WORK IN PROGRESS CHEMICAL PAGE OVERHAUL! MEANT TO SAVE MY WORK.

This guide will primarily be useful for chemists but may come in handy to any player and especially traitors.


What's all this new stuff then?

Confused by all the new strange stuff? Where's your tricordazine? Recently, we added a whole bunch of special chemicals, mostly taken from Goonstation. These are either weaker, more specialised, or vastly more powerful than the old chems, usually being made in several stages. A few of the older chemicals have remained, but Tricord, Rytalin, Doctor's Delight, Dexalin, Bicaridine, Dex Plus, Kelotane, Dermaline, and more are all gone. Use the new ones.

Mixing these special chemicals often requires a new tool called the Chem Heater. With this, you enter a given temperature (in degrees Kelvin) to heat or cool a beaker and its reagents. This can sometimes result in dangerous reactions, so be careful!

Additionally, the chemical dispenser has four new reagents. Stable Plasma, Welding Fuel, Iodine, and Bromine.

Important: Chems in the heater will not mix until ejected. Be real careful when making the more volatile chemicals!


Chemicals

The building blocks of chemistry are aluminium, bromine, carbon, chlorine, copper, ethanol, fluorine, hydrogen, iodine, iron, lithium, mercury, nitrogen, oxygen, phosphorus, potassium, radium, silicon, silver, sodium, stable plasma, sugar, sulphur, sulphuric acid, and water. These can be produced from the Chem Dispenser in Chemistry.

You have all sorts of things here, and can make so much. You can make medicines, foam, flash powder, poisons, space lube, window hardener, and so much more. The limit on combinations is a limit that exists only in your creativity (and the game engine). Be sure to be careful though, mixing the wrong chemicals can be bad for your health and please make sure you know what a chemical does before you use it. Experiment at your own risk.

Some pure chemicals are lethal or will cause heavy toxin damage if injected or ingested in their pure form.

Grinding minerals from mining will also get you:

The NanoMed Plus is your main source of generic toxin.


Active Pure Chemicals

A.K.A. what happens when you eat these. Chemicals unmentioned don't have any effect.

  • Chlorine: Causes minor physical damage to various body parts.
  • Ethanol: The most potent alcoholic "beverage", with the fastest toxicity.
  • Fluorine: Causes minor toxin damage.
  • Lithium: Causes twitching, drooling, moaning and not being able to walk straight.
  • Mercury: Causes brain damage, twitching, drooling, moaning and not being able to walk straight.
  • Radium: Causes irradation.
  • Sugar: Gives nutrition.
  • Sulphuric Acid: Causes minor toxin damage and instant brute damage to one body part when ingested. Destroys head-wear and causes burn damage when sprayed on someone.
  • Plasma: Causes major toxin damage.
  • Uranium: Causes slight irradiation.
  • Toxin: Causes moderate toxin damage.

Narcotics

Narcotics are highly addicitve drugs that can aggressively, or passively, provide a benefit. Be wary as its very easy to become addicted, or overdose, on a narcotic.

As a general rule of thumb, the more of a positive effect (or any effect) a narcotic can provide, the easier it is to get addicted or overdose on it.

People who overdose or get addicted to Narcotics tend to usually end up dying to the negative effects or requiring immedient medical attention. Take in moderation.

Beyond the Dispenser

Just because it isn't found in the dispenser or the guide above doesn't mean you can't use it! Holy water, slime cores and plenty of other things can provide limitless fun for an enterprising and curious chemist.
