Exploding Light Tubes

Post by Crab_Spider » 31 Aug 2017, 09:07

Bug Description: Placing Phoron in a light tube and inserting it in the fixture will make it explode if the lights are turned on, if off, the tube will behave normally until the lights are manually turned on, in which case it explodes. This has been in for quite some time but due to the rare nature of phoron and how there's no reason for others to have it on their person, it's not able to be done on the field.


Steps to reproduce:
1. Grind up phoron
2. Extract it via syringe
3. Inject solution in light tube
4. Place tube in fixture
5. Watch as you get blown up because of this remnant of bay code.
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.

Not every bug has to be a balance issue.

Hey there's this mechanic that could possibly be used by a resourceful engineer and researcher combo to reck some xenos

Let's remove it.

This doesn't seem like a bug and more like a feature.

This is an intentional feature from old SS13.

Why are you injecting phoron into light bulbs anyways?
