  1. You'll only be able to take my poncho away when these hands are cold and dead 👊
  2. In the creation of all the new food items that we have, the simple peanut seems to have been mostly forgotten. Only used a single time as a simple garnish for a curry recipe. Times must change for the injustice of this common groundnut. I suggest that we include a few new recipes as listed down below to help bring this grow-able crop into rotation of the kitchen. - Boiled Peanuts A staple from the south, as a good southern man myself this is one of the main and probably the only addition I am interested in. A suggested recipe would be peanuts, water, and salt. It could act similarly to the chip basket and produce trash shells when eaten. - Baked Peanuts Simple, just toss peanuts in an oven with some salt and boom, some peanuts. - Peanut Butter An intermediary ingredient for a following recipe, simply microwave peanuts and maybe cooking oil to produce some peanut butter. - PB&J (variety) Mix together some Jelly from your choice of fruit, be it grapes, cherries, etc to make this staple of surviving as a child in the 90s And many more, theres so many options for peanuts, and it is sad to see them not used.
  3. One of my abilities as an IPC was the ability to cause an EMP on my tile and the tiles around me 10/10 As for bugs, some of the activations are a bit wonky, like having the ability to make a shock on anything by clicking it with harm. Maybe changing up what activates them would make it a bit more user friendly.
  4. If you try, and if you search long enough you can easily find someone bad wearing something similar to something we have in game. I'll take the suggested change for example. It took me five minutes and I found a image of a kamikaze pilots uniform which looks like the suggested replacement. I think we're making mountains out of mole hills here.
  5. To clarify my lore question, I was moreso referring to the legal standing in Tau Ceti regarding what rights Owned/Self-Owned IPCs have. Right now there is an understanding that self-owned IPCs have more rights than owned, but there is no written down list of what they have or do not have in terms if rights.
  6. Hello @Scheveningen, I've come out of my cave to comment on your application. Though my activity may be scarce in this day-and-age, I still main IPC's from time to time, and try to keep up with lore-events/help where I can. I've got a few questions to ask of you on-top of the ones already asked, mainly regarding the policy you mentioned at the end of your paragraph regarding inactive players, seeing as this is something that may effect myself or others in a similar situation. Should you uphold your words in your application, how do you plan on enforcing whitelist revoking due to inactivity? Would you be willing to elaborate on how long is long enough for a whitelist strip? Will people who are active in non server-side related activities with their IPC (I.E The relay/etc) be considered for the chopping block? As for lore-specific questions: I see that you mention about refining what it means to be a owned/self-owned IPC. How do you plan on elaborating what it means to be one of those options? Will it uphold the somewhat status quo, or will players need to modify their backstories/how they play? Will you elaborate on the options that an IPC has to taking self-ownership? Most of my other questions are either too similar to the ones asked before, or have already been answered in some way/shape/form, so I'll leave you with these. Though, I believe I should put my 2 cents in on the things @Bygonehero has brought up. Back when we were both on staff, I did have a negative opinion on how you handled things. At the time I felt you were a bit too gung-ho on certain issues, and abrasive. Back in the day, would you have posted an application regarding joining as the loredev for the race that I play and enjoy the most, I would have almost undoubtedly fought against the application. However, I do feel that you have changed for the better. I do not believe that a majority of the things that you did a years ago should be held against you, seeing as since then its as if you made a complete 180, and admitted your mistakes/shortcomings. I think your actions taken in the past one-two years to change are worth overlooking some of the things you did in the past. We've all gotten angry, and said things that we have regretted in the past, and probably never would say again. We've all let our emotions precedence over logic, its a normal human thing, we all do that shit. Anyways, good luck, godspeed, I'm going back to my cave.
  7. Just because another character is being racist to your character does not equal a negative experience. You shouldn't take those types of things at face value. Every case that I have seen of the overboard "fuck cats fuck lizards fuck toasters I'm gonna harass them every day" types of players were dealt with by staff. (I.E the guy in cargo during the IPC antag contest who would order guns every round just to hunt down and try their best to valid IPCs and IPC supporters for any slight thing they said or did out of line) In addition, the culture for both IC and OOC have shunned super overboard racist characters, as well as the overboard "protect all species no racism whatsoever" characters. I have not had a human character for the majority of years I have been here, and in that time I have not seen a person who has went over the line with racism not get punished/dealt with. I support the status quo
  8. The cloning would put them on par, if not a little more at disadvantage than humans. Positronic brains as is require RnD research, expensive metals like diamond and phoron, a roboticist to remake not only the body but also the said expensive positronic brain, and much more. In times like dead hour is rare to have anything close to that so it already puts them at a disadvantage. In essence, reviving an IPC already requires a soemwhat competent Miner/QM (Materials), a somewhat competent Researcher (Needs to get the required levels in Materials and Bluespace and sync it to the network because believe it or not, posbrainsare actually not craftable until at least halfway through research), and a competent roboticist (to recover the positronic brain, remake the body, and recreate the IPC), where cloning just requires a medical doctor. Every other race has the option for cloning as is, and all cloning needs is a medical doctor and an intact, non-decapped and non-gibbed human to bring them back in the round. Adding in defects from recovery and copying would probably be the best way to solve the "copying a dead positronic brain". Like a computer, if you know what you are doing you can usually recover data from a dead hard drive, and along the way some of the data could become more corrupt. I dont think it would be very fair to IPC players to just outright refuse them a chance at a respawn when all other players have a chance at it as well. Also with the backup thing, cloning has the same thing, you are able to save people's DNA in them, just no one uses that anymore. All you need to do is toss a living person in a cloning pod and scan and save their data. In response to the whole jumping into a SM thing, no, you wouldn't, because if you arent valuing you characters life/etc, you are actively breaking both server rules and IC IPC programming and you would have your whitelist stripped. That's the same as saying "well I'll just go suicidal and then ghost, wait for the 20 minute respawn and join again." Edit: Positronic Brains cost (2000 Metal, 1000 Glass, 1000 Silver, 500 Phoron, 500 Gold, 100 Diamond) and require 6 Materials, 4 Engineering, 2 Bluespace, and 4 Data Theroy research, definitely late mid-tier RnD
  9. A suggestion I had for full positronic death. I believe a new system should be in place for IPC Cloning, due to them not having one should they die. We could have something similar where a dead positronic brain needs to be scanned to have files backed up, and similar to the clone memory disorder add the rule that you cannot remember everything from a certain amount of time, or even toss in some robotic versions of genetic defects like the multi-personality disorder, maybe only being able to see in greyscale, etc. Alternatively, a backup system could be a thing as well, where the IPC has to actively go to a roboticist to have their positronic data stored, in case theirs is destroyed, add the same issues from fragmentation, and then only allow them memories from everything before that backup.
  10. This whole PR has to be the start of the April fools PR. The wage gap itself is pretty dumb in my opinion, but I think my biggest problem is the whole "Marginalized races also are less likely to be selected for certain jobs, along with women." addition, which I think is one of the main issues with this PR. In high-pop hours, you are actively offsetting the chance for someone who was readied up to get a role they wished to play, just because they're playing the race/gender they enjoy as a player. Like, ignoring the political message or whatever, that just seems like a super off putting thing to do, its like telling players "Hey, you spent time on your application, backstory, and stuff, but you know that character you want to play? You can't this round because you're a female unathi/tajara/etc, and they're marginalized man, so that baldie 30 year old human male gets a higher roll in the chance modifier. get fucked." This isn't a PR I agree with, because it really just seems like something made to step on toes, or as some political statement. I'd really rather keep current-age politics out of a dumb top down space station simulator, because all this is going to do is start drama, and make us look like 'that guys'. Big -1
  11. Technically speaking wouldn't this be a staff complaint?
  12. I'm cool with that. The holotags are still fair game tho
  13. This was something suggested to Kyres, but I was told it would probably be better suited for a custom item. I believe it is along the same reasons things like Sol berets/etc are custom item only.
  14. Ah yes finally, the ERP mechanics are being added. I think it would be an interesting addition, though, ripping hair out may not be a good thing, Perhaps instead of removing the hair, it just gives some pain/hallos damage.
