    Leave my snowflake alone :mad: :mad:

    I don't think it's a good idea either, just a thought. I don't have a videogame realism fetish.

    I'm glad the height/weight thing never became mechanical but if it had to be done though, that's what my idea would be. Being larger would make it harder for you to be carried away as a form of balance.

    Somewhat related to all that what about dominant hands having mechanical effects? Maybe on the character creation page you could select if you are left or right hand dominant and using your non dominant for various tasks such as construction and firing a gun will give you a penalty,

    Using your dominant hand is something you just do subconsciously as a human being. I don't think penalizing you for not actively paying attention to at all times in the game is going to turn out to be anything other than annoying.

    I used to carry a roller bed in my right hand to get out of saluting, that's as far as I took paying attention

    Peoples dominant hand is often more dexterous and longer than their off hand for example take your hands and hold them together at the wrist your right hand should be just about a half inch to quarter inch long it should also be more dexterous such as being able to write or other tasks which you just can't get your other hand to so I think a Dominant hand effect at least for Humans would make sense a bit but I think it should be a buff instead of a Debuff for not following it such as better aim.

    I'm right handed. My left hand is about two mm longer than my right hand.

    Then you must use your left hand alot above average. But in general the human body physically adapts to usage IE your muscles expand when you work out, your nerves fatten when you preform the same task over and over and in general you become better with repetition I think having a slight buff based on hand would be a nice little thing to add though being from the aforementioned facts.

    To quote Badmin Sgt Adam:
    "You probably shouldn't expect a response to your faxes most of the time. They're meant more as something for your character to do ICly to enhance RP than to actually get stuff done." - After a Ballistic pod was shot at Torch, hit the ship, almost killed a MAA, and then possibly caused a fire in the engine room.
    If we're not allowed to figure out who authorized it, fired it and why, why have fax machines at all? Get rid of em.

    I think it's more a problem of not enough admins more so than a lack of admins wanting to respond. Plus even ahelps which are direct to them take a good 10 20 minutes for me on average while faxes when responded at all are typically fairly swift.
    So I think faxes should be kept and exspanded on such as Emaggs allow you to chat with BAD MAN HIRERS like an other option is now available where you enter a made up name after Emagging them which would allow for more antag shenanigans to happen.

    You technically can. Suit storage slot lets you put certain items in them while wearing body armor, including flash lights.

    sticky notes run out of stick after a while and fall on the ground when stuck to anything when their stick runs out

    It ought to be possible to put patches and accessories on the bomber jacket. That's literally why you get a bomber jacket.

    give the medical drop pouches the same inventory size as the medical webbing (which would mean it needs 1 extra slot)

    Pretty sure the current state is intended as you can fit more small items in the webbing, but if you get on tiny items, more can be fit in the drop pouch.

    A non-holstered security belt spawn in forensics locker. So if you spawn with a shoulder holster or the like (aka mr detective) you don't need a holstered belt as well. Just a visual thing. Not super important.

    Cue triggering everyone that mains surgeon: Return back to the olden days of 'remove clothing/equipment that would clearly impede or hinder surgery to do proper surgery'

    I'm not sure if you can self repair on bay, but I think we should add a repair kit for bionic arms to the loadout menu. Give it a mini welding tool, a thing of wires, a crowbar, and a screwdriver. It should only have a couple wires and a smaller welding tool, so it doesn't become a substitute for a roboticist.
     
  20. Can the default NanoUI window for camera monitoring be about the size of the PDA NanoUI window?

    It is sort of counter-intuitive the default pop-up window takes up almost all of the screen when you then need to resize it significantly to see anything. In fact, it could even be about half the size of the PDA NanoUI and still work without even getting in the way of chat.
