>> QUICK QUESTIONS THREAD <<

Post by Warnipple » 15 Jun 2016, 19:31

I want a thread where new players, such as myself, can ask simple questions and get simple answers instead of having to ask the mods all the time.

Anyway, I'll probably end up asking a mentor but:

If a Facehugger gets on the face of a fellow marine, is it possible for another marine to 'assist' in the removal of the facehugger? It doesn't seem RPish but when a fucking alien is on my fellow marine's face. I feel the sudden urge to yank it off. It can't be good for his/her health.

Feweh Edit: Tadah, official simple questions thread.

You can attempt to remove it yes. You can do this with both hands still occupied.

In response to the above question, you can click and drag their sprite to yours, the same way you remove gear, and just click, I believe, "alien" or "facehugger" in the mask slot. You'll pull it off after a short delay.

Another question:

Is it allowed, RP wise, for a Doctor to ask for a gun? I've had awesome Marines give me one before when the Sulaco is being boarded but there are sometimes other reasons why I might want one.

For example. Sometimes when I perform abortions for marines, I fail and the larva runs around. I have no way of killing it other than running around with my saw. I prefer to have a gun in this case, which would require me to ask someone for theirs.

And if the USS Sulaco is being boarded by Aliens, sometimes I want a gun. It might not help but it makes my character feel safer to have one. Granted he doesn't have training to fire one but then again, its not hard to aim and pull the trigger.

Side note: I think the CMO should have a pistol in his locker or something if he doesn't already. He is an officer after all. I've never played CMO before though.

I highly suggest you read this (aka it's mandatory) http://colonial-marines.com/viewtopic.php?f=57&t=5094

The section on the CMO/Doctors explains it. Basically, you only get a service pistol when the Sulaco is actively being boarded. Even in this situation, try your best to stay out of combat. Attacking aliens instead of helping the injured will likely get you job banned.

Can you put weapons on the Corporate Jet Pod and are there any available in robotics? Or do you have to get them from R&D back on the Sulaco?

Also how do you fight in a mech/pod?

Are there enough resources on the planet to build a exosuits? And are they allowed?

I'm going to guess a solid no because exosuits aren't part of the lore save for ripleys.

To build? Yes, you can build a gygax, save for the circuit boards which must be produced by Research.
There is also a corporate jet pod available in the secure dome, which can mount certain exosuit equipment, such as the RCD.

As for being allowed? Beats me. I'd asked before but never got a consistent answer.

When looking up/down ladders, how do I stop looking? Have been been able to stop it a couple of times by fumbling around with movement keys, but it seems inconsistent

Generally most people opt to move away from the ladder. However in the OOC tab you may use the Cancel Camera View verb as well.

Does the durag block facehuggers?

If not, then why doesn't it block facehuggers? Do you have something against me 360 no scoping an alien in a durag?

No, but who cares about blocking huggers? True skill comes from avoiding huggers.

How do you play ravager?
I seem to either be cursed or playing it wrong.

Robotic organs... You cant sadly only limbs.

Surgical drill does not have any uses i think.

Question. How do grey tiders find ss13? Its seems like a hidden gem that when people would find, they would rp and not troll. It does not seem right.
The FitnessGram™ Pacer Test is a multistage aerobic capacity test that progressively gets more difficult as it continues. The 20 meter pacer test will begin in 30 seconds. Line up at the start. The running speed starts slowly, but gets faster each minute after you hear this signal. [beep] A single lap should be completed each time you hear this sound. [ding] Remember to run in a straight line, and run as long as possible. The second time you fail to complete a lap before the sound, your test is over. The test will begin on the word start. On your mark, get ready, start.

You are correct, from what i saw, there really is no use for surgical drill, and any surgery that you need to fix someone never require it...

If I remember correctly, it's used for implanting various things in people. You can use it to "make room" for a flashlight in someone's chest for example. Never had a reason to try it yet though.

Fuckery is the nature of the Eldar. It is the core of their being. Every Eldar yearns to achieve ultimate dickishness in the art of fuckery. An Eldar may walk a thousand paths in their long lifetime, each one a new lesson in how to engage in fuckery. An Eldar that has not fucked in the affairs of others is incomplete, and broken. An Eldar would gladly sacrifice a dozen of its fellows, and billions of non-Eldar, just to experience the rush of dicking someone over with an act of sublime fuckery.
