TERMINALS & NAMES
Up until now we have been showing the player's name in the employment terminals. This was meta, and with disguise changes allowing folks to adopt new personas and names on a semi perm basis, it was becoming game breaking.
I've made it so the SIC name (your 'real name') shows up in terminals now.
The IC reasoning for this is that terminals are using your SIC to determine your identity.
TERMINALS REQUIRE YOU HAVE A SIC
You MUST have a sic if you want to have gainful employment through a terminal. There exists multiple jobs in the game that are paid directly by an NPC, thus I do not feel bad making this change since it is mostly corps and factions that use terminals, and those folks are expected to have SIC.
SIC RIPS & TERMINALS
If you get a sic rip, your file in the terminal where you work will show up as NO SIC for players. Admin can still tell who you are. However, expect this to have repercussions on your job, because a sic rip is basically like you DYING as far as the city is going.
SIC RIPS AND REINSTALLS
If you get a sic ripped and then get a new sic, the terminal WILL UPDATE TO YOUR NEW NAME. This is an edge case and will not come up much. If you are getting a sic rip and are currently working somewhere, you'll want to let the GMs know if this is going to be a problem. For some folks it won't be a problem. The assumption being that when you show up at the terminal it has a secondary way of detecting who you are and it updates your SIC record and moves forward, however be aware your 'real name' will change on the terminal and be revealed to people.
REAL NAMES AS PUBLIC INFO
We are moving to a world where your 'real name' IE the name you gave when you walked into the city and got your SIC is more and more public knowledge. I think folks should RP this as such, as we will be presenting this information in more and more places as we continue to move away from using the 'display name'.
