Sensory mechanites are a mechanite disease which brings mild pain in early stages but boosts sensory perception. This disease does not kill the patient, but still produces intense pain.

Important note: Treatment does not cure the disease, it only prevents the pain and tiredness from worsening. Instead it must be waited out. .

Sensory mechanites incapacitate pawns with the Wimp trait from the onset of the disease. While the buffs are slightly less because of the Consciousness reduction from the pain, the base +50% sight, hearing talking and manipulation buffs mean this disease can actually be advantageous if the pain and rest fall rate can be managed. Note that the disease should still be treated even if it is to be exploited, as the benefits do not increase without treatment, only the pain, and treatment does not hasten the end of the disease.
