  8. Reporting Personnel: Oliver Roadman Job Title of Reporting Personnel: Chief Engineer Game ID: b4F-dzmU Personnel Involved: - Mia Newton, Head of Personnel : Offender - Fernando Gonzales, Chief Medical Officer : Offender -Ka'Akaix'Dhan Zo'ra, Engineering Apprentice : Victim/Witness Secondary Witnesses: -Que-Yup Xequal'Valurex, Security Officer: Executor of the warrant -Zihuku Rehiohks, Security Officer: Executor of the warrant -Daniel Carmichael, Security Officer: Attested that a vote had taken place. Witness to the execution of the warrant. Time of Incident: Real Time: (Around 6 CST 12/12/2019) Location of Incident: Medical Rafters, Medical Lobby, Arrivals Checkpoint, Command Channel. Nature of Incident: [ ] - Workplace Hazard [ ] - Accident/Injury [ ] - Destruction of Property [ X ] - Neglect of Duty [ X ] - Harassment [ ] - Assault [ ] - Misconduct [ X ] - Other ___Slander__ Overview of the Incident: The incident began shortly after the one hour mark into the shift. This was right after a radiation storm had passed marking the arrival of Gonzales. A few moments after this a brief loss of pressure occurred within the medical lobby. The cause was unknown at the time, but it was soon discovered to be a result of construction being performed in the lobby rafters. Gonzales upon learning of this demanded it's immediate removal, and followed this statement up with an unexpected threat of an incident report should I not adhere to his demand. I let him know that as Chief Engineer I had final say on all constructions, and deconstructions occurring within the station, but his preferences would be kept in mind as a decision was made. The situation needed to be investigated and the cause of the loss of pressure discovered before further work was done. Despite his insistent threats I refused to compromise the station's safety to satisfy his desire of immediate restoration of the rafters. Gonzales did not drop it, and continued to harass me over the course of the next twenty to thirty minutes repeatedly insisting that the lobby was still unfixed. In addition he kept calling for Captain level votes in an attempt to force me to remove the flooring. Mia Newton originally echoed a need for a report to be done, but eventually was swayed to vote with Gonzales demanding that I restore the rafters. I let them know of my findings in which I explained that due to an unforeseen fault in the station's structure the loss of pressure was entirely accidental. Mia Newton not only disregarded my report, but then began insisting my department, and myself were negligent, and stated quite bizarrely that she believed there to be an active terrorist on board. They both voted and insisted that I restore the rafters, and I informed them of what It would require to complete. The complete evacuation of the medbay lobby, thirty minutes, and several hypercell rated batteries. Newton, and Gonzales took this as a refusal stating why I had to make this process difficult. This is the beginning of the regrettable break down of communications amongst command. I'll admit at this time I myself was getting irritated by both Newton and Gonzales demanding I perform frankly unsafe actions for both myself, and station personnel. While gathering my gear to begin the investigation of the possible removal of the floor tiles we had received an announcement that Hivebots had appeared in the surgery wing. After ensuring my department began to prepare for the possible breaches caused by the invasion I took note of the lack of Head of Security, Warden, and Captain. I confirmed with the AI that there were no stationbounds, and determined that Security had no method to which to arm themselves. Recent Hivebot invasions have become quite a problem in recent months the scale of their attacks have raised significantly. We could not expect Security to attempt to deal with this threat with rubber bullets, and batons. I made the decision to assist opening the Armory, and began making my way to the bridge in haste. I announced over command channel my intention to take the spare, and at the time believed I also announced why I was doing it. I stopped to explain to Mia Newton, whom previously was lounging in the reporter's office as the surgery bay was being eaten, What hivebots were, Why they were a threat, and why I had retrieved the spare. At the time I took their lack of objection as abstaining to my retrieval of the ID, and proceeded to the armory to unlock the lockers. It was only later I was informed ,indirectly, that Newton, and Gonzales took great offense to this action. It ultimately turned out this was unnecessary as a Unathi with a pike had rushed into the fray and broke the beacon before it became too much of a problem. I ensured the armory weapons were returned, locked the armory, and returned the spare announcing that I did so over the command channel. After this incident I returned to the medical lobby evacuating, and locking down the area before I proceeded with my attempted repairs. Unfortunately to save materials the in between area of the rafter's floor, and medbay lobby's ceiling was breached and filled with sand. The material not apt to retain air pressure caused another loss of pressure confirming my suspicions of the fault, and the requirements to fix it now updated with several shovels to removed the excess sand. I sealed the newly made hole, ensured that medical lobby was re pressurized, then proceeded to the shuttle which had just been called. Before I could board however I was confronted by three security officers claiming that I was under arrest for Grand Theft, Gross Negligence, and Trespassing. They presented me with a paper warrant signed by Newton. I protested pointing out that an Acting Captain had to be declared before such a warrant could legitimately be authorized, but complied regardless. When the AI called for the Acting Captain vote to commence over the Command Channel Newton not only declare her support for Gonzales, who responded with confusion, but declared that I was an "Irdani corporate" terrorist declaring me to be detained immediately before being placed under investigation. Security then declared that the arrest warrant they presented was actually a search warrant, and proceeded to remove all of my belongings. I do not blame the officers for carrying out this duty as I myself was unsure as to the actual validity of the warrant. Acting Captain had not been voted for, and no vote had been documented with the AI as to call for my arrest that I know of. In general I would suspect these votes would be handled over the command channel to document the occasion, and to ensure proper communication with all involved. Did you report it to a Head of Department or IAA? If so, who?: No. By time the entire situation became known to me I was already being arrested. Actions taken: This incident report. Reprimand of the apprentice, and reassignment to lighter duties. Additional Notes: I conferred with my department, and all agreed that the culprit of the loss of pressure was unintentionally. The apprentice was under the impression that the rafters were a part of the construction level, and not of medical being the only default access to that location requires the ID of engineering personnel. I could see his line of thinking at the time unsure as to the official designation of the rafters as to which department it would belong. In the future I asked him to confer with the department, and the Chief Engineer on duty before constructing in that area in the future. OOC Notes: ((The venting was caused by a bug, and once tiles are placed asteroid turf appears if they are removed.))
  9. Basic Information Byond key: Brayce Character names: Oliver Roadman, Elim Castel, The Automated Engine Technici are my most played there are a few others though these are likely to be known. Age:26 Timezone: Central Standard Timezone (GMT-6) What times are you most available?: Generally most of the weekend otherwise 6pm to 10pm on weekdays Experience* How long have you played SS13?: 5ish years on, and off. I took a break for a while How long have you played on Aurora?: 5ish years I joined the Aurora, and never looked back. How active on the forums, discord and/or server are you? I read some the forums, available via Discord, and on the server atleast a few times a week Have you ever been banned, and if so, how long and why?: Once by Doomberg for having a similar IP to a jerk. None from my own actions Have you ever volunteered as moderation staff for any other servers, SS13 or otherwise? No this is my first stab at something like this. Do you have any other experience that you believe would be relevant to a position in the CCIA?: I've been playing Command on Aurora for a while now. Personality Why do you want to join the CCIA?: The few CCIA interactions I've had were pretty interesting, and it's something I think I could do to contribute something to the server. What do you think are the most important qualities for a CCIA Agent to possess?: The ability to gather information, and process that information in an impartial manner. What do you think the purpose of a CCIA Agent is in an ongoing round?: As everything to facilitate the round.

OOCly might be help clarify directives to people who's characters might be well versed while they are not as much. How do you handle stress?: Decently. I can keep my head cool most of the time, and mostly walk away when I know I can't. How well do you work autonomously?: No problems working autonomously.
  10. I've said this before, and I'll say it again. The alternative titles have absolutely no definition what so ever. Station Engineer, Engine Technician, Electrician, and Maintenance Technician have the exact same requirements across the board. Even the ones one would think should have a clear cut specialization could get away with not having it the 'education' is the same the mechanics of each role are exactly the same. It falls to the individual player to determine what the title means in absence of any other definition. In this thread I've seen at least four different interpretations of the Maintenance Technician. It's the same as any other engineer It's a Engineering equivalent of a medical resident It's means they're specialized in the maintaining of the station It's a less reliable Station Engineer. If it's frequently played in a certain way that's what it means to those people, and they most likely picked it deliberately. It's not a meme it's reinforcing a character concept focusing on less responsibility because maybe they couldn't get that education, maybe they aren't as trusted because of background, maybe they aren't the smartest bulb in the closet, but they sure can repair some shit. Yet others are looking for the themes as Seeli pointed out can be invoked with the title of Engineer To build, repair, come up with solutions to unexpected problems. In my opinion it's a title worth preserving it's a recognized trope in Sci-fi settings I see no reason to part with it. Made an alt-title itself perhaps. Outright removal. No. As for looking for a job that means less responsible engineer some have already found it in the title of Maintenance Technician you may disagree, but there's a lot of that going in this thread. I'd like to say this is a bad PR not simply because I disagree with it, but because the problem it's attempting to solve I don't believe can be solved with a name replacement. The Alt-titles need to be defined clearly instead of everyone having a different interpretation. In addition removing an existing option in favor of promoting a specific one that is only subjectively better to some is to put it bluntly.. uncool.
  11. The alt titles are all meaningless. Unlike Medical which has defined pages for what each alt title does Engineering has never received the same the meaning is up to everyone's different interpretation they are all mechanically the same. They are all played the same just different specializations. Engine Tech fixes the engine. Electrician focuses on wires. In my mind a Maintenance technician is a less able Station Engineer. I would expect the Engineer to be able to do everything the tech can, and something else. If that be EVA, the engine, SMES, or actual full construction. In actual gameplay all this is again meaningless since all the alt titles do everything. Summary: Big -1. Techs maintain. Engineers maintain, and build. Different job expectations different reasons to both exist. The major reasoning for the change is the desire to be 'cooler' is purely subjective. The opinion of which if not evident by this post I vehemently disagree with.
  12. Hello was tagged by Rose to chime in and clarify a few things. To be clear I did not play, or observe this round, and cannot comment on the events only what I ICly taught Samara, and to offer my experiences into common engineering goings-on. I usually play Oliver Roadman, and taught Rosetango's Samara how to do a basic set up in Atmospherics in previous rounds. This was done with the implication that they would have to break in to complete the task as a part of setup for the engineering department. The Portable Air Pumps do not fill without having been set up in sub-level atmospherics beforehand. This in combination with the default air-line pressure being sub-par filling rooms can be painfully slow to near impossible depending on location, and correcting both takes time to allow the pressure to reach the appropriate levels. These are tasks that need to take place before, and in preparation of an emergency should it arise not during one. That being the general reason behind breaking into Atmos I would like to make it clear that breaking into Atmos to upgrade/fix/grab the dispenser as an Station Engineer has been an extremely common occurrence since I've joined Aurora. This can certainly generate IC conflict depending on the characters involved though it usually goes no further than that.
  13. I've the most experience with Spike, Hannah, and River, but their new head of staff characters are just as well thought out and developed. Cnaym's roleplay is top-notch, and in general they're helpful friendly, and just fun to interact with IC, or OOC. I really have nothing but positive things to say so it's a strong +1 from me. They are very capable of being able to hold onto a whitelist.

    Roll20 - DnD?

    I'd be down for this.
  15. Some of this is speculation, and it's early in the morning. Sue me. Meteors: Bubble. Carp: Hull. (Credit goes to Jan Fischer) While a hull shield will protect the station somewhat. I think meteors explode on impact. Which can get around the shield having the bubble shield which throws up a single wall x meters in every direction from the station will have them explode away from most things important. Screw Toxin's test site It's made to go boom. Location: As central to the station as possible usually the bridge specifically where the charger on the table is. It can be put in other locations, but be aware the shield only extends 100 meters, and it is possible for it to (Bubble) to extend off map, and do nothing. Radius: Max, or near max the station is wider than it is tall, and I haven't done the math on the best possible position which is probably somewhere east of the bridge. Strength: At least 2. Hull at max radius won't get there, but if you set it to one the shield won't come up. This does present a problem since it tries to strength the shield before it recharges sections so any part of the shield that fails stays down until the generator is reset. Charge rate: 0.1. Yeah Minimum all around on shields that size. The limiting factor in shield generation is the capacitor, it can only suck up so much power and it's REALLY easy to hit that cap. A hull Shield barely has enough power to keep itself sustained let alone charge, and a bubble shield can get up to 3 before running into the same problem. Power is first diverted to maintaining the shield, and when that's 90% of the power it can get the other 10 goes to making the shield stronger which might be a fraction of what it actually needs, and that's at the lowest charge rate. And no. Adding more capacitors doesn't work. We've tried it will only pull power from one.
