Psylinks triggering body purists
i was doing a tribal game and used the anima tree to gain psylinks and one of my body purists got the 'body purist squeamish' thought.

This brings up a great point. Is there any way to surgically remove a psylink?
because psylinks are now not mechanical it shouldn't trigger body purists

No, that was removed.

A remnant from when it was basically a rod you stuck in your head pre-the latest patches. This will hopefully be changed soon.

They removed the ability to uninstall a psylink... thats just silly. It really makes body purist not worth having.

was there any reason to have them for late game anyway? for early game sure they are nice as the purist tends to stabilize the mood but at the point you can basically go and try augmenting everyone they start becoming a liability

Body Purists have always been one of the greatest liabilities for a healthy colony. Even before you get bionics and psychic powers for everyone, losing digits and limbs is pretty common for anyone engaging in fights. Putting any replacement parts on them to make them not useless drops their mood. They also get huge social penalties against anyone who does have body modifications, pushing them to start social fights much more often.
Body Purists are never worth having. It's a negative trait. It's one of the worst traits to have, actually.

For Psylink, maybe triggering the body purist squeemish thought is an oversight. The developer seems to be giving us an option (with the tribal anima tree) for a more natural psy ability.

Psylink shouldn't bother body purists as it is no longer considered a body augmentation. (And transhumanists also should not get a mood buff).
Just get a couple mods that allow you to harvest all the body parts and use them as replacement parts. Body purists don't mind being Frankenstein's monster, with a leg from one corpse, an arm from another, eyes from a third.... etc.
