Upgrading muse skills.
Maybe I just mist it in the core, but is there anyway to upgrade Muse skills? Does it follow the standard rez point upgrade rules?

The core does say that they can be equiped with skillsofts, but that do not earn rez and cannot improve on their own. So can they be upgraded?

In some skills they can be. A skillsoft has a skillrating up to 40. so potentially your muse can have (atribute)+40 in any skill your GM lets you buy software for.

i belive skillsofts can only increase you skill to 40 ie (aptitude+skillsoft)=40. so if you have a 40 apitude skill softs would be of no use other than allowing you to use non-defaultable skills. also quote from book(emphasis add) Standard Skillsoft: These programs provide the character with a rating of [u]up to[/u] 40 in a single Active skill.

Ya, Dicivre smacked me with that one in another thread. For the record i agree that I was wrong in my post above. But I likes my skills seprate from my attributes.

It is quite possible that Skillsoft ratings are applied before the morph-based Aptitude modifiers since your normal skill rating is calculated before these are factored in, so it might be possible to get another +5 or +10 added to them.

That sound's correct by a strict reading of the rules: Skill = Ego Stats (Abilitiy + Skill level) Target number = Ego Stats (ability + Skill level) + Morph bonus + Gear bonus (+- Modifiers)

If you have any skill in programming, then program your muse yourself - it is just AI (optionally hire someone). I'm sure that there are many free programming libraries in the mesh, so you don't have to program everyting from scratch. Don't forget to make backup copy, just in case.
