Space station 13 General thread

You guys ever play space station 13?
It's seeing another resurgence recently due to a bunch of youtubers doing video on it.
I recently got back into it after a 5 year hiatus.
Man has it gotten wild and deep.

It's a 2d top down sort of space station simulator that plays like trouble in terrorist town meets dwarf fortress with slightly better graphics and more clowns.

I've been playing bay12 and fulpstation alot. I like the away missions on bay 12. I ussualy play early in the morning so I can practice jobs and not ruin peoples day.

I tried playing it and it was FAR too obtuse for me
The fact that there is so much/so many emergent storylines in the game was amazing to me after watching it for 45 minutes and seeing a guy walk tile-by-tile and....die or something, I can't really remember

The interface looks obtuse but once mastered the game isn't all that hard.
It's mostly a few simple commands/ clicks to do most things and I ussualy have the wiki open on my phone while I play.

I'd recomend hoping on a low pop server and practice being janitor or something.

attempted it with a buddy using an empty server to fuck around and learn to operate. was learning controls and interaction mechanics right up until the constant variable input lag on every single thing and stuttering and general fuckness of everything made my brain snap and i immediately removed the game data and every individual bit of the byond application from my machine. people tell me it's getting ported to a usable client soon but they've also been saying that for a while now so.

one of the best games ever. there is a colonial marines server with regular daily populations of 150+ where you can play as a soldier or xenomorph, they got dropships, tanks, all kinds of weapons, grenades, a full chain of command, squad leaders, its so god damn fucking awesome

It's fun but it's shitty to be working on something and have something happen elsewhere that ends the round. It feels like you're either playing the system and doing your job or powergaming with very little inbetween. Half the classes need their wiki pages open all the time because everything is so obtuse and different servers have different code, so something that works on one server may be totally different on another.

There's potential for fun, sure, but in my experience it tends to be older players just gaming new ones all the time, especially on certain servers which I won't mention.

well there we go, it happened again
I had fun watching other people play....watched a clown walk to security station where it exploded, watched a demon fuck up everyone, watched a clown get his leg cut off and beaten to death by security officers....pretty cool shit.

So I tried playing on a low-pop server. Spent minutes trying to get out of the chair, wandered around the dark station, fell into a swimming pool, wandered around the dark station, found the janitor's area, looked at the vending machine, got it to give me a uniform, held it in my hand, tried putting it on or dropping it, couldn't figure it out.....clicked the "wiki" tab and asked for the controls to see the most confusing control scheme I'd ever seen. Boy, that was a great use of 25 minutes.

Generally if you want to figure things out, don't do stuff that will most likely kill/maim you or other players. Experiment on a candy bar or ask xenobiology/cloning for a monkey/corpse.

SS13 is a roleplaying game and if you don't want to do that then you're going to have a bad time.

Bump to raise intrest.

Been getting good at being a shuttle pilot and an explorer.
They got a fully fledged exploration system on bay12 and new mods that are less enthusiastic.
The exploration system is massive, it's almost a shame rounds dont go over 3 hours becase you scould spend a day exploring 2d space in the shuttle.

Last bump before I let this thread die.

There is a persistent version of this game launching on the 23rd.
Google Persistence ss13 to find more info on servers and such.

But it's basically a never ending round off 13 where all things are player made and maintained. The economy is player driven.
There are politics, trade, crafting, rp, light exploration (mining sites only for now).
You detrmine you're own objectives.

Most people seem to work in ss13 guilds which are usually in the form of a corporation.

I'm really hyped about this server.

There is a reason rounds end and a reason for antags. Game gets boring if nothing exciting happens and I've only rarely seen a crew competent enough to withstand different counter antag ops and repairs through the random events in a single round. However actually using the money in the garage he would be nice. For some reason ss13 is some kind of anarcho communism with sec, cargo, and science competing for the bourgeois class while the czar(captain) screams uselessly.
James Randi - Wed, 12 Jun 2019 11:49:03 EST +vLWW/DB No.738739 Reply
Because the economy us just made up numbers at the moment with no real constancy, and round ends make any profit meaningless outside of RP.
I always tip big in the bar for RP reasons and booze.

The server was already running for a while but they closed it to re do the code and "start a new chapeter" they have sort of rounds that last months. called chapters.
I think they just finished the 3rd chapter called alliances or something, idk.

I'll be joining on the 23rd, see you space nerds.

On bay12 you can play a mouse after 2 minutes of being a ghost.
I spent 3 days playing only a mouse and eating cheese the chef leaves out.

Reminds me of the time I got bwoink'd for bringing Ayy Lmao's onto the station. TLDR R&D were being cunts and not giving holy Cargonia it's rightful due, so I got a facefull of alien wing wong, went back, popped and the shitshow began.

Some admins and mods are just utter nonces. And as >>739168 points out there are some servers where there are really strange, and sometimes valid(but seldom is this the case) limitations on what you can do as Antagonist.

Shit like freeing Dark Lord Singuloth gets rather tiresome after a while. When I briefly admined my own SS13 build, the only limit I imposed on antags was to make their mayhem creative and at the bare minimum funny.

Kind of wish I still had the screencap of the madman who pumped 5000 degree plasma into the Life Support distribution loop and turned the entire station into a nuclear inferno almost instantaneously. It wasn't on my server, but goddamn it would've been effective.

Shit's fucked.

I am planning on starting it back up again when i move back state side and have more of a comfortable life.
Im gonna run bay12 code with some of my own mods. I want to make animals (dogs, cats, mice etc) a tad more playable by adding hunger and an expanded way of interacting with the world.

Maybe some custom maps and so on, it all depends on how many people I can corral around my server.

Jesus Christ, some of the Ahelps that I've gotten and seen are just beyond description. Some of them were saltier than the Dead Sea. Others implied I was a homosexual and of the Hebrew faith. I deeply regret not screencapping them as they were just hysterical.

I had to google bay12. That's the first code build I've come across that's set on a starship. Looks like a rather intricate setup with a good bit of complexity.

98.69% of SS13 admins are scum of the earth. If you were in the right, just give them a simple explanation of why you did what you did. They have all the logs and can easily figure out if you're telling the truth. That's their job. You are here to play a game, not waste your time defending yourself to somebody who is trying to find any excuse to ban you. If they start to interrogate you, just tell them to go fuck themselves and avoid further contact with them, as your fate is already sealed and interacting with them will almost certainly cause you to have a bad day and make them feel special at your expense. Learn to ban evade, or accept your ban and play on a more casual server. Never, under any circumstance EVER sign up on their forums to appeal to a ban. These people are narcissistic vampires and will never admit to making a mistake. If you interact with them you are only feeding their superiority complex.

Yes, it's truly that bad. Everything good must come to an end, and there are always new victims. If you have are anything but a mindless automaton you WILL get banned eventually, so just enjoy your time while you can, and remember you're not alone.

Your other posts seem to not paint other admins in a good light, yet you immediately spew the toxic bullshit at me. So maybe you're just in denial. Or at best slightly more fun than the rest, as long as you get to seem like the "cool admin".

He's right it isn't. Actually I figured it out. The reason why we have so many the future seeming retards is actually because the future killed the German imageboard. Said board was right wing and got filled with poltards from 4 and stormfront who killed the site a year or two ago. This created a bunch of refugees. They also were somehow linked to ylilauta, which is some borderline retarded Finnish chan I think also full of lots of poltards so the
Actually probably came from the Finnish one and got popularized in the German one. That board is also where all the horrible future faggot wojak shitposting came from that then spread to 8 and 4 poltards. I think we have a bunch of people from there to this day. Apparently they made some shitty site called kohlchan which is some horrible cross between stormfront retards, the future retards, and the pedophiles of 12chan.

So technically yes he is right but really what's the difference? It's the same as wojak. It might be different sites adopted it but all of them are basically poltards from the same collective cesspool.

yall mother fuckers need to play on goon servers. They're a pretty good medium between banning people who are shitheads while still not taking things to seriously. I think one of the goon rules is you can do pretty much anything you want as long as it's funny and doesn't completely fuck the round up.

I didn't even know this game had a backstory, I thought it was just a trolling simulator.

Tried persistant ss13 last night.
It's both really fun and a garbage fire.
Mainly a garbage fire tho.
I think its cause every one is left to their own devices.

I really wanna make my own server again.
I was thinking what about some thing between the current round based ss13 and persistant?
Like goals that take a few months to finish.
>Warp into sector/round start
>Blue space crystal breaks
>Time to find a new one
>Takes 3 real month and player co operation
>Once either players are mostly all dead or if they complete their goals the round ends.

I feel like 3 hours tops rounds kill alot of rp that starts to blossom around the 3 hour mark, I was hoping to inspire a bit of a dungeons and dragons vibe, give you guys a "Space quest" to do and i sort of guide the whole thing as space DM.

bumping this thread from the depths.

Did you know any player controlled mob can be inducted into a cult?

Had a round as a mouse cult member.
Was super OP because no one suspected a mouse to have spells and shit.
But sort of a glass cannon since mice have like 1 hp.

That's what I remember when I played it a bit years back. Great for RP, but the interface is a dealbreaker for me and I play Dwarf Fortress.

It only takes about a month to learn all the shortcuts and become robust.

Yeah, there's a keyboard shortcut mode toggle, think it's Tab on many versions. Could make and print out a quick keyboard layout cheat sheet if you want. Not too bad. For me it's the unresponsiveness that makes it the most difficult. Did my action actually go through?

I don't have a month to learn shit anymore. Fucking work and life mate. DF was difficult to begin with, and at least there you don't have to deal with the lag.

I'm not shitting on SS, it's fucking grade A. It has its problems though, which is probably why it works.

I hope you find someone better than the pimps and neckbeards shitting up most servers. Godspeed. Appreciate the offer, mate.

It's disappointing, most people who play this either are retards who just like the burn shit and cause cahos or the aforementioned suprsrsbzns squad of mil sim role play.

I need some 420chan stoners in the mix.

I usually do hard RP of a very weird character, such as an engineer whose wife cheated on him and then killed herself, so he turned to alcoholism, and spends the round trying to work through his shit in various ways. That character tried to turn a bathroom into a suicide chamber by rerouting the atmos and walling the area off.

Bathrooms are a good place for weird shit to go down. Someone always uses them eventually and usually they're up to no good.

I have Windows VMs available if anyone wants to take a stab at some 420chan community SS13 efforts.

I only use the bathrooms for bad things

The one near arrivals is perfect for grabbing a locker and switching disguises

I also give people swirlies, wash blood off myself, etc...

It's a better place to take hostages than maintenance.

Yeah, that's why they're fun to hang out in. Nobody goes there unless they're up to no good.

Would be fun! Not sure how many we could get online but... would be fun. Have modded BYOND a bit before.

I would love to resurect my old server but I don't know if i have the time and will to run my own server and code fork.
It seems mostly just me here in this thread talking to my self.
James Randi - Thu, 14 Nov 2019 20:42:05 EST F8O7I6D1 No.745840 Reply
I'd need atleast 3 other dedicated people just to run a basic server with no code /map difference. Because of time, forum, sorting player drama, admining etc.
