Isolate Ridiculous Hairstyles to Antagonists

Recommended Posts

There are certain hair styles that either are or were in the game that are pretty out there, like the infamous floor-length braid and most recently 'bedhead 5', which are totally silly in their massiveness, and as a result they are deemed 'unfit for the server' and removed from the code.  This make sense when hairstyles are universal to race and people can come to work with hair so long they'd be tripping over it or be unable to walk easily through doors, or otherwise just not be practical for the workplace.

But they're still fun.  And it would be nice if these hairstyles could still be used in certain scenarios, like off-station antagonists such as wizards, raiders, and ninjas, who don't have to give a fuck about workplace safety.  Rather than consigning them to the 'bad meme' bin and deleting them, we put these silly hairstyles aside for use on non-crew characters only.

-- we could review that rather than gimmicking an already bad feature would not make them any better and instead come to the collective realization that deleting the aesthetically bad hairstyles that do not have shading depth would not be a total loss to the codebase.

Theatre wigs make sense. Having them be antag-only is very odd, because visitors and characters who aren't NT personnel (excluding contractors in positions requiring proper maintenance of the hair, like anything that isn't civilian) don't really have any reason to be excluded from them. I say this as someone who despises those hair styles, too.

If they're to be kept, rather than be antag-only, have them be civilian/visitor/non-Corporate only. Otherwise just keep them gone because the only wizards and antags I saw with them were spastics acting like children (Amusingly, the same crowd that had them on-station).

I personally don't like them, but I think people should style their characters however they want. If they don't mind their character looking silly..then..whatever?

I'd rather not have bullshit like bedhead 5 at all, personally. Giving them to antagonists doesn't really solve the problem of the hairstyles looking like 1) shit or 2) being utterly ridicolous.

I want the stupid/meme hairstyles removed like the next guy, but I don't want the selection to be too limiting, too. I don't know, the only good solution is probably someone sacrificing a LOT of time to re-do or make new hairstyles in bulk.

Not supporting. We already have some people getting out of their way to MG the roundtype and whatnot at the first message or sign of a gimmick, imagine if you made some hairstyles antag-only.

We are. Not even close to this being an issue.

I don't think the period is meant to be there. lol He means we are no where close to limiting our selection if we removed the more memy hairstyles such as FLB and Bed5.

I don't want them antag locked. I want them gone. *shrug* Why would a raider have a floor length braid? Does she snatch it on every door way? Can we grab her by the thing and helicopter her around in a circle (as both concepts of helicoptering a person and a FLB are ridiculous). Maybe a Druid... I could see the wizard having one, but it doesn't fit with any other antag.

Just nix 'em.

my neon pink flb janitor.....

Seriously, we should get rid of them, though. 

By the way, nothing stopping a spriter from making less outlandish versions of the two hairstyles. Or at least the FLB. I have no idea what bedhead5 looks like.

Original PR that added this: https://github.com/Aurorastation/Aurora.3/pull/6900
Removal PR in Progress: https://github.com/Aurorastation/Aurora.3/pull/7901

Bedhead 5 and Bedhead 4 doesn't really bother me but can be less "thicc". Kaedwuff seems to be the only person who has an issue with removal of Bedhead 5.

To isolate unique hairstyle to antagonists only puts them on the obvious spot and we have people who will learn OOC information and be OOCly prepared to do anything defensively when antagonist confront them offensively.

bedhead 5 gang rise up

More seriously I still need to spend some time with a mirror in deciding which hairstyles to axe that aren't the proposed ones. Bedhead 5 will probably go not because it's not funny, but rather it's not practical for a heavy roleplay environment at all.

These are the hairstyles you find problematic?

I didn't know bedhead5 but....this does not look too bad? What exactly is the problem with it? Bedhead4 actually looks good, please dont crucify me for this.

It's called bed head but the I my way to attain that level of S T Y L E would.be through heavy product use. 

 

I don't mind whacky styles tbh as this is 2462 and not 2019 working in a office for Amazon.
