Genetich Phenotype Adjustment listed in book without ESS cost, price, or availiblity. Could someone provide this information, I read at dumpshock that it is in some copies of the Book, si I guess it could help out the community by providing this information?

Thanks for taking the time to look it up in advance and have a good day.

Oops, nvm that last post.  I thought you were asking about Genetic Optimization.  Metaposeur isn't listed in my copy either.
 :-[

At best, it would be .2 essence, though I can see it costing more.  Not sure how to handle this one.  Maybe work it out with your GM or just go with 0.2 ESS.

I can see only .2 if say you were going from human to elf (or vice versa).  Or from human to Ork (or vice versa), but maybe up it a slight amount for anything more extreme.

(Dwarf to Troll, Troll to Elf, etc... might cost .3 or more)

Thanks for trying. I am not worried about for game purpose, I just hoped that someone could take a Min. to post it so there was a resource for the community. It is out there; just needs the right book (which is really silly) Take care community and have a good night/day pending your area.

Phenotype Adjustments ~ Treatment Time ~ Essence ~ Availability ~ Cost
Phenotypic Alteration ~ 2–6 weeks ~ 0.1–0.2+ ~ 8 ~ 40,000¥+

It's right there.  Not really a conclusive thing though.  Basically GM decision all across the board.
I mean, making a Sasquatch look like an Elf is going to take a good bit of doing...

Quote from: Augmentation, p. 89
Phenotypic Alteration
     Phenotypic alteration can create virtually any change to the body within the limits of metahuman norm. This treatment can elongate limbs, change skin tone or color, add horns, modify hair, change overall build, and so forth. The limits are left to the gamemaster’s judgment, but a good guideline is to disallow obviously inhuman changes such as extra limbs, non-metahuman sensory organs, non-metahuman features or anything more fanciful. Specific changes may be incompatible with organ replacements such as cyberlimbs, cybereyes, bioware skin, or cosmetic modifications.
     The following changes are common Phenotypic Alterations.
     Ethnicity Alternation: This treatment can achieve complete or partial ethnic alteration of ethnic characteristics from one to another, both physically and genetically.

Ethnicity Alteration4 weeks0.2840,000¥

Ethnicity Alteration is changing from "racial" type to another, e.g. white to asian. I'd probably make Metaposeur around double the EA, since EA is double Print Removal. So, 8 weeks, 0.4 Essence, 12 Availability and 75,000¥.
