Pro QM here. Hack the MULE so it moves faster, and so it can carry abnormal loads (like people), and that's it. Don't EVER touch anything else.

When you're pulsing wires, look for:
*the load platform clunks*
*the drive motor whines briefly*

There will be more than one wire that have these effects. ONLY CUT ONE OF EACH. You should have two cut wires on the MULE when you're done, one for each effect.

Once that's done, get delivering! Or, ride the MULE to the shuttle!

Just read a book on Asimov's Laws and it followed them to the letter except in the case of cyborgs.

Cyborgs were exempt from the rules as they did not have the three laws programmed into their brain like other robots did.

So I'm just wondering why cyborgs in SS13 are forced to follow the Laws if they still retain free will.

>> No.12011347

They're expected to obey the AI, actually.

>> No.12011436


And the AI is bounded by the three laws. Or what ever laws thus programmed into the AI. The AI by default is programmed with the classic three rules. The AI is supposed to follow all rules, and in relation, all cyborgs follow the AI.

Thus why the AI is a target for traitors.

Before you wrench the table, make sure it isn't reinforced. If it is reinforced, use a welder on it first to weaken it, THEN use the wrench.

>Any links to instructions on taking apart/building stuff?

>What does a pointer -do-?
A pinpointer? It points toward the direction of the nuclear disk relative to where it is at the moment (If you're holding the pinpointer, it will point toward the disk relative to the space you are standing on, real-time). If the disk is currently on the space you are standing on or in your possession, it will show a black, blinking dot.

Some of the stuff a few of the admins have been doing recently is really irritating. It can really fuck up traitor goals when a person has to deal with constant shit being thrown at them from outside forces.

>> No.12013801

Alright, where are the forums, big bug to post:

Turning a borg into a syndicate borg doesn't do anything. They still have the old AI laws.

So you have to go change the AI laws, at which point - why bother making them a syndicate borg in the first place?

This problem just reared its head in the current game. I made a syndieborg who immediately tattled on the revs, then got the captain to change the AI laws so he could murder everyone who wasn't a head on the station.

The player in question was IMO a complete jerk as well.

I think the issue admins are Herp and Ted, because they're the most prone to spawning shit and messing up rounds. (We all know about Ted's banana gag.)

If so then I wouldn't have a reason to play on the goon servers anymore. With security as my favorite job, it's too hard when all radio talk and channels is/are the same color.

>> No.12018551

Cyborgs could do with something different to indicate when they're syndicate. Like maybe blue eyes/highlights or something instead of red.

Just saying this because the red antennas don't match up on the other cyborg body types and are hard to see.

Also, syndicate cyborgs have the default AI laws right now. There's nothing telling them to listen to the guy who emagged them.

As for other additions... I wouldn't mind seeing atmospherics made useful. Have a valve thing that canisters and air pumps can connect to for each type of air composition in atmo so you can fill up empty canisters when needed. Also increase throughput so that it doesn't take 5 years for the air in atmo to slowly leak into the rest of the station. At the same time make it less complicated and easier for people to figure out what they're doing.

If you can show me how to used the byond editoer thing, I could try and do all of this myself. I have no clue how to script, but if building parts of the station is as simple as placing tiles and shit down, shouldn't be too much of a problem.

It was added, but it's only one color. The command channel is the same color as the medical and engineering channels.

Finally give in to /tg/ and install SS13.
First game: get shown some of the very basics of the game by a bro-tier engineer (at least I think he was an engie...). Survive until AI wins round by taking control.
Second game: Spawn as assistant. You are a Rev leader!
Oh shi-.jpg
Wander around in tunnels with no idea what/how to play as a rev leader. Meet 2nd rev leader (the janitor) hiding in his supply room. He spawns pistol and rounds from my headset, we make plan to wander around inconspicuously and try to kill targets.
I wander off and see some guy wander into the brig dragging a flashed dude. Follow him in, ask id he needs any help, but warn him I don't know how much help I can be as I am totally new to the game.

Suddenly, in walks captain, closely followed by janitor rev. Janitor rev waits for opportune time then attacks captain, knocks him down and cuffs him before getting knocked down (maybe killed? I don't know). Captain runs and hides in the sec office trying to uncuff himself. I stand around waiting for him to emerge, periodically asking if someone can come open the door for me as I can't get out. Captain finally emerges, I grab revolver from backpack and start beating him down with it. Converted dude joins me in the beatdown. Captain gets up to run away but I manage to gun him down.

Room starts filling with people. Security cyborg, tech-priest, some other guy, so I leg it out of the door. No idea where other Heads are, so instead I wander around cutting wires on cameras. Operator 3 (the clown) sees me covered in blood and barely alive (the captain didn't go down without a fight) and after my explaining I'm new and got caught in a fight between sec and revs, he heals me to full (something I didn't know how to do). A while after he does this, I notice someone say they cloned the captain (oh shit!) but he is braindead (thank fuck). Continue with camera disabling.

Wander around looking for heads and cutting cameras, when suddenly lagspike! Turns out one of the other revs (no idea who) planted a massive bomb that blew the station in half. I wander over, neglect to notice the lack or air and the cold, and nearly die before I can figure out how to get my internals working. Wander over to medbay area where medbot and clown both look after me. Wander around station being generally useless, asking anyone if they need a hand and cutting cameras whenever there's no-one around. Eventually cyborg comes up and arrests me for snipping cameras, marches me to the medbay to be confined (no access across to the sec area). All I can think of is "SHIT SHIT SHIT the revolver is still in my backpack! Holy fuck don't check there please". Luckily, cyborg and sec officer settle for getting me healed and locked in for 4 mins, despite bro-clown's protestations that I'm an alright guy. Sit around in cell till bro-clown comes in, uncuffs me and lets me out. Wander around the now alien infested station searching for heads to kill. Find none, wander around until nearly getting killed by alien. Medbot saves me again.

This continues until the admins offer the option of a one-on-one fight to the death between the last rev leader and the last head on the station. The battledome is fixed up with admin magic and myself and the head are ported in. After we finally get it set up (which took longer due to my misunderstanding and running out to attack the head too early :P), we go to meet in the ring of combat. He is already waiting for me as I step through the door, move towards him and promptly trip on the shards of glass and fall over, dropping my weaponry. He runs over and starts beating me, but then drops his weapons too to make it a fair fight. I totally miss this, stand up and grab a weapon to beat him down with. Only when everyone is calling cheat do I notice he is unarmed. I drop my weapon, swap from harm to help, and wake him up so we can fight. He gets up, knocks me down immediately, strips me of my armour and proceeds to choke me to death, with the arena then being blown up by an admin bomb to finish the round.

This will clearly be the pinnacle of my SS13 career, even though I had no clue what I was doing and did nothing most of the time.
Best part was the reaction when people saw I was the traitor, as everyone had known me as the noob player wandering around as an unwanted assistant looking for someone to help. Was wonderful. I see now why /tg/ is so obsessed with this game.

Oh, and now I actually know how to resist choking etc, so if I'm ever in a one-on-one deathmatch again I will actually be able to try and defend myself a bit more :P

This is >>12014119.

Just joined /tg/ server as security officer. Go around, kit up, see people keep leaving fucking Security doors wide open. Respond to call about a supercharged monkey using flashes and dancing around in EVA. While there, assistant walks up to me and tries to hit me a few times with a screwdriver.

Not wanting to risk a lucky hit, and since this guy just sorta attacked me out of nowhere, I stun him (set to disarm) and cuff him, with the intention of just questioning him afterward when he's not a threat and then letting him go.

Space Lawyer who just witnessed this runs up and starts arguing about derp derp you need evidence derp derp I didn't see it I was watching the monkey. Janitor runs up, cleans up the tile between us despite it being empty. I walk into that tile a few moments later while arguing with the Lawyer, and it must've been space lube, since I just dropped on the spot.

Then the Lawyer and the Assistant strip me of everything I have on the spot.

You can't set the station atmosphere to 66% plasma, 33% oxygen. I've tried before. It takes WAY too long. Plasma becomes visible at about 1% concentration, at which point people start busting into atmo or someone lights it all on fire. You will *never* get 66% concentration. I've even set a bunch of pumps up on the goon server to only pump toxins into atmospherics, and the best I could get was around 30-40% before the round ended and that was confined solely to toxins.

The biggest problem is that the atmosphere pumps/system throughput is too low. You can't actually move enough air quickly enough for it to have any effect on the station. And if throughput is increased too much you'll probably end up with rooms where everything gets blown away/sucked by air vents on the station, so there's gonna be an upper limit on what you can do.

Posted in another thread by I want to summarize it here:

Survival Station 13 concept.

Small crew of 4-5 people lands on a giant space station (which takes up the whole Z-Level) after receiving a distress call. Their goal can be something like: find retrieve the Captain, fix the station's engine, etc, before escaping alive.
They have a different job: two soldiers, one medic, one engineer, and a commander. The job determines what gear the character spawns with and what their role in the game is. Soldiers would have body armor and helmets, engineers a toolbox, etc.
One or two of those people is a traitor and may have a goal contradictory to the team. Such as making sure the team does not reach the Captain, eliminating a specific crew member, stealing an artifact, etc.

A few other players may play characters who were crew members of the station with one being the antagonist. The antagonist may be an alien, changeling, a supernatural psychopath, or the ship's AI. The antagonist is concerned with eliminating the new arrivals and getting out on their or some other shuttle, or another goal.

NPCs would also be present mostly in the form of aliens or killer cyborgs but they would be rare. Most of the focus would be on fixing up the station and breaking in to places which require it. Likewise, the whole station would be in different states of fucked up, requiring the team to work together.
