RE: Unbanned/ unjobbanned
The guy you stunned, cuffed, dragged about the station, nearly cremated, dragged up to the bridge, and then lasered to death because “he was a nuisance” didn’t kill anyone, the CMO (if that’s who the guy is in the log, I can’t see the job title) attacked him with a saw first, you brigged him much earlier in the round (And were ahelped for supercopping him back then when the captain/sec officers were in the area) to the point where his timer would have expired and not jailbroke, armory was already raided, and only used a taser/flash after that point. The time between “I’m going to kill you”, which you said as soon as you arrested him in front of me, and my PMing you was several minutes.
Supercopping is bad. You’re bad. You’re a bad HoP, you’re a bad sec officer, you’re a bad head.
Lately it’s been more of a “if you’re not using a random name and appearance then don’t whine about meta-grudging” ruling, which includes Takara. Probably should add that to the rules.
That’s basically condoning metagrudging though…? Also Takara can apparently still set off bombs, so whoever told me something stopped him from doing that was in error.
Klay: If he’s raping people, just wall him into the room, release woodies or bears or something, and teleport out his victim.
On an unrelated note, since I’m fairly certain one of the other admins said some sort of code was in place to basically stop Takara from bombing, and that was his whole schtick as a griefer, is the Takara Is Free-For-All ruling still in effect?
RE: Unjobban from engi jobs
That’s ok, it was worth it. But as lovecraft said: “with the passing of strange aeons even indefinite may die”
You know what? I will make you a challenge. I keep wanting to write guides for jobs to try helping our players be less shit, but I’m extremely easily distracted and welcome the opportunity to outsource. If you write a good and thorough guide for Engineering Jobs (Complete with setting up the sing efficiently, power management, basic construction/deconstruction/repair knowledge, wiring, how to fuck and unfuck telecoms, unique traitor opportunities, the added responsibilities/perks of being CE, etc, etc, etc) and post it on the NoxiousNet SS13Wiki Guide Section, and I deem the guide acceptible (Which may result in me pestering you to edit/add to/revise it until I am satisfied) I will unjobban you in, say, another week.
I will of course be applying the basic highschool/college plagiarism rule: copy/pasting chunks from the tgwiki is not acceptible, and I will watch for that. Feel free to use parts of it for inspiration and research, though.
RE: Random Improvements
honestly if people just use the Meson goggles in the lockers they can see all the ore in the areas near them, so its not really a huge matter of drilling speed, they just give no fucks about doing it
I have never heard of a miner that doesn’t use the mesons, though I shouldn’t be surprised. The difference isn’t the finding ore, it’s the efficiency of being able to break a rock in a quarter/third of a second instead of a second. Lots more mined lots quicker, which means if the miner (who should be dragging an ore box behind them to empty their ore satchel into) does a supply dump after, say, 15-20 minutes of diamond drill mining, they’d probably be able to send Research Wing enough ores for them to do their mad science and arms races for the rest of the round, which could be another good 20-40 minutes of action.
Plus as an added bonus: Diamond Drills can drill through walls/girders/doors (maybe not doors, I forget) like a Gygax Drill can, which makes them a nice faster emergency AI disabler tool)
Tiny feature request
Is it possible to have all player mobs spawn with a “human” faction tag assigned to them? That way, if we want to single out someone to fuck with, we can edit away their tag, spawn a hostile mob, give it the human faction, and then everyone can watch in puzzlement as a bear/carp/clown/penguin/faithless/etc chases JerkMcPub around the station but never hurts anyone else if it loses or kills him.
