So, I need your community help. I'm printing out sheets for my game tonight, and I wrote them up while I was at home, and had access to my books. Unfortunately, I didn't make note of what certain pieces of cyberware *do* in my PDF sheets, and I'd rather not scribble in the margins if I can help it. So I was hoping people could give me a hand in terms of what the mechanical benefits of certain pieces of Cyberware do, so I can edit the sheet and print it before I head home:

1) Math SPU. I seem to recall this added +2 to electronic warware and mathematics tests, yeah?
2) Control Rig Booster 3: This adds +3 dice to vehicle actions when directly jumped into a vehicle, yeah? Does it do anything else?
3) Neocortical Booster 3: I totally don't remember what this does.

Math SPU: +2 dice pool modifier to all tests focused on the user's mathematical abilities, as well as to any Electronic Warfare tests involving encoding or decoding.
Control Rig Booster: +3 bonus to the character's Piloting skill when jumped into a drone or vehicle via VR. No other bonuses.
Neocortical: +3 dice pool modifier to all Logic-connected Skills, as long as the character is able to concentrate on the problem at hand without major distraction or encroaching stressful situations.

That last two are nanoware, technically. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Don't forget that, as a direct skill boost, Control Rig Booster 3 only works with natural skill 6.

Yeah, the character has a Nanohive in him, as well.

On the Control Rig Booster: wouldn't it work for a skill of 5, as well?

Could go either way. I have seen tables that say yes, and some that say no. By STRICTEST ruling, you need a Skill of 6 for the Rating 3 version.

Meh, I'll be liberal and let him roll with the +3 at a rating 5 in the skill, I guess.

*shrug* Attrib max is round down, so Skill'd be the same. But rounding is mostly up to GM, if the book isn't 200% crystal clear. I'd always round toward 'less powerful'.

Less powerful is good. Most of the time... (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)
