So folks, it is once again that time of season when people are calling for the downfall of the great “autism forts”.
unfortunately I don’t hear alot of inspired talk there.
Fortunately @Ambiic had a pretty neat idea and I’m going to mash it up with one that I posted there too. I talk alot about N.T. H.R., So I guess it’s time to prove I can come up with abit of reorganization.
Though there is more to it than that.
ROLE MERGER: THE BIO TECH SPECIALIST.
A great option to get Virologists and Geneticists out of their boring little holes is make it instead one big interesting hole Give the Bio-tech specialist the same access and responsibilities as both the Virologists and Geneticists. This way when things are quiet, they have the time to poke mokes in ways nature and god utterly disapprove of, but when shit starts hitting the fan, they have a toolset that enables them to quash both death and disease.
Which given how hard it seems to pry these particular eggheads out of their laboratories due to the total compartmentalization of them, this may help.
The new ORG CHART.
a merger of roles is great and all, but there is another, a far more infamous keep
That god damn Chemist, who does nothing but sit in the chem lab doing nothing but making
thermite and meth synthflesh and cryoxadone in plain view of everyone.
to take a page out of those with time in SEC, a certain someone with an important job and special gaemr l00t also has a higher standing than their peers. yes, make the chemist middle management and effectively medbay’s warden
Medical doctors remain the ever applicable grunts of Medbay, like the officer is to security, while the Bio-tech specialist is similar to the detective, useful in more esoteric ways
as a total after thought, yeah, Psychologists remain pretty much in the equivalent place as lawyers.
New mechanical aspects
Here’s where coder bros start groaning, because now things are getting complicated, there are some more things in game that will need adjusting.
Additional tasks for Bio-tech specialists, these are mostly just house keeping things in medbay that are intended to get folks chewed out for negligence in their work and thusly keep them on their toes.
Additonal tasks include :
- ensure genetic/biological stability after cloning, by any means they deem fit.
- keep sanitary the cloning equipment (a tube that is meant to cultivate whole bodied persons has alot of human disease exposure, who’d known?)
- manufacturing DNA mutation injectors (it won’t be so simple any more).
Bigger, more generally applicable changes:
- DNA mutation-injectors would now use short lived Viruses to apply changes, thusly to field the injectors they must cultivate the viruses with their mutation. Basic round start Viruses only allow for 1 or 2 injections balanced on their power of affect. Good viruses can safely and stably deliver upto 4.
SUB SECTION - Bottle necks The key to balanced Mass production, Yes I approve of a pluming system that is less maintainance intensive for the chemist, letting the chemist go Big pharma and make MOAR chems than just what their Chem dispenser limits them to. BUT there need to be some bottle necks between him, his supreme tricordazine production and the general station public. These should work nicely for that, here’s their bullet list.
Centrifuge - various powerful meds no longer mix all by themselves and must be placed in the funny spin machine to be properly molecularly assembled. May also need prior heating too.
the death of the Pill press - This is the main means of mass deploying meds by those damn lazy chemists, axe it now packaging must be done at the Chem master. You can have your more impressive chemistry machines, but the deployment of their work is not an automatable factor anymore
Now if the chemist becoming middle management happens, Guess what? now he has underlings to help run his chemistry empire, some medical doctors are smart enough to run some plumbing if he or the CMO authorizes it, keep the compressed matter cartridges stocked in their machines ensure that the output is being delivered his desk or better yet directly to patients.
