Have any CP's done these rewards?

    "PSYCHO-MECHANICAL REPRODUCTION SIMULATION" and "NON-MECHANICAL REPRODUCTION SIMULATION" are two rewards that are kind of comical when it comes to the idea of them and the fact that the latter actually exists in the official HL2 canon. I want to ask the stupid question, have any Civil Protection units actually done these? And as a plus, do explain what it was like because I'm willing to get a good 7 minute laugh about CP's (or just one CP) doing approved ERP.

    (P.S. if you don't actually know what these are, check the Civil Protection Operational Guide.)

    yes people do them

    I never understood why though. If you want to be a degenerate just slip away into a utility closet or something. All you're doing by redeeming these rewards is broadcasting that you're both a degenerate and want to be bullied.

    I'm guessing there's an obvious positive for OOC. It's a funny event that can occur every once in a while.

    I don't know what you mean by an obvious positive for OOC, it's just an excuse for "legal" ERP.
    last time it happened on CW it gave me an excuse for my character to bully someone so im a fan of it

    but erotically roleplaying with another probably underage man whilst jerking your little noodle though, that's class.

    I think people can do what they want on the server, there's a reason it isn't against the rules. I still reserve the right to find it funny when people spend a month worth of goodie boy points to do something on public broadcast they they could've done anyway if thats their thing

    Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the point of a Rank Leader to set an example for the other Civil Protection forces, if you instead spend your time publically broadcasting your sexual involvement unprofessionally I'll have an easier time taking the piss out of you than following your directives.

    Besides that there's a plethora of other stuff you could be doing. For me it was alcohol redemption. Either way if your thing on the server is to ERP you can still do it just not by putting it on the loud speaker.

    He just seemed to take genuine offense so I adressed it in a nicer way.

    I don't go around seeking people out and bashing them for what they do on the server I respect you as long as you don't go around genuinely making people feel bad or uncomfortable on an OOC level and I don't want anyone to think I do :grinning:

    you get to choose between the following:

    flavor lore for 5 SC
    more flavor lore for 5 SC
    an item for either flavor lore or rp flavor if you ever go off duty instead of just logging off for 10 SC
    restrict someones fun for 15 SC
    afking for 25 SC
    CP-for-a-day for 15 SC
    talk to a CAB about something unimportant (idle rp) for 10 SC
    erp for 100 SC

    4 of these 8 rewards have virtually no substantial use outside of setting your character or flavor lore
    one of these is designed to make another player (if the supplement reduction programme is designed to affect players and not background characters á la family cohesion preservation) starve for a week
    one has actual value (but is overlooked because its as much of a waste of SC like all the others if you're not RL)
    one is idle RP with another whitelist

    and one is erp in a secluded cell where the only time you know about any of this happening is through them say "i want to redeem this"
    Merged:
    i hope this will be merged

    on top of that its adhering to erp rules so even if you 'broadcast your unprofessionality' it's a reward that is often times advertised by dispatch itself

    to me the only excuse to use the erp redemption is so you can drag someone who you'd otherwise not be able to talk to into a cell and share a drink with them or something instead of roleplaying big secks. The kind of roleplay you suggest it might be useful for can be gained in so many other ways except this one just taints your record and public image.

    it doesn't taint your record though
    all it shows is you've worked hard enough to get your dick wet like a red tier loyalist getting the authorized procreation slip

    edit:

    the only "public image" thats being tainted is the one viewed by people who view erp as some evil sinful taboo

    so what you're saying is that it's basically a "I got to have sex" thing

    I get where you're coming from but to me sex is a standard enough thing between two people that putting it on blast just makes you seem a bit sad
