Make it so the CENTCOMM terminal in the bridge lets you contact centcomm on 1
#1
I think this would be a cool way to encourage RP and let people talk with the 'mins without it being pray/adminhelp, Example:

[email protected] - 07:17 17/06/52: mail --msg “Oh god a terrorist is blowing stuff up please send help” [email protected]


Broadcast Message from [email protected]:You have unread messages

[email protected] - 07:17 17/06/52: mail *

Mail version SMI 24.1-OWV3 Sun Jun 17 07:17:24 GMT 2056  Type ? for help.
 "/usr/spool/mail/centcomm": 1 message 1 new
     1 mscott       Jun Jun 17 07:17 "Get security to do their job"


Or something to that sort idk but i think it would be cool.

But admins are space-gods. The people at Centcom are just other humans that work for nanotrasen.

We should have players running on a z level you can't reach with player bureaucrats running centcom. Filing reports, making spreadsheets, and having conference calls. They can answer that email.

I think this would be good if it was a ghost option, kinda like what some of the other servers do?

Maybe give them cameras so that if shit hits the fan, they can confirm and call the shuttle themselves in case the station is lacking anything willing or able to.

Let them have cameras to watch shit hit the fan too.

How about if someone on the RP server dies with no option of revival, how about they "switch character" and become a Nanotrasen Official?

Just realized that this could cause metagaming, nevermind.

It would allow metagaming on Goon2, but you're talking about RP1 which is already slathered in good faith trust exercises and a "fun first, winning later" mentality (we hope). 
I think of all the places to add a new interactive observer role, that's gonna be the best.

Application only Centcom official role? I can't think of a purpose however.
Declining the self destruct sequence?
Recalling the shuttle autocall?

I like the ghost idea, perhaps just role-ban it if people start meta-gaming and let em goof off at centcomm

I mean, if ghosts are gonna act as Centcom, they ought to be bogged down with bureaucracy and have to vote for everything

60% majority in favor of to take action on requests

Make it 2/3rds majority with 2/3rd Quorum and you've got the makings for a parliamentary deadlock!

Worst case if meta ends up being a regular issue and if the role is popular enough maybe another whitelist with an application process like HoS could be added. This sounds like a fun idea, it would be interesting to see how it would play out.

Make a Centcom tab that has a few actions for carrying out procedure
  • Declaring present: Announces you're there and makes you eligible to vote
  • Present a motion: Let's you propose an action to be carried out. Action must be voted on first to be presented, then again to pass
  • Vote Aye: Vote yes on a motion
  • Vote Nay: Vote no on a motion
  • Nominate: A special motion that picks a person to actually carry out motions that have passed, giving them additional admin like tools to do things like call and recall the shuttle

Not if the person doing the support call is instructed to pretend as if they're a support line person and do the bare minimum to send backup to the station, and they have buttons that only activate after crappier buttons have been pressed with a cooldown in order of least to most useful.

"Best I can do right now for your murderer problem right now is I can send you a single meatball"

"Can I speak to your supervisor"

"uh he's conveniently gone"

Legitimately talking, I will start frequenting Goon 1 if I can do this.

That sounds amazing. What if it were some random off-Earth corporation that Centcom offloaded all their employee service calls to?
