  1. I'm loving the designs so far. Looking very professional. Can we get some tacticool looking Bowman style headsets for them?
  2. Yahir inspired one of the funniest moments I've ever had in SS13. He's a good boy.
  3. Instead of denying access just make it part of the SoP to not search maintenance without probable cause (response to a reported crime, pursuit etc) without a change in the alert level?
  4. You can get up to a considerably powerful point using only steel/glass - really the majority of RnD only requires steel glass. Enough levels to produce up to Combat Hardsuit circuits for example.
  5. Why not have the main signs like this to match all the uniforms? Because if it was signage like this I would vote blue, if its the previous version with the white cross I vote green.
  6. Byond key: Happy_Fox Discord key: CF#4818 Character Name: Msizi Djikstra Item name: Stellar Hood Item function(s): To shade the eyes from ambient light and to protect the wearer from the influence of the Shaitan by hiding the finer details of the face. Item description: A more encompassing version of the Starveil, made from a resilient xeno-silk, intended to protect not just the eyes but also the soul of the wearer. Item appearance: Item name: Stellar Robe Item function(s): To conceal the body and augmentations of the wearer when outside of their quarters. Item description: A finely made robe of resilient xeno-silk, shimmering like starlight. Item appearance: Item name: Symbolic Khanjbiya Belt Item function(s): To represent the ceremonial weapons of ship Djikstra when in more restricted areas. Item description: A xeno-silk belt carrying an ornate, but entirely symbolic, curved dagger. The blade is fused to the sheath, preventing it from being drawn. Item appearance: Why is your character bringing these items to work? These items are culturally and spiritually important to her. Being of a particularly superstitious ship in the Scarab fleet - the protection against the Shaitan is important as ship Djikstra has a history of misfortune and tragedy. They serve to remind her of her origins when surrounded by differing cultures and to help her feel more comfortable when faced with danger and harm. Without them, she feels ill equipped to represent her homeship in times good and bad - and that she lacks protection against spiritual harm. How did your character obtain these items (1 paragraph or more please): All the items were created by Msizi herself - the materials expensively sourced from offworld traders. The skills required to weave the robes and craft the blade are taught to ever member of ship Djikstra - to ensure that they can always protect themselves wherever they are. The items here represent a number of near identical sets. Those who work closely with her would notice minor differences or alterations that belie their supposedly identical nature. What value does this item have to your character, and what story does it tell? (2 paragraphs here please): The items are valuable to Msizi on a superstitious level for the protection from misfortune they provide to her soul. They are continually remade and reproduced - allowing the wearer to adapt minor aspects of the design to better fit their environment while maintaining the overall appearance. The cultural significance of the items is in reminding her that by name she represents ship Djikstra wherever she walks - and that by continually adhering to Djikstrani culture when in foreign environments she might never forget how her behaviour reflects on that of her homeship. On a more personal level, the items allow Msizi to connect with her home regardless of her location - no small feat when knowledge of the Scarab Fleet's present and accurate location might be unknowable - allowing her to counter the feelings of homesickness and distance between her and her family. Ship Djikstra's on board conditions are one of low light, a tradition gained from a inhabiting a ship plagued with power issues, malfunctions and shortages. As such, much effort is made to encourage the development of verbal communication in the absence of light, and Djikstrani natives often struggle to communicate using facial expression or body language. The all encompassing garb of the Djikstrani also serves a purpose in countering this weakness when in diplomatic meetings with representatives from other ships. Without their robes, the Djikstrani are often either too expressive with body language, stiff and almost robotic or end up copying those around them. How will you use this to better interact with crew and/or stimulate RP? These items will help me to better express Msizi's origins when interacting with crew - and to encourage me to focus more on my own Roleplaying consistency. Her appearance when obscured could be seen as either spooky, mysterious or intriguing for certain members of the crew and stimulate discussions about her homeship, the Scarab Fleet and Offworlders in general. Inspiration for the items comes from the Arabic origins of her homeship, the expression of which has, over time, shifted to better represent Scarab Superstition while retaining much of their cultural heritage at least in a superficial way. Sprites: Additional Comments: Mechanically speaking the Stellar Hood would ideally hide any masks/goggles being worn (in a similar way to other full face translucent headgear like the chaplain's hood) to prevent issues with obvious "clipping", while still allowing them to eat/drink without removing it - but would NOT obscure their identity when examined or provide any actual protection against powerful sources of light and/or spiritual harm. The Stellar Robes would occupy the suit slot and, like a void suit, hide any clothing worn underneath to again avoid any "clipping". They would need to be able to have accessories attached to them (as the symbolic belt would need to be attached to them, as well as departmental ESS ribbons for when she is working) and it would be nice for it to have suit storage identical to a jacket. The Symbolic Khanjbiya Belt would be an accessory with no storage (otherwise it would not be symbolic) so that it can be attached to the Stellar Robes or, if these need to be removed for any reason, other clothing. The ensemble together with research gear/attachments on top. All the items have some measure of translucent material to represent thin silk veils.
  7. Great idea to have our own - but I do like some of the posters that exist already. I've gone ahead and turned the two TCFL recruitment posters into game-sized versions:
  8. Can you not significantly lower the volume instead rather than remove it entirely?
  9. I'm so envious of AI players, if my game didn't crash out/freeze so often I'd probably give it more of an effort. I really like all this AI startup stuff.
  10. But... but... the World of Warcraft pauldrons? How can I show off my strength as a knight of cargonia without something like this: All jokes aside the yellow lights reminds me of a forge/smeltery - which is awesome for a mining related suit.
  11. True. I've been within 3 squares of an explosion large enough to reach from the research chem lab to the top edge of robotics - injured but not gibbed. If anything the resulting pressure loss was more damaging.
  12. Quick little manned turret concept.
  13. Thought it would be easier to put my sprites here for a sort of portfolio of whatever I've managed to do with practicing sprites. I'm very new to it (only started earlier this week) but I'm enjoying it greatly so far, nice little creative hobby to keep me distracted from more important things in my life: ISD Space Windbreaker Black Briefcase NT Brand Briefcase Corporate Briefcase Constructive feedback is very much welcome! Thank you.
  14. I'm just practicing spriting (only started a few days ago) and thought this would be fun to make.
