Additions to Geladikinesis

Postby Tohg7. » Sun Jan 03, 2021 5:05 am #586094

I was thinking about additions to what you could make with Geladikinesis, take for example The Snow boulder (costs 25 snow to make), which you can't put in your backpack and can only carry when both hands are free, but when thrown, it deals 40 stamina damage and crumbles into 4 snow blocks on hit and pins players that are knocked down if it lands on them for 10 seconds when thrown, alternatively if you've got enough 80u Ice and 2 snow, you could craft an icicle dagger via The Crafting menu(under misc) which deals 10 brute damage and chills players on hit, but melts and is removed from your inventory if you get put on fire or if you heat it with a lighter/welding-tool/match, ice swords would cost 200u ice to create and would do 15 blunt damage after creation in the crafting menu but can also melt when you're put on fire or heat the ice sword, the ice sword has a 30% chance to deflect bullets and lasers, but also has a 25% chance to shatter if it blocks a bullet or laser, removing the sword from your inventory. On top of all this, you would be able to hide inside snowmen by dragging your sprite into the snowman at the cost of lowering your temperature at a moderate speed and you would also be able to craft snow banks from 10 snow which harmlessly paralyze players that step in them for 5 seconds.

Why i think this would be a welcome addition to the game is because it would give Geladikinesis another use aside from blocking things off although you would have to put in quite a lot of work to be able to fight with geladikinesis.

Cacogen, In your opinion, do you think that Snowballs should be stackable up to 50 snowballs and only be able to be thrown one at a time whenever you try to throw the whole stack?

The best thing we can do is go around spreading a petition saying "The TGstation maintainers should expand upon geladikinesis" in the way that was listed on the ideas forum and get as many TGstation players to sign it as possible.

wyci (when you code it)

by which I mean that you either need to learn to code it yourself or find someone who's interested and has the skills to do so. A petition will not go well, I assure you. It's not how things work around here and you won't like the kind of response and reputation that it gets you.

If you use the image from Postal 2 of the postman with the petition it will get 100 signatures. GUARANTEED!

If you want something done do it yourself, or rise to a position of power and bully someone into doing it for you

That said, I think genetics has more fundamental issues then it's powers, and power-creep will be destructive on the overall

Last I checked, Genetics has only been getting nerfs since the UI improvement. In any case, powers are dumb and the horrifying cross-breed stuff that would be right up the alley for Genetics are instead more Xenobio/Cytology. At this point Genetics is only useful for Space Adaptation and valid hunting with Mind Reader.

I think some of these powers are too strong but being able to hide inside a snowman is hilarious and an auto-add
