There's a bunch of new diseases in the latest rimworld alpha. Is it possible to cure gut worms?


Yes. There are two ways to do this.

Gut worms will eventually go away with repeated treatment. This is slow and takes a lot of medicine, but will work. Eventually.

Alternatively, you can amputate the colonist's stomach. This will remove the worms. A colonist can survive without a stomach, but they will eat extremely slowly as a result. This is probably a bad idea as you can't harvest or buy stomachs; replacing it is very difficult.

  • Will all the new diseases eventually go away like for instance "muscle parasites"? – Kit Sunde Apr 9 '16 at 17:29

    @KitSunde As far as I know, this applies to all the new diseases. Both the repeated treatment and the amputation. – Studoku Apr 9 '16 at 17:32
  • With the version 0.15.1284 you can't harvest stomach so amputating one from your colonist is not the best idea. – pagep Nov 19 '16 at 1:00
  • Where does the "harvest stomach" idea come from? AFAIK it's not possible in vanilla. – Konerak Nov 28 '17 at 7:31

    @Konerak Assumptions and not realising that stomachs couldn't be harvested or bought. Editing now. – Studoku Dec 3 '17 at 8:50
