Re: Melee combat sucks

You want combat to not suck then it has to be less binary! That means the mobs need to be DIFFERENT from eachother. Every fucking Human mob (almost) is the same as every other Human mob crewman. There are no stats that make them Them. You can dress them up but the bit of armor and weapons that might...

Re: Disable assistant maintenance access

What you do is remove assistants entirely and instead have a monkey role for roundstart.
The new role makes you a monkey in one of the pens for departments around. That's it.

Not currently supported in tg code. It's an arcade game with little quality-of-life mechanics.
