'Safeguard' objective.

Postby Spacemanspark » Tue Jul 15, 2014 5:41 pm #19703

This is already in the code, and if you don't know what this is, I'll explain:
It's an antagonist objective to protect a certain individual onboard the station.
By protect, it just means make sure they don't die, essentially.
Now... if your protectee suicides at round start, it should do one of two things:
1. Not hold it against you. You should auto green text, or the objective should be erased entirely.
Or...
2. Auto gain a new person to protect.
This objective will /hopefully/ encourage less murderboning and the like.
AI's can also be given this objective when they are traitors.

To be honest, not many people will like having their chance at being an antag ruined by having their griff license revoked.

Though this essentially voids the point of objectives as a whole. All that will happen with this approach is the griffseekers will whine about missing greentext because they want to go on murderbonathons and their protect target died in the melee denying their greentext,

Either I didn't clearly state myself or something. I fully expect that adding these objectives will just end with enough whining that they get repealed. I'm all for objectives that remove pointless murderboning, but I don't expect that to last very long.

Whining about greentext didn't stop parapen from getting removed and it's certainly not a reason not to add more objectives.

I like the objective idea, though it does leave many ways for the antag to get unintentionally screwed out of his green text.

However I always operate under the assumption that antags simply do whatever they bloody well want, if that includes going for greentext, sitting idle or killing everything that moves, then so be it.

Ive always hated escort missions in games, so i hate this idea. Its probably a good way to get antags to do something other than just kill stuff, but then they are antags, they are meant to mess with the round. Not that i have a problem with murderboning antags, i think stuff like that is perfectly fine and something we are all guilty of.

So many things could go wrong with this though. How are you supposed to ensure his survival? If im a Cargo Tech and my VIP is a Scientist, do i just sit outside his department stalking him? He would think im trying to kill him. Id need to get a job change to even be able to observe him, and even then following someone is just asking for trouble.

I do think antags, specifically traitors, need more diverse objectives that are not just about killing or stealing a single item. But escorts sound tedious as hell, and id probably just ignore the objective if i ever got it.

Oh, jee, you cannnot parapenC4 any more, how difficult it becomes, right?

Bring materials or some random crate to R&D and stick around. Have a chat and be nice, chances are you'll be welcome to stay. Besides, you're probably not required to stay with them forever, just keep an eye on them, have a PDA chat, think of some imaginary requests to keep it less creepy. Hell, invite your target to romantic dinner, who knows what else is possible? Or may be you want to kidnap them and lock them in 1x1 area and keep them alive that way, sure!

It's basically the same thing as if somebody took your steal objective. Like if CE gave blue-prints to some engi who is now on derelict or RCD got ditched by a random greyshirt who is now braindead in maint. Good luck searching for that. Well, shit happens, greentext is not always easy. It shouldn't be easy.

I love it. It promotes infighting, and defending antags shitting on murderboners.

At absolute worst, murderboning will get slightly curbed.

At best, murderboning will be heavily damaged by vigilante antags with safeguard objectives.

A round today I bought C4 and connected a signaler. Went up to the HOP who was my target and told him I found it in the hall, asked him to secure it.
As soon as he picked it up, I signaled and he gibbed instantly.

Kidnap the target, secure with straight jacket, cuffs, muzzle and blindfold, hook up to N2O internals, toss body somewhere out of the way.

End result:
- Mission Acomplished
- Target permanently removed from the round
- Target likely brain dead.

Or don't, either way you get the same result.

Don't get me wrong, a safeguard objective does add some interesting spice to antag objectives. Its just that I feel a Safeguard objective is a reworded kidnapping objective.

how about "Protect Urist McGrayshirt without violating their freedom"? Wouldn't that prevent Kidnapping your protect target? because Kidnapping violates freedom.

You don't have to kidnap someone to keep them alive. Just stalk them subtle and make sure they don't get ded.

If they do end up ded, find them on suit sensors and clone 'em.

How do you code an objective to account for that? Not kidnapping them that is.

Because if the objective involves failing the player if their target ends up in the brig or in cuffs, that's really bad.

That objective will never be accomplished unless a admin personally ticks that off. Same thing with the Space Ninja's RP objectives.

The thing is though kidnapping them practically guarantees that your target will not die or worse, and if people really want to accomplish their objectives I highly doubt they will leave their success up to chance.

In addition, what happens if the target gets borged? Or goes braindead/suicides? Or any of the other things that can go wrong. All this does is encourage traitors to kidnap their target and hide them somewhere, for the rest of the round, out of the way and incapable of escaping or doing anything.

braindead/suicide: assign new target, or free goal.
perma: you have to break them out
borg: kill the roboticists before he can be borged, then go into hiding as he screams about a madman on the loose.

Don't traitors fail if they're handcuffed? Same thing. But really, I think kidnapping should be a totally viable option.

Kidnapping can prove difficult, they might think you're out to kill them or just don't want to be restrained. Stalking would be the better option.

The objective that makes all on-station stalkers traitor suspects instead of just creepy.
Spoiler:
Nathanael Greene begins to reshape Bryce Pax's genitals to look more feminine.
Nathanael Greene has made a woman of Bryce Pax!

Valerie Sinnet says, "Nathaniel Greene charged the brig with a fucking HONK."

[Common] Assists-the-Crew hisses, "Walker Quinn s-s-s-ss-stole the HoP's-s-s-ss-s door"

OOC: HotelBravoLima: I literally can't be removed from power.

This line gets me every time:
I demand this ban be lifted right now. ~Bibliodewangus

What you hear walking past people:
Erin Wake whispers, "You should ready up on Badger and boink with me..."

"I think you guys are just tired of drinking hitler and now you want diet hitler.
I've got all that great hitler flavor but only half the hitler calories." - Anon3

You seem to be under the mistaken assumption that PR matters. ~MisterPerson

DEAD: Ichigo Momomiya says, "Coravin's just an ass."

Linus Johnson says, "Hey you know I got this game Skyrim last week"
Linus Johnson says, "I have a level 19 ranger and its so fun"
Weston Zadovsky says, "did he just"
Weston Zadovsky says, "fucking hell"

The emergency shuttle has been called. It will arrive in 10 minutes.
Nature of emergency:
Coravin, just Coravin.

Beryl Nyuphoran says, "Fucking get out."
Coravin Vattes asks, "Please?"
Beryl Nyuphoran says, "Please get the fuck outta my lab."
Coravin Vattes exclaims, "Okay!"
[Common] Beryl Nyuphoran {RD} asks, "WHO GAVE CORAVIN ALL ACCESS?"

Lindsay Donk stammers, "L-Luc-ck w-was-s-s s-s-such-h a beaut-tifu p-p-p-pr-r-rom-m q-q-q-queen"

Ty Andrews curls up in a ball on the floor and purrs.

Get out bluespace, you've not been relevant since you lost the elections

That said, I think there are a shitton of degenerates here and I'd probably gas the lot of you if I had the chance. ~Loonikus

What happens if a random Engineer loses the Blueprints in space?or Ian gets gibbed? Or if the guy whose brain you need just got turned into burgers? Greentext is always subject to chance. Safeguard should be no different.

Cult: "What do you mean you spaced the sac target?"
Ling: "What do you mean you gibbed that guy? I needed his brain!"
DA: "You c4'd your doccuments?"

It happens in all of these and more.

Add this as an alternative to the Survivor objective during wizard "Summon Guns!" round.
