Vital statistics
Background: Computer Specialist
Trait: Knack for Electronics
Addictions: None
Inventory Size: 12
I was on holiday when the siege began. I had met an interesting man on the Internet and after several months of chatting I decided to accept his invitation to visit him. He showed me around Pogoren. I was anxious why so many people were leaving. There was an ominous aura over the city. However, I was assured that there was nothing to worry about. Nobody here wanted war and they would never allow it to break out. But it did. I tried to flee the city but it was already too late.

–Computer Specialist bio


The computer specialist can be selected when setting up a custom game. The player is allowed to choose the gender of the character, name, in-game appearance, and character picture- either from a small library of included pictures or from a user-supplied picture placed in the Documents/This War of Mine/Portraits folder. The character's biography will slightly change based upon the gender chosen.

Advantages

WARNING : A recent update seems to have reworked the Computer Specialist and thus every thing said below may not be true with an up to date game, it's new advantage is being able to craft two Thermo Regulator, Mixer & Heat Lamp at once ( without using more Electric Parts. )

This update is making the Computer Specialist way less effective that he once was, totally annihilating his over powerness.

( \Obsolete )

The Computer Specialist trait, 'Knack for Electronics' allows him/her to craft any item or Workshop that requires Electric Parts, with 40% fewer components. Examples include the Radio, Advanced Workshop, Thermo Regulator, Mixer & Heat Lamp.
