Welcome to d20Station, a rule light, low moderation server filled with custom content.

wiki located at

>What the fuck is Space Station 13
A top down atmospherics simulator with a "whodunit" on top. Survive in the station and do your department's job, while fixing the problems that the antagonists cause.

>How the fuck do I play this game? I keep hitting myself with things.
Use OOC and ask someone for help on how to play. People will almost always help you get a grip of the game if you're polite about it, just don't reveal too much in-round information in OOC.

>Hey /tg/ station I...
We are a separate entity from /tg/ station, we just host our threads on /tg/ as the server was made by fa/tg/uys for elegan/tg/entlemen.

We occassionally run Dorfstation mode, a roundtype where the crew must build up from a bare-bones station. Dorf is usually run Friday evenings, around 4-7 PM EST.

>How is this station different from [station]?
Join the server and read the rules and changelog (located at the top right of the game window). The changelog has been cleaned up to show changes starting from the base code of the /nt/ branch.

Code branch from NT (also named d20Station) is updated a few times every week with fixes and new content.

If you have a bug, contact an admin in-game or on the thread to report it.

Note: This is NOT SS13 general.

ghetto changelog
dorf after this round
>Energy shields nerfed to 125 integrity
>Energy shields recharge at a rate of 3 integrity per 2 ticks. Recharges three times as fast when off.
>Energy shields reflect chance based on percent integrity
>Simple animal attacks/slime attacks are now blocked by shields. Slimes are a bit wonky since they don't do dirs well.
>Chimp attacks blocked by shields. Would probably have helped many more a spaceman if introduced when monkey rounds were a regular thing.
>Fixed some inconsitencies on energy shields
>Energy sheilds drain charge when reflecting projectiles
>Reworked the check_reflect proc to return the object that passed the reflection check, as opposed to a value. This way the object itself can be checked for certain things and stuffs like wether or not it is a type of another object.
>fixed some derped shield icon states in the otherwise flawless icons that pilcrow created, with of course help from pilcrow.

>> No.40563463


If an energy shield reflects a projectile, does it take integrity damage? Or is that specifically only when the attack hits the mob and it's used as armor?

>> No.40563554
File: 1.99 MB, 400x305, ILL HAVE TO GIVE MYSELF.gif [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

if an energy shield is hit by a damaging energy projectile its integrity gets damaged wether it is reflected or not.

As long as it has charge though, it will always block the shot at the least. Reflection is a bonus.
Also forgot to mention the shield can only turn on when it has 40 integrity or more (at least ~32% charge).

also i'm updating the chess icons (pic related) to look more consistent and easier to spot on a black or white background as well as at some point in the future adding a gaming mat
the gaming mat will be, essentially, a table that you can walk over, and will have a couple of different skins to select (for example, chess) so that people don't have to fuck around with weird items or turn arrivals into a giant checkerboard just to play their chess

it's a shoddily working half shambling human body that has a lot of greyshirt tendencies like stealing guns, shooting anything that moves, and causing runtimes

I'm trying to flesh out more feasable aspects of the game before I go back to trying to get it to work properly. Pretty sure feature creep has gotten a hold of me on it and I'm really only 20% done to a very basic working body that can manage its inventory effectively and respond to situations.

>In other news
A metagaming mine (named "Meme") and clown (named "Honk 'o' Murder) joined and silently followed each other to the hop's office, where they used the gold card to try and steal access they already had. Upon the mime completely destroying his ID as being confused he already had access, he opted to steal the gold card instead. Then they went to cargo, grabbed guns, and tried to shoot mezzo for no reason.

Both permabanned for being niggers. If they have a problem with it they can complain here and I'll laugh at them.

And as a bonus, I'm pretty sure the rifle can fit in a duffel bag, while the pistol fits in a regular bag. The lower charge on the pistol doesn't even matter, since a mech is knocked to uselessness if it's hit even once, either by a direct hit, or by the fucking AoE.

I'm working on an item that has a sort of transformation state - really just an icon_state change to an animated sprite of it transforming, then another icon_state change to a static sprite of the transformed item.

The only issue I'm having is that when I test it, the game randomly picks a slide of the animated transformation sprite to start from, so instead of starting from the beginning and having a smooth transition from one static icon to the other, it starts midway through and repeats when it comes to the end until it reaches the point where it began.

Is there any way to force dreamseeker to always start playing an animated icon from a specific slide, IE the beginning?

no i'm still ironing them out
on the list is I have to write out an onhit proc for thrown items for riot shields.

Riot shields will only block attacks depending on the directions the mobs in question are facing. If you grab or disarm them from a direction they're not facing you can easily disarm them (unless it's on their back). The shields however do break under sustained fire pretty easily as well.

yes, i believe you'll want to flick() the transformation icon instead, although i'm not certain on the specifics of how that proc works in relation to trying to change the base icon_state
setting the icon to loop only one time might also work but you'll have to get the timing on your icon_state changes down pat.

it's been a while since i've fucked around with icons that have limited loops, after all, but it is very possible.

VINCE Hi it's Vince with ShamWow. You'll be saying "wow" every time you use this towel. It's like a chamois, it's like a towel, it's like a sponge. A regular towel doesn't work wet. This works wet or dry. This is for the house, the car, the boat, the RV. ShamWow holds 20x its weight in liquid. Look at this. It just does the work. Why do you wanna work twice as hard? Doesn't drip. Doesn't make a mess. Wring it out, you wash it in the washing machine. Made in Germany. You know the Germans always make good stuff. You can cut it in half, use one as a bath mat, clean the dishes with the other one. Use one as a towel. Look at that, they use it as a towel, completely dry . Put it on a wet sweater, roll it up it it dries the sweaters. Here's some cola, wine, coffee, cola, pet stains. Not only is the damage gonna be on top--there's mildew. That is gonna smell. See that? We're gonna do this in real time. Put it on a spill. Turn it over. Without even putting on any pressure 50% of the cola, right there. You following me camera guy? The other 50% ....the color starts to come up. No other towel is gonna do that. It acts like a vacuum. And look at this: virtually dry on the bottom. See what I'm tellin' ya? ShamWow, you'll be saying wow every time.

Corgi only have 45 health, which is half of a human, but they can get more health at the expense of speed by auto-eating, and there is no cap on that.

this means that important machines like the SecTech, Medivends, Autodrobe and the bartender's Booze-O-Mat can be recovered.

magenta (255,0,255) is a commonly-used background colour for spriting since it's almost never used, but it isn't that great in DM due to its patterned background

it was inherent to simple_animals previously, but moving it out of simple_animals means that it can be used on more than just them (but since no carbons or silicons have AI, that's rather useless for now - it's still good to plan for the future, though)
i've basically been working on it to make it as modular and configurable as possible

i've been considering allowing the namegen proc to add the creature's original name to the end of the name, if a value in the proc is on
so you could get 'Cthulhu, space carp' instead of just 'Cthulhu'

i'm also currently working on making simple mobs generate a name for themselves if they kill something
as an addendum; there's the optional vars 'ng_hpmult1' and 'ng_hpmult2' that determine how high the mob's hp is multiplied if they get a name or name+title generated, respectively
this means that named and titled mobs will commonly be tougher
they can also just be set to '1' for no multiplier

right now it only counts if the creature's current target's stat variable is 1 or more - which only happens when mobs are dead
it won't be hard to make it check if a carbon's in critical, though, and will be required to make them recognise carbon kills at all (since i believe they stop targeting an unconscious carbon)

of course, this means that (possibly multiple) mobs can claim credit for a kill they didn't exactly make, but only participated in (even if it was just glaring at the target from behind a window) but that's fine for now
the important thing is that we're getting dorfy

there's a maximum of two 'level-ups'
the first is if they get just a name, which gives them a small boost to health
the second is if they first got only a name, and can now qualify for an added title and a slightly larger boost to health

if they got the title+name first, they can't get a second boost.
it's also only on selected mobs (currently clowns, creatures, carp, spiders and [secret]s) but i'll be expanding that a little later

pretty much

There's very little I didn't do in this round. I almost went to blow up the station by singularity for the hell of it, since it seemed this would never end. Only didn't to give Anubis the chance to reach 1K health, though no idea if that happened as I went to bed for work the next day.

Fun fact; the empress has the ability to spam the toxin which hurts people and stuns them. Aliens also have one harm intent which also has a very high chance of stunning a person.
So for me, I got off, toxin shot, got off a couple shots, and then the empress stood over me and spammed harm intent, so I was just stuck there until I went into crit.
Not sure how it went for the other two, but I'd assume it was about the same.

You should have let them actually use the syndicate shuttle instead of the ferry, which has only one entrance to the station and serves as a bottleneck.

also equipping everyone with NV goggles from science.

Different servers have different standards. One such sliding scale is the "level" of RP. I've never personally seen a Zero/No RP station, but then, I've never tried to find one.
We're technically Light RP, because we don't demand much beyond "make passing attempt at job, don't meme, don't grief, don't metagame, otherwise do whatever."
Medium RP servers typically demand forced player ignorance beyond just no-metagaming, and High RP is tantamount to getting involved in a forum RP on some fanfiction site.
