Medical Supplements

MOD Desc
Overview V1.1

Adds pharmaceuticals and new food items.

Drug Chemical Mixer
Autonomously produce precursor chemicals. The mixer has ‘input’ and ‘output’ hoppers to control resources and product. There is a selector for the chemical to produce, control production and set stock limits.

Drug Cabinet
Can be used to store items (acts as a shelf). Additionally adds some cleanliness whilst boosting production of drug labs.

Disinfectant Stand
A disinfectant stand that passively sterilises its surrounding. Adds cleanliness and a little beauty. Great for makeshift hospital, addition to food area or bathroom (if you are using dubs hygiene.)

Requires Medicine Production and Sterile materials research. Can link to beds to boost immunity gain by 0.03%. Cost 1 component, 40 silver, 4 medicine, and 40 material of choice.

Medical Mats
Bedrolls used in the field or as caravan itinerary. Four tech versions (Medieval, Industrial, Spacer and Ultra) which can be researched after hospital beds (except for Medieval which is after Carpet Making). Note the items are best made in advance at a tailoring bench/crafting spot. Upon deconstruction it will return the base item used and using a crafting spot you can repack any uninstalled buildings to be rolled back up. Suggest using the mod ‘Pick up and haul’.

Precursor Chemicals
MS uses a number of additional precursors in the generation of the drugs. This is to add game play value and additional balancing elements for the use of the drugs. Details can be found in the Drug reference PDF below.

Drugs
Details of the drugs can now be found in the following PDF:

MS Drugs Reference[1drv.ms]

Immunisation
An immunisation injection can be made after Rimoxicillin research. Made from Ethyl mercury, Neutroamine and Rimoxicillin with the use of an industrial Med kit. The immunisation will either remove the “Sickly” trait from a colonist or will add the “Super-Immune” trait instead. It is provided in the form of a self-administered injection.

Cerebrax injection
Cerebrax is an injection that removes “negative” psychic sensitivity traits. Being spacer tech it is made with Ultratech medicine, Neutroamine, Lithium Salts and Clarity. The injection will remove psychic susceptibility traits in stages, so hyper-sensitivity will require two injections.

Additional Surgical procedures:
Medical Stent: Can be used to remove arterial blockages.

Artificial back discs: Can be used to remove the bad back condition.

Advanced Surgical tools: Can be used to perform complex surgeries where additional precision tools are required. Currently used in the following:

• Removal of Cataracts. (Combined with contact lenses).

Battle Stims
Battles Stims are short term Mechanite boosters akin to Luciferium, but the negative effects are different and more controlled in that there isn’t any lethality or addiction issues. Applied by self-administered injection prior to being drafted. The Stim lasts for half a day. (Further details in the PDF).

Transcendence
Transcendence is a stim that is similar to the Mechanoid Neurotrainer, it is an injection of treated mechanites that will effect the neural arrangements and chemistry of the brain. The effects of transcendence are less random with the capability of ordering the applied qualities of knowledge and skills learned into more characteristic skill sets. However the amount gained is slightly less than that of a normal Neurotrainer. (Further details in the PDF).

Mod Notes
Mod option to make bandage use more realistic.

Mod option to adjust the % base cost of research projects.

Includes bulk recipes as relevant. Includes bulk MS recipes for medicine and penoxy.

Also includes MS recipes for Ultratech Medicine, Healer mech serum and Ressurector mech serum as ultra tech. (Note that the Mech serums will need a number of Metasis vials to make).

Includes 3 different bandages at differing tech levels that act as a weaker counterpart to vanilla medicine but have advantages with weight, so ideal for caravan use or when medicine is limited.

Save compatible (Note: You will need to reassign new drug policies if part way through a savegame to schedule the use of the above MS drugs, see Drug Policy Fix below).

To remove the mod you would have to remove all the items introduced first.

Drug Policy Fix (V1.1); can be used to help manage and correct drugs added or removed part way through a save game. It will also sort the drug listings alphabetically.

Mod Medicine Patch – allows you to specify additional modded medicines (GUI), works with the mod Pharmacy.

Several research projects (in a number of tabs). Recommend mods that make the management of research projects more user friendly. Examples include (but not limited to): Research Tree, ResearchPal.

  • So, I really love the mod. However I have some slight suggestions when it comes to balancing. Mosty I have been using pain control medications. The main issue that I see with them is that the benefits are too good while having almost no side effects. For example Rimcodamol. loosely based I assume on codeine or tramadol, a so called weak opioid. Now, when patients take this medication very often they have nausea, constipation and dizziness (I am a doctor, i speak from experience). i think it would be good to add for example a -5% eating and consciousness to represent this fact.
  • From PDF: ‘Scrubnites: A modified version of Antinites that specifically remove the effects of addictions. It effects last for 3 days and the pain levels associated with the treatment are somewhat reduced in comparison to Antinites. Made from Antinites Vial, Injector Unit, Unhook and Uranium at a StimLab. (Note effects to Luciferium addiction will be reduced).’The reduction is 50% of the normal tolerance loss for other addictions when specifically treating Luci. Pain will be 20% more initially which reduces down to 10% over the 3 day period.
  • much as i would like to make the values for certain pain medication perform less effectively. The benchmark for these values had already been set by vanilla and other mods prior to developing opiates or other pain medication. I could potentially adjust these but then the mod would be competing with other mods for substantive functionality. This is usually the case where the developers or masses seem to set the values for these elements without much consideration for realism and/or with a need to be the best drug around rather than good design. I thus had to choose a middle ground for some of the drugs as a result. Most of the other drugs in MS I hope you can see have tried to be a little more subtle in their application as opposed to incidental min/maxing of medications.
  • don’t personally have time to patch my mods for CE atm. CE seems to change far too often and requires significant compatibility details for a number of elements to just consider it a simple thing to maintain compatibility with. At least for my liking and there’s sufficient overhead associated with managing and maintaining mods before thinking about compatibility elements.Personally, from a design philosophy standpoint, I’d also still prefer mods like CE try to make themselves more compatible with vanilla using differing techniques than trying to re-write RW to be something it isn’t. Though in principal, I do like and support what they are trying to achieve in adding realism and difficulty to combat.I would have no objections if someone else wanted to provide a CE compatibility patch however.
