Keaton Howard, (Formerly) Aiden Bashline
Why do you want to become a Mentor?:
Two main reasons! One, I do enjoy helping people. Navigating newbies through the hell that is SS13 and it’s various quirks is something I do often, even without mentor, and something I find very fun and satisfying. Makes a great way to make new friends, as well. It’d also look amazing on my synthetic application if I ever finish my story.
What gameplay areas do you know and which areas are you strong and weak in?:
OT and Research are my weakest areas by far, and xeno i’m a little less familiar on - though I do play queen sometimes. Everything else, I have a decently solid grasp on, from CAS to medical, Engineering to command.
How often are to able to play CM?:
A lot! I have a lot of free time through the week, though recently I’ve really been getting into project zomboid, and like to play it often, so I might play noticably less.
Depends on the top of gun, really. If it’s a smartgun, then you need to open the cover, remove the magazine and do a unique-action to cock it and fix it. With any other gun, firstly, make sure that the gun is loaded. If you shift-click it, it’ll tell you if it’s loaded, along with the safety. If the safety is on, you need to alt-click the gun’s sprite to turn it off. If it’s unloaded - then you simply need to put a magazine in. If it’s a /shotgun/ or any other gun that requires it to be cocked after each time it’s fired, you need to do a unique-action to cock the weapon.
Most of the chems are color coded and pretty self explanator. In no particular order:
Bicardine, Kelotane, and Tramadol are the basic chems. They heal Brute and Burn damage, and provide a painkilling effect respectively. Dylovene is used to purge toxins from somebody’s system, while Peridaxon is used to combat the effects of organ damage. Quick clot helps to slow bloodloss down and negate the effects of internal bleeding entirely for a short period of time. Oxycodone is an /extreme/ painkiller used to pretty much shrug off most injuries, with a low OD threshhold. Epinephrine is used to assist in reviving a patient which almost 100% prevents any heart damage from occurring upon revival. Dexalin is used to treat oxyloss and assist in revival or stabilization of patients in crit. Dexalin plus removes all oxyloss entirely in one tick, then stops working. Inaprovaline also prevents oxyloss from occuring, along with stabilizing the patient and preventing them from getting closer to death. These are all the chems I can think off from the top of my head.
As for 3, that’s something that I cannot personally help with. That’s something you ahelp for.
4, is also something I cannot help with, something they need to ahelp for.
Good answers! I would say for one that if they confirm they have the shotgun your can tell them what the hotkey is now that we have the new hotkey system (or just how to check their hotkeys if you have custom ones and don’t know the default) Good job with the “trick questions”
+1 on this app I’d say
Also just looked at the last app you made and the questions there
would give you a +2 if I could man. Having to do two apps when the first one was good by rights is pretty lame.
+1 from me. You have from what I have seen ceased doing dumb things that would end in notes, or PRs. you also nailed Anclandor’s questions, and have good spread of hours overall. I would say play a bit more of OT and MP if you can as seen by your hours post they would be like the only ones I would like you to play more of but other then that all looks good so far.
Had some great RP interaction with Keaton and I have seen him consistently in alot of different roles. Reliable marine side player in pretty much any role I have ever seen him in. So this is an easy +1 for me.
You are a fantastic player and I have personally witnessed you save squads and teach several new Pvts. I think your character can sometimes(and only sometimes) be a little abrasive to the new guys ICly but I have full confidence that you will be a good mentor. Especially in OOC. +1 +1 +1
I have had no negative interactions with you. You are more then capable of roleplaying and you generally keep a good attitude, or atleast from what I have been able to see. As I said in the other application, easy +1 Your hours are also more then enough to prove your knowledge on the game.
