Mechs come in two main flavors. Standard mechs are almost entirely customizable, but altering or repairing them takes significant amounts of money and time. Omnimechs, have a fixed set of internal components but can be repaired quickly and can be refit with a different loadout almost instantaneously. Omnimechs tend to have vastly more weapon hardpoints than standard mechs to facilitate that flexibility.
Roguetech adds Specialist slots, found just to the left of the head, as a method for handling Mech quirks, as well as "carried" (backpack, hands, etc.) items. These quirks contain Chassis unique buffs, which can affect anything from weapon systems to repair costs.
Fixed equipment cannot be removed from a mech. In exchange for this lack of flexibility these components are often rare or better than stock versions. Also, these components cannot be permanently destroyed. If destroyed in battle simply repairing the chassis will bring back the fixed equipment good as new. Certain improved fixed equipment can be replaced. For instance, the slightly upgraded cockpit equipment on SLDF Royal Mechs can still be replaced with customized equipment.
The aim of tissue engineering is to restore, repair and replace damaged and diseased tissues with incorporation of biological substitutes such as living cells, biomolecules, biocompatible and degradable synthesis or natural materials that can restore, maintain and enhance the function of tissues or organs . Currently therapies for tissue regeneration involve the utilization of isolated cells or cell substrates, the delivery of tissue-induced biomolecules such as proteins, drugs and oligonucleotides, and finally artificial constructs with or without bio-macromolecules [2, 3]. The engineered constructs approach is the most commonly used technique for tissue engineering. Among them, developing biocompatible and bioactive biomaterials is critically essential for tissue engineering. In the past decades, a great development has been achieved with different novel biomaterials with aid of stem cells and growth factors to mimic the intrinsic architecture and physiochemical properties of the target extracellular matrix (ECM) which plays a significant role in providing appropriate physical and biological atmosphere and supporting cellular interactions including proliferation, migration, differentiation and eventually formation of new tissues. Natural or synthetic polymers have been extensively investigated due to their good biocompatibility and biodegradable properties. However, some polymers and their relative inert nature limited their uses in the tissue engineering. Therefore, combining with other bioactive materials to produce comprehensively enhanced composite materials has become one of trends to develop biomaterials for tissue engineering.
Nerve loss/damage may arise from external trauma, anoxia, hypoglycaemia, diabetes and virus infection . Although nerve axons are able to regrowth, the damage size is limited to 5 mm and coaptation is always needed to surgically join the damaged nerve ends. Therefore, a variety of nerve therapies have been developed including coaptation, nerve autograft, nerve allograft and nerve conduit . Any strategy which is used to repair the damaged central nervous system (CNS) cannot avoid addressing the regeneration of axons, the plastic remodelling of neuronal circuitry, and the regeneration of neurons which are arisen from stem cells [128,129,130]. However, this is a very complex issue. Axons growth needs to overcome unfavourable and inhibited environment, and requires proper axonal spatial organization, target recognition and the rebuild of functional synapses. Stem cells are required to be alive and able to differentiate into a specific neuronal lineage . Therefore, the design of any treatment for damaged nerves has to take into account all these steps. In this perspective, the synthetic material- based implants such as artificial scaffolds are required to provide biocompatible and bioactive environment, allowing the attachment, maintenance, and differentiation of nerve cells and eventually inducing the formation of functional neuronal assembly [130,131,132]. Furthermore, the platform provided for nerve regeneration needs to have appropriate dimensions to avoid any nerve damage and compression and to allow the release of neurotrophic factors and diffusion by the proximal site of axon injury . Flexibility is crucial to allow in vivo manipulation, requiring appropriate ultimate tensile strength and elastic modulus (1.4 and 0.58 MPa respectively for decellularised nerve tissue) [134,135,136]. Eventually, Nanotopography is of great importance since the interaction of neurons with their growing substitutes occurs in nanoscale level such as neural cell adhesion molecules-NCAM,N-cadherin and integrins which are extremely sensitive to the nanoatmosphere of substrates [137, 138]. A variety of researches has been reported in terms of directly using CNTs as substrates for neuronal tissue engineering and results showed that CNTs are able to support neurons attachment, facilitate a generation of longer and more elaborate neurite and also promote cell differentiation [139,140,141]. However, the potential toxicity of CNTs in biological system and the difficulty of producing a regulated 2D/3D structures strictly restricted the utilization of CNTs as a substrate for neural tissue engineering. Polymeric scaffolds, although providing a biocompatible environment, are lack of electrical conductivity and appropriate tensile strength, limiting the applications of electrically propagating tissue. However, the combination of CNTs with high electrical conductivity and extraordinary mechanical properties might provide an alternative pathway for these non-conductive materials in the neuronal tissue engineering and meanwhile minimize the toxicity effect of CNTs.
Tanaka et al.  fabricated 3D block structure of CNTs and investigated the efficiency as scaffold materials for bone repair, comparing with PET-reinforced collagen. Mechanical tests showed the fabricated structure showed no significant differences with rat femoral bone with similar compressive strength of 62.1 MPa and 61.86 Mpa respectively. Earlier cell adhesion occurred in CNT scaffolds than PET-reinforced collagen scaffolds. CNTs block showed higher ALP activity with presence of recombinant human BMP-2, indicating good osteogenesis behavior. Tanaka et al.  further compared CNTs with hydroxyapatite (HA) in vitro and in vivo. Results showed that CNTs presented better protein absorption and release ability. In vivo tests showed that CNT porous structures had higher cell proliferation, better osteoconduction and more bone generated with the incorporation with recombinant human BMP-2. A variety of researches has already reported the combination of bioceramics such as hydroxyapatite and bioglass with CNTs for bone repair. Oyefusi et al.  grafted HA onto CNTs and graphene nanosheets and investigated these materials in terms of cell proliferation and differentiation by using human fetal osteoblastic cell line. Osteocalcin, an indicator of differentiation rate, was assessed by total protein assays and western blot analysis. Results showed that both CNTs-HA and graphene-HA materials supported cell growth and differentiation. Liu et al.  used CNTs as reinforcement fillers to enhance the mechanical properties of bioglass scaffolds including compressive strength (maximum value of 37.32 MPa for samples containing 3 wt% of CNTs) and fracture toughness (maximum value of 1.58 MPa m1/2 for samples containing 3wt% of CNTs). Scaffolds were produced using a powder-bed fusion additive manufacturing system. Cell studies using human osteosarcoma MG-63 cells showed the composite had good cytocompatibility. Khalid et al.  investigated MWCNT/HA scaffolds produced with different loadings of CNTs (1wt%, 3wt% and 5 wt%). Results using human osteoblast sarcoma cell lines showed that the cytotoxicity of the composite scaffolds was dose-dependent and that cell viability decreased with the increase in CNT content. 2b1af7f3a8
