Bionic eye

An advanced artificial eye. With its biogel nerve-link, internal signal pre-processor, and wide-spectrum sensors, it is better than a biological eye in almost every way. A lattice-dust healing system allows it to recover from damage.

A Bionic eye is an artificial eye that can replace a natural one through implant surgery. Unlike their natural counterparts, bionic eyes do not scar. They have 125% efficiency, which results in a 25% improvement to the colonist's sight if two are installed.Since the game gives a greater weighting on the more capable part when calculating sight, with it contributing to 75% of a pawn's sight capability, installing a single bionic eye increases sight by 18.75%, and a second increases it by 6.25% to the expected 125%.

Acquistion

Bionic eyes can be crafted at a fabrication bench for 15 plasteel and 4 advanced components or purchased from traders. Installing a bionic eye requires 3 medicine.

They require a crafting skill of 8.

Summary

Installing requires 2,500 ticks (41.67 secs) of work, and a Medical skill of 5.

Analysis

Bionic eyes can be useful for gunners or snipers who will shoot enemies from a distance as a boost to sight can increase accuracy. Bionic eyes can also be used to "cure" cataracts in aged colonists.

As with all bionics, it will give a mood buff to anyone with the Body modder trait and a heavy penalty to anyone with the Body purist trait.
