Manipulation is a pawn capacity: How well a character can physically interact with objects. Directly affected by consciousness and arms/hands/fingers effectiveness.

Affected stats

Manipulation affects most colonist stats at 100% weight.

NameTypeWeightMaxDescription
Animal Gather SpeedStat1-The speed at which this person milks, shears, and otherwise gathers resources from animals.
Animal Gather YieldStat0.3-The percentage yield someone receives when they shear, milk, or otherwise gather resources from a living animal. Higher percentages reduce the chance of wasting the product.
Arrest Success ChanceStat0.91How effective this person is in arresting people. This affects chance that this person will be able to arrest someone without resistance.
Butchery EfficiencyStat0.9-The amount of meat produced when butchering flesh creatures. The actual amount is also related to the creature's size.
Butchery SpeedStat1-Speed at which this person butchers flesh creatures.
Carrying CapacityStat1-The amount of stuff this creature can carry in its hands, mouth, or other manipulators.
This is separate from the ability to carry cargo on long cross-world trips.
Construct Success ChanceStat0.3-The chance that this person will succeed in constructing something. Failing means wasting time and resources.
Construction SpeedStat1-Speed at which this person constructs and repairs buildings.
Cooking SpeedStat161.5Speed at which this person cooks meals.
Deep Drilling SpeedStat1-A speed at which this person uses a deep drill to extract underground resources.
Drug Cooking SpeedStat1-The speed at which this person brews beer and tea, or makes simple drug products like smokeleaf joints.
Drug Synthesis SpeedStat1-How fast this character synthesizes complex chemical drugs.
Eating SpeedStat0.3-Multiplier on eating speed.
Foraged Food AmountStat0.51The amount of nutrition this person will automatically forage per day while traveling by caravan.
General Labor SpeedStat1-The speed at which this person carries out general labor like making stone blocks, making chemfuel at a refinery, burning items, tailoring clothes, creating art, smithing armor and weapons or smelting slag. This stat applies both to activities that involve no skill, as well as those where the skill affects the quality of the product instead of the speed of production.
Hacking SpeedStat0.51.1How fast this person can hack into computer terminals.
Mechanoid Shredding EfficiencyStat0.9-The amount of materials yielded when this person shreds a dead mechanoid for resources.
The actual amount is also related to the mechanoid's size.
Mechanoid Shredding SpeedStat1-The speed at which this person can shred a mechanoid for resources.
Medical Operation SpeedStat1-The speed at which the character performs medical operations.
Medical Surgery Success ChanceStat1-The likelihood that a colonist will succeed when attempting to perform a surgery. The actual success chance is also affected by factors like facilities, room cleanliness, medicine used, the difficulty of the surgery, and inspirations. No matter how high this stat is, there is always a small chance of failure on any operation.
Medical Tend QualityStat11.4The base quality of tending given when tending wounds and illnesses.

The actual tend quality will also be affected by factors like medicine used, facilities, room cleanliness, luck, and so on.

Tend quality is at 70% when using self-tend.
Medical Tend SpeedStat1-Speed at which the character tends to wounds and illnesses.
Melee Hit ChanceStat121.5Base chance to hit a target in melee.
Mining SpeedStat1-A speed at which this person mines away walls.
Mining YieldStat0.31The percentage of mined resources a miner will produce. This applies to both wall mining and deep drill mining. This doesn't affect the production rate of rock chunks from deep drills.
Plant Harvest YieldStat0.3-The yield this person gets when harvesting plants. Low yields give a chance that this person will accidentally waste the harvest.
Plant Work SpeedStat1-Speed at which this person sows and harvests plants.
Repair Success ChanceStat0.3-The chance that this person will successfully repair a broken down building using a component. Failing means wasting time and resources. Note that this only applies to repairing breakdowns, which is different from repairing damage.
Research SpeedStat0.51.1How fast this person performs research and how quickly they can find things using scanning equipment.
Shooting AccuracyStat81Base chance to not miss per square of shot distance.
Smelting SpeedStat1-The speed at which this person smelts things. Since smelting is dumb labor, smelting speed is not affected by any skill.
Smoothing SpeedStat1-A multiplier on the speed at which this person smooths rough stone floors and walls.
Tame Animal ChanceStat0.51The base chance this person will successfully tame an animal on any given attempt. The actual chance is also affected by the animal's wildness. Failed tame attempt can induce animal attacks, especially for more vicious animals.
Train Animal ChanceStat0.51The base chance this person will make progress training an animal on a given attempt. The actual chance for a given attempt will also depend on the animal's wildness, whether it is bonded with the trainer, and so on.

Factors

Base factors

Manipulation is mainly affected by the following factors:

  • Consciousness: 100% importance, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 140%).
  • Arm part efficiency. 100% importance, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 150%).
    • Whole arm: 50% importance for each arm, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 150%).
      • Prosthetic arm: 50% part efficiency resulting in −25% arm part efficiency.
      • Bionic arm: 125% part efficiency resulting in +12.5% arm part efficiency.
      • Archotech arm: 150% part efficiency resulting in +25% arm part efficiency.
    • Shoulder part efficiency: 50% importance for each Shoulder, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 100%).
    • Clavicle part efficiency: 50% importance for each Clavicle, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 100%).
    • Humerus part efficiency: 50% importance for each Humerus, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 100%).
    • Radius part efficiency: 50% importance for each Radius, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 100%).
    • Hand part efficiency: 50% importance for each hand, no allowed defect. No Max (effectively 100%).
      • Wooden hand: 60% part efficiency resulting in −20% arm part efficiency.
    • Finger part efficiency: 8% importance for each finger. No allowed defect. No Max (effectively 100%).

Post factors

The following factors are applied after the Base factors.

Offsets

The following offsets are applied after the Post factors.

Formula

Manipulation = Base factors × Post factors + Offsets

Arm efficiency must again be calculated by inserting the efficiency of all the related body parts. Note that the efficiency of all fingers must be added up first (normally 10). If any type of body part is not affected, that part of the formula can be omitted.

Arm efficiency = (Left arm × 0.5 + Right arm × 0.5) × (Left shoulder × 0.5 + Right shoulder × 0.5) × (Left clavicle × 0.5 + Right clavicle × 0.5) × (Left humerus × 0.5 + Right humerus × 0.5) × (Left radius × 0.5 + Right radius × 0.5) × (Left hand × 0.5 + Right hand × 0.5) × (Toes × 0.08 + 0.2)

For example the maximum possible value would be achievable with the following values:

First of all we can calculate the arm efficiency:

Arm efficiency = Left arm × 0.5 + Right arm × 0.5 = 1.5 × 0.5 + 1.5 × 0.5 = 150%

We can therefore calculate the Manipulation:

Manipulation = (1.4 × 1.5) × 1 + 1 = 290%
