I mean every race but diona can already hack doors 5 seconds into the game by simply going down the list until it shocks them or they find test, then going to another door if it shocked them.
Literally only diona have any chance of taking meaningful danage from roundstart doors. Every other race don't go in crit. They die instantly.

I wouldn't really mind having slime people as roundstart, but their overall qualities kinda suck anyway. They're very easy to kill, they get extra dmg from water, cold, and heat, and space vacuum. They can heal using electricity and when holding the xenobio slime heart but that's about the extend of their upsides. They're mostly a gimmick race for xenobio so they wouldnt get glomped by slimes

On one hand I like the detached sarcasm of certain mommi players, but on the other hand they can make borgchat feel like deadchat-lite in terms of meta. Of course, not meta that the mommi act upon; but enough that I never have felt even an iota of an attempt at RP from a mommi player. Borgs talk to the AI like servants, AI talks to borgs like a boss, but mommi talk no differently than they might in this very general.
>"Did you see that clown slip that guy with a tome?"

>borg and AI are just supposed to act like they didn't hear that because it's only ten minutes into the round
That said, mommi players are usually based so it's just something I've had to learn to ignore. Wish I could recall some example of good mommi RP, but I don't think I can because there never has been any mommi RP attempts to begin with.

To be honest, I think it adds a lot of charm to the game knowing that these speechless automatons that performs their duties without complaint or comment are actually some knuckleheads amongst themselves. It sets them apart from the other two types of robots and it gives them their own identity.

Quick rundown:
SsethTzeentach made a video months ago about the game and the player count skyrocketed
TG is now infested with trannies, homos, and ironic shitposters and has some shitty lights, but has some cool features like diagonal movement. Playerbase is shit.
Paradise is still owned by a furfag, don't bother
Hippie collapsed and the host quit, there have been several switches between owners and the latest one is a guy working on SSCM, also most of the playerbase is dead
CM's notorious headmin made approx 12 reddit accounts to shitpost at other servers and got kicked, now hangs around TG's version of CM but with a clause that he's never going to be staff. Original CM owner turned out to have been a pedo, basically disappeared from SS13. New guy came, then left. Now marines can't open pill bottles because that would be powergaming, I am not joking that's what they did
/vg/ is going into content stasis due to lack of general coders, had some meta-shaking stuff like the black market, cult 3, and dynamic mode with mixed receptions
Goon is still that autistic server with a very slow feature rate populated mostly by oldfags
Lifeweb's jewish russian Randy lowered the minimum account age to 2016, meaning accounts made in 2016 and before can play on Lifeweb without paying
That's all. No other server matters, but there have been several iterations of a Fallout server and the most recent one is an ERP HRP one, Europa is still a niche server with okay features and resource-hogging lights, there is a new station called Bee that I am not sure what it is about

>> No.262741991

Sec is apathetic for many reasons.
Cult converts through implants and can't be unconverted and they can do this the moment act 2 happens 5 mins into the round. So you have to die or be the bad guy. You can't be a reasonable guy and uncult like before. You can't count on your loyalty implant ot make you loyalty. New cutl largely ruines playing sec because you can just be having a good time then bam culted because you didn't react in the less than 1 sec it takes to click on you and stun + silence sec though armor and glasses with an infintiely producable item that has effectively no cost because it costs so little blood it doens't matter.

If you go too soft on people, they keep being shitters.
If you go too hard on them, other people be shitters because ''lol shit sec lol''
There is no just right level of hard; shitters are being shitters for the sake of it.

Admins will more happily bwoink sec for being shit sec than they will everyone else for breaking all the laws. Unless the shitters outright murder you they will just claim its an IC issue you need to solve as sec but happily bwoink you for fighting back.

All of this makes sec so unfun barely anyone plays it in med-pop and no one does in low so outside of when its high (which is not most of the time) you can't really buddy up like suggested to deal with the above. You have no buddy. You are sec, have fun.

On top of all of this shit the only regular hos player we have is antag half the fucking time so you can't even rely on your own boss having your back.
And on top of that he (and cap and any other head) are 90% of the time allergic to changing silicon laws so you end up fighting the borgs too because they have no fuckign choice to follow law 2.
And on top of THAT the few sec we have tend to harm humans on asimov seemingly just to claim shittercons when the borgs get mad rather than fighting antags.

Our server, antags, admins and players including sec itself all make sec unfun to play.

Apop begun hiding all the posts and made a massive backtracking campaign claiming it wasnt him, while in truth he should have just bit the bullet and come clean with that because it all just made it worse for himself.

Headmin made a lot of fuss over the months on the subreddit using alt accounts, doing things like asking where Paradise's excess patreon money goes (hint: pocketed), someone made a report, Reddit staff got involved and revealed all the accounts sharing the same IP. He got the boot.
As for the original host someone just searched his full username on Google and found him asking for a "realistic" sims 3 nude mod that he specified include children, and also asked for a "shota x shota boarding school story". He might also have been doxxed. One guy on Hippie, Asskek I think, claimed that Apop is bullshitting about his military service too but that might be just a rumor. It's surprising how much dirt you can uncover on someone just by searching their username, always remember to make different usernames on the internet, and maybe save them on your computer or something. It's a life lesson. You struck rich if you ended up having your username be common. If not, tough luck, backtracking through your accounts and trying possible passwords that you might have used in order to contact people to remove them or to use an in-system account deactivation/removal mechanic will usually get the job done, however, which I advise for everyone to do.

Or, alternatively, ONLY those who selected Medical at roundstart can preform surgery - and someone who wants a jobchange from HOP or is just helping put people back together after a bomb or whatever simply can't because 'u got no skillz'. Which then leads to situations like an inexperienced medbay nurse that doesn't know how to do surgery leaves people with broken bones and burst appendixes, while an experienced medbay player who just happened to role bartender that round can do nothing but watch from the sidelines and maybe walk the new medbay player through the surgery.

Xenos are also much more lacks regarding metagaming and RP standards. It's okay for xenos to rush the self destruct device once they hijack a dropship, but building defenses around the SD as a marine is a no no until ordered to do so by command, and they can't issue that order until xenos are coming to the ship or already on it, I think. The game is really no fun at all as just a generic grunt anymore, the only fun to be had as marines is as unique classes because you either get to some autism (engineer or doctor) or maybe actually score a few kills (specialist or smartgunner). You're just cannon fodder as a grunt. Maybe purposefully harming your own side by arresting marines for stupid shit as an MP is fun too, I've never played as one, but it seems like doing your job just increases the odds of you getting fucking owned 45 minutes later.

I don't quite remember but I also think picking up a gun as a non combat role is bannable, even if xenos are onboard. Considering marines can't open pill bottles now I wouldn't be surprised if they made it so surgeons somehow have 0 idea how to use a firearm since I last played.

My absolute favourite was marines were killing aliens with chem bombs, so they removed research. then they switched to killing them with the weakass default grenades, so they made marines scream when pulling the pin and a giant red ! appear on grenades so aliens can see and walk away before they explode. So then marines started cooking the grenades to blow on landing, 1sec flashbang style. So they responded by randomising grenade timers and making grenade launchers have a random chance to misfire. The lengths they went to just to stop marines having a reliable source of heavy damage is extreme.

As far as I'm concerned, Ling is a complete failure. If Ling 2 or 3 or whatever is gong to happen, then we need the following:
>replace monkeyform (which is nothing but a "GUESS WHAT LING CONFIRMED" button) with Norris Head Eject, where your head is launched off your body and becomes a Norris sprite that then needs to go off and kill something small like a mouse or dog or whatever in order to gain mass to get the rest of the body back. Monkeyform doesn't help you escape and is easily stunned/killed. A Norris eject form would be nimbler than the monkey mob, and be unstunnable.
>give Horrorform more health and damage resistance, but deal far less damage; especially to crew wearing armor. It should be something you pull out when you're cornered and need to tank your way out of a situation, not last minute yackety sax on the shuttle.
>steal bits of identity on the fly, much like a diona. Grab a bit of blood from someone, and you can do something like mimic their voice for a little while once you activate that ability. This allows for tactics like sowing confusion over radio, without risking giving someone a full succ that let's you steal their identity completely.
>some sort of anti-mech/borg ability. Secborgs pretty much eat lings for breakfast, with only the presumption of a suspected ling's humanity holding the borg back from just validhunting on sight
>give virology a FINITE number of ling detection test kits, which have the possibility for false positives. Thus they don't hold up in "court" (you cannot execute someone based on the test alone), but you can remove suspicion from human crew who are tested negative. So false positives are possible, but false negatives are NEVER possible. Furthermore, just as how Chaplain is the rival to the Vamp, Virologist becomes the enemy of the Ling.

It's just a power fantasy but for marines. I know it's present in the comics, and maybe it could be a special bus to give the marines one last chance to retake their ship if the admins believed in fair play and not just ensuring the xenos win as much as possible; but the original setup of a squad of Marines and their support android going into space Vietnam populated by swarms of xenomorphs is really what the goal should ultimately be. Both sides should take lots of casualties and need to be allowed to use every available tool in order to win; and nobody should be running around as a whitelist only class.

The problem with whitelisted heads, especially HOS, is that heads are fucking necessary and whitelisting them makes them rarer. I main sec, and there is NOTHING more vital to me than having an HOS and Warden around to unlock armory. Not because I want guns as fast as possible, or because I think regular sec officers should have armory access; but rather when the decision needs to be made to break out lethals for ops, cult, revs, or bleb (especially bleb), I want armory open as soon as fucking possible. That is literally what the purpose of HOS and Warden is as far as I'm concerned. Yeah, HOS is supposed to be my boss and Warden is supposed to be brig's tardwrangler and my eye in the sky on cameras; but those are small concerns compared to holding the keys to armory.

Too many shifts I've played where I'm screaming for HOP or Captain to open armory because warden and HOS never showed up or are KIA/MIA. You don't need to know space law or even be robust to play HOS, you just need to know when shit hits the fan and it's time for lethals to be handed out.

i have 1000 iq and think cult is a net negative in its current form.
the only time ive ever gotten a player feedback/ban request is because i pissed off a dude by arresting them as they swoosed by a cult base, searched them, confirmed them as a cultist, & killed them. i dont blame them for being upset by that but i do think that theres a lot of cognitive dissonance around how the gamemode should be played and why people think its good.

this pretty much
it goes against everything that makes this game good because instead of having opportunities to do anything interesting at all, it incentivizes being the shittiest, silent-shuffliest person you can be
cultist? better not speak a fucking word or take your time doing something fun, gotta get those jecties done, and if you do anything suspicious at all you'll end up fucking your buddies over, so the only appropriate thing to do is wordlessly convert people to hit your conversion objective, then do the sec yourself and hope the crew is too retarded to find/take out the bloodstones before you can do the magic dance
security? you better fucking believe you're gonna learn the meaning of the word 'field execution', and the status quo of 'everyone hates your guts no matter what you do' gets ten times worse because no matter what you do, your actions will result in a large amount of quick and incredibly un-fun deaths, either because you become the fucking pain train, get your shit together, and code-blue randomsearch+implant every last person you see and slice cult heads off in the middle of the halls, or you try and be merciful even when the cult isn't, because you just want people to have fun, but then you end up letting the cult get its grubby c laws all over everything, and inevitably they summon, do the magic dance, and everyone who didn't get converted/boxed gets to sit through Deity rubbing himself off to his edgy goth red and black sonic OC for five minutes
cult is the fucking worst goddamn gamemode, and the fact that deity doesn't understand that baffles me
it's the same problem with revs: you've got explicit jecties that you basically are told 'do it or get dingdong antagbanned', and so inevitably, you either have the choice of trying to have some fun and getting shat on for it, or getting it overwith as quick as possible so you can reroll for a less shitty mode, except now it's mixed all day every day

Really, assistants should be split into two different jobs:
>Intern, actual assistants who assist or try to. They can go to HOP and request an armband that gives them automatic basic access to a given sector - with the intent being that they're there to learn or help out. If you fuck up as an assistant, the assumption should be that it was because you were new, or at least RPing as crew who is new, and not because you're just a shitter. No whitelist required.
>Slacker/Hobo/Malcontent/Assistant, pick one of those titles on arrival. This is the 'I am here to greytide within reason' job. HOP is obligated to treat them like an assistant, give them access if they ask for it and claim they want to help, but by picking this job you are acknowledging yourself as a wild card who is not new or inexperienced and will not try to fall back on such excuses. Maybe whitelist, or just the potential to be jobbanned.

This is almost certainly a controversial opinion, but I really feel that the worst part about being a new player is the fact that the Assistant role is permenantly stained by greytiders. And that isn't to say that I feel antipathy towards greytiding assistants, but rather pity for the new player who will be unfairly treated as one just because his uniform is grey. Looking back on my few shifts as HOP, I realize I pretty much refuse Assistants any access upgrades based on prejudice alone; which is completely unfair. Glad I haven't been HOP in a long while, maybe that's the wrong role for me. But some real "I'm legitimately new and want to learn" non-greyshirt role would mitigate that kind of bias significantly. It'd be a change no more disruptive than the split between clown and mime. Similar role, but one has a rigid gimmick. Interns are like the mime to the clown's greyshirt, only it's not a gimmick it's an actual need to be taught how to play.

I'd argue that Flukeops actually at least has the fucking potential to be a good gamemode. Neither of the others do.
Flukeops doesn't wear any thin guise of 'RP', nor does it actively incentivize silent shuffling; it can be silentshuffled, but most people don't unless they get spoawned in as loneops.
The fact that they have a large amount of gear to start with, the knowledge that anyone who sees them WILL try and kill them without question no matter what, and free reign to go about accomplishing their objectives as they please gives them breathing room to do stupid shit like pizza delivery ops or cakeops. This is in contrast to both cult and revs, which pretty much demand sticking to a straight, set formula no matter what you want to do, because at the end of the day, you HAVE to do X thing; as a rev, you HAVE to murder the heads, and generally, any attempts at doing so creatively will be stifled by your own side being impatient jerkoffs who just want the shitty experience to be over. Meanwhile, cult is even stricter, because it's a fucking checklist of shit you have to do; you HAVE to jerk off in maint converting people and building black rock things for your toys, you HAVE to sacrifice some schmuck, you HAVE to spread the blood, and you HAVE to do the magic dance. None of these activities has any actual leeway in how it's done, because they're all, ironically, incredibly stupid-simple activities; how do you put a fun gimmick to wandering around chemspraying blood everywhere, or kidnapping some guy and shanking him on an edgy looking table? How do you put a gimmick on raping people in maint without security busting down your door for being an obvious book club?
It's all about the fact that at the end of the day, Nukies advantage in doing gimmicks is that they're heavily armed, have exactly one single objective that can be approached from multiple different avenues, and don't have to futz about playing silent-shuffler for an hour.

My attitude is more or less that you kind of have to make your own fun. I'm not saying "be an asshole," but if you're not the minmaxing type, coming up with a little gimmick every couple of rounds goes a long way.

There's a lot of great and fun things in TG, but due to the validhunting nature of their playerbase (not saying we dont have validhunters, but tg is far worse than us in that regard) a lot of those things they have are powergamed and metagamed too much. Take their mining for example, powergamy miners who never do actual mining will rush and kill the ashdrake just to get the loot. Lavaland has a few cool features and their general mining and research system is more advanced. Another thing I always liked about tg is their ghost roles, where you could spawn as ashliggers or some other random thingy in the lavaland. If we implemented things like this here we'd possibly be able to control it better nad crack down on people who tried to metagame those

I believe putting a leash on antags in any way is detrimental to the overall server experience. Everyone knows that getting perma removed from a round is terrible and it sucks, but I’d take it anyday over admins breathing down your neck and bwoinking antags if they step out of bounds. Like for example lings on YOG get bwoinked if they kill someone who wasn’t their target and the admin tells the ling “why didn’t you use a dna sting to extract the dna? HUH!?”
Singuloosing, perma removal and silent depopulators are just a side effect we have to deal with for the price of absolute antag freedom, if we limit what they can and can not do we’re getting closer to admin hand holding territory akin to HRP serbs.
