Constructable Armour

Recommended Posts

Seeing as how you can make weapons out of rods, cables, and metal, you should be able to construct armour.


Chest Armour: Constructable by taking a steel sheet, use a welder on it to weld 2 holes into it. You would then have to do the same to a 2nd plate. Afterwards, use cables on both welded plates and put the 2 cabled plates togather to create a armour vest. Could be done with plastic, steel, and plasteel which would provide better armour ratings in such order.

Knowing the community, This could lead to a sudden disappearance of valuable plasteel/metal that the station could damn well use for things that are not antag-hunting.


So nay on the armor, Because a few people running amock in said makeshift armor would lead to it being taken away, or people rushing area's like EVA or robotics to jack the metal there.

While yes, that could be a issue if it was implemented, we already have constructable weapons and there isn't that big a issue with people doing so for them. Chances are, like with constructable weapons, most people won't make them.

seeing how it only takes 2 sheets and a bit of cable coil, a 50 full stack would armor up 25 crew members, i doubt we will ever have that many Vlad Edd Mchunter onboard, worst case scenarios we would have useless stools disappearing from the chapel and the dorms

This is a reminder that within fifteen minutes of adding the baseball bats, Mirkolo murdered somebody with one as a non-antag.


If people want to abuse things, they will. I'm up for the armor, but it'll have to have downsides. I can't see it fitting in a satchel or a backpack, but I can see it slowing you down a bit, probably by the same margin of the heavy officer vest.
