  • Looking great so far - I can't wait to be able to get in game :)

    On implants, is it a sorta "you want all of this and the best you can get" or will there be a trade off to it so you pick and choose what implants, if any, you want to have?

    Also everything so far seems to be replacement parts. Will there be more exotic things, such as (to use a classic example - Neuromancer) Molly's finger razors or Peter's holographic projector implants?

    Having implants will be a staple of character gear that will be needed to bring them up to maximum potential. We are also toying with the idea to have implants change appearance in the same way that gear does, which will add a whole way of changing the look of your guy. With this genre...there is no limit to how crazy or weird something can be.

    Players will need to go to a "chop shop" where a blackmarket implant tech will do the work for you, for a small fee of course.

  • By small fee, do you mean some crazy price only the rich can afford or is it something anyone could buy?

    As with anything in business, it depends on the quality and complexity of the job at hand. Low quality implants will be the cheapest and quickest implants to put in, while the more complex and archaic ones will be more.

  • Are you doing an implant system similar to what Anarchy Online offers or are you going about it with classic Cyberpunk 2020 style chipsets, hardware, and accouterments?

    Most implants are designed to boost a players bodily effectiveness in one form or another. Cybernetics are designed to mimic but improve heavily on the natural design of a persons organs. Cybernetic lungs for example will have a much higher absorption and retention rate for oxygen intake, meaning the player will be able to exert themselves for a much longer period of time.

    Brain implants as another example can function in many advanced ways, such as increasing a persons ability to process information intake to make the world seem like its going in slow motion, allowing them to take actions far quicker than normal.

  • Will there be diminishing returns on implants (ie cyberpsychosis?) or will they act more like semi-permanent stat increases or buffs? I would imagine there would be a limit as to how much cybernetic upgrades one's system could take. You would have to choose between that neuro-net reflex boost or the neural processing upgrade for calculating capabilities...
