Teleporter 2: Electric Boogaloo discussion thread

Previous teleporters: ID-locked door, no further precautions. Current teleporters: ID-locked door, and turrets (default: stun, check ID, check warrants and records) that shoot you if you're on arrest, don't have teleporter access, or aren't a humanoid or synthetic lifeform. Yes, this means they shoo...

Re: [Discussion] What do you want? Mark 2, Mechoid Boogaloo.

More involvement with the community in upcoming projects, especially major ones (e.g. skill system). Rather than making it behind closed doors and then presenting it to the playerbase, actively involve the community in the development process, looking for what kind of things people would like and di...

Re: [Discussion] Gateways

I do agree that "why don't we just leave?" is an argument people could make IC, but it's also an argument for just heading down to Sif and going SSD in the dorms there as well. OOCly, people will leave the round if they want to leave the round, through cryo/SSD. This just removes a legitimate way of...

Re: Additional Access

Again, this is specifically talking about just a blanket increase in access for any playercount (i.e. enabling the config and changing it to like, 999 players), because turning it off after a certain threshold is lame. People won't be trapped anywhere, and no IDs will be changed midround. Having sev...

Additional Access

Fun fact: somewhere in the code, there exists a config setting to give jobs additional access (depending on the population, but here we'll just talk about giving jobs more access in general). Things like giving Scientists access to Robotics (and Roboticists access to Science), MDs access to Chemistr...

Re: Phase Weaponry - Energy --> Beam

Another idea I've been toying with is phase slugs for shotguns- keeping regular phase weaponry as-is, but having phase slugs fire beams, and be rechargeable at a recharger. Same system could be used for pulse, laser, taser slugs, etc.

Re: Phase Weaponry - Energy --> Beam

Can't you do that with lasers anyway? The really challenging PoIs - BSD, drone foundry, etc - all use enemies that either have ranged attacks, fire lasers, or both, so the fulltile-window trick only works against (specifically non-ranged/tunnel) spiders.

Re: Modular Laptops: a tale of tables, elbows and stratas

Honestly, I'm fine with being able to use laptops on any flat surface (including the ground)- it's possible as far as realism goes (if a little inconvenient), and it's not like having a table requirement would be a balance concern given that tables are everywhere anyway. It's purely a QOL-vs-realism...

Phase Weaponry - Energy --> Beam

PR here.

Previously: phase weaponry fired energy projectiles, similar to that of the stun revolver, which would impact against windows.
Now: phase weaponry fires beam projectiles, similar to that of the taser, which passes through windows and leaves a visible trail.

Thoughts?
