  1. Hi, The player complaint rules tell me not to post if not involved, but since I'm directly referenced in evidence here I'm assuming that's enough "involvement" to warrant a post. If that's not the case, sorry! I had no idea who Carpe was before the conversation I had with them in #human-general on the lore Discord. All I do know is that I saw a discussion about Aurora human lore drawing heavily off "X culture/ethnicity from present-day Earth but in space!!" and decided to get involved, because I think that kind of worldbuilding has some definite merit to it even if it's kind of unrea
  2. Security as a department offers gameplay on both extremes of the scale. In extended or low-intensity rounds, you might as well not exist from a gameplay perspective, but the amount of stuff you can (or have to) do slowly creeps up with the amount of bad stuff happening. The sweet spots are when you have literally nothing to do, because you can chairRP in the bar or whatever, or when you have something antag-related that's actually engaging to pursue. This essentially writes off a ton of stuff like random welderbombs, ninjas stealing the spare at 00:30, corrupt form wizards, and more or less an
  3. I can't really agree with this, though. Zavodskoi tides aside, the vanilla NT security uniform is white and blue. Idris security (I know right) tends to be turquoisey-teal with a lot of white on the uniform underneath, and EPMCs have bluish-white-grey highlights all over them as well. I don't think of black as being security's aesthetic colour; it's blue, if anything, since that colour shows up a hell of a lot more. This seems like a weird way to defend your point here.
  4. I didn't have time to comment on the originals, but I'll leave my two cents on the updated sprites now. The new disruptors are very good. Initially I thought they were worse, but having slept on it and looked at the old disruptor sprites again I realised I must have just been very tired. I like them a lot! The new laser rifle I'm not sure about. Something is off about it -- I don't think the shiny white/chrome colour does it for me. It also looks very chunky. I think the sprite is too tall overall, even if the length is fine. I love the shotgun. It looks simple yet suitably futu
  5. Hello, Regarding Geeves' footnote about not wanting to post the rude DMs he received, presumably out of ostensible concern for my reputation or something, I'm going to firstly make it clear that I don't care at all if the DMs are shared, and go one step further and outright provide a Pastebin for anyone who's interested to look at them. There is nothing in there that I don't still stand by. https://pastebin.com/KMwn1QLw In addition to what I've said in there I don't have much else to add to this. I found the captain to be unhelpful, passive, and reluctant to step up to the plate
  6. I appreciate the two extensions to no end, but ultimately I haven't really been able to pull up the motivation to play much command at all over the past weeks. A combination of factors throughout late November and December so far have torpedoed me to no end. I'll reapply -- probably with the same application -- when I have more of a chance to actually leverage the command hours needed in a relatively short timespan to power through a trial, but this can be closed now. Sorry for the inconvenience and thanks for your responsiveness on Discord regarding this app so far.
  7. My thoughts haven't changed, but I will bump them again at Danse's request. There are rare exceptions to wizard rounds being bad (I just came out of one) but the overall sentiment still applies, and it isn't worth wading through the 9/10 funny meme ones to get to the one that's actually halfway passable and conducive to a high roleplay server.
  8. Hi, I'd like to ask for an extension on this. I didn't play at all last week on account of the scale of the ongoing event catching me a little off-guard; I wasn't really up for figuring out a way to introduce new characters during a total Aurora lockdown that made any sense to me.
  9. I am interested in the permanent repercussions of the arc much more so than the arc itself. I don't know if a week of Solarian ghost roles and a flat lore ban on your character living anywhere than the Aurora for X amount of time is really what I was expecting or hoping for. For me, this arc peaked at Clandestine -- which was wonderfully mysterious and exciting in every way except for the hellish lag. Everything since then has been a steady spiral downwards -- from the conspiracy that suffered very hard from having already-established players monopolise it and the generated activity/intri
  10. BYOND Key: Omicega Character names: Alicia Parker -- Security Guard Yingmei -- Bartender I have others, but these two are by far the most significant and well-known, I think. How long have you been playing on Aurora?: Two months now in a solid block. I dabbled for a few days at a time in the past, but this is the first time I've really seriously played here. Why do you wish to be on the whitelist? I want to play some of the head of staff roles as well as a consular officer from time to time. I'll be honest and say that I don't really see why these roles are gated
  11. Can I bump this without being crucified? I hope so. This is event is doubly annoying for bartenders now that fragile glassy items smash when thrown. It is also infinitely more annoying for IPCs, who can get whacked with a vendor-tossed item and have to go bug a roboticist to fix the red overlay they get treated to for the rest of the round. I don't know if I've ever seen rampant brand intelligence add something in the way other events can. Carp migrations and spider outbreaks stimulate some kind of interaction, the blob pulls engineering into the mix with an emitter, and so on. RBI d
  12. Wizard is absolute anathema to a high roleplay environment. It boggles my mind that the lore writers and staff team as a whole here have gone to such lengths to craft such a high-quality roleplay environment and maintain its integrity over all these years, only to let it regularly get dumped on by the clown fiesta that is wizard. I don't even really care that it's low-impact on its own; to me, any round type that has wizard in it is just straight up worse off for it. There is nothing immersive about Mungo the Magnificient materialising on the station at 12:15 to grab the spare and then ca
  13. I have had my disagreements with Robotic in the past, but having played with them and seen them play in a fair few rounds on Aurora -- both as their consular Nguyen and their warden Palmero -- I can easily give them a +1. I can only second the above poster in that their consular got me very interested in Gadpathur.

BYOND Key: Omicega Character names: Alicia Parker -- Security Guard Sophie Harper -- Atmospheric Technician Ly Thi Hanh -- Paramedic Junko Tsutsumi -- Forensic Technician Nikarete Komnenoi -- Detective Species you are applying to play: IPC What color do you plan on making your first alien character? I feel like this question is mostly meant to crop up for Skrell or Unathi whitelists. I'm planning on making a shell, though. Have you read our lore section's page on this species? I have, and I feel as if I have a good overview of them. Please provide w

Somewhere between a kind of minty teal and a watery light blue. The colour on display on their wiki page is a very neat sort of aqua and it's extremely tempting. Have you read our lore section's page on this species? I have. There are a lot of them, and I was tabbing around most or all of
