  1. Past hour
  2. So, I’m going to stick my neck out and ask the obvious here. I hope I don’t get banned for it. But, I think someone needs to ask this question. ERP being a zero tolerance perma ban is something that has had me scratching my head sense the rules came in. I have worked very hard to be very careful not to say anything that could possibly get me banned. And, to be entirely honest, this is a lot of work to be this self-censoring. It's just plain not natural. The reason is that, to be entirely honest, this game absolutely screams ERP. There are so many mechanics that feel like the game itself was designed to have this as a feature. The very fact that we can strip or be stripped naked is a huge one. This goes even more so because men are anatomically correct when naked. There is even a mouth cover to mussel us that looks like a ball-gag. We now have pins where we can show everyone what our sexuality is... so that we can then proceed to not have ERP with them. That makes a lot of sense... There are individual bedrooms with beds that we can scamper off to. There are showers with little rubber duckies in them. So, for instance, let’s combine. Security beats us down with a giant electric stick... then strips us naked, cuffs us, and then places a ball-gag in our mouth. I cannot tell you how difficult it has been to just sit there and not crack a joke. Before the rules came in, I and many other people did constantly make sex jokes during this. I can run around dressed up in animal costumes. Clearly not a reference to furries at all… Or I can dress of like a Geisha… To take the cake, I can right click on book shelves in the library and examine them and I get told that they're “Mostly filled with erotica.” So, let me get this straight, the game itself can make sex jokes but the players can't? How is that fair or logical at all? That's just all the stuff in the game now, as is. If you bumped the age limit up a couple years and added just a couple more game-play mechanics and toys you could take all that a lot further. That all being said, it feels like even the game as is was created by people who clearly had a certain level of sexual humor and ERP in mind for this game. Yet, the people in charge of moderating the game feel like some sort of puritanical board ruling over it (no offense.) This leaves the players playing the game under a very weird self-censoring oppression. 'Look at all this stuff that is simply crying out for either ERP or at least a sex joke. But, don't you dare comment openly or act naturally in accordance to what you see, that will get you perma banned.' It makes the experience of playing this game feel like an oxymoron. Look at all this sex stuff, but don't you dare engage with it or comment on it. My very first question, then, is why? Why is this game like this? What happened? Is it that the game was not allowed to be listed on Steam (without being hidden away where no one would find it in the Adults Only Section) without this rule? And so this rule was put into place to secure that the game could become visible and popular on Steam? Is it that the server host platform demands no sexual stuff? So, this rule was put in place so that severs could be hosted on an affordable server hosting platform? Is it some sort of local law where the servers are being hosted that would make the operators legally (and thus financially) liable for sexual content? So, this rule was put into place to cover themselves legally? Is it simply that the moderators of the official servers don't like / are not comfortable with sexuality being expressed? Like, is it a personal hang up on their end? Is it that, somehow, to spite the game naturally swinging this way that it was all by accident? That there was simply no sexual humor intended to be present and the players simply took these things (which seem so very obvious to me) out of context in a way that was never intended? Moderators would save themselves a lot of grief if they simply bumped the age requirement of the game up from 16 to 18. The ban appeals section is full of people who made natural jokes or took natural actions that this game basically begs / dares them to take by its very nature; and then they get banned because they innocently violated a rule they didn't even imagine would be a rule. I know that I was shocked when I saw the rule come in and I had to instantly be very careful of what I said and did in the game so that I could keep playing. I have to imagine that a lot of newbies who enter this game are quickly exiting into the ban pile because they made a joke or something and didn't read the rules and realize they could get banned over it. I mean, it certainly would save the moderators and players a lot of grief if they simply bumped the age up two years and then removed the ERP ban from the rules. I think that this is an important question because ERP is clearly something that a lot of players naturally want to do. The game already feels very tailor made for it and it could easily go even further in that direction with very little effort. I have to ask, then, why the restriction? If it is merely to make the game open to a younger player base, then what are the realities of making ERP servers for adults only? Is that something that will officially be made at some point? If not, and if the players make them themselves, would the official launcher even be allowed to list them? It already seems odd to me to bend over backwards to cater to a teen player base. I mean, has anyone taken a census to see how old the average player of this game is? SS14 is a game that largely got its player base from SS13. Most of these people were teens in the 2000's and are adults now. So, like, why this push to cater to a younger audience; who likely isn't really the target demographic for a game like this anyway? (Most of them are playing League of Legends, Fortnight, or Minecract.) Who is this game made for, exactly, anyway? It’s a game where most adult rated stuff is already allowed. I can smoke cigarettes and cigars, drink beer, grow and smoke weed, make and pop pills (literally to get high) roofie people at the bar, literally inject myself and others with drugs from a syringe, and kill people. So, let me get this straight, tobacco, alcohol, light drug use, hard drug use, and murder are all a-okay. But, people having sex is bad? Nobody pay any attention at all to the furry outfits, Geisha girl costumes, sexuality pins, love hotel rooms, shower rooms, amply supplied ball-gags and hand cuffs, suggestive stun batons, or library shelves stocked with erotica. No, sex is bad. I just find this rule to be very befuddling and have to ask why it even exists at all. It seems so silly to me. Understanding why it exists is also important because it can help people understand what our real chances are for official severs that could allow for ERP. Or, if it would even be worth our while to create a sever that allowed for ERP if it wouldn't be allowed to be listed on the official sever list and thus nobody would be able to find it anyway.
  3. Yo wake up babe new copypasta just dropped You can make sex jokes, just don't roleplay having sex. Erotic RolePlay is banned, not Erotic jokes. Of course, banning sex jokes is a case to case basis. Your best bet is to not reference Genitalia or Breasts. Or any holes, for that matter.

  6. Altar is random. Some altars on some stations are the same though they're hidden (Sacrificial altar) Altars are all the same. However for RP purposes they can be different as you can pray to it to request something from an admin that isn't an admin message. If it's a sacrificial altar, maybe they'd ask you for a pig to kill on the altar or something like that or some offering for the others (they're not guaranteed to work all the time as it depends admin to admin, some may even monkey paw you on your request) Chaplain cannot change the altar. Religion is whatever you come up with.
  7. I've tried playing Chaplin a few times and I have noticed that it seems like the alter simply randomly picks which religion it's going to be each shift. This is sometimes awkward if I get matched with a religion I don't really want to role play that I'm a part of. The rest of the shift I am simply bound to it. Does which alter the station gets have some sort of game-play specific mechanical significance? If not, and it's there specifically for role play purposes, is it possible for the Chaplin to be able to simply change the alter? Like how Chameleon Cloths allow me to right click on them and select change and pick what I want each article of clothing to look like; I kept looking for a similar option for the alter and couldn't find one.
  8. yo thanks for this.

    MIDI thread

    Heck, you don't even need a proper physical keyboard. I've been having fun with a virtual one - that is, using my computer's keyboard to simulate an actual keyboard. Got a chromatic key configuration, and it's awesome! (look up the Qwertuoso/Sixtyforgan/Commodordion if you wanna have an idea of what that's like) I'm using vkeybd for that. If you're on Linux, you can probably just try it out. But you'll probably want to change the key configuration (even if you want a piano-like layout, you can do a lot better than vkeybd's default), and it was a bit of a pain to figure it all out. So if anyone wants it, I can post some instructions.
  10. Yesterday
  11. Judging by other threads on this subforum I assume this will only be reviewed in the week after the ban (April 3rd), fair.
  12. yo swept shut the fuck up
  13. I would like you to find SpaceAsshole please and thank you
  14. To reiterate what deltanedas said, datacenter bans only block ranges of IPs utilized by VPN services that have been abused to attempt to evade bans. Turning off your VPN should allow you to connect. If you are still having issues despite disabling your VPN reach out to myself or on discord and we'll see what we can do.
  15. im still banned so i didnt know. i tried it on hippie station though! just got a new keyboard :DDDDDD
  16. you can already change hotkeys in settings and z on box does open it
  17. Not an admin, but your account itself isn't banned, you just have to turn off your VPN.
  18. Is it possible to change to SS13-like hotkeys? I know Z still makes you use object in hand but what about things like a single button to open up a box in hand or hell. Just allowing people to switch hotkeys however the hell they want?
  19. Me immediately (and carefully) trying to correct the mistake Immediate Trying to correct.mp4
  20. SS14 account username: Big_Ounce Ban reason: ""Nigavirus"" Date of ban: 29/03/2023 Length of ban: Permanent Events leading to the ban: In medbay, Sick, Unable to do anything stuck in bed think, 'clown' 'juggalow', 'jigalow', unable to do anything, virus make me jigalow!!, TISM ACTIVATED clown chat time, JIGAVIRUS ON BOURD, Chat goes crazy, Look at chat, :O one of the misclicks of all time, Miraculously i get up and Fly away. Reason the ban should be removed: I understand the reason for banning but permanently thats, something. i feel as a long time player this infraction that could be considered minor should not end my ss14 experience
  21. yeah.... if it's too noticable its just boring for everyone, in my opinon it's fine where it's at. you really gotta make sure noone is pickpocketing you. it's basically impossible to pick pocket people in normal ss13 nowadays.
  22. SS14 account username: FidelCashflo Ban reason: just says "Datacenter" Date of ban: not sure, just seeing it now Length of ban: says "it will only be removed by appeal" Events leading to the ban: honestly not sure, i am using a vpn. maybe thats what the person meant if thats not allowed Reason the ban should be removed: happy to not use one in the future if that's the problem, sry just didnt know. kind of just speculating tho since it happened while i was offline and the ban reason wasnt very detailed
  23. SS14 account username: [Dowafear] Ban reason: [ i thoght she liked it (i will consider this ERP] Date of ban: [21.3] Length of ban: [Perma! (for some reason)] Events leading to the ban: [I just walked like 20 mins naked jokingly unequiped my dress infront of cap , Cap reported me for Erp ,admin men talks to me , I made a joke abot Erp and the Captain , my words has been cut mid converstion , I was just permabaned for walking without clotes and making wrong joke at the wrong time! Reason the ban should be removed: [I am been band like 5 days from now on , I think my innoccent jokes baned for enogh ???(let me play pls =( ]
  24. Discord account: NeatVisor#4225 Date of ban: 8/30/2022, don't know the exact day Events leading to the ban: Before I was permanently banned, I posted a meme about a Gartic Phone session. The meme was about a troll face animation getting progressively more deteriorated and satanic, with the players laughing in the background. The meme was posted after other people typed in "no memes in general", and one other person on the server also posted a meme about something that I don't remember. Before that, I don't know what happened because my memory is quite fuzzy since it's been a while. However, I do think I was roaming around other servers and seeing if they had updated their game. Reason the ban should be removed: When I posted the meme, I thought the people that were typing in "no memes in general" were insulting moderators as a joke. I also don't remember seeing a "meme" channel, or maybe I was just blind, but I thought they posted memes in general. Anyways, when the other person posted a meme, I then thought that it was okay to post a meme in general too since I wanted to be funny and joke around in the conversation. However, what I didn't expect was to be instantly permabanned from the server, without knowing the reason for my ban. Note that I joined the server a while back, without saying anything in the server either. I joined the server so that I could get some useful in-game knowledge on how the game works and it's game mechanics. When I joined in on the conversation, I didn't remember the rules that well, mainly because I don't check on the SS14 server that much and my memory sucks at times. So I didn't remember the rules either in the conversation, however; I will thoroughly check through the rules if I'm unbanned after this since it's an obvious mistake to not think before you type. I do think that I've repented enough for my ban from the server, and I also don't quite know the main reason for my ban. trolled.mp4
  25. SS14 account username: Eeveelvl100 Ban reason: "Ban upgraded to appeal only after internal review. insulting staff and using slurs in ahelp" Date of ban: I don't remember just was a long time ago Length of ban: Perma Events leading to the ban: (I am dyslexic so sorry if anything is a bit hard to read) I was playing as sec and someone dressed as a clown was killing people and tried to kill me so I shot at him and I got banned from my roll for not trying to arrest him but when I did he hit me with a pipe. I went way over board with my reaction and I am sorry and did learn from it Reason the ban should be removed: I realized that I was wrong in the way I reacted and It doesn't help anything to be that rude and angry and it was my first offense but I promise there won't be another
  26. if you want to impersonate someone you need a voicemask and an ID with their name- preferably their PDA and ID. If someone is acting suspicious, just ask them to show you their face and talk, cant have a voicemask work with it on the ground! If you are being stolen from SO EASILY just ask someone to let you hide in their department, or go into a disposals bin. Hell, put your ID and PDA in your bag so people dont see it and grab it and then run. goober level set to the max.
  27. Last week
  28. You seem to have a firm understanding of why this was an issue. This was principally an appeal ban since you could not be contacted at the time of offense. The arrivals station and area is off-limits to both antagonists and normal players as far as disruptive activity goes as this essentially takes players out of the round before they have an opportunity to do anything. This ban will be lifted.
  29. I do think some sort of audible noise may be nice , however then you may run into the issue of it being too difficult for a syndie to do syndie things if the noise is made too loud or audible to all players(not just the player getting robbed).
