemented.. was it due to time constraints or didn't they plan that at all? thank you very much anyways, it feels much much more complete now Last Edit: 12.

It might be a good idea to put that information in the OP in case anyone else finds it interesting. Thanks for the info!6428d888cbc17GuyFawkesGaming

  • #9 Report Quote Reply 02. April 2018, 23:07:03 6428d888cbc7ePretty cool, you brought one of my favorite things about BioShock (more things to hack) to System Shock 2. I feel it would be cooler though if you were able to hack them without blowing them up first, via Hack skill, as an option as well.I also think I would be a cool concept if you could hack Protocol Droids too, though given their method of attack it should only work with the Hack skill and not the Repair skill after the fact. This should also mean they'd require a lower Hack skill (3 sounds fair) given they wouldn't be immortal like the other droids.6428d888cbd50voodoo47

  • #11 Report Quote Reply 03. April 2018, 08:15:06 6428d888cc0bcI still think, as this is repair+rewire+rewrite, it should also require a minimal Hacking skill alongside the Repair skill.For example:Mainenance droid: Repair 3 & Hacking 1Security droid: Repair 4 & Hacking 2Assault droid: Repair 5 & Hacking 36428d888cc34fvoodoo47

  • #13 Report Quote Reply 03. April 2018, 18:19:31 6428d888cc57aI think you're misunderstanding, the Hack skill can be used to avoid destroying the droids first. Just sneak up on them and you're golden. However if they do get destroyed then the Repair is employed. The droids are not immortal if just hack is used, much like the turrets with the Repairman mod.The idea for the Protocol Droid was the it can only be hacked and isn't immortal due to it's attack method; there's nothing left to repair afterwards. This makes this particular droid arguably less useful which is why I mentioned that if done the hack skill requirement should be low. Even so I can see a Protocol Droid suicide bombing some Hybrids useful in certain situations.6428d888cc663voodoo47

  • #14 Report Quote Reply 03. April 2018, 18:35:57 6428d888cc6adI understand - what I'm saying here is that hack is not part of the equation on purpose, as the aim of this mod is to make repair more useful.but maybe I'll make the bot hackablility into another minimod - I'm thinking bots hackable but only if immobilized by the stasis field generator first. should be interesting enough.6428d888cc982sarge945

  • #20 Report Quote Reply 01. May 2018, 04:30:35 6428d888ccf3fIs it normal for disposable maintenance tools to not work on the droids? Also I've progressed much further in the game, I really do like that the droids and turrets can now be repaired but feel that their damage output and resistance become negligible in later stages of the game that repairing them becomes a chore.I do have an idea but not sure if NewDark scripting will allow it. In Bioshock 2, your hacked security can be upgraded by getting a "blue zone" during hacking. While System Shock 2 obviously doesn't have "blue zones" you could allow security devices to be modified much the same as weapons. In fact, since the Modification skill isn't very useful in it's self this could be a good way to increase it's use as well; kill to birds with one stone (assuming NewDarks script engine allows this).6428d888ccfe7voodoo47

  • #21 Report Quote Reply 01. May 2018, 07:04:26 6428d888cd033yeah, the droids are not maintainable at this point. should be possible to add it though - same goes for modify, but no idea whether it can be done in some clean way (meaning without a trillion of extra metaprops).6428d888cd2a7unn_atropos
