Complaint about delta station's pipes

Postby TothBrush » Fri Mar 22, 2019 7:55 pm #485624

Delta station's disposal pipe network is so bad that an admin literally asked why I was building infinite pipe loops when I built chutes that sent people into it. Players spent so long going through the DEFAULT PIPE SYSTEM that they ahelped it and told the admins I had built an infinite pipe loop.

someone really needs to rework the disposals pipes because this is kind of ridiculous.

Delta is pretty big and disposals is kind of poorly designed, you can't make branches off from the pipes except for going to one specific bin, and you can't just have them all branch into one central pipeway because then the delivery system wouldn't work.

There's very little you can do.

I wish I were such a beloved shitty admin that when I make a shitty map and stop maintaining it then people will keep it around just because all other comparatively large maps were removed for having the same flaws as my own map

Which maps? Delta and Ceres are quite different. I don't remember the older maps however I think they were meant to be smaller and or literally no one would bother maintaining them.

edit 2: nvm my rant on what defines a map's quality

Remember when we shat om dreamstation for being too big while deltastation has a maint bar larger than the bar on box or meta with a ragecage and maint hallways two, three tiles wide? Wasn’t that funny guys? Wasn’t that funny?

Did someone maintain dreamstation? If yes then you will have a point. If not then shit was fucked anyways. Also, maybe the size was more intimidating or the map just wasn't interesting enough. I imagine people didn't start mass hating dream station for no good reason. I remember when we hated Pubby yet I don't see that as much anymore and even I like it now.

yes, i know that okand made delta and isn't here anymore therefore Delta has no maintainer (that i know of), but it must mean something if no one is willing to maintain Dreamstation and go "this map is better than Delta so let's remove delta"

yeah its kinda dumb but like

you could make a pr to remove that stuff or change it

it's not even difficult compared to learning how to code

I prefer delta disposals simply for the fact that you can more easily reroute it to the SM. Power the station with TRASH! or people you think are trash!
