MOD


Module for use with Vector, containing two oddball non-fatal diseases : Accidentitis and Laugh Riot

DOCUMENTATION


Accidentitis


This disease operates in the following manner:
  1. An incubation period of 24 to 48 sim-hours
    • The sim is not contagious, nor showing signs at this point
  2. A period of 24 to 48 sim-hours where the sim shows signs of the disease
    • The sim is not contagious at this point
    • During this period, objects will randomly break while the sim is nearby
    • After which a check is performed to see whether the disease has entered remission, Step 5
    • If not remission, the period is repeated a maximum of three times and moves to Step 3
  3. A contagious period of 24 to 48 hours where the sim shows signs of the disease
    • Symptoms are light during this period
    • After which a check is performed to see whether the disease has entered remission, Step 5
    • If not remission, the period is repeated a maximum of three times and moves to Step 4
  4. The disease tests to see whether the sim should be converted into a simbot
    • This stage is optional, controlled by the "Allow Cyborgnetic Transformation" option
    • If the sim is converted, the disease ends and the sim is permanently immune from new infections
    • If not converted, the diseases progresses back to Step 1
  5. A remission period of 120 to 240 sim-hours (5 to 10 sim-days)
    • After which a check is performed to see whether the disease has remained in remission
    • If not remission, the disease progresses back to Step 1

Laugh Riot


This disease operates in the following manner:
  1. An incubation period of 24 to 48 sim-hours
    • The sim is not contagious, nor showing signs at this point
  2. A contagious period of 24 to 48 sim-hours where the sim shows positive signs of the disease
    • After which a check is performed to see whether the sim has entered withdrawal
    • If not resisted, the period is repeated a maximum of three times and then enters withdrawal
  3. Another contagious period of 12 to 24 sim-hours where the sim shows negative signs of the disease
    • After which a check is performed to see whether the sim has resisted the strain
    • If not resisted, this period is repeated a maximum of three times
  4. Finally, the sim resists the disease
    • Note: That a stronger strain can now start the process from the beginning
