  1. What happens when you ask Alexa to play Despacito on Paradise Station? She gets an ion bolt to the chest
  2. Murder requires intent. I feel like in your case, this would be, at worst, manslaughter, since you were honestly trying to perform a requested service for someone. Not having the paperwork makes this a little hard to prove, however, which is why you always have paperwork on hand for any borging. At that point, the person may have realized there was an error in communication, or they consent to the borging and you're good to go.
  3. Because ICly, what happens is that the shuttle is called for auto transfer. Supposedly the crew's getting shipped off somewhere else to go work.
  4. The vote isn't IC, it's an OOC vote. That's why dead people, observers, and even terror spiders can vote to end the shift.
  5. Half the people not voting is probs because they know it's gonna be crew transfer 99% of the time, not that they don't care either way.
  6. Great story! This is the kind of shenanigans changeling is all about. Well done on your impersonation of that sec officer! And hey, this story proves that the end result of greentext doesn't matter, it's all about the journey
  7. Speaking of minimum values: one way to disincentivize breaking out of your cell early on, since resetting the timer gets linearly worse the longer you spend brigged, is to say "add enough time to reset the timer, or five minutes, whichever results in the longer sentence". This will make it so that if you try to break out of your cell 1 second into your sentence, you will get 5 minutes added instead of 1 second added.
  8. Can't you just press X in hotkey mode to switch hands? The real reason why officers are told to patrol in pairs
  9. Empirically, drones are an incredibly difficult role because they were designed to be hands off fun little things for ghosts to do but the reality was much different. In fact, tg just removed drones entirely cause they were too much of a mess for admins to handle. Drones even had a static overlay where they couldn't see who crew members were and tg STILL removed them. In the words of one of their admins, drones are "infinite all access ghosts that require admin micromanagement because they're only allowed to build and ignore people in a multiplayer game and they get in trouble when their buildings impact those other people in a multiplayer game" That's just drones on their own without being emagable. It's already extremely difficult to avoid interfering with the round as a drone, and now you decry the removal of the temptation to throw off those chains and become an agent if chaos that requires the attention of half the station to catch and destroy? My intention with the drone nerfs initially was to move them into a support role. I presented a bunch of nerfs that would work towards accomplishing that goal and also took some ideas from the PR discussion. Staff wanted to move the emagged drone into more of a targeted sabotage role, which I thought was pretty cool too. And I think you maybe right that five minutes may be too short to accomplish some forms of sabotage. However I'm tired of arguments that drones are just like any other convertible role. They are not. And no amount of theorycrafting is going to change the fact that this is empirically false, which can be attested to both by our staff and the staff of other servers, none of whom have antag drones and one of whom have removed maint drones entirely.
  10. I love how Aurora Caelus brings crew of all kind together to enjoy the view! One of my favorite events.
  11. Depends on your definition of fun. Emagged maint drone isn't "fun" in the sense of you get to robust people, but it's not that different from normal maint drone play in that you're just doing your job but in an evil way. The "emag = death" thing is helpful in that it incentivizes drones to run away from being emagged. Before the changes, drones would run toward antags to get emagged all the time.
  12. I think the goal on that change may have been to make emagged drones a sort of sabotage helper. Since drones had their combat capabilities severely nerfed anyways, they weren't really meant at that point to be killing things. The idea is that you can use your drone to do targeted sabotage that can't be traced back to you.
  13. Edit: I'm so sorry. I couldn't resist. Can we make officially trialmins not count for this thread?
  14. I'll second Neca on this. It's not like it's a death match between antags and security. Antags aren't always working together or working at the same time. Some will be backstabbing each other, others will be sitting around biding their time. It's not as simple as making it a 1:1 ratio.
