On round 216256, Terry, roboticists built a secondary AI near roundstart. I later acquired a borg that stated something along of the lines "I'm ready to serve my malf overlord" (I was asimov), which prompted the secondary AI to toggle my APC off. After extended struggle, my borg managed to kill and get rid of secondary AI. The roboticist got mad, and built yet ANOTHER AI to kill me, which, again, after an even longer struggle, and multiple borgs synced to secondary AI sent to kill me, was disposed of by my borg.We have no interest in the general prohibition of station roboticists, research directors and command staff creating or ordering the creation of new AIs, multi-AI rounds have great potential for interesting and shenanigan filled silliness, and we have no intention of banning that wholesale.
With that said, Malf-metaing by taking a posibrain to become an AI and then revealing or contesting their actions is something admins are fully empowered to note and ban for under rules 1 and 2 - don't use respawns to fuck with people, dick move.
Additionally, we're supportive of empowering station AIs to directly action and combat new AIs made without their knowledge and/or consent. Switching off the APC of a new AI with an unknown lawset or killing it for getting in your way is fine.
Now, here's the issue. Neither AI is at fault for trying to merc me, cause I was supposedly harmful, and wasn't actually malf.
"empowering station AIs to directly action and combat new AIs made without their knowledge and/or consent" is REALLY SHITTY there isn't a whole lot an AI can do against a human robo+AI that wants to kill it.
It wasn't fun for me having to spend the entire round killing other AIs, and it probably wasn't very fun for the AIs that got round removed for trying to kill me.
We all abided by policy and the game wasn't fun, pls fix.
