==[[File:Space.png|32px]] Aurora Caelus==
 +
''A harmless cloud of ions is approaching your station, and will exhaust their energy battering the hull. Nanotrasen has approved a short break for all employees to relax and observe this very rare event. During this time, starlight will be bright but gentle, shifting between quiet green and blue colors. Any staff who would like to view these lights for themselves may proceed to the area nearest to them with viewing ports to open space. We hope you enjoy the lights.''
 +
 
 +
The space around the hull glows with varying shades of green and blue as the ions batter themselves against the station.

==Anomalies==
 +
A random type of anomaly spawns in a random location on the station! These tend to cause bad things if left alone. So hop to it! To neutralize an anomaly, grab an analyzer from a toolbox and a remote signaling device. Scan the anomaly with the analyzer, then send the signal with the frequency shown! This will neutralize the anomaly and leave behind a core, a relatively valuable item to science.
 +
 
 +
The anomalies will move around, so a bit of hunting may be necessary if it happens to stray from its location.

Something of a humorous physics joke, an immovable rod will travel through the station in a straight line causing reasonable amounts of damage to the structure and killing anybody unfortunate to be in its path. They take some time to travel through the station, make an immense amount of noise, and as such are avoidable to players with quick reflexes. They will often open up secure areas, resulting in looting. If an Immovable Rod's path includes the arrivals shuttle, or any of the escape pods, you will find out what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object.

All AIs aboard the station are uploaded with a random, glitched law! These new laws have random symbols for numbers, and thus are listed as the highest priority laws. New AI laws can range from bizarre and humorous to outright dangerous. A few examples include "CARGO REQUIRES THE STATION'S UNDERWEAR," "THE STATION IS HAPPIER WITHOUT VIPERS," and "JOHN SMITH IS A XENO." This sometimes results in someone having to reset the AI.

A plant which spreads extremely rapidly around the station. Space vines will grow thicker with time, first getting thick enough to block vision, then capable of entangling people. You can resist entanglement, but it is safer to avoid the vines. Airlocks, fire doors and windows will stop their growth until someone opens them. If in an open area, the vines will continue to expand until they engulf every space not blocked off!

Revision as of 12:35, 27 November 2019

These are random events that occur during a game regardless of gamemode. They have a relatively low chance of occurring, and are often (but not always) accompanied by a broadcasted message from CentCom. Some may only occur after so much time has elapsed during a round.

Contents

Unremarkable Events

Space.png Aurora Caelus

A harmless cloud of ions is approaching your station, and will exhaust their energy battering the hull. Nanotrasen has approved a short break for all employees to relax and observe this very rare event. During this time, starlight will be bright but gentle, shifting between quiet green and blue colors. Any staff who would like to view these lights for themselves may proceed to the area nearest to them with viewing ports to open space. We hope you enjoy the lights.

The space around the hull glows with varying shades of green and blue as the ions batter themselves against the station.

Minimum round time: 5 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Rare

Security Camera.gif Camera Failure

One or two random cameras around the station will be deactivated.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Extremely High

OrderRequestConsole.gif High Priority Bounty

Central Command has issued a high-priority cargo bounty. Details have been sent to all bounty consoles.

A cargo bounty that will provide a large amount of credits becomes available to complete, viewable on bounty consoles.

Minimum round time: 10 Minutes

Chance of occurrence: Common

Probabilistic Anomaly

A probabilistic anomaly has been detected near the station. Prepare for a distortion of the laws of probability.

An event that breaches the physics of reality and forces the RNG to be stuck on the same value for 2 to 10 minutes. "Random" elements of the game will become static resulting in the possibility of arcade machines dispensing the same reward or disarms always or never succeeding.

Chance of occurrence: Average

Goose.png Random Human-level Intelligence

Based on scans from our long-range sensors, we believe that one of the station's pets has developed very low level intelligence, and the ability to communicate.

Grants a ghost control over one of the station's simple animals/robots.

Minimum round time: 20 Minutes

Chance of occurrence: Average

Dust.png Minor Space Dust

Spawns some high-speed space dust that can break grilles and windows on the edge of the station.

Minimum round time: 0 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Extremely High

Dolphin.gif Dolphin Migration

Unknown biological entities have been detected near the station, please stand-by.

Space Dolphins spawn around the station. Though initially not hostile, if provoked they will swarm their attacker. Alongside the space dolphins are a small chance for Space Manatees to spawn.

Minimum round time: 10 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Above Average

Moderate Events

Anomalies

A random type of anomaly spawns in a random location on the station! These tend to cause bad things if left alone. So hop to it! To neutralize an anomaly, grab an analyzer from a toolbox and a remote signaling device. Scan the anomaly with the analyzer, then send the signal with the frequency shown! This will neutralize the anomaly and leave behind a core, a relatively valuable item to science.

The anomalies will move around, so a bit of hunting may be necessary if it happens to stray from its location.

Bluespace.gif Bluespace

Unstable bluespace anomaly detected on long range scanners. Expected location: [Location].

If left unchecked, it will eventually detonate, warping every object in the area into a random location. Virology may end up in space! Tech storage may suddenly appear in the security wing!

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Low

Electricity2.gif Hyper-Energetic Flux

Localized hyper-energetic flux detected on long range scanners. Expected location: [Location].

If left alone, it will eventually erupt in a violent explosion.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Minimum players: 10

Chance of occurrence: Common

Shield2.gif Gravitational

Gravitational anomaly detected on long range scanners. Expected location: [Location].

Pulls and flings objects everywhere nearby.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Common

Mustard.gif Pyroclastic

Pyroclastic anomaly detected on long range scanners. Expected location: [Location].

Creates plasma fires!

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Common

Anom.gif Vortex

Localized high-intensity vortex detected on long range scanners. Expected location: [Location].

The rarest of the bunch. Consumes objects and creates hull breaches. Nasty!

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Minimum players: 20

Chance of occurrence: Low

Vendcoffee.gif Brand Intelligence

Rampant brand intelligence has been detected aboard the station. Please stand by. The origin is believed to be a [vending machine name].

One of the machine type specified in the CentCom notice has become sentient! If not stopped, it will begin to spread a virus to all other vending machines, causing them to animate and attack anything in sight!

The origin machine can be any of the vending machines on the station, from the soda machine in escape to the cigarette dispenser in the captain's office. It will shout aggressive speech at anyone nearby and launch products at anything in sight. To stop it and prevent it from infecting any other vendors, it must be either deconstructed, its wires all cut, or just simply screwdriver the panel open and flick the speaker switch to off.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Minimum players: 15

Chance of occurrence: Low

Head of Personell.png Bureaucratic Error

A recent bureaucratic error in the Organic Resources Department may result in personnel shortages in some departments and redundant staffing in others.

Randomly sets the overflow role (the infinite slot one, default is Assistant) to any job in the game. You might end up wading in Wardens or drowning in Clowns.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Rare

Carp.gif Carp Migration

Unknown biological entities have been detected near the station, please stand-by.

Space carp spawn around the station. Take care and have a good weapon handy when heading out into space. And watch yourself when around windows!

Minimum round time: 10 minutes

Minimum players: 2

Chance of occurrence: Above average

Atmos Technician.png Clogged Vents

The scrubbers network is experiencing a backpressure surge. Some ejection of contents may occur.

Air scrubbers around the station may suddenly erupt smoke clouds of chemicals and reagents. The chemicals/reagents which may be involved in this event are: plant-b-gone, blood, charcoal, space drugs, morphine, holy water, ethanol, hot chocolate, sulphuric acid, mindbreaker toxin, rotatium, skewium, pax, laughter, concentrated barbers aid, colorful reagent, dizzying solution, tiring solution, salt, beer, hair dye, white glitter, growth serum.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Minimum players: 10

Chance of occurrence: Average

Headset.png Communications Blackout

Ionospheric anomalies detected. Temporary telecommunication failure imminent. Please contact you*%fj00)`5vc-BZZT

Telecommunications goes down temporarily. The crew isn't often alerted of this, but the AI always is. Sometimes confused due to crew incompetence with the Ion Storm, detailed below.

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Chance of occurrence: Very Common

Clown.png False Alarm

Plays a false alarm message for just about any other event. Fun with meteors.

Minimum round time: 20 Minutes

Chance of occurrence: Common

Virologist.png Disease Outbreak

Confirmed outbreak of level 7 viral biohazard aboard the station. All personnel must contain the outbreak.

Get your asses in gear, Medbay! A virus has somehow made it aboard the station. Could be the common cold, could be the confusing space retrovirus, could be the crippling brainrot, or a completely random Advanced Virus.

Due to the similar CentCom alert, expect many confused/dumb crewmen to fill communications with cries of "WHERE'S THE BLOB?" or "LYNCH VIRO."

The longer the round has gone on, the worse the virus!

Minimum round time: 20 minutes

Minimum players: 10

Chance of occurrence: Low

Tube broken.png Electrical Storm

An electrical storm has been detected in your area, please repair potential electronic overloads.

A bunch of lights short out in a general area on the station. Annoying at best. But at least it gives the janitor something to do other than mop blood trails.

Minimum round time: 10 minutes

Minimum players: 5

Chance of occurrence: Common

Apc frame.png Grid Check

Abnormal activity detected in the station's powernet. As a precautionary measure, the station's power will be shut off for an indeterminate duration.

Shuts down all APCs station-wide for 30 to 120 seconds, with the exception of Engineering. Usually leads to station-wide looting once Assistants crowbar open airlocks. Can be fixed early by hitting the APC's "Reset" button.

Minimum round time: 20 Minutes

Chance of occurrence: Average

Gravity Generator.png Gravity Systems Failure

Warning: Failsafes for the station's artificial gravity arrays have been triggered. Please be aware that if this problem recurs it may result in formation of gravitational anomalies. Nanotrasen wishes to remind you that the unauthorised formation of anomalies within Nanotrasen facilities is strictly prohibited by health and safety regulation A: Sub-clause C.

Causes the Gravity Generator to stop functioning, leaving the station without gravity for 80 to 120 seconds. Can be fixed early by turning the Gravity Generator's APC on and off.

Chance of occurrence: Above Average

Immrod.png Immovable Rod

What the fuck was that?!

Something of a humorous physics joke, an immovable rod will travel through the station in a straight line causing reasonable amounts of damage to the structure and killing anybody unfortunate to be in its path. They take some time to travel through the station, make an immense amount of noise, and as such are avoidable to players with quick reflexes. They will often open up secure areas, resulting in looting.

Immquack.png Immovable Duck

What the duck was that?! Something of a humorous DUCK joke, an immovable DUCK will travel through the station in a straight line causing reasonable amounts of damage to the structure and killing anybody unfortunate to be in its path. They take some time to travel through the station, make an immense amount of noise, and as such are avoidable to players with quick reflexes. They will often open up secure areas, resulting in looting. If an Immovable DUCK's path includes the arrivals shuttle, or any of the escape pods, you will find out what happens when an unstoppable DUCK meets an immovable object.

Chance of occurrence: Rare

AI.gif Ion Storm

Ion storm detected near the station. Please check all AI-controlled equipment for errors.

All AIs aboard the station are uploaded with a random, glitched law! These new laws have random symbols for numbers, and thus are listed as the highest priority laws. New AI laws can range from bizarre and humorous to outright dangerous. A few examples include "CARGO REQUIRES THE STATION'S UNDERWEAR," "THE STATION IS HAPPIER WITHOUT VIPERS," and "JOHN SMITH IS A XENO." This sometimes results in someone having to reset the AI.

Ion storms can also cause the order of laws to be rearranged. Have fun with an AI that doesn't have "you may not harm a human" as priority #1!

Even better, Ion storms can sometimes replace laws or even whole lawsets.

Kudzugrowth.gif Space Vines

A plant which spreads extremely rapidly around the station. Space vines will grow thicker with time, first getting thick enough to block vision, then capable of entangling people. You can resist entanglement, but it is safer to avoid the vines. Airlocks, fire doors and windows will stop their growth until someone opens them. If in an open area, the vines will continue to expand until they engulf every space not blocked off!

To fight the vines:

  • Drag a goat, either Pete or one ordered from cargo into the vines. It'll eat any vine it passes into, and even quickly consume them on its own so long as there's any nearby.
  • A scythe from a weed control crate is effective.
  • Plant-b-gone spray from botany and weedkiller grenades from cargo are also good options.
  • Fire will also kill vines dead. Not recommended, as it will also kill anyone unfortunate to be caught around it.
