So I saw some Space Station 13 threads awhile back, and was wanting to ask a few questions about it. Any answers would be helpful, so thank you.1: Is the game good from an RP perspective?2: Are any of the servers/stations free, or do they all require you to have donated to the site?3: What is the gameplay like?4: Do you find that most people who play the game play it "correctly" (correctly being that they actually try to do more than be murder-hobos in space) or are they mostly murder-hobos?5: Do any of you have some good tips for a beginner? I'm at least going to try it a few times to see if I like it, and during those few times I'd like to know what I'm doing.6: Got any funny stories?
Back in the day on goonservers, when disease research was still a thing and before they made all the computers function like unix, back when it was Donut Station, I got a little zealous with bomb making, back when the max blast radius was still larger than 14 or so squares. I managed to produce something like 11 or so bombs, and while not a traitor, I wanted to make sure that I took the traitors out, getting more and more paranoid as I fervishly put together the devices. I had stored bombs in every single mail chute around the station, hiding them in backpacks looted from the crew quarters. I had intended to provoke the traitor into sending the signal to detonate the bombs to make it easier to spot and capture the traitor, as they'd be fiddling around with a PDA or signal transmitter, but my paranoia at this point was too great. As the escape shuttle pulled into the escape arm, I freaked the fuck out when a guy came at me with a toy sword, convinced I had found the traitor I triggered the explosion.I instantly gibbed and the game hung for about 5 minutes as it calculated all the bombs going off, killing over 90% of the people on the station, people are flipping their shit in OOC chat, no one escaped on the shuttle, and as a ghost, I saw my destruction, there was less than 5% of the station usable and air was rapidly leaking out, everyone in the escape arm was dead, the few people alive were struggling to not be sucked into space, there was almost nothing left of donut station.I got banned for a week and they tweaked the everloving fuck out of bomb making so such a tragedy could never occur again, making it so bombs cook slower and you can't make as many, and capping their blast radius.
>>27168502From an RP perspective, the game can be good, though most players favor when complete chaos breaks out, like kudzu or a blob or a zombie outbreak or something that makes the traitor's job that much harder like a randomly appointed wizard during a nuke round.All of the servers/stations are free, but goonserver have a special chat for those who have signed up for something awful forums, but have special disdain for those who get an SA account JUST for SS13.The gameplay is clusterfucky as fuck. It's barely intuitive as there's a lot of contradictory things everywhere, such as eating food involves clicking on yourself but if you do that with a banana, you jam it in your eye and can go blind, you have to peel it first in your hand by clicking on it in your hand, then click it again to eat it. Most people do play it sorta correctly, though once chaos breaks out or traitors make themselves super well-known, usually all bets are off.
>>27169058You got banned for that? Seems like a good bit of fun. I don't like games where people ban for every little thing.
>>27169199I got banned because the lag was so bad the round wouldn't reset and it required like 6 mods to figure out what the fuck actually happened that the game broke. Also for killing EVERYONE while not being a traitor.
>>271685021. Depends on the server, they range from Kittenshack's griff filled Aliens vs Humans all day to /tg/station's meta as hard as you can just don't let anyone find out to baystation's autistic if you don't roleplay the way we tell you to we'll permaban you, fucknugget.2. I have never seen a server you have to donate to play on and that sounds like a shitty server if you have to3. Gameplay is 2D no stops on the lagtrain find how many ways to kill yourself while trying to do your job simulator, which is surprisingly fun4. I only play on /tg/station and everyone who isn't a blatant newfriend that wants to toolbox people's face plays completely normally, not overly roleplay-wise, but at least doing their job until they get an idea, or shit hits the fan and they either turn into Vietnam War Veterans who will stick a piece of glass on a metal rod and stab you to death with it should the situation call for it, or try to do it anyway and get their shit kicked.5. Play Assistant first, learn how to do a small amount of things, then try cargo tech, learn how to do more stuff. Then evolve from there. I recommend reading the FUCK out of the server's respective wikis and watching a bit of a Let's Play to understand how it is to be an average play.6. One time the funmins decided that the round, it being several hours in and boring as fuck, and needed a reason to get the shuttle called, decided to make four ghosts into a Slimesquad (A deathsquad (Agents sent to usually blow the fuck up out of the station), but with slimes). As one of them, our mission was to assimilate everyone into the greater biomass, IE: Absorb everyone to death and get enough shit hitting the fan for the station to call the shuttle. Fifteen minutes later ended in the entire station, sans maybe five people out of the thirty onboard, eaten by slimes. We also claimed the emergency shuttle for the Slimuloth due to our splitting into more slimes completely covering everything. It was glorious.
>>27169058cuban pete pls go
>>27169058Just a week for destroying the entire station?I got permabanned from /tg/ station for gibbing a changeling with a bomb specifically designed to obliterate a single tile with zero collateral damage. Literally a bomb with a 1x1 blast area.Apparently the "changeling" wasn't a changeling and was just some guy (probably a badmin or badmin's friend) choking people to death in the hallways and using an "extends his probiscus" custom emote. Still bullshit though
>>27169641Multiplayer games with mods are shit.
>>27169641Well, this was Goonstation first off, second off, I was pretty apologetic for making the game unwinnable for the good guys or the traitors.
I read through a couple threads a long time ago and decided to give it a try. The very first round I played I got knocked unconscious by this guy. He dragged me into this room, secured me to a chair, and proceeded to take all my items and torture me until he finally went away. He sealed the room and vented the atmosphere until I suffocated.I never played again.
>>27170326That's all? Wow, you must be a lot of fun at parties.
>>27168502I was a traitor.I had an assassination mission.I caught my target committing a crime, stunned him, and hauled him off towards sec- then took a left turn into a nearby airlock, where I took his radio, ID, and hardsuit, and threw him out the airlock stunned. Target down, mission successful. Nobody suspects a thing. I get back to my station duties...And then as I pass Command, someone familiar appears in front of me..."GUESS WHO MOTHER FUCKER"It's the guy I threw out the airlock. With a fire axe. >OH SHIT RUNLong story short, Sec brigged me for the rest of the round.It turns out he grabbed onto one of the solar arrays. Using his emergency oxygen, he hauled himself back to the station before cold could kill him. > And that's why you check for emergency air when you space people.
I played three classes: HoP, Quartermaster, or Security. I think Security was where I best roleplayed, Quartermmaster was a thief, and everyone hated when Sam Shephard was the HoP "psst!, Clown, trade you all access for your crayons" crayons were ballin'
I miss this game now, especially since I don't have a laptop anymore.Hey, is there any server that still uses the old South Park-style graphics, or are all of them using the new, faggy ones?
>>27170326Sounds like BOOMERThat faggot used to abuse the fuck out of security
>>27169313I used to play on Bay because I liked some of their code. Long story short, I left because the admins were pricks who looked out for their friends and the only way to do anything but "Your Job forever and ever" was to suck admin cock as hard as you could.So I went to /tg/.So then I went to /vg/.
>>27172723A bay veteran who left here, the good times ended long ago. It was swarmed by the furries and ERPers, the actual Bay 12 community drowned out. On that note, I actually found one of the regular xeno players on F-list as their SS-13 special snowflake.
>>27169641Shit ban. Act like antag, get treated like one. Appeal that shit.
I was playing Shaft Miner, and I'd had several consecutive shifts with the same person, which was pretty awesome. We trusted each other to have the others back, that kind of shit.Then he asks me to come into the Dorms after I've finished delivering the latest load of materials. When I get there, he's removed all the inbetween walls, leaving a large 2x8 rectangle. He's also bolted all but one of the doors, and is standing at the far end.When I come in, he bolts the door down that I came in through and throws a parapen and an e-sword at me, telling me he was traitor and I was his target, but he didn't want to kill me because we were such good friends.I picked up the weapons, put the e-sword in my backpack, and approached him. I said 'Thanks for not killing me and such, man. Really good of you.' or something along those lines, and then 'You made a mistake, though. Loyalty to Nanotrasen and such.'I parapenned him, choked him to death and threw his naked body into space, then continued to do my job as Shaft Miner.
>>27177393Sphessmens is so unforgiving, even when you have the chance to forgive.
I keep hearing about Cuban Pete, but always in passing. I've never heard of any of the original stories.Who was he?
I am new to SS13Any pro-tips?
>>27177548He was the king of the Rhumba Beat.He shook his maracas, they went Chic-Chikky-Boom, Chic-Chikky-Boom!
>>27177569You're probably going to die. Or fuck up your job.This is okay.
>>27177569The QM has the wisdom of a falcon.If you play the clown and the station hasn't been drowned in HONK! You are doing it wrong.Pic related, typical shift.
>>27177548Imagine the biggest, nastiest bomb you've ever seen.Times three, produced in the span of three minutes, and carried by someone who knew what he was doing.
>>27177587I was murdered for not owning a TV when the chapels faith was that of Cable TVGranted it was a changeling who said "no tv, no life" but it was amusing none the less>>27177592HONK
>>27177637SS13 plays better when you forget everything negative that happens between rounds.If you made bros with someone, that's cool.If someone murdered you brutally and destroyed the corpse for no apparent reason, then you shouldn't remember it next round.
>>27177704Even though I am new I am trying to play like that. Memory of a goldfish: the round I am in is the only round that has ever happened.
I started on /tg/station a long while back.I started an assistant. You know, try to figure out what was going to go on.I arrived to chaos. Controlled chaos, but still chaos. Wandering past the Medbay, trying to avoid offending anyone, I had a doctor just about grab me and drag me into the Medbay. Turns out he was a philanthropist. Made me an a Doctor In Training. Got me kitted out, taught me the basics of first aid and told me to stay put in Medbay and make myself useful. Said I'd live longer that way.And I did.I made it all the way to the shuttle when shit hit the fan.It was all up from there. Getting a real Doctor's Badge. Learning the basics of being robust, to deal with the occasional troublemaker, how to tranquilize people with the syringe gun and sleep toxin, the various necessary treatments for stranger wounds. All of it.And when to book it or defend the fort.I made it through revolutions, aliens, even the great Honk Plague. All thanks to this one doctor. Can't even remember his name, it's been so long since I drifted away. But I remember that one day, getting a crash course in life saving.
>>27177712>Sleep Toxin>Not a rapid-firing syringe gun with four 15 unit doses of chloral.It's like you didn't even WANT to kill them.
>>27177780I preferred to get up close and personal with my crowbar, and the sleep toxin usually disoriented whoever I dosed with it.
Making food in Hydro Bay, people ask for various stuff and I supply. All-around a good guy, even letting my co-worker whom I had played with for a few rounds make illegal nettles and whatnot.On our third or four round of the same "Guards rape everyone" bullshit, we decided to stock up on tomatoes. Lots and lots of tomatoes.We painted the halls red, drugged down the janitor who was trying to clean up the mess. (He ended up being arrested for "sleeping on the job", but that's a different story) When I was finally arrested, my coworker blackmailed security with giving the clown access to hydro bay. Such a simple threat was enough to let me loose. Oddly enough, the highlight of the round was when everyone started discussing if tomatoes are a fruit, berry or a vegetable.
>>27177786A dosage of Chloral will put someone down a lot faster than sleep toxin will, and if you actually dosed someone with 60 units of Chloral they'd die. Very quickly.
>>27177796I'll keep that in mind.
I played a Shaft Miner last week.Rather than peeling off and looking for lost treasure on the asteroid-usually xenos-I decided to follow the only other Shaft Miner around and help him dig out more of the asteroid and collect ores, all while cracking various 'shaft' jokes of an immoral nature.Long story short, my erstwhile companion put up with it somewhat awkwardly until we took the shuttle back to the station, at which point Sec was messaged via PDA and I was informed that I'd have a lawyer present to defend me in a sexual harrassment suit. The trial was a blast, with me cracking more 'shaft' jokes and getting a decently weighted sentence. We laughed out asses off about it OOC after the round ended.
>>27177792>Fruit or a berry
>>27177819Oh wow, that's awesome.I've never seen the legal system in action. Whenever I end up as Lawyer there's either no real crime going on, or it's something like the wizard that is more of a kill on sight situation, anyway.I usually get a camera and turn into a Journalist or something.
>Be in research>Patrick Bateman and Michael Myers walk inWelp.
>>27177871Trials usually end up with a bombing or everyone screaming like faglords and trying to free the one on trial.
>>27177710>>27177704Corrolary: No matter how forgiving you are of Security, Medlab, etc between rounds, know that each new character you make on each new round has an instinctual fear of Honk Honk
>>27177980>Squeaking footsteps and illumination of maintenance tiles outside your work area.>fear incarnate
>>27170594Always remember; stun, strip, let er rip. If they've got shoes and air, they can get back to the station. if they're stripped bare, they can't do anything to get back.At least, that was before space was made more deadly.
>>27177871A game I was once in had a decent trial, we found that the RD was going crazy breaking into things and hitting people, I was playing detective and had built up substantial evidence including photos, foresnsic evidence, interrogation tapes, the works. We managed to get most of the station into the courtroom with lawyer for the RD, captain as judge and CEng as prosecutor (we would have had HoS but he was a witness). We got through most of the trial pretty quick given the overwhelming and the captain was going to give a sentence of life in the penitentiary when the RD suddenly exploded. Which was pretty bizzare but we then had to rush off anyway because someone found that the RD and Xenologist were part of some crazy alien cult and had been growing an alien hive out of xenology.
In KoDT, the one that B.A. repeatedly pulls on his party is "I am an innocent traveller with a magic item... put everything you own in this bag... and get profits!"The variations on the scam always involve a teleporting gnome who fucks the party over through robbing them blind or stranding them beaten and broken in a bad situation *and* robbed blind.Last time it was a portal to the obsidian maze-tomb of a undead blind mad god, who had *loads* of treasure. The only way in was to take the magic portal. the only way out was to say something really embarrassing like "mommy mommy I wet 'em!". The GM was recording this, naturally, for bragging rights at the local GM meet.Of course, mad god does permanent, irreversible HP damage, and the party put all the loot in the bag... gnome takes bag and teleports away.
>>27178128u wot m8
I think my most memorable story is one of the earlier ones; where most of the station was dead, the command chain was shot to hell, the round had been going for two hours.This was way back when the AI was right next to vacuum; and someone had stolen an EVA suit and was trying to break in. Not well equipped, doing so just with toolbelt alone. Myself, a lone engineer went out to face them, with only stungloves (RIP)We fought in silence outside the AI core, as the AI begged us not to harm each other. Jousting for position, both of us equipped soley with fire extinguishers - he with a baton, myself with my own gloves.And the guy caught me, dead to rights - smacked me right about the face, laying me out - the fire extinguisher spinning in space besides me.I should have died there.He tried to strip me down. Tried to rip off the mask, rip away the oxygen cylinder. -The space wind saved me, blowing me back out of reach. He tried again, moving closer against the grille yet only for the wind to blow once more.-And the third time, there was just enough feeling in my arms for the stun to wear off and for met to tag him with it. He went down, paralysed in space for just that few moment. And out came the fire extinguisher, and slammed into his head, smashing into his visor over and over, bouncing it back and forth against the broken grille surrounding the AI.Until he gasped and gurgled for air, until I peeled him out of that spacesuit, swore at him, hands bloodied - and tossed his cooling corpse into space.Only then was the shuttle called, and only then did the we all escape, finally.The AI thanked me, just before we arrived at nanotrasen. It had been the traitor all along, and had its target killed off earlier in the round - which was why the other came for it. I'd saved a traitor AI.And it was beautiful.
>>27177548>who was cuban pete?Cuban Pete was the hero the station deserved, not the hero the station needed. When he joined the station you had proximately 3 minutes to smash his face in with the nearest toolbox before the station blew to hell and back from massed bombing. And that was before they capped the bomb deadlyness so each of his bombs would remove about half the bloody station, and it wasn't just one bomb you had to find and disarm. No, it was three, or four, or even five at one time. No one knew how he managed to create such deadly bombs in so short a time. But one thing was for certain: when you heard this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GJej6kCgxVM over the radio you knew that shit was about to go down hard.
>>27178309Cuban Pete, first griefer, then security chief, and scientist. He took to the game with studious ability, originally doing roundwide massacres of all on board, before the admins sat him down and told him to shape up or get out. And he did. Stopped griefing, started learning jobs, roleplayed a grizzled HoS. He was a real fun guy, funny, too, if you forgave him for beating your head in.And then he discovered science, and excelled in bombmaking. So much that the bombs had to have a max range cap on them.He has gone, now, but the legend perseveres.
>>27170326Could be worse. One of the first times I played I got beaten to death, cloned, locked in a hastily made cell in the bar with a a taser pack strapped to my back, and forced to play the violin and get zapped for everyone's amusement
>>27177980Clowns should always be valid if they're not in hallways. Just to add to the 'Fuck your shit' of being a Clown.
some one give me a download like for this.shit sound FASCINATING.
I remember a doctor bro somehow changing gender. We went on a quest to try and find someone to help. I think the fat that i was a drunken barkeep with a shotgun didn't help win us friends.
>>27178924That's the magic of a scalpel and a surgeon.
>>27178885It's on Byond.
>>27178941We couldn't find one eventually a rather shady miner tried to help. After the less than stellar result Doc-Bro had to be borged. A few minutes later the station was fucked because the cultists summoned some big bad guy and i never saw my friend again.
Don't know which one to join
>>27179125Go the /vg/ and check out the SS13 general. They have a list of servers, including /tg/ servers.
this is how i med:weld yourself in the security office with an owl mask and shotgun, then calmy explain yourself to anyone who comes past.but should anyone enter the room....oooooo better hope I'm not antagonist!
>>27179572you're not a nice person, are you?
>>27178885See ss13.net for wiki and info and two servers. I've been going there for a while now. Still very un-robust, though.
SS13 Servers here:http://www.byond.com/games/exadv1/spacestation13/tg/station:http://www.ss13.eu/Come on an plaaaay
Playing Research Director for the first time: "someone wants to be turned into an AI" oh shit. i hope my underlings know how to make an AI core. its ok they do... Try to act like i know what i'm doing... co-coordinating with medbay to get the Lobotomy performed. Gotta get all the paperwork stamped by the heads of staff and the captain... Running around.. AI ended up being wiped by some crazy undercover Detective.. then i had to turn one of my engineers into a Borg... looking at the scalpel and circular saw... "so i cut off your head and remove your brain?" engineer:"yes""do we need anesthetic?"engineer: "nope don't worry about it"Borgify him... after botching the first few incisions and saw cuts... Whoops!
>Is the game good from an RP perspective?If you find an RP server with similar-minded people, RP can be really great. Really, really great...>Are any of the servers/stations free, or do they all require you to have donated to the site?Most servers that I'm aware of are free to join, while they do accept donations, it's by no means necessary to enjoy the game.>What is the gameplay like?Confusing as fuck at first, not very user friendly. Once you learn the control scheme, though, there's a deep ocean of possibilities hiding underneath. You can build, destroy, kill, revive, heal the sick or make everyone crazy. You can be a god amongst gods. With some clever thinking, practically anything is possible.>Do you find that most people who play the game play it "correctly" (correctly being that they actually try to do more than be murder-hobos in space) or are they mostly murder-hobos?At this point, it really depends which server you're on. For example, on the US Goon servers (Something Awful's servers I think) RP is barely a thing now and gameplay quickly devolves into a murderfest; WHICH CAN BE FUN IF YOU'RE INTO THAT!>Do any of you have some good tips for a beginner?Read the server recommended wiki starter guide. Start as assistant, declare LOUDLY in OOC chat that you're new. Don't break IC in OOC or OOC in IC unless it's STRICTLY necessary (say, to not get you banned or some such, but if admins aren't going to listen to your side of the story, you've probably found a bad server).But really, read the wiki. Maybe find a Sandbox server and try things out, experiment!
Is it possible to run BYOND in WINE? A lot of people seem to be saying it doesn't work, and I got nowhere trying to make it work.
>>27180004I couldn't get it to work. One of the reasons why I double-boot.
Start up SS13 after long hiatusCheck out old fav server, it's shitCheck out new server, seems alrightJoin as chef, used to be a fav job of mineNotice new stuff lying around, specifically an EFTPOS scannerAsk if anyone knows what it is, it's for wireless transactionsNotice ATMs in the wallsNobody knows how the EFTPOS works, no wiki entry, not even the admins knowLearn by trial and errorBecome Henry Beau, diner chef of Maltese FalconTeach everyone to use EFTPOSHalf of station thinks it's awesome, other half think I'm a traitor for charging money for my foodRound after round, charge money for food as Henry BeauAnd now chefs pretty much uniformly charge money...
I am currently banned from /tg/station because I was playing scientist and nothing happened all round so I still had all my bombs intact when it came time for the shuttle. During the shuttleride, right when I was setting the timers for an end of the round explosion, some asshole set off a flashbang which caused me to jump and accidentally click on the "open" button of the tank valve. The admins didn't believe that it was an accident, and so I am banned till sometime in october I think.
>>27180212IT WAS YOOOOOOOOOOOOOU!
>try to get into game>some asshole trying to paradox the AI every single time>dragged into a stall by a traitor and beaten until I joined them>abducted by some insane scientist and made into a cyborg against my will while security passively looked onYeah... nah. I could maybe look over how stupidly clunky it is, but this some bullshit.
>>27180778>Find another server>Stop bitchin'
>>27168502SS13 is good if you have a good admin (knows what he is doing, checks out peoples stories for validity, doesn't just favor his fucking friends). Otherwise it's bullshit. OP's picture just about sums up my experience as security chief. We literally had the most sloppy traitors in existence but we couldn't do anything about because "SECURITY ABUSE." Also loved the "WTF, WHERE WAS SECURITY?!?" when half the station exploded. Fuck this game, never playing it again.
>start game as traitor security>need to steal magboots>acquire said magboots as some other traitors seek to destroy the station with atmos funstuff>join up with other security bro and be best security>eventually the entire station is on fire>bro security burns to death, and I burn trying to get him out of there>Sometimes there's more to the game than killing everyone
Third game I ever played.I joined as a Cargo Technician.Only other guy there was the Quarter Master.He told me to move crates onto the conveyor belt.I fucked up, moved the first one to the wrong belt, the QM took it to the right one, patiently told me to take the other ones to this one, left to do QM things.I took all the normal crates, asked over radio about the special crates, he told me to take those too.Half-way through, he ran in, grabbed me, dragged me to an out-of-the-way room, told me about how a syndicate member tried to shoot him.So in interest of survival, he took me to an escape pod, welded us in.Time passed, we talked, the pod ejected, we got away safely.,I know it seems stupid, and pointless, but I enjoyed that for reasons inexplicable.
>>27180212>>27180496Actually sounds nice. Was kinda getting tired of random people bursting into the bar and asking for as many pan-galactic gargle blasters as they could drink before passing out and sueing me the next day.
The secret for enjoying SS13, for me, is to not care about winning and just have other fun when you inevitably die. It's like paranoia, without 6 lives.
Mainly I played as a roboticist.One rev round I spent the entire time passing flashes to one of the rev heads, being a head myself. Over time, I pimped out a Gygax and gave my trusty rev assistant one of his own. We stormed the brig where the heads were holed up in a wave of robotic fury. Watching them shit themselves was hilarious.
>>27180903your biggest problem was playing security
>>27181090See, I've had shitty rounds as Sec one or twice, but for the most part its been pretty good.It sucks that in the time it takes to type "Halt, citizen!" they've almost always either ran or shanked you and spaced you but occasionnally I've had great rounds.Particularly when the escape shuttle has arrived and, instead of just elbowing and crowbarring my way on board like most people, I've run back into the bruning mangled wreck of a station to find and evacuate trapped civilians
Is SS13 still lagging like shit?
>>27168502Isn't someone trying to rewrite the game?
Hey, I'm kinda new to this, I've installed BYOND and clicked on the server links on the /tg/station page but nothings happened, have I done something wrong?
>>27181228You need a BYOND account
>>27181191Does the pope shit in the woods?
>>27180974The last dozen or so times I've played on any server, there wasn't a functional legal system, as such, so that kind of thing didn't happen.Can't get sued if there isn't a Lawyer, or indeed, a court that gets used.Hell, I've gotten blasted on my characters and no one even bothered with my drunken antics as long as no one got hurt and nothing got broken.The fact that I wasn't doing my job and making a mess with vomit seemingly didn't matter.If anything I was doing the opposite of my job as Janitor by making messes.And as a Clown, stuff like Drunken Antics are sort of your job, even if it kind of conflicts with other people. Which is the beauty of the game, I guess. Everyone has so many resources they want to do stuff, or get in each others way somehow. Fun happens.Although I have gotten punched in the nose for sitting on a bar stool as a mime, and conspicuously drinking my bottle of nothing.
>>27181255That probably hasn't happened for hundreds of years.
>>27181172I'd say have a macro for it, or just have it typed in constantly, and if you want to say something else, erase that and type that.
>>27180987Someone actually refluffed Paranoia into SS13: The Tabletop RPG
>>27181544Oh, God.Where can has?

And random events generator tables too, that stuff.The charsheet itself was refluffed a bit, so instead of Combat it was Robustness or something.Lemme dig up my old HD and see if it's on there.
>>27178309>>27178434One time, before the bomb revisions, someone threw a tank transfer valve (read: A BOMB!) into the brig where Cuban Pete and I were, and started running.Pete picked up the bomb, and threw it instantly, and ran.It hit the would be bomber a moment before blowing the brig entrance into a crater and the traitor into tiny bloody pieces.Pete and I survived.It was glorious.

Nice to see an ss13 thread from time to time.I've got an RP server with some of the old guard /tg/station players, if people are interested - byond://mycraft.se:1337Rules - http://mycraft.se/wiki/index.php/RulesIt's not nearly as chaotic as /tg/station and the like, but that would make it a very nice and relaxed way to learn the game. (Rounds will usually go for 2+ hours)

If anyone wants to start a new server, or host a small temp server for friends, I made this mod of /tg/ that has less jobs and a whole new map for it. I call it MiniStation. It's updated to the latest /tg/ code so you get all their new features too, like the RTS blobs and the really new speech bubbles.Map: http://filesmelt.com/dl/ministation.pngCode: https://github.com/Giacomand/MiniStation

Haven't played in a while though, so I might not be at my full lovable potential.
>>27188547Quick question.If you used Inkscape, what size page did you use?I have the text done, it just formats it strangely whenever I save it.
>>27178309>>27178434I remember teaching Cuban Pete how to make bombs - I was Aranus your friendly neighborhood scientist one round when Cuban Pete, as a Clown, dismantled his way into Toxins and started faffing about. I'd called for Security, but they were busy murdering the Janitor, so I shrugged and asked Pete if he wanted a lesson on bomb-making.Thirty minutes or so later we were done, I gave Pete the weakest of the completed bombs, and he ran off merrily on his way while I hooked the other two bombs up to remote detonators set to a specific frequency I'd pre-tuned my PDA to and stuffed them in my backpack, just in case. Shortly after the Head of Security spotted Pete and tried to kill him because Clown, and Pete suicide bombed him.The Captain promptly ordered Security to arrest and space me, and in self-defense I triggered my two bombs when the Security team closed in. Blew up roughly a quarter of the station.And that's how I got banned on /tg/station. Apparently Pete continued bombing things in memory of me, though.
>>27188804Nevermind this, when I view it in .PDF, it steals all my spaces, and replaces them with rectangles that do nothing but overlap with letters and make it even harder to read.
>>27188773Have to leave soon, sadly. I'll speed the story up, giving the hilights.>Take out doctor and geneticists brains, put them in my bodies.>Janitor calls HoS down to a body he murdered, throws him out airlock, I detonate him.>People understand that it's a rev round, oh boy.>Start flashing people left and right, just telling them to hold their bombs.>PAI starts blowing up people left and right, I head to toxins.
Alright, I'd never heard of SS13 before this thread, but it looked FUN.So, I spent several hours reading up on facts in the wiki, making sure I'd have a passing semblance at competence in the game (not that I actually did when I got in there). Of course, I start as an Assistant because that's what everybody says to start out as. But Jesus fucking Christ, I had a horrifying experience.Everything starts well. I'm "new to space," so the Engineer takes me under his wing and I start learning how to fix shit. It's pretty fun, and we're just hanging about and doing our jobs when the Miners come back from the asteroid and start heading for the Medbay (they passed right by me). Next thing I know, there's a massive clusterfuck going on. Thirty minutes in.Fuckin' xenos, man.Facehuggers had gotten the Miners, although what strange influence had brought them to think they should come back on the station is beyond me.So the Medics are a bunch of blundering chucklefucks tripping over fucking banana peels (so this is why everybody kills the clowns), and the larvae escape into the ducts. A few minutes later, we've a full scale invasion on our hands. I'm still shadowing the Engineer because I know fuck-all about combat in this game and quite honestly it took me ages to figure out how to hit things with a toolbox. Engineer and I are running like fuck through the space station, I don't know where we were going until we hit the cargo bay, where there were some spacesuits (I think?) that had just been requisitioned. He told me to put it on, but at that particular moment some adult xenos decided the cargo bay would be a fun place to hang out so I decided to GTFO and left the Engineer with a couple of those Cargo Personnel folks. Probably not the best idea.(cont)
>>27189532So now I'm running alone through the space station and lights are going out and I try to swing by the R&D sector--I read that bombs and chemicals were there, which might help. Nope. Entire thing is fuckin' GONE. As in, one of the Scientists kamikaze'd. It was sealed off and an atmos guy was running around in circles. So I continue my mad dash through this unspeakable hell and almost get hugged or robusted by xenos several times. I managed to pick up a shotgun from the corpse of the Bartender, who was next to the kitchen gibber (door was left open). Swiped that, but not once did I stop to fire, no. I ran. And ran in circuits and I knew it was not going to be very long for me.Apparently the Escape Shuttle had been called, because I almost ran past that. The long-lost Engineer was in there, ready to weld the doors shut but he ushered me in first. It was just him and me and I was right next to him as he welded the doors shut. We were gonna live. So apparently, the xenos leave the pink web stuff around. I didn't know that until afterwards. It was also all over the inside of the escape shuttle, as well as a few corpses strewn about. It's pretty obvious what happens next. The two of us are staring in creeping horror at the web he have welded ourselves in with. And, then, facehugger. I'd like to say it got the engie and that I was the sole survivor, but that was not the case. After the deed, it was him and me. I calmly gave him the shotgun and a quick nod, and looked death straight down the barrel.Fuck I love this game.
>>27189541Cool story, bro.
>>27189390Can't fix the problem, can't find help, can't get help, hoping someone who knows what they're doing can fix it, just putting it out there.
>>27189390I've never encountered that problem... Sorry, but I can't help with that, bro.
>>27190015Wait, show me the dialog box that comes up when you save as PDF from Inkscape. Maybe the settings are off...
>>27190108Can't, when I try to bring it up, it ends up looking like >picrelated.
>>27190427But when you save as PDF from Inkscape, you should get a pop-up that asks some stuff, pic related.
>>27190505Mine was like that, but rasterize wasn't checked, and it was restricted to 1.5 PDF.
>>27190587Try exporting with the settings like they are in the pic? That's how I save...
>>27190618I don't see how that'd help at all, but... eh?
>>27190627Didn't work, but thanks for trying.
>>27191118Aye... Hmmm, you could try opening the PDF in Inkscape and see if the problem becomes visible?Or open the other PDF and try exporting it again, seeing if it changes with your exportation?I have to get to bed now, but good luck, anon!
>>27191176I got it!I just had to save it as a page, instead of a drawing.Joyous Day.
Just had a fun short round>liberty station 88>running QM for the first time in a looooooong time. >just toting cargo and bins full of corgis. >suddenly my tech runs up proffers me a pill.>sure why not.jpg. >proceed to have massive hallucinations and believe to be chased around by another player. Along with zombies aliens and I'm pretty sure a ghost. >see the universe explode into fire and vacuum out of nowhere>all while trying to not get rustled. >make it to shuttle, guy's there. >hits me.>I AM THE ROBUST>proceed to beat the man to death with the crowbar I forgot I had while medical techs look on in pure shock. >cargo tech is there and stares at me.>"what did you give me?">I honestly don't know. my face that game.
>>27189532>Facehuggers had gotten the Miners, although what strange influence had brought them to think they should come back on the station is beyond me.Presumably they were trying not to metagame and headed for medbay with the assumption they could be checked up there. Or they just wanted to have a fun xeno round.
Shit, I haven't played in AGES.Fuck man I'm not sure if I can even remember my account name. I've probably forgotten everything.I always liked to play the janitor though. It's a menial job, but I did it with dedication.Barman's pretty cool too. Man, think I might redownload it and shit. What's a good server?
>>27193352Try Baystation, it's pretty decent. Avoid the Goonstations.
>>27178434Cuban Pete was a hero. He was a fantastic artist, making masterpieces of destruction everywhere like it was nothing, composing an orchestra of chaos, death, and explosions. He knew no right nor wrong, only awesomeness. A magnificent bastard, an unstoppable agenda and the skills to carry it out. He was the spirit of the station, the beauty inside us all. Deep within, we all miss him, even if it's just a little bit. He was a true patriot.
>>27193406Bay has gotten MUCH worse over the years. I know exactly three people who are actually part of the Bay 12 community who frequent the server, and there's an unholy amount of furfags and special snowflakes.
>>27189541This is probably the best first round you could've gotten. Mine, about two years ago or something, also had xenomorphs wandering around. All the lights were off, and then I was basically wandering around in the dark until I got picked off.
>>27193406http://pastie.org/8209637Bay. Is. AWFUL.
>>27193352I had to download it on my Win7 computer. I can't seem to get it to work with my Win8 laptop at all.Just tried the latest version and still the same problem.
Now in Image Form.
>>27193528He...He was the one true king of the Rhumba beat.
>>27193689That is beautiful.
>>27193528>>27193651>>27193693Rest in peace, you magnificent son of a bitch.
>>27193689Dammit, gets me every time.
>>27187868Could Centration be classified as a remake too?http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VztyvcIYGkI they've got SOME progress done
>>27193644That picture looks for all the world like Harcourt Fenton Mudd.And I'm pleasantly surprised to find that I already have a picture of Stella. Amazing.

Was anyone there for the round where I sent the Central Command PDA messages?It was on /tg/2 a couple nights ago.
>>27194672The next round in OOC the guy playing the ninja said something about lag making it so he couldn't escape me.But it wasn't space wind on my side that day. It was JUSTICE.
>>27194693I was the captain that round.>"Guys centcomm doesn't use PDAs to communicate with us.">"LOL I ALREADY LOADED THE NUKE ONTO THE SHUTTLE AND ARMED IT LIKE CENTCOMM SAID"
>>27194726You were a fine captain.I just sent the messages because I was bored and wanted to be the GOD-AI WHO SEES ALL.
So what's the current /tg/ server? Been a while since I played.
>>27194751You nuked centcomm and killed the entire crew.You glorious bastard.
>>27194521>>27194642Pete would be proud, son.
>>27194770Never get me bored as AI or fun starts to happen.I really had faith that miner and robo-bros would stop the nuke in a show of heroism and save us all.
>>27194770Wait someone nuked centcommStorytime naoh
>>27194854Whose side do you want to hear it from?We seem to have the Mastermind AI here and the Good Captain who saw it all go down.
>>27168502i personally stopped playing because it got to the point that if i didnt play perfet-little-pet-bitch and do everything "right" (which meant NO FUN unless you were the traitor, anyone not the traitor had to play pure-lawful-fucking-good), anyways, anyone who had "fun" was banned, was total bullshit.this was about 6 months ago, admins still shitty McDoGoods with huge sticks up their asses and a vendetta against the occasional well-planned mass-murder?
>>27194897Man, I never got all the complaints about /tg/station admins. They never bothered me, even when I legit fucked up and killed tons of people or released semi-harmful virus types into the station.>>27194908All right, allow the AI here to type it up.
>>27194919Okay, so.It was a quiet night on /tg/2, when a little AI core named DINGUS booted up for a shift.>Round starts normally, the lone engineer being actually competent for a change and setting up the solars quickly>Chaplain comes into one of my AI rooms to make runes and candles>Everything's running smoothly until->SOME ASSISTANT: "HELP">BOMB HAS TAKEN MOST OF MAINT>MASSIVE DAMAGE IN MOST FUN ROOMS>Detective gets on the case instantly, gets an EVA suit with my help, is unable to find any evidence of who bombed, assistant is gibs>shrug and move on, fence off danger zones>do my job as a door opener, boredom starts to set in>Lone engineer is promoted to captain by HoPmore to come

>>27168502>1. No. >2. All of them are I believe.>3. Convoluted and laggy, very fun once you get the hand of it though.>4. There is no absolutely "correct" way to play. It all comes down to individual server rules and how many people are willing to hound you for not doing what they want. >5. Choose assistant as your role, ask around to help people.

>>27193618Ooh, did anyone save the story about the furfaggotry from yesterday?
>>27169058C-cuban Pete? Is that you? THE Cuban Pete? The man, the legend? Have you returned to deliver us all an explosive masterpiece?
>>27196094I think that it's shitty that half of the community is trying to hound other players for simply playing the game. For No Raisan(the forum dedicated to bans and ban requests) for example is constantly flooded with minor complaints in an attempt to crucify certain players.
>>27196134It's even worse on goon. I got a month long ban for cuffing an engineer running around with a goddamn tazer and stungloves.
>>27196134If you act with reasonable suspicion, they the other guy will get banned.One guy got a few days off after adminhelping when he was killed after throwing tiles at folks.

>>27170326My first time involved getting killed too. I was chased through the lightless hallways of the Space Station by some asshole with a Toolbox.He beat me into unconsciousness, welded me into a locker and jettisoned it off into space.

I played this game maaaaany moons ago, but I was awful at it, I seem to remember spawning as an engineer and welding a locker shut with either a robot or security guard inside, and then I found a researchers dead body and swapped ID's with him before walking into a hallway full of this green mossy stuff...then the ship exploded.
>>27176027>found one of the regular xeno players on F-listWell?Did you fuck her acidic pussy raw?
>>27198311>did you fuck her acidic pussy raw
One of my friends remembered being captured and had snuff ERP forced on her because Amy Lessen found out my friend was a changeling, and forced her to eat Amy sexually and probosisally.
>>27198311Something was raw afterwards...
>>27198460I love this
In my years of spacemans, there are two things I have never done. I have done everything else, but not these.These two terrible things are setting up Singulos and making bombs.I can wire a solar in two minutes flat, have basic viro done by five, and get some dank grown by ten, but I can't do those two stupid things.
>>27200428Aw man, I can teach you about bombs. Also, I apologize for leaving on short notice, and will write up the rest of the story soom, as the thread isn't dead yet.

Probably just going to dick around on NSS Exodus.
