Okay daily question dudes - Is there a guide to the very complex injury/pain mechanics in this game? I've been scouring over the SS13 guides and reading about the medical jobs, which sort of helps, but I haven't found anything about how the basic mechanics work.

It took me awhile to figure out what was happening to my guy with the pain crits and stuff like that. I would check myself out, do first-aid, but still be gimping around, losing vision, and eventually passing out.

A guide on this would be extremely helpful to new players, as you'll spend most of your time being injured or laying in a roller bed. If there's not one already, I'll work on one if I can find the information I need.

Here are some good pages of information

Pain crit isn't an exact science.

There is a space of time from initial injury to pain crit. Envision that as your adrenaline rush. You have a short period of time to bandage up wounds, salve them, and pump some Tricord in your body. Otherwise pain crit will ensue. If you're a standard marine; bring two first aid pouches. Fill one with Tricord, other with a Tricord and bandage/salve. It'll keep you going for a long time. If you get your hands on an advanced burn kit and trauma kit you're in an even better spot!

Sounds like you either had internal bleeding, or maybe brain damage. In which case Quick clot or peridaxon would do the trick.

How do you fix the bug that pill bottle appears to be empty while actually contains pills?

If it's not full, I could fill a pill and done. But if it's full, I can't seem to find any methods that could help.

Tried search on topic and forums with no related results. Thanks in advance.



Edit: It seems that if you open bottles before putting them into a chem master, pills filled through the machine will not appear until changes.

So I guess you can prevent this bug by
1. not opening bottles at all beforehand,
2. filling the bottle with a random pill in advance, take it out later in order to update bottle's content,
3. collecting the last pill(s) manually,
4. Not putting the bottle into the damn machine at all.

It's some band-aid workarounds, maybe there are better solutions, but still, hope this edit helps.

Is there a way to hide combat logs, aka the red text? never really was a problem untill I started surviving to the last stands, when the textbox becomes utterly unreadable from all the guns firing.

Does Camoflauge count as a nam song even if it was made after the fact. If so, already had it covered.

The unresponsive WeylandMed plus vendors found on planetside, how do you repair them, if at all?

The one that refuses to pop vendor window. :(

Power it up. Make sure the APC is powered.
To repair if it's knocked down, simply click on it.

I did both. But honestly, I am not familiar with wiring, so I think I did something wrong there.

I fixed APC, made sure cable has current flow with multitool, then pull them onto cable knot and wrench them. But they remain unresponsive. :(

Edit: I think I got what's wrong with me. I have to fix the exact APC of the home area of the vendors.
Thanks so much for helping though. :)

so, I have some questions.

can beepskies be made? are they still in the code? I've tried, but I think the helmet specifics kinda messes things up. I'd love to see what exactly a beeskie would do against a xeno, and I think the MPs would love beepskies, and buying the MPs favor as a researcher is always a big perk.

Medical smokes, possible or no?

Bags of holding. From what I know, Apop said they're still in the code. If a researcher magically got uranium, or bought it off the CL via WY and cold hard cash, could it still be constructed?

phoron bombs. why can we buy them if there is almost no time we can use them? Its counter productive and kind of like giving people a Tree of Knowledge and trying not to eat it's fruit.

It sucks that there is no SM anymore. Just throwing that out.

Are the mods okay with accepting code? like, if I recreated the code for the roach spawns from trash in the other servers, would they be up for implementing it, or would not because of the closed source?

why do pistols suck so bad? you can't hit the broad side of a barn with them. They don't do much damage, so you'd think they'd atleast be accurate.

is there a way to manually make incendiary ammo?

what are the best tips and tricks, and best projects, for a researcher right now?

1) No you can't make beepskies

2) Got abused/griefed with, got nerfed/removed

3) Admin spawn only

4) Nope.

There's any plans for the researcher role? Actually, I feel like it can't do half it did before, and feels really slow/useless as round progress. Also, producing and handing out experimental grenades is not really worth.

If you check out the wiki on the researcher page it says that the role is currently an RP focused role as the previous stuff got removed and it is currentry undergoing a rework. So yes there are plans. But they might be a while in the making or quite close to completion, I haven't noticed anything mentioned about it anywhere else so it might not be for a while and low priority or it might be a surprise like the queen update was.

Either way, I wasn't here when researcher had stuff to do but enjoy the RP available and if you are bored you can help out in the swanky new med bay. That being said I am looking forward to seeing what mechanics they end up with!

Unfortunately, the researcher update has been 'in the works' for around a year now. Hoping for the research rework is like hoping for an BC/RDS/BFA/etc. minigun to pop out of your ass.

Well it's come in steps we've seen glimpses into it with the chitin armor and anti acid spray.

Upgrading machines. It has little purpose however as there are few machines that use it
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.
