    • All the folks who helped keep me afloat while life was topsy-turvy. <3 <3 <3
  • Have fun!

Thursday, December 10th, 2015

Wire updated
  • New popups! Sorta. This is an introduction of a brand spanking new popup framework we're testing. As the end-user, you wont see much beyond an initial style change, but trust me some magic is happening behind the scenes.
  • Yes this changelog looks a little janky with the new theme, will fix. Also if shit goes real south and your changelog can't be closed or whatever, just issue the "Changelog" verb and it will go away.
  • (New popup framework coded largely by Somepotato)

Monday, December 7th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Destiny only: Security Officers now have access to everywhere but heads' offices and other command locations (bridge/EVA/AI/etc). HoS now have all access plus their armory access. Please don't abuse this so I don't have to remove it again.

Tuesday, December 1st, 2015

Haine updated
  • Merry Spacemas!
  • To help make new ornaments for the tree, see this thread: [1]

November 2015

Monday, November 30th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Mercury no longer a stealth poison.

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Tweaked how conveyor belts work. They should now be significantly faster. As such the cargo routing system can actually be used to deliver things in a timely manner!

Friday, November 27th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Fixed a long-standing issue with clown car reliability.
  • This update brought to you by our sponsors, the Tinfoil Hat Society.
Haine updated
  • Mentorhelp is now hot pink. This is partially (mostly) because mentorhelps were getting lost in admin PM messages since they were all the same blue color.
  • F3 is now a hotkey for mentorhelp.

Wednesday, November 25th, 2015

Haine updated
  • New wizard outfit available, made by Gannets!
  • You can now cut eyeholes into cardboard boxes. You can also now put fake moustaches on them.
  • Fixed syndicate saws so, when you see one in someone's hand, it's red, not green.

Friday, November 20th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • A brand new interface for the pathology computer. It's cool as heck.
  • It's also kind of experimental, fitting for a sciencey department.
Haine updated
  • New/"New" HUD styles: Classic, the blue and green style from early goonstation days, and Mithril, a HUD style by quiltyquilty.
  • Fixed: "You're too far away from the left hand to deal a card!"

Monday, November 16th, 2015

Haine updated
  • New HUD sprites, courtesy of Bartorex! Additional thanks to Somepotato for setting up a dmi with the sprites, and letting me have said dmi, so I could be lazy.
  • You can still use the old HUD! You'll find a new option in your preferences to use the old style, or you can switch at any time with the Change HUD Style command.

Monday, November 9th, 2015

Wire updated
  • The highlight string functionality in the chat window will now only highlight matched words rather than the whole line.

Monday, November 2nd, 2015

Haine updated
  • Shocking Grasp is now Shocking Touch. It no longer instantly vaporizes people, and instead instantly puts them in crit, while stunning people nearby. Yes, I do hate fun, why do you ask?

October 2015

Monday, October 26th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Enabled tooltips on all the health HUD information (for Humans). They have the same description text as when they're clicked. I am unreasonably pleased with how this turned out.

Thursday, October 22th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Eye surgery! It's janky and awful. Probably also buggy. Let me know on the forums!
  • It's spoon-scalpel-spoon, and you need to use both tools with the hand on the same side as the eye you want to do surgery on. Right hand for right eye, left for left, like that. It was either this, or pop-up prompts.
  • Eventually surgery in general will be re-written and this will all be less stupid. For now, though, please enjoy this terrible mess.

Wednesday, October 21th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Pills no longer need something to be in a beaker/whatever already to be dissolved. Realistic? No. More fun? Yes.

Saturday, October 17th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Buffed the Staff of Cthulhu a little to hopefully make it a more viable choice, especially when considering that you have to sacrifice a spell slot for the thing.
  • Use the associated ability and it'll magically show up in your hand (or on the floor if you have both hands full), and the staff is also a slightly better melee weapon than before.

Thursday, October 8th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Tooltip support for pod UI buttons

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Added some swanky tooltips to the game. They appear for most ability buttons in the top left of your screen.
  • A notable omission are pod buttons. They're a bit more difficult.
  • This is using some hitherto unknown black magic to pull off and could be either very laggy or just plain broken so uh, we'll see how this goes.

Monday, October 5th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Guess what. NI3 got ran into the ground. You horrible jerks.
  • Now it's gone until I can work out what to do with it.

September 2015

Wednesday, September 30th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Given that very little nuke round development took place since May, it seemed appropriate to finally make some simple but significant adjustments based on user feedback.
  • Added seven new target areas. Some are more in the crew's favour than others, but they're all temporary and will have to be rebalanced for Cogmap 2 anyway.
  • Timer now defaults to 8 min, and unscrewing the nuke halves the countdown instead of dropping it to 60 seconds. The good ol' auth disk can be inserted to add (crew member) or shave off (nuke ops) 3 min once, but this is entirely optional.
  • The Syndicate leader spawns with an old-fashioned auth disk pinpointer. His team may want to use it to infiltrate the station stealthily in preparation for the main strike.
  • Made the nuke invulnerable to explosions (shame on you, suicide bombers). However, it actually takes damage from melee attacks now, and a couple of people with looted eswords will make short work of it. Unchanged: you can also shoot, laser or EMP the nuke.
  • Removed some 2011-era code that would magically teleport the nuke back to Z1 under certain circumstances. The pod method of dealing with the nuke should be more reliable as a result.
  • Late-joining antagonists no longer make an appearance in this game mode.

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

Keelin updated
  • Added an option to select your preferred targeting cursor to player preferences.
  • Ported over number binding for abilities to changelings, wizards and vampires. ctrl+shift click an ability to enable binding mode, then press a number you want bound to that ability. This only works in WASD mode.
  • Made some changeling and wizard abilities "sticky". This means they will stay on your cursor after using them unless they are on cooldown afterwards. Clicking their button again or pressing the assigned hotkey again will remove them from your cursor.

Friday, September 25th, 2015

SpyGuy + FreshLemon updated
  • Mentoring HotawhatBaabhabhiat (did I spell that right? I got no idea)

Thursday, September 24th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Fixed a longstanding issue where monkies would be nonresponsive to rajaijah. This probably pleases a handful of people

Wednesday, September 23th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Fixed explosions doing no damage to people.
  • Nerfed pipe bombs because by default they should not be able to gib a dude. Sorry guys, you'll just have to make them stronger if you want to do that.

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Reduced the resource file even further (by another 20mb or so) with help from ErikHanson.
  • Some sounds might be a bit off! There's like 2000+ sound files so we couldn't test them all. If you spot one that does, please post in this topic:

Wednesday, September 16th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Ok it's back in (with some additional help from ErikHanson), this time the sprites shouldn't be visibly affected.
  • Reduced the resource filesize by like 25mb or so because I'm freakin' awesome.
  • Ok it's like, 90% because Somepotato made a thing for me but I'm still taking the credit ok.

Monday, September 7th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Fixing up a bunch of popups that I probably broke with the CDN introduction. This includes: the Material Recombobulator, the Workbench (smelter) and the Artifact Research Computer.
  • Fix for the traits popup appearing underneath the top byond titlebar, preventing movement/closing.

Wednesday, September 2nd, 2015

Convair updated
  • Due to popular demand, wrestling moves don't use manual aiming anymore in case there's only one target nearby.
  • Inconsistent behavior is unintuitive to some extent (and was the motivation for that particular change), but it's acceptable if you prefer the status quo.

Tuesday, September 1st, 2015

Convair updated
  • Sprites for all changeling abilities have been added, courtesy of Sundance420.

August 2015

Monday, August 31th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Wrestling belts no longer use the legacy verb-based system.

Friday, August 28th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Radioactive Blowouts were disabled for a little bit and now have been enabled again after some fixes.
  • PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF: you get irradiated in an area where you don't think you should get irradiated during a blowout

Wednesday, August 26th, 2015

Hull updated
  • Added some protection for wraiths losing both of their lives too quickly. Added: New genetic effect, chemical, and food

Tuesday, August 25th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Vampire: did away with the legacy verb-based system. Abilities should be easier to use as a result, and provide better feedback to the player.

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Enabled what I'm calling "CDN resource mode". This basically stops byond from sending you files necessary for popups and such, and instead links to where they are hosted on an external server (goonhub).
  • This replaces the resource preloader thing and will eliminate all popup related lag. Aside from that, you shouldn't notice much difference.
  • However, if you do spot a popup with a broken image or broken styling or whatever, please let me know.

Sunday, August 23th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Added an AZERTY mode for WASD hotkeys. Look for the toggles in the Toggles tab and your character preferences.
Daeren updated
  • After a bunch of testing and discussion I've made a bunch of changes, some major and some minor. If it goes well I might bump up wraith spawn rate.
  • The Big Change: Absorb Corpse's cooldown starts at 45 seconds and scales exponentially with each use. Much faster early game, much harder to get into scientific notation with your wraith points.
  • The Big Change 2: Wraiths can only survive one banishment now, instead of two. When banished, Absorb Corpse's scaling and cooldown are reset.
  • Revenants make a bigger, angrier red message when animated.
  • Push has apparently had a very long-standing bug where it didnt work right on objects or doors, w h o o p s that's fixed now.
  • Possess Object's cooldown reduced by 30 seconds.
  • Salt lines can now be destroyed by careless foot traffic. Walking dramatically reduces the chance to scuff up a salt line, but its still not a great idea to put them in incredibly high traffic areas. Try using walls or redundant layers.
  • If you notice any added bugs or weirdness dial 1-800-IMC-ODER
  • These tweaks, as always, are subject to re-tweaking based on further testing and input.

Thursday, August 20th, 2015

Wire updated
  • I know this changelog window is looking a little weird around the titlebar (probably). No need to message me about it, I'll fix it when I'm not hella tired.

Sunday, August 16th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Adding gimmick reasons / details to assassination missions. Make sure your targets know WHY they're on the list!
  • Huge thanks to, in no particular order, ErikHanson, Nurdock, Azungar, Nitrous, Dabir, Xavieri, oxy and Gannets for the great help in coming up with these!
Haine updated
  • Added a command to toggle seeing mentorhelps on or off for mentors. Somehow we made it this long without having that. Whoops!
  • May be buggy, I can't really test it fully by myself. Let me know if there's a problem!

Friday, August 14th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Added shortcuts for the AI's internal radios. Prefix your message with ':1', ':2' or ':3' respectively.
  • AI shells and AI-controlled cyborgs can also use them, assuming you have a mainframe and it isn't incapacitated.

Thursday, August 13th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Modified the resource distribution code to make joining rounds smoother.
  • In case any web-based interfaces / windows behave strangely, please report it on the forums.

Sunday, August 9th, 2015

Convair updated
  • AI shells and AI-controlled cyborgs now have access to the 'Open nearest door' verb.
SpyGuy updated
  • The AI changing its status will now be reflected on the core as well.
  • It can also set its own colour at will.
  • Nukeops pinpointers now point to the nuke instead.

Saturday, August 8th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • A new attachment for tank transfer valves! Wow!
  • More pressure = more better.

Thursday, August 6th, 2015

volundr updated
  • Made atmos drain rooms with holes in them much faster. This causes less lag, but has the side effect of making you die. Wear internals when shit gets busted.
  • Fixed a memory leak related to animation and matrix transforms. Should make for much less round-end lag.

July 2015

Friday, July 31th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Fixed click-dragging barcode labels onto crates and stuff. Cyborgs might find it useful.
  • Also fixed the optical meson upgrade for cyborgs.

Thursday, July 16th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Certain assemblies are somewhat more flexible now:
  • Mousetrap bomb (+ non-chem grenade), mousetrap car (+ non-chem grenade and pipe bomb), suicide bomb vest (+ non-chem grenade and pipe bomb).
Haine updated
  • The ice moon lattice bug should be fixed now. Lemme know if not.

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

Haine updated
  • ProDocs now accept health analyzer upgrades. This lets them scan people's health from a distance. Click on the goggles in-hand to toggle it.
  • Fixed up pens and the like so that they use fancy fonts again.
  • Everyone now starts with a (probably) unique handwriting style and signature.

Tuesday, July 14th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Fiddled with the status tab area a bit. Removed the "Game" tab. Let me know of any formatting issues.
Infinite Monkeys updated
  • You can now name your save profiles. The name is displayed instead of a number under the Load menu.
  • Heads can now be impaled on rods, up to three per rod.

Monday, July 13th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Three new buttons in the top-right with corresponding verbs. Will open up relevent pages in your browser. No more lazy people mentorhelping for the wiki.
  • The chat should possibly maybe preserve history on round restart now (instead of clearing). We'll see if this actually works
Infinite Monkeys updated
  • Syndicate and Wizard modes will no longer end instantly if the antagonists die. Instead, once they are all dead late join antagonists may begin to appear. This won't happen if the bad guys are kept alive and locked up somewhere!
  • You can now chop off people's limbs from the strip menu while holding certain items. This is slower than surgery, but only requires them to be unable to move.

Friday, July 10th, 2015

Infinite Monkeys updated
  • The power transmission laser's earnings are no longer linear. Feedback is needed on the forums - even just posting data on round duration, peak laser output and your earnings would be helpful!
  • The PTL beam will now change alpha depending on how much power it is transmitting.

Thursday, July 9th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Prototype popup window reskin thing! Only applied to this very changelog window at the moment.
  • If it completely messes up for you, just use the "Changelog" verb again to close the window manually.
  • Major credit to Somepotato for the original idea and code.

Wednesday, July 8th, 2015

Infinite Monkeys updated
  • Added a load more object suicides. See if you can find them all!

Saturday, July 4th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Underwear now works like hair and all that other nonsense and your old underwear choices are probably now broken, so go re-clothe yourselves you naked freaks.
  • The thing that randomizes appearances now works the same regardless of if you're doing it via the character options panel or a DNA scrambler. It used to be two similar but different sets of code. Might be a bit buggy from the change, let me know.

June 2015

Monday, June 29th, 2015

Convair updated
  • The captain's antique laser gun can now be repaired. How? Up to you to find out.
  • You may want to use some decent-quality replacement parts, though.
Haine updated
  • You can now use an AI interface board in place of a brain when making a cyborg. This allows the AI to use the borg's body. This is a terribly hacky mess and it's undoubtedly still buggy for the moment.
  • AI shells can now be built with any power cell you'd like. Why would you use a really big cell in a shell? Who knows, but you can.

Thursday, June 24th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Another stationary chemicompiler in the test chamber itself.

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Added a handful of new genetics genes.

Tuesday, June 23th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Chameleon and Cloak of Darkness now grant powers that allow you to switch them on and off at will.

Monday, June 22th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Additional genetics UI tweaks. Markers will now turn white when you have the correct sequence.
  • Added Autocomplete feature. If you have already activated a gene once, you can hit autocomplete to get the sequence. Encryption locks must still be broken, however.
  • Added Booster Gene Y and Booster Gene Z.
  • High Complexity DNA is easier to unlock now (2 locks instead of 4), and also can be used as a wildcard in gene combination.
  • Appearance and Body Type are now fully accessible from the beginning.
  • Removed: Booster Gene Q, Saturated Junk DNA, Hair Follicle Research, Body Type Research
Haine updated
  • Removed a bunch of sprites that were no longer needed - if you see something weird happening with clothing like a missing sprite, please let me know.

Sunday, June 21th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Adding an automatic ban for clientside mods that affect data being sent to the server.
  • In case you are running any sort of mods and still wish to play here you should disable them now.
  • If you don't know if your client is modded or not it isn't.
Convair updated
  • Reworked medical sleepers, which should now be capable of keeping light-crit patients stabilized for a reasonable amount of time (as opposed to being pretty much pointless).
  • They're still no substitute for a doctor, but it should buy you enough time to grab the right type of medicine from the medical vendor or something.
Hull updated
  • Split medbay off into seperate areas for the lobby and operating theater which should spread out the APC drain.

Wednesday, June 17th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Genetics interface changed a bit. Grey genes have not been researched, yellow ones have been researched but not activated, and green ones have been activated.
  • Fixed a bug that prevented you from adding stored mutations to a subject.
Convair updated
  • The experimental generator (available through QM) is now capable of charging APCs, and I also buffed the charge rate.

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Back end changes to porters (Port-a-Brig etc) and old (non-PDA) remotes.
  • Home turf and remote-to-device link aren't hard-coded anymore. Click-drag the machine onto a floor tile to designate it as the new home location.
  • You can order additional Port-a-Brigs from the cargo bay if you so desire.

Sunday, June 14th, 2015

Infinite Monkeys updated
  • You can now buy things directly from the Supply Request Console outside the Quartermasters' Office using money from your personal account. It's still delivered to the same place, though, so you'll need the quartermasters to give it to you.

Saturday, June 13th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Added Port-a-NanoMed remote to most medical PDAs, and a Port-a-Sci remote to the RD's PDA.
I Said No updated
  • Activators that have successfully activated a power in a human (not monkeys!) can be recycled by putting them back in the genetics terminal.
  • Doing this yields various rewards, and will decrease research costs and times up to a cap.
  • One of the new rewards is Chromosomes, which can be used on activated mutations to improve them in various ways.
  • The research time and cost reduction research articles are gone, as they are obsolete due to activator recycling.
  • Booster Gene A, B and C are also gone as they were obsoleted by the new chromosomes feature.

Wednesday, June 10th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Security and HoS PDAs now come pre-loaded with a Port-a-Brig remote. Also added a few blank PDAs to the sec vending machine, considering that redshirts are a frequent target for PDA bombers.
Wire updated
  • New 'Link IRC' verb. Associates your byond username with your irc nickname. Will be useful in the future for certain IRC bot commands.
I Said No updated
  • Genetics can now access DNA samples directly from the station's medical database instead to having to scan them.
  • Activating a gene from someone's latent pool no longer causes any stability loss.
  • Geneticists can now create Activator syringes, which only activate latent powers.
  • Fixed a few interface bugs in the genetics computer.

Tuesday, June 9th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Hairstyles and detail options have been merged into one list. Go hog wild.
  • Your customization choices preview should sync up with what you actually get in game now.

Monday, June 8th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Meteor Shield Generators now use far less power. Due to some other unlisted changes, I strongly recommend taking advantage of this buff.

Sunday, June 7th, 2015

Infinite Monkeys updated
  • The power transmission laser can now instantly detonate people at high enough energies.
  • Improved the controls for input and output of the laser.

Friday, June 5th, 2015

Haine updated
  • New and improved escape shuttle! It now spends a bit of time in transit to centcom before arriving. Buckle up!
SpyGuy updated
  • Changes to how human icons are handled. Please report any bugs or strange behaviour you find.
I Said No updated
  • Traitor objectives have been messed with. There are now many more combinations of objectives available, in addition to some all-new objectives:
  • Damage Area: Cause a significant amount of damage to a chosen room.
  • Destroy Equipment: Destroy all instances of a chosen piece of equipment on the station.
  • Job Genocide: Kill all crewmembers of a particular job.
  • Off the Heads: Kill all the head personnel.
  • No Clones: Make sure no cloned crew survive.
  • Supremacy: Be the last antagonist standing.
  • Gimmick and Miscreant objective lists have also been tweaked a bit.

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Pod changes: You can click-drag yourself onto a pod to board it. There is now also a Leave Pod button in the bottom-right corner when inside a pod.
  • Pod Cargo Hold change: You can click-drag the pod to a nearby tile to unload stuff there.
  • New pod secondary system: Ore Scoop. Drive over ore to pick it up, clickdrag the pod to a nearby tile to unload it.
  • New pod comms system part: Magnet Link Array. Allows you to control the mining magnet from within 7 tiles from inside a pod.
  • The mining department now starts with a Mineral Accumulator.

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Tweaked critter backend, should significantly reduce lag.
  • Critters might be lazier as a result. Please report any issues.
I Said No updated
  • Pod communication systems are now used to interface with dock controls. If you don't have a comms system or you have the wrong one, you'll be denied access.
  • Syndicate pods start with a different communications system to station pods. You can't just go in through the pod bays anymore.
Haine updated
  • There's now a civilian radio channel, for chefs/botanists/etc.

May 2015

Sunday, May 31th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • New stock market event type.
  • Also adjusted the effects events have. Overall, they should leave a larger dent. Or a larger profit in your hands.
Convair updated
  • Gun components have finally been updated for the new projectile code.
Infinite Monkeys updated
  • Engineers can now sell power with a giant laser. Thanks to Gannets for the awesome sprites! It'll definitely need adjusting so please leave feedback on the forums.

Saturday, May 30th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • Cytines have been replaced with a variety of different gemstones.
  • You can now load mined Viscerite into enzymatic reclaimers.
Haine updated
  • Ehh nevermind about the cloning for money thing.
  • Clowns have functional bank accounts again.

Friday, May 29th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Due to budget cuts, cloning is no longer provided for free from Nanotrasen.
Keelin updated
  • Adding, removing and changing various traits. As per usual, nothing is final.

Wednesday, May 27th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • Dump out any storage objects by taking them in a hand and click-dragging it onto the ground (or a table).
Convair updated
  • Light bulb fixture parts can now be crafted from metal sheets. Also fixed the bug that made it impossible to attach them to reinforced walls.
Keelin updated
  • Fixed the fat trait swallowing your PDA and ID and such. They can now be found in your backpack.
  • Short-sighted trait now spawns you with glasses.
  • Toned down kleptomaniac slightly and made sure it only fires when you're alive.
  • Career alcoholic will now only somewhat slur your speech.
  • Traits are now visible in the medical records.
  • New traits: Deaf, Adamantium skeleton, Cat eyes, Infravision, Spacephobia, Robust genetics, Good genes, Bad genes.
  • Removed Trait: Overly soggy
  • Mutations gained through traits will now show up in your notes.
Haine updated
  • Fixed not being able to unlock APCs with a PDA that has an ID in it. Made swapping IDs quicker, just click with the new one and the old one will automatically be ejected.

Tuesday, May 26th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • The pray verb returns. Use it to in an attempt to gain the attention of whatever god happens to be listening.
  • Note that divine attention may not be something you want and it might not end well for you. Use at your own peril.
  • Also there's a high chance that nobody is listening, but you never know...
Keelin updated
  • First batch of traits.
  • All traits are subject to change. Especially ones that change damage, health or stamina. They are controversial and we're just gonna test this for a bit.

Monday, May 25th, 2015

I Said No updated
  • The nuke should no longer repeatedly detonate when the timer counts down.
  • Examining the nuke now shows whether or not it is unsecured, and how much time is left on the bomb if it is armed. It also shows roughly how much damage the bomb has taken.
Keelin updated
  • Putting down the framework for selectable traits in your player options. The stuff that's in there is all silly placeholders (but they do work).
  • It might be a bit unresponsive & look like ass until im done.

Sunday, May 24th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • Adding events to the stock exchange. Good analysts may be able to predict the outcome. Bad analysts will lose a lot of money.
SpyGuy updated
  • Refactoring crates into a new standard. Report bugs with crates and crate-like things if you see any.
I Said No updated
  • Nuclear Emergency mode has been substantially changed. The operatives must now take the bomb to a specific location on the station, arm it, and then make sure it detonates.
  • The crew ideally must prevent the bomb from being armed, but if it is it can either be destroyed by various means or unanchored by using a screwdriver and taken off the station map to avoid the station's destruction.
  • The nuclear bomb can be loaded into pods. Also, the nuclear disk no longer exists. Good riddance.
  • More changes to come. This stuff is WIP for now.

Thursday, May 21th, 2015

Haine updated

Tuesday, May 19th, 2015

Convair updated
  • The teleport gun should no longer be unreliable and temperamental.

  • Being invisible will no longer make you deaf because the soundwaves can't see you (what)
  • Cloakers shouldn't turn off in your pocket any more.
Wire updated
  • Having the chat area focused and pressing arrow keys will now correctly switch focus.
  • Screenshot and reconnect commands now send a notification to the chat area.
  • Added error message for a chat output load-failure (very rare case).

Saturday, May 16th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Solars are no longer hotwired by default.

Friday, May 15th, 2015

Convair updated
  • The wizard's spellshield now protects against projectiles as advertised. More of a bug fix, really.

Thursday, May 14th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Fixed a shitload of html encoding issues (or lack thereof) affecting newchat.
  • Fixed a bunch of exploits reported by Somepotato.
  • Please note I am a terrible coder so I'm not 100% sure that I didn't just break everything. Let me know if the following start screwing up:
  • Fabricators, vending machines, the HoP ATM computer thing, the PDA Ticketmaster module, pod "Create Wormhole" action, adding power cells to a recharging dock, removing a cyborg's brain and basically every mechanic tool that spits text to chat.
  • Good luck!

Tuesday, May 12th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • Changeling acid spit now functions as a splash of fluorosulfuric acid rather than that illogical knockout biz it did before.

Monday, May 11th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Tweaked electric chairs a little. You can either...
  • 1) Deploy them in a powered area as usual (lethal does around 80 BURN).
  • 2) Wire them directly into the power grid. Don't bother if the engine's output isn't half-decent, though.
Wire updated
  • Clickable links in the chat area will now open in your default browser (rather than all IE all the time).

Sunday, May 10th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Greatly reduced the spam of "Connection may be closed..." messages.
  • Now you can choose up to 5 strings to highlight. Also the strings and the color persist through rounds now (they save themselves).

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Improved an annoying bit of the chat output with regards to focus stealing. Now, if your focus happens to be on the chat output and you start typing, it will send the first character to the input box (whereas before it skipped the first character you pressed).
  • Also fixed a mildly rare occurring error for the chat output in cases on blank messages being sent to it. If your output tended to break entirely at random points, this will probably fix that.
  • New option: Clear all messages. Pretty much what it sounds like.
Marquesas updated
  • It's-a me, Marquesas doing more changes which:
  • - Best case scenario, go completely unnoticed
  • - Worst case scenario, break people attacking eachother (a p insignificant feature)
  • All I'm saying is if something is off, please write it down on a paper, go to your nearest DongLabs Customer Support Window, get in line with the 50 other outraged players and hand it to the nice lady with the butt hat.
  • On the plus side I no longer need a plastic bag while looking at mob attack code so there's a plus.

Monday, May 4th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Fixed ctrl + c on highlighted text in the chat output not actually copying text.
  • New chat feature: highlight string. Will put a yellow background on a defined string for all future messages. Probably mostly useful to highlight your own name.
Marquesas updated
  • Fixed numerous issues with the new changeling ability system.
  • Everything finally seems to be using this new system. This may have introduced several regressions, however. Keep me posted.

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

Keelin updated
  • Rewriting large parts of the material system. Expect wonky behaviour until I'm done.
  • Quality of asteroids now affects quality of the resulting material. Material quality now changes the maximum of property values (toughness etc.).

Saturday, May 2nd, 2015

Conor12 updated
  • Strawberries!
  • Strawberry plants, strawberry pies and other strawberry stuff.
  • Sprites provided by a strawberry clown.
Marquesas updated
  • Moved changelings to the ability system that wizards and other very able stuff are using.
  • Naturally, this might mean a myriad of bugs. As usual, you know where to find me.

Friday, May 1st, 2015

Wire updated
  • Fixed new chat output for those who had issues loading it.
  • Implemented a new ping meter that displays in the chat area. Updates every 60 seconds and displays visually. We'll see how well this works live.
  • A bunch of other minor improvements and fixes related to the chat panel.
  • Added option to disable the ping display. Revamped the options menu UI.
Haine updated
  • A few new hairs.
  • Monkeys behave slightly differently.

April 2015

Thursday, April 30th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Presents containing dead guys are no longer invisible and named "spresent".
  • Voice changers are now an item that can be put into masks, rather than a mask itself.
  • IV drips/blood packs/etc now hold up to 250u, rather than 100u.

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Some UI improvements to the chat output. Also changed the font. I expect this to fuck with all of you appropriately.
Keelin updated
  • Ouija boards are now observable. The cooldown period on ouija boards is now per-person - so you can still use them when there's a bunch of other ghosts.

Tuesday, April 28th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Chat output now has an options dropdown menu that contains the text zoom buttons as well as a new "Save Chat Log" button.
  • The chat log thing opens an IE window containing the css and html of everything in your current chat output. You then have to copy and paste this to save it. No it's not ideal, but it's the best I can do for now.
Keelin updated
  • The chapel now has 3 ouija boards to allow the crew to speak to spirits. Kinda. Sorta. Uhhh excuse me.

Sunday, April 25th, 2015

Conor12 updated
  • Added a new vehicle to the warehouse. Feel free to tell me what you think of it.

Thursday, April 23th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Blob players now get an alert if any of their nuclei are under attack.

Wednesday, April 22th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Added options in the chat window for changing your font size. Increased default font size from 12px to 13px;
  • Changing the size should save it automatically. Let me know if it doesn't.
  • Re-added a form of the 'Connection closed.' message back. It isn't perfect and will occur during heavy lag. Further work will be done on it.
  • Fixed a caching issue momentarily preventing new functionality (and in some cases breaking existing functionality).
  • Improved 'click tolerance' with regards to the chat window stealing focus. Should help with cases of clicking on the chat window and not being able to input byond commands.

Tuesday, April 21th, 2015

Wire updated
  • The chat area of your interface has been changed to what is known in shitty byond coding circles as a browser output window.
  • Initially you won't see much of a change at all, but it allows us to do a lot more things with output in general. I have also tried my best to keep the functionality as identical as possible to the old output.
  • However! This involved changing code in roughly 800+ files so there is bound to be something fucked up that I missed! Please report it here:

Monday, April 20th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Made a number of backend changes regarding kinetic firearms and ammo handling. Better user feedback, fewer bugs. What this means for you:
  • Automatic updates (descriptions and icons where applicable) for all ammo boxes. Guns can be examined to check the current ammo type, and also be unloaded at will. The .357 Mag revolver can chamber .38 Spc rounds like in RL.
  • Spent casings are now a thing. Some guns eject them automatically (shotguns, .22 pistol), others on reload (revolvers, zip gun). And yes, the forensic profile of the gun is taken into account.
Marquesas updated
  • Happy 420!
  • Slightly reorganized how spells are attached to the wizard. This might result in some unexpected behaviour. As usual, you know where to find me.

Sunday, April 19th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Fixed the bullet schematics of the general manufacturer, which were set up improperly for like 6 months. Zip gun users rejoice.

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

Convair updated
  • The bomb VR shouldn't be broken anymore. If the bomb doesn't trigger after ~10 seconds, chances are it's a dud.
Haine updated
  • Half of the rewrite of crates/closets is now done - all closets and lockers are now using the new system. Please let me know if you see weirdness going on with them or if something's broken.
  • Health monitor implants (the ones from the cloner and medbay/robotics manufacturers) will now alert medical staff when the person implanted drops into crit or dies.
  • DNA scramblers now make people look kinda sorta a bit more normal and are likely more useful as a result.

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

Daeren updated
  • Wraiths are now hopefully less ridiculously unstoppable in experienced hands due to a slight nerf of Absorb Corpse's scaling.
  • Additionally, the chaplain has enrolled in a mail-order ghostbuster training program, and can resist many (but not all) of a wraith's powers. Clever wraiths still have several options to fight back.
  • Bibles now hurt wraiths and revenants.
  • This update totally didn't disappear for most of a day due to a drive-by imcodering

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015

Daeren updated
  • Chaplains are now actually immune to (most) vampire shenanigans a la immunity to (most) wizard shenanigans. There may be Surprises for vampires who try anyway.
  • This update brought to you by me trying to make the chaplain anything but a permanently enrolled gimmick job, so more changes are in the works.

Monday, April 13th, 2015

Daeren updated
  • Blobs and wraiths now have their own preference buttons that work in theory.
  • Alert us if this screws up the selection process or objectives somehow so I can immediately blame Mport.

Sunday, April 12th, 2015

Wire updated
  • Blobs can now talk to each other via a special 'channel'
  • They can also now hear people within range of the blob overmind
  • (aaand fixed the bug that allowed everyone to hear the blobchat)

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Bringing some of the limb stuff up to the new standard (mostly robolimb stuff).
  • Getting augmented should now be a lot more attractive.
  • Changed ~something~ about item pies and the fryer.

Friday, April 10th, 2015

Convair updated
  • We're still tweaking vampires, don't panic. Rejuvenate fully replenishes stamina, for instance.
  • There's been some backend changes regarding eye and ear protection checks. All in all, things should be fairly consistent across the board now.
  • Can't flash somebody who's blindfolded, a deaf person isn't affected by sonic grenades, sunglasses and welding masks do the same etc. You get the idea.

Wednesday, April 8th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Finally made vampires drain actual blood from people rather than just doing 10 points of damage and then saying "welp they have no more blood" when they hit 200 total brute
  • This will probably change the balance of vampires a bit, I guess. eh.

Tuesday, April 7th, 2015

Convair updated
  • AP ammo for the .38 revolver now comes in a box of three. 1 speedloader for 2 TC was poor value compared to other traitor items.
  • Added one of those fancy self-charging power cells to the surplus crate pool.

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Keelin updated
  • You can now switch out the energy cells used by guns. The recipe for this is on the workbench.

Sunday, April 5th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Gibs can now be analyzed for forensic evidence.

Wednesday, April 1st, 2015

  • Strawberry the clown thought she'd help the heads by washing their fancy hats. Unfortunately she used too hot water and they shrank! Oh no!
  • 'laugh track'
Marquesas updated
  • Disabled motives temporarily as they underwent some fine-tuning.
  • All-in-all you should be experiencing a richer RP experience from the revised rates of affection.

March 2015

Tuesday, March 31th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • In an effort to give more utility to some unique jobs, we are introducing a motive system. Keeping your motives high is rewarding on your long run!
  • Remember, this is a system in beta testing. You know where to find a coder if you find any weird issues.

Thursday, March 26th, 2015

  • Fixed the light given from being on fire from sticking around after the fire is gone.
  • Those with good memories will know that this is my third attempt at fixing this. :hngh:

  • Yet another batch of chemistry backend tweaks.
  • Let me know if I broke everything.

Thursday, March 19th, 2015

Convair updated
  • Somewhat extensive update of forensics:
  • Every pair of gloves has an unique ID, so detecting "insulative fibers" on a door isn't as useless anymore.
  • Gunshot residue has been added for kinetic firearms. If you found those on a greyshirt, chances are they were up to something.
  • Reminder: forensic profiles for guns and projectiles were already a thing.
  • The fingerprint system should be more robust in general now. Melee attacks, pulling, accessing somebody's inventory etc. all leave prints on the victim.
  • Forensic scanners have also been updated. Detectives will be pleased to learn that the non-PDA version (new sprite courtesy of Gannets) can search the security records on the go.
  • How to get rid of implicating evidence? Take a shower or wash the item in question with space cleaner (a sink does the trick as well).
  • Other misc changes: added user feedback for silenced guns (.22 pistol, crossbow), stungloves are charged by using a power cell on them.

Monday, March 16th, 2015

  • Throw a thing at disposal outlets. (please note that jerks count as things for the purposes of this exercise)

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

  • Okay the auto wasd thing is going away again for now because it's creating hella runtimes.

Saturday, March 14th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Check your preferences window: you now have the option to have WASD mode turn itself on by default when you open the game.
  • It should work.
  • Maybe.
  • It worked in testing.

Monday, March 9th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • In case you're wondering, it's 12:01 AM so it's the 9th in the significant places of the world.
  • Update ft. Pacra: Total telecrystal cost reorganization.
  • Further extending the module research stuff in Robotics. Phasing out powerful modules in favour of future research and assembly.

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Haine updated
  • Mousetrap + borg arm + pie. Have fun.
  • Blood packs are now reagent containers, like beakers or syringes. There are also now IV stands you can hang them on, which can attach to beds or chairs by click-dragging them.

Monday, March 2nd, 2015

Haine updated
  • Click on a die with another die to bunch them together, or click-drag a die onto another die to gather any die around you into a bunch. There can be up to 20 dice in a handful of them.

SpyGuy updated
  • Chemistry reactions instant again. Some other chem related tweaks.
Haine updated
  • Some emote changes, mostly backend stuff.
  • THE ALT EMOTE FOR BIRDWELL IS NO LONGER *flex. It's now *burp. This may or may not have anything to do with the hotkey for *burp being CTRL+B.
  • New hotkeys for pointing: CTRL+P to toggle point mode on or off, P in WASD mode. Hold down B in WASD to quickly point.
  • If you manage to open a crate/locker inside of something else (say, a pod), it'll now throw all its contents out on the ground, rather than implanting them into the pod's very being, never to be seen again.

Thursday, February 26th, 2015

  • Expendable borg upgrades will no longer break upgrade slots. Safe to use now.

Wednesday, February 25th, 2015

Haine feat. Convair updated
  • Vendor Borg Memorial Update.

Sunday, February 22th, 2015

Hull updated
  • Changed how the blob random event works.
Haine updated
  • Changes to surgery: a greater base chance to fuck up a cut, anesthesia/analgetics will reduce this, as well as the over-all damage the patient takes during surgery. If you fuck up, you gotta redo the cut. You need to be way more drunk to do self-surgery now. Glasses no longer get in the way of surgeries that target the head.
  • Body bags.

Saturday, February 21th, 2015

  • Added the "Reconnect" command to the menu under File
Hull updated
  • Changing light bulbs and tubes is easier, just smack a fixture with a bulb or tube in your hand and you'll swap them, including broken ones.

Friday, February 20th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • Changed AI camera behaviour so that cameras match NORTH-SOUTH connections.
  • What this means in practice is that if you head south from one camera, then north it will lead you back to where you started (in most cases).
  • There will still be cases where this does not work 100%

Thursday, February 19th, 2015

SpyGuy updated
  • AI Camera backend optimizations. AI play should be a lot smoother now.
  • Cut cameras will no longer be a confusing jump. They will show static.
  • Tweaked the camera pathfinding, it should behave a lot more like you would expect now.
  • If you find bugs please report them.
Haine updated
  • Moving rollerbeds. Also moving office chairs (unscrew them from the floor). Also you can tuck sheets into beds and then they move with the bed.
  • Bugtesting this code last night is the reason I'm exhausted today so you BETTER ENJOY IT (it's still probably buggy and weird)

Wednesday, February 18th, 2015

Haine updated
  • Security jobs now start with two new verbs: "Say Miranda Rights" and "Set Miranda Rights". There's also an emote for those with the verbs, *miranda

  • Telekinesis works by click-dragging items from one tile to another now, sending them flying.

  • You can now create announcements using the computer in the communications room.
  • Here's to the faint hope that it will not get ran into the ground.
Haine updated
  • Finally added in some stuff that I've had the sprites for for a while (bucket helmets, skull chalices, surgical shields, wrestling masks, bald caps)
  • Thanks to SLthePyro, Gannets and Hempuli for the sprites!
  • Some other stuff.

  • Increased damage to blob done by sarin, cyanide, fluorosulfuric acid, polonium and radium.
  • Poison now does double damage. In addition to its initial damage, it does the same amount of damage over time as well.
  • Poison damage now propagates. If a blob tile dies, the remaining poison DoT is split evenly between all surrounding blob tiles.
  • QUITE POSSIBLY fixed the ripping out of your body brain bug. Hopefully. IDK. I think I did.
  • This might cause some oddities or deviations from old behaviour. Please note these on the bug reports forums.

  • Blobs are now vulnerable to quite a few poisons. You'll want to spray these, preferably without friendly fire!
  • Further fiddled with the way fires work.

  • This will probably also boost a lot of healing stuff.

Thursday, January 22th, 2015

  • This update is not an essay.
  • Blobs should have a new tool for fighting fire. MAYBE SOMETIME SOON WE MIGHT REACH AN EQUILIBRUM.

Wednesday, January 21th, 2015

Daeren updated
  • After the barrage of genetics nerfs it's time to tweak one that was probably too punishing in retrospect.
  • This wasn't in the changelog before now (I think) but the feature is this: Powers give you genetic instability. The lower it is, the more Terrible Things happen to you.
  • The change: BAD mutations now give you MORE stability, and low stability doesn't make you mutate like you gargled with the Ooze from Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
  • Yes, this means that if you want to activate a bunch of superpowers at once, you will either deal with the Bad Shit that happens with low stability or you need to layer Bad Shit on yourself with bad mutations. IMO this is way more entertaining than just having an arbitrary "fuck you" limit.
  • The actual stability increases and decreases for certain genes have been tweaked a bit, and may require further balancing after "playtesting" (watching people run shit into the ground), so please give your input on the forums/to admins/whatever if you've got a bone to pick about the new system.

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

Daeren updated
  • You may notice that medbay has been remodeled. We noticed that genetics wasn't really using half of its floor space so they don't get to have it anymore.
  • We also noticed that genetics would ignore corpses in favor of fetching more monkeys from the monkey pen, so now their access to it goes through the surgical bay so the antisocial fuckers are forced to at least acknowledge the rest of the station.
  • We took away the Port-A-Genes too while we were at it because wow, THAT experiment backfired!
  • Nearly forgot, we put safety inhibitors in the enzymatic reclaimer so you can't just stuff living people that have mildly annoyed you inside without emagging it first.
  • As part of the remodeling to encourage geneticists to do their goddamned jobs, surgery and cryo share their space now to give a more natural flow to treating the critically injured.
  • This update was brought to you by Roboticists.

Thursday, January 15th, 2015

Marquesas updated
  • Here's a list of things I committed the past few days, because I forgot to update this I guess?
  • Pod artillery platform now works with 40mm HE grenades. That means you have to resupply. Insert the ammo while the panel is open.
  • You only have yourself to blame for this change if this bothers you.
  • Ingesting phlogiston and chlorine trifluoride now should be a much worse idea. Why was this literally harmless in the first place?
  • Smoke size now scales with the amount of reagents it is composed of. You'll find that your 1-unit smokes are now barely a puff of dust.
  • Finally, but most importantly: Blob has been released. I'm still working on the balance but it shouldn't be far too biased in favour of one side.

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

  • Okay 3,267 parrots is a bit excessive. Flaptonium now works like Life, lest we nearly crash a server with an excess of birds again.

Saturday, January 10th, 2015

  • RIP Cyborg phantom health.
  • In theory this means everything should work in a sane way now.

  • The cyborg teleport upgrade suddenly remembered it needs a telecrystal to work. Oh dear.

  • The code for hearts and heart surgery has changed a bit - you shouldn't notice any changes, but if you do, let me know.
  • Cards can now be tapped and untapped, see the playing card tips & tricks page in the card vendor for more info.
  • Shuffling a tarot deck will reverse some of the cards now. Spooky.

SpyGuy updated
  • Updated the materials counter on the genetics modifier to show the current generation rate.
  • The cloning pod now comes with the ability to disable the granting of this bonus for a slight increase in cloning speed.
  • In practice this will mean that geneticists should be interested in ensuring they're the ones operating the cloner.

Monday, January 5th, 2015

  • Genetics now gets a bonus to material generation and equipment cooldown speeds when the cloner is running nominally.

  • Fixed a bug in the beaker application code, applying directly from the reserve tanks may be a lot less effective.
I Said No updated
  • You may notice a little tab in the bottom left corner - this can be used to switch between hotbars at the top of the screen.
  • Genetics powers are now buttons that appear at the top of the screen. In addition, some of them have been changed so you can click the button and then your target, similar to Wizard spells.
  • Late changelog entry: Genetics has been messed with. There's a bunch of new powers, and the rarity ratios have been re-adjusted.
  • There is now a tier 3 research item that allows you to store mutations in the genetics scanner, whereupon they can be inserted back into a different subject, have injectors made of them, or be combined with other mutations to create new ones.
  • An example recipe for you: combining the Immolate and Glowy mutations gets you Fire Resistance.
  • You can also view a list of mutations you've researched and make injectors of them.

  • Get ready for the best news ever: you can now build and deconstruct operating computers!!!!!!! WOAH!!!!

  • Hello. I completely reorganized projectiles being shot. This might mean things are broken.
  • If things do turn out to be broken, yell at me in an unaggravated, yet confident, but still relatively quiet manner.
  • In other news, miniputts no longer start with a weapon, however, normal pod weapons now go into both miniputts and pods.
  • The Strelka is an exception, it still has its shiny russian laser thing.
  • Tasers are now a bit more dangerous to pods. Yes. Tasers.
SpyGuy updated

  • Beepsky no longer gets confused and can finally make his way to the southern end of the station again. You can't outrun a radio! Unless the next beacon is too far away. Then the radio'll just hang out in the pool instead.
  • Some medal rewards are now claimable more than once, notably the NT-SO Commander Uniform, since you need specific things to get it anyway.
  • Cloaking generator: no longer useless due to layer issues.
  • Stamina icon on your HUD will now report details of your stamina if you click on any part of it, not just the stamina bar itself.
  • The Robotics operating computer will no longer tie itself to an operating table on Mars.
  • Implants weren't properly being cut out of people; the implant itself wasn't being relocated, so cutting one out from someone just sorta made an empty case and never actually removed the thing - except from the list of implants in the person, so then you could never get it out.

  • Right, so, some of you may have noticed that #1 is running construction continuously now.
  • Build your own station! PvE only!

  • Wired power -- only available in construction. Machines must be powered by leading wire knots to under them. Light fixtures on the walls require a full wire which ends on the border with the wall.

  • Nobody ever cared about room-temperature nitrogen gas, so...

Dr. Cogwerks updated
  • PDA Forensics Scan will now return the contraband level of illegal items.
  • That's the same value that makes beepsky yell about infraction levels.
  • PLAYER SUGGESTION: It would be rad if you folks could punish criminals based on these criteria:
  • How dangerous is their contraband?
  • How dangerous or destructive was their behavior?
  • This would be a lot more interesting than the usual "he's got traitor gear, legit kill time! he has nothing, let him go" stuff.
  • Changelingchat: I quietly changed health code a few weeks ago. Changelings will only die if their bodies are destroyed. Have fun.

  • People on fire now light up. There is a quirk with byond related to this if you can figure it out.
  • Canister bomb explosions tweaked. Now it is much harder to get very large explosions (although the 'small' size explosion is still easy to get and still bigger than tank transfer bombs).
  • 'Attachments' concept implemented to detonators. They now add wires to the resulting bomb for each attachment that control their actions and confuse the defuser.
  • Three new detonator attachments added to commemorate this new system. Can you find them all??

  • Hulks are now able to punch asteroids to destroy them. People with the Strong or Hulk genetic effects also get extra strength

Thursday, June 19th, 2014

  • A whole bunch more additive/flux effects for reagents in the smelter.

Saturday, May 24th, 2014

Keelin updated
  • You can now put reagents into the barrel next to the smelter to use them as additives for you material.
  • One bar uses the entire contents of the barrel. The barrel can only hold one reagent. You can only use additives once on a material.
  • This is subject to change.
  • The rarer / more exotic the reagent, the more dramatic the effect on the material.
  • Not all reagents have an effect on the materials yet and the ones that do aren't final. This is still very rough.
  • Reagent name should now influence the name of the material.

Friday, May 23th, 2014

Keelin updated
  • Added explosion protection and damage properties to materials.
  • Put a very rough manual on material properties in the smelter room.

Keelin updated
  • Added material support for more objects. Most notably windows and grilles as well explosion resistance on clothes on humans.

AngriestIBM updated
  • Treads are back for surgery!! The whole single leg dealy didn't play well with the changed limb system and that's why they were gone from surgery.
  • Treads are now two piece. They're manufactured together for the same price as before (Unless I FUCKED UP) and you can mix and match them with normal legs I guess.
Keelin updated
  • Material scanner near the smelter. This is a very basic thing to allow you to get a basic idea of what materials do.
  • Diversified materials a bit. Added more special and unique effects. Gold and stuff made from gold sparkles now. Just because.

Monday, May 20th, 2014

Keelin updated
  • Preliminary support for material traits (like erebite explosions) for the arc smelter / sheet press stuff.

  • Whole bunch of fixes and internal upgrades.
  • Uhm. There's also another machine near the smelter now that produces a different item. Yep.
  • Chemicals and drugs should no longer randomly permanently buff your stamina.
  • Igniter combos might or might not work properly with chemicals again.

Monday, May 19th, 2014

Keelin updated
  • Sheets produced by the sheet press using the arc smelter should now correctly work in constructing things.
  • Many objects now support material properties. Uqill armor would be pretty tough. Too bad you can't actually make that right now. But i guess you can make some fancy/tough walls?!

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

Keelin updated
  • Trying out some changes to stamina based on feedback.

  • Adjusted the point at which attacks become free. Might or might not drop costs entirely. We'll see.

Sunday, May 4th, 2014

Keelin updated
  • Now new but important to know: Armor has varying amounts if stamina damage protection. Numbers are not final and need balancing.
  • Items also have varying amounts of crit chance and stamina damage / cost.
  • In general, pointy or sharp objects will have a higher crit chance and heavy or large objects more stamina damage. Numbers not final.
  • Expect to see some items have stupid values that make no sense, probably because i missed them.
  • Attacks on borgs have been adjusted. Numbers not final.
  • Kicking someone on the ground will no longer endlessly stun them.

Saturday, May 3th, 2014

  • Cloaker will turn off if you attack anything outside of where you are standing, price reduced to 5 TC to compensate.
  • Hopefully this makes uses actually creative and not consistent bullshit murder sprees.
  • Teleporter will no longer randomly decide it wants to kill you.
Keelin updated
  • After gathering some feedback we're gonna try some new stuff for stamina:
  • Hitting 0 stamina will no longer knock you out instantly - instead you will become increasingly more vulnerable to stuns as your stamina goes into the negative. This is highly experimental..
  • However, hitting the negative stamina cap (indicated by a full, blinking stamina bar) will still knock you out.
  • Melee attacks now have a chance to cause critical stamina damage.
  • Disarm mode now gives you a chance to block attacks.
  • Not new but important: The chance of knocking someone down with disarm depends on how much stamina they have. (actual disarming is unaffected)
  • Increased the stamina cost of farting based on feedback to 50.
  • If you don't like these changes complain to your fellow players and then post on the forums about it.

Thursday, May 1st, 2014

Keelin updated
  • Stamina system. Yes this will definitely upset some people and make others happy.
  • Nothing is set in stone - things can and will change and if you have worries or complaints feel free to put them on the forums.
  • It's a bit too much to explain in the changelog but this is meant to get rid of some of the RNG in combat as well as provide a new resource to work with.
  • Yes that means that most objects don't have a random knockout chance anymore - instead things damage stamina and you get knocked out when you run out of it.
  • Farting costs 6 stamina. I just wanted to say that here.

  • Why was the 'soundscape' even a thing? RIP constant annoying background hum I guess.
  • Fiddled with mentor messages a bit, let me know if I broke anything.
  • Added an engine-related suicide!

Dr. Cogwerks
  • With the lower pressure reservoirs removed it was trivially easy to hit the max effects tier for Pro Burnz engineering (800kW+)
  • Engine output tiers have been rebalanced with a sweet spot around one megawatt, tiered effects cap raised to 2MW - more planned up here soon
  • This will make lower output a bit less satisfying maybe but try experimenting with plasma and pump settings
  • In some configurations you will want slow feeds of certain gases and maybe a rapid OR slow steady release of excessive pressure from the purge line

Monday, March 4th, 2013

Dr. Cogwerks
  • GRAFT UPDATE: added cash registers to a lot more places, including HoP desk and the brig if you wanna charge bail or something
  • Charging for services is entirely up to you, it may cause you to get beat up but it might be fun too idk
  • Ongoing content expansion for the expedition areas, rewards and lore and hazards will keep growing out there
  • Modified the SMES and APCs out in the expedition areas and prison station so they'll behave better with furnaces hopefully
  • Check out the new Helmet Cam in Telescience! You can view it from the telesci cam viewer or the televisions in RD, Crew Quarters and Bar.
  • Gave the detective a standard portable camera viewer like the HoS has, maybe it'll be useful for spying on jerks or something
  • Removed the lower set of engine pressure reservoir tanks for now to see what happens. Expect the engine to behave more erratically, oh boy
  • It should be less likely to get those awful pressure inversion problems, and it'll be easier to purge the gas lines when needed
  • Restricted the pod hangar to engine/miner access only because too many people were being mean, deal with it
  • Added more air pumps and heaters around the station, more cable coils and diskette boxes, etc. etc.
  • More updates and fixes and stuff will keep happening for awhile, thanks for all the bug reports and comments so far
  • Toggle Deadchat Range is a verb that makes you not hear the living if they aren't, you know, actually nearby.
  • Apparently some folks don't like having the chat window spammed by every doofus in the game blathering about nonsense??

Saturday, March 2nd, 2013

I Said No
  • You can now use a multitool or t-ray scanner on a grille to see if it's electrified or not without zapping yourself.
  • Changelings can now tear down a grille in one hit if they have harm intent enabled. This is kind of a dead giveaway though.

Friday, March 1st, 2013

Dr. Cogwerks
  • Welcome to the new station!
  • A very helpful robot named Murray would just love to show you around, he may be waiting in arrivals? unless he is already giving a tour
   Aphtonites, MagicMountain, Keelin, and AngriestIBM ! 

and also all the other admins and players who have helped with beta testing and map design feedback over the last six months! you guys rule

February 2013

Tuesday, February 19th, 2013

Dr. Cogwerks
  • Way to go, team! Thanks to everyone being awful, enjoy not having omega slurrypod zombies anymore.
  • Why on earth was that even possible in the first place, zombies are dumb as hell and everyone is terrible
  • Why are zombies even still in the code at all
  • oh uh I also changed syndicate sauce awhile ago hoping people would quietly find out but nobody did
  • so give that a try next time you're a traitor chef maybe, it should be a lot better now

Sunday, February 17th, 2013

  • Changed the Wizard spellbook a bit - you can now hit the ? symbol next to spells to view what they do before you buy them. You can also no longer waste points by buying a spell you already have.

Saturday, February 16th, 2013

  • When changelings use stings, spit or scream, they will now get a placeholder like wizard spells do so their abilities menu doesn't shift around.
  • Couple of new mutations for hydro plants. Also, radweeds will now visibly pulse when emitting radiation.

Wednesday, February 13th, 2013

  • Satchels can now be used directly on harvest-ready plants to harvest them directly into the satchel. Any overflow will end up on the floor like usual.
  • Satchels can now be used on the PlantMaster and Reagent Extractor to load items from the satchel into the machine.

Tuesday, February 12th, 2013

  • The Helpful Hydroponics Handbook has been completed. Hopefully that'll make the new hydrostuff a bit clearer.

Monday, February 11th, 2013

  • Added confirm dialogs/cancel options to some changeling powers (Regen/Speed Regen/Transform/Lesser Transfer), because sometimes you DON'T want to explode into a writhing mass of tentacles in a crowd armed with laser guns.

Sunday, February 10th, 2013

  • Added a new machine to Hydroponics - the PlantMaster, used for seed extracting, splicing and infusing.
  • The Seed Extractor and Plant Gene Manipulator went to hell and died forever.
  • Hydroponics equipment comes from a vending machine rather than lockers now.
  • The starting health of new plants is now affected by a few different things. Bad endurance will cause the plant to have less health, and single-harvest plants gain or lose bonus health from the harvests gene. Damaged seeds also take health from a new plant. Plants will never start with less than 1 health and die instantly though.
  • Made a whole shitload of changes to the hydroponics under-the-hood stuff. Report bugs, as always.

Monday, February 4th, 2013

  • The RD sold his bomb to impulse buy a new pet.
  • Also !!Clarks!! made versions of prox-radio and prox-igniter assembly sprites that don't look like they're from 2004.

Infinite Monkeys
  • Replaced the Quartermasters' shuttles with crates being launched through space via mass driver.

Sunday, January 27th, 2013

  • Those little cash register things in the marketplace use your bank account instead of cash now.
  • If you still want to use cash...just toss some space cash over the table, you goof.
I Said No

Wednesday, January 23rd, 2013

Infinite Monkeys
  • Individual body parts don't have damage limits any more because it was Really Dumb.
Dr. Cogwerks
  • Set up some new handling for electrocution re: grilles and cables.

  • BEWARE OF ARC FLASH. Safety first!

Friday, January 18th, 2013

Infinite Monkeys
  • Rewrote mentorhelps, hopefully they should be less buggy and awful now. If they are broken or buggy let me know.
  • Added proxy/igniter/beaker and radio/igniter/beaker assemblies.
  • Chemical smoke now carries 3 reagents.

Wednesday, January 16th, 2013

  • Included with the disks was a really nice set of pens carved from the bones of Medtrak 4's development team.

Monday, January 14th, 2013

  • AI/cyborg door shortcuts. Ctrl-click opens/closes an airlock, shift-click bolts/unbolts it. Considering a change to make all keys and mouse buttons electrify doors indefinitely.
  • A large number of small changes and bugfixes over four years, considering I haven't personally updated this before.

Wednesday, January 9th, 2013

  • The station IT department has upgraded security consoles to Secmate 7, primarily because the back of the box promised that everyone responsible for Secmate 6 had been fired into a star.

Tuesday, January 8th, 2013

Dr. Cogwerks
  • Trick cigs (syndicools) can now be ignited by fire, sparks and explosions
  • Actually all cigs can spontaneously ignite now. You can probably use this for mischief?
  • Also I don't think cigs were properly causing fires when thrown into flammable stuff, so that should work now.

Monday, January 7th, 2013

Dr. Cogwerks
  • Changed the available traitor weapons for spymode significantly. No more emags for spies.
  • The remaining gear they can order is all stuff that feels spy-ish.
  • Botanist traitors can now order the traitor fog machine. ~420 every day~
Dr. Singh
  • AIs can edit the arrival alert message. Roleplay it!

Sunday, January 6th, 2013

I Said No
  • Seed Fabricators can be set to filter available products by category.
  • The Reagent Extractor now works instantly.
  • Added an option when using a satchel on a disposal chute to empty the contents into the chute rather than put the satchel itself in.

Friday, January 4th, 2013

Dr. Cogwerks
  • Added a short little GETTING STARTED guide to ThinkDos, use the Help command on a computer to see it.
  • Also added a new software disk vending machine near Tech Storage (that dingy room below QM).
  • edit: oh no two updates collided, check out AngriestIBM's new "help basics1" "help basics2" and "help basics3" commands on DWAINE

Tuesday, January 1st, 2013

December 2012

Sunday, December 30th, 2012

I Said No
  • Hydroponics backend tweaked again. Man what is with me tweaking all these back ends! *giggle
  • Seed Vendor may work a bit differently but function the same as usual. Report bugs of course.
  • Added a new guidebook in Hydroponics on how to do good at Hydroponics. It isn't finished yet though since i'm not done messing with Hydro.
  • Added some new types of nutrient formulas for plants that do various things. What they do is covered in the aforementioned book. Hydro starts with two bottles of each and can mix more if they figure out the recipes.
  • Added some new mutant gene strains for Hydro crops. These are "general" mutations that affect certain things and can be passed between plant species when splicing seeds.
  • The Seed Extractor now works instantly rather than making you wait.
  • Lemons no longer produce Lime seeds. Not that anyone noticed. Or cared.

Thursday, December 27th, 2012

I Said No
  • Hydroponics backend tweaked slightly. Plants with mutations now use only Endurance and Potency genes for their requirements.
  • Took the requirements completley off certain mutations. It's back to the old 8% chance rule for one mutation type per plant.

Sunday, December 23rd, 2012

  • Sadly, the shuttle containing this shift's technical and medical assistants crashed. Into the moon. Forever.
  • To compensate, staff assistants have been granted the same access as their fallen technical comrades.
I Said No
  • Artifacts have been updated and now work much, much differently. Artifact Lab is totally different. The old Artifact Lab got turned into more space for Tox Lab.
  • Handheld artifacts now exist in addition to large object artifacts.
  • Wizards now corrupt terrain faster. The Staff of Cthulhu's corruption time reducing factor has also been significantly increased.

Thursday, December 20th, 2012

I Said No
  • Mutation variants in Hydroponics now work differently - genes have to be in a paticular configuration for the mutation to have a chance of appearing. The requirements and appearance chance for each mutation are all different, too. Happy hunting!
  • Hydroponics trays now start the game movable, and may be locked/unlocked with a screwdriver.
  • Hydroponics backend code has been tweaked around significantly. Please report bugs to I Said No.

Monday, December 17th, 2012

Sunday, December 9th, 2012

Dr. Singh
  • The telescience computer has a circuitboard in tech storage and the pad can be scanned by electricians.
  • Light fixtures can be removed from the wall with a screwdriver if they're unpowered and there's no lamp or bulb. Or, make a new fixture from a stack of metal. Then you can use the fixture parts to build a light somewhere else, whoa!
  • Late traitor rate reduced, HoS and security are no longer able to be late traitors.

Thursday, December 6th, 2012

Dr. Singh
  • Made the interrogation room larger and added a small back room for to security to safely transport inmates for questioning.
  • Changelings can no longer absorb a corpse multiple times.

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

Dr. Cogwerks
  • Added a bunch of new chems, oh no
  • Antihistamine: stoxin + diethylamine + ethanol * heat
  • Itching Powder - pretty simple recipe
  • Histamine - cannot be mixed
  • Crank - 4 things + fuel * heat
  • Krokodil - 2 medical drugs + 3 other things * heat
  • Bath Salts - 7 reagents * heat
  • CAT DRUGS - 2 botany things, 1 other thing + fuel * heat
  • gross thing: urine + water * heat = ammonia (precursor to most of the others here)

  • Energy swords now have sound effects, thanks to MollyMillions.
  • So do toy swords, wow!

November 2012

Wednesday, November 28th, 2012

  • The new plant seeds weren't showing up because I accidentally added them to the wrong seed vendor in the code.
  • Because there are two functionally identical but separate seed vendors defined.
  • Maybe by hitler.
  • Maybe I'm going to kill myself.

Tuesday, November 27th, 2012

  • Updated ABCU markers. You can now create blueprints for exact copies of rooms at a slightly higher cost. These can not be saved."

Saturday, November 24th, 2012

October 2012

Monday, October 29th, 2012

  • Halloween fun time!
  • time!!

Saturday, October 20th, 2012

  • Okay so MollyMillions made this ogg that plays when you cease being knocked out.
  • That's kinda neat I guess.
  • It's all "beep beep boop" and EKG-y and stuff.
  • I'm padding this out to try to draw attention away from us forgetting to update the changelog for a month.

September 2012

Saturday, September 29th, 2012

  • Added virtual wizard & syndicate kits to VR Gun Sim. Practice traitoring safely!

Friday, September 28th, 2012

  • Added tough competition for the station chefs.

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

  • Added Cogwerks' new janitor traitor item idea: A compactor trash cart. Looks identical to the regular one, but may cause people placed inside to become rather small and angular.
  • Reminder on how to put people inside a cart/bin/crate: Move cart over lying person. Close cart.

Monday, September 17th, 2012


Sunday, September 16th, 2012

  • The kitchen/bar is now south of botany and west of crew quarters. The old bar is now a storage warehouse.

August 2012

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

  • Quartermasters can buy paint cans. I hope this alleviates your paint-related concerns.
  • Please don't paint everything in the game and make the client choke rendering a million pink toolboxes or I will be VERY SAD.

Saturday, August 18th, 2012

  • I should probably clarify that spies can: implant anybody since security implants are no longer A Thing (Even other leaders! whoa!) and that these are super mindslaves that do not wear off after time passes.
  • Implantees should be able to refer to their notes (Not the PDA one, the verb one) to see who their boss is. I guess.
  • Also plant pots are secured/unsecured with a wrench now. What a crucial change!

Wednesday, August 15th, 2012

  • There is a conspiracy/spy mode in beta. Competing syndicate infiltrators with mindslaves are fighting a shadow war for a promotion.
  • Wonton wrappers! Put an egg and some flour in the mixer and stuff the resulting wrappers with small foods. And then fry them.

Saturday, August 11th, 2012

  • Derringer Pistol traitor item. Can be hidden in clothes.

Monday, August 6th, 2012

  • Sponges for the janitor. idk
  • Light other people's cigarettes using a zippo!
  • Headgear should show up on examine!!
  • The Dark Knight Rises was kinda good, but not really!!!

  • Replaced the legitamately useless heavy armor in the armory locker with an EOD suit/helmet.

Thursday, August 2nd, 2012

  • While gloves don't leave fingerprints, they DO leave other signs for the detective to scan :O (Well actually you get distorted prints from latex gloves)
  • Chef has a sous-chef uniform available in the kitchen dispenser I guess. Recruit an assistant?

July 2012

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

  • Nuclear engines added. (BETA)
  • Airbridge added

Tuesday, July 31st, 2012

Infinite Monkeys

Saturday, July 28th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • Chemistry stuff:
  • Stabilising agent that can make some previously instant reactions produce a stable-ish product.
  • Thalmerite has two chemicals that affect its heating speed.
  • Foaming agent removed - reactions that formerly used it now use fluorosurfactant.

Thursday, July 26th, 2012

  • Giving the chef a deep fryer cannot possibly backfire. CANNOT POSSIBLY BACKFIRE.
  • Oh and I guess botany wanted one of those crate telepad gizmos.

Tuesday, July 10th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • Late join traitors attempt two.

Saturday, July 7th, 2012

  • Syndicate Shuttle is no longer on same Z-level as the station.
  • The syndicate teleporter can be activated with a syndicate teleporter remote in order to exit and go back to the syndicate shuttle.

Thursday, July 5th, 2012

I Said No
  • Dropped manufacturing costs of mining equipment a bit.
  • Engineering Spacesuits no longer make you go any slower than a regular space suit does.

Monday, July 2nd, 2012

I Said No
  • The Mining Outpost now has an APC and light switch for each of its seperate areas. There are also rods and hand labellers available.
  • The Mining Manufacturer now makes rods and metal sheets.
  • Extractor Rigs now drill much faster, and show the correct amount of ore in the hopper. (It was always off by 2 until now.)
  • There are now display screens on the Mining Outpost that show how much ore has been dug up.
  • Replicants have been disabled for the time being. They'll be back later.

June 2012

Friday, June 29th, 2012

I Said No
  • Rotating a window will now prompt you which direction you want to rotate it in. Examining the window will also tell you it's current fastened status.
  • Tidied up the job selection menu a little.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • Added a 'mentorhelp' command for asking gameplay-related questions - round spoiling questions and things like that are fine. Currently admins and dead HOSes can read/reply to the channel.

Wednesday, June 27th, 2012

I Said No
  • Sturdy and Heavy cyborg Heads and Arms are now available. Use two metal on a regular part to make it sturdy, and two reinforced metal on a sturdy part to make it heavy. These parts can take more damage, but are heavy and will slow the Cyborg down a bit. Heavy moreso than Sturdy.
  • Cyborgs should now be able to suicide.
  • The bug that let you share reagents with yourself is fixed. Come on, that doesn't even make sense. =I

Tuesday, June 26th, 2012

I Said No
  • You can now pour your reagent container (beakers, bottles, etc) into someone else's while they are holding it. They need to hold it in their active hand, and both parties need to have Help intent selected.
  • This also works for cyborgs - the Cyborg needs to have Help intent selected, and has the beaker equipped in a slot and selected. (The square it's in needs to be highlighted in green, basically.)

Monday, June 25th, 2012

I Said No
  • Cyborgs now have their old appearance sets back. What's more, they can be customised at Docking Stations! (But no self-customisation. You need someone to help you!)
  • Construction Cyborgs now have floor tiles instead of metal sheets.
  • Engineering Cyborgs now have the Atmospherics Transporter that Atmos Cyborgs used to have.
  • Chemistry Cyborgs have their own internal ChemMaster unit now, and cannot use the regular ChemMaster. In addition, using the Chemistry Dispenser is slightly different for them and doesn't involve inserting the beaker.

Sunday, June 24th, 2012

I Said No
  • Enabled the new-type cyborgs as a test. Some stuff may be substantially different!
  • Cyborg construction for new-type cyborgs is a bit different. The brain goes in the head piece before attaching, you use a wrench on the frame once it's complete to activate the new cyborg.
  • After you've opened a Cyborg (crowbar) and exposed it's wires (screwdriver), use robot parts on it to attach new parts, or a wrench to remove existing ones.
  • Treads are now available as a cyborg component. They occupy both leg slots - they boost speed a bit but drain power from the cyborg's cell.
  • New type Cyborgs may get a free upgrade depending on which module they pick at the start. Mining Borgs also have the option to teleport to the mining station.
  • Cyborgs may be repainted and redecorated from docking stations. They look a bit plainer than they used to for the moment but that'll be fixed if this all pans out.

Saturday, June 23rd, 2012

I Said No
  • Cyborg construction process is now slightly different. Heads no longer need flashes, and parts already on the frame can be wrenched off if needed. Cells and wires in the chest piece can also be removed with wrenches and wirecutters, respectively.
  • Atmos and Vendor borg modules were discontinued due to being borderline useless.
  • Substantial background changes to a whole ton of cyborg shit. Report any bugs, please!

Tuesday, June 19th, 2012

  • You can make cakes with virtually any food item now, and you can use icing tubes to decorate them with icing.

Sunday, June 17th, 2012

I Said No
  • Added the Motor Oil reagent. Splashed on cyborgs, it will make them move faster and use less power for a short while. Roboticists start with an oil can - more can be mixed if you know the recipe. Experiment and find it!
  • A new oil can sprite courtesy of Clarks! Splashed oil now also stains the floor. Technically this was put in on tuesday and not sunday but eh sod it.

Saturday, June 16th, 2012

I Said No
  • Plasma Cutter has been replaced by Concussive Gloves. They allow you to mine asteroids by punching them with your bare hands.
  • Power Hammer was buffed a bit. It now shatters nearby weak tiles in addition to digging.
  • Mining Charges have become Concussive Charges. They work only slightly differently to what they did before.

Thursday, June 14th, 2012

I Said No
  • Cyborg Recharging Stations are now Cyborg Docking Stations. In addition to recharging cells, they can perform repairs, rename cyborgs, and handle the installation/swapping of various cyborg components.
  • Docking Stations accept power cells, upgrades, modules, cable coil and welding fuel. You can also help Cyborgs climb in by click-dragging them onto the station.
  • Robotics Research is gone. It'll be back later in some form. For now, Roboticists can make all robotics items right off the bat. Resources is the only limitation.
  • Cyborgs now start in Robotics rather than AI Upload.
  • Updated a bunch of backend stuff for Cyborgs. Report any bugs, please!
  • Gave miners their miner bots and drill rigs back. Sorry about that!

Monday, June 11th, 2012

  • Added a box of latex gloves to medbay. Made fingerprints left by latex gloves a little more confusing. I'm still working on detective stuff I promise!!!
  • Click on a door with a T-ray scanner to see if it's powered, unpowered or electrified!
  • The T-ray scanner can also be used to measure how much power is being sent through a cable. This was actually a thing multitools did before, but scanners don't get enough love. :(

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

  • Virtually any food can be a topping for pizza now
  • Added Amusing Duck and a dog named George. RIP george you were a good dog. (big thanks to Cogwerks for the sprites)

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

I Said No
  • Redesigned the mining outpost to be a bit more spacious and functional. Also redesigned something else, see if you can find out what.
  • There are now a max of six miners and four botanists.

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

  • Added a cookbook and new appliance to the kitchen

Sunday, June 3rd, 2012

I Said No
  • Sheets of Metal and Glass as well as Metal Rods now all stack to 50. Floor tiles now stack to 80.
  • All of the items mentioned above can now be drag-dropped onto each other to quickly gather nearby items into one stack.
  • Welding rods to get metal and using metal to build tiles and rods now prompt how many you want to make a stack of.

Saturday, June 2nd, 2012

  • Mouseover people to see their assignments on their id cards.
  • Redid how voice changers were handled in the code making them more robust.

Friday, June 1st, 2012

Dr. Singh
  • Starlight removed, it looked cool but caused too many problems behind the scenes that I haven't been able to fix.

May 2012

Thursday, May 31st, 2012

I Said No
  • Particular random events now occur based on how long the round has been running. Spatial Tears, Kudzu, Solar Flares and Ion Storms can occur right from the start. Wormholes, blobs, radiation, viruses and meteors will only occur after 40 minutes have passed. Black Holes and Blowouts occur only after 80 minutes have passed.
  • Blowouts are back in the rotation, as you might have guessed. They no longer blow up all the lights on the station, too.
  • Meteor random events will now strike from one direction rather than swarming in from all sides. You also get three minutes to prepare before the meteors arrive. Meteor Storms after the 80 minute mark will be far worse than those before it.
  • Meteor Shield Generators are now available in emergency storage. You can also turn lattices into anti-meteor barricades by using rods on them. Weld barricades to dissassemble them,

Tuesday, May 29th, 2012

  • So um, you know how the mulebot didn't actually have any delivery locations set up? That's fixed now. I FORGOT OKAY THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS TO PUT IN A MAP

Monday, May 28th, 2012

  • Beds now have a "sleep in" verb. If you lay down and use sleep in them! And you can press the laying/standing toggle button to..wake up! Whoa!

Sunday, May 27th, 2012

I Said No
  • Miners now start with three extractor rigs and two extra crates of furnace fuel.
  • Metal, Glass and Rods stacks will now give messages when adding to or otherwise manipulating them.

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • You can now click the inventory button with an equippable item in your active hand to equip it. If you have an item equipped in that slot it'll be put in your active hand.

Tuesday, May 22nd, 2012

AngriestIBM & Supernorn
  • Implemented Supernorn's cool new hud!! whoa!!
  • Primer: Intents selection is now done by clicking the appropriate square of the intent panel.
  • Drop is the half-tile below throw (To the right of hands)
  • Active hand selected by clicking the appropriate hand slot.
  • Most alerts, like extreme cold, now only show up when there actually is an alert.
  • Also the inventory can now be hidden. Belt, pockets, and backpack are always visible, however.
  • Nonhuman mob HUDS are probably broken as fuck right now.

Monday, May 21st, 2012

  • Thanks to a generous donation from the Change the Brig Slightly Foundation, the brig has been changed. Slightly.
  • Also implant locks are just gone in general now.
  • Cyborgs can use the goofy PageUp switchhands hotkey now too! Switch through your active modules!!

Sunday, May 20th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • More suicide methods.

Friday, May 11th, 2012

  • Made emergency suits less shitty (but still quite shitty!) and made them more orange instead of salmon. Also changed their in-world icons so the suit and helmet don't look like a mob standing there

Thursday, May 10th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • Added a bunch more crew objectives and enabled the system. AngriestIBM did all the hard work coding the framework so thank him!

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

  • Unfortunately, the recent oxygen garden renovation attracted a family of bears. As the resulting enactment of NanoTrasen bear-elimination protocols resulted in the garden's complete atomization, the bar and kitchen have been relocated to the new space. A new crew area has been installed in their former location.

Tuesday, May 8th, 2012

  • Okay, let's try this again! Now scientists have access to chemistry and chemistry has been returned to the research sector.
I Said No

  • NanoTrasen Medical reminds all personnel not to overdose on medicine and stimulants.
  • Crew quarters has been replaced with a much more eco-friendly oxygen garden.

  • Vampires can now create thralls for 300 blood.
I Said No
  • Mixed Mode: Chaplains should no longer be selected to be a Vampire. They should be assigned Traitor or Changeling instead if this occurs. Report any instances of Vampire Chaplains, thanks.

  • Lots of vampire changes, still a work in progress, feedback would be appreciated in the suggestions thread. Changes:
  • Disease Touch is back to being deadly, but is non-contagious. Use it to kill important personnel I guess?
  • Blood count now displayed in the Status menu.
  • Cloak of Darkness and Mist Form should work properly now.
  • Blood draining requires one click and continues until interrupted. It also has a chance to stun/KO.
  • Other misc changes to cooldowns, blood costs, etc.
I Said No
  • New item: Mechanised Boots. Industrial Armor no longer confers a speed boost - the boots do that now.
  • Geological Scanners now show different decals for different things. Some things share decals, so it is still wise to check before you dig.
  • Abandoned Loot Crates can sometimes be dug up via mining. Don't ask how they got buried in solid rock.
  • Changed the Power Hammer. It can be now used mostly like a regular mining tool (pick, etc), took out that stupid "useless collapse" thing.
  • Fabricator Item Lists can now be filtered by category. The option is down the bottom. Also you can now eject ore even while it's busy building something.
  • Ore Extractor Upgrades now fit on mining belts.
  • Fibrilith and Miracle Matter are now properly loaded from using a satchel on the Fabricator by hand.
  • You can now click-drag ore and produce into crates to load them in rapidly, provided the crate isn't locked.
  • Jumpsuits and shoes from Fabricators. Woah.
  • Electricians can no longer have a suit of industrial armor as a traitor item.

Thursday, May 3rd, 2012

  • Latex gloves now obfuscate fingerprints instead of completely hiding them.
  • The maximum number of fingerprints on any given object has been increased from 3 to 6.
  • Added an experimental 64x64 icon mode, check under the Icons tab near File.
I Said No
  • Satchels now come with visible meters to show how full they are.
  • Large Ore Satchels can be built at Mining Fabricators, from 25 fabric and 3 Bohrum. They hold 75 ore each.
  • Power Hammers will shatter weak rock formations within a small range of the tile you strike.
  • Mining and Robotics Fabricators start with 20 of each basic ore pre-loaded. No more scavenging for cables and such.
  • Fibrilith and Miracle Matter can now be loaded into a fabricator via click-dragging, same as normal ores.
  • Diseased Touch/Grave Fever no longer stuns, and does less toxic damage.

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

  • Apparently flash powder's recipe was critically immersion breaking, and as such it now also uses chlorine.
  • Also avoid purple beams. Trust me on this.

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

I Said No
  • Extractor rigs now come with an inbuilt GPS for locating them.
  • Miners now start with three satchels and three light mining charges each.
  • Explosions will now weaken and crack most asteroid tiles that they didn't destroy outright.
  • Mining belts should now be able to store mining PDAs, as intended. Rock worms are no longer on a diet.
  • The beds in the brig can no longer be used for buckling.
  • Added a furnace room on the main station for an emergency power supply.

Tuesday, May 1st, 2012

I Said No

April 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • New arrivals can spawn as traitors in certain situations.
  • Non-antagonists with security implants can no longer use cloaks. Traitors who manage to obtain a sec implant can.
I Said No
  • Reworked a bunch of background stuff for mining. Report bugs if any come up.
  • Small asteroids now have a chance to be made of solid mineral, containing hundreds of units of ore. You can't dig them with regular tools.
  • Miners can now create and set up extractor rigs near said asteroids. They will gradually extract ore from them over time.
  • Upgrades can be made for said rigs that expand their capacity, increase their drilling speed, and give them a teleporter.
  • You can click-drag a crate onto the rig to empty all ore from it into the crate, or you can smack the rig with a satchel to fill the satchel up.
  • Rigs will also send messages to miner PDAs if something occurs. PDAs can be put on mining belts now, too.
  • Moved the cargo pad in Mining closer to the fabricator.
  • Miners now ACTUALLY have their double mining speed and weird tile warnings perk. It wasn't in effect before because apparently the Chaplain had it instead.
  • Plasmastone is actually useful for something now. Holy SHIT
Dr. Singh
  • Changed the middle click shortcut to just swap hands. Apologies to anyone who liked it but it breaks too many things that were built around the whole active/offhand idea and just feels awkward and wrong.

Friday, April 27th, 2012

I Said No
  • The Request Console at QM and commercial vending machines now accept ID cards. They use money straight from your bank account so now you don't have to screw around with cash and ATMs.
  • Grones Soda now has the flavor in the description rather than the name. The gigantic entry on the vending machine page was bugging me.

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

I Said No
  • Three new traders for QMs to interact with. One of them is a randomised generic trader.
  • You can now haggle with traders. Hit haggle, type in the new price you think you should pay per unit, and the trader will meet you somewhere halfway. Don't try to rip them off or push it too far, though!
  • Rolled all the fruit/veg/herb commodities in the Shipping Market into a single category rather than having them all be individually priced.
  • Couple of new commodities. Meat, Robot Parts, Glass, Metal. Maybe some others I forgot.
  • You can now select the amount of items you want when a trader is selling to the station.
Dr. Singh
  • Middle click now uses your offhand. Thanks MyBlueCorners for putting in the effort on this one. Cue complaints from people with laptops and cheap mice in 3... 2...
  • Control click is now pull. Yep. It's finally the future.
  • Added one of those top left corner action buttons to turn your tank valve on and off. You'll still have to adjust the pressure the old fashioned way.

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

I Said No
  • Automatic Mining Bots are now craftable. Hard Hat > Prox Sensor > Robot Arm > Pickaxe or Drill. Mining station starts with two of them.

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012

  • You can now examine stuff by holding down alt and clicking on it. For real this time though.
  • Local Air Monitors have taken a vow of silence, forever
I Said No
  • Mucked around with a ton of background shit. Be sure to report bugs.
  • New gamemode: Mixed. It's not in the rotation yet because it still needs some live testing.
  • Predators can now force unbolted doors open with their bare hands.
  • Added a cell charger to the mining outpost, since they can make cells now.
  • Furnace fuel now lasts longer.
  • Traders will now periodically contact the station with offers. It is the responsibility of the Quartermasters to accept or decline, and work out the other various logistics of trading!
  • Thus far there is only one trader. More will be added soon.
  • You can now repair APCs with the amazing power of screwdrivers, cabling, multitools, and wrenches. A real toolbox teamup.

Friday, April 20th, 2012

  • Welding masks can be moved out of your eyes so you can see stuff.
  • Replaced the Holy Water bottle sprite with one that's significantly more cooler. (Hempuli you are a boss sorry I didn't do this sooner)
  • Changed the revolver/generic gunshot sound to something meatier and less compressed.
  • Local Air Monitors now produce annoying beeping sounds when there's an atmosphere problem in compliance with Space OSHA standards! Place your bets on when this will be removed!
I Said No
  • Geological Scanners and Power Hammers now work instantly rather than after a delay.
  • Any given tile of ore has a rare chance to carry twice as much ore, and a very rare chance to carry four times as much.
  • Power Hammer cost was changed, and both it and Powered Picks now have more charges.
  • Power Hammers now have a 50% chance to uselessly collapse a seam on multiple weakenings, rather than 95% as before.
  • Mining Manufacturer can now produce power cells and flashlights.
  • New high-end equipment for miners: Mineral Accumulator. Works like a combination between a black hole and a cargo teleporter - will drag all nearby ore to it and teleport it to a cargo pad. Needs a power cell to run.
  • Two new gems! One is Fibrilith - redeemable for 40 fabric at a manufacturer, or sellable. The other one is best left discovered for itself.
  • All Manufacturing Units now have an adjustable speed setting. Can be set to run at double or triple speed. Beware! Doing so consumes a LOT of power from the local APC!
  • Cyborg farts have new text to distinguish them from human farts.

Saturday, April 14th, 2012

I Said No
  • Did some background work on new jumpsuits you may see one day soon!

  • Fuck stungloves.

  • Cost was reduced for the armor. You also manufacture both pieces at once, rather than individually.
  • Space suits are also now manufactured as a helmet/suit set, too.

Wednesday, April 11th, 2012

Dr. Singh
  • Fixed that explosion bug I caused. Sorry about that. About fixing it, I mean.
  • The stars now produce light as intended. Ambient lighting from exterior windows and/or gaping holes. No more sticky darkness (hopefully).
  • Changed explosion processing to guarantee that nobody can outrun the blast radius due to lag.
  • Improved the chance for an electric chair's non-lethal setting to de-rev.
  • You can now quick-stack some items by holding one in your hand and dragging another onto it from the floor. Currently works for sheets of glass and metal, rods, floor tiles and wire coils.

Tuesday, April 10th, 2012

I Said No
  • Mining speed cut in half universally. On top of this, miners dig twice as fast as everyone else.
  • As an added bonus, Miners start with powered picks instead of regular ones.
  • Plant Pots in Hydroponics now consume half as much water as before.
Dr. Singh
  • Why could electricians build Syndicate gear anyway? If Nanotrasen could just make that stuff security would have cloaks in their lockers.
  • Electricians can no longer scan traitor gear. They can scan a few more things around the station to make up for the lack. Please let me know if you notice anything electricians can't scan that they should.
  • New traitor item added for electricians: A fancy Syndicate scanner that can scan traitor gear.
  • E-mag cost upped from 3 to 5 since they do everything and are really really good. Radio jammers reduced from 5 to 3 because they should be used more, especially now th--BLARGH
  • E-magging a cyborg no longer unlocks the interface, instead it fries the cyborg's connection to the Laws database. It doesn't compel the borg to help you or anyone. It just removes all laws.
  • Added confirmation popup to 'State All Laws' so AIs will be less inclined to reveal things they shouldn't.

Sunday, April 8th, 2012

  • Three words: Easter. Egg. Hunt.

Sunday, April 1st, 2012

Friday, March 30th, 2012

  • The new electronics update requires 2x buzzers, 4x diodes, and 5x fuck mport's awful code.
  • Also I renamed the electronics data disks to modules so they don't get confused with actual data disks. Do they have any utility beyond plugging into scanners to give you a list? Maybe I should just replace them with a printout of the parts needed or something.
Dr. Singh
  • Thanks to Tobba for the updated lighting code. Lighting is now calculated differently, allowing for some neat new tricks.
  • Fixed the party alarm.

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

  • New Thing: Shard Recycler in the bar! It can turn glass shards into cups and plates!!!
  • Sorta New Things: Shot and wine glasses, can be made with the Shard Recycler (see it's not useless)
  • Bar stools! They do nothing oh well
  • Changed the firesuit sprite so it's less neon green and Denis Leary approved

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

Dr. Melon
  • Gone are the days of unstable medical practice: bruise packs and ointment tubes have been replaced with chemical patches!
  • Empty patches have been added to chemistry - use a syringe to fill them.
  • Nicotine patches are available in the cigarette vendors.
  • You can make new patches with the general manufactuer.

Wednesday, March 21st, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • Proximity sensors, and assemblies that use them, should now work.

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I Said No
  • More wizard mode changes:
  • Wizards start without their robes. They can now retrieve them from the wardrobes - they have a choice of three different styles now.
  • New selectable Wizard thing: Staff of Cthulhu. Makes corruption ritual faster, hits harder than a normal staff and will horribly shock anyone trying to steal it.
  • Arrival, Escape and Supply Shuttles, as well as the Solar Panels, no longer count towards the total percentage of corruption.
  • Corruption percentage count should be more accurate now.

Thursday, March 15th, 2012

I Said No
  • Wizard mode changes again:
  • The Chaplain is now the Wizard's natural enemy. He has immunity to all magic and the ability to remove corruption.
  • Wizards are immune to each other's spells as long as they have their outfit and staff equipped.
  • The Chapel is a safe haven - Wizards cannot teleport directly into it or use spells inside. This protection stops at 40% corruption, however.
  • The Corruption now has various effects that get worse as more of the station is corrupted. Wiz and Chaplain are immune to these.
  • At 30% or more corruption, the Wizard will slowly regenerate health while inside.

Wednesday, March 14th, 2012

I Said No
  • You can now select whether you want to hear admin played sounds or not. Look under the Soundscape option.
  • Admins can now optionally announce that they're playing sounds and what the sound filename is, like a DJ or something.

Sunday, March 11th, 2012

I Said No
  • Erebite and Cerenkite power cells can now be manufactured. They regenerate power on their own. Erebite Cells will explode on contact with heat or fire, however.
  • Shaving off a Wizard's beard will cause them to become too ashamed to cast offensive magic for a short while.
  • Couple of new facial hairstyles.

Friday, March 9th, 2012

Dr. Singh
  • Added peanuts and peanut butter. There's also a few secret recipes, uh huh.
  • Fixed a ton of runtime errors and weird bugs and the main background loop slows itself if the server load gets really bad.
  • The bosses found out about that sweet hidden VR room the CE built and made us remove it, OSHA or something I don't know. Supposedly some assistant still has the combat program somewhere.
  • Due to your diligent research and development Nanotrasen is now able to interfere with the science teleporter. It's expensive so they only bothered to jam security.
  • There's a cool trick for robusting you can do thanks to a certain bug fix. What is it? That would be telling.
  • Exploding machinery sprays shrapnel around when it explodes.

Thursday, March 8th, 2012

  • Fucked with the plasma generator so now it's basically just a portable cell charger
  • Fixed critter jumping issue

  • Please report any persisting or new bugs! Thank you!

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

I Said No
  • Wizard rounds now work differently. The wizards will win immediatley if they complete all their objectives - which always consist of killing three specific targets and corrupting 50% of the station.
  • Wizards now start with the spells Clairvoyance and Corruption Ritual. A few more effects were added to Pandemonium.
Infinite Monkeys
  • Revolvers now come with two spare clips, and ordering revolver ammo gives you three AP clips.

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

I Said No
  • Cloaking devices now periodically flash instead of flickering or doing nothing. They were reverted to their original cost also.
  • Wizards now spawn with large, luxurious beards properly befitting their magical station, and their hats actually look like hats now.
  • Added new effects for some spells.

February 2012

Sunday, February 26th, 2012

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

Monday, February 13th, 2012

Infinite Monkeys
  • Added a new traitor item, only purchasable if you have an assassinate objective, which allows you to track IDs registered to your target(s).
  • Buffed the rad crossbow a few days ago but I forgot to update the changelog. Give it a try sometime!

  • Rejoice, DWAINE users! There's a book to teach you all about the new DWAINE in the artifact lab.

Friday, February 10th, 2012

  • Re-added the personnel that we had all missed so dearly, who would always bring a smile to the collective faces of the crew with their lighthearted antics and wonderful jokes.
  • And by that I mean Medical and Technical Assistants! Normal vanilla assistant is now "Staff Assistant."

Monday, February 6th, 2012

Dr. Singh
  • The AI can de-electrify all the airlocks it controls.
  • AI and Cyborgs get an extra popup to confirm shocking doors and turning off engine components.

Wednesday, February 1st, 2012

  • Default location for the research program is /mnt/artlab. There's a readme. You could maybe read it. That would be neat.

January 2012

Friday, January 27th, 2012

  • You should be able to configure Guardbuddies again. Try "cd /mnt/control" (This is the default mount for the tape holding the buddy interface) and then "cat readme"

Wednesday, January 25th, 2012

  • It's a new map holy goddamn. I guess report bugs on the forums?
  • No the new research stuff isn't finished, we're all very sorry ok. The RD has recieved a cookie from the computer company as a token of apology.

  • Electric chairs and electropacks can now derev!
  • Made the changeling DNA points system more transparent yesterday.

Tuesday, January 17th, 2012

  • The "help I can't die" bug where everyone's health stops updating should never happen again.
  • Large swarms of admin created creatures, giant fires, blobs, etc no longer lag horribly. Neither does the unban panel. It's still slow the first time but after that it's smooth.
  • Game ticks now happen at a consistent rate until things start lagging really really bad.

Monday, January 16th, 2012

  • Sikh siropa and turban in the chaplain's closet. Dr. Singh is still not a real sikh, or a real doctor.

  • Oh and pathology is still gone. It will be back eventually. Just felt I should note that somewhere official.

December 2011

  • Changeling reports the number of DNA absorbed at round end
  • Revolution ends with nobody winning after ~50 minutes (please don't metagame with this :[)

  • You know, like how you load a satchel. Pretty much exactly like that.

Saturday, October 1st, 2011

  • Engineering space suits don't slow you down nearly as much anymore, but still more than originally.
  • Mining fabricators now produce engineering space suits and engineering space helmets instead of regular ones.
  • Various typo fixes to go along with your re-rebalancing. Delicious.

Friday, September 30th, 2011

  • QM shipping list altered: More choices, more descriptions, some old crate contents have been changed.
  • The worth of Mauxite, Molitz, and Pharosium as a shipping commodity has been lowered to curb exploits. This will be more meaningful later.
  • Emagging mining explosives now sabotages them so that they blow up in the user's face, rather than unlocking the targets they're usable on.
  • Traitor Miners now get special job-based syndicate items: hacked low and high yield mining explosives. These behave as old emagged mining explosives.
  • Both hacked and emagged mining explosives now have their own added descriptions upon examine, to vaguely reveal that something is different about them.
  • Mind Slave traitor item telecrystal cost has been increased threefold.
  • RIG suits now actually protect against radiation, as in the blowout random event, and nuclear reactors, etc.
  • Engineering space suits are now twice as slow to move around in when walking, and are immensely slower when traveling through space. Examine desc updated to reflect this.

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

  • Traitor roles are now chosen before job roles instead of vice versa. If you are chosen as changeling or traitor, you cannot then be chosen as AI, Cyborg, HoS, or Security, and revheads cannot become those or any head of staff position. However, if you are not chosen as a traitor type, you can now still become one of those jobs. If you want to reliably be chosen for those jobs, simply turn off your "be traitor?" option in preferences for the relevant mode.
  • Clarified some random event AI laws, cleaned up some logical contradictions, fallacies, and loopholes in them as well. Added an excessively wordy new one.
  • Doubled the chance that mining a (?) block will yield uqill or telecrystal as opposed to cytine.
  • Fixed even more game mode checks that weren't accounting for the Head Surgeon position as a head of staff.
  • Fixed teleport beacon exploit that was still allowing players easy entry into syndicate and wizard stations. Thanks to nice, honest players for admitting to this bug after being carefully and politely threatened.
  • Mind implant use is a lot more obvious to admins in logs now.
  • A bunch of additional admin options added for easily spawning human mobs of every job type, both genders.
  • Moving inside of the DNA scanner in genetics will now close the console window if you have it open. You should require a partner in Science if you want to alter your own DNA.
  • Attempting to Mind Slave implant someone who already has a security implant will fail, giving both target and user a failure message.

Tuesday, September 20th, 2011

  • The emergency shuttle in wizard mode will now fail to arrive the first time if called before the 20 minute mark, but will always succeed the second time. This should give the wizard more time to complete his objectives if dealing with a crew of pansy little girly coward spaceboys.
  • Preliminary human NPC class expansion with fairly convincing combat and arrest behavior.
  • Tripping on foam will be slightly less stunning now, in accordance with sanity.
  • Firing a gun from point blank will no longer use up double the ammo/charge.
  • You will now attempt a point blank shot on any intent other than 'help', rather than only on 'harm'.
  • A point blank shot's extra stunning time has been cut in half, since it was previously excessive.

  • Even more cases of crates trapping buckled-in folks, bugging them out, have been eliminated.

Tuesday, September 13th, 2011

  • A message is now displayed when someone is successfully hit by gunshot or other projectile weapons, unless the weapon is silenced.

  • Fixed Flash not displaying blind message properly on its final use upon burning out.
  • Added some warning messages when various items are used if they are empty of necessary reagents.
  • Fixed crates scooping up people who are buckled to beds and chairs, causing buggy problems.
  • Added warning messages when fire damage is applied to people with fire immunity superpower.
  • Cloakers were not properly being decloaked when shot with projectile weapons. Now they are, and there's a visible message too.
  • Even more new and improved logs, warnings, and options to aid Admins in dealing with rule breakers.

Monday, September 5th, 2011

  • Cyborgs/Eyebots can now use ";" to use the radio, like everyone else!
  • Also if your radio mysteriously stops working as an eyebot, try opening the radio panel. That should fix it. I hope.

Sunday, September 4th, 2011

  • Slipping on wet surfaces probably shouldn't stun for half an hour. So now it doesn't.
  • Aliens no longer receive starting message that part of their goal is to kill the AI, since it isn't.
  • Wizards no longer receive objectives to kill other wizards.
  • Nuke mode syndicate radio headsets should always be visible now.
  • Random event AI laws no longer refer to "The Mailroom".
  • Admin-spawned syndicate attack forces come properly equipped, and clothed now.
  • Various continuing additions to admin tools for monitoring and busting potential griefers.

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

  • Nuke mode syndicates now get their own default radio channel accessible with :h. Organized.
  • Revhead sorting wasn't checking if a candidate had already been chosen, resulting in one person filling multiple revhead slots. Fixed.
  • Several checks still weren't taking the newish Head Surgeon position into account as a head of staff. Rectified.
  • Communication intercepts were reporting disabled game modes as possibilities, often 100% confirming the current mode. Remedied.
  • Admin-appointed wizards now work properly in wizard mode for determining round status. Wizardized.

Friday, September 2nd, 2011

  • Monkeys reagent-holding units decreased. No more supermonkeys, CHEMISTS.
  • Human reagent-holding units slightly increased.
  • Ethanol effects tweaked to reflect changes. Feedback appreciated.
  • Pro Puffs now much more useful to the average crewmember!
  • Fingerprints are added whenever you deactivate/reactivate security cameras.
  • Stop whining about the rad-crossbow 'nerf,' the crossbow owns now ok

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

  • Brig timers can now be examined to show time remaining, if any.

  • Fixed up a bug while moving and pulling items
  • Fixed typo in airlock code
  • Added power-drain variables to APCs in the mapmaker. This lets the mapmaker cause artificial power drain in each room.
  • PowerCells are now of custom-capacity (set in mapmaker)
  • PowerCells with storage greater than 2500 units now count as high capacity (was 1000)
  • Because of the above changes, removed the artificial "powersink" object from the game
  • Fixed exception error thrown when cameras stop existing
  • The AI camera no longer resets when using computers
  • Added the Black Firesuit and Heavy Armor to the code so they can be used in the map

  • Emptying Pockets before game start caused a server error; no longer the case
  • The FLOWRATE global constant has been changed to 0.99. This should speed up gaseous flow in pipes (and therefore make the engine run smoother) but may have big unforseen consequences. Keep eyes open for bugs.
  • Fixed engine z-level definition preventing it from ejecting
  • Access_Medical_Records permission has been set appropriately (nobody could do it before)
  • There are now 3 atmos techs and 3 station techs instead of 5 and 1
  • CO2 now does 50 damage per second, and it takes 5 seconds to knock you out (instead of just being an insta-kill)
  • Added beer to the game, complete with HARM and HURT effects (when clicking on both yourself and others). It'll need some tweaking in the damage-dishing department before it becomes a common fixture on maps (it's a bit too powerful right now)
  • Admins can now manually authorize pubbies to enter the game (and to make them monkeys)
  • The traitor's radio is now hidden inside a normal radio device, so that you cannot figure out who the traitor is just by looking at his inventory.
  • Camera view now allows you to read papers one square away (AI and security terminals)
  • Camera view can papers more than one square away in a garbled state (similar to monkey reading)
  • Camera view can not see papers in people's hands, however, people can now hold papers up to the cameras (by clicking on them) which pops up a window on the AI's screen

  • The AI is now notified if Oxygen or FireAlarms are tripped.
  • Monkeyizing sometimes threw an exception error - now fixed.
  • Fixed bug that stopped DNA_ADD to work correctly (it tried to add the data to the other disk)

  • Added the most recent map changes to the SVN.

Thursday, June 19th 2008 (Revision 172):

  • Airlock access bug fixed
  • Added chapel_office and tech_storage access levels
  • Added the Chaplain job title
  • Made the working skin the default skin
  • Fixed bug where clicking on the belt slot without an active item would cause an error
  • Added Beer to the game (icons/items only at this time, no effects)
  • Fixed bug where emags weren't working properly on doors
  • Made doors not openable before the round starts
  • emags now have a higher priority, so if you have access to a locker the emag will still fry it
  • Fixed windoor and airlock display where running into it multiple times would restart the animation
  • Secured closets are no longer anchorable (you can push them now)
  • Teleporter now reports the area name instead of X/Y/Z coordinates

  • The nuke in Blob mode is now bigger
  • Fixed a bug that prevented security closets from verifying access levels
  • Walking through girders is no longer allowed; you still build them directly under you though so watch out which way you step off.
  • Hitting an AI computer with an item caused an exception error. It now behaves in a sane fashion (only checks for modules).
  • Communications intercepts now print in any location (previous patch made it only print in the 'bridge' area)
  • Communications computers now have a prints_intercept attribute which can be set to OFF in the map editor
  • The SWAT helmet no longer hides your face, and is now organized into a more logical class
  • Stun baton stun time is now 5-20 seconds (instead of 20-60 seconds)

Tuesday, June 17th 2008 (Revision 129):

  • Removed random name code for now as it delayed spawning and caused some problems
  • Fixed exception error with empty pill cannister
  • Fixed bug with sandbox that threw errors if you logged out or died with the sandbox panel open
  • Fixed bug in sandbox where non-admins could spawn
  • Fixed bug where readying didn't spawn you
  • Changed headset trigger from / to ; as / clears the chatbox when in chat mode
  • Added the Chaplain position
  • Made some new access levels

Monday, June 16th 2008 (Revision 117):

  • You are now told what your job is and are offered to change your name, even if you aren't AI. This implementation is kind of kludgy and will be rolled into a new character sheet in the future.
  • Fixed the default state of req_access_txt to make things easier for mapmakers.
  • Fixed a bug with how req_access_txt was being read
  • Removed the "THROW" icon from the AI's HUD
  • Shuttle arrival and holding times have been cleaned up to make them easier to modify in the future.
  • Fixed bug that would prevent rounds from ending.
  • Meteors do more damage, but no longer blind/deafen/mute you.
  • Meteors can now fly in from all directions, not just the East.
  • ACCESS LEVEL REVAMP. The old 4>2-2-0 security cards are gone and have been replaced with a permission-based system. That means you are given actual permissions such as "Access security" or "access the bridge" or "eject engine core". All items (computers, doors, etc.) check your security card for the required permission to be set. As this changes how station equipment works, it breaks all previous maps. There is a .txt in the root folder of the SVN detailing how to convert old maps. All appropriate security computers and interfaces have been updated for ease of use. The added benefit of this update is that adding new and wild permissions is now VERY easy to implement, both on the map side and code side.
    • Asleep and unconscious people now hear muffled voices instead of clear text.
    • Fixed problems that occur when two people have the same name.
    • Turning off your internals now generates a refresh (it only worked when you turned them on before)
    • Timer-igniter combinations now ignite things other than bombs.
    • The Camera item has been removed from the forensics locker (it was broken and lagged out servers anyway)
    • Left clicking on the teleporter computer now brings up the command dialogue (instead of having to right-click)
    • The teleporter dialogue now lists only beacons, not all things with frequencies (and you can only lock onto beacons)
    • The AI can now operate the teleporter (with some difficulty, particularly locking onto things - camera must be in follow mode)
    • Left-clicking the teleportation hub now toggles it on and off.
    • The teleportation target now follows the becaon (instead of the first reported beacon location)
    • Turrets now hit people lying down.
    • Turrets now shoot you in random body parts, not just the chest (which fixes the turrets-never-kill-you bug)
    • Turrets now have a 3 second cooldown between shots so they don't spam you to death in the first second
    • RWalls now produce and consume the same amount of materials when building or dismantling. No more free metal, kids.
    • EMags now open (and break) secure closets. Added a new icon (by Judenhauer and weasello) that shows FANCY SPARK EFFECTS!
    • People wearing a face-obscuring mask and wearing no ID now show up as "unknown"
    • Gas masks no longer count as helmets (they used to shield from head damage)
    • The nuclear disk can now be observed, so dead/admin can follow it
    • The sandbox panel now requires authentication (pubbies were spawning toolboxes in the start area and beating each other)
    • The sandbox panel now appears even if you spawn in mid-round
    • The "enter" verb has been removed and it's functionality has been rolled into "ready" (you only have to type READY to spawn in now)
    • You now spawn into the game with all the equipment associated with your job assignment (toolbox in hand, clothes on, etc.)
    • You no longer start mid-round naked
    • Walls are now built directly under you, making your 'facing' direction no longer important. To make this happen, girders are now passable tiles (you can walk through them).
    • "Repair wall" is now gone, instead you use metal on the exposed girders.
    • Time to build and dismantle walls has been increased to compensate for the new ease of building them.
    • Traitors no longer get the "Hijack" verb (there was no legitimate use for it)
    • The "Eject Engine" objective no longer appears for the Traitor, and has been replaced with "Cut power to 80% of the station" (that figure can be easily adjusted in the code)
    • Added "Kill all monkeys on the station" traitor objective
    • Added "Destroy 70% of plasma containers on the station" traitor objective (value easily changed in code)
    • Added "Destroy AI" traitor objective
    • Fixed some traitor text to make more sense
    • The Intercept now only prints on the bridge (no longer in engineering or security)
    • The AI mission of "kill everyone" was actually coded as a percentage value. The mission now reflects the code (and defaults to 75% murder rate - which is higher than before)
    • Fixed the bug where it was impossible to steal a fully charged laser (since laser charges were reduced below the threshold)
    • Fixed issue where airlocks would attempt to close even if they were already closed.
    • Air tanks now start with a flow rate of 100 enabled (instead of 350), oxygen in the tank is now 25% of what it used to be, and jetpacks have half of THAT.
    • Tasers have 4 charges instead of 8.
    • Game Kit is now fixed (chessboard)
    • Stacking large piles is fixed (previously clicking a pile of 50 on another pile of 50 created one pile of 5 and another of 95. They now both stay at 50)
    • Radio communications methods have changed. You would now use:

    say "/words words"
    instead of:
    say "\[h]words words
    All other commands, such as \[r], \[1], etc. have been replaced with :r and :1, etc.

    • Unauthenticated users can no longer vote.
    • There is now an indicator if the person you are observing is dead.
    • Rearranged the order of suffixes in the observe code.
    • Regular batons are now replaced with stun batons. They look cooler, do more damage, and stun people for 10-60 seconds with each hit. They can still talk while stunned.
    • The throwing system has been completely replaced. Now you can click throw, then click on the square you want to try to throw to. Your facing direction no longer has any effect.
    • Throwing items no longer alters your direction of travel. If you slip into space, throwing your shoes will move you one square backwards but you will continue to float in the direction you slipped.
    • Mass drivers can now drive anything, and they can (With some trivial code changes) even drive diagonally.
    • Only spacesuits protect you from the vacuum of space. Firesuits and biohazard suits will now send you to the morgue.
    • Suicide verb fixed so you can use it in the spawn area (in case you want to observe), you can no longer suicide if you are dead (duh), and you can attempt suicide once every 20 seconds now (in case some jerk doctor is healing you or you are monkeyed back to life).
    • Attacking people at spawn should now be disabled. You might be able to hit people with ID cards but they do zero damage. Admin spawned weapons still hurt.
    • Personal lockers now have smarter stacking (headsets and backpacks on the top)
    • False walls now work properly whether you are holding a tool or not (it doesn't auto-open if you are holding a tool)
    • False wall display bug fixed
    • A lot of code cleaning was done, making things niiice and pretty.

    • APCs can now be cut with wirecutters (only while open!) to disable AI control of the APC. I plan to add a hack type deal (like airlock doors) into them later.
    • Fixed the chapel pod door controls (oops).
    • Blob mode: removed some blob spawn points that might cause it to die pretty much instantly.

    Gibbed's changes #4 - TEST VERSION #1 4/25/2008

    • Anesthetic tanks now default to a rate of 250.
    • Blob mode: blob in a tile with plasma is inhibited from propogating to surrounding tiles.

    • Removed insulated gloves from athmospherics and added a glove to engine control.

    • The teleporter room has been moved to the south part of the station.
    • Small aesthetical changes to the medbay and medlab.
