Ho, ho, ho, it's December, and you know what that means. Whether you call it Spacemas Cheer, Christmas Cheer, just Cheer, or some other name, it's time to celebrate the holidays!

What is Cheer?

Spacemas/Christmas Cheer is an abstract number representing the general holiday spirit of the crew (as opposed to just yourself or the entirety of humanity). It appears solely when the server is in Spacemas/Christmas mode, that is, during December.

Rather than acting as some sort of morale mechanic or something that ties into the Motives system, Spacemas/Christmas Cheer primarily affects spawns for two holiday-exclusive roles. At high Spacemas/Christmas Cheer, Santa Claus arrives to bring heals, treats, and presents as a reward. At low Spacemas/Christmas Cheer, Krampus arrives to disrupt people and give them a bad time as punishment. Grinches also have a goal of ruining the holidays for everyone by keeping Spacemas/Christmas Cheer low.

Cheer Levels
