  1. I do appreciate the loving references. It's like Where's Waldo.

    It's definitely better than original Meta.

    In regards to the security office: I like the fact that there's that separate little equipment room like in Meta. However, it is far, far too cramped. Give it another tile of width and you're good to go. Relatively minor complaint, but in a security zone, one tile hallways, however small, are a huge no-no.

    Yeah that sec equipment room is WAY TOO SMALLLLL.
    Add more lockers to it too, and make sure those lockers have stun batons.
    The perseus shuttle dock needs a camera. The execution room too.

    Delete those random grilles in maint as well.

    Where am I in that big picture?

    All regulars not featured on the map exist elsewhere off-screen.

    Listen up a important change i will also list in the changelog, normally when you enter maint and open up a crate or locker you will find a item there and it will be consistent every round. this wont be the case anymore on metabox. the contents of tables, lockers, crates, and racks will spawn "randomly". so the sweet insulated gloves and toolbelts you would normally find in maint will be in different places every round (if your unlucky, nowhere at all). Some people might not like this change but i assure you this means we can start throwing rare stuff into maint.... more rare then finding a insulated glove on the ground...

    I guess this means we might be seeing assistants storm maint to find what kind of round-specific loot they can find.. or maybe even claim the rare trophies that will spawn.
  9. I hate this. Borderline griefers can just steal whatever they want and then pretend that they found it in maint when they get arrested and bitch and moan about it getting confiscated. This will make griefing easier and playing sec harder.

    It will also make maint areas ironically some of the busiest on the station and will make stealth dynamics very bizarre.

    That sounds awesome. Would you mind sharing how you did this?

    We specifically chose some of the gear with that in mind.
  12. You deliberately intended to enable grief and punish security players who want to do a good job? Well, at least you're honest.

    Maybe I am wrong, but I thought he meant they chose gear that is unique? Maybe I am wrong. If it is a bunch of harmful stuff, or stuff that is usually stolen (syringe gun etc), I won't like it, but harmless fun stuff is awesome

    Edited because I wrote the post sloppily

    Solution: Add "Dusty" adjective to rare items found in maint

    Do on that fun items will be old sec armor?

    This. As an example, i specifically requested 1 item be replaced with something else to make sure no one accused the person of stealing it from sec.

    Seriously I am not in the map image? Not even as ghost? NOT EVEN AS A POSTER? I have been observing those pesky maps for 1 year as the Observer and nothing... I am leaving, Thats it. RIP The Observer, RIP Eluxor, RIP Eyuzor, RIP Erpxor.

  18. I "like" not due to the idea of you leaving, but to sympathize with your hurt feelings. <3
