  1. Right. As for what was happening in the elevator. I was going for the Odysseus in there to help evac my crew in what I thought was a protracted fire fight below. I saw Willow and the CT go up thinking that they were smartly pulling out of a combat zone and not Operating as normal to the adjacent combat zone going up and down for crates So when the elevator came down when I called it and they were in their I aimed at Willow and started typing to make a deal. They made me fire then the taj CT pulls out their auto .45 then a shield. and just opens up. So I retreat while returning fire. Aiming for the legs as the captain had ordered me. I subsequently bleed out once I am back at the shuttle. What I cannot understand is why the fuck cargo was just going about their business in the middle of a fucking fire fight, and the dumb fuck bravado of pulling the spawn loot in a stand off before I could type 'hold it' So I pop one off and miss on a twitchy lass and the paramilitary cargo tech acting less sanely than the unibomber both of who should not have been going back down into a combat zone instead of the surface hall. pulls a quarter of the armoury out of their backpack and treats a hold up like a shooting gallery in the course of 2 seconds. So my main issues are. 1. The gear up was kinda shitty. But I could buy it. 2. Why the fuck were you even there given the events right next to this. 'I had an order.' Makes no sense. 3. Why go back into that bullshit with a crate when there are better options. 4. Why go muh valids on what was going to be a nice little go lie down on the floor there hold up which everyone would have got out unharmed because you can get a shot in. So go go go.
  2. There are a number of cases where someone will say something that should make sense to a lot of people only to get a "What does that mean?" So here is a place to make a growing list of names, contractions, and others that are generally accepted by the community. General: Internals = Personal air supply. Via mask or some sealed suits, with a form of tank. Disposals = Context specific. Will either refer to all bins and pipes in the rubbish network, or the end point of the crusher. Carp = Space carp, the purple fish like creatures that migrate through the void. Dweller = Cavern Dweller, a worm like creature that resides in the depths of the asteroid we are located on. Command: Engineering: Shield = Referes to the hull or bubble shield and an associated capacitor. Medical: CMC = Crew monitoring computer, the console application that checks suit sensors. IB = Internal bleed. A dangerous medical condition that needs quick reaction. Dylo =Dylovene aka 'Anti-Toxin' Research: Sync = The action of synchronizing with the main severs, sync usually being an upload, can be a statement as in it was done or a request to have it done, synced the download version. Slimed/Glomped = Attacked by a slime from xenobiology. Security: Service: Supply: KA = Kinetic Accelerator, a mining tool.
  3. Many places like the kitchen, chemistry, an some places in science t least used too have brown wrapping paper, an a labeller given to all those with the wrapper and brown paper, for when it used to go through cargo to be sorted. The item is the destination tagger that can only tag it for the sorting office. Saving some of the hand deliveries an giving cargo more to do.
  4. So many possibilities with that. Could be very risky with griffer chemists. Crank the amount and potassium + water = victim giblets. So balance would be quite the consideration.
  5. Kaed's idea sounds pretty good, one verb 'change help intent' that cycles through, like the pull punches one.
  6. Let me continue with the government analogy, parties that win a small majority make a coalition with others to make it over 50%, round types can't bargain, so most majorities would get stuck in the weeds below 50% giving them little to no reason to vote at all. In the analogy, winning the vote gains the party power with which to deal and discuss. A flat point for point, means no one wins a vote. The majority cannot bargain for a better position, so the majority should have more power, it isn't token. It is a representitive concept At 51/49 split currently has a 100% outcome (An I am fine with that, I don't think we need a change) In the system I suggested 75.5/24.5 split chance. At half the vote, the majority only has a 75% chance of winning versus all other comers. The majority should be catered too, they are the most. But minorities matter, an should not be without consideration. But round voting is probably not the way to do it. Honestly just off the top of my head, a recurring non secret or extended day would probably serve it better than affecting every round. A day without the heavyweights so the small votes can fight it out every now and again.
  7. I am iffy on this whole thing. But a thought to toss in the ring. On the matter of majority doesn't matter vs minority doesn't matter. Why not have the randomizer split. The majority wins 50% of the pot, and then the other 50% is divvied up by the actual votes Do using the hypothetical votes above. We would get: EXTENDED 65% (50 for majority+15 vote count), MALFUNCTION 2.5%, MERCENARY 3.5%, WIZARD 6.5%, CULT 7.5%, AUTOTRAITOR 5%, NINJA 5% It would also remove the 70% of the time it is a round not by the majority as the majority will always have over 50% of the weighting. [Added] Also a possible cut off for minimum percent/votes to matter. NZ parliament voting has a 5% minimum to get a seat. That would drop malf out of the above, an the 2.5% could be split evenly or be given to the majority meaning if the are a bunch of small votes but it is overwhelmingly one, it could be 100% the majority. with single or very low vote counts not winning by pure chance.
  8. That is astoundingly accurate. My main issue that I feel I need to highlight even though I have resigned from the CCIA, and have been trying to avoid tossing in my own two cents to let Synno carry on their succession unimpeded. I am going to grandfather in on this one. Regarding your talk about mained as an IAA. So. Overlooking personal issues from dealing with you and ignoring the badmouthing of the Duty Officers, which is the CCIA on reddit. An leaving those aspects out of the quotes. Quoting myself. While a Duty Officer (CCIA Agent) Excerpts from Re: Theplahunters unban appeal #19 Quoting myself. Again. While CCIA Leader Excerpt from Re: Remove Internal Affairs or Make Staff Improve It #5 Hunter Robinson and Terrance Frank, were, and remain as infamous examples of how not to IAA. An while you may have had fun. Pointing out that you are the posterchild of what not to do as an IAA, is hardly encouraging. So a more detailed answer on what parts of an IAA and what good parts you could bring from that to the CCIA would not go a miss.
  9. Yeah, I usually have some dex plus in pure for dire dex plus needs to hook to an IV or inject. An The DexInapro mix is used where I would use inaprovaline over where I would use dex in most cases. But an excellent point if you are using it primarily for the dex use it would be more helpful.
  10. Jackboot's Idea is bloody good. Otherwise an idea is making the cardboard a little toxic/builds up in their gut. So if they are eating more than one box in a short amount of time. They flat up die. To at least de-incentivise the mass box munch. Also. Hide traps under tables when?
  11. Really good guide. But my 2 cents are. With diluted Dexalin plus. Inaprovaline instead of water is my go too. If they are in crit oxyloss, it will reset the oxy, and fight the drop too. Also sometimes you just want pure stuff, never hurts to have a little in reserve even if it isn't in the fridge. Oxycodone is very helpful in surgery if you need to get into them quick, or can't take gas like vacura. While they are awake, it can be good especially for critical internal bleeds. IV at 0.03u/s hook em up wash hands and have at it. But outside of extreme trauma and surgery it shouldn't really need to be used. Also thank you for your effort in the bottle v pill debate. Generals in liquid specialties in pills 5ever Also also. Sometimes players can get stuck in perma stuns, which even admin abuse can struggle with. Synaptizine works well on that. An mixing it 1 unit to 20 Dylovene fights the toxic effects for the length of the dose. Though it is a bit wasteful on the Dylo Yet another also. Borgs struggle with pill bottles. So it can sometimes be worth having some single pills of the iron in the fridge for their use, or another doctor just needing one, and not taking the bottle with them and leaving it somewhere randomly or keeping it in their pack. Then going SSD when you really need one to work with the IV.
  12. I think a lot of good points have been raised in regards to what should and should not be done. But I do have a few points and prospective questions of my own. I have little to no problem with job hopping in and around the low level service and supply jobs. I have worked a number of jobs like that an there is a lot of shuffling to fill gaps or I have even seen employees who are in various departments depending on the day of the week in a regular roster ranging from food prep to paperwork to barista. In regards to the officer paramedic combo. I can see it happening, but stay in you current shift lane is also important. Using your EMT training to keep you partner kicking until the EMT arrives fine, swooping every EMT call meaning they are having to chase you through the halls all the time. Is a giant fucking pain. It is bad enough when the it is the same MD swooping every call or a lick behind you to grab them and haul them off in the very next second. OOCly, you are screwing over other people's round for yourself, cut that crap. Relating to command and non command roles, captains and HoPs are a hard one to argue on the normal unless it is something like Jackboot suggests, where both are rather cerebral roles with a shared skillset. Within more specific departments. I think most HoDs are promotions from within who worked up to that point. So they all have a primary field outside of their command one in that department. An I have no issue in them falling back into it when the HoD slot is taken/you don't want the command stress but want that character an their interactions, as being a command player you can often be cut off and an entire reliance on visitor status seems rather extreme against the just for fun potential. Now for a primarily self centered question. I have a medical character who I used to mainly do CMO, but their other primary is a chemist and I have not CMOed with them in a while. They have had a history in engaging in medical research, but never taken a research role. I have been toying with the idea of taking that character on as a scientist to utilize the research and development chemlab as well the research facilities and equipment to engage in actual tests for the sake of learning. In essence still functioning as a chemist as per normal but shifting temporarily from a supply desk role with dependents to someone focusing on their same craft for knowledge improvement with the appropriate gear, without having to beg command staff every round and get out of their current tasks to fill that role they joined intending to act in. f we were to side with more restrictive interdepartmental ideas, would a situation like the above be possible without getting it checked off first? And is it even reasonable/acceptable in the current form? I am rather curious to know the answers or any thoughts generated from this.
  13. Type: Dionea Lore, Naming convention. Basic Description: Giving them a title prefix similar to Mr or Ms before the last word in their name to make referring to them by others easier. At current I suggest 'Ges.' An abbreviation of Gestalt. As such "Leaf that Grasps the Sky" or "Wind Howling through Ocean" would become "Ges Sky" or "Ges Ocean" for a formal shortening or Gestalt Sky/Ocean in an extended format. Reason: Some of the names are long and several character act in a formal manner where they will routinely call people by their relevant title and surname. Dionea have never had from what I can tell a clean organised way to separate their name formally, and are often just referred to it by the most designating word in it when using a shortened version, an this has always come off and a casual or far from formal tone to it. An given Dionea are non-gendered a title not related to occupation seems helpful. [mention]SleepyWolf[/mention]
