Ah, yes, that thing.
Now that was a clusterfuck. I could have planned that better, all in all. Considering how we mostly fought with the server itself.
It's a shame you missed the ending where I got, uh, "saved" by getting a "tranquilizer round" to the face.
Then again, I was firing a rail gun at everyone...so, fair enough.
We should have done more of those, though. And I did even manage to get proper admin tools eventuallly. Ah well.
Well you have to press F11, then after the animation is completed you are ready to click the fire button and commit it.
If you have a weapon of sorts in your hand. Otherwise you'll just shoot yourself with a finger pistol.
Buuut, are people really doing that? Telling someone else to F11?
It´s like i said before. If laughing and crying in the mic is used for being "crazy" or sad, why did people not do that before they implemented the Cannibal mechanics?
Now when people are "caught" and these side effect happen, they are excused and you then you are left with looking the other way. People know of the infection..about the quarantine, about groups and events, but not that people eat each other and they are flipping out because of it?
We are immune to the infection, but what´s to say that does not advance or "mutate" the damage done to the body when eating the flesh from someone?
I am not saying what it is used for, I am merely stating my interpretation of someone acting like that and what I think most people would assume.
What do you mean with "caught". If I were to catch someone chomping on someone's corpse then he would have a bit of lead delivered to his cranium rather quickly, or not, depending on how he presents his case.
But if I caught someone crying or laughing maniacal, the ingame symptoms, then I would just stay away. They might be dangerous and/or unstable. Or someone might try to comfort them, depending on the person.
Not saying people acting weird should be excused right away, but they would have to put on some convincing acting that they are just very stressed out or lost someone important recently instead of just being...a "regular madman".
Not my call to decide if the infection would make you get some disease from eating human flesh faster. Might happen, might not happen. But whose first thought would be that someone is acting weird because the infection made them get Kuru faster?
No it´s not. I found out about it in school and through TV, papers and such. Cars are very much more common than this, yet i know nothing about them. Why? Because i don´t care and i have no interest in it. I have made school reports about psychology and trauma etc + we have had papers written about the movie Alive and it´s surroundings. I would hardly call myself educated in a scientific degree, but nevertheless i knew about this. I find it strange that people doubt anyone would have known about this actually. Is it actually that strange?
It´s not that you should have the exact knowledge to Diagnose Kuru ingame, but that you should be allowed to recognize a Cannibalistic trait and avoid or take precautions or combat it. Call it Kuru...buru...flusiluru or whatever you wish. The name does not matter. It´s that you should be able to recognize what the reason for it is now when it´s been happening all over the area we are in.
I tend to disagree.
Keep in mind that while you learned about Kuru in school, the TV or papers not everyone might have. After all Kuru is a disease that can only be found in a few, few parts of the globe and I doubt many people would do a report in school about it. Well, I, for one, first heard about Kuru whilst playing Standalone.
So, what would classify as a cannibalistic trait? The laughing and crying ingame? Personally, I would attribute that to, simply put, "regular insanity" like the one portrayed in games and movies because I think people would firstly think of that than cannibalism.
*after listening to all the transmissions Jarvis decides to respond*
"This is Jarvis Seistt.
I am, as a matter of fact, looking for a decent place to stay at. Temporarily, at least.
So, if you will have me for a few weeks I would be more than happy to lend you my metaphorical sword and whatever other skills of mine may be of use. Provided you are not situated in the worst middle of nowhere.
Do let me know how you decide. I'll make sure to keep the radio on for a while.
You would be able to hear the conversation from inside the vehicle and you can turn on whisper mode on certain radios so whatever the radio picks up can be heard louder and clearer by everyone on the frequency.
The rest. It wasn't that much information that we initially had or we could gather from the radio streaming the conversation. You destroyed documents on Napf, you destroyed documents here and killed someone who might have known what those documents said.
So you are either working for the council trying to clean up their traces are you worked for them in the past which in the end results in the same outcome.
I knew you were BHM as soon as I saw you arrive with your Kamaz as it had the logo on it, in a quite visible manner. Someone also saw you take Derek hostage and told us, though we at first thought you captured him for CRA.
The second part is true though, merely the part of the conversation before you seperated me from the rest of the group was streamed. I must apologise if this lead to any confusion.
