Make it to where you can read the frequency a station-bounced radio/intercom is operating on in the examine text, but only if you're close to it.

Add the following:
Make it possible to construct a bronze airlock frame from bronze sheets, they look identical to pinion airlocks but don't have the cult magicks.
Add bronze tiles in place of floor tiles as putting an entire sheet of bronze down is rather wasteful.
Make it possible to splash copper on glass and rods to make bronzed glass and bronze rods respectively. Bronze rods can be used to make CC-style grilles, lattices and catwalks whilst bronzed glass can be used to make bronze windows.

Obviously the toner cartridges don't fit into the hand labeler.

Enforce oraclestation contraband rules, having noslips or basic syndigear is allowable, having things like thermals are contraband with a significant jail time, and stuff like Emags and deswords are enemy of the corporation tier.

That would detract from obtaining valids and give antags special protection.
The former is bad because the server is bad, the latter is just bad, period.

Yeah, giving antags any amount of protection is just plain bad as long as they have the whole "being able to do just about anything" rule.

Starcraft references are sincerely lacking in general. Maybe I just never notice them. I'd say the only one I've seen would maybe be the nightvision goggles for nuke ops look similar to ghost's headgear, but even that is generic.

I feel that there are a few things that could be added to change that:
When using a flamethrower, players randomly say either of the phrases "Need a light?" or "Wanna turn up the heat?" Two common phrases that a firebat says in Starcraft 1. I think this is the strongest or most reasonable of the requests I have. Basically, if you're using a flamethower, being discrete is no longer really an option anyway.

These next two options aren't really as reasonable, since they'd take some work:

Hydralisks and ultralisks (or maybe zerglings instead) should accessible in a similar manner as xenos. To be clear, Hydralisks and ultralisks are not able to reproduce.

I don't think I've seen anything of the protoss. Dual wielding e-swords might prompt zealot phrases. It would be neat to have protoss, with energy shields and dual e-swords (zealots) who arrive on the station via a protoss shuttle. I'd say classic protoss would be to only arrive when the zerg does, and to have the objective to eliminate them.

Add two specialist ERT teams: Botanical and Janitorial Emergency Response Teams

Botanical ERTs all have green/blue hardsuits and are equipped with the cutting edge in plant pruning equipment.

Janitorial ERTs are all purple and have the latest and greatest in sanitation equipment, able to clean up even the most stubborn of stains.

Wooden Sword
Like the baseball bat, can be made from wood. While not very robust, it can be used on a chicken to summon a swarm of chickens that will murder you pizza to slice it. Speaking of the baseball bat..

Lucille
You can combine wire and glass shards with the baseball bat to make it more robust. Deals more damage to zombies. Substitute glass shards for supermatter shards to die instantly make a weapon that glows in the dark.

Distillery
A special setup for the bar that allows you to turn anything the botanist can grow into alcohol. Turn potatoes, rice, and more into booze. Be outdone by the criminals in the permabrig who made a ghetto distillery out of the toilet.

I know nobody ever reads this thread but like
what if we removed the "spessman siezes up they are dead you can stop hitting them now" message and had you have to check for a pulse if you didn't have a medical hud. I mean it wouldn't really change much but maybe there would be a few fringe cases where people run off without finishing the job

Disease cures feel like they need a rework. They are from a time when silver/gold was much harder to get, and Chemistry didnt have 1-click macros to instantly make almost any chemical. You are better off relying on stealth and destroying any means of making a Pandemic vs relying on resistance. So yeah, i think the cures either need to be changed to harder to acquire materials, or reworked into a different cure system entirely.

Make TEG's buildable. Maybe tie them into the techweb somewhere early, but add their boards to the Engineering circuit imprinter. The materials could be 4 matter bins, 2 manipulators, 2 capacitors, 1 sheet of glass, 2 sheets of metal, and 2 sheets of titanium. It is cheap enough that you don't have to wait hours for mining to get the mats, but expensive enough that certain engineers can't spam them at round start. This opens up possibilities for more complicated SM set ups, atmos only power generation (the turbine sucks), and adds uses for the plasma produced by the SM.

Perhaps give the podpeople in lavaland a disk storage unit like what the botanists have? Would make it easier than just storing all the disks on a table next to the genetics machine.
