Peg legs are a artificial body part that replaces a pawn's leg. It is the worst kind of leg available, but is better than having a missing foot or leg.


Unlike most other prostheses, peg legs don't have a separate item form and the materials require no previous work to turn into a prosthesis before installation. Instead, when ordering a surgical operation on a pawn, Wood 1 Wood is consumed and the peg leg is added to the pawn. Notably, when removed the peg leg turns back into a wooden log.


Peg legs replace the user's entire organic leg. The peg leg has a part efficiency of 60%. This partially replaces the functionality of a normal leg - when coupled with the leg body part having a Moving importance of 50%, it results in restoring 30% moving per missing leg replaced, or a loss of 20% when replacing a healthy leg.

Moving, in turn, affects the following stats: Hunting Stealth, Melee Dodge Chance, Move Speed. This results in a directly proportional change to a pawn's move speed, and a change in melee dodge chance equivalent to losing 3.6 levels of Melee skill per leg replaced. Due to how the stat is fit to a post-process curve, this can result in the melee dodge chance dropping to 0% for pawns with skill under 9, when replacing one leg, or under 12 for both legs.

Each peg leg results in -10% character quality and thus a 10% reduction in the affected individual's pawn value.

As an artificial part, peg legs will give a mood buff to anyone with the Body modder trait, and a mood penalty to anyone with the Body purist trait.


Installing the part requires 1,500 ticks (25 secs) of work, Wood 1 wood, 2x medicine of herbal quality or better, and a Medical skill of 3.

Removing the part requires ? of work, 2x medicine of herbal quality or better, and a Medical skill of ?.

If the operation fails, the part has a chance[What Chance?] to be destroyed.


The bottom line is that while a peg leg is significantly better than having a missing, or otherwise inoperative, leg, its replacement with a modern prosthesis should be strongly considered, depending how much that colonist relies on movement to do their jobs. In cases where only the foot is missing, a wooden foot will restore more mobility with only half the Moving penalty and the exact same material and research requirements.
