Extra Info:
[Implant] - night vision

Nerve-packed retina scatters incoming radiation and bends light so the irises turn jade.

You gain the toggleable ability to see in the dark.

Target body parts: Face
License points: 2
Only compatible with True Kin genotypes

Perfect

Night vision works much like Nightvision goggles.pngnight-vision goggles, granting a toggleable ability to see into dark areas in a 40-tile radius. This will also cause everything to appear green-colored, unless the "disable full-screen color effects" option is set.

Advantages & Disadvantages

This section is opinion-based. Your mileage may vary.

Advantages

  • Frees up a hand slot which would be taken up by a Torch.pngtorch or Glowsphere.pngglowsphere in the early game.
  • Available at start for True Kin regardless of starting arcology
  • Much larger radius than most light sources
  • Not carrying a light source grants the player some measure of stealth (most creatures can detect enemies only about 10-20 tiles away in total darkness)
  • Aids in long-distance ranged combat

Disadvantages

  • Face implant slot competes for a lot of debatably more useful implants.
  • The color replacement greatly reduces information the player receives at a glance, which can lead to a failure to recognize threats like legendary hostile enemies.
