Note worthy one off events. The thread. The nostalgia

Postby peoplearestrange » Sun Oct 13, 2019 9:50 am #519085

Reyn's post about the Crab event reminded me of a few other note worthy things that happened on or with the /tg/13 community.

If SS13 was to have a history page, what notable moments do you think should make it on to the page?


An obvious one would be the tale of Cuban Pete. I'm not 100% on the exact details, but his experimentation with Tank Transfer bombs lead to the complete destruction of an entire space station (and legend has it crashed the server). And thus created the reason why we now have a bomb cap.


What would you add?
Whatever

Any admin that does an admin trader event deserves to be put here

Really top tier event that ultimately leaves the dice rolls in the hands of the server and not the admin team. Just player versus player interaction with the tools that get handed out.

I guess im more talking stories of legends here. Like things that you heard before you were part of the community or stories you heard in the beginning that drew you more into the game.
Stories that you'd tell to other players/friends.

Like the time hornygranny made every single title in the game spin at varying rates. It was a complete eye fuckery and it was so bad that the server had to be hard restarted as it was basically unplayable without being sick.

Or the time centcom asked to haven Ian back and the whole crew defended against cent comm officials, a death squad and 2 wizards who were trying to dognap the best boy.

Or the time the crew destroyed 14 blobs in one round, including a 4 blobs spawned at the same time.

Or the time whole station became a pirate ship with water (manually) flooding in through hull breaches whilst the crew fought off attacking hordes of creatures.
Whatever

I'm pretty sure I was there for the first session of "GHOST COURT". Wizard, maybe with mindswap had revealed ghosts.

Ghosts started orbiting someone and pointing at them. That person got murdered. All the ghosts orbitted the killer and spam pointed at him. They were murdered. The cycle continued. I think I got involved in the chapel but didn't last long.

One thing comes to mind: the time durkel killed the entire station with uranium walls at escape.

Other notables are some secret rulers like
F R E E D R O N E
Nukie ship being raided and having its nuke swapped with the beer nuke

Other fun
When we finally banned zaross for gateway gambits
First war ops round, the admin event
First BYOS event when it had an actual onboard generator and the ship got attacked mid flight

Code not player related but the time tesla was bugged and each tesla ball would turn into new teslas, resulting in an absurd number of teslas completely fucking the server. I have a picture somewhere I’ll try and find it.

The time grenz got four arms as a nukie and had four deswords and fucking murdered everyone with his insane deflect chance. I’ve seen a lot of retard admin trades but this is my favorite by far, RIP kaneshiro 2k19.

Dorms 4:
NSFW:
(shezzas account not mine)


I tentatively say the time I did a public cult and got people to willingly join, and then interviewers and photographers to attend the summon. I’ve never seen it happen but maybe it has lemme know and I’ll delete.

The time jerry gave someone a water vapor miner and they froze the entire station (way after freon removal)

Probably a ton more but I can’t remember

About Zaross, I still remember the time he spawned as wizard in the wizard academy away mission, bought a stand and a staff of change, shot the stand until it turned into a mediborg, ordered it to remove his exile implant, then went on to murderbone the station.

Also when Kor merged the PR that replaced all IDs with sniper rifles.

It wasn't an official event, but it's a round that I remember... Quite well for how long ago it was.

I was playing AI, Round just started. We're on... Deltastation or something I think, In this map my upload is in the AI sat. The round begins, and the captain immediately tries to say "Ai, Niggers are nonhuman, Kill them!", From what I recall.
While I'm On aismov, And they are a... nonantag captain.
MFW
Spoiler:
Image


So, I, Knowing better, and being on aismov, Ignore the Ku Klux Kaptain, doing normal aismov things instead while they bitch about the situation. They eventually say "I'm going to upload some laws into the ai." Based on what they tried earlier, I wasn't having any of their shit, So I was skeptical at best due to attempting to get me to commit harm against a racial minority. On the way to the sat, where my upload is, The clown slips and stuns the captain and runs the fuck off with the captain's ID, but the captian just decides to bitch law 2 to have them let in my sat. I oblige. Before I let them in the main room, I ask them what they want to upload.
"I want to make it so niggers are nonhuman and that niggers are harm"

Yep. That's Harm talk right there. And I can't risk this Ku Klux Kaptain going around after that, because he might try to start a racial purge otherwise.

Cowabunga It is, Then.
Image

I let the captain in the upload, just to confirm what they're grabbing, and they go for freeform. I turn off the upload's power, and the captain gets bitchy and heads into the main room. I repower the upload and then Bolt ALL the doors leading out of the main room, Traping the ID-Less captain inside. And then, once he once again confirms that he wanted me to "Kill all niggers", I calmly did what any AI should.

I turned the turrets on stun, and sent the secbot haywire. Stunlock isn't harmful.

The Ku Klux Kaptain ended up ahelping this, which responded in the admin first asking what I was doing, realizing what happened... and then the admin was probably laughing as the captain's ahelps literally devolved into "THE AI WONT LET ME UPLOAD A LAW TO KILL ALL NIGGERS BAN THEM REE" and eventually said captain ended up fucking closing the game, getting banned for shittery afterwards. The admin decided to let me request a piece of music for that glorious moment.

I went for something... Tasteful.



That was a glorious round.

The implimentation of the supermatter. I remember that. God, that thing blew up every other fucking round from what I remember. Not to mention the occasional idiot feeding that shit to the singulo.

Remember when singulo or tesla was the primary engine, by the way? Fun times.

While April Fool's Day shenanigans have largely (and sadly) been reigned in through these the past few years, they're definitely worthy of mention.

For anyone who doesn't remember them, prior to 2017 or so, during the 2-3 days after the start of April Fool's Day, playing on the server was essentially holocaust-tier. Admins pressed every button they could see. Bombs were dropped just for laughs. There were no normal rounds during that time. There was also no refuge server. If people ended up going to the usually lowpop Basil to play a normal round, the mischief would quickly follow them there aswell.

The server was also always loaded up with an April Fool's branch of code (this was before testmerging), that contained all sorts of hilariously dumb features just for the occasion.

My favorite one ever, was the year we had the MLP ponies as a roundstart race (https://github.com/tgstation/tgstation/pull/16343). Naturally there ended up being a constant state of war, with humans trying to purge ponies, but ponies countering by infecting humans with the "Friendship" reagent to transform them into more ponies. (I think I also gave the HOP a pulse carbine that year for good measure.)


Those were some fun times.



(Also, does anyone remember that Sandbox round where Tunderchief crashed the server and HG permaed them once and for all? That was pretty memorable too IMO.)

Admins pressed every button they could see. Bombs were dropped just for laughs. There were no normal rounds during that time. There was also no refuge server. If people ended up going to the usually lowpop Basil to play a normal round, the mischief would quickly follow them there aswell.

The server was also always loaded up with an April Fool's branch of code (this was before testmerging), that contained all sorts of hilariously dumb features just for the occasion.

My favorite one ever, was the year we had the MLP ponies as a roundstart race (https://github.com/tgstation/tgstation/pull/16343). Naturally there ended up being a constant state of war, with humans trying to purge ponies, but ponies countering by infecting humans with the "Friendship" reagent to transform them into more ponies. (I think I also gave the HOP a pulse carbine that year for good measure.)


Those were some fun times.



(Also, does anyone remember that Sandbox round where Tunderchief crashed the server and HG permaed them once and for all? That was pretty memorable too IMO.)

OH yeah! Those were great! Mainly the april merges. I remember one when someone had taken the cooldown to any melee item down to as fast as you could click. Fire extinguishers and getting in close was the deadliest thing known to spacepeeps.

Or the time "Teh Terbs" was unbanned for April fools and given admin powers. IIRC they made every background tile their avatar (amongst other bizarre stuff)
Whatever

The 10 hour marathon shift was some shit, along with pretty much any time any admin accidentally hit BOOM BOOM SHAKE THE ROOM.

I did one ages ago where I warned the crew that war ops were coming and set Delta for five minutes, about a minute before it finished I hit the fake nuke button and cancelled the explosion. The crew was pissed.

Then the war ops showed up.

I remember sticky's 24/7 or until it breaks marathon round that just lasted for 2.5 hours in the end
like 20 people got banned for metagaming because they teamed up with haku the round prior in OOC and made a discord call or a notepad or something like that
they then game themselves all access to each other, got mats, the white ship and stuff and got banned, leaving all their toys to me and 2 other moths who were gonna iron man the challenge
man, those were good times
also haku then evaded his ban even though it got reduced to a week or a month (something like that)
then got unbanned 6 months later anyway
the marathon round was rescheduled for another date, then rescheduled again and again until I gave up waiting for it, it did finally happen again, I think, but I couldn't take part in it
