Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Scum and Villainy
Upgrade Type: Universal Upgrade
Upgrade Point Cost: 2
Droidification is an extensive process that turns a common piece of Equipment into a fully functioning Droid. The Equipment can either act as a Droid with access to the Equipment it was built from, or conceal itself as a normal piece of Equipment. While concealing itself as normal Equipment, the Droid can't take any Actions, and a DC 25 Perception check is required to realize the Equipment is unusual.
The Droidified Equipment uses the statistics of an ASP Labor Droid with the following modifications determined by the Equipment's size: -3 Strength, +1 Dexterity, and -2 squares of speed per size smaller than Medium, but no score can be reduced to less than 1. (This is actual size, not Weapon size.) Apply all modifiers to the statistics for the object's size as normal. The Droid is automatically considered to have (And be proficient with) the Equipment it is built out of, and although it does not automatically gain any Skills needed to use itself as Equipment, owners commonly program the Droid's unspent Feat on an appropriate Skill Training Feat.
Only devices can receive this Upgrade. Weapons, Armor, and Vehicles cannot be Droidified.
Example: Deel Surool owns a Datapad he'd like to be able to call (Like a pet). Since a Datapad has only one Upgrade Slot, he increases it's size to Diminutive (Due to it's weight, a Datapad is a Fine item). He then pays to have it Droidified. This makes it the equivalent of an ASP Labor Droid with Strength 8, Dexterity 15, and a speed of 1 square. Since it is a walking Datapad, Deel programs it to use it's unassigned Feat for Skill Training in Use Computer (Giving it Use Computer +3), enough to download data from an unprotected system.
