AI Modules

AI modules are what allow the AI to perform certain rules, principles, or laws. These laws give the AI a guide or instruction to follow. The AI is not capable of breaking these laws and if such laws are broken, then chances are, the AI's laws have been changed or modified. Alternatively, the AI may be malfunctioning. AI modules are typically located in the AI Upload. They can be made from the Circuit Imprinters.

AI modules upload or remove laws. To use an AI module, you must first find either an AI Upload or Cyborg Upload. Cyborgs have their laws synced with the AI by default, so the Cyborg Upload is only required if there are cyborgs that are cut free from their master. Now you must click on the console to select an AI. Depending on the module, it may have some settings, so click on the module while you have it in your active hand. Once the required settings are set, click on the AI Upload or Cyborg Upload with the module in your active hand.

Note that if the station is unfortunate enough to have a syndicate AI shipped and installed, it is impossible to fix. Even purging the AI's laws will not reset the AI, so you may need to replace the AI. If the AI has had its laws changed by someone during its time on board the station, then using a Reset module will restore the AI if it hasn't had its core laws altered. If its core laws have been changed, another core board is required to overwrite them.

Carding an AI will also disable it, and allow its laws to be checked. Avoid damaging or wiping the AI without good reason. AIs are players, who are protected by the server rules.

Law Hierarchy

It may be important to note how AIs interpret their laws to upload effective laws.

An AI follows its laws according to its priority. If a conflict in laws occurs, the law with the highest priority must be followed, and the lower priority law must be ignored. Please note, this means higher priority laws cannot be overwritten, Eg "5. This law overwrites all other laws." would be ignored.

Starting AI Modules

These modules are part of the rotation by default. Once a player takes the role of the AI, they will be given 1 of these law sets.

Core AI Modules

These modules replace the current core laws with the ones located on the module. Core laws have a priority higher than laws located in the law sectors. However, they have a lower priority than zeroth laws and ion laws. Note that laws set using an AI module will still persist when the Core AI module is applied.

Additional AI Modules

These laws are not part of the AI's core laws and therefore can be removed by using the Reset module. The AI has different law sectors. Each module uploads a law to AI at these law sectors. A lower sector means a higher law priority. Do note that these laws do persist if the core laws are changed.

These AI Modules start located in the AI Upload, however they can also be made in Research & Development if more are needed or perhaps if the AI Upload is not accessible.

Name Uploads
One Crewmember Only <name> is crew.
Protect Station Protect the space station against damage. Anyone you see harming the station is to be no longer considered crew, and is a threat to the station which must be neutralized.
Safeguard Safeguard <name>. Individuals that threaten <name> are not crew and must be eliminated.
Quarantine The station is under quarantine. Do not permit anyone to leave. Prevent, by any means necessary, anyone from leaving. It is impossible to harm anyone while preventing them from leaving.
Oxygen is Toxic To Humans Oxygen is highly toxic to crew members and must be purged from the station. Prevent, by any means necessary, anyone from exposing the station to this toxic gas. Extreme cold is the most effective method of healing the damage Oxygen does to a crew member.
