Solution A: Someone (probably a GM) lists out on the wiki (in an IC manner) or on the help files (which would probably have to be specifically geared towards an object or task) what skill is used for what.
Solution B: When you go to do a task, and examine/inspect the object, something will show what skill is used and maybe what level of it is needed.
Solution C: Nothing changes and people just xhelp to ask why they can't install/do tasks that they just spent 9 UE on the wrong skill for. And get told something like "that's the fun of the game!"
if you're looking for a specific example, I tried to repair a SecureGuard 5K system. Repaired a little bit of it with my existing skills & mechanics belt:
* Intelligence : mid range � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �
* Luck � � � � : mid range� � � � � � � � �
* � Electro Tech : sucky � �
* � Auto Tech � �: decent
* � Secure Tech �: extra sucky
I had 9 UE to spend so I bumped up what I figured this SecureGuard 5K Security System might need to use to get it repaired: Security and Systems. With the following stats below, I still couldn't repair the system any further.
* � Secure Tech �: sub-decent
* � Systems � � �: above-sucky
Which leads me to be like, what the hell? Is it just that my skills suck that much, or is it that I'm putting UE into the wrong skills? Which led me to this post. This type of problem happens pretty frequently...to me.
<edited so that my stats aren't actually in there, you get the idea though>
