Mods (short for modifications) are tech that can be added to gear to improve its function or give it more abilities. Mods are specific to item type.
Adding more mods increases the cost of both adding further mods and maintenance.
These mods are widely applicable to a range of items and devices.
These mods can generally be applied to any item, but can only be learned by characters who have certain cultural prerequisite skills.
All energy weapons can have these mods applied to them, apart from the ones that include the word “heavy” in the title. Heavy abilities can only be delivered by large “Mega” size darts fired from Heavy Energy Weapons.
