Symptoms Table


  • You can obtain symptom levels 1 and 2 with Virus Food, which you start with a dispenser full of. For symptom levels 3 and 4 you will need to acquire Unstable Mutagen. Levels 5 and 6 requires liquid plasma.
  • Higher Resistance means the virus will be harder to cure and the cure will be a more rare substance.
  • Higher overall transmittable level means the virus will generally have a more dangerous method of infection.

Understanding stats

After you're done mixing your disease, stats from the symptoms are added together to make disease stats. Here's what exactly they do:

  • Stealth of 2 or higher will hide your disease from medHUD and scanners. Stealth of 3 or higher will hide it from P.A.N.D.E.M.I.C. machine.
  • Transmission is determined as follows: (disease's transmission - amount of symptoms). 1 or less is blood, 2-4 is contact, 5 is airbone. However, sneezing will force it to be airbone.
  • Chance of advancing a stage per tick is 2% or stage speed, whichever is higher.
  • Cure depends on resistance and amount of symptoms: resistance - (amount of symptoms / 2)
1 or less 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 or more
Nutriment Sugar Orange juice Spaceacilin Kelotane Ethanol Leporazine Synaptizine Lipozine Silver Gold
  • Chance of it being cured every tick is 15 - resistance, but always between 10 and 20.
  • Transmission affects how much protective gear you must have to protect yourself from it.

Preset Diseases

Thankfully, humanity has managed to cure and eliminate almost all of the diseases that plagued its infancy. However, the vast reaches of space have been found to harbor new illnesses that can affect the unprepared staff on Nanotrasen research stations.

Disease Vector Name Description Spread Cure
Alien Parasite Xenomorph An uncommon infection, caused by alien rape. A facehugger has implanted an embryo inside of the body of the victim, which will grow until it kills and destroys the body while spawning a larva. Special Surgery
Beesease Apidae Infection If left untreated, affected mob will regurgitate bees. Contact Sugar
Brain Rot Cryptococcus Cosmosis An infection that causes mental degradation. Contact Alkysine and Spaceacillin.
Cold XY-Rhinovirus Still around since the dawn of man, this disease is relativity harmless, causing fatigue and a runny nose. Will progress to the Flu when untreated. Airborne Rest and Spaceacillin
Cold 9 ICE9-Rhinovirus A rare disease that will progressively lower the victim's body temperature in addition to respiratory symptoms. Contact Spaceacillin
Flu H13N1 Flu Viron A common illness, causes fatigue, high fever, and muscle toxicity. Rarely fatal, quickly spread. Airborne Spaceacillin
GBS Gravitokinetic Bipotential SADS+ An extremely dangerous illness caused by contagious micro-singularities that will cause the human body to be torn apart from the inside. The initial phase begins in the lungs and mimics flu symptoms. Contact Sulfur and Synaptizine
Jungle Fever Kongey Vibrion M-909 One of the most feared diseases in the galaxy, this is a disease carried by primates. A single bite or scratch is enough to fully infect a human. The result is spontaneous genetic reversion, and the affected individual will also become a monkey. Special Bananas
Magnitis Fukkos Miracos An infection of magnetic bacteria that build up in the body. As the disease progresses any metallic items not bolted down near the infected person will be pulled toward them, even objects as large as canisters. Ingested iron will draw the bacteria to it and allow them to be excreted normally. Contact Iron Pills
Pierrot's Throat H0NI<42 Virus A brain disease that was brought back with the original explorers of Clown Planet that damages the basal ganglia, victims will have an uncontrollable urge to HONK. Airborne Bananas
Space Retrovirus S4E1 Retrovirus A DNA-altering retrovirus found in some types of [slime] that will constantly mutate the genetic code of the host. Symptoms vary wildly from blindness to incredible fits of strength and green skin. Contact Rest and Ryetalyn
Robotic Transformation R2D2 Nanomachines A rare infection caused by nanomachines in certain foods, effectively kills the infected as their body becomes metallic and their skin sloughs off. Special Copper Injection
Spanish Flu 1nqu1s1t10n Flu Viron A rare and deadly form of flu that causes an incredibly high fever. Those infected will die of internal burns without treatment or religious conversion. Airborne Spaceacillin
Wizarditus Rincewindus Vulgaris A rare illness, causes spontaneous robe growth, randomly speaking incantations, and finally random teleportation. Airborne Manly Dorfs
Xenomorphic Transformation Rip-LEY Alien Microbes A rare infection caused by xeno-microbes in certain foods, changing the infected's DNA to that of a xenomorph Symptoms include severe pain and progressive insanity. Special Glycerol and Spaceacillin

Forced Evolution Virus

One of the symptoms you can obtain is the Viral Re-adaption Secretion. This virus will cause the infected patient to secret a chemical known as "Viral Re-adaption".

The chemical will not react with anything except blood and only cause massive brute damage on a living person. It's main use is to combine several symptoms into one stronger unobtainable symptom.

To do this, start by injection someone with Viral Re-adaption Secretion. Keep checking on their blood with a medical analyzer. Once they start secreting it, you can inject them with a virus composed of the right symptoms. Note that the Secretion will react while inside a mob, so you can save time by combining the Viral Re-adaption Secretion symptom with the 2 symptoms you wish to combine. If the necessary symptoms are present, the symptoms will be removed and replaced with the new one.
