Russian Revolver modification/chance to spawn as REAL revolver!

Unread postby Lynch » Sat Jul 07, 2018 8:57 pm #424748

Hey boys, it's ya boy Lynch (the guy behind searing meats with a welder torch) bringing you yet another hot idea from recent rounds.

Most of my ideas have been brewed during rounds from things that happen during the rounds.

Background:
>Playing as greyshirt on Metastation
>Realize you're hungry and head to the kitchen/bar for some dank donk pockets
>Asshole med doc beside you stares at you wrong
>Steals your deep-fried mouse
>You think of a way to prank him back
>Pick up "Russian Revolver" in theater (thinking it's a cap gun) to fire at the asshole MD
>Revolver goes off, all 6 rounds, POW POW POW.
>MD on floor bleeding and dying.


Basically there has been a bug with the TG-codebase Russian Revolver that allowed people to fire it at other players like a normal 357 revolver.
With my findings posted to Github, Jared was able to fix the issue, but this is something that I have encountered TWICE now, on different servers.
Every time it happens, I ask people how it was possible, and no one has ever discovered the real reason except now.
GH lobs here:
https://github.com/tgstation/tgstation/ ... -403240944

So going forward, with the bug fixed:

What if we actually implemented two things to add disorder and chaos to our rounds involving the Russian Revolver:

1) Chance to spawn as a REAL .357 Revolver (but name/label/description exactly the same as the Russian Revolver) in the Metastation (or any other spawn, including PDA uplink or station start spawns).

2) What if we made it possible to modify a Russian Revolver into a .357 Revolver? This would kinda be similar to loading up bartender's shotgun with lethal rounds, but it would be using the same .357 rounds but modifying the Russian Revolver receiver to let it fire normally.


I understand there might be some balance issues, so hopefully we can figure out a good way to implement this.

you modify the revolver and each shot has a 50/50 chance of either shooting you or the guy you're aiming at

I lay my eyes upon!!! Can you believe this!? Disgracing my name in multiple ways within the mere span of a few MINUTES!!!! I tell him "NO NI[B][B]A," he laughs. I inform him, "I'M GOING TO GET BWOINKED FOR THIS," as a joke referencing rule 8. To which PEE KAY PENGUIN, THREE HUNDRED AND TWENTY SECOND OF HIS CLASS, immediately bwoinks me, informing me "Yes, that is correct. You are currently being private messaged by me, PKPenguin, mastermind behind the /tg/station headmin triumvirate. Prepare to be banned, plebian. *smirks* ...and it looks like you've already had your final warning. *begins booting up ban cannon* Any last words...?" I am shocked by this statement. I voted for this man in the headmin election, I'm supposed to have ban immunity from him!!! The power has gone to his head!!! After a few seconds that feel as if they last forever, I remain silent -- frozen under the prowess of extreme shock and awe. "No...? Heh, well then... *eye glows blue* Into the trash it goes!" Not even 5 seconds after I read this final message, my PC shuts off. I'm literally shaking at this point, not knowing whether I am going to live to see tomorrow. I just got off the phone with my mom, informing her that we may not see each other for a while. She was confused, and starting to get scared -- so I just had to hang up on her. I didn't want to put her through what you put me through today, PKPenguin321. You are a disgusting, vile creature -- and if you ever talk to me or my mom ever again, I WILL bring you down. Back down to where you came.

remember when the russki revolver simply spun its chamber before firing but did actually let you load it with six rounds and shoot other people
wasn't that fun

If it hits you it does 300 damage, but since its not used to firing if it hits your opponent it does 30

I remember back in the day it functioned as a regular revolver with the caveat that it fired a random chamber.
I abused the fuck out of that as and it was removed for good reason.

but yes what if
just imagine what if
it worked like that again, but with a half-second to full-second delay between clicking and firing and a loud chamber spinning noise
anyone who doesn't immediately enter juke mode only has himself to blame for getting robusted

Well the alternative to a 6 shot half-jamming revolver spawning in that room is a full stack of bladed syndicate cards or bolas + ninja stars that'd spawn instead (both of these having 100% functionality rate) so in my opinion it's not like adding this would really add anything more abusable than anything else.
