Should work fine with every other mod out there.

Relevant Mechanoid Surgery does pretty much what is said on the tin: make the 'mechanoid surgery success chance' stat relevant again!

In Beta 18, there's a multiplier on the operation bill for scyther blade removal that makes it impossible to fail. This means that it doesn't matter if Urist Mc. SuperBionicLevel20Crafting performed the blade removal, or if the guy in the thumbnail did the removal; it'd always be a success.

That completely trivialises the acquisition of scyther blades and therefore gain of silver, maybe other than the RNG element of whether the blades get damaged or not. That's not fun at all and imbalances the game.

This mod makes it so that scyther blade removal has a standard success rate multiplier like it did prior to Beta 18, so failure of removing scyther blades is possible again and what you see with the 'mechanoid surgery success chance' stat is what you get!

In terms of impact on the game's difficulty, this mod potentially makes the mid-game harder since you can't just have literally anybody who can craft just effortlessly remove scyther blades.


Marnador for their great RimWorld-style font!

As is standard with my mods: you may include this mod in a mod pack, and you may derive from this, but please inform me if you're doing so either through here or Ludeon Forums, and give credit where credit's due.

@jpinard - Scyther blade removal was removed in B19 since it messed up economy balance a fair bit.

I just found this mod as I was looking at your others and it got me thinking. Do you get to harvest scyther blades off scythers anymore in vanilla? I killed about 400 of them in my last game and didn't get a single blade, but I haven't played Rimworld in about a year. I don't have this mod installed, but it just made me wodner what's up.

@e_t_01 - much appreciated! But I don't really have the means to set anything up regarding that kinda stuff. Also, this won't see a B19 update since you can't de-blade scythers anymore.

And is this getting updated to B19?

Doesn't seems to work.

@carewolf Nope. They're vanilla.

Huh? When do you get scyther blades? Isnt that from another mod?

@Drizzly Those are very motivating words, thanks a lot! :)

Glad my mods are helping to improve your experience that little bit more!
