You don't, that's why you're sticking them in people so you can study them (That's the lore anyway).

On long voyages do NT sleeper the crew, OD them on chems till they die, have special drones space the bodies and then clone a new crew on arrival in order to maintain the illusion of cryostasis, or is there an army of borgs on NT spaceships to keep the crew alive in suspended animation.

Seeing how they handle everything else, probably whichever is the cheapest option.

Is it cheaper to space and clone them, or to keep them suspended?
given the frequency of cloning in rounds I'd say we get chucked out every single trip (grim ;_;)
Though this has given me an idea...

Trick question, they both cost nothing since NT has discovered both infinitely renewable energy sources and also ways to convert energy into matter.

Probably have a select crew of janitors and engineers who wake up every so often to do maintenance on the ship and make sure things are progressing smoothly.

About this, the sprites are consistent with the gland type, so you can just check the helpful table at https://tgstation13.org/wiki/Abductor#Possible_Glands !

Could always go the Eclipse Phase route and just have them resleeved into new bodies as and when needed

and the stress of constantly changing bodies and being murdered over and over is why most spacemen are fucking bugnuts insane and paranoid

If you pre-heat the components for black powder they'll keep the heat once mixed, so it will be above explosion temperature.

What would happen if someone somehow managed to set up and release the singularity on lavalands? Would it suck in every tile leaving nothing but space or would it just fly around aimlessly doing little harm?

Its actually been tried on lowpop sybil. It eats the rocks and mobs and leaves the ground tiles alone.

I'm actually asking from Yogstation. Our AI core is still in the center of the station, right below the bridge where your command station is.

(To compensate for the AI being in a disadvantageous location, we have Secborgs.)

Still gonna have to say the best defence is hiding. Or getting an engie borg to set up field gens and emitters along the interior in such a way that that they can't get around it (may need to direct wire your core to the grid)

Re: Simple Questions Thread

Field gens need a human to activate last time I tried, and unless you want a supermatter/singularity/tesla (you madman) in your core the engiborg in question can always just cut the cable.

Borgs can turn on field gens if they're next to them but they can't be turned off until they discharge their power completely.

How do you make a dead mans switch bomb?

Re: Simple Questions Thread

PostPosted: Tue Mar 28, 2017 6:30 pm
by XDTM
Attach a health sensor to either a bomb or a signaller, which is in turn tuned to a bomb-signaller assembly. As long as the health sensor is within you (either in the inventory or through surgical means) if you die (or fall into crit, you can swap the mode by using a multitool on the health sensor) the bomb or the signaller will be triggered. If the sensor is removed before your death, the bomb will not activate.

An alternative is a voice activated bomb, which works if you whisper while in crit. Be careful of not being silenced or instantly killed if you do it that way. Tasers also cause stuttering which may warp your message and make it not recognized.

Pills can hold up to 50 units. Patches can hold up to 40 units.
Pills can be dissolved in open reagent containers. Patches can not.
There is no delay when using pills on yourself. There is a delay when using patches on yourself.
Pills can only be used if the consumer's mouth is not blocked. Patches can always be used.

Some reagents besides medicines (e.g. napalm, itching powder, fluorosulphuric acid) also have different behavior when applied through pills and patches.

Patches cannot be used on anyone unless there is open skin. Space suits and bio suits and that block it.

Not all suits. Miner suits, for example, do not block patches.

Explorer suits are not space suits. The mining hardsuit does block them.

With the hardsuits, you can lower your helmet and then aim at head to apply patches.

I just tried this in a nuke suit in travel mode and the patch worked. Same with golems who have skin that's the same property as a spacesuit. Skeletons can never benefit from patches, or any form of chemical, due to being NO_BLOOD and NO_SKIN and NO_BREATH

Bruise packs and ointments don't work through spacesuits though.
