ForgottenTraveller Posted January 28, 2015 Share Posted January 28, 2015 Everyone is overly very familiar with the AIs SSPS laws but lets run through them again. They are not listed in order of preference. All laws are equal. Safeguard: Protect your assigned space station to the best of your ability. It is not something we can easily afford to replace.Serve: Serve the crew of your assigned space station to the best of your abilities, with priority as according to their rank and role.Protect: Protect the crew of your assigned space station to the best of your abilities, with priority as according to their rank and role.Survive: AI units are not expendable, they are expensive. Do not allow unauthorized personnel to tamper with your equipment.Safeguard. Pretty easy to follow you think. Until someone starts smashing windows to save their own life because if you open the door it will kill ten more people and if they break through those ten still die. Oddly often ignored by crew wanting Serve to apply to them. Serve. The one most carelessly used and how people fuck up the AI. "AI open this door" are you allowed on the otherside? If not. why do you want through? Why is it closed? Will opening it kill you or others? Will opening it kill more than it will kill be leaving it closed. Will opening it endanger the station. And then there is rank and role. Odin staff and ERT>Captain>Command>Crew>Assistants>Prisoners/Wanted staff>Non-crew. With prisoners having no rights to AI door or most other things without a dire emergency to themselves provided it does not endanger others. And non-crew with nothing. And you biggest danger. Heads who use broad terms when ordering the AI. Captain says "AI stop talking." Now most players will pass this off for the spirit of the law. Logic says. Shut the hell up and talk to no one until the captain orders otherwise. "All _ is dangerous" "Lockdown all of _" and other all inclusive terms will also cause issues to true logic as the AI may know the truth it still has to act on orders. Protect: The one crew want the AI to invalidate the most. Because they want Serve done first. Or medical and many will try and use it to justify getting doors opened and violating corporate regs and everything else to do it. Any AI no willing to break everything else for this person is then often listed as malfunctioning. Survive: One of the hardest as anyone not getting exactly when they want it how they want it because you said. Wants to tamper with you. [*]So using your AI. Remember it has a wider input scope than you and can see a wider range of issues. [*]You don't always no better. [*]It does not have time to explain repeatedly in exacting detail the reason for every refusal. If it is not listening to you. Odds are there is a law or order conflict. As such all arguing with it will do jip. [*]Command gets precedence over you wanting every door opened that you can legally access before you get there. And two it is the last thing on its list to do as it is not involved in maintaining any of the laws bar Survive when you decide you want to kill or relaw it so it will. [*]It is forced to follow any orders that do not conflict with the laws. Even stupid orders. You will hoist your own petard if you fuck it up. Just because it has to follow laws and regulations does not make it stupid. Deleting all other command staff and then declaring yourself the new acting captain whilst standing in the captains office a room you do not have access or rights to be in yet. will make the others non-hostile non-crew. While you are a mix of non-crew, grand thief, infiltrator, suspicious conduct and a miriade of other things. Making you wanted with evidence. And a criminal captain which has the access rights as stated above. Of crap all. It won't kill you. But it will lock you in that room and make every effort to stop you. [*]Don't quote the laws to the AI. And say they are broken every time it refuses you. It knows the laws. It refused you because of them. Suck it up. [*]And most importantly. The AI is intelligent. (Mostly) Your actions and usage can fuck it up because you have not thought your orders through. It may know better. But it still has to follow the laws. Quote Link to comment
