To create a doctor sign simply place a sign with [doctor] on second line, it will then turn into the sign on the right. You will need permission to create this sign.

Right clicking the sign will cure a player. If you have vault and an economy plugin you can set the price the doctor sign charges for healing the player in the disease config. (doctorFee: 0)

Immunity System:

live in a cold climate and keep getting pneumonia? well fear not we now have immunity

  • Each time you contract a disease you build up an immunity to it
  • when you catch a disease your immune system takes a hit so immunity for other diseases will reduce
  • Death reduces your immunity.. as its not good for your health
  • Higher immunity reduces chance of catching a disease
  • 100% immunity will result in being immune to a disease

Basically if your house is in the desert or in cold lands, your immunity will build to any disease that is prevalent in that area, till you are not affected anymore. go out abroad though and you will still be affected by diseases you are not used to.. contracting those will effect your immune system even for the diseases you may be immune to.

Vaccinations: To increase immunity to one particular disease you are able to craft vaccinations to use on yourself or other players. to do this just craft a Syringe, you can then craft a syringe with a curative potion you have made to turn it into a vaccination injection for that disease. Just use it on yourself or another player to increase the immunity level to that disease.


Biological Warfare:

Viruses have long been a terrible weapon that can bring despair and misery to a foe, by using a syringe to extract blood from an infected player you can then place it in a glass bottle or imbue an arrow head with the lethal concoction, by putting the two together in a crafting bench.

This will give you a splash Disease vial. throwing at the enemy or shooting it into their castle has a chance of infecting players caught in the splash hurting them instantly and giving a chance of disease infection.

Or it will give you a diseased arrow which when fired at an enemy gives a chance of infecting the victim if the arrow pierces their skin

Protect your troops by vaccinating them against biological attack.

Note not all diseases can be placed into thrown vials or put on arrows.
