How much do we include?

Should we have every single mixable chemical on this list, or should we leave them semi-secret? I think we should include everything, but I notice that some chems are missing and I don't know if it's on purpose or accidental. For example, colorful reagent is missing.

All mixable chemicals should be included, otherwise this gives an in-game advantage for people who can read the code. Kosmos (talk) 23:11, 22 February 2015 (EST)


If we're looking for a more compact look, this style would be the most compact while being informative, easy to navigate and also makes possible to sorting them with "Treatment for".

Name Formula Treatment for Description
Alkysine 1 part Anti-Toxin
1 part Chlorine
1 part Nitrogen
Neurological damage Lessens the damage to neurological tissue, effective even after catastrophic injury. Used for treating brain damage (results in 2 units instead of 3).
Anti-Toxin /
1 part Nitrogen
1 part Potassium
1 part Silicon
Toxin damage, broad spectrum Also known as Dylovene. A broad-spectrum anti-toxin, which treats toxin damage in the blood stream.
Arithrazine 1 part Hyronalin
1 part Hydrogen
Toxin damage A very unstable medication used to treat the most extreme cases of radiation poisoning. May cause some internal damage to the patient, but such damage is easily treatable.

It looks nice... but the Formula column is too thin. Anyway my idea was to somehow clearly state when a chemical's react takes place. For example a standard label on all the chemicals that immediately reacts apron mixing, like Metal Foam and Explosion. A bit more information than just a non-standard description.
Sounds excellent. I'll be sure to help you out if you ever get started on the thing. Kosmos (talk) 05:52, 26 January 2015 (EST)
Is it ok if I edit your temp page? Have a few ideas, and yours is a little out of date too. My main idea would be to change your "Treatment for" column to "Used for", "Common use" or "Uses" just like we have on all items. That way the column is useful for nonmedical chemicals too. - Deantwo (talk) 04:05, 2 February 2015 (EST)

Recipe Sorting

The list of recipes really should be sorted alphabetically. The categories are ok though, so just sorting inside the categories. - Deantwo (talk) 13:32, 25 January 2015 (EST)

Do you mean just switching the places of current chems to match alphabetical order, or are you talking about making them into a table like the suggestion above? Kosmos (talk) 01:31, 26 January 2015 (EST)
I was thinking of the current system. I may have some ideas for a new system as well thought, and I'll post those above when I have them flushed out. - Deantwo (talk) 01:36, 26 January 2015 (EST)

Add redirects here for all chems listed

We should continually maintain redirects to this page from all of the chem names listed, that way a player can click the wiki button in-game and type in any chemical they want the recipe for, and if that chemical is on this page, they will get a recipe. --JJRcop (talk) 06:46, 3 March 2018 (UTC)
