Hi! Yes, some of the names are spoof names I made very early when I started playing, I didn’t want to change them in case it invalidated any possible recognition some people may have had but once this app is approved/denied they will be changed to less pop culture/meme names I can guarantee that much.
With that being said here are my answers:
1: A mentorhelp comes in: “My HUD is gone.”
A: Answers will vary depending on if it’s all the HUD or only some segments but provided it is all of the HUD I would respond something like this: “Hello! If your HUD is broken I recommend going into the OOC tab top right of your screen and clicking “Fix Interfaces” and “Refresh TGUI”, if your chat window is empty after pressing either of these two buttons please click “Fix Chat”, if the issue still persists I recommend trying to close the Game Instance and reopen it or to reconnect via going into “File” on your top left and clicking “Reconnect”. Additionally pressing “F12” may be beneficial to solve this issue as it will switch HUD modes, just remember to press it one more time if you only see your hands. If none of these fixes work please let me know and we will continue from there.”
2: You’re the senior enlisted advisor, and nothing is happening on the ship, and you have nobody to teach. What do you do?
A: In this scenario where there is nothing to do or nobody to teach it would be beneficial to serve as a pseudo-assistant, what I mean by that is assisting with menial tasks such as corpse transport until something pops up that I can fix or alleviate. If there is nothing else to do even corpse transport for example providing roleplay and thus roleplay experiences might be a beneficial thing to do whilst waiting for something or somebody to teach.
3: There is one lone MP who is trying to keep order during briefing, but order has broken down and marines are borderline rioting. What do you do?
A: In this scenario, it would be best to first inform over MP Radio of this situation, as well as informing command of it if MP numbers are low. Whether to or to not intervene is a dilemma but if intervention is possible without the risk of the MP being harmed/killed and thus myself I would attempt to intervene and hopefully stop the situation. Whomever this may be risky as being SEA I may not have access to MP tools like flashbangs. If I do however have access to non-lethals/flashbangs or have them on me using said tools to help the MP not be murdered would be beneficial seeing as though this is an emergency. Whomever performing policing duties beyond saving the MP is not something I would help with beyond tutoring unless the MP is still in an emergency. This is all assuming I am a SEA watching this happen.
4: The round is four hours in, the CO has been dead since 30 minutes into the operation (he was decapitated by a runner), and the XO has an almost-decrypted nuke sitting in the FOB that is being sieged. The XO orders you to go to the FOB to organize it, control the nuke, and rally the marines to push out to finish decrypting. What do you do?
A: As command is not a strong suit this answer may not be satisfactory but I will still try my best. As this is an order I would follow it, first I would make sure to don combative gear mainly a helmet and vest, and also bring a gun with satisfactory ammo amounts. Once planetside though I would begin with organizing the marines, I would make sure there is at least a minimum of four marines watching each open side of the FOB from where xenomorphs could flank or attack, if there are any leftover marines or a side is particularly overrun (ex: is a frontline) more marines should be stationed over there, if marine numbers are low majority should be guarding where the main combat/frontline is but still have one marine on each open side of the FOB as to serve as a warning signal and defense against potential flanks. In a scenario where there is such low marine numbers and the majority have to be kept on the frontlines to keep xenomorphs out I would at least make sure there is one marine who is patrolling the FOB mainly making stops to unguarded portions of the FOB that could be vulnerable to flanks to at least ensure we are notified if the frontline changes or if there is a flank. If an opportunity presents itself such as a certain section having low amounts of xenomorphs dedicating some marines to push and secure that sector may be beneficial but they should be on an advisory to pull out if resistance becomes heavy. FOB should be held until it is safe enough or an opportunity is presented to push out of it. Additionally, if there is not a marine manning mortar I would have a marine do so unless the area that xenomorphs are seizing cannot be pierced by mortar. If xenomorphs pull back or retreat marines should push and look to secure the area and continue pushing until resistance is met, at which point the marines should hold at that area until it is once again safe to continue. If the nuke is ready and armed during all of this order marines onto the Dropship shortly before the nuke goes off. If the nuke is not armed continue holding and pushing until it either is or xenomorphs are killed. I would also ensure after a push is done to at least make sure there are some marines at FOB such as Bravo to ensure it stays secure. CAS, OBs, and Mortars should be being used during all of this as well.
5: A mentorhelp comes in: “How do I do the inspiring cry? Can I macro it?”
A: “You can do the inspiring cry or as players call it a warcry via typing in “*warcry” in normal chat manually without the quotation marks, whilst this command can be macroed, keybinds for it exists too which may be easier to set up, to set up a keybind go into “Preferences” in the top right portion of your screen and click “Edit Hotkeys” from there search up “Warcry” and bind a key to it. You may macro it as well if you wish to do that instead. If you need any more assistance please let me know.”
6: A mentorhelp comes in: “I can’t nest this guy but I’m in the hive” - the guy in question is currently alive and unconscious from being hugged, and you can see the player in question standing next to a thick resin wall with hive weeds under it, and the KO’d marine is appropriately next to the wall as well.
A: “Hello! First I want to make sure you are trying to nest this person correctly, first, make sure they are grabbed, then simply click the wall with the hand you are grabbing them by as your active one (basically make sure the grabbing hand is selected), this should nest them automatically, if this does not work please try a different wall that is weeded and if the issue still persists please let me know.”
With that being said I do apologize for the player names but again as stated above once the approval or denial of this app is given these names will most likely change as I do understand they are a bit LRP.
