@idea from Xiao
I think the death script is too long. the descriptions are good, but the pauses are too long methinks. clonging might be, but it's not bad. just death.. yeah.. too long

Yeah that pause is deffinetly needed, especially to help prevent people from 'accidently' stumbling on their corpse after they come out of genetek.
It makes it less trivial, and recreates a sense of loss and reflection well, through the descriptions but also the time it takes.

No, I'm curious here as to what your justification is.
People should only have 3 minutes to be resusitated?
Seems with modern medicine the time should be LONGER, not shorter.
Given, with some of the resisutation techniques in use, the act of resisutation may accualy shorten their life expencantcy instead of reviving them, but that's kinda a different topic.

NIPPLE CLAMPS! yeah!
.. dunno, the whole process, if it ever where to exist seems like it would be horribly painful and physically if not mentally wrenching.
i mean, sheet, they already break your rib cage trying to get your heart beating�
and the death/clone time is perfect to go make oneself a cup of tea. :)
The Death delay serves a number of purposes.
The most important one to me is the cool down period. People get livid as all hell when their character dies. We've had people curse us out in the foulest tongues over death. The second most important to me is being able to dispose of the body. You gotta have time to do these things :)
with all due respect to all involved the remove the corpse thing is.... what was the word?, bulloks?
I one time asked why there was a live person and a dead person who were the same person on adjoining screens. to get a reply of "what's wrong with that?". since then I have realized that there really is nothing wrong with that.
but I have also seen a certan moment recently where someone died, was cloned, and like a week later the body is still there rotting away.
do I have a problem with it? heck no that's how cloning works.
finally this was said:
with no penalty for death other than the loss of their charcater?
oh yeah like the 5 min I spend staring at the death screen is a mcuh greater penality than losing my charcter. I think anyone here would rather watch a 30 min "death play" than auctially die.
I have no problem with it to begin with, but suggestions even if they aren't great (we've all had bad ideas) should be met with a little consideration instead of sarcasm.
that said, I know I will be getting nasty responses form this one so I will no longer respond to this post
*this post is kinda poor so deleate away*
I'm confused: Your saying the removing the corpse thing is BS because you've seen corpses not get removed?
But the whole point of what were saying here is killer has the opertunity to hide the corpse.
Just because you saw one or ten where they didn't dospose of the body dosn't mean it dosn't happen, and that it's not an important thing to take into consideration.
Were it otherwise, people wouldn't have gotten away with some of the outrageous stuff they have, I'm sure.
