Please omg yes. We need ways to get firing pins when HoS/Warden aren't around.

I do not agree that making science "a gun factory" by removing firing pins entirely on a HRP server is bad (scientists randomly giving guns to people should be regulated by administrative means, as no sane person would hand out experimental, highly lethal (possibly including the user) laser prototypes to anyone who asks => making science into a "gun factory" is solely LRP on the scientist's behalf), or that science will become "a gun factory" every round (considering most scientists touch guns next to never,  and even more rarely does security team remember or care enough to notice scientists making guns), and roboticists can make immensely more powerful mechs without these stupid limitations anyway, and not to mention the general absolute uninvolvedness of Science in anything, but whatever. I guess this is Arrow's judgement that he does not want to argue with science players about, considering he gave the reason on not removing firing pins on a channel most people lack access to.

To clear something up: The "channel that most people do not have access to" is called "Discord Direct Message" (Naturally only two people have access to DMs)
I talked with @Scheveningen in DMs about making pins producible by science.

I am also not aware of all conversations going on.
So if you want to have my input on something, then it might be a good idea to actually ask me about my input instead of making a passive-aggressive post on the forums.

Generally speaking, DMs are the most effective and direct method for me to speak to whomever I need to in order to, well, get what I want done, really.

Arrow's advice has been nothing other than helpful largely in changing features the way that is still fair and balanced for the game state.

I am not someone who commonly shares discussions in DMs, but in short there were good points made from both sides. Ultimately the !FUN! argument has to concede to 'fair and balanced' one every once in awhile. I have suggested and will suggest that anyone who has a bone to pick with the status quo of how firing pins are balanced to make a suggestion thread and make their points from there.

Alternatively, if you are a contributor and avid on making the changes to propose yourself, you can speak to any array of the devs for their input on what ideas you have.
