Title: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Triskavanski on (05:15:06/11-06-16)
Working on making a character who is an AI in an athroform drone, a ghost in the machine sort of speek. Trying to iron everything out with them though.. Get some armor etc.

Rain Forest got errata'd a long time ago.

Missions FAQ'd. If they're not using that ...
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Triskavanski on (13:03:18/11-06-16)
Okay, what about everything else then?
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Jack_Spade on (15:17:41/11-06-16)
I'd suggest getting a Sekretar as your body and add realistic features to that one.

I'm playing a character with this concept at the moment (Revenant in my sig). Therefore I'm a bit biased, but I can assure you, you want lots and lots of autosofts  ;)
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Triskavanski on (16:04:32/11-06-16)
I think part of the reason I did avoid them at first was the whole R on their body.  Which means you'd need to have a licence to have your body.. How do you end up dealing with that yourself?
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Jack_Spade on (16:11:36/11-06-16)
It's a full body prosthetic - get a Fake SIN and a License + at Realistic Features 4 it's unlikely someone realizes that you are a robot.  ;D
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Triskavanski on (18:53:05/11-06-16)
I see, perhaps. Though that would make them into a cyberzombie which could cause its own complications. What do you do for armor anyways?

I've got a technomancer who uses a ibot with some of the more fancy armors.

Eh? Just a very cybered person, or convincing drone.

Quote

That will fool anyone looking at the body (short of using a cyberware scanner or other more invasive checks), but you need WTLM to convince anyone you're actually human. (or that there's a human at the helm, if they aren't convinced it's human)

I have a very similar character who is a decker-turned-e-ghost. He pilots a Sekretar with realistic features.
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Triskavanski on (19:18:09/11-07-16)
I decided not to go with the bigger bot, due to how much more expensive everything would be, level 4 realistic features would cost like 80k.

Instead I picked up a second body, a little less upgraded but designed to help repair my main bot.

Myraid (https://1drv.ms/b/s!AuXYaRw4LGYIiWF2AHT3Q4YVH9Aw)

Trying to figure how to do certain things in herolab, Like making the limbs set up in such a way that they could be modular.

How do get the i-Doll's Pilot from three to six?
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Triskavanski on (08:06:57/11-09-16)
It looks like the armor is 6, the pilot is 0.

Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Jack_Spade on (08:56:09/11-09-16)
If you are looking for a good but cheap Anthro drone take a look at Hard Targets: The Sparing Drone is excellent value with high body and therefore much customization room while also being dirt cheap. Get rid of the pityfull armor and give it normal armor to wear and you are good to go.
Title: Re: AI Drone Wearer
Post by: Csjarrat on (08:02:36/01-28-17)
You can pay for a pilot upgrade to 4, get the designer quality for a boost to 5 and then use the optimisation boost to 6 iirc

P.156 Only AIs with the Pilot Origins quality may use autosofts in place of active skills, they also use their Depth in place of the Pilot rating of vehi-cles/drones they are running on.

Just wanted to point this out to Necro readers
