Electronics is in!

So, there’s finally something more to do with your electrical kits than electrocute gangers. The bare bones of Electronics is in, there are a few notable things missing which I’ll get to in a bit.

Here’s how it works:

  • Get some electrical components. These drop (primarily from Drones) when you have your electrical kit equipped.
  • Learn something about electronics. If all else fails, there are always books… where you’d expect to find books.
  • Go to the crafting screen from your inventory or click over from chemistry if you’re already into that.
  • The ‘recipes’ up top are circuits. This works totally differently from chemistry. Circuits won’t generally be learned from experimentation, more from books or other knowledge.
  • Down at the bottom you can upgrade devices using the circuits you’ve created.

Here’s what’s missing:

  • Computer stuff. As we don’t have hacking in yet, Electronics will grow in leaps and bounds once we get it in.
  • Cybernetics stuff. Same with hacking. You’ll see a lot more of this once we have cyberwear.

So, keep in mind Electronics is a growth industry. As of now, there are thirteen items that can be created through upgrades and some of the circuits are useful on their own.
