Ripped sheets, otherwise referred to as a rag (sterilized rag, dirty rag), is a medical item used in tailoring.

Usage

First aid

Main article: First Aid

Basic usage

Ripped sheets can be used to stop bleeding caused by injuries that manage to break the skin. It can be used if the wound is a scratch, bite, gunshot, stitch, glass, bleeding, deep, infected or burn and will stop bleeding entirely. After some time, depending on the wound, the ripped sheet will become a dirty rag, which once removed will grant the player some first aid experience.

When bandaging a wound, ripped sheets function the same as a bandage, with the ripped sheets weighing half the weight and only having half the bandage power compared to the medical bandage.

Wound infection

If a bleeding wound is left untreated, the player will continue to lose health until they eventually die. Leaving a wound untreated can also lead to it becoming infected depending on the player's clothing, the type of wound and whether a dirty rag is left on. A dirty rag can be left on a wound to stop the bleeding, however this will give the wound the highest possible chance of becoming infected. It should be noted that infection does not affect healing rates, but having wound untreated while you change your bandages does, therefore its advised to not remove rags once applied, even if they get dirty.

An infected wound can be treated by applying a sterilized rag to the wound. Sterilized rags have the same rate of becoming dirty as ripped sheets.

Fracture

A ripped sheet can be used to create a splint when combined with a plank, tree branch, or sturdy stick. A splint reduces the time taken to heal a fracture.

Fire starting

Ripped sheets can be used to start a fire or as a fuel.

Tailoring

Main article: Tailoring
