you want longer rounds? make an RP server

Postby ragevirus » Fri Dec 13, 2019 9:40 pm #528976

More crew content would be great and all, but the reason that many rounds are short is that most people don't give a fuck whether the round ends or not. When nobody RPs every round feels the same. Revs simply win/lose a team deathmatch, some antag kills a shit load of people, etc. The action can be intense but it always plays out the same. We've seen reruns of these episodes a million times.

If there were engaging stories unfolding then people would want to hang around and see how they play out, or branch into other events. But when people play ss13 without playing roles it just feels like a single player game with a chat box. Right now we call the shuttle at the slightest inconvenience because why the fuck not let's just queue up another round this one is boring anyway. This is not due to a lack of content, this is due to a lack of interesting shit happening. And how does interesting shit happen? When people act out stories instead of acting like every round is just an antag hunt.

It's not that nobody ever tries to RP on tg. I've seen many crewmembers and antags do silly shit to try and engage other players, but rarely does anyone else ever play along. And usually when people figure out the silly guy is an antag they just kill him. This is because the people who want to play a scifi TDM are on the same server with people who want to play a scifi RPG.

But wait, I know what you're about to say. "Ok rage go ahead and write the RP rules and write the code and recruit a bunch of admins and also fuck you your posts are gay." But my posts are not gay. And further:

WE CAN CREATE AN RP SERVER WITHOUT MAKING ANY CHANGES TO THE CODE OR WRITING ADDITIONAL RULES

That's right. All we have to do is change one server name to "RP SERVER - Sybil 2" or some shit. Just add a chat message at roundstart that says something like "You are playing on the RP server. Role play is strongly encouraged here. Try not to be a dick and ruin the fun for others." If we just designate a space for the people who want to RP, they can gather there and make their own stories while the guys who want arcade style ss13 can keep on doing their thing.

You might think I'm wrong about this. You might think that a RP server needs extra rules and admins and shit. The only way to know for sure is to try it. We have absolutely nothing to lose by trying this out, and it will cost nothing other than the 5 minutes it will take to edit some text. We already have excessive server redundancy that is going to waste. There are three identical US servers with no distinction other than their names, and one of those three basically always empty. Just change the damn name and see how it plays out.

I don't know who has the authority to change server names and roundstart messages. So whoever has that power if you are reading this just try this as an experiment and see how it plays out. If the whole thing sucks balls we can just revert the name and I'll admit I have shitty ideas.

I’m generally in agreement but with some thoughts:

- If the only change is some round start text, it will probably take a couple weeks for people to notice, switch over, and get a groove going, for us to really know if there’s a difference in RP quality
- The other part of that is the amount of effort put into RP varies from person to person, so it may end up that the difference in storytelling is slight but now you have a server with fewer goal-oriented players on it, meaning longer (good) and potentially fuckier (bad) rounds
- In an rp-heavy server, what response would you like to see to an antag if not hunting them down the moment their identity becomes known?


It certainly can’t hurt to try, but I wonder if more substantial changes would be necessary to achieve the desired result

When everyone roleplays every round feels the same also. Have you ever actually played on a "high roleplay" server? Everyone just drifts around the station aimlessly in circles, or sits in the bar making pseudo-in-character small talk. Conflict - the meat of any real narrative - is specifically avoided because players start to weirdly associate their characters with their IRL selves and don't want any harm to be allowed to come to them.

The game basically becomes some kind of bizarre pseudo-Facebook with a space station aesthetic. I think the best remedy for being attracted to "high roleplay" is playing on a roleplay server, so I would advise everyone in this thread to go play on baystation for a few rounds.

Making one server an "RP server" implies that all the other servers are shitter filled deathmatch zones. Fuck that. Start enforcing higher RP standards on all the servers.

Yeah it might take a while to catch on. Or a bunch of people might try right away then decide they hate it. Either way it shouldn't matter since only nobody plays on sybil 2 anyway. As for the second point, we'll just have to see how it shakes out. It's true that the quality will depend on the players. There probably won't be any admins either and that will suck. If enough people like it though it might be able to sustain a decent population, thereby attracting more people who want to interact and maybe an admin or two who might have an event in mind.

Nothing wrong with killing antags who are causing damage. What I meant was that guys who are trying to do inventive shit like start a mutiny or a black market should be given a chance to get a story going instead of robusting them the moment you realize they're fair game.

You're totally right about the HRP servers. Bay has a little bit going on but aurora is fucking sad. I'm not suggesting we create a HRP environment though. We can keep the exact same rules we have now and just designate a server for people who are willing to take the time to actually talk to people. There are a lot of folks who play like this already, but we're in the minority and scattered across tg. It's really frustrating when you keep trying to speak to someone ICly and they just ignore you and do their own thing. But nobody should be forced to interact with role playing nerds either, so we ship all the nerds to one place and everyone is happy.

Also all the HRP servers I've seen are mechanically designed to have longer rounds. Tg is different in that it is inherently more fast paced. That will transfer over to the RP environment as well. We are going to be interacting more frequently than people on the HRP servers.
Or maybe it will be just as bad as the HRP servers. We won't know unless we give it a shot.

We can't really demand more work from admins who are already running the show for free. The reason I'm only suggesting a name change is that nobody would have to go out of their way to make it happen. And I think we should have shitter filled deathmatch zones because that's fun too.

Honestly from playing on event hall recently I can say with good confidence that people on event hall are much more cordial and less hostile than the other three servers recently.

He's actually right. EH has a very nice atmosphere, I guess since it's not been sullied by the rest of our servers.

I'd also like to say that Event Hall is home to one of my favorite TG experiences.
I was playing Chief Engineer and the Atmospheric Technician said they needed help. The SM was in great shape so I figured sure why not. I ended up spending the rest of the round teaching them how pipes work, what pumps do what. How gas (((flows))) etc. I honestly love teaching clueless people how to play the game.

Remember - we were mid-RP until people started using Baystation as a boogeyman whenever RP was referenced in any way shape or form, and started randomly calling any RP "ERP" to boot. Then began the gradual process of pushing us further towards the non-RP end of the spectrum, until the revisionists felt safe enough to declare that we were never even remotely near mid-RP.

I feel as though the least that admins could do is force people who use immersion-breaking terms like "round", "antag" etc. in-game to breathe and blink manually.

In the words of of another admin "IM TRYING!"

But yeah, this is mostly my feels. I honestly felt like I was going mad an imagining that we were closer to Med RP, until speaking to a few older people in the community that reassured me that this is what they also remember.

Seeing the conga line of retards come out and whine for 15 minutes after a friendly wizard round ends is frustrating and it would be nice if there was SOME attempt at antagonists not being killbots and crew not being valid hunters. You cannot remove valid hunting (without creating a huge mess) so I think it makes sense to try out a seperate server where that kind of behavior is restricted and players on both sides need to consider options beyond murdering each other wordlessly.

Another example that bears mentioning are vox raiders from para. Their goal is to acquire valuables, and they only kill out of absolute necessity.

Doesn't have to be black and white all the time. If a group of people wanted to have HRP, then just let them use the empty Sybil2. Instead of trying to start making policies and forcing stuff on the majority, let the HRPers build up a sizable population on Sybil2 first.

yeah this is a bad take

honestly I know that tg hasn't been /tg/ affiliated for a long time but it's still wild to me that people think /traditional games/station 13 was never interested in RP

Cautious optimism for the longterm success of Manuel

My concerns were that a dedicated RP server would imply that the other servers don't require any RP at all, and also draw all the people who lean towards RPing away from the other servers aswell. This would be especially bad if Manuel doesn't ultimately survive past the initial period, and then its failure is seen as an indication that RP won't work on tgstation.

There is definite initial success though (if these early rounds are anything to go by), and Manuel has strong potential to grow into a big and healthy server for all of time (which could maybe even end up influencing the other servers as well).

not to be rude or anything but the overall majority of you dinks roleplay about half as well with all your sweet roleplay shit that you have now in comparison to how we roleplayed about a decade and a half ago with ass-looking sprites, closed source code, and laughably feature-bare servers

extremely funny how this is the prevailing opinion among the older players

while you're not wrong, if this is what it takes to get a fun game back then i'm ok with it

i won't pretend to know the opinions of the admin team but you could probably ahelp about rp rule 7 and these people would at least get a poke in the ribs to knock it off (these people referring mainly to the first person)

I guarantee you they'd try to pull a "my character is IC racist to catpeople xd" but whatever that's a stupid post

This. What we should have is higher RP standards across the board, and a containment server for powergaming validhunting overescalating shitters. Not the other way around.

but in this case i am still going to be able to say that mrp niggers get containment servers specifically for their autistic needs

also make the shitter containment server be in eu please thanks

However, talking about changing the rp standards on all servers based on entirety of sybil escaping to mrp server after just one week is a bit premature imo.

it's nice to say this and everything and i agree with it but it's not really a useful comment to make when the vast majority of the playerbase and admins treat the (other, now) servers like lrp
