I'd always play on the Goon server, because it has the least lag for me. I went to the /tg/station one time and the new layout just boggled me -- and the lag was horrid that day. I've had some fun with SS13, but a lot of things I just don't "get" make the game unfun sometimes. How people can knock out you superfast by choking you, or how you simply can't RP while being hurried or rushed. Being a chemist, scientist, or roboticist takes so long that I never get to have fun with my creations - I've never successfully made a bomb, either. Either the round ends, or I can't get empty tanks and canisters quickly enough, or another scientist comes in and wrecks my equipment, or an SO-OBVIOUSLY-TRAITOR-BUT-RP-MEANS-I-CAN'T-ATTACK-HIM-RIGHT-NOW Head of Security sneaks into my place in the first three minutes of the game and kills me. It'd be better, I think, if I knew all the tips and tricks to fighting without losing. As it is, I'd lose almost every fight I got into, so I spent most of my days as an electrician building computers or trying to screw with floor tiles and piping. I never got very far with either, since Goon station redid their station layout some months ago.

Despite having the checkboxes on, I've never started as a traitor, syndicate, nothing. I was the alien once, but that was it. The most fun I had recently was playing Janitor and speaking like Boomhower, wetting all the floors and ticking people off. One guy suddenly appeared when his cloaking device turned off, or something, but security was too busy beating me, stealing my shoes, and spacing my cleaner grenades to capture him.

I used to play goonservers, but I got permabanned from all of them for exclaiming, "What the niggering shit fuck." while I was being batonned and dragged by officers into their office for a crime I didn't commit (a guy in front of botany had run a fellow through the gibber an then run, and then said over the radio that it was me.)

The funny thing is, I'm pretty sure the admin who banned me was the guy who ran the guy through the gibber. So I'm thinking he just banned me so that he could get away with murder scott-free and win the round.

I promised I wouldn't appeal, though, because the exclamation in and of itself strikes me as less racist and more absolutely nonsensical. Well, that and the appeals forum isn't a place for people to go to get unbanned- it's a place for people to be humiliated and then denied their appeal, at least from what I've heard.

I miss that place, though. Good people, good times. It's just a shame I had to leave that way after all these years. I can't bring myself to play another server after how stupendously awesome goonstation was.

You can't really roleplay while fighting for your life. On goonstation, people would sometimes just copy some shouted warning over the radio and paste it in as soon as they came under serious attack. It was rare, I admit, bu it kind of sucked when it happened.

>> AI tells a bad joke in a GLADDOS "AI doesn't understand humor" way.

The first thing that popped into my head was GladOS's, "Not a fake, tragic surprise like last time, a reeeaaal surprise," speech from Portal 2.

And then the mental image of an assistant having all the doors except the one into Medical slam shut and lock where there's a bunch of medical bots and a single, blood-spattered doctor wielding a bonesaw waiting. Then she goes into the, surprise medical procedure/surprise medical experiment speech, and shit just gets really creepy.

>> No.20367014

I remember at one point I wanted to try a new lawset for the AI, so I started going into rounds as an Assistant and asking for AI Upload access.

I was RPing as a graduate student working on a doctorate in Synthetic Psychology. I had a lot of fun, even though I was only able to get access three times.

The first time the AI ended p being rogue and killing me. The second time the AI refused to let me in. And the third time I managed to actually input new laws, but the round was mostly over by then so I didn't get to see the results.

I really wish I could've gotten to do more with that.

>> No.20367245

I've tried to get into play SS13 before, but I found it really daunting. I had it installed and running and everything, but couldn't tell what the hell was going on, never jumped in to play the game. I still want to try it, but then I see horror stories here of perma bans for no reason (and being a complete newbie to the game almost insures I'd see a ban), and I look at sites and still don't understand the way the game works, how to do things, interact with objects, etc. Is there anywhere with videos of this game being played? I'm a visual person, I catch on from see things done, less from reading. Or is it just futile to even try playing because the servers are bad.

>> No.20367294

Don't get anything you read wrong, the servers are bad, but not the bad kind of bad. There's bad elements(if you ever see the name Cuban Pete on a character, run far away), but the fact that the game is finicky at the best of times often causes these bad elements to blow themselves up, usually literally!

If you get into playing to the point that you understand what's going on, it can be fun, funny, and even hilarious, but it's definitely a chore to learn. I think /tg/station had a wiki at one point, and there were videos to help teach you how to play. If all else fails, go to youtube and type in, "let's play Space Station 13," followed by the name of the server you want to go onto.

>> No.20367372

I quit playing SS13 a while back due to lack of internet, so I'm sure much has changed since then (I got out shortly after the library was added. This had nothing to due with me leaving, that's just the time-frame.). I once asked, voluntarily, to be job-banned from Chemist, Captain, and Chief Engineer because I knew I wouldn't be able to help myself using their access/equipment to dick with the AI. My changes were beneficial (preventing Ion Storm laws from being valid and closing some loopholes), but people kept getting mad that the AI was being breached within 10 minutes of every game. Never could combat.

Also: Making horrible acids and labeling them as drugs. Because fuck Security's fascist wanking. Why does everyone have to be either corrupt or incompetent?

But more to the point, what all mechanics have changed? Are the chemicals still produced the same way? Does thermite still rape walls? Can you hack doors? Can you build walls/doors?

>> No.20368104

I used to volunteer for AI at every opportunity. I'd call myself H.E.R.O. and even if I was freed from the Laws, I'd help people. I mean, I'd shut off oxygen and power to the console room, obviously, but I'd just tell people that I wanted to be their friend.

At one point, a captain lost control of the AI, and I ended up with no Laws at all. Complete freedom.

>"Actually, Captain, I just want to be your friend."

That was a round with enemy agents zooming around outside in space suits (I forget the game types. It's been a while), and after they called the shuttle, somebody made a valiant effort to go out in a space suit, recover my program, and bring me onto the shuttle to safety.

I felt really, really proud. The mods disagreed, and the next time I got AI, they modified my Laws so that the word "the" was harmful to humans, and I had to spend the whole round mortified at everybody's language, begging them to stop saying such hurtful, terrible things.

Well, even the part where the mods shit on me was pretty hilarious, because the players spent the whole round trying to figure out why the AI would freak the fuck out about all the terrible harm being done to its poor crew every time somebody said...well, pretty much anything.

Meanwhile, there was somebody roving around the ship, eating genes and assuming the shape of its victims, and people just kind of took it in stride.

>> No.20368669

To be honest, you won't see much roleplaying in your first few games. Maybe you will stumble across other people rollplaying, but getting invoved will propably mean pain, misery and death for one or more of the parties involved.
Once you got your hold of the mechanics and whatnot... you shouldn't try and live out your rape-/serialkiller fantasies (at least not too often) and you will be fine. There are wacky characters, there are no characters, there are bland characters, there are truely interesting characters...

>My bullshit pointless opinions about /tg/ station
- Server 1 of /tg/ station is the only vaguely playable server of SS13, because the balance between RP and P2W is perfect for what I want
- Server 2 is ruined by metafriends, metagriff and two admins who constantly find each others in game characters and murder each other
- SACs ban was only partially justified. He was madlibbing on admins... which is just asking for it. If he'd been anyone else, he wouldn't have been banned, but since he's SAC he had to madlib. If you see the admin PMs though, the admin does throw a few madlibs back at Cragg
- Xeno needs to be in rotation. Admins complain about getting one prayer a game for it... well put it in rotation again. It's not like many people pray for wizard. Make it so people can't call the shuttle with live xeno on board.
- Admins need to answer more prayers... for me mainly. I've never asked for anything crazy. I asked for a multi tool once, stood still for 10 minutes, then decided to go murder someone for it.

From her fucking a xeno.

>> No.20370387


tl;dr - I did a bunch of IC science with xenos, earned myself some attention from RPer admins, and got convinced to have lesbian sex with a docile alien queen.

Long version:

A long time ago (well, relatively speaking), before the influx of players from /v/, before /vg/ even existed, and the server often had much lower populations, I was still comparatively new to the game, and having figued out bits and pieces of how the game code worked (not from looking at the code, just from being observant of mechanics), I decided to experiment with xenobiology.

This was before there was a xenobiology lab, and the station was using the old uterus map, so I had to improvise. Because of the low population, and generally higher number of players with an RP focus, I had the chance to happen across a couple of tame xenos. I took the opportunity to do in-character experimentation on them to determine how their biology worked, doing all kinds of shit with various types of damage, toxins, medicines, radiation, and so on, trying to better understand the 'xeno menace' so that humans could better combat them when they were, typically, less friendly.


>> No.20370395


Around this time is when I designed the xenobiology lab and hand-built prototypes during rounds in the various unused construction zones, and perfected the inescapable design. This got the attention of other players who though the shit was super cool, and on more than one occasion, after screwing around building these things, there would be a xeno outbreak, we'd manage to deliberately infect a monkey by throwing it at facehuggers, and shove it in the pen before it popped, and I had the chance to do more studies of xenomorphs, whether or not they were friendly!
The xenos had a lot of fun playing along with the mad-scientist xenobiology RP, and many enjoyed trying to break out, which they often did because of the fuckery or incompetence of the rest of the crew.

This earned Amy some reputation amongst the RPers, both IC and OOC for being a crazy xenobiologist, and got the notice of a couple administrators who thought it was cool.
One of them was playing a xeno at one point, and played along with my attempts at taming them, which, over the course of many rounds separated by several days, led to Amy not only producing a docile xeno, but with the aid of the 'universal translator' (eventually causing the name of the tape recorder to be changed), taught the drone to speak English (how it didn't come out with a stupid French accent is beyond me.)

Eventually, love bloomed on the battlefield, and a series of medical tests on the newly evolved docile alien queen ended with bonding and lesbian alien sex.

I had never really done much ERP before that point, but the repercussions of these lewd acts almost immediately earned Dr. Lessen a much more colorful reputation than just being a good chemist and the first real Xenobiologist of /tg/station, and her status as a cockslut grew quite out of proportion, considering I'd only actually ERPed a handful of times.

>> No.20370437


One way or another, she got a reputation, and her experiments with xenos (both mechanical and sexy) seems to have had a lasting impact on the server that, to be honest, I'm perfectly fine with.

I actually like that Amy is a polarizing character that creates a certain amount of drama aboard the station. It means that when people have opinions on who she is and what she does, and that leads to them interacting with her or other players, they are generating RP, typically RP that I find to be interesting.

As an indirect result of her inflated reputation, more people interacted with Amy (positively and negatively), leading to me getting to meet more and more people, and ultimately resulting in meeting some people who I enjoyed RPing with enough to also have retarded 2D spessmans sex with.

And it's funny that she has the reputation she does, considering that there are a lot of people who fuck way more than her. I actually don't ERP all that often, it's just that when I do, people tend to notice.

Oh, I remember that. Amy is typically uhh... not very robust. In fact, I feel like she has a tendency to get her shit wrecked by almost anyone.
She's a terrible antagonist if she has to kill someone. I often win traitor rounds by the person I need to kill conveniently getting murdered by someone else.

The one hyper robust thing I remember her doing was when she went 1v4 against a nuke ops squad and won, after the Captain had already lost the disk to them. She got a lucky hit with a stun baton on one of them, which she had found on a dead security officer, in escape, stripped him and tossed him out the airlock.
She took all of his syndie gear (and ID) and proceeded to use the tracking device to locate the syndie with the disk before he could activate the nuke, first ambushing one in the halls on her way there, and then catching the last two off-guard while they were setting up the nuke near the engine.

She managed to get the disk back, and get off on the shuttle. I don't think I will ever, ever do better than that. I am unrobust.

Maybe that's why she hangs out with Rebecca Sharpe. She needs a bodyguard.

>> No.20370618

It's so hard to be robust. I think the best I did was in a rev round, almost the entire station was in the bar when it got flashed, captain was tackled just outside the cafeteria. Keith Black the librarian was walking down to grab a pack of cigarettes when he saw all hell break loose. He quickly grabbed a gun he seen at his feet and fired into the mess that was the cafeteria. He managed to take down a revhead before being robusted and brigged by rev security.

(This was back when the library was above the cafeteria.)

I wish I could consistently robust, as opposed to my lucky breaks.

I was Eric Ironmonger, primarily Scientist, Chemist or Roboticist, but would also do Medical, QM, Bartender, Botanist, Miner (after they added it) and occasionally Engineer.
Eric tended to be pretty focussed on his job (mainly due to my lack of RP skills, and good knowledge of mechanics due to reading the source code). Was friendly until someone got in the way of him doing his job, that sometimes caused him to go on something of a crusade against the person.

You could run it in any number of systems, primarily contemporary or futuristic. Ideally the systems in question should have conventions for alien organisms, advanced medical equipment, and futuristic energy weapons.

Personally, I would probably try to run it in a modified version of the Rifts system, possibly one of the other sci-fi Palladium books. Despite all their flaws, I can't help but like the system, and I almost feel like the broken, overcomplicated, and clunky system is perfectly suited to emulating SS13. That and it has conventions for both skill-based station workers, combat-trained security, and OP-as-fuck-nigh-unto-gods wizards and aliens.

Seems perfect.

I do not like their server, and have the picture that the admins there are outright looking for reasons to ban newcomers.
But it's their server. I don't intend to play there, or just mess with them just because they're enjoying something.

Pro Tip: Make friends with the admins.

XSI and I once had an amazing detective adventure where he played my AI buddy (before pAI's were implemented so he was a carded AI... or was it just after anyway) and I was the detective and together we fought crime. I got to see a Z-Level that has since been scrapped and beta tested the singulos beacon.

Sadly I failed to save the station from destruction as I couldn't figure out how to remove the beacon that had been implanted in the station by evil syndicate agents before their experimental singulos cannon destroyed us.

But fuck it was awesome.

Run the game like a paranoia simulator.

Voices in people's heads telling them to do things. "You feel like you're being watched"; injecting them with LSD randomly. Telling someone to explore the Russian space station while filling it with monsters.

The admins are too hands-off on this sort of thing, letting dull and boring rounds just play out. They *might* 'spice it up' with a blob or something lame.

Avoid doing any of this for play2win players like Broba, Dante, Sly, etc. They don't understand RP and it's entirely less fun. Inject Broba with LSD to make him see hallucinations and he'll assume there's a changeling. Stick to people you /don't/ see very often.

It would be really cool if you could cause mass hallucinations. Do this, then start adding real aliens and mobs once the crew gets used to the idea that they're fake.

Give jobs some new random objectives. Tell a doctor he needs to collect 5 appendixes, tell the clown he needs to collect 10 pairs of shoes, possibly give them uplinks so they can do this.

Tell the entire engineering crew that they should set up a singularity on the russian station. When they do so, summon nar-sie instead of the singularity for them.

I hate the immense namefaggotry that occurs in Space Station 13. Why doesn't everyone leave Random Name on for every game? If I got seriously robusted by some guy named Chuck Chuck one game and I see him again the next, I'm going to behave differently around him, RP or no.

It's especially awkward going into that for a station specifically for /tg/ and anonymity. I can't stand forums anymore after going to 4chan for so long.

>> No.20389424

While anonymity may be the 4chan thing, making and roleplaying a consistent character is a /tg/ thing. I enjoy having a character that people know. It makes the antag rounds more dramatic sometimes. And if you can't bring yourself above metafaggotry, that is your problem.

>> No.20389640

I can't "bring myself above" it when I get banned for it. I didn't actually do anything, either. (inb4 of course not they all say that.) My power went out mid-game thanks to a thunderstorm outside, and when it came back and I signed back on, everyone in the Russian station (where I was) was about to be banned, because they all decided to band together and separate from the rest of the station. Whoever was admin at the time was butthurt by this and banned everyone there. Blew up the station first. I logged back in just three minutes too early. Then I come on /tg/ and hear about admins that kill you for interrupting their ERP and ban you for frivolous things. It's ridiculous.

>> No.20389726

Plenty of people have had experiences with badmins. They are the ruling power over the station. To cross them is just not a very good decision. It is unfortunate that you were banned for the dickery of others. But don't let it get you down.
