the vaccine creator
load a blood sample in with a syringe and give it a few seconds
it'll create a single use vaccine that you then inject yourself with
this way you can release a virus and be immune to your own death plague

We don't need to make releasing meme viruses easier.

this is incredibly easy to do if youre already the viro, if you buy it you may as well be wasting TCs

I lay my eyes upon!!! Can you believe this!? Disgracing my name in multiple ways within the mere span of a few MINUTES!!!! I tell him "NO NI[B][B]A," he laughs. I inform him, "I'M GOING TO GET BWOINKED FOR THIS," as a joke referencing rule 8. To which PEE KAY PENGUIN, THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SECOND OF HIS CLASS, immediately bwoinks me, informing me "Yes, that is correct. You are currently being private messaged by me, PKPenguin, mastermind behind the /tg/station headmin triumvirate. Prepare to be banned, plebian. *smirks* ...and it looks like you've already had your final warning. *begins booting up ban cannon* Any last words...?" I am shocked by this statement. I voted for this man in the headmin election, I'm supposed to have ban immunity from him!!! The power has gone to his head!!! After a few seconds that feel as if they last forever, I remain silent -- frozen under the prowess of extreme shock and awe. "No...? Heh, well then... *eye glows blue* Into the trash it goes!" Not even 5 seconds after I read this final message, my PC shuts off. I'm literally shaking at this point, not knowing whether I am going to live to see tomorrow. I just got off the phone with my mom, informing her that we may not see each other for a while. She was confused, and starting to get scared -- so I just had to hang up on her. I didn't want to put her through what you put me through today, PKPenguin321. You are a disgusting, vile creature -- and if you ever talk to me or my mom ever again, I WILL bring you down. Back down to where you came.

Can't you just inject yourself with any other virus, and then you wont be able to catch the death virus when you release it?

Better role-restricted item would be a random special disease.

Might be RIPLEY, Nanomachines, Beesease or any of the other meme diseases.

Yeah, give viro a special 40 tc crate. If another meme tator tot gives it to them, they have the chance of causing havoc. Xenos, lots of gluttony. Turning everyone into borgs. Y'know your ideas, It'd be romerol but more virology centered!! Quite the good amount of chaos since it could potentially involve 2-3 tators.

>wouldn't trade all your tc along with all of someone elses TC for a virus that could turn the entire crew into xenos? Give them GBS and explode them all? Or turn them all into borgies.

THIS WOULD BE MY HIJACK DREAM.

Make it 25 or 30 tc like romerol so it still needs another person but they still have some tc left over

I was going to say the xeno/borg thing is a reagent, not a virus, but they actually just apply a nontransmittable virus that actually does the transforming, so it could be a subtype of that

I would pay TC to get 1 bar of gold since you cant ever trust miners. You could even overprice it so that only stupid people like me would buy it.
It would be intresting to have asymptomatic infectees but i guess that would be overpowered. You could restrict a symptom to the uplink so traitor viruses are diffrent than some wizard round virology survivalist. Actually there isnt really any way to make viro have a “fair” role restricted item. I guess they could have a symptom that buffs their virus by 2 all around. 2 isnt significant but its something in comparison to other low level symptoms. It would make traitor viros more “effective” than normal viros.

Random virus for TC sounds like a better idea. Maybe two tiers of purchasable viruses. Maybe 10 TC for a meme virus, 25 TC for a deadly.

Also, I would like to point out that there IS an advanced surgery which makes the recipient immune to a virus but spread it as a normal infected person would. Why not make the surgery disk purchasable?
