    Personally, I think Creatures 2 is the best. Especially with all the downloadable extras!

    Does anyone know what all the 'unnamed chemicals' do? They were referred to by number e.g <102> in creatures 2 and by the name 'unknownase' in creatures 3. I've tried most of them, they don't seem to affect the norns, ettins or grendels in any way...

    Since I'm doing chemistry and biology AS, I know what most of the other chemicals do.

    Chemicals to avoid (or 'Must Use' chemicals if you're feeling sadistic!)

    Creatures 2:
    Belladona
    Cyanide
    Glycotoxin
    Geddonase (large amounts, in small amounts it can be used as medicine)
    Sleep and fever toxins
    Heavy metals

    Creatures 3:
    all the above, plus ATP Decoupler (this stuff is REALLY nasty)
    Also, alcohol is more dangerous in this version, it was virtually harmless in Creatures 2.

    Useful Hints: To make your creatures live to twice the average age (my record is 19 hours old 47 minutes and still healthy), Inject them with life chemical whenever they are running out. This chemical does not cure diseases, just controlls life expectancy.

    Also, (creatures 2 only), to re-incarnate a creature who is about to die so that they are newborn again, put them in the gene splicer on their own and activate it.

    Tips for dealing with creatures' health problems (Creatures 2 again):

    Heart problems: check Adipose Tissue level. If it is above half, give them small amounts of geddonase. Adipose tissue is important in small amounts, but can cause Heart disease if there is too much. AVOID BELLADONNA AT ALL COSTS!

    Breathing problems: If the problem is breathing in, inject with oxygen and... Ammonia(!) Don't ask why, but it works! repeat every 3 minutes. If the problem is breathing out, inject with dissolved CO2 and ammonia, repeat every 2 minutes.
    This can get boring, but I always try to make creatures survive at least an hour no matter what their illness.

    Brain problems: Avoid Mushrooms, hitting creature, injecting Tryptophan or alcohol, and make sure you don't fire neurons at it's brain!!!

    Spleen problems: Inject with all eight antibodies, and keep topping them up every hour or so.

    Okay, but I'll still post helpful hints in case someone shows up later!

    Cures: (Creatures 2 + 3)

    Sodium Thiosulphate; cures cyanide poisoning
    EDTA; cures heavy metal poisoning
    Antibodies; stop antigens
    Glycogen Recoupler; cures glycogen poisoning

    Creatures 3 only:
    ADP Recoupler; cures ATP decoupler poisoning
    anti-oxidant; cures carbon monoxide poisoning
