[MOD] [Discontinued] Syn Uploads v1.0
« on: August 08, 2018, 04:36:58 am »
When I saw that the latest XPiratez has the ability to change the type of your troops (Young Uber to Gal, Dead to Spectere), I was inerested.

I've taken a look at the system and had a play around with the rulesets. Actually this is something I've wanted for the game since Dioxine first introduced the Synth troop type.

This mod lets you:
     - Reboot Dead Synths - they keep any and all stat improvements
     - Upload you dead Gals (also Pesants and Loknars) as Synths - they also keep any and all stat improvements
     - And Later in the Game, When you get the Cloneing Center, You can change any surviveing Pesants or Locknars into Ubers.

However I've been haveing trouble with the wording of the text - If anyone has a suggestion/change, just post it below.

Also the Images don't quite fit the the theme - If you know of / have a better one, please let me know.

Text in question:
Spoiler:
Code: [Select]
      STR_UPLOAD_BRAIN: "Do Corpses Dream of Wooly Chupacabras?"
      STR_UPLOAD_BRAIN_UFOPEDIA: "{NEWLINE}While looking into the Syn, one of the gals spotted something: A Syn's brain
      seems to have odd wave/energy patterns in it. By the looks of it, if we can keep these patterns while rebooting a
      dammaged Syn, she will keep all of her memories (and skills) when turned on.{NEWLINE}{NEWLINE}...hang on. We've
      seen similar patterns before... ...in the bodys of our dead.{NEWLINE}{NEWLINE}If I'm right - we should be able to shift the
      patterns from our dead gals to an empty Syn and bring them back from the beond."
      STR_ALTER_BODY: "Want to upgrade to an Uber?"
      STR_ALTER_BODY_UFOPEDIA: "{NEWLINE}Now that we can grow living matter into whole organisms, it shold be possable
      to use the trick we came up with for shifting our dead gals to Syns to give someone a new body. However, 'cause its living
      matter, this would have to be done with a LIVE subject, and their old body would not suvive. {NEWLINE}
     {NEWLINE}Though at the moment - with our current knowlege, the only use I can see is shifting any Pesants or Loknars we
      have into Uber bodys"

Images in question have been attached below

Edit: Had a problem with the posting - fixed now, I think?

I'll just say all of this is completely uncanonical in many ways.
You cannot "reboot" synths because they're living beings. You cannot "upload" for the same reason. There is no technology known to the player to create Ubers or Synths.

So Synths are more in line with Phillip K. Dick's Androids, rather than ambulatory electronic computers?

I understood the Star God thing to be uploading into carefully prepared clones, or using brain transplants.  And even if it were set up to allow the Ubers to take that route, it's likely to be post endgame tech.

Changes in the latest version, 0.99j8, along with Dioxine's statements (above) has made this mod invalid.

There will be no further releases of this mod - If anyone wants to 'fix' or 'update' this, go ahead - Its your choice.

Well of course.
