One line summary of your issue
[3.1.1] Cannot Seek Treatment for Symptom That Won't Go Away

Game Version
3.1.1

What expansions do you have installed?
All of the above

Do you have mods enabled?
Yes, but none that affect the checksum.

Please explain your issue is in as much detail as possible.
My current ruler (the Khagan of the Mongol Empire) has the symptom trait Chest Pains (he already had it when he inherited the rulership), which seems neither to want to go away nor to progress into an actual disease. I have a Court Physician, but cannot Seek Treatment through the Intrigue screen because the game thinks I have recently been treated - I have not.

Steps to reproduce the issue.
Load my save and observe the traits on my character, as well as the inability to Seek Treatment through the Intrigue screen.

This thread is more than 5 months old.

It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose. If you feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.

This bug killed my ruler and kicked me down to Khan because his heir was a child at the time. Fantastic.

On the other hand, it led to me discovering this bug.

A user in the Paradox Community Discord server noticed that my Chest Pains-stricken ruler did have a flag in the save file for recent treatment - however, he must have already had this when he inherited the throne (since he already had the symptom then and I tried to treat him ASAP, which I found I couldn't do) and he lingered about another ten years, stuck in this state all the while being unable to be treated and not progressing to an actual disease.

Just had this bug pop up again, in a completely different playthrough.

This character (Banebshen Nirmala of Gujarat) came to power suffering from the symptom Chest Pains already and has no treatment modifiers, but the game thinks she has been recently treated and will not allow further treatment. The symptom will also neither go away, nor progress to an actual disease. It'll just sit there until it kills her. Save attached.

Just for the record for devs and and modders looking to fix it, the issue is that the "disease_not_serious" flag is not actually set for event RIP.5005 (the event that adds Chest Pains and determines whether it's a sign of a developing disease or if it's not serious and will just remain a symptom without a disease).

Right, but if you look at similar events for the other symptoms, you will notice that they all set the flag "disease_not_serious" if the symptom is not meant to develop into a disease. This is important because it's one of the flags that is checked for when determining whether you are eligible for getting your symptoms treated. The Chest Pains version of the event is missing the line that sets this flag, which means that even though Chest Pains can last a really long time without developing into a disease, they do not set the flag that lets the person receive symptom treatment for them.

Right, I see what you mean.

That's also intentional, though. See the comment down toward the bottom there? Where it only lasts 30-90 days?

Code:
                               set_character_flag = disease_not_serious #only protected from other illness if this is a short term effect

They obviously intentionally excluded that flag from the longer-lasting Chest Pains cases. It's not a very good solution in my opinion, because I think characters should be able to get symptom treatment for long-term Chest Pains, but it does appear to be WAI.

The game blocks you from getting treatment for it with the message "recently received treatment", which is clearly a bug regardless of whether the rest is WAI.

  • Sword of the Stars
  • Tyranny: Archon Edition
The game blocks you from getting treatment for it with the message "recently received treatment", which is clearly a bug regardless of whether the rest is WAI.

Still noticing this bug in the current version. Please fix.
