Mindforce is an activity in the game that allows you to use Mind Essence, together with an implant and a Mindforce Chip, to perform various tasks such as Sweating, Teleporting, Healing, etc.
In order to become a MindForcer and harness the power of MindForce, one will need the following gear:
NeoPsion Implant: This gives you the ability to use MindForce chips. You only need to insert one implant in order to use any MindForce chip(s) that is within the specified level range of the implant.
Payn-Inc Implant Inserter: You only need to use this for inserting implants, which does not have to be done often, so you can sell this back to the TT after you have inserted your implant.
MindForce Chip: This is what allows you to use each ability, you will need to possess a different chip for each ability you wish to use.
Mind Essence: This is the ammunition of Mindforce.(Mind Essence/ Synthetic Mind Essence / Light Mind Essence / Universal ammo)
11 NeoPsion Implants are known to exist. Each one supports a fixed chip level interval.
NeoPsion Implant AA (Level 1-3)
NeoPsion Implant AB (Level 3-7)
NeoPsion Implant AC (Level 4-7)
NeoPsion Implant AD (Level 4-8)
NeoPsion Implant AE (Level 2-8)
NeoPsion Implant AF (Level 4-10)
NeoPsion Implant AG (Level 3-10)
NeoPsion Implant BA (Level 1-3)
NeoPsion Implant BB (Level 1-5)
NeoPsion Implant BC (Level 1-7)
NeoPsion Implant BD (Level 1-9)
Payn-Inc Implant Inserter
The Implant Inserter will insert a new NeoPsion Implant into your brain. It costs roughly 2.00 PED per use. You only need to use this for inserting implants, which does not have to be done often, so you can sell this back to the TT after you have inserted your implant.
The decay for NeoPsion Implants is rather low (roughly 0.01 PED per use).
The MindForce powers are unlocked by inserting the correct MindForce chip into the NeoPsion Implant. Once you have a NeoPsion implanted, you can use any MindForce chips that the NeoPsion supports, simply by equipping the MindForce chip when you need them, or hotkeying them for quick access.
MindForce chips belong to one of several different categories: attack, heal, defensive and utility.
Attack Chips: These chips include the Electric, Combustion and Cryogenic Attack chips, for example. They inflict different types of damage on the target.
Strike Chips: These chips will damage creatures and avatars within a certain radius. If the avatar inflicting the damage is in a team, the team members will not be harmed. Examples of these chips are Electric Strike chips, Cryogenic Strike chips and Combustive Strike chips.
Regeneration Chips: Regeneration chips are used to heal your avatar and allies.
Regeneration Field: Regeneration Field chips will heal all avatars within a certain radius. If the healer is in a team, only those in the team will be affected by the heal.
Synchronization chips: For a period of time, your concentration period will be protected from interruption.
Teleportation chips: These chips allow your avatar to travel great distances instantaneously using teleportation technology.
Wormhole Chips: These chips allow you to open up a wormhole to another player on your friend list, allowing all avatars nearby to teleport to the other location, including yourself and your friend.
Resurrect Chips: Certain rare Resurrect chips are available, which allow the MindForce user to resurrect dead avatars.
Note that the MindForce chips have different potency levels, indicating how effective they are. This is indicated by the suffix in chip's name, and is also displayed in the Item Info panel (right-clicking on the chip). Some MindForce chips have skill requirements, meaning you need to train your skills in the MindForce area before these powers can be attempted at all.
Mind Essence is a refined energy substance required for the use of different MindForce abilities. You will be consuming Mind Essence every time you use a MindForce chip; the amount consumed per use is displayed in the Item Info panel of the MindForce chip.
You must have Mind Essence in your inventory in order to use most MindForce abilities. Some chips may consume either Universal Ammo or Mind Essence, this is specified in the Item Info panel for each chip under the heading "Mind essence type".
There are three kinds of Mind Essence:
Synthetic Mind Essence: The only one of the three types that can be found in the Trade Terminal and thus comes without any added markup value. Synthetic Mind Essence is commonly used in the lower level Damage and Heal chips.
Light Mind Essence: Light Mind Essence is made from refining Diluted Sweat with Force Nexus using a Energy Refiner available from the Trade Terminal. Force Nexus is a raw energy material found through mining. Light Mind Essence is typically used for Area Heal and Area Damage Chips.
Mind Essence: Mind Essence is made by combining Vibrant Sweat and Force Nexus using the Enmatter Refiner. Mind Essence is mainly used for Teleportation and Synchronization chips.

Using your Mindforce Chip
Equip / Use
Using a mindforce chip is similar to using many other tools/weapons in the game. Once you have inserted a suitable NeoPsion implant, you can equip your chip. Either right click the chip and click equip, add it to your desktop(in game icon panel), or map it to a keypress. Once you have equipped your chip it works like most tools, u can aim in first person and shoot, or click to select a target then repeatedly click(or tap your hotkey) to equip then fire.
Using Mindforce to Teleport
Teleportation is unique in the sense that it may be considered a Mindforce-exclusive feature; there is no way to teleport using a physical item.
In actuality of course, teleportation is merely a means to travel from one location to another, which may also be done with a vehicle, or simply by walking. When using such a chip, the map window will open and allow you to select a teleportation destination.
Some very rare Mindforce chips allow you to create wormholes. A wormhole is a special object which floats in spacetime for thirty seconds before collapsing. During this time period, any number of colonists may Operate the wormhole, which will relocate them to the teleportation destination.
