using antibiotics on a perfectly "healthy" person makes you "sick"
Closed, ResolvedPublic


using antibiotics on a perfectly "healthy" person makes you "sick". although i'd have to admit that it would make some sense (side effects, intolerances, allergic shock etc) this needs to be tweaked. there needs to be a distinction made between "sick" and "sick".

maybe use something like "don't feel well", "feel uneasy" or use whole new status messages after using antibiotics, alcohol tincture, charcoal tablets or vitamins such as
"...your body responds well to xyz"
"...your body responds badly to xyz"

the reason why is becausethe game is ment to be realistic and this wont be fix in my opinion because

  1. if u take antibiotics or charcoal tabs you will become sick because

2.a antibiotics destroy bacteria in the body, so on a healthy body it is harmfull as its destroying unneccesary bacteria, b charcoal tabs react in the same principle they have no chemmicals to counteract so therefore is most definatly unhealthy too

  1. taking painkillers does not make you sick, because we can all buy them in every day life without major short term efects, wheras antibiotics we get by a dotor and a prescription...

what do u guys think, and yes i have made my sick the same way through experimenting in the game. Another tip is also cleaning wounds with alcohol should only be preformed on infected wounds which is the only part of medicine i dont agree with, because the alcohol is a disinfectant and therefore it should steralise the wounds, but i might be wrong on this one.

I had this issue yesterday, it appears to be cause by the lack of a sickness indicator when you get sick/infection. I spent about an hour running around with my charter making groaning sounds I'd been hit by a few Zombies but hadn't eaten anything rotten and my status was "healthy". I found some antibiotics and took them and then got the sick message in my inventory screen.

On occasion a message would pop up saying that it seems to be working, sometime later another message saying that I was healed popped up, and my char stopped groaning, I fell off a building, died, respawned then had it out with another Zombie now I'm groaning again looking for antibiotics to try and replicate.

I can confirm this. It makes you sick, then deals with the sickness, curing you of it.

This has changed. I just ate 30+ antibiotics + painkillers and charcoal tablets. I did not get sick.

It used to be that every medical thing you took gave you the "sick" notification, including disenfecting your wounds, but they changed it.
