    Status system changes:
    With the rework to statuses, we intend to provide a clearer structure, which is not only more intuitive and meaningful, but allows us to really hone in on what makes each status effect different. Two main steps have been taken to this effect:
    1. Main negative statuses are now divided into 6 main categories:
      • Wound: Overall easy to deal with. health draining effects which may devolve into worse matters if left unchecked.
      • Disease: Dangerous statuses which precipitate the subject’s death
      • Infection: Self-preserving afflictions that wear the player out.
      • Toxin: Short lived, mild effects which evolve into pernicious diseases.
      • Temperature: The usual hot and cold effects. As body temperature becomes more and more extreme, so do these effects.
      • Radiation: The usual radiation effects. As radiation builds up, these start to kick in.
    2. Negative statuses’ progression has been streamlined, so it is more clear for players what is coming next.

    ====

    Items:

    Following the same line as with the statuses, Consumable Items in charge to heal them have also been revamped towards the new system. Two main changes have been implemented to this effect:
    1. Each line of items is now related with a Status category, and as the items themselves increase in potency, so does the maximum Tier which they are able to cure.
      • Example: Antibiotic Pill heals any Tier 1 Infection, while the stronger Antibiotic Injection is able to cure both Tier 1 and Tier 2 Infections.
    2. Sometimes players will get advanced effects (Tier 2 or even Tier 3 ones) which they are not prepared for yet. These instances could feel pretty frustrating, since the player may have some consumable which is related to that status, but is not strong enough to cure it by itself.
    In order to ease these situations a bit, we are introducing Status Modifiers, which allow certain, lower tier consumables to ease the effects of statuses they may not be able to heal by themselves. This way, we hope that players feel like they still have a chance, even in those pesky situations where you are intoxicated and don’t have an injection at hand.

    We hope that items are not only well adjusted to the status changes, but also to make it easier for players to identify which Consumable to use for each occasion

    The zany octopus Alien Parasites icon is not really intuitive, other than that a good looking set of changes at first glance - especially the colour coding affliction types for the meds.

    I'm not sure if this is exactly practical, but if the 4 medical devices are intended to cure one of the 4 (or 5 with radiation?) types of ailments, would it be possible to get a color cue on the devices themselves to indicate which you should use? Something like a color band around a part, or tinting the blue parts to their respective ailment colors. Not anything that would majorly detract from personalizing their frame colors, just enough to quickly pick the right one by eye.

    Build 3639 (1.7.1.1) Check the medkits and bandage, not updated properly to handle the new system, seems being some mixup.
    A matching medkit should stop any type of issues, that is no need for bandages or a second medic whatever.
    Also maybe most creatures should not give issues that need a medkit or injection right away, ought to take some time that an issue develops to the next phase/level.
