IPCs no longer take pressure damage.(Kinda)
IPCs now need internals.(Kinda)
IPCs now have a organ called “Heat Sink”
New system for IPCs:
IPCs will naturally increase body temp
The heat sink organ will decrease body temp in accordance with the atmos surrounding it.
In low pressure environments the heat sink will not work as well and will not work at all in a vacuum.
Cooler air will cool down the IPC.
Hotter air will heat up the IPC.
When cold enough (<200 K) an IPC will gain speed bonuses and will gain 25% burn armor(taking their natural weakness down to 1.5 instead of 2.0 when cold.)
When hot enough(>350 K) an IPC will loose speed and take 3x burn damage.
At 400 K IPCs will start taking burn damage.
When in crit the heat sink will stop functioning, replacing the old IPC crit system.
Emergency heat sinks can be made(after IPC parts researched) and found in IPC emergency boxes that reduce the body heat of an IPC by 150K once.
Upgraded heat sinks:
Now a real reason to research IPC organs.
Bluespace heatsink: Effective at half the pressure that normal heatsinks are. Requires miniaturized bluespace and IPC organs.
Nullspace heatsink: Effective anywhere. Requires abductor tech and IPC organs.
