  1. Right, I'll preface this with a note that this seems like a really cool idea and clearly a bunch of thought went into it, perhaps even some passion. I can like it from a creative aspect. But parts of it are either totally wrong or wouldn't play out how you think they would. First of all yes - this is literally creating a military / paramilitary force that will make things horrible to deal with as antag. I feel as if it will add to valid hunting, especially with the name given. "But admin.. I'm called a scout. Shouldn't I be hunting for antags...?" Secondly, security has enough slots and variety as it is - the last thing we need is more of a security 'presence' on station. Lastly the head of Security doesn't hold the most power, the captain does. Even then you won't get far without working with your other heads of staff. A good HoS caters to what the other heads need help with and focuses on just keeping the station safe. A power tripping HoS can get voted out, suspended and normally ends up being very disliked. All in all, while some people think that security requires some sort of change it is fine where it is. They aren't too strong, or too weak. They are pretty good where they are and people both enjoy playing as and interacting with the department - at least from what I have been seeing recently. Sure - you get the odd new person that acts like an idiot and can negatively effect a round - but they improve over time and should be ahelped anyway. As a side note, as the recent suggestion to remove the baton found out in SS13 it's actually a required piece of equipment. Moving it to the armoury is a bad idea - it was/is being nerfed already to have less charge and less knockout potential. A huge game breaking -1 from me
  2. I don't really want to whitelist the AI either, would totally agree with being slightly more aggressive with the AI jobbans for AIs that only exist to scan the exterior and valid hunt. Contrary to popular belief security aren't allowed to do this either, so which should station synthetics? That being said, I feel as if a lot of valid points for the AI being...well almost needed have been raised here which I will not repeat for the purpose of keeping this post concise. Furthermore, as someone who plays antag a lot I actually like the challenge of having to stay off cameras if I want to do anything obviously illegal/against station regulations. Like, if I hear the AI making announcements I don't go "Oh look another valid hunting machine that will stop my rp", instead I try to plan around it - take a toolbelt in case I need to open a door that has been locked down etc.

  4. He turned my character straight. What the fuck. Not happy with this behavior honestly from a previous headmin too.
  5. This is going to be my final input because I don't want to clutter the thread, but I was the CSI. And yes...the reason I stood in the way is because the armed cadet and officer were going to light up an unarmed and nonthreatening guest to the medical bay. I wasn't going to stand by and let some guy get shot to pieces. My hope was that the officers would not open fire....instead they mag dumped me. I kind of wish some action was taken for that, but I can't complain as I did not press the matter.
  6. Hello, I was Sophie Hawkins in both rounds. As per usual. For the first round I can't really comment due to my role not really permitting front line combat, so instead I just recharged a few guns for people. Yes I did see the infamous quote and yes I did witness the aftermath of pure carnage...however I don't really have anything more to add on that one. What I can talk about is the second round, where I was a vamp. Security tried to detain me after I was spotted drinking blood from a blood pack like a juice box and after a bunch of screeching and evading I was eventually tossed into solitary for the station's safety...I guess. Now, here's one nice thing I have to say about Juan/Outboard....when an officer tried to take my PDA and headset due to a full strip, the HoS acknowledged my claim that I am allowed to keep my communication devices and made sure to get them back to me. However.... What I proceeded to witness from the rest of the round was a whole heap of neglect towards prisoners. I ended up hulking out because I was abandoned in solitary, even as I pleaded for help which lead to security gunning me down. I witnessed Fernando sit in processing for 20 minutes, and then serving a 30 minute sentence on top of that when Juan had ordered that the doctor should serve the bare minimum for his charges. I witnessed a man who was practically dying in processing but was not allowed to receive medical care. Medical staff were begging for their CMO back as they couldn't cope, a plea which was for the most part ignored. NOW - while this all looks bad and was pretty ass to deal with, not all of it was the HoS' fault. They did have a pretty unhelpful sec team, no warden and seemed to be getting overwhelmed due to how crazy the round was. Does that excuse what happened? No, but I feel as if it partially explains it. After that I was dead until a captain was brought in to help resolve things, a command meeting was called and both parties were allowed to explain themselves. Juan took their suspension well, honestly, without really contesting it or fighting back.

  9. Tbh you can look at this both ways. Either give everyone basic access to all departments, or give it to nobody. A lot of the times people use the janitor as an excuse to give their department more access, such as security being able to respond faster, emts being able to respond faster, engineers able to respond faster etc. And, honestly, it really isn't required. As an antag the slight delay that someone has getting into a place because access is pretty strict has actually saved my gimmicks a few times, instead of being one tapped by an EMT or sec. I think it is fine as is. Leave the janitor able to rp with the different departments, don't give it to EMTs.

  11. Here's the thing. And I can make this confidently after watching Lolziam for a good while now. Do they know all the little rules that command learn over months / years of playing? No. Not really. Do they understand when they make a mistake and correct it for next time? Yes, absolutely. Which I think is more important than the first point I raised. I was with CCIA joking about how often the captain was going for EBS and begging for an ERT when it wasn't needed. The next day I see the captain sending proper faxes, not requesting the ERT unless it was actually required and trying to simply serving as a force to help move the round along. Lolziam is a good person, they take criticism well and honestly I feel with experience they will make a great command member. Sure they will make mistakes over time, we all do. However what makes Lolziam shine is that when they make mistakes, they don't lie or try to weasel out of them. They own them and use the situation to perform better for the next situation they get thrown into. That is why I am giving this trial a turbo +1.

  15. I admit I am not innocent either, however I did not include the bottom part as it /felt/ directed at me. If I misunderstood then that's on me.
  16. Perhaps we all need a chat about conduct, maybe Arrow shouldn't have made the brainfart comment, but unpopular opinion if you get offended by such a basic remark than thicker skin is required. I don't want the chat to be a safe space where I have to tread on eggshells in case x gets offended. On another note, para isn't innocent either here. I've had para insult me countless times over the years I have known them and the way it happens is typically like this: >Para makes a suggestion >I disagree with the suggestion and give a reason >We go back and forth on what we both think without a lot of progress >Para ends up insulting me and I ask him not to do so before the discussion kinda dies off. Why don't I save logs and make a Staff complaint about Para? Because I don't really care. I might get ticked off but at the end of the day we are reasonable people that can move past these arguments, at least from my side. Heres an example of what I am talking about below, in case anyone wants proof of what was said: Basically implying I am an idiot because apparently I believe that antags shouldn't be able to win.
  17. I never said it was a win button, I said it was a way to close off a round. ERT ideally is normally called when the station security has been decimated and another step of escalation is required to avoid things stagnating into the antag being able to do whatever they like. It's off-station assistance that the antags get plenty of warning about, especially when ERT prep takes ages because Tpr. A wants to get their kit just right. They also come in at the same place every time, the antag is able to plan around this if they think carefully. Using tactics is what the ERT do, being given crappy access and bad weaponry is not suggesting that tactics have to be used, its just making another barrier for...little reason. TCFL can still come with the 33% suggestion I offered, having statistically one out of three responses. In lore it doesn't make much sense either - I can go into detail if why but I am trying to keep this post short.
  18. I strongly oppose this as having mostly TCFL kind of defeats the point of what the ERT are for. They are not some cool guys you can call in to get some super cool roleplay with. They are called in emergencies when absolutely required and to help close off rounds effectively and efficiently. They are central's first responders when a threat gets so out of hand that station security can no longer deal with it, so why hinder them with limited access, weaponry and equipment. Making it easier for antags to deal with the station's final line of defense isn't something we should be walking towards. I'd set TCFL at 33% honestly, with a fax to go along with it on how all ERT assets are tied up so external assistance has been requested. It would be more interesting and add a bit of randomness to how rounds develop without removing how much of an asset calling for ERT is.
  19. I like Sammo as a character, generally quite pleasant to be around and definitely good to have on the engineering manifest. Seems to have an interesting personality. One thing I don't like about her as a sec player is how sometimes she seems to try and lawyer the regs to get out of situations, demands to know what our department is doing over common and otherwise can be a bit hostile when receiving charges. Thumbs up from me in general tho.

  21. Oh wow. Okay - yeah I definitely think we should be trialing this PR before jumping to outright removal. It addresses the main reasons as to why they are a bit strong right now, however I don't agree with them having the same capacity as an improvised prod.
  22. Not always an option. Like if someone is grabbing an actively beating on you, running away isn't always possible. I had a situation recently where I was killed because I could not get away, they kept dragging and pulling me away from the table I was trying to climb. I just don't want sec players being killed because some of their essential gear was removed without a lot of thought into possible replacements. The reason I am asking for a replacement, is as Xor said it feels like sec gear is slowly being stripped or nerf without much thought into what can be used instead. It's not all baton rushes and antag removal - most of the time it is being used for a valid purpose.
  23. Alright, fair. But I meant more a voidsuited engineer attacking an officer for x reason. Do they just deploy .45 in that case?
  24. I still want an answer to dealing with voidsuits. As HoS can I just deploy the tranq rifle if someone if resisting arrest, or what steps would I use to deal with an engineering fighting sec for example? Would a .45 deployment be acceptable here? I understand how the baton can be used to instantly shutdown antags, and it sucks. But I do want something perhaps to deal with voidsuit personnel. One time that sticks in my mind is when an engineer attacked me when I was playing HoS, think it was rev. I tried using all my non lethal gear but none of it worked, including my taser deployment on their voidsuit. In the end I had to break their legs by using my telebaton to make them stop...which kind of sucked for us both. I don't want an officer to be stuck in this situation is all.
  25. I think what Am was trying to say, is that if you want to remove the baton, for whatever reasons, there needs to be something to replace it. A melee option is offered to most security forces today, as well as police if you make the comparison. Either make the taser at point blank do a 'dry stun' (i.e - knock them down for a few seconds) or just keep it how things are. Honestly, if you are concerned about security rushing things baton without considering RP then yes, Ahelp it. Antags have plenty of ways to get around the baton, we don't need to handhold them. I don't want to have to deploy less than lethals / lethals to deal with one engineer with a voidsuit and I certainly don't want to remove people from the round because my baton was taken away. From an IC standpoint, in a station which has easy access to voidsuits which render all other sec starting gear useless (baring the .45) why WOULDN'T they have a baton or something similar?
