Droid Misc Item Experimentation Mechanics

Items Affected

1. Droid Storage Compartment
2. Arakyd Probe Droid
3. Seeker Droid
4. Interplanetary Survey Droid

Experimentation Lines

1. Experimental Quality
2. Experimental Count
3. Experimental Effectiveness

The Arakyd Probe Droid, Seeker Droid, and Interplanetary Survey droid all require resources with 33% OQ, 33% UT, and 33% SR. The Arakyd Probe Droid and Seeker Droids have Durability and Quality listed as experimentation fields, however neither field appears to have an effect on the end result.

Interplanetary Survey Droids have Durability, Quality, and Count as the listed experimentation fields. Only Count and Quality appear to affect the final product. Quality experimentation reduces the amount of time that it takes for the droid to report back and the Charge experimentation increases the number of uses of the ISD. ISDs benefit highly from being a 12 point crafter.

Droid Storage Compartments require 50% OQ and 50% CD. If you are going to use Droid Storage Compartments in the different variety of Kits, experimentation and quality do not matter. If the Droid Storage Compartments are going to be used in a Private Crafting Station, then you will want to have the highest quality resources and experiment the Effectiveness line as fully as you can. Every ounce of success on the DSCs will increase the Function Rating of a Private Crafting Station.

Special Notes:

Seeker Droids and Arakyd Probe Droids do not have an experimention for their quantity. Their use values are preset. The uses for each item are as follows:

Seeker Droid: 10 uses per Seeker

Arakyd Probe Droid: 5 uses per Probe Droid.

General Item Attributes

These attributes can appear on any of these crafted items.

Variation Of:

This attribute spawns on any item that has had its base type name changed. For player crafted items this type change occurs when the player renames the item from the default given one. The name change can occur automatically as the player chooses a particular style for the item during the customization process or by manually renaming the item in the name field. After changing the name the item now indicates that it is a variation of the specific type that it originated as.

For more information about the Variation Of attribute, see General Item Mechanics

Serial Number:

This attribute only appears on crafted items. This represents the alphanumeric code given to the item.

See General Item Mechanics, Using Schematics and General Crafting Mechanics for more information about Serial numbers

Item Attributes

Droid Count: (Quantity:)

Interplanetary Survey Droids - The Droid Count attribute indicates the number of uses that the item has before expiring. Experimenting in the Experimental Count line will increase this value. (Note: In the NGE Droid Count appears to have been changed to Quantity)

Mechanism Quality

Interplanetary Survey Droids - The Mechanism Quality attribute for Interplanetary Survey Droids factors into the total duration before the droid will report the resource location to the player. Having a higher Mechanism Quality rating will decrease the time for the reports. Experimentating in the Experimental Quality line will increase the Mechanism Quality rating. For more information about calculating the report duration, see Using Interplanetary Survey Droids


Droid Storage Compartment - The Quality attribute for Droid Storage Compartments factors into the Functionality Rating of crafting stations. Having a higher Quality value increases the Functionality Rating of the station. Experimenting on the Experimental Effectiveness line will increase the Quality attribute.
