Cm's History

Post by TopHatPenguin » 19 Jan 2018, 20:36

wiki/History

Some of you may or may not know but there is currently a history page on the wiki that details some of Cm's history, however currently it is very much anything that isn't applicable to the current iteration of Cm jumbled onto somewhere onto this page.

The end goal of the page is to effectively be a museum page of sorts detailing the different 'eras' of CM along with features/sprites relevant to that era so that new players can go "haha the corroder, what a monster" and for old players to take a nostalgia trip.


In short this thread is for:
  • Posting ideas for the pages structure and general layout.
  • If any old Cm information is missing you can post it here so that it will be added.
  • Old screenshots of a certain action(s) that are no longer present in Cm.
  • Lastly if any you old players are willing to help out with information that'd be grand.

I may have missed something so If you've got any questions feel free to ask.

Dec 16, 2014: The oldest image I have. This was the Virology room on "The Nostromo" (Baystation's Boxstation map). Apparently I enjoyed observing as a naked ghost.

August 30, 2016: The day the Xenos killed most humans in the first few minutes of the round and had their own briefing
Image

A few other nostalgic memories that I don't have screenshots for:
- Facehugger AI, and how Xenos would stuff 30 of them into a locker, run into a group of marines while pulling the locker, then open it. Instant Xeno victory!
- The massive long lines and endless fights at the Logistics Officers to get IDs changed into individual squads. I installed electronic flashers in the area so the HoPs could stun everyone
- We used to right-click > Kill on players that were misbehaving until I added the Sleep verbs later on. Apophis would occasionally give them diseases that they'd have to deal with for the rest of the round lol
- Probably not worthy of a universal history page, but I remember making a mistake accusing a player of something and apologized by giving them one of those infrared eye patches so he could see in the dark for the rest of the round.
- The shuttle landing never had a sound or alert of any kind, so players would get squashed by it almost every round

At this time i had killed a deathsquad member, taken all their equipment.
I had also the mar-30 from the crashed ship, nagant revolver, and ppsh.
I personally have not seen deathsquad in a LONG time, and the crashed ship loot on LV has been neutered.

I am terribly sad no one has a picture of the burning Sulaco when I made that phoron napalm grenade that almost crashed the server because melting everything. Including me.

OH and you forgot to talk about research making exosuits and throwing Chloral Hydrate Odysseus with syringe guns.

Somehow, for some reason, i had a DOUBLE ESWORD and used it to kill xenos. :thumbup:

Old big fat sentry sprites and the grey plasteel barricade sprites. People would actually use wood cades that blocked an entire tile & girders aswell.

top pic is the almayer, you can actually probably find out which version it was by the art assets.

Gaze upon me,
for I have wandered deep into the ancient tombs of knowledge to which lie madness and sorrow, cleansing a path for all those who walk behind me...

But seriously, does uh, anyone know the way out?!
