This mod adds extra challenge for bot usage. Bots sometimes wear down and need fixing. Broken bots will occasionally fall to the ground and need repair. They will be automatically marked for deconstruction and delivered via the logistic network. Set up assemblers to receive and service them and they'll be back in action in no time.

This mod supports 3 levels of difficulty. Easy is the default for normal mode and hard is the default for expensive mode.

  • In easy mode, bots merely require some time in an assembler to be reconditioned.
  • In medium difficulty, broken bots require some spare parts to be fixed.
  • In hard mode:
    Damaged bot disassembly -> Shell + robot control module (95%) + powercell (95%)
    Electronic circuit + gear -> robot control module
    Battery -> powercell
    Shell + robot control module + powercell + lube -> Fixed Bot.

Note: Difficulty is not locked at game start. Loading a game with a different difficulty selected will convert that save to that difficulty

Mods can adjust mean time between failures on a per-surface basis via the remote call documented at the top of the control.lua file.
