Your Workplace

Your workplace contains the airlock above where you spawn.

Below you will find a list of items you will find inside your lovely new office.

The break room (where you will doubtfully ever go):

  • Donk Pockets (Contains Tricordrazine when microwaved)
  • A Virologist wardrobe (filled with items you spawned with)
  • A safe (Store your super diseases here if you are robust)

Yogstation Virology

The airlock contains:

  • A pair of sinks.
  • A shower
  • 2 level-3 bio-hazard lockers.
  • An emergency locker.

Virology(where all the shit happens):

  • The smart virus storage container, it contains in the start:
  • 1 Liquid plasma bottle (filled)
  • A Rhino-virus culture bottle (The Cold)
  • A Flu Virion culture bottle (The Flu)
  • Virology contains:
  • A beaker box.
  • A syringe box
  • A Spaceallin syringe
  • A spray bottle
  • A book, titled Infections - Making your own pandemic! (Currently has no text on Yogstation)
  • A green level-3 bio-hazard suit closet. This where you get your Virology bio suit and bio hood
  • A medicine closet, contains some syringes, a dropper, Inaprovaline and anti toxin
  • A Chem Dispenser, Dispenses Unstable Mutagen and Synaptizine
  • And your pandemic 2000! this will be what you use to create vaccine bottles, checking diseases, symptoms, and creating virus culture bottles!

Curing Diseases

GET THOSE FUKKEN CLOTHES ON.

Of course you will want to get your biosuit and latex gloves on before starting ANY work in virology.

Spilling infectious blood in lag spikes is easy to do, and if you spill it without any bio suit on or sterile mask or that stuff, expect yourself to be infected soon enough.

Spaceallin will suppress the disease and its symptoms for a short amount of time, this also prevents spreading of the disease.

The two ways to cure:

This is the most common way of curing someone of a disease they are carrying.

1. If the disease you are curing is currently rampant through the station, scan anyone who is infected! the cure will be shown.
2. Now get a human monkey and infect it! give it lots of whatever the disease cure is. (The type will go into remissive, and start going backwards in stages.)
3. If you gave them enough of the cure, hurray, their blood should now contain antibodies to said disease.
4. Put the humans monkeys blood in the PANDEMIC 2000 and create a vaccine culture bottle, hurray you can now vaccinate people. 
5. Cure people as needed by injecting them with the antibodies.


This is the other way of curing diseases, depending on what the cure is.

1. Get unstable mutagen from your dispenser, and start making symptoms in the rhino-virus culture bottle, 
2. You can use any other virus bottle but rhino-virus would be my favourite, for its ability to automatically spread as airborne.
3. Now start injecting it with unstable mutagen 1 unit a time until it gets the symptom: Anti-Bodies Metabolism. 
4. Isolate the symptom and give it to the infected people. They are now cured.

Making Diseases

Before we even get into anything I want you to walk around your lab, give it a good clean up, put anything you aren't going to use either in your break room or in your locker.

I just made your life 100 times easier, its a lot easier to make diseases if you aren't searching through piles of crap to find your beaker of unstable mutagen.

Now lets begin,

 1. Get your dropper, set it to 1, this will allow you to get maximum uses out of your culture bottles/catalysts.
 2. Get the plasma bottle out of the storage, plasma is required to get the most higher tier symptoms.
 3. Take the flu virion culture bottle if you only want a couple of trusted people to have it, or the rhino-virus if you want everyone to have it.
 4. Done that? Good. Now start by putting the chosen base virus into the Pandemic 2000 and make a copy. 
 5. Take the original out and put 4 plasma/unstable mutagen/virus food in it 1 unit at a time, you will get 4 symptoms, both good and bad.
   *If you get no good symptoms, trash the original and put in the base virus copy. Repeat until you get a virus with symptoms you like.
 6. Every time you get a virus with a symptom you want, put the copy of the base virus into the storage and make a copy of the culture bottle with the symptom using the Pandemic 2000!
 7. Now get a beaker and fill it up with synaptizine, use 1 unit of synaptizine on the original disease, if you removed a good symptom, trash the original and put the copy in and make 
    another copy, you can also name your culture bottles to save your progress along the way.
 8. If you removed a bad symptom, trash the copy and make a new copy. continue this until you have the symptoms you want. 
 9. Congratulations you have made a virus to spread around at your will.
Note: You can also combine diseases by taking a drop of blood from one disease and putting it in the other, although this isn't always perfect as it sometimes removes or overwrites symptoms.

Symptoms

A virus with a 'Stealth' stat of above 2 will not show up on Medical Scanners nor Medical HUD's. With 3 or more, it becomes invisible to the Pandemic 2000 too, so unless you're an antag, its a good idea to ensure that you avoid getting to stealth 3 unless you have antibodies for your symptoms.

Transmission Types

  • Blood - Touching blood with no protective equipment on or injections will cause this to spread.
  • Contact - Contact with skin from an infected object/person, this can include walking through someone.
  • Airborne - Will float around infected objects and people, range will be extended by sneezing.

Transmissibility also effects its ability to penetrate clothing, with higher potency diseases going through general clothing. Hard-suits and Bio-suits are always impossible to penetrate.

"Contact" transfers between items, so if you were touching something and some other tosser picked it up they have a chance to spread the disease. Same goes for corpses infected before death.

The higher Resistance it has the more rare the substance to cure it will be, if the Resistance is higher than the players "Disease Resistance" (Generally a pretty high Resistance) the player will not produce antibodies after getting cured.

Super Viruses... AND YOU!

Now, if you want to make a super virus, here's some handy tips for you!

Firstly, always use Rhino-virus as the base virus, as it makes the subject sneeze and will ensure that it spreads across the entire station!

Use plasma to get the high level symptoms then only use unstable mutagen. The plasma level symptoms you want to get are Self Respiration and Dexyribonucleic Acid Aide, Self Respiration makes your body produce dexalin, Acid Aide gives you powers which switch at random intervals between 2 seconds to 5 minutes.

After you have gotten those, your cure will probably be nutriment, and you need to eat, So get the Weight Even symptom! makes them not need to eat, and to top it of, get Stimulant.

EVERYONE loves stimulant (Except security, but security's' boring) and don't remove sneezing.

How to not get lynched by security

WARNING! For the unrobust.

  • DON'T use rhino-virus, or at least remove sneezing! They hate having people run faster than them or have hulk.
  • Only give the super power disease to a few trusted people!
  • Don't use your super powers for anything fun!

Making Medbay Useless (as if they aren't already)

Get 2 viruses, one with Sneezing, Weight Even, Stimulant and Acid Aide and the second with Sneezing, Toxic Compensation, Toxic Filter, Weight Even and Self Respiration. Release the viruses. ??? Profit! (Note: Genetics and chemistry will still be used for cloning and Alkysine respectively. Viruses will not bring back the dead or heal brain damage.)

Here are some good (and hilarious) diseases.

Nickname First Symptom/Virus Second Symptom/Virus Third Symptom/Virus Fourth Symptom/Virus Fifth Symptom/Virus Effects Transmission Type Notes
Survivability Sneezing Self Respiration Toxic Filter Toxic Compensation Will heal anyone of all their damage, Rather slowly, though. The full healing effects don't come into effect all at once. Also anyone in crit who isn't being actively killed wont die if the full effects of this disease is on them. Airborne
Super Hero Sneezing Acid Aide Stimulant Will make anyone (and most probably everyone) get randomly changing super powers, which they will subsequently use to to help and serve the station, They will also be able to run at the speed of light. Airborne
The Antag Special Sneezing Necrotizing Fasciitis Acid Saboteur Vomit Blood Voice Change Everyone starts dying. Great to release if you're a little shit. Airborne
One Of Us Sneezing Vitiligo Alopecia Facial Hypertrychosis Making everyone be bald, become white and grow massive beards. The station will try to lynch you for this. Airborne Ask admins before using this, they may get pissed at you.
Cure-All Sneezing Anti-Bodies Metabolism Cures all other diseases other than itself. Release only if there's a really bad virus on the station. Airborne
