You know, it's funny. Before I moved here (but knew I was going to), I was afraid it was going to be full of people like that pic, but I've lived here for 6 years now and I've only seen one person in a cowboy hat the whole time I've been here, and he was Mexican.
Everyone here is pretty average and normal, to be honest. I do hate their accent though.
Austin being "different" than the rest of Texas is essentially a meme. It is very similar to other large metropolitan areas north of Houston.
Everything south of Houston is majority Mexican so it's obviously different there.

What, no mention of niggers?
When I was living out of my car I would drive down there during the winter. Every restaurant I went to was pretty rough, fast food or otherwise. I also drove across route 70 and 75 for the hell of it so that might explain why I saw roadkill gators.
Probably. Lizards slow down when it gets cold. In the winter you can find those big fucking Monitor lizards and just pick them up. They can't do a thing.
Not too sure about the fast food, but considering I lived here all my life I couldn't really tell you.
Functionality is complete, all that remains is a new sprite since mine are all for machine versions and some criticism from the unwashed masses.
Thanks for that correction earlier N3X15, it just werks.
>someone capped that
Good times. Glad it survived the archive crash.
DnD ought to make a comeback
If Deity Link is around, wanted to thank you for all the work on the new handtele portals, had a great deal of fun with them last night. The transfer of momentum feels perfect, and closing portals early from either side nearly brought tears to my eyes.
The only thing I'd say is that in open space, the old portals worked as an object with collision, meaning opening one would stop you mid-drift the same as catwalks or spiderwebs, whereas the new ones do not. Is there any way to make the new spaced-error red portals act the same as the old ones? Or is it working as intended that I'm shot into deep space?
I personally don't mind tossing one of my crayons into the nether to send me back through the portal, but I'm mostly concerned that anyone sent into space through a prank gone wrong wouldn't have the reflexes to save themselves.
Also big thanks to N3X15 for the work he did fixing up speech and telecomms, all scripts tested and working with the new code, special characters no longer break and silicon speech is kept in it's original font.
It's a good day for clowns.
There's also a lot of easy combinations you can make by crushing dexalin, kelotane, inaprovaline, etc pills right into the beaker. Can also bypass the need for plasma this way. Won't get into that since you don't really need to know too much into it, these recipes will serve you just fine. That, and I haven't yet mastered the Bob Dylan way of chemistry yet, which is very different from just normally making shit in a beaker based on the cheat sheet.
Anyway, general medbay stuff as a doctor/paramed/whatever
Go to medbay storage (room underneath cryo), grab a medical tool belt. Take your medikit, grab one bruise pack and one ointment, a syringe of inaprov if chem is stupid and doesn't make pills, and throw away the medikit. You can put syringes, bruise packs, ointment, pills, pill bottles, basically anything medical related in the tool belt. Next, grab a medical HUD. Pretty self explanatory, they show life bars.
Health analyzer in your pocket slot for fast access. Dexalin Plus is your best friend, along with inaprovaline. Dex + will heal ALL suffocation damage even with a 1u pill. Inaprov will make it so they stop taking oxy damage in crit. Useful for anyone in crit, they basically won't die. Toxin damage can be treated with anti toxin, I like 30u pills but chemistry rarely does that. Burn damage can be treated with kelotane or dermaline. Dermaline being better, but they stack on top of each other so you can use both for even more healing, so it's good to have keloderm pills. Brute damage is bicaridine. You can also throw people in a sleeper if they're not in crit and pump them with bicaridine, kelotane, inaprovaline, anti-toxin, and sopofiric (sleep toxin, does what it implies)
If a patient comes in with internal bleeding, help speed up the process by bashing his head in with an extinguisher and sending him off to be cloned. Keep doing this until coders fix this horrendously broken mechanic.
>help speed up the process by bashing his head in with an extinguisher and sending him off to be cloned
This is too tempting sometimes. Speedcloning is so much easier, and it's more likely to keep a player in the round than twenty minutes of surgery and transfusions.
Blood loss can be treated with blood bags as well as Iron pills. You can't overdose on Iron and the more Iron the more blood, so 50u pills are best.
Surgery is easy. Everything can be conveniently looked up on the wiki in 5 seconds and you'll be good to go to treat whatever is wrong with the person.
Speaking of which, the green looking sleepers (advanced body scanners) will help identify broken/fractured bones, foreign bodies, paralysis damage, and etc.
Cryo is for shitters who want to solve everything by throwing people into a tank. Forget a cryo mix, you're a man, and men fix their patients with reagents, surgery, and other various oddities.
The little auto-injectors you spawn with are pretty good, they have doctors delight in them, which is basically a better tricord which heals all damage. Useful in a pinch if you have nothing else on you.
Chloral is your best friend for taking out greytiding shitters. Put some in a syringe, load it into a syringe gun and shoot it at the shitter. 15u and over is lethal. Just don't make it every round for no reason unless something happens first with people fucking around in medbay.

>I like 30u pills but chemistry rarely does that
What about other pills? I only really know that you don't need more than one unit of dex+ and that's it.
And what's up with internal bleeding? Last i remember you had to open guy up and apply bruise thing everywhere, or something. I could be wrong though, don't remember much about medbay.
How do you utilize space cleaner? Recipe is very simple but you can only make bottles of that. Do you splash them into a bucket and mop with it? Is there no way to transfer it to a sprinkler bottle?
I'd like to clear up a misconception.
DON'T MAKE 1U DEX+ PILLS and ABSOLUTELY DO NOT EVER PUT ONLY 1U DEX+ IN THE CRYOMIX.
1u is enough to instantly cure all suffocation damage, sure, but they will continue to take suffocation damage, which is hugely important. A 10u Dex+ pill makes your patient IMMUNE to suffocation damage for about two minutes, which is a lot better than having to give him a pill every 30 seconds if they're in crit or if you actually want to give them blood.
Dex+ is extremely easy to make in large quantities, make use of it
No, actually do make a cryo mix don't listen to him. One part cryo to clonex is good enough at round start. I dissolve in pills as I make them to add to the mix as the round goes on. Generally speaking you should reserve it for finishing clones or critical patients
as in -50 or higherbut towards the end of the round it's good to have available when you're juggling five people. And you will be juggling, believe me.
You can subsist on 10u anti-toxins, 10u alks, and 1u ryes. Everything else is just convenience really. But you should make at least thirty or more of those three things at round start, after you add the clonex to cryo and make some cloner meat. Otherwise you're going to have a dysfunctional department and a shitty round.
As a general rule stick any crit shitters in there to get a quick idea of what's going on before shoving them in the advanced scanner. Then make a judgement call as to what to do.

Get yourself a good Borer and a gibber like what the chef has in their back room, get the borer to research Peridaxon, get full on chemicals, then infest a humanized Monkey. It then injects the Peridaxon into the monkey, jumps out, you put the monkey human in the gibber, and grind up the meat in a grinder for about 120u peridax across the 3 pieces of meat

It takes about 1 minute of actual work to make surgery obsolete for an hour, while the borer can just chill in your head for preperation which'll take about 15 minutes from it being born and getting in your noggin.
Versus the RNG fuckery that is botany that could yield no results, I'd take Borer exploitation any day.
Jetpack with stabilizer enabled.
If you're talking about Dmitri's corpse the second time, I don't know how he didn't switch to the next z-level because he sure as hell didn't have the nuke disk.

And I was the only antag to die before round end. The other antags seemingly did nothing antag-like. At least compared to what I did
if you can't juggle five shitters inbetween your fingers without cryo, you don't deserve to be in my wild ride.
fam peridaxon only heals about half the types of surgery you'll have to do, and surgery itself only takes a minute
furthermore you're being dishonest when you say it takes a minute of actual work because it will definitely take more than one minute of preparation
>not just making dex+/inaprov all in one pill
also the only reason that fucker shouldn't be healing within thirty seconds is because of internal bleeding, in which case don't waste your pills, smash the patient into the nearest window.
giving someone dex+ and then just injecting inaprov into them works just as well too, especially since inaprov is literally all over medbay, like there's tons of it.
Well, you're saying it's too much effort to farm peridaxon which only has a few steps then it's just put it into pill form, but it takes effort to do surgery which is more steps and therefore more effort per patient. Your logic is flawed, friend.
And I'm not your fam, buddy!

>tfw want to move to Santa Monica of Beverly but don't make enough money per year
I had 5 in there before I got caught.
Sec was surprisingly nice to me considering all I had done.
this so much.
I was like, must keep moving before they recognize me, can't move while throwing up, health ticking down, need more antitox/tricord, need more nutriments, out of cash, etc...
If I hadn't fucked up at the very end I just might have killed Anne Tagg for good.
It's not the process of curing internal bleeding that's bad, it's the fact that people die so quickly from it that you have absolutely no chance in hell of even performing the surgery in time before they just out right die on you.
And usually when someone with internal bleeding comes into medbay, they're already at incredibly low health or crit, making it even more impossible to heal them in time.
Hence you may as well just help kill them faster since the only option at that point after they're dead is to be cloned, as defibbing will just cause them to pretty much instantly die upon revival.
Think of it like pulling the plug on life support, or putting down your dog so you don't have to see it suffer any more.
It's nicer than that these days, I live about 3 miles south of Lanark Park
Reminder the only reason that Beverly Hills doesn't look just like that is because of obscene rent prices and the BHPD force the homeless to relocate, also the city of Beverly Hills pays for all the streets to be kept clean of trash and shit.
I still find that hard to believe given every single person I've seen with internal bleeding dies within 30 seconds.
I'm not the only one noticing this either, there's a PR on the github about how ridiculously broken bleeding is, specifically with internal bleeding.
If you get any kind of projectile launched into you, even if it's just one shot, good night irene.
a good fix would be to make bloodbags have more than 200u
they only bring people back to like 60% right now. they're supposed to be used for light blood loss but pills are far better for that unless you're trying to defib a body with low blood.
but you cant get internal bleeding without an external wound, sooo that would still mean internal bleeding is the problem
you'll be dying faster then blood can be pumped into you.
>Most women are attractive without make-up
Have you actually been face to face with a girl who was actually not wearing make-up?
Most aren't extremely attractive. Skin blemishes, bags under eyes, poor complexion.
once you've got internal bleeding you're already fucked up on the outside

I'd just be mad as fuck at the clown. Would've done my best to get out and robust him in the fucking face. SPACE LUBE ISN'T FUNNY AND I WILL VALID YOU FOR IT AND STRIP AND LOCK YOUR CORPSE IN THE JANITOR'S CLOSET.
Rei holy shit I already explained this to you long ago with pomf backing me up. Internal bleeding is mild as fuck, the incredibly broken part is EXTERNAL bleeding.
>that would still mean internal bleeding is the problem
In what fucking world does this make any sense?
space lube is funny to watch until everyone starts pushing and shoving and I end up getting slipped too
people are lying if they say they don't enjoy watching people slip on space lube
No, not at all. External bleeding will fuck you up readily enough, because it, by itself, is the problem. Internal bleeding is just the difference between losing one arm, and one arm and an ear.
Yup, but O- takes time via the drip, with the blood reagent from blood tomatoes you just eat a pill of the stuff, or just straight eat a blood tomato, and bang, it's in your system.
Small request, can "Internal bleeding detected" be made bold on the health scanner report?
Maybe even not require the body scanner to see where? It'd be nice if it showed up like external bleeding does. How can the health scanner detect internal bleeding but not know where, anyway?
No.The Janitor, merely by existing and using his mop+bucket, is griefing anyone near him. Regardless of whether he places signs or not it will be too late because people will have moved too fast.
not really, if you look at the code >>118956012 external bleeding is w.damage/4, internal is 15/4, most weapons do 15 anyway, meaning that the two are basically the same, unless you have some projectile gun that does 30 or 40 or some shit, in which case you would still have both ticking at the same time.
kinda like how derm and kelo tick at the same time. derm is better, but having both derm and kelo is the best.
So I just started my Systems Analysis, Design and Integration class at CTU, and the individual assignment chain that carries throughout the class is planning and constructing a basic application or digital system.
Before I pick something trivial for easy work, figured I'd ask if there are any ideas for new fun systems in ss13? Current examples would be the accounts management system or how ordering things via cargo works.
>latejoin game two minutes before the shuttle docks
question for atmos cucks
If I'm atmos antag could I divert the main air supply to go to a space cooling loop and freeze the station?
Can I make a room freezing cold by some heat exchange system?
When do you ever take only 15 brute damage and bleed out? Yes, the argument was specifically about 30-40 brute firearms, which are the main cause of internal bleeding. Also, if you get slashed twice with a 15 force weapon, it counts as one slash with a 30 force, bleed volume wise.

it just makes the chance supremely low, and I believe the only round type that it can even happen is auto traitor.
cargo ordering needs a new HTML UI. Someone made a really nice UI, but did it in NanoUI which lags the game to death and we're moving away from it.

when will it ever reach that high unless done in by something like a point blank shotgun though?
you can get internal bleeding with something as little as a few fire extinguisher hits
It's easier than that.
Head to behind the CO2, Plasma, and N2O miners, break the windows there, and wrench up the distro pipe. Link that to a few thermal plates and the station's gonna freeze eventually. Bonus points if you fiddle with the Junction that swaps Waste to Space to Waste to Distro to freeze it all again.
Being able to put pressure on a bleeding wound to stop bleeding after a length of time when?
CPR not needing masks removed since modern CPR is just chest compressions when?
Bruise packs would still be valuable since pressure wouldn't heal brute damage, only stop bleeding.

nothing is broken as far as internal bleeding goes though outside of potential of stacking internal bleeding wounds. that's what my point was isinternal bleeding is typically trivial compared to the wounds that happened to cause the internal bleed to begin with.
I dunno. It literally gives you a message saying you feel compelled to be loyal to Nanotrasen. I always roleplay it as literal as I can if I was antag and even start shit with staff if they show insubordination to glorious nanotrasen, going as far as unceremoniously executing them for treason. All for the glory of nanotrasen.
I don't really understand how people don't go with it. You really do get a message saying it, and theirs no follow up saying your syndicate training prevents it from working or something. It's fun being an antag who can kill greyshitters for security freely.
Stuns aren't so bad, but I think combat would be more fun if the disarm intent didn't have pushing.
It'd be more fighting over a weapon or punching eachother in the face/dick then.
Literally rape because it's a holdover from either bay or TG and back in the day they allowed for it.
I don't think suicides count. Or they shouldn't at least. Slitting your wrists with some glass in perma is hardly a blaze of glory.
Wrestling brought back
Boxing gloves that make you miss less often and be able to hit faster, maybe increase weaken chance. Can't aim at the groin(below the belt) while wearing them.
A judo gi that makes you start grabs at aggressive hands, and a karate gi that causes you to block punches and melee weapons(weapons causing damage to your arms instead).

>literal terraria guns
I'll never get over how fucking awful that is.
Maybe I should make a PR to add Zappers and Super Scopes in as weapons
If I had to pick, the things that need the most work for xenoarch are these. The green and pink crystals look too simple and amateurish in game. The rest I'm pretty sure are from pre-2010 or something.

Say that shit again, TG*, I fukken dare you.
and some things like cable coils will always be the same.
Yeah, I get that its a nice throwback but some of them just look awful and nostalgia should be less prominent and watered down by more high quality artifact sprites. That would be nice.
Looking voer the image, it looks like all we still have are cable coils, cables on plating, circuit boards, muzzles, and linen baskets. There are some that are very similar but have changed. Like SMES's and toolboxes.
Have some Justice™, instead.
If you code it as well then people rarely reject things like that.
If you just sprite it then it usually sits around for a while and maybe someone uses it.
We have a lot of spriters and a fair amount of coders, but like ideas they often have their own sprites.

This is the product of the times. I couldn't believe my eyes when someone said the other day we're at "our lowest player counts ever" (fortunately he admitted at the end he was just fucking with us). For me, 23-28 is the perfect, fully-staffed station.
But we're in a world of people accustomed to 60-player shifts now.
It's only metagaming if I act on the information. I didn't. I just chose not to do something that would require 15-20 minutes of setup only for the station to explode before I've finished.
You imply that our rules changed because a bunch of bay migrants, when the rulemakers have been here since basically the beginning.

>but chickens don't shoot anything out of their forehead
Visual puns don't have to be completely literally correct.
The comic opened with the other guy having the chicken in his pants and making a visual pun by saying "Look how big my cock is!"
Does that visual pun make any less sense because a chicken is not literally a human penis?
This image is fucking retarded
Why would you edit the fallout version. It looks like shit. Why the fuck is security wearing power armor. Why are sechuds worn over the helmet?
Why wouldn't you just literally draw over the Parks and Rec scene this is literally ripped from where it would just be normal fucking humans.
"Space Law is a guideline" is a stance adopted by greytide who want to be dindus or sec officers who want to be the Punisher.
Real laws are a "guideline" as well, it's just that everyone enforces them the same way because there are other people who will take action against them if they don't.
The reason so many people believe that Space Law is just a guideline is because no one rides Security for ignoring it.
We need more lawyers who will draw Centcomm's attention to Sec officers not abiding the law.
sorry, but the comic is shit and while it's easy to see what he was going for, or she, whatever, they failed.

because eggs are at least related to chickens. random ejaculation coming out of a chickens forehead doesn't add up to anything.
the comic is all about puns and comparisons, with the guy stroking his "cock" (chicken) and then all of a sudden it just ejaculates because "haha get the joke yet? got it? didnt get it from the other panels? dicks ejaculate, get it? i was making a pun" instead of just letting the reader figure out the pun.
thats not even remotely the same. that pun/comparison actually makes sense. a chicken is referred to as a cock sometimes. hence what the entire comic is about.
>you can't break the laws of physics to make jokes
What are you going to do about it, fuccboi? Call the joke police?
>Getting at an image posted on a Japanese anime image board
Lighten up bro shit
Clown uses banana peels to slip people in magical, physics-defying artificial gravity every day, nigga
the joke wasn't the chicken/cock thing, the joke was that the second guy is so good at visual puns that he can do that. It's basically the same joke as this http://art.penny-arcade.com/photos/215497326_sk9Ln/0/1050x10000/215497326_sk9Ln-1050x10000.jpg

reel it in a litte, bro. You're approaching sperg territory. You don't want to go there.
Here's the whole comic so you idiots can actually be informed about the thing you're arguing about.
That looks so much better.
Because there's no punishment for security being rogue as fuck
Nobody, not even sec even pretends to respect authority. The chain of command to the entire playerbase is the chain that hooks their rottweiler selves, foaming at the mouth and in a constant barrage of snarls and barks, to a stake.
If the captain ever tries to reprimand a head or a security officer, they get butt blasted, decide their loyalty implant/inherent loyalty to nanotrasen means a total of dick, and throw every pretense of self out the window to get revenge on the "comdom" for thinking he is better than they are. The only time I've ever seen a Captain discipline his security team is when that fallout 2 enclave sergeant gimmick captain broke an officer's legs and skull for killing a traitor in custody without his say so. Security went after him hard, but he was one of our few robust captains and managed to push security's shit in and layed down who was top dog after spacing the head of security for mutiny.
We can't rely on that, however, because captains are never robust these days, so you can be damn sure that they are never going to step on anybody's toes lest they get arrested and demoted for actually acting like a leader.
There needs to be more admin interaction in this regard. A captain smacking the shit out of an officer who went full Judge Dredd that gets arrested and demoted should warrant Centcomm flipping their shit.
Announcements, visits from centcomm officials/navy captains backed by armed forces yelling and waving guns around why the fuck the most important man in the entire station is in cuffs. And "he was a comdom" should not be a valid excuse.
This is a high-ranking military executive of a massively fucking malicious and Brazil-esque megacorporation. Short of the captain literally gunning people down in the halls, the first and last words you say should be *salute and sir respectively.
You're currently the only person who I know is an Admin. Do you have the power to whitelist me?
I've been playing the server nearly a week but once or twice a day apparently the panic bunker gets put up, and as soon as I disconnect, whenever I rejoin my connection is cut nd I'm redirected to fucking bay.
Won my first traitor round, and I'm trying to play more. Have you seen this problem before?
I can't whitelist people. The bunker keeps getting re-enabled because we don't want to deal with fags joining to fuck shit up on their age 0 accounts, and the panic bunker is blocking you for whatever reason. Talk to pomf.
That's fair enough. I just keep getting people saying that it shouldn't be a problem if I've played, and others saying "witelisted frend ;)". I'll just keep stalking around I suppose.
>There needs to be more admin interaction in this regard. A captain smacking the shit out of an officer who went full Judge Dredd that gets arrested and demoted should warrant Centcomm flipping their shit.
I banned a guy today from the server for spacing the CE and from engineering for ignoring the CEs reasonable orders then after being demoted spacing the CE.
'when you ahelp it'
I think he means IC admin interaction.
Banning Sec officers for violating space law just enforces the idea of no fun allowed nazi admins.
Centcomm itself should take a more active role in administrating the heads of staff/captain.
Well, I was gonna go to bed, anyway.
Beautiful murderboning and rage cage, crew.
It was a good day.
>not making medbay's life hell for the fun of it, anyway
Look at this guy.
I swear to God, look at him.
Shame about the laser blazing captain against the Green Hulkster.
Comdom just needs to learn more about our culture.
whoops forgot picture
Oh right, sorry. I forgot we're not allowed to agree with anyone here.
uhhh ur a faget? I guess?
I always respect and listen to the Captain until they prove themselves to be an assistant with all-access. A perfect Captain would be as robust as the HoS should be, would make rounds around the station to ask how every department is doing, would order the crew to make sure work gets done and demote people who don't listen, and would secure that fukken disk.
It's probably happened plenty of times in the history of rounds, but I saw a security team, six man strong and armed to the teeth, try to arrest and subsequently get robusted by Barack Obama as Captain for the first time. I can't forget it, that's what Captains should be.
I wish IC admin interaction wasn't so sporadic too. Sometimes an ERT can only be sent when requested even if nobody alive can get to the console, sometimes Centcom knows something is up and sends them on their own.
Captain should have something like an emergency button, where pressing it gets Centcom listening and an ERT prepped right away.
If you play Captain and security rebels against you for your reasonable enforcement of space law I will send your deathsquid.
But I'm not seeing this happen so we'll cross that river when we get to it.
>tfw always addressing the captain and head of security as "sir"
>tfw always saluting when they arrive in the brig
>tfw always announcing the captain's arrival, "Captain on deck!"
>tfw always deferring to their authority
>Sending in death commandos, a group used to erase all evidence for when someone sneezes on the captain
An ERT would be fine
Deathsquad should be reserved for the most anti-corporate of all threats.
Like Nuke Ops dressing the captain up in a schoolgirl outfit and parading him around the station.
Doing this to your husbando
He notices you
Spessmen see deathsquads as exterminators.
Everyone runs from a deathsquad, everyone fights against a deathsquad, no one trusts a deathsquad.
If your intention is anything except "murderdeathkill every living thing on the station" you should send an ERT.

Holy fuck I should've checked it out
Why won't admin husbano notice me
and accept my friend request so I can play the god damned server.
Deathsquad makes more sense for NT to have.
Also they've kind of evolved beyond the point that SWAT were at. SWAT and Syndicate SWAT (now known as nuke ops) were evenly matched forces (SWAT had slightly better armor). Now the Syndicate have the black ops team to match Nanotrasen Deathsquad.
The funny thing is, Black Ops are so underused their age shows in their shuttle. Used to be Deathsquad couldn't recall their shuttle. It would give a message like "Complete your mission, soldier". So when Black Ops were added a couple years later, they too couldn't recall their shuttle with a message "The Syndicate won't allow a strike team to recall."
Now deathsquad can recall their shuttle as they please, but black ops aren't given the opportunity to return to the mothership.
>not instilling a sense of comradery between you and your men over the course of a round
>not trying to inspire the crew to be salmon against the current in the face of shitty rounds
There's a time and a place for reprimands, but I'm not going to turn around and be a 40k commissar because some poor kid fucked up. I've been in their shoes and I know how disorganized things can get.
Leadership roles require some social tact too, remember.
I think there should be a middle ground in between death squad and ERT.
In the lore, the syndicate are pissed off at NT because they used their military strength to take over the plasma industry. But right now all we have are the ERT, the engineers, medics, and peace officers, who take care of emergencies, and the death squad, who don't exist, and every station they go on doesn't exist, and everyone on the station never existed. It seems kinda fucking stupid how a lowly assistant first thought when seeing a death squad is to go "VALIDS DETECTED, TIME TO DISARM SPAM", death squad should only be known by the heads, and the heads should piss themselves in the night having nightmares about the fate they will have if they piss off NT hard enough.
There should be a middle ground with a assault force, a private force owned by the NT umbrella that comes in and deals with situations that aren't emergencies that require ERT, but don't need erased to never exist like with the death squad. Captain gone rouge? Don't send in the ERT to not really do anything, and don't send in the death squad to nuke the entire station and kidnap and lobotomize the families of all the crew members. Just send in the armed force to kindly ask the captain to get on their ship to be held for trial back at centcom. Aliens on the ship? ERT might be under armed and death squad should only be sent if you are planing on using white out on all the documentations regarding SS13, send in the armed forces.
Man so much character is added to the lore through this barely used admin-only features.
The idea of a remote ice planet on the fringes of human-inhabited space, thousands of lightyears from any civilization except for some isolationist mining stations, serving as a staging area for Syndicate ops is such a cozy thing.
Or the idea of an ominous black station floating in space, occasionally small transport ships jumping to and fro containing commandos so legendary they are boogeymen.
Even how a destroyed Mauler's description is "Boy, the Syndicate won't like this", that just speaks volumes to just HOW badass the syndicate strike teams are. That somewhere some extremely rich executive in a superbly sharp suit was monitoring the team with a fire going in his office, reclining in his leather executive chair. "Let's see how those Nanotrasen dogs like this on for size" he might be muttering to himself. We never see his face, as if to demonstrate just how shady and private this executive is, all we see is his hand, gently swirling expensive brown liquor around in a glass. Only to watch his unbeatable team of badasses, his boogeymen used to perform high-profile assassinations on rival megacorporation executives get blasted to a fine red paste. Just the image of his hand clenching his glass harder and harder until it breaks in his hand.
There's so much atmosphere that can be expanded upon, SS13 lore has the potential to be really something special.
a shame our coders want to waste that by filling it with memes and references to other media. kind of ruins the atmosphere.
I don't know who but the why was that tators found out that they could easily just open a breach in the oxygen tank and that was enough a reason to call the shuttle since it would be gone forever.
