I don't think so, cuz the items are related to perks i think. Maybe you can ask an admin to code your character.

You'll most likely have to ask Apop about the donations although in my mind if you don't want the custom sprited clothing or just an item of clothing it should be fine as Rahl could hit your account with the donor tag which I think should be fairly easy, although getting the donor perms on the server for you would probably be a pain, but again you'll have to Pm Apop about this either on discord, the forums or potentially byond to get an actual answer.

In regards of the items relating to perks, the perks are individual. An example would be the OOC colour change option on the server and the extra dev section to look at new features and ideas on the forums.

Can you make smoke that's also explosive?
Does acid smoke work on xenos?
When is it justified to mutiny?
You will never be as bad as the baldie who picked up a tactical shotgun while a hunter was pouncing on top of a CMO for 4 seconds, with his only response being to pace around before being decap'd by said hunter. You are not Brett Kimple, and you never will be. You are not the reason why I regular MP.

Used to, there were called Knightnades back then, since it was Coroneljones who made them and published about it, then every single researcher and their mother would make it and everyone and everything would die, themself included.

Poly acid smoke. Melts objects, VIOLENTLY MURDERIZES people, think of it as a boiler bombard, but worse.

This may be a dumb question- but Is it possible to run a private server of CM? Not that I dont love you guys, but I would like to experiment without having to worry about ruining other peoples game. Completely fine if that is off limits.

You need the codes of CM, and this needs the permission of the host of the server Apophis. If he agrees, sure! Knock yerself out.

We hold the code pretty close to our chests, so you're probably never going to see it unless you were to become a developer of some kind for the server. Sorry homeboy :c
I'm stressing way too hard about what to put here, so I'm just gonna leave it blank.... or....

Highly doubtful because, you would need the server code/files to run the server in the first place and CM is closed source. Secondly, you'd need permission. Sorry bud.

What Noah is saying is, you can improve upon your skills in CM, but you won't get better. There is no such thing as a fair fight, and as such, you will always fail in one way or another. Outliving everyone on the ship requires that you're paying attention to yourself rather than anyone else. You're not going to get better with a few guides, you have to actually put an effort into living as long as possible and use meta tactics to know what will get you killed.

EORG is end of round grief. It's most basic form is hurting other humans after the round ends (hurting aliens is fine), if you do end up attacking a marine at the end of the round, it auto-bans you for three hours. EORG also encompasses stuff like blowing the SM or breaching at round end. Basically, sit still and don't do anything lest it floods the logs/ breaks RP.

I've seen people build them before and they weren't banned, though the ability to may have been removed.
