This week, in "Occupied Equestria":

Wondering through through the Changeling lands at night on the road between Bales and Whinnyapolis, Onyx, Brie, and Spark have stumbled upon a set of farm ponies trying to hide their cattle in the forest, away from their changeling occupiers. While rescuing a cow, Onyx and Brie have taken heavy damage, and so they followed them to the cabin of a local woodspony. But they found the woodspony and a farmer replaced by changelings, and after a skirmish are alone and wounded in the cabin in the woods.

Over in Baltimare, Dark Star has decided to give up his life as Dark Star, the Earth Pony farm colt, to become Tyrel Jackson, or "Gold Chains," a zebra and aspiring rap artist. Through the magic of Valmorification, it is possible. Iron is freaking out after possibly having received a message from God herself. That, and his usual social awkwardness. Silver is cashing out on a long standing set of projects, and is readying himself for the next phase

Set six years after season 6, Occupied Equestria presents an alternative history where the Changelings have conquered half of Equestria, while a former Equestrian colony - soured to Princess Twilight's notion of harmony with all creatures because of their encounters with griffins - Invaded and took the other half. In Baltimare and the Equestrian Southeast, the magic of friendship has weakened, as Communists, Changeling infiltrators, Fascists, gangs, and corrupt creepy politicians threaten the city. This role play is based in large part upon the Equestria at War mod for Hearts of Iron 4, and uses D&d 3.5e mechanics

Dark Star and Silver are preparing a task for the Civil Administration. Iron is drowning in a Lake. Brie has just gotten approval to speak with a Changeling agent about acting as a collaborator, and Spark is petting the weird cat things.

I have been busy figuring out how to change different parts of this game to be pony related. While I was swapping pictures with whatever pictures I could run across first on my computer, I was wondering what else I could potentially do in terms of modding. The game's launcher has a link to a PDF about the way it processes txt files, making stat changes and AI behavior modifying relatively simple. I decided to mess with that just a little and also found that they have a tool that will access the files and give you neatly organized boxes to change the data with. I highly recommend it to anyone that is interested in playing the game.
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4030377

It isn't perfect as you have to still change a few things manually, such as if you add too many races you have to add more values and pictures in the main files to draw from and some values are 0 which must be at least 0.001 to get the game to run, but it is most definitely a huge timesaver. Just be sure to make a backup of your mod because if anything does go wrong, you may have to delete the whole mod folder to get the game back to a playable state, then you can copy the folder back in.

I then wanted to change a couple of other things like the background in the main menu, but that was baked into the .exe, so I looked for a solution in the forums there and found another mod which I will be using.
http://www.matrixgames.com/forums/tm.asp?m=4263783

This mod adds several tweaks to the game, some new features, and the ability to make your own background image. While I was at it, I found the WVM file for the starting cutscene and replaced it. I'm still looking for the right video to fit the feel of the game, but I can essentially change most everything in this game eventually.

But for now, this is a simple skin change of the races and a couple of stat changes while I was messing around… and a few to give me an unfair advantage. I'll make another thread as I figure this game out and work on the balancing of the races. I have only had time to flesh out the main Equestrian pony faction and the Zebras a little.

Getting into the game itself, there is a whole lot going on in the set up alone. I have set up a normal game,Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Short Arcade like game.
Frame it as Doom. Demons, and monsters are everywhere doing terrible actions.
As you go shooting, looting, and finding secrets they start to look more 'human'.
The 'human' appearance is related to how many horrible deeds you see them do.
Revealing the truth.

For a long form game. Harvest moon type game, and/or Papers Please.
To maximize the impact there should be a build up.

First intro is seeing the relationship in action. Normie McNormalPerson finds himself a plot of land (or a job). He works to make ends meet.
Gradually outside forces make it harder, and more difficult to work.
Eventually he is pushed so that the job/work/lifestyle just isn't sustainable at all anymore, because of their actions.
The world gets vastly more dangerous unless some preventative measures were taken earlier in the game.

I remember a thread where there was an adventure through the stars. The thrill of seeing what anon would stumble upon next, the engaging writing style, and the fun of shitposting all along the way.

I want to make this thread to summon the original anon of this adventure and to remember the fun with a new game. Stellaris anon, if you are out there, thank you and please come back to us.

Until then, I have set up several mods in hopes to make up for my lack of skill in this game: Ace Combat Music, Additional Traits (adds more positive and negative traits to pick for your species), Astronomical Emblem Pack (adds more items to make the empire flag with), Space German March Collection, Masters of Nature (gives the chance of extra events when clearing land to build on), Utopia Expanded 2.0+ (adds more interesting things to find like Dyson spheres and the like), Pony Mod, Pony Stuff, Pony's Magic Technology (adds unique research for major bonuses that are available for both the player and the AI) Pony OC, Deer Portraits, Ponies: The Music Pack, Ponies: The Voice Pack, Pony Loading Screens, and lastly Equus System (sets up part of the galaxy with more generated planets with names that might be something a pony would name).

With all of that, let's begin. I created the Solar Empire led by Daybreaker. The galaxy will feel the power of the sun! The pony race has a few characteristics to it: Conformists due to their loyalty to the throne and tend to be agreeable with a whole dedicated branch of the monarchy dedicated to find any arguments and resolve them, United for many of the same reasons, Sky Born due to Pegasi building cities in the sky, Slow Breeders due to the extremely long time it takes the fillies we know from the show to age at all, and Prodigal as the economy is run mainly on buying party supplies and apple products.

The monarchy is built on the foundations of Authoritarianism which allows for slavery of species, Militarism which has conditioned the populace to endure longer wars, and Spiritualism which can allow for the building of temples, declaring worlds as holy ground, and boosts our unity.

We also have the Civics of United Pony Monarchy which gives the leader a lifespan increase of an additional 10,000 years to simulate Alicorn lifespans and some boosts to trust gain among other empires and our own happiness, and Cuties Marks that give slight bonuses to gaining energy, materials, and research speed.

So, with all of the fighting, and waiting to build more ships to combat the pirate heretics, I was able to make a second science ship to help out with the workload. The new scientist, Swanky, is over in Equus Delta doing the research that takes 4 years or so to finish. Meanwhile, all the stars we have explored have starbases now, which should reduce the pirate raids. I accidently moved Swanky into the next star (yellow) as I tried to get him over to Delta. Nothing was discovered but the name of the star. I will try harder to not let that happen again.

The fleet has been named Solar Fleet #1 for the time being, but I would love to hear what you think it should be named. It now contains 7 corvettes and we have suffered no losses.

The colony has fully developed on the moon and we are now getting resources from them, as well as more population growth. We need to make more colonies, but for now our energy income is not good enough to sustain another one.

Other than all of that craziness, I think we are ready to head back out to your choice of star. Hopefully the adventure will continue to be exciting, but not take up so much time that the update seems to overwhelm with new information.

Unfortunately I only ended up saving the one I've already posted, so instead I will show you this video which was the first release of this mod for private testing.
At the time the only playable heroes were Celestia and Luna, but as time went on other heroes started being added like the mane 6 or other prominent background ponies.

READ BELOW IF YOU ARE CURIOUS ABOUT THE MECHANICS OF EACH HERO


Each hero had a different ultimate that was made to fit the character.
For instance, Celestia's ultimate caused explosions to appear around the members of the opposing team. Such explosions were merely aesthetic, the real effect her ultimate had was a steady drain of HP which stopped at 1HP. So if such team had no medics they were instantly steamrolled. Also, she only had a melee weapon but I don't remember which.

Luna was a carbon copy of Celestia, the only difference was the music that played during her ultimate.

Applejack's character had a similar function to the Engineer. She had a wrench and could build the same things a normal Engineer could, and due to that fact alone, she was simply the best defensive hero of that gamemode. Her buffed health plus the functions and capabilities of a normal engineer were extremely powerfull on defense. I remember her ultimate frequently causing alot of rage which was expressed via voice or normal chat. It spawned lots of crates with minisentries on top of them in random positions close to teammates, which completely nulified 90% of pushes made by the enemy team.

Rainbow Dash's character had a similar function to the Scout, she also had a ridiculous amount of double jumps, which were around 20 if I'm not mistaken. A good RD player could be offensive and rush a team VIP like a Medic, kill him and get out without losing too much HP due to her mobility and double jumps. Her ultimate caused a rainbow to expand outwards from the position in which she activated it. It caused her and her teammates to become 1.5x faster than normal, and also caused a rainbow trail to appear from behind her and her teammates as they moved during the ultimate.I also think that RD's team had their firing rate increased as well but I don't remember so I can't confirm that fact. Her weapon was The Sandman, a Scout melee.

Big Mac was a playable hero as well and he played like the Heavy but with a considerable increase in speed. He only had regular Fists as a melee weapon. His ultimate caused an imediate stun in the opposing team just like Rarity and also applied a defensive buff to his entire team.

Twilight Sparkle's ultimate caused the enemy team to be marked for death which granted mini-crits everytime a hit was landed on them and also caused their outlines to be revealed through walls if you were close enough to the enemy.

Trixie played like the Pyro, her weapons were the Sharpened Volcano Fragment for melee, and a regular Flamethrower for her primary, but with its damage nerfed. Her ultimate was similar to Celestia in the sense that it also caused a steady decrease in HP, but the differences were that such steady decrease was slower, and it didn't drop at 1HP. It killed whoever didn't had a personal Medic or a healthpack nearby.

And to correct my mistake regarding Rarity's ultimate. It was applied to every enemy team member and building regardless of distance.

And also, in the case of Chrysalis, her ultimate caused an instant respawn + speed boost to happen everytime one of her team members was killed.

Pinkie Pie played like the Heavy with a slight speed increase, not Soldier. Another mistake on my part, and her melee weapon was the Holiday Punch, not the regular Shovel.

thanks portugal anon sorry i didn't reply to you
i already know a bunch about pony fortress because i played some of it but thanks for the video and the memory refresh
also i asked if you saved any more images because i didn't save any screenshots when i played it which i deeply regret not doing
but thanks a lot anon i haven't watched any pony fortress videos since 2012 so it was a nice bit of nostalgia
i'll never forget the old custom servers it's a shame we don't have a archive somewhere for them or a place we can still go to play them

Space Station 13 is one of the most autistic and perpetually chaotic games ever made. You're one of up to several dozen crew aboard a fully modular, destructible space station, all trying to work together to get stuff done and not die horribly. Meanwhile, there are random events, powerful monsters and player-controlled antagonists trying to ruin your day. Those are nothing, however, compared to the difficult UI, complex mechanics and general incompetence of your crewmates. Think Dwarf Fortress but multiplayer.

You can download the engine it runs on here: https://secure.byond.com/ (It's not malware, I promise) Once you install it you can join any SS13 server. The engine itself runs about as well as an old jalopy but it allows connection to servers with radically different codebases, meaning nearly every server has its own surprises. Servers's development teams code and implement new elements into the game meaning SS13 basically has competitive evolution.

Here are three videos to give you the gist of it.

SsethTzeentach's (/ourguy/) review: www.youtube.com/watch?v=URJ_qSXruW0
A dramatic re-enactment of the typical first round (in 3D!): www.youtube.com/watch?v=wX7GQT_ZQdA

Kek smiles upon you if you play SS13 because it turns the logic of video game design on its head. It was born in a primitive state in the early 2000's but has been continually built upon by its core community to have more depth and F.U.N. than almost any other game. There is an insane skill-cap due to over fifty areas of game mechanics to learn, meaning even seasoned veterans always discover more. It also means you have to rely on the rest of the crew to do their jobs, resulting in hilarity if when they fail to do so. Absolutely check it out if you can.

I used to play this game religiously several years ago but had to stop due to switching internet providers. It's something I miss dearly but new SS13 content never disappoints. It would be nice to set up a /mlpol/ community, maybe on Discord. If you wished hard enough you could maybe bring ponies into space.

It's been forever since I played this game. I might need to dust it off. I mostly stuck to the goon servers since I found them more fun.

I mostly played as an engineer since it had ~90% of the power of the chief engineer but none of the responsibilities. Just turn on the engine and then I'd have free reign to do whatever I wanted…which was normally converting the engine room into a bomb lab.

Engineers have a lot of power (quite literally, too) and good ones make great traitors. If you know what you're doing you can manipulate the station itself to destroy your enemies. The only problem is getting your hands on directly lethal weaponry. Your best option is breaking into the armory itself. Back when the armory bordered space and before movement-detecting cameras existed I used to do this all the time while "wiring solars."

Science is practically the opposite. You can make all sorts of cool stuff (except for insulated gloves, sadly, but to get those you can put a coin into a YouTool vendor), but are essentially confined in Research. As soon as you step out with a bomb half the station will be all over you. Also getting a space suit is hard unless if the director is a pal.

Every department has its perks and downsides. I've tried them all except security, because my connection forbids me from being actually robust, and command, because you're expected to know the advanced game mechanics and because of whitelists.

I should check this thread more often. To preface all of the following, let me start by saying that 100% of my experience is with goonstation and their codebase.

I loved engineer because of the combination of power combined with an absence of real responsibility and a hefty dose of plausible deniability. You have access to a full suite of tools from the first moments of the game, including accepted access to the coveted insulated gloves, engineering space suits (if they're not stolen first by the rest of the engineers), and access to engineering's pod bay. All that you need to do is setup the engine and nobody gives a fuck what you do for the rest of the round and nobody raises an eyebrow to see you walking through maintenance. The engine room, as I stated before, is essentially a bomb lab. Need to break into a secure area? Detonate a bomb at the target location and a few red herring ones. Then later show up with some scrap metal or the RCD to steal the thing while you patch up the hole. If questioned about your presence, just legitimately say that you're patching the hull breach.

I've never been one for directly lethal weapons. At least in terms of firearms, lasers, or laser swords. They tend to scream "I'm the antag, KILL ME!" My preferred murder weapon of choice is what I like to call a "heat spike" which is simply what I've named an igniter bomb assembly that's been filled with extraordinarily hot CO2. Such a bomb has the odd but useful property of completely gibbing everything within a 1x1 radius. You just utterly fuck over a single tile. Then you just need a means to incapacitate the target for a few seconds to toss the bomb and send the detonation signal. On the more passive end of the spectrum, you can simply loiter in a highly frequented hallway after laying a trap of wet floors or banana peels that have been hidden under garbage like toolboxes or other sprites. If forget precisely how off the top of my head, but IIRC the engine room has its own private terminal that has access the station's rarely utilized mainframe computer. With some know-how you can reconfigure the station's records so that the science lab's guard buddies and officer beepsky will incapacitate the target on sight, and you just need to be sitting around nearby to take advantage of the mayhem. You can be a bit more aggressive with aPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

As for getting a spacesuit, these are my prefered approaches:
*"AI, DOOR!": You'd be surprised how often this works and how often nobody cares.
*"hack the door with wifi": The doors all have unique identifies and will open up if they receive a wireless packet instructing them to open. By installing the packet sniffer/sender programs on your PDA, then you you can hack any door on the station without risk of electrocution or being caught dropping your spagetti with the access panel screwed open. Just innocently bump into the door and the sniffer will catch the door identifier when you bump into it and it flashes its red "access denied" lights. Then craft a packet to open that particular door and send the packet when nobody is around. Sprint in, grab suit, sprint out. Nobody will be the wiser. I don't remember the format of the door packet off the top of my head. I think that the guardbuddies may transmit it when they open doors, so a first thing to try might be following them around with an active packet sniffer. You could also download the last public release of the goon code. Good luck delving into that spagehtti but it's in there somewhere.
*The smelter should, in theory, be able to craft a jumpsuit with the same thermal insulation properties of a spacesuit. Alternatively a jumpsuit tough like riot gear. I've never delved into using the smelter though.
*just emag it: Kinda blatant, but it works.


My favorite syndicate gear are the following:
*Surplus crate: YOLO
*Syndicate ID card
*Chameleon suit
*stealth container(favored disguise is a frosted Donut)
*Revolver. I don't always go loud, but when I do I equip the revolver (this has been buffed and nerfed over the years, so I don't know how good it is these days)
*Emag

Oh yeah, one more thing about the wifi hacking thing. If anyone catches you, then just play dumb and pretend that you simply trespassed when someone else opened the door. You may get strip-searched, but usually they'll just confiscate the space suit and kick you out. Almost no one suspects the signal crafter PDA program as a means of breaking and entering. So long as you're not carrying anything incriminating, people will just thing that you're a shitter instead of thinking that you're the antag.

Speaking of PDAs, you can store it in your ID slot. You can also store your ID inside of your PDA so that you can keep them both in that slot.
