    Default D20 Modern Smart Hero/Techie Build Help

    My DM handed me another character the other day and wants me to start playing him. The only thing is that my D20 modern knowledge is pretty lacking. So this is what I have for information on the character:

    Michael Carver
    Smart Hero 3
    Str: 11
    Dex: 12
    Con: 13
    Int: 16
    Wis: 10
    Cha: 16
    Wealth Bonus: 18
    Feats: Iron Will, Personal Firearms Proficiency, Quick Reload. Simple Weapons Proficiency, Windfall
    Talents: Savant (Behavioral Sciences), Exploit Weakness
    Current Items: Computer (notebook), Portable Sattelite Phone, Basic Mechanical Kit, Backpack and I plan on buying a modem the first chance I get because I didn't know that I needed one of those

    I'm planning on taking a level in Techie next level since I got all the necessary prerequisites but does anybody have any advice for how this build should go? Any feats I should look at or items or perhaps other classes? There is nothing better for questions like this than a hive mind. So yea, any help is greatly appreciated. Also don't ask me why I got a Savant in Behavioral Sciences, it sounded good at the time but in retrospect...probably a few better choices.

    You have a lot of money and are OK with guns. Buy a masterwork +3 gun, preferably an assault rifle.
    What are your skills like? Skills matter a lot in d20 Modern, more than they do in DnD.

    For skills I have my max of 6 ranks in:

    Computer Use
    Craft (Electronic)
    Craft (Chemical)
    Craft (Mechanical)
    Diplomacy
    Disable Device
    Investigate
    Knowledge (Behavioral Sciences)

    and my half ranks of 3 in:

    Knowledge (Physical Sciences)
    Knowledge (Earth and Life Sciences)
    Decipher Script
    Demolitions
    Listen
    Repair
    Research
    Sense Motive

    then the ability modifiers as applied from the OP, an armor penalty of -2 for all the skills it applies to because of an undercover vest, and miscelanious +1 from my occupation as a Technician
