Background[edit | edit source]
The Sink's Auto-Doc is a prototype of Auto-Doc built by Dr. Mobius before he left the Think Tank and all of The Sink's systems were disabled. The Sink's Auto-Doc is capable of fully healing patient injuries as well as purge the body of radiation. It can also install implants if any have been loaded into its server. Haircuts and cosmetic surgery are another periphery the Auto-Doc can provide given it has the programs loaded. Although it was not programmed to do such, the Auto-Doc can perform a physiological analysis on patients; it can only do this once.
When his personality back-up is recovered from the Y-17 medical facility, the Auto-Doc is revealed to be modelled after a stereotypical Wild West doctor of the 1880s/1890s. When inactive the unit may: snore loudly, apparently ramble on about patient injuries such as; 'shoe lung' while 'asleep', or make passing comments on the player's general health.

Bugs[edit | edit source]
- Even with all the holotapes located & installed, the only options available while interacting with the Sink Auto-Doc are heal yourself & respec your traits.
