I for one however do miss the old library functions (pulling up and reading classics) and would like to see them back, but that would be up to Johnny and Slither to implement, as it depends on culling the book data from certain online repositories.
That said, fifty thousand chyen isn't really a lot. For the average corpie in middle management, that's one weeks' salary. Being poor sucks.
It could create in-game jobs and a market for people writing those scripts...and could have temporary comparable effects to skill sockets, maybe? Just a thought.
As someone who has always struggled to play a corpie character I have never seen a salary that high, not even half that! Just sayin' ... It also seems that the ability to land a corpie job is more difficult than your regular bar tending / tattoo artist / tailor gig. There is a lot of GM involvement needed to make the position and keep it interesting. I would loove to see something done with SkyWatch or the old tech place that got shutdown ICly after the grid incident.
But I like the idea of StimSim and such... would absolutely love to see that put in game as a job opportunity and rp device. Possible side effects could be something akin to Total Rekall effects. :D
And yes, getting a higher end corpie job is difficult. It doesn't only require effort from GMs but also from the player - it requires motivation, creativity, discretion, guile and overall cleverness yet the overwhelming majority of SD players have mouths so big both ICly and OOCly that one could safely drive a cement truck straight through and out into the toilet.
I'm new so I dunno how it used to sposed to work. But, the Universe wiki, was that connected to the Immy hologram like Wikipedia is now?
I use the Universe wiki outside the MOO all the time. Should I regard what I find there as OOC or IC knowledge? It seems like it was originally intended as IC knowledge, so even though it's not currently available in-MOO, I've been treating it so.
