Monstrosity Gamemode

Postby ChangelingRain » Sat Mar 11, 2017 3:47 am #265772

It's time for That Cool Mode I'll Never Actually Code that vg will probably steal or something.

Just click this link and look at the attached document.
This is a direct link to the trait/ability sheet.

tl;dr

1-4 murder beasts that have to murder the crew for limited upgrades that only one of them can have at a time
one guy got the upgrade you want before you could? better go fucking murder them so you can get it
0% conversion, 0% cooperation, 100% murder beasts fighting the crew and each other

Obvious murderfests are really boring and unfun SS13 combat isn't very good and there's already several gamemodes about making people turn horizontal

Ling at least has some theoretical depth and intrigue to it beyond "kill a lot of people"

[20:26:02]ADMIN: PM: [censored admin]->[censored]: Welp. It was just a prank bro isn't a very good excuse when it comes to unprovoked nonantag murder, but since this is your first time doing it and you seem to understand the problem instead of a bannu I'm just going to leave you with a warning. Please PLEASE don't do this again in the future, as funny as crackhead broken bottle memes can be. Alrighty? Do you have any input on this?
[20:26:39]ADMIN: PM: [censored]->[censored admin]: Alright, no problem. I have some input. Fuck my boy pussy.

Not to mention the old days when their goal was to kill and absorb x amount of people and they had an ability which instantly stunned and muted people for an eternity which made it piss easy to do so.

I don't understand the argument here. That's a thing they can do, yes, but they can also approach objectives in other ways too? Compared to this, which seems to propose yet another "small group of players gets to murder everyone and totally derail the round" team deathmatch mode, when rev, ops, cult, and wizard all already exist.

Point of clarity; NOT a team deathmatch mode. It's a free-for-all with only the station's crew being on a "team".

Why do we need another "select group of players has the express objective to murder everyone else" when wizard, ops, and rev all already exist?

Take your pick:
- variety
- it might be fun, maybe even more fun than old modes
- U JUST HATE CHANGE :evil:
- there is no downside to having more modes especially when we have the gamemode odds config (inb4 "codebloat!!! this is adding too much code (even though there is no upper limit to how much code we can have)!!!!!!!!")

Every new feature added requirea potential rebalancing of existing features and deep consideration of how it will fit on and affect the game as a whole (at least, any well conceived feature.) When it is in, every future tweak, refactor, and feature will need to work around both the new code and the new gameplay, balance, and implications of every feature before it.
Feature bloat is a real thing and it doesn't take any level of coding knowledge to recognize this.

As for variety or "it might be fun" the op even says it's just a mass murder mode. Make as many players horizontal as possible already exists in several other forms, why is a new shade of paint going to make it any different?

Going straight for the smear campaign instead of arguing is pretty low, too.
If you really think all forms of combat that end in one person are just mundane "click them until they die" scenarios unironically, you're wrong, and should probably take a break until the game starts being magical and immersive again.

What point about feature bloat? Having multiple antags that kill people in different ways isn't feature bloat. Feature bloat is old clockcult where tons of the spells and equipment were completely and utterly useless, where feature bloat in your mind is an esword and a revolver because they both kill people by clicking on them, and is frankly stupid.

Feature bloat is old clockcult where tons of the spells and equipment were completely and utterly useless, where feature bloat in your mind is an esword and a revolver because they both kill people by clicking on them, and is frankly stupid.

The end result is that a couple players get to have fun the first couple times they get the mode because they are just given express directions to murderbone and then it gets stale because the mode just revolves around mindless killing in a game with really shallow combat anyway. At least with wizard or ops, it's open enough to try gimmicks or go formulate strategies deeper than just kill anything that moves.

As for everyone else, you either throw yourself at the monster and either die or click it a lot and turn the round into extended, or the shuttle gets forcecalled and everyone hides until they can escape and restart the round.

If this gets added it ought to replace wizard or ops, but those are both already conceptually deeper and more interesting than this.

I dunno, it could be interesting as a random event but at that point I doubt anyone would be willing to put nearly as much effort into it.

Is there a specific reason for this?

EDIT: addressing the game mode specifically:

can you explain to me what about this gamemode will allow crewmembers without weaponry to enjoy it? not trying to be rude, but I think another gamemode that relies on whatever happens to be in the armory is a bad idea

like, say, with old shadowlings, despite all their problems you could contribute no matter what - replacing lights, handing out portable light sources, etc. etc.

What about monstrosities will be fun for those who don't roll as one/a sec officer/maybe science if they can make guns?

On the other hand i wouldn't mind an antag you have to avoid/leave to professionals rather than run off to confront with a spear. Some people find meteor mode fun, after all.

I don't know if I agree with this - on the one hand, yeah, I think that is a cool idea, but on the other, I play a lot of lowpop, so I try to consider that too

Sure, you can limit the gamemode to a certain player count, but that doesn't work all the time - I've seen ~30 player games on sybil with little/no sec presence, and it's not uncommon

Obviously in a "this thing needs to die" mode guns will be best, but I think it's important to consider what will happen if good gear is obnoxiously difficult/impossible to obtain

The intent here is kind of that a monstrosity is something a couple prepared assistants can take on, but not something a single person can. Kind of like an alien queen if it didn't have facehuggers or a number of instant stuns.

okay, that seems reasonable

is this an antag ala borers that are added to an existing round or is it its own deal? I assume the latter

I intended it to be its own deal but a very rare event to spawn one wouldn't be particularly bad if it was ~highpop only.

RNG is the cause of a lot of rounds ending abruptly already when antags play a bit nicer, I'm not sure what's to be gained by adding yet another "time to reroll!" forcing event in the face of many people saying they would like more interesting, indepth, longer rounds.

These just remind me of Slaughter Demons+.
