An UnOfficial-UO plays Ministation SS13 night!

Recommended Posts

Second Session: 26 December 2017 @ 2000z

Amendment to my previous statment, the next session for SS 13 will be 26 DEC 17 @ 2000z, as noted above.

I have managed to start and run a ministation server for SS13, It functions best with 10-20 players, everyone is welcome the server information will be available here tomorrow when I launch the server. If you are interested in playing, just show up. Below is a blurb from the wiki post about the station:

Don't know how to play? It's quick* to learn, eve to master.
*not really, but if you are willing to come, we can definitely help out.

There are 26 job slots (not including Assistant) available on MiniStation; the HoP can add more from his ID computer. There is a more simplified command system, with the Captain being the big boss and the HoP being second in command. The heads will have control over all departments and jobs.

List of jobs:

 

  • Captain - Make sure your station is running.
  • Lieutenant - You're second in command, protect the Captain and be his right-hand man.
  • Cargo Tech x3 - Running cargo bay and mining minerals for the station.
  • Bartender - Keeping the bar, serving drinks and food. Hire the unemployed to grow food for you, or do it yourself.
  • Janitor - Cleans the station, removes litter and empty trash bins to be recycled by the crusher.
  • Station Engineer x4 - Keeping the power running and fixing station damage.
  • Security Officer x4 - Protecting the crewmembers and serving space law.
  • Detective - Using forensic science to help security officers catch criminals.
  • Scientist x4 - Research and development of new technologies and create bombs.
  • Medical Doctor x4 - Healing the crew, performing surgeries and cloning dead crew.
  • Chemist - Creating useful chemicals for the crew to use.
  • Clown - Create laughter and boost the morale of the crew. Honk!
  • Assistant x∞ - Not in charge at all, hands of the devil.

Round 3:

Vpope is traitor as engi, he has an amazing plan emaging doors and setting explosives and plasma all over the station burn the place down, however, it goes south, he blows himself up, I unknowingly save him, he's cloned, stuck in the cloning pod because power is out, he escapes 

to the now present escape shuttle, to find out it's only a floating platform because I, as captian, have purchased the "build your own" escape shuttle IOT save $$$, security gets into a huge fight, the majority of the shuttle gets destroyed, I fall out through an open hole and die. Great round.

I'm on standby tomorrow, so I might not make it, but I'll try to show up.

 

If I am there, I can try and help people out.

 

Been playing this game for years.

HONK!! Due to the smaller station size I hope y'all will suck it up and find a role!

 

no greytide pls


In the spoiler is a guide to playing on a Private server in SS13 that I threw together... in case we needed it.


Helping newbies with BYOND. 

Once you install this ancient piece of malware gaming history, you'll need to select SS13 from the side

bcf9cfdad769b8ff1f5eb6bd58534e95.png

 

 

 

Assuming that Headshots server isn't no the public list (the list of SS13 servers that opened up when we clicked SS13 on the left) we'll need to add a custom IP. To do that, we gotta click the cog in the top-right, choose "Open Location". If you're not a CLOWN then you'll have opened up a little window that looks like this.

 

Push "Edit" and you'll essentially get a list of Bookmarks, put in the URL (Headshot will hopefully post it later), a name ("UO Station"). 

 

Now when you go to select a bookmark, it'll show up in the list. Click that sucker, press OK an the ~MAGIC OF BYOND~ should load up the BYOND client and connect you to the server.

 

Enjoy!

 

 

For those who have no idea what SS13 is, this video by Mandalore isn't a bad introduction, IMO :

Wow, someone else knows of this?!?!?!? SUPPORTS IT?!?!?? This will always be my #1 game, I have over 2000 hours since it changed from an atmosphere simulator to this mafia-esque title of insane depth. I mainly play as either Captain or Security, but with my time invested, I am pretty versatile at all roles. It raised Byond as a platform for weeboo fan tributes (RIP Mitadake High) to a service devoted to THIS - shame it's always restricted to it, sigh, for prejudice! HUGELY recommend to *everyone*, each profession has a deep, unique role for the station and the dynamics between them, including the completely interactive station, is unparalleled.

So we're fixing some ini files and the like should we play again. However I put a little summary based on my (shitty) memory of last night:
 

Round 0 - Kinks get ironed out, people learn how to use chat. Several people say "I am a faggot" due to a malicious hint of the day. Admins learn what the fun commands do.

 

Round 1 - A mouse hunt is called, many mice die. The reward for catching all those mice is magic powers, hence the wizard gibs everyone except the clown who robusts him. HONK!! Plot twist though, the clown was a traitor and promptly gets steamrolled by the Emergency Response Team since I double-clicked and 4 of those bastards show up to deliver space justice. 

 

Round 2 - Spess vines ruin the day, as does the spider infestation. Many die setting fire to themselves trying to remove all the space weeds. Santa shows up though, delivering a cook book and flamethrowers to the captain, Merry Christmas! A cyborg will later puts the captain in cuffs at one point for assaulting prisoners, so that's a thing. Janitors did a top-tier job staring at all the blood. Changeling is set on fire as the weed fire spreads throughout the station, many newcomers are taught how to deal with being on fire (SPAM THAT RESIST BUTTON!). Lessons are learned.

 

Round 3 - A nice, quiet, standard traitor round. The engineer blows up most of the station with a plasma fire, however, he kills himself in the process. The doctor revives him! The engineer is escorted to the (half-built) shuttle by the emergency response team. The ERT and Engineer fight on the shuttle, due to one of the objectives being that they must survive alone. A massive explosion blows a hole in the middle of the shuttle, which the team are inevitably sucked in. Traitor victory!

 

Hopefully we'll play again soon, with a larger pop. (and on Paracode if I can EVER GET THE DAMN THING TO PLAY NICE). Otherwise, hopefully some smaller-key rounds on Ministation wouldn't be too amiss. I did note a few things:

  • Some automatically generated antag goals were unachieveable and had to be either admin edited or have the requisite items spawned in (i.e. stealing the Captain's stamp... there was no stamp).
  • Few issues mid-round with people using TS as IC chat, we were hoping to leave this as OOC only so that players can utilise the in-game chat. I appreciate that whilst people are learning this will happen so I let it go, no biggie.
  • Some of the antag/events are not balanced for Ministation. Meteors will almost certainly destroy the TComms link, spiders are quite numerous compared to the population of the station, etc. 
  • Some veteran SS13 players were searching for roles that were not available on Ministation as they are combined/mixed in with others due to the low pop. We might need to put a notice with links to the job roles/station map to help players get acclimatised. 
  • The server kept setting the round type to Extended so I either had to switch it before the initial game timer started or add custom antags mid-round. This is less than desirable and hopefully we can change the mode to secret and have the server randomly generate a gametype in future.
  • On Ministation, the mice will inevitably chew through the cables and cut off power to an area. So it's best for the engineers to go on a mouse hunt once they've nothing to do.
  • We had a lack of security/medical staff in previous rounds whilst having 2 cargo techs and 2 janitors, will need to look at balancing roles.

Not until we get the numbers to change station, sadly. The station has few cameras so it makes playing the AI kinda shit. They spawn in the minisat undefended so it's pretty lame to be AI on Ministation. We could play OmegaStation next time, which is basically Ministation 2.0, if HeadShot wants to. Again, this would require more numbers.

Second Session: 26 December 2017 @ 2000z

 

Thank you to everyone who showed up for the first session, overall it was a very enjoyable experience, and I have learned a lot about running an SS13 server.

 

For the next session, I'd love to take suggestions on improvements or things to include.
