Not all injuries are equal; pharmacist prescribes the right medicine for the job.

Does not require a new save game Can safely be enabled in an ongoing save-game, disabling will cause a one-time error message upon loading the save again for the first time. The error message is mostly harmless.

Pharmacist allows you to set the maximum level of medicine that may be used for certain treatments. Doctors will use the best medicine that is available, and that is at most the level of the targets’ medical care setting and the pharmacists’ advice. Four levels of injuries are distinguished;

- Minor (bruises, non-lethal diseases, small cuts)
- Major (larger cuts, potentially lethal diseases)
- Life-Threathening (extreme bleeding, heart attacks, etc.)
- Operations (all implants, harvesting, etc.)

The Pharmacists’ advice for each of these can be set for Colonists, Guests, Prisoners and Animals separately with the ‘Pharmacist’ button on the main bar.

Doctors out on the rim treat wounds in batches, and use the same medicine for each treatment in a batch. I did not want to confuse them too much, so I’ve left that behaviour intact. That means that the worst injury determines what medicine is used for the whole batch, and doctors may still use Glitterworld medicine for treating a bruise if they were treating a heart attack at the same time.

As far as I know, the mod should be compatible with everything. Mods that directly alter the available number of medical care options may cause issues, and I think I’ve seen such a mod at one point, but I’ve been unable to find it again. If you find any incompatibilities, please let me know!

I’m not quite happy with the UI yet, but for now it’s functional. If you have suggestions, I’m always willing to listen.

Some injuries might be diagnosed wrong, and receive medicine that is either not good enough or too good. If the treatment is too good, make sure that it wasn’t part of a batch treatment (see above). If the treatment is not good enough, that’s a bigger problem, and I’d like to know about what injuries are diagnosed badly.

@Fluffy is it possible to move the UI in "Mods Settings" panel ?

With the Royalty DLC, blood rot ends up killing my quest prisoners because I leave minor wounds on "Doctor care, but no medicine." so my doctors never use medicine to tend it even if it's major and climbing. I assume because it has no immunity factor?

@Lustique; yay, false alarms are the best alarms!
@Posh Octavia; yeah, I hate it when Heisenbugs strike. If it happens again, don't forget to share that log!

Ok, this seems to be a false alarm. The pharmacist mod isn't even included in this particular modlist…

@Fluffy: I'm currently bisecting a modlist because I get CTDs with the list I'd like to use, and I just happened upon an error I didn't see before (i.e. also not with more [!] mods), that seems to be related to Pharmacist. Whenever I try to click the debug menu options (or debug loggin menu, but that's no captured in the log), I get an error and nothing happens. HugsLib: https://gist.github.com/HugsLibRecordKeeper/de390bb51871350f7bb79c9448b1af95 If you don't immediately see what's wrong, I can try to do a proper bug report, and check my modlist properly beforehand (so don't waste too much time on this), although all dependencies should be fulfilled, and so on…

its mysteriously working fine now, i swear these glitches are like sasquatches

@Posh Octavia; please follow the instructions on how to report a bug linked to in the description. While anecdotal evidence can help pin down a problem, I really need at least the player.log.

oddly, while theyre ignoring everything to waste the best possible medicine on unimportant prisoner surgeries, a colonist i had accidently set to herbal medicine was dutifully getting brain surgery with it
Posh Octavia May 22 @ 1:59am 
it doesn't seem to work, I've disabled surgery uses best available in the menus, I've set prisoners to never use anything better than herbal medicine, but my doctors are still ignoring the herbal medicine freezer and walking over to the colonist hospital to grab the glitterworld medicine and i have to manually forbid everything if i want them to use herbal medicine anyway

@Angelin01 RIMMSqol can allow you to reorder or hide tabs (it even lets you add up to three roll-ups/drop-downs for reducing menu clutter). https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1084452457
