Talk:Infection Suggestions

From The Urban Dead Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

This page includes both the definiton of the skill and the suggestions for the future. IMO, somebody should clean it up, and separate the suggestions from the definition of the skill itself. Right now, somebody who types in "infection" is going to see a bunch of suggestions that are not actually in the game, and that can be a big confusing. --Daranz-Talk 21:15, 25 Sep 2005 (BST)

Perhaps it should redirect to the zombie skills page? We could simply move this page to something like Suggestions:Infection. That would probably help avoid confusion. --Raelin 21:34, 25 Sep 2005 (BST)
Done. I renamed "Infection" to Infection Suggestions and added a new Infection page. I moved the Status Quo section to the factual page. --mortimer shank 19:21, 27 Sep 2005 (BST)

Other ways to be infected?

I have, for a few times, stood up after revivcation just to notice tht I'm infected (evem though I might have not even been in contact with zeds for a while). Is it just that infection doesn't work on zombies, and will just surface once the infected zombie is revived, or there something odd here. And if the infection stays from zombification, why doesn't it stay if you die from it, and be revived again? fdsgdf, I don't know, awaiting awnsers --William Raker 15:00, 12 May 2006 (BST)

Your hypothesis is correct, in my experience. A human who has an infection and dies (from whatever cause) is still infected as a zombie, they just suffer no damage from infection. In fact, an un-infected zombie who gets bitten by a zombie will become infected- again, with no damge suffered. However, a zombie that is infected, when revived, is STILL infected, and (being human) continues to take damage. Note that using a FAK on a zombie WILL cure thier infection, so a good tech should heal and THEN revive. --S.Wiers X:00 03:42, 10 February 2007 (UTC)
I didn't know zombies could pick up infections while they're zombies. You learn something new everyday. With regards to healing before reviving, I'm not convinced it's worth it, because using a FAK and then reviving means there's no healing benefit from the FAK, and a few first aid kits will be wasted on un-infected zeds. Better to just revive and let people heal themselves, IMO. --Toejam A Stats Graph 01:49, 7 September 2007 (BST)

Who Can Be Infected

Only humans should be infected by this, IMO. It's a bit silly for the undead to be affected by disease, isn't it?

Not really...they're (semi-)living organisms too...they can catch disease as well as we can. In fact, zombies' immune systems are probably shut down, due to their lack of cranial functioning. Adam Readman 16:47, 24 March 2007 (UTC)
True, but it doesn't mean anything: they're already dead, so it doesn't really inhibit their functioning. GuesssWho 18:31, 24 March 2007 (UTC)

Something New?

You lost 1HP to your infection. You have 9HP remaining.--Karekmaps?! 21:00, 2 April 2008 (BST)

Asprin shouldn't cut it

I think there should be a secondary cure for a zombie bite infection. If the infection was new for zombies, don't you think a new cure would have to be made? P.S: Suffering from infection as I type.

Isn't something like this what the Suggestions pages are for? --•▬ ▬••▬ • •••• •▬ ▬•▬• ▬•▬ #nerftemplatedsigs 17:58, 18 July 2010 (BST)
