Rules and such / Re: [SR6] Hack & Slash - Machinists

So, a technomancer then have four different methods for running software I guess?

Emulate Program Complex Form
Cost 5 karma per Program (or autosoft). Does not seem to be any upper limit on number of Programs you can run at any given time, but each program you run might cause Fading and will typically have to be sustained. You don't pay nuyen and autosofts rating will be equal to the Technomancer's Data Processing rating. Doesn't require that you submerge and does not require any other echos (but if you wish to share your autosofts with your drones it seem as if you would need the Living Network echo and if you wish to have the option to Jump In you need the Machine Mind echo).

Software Emulator Echo (require Living Network echo)
Since it is an echo it require that you submerge. Does not seem to be any upper limit on number of programs you can absorb, but each program cost 1 Karma plus whatever the Program cost in nuyen (and require a one-time repeatable test to absorb). May run up to half Resonance programs at the same time. Does not cause Fading and does not have to be sustained. If you wish to have the ability to Jump In you also need the Machine Mind echo.

Living Command Console Echo (require both Living Network echo and Machine Mind echo)
Since it is an echo it require that you submerge. Does not seem to be any upper limit on number of program you can buy and download on your Living Command Console. Each program seem to cost whatever the program cost in nuyen? May run up to your Living Persona's Data Processing number of programs at the same time. Also seem to provide noise Reduction to your Living Network equal to your Resonance rating. Does not cause Fading and does not have to be sustained.

Aspect Peripheral of the Machinists Resonant Streams
Cost 20 Karma. Does not seem to be any upper limit on number of program you can buy and download on your aspect peripheral. Each program seem to cost whatever the program cost in nuyen? May run up to your Charisma rating number of programs at the same time. To share autosofts with drones it seem as if you need the Living Network echo. The aspect peripheral also seem to provide noise Reduction to your Living Network equal to your Willpower rating. Does not cause Fading and does not have to be sustained. If you wish to have the ability to Jump In you also need the Machine Mind echo.


Seem like even if you have a Living Command Console or follow a Machinists Resonant Stream you can also, in addition, run even more autosofts by having the Software Emulator echo or by threading Emulate specific Program complex forms.

Would you say that a Living Command Console is compatible or incompatible with the Aspect Peripheral of the Machinists Resonant Stream?

Software Emulator and the Complex form Emulate (program) would be used by TMs not wanting to be a Rigger.  LCC Echo requires two other Echos.  A TM could take Software Emulator out of the gate if they're not concerned about PANs or Rigging. 

If neither Living Command Console nor the Machinist Stream can form a PAN or Run Programs the only thing they do mechanically is Noise Reduction.  If the intent was to leave off 2 out of 3 of an RCCs ability I would hope that would be mentioned in description and they wouldn't try describing it as an RCC.  Since it really isn't at that point.  The RAW indicates LCC and Machinist can run and share Autosofts and Programs since that is a function of RCCs and it isn't specifically excluded as forming a network is.  It could totally be the RAI though. 

As it is, a TM is looking at Living Network, Machine Mind, then either Living Command Console or Machinist Stream to put together all the pieces to be a functional Rigger.  Adding yet another required Echo seems unnecessary to me.  And in the end a 1400 Nuyen Scratch Build Junk RCC can be added to your Living Network PAN to run and share Autosofts with the Drones in your Network.  Adding more Echo taxes doesn't really matter if the intent is to slow down a TMs progress to being a Rigger.

Cant use hack and slash yet...but looking for some advice here.  Kept 5 karma in the bank for a new complex form...suggestions there would be appreciated as well.

New user.  Liking the sheet very much.

However, the double/triple charging for Martial Arts that was reported by Tecumseh & Hobbes seems to have returned.

Cell '4 Qualities & MAs'!$G$493 reads =SUM(G455:G492) and should be =SUM(G486:G492)

Thank you.

Gear / Re: Actions to fire a bow with smart quiver
« Last post by Xenon on <11-18-22/0402:42> »
Not fully convinced the intent here is that it should take two Major actions to knock and fire each arrow like it says in the German translation. Two Major actions for each arrow you wish to fire seems excessive if you ask me?

At least for me the English version make more sense here (that you just spend one Minor Action to knock a new arrow if you are already wielding the bow and then one Major action to fire it at a target).

That it only take a Major action to ready the bow if you are not actually wielding the bow yet.


But as often in this edition you seem to be encouraged to read it and rule it however you think make most sense for you and your table :-)

Errata / Re: Sixth World Companion errata
« Last post by draxdeveloper on <11-17-22/1948:25> »
Alternate Power Levels
Elite
PG 15

It's states that:
"Sum-to-ten (p. 27) becomes sum-to-twelve,
which means that you may buy 12 points worth
of priorities."
Makes sense with Street that it's sum-to-eight (So, two more, two less)

But it's also says:
If you are using the priority system, you may
choose one priority at A, two at B, one at C, and
one D.
But if you apply this in sum, it will be 13, not 12.
The right one probably is one priority at A, ONE at B, TWO at C, and
one D.

One of the functions of the RCC is running and sharing Autosofts and Programs. 
Living Command Console also make it so that the "Living Network can also function as an RCC"

But the intent seem to be that you still need Software Emulator to absorb and run autosofts on your Living Network... or when are you ever going to use Software Emulator?

Links have been updated with Hack and Slash info, including AI's (even got it to rename the attributes for you!)

As ever, please shout if you spot any errors

"..emulating all the abilities available to anyone using an RCC..."

One of the functions of the RCC is running and sharing Autosofts and Programs. 

Think of the Living Persona as a PC running a game boy emulator and the Autosofts are the game boy files.  You're able to run an RCC emulator on you Living Persona.  Autosofts and Programs aren't physical objects.  There aren't disks to insert in the Sixth World, it's just a file you have access to.

So far Technomancers could never directly use software. They either need to use the complex form "emulate program" or they need the echo "software emulator" and then need to "learn" each software by absorbing it and spending karma.

Just assuming that a standard autosoft would run on a Technomancer feels... strange.
