  1. I've brought up the topic of removing cloning several times within the Para discord, and each time it was a clusterfuck. My (albeit now very irrelevant) opinion still stands; Paradise would do well to remove cloning and strange reagent entirely from the game. Leave defibs, FBPs and borgification as the remaining methods in which someone returns to life.
  2. Now see I could follow the bait and reveal myself to be Spark the unretired but uh no So instead I'll just call you stinky
  3. I am merely a ghost haunting an old dwelling
  4. February 2014 was when I joined Para. Then I tried to leave, but I was locked in the dungeon and if you're reading this help I want ou-
  5. I suggested this in an unofficial capacity at a few points, and each time was generally told that IRCs need to be identifiable at a glance. Personally I'd just have given IRCs the ability to change their identity once upon having a robotic brain inserted to the chassis for the first time. If you want my lore opinion (which I'm totes sure you do :p) keep the posi/ robotic name the same as the original name it was made as regardless of the name of the chassis changing.
  6. While you're at it, integrate this idea with abductors. Rather than implanting odd organic body parts into IPCs, have them experiment with ancient alien tech on them instead.
  7. You should try rigging that 3D model for use in ML64 oot and then force gangel to play it with me, looks like it'd fit there nicely.
  8. We may have to agree to disagree on this point. I'm personally not bought that any one SS13 server must absolutely stick to one art direction, unless it's a server with a specific theme--which Paradise is not. I do not believe the 'artwork direction' should impede features from being added, particularly features the playerbase enjoys. I don't think either of us will convince the other party of their respective side, however. I do not see the problem with cartoon natured aesthetics, which Paradise has had some of over the years, regardless of whether it's been removed now. As well, removing one small thing doesn't cause problems per se, but this does play into an overarching issue. When you port features from other servers, you should consider a few things; namely whether that feature fits within the server you're porting it to, and what the ideology was from the other server. This is an extreme. If I treated HRP servers as gospel, I would have left Paradise years ago, and I most certainly wouldn't be playing on a blatant LRP server now. Lord knows I have my own complaints about many of the other HRP servers around today. An unholy amount of them. Yet, it doesn't hurt to consider the thinking process behind some of their features--particularly when the argument being put forth is that it damages immersion, which is something HRP servers pride themselves on. I may also mention here that TG has also made many, many poor decisions over the years, yet Paradise ports from them quite frequently. I would argue that treating tg as 'gospel' would also do more harm than good. Presently, you're about the only person presenting counter arguments and dissent to a feature that many others appear to have interest in. If you express such, you should be ready and expecting to defend your viewpoints. I don't think it's bad that you're positing your own thoughts, mind, on the contrary. But you can't be surprised when others push back against you.
  9. Realism != good gameplay. The notes aren't overbearing, either. Often times you'll hardly notice them. They add a subtle touch. If we wanted to remove many of the subtle touches akin to this, the game would become rather soulless. Missing the point of my statement and fitting in a snarky reply, but sure, why not. My point was largely that HRP servers think a good deal more about these sorts of things than most other server. If they're willing to put in something like this, it's generally because it's small, subtle, and non instrusive--while also bringing something else to the table. I'm one of the biggest 'muh immersion' players around, and I certainly can't find a problem with the notes. This is a suggestion thread, where people discuss and debate ideas. If someone disagrees with you, they may engage with you on that point--particularly when you appear to hold the more 'controversial' viewpoint within this thread.
  10. You're free to go tell that to the HRP server the feature originally came from :P This feature was something I greatly missed when it vanished. It was subtle, but added a nice touch.
  11. Have an exceptions list that blocks these specific boards, then. Alternatively, have the boards fall out if the borg is flashed or otherwise disabled.
  12. I expect you could make a new lawset, and a new subtype of drone and/ or drone fab that could spawn in with said lawset. As for capability, while bay drones don't have hands, they are still very adept at most construction tasks.
