The aesthetic nose is an artificial body part that replaces the organic nose and improves the beauty of the implanted pawn.

Acquisition

Aesthetic noses can be crafted at a Fabrication bench once the Flesh shaping research project has been completed. The required techprint can be obtained either by trade or completing quests for the Empire. They require Plasteel 10 Plasteel, Advanced component 2 Advanced components, 26,000 ticks (7.22 mins) of work, and a Crafting skill of 8.

The required techprint can be obtained either by trade or completing quests for the Empire. The part itself can be obtained by trade, quests or found on raiders and visitors.

Summary

An aesthetic nose replaces the pawn's biological nose. The aesthetic nose increases a pawn's beauty by +1, which increases the pawn's market value, and also increases other pawn's opinion of them by +20. Note that all pawn beauty modifiers are additive and that a net change in pawn beauty above +2 or below -2 will have no further effect. See pawn beauty for more details.

It can be used to replace a destroyed or missing nose, removing the "disfigured" penalty for missing a nose.

The aesthetic nose does not add any stat offsets to the pawn other than beauty. It cannot be used at the same time as a gastro-analyzer.

Analysis

The aesthetic nose both improves the beauty of the pawn and replaces a missing nose. Thus, it is useful for social harmony by keeping opinions high, both by the +20 of having +1 beauty but also by avoiding the "disfigured" opinion penalty a missing nose creates. This bonus and removal of a malus can be also help couple up a particular pawn or keep an existing couple together and happy by increasing their opinion of each other.

It can also be particularly useful to compensate for reduced beauty: it can cancel out the opinion malus from the ugly trait or the beauty reduction from the Content added by the Royalty DLC armorskin gland implant. When combined with the Content added by the Royalty DLC aesthetic shaper, they can compensate for the opinion malus from the staggeringly ugly trait or the beauty reduction from the Content added by the Royalty DLC stoneskin gland implant.

The gastro-analyzer and aesthetic nose cannot be installed on the same pawn.

Gastro-analyzer is an implant INTO the nose, while aesthetic nose REPLACES the nose. You can't install a gastro analyzer into a aesthetic nose; it's one or the other.

This is the only part incompatibility meaning, besides wealth, there is no reason not to install this part on non-cooking pawns. However its small effect also make doing so a low priority.

There are conflicting reports that beauty improves trade prices, but these are currently unconfirmed.

Increasing a pawn's beauty above 2 seems to have no additional effect on opinion. For example, a beautiful pawn will have a +40 opinion boost, with or without the aesthetic nose being installed, despite the pawn's beauty being 3 with the implant, which should result in a +60 opinion bonus otherwise. The same restriction also applies to the Content added by the Royalty DLC aesthetic shaper. Also keep in mind that the opinion bonus is completely disregarded if the pawn is disfigured (e.g. due to injury on the eyes or ears). Beauty also never affects pawns who have the Kind or Psychopath traits.
