Post by: Noah on November 29, 2010, 09:28:03 PM
I managed to search through the old OpenTH comments and discovered that I set up a gmail account a while back about disease ideas. I found the list, tell me what ya think:

Flash Syndrome (Originally Suggested by Noah)
Symptoms: Cause patients to do everything in lightning pace.
Animation: Patients run really really fast
Cure: Run on the Cardiogram and/or Hampster Wheel
Cure Room: Cardiogram or Hampster Wheel (new room [Clinic])

Santa Claus Syndrome (Originally Suggested by OpenTH)
Symptoms: Causes patients to dress up as Santa and begin to believe that they are really Santa Claus
Animation: Patient dresses up as Santa / Santa-looking
Occurs: Only between Oct - Mar
Cure (2-part) : Cardiogram to lose weight and then Psychiatrist Room to convice your not really Santa Claus.
Cure Room: Psychiatrist Room and Cardiogram.

Double Agent Syndrome (Originally Suggested by Alex)
Symptoms: Patients would constantly lie about who they really were.
Animated : No custom animation
Cure: Must enter into a Lie-Detector to discover the truth
Cure Room: Lie-dectector (new room [clinic])

Helvetica Scenario (Originally Suggested by Silva)
Caused by the side-effect of the collapse of a calcium molecule
Symptom: Patient loses (literally) his face
Animated: Patient could possibly have no face
Cure: A nurse must prepare a mixture of honey and milk to attract the queen atom back to it
Title: Re: Disease suggestions

They seem nice but I don't like the idea of using diagnostic equipment to cure patients
Title: Re: Disease suggestions
Post by: Noah on November 29, 2010, 09:51:09 PM
Psychiatrist Room is already used as both a diagnostic and treatment room. I don't see why you can't expand that to other rooms.

It also could give the option to say "only send patients to this room to be cured" or "only send patients to this room to be diagnoised" or be able to set a percentage. It could add an interesting gameplay addition

Name: Severe facial acne.
Cause: Being a full time gamer, sitting in the dark playing hospital games around the clock!

I was thinking of developing a "deflation clinic" for patients with extreme fatness. The patient lies down face forward on a table. A doctor inserts a tube in a place where you really would not want a tube to be, and then the expelled gas is burned off as the patient is cured. (It will be a good idea to have a fire extinguisher in this room). Additionally the inflation clinic could also be used to cure "pig headedness" and the hair restoration clinic could be used to cure "messy hair", various forms of "strange hairstyle" and "nits". I also need new animations for "butterflies in the stomach", which become visible after surgery, and new graphics for "pregnancy". Mothers cured of pregnancy will be accompanied by a wailing baby (or is it an alien?), so new sound files will be needed for this.

For Double Agent Syndrome, I would have the lie detector as a diagnostic room, and cure would be carried out by a psychiatrist.

The psychiatrist could also cure shopaholics. We need new graphics for people with this syndrome. I think a woman with a mink coat, jewellery, shiny red shoes, and lots of shopping bags.
Title: Re: Disease suggestions
Post by: snowblind on January 27, 2011, 02:53:54 PM
Some new diseases could be set for a longer stay, e.g. a psychotic patient that visits the psychiatrist, then sleeps a while in the ward, and repeats this until he is cured.
Title: Re: Disease suggestions
Post by: markhobley on January 28, 2011, 10:58:19 PM
We could possible have a stretching rack as a new clinic. This could be used to cure shortness and teenagism (turning the teenager into a full sized adult).
Title: Re: Disease suggestions
Post by: markhobley on January 28, 2011, 11:25:41 PM
How about a back to earth clinic (requires a psychiatrist) that looks a lot like sick bay on the enterprise to cure trekkies of their obsession for wearing star trek costumes and uniforms?

What about a music clinic to cure people who have a bad taste in music?

Or maybe we could have a fashion clinic to cure people who wear grey, city suits, or dress as a gothic.

We also need to cure "speed freaks" obsessed with cars or motorbikes. These people could leave a motorbike outside the hospital entrance. Those that are delivering a pizza to the staff room or flowers to one of the nurses probably don't need treatment of course.
Title: Re: Disease suggestions
Post by: tobylane on January 28, 2011, 11:44:52 PM
Nice ones mark, do you want to start on the graphics? You have so many varied ideas, maybe make graphics for all of them?
Title: Re: Disease suggestions
Post by: markhobley on January 30, 2011, 11:51:00 PM
Yeah. We need an export on the graphics, and a body for the doctor. I was thinking of colour coding the uniforms and adding pocket stripes to indicate skills. I am also thinking of having both male and female doctors.

Oh boy, this is fun! And this is only stuff for the Pharmacy. If people enjoy these, I can embark on the Psychiatrist's collection.


Name: Festering Ryoma.

Cause: No known cause, Ryoma just appears.

Symptoms: This is pretty much the most disgusting thing ever. Nobody likes waking up slick with Ryoma.

Cure: A trained psychiatrist must first deal with the trauma of Ryoma. The patient is then referred to the pharmacy where a cocktail of antibiotics, antivirals, antifungals and soap is administered.

Path: GP ? Psy ? GP ? Pharma

Notes: Inspired by this comic that made me feel a bit ill. I hope Ryoma isn't trademarked! http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=431 (http://www.qwantz.com/index.php?comic=431)

Symptoms: Uncomfortably warm and chafey crotch.

Cure: A nurse gives the patient a chilled extract of cold cream to drink, and an ice pack to take home.

Path: GP ? G. Diag. ? Cardio ? GP ? Pharm

Notes: Obviously sufferers are exclusively male. The use of the Cardio is cruel and unusual punishment.



Name: Malodorous Secretions

Cause: Patient has forsaken normal diet in favour of home-grown produce.

Symptoms: Patient's humours reek like a mix of goat's cheese, garlic and manure.

Cure: A nurse forces the patient to drink a potion containing extracts of non-organic peppermint, eucalyptus and citrus oils.

Path: GP ? Blood Machine ? GP ? Pharm

Notes: Pretty standard. Possibly patient comes covered in brown and green stains and disarrayed hair like an overworked doctor.

Cause: Amateur yoga sessions.

Symptoms: Patient's connective tissues are loose, floppy and unresponsive.

Cure: Patient must drink a tonic of molten rubber to re-elasticate the tissues.

I am thinking that some patients may be in such a state that a lightning flash occurs in their toilet cubicle followed by a rumbling noise
of relief. We obviously need new animations and sounds for this.

After reading about the Santa Clause idea, I think seasonal diseases are funny and good... worth working on them!

Hare Complex - Spring, during Mar- May
Cause: Too many egg hunts during the easter days
Symptoms: wears a huge bunny costume.
Cure: The patient must be radically freed from the costume. After a psychic consultation and scanner diagnosis confirmed that the costume ist't attached to the limbs or vital organs in any way, the costume is electrolyted away - once and for all. Leaving the smell of burnt fur and permanent aversion for anything connected with hares, bunnies or eggs.

Beach Peacock - Summer, during Jun - Aug
Cause: Too many episodes of Jersey Shore and spin-offs causing the DNA to shift to "Jersey" (like in the one South Park episode ^^ (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/It%27s_a_Jersey_Thing))
Symptoms: wears only shorts (men) or bikinis (women)
Cure: The cardio machine is used to power the patients out, Hair restoration takes care of the bad hair style and the DNA fixer removes the bad gene.
Path: GP, Cardio, Hair restore, DNA fixer

Craft-oh-mania - Autumn / Fall, during Sep - Nov
Cause: Too many sweets and pumpkin pie during Halloween
Symptoms: wears a witch / Wizard costume and murmurs "spells".
Cure: After a blood test confirmed too much sugar in the body the patient is sent to the pharmacy where he or she gets a very bitter "potion" consisting of spider legs and eel eyes - causing them to vomit all the candy out!
Afterwards the patient must be convinced that their appearence gives bad reputation to "real" witches and for their sake they should take off the costume.
Path: GP, blood machine, Pharmacy, Psyche (treatment)
[Referes to "The Craft" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Craft_%28film%29)]

Well... I like it! ^^
But there's a thing that came up my mind too: for such things as seasonal diseases the Calendar should run a little slower. Three month is like a minute play. It not just awfully unrealistic - I know a game doesn't have to be but come on sitting like 6 month around at a hospital for a cough??? - its a little hectic. But that's just my two cents.

Some rooms need to be used more. I like the idea to use the research department for a cure.

Bieber fever?
Bieber Fever
Cause: You became to populair, to young, to fast.
Symptoms: The urge to pull off your shirt and show your tummy to everyone and a stylish (?) hairdo that defies gravity.
Cure: A trained psychiatrist must convince you that your songs s*ck big time and that no one wants to see you boyish sixpack. Your hair has to be removed in the hair restauration, because no human invention would be able to get it back to normal. But oh well... It'll grow back.

Post by: Joe on July 04, 2013, 11:59:25 PM
Name: Temporal Dislocation
Cause: Meeting future self.
Cure: A doctor tells the patient to step into a time machine and then uses this machine to cure the patient by slowing down the rate of their temporal jumps (disappearing into the future/past and then reappearing with a different appearance) until their temporal jumps cease.
Diagnostic process: GP's office, psychiatrist, scanner
Would require: new animations/graphics and sounds.

Untreated appearance ideas: I think the patient's appearance should occasionally change when they've had a temporal jump:

Name: Gaming Addict
Cause: Playing too much Corsix TH.
Cure: Hypnotherapy: a psychiatrist straps the gaming addict to a metal frame (could remove a VR visor/virtual boy from their head) then pulls out their eye balls (Clock Work Orange style (http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-tczO0BcyGzM/TpXg-8mrPFI/AAAAAAAAB-E/Q0W17fTYzps/s1600/clockwork-orange.jpg)) and then walks over to a console and uses it to turn on a black on white hypnotising wheel.
Diagnostic process: GP's office,psychiatrist
Would require: new animations/graphics and new psychiatrist room objects.

Name: Phantom Limb.
Cause: Constantly sticking hands into holes in walls and pretending they're being bitten off.
Symptoms: Invisible extremities.
Cure: Random assortment of placebos with mild soporific, plus a follow up appointment to correct sense of humour.

Name: Funny Bones.
Cause: Unexpectedly painful corners on furniture.
Symptoms: An almost total loss of motor control in the arms.
Cure: Surgical replacement of all humorous bones.

Name: Hyperchondria.
Cause: Frequent self diagnosis.
Symptoms: The patient will genuinely gain every symptom of illness that they see or hear about.*
Cure: Cocktail of antibiotics followed by a lecture on seeking professional advice in future.
*Visually the patient will take on the same appearance of any sick people they come near to, e.g - if they pass a person with Serious Radiation they will turn green, if they pass someone with Fractured Bones they will return to normal but be wrapped in bandages etc.

I think we should keep well clear of the ones that nobody is going to get in five years (Bieber fever). There are also loads like that which could be handled by Psychology without a need for extra rooms.

Name: Gaseous Turpitude
Cause: Eating year-old chilli from fast-food outlets.
Symptoms: Patient is prone to sudden noxious windy guffs that engulf patients in the corridors and make them puke.
Cure: Nurse administers a jug of prune juice, patient rushes to toilet.

Alt cure (funnier) a doctor attaches a massive gas extractor to the patient's rump (could be in the surgery) and sucks the nasty wiffs right out of them. (expect funny faces) Gas is sold to the practical joke industry.

Superfandom (would require multiple graphics for different patients to make it less monotonous).

Causes: Watching the same Cult Classic films and drinking too much cola, leading to them believing they have morphed into the lead.

Cure: A Pharmacist gives a potent, slightly radioactive solution and the Psychiatrist gives them a firm talking too.

Rooms: GP, General Diagnosis, Psych, Nurse, Psych.
