"Overflow =Body + Augmentation bonuses"

What does "Augmentation bonuses" refer to?


Also, why would anyone want to increase their overflow boxes
if you auto die when your overflow damage exceeds your Body?

The Will to Live Quality adds Damage Overflow Boxes, and those extra Overflow boxes represent being able to take more Overflow damage without dying: so instead of dying if your overflow damage exceeds (Body), you die if your overflow damage exceeds (Body + bonus overflow).

Okay, but what about Augmentation bonuses?

Is this a +1 for every Augmentation you have, or only if a specific augmentation says it adds overflow boxes?

I suspect it's a mistake, and that +Augmentation Bonuses line should be in the Physical Monitor line, where cyberlimbs actually add boxes.

How do cyber limbs add Physical boxes?
Only if they add Body?

For each cyberlimb you get 1 extra physical box. Cyberlimbs, and cyberware for that matter, never adds Body. Only 1 permanent augmentation increasing Body exists, namely Suprathyroid Gland.

No, each cyberlimbs (with partial limbs counting half) gives +1 regular Physical box. That's non-overflow. So someone with Body 5, Will to Live 3 and 2 cyberlimbs will have 8+(5/2, round up = 3) + 2 = 13 Physical Condition Monitor Boxes, and another 5+3 = 8 Physical Condition Overflow Boxes, meaning they'd need to take a total of 13 Physical Damage (or whatever fills the Stun track) to lose consciousness, and 13+8+1 = 22 Physical Damage to die.

Which is why I noted it seems like a mistake and it should be in a different line. There are NO augmentations boosting Physical Condition Overflow Boxes. There is 1 kind of augmentation boosting the Physical Condition Monitor Boxes.
