  1. I personally thing it's too hard to die from firearms. I was happy with how it was before, but then we removed the getting shot in the head paralasyis? Which took the fun out of aiming for the head... I'd rather argue it's too hard. Or at least, the pain could be increased where to actually getting shot HURTS.
  2. Honestly, if mechs got a startup system, and some sort of cool computer voice/ai thing like they do in Titanfall. I'd fucking kill for it. "You are out-numbered, two to one." "Recommend retreat." "Eject. Eject. Eject."
  3. Although the app is lacking in... everything. (no offence) I suppose it maeks sense considering you were a moderator before. I must ask why, DO YOU THINK YOU CAN BREAK MY ARMS? BOTH OF THEM THIS TIME?! +1 because I know he's a good chap
  4. Can I make a suggestion, and perhaps have the ballistic helmet have some sort of "half-visor" over the eyes? Or perhaps have them have ballistic goggles attached to the helmet, and you can toggle them.
  5. +1 I always love seeing Elise in a round, and I think you roleplay them really well, I think you'll do great with a Command application.
  6. Icky is a pretty cool RPer, gives Jake a fright every now and then since one of his characters are X tup! I think they would do great with a comand app, hopefulyl they do well as well! +1
  7. There's a good chance I won't be playing this character during the warble events. Mostly because I am focusing on Jake at the moment. Though I do understand your skepticism.
  8. This was all IC, Jake gets eaisly annoyed when things don't go his way. Me and the player of the CE who was the cause of this happening, already talked this out over discord and there's nothing bad involved. It was just our chracters being characters. The reason I cryo'd however, was because A, it was extended, and B, I'm not a fan of playing a cadet.
  9. BYOND key:Dark1Star Character names:Jake Jarvis, John Normandy, Xiquilixqip Sherup'Gell How long have you been playing on Aurora?:about a year now. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist?:Well, I’ve been thinking of doing a Command Whitelist for ages now, I just never really thought about doing it up until now. I think it would be really cool to have a command character, and join the ranks of command. Sometimes I feel like I could do well in a command posistion, that's not security intensive like HoS, so I'm thinking of putting it to the test. I would never make Jake a HoS mostly because being a HoS is... stressful. I have felt like making a HoP in the past and it seems like I could do well with that. Why did you come to Aurora?:Well, I recently left college, and I was bored, and the SSeth video reminded me of SS13, I’ve been playing the game since 2012 now, and I was reminded of it after I took a long break from it. I decided to do some HRP servers, and the thing that drew me to this server were Hardsuits funny enough. I remember the server being key for having Hardsuits, I stuck around because I enjoy playing with this community, the admins are pretty chill, I have made many friends here as well, the events are also fantastic. Have you read the Aurora wiki on the head roles and qualifications you plan on playing?: Yes. Have you received any administrative actions? And how serious were they? I’ve got like… 29 notes, and I’ve had two warnings that expired months ago, the warnings were for minor things that I used to do back in the day, but I believe I have learned from my mistakes and become a much better roleplayer on this server. Please provide well articulated answers to the following questions in a paragraph each. Give a definition of what you think roleplay is, and should be about:Roleplaying is about taking an idea, a character, or a story, into your hands, and making it your own. Having other people take part in the story to improve on the roleplay, and having fun overall, create that story by making a character and involve them in events, situations and just talking to people in general. Roleplay is taking a story, and making it your own. What do you think the OOC purpose of a Head of Staff is, ingame?:Heads of Staff are there to help drive a story, when an antag comes aboard, it is your job, if you are the only command member at the time, is to communicate with the crew, keep them in the loop so they feel involved in the antag’s story/gimmick. As the only command member sometimes, you just need to help everyone you can, people will rely on you. What do you think the OOC responsibilities of Whitelisted players are to other players, and how would you strive to uphold them?:Whitelisted players serve has some form of mentor role I think, when someone is new to the server, they can look to you, who has a Command Whitelist, that they can ask you questions, and you can answer them. If I was to up-hold this, I would do my best to help everyone I can, if I see someone running around struggling I would ask if they need any help in LOOC. If they need more help, I will A-Help them and see if a moderator/admin can help them out a bit more than I could. IC, I think as I said above, Command members are there to help drive a story in the round, and keep other players involved in the current round happenings. Could you give us the gist of what is currently happening in Tau ceti and how it affected your character and their career?: Diemi has been working in the Republic of Elyra all his life, from a young age he was all about making money, doing jobs for people while he was young, trading items for other items, valuables for valuables. As he grew older, he became a business man, a some-what successful business man working in the capital, making the credits and doing usual business man stuff, however it all took a change when the Lii'dra somewhat recently invaded. Killing his father who he looked up to a lot, which caused him to have an almost natural hatred for Vacura, even if they are not Lii'dra. He has a dislike for Skrell as well, thinking the Federation are full of them selves, being better than everyone else. Hearing about the recent... "attack" on the Federation archives almost brings a smile to his face. War is great for business afterall... What roles do you plan on playing after the application is accepted?:I will make a Head of Personnel, I plan to make other afterwards, such as my Skrell Scientist Xiq, into a Research Director one day, after he has become more known and been on the station long enough. Characters you intend to use for command or have created for command. Include the job they will be taking:I will be making a Head of Personnel, (or a captain.) Depends on how I decide to make them once I finish them up, Jake will never be Command, Normandy will never be an RD, my Skrell will be an RD ONE day. As it stands for now however, I will make a HoP or a Captain, (going for the big one here ooo boy.) Because form personal experience I do not see them a lot. The HoPs name will be Diemi Mayaki (Pronounced, Di-Emi May-Aki), a human male standing at around 6ft, the ethnicity of "Wasat" from Perispolis in the Republic of Elyra. How would you rate your own roleplaying?: Perhaps a 6 or 7, I like to think I have improved over my time playing. Some people have noted that I have improved as well. Do you understand your whitelist is not permanent, and may be stripped following continuous administrative action?: Yes, as with any other whitelist, it can be stripped at a moments notice. Though these are more strictly combed. Have you familiarize yourself with the wiki pages for the command roles?: Yes. Extra notes:Hi mom, hi dad. You know who you are.
  10. +1 Peppermints roleplay is some of the best on station, and their characters are always fun to interact with. The application is also well written and well thought out, which is a good thing.
  11. I understand your point, however as I said, it's almost like a family member giving a stuffed animal to their son/daughter before they die, which suddenly increases the sentimental value a lot. Though I have said the reasons why above.
  12. Byond key: Dark1Star Discord key: CookieJarvis#8182 Character Name: Jake Jarvis Item name: Decorated Wooden Case + A Medal of Valor Item function(s): To act as a storage case for a medal. Item description: a wooden case, with a silver plaque with gold engraved text on top, which reads; "In memory of Oscar Easter, bless his soul and may he rest in piece." the front also contains engraved text, "Oscar Easter, 2434 - 2461" Item appearance: a wooden case with a silver plaque with golden engraved text on the top, with silver engraved text on the front. Why is your character bringing this item to work? How did your character obtain this item (1 paragraph or more please): In memory of Oscar Easter and everything he has done for the ISD, the last talk Oscar and Jake had was Oscar giving Jake support in helping escaping a Commando should they actually try to go for them. Oscar wasn't alive to retrieve this medal, so it was given to Jake by the captain to hold on to for Oscar. Jake wants it in a nice case that he can keep on him or place somewhere in view for everyone else to see. What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell? (2 paragraphs here please): Jake would like to bring a piece of Oscar with him to work as he still works in the ISD, Jake believes Oscars death was un-called for however this medal holds a lot of sentimental value for Jake. Technically being the last thing Jake has of Oscar, the medal was meant to be for Oscar however he was dead and was unable to retrieve it. So Jake asked the captain if he could keep it in memory. Like how some people bring their stuffed animal to work, perhaps it was given from a dying family member shortly before they passed away, this is the same kind of thing however with a medal. How will you use this to better interact with crew and/or stimulate RP?: This item Jake can show to other ISD members, and other crew on station, the medal will show that no matter what happened to an Officer, they will still be around the station as a memory, Oscars name will never be forgotten, and when Jake is asked why he carries around a medal, he can tell them the story of Oscar Easter and how he was a valued member of the Internal Security Department. Sprites: https://i.gyazo.com/f5b8ba2dbd6084d2264e91b7d590de2f.png Additional Comments: Literally my first time spriting my own thing, however I am not sure if anything else is needed to be done? I do not know how to code so I shall have to leave that up to you. Basically there is a medal of valor in the case, I did not sprite that because we already have one in game. Medal Box.dmi
  13. Folding stock looks great! Let's also make it useful and when you fold it, it has more recoil, but can fit in a backpack.
  14. 50 people wanted adapatations, /80/ wanted it reverted...
  15. I shall not + or - this application, I have the same concerns as Brutish. I play almost every single day, and the only character I've seen of yours is Webb. However I rarely see them and maybe I'll see them once or twice a week if lucky. You also do need to become more active within the community. Being a command member is a big role, I don't have experience in it, but I have been interim plenty of times before, and I know how stressful and demanding because a head can be.
  16. +1 I've known Cnaym ever since I've started playing Aurora, first with my Robotcist John Normandy, becoming great friends with their (now) Engineer, Spike Barnes. Tag team duo in Robotics. I play officer a lot now and their security officer Akki is a really good character too. I can vouch for their RP, they are great at what they do.
  17. That honestly means a lot coming from you. And I know how scrutinizing you can be with applications and what not, but hearing this from you actually made me smile, If I am being honest.
  18. Not everyone can make it big inside the Federation, Xiq was unfortunately one of the ones that didn't. However after hearing about the Aurora through news sites and general talks amongst the Federation, he feels that it might be eaiser to make it big on the Aurora first by becoming a director, perhaps after a few years working on the Aurora he could come back to the Federation with some achomplishments.
  19. So, I had help from a friend of mine in re-structureing the backstory to make it eaiser to read and make more sense. Hope you like it.
  20. If Xiq was suprised by something, say if one of his experiemtns succeeded, he would probably talk in Nral'Malic for the duration of his suprise, perhaps chirruping heavily. However, if he was suprised by something bad, perhaps seeing someone shot or killed, he would most likely chirrup loudly once, and then go quiet while retreating from the area, perhaps crying afterwards, as death is uncommon for him, he is no combat expert by any means. His loyalty to the Federation if classed on a scale of 10, would be around a 6 to 7 out of 10. Before his loyalty used to be higher, however due to recent events, the archives, talks amongst the ExtraNet, the Federation to him, are perhaps not as golden as he once thought? However these thoughts are usually quelled, more like lingering thoughts, "what if?" so to speak.
  21. Yeah, I tried making a decent backstory, and the flow of it is pretty bad, but yes, I know it's quite bad and I did try to improve it as much as I could.
  22. I did read about the humor, but I couldn't think of a way to incorporate it in to the backstory. There's a reason why I rarely make new characters hahaha
