    Most of your answers are more or less lifted directly from Dave's post, and it makes it seem like you don't understand the premise and limitations of being a drone. Feel free to apply again in a few days.

    How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? Since previous iteration of T:RP.
    Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Yes.
    What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    • Able to patrol all locations as a single unit. (Excluding known TC establishments.)
    • Behave slow, heavy and single-minded when hunting humans.
    • Show minimal tactical behavior. Such as advancing directly towards threats and unloading on them.
    • Speak with limited 'robot" language, through use of a vocoder.
    • Zero understanding of human behavior.
    What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    • Displays higher understanding than that of the T-600; upgraded CPU.
    • Construction of the model is greatly improved from the T-600 in terms of tensile strength and agility.
    • Able to understand and carry out general tactics, displaying behaviors attributing to ambushing, hiding, retreating, and flanking.
    • Mild understanding of language and human behavior.
    Accepted.

    3) Timezone (In GMT format): GMT-5
    4) Drone Digits: 6085
    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? Almost every day since release, finding time whenever I have any avaliable.
    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Of course.
    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    • T-600s can patrol anywhere solo or in groups as long as they are not actively exploring each individual building looking for people hiding.
    • T-600s can speak simple commands in a vocoded voice such as "surrender", etc
    • T-600s should move slowly and constantly towards their target while firing their weapon. They should fire in bursts to give their target a break every once and a while.
    • T-600s should act slow and heavy, their design does not allow them to run (yet).
    • When you have located your target, s2m them if they're far away, s2k them if they are close, if they are acting without fear, or if ordered by a command unit/admin to do so.
    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone? The T-700 has a more advanced processor, allowing for better tactical functions such as taking cover and self-preserving if the situation looks grim. It is also more protected than its predecessor, which had numerous exposed servos and electronics that were easily damaged/destroyed, which could cause various mechanical failures. Now, important bits such as the ammo storage and limb joints have received more armor, as well as being made of a stronger titanium alloy than the T-600. This new alloy also makes the T-700 quicker, as it weighs less. The T-600's all-titanium chassis is heavier, as well as susceptible to rust over time. T-700s are also made to look somewhat more human-like, with prototype living tissue (in some very rare cases), as well as a reduced overall height (also adding to weight reduction).

    Accepted after revisions.

    4) Drone Digits: 64512
    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? I'd say at least 6-8 years with pauses inbetween.
    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Yes and I will abide the guildines imposed by Dave.
    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600? T600 is considered the Intel Celeron of our century, not being able to handle multi tasking and if attempted probably not ended well. It uses a basic logic function and has little to no self preservation protocols, not being able to even get behind some covers. It basically advances against the victims until one of the parties is dead. It also uses a very simple human language, about three words or so to try and get them to surrender. Does not understand at all how humans work and unable to adapt.
    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone? The 700 is much more advanced in terms of survivabillity meaning if it manages to draw the logic conclusion that advancing would risk it being disabled it would either turn for cover and pull back to get more units to engage the attackers. It is also much more lightweight and the hydraulic hinges give it better mobillity than the 600 while having almost the same damage ressistance due to the advanced endoskelleton. It can also understand human behaviour to a certain degree up to the point where it can even try to lure people into traps and ambush them.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? "Positive"
    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    -Patrolling and terminating all humans on sight do not directly shoot at them unless they are not fearing you, or are to close to miss them. If a human attempt to hid from you, give him a chance and pretend you do not see him.
    -Once you have spotted a human, walk slowly in their direction while S2M is most active.
    -You cannot feel fear or anything else, as well you are simply programmed, so you cannot hide, or dodge an attack unless you been ordered to.
    -Speak with limited vocabulary, similar to the Overwatch units in HL2 "Affirmative, Negative, and more of such robot language even yell at your enemies to surrounder.


    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    -The T-700 are smarter, agile and are less heavy as the T-600. Can understand human behaviour in limited ways, they have the ability to be more tactical by doing surprise attacks or know how to outflank human troops [basic infiltration abilities]. After each match with humans, they can learn more about the behaviour of the human troops or even understand what they are saying.
    They have a better CPU allowing them all of those abilities like learning and thinking in limited ways, even given them a quick report what to do, like when the enemy is too strong to be defeated, the CPU will calculate the chances of winning and losing, so when things get too hot the drone can flee from the battlefield.

    Accepted
    Provisionally. If you are who I think you are, I've noticed some troubling things in server. I'm giving you a chance. Don't waste it.

    6) Have you read the
    Drone RP 101 thread? Yes, I have.
    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    1. Has slow and uneasy behavior when hunting humans as acting simple minded, as not fully understanding the human's actions on first contact.
    2. Is able to use vocoder, which is un-readable to the human's mind; specifically for the use of the Terminator infantry models.
    3. If in sight of an human approaching bearing arms, it unloads a full magazine to disperse them either standing still or moving while firing.
    4. Has minimal tactical experience, in such it cannot perform jumps, sprints (Holding down shift), or if an enemy returns to their outpost to follow.
    5. Is strong enough to repel small rebel incursions on the streets as patrolling alone.
    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    1. The T-700 model has a more intelligent and slightly more tactical CPU than the standard T-600 model.
    2. The T-700 has a more agile chassis which allows it to move at much greater speeds than the T-600 model.
    3. More improved weaponry such as an 30 Watt and 60 Watt Plasma rifle, as well an more improved Terminator minigun rigs.
    4. With an more intelligent CPU than the T-600 model, it comes with a heightened understanding of human language including behavior.
    Denied.
    Most of it seems lifted verbatim from Dave's guide. Doesn't seem like you understand the concept. Feel free to apply again in a few days.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    T-600's are the bulk fighting force of SkyNet's ground force. Slow, tanky and simple, the T-600 is a walking weapon with a lack of combative knowlege, settling for a more typical machine-like approach of walking straight towards the fight spraying gunfire. As a result of their typical 'drone' nature, they aren't sentient and as a result are unable to understand human behavior. T600's often patrol alone or in groups, with a shoot-on-sight attitude unless commanded otherwise by another unit.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    The most noticeable difference between the 600 and 700, other than the slight differences in plating and appearance, is the gap in combat knowledge between the unit types. The T-600 tends to act like a typical 'combat drone', whereas the upgraded T-700 applies a more complex understanding of combat. These understood combat tactics can include ambushes, flanking and even setting up traps. T-700's are also far more agile, allowing them to run in combat unlike the sluggish T-600. In general, T-700's are a full tier in improvement to the T-600. They are faster, more agile, more durable and more complex in their understanding of combat.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    - are allowed to leave the SkyNet bunker / HQ to patrol alone or in groups.
    - slow and single minded behaviour in chasing / hunting down human organisms.
    - doesn't understand the Human behaviour / language.
    - it cant : sprint / jump / speak to humans
    - The T-600 model series is capable of using the Vo-coder but are limited in the robotic language
    - If a human is spotted, walk slowly or stand while shooting at the Human (S2M is mostly active for it)
    - Low CPU intelligence
    - Mostly are equipped with a M-134 minigun

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    In 2018, the T-700 Terminator was mass-produced by Skynet at least in one factory, which is beneath the Skynet Central in San Francisco

    Shortly following the Mission to Skynet Central, the T-700 had become Skynet's primary battle unit having had replaced the T-600 and were armed with G11 caseless-round submachine guns or miniguns. Like the T-600, the T-700 was capable of repairing itself and could function with severe damage to its structure in order to complete its objectives. However, a T-700 could have its targeting systems disabled by piercing the back of the neck just like a T-600 as a T-700 was disabled after being shot in the neck by an arrow. T-700 combat programming is essentially the same as what the T-600 has, which was, in turn, derived from combat programming of the old T-70. T-700s are intend to be combat fodder for front lines, so Skynet never bothered to update their software to take advantage of their advanced hardware. However, their tactical reaction time and ability to coordinate based on this programming is alarmingly more effective than the T-600. They are extremley dangerous opponents.

    Denied.
    While I'd love to have a G11 in server, it seems like a majority of this application was ripped from wikipedias. Feel free to apply again in a few days.

    1) Steam Name: commander

    2) Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:86741576

    3) Timezone (In GMT format): GMT-5.

    4) Drone Digits: 7777.

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? Since late 2016, but took a long break. I wasn't really known at all, and recently just got back into the community for TRP.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? I have, yes.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    1. They are allowed to do simple patrols around the map, alone or not. Hidden resistance locations aren't known to them when passing by. They shouldn't go inside or investigate something unless a hostile force decides to shoot it or damage it in any way.

    2. 600's are to eliminate any threats they see through means of simple advances towards them with the given weaponry. Due to the heavy weight, simple advancing essentially means they walk towards them.

    3. Basic actions in combat and speech, only capable to say things like "surrender" in a weak attempt to trick the enemy. It's nothing advanced, and most people don't fall for this.

    4. Not showing any advanced behavior at all, they're in a way "dumb."

    5. 600s can easily be outsmarted if somebody plays their moves right, especially if hitting the 600 in vital areas like joints or the neck.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    1. 700 drones are more intelligent compared to 600s. Examples being the ability to show better tactics in combat and the ability to organize other drones for patrols, etc.

    2. 700's, compared to the 600's, have a better understanding of humans and their behavior due to the more advanced CPU. It's not /that/ much of an upgrade, but it still shows effective in combat.

    3. Better weaponry like plasma rifles and improved mini-gun rigs to deal damage to the enemy. The plasma rifles especially.

    4. An improved chassis capable of more agile movement, along with improved exoskeleton durability when taking damage, whatever it may be.

    5. The improved CPU, like stated before with better intelligence, gives it more of an ability of self preservation when it comes to dealing with certain situations. "Will this get me killed or not?"

    Accepted.

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? On and off for like 2 years now.
    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Yes.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    The T-600 is a bulky and slow machine where it can only compute a single task, think of it as a really dumb roomba bot that cleans the floor. It's not autonomous, but is programmed with a simple patrol pattern and if it detects any people in the area, it will engage them so long as they're out in the open. Obviously for TnB a T-600 is going to be the easiest bot to fight and should reflect the opportunity for players old and new to engage a tangible, but defeatable threat. Of course, the T-600 is mainly just used for suppression on server and should never be used to actively pull people away from their hiding spots and such. No sprinting, no jumping, no chasing people across the map. Basically, just don't be a dick because we are all here to have fun at the end of the day.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    The T-700 has a few advantages which set it apart from the T-600, the first of which usually being access to a larger quantity of plasma weaponry whereas the 600 is usually fixed with a rotating mini-gun. The 700 also features a much stronger set of titanium alloy plating on its vulnerable positions, most notably being the head. There's also the increased power of the CPU, as well as a fail-safe to prevent Resistance tampering which can be activated to overload and burn out the CPU in the event of a capture (if it has enough power still available). Finally, the 700 is capable of very limited read-write functions and can communicate in a limited fashion with older 600 drones.

    1572

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers?
    I came onto HL2RP every now and then a few months ago, but I left as the server's population dwindled. I've been playing a lot more, now that the TerminatorRP server is open and highly popular. However, I never really showed my face on the forums ever since joining.
    I do believe I understand how the server works to a degree relevant enough to effectively play on the Skynet whitelist.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread?

    Yes, I've read over it several times to accustom myself to the attitude asked of a player with the Skynet whitelist, as well as to ensure the faction rules are things that I can easily recall.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The primary objective of each T-600 is a very simple directive: kill any human encountered. Because of this, the T-600's AI is very limited in terms of capability - lacking any understanding of human behaviour, and the extent of its tactics being the ability to follow standard patrol routes.
    Because the T-600 is not an infiltrator drone - just humanoid in design - self-preservation is not at all an objective for these drones, seeing as their purpose is not to gather information and take part in sabotage over long periods of time. The only self-preservation these drones are concerned about is attempting to destroy their enemy before they are destroyed themselves. When they do encounter a hostile force - no matter the size - they shall march towards it, continuing fire until either they or the humans are destroyed.

    The skinjob's directives are largely the same, only sporting a minorly upgraded AI - the efforts made by Skynet to conceal these drones only being so the drones are able to further close the distance between themselves and human contacts, subsequently increasing their chances of managing to exterminate resistance cells.

    In the server, T-600s - along with any drone - should be played to keep the resistance's players enjoyment prioritized above their own, as outlined in the faction rules/guide. This includes deliberately putting yourself at a disadvantage by S2Ming the majority of the time, and respecting the intents of others, i.e. not opening fire on a player that is clearly and realistically trying to hide from you at the best of their ability, although you may see parts of their playermodel.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    The primary - and most noticeable - difference between these two series of drones is the clear contrast in their abilities as tactical units, and massive upgrade in terms of versatility and general anatomy - the 700 sports a lighter endoskeleton, allowing it to move faster and be more natural in its movements in exchange for the brute force the 600 was capable of putting out. This allows the 700s to act like human guerrilla forces - along with their enhanced ability to use both solo and team tactics - having been proven successful throughout history.

    Another difference between the two series is the weaponry typically used - the minigun is the backbone of the standard 600's human-killing ability, while 700s utilize updated minigun rigs as well as some early plasma weaponry (e.g. 30 watt and 60 watt).

    Linked with the 700's upgraded intelligence level is its infiltration abilities. Although rare to see them outfitted with prototype living flesh, the 700 is more capable of understanding human behaviorism as well as human language, each of which are useful in both combat and infiltration scenarios. The updated endoskeleton of this series also gives the drones a more realistic humanoid appearance - standing at a more realistic height of six foot and being less bulky in appearance.

    The 700 series' inception date is much later than that of the 600 series - twelve years later than the standard 600, eight years later than the T600S, which explains the technological improvements between each series.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Yes.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The T-600 was the first successful humanoid terminator. Since it is the original, it is very, very bulky and weighs a lot more than the newer models. Due to this weight, the T-600 model has a very limited mobility speed. On top of that, it is stunted by a lacklustre CPU. The machine cannot process many things. With this information in mind when roleplaying a 600 model, you have to be on a constant move and patrol around the map in a squad or solo. Be slow in movement and computing powers. No complex movements or attack strategies or tactics. Walk straight towards the enemy with the minigun. You may speak, but limited. You use a vocoder, but simple commands (surrender, etc.). Finally, the T-600 model cannot understand any human behaviours (traps, distractions, lures). Keep in mind the T-600s aren't weak at all though, they are very powerful opponents.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    The T-700 model, one of the newer terminators can display advanced behaviours. Understanding combat, tactics and activities (ambushes, retreats, hiding, flanking). Have a limited understanding of human behaviour and speech. On top of these CPU based upgrades from the T-600 models, the T-700 weighs a lot less. Slightly shorter than the T-600 and have access to early plasma weaponry. They are much more powerful than T-600 units. Not only physically, but their CPUs. They are more adverse to different situations and scenarios.

    Denied.
    From what I've seen in server, I don't think you're ready for a drone. Prove me wrong in the next few days and feel free to reapply.

    Yes.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    IC, the mindset is simple: See human, kill human. The T-600 isn't smart in the slightest, and its vision of tactics is nothing more than walk toward the enemy and shoot lots of bullets at them. It's not going to understand what being flanked means. It's not going to try and cover better angles. It's not going to apply any amount of stealth to complete its objective. These things certainly aren't going to go rogue, and their only vocalizations are going to be prerecorded and token demands of surrender. It's going to walk forward until it wins or until it does.

    OOC, the objective is to provide atmosphere and an entertaining enemy for the human players to fight. I'm certainly not going to develop my T-600 as a character, so understanding how tension works is key to using the T-600 as a tool for other players. It's pretty important to understand who you're fighting and to put up a challenging fight if they start to get too brazen. Gauge who you're fighting, then adapt for what they're doing. Also don't sprint. Should I end up in a roleplay bang bang situation, the armor the 600 series has isn't going to be ridiculous when challenging ballistic munitions. It's the same kind of deal as s2k situations. Gauge who you're playing with, try to make it as interesting for them as possible. It's all collaborative, whether it's a fun bang bang situation or a tense threat going on.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    A T-600 is a single-minded drone without a sense of self-preservation. It's not capable of thought or tactics, and it's going to keep advancing on the enemy until it's dead or it's won. The T-700's got some brainpower in comparison. It's going to be thinking more about preserving itself as an asset and definitely is more capable of doing it from the get-go. T-600 has middling armor at best, while the T-700 is able to resist more than its predecessor. It's more able to run than the 600 series as well between its reduced weight and improved servos, which is a plus in combat situations. Basically it's an "I'm you, but stronger" situation.

    How long have you been playing on TnB's servers?
    I recently got back into HL2RP mid-to-late 2017, joined in on TnB's server (because honestly, what other choices are there?) felt good with it, been sticking with it since. Have been playing the new TRP since launch-day.

    Have you read the
    Drone RP 101 thread? Yes, a couple times over now.

    What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    - Clunky, slow movements. Stick to a simple, routine patrol route and don't bait Tech-Comm. When engaging humans directly, walk towards them while firing your weapon. No sprinting, taking cover or other more advanced movements.

    - Limited to basic vocal commands, no personality or human behavior.

    - Aim like a Stormtrooper. Don't spam the mini-gun, use bursts. Shoot to miss at a distance. Ignore if they're effectively sneaking. If they player is getting stupidly close, shouting in your face, or punching you in the back of the head feel free to blow them away.

    What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    While looking almost identical, T-700 is more advanced than the bulky 600s in just about every way. The 600 series where equipped with primitive CPU's that could only spout the most base forms of verbal commands, and no behavioral learning abilities. Holding it together is very durable, but extremely heavy combat chassis components which makes it slow, but it can eat several mags worth and still be standing. Some few sport a cheap rubber outer layer in the semblance of human skin, or masses of rags which is only convincing from a distance at best. The 600 is usually issued with a standard arm-mounted mini-gun and sometimes heavy man-made weaponry for a tad more convincing infiltration.

    The 700 series comes equipped with a more advanced CPU enabling it to perform more combat-smart, using tactics like flanking, setting traps, finding cover and determining the weakest point in a defense structure but sadly it's behavioral learning capabilities still have much to be asked for. The chassis is a foot or so shorter in height than the 600's and is made with a lighter alloy giving it a nice chrome look, as well as enabling it to sprint at fantastic speeds and preform more agile movements like jumping and vaulting over barriers or climbing through a window to get a surprise edge on the enemy. The downside of this, is that topples more easier than their older counterparts. This however, is easily made-up with a sense of self-preservation. Very few can be seen with early iterations of vat-grown human flesh over their endoskeletons, coupled with more advanced speech capabilities making it a bit less easy to spot from another human being. The average 700 unit is seen with a more upgraded mini-gun and occasionally early-version plasma weaponry.

    2) Steam ID: will get

    3) Timezone (In GMT format): GMT-5

    4) Drone Digits:3423

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers?: I've been with the TnB community for four-five years now, I originally started on HL2.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread:? Through and through, yes.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The standard protocols of a T-600 are pretty straight forward, a clunky well-defined enemy to provide a theatrical enemy for the human resistance. They are a one-tracked minded infantry soldier with one objective: To kill humans. They are mostly used as a tool for development for other characters on the server, as said in the thread, an actor for a movie. They're bulky and have very basic combat knowledge. They walk forward and shoot until the target they have locked onto has been killed, or escaped. They are easily flanked and out maneuvered by those who know what they're doing. However, they aren't anything to take light as it still is a terminator. They have simple patrol routes. Meaning they do not search crack and crevice and generally patrol the streets unless lured.

    The T-600's are not invincible either, but they can take a pretty amount of damage before they do go down.


    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    The difference between a T-700 and a T-600 drone is upgraded thinking, better common sense, and more importantly, the ability to adapt to the current situation, primarily being a combat situation. While mostly light adaptability, it can be a factor between winning or losing. Meaning knowledge of taking cover, retreating if the odds are stacked against them. Flanking, and using tactics. Communication to other drones and serving as a command drone in some cases. The upgraded chassis of the drone provides them the ability to run, while keeping the same, or even more armor than the clunky T-600. They are an upgraded version of the T-600 and a formidable enemy to the human resistance. They are sometimes seen with plasma weaponry or even an upgraded minigun. They are usually seen patrolling with a group as the head, or alone.

    While they are an upgraded unit, they still hold the same theatrical job as the T-600. Threat level should increase if one was spotted within a patrol. And will give whoever is on the opposing side a run for their money. Provoking more thoughtful approaches of attack.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? yes and ill probably keep using it for reference when im on server anyway

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    patrolling alone or in groups, with simple parameters to shoot on sight against anyone - or anything - not skynet. probably able to take someone captive if the orders given from a higher up. with a lack of self-preservation players are expected to keep advancing until theyre dead or the enemy has pulled back elsewhere. without ripping off the rp guide too much the summary is more or less "they're robots, they're simple, and they'll shoot anything that looks like a human".

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    barring the general upgrades to their armor and other more complex mechanics like servos and the like their "tech" so to speak is a lot more advanced, making them a more formidable opponent in a firefight. instead of just walking forwards like a chump they can start pulling off the same tactics as TC do to 600s sometimes; ambushes, flanks, routing, etc. the introduction of some new definitions of what can be considered 'human' behaviour probably helps attribute to these things as well.

    Well uh, I know the servers for 2 years and I played on them before but without a forum account. Stalker and HL2RP mostly. Now I went into Terminator Roleplay and I'm enjoying the game mode and the gameplay.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101thread?

    Yeah, I did. I did it for a couple times to understand it better.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The T-600 is the most common drone you will find. They are allowed to leave the Skynet headquarters. T-600 drones are permitted to engage the patrol protocol in a group or alone. If a T-600 drone spots any target then it will lock onto it and walk to it with the intention to terminate. It will hold its position or walk against it while using the M-134 Minigun. It walks in one direction and can't run or jump around like newer models. The T-600 drone is a slow and single-minded drone specialized to hunt human organisms down. Once it detects a human it will lock onto it and engage. T-600 drones are not experienced with the human language or human behavior. T-600 drones are equipped with a VO-Coder to respond to orders or alerts. It will speak in limited robot language to communicate with Skynet drones. The M-134 Minigun has an ammo limit. T-600 drones will fire in bursts to fight in an efficient way.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    The T-700 drone is an upgraded version of the T-600er series. It has armor upgrades and improved speaking abilities. It is more intelligent and much stronger than its previous series. The T-700 drone has the ability to flank and ambush targets, not like the T-600 drone which walks in one direction with the intention to eliminate the target. T-700 drones are able to use combat tactics to eliminate their targets in an easy way. The movement has been upgraded for the T-700. It has the ability to run to its target. The weaponry of the T-700 series has been improved. It uses weapons such as plasma rifles.

    4) Drone Digits: 5467

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? Two to three years with a few breaks here and there.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Yep. I plan on keeping it on hand as well, just to give myself an aid if I need it.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600? S2M when engaging the enemy (Unless a leader in SkyNet tells you otherwise) and a severe limit on tactics you can use in S2K. S2RP is ill-advised, but if the need arises the 600 should be treated as a big, dangerous, and dumb machine with the intent of killing humans. The 600 was never designed to be able to interact with human beings, so vocal commands and understanding of human behavior is extremely limited. S2K tactics prevent the player from seeking cover, coordinating too much with other drones, or self preservation. Patrolling should be limited to roads unless a leader in SkyNet clearly tells you to patrol elsewhere, and admin approval is required to go into Resistance bases or near them, for that matter. Baiting players should be ignored if they're trying to lead you into the base, even if it's frustrating to let them go.

    Most importantly, constant OOC communication with the leaders of SkyNet and a mindset of letting yourself lose is vital to playing a 600.


    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone? A 700 unit has a far better understanding of human psychology and behavior then the 600 unit, and in S2K they're given a lot more leeway on what tactics they can use. They aren't supposed to go crazy, but they are much smarter then the 600 series, giving the player much more freedom in how to conduct themselves ICly and OOCly in S2K.

    A 700 unit has the potential to do basic infiltration, but their behavior doesn't seem remotely human on close examination and thus, they're extremely easy to detect. Dogs, conversation, or a standard infiltrator check would probably give it away. A 600 drone can't do anything like that; They're loud, stupid, and cumbersome, and wouldn't get close without giving itself away. The only 'infiltration' a 600 can do is look somewhat like a human figure at a distance with a skinjob, though a trained eye can easily tell the difference.

    The 700 is also more resistant to firearms thanks to the improved alloy they're made up of. A 600 can withstand some impressive firepower as well, but they'll crumple under plasma fire far faster then a 700 would and their alloys aren't as refined as a 700.

    A standard T-600 is dumb but devastating. When engaging an enemy you are to engage them via S2M, unless advised otherwise or the player is acting foolish and fearless. There is also a standard engagement range for S2K if I remember correctly. 600's are clunky and slow, so running is out of the picture during engagements. As stated early, they are relatively stupid machines, attracted to sounds like breaking glass, or heat signatures like flares, or even sound(See RGB/Scone's little gambit of RP). These are the most basic terminators around, outdated and cannon fodder. They act on order and protocol, with little else driving them. Also! Be sure to give benefit of the doubt to those making an effort to hide in situations. Create a terrifying atmosphere, not a disruptive one.
    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    A series 700 is capable of many more feats than a 600. 700's are capable of taking command in combat situations, relaying simple commands to lower level AI like the 600's, but nothing too special. Commands of 700's are limited to such like "Flank this way, take this route, stop here, form up in this way, patrol here." 700's have a better endoskeleton 600's, and their CPU's are capable of simple understanding and aren't likely to fall for the tripwire traps that could easily fool a 600. Along with this comes better weaponry, and an increased threat level. The 700's are an obvious newer model, hence the 700. They are an improvement on most flaws of the 600, making it a more efficient fighting machine, as well as more durable. A 600's servomotors are lackluster and outdated, rendering it a tall, hulking mass of metal with a big gun. 700's are somewhat agiler and capable of even climbing ladders. 600's are like an Itanium 2 processor and the 700's are like an i5, to say the least. Better, but not the best.

    I have.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    600's are dated, single-minded tools. Standard operating procedure for these guys is to roam by their lonesome or in a pack: exterminating any lifeforms that they come into contact with. They aren't capable of much more than rushing a target, or capturing if specifically ordered to do so. This often leads to an abrupt deservicement as they walk into hails of gunfire with no regard for their own preservation. It's common courtesy to S2M when engaged, as one would presume. Don't expect anything crafty since 600's aren't capable of adapting or counteracting deployed tactics.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    In comparison to the 700, the 600 is an inferior model. They're incapable of the complexities that a 700 can perform, such as analyzing the enemy's moves or ambushes/retreat. This difference in behavior is an obvious and drastic factor in combat: objectively placing a T-700 as a greater threat, even by it's lonesome. A T-700's weaponry outclasses that of the 600's with their usage of an improved minigun and plasma weaponry. The typical T-600 only uses a lesser minigun.

    There's also a present difference in armor: T-700's being manufactured to be more durable and maneuverable while 600's possess a weaker endoskeleton and far less maneuverability. In short, the standard T-600 is made to act as mass-produced grunts while T-700's are an, in comparison, refined and cherished product.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600? You are playing a mindless drone. You stick to your standard patrol routes until you either spot or are engaged by something to bring you off of that path. At this point you take up your role as an action movie enemy. You fire around your opponent as you close in and make it more dramatic by firing at things like cover, breakables or ammo boxes they may try to go for, giving them the chance to either defeat you or run, yet if they fail to do one of those you at then point start actually firing for them in order to force a reaction.
    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    The T-700 is a newer style of drone. It is less bulky and more refined than it’s sixer counterpart. Even it’s weapon is lighter with the usual mini gun being replace more often than not with a plasma rifle. This quicker bot also has better situational awareness with the ability to make use of cover and basic tactics by relaying orders to the older bots around it.

    Same as Raklo. Expand on differences. PM me when I should check it again.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The T-600 are mass-produced canon fodder, if your typical canon fodder was a minigun wielding death machine. Dumb but scary, slow but dangerous, T-600 typically roam the streets either alone or in groups as a patrol and hunt down the remaining survivors of humanity. They generally will be found following after the sounds of explosions, gunfire, anything that might catch their attention- And using their rather basic programming to check for targets and, well, terminate them. Alone, they are dangerous, although their slow reaction times may lead them to be at a disadvantage against groups. But together, they can truly be a dangerous foe and regardless are something humans should avoid unless prepared for a Rough fight. Tough, old, and built to last, their protocol is to Patrol, Protect, and Terminate. Nothing less, nothing more. Rough fight.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    T-700's are where the Terminator menis goes from "This is dangerous if we're not together" to "We truly are at war". While T-600's have generally slower reaction times, basic programming and generally function as your basic point-and-shoot bot, T-700 are all that and more. They are faster, smarter, quicker, and aren't going to follow you into a dark alley with a minigun and walk directly into your trap. They understand the basics of human speech, they understand basic tactics- They are the fighters on the frontline and they show it. They should be feared in groups, and not engaged unless you're ready for a serious fight.

    Accepted.
    Grammar a little iffy in some parts. Good over all.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    T-600s are very unintelligent. They are heavier and more durable to an extent than T-700s, but lack speed and tactics. The T-600 was the first mass-produced humanoid drone, and layed the groundwork for the infiltrator units to come. A varient, the T-600 Skinjob, was SkyNET's first attempt at an infiltration unit, however it was largely a faliure due to the unconvincing nature. The T-600 was tall and bulky, only covered with poor imitation rubber skin and scraps of clothing. You are to S2M or Shoot To Miss at almost all ranges, only to aim when it would be absurd to miss or when players act without fear. S2RP or Shoot To Role Play should be kept to smaller groups so as to avoid confusion and tedium. Suppressive fire is encouraged, but fire in short bursts to allow some movement. You should not use cover or flanking tactics, essentialy moving forward and absorbing damage. As a T-600, you can not sprint, and should move like a machine. Unless ordered otherwise, you are allowed to patrol the wastes, of course being mindful of resistance bases such as the subway, and to not return over and over after being destroyed. You have extremely limited speech abilities via vocoder, but usually stay silent. T-600s can not comprehend human behavior or learn. You are a support character, an antagonist for the humans to fight, and will lose almost every battle. Do not expect to win often.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    The T-700 is more intelligent than the T-600, able to use simple flanking tactics, and running short distances if needed. They are less bulky and shorter than the T-600, possessing a very rudimentary learning capability. While the T-700 is in some aspects stronger and more durable than the T-600, the 600 can often absorb more raw fire and punishment. Smarter and more agile than the T-600, the T-700 is sometimes used as a field command unit leading groups of T-600s as they have limited leadership abilities They utilize plasma weaponry in addition to the standard minigun rig.

    Accepted after revisions.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    T-600s when they first emerged on the streets would've been a terrifying sight to behold, not least in the cases of the ones who were draped in rubber skin - those ones might have even fooled some people in the dark just long enough to get within killing range - at which point they were then exposed to the wrath of a 7.62mm chain gun or (later on, at any rate) early plasma weaponry. Not to mention that they're incredibly strong, capable of feats of strength that would break a dozen men without risking damage to their own chassis.

    But the fact remains that they're slow, heavy and basic in terms of programming. A cautious observer can spot/hear a patrol coming from a distance before they're even in a bot's sights and even if they do come into view, the standard response is either two advance on it (with no regard/awareness of its own wellbeing or spacial hazards) or to lace the target with suppressive fire (again, inaccurate and easy to avoid if one gets out of cover).

    It's easy to outrun/outmanoeuvre them and, assuming one isn't a complete and total idiot, outwit them - from experience, someone who wanted to distract them could either throw a bottle (or even a rock) to clear them out of an area, or take a few potshots to draw them away (again, a tactic used under pressure). Plus, they don't have an understanding of human behaviour beyond the bare bones required to function which even then is limited and can only communicate in simple orders, ie - SURRENDER - MOVE etc.

    And from an OOC perspective - it's basic common courtesy to respect someone roleplaying stealth/hiding with a wide margin of generosity, given the simplistic programming of the T-600. Same goes for S2K/S2M/S2RP, don't be a dick.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    Aesthetically, T-700s are more compact and less bulky in comparison to their older counterparts - but this is in no sense a weakness/disadvantage. Rather it's more a sign that SkyNET's gotten more efficient with the newer series - and so a good number of the design flaws inherent with the T-600 (both from a hardware and a software perspective) have been amended. For one, they're faster - not necessarily capable of sprinting, but not consigned to a slow walking pace as the sixers are. Additionally, their endoskeleton is reinforced compared to the preceding sixer series and can take more damage - and they'll be seen equipped with plasma weapons more often than the sixers will.

    But where the 700 really shines in comparison to the 600 is in terms of programming - where a 600 will charge head on into a situation, tanking damage (even to catastrophic effect) and walking into traps or killzones a 700 is more likely to use tactics such as ambushing, flanking, sniping etc and understands the concept of self-preservation, so instead of walking into that alleyway where there is a fireteam of TC waiting with plasma rifles it might take an alternative route to try and avoid getting so easily destroyed. They're smarter and harder to outwit - where a broken bottle or a thrown stone might cause a 600 to deviate from its patrol and leave a gap, a 700 may respond to further attempts at distraction with suspicion, maintaining position and so forth. They also have a better understanding of human behaviour and phrases which, again, can be attributed to the superior programming.

    YOU WERE ALREADY ACCEPTED AND ROSTERED NUMBNUTS.

    Glad to have you bud

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread?: Naturally
    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?: Patrol around the area and search for Humans. When a Human is found, engage the target (S2M) and walk towards them. I have no life preservation so the idea is to walk in a direct line to the target. Being clunky and primitive (compared to a more advanced model, such as a T-700), Im by no means fast and cannot sprint towards a target under ANY circumstances. If I recieve orders from a 700, those orders take priority over anything I maybe doing currently. My job is in essence, make the players afraid and to be intimdating, not to murder them all via S2K.
    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?: A 700 is waaaaay more light, compact, smart and stronger. They boast better weaponry then a 600, having basic energy weapons and a more advanced minigun. A 700 has very slight preservation protocols and a more advanced, but still basic, AI that allows it to think slightly better then a 600. This is significant when the 700 can organize a squad of 600s, albeit not as well as an 800. 700s can use actual tactics, and are lighter, this allows them to sprint however they do not normally do so. They are tougher and overall better then the base 600.

    Accepted. Provisionally.
    I've seen very little of you. What I have seen left a bad taste in my mouth. I'll give you a chance, but if I get complaints, you're out.

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers?

    I've been playing since 2011, so around 7 years give or take.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread?

    Of course!

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    In Terms of Server Regulation which must be abided, the standard protocols when operating as a T-600 are as follows:

    T-600s are slower, more basic models, outfitted with a heavy metallic chassis to resist most small arms fire. Server and Roleplaying protocols dictate that unless otherwise notified by a leading unit or server admin, all T-600s are authorized to 'patrol' the surrounding area, either in groups or alone. However, it is expected that the player playing the T-600 does not wander in areas that are heavily used by Tech Coom or refugees. Unless it falls within the category of human's acting 'fearless' towards the T-600 or deliberating acting unrealistically, it will be considered 'baiting' which be addressed with either a verbal reprimand or a strike.

    Although the T-600 is equipped with a minigun that has unlimited ammo, it would be polite and appropriate to fire in short bursts, in order to give the enemy a chance to either engage or retreat. Should it be possible, the T-600 will pursue the target with a singleminded goal- to isolate and neutralize the combatant. They are slow, heavy, and have the easily exploitable method of walking directly towards while using their armament for suppressive fire.

    Since T-600s are not as 'new' as the more advanced series of the T-700 (but more so with the T-800), their vocalizations mainly extend to commands, orders, confirmations, and notifying nearby units of structural damage of the reporting drone. To further note, their age and the gradual slide into obsoleteness (but still heavily used as they are easy to build and maintain) are again displayed by their lack of understanding of human behavior. That is to say, they are susceptible to be tricked, trapped, misled, ambushed, and otherwise be put at a disadvantage when encountering multiple hostiles.

    To further reiterate the server's goal of bringing back that 'action movie feel,' drones are expected to shoot to miss and act realistically and with purpose. Every motion of the drone must have intent, whether that be defending a position, attacking a target, or relocating to a secondary objective as teamed by a lead unit or server admin.

    The T-600 must be aware that they will lose. A lot.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    The Series T-600 drone was one of the first steps SKYNET undertook to produce a humanoid combat model, moving away from the less bipedal, less effective hunter-killer series. Current models still in use are outfitted with a heavy chaingun, with the current ballistics and smokeless powder weaponry it utilizes allowing for ease of access and mass production prior to Plasma Tech. Although not only was the T-600 utilized for combat, it was also an early and experimental infiltrative unit, outfitted with a rubber or latex 'suit' or 'mask' and heavy clothing to give it an appearance of a human from a distance. However, due to the T-600's failure to recognize and emulate human behavior, as well as the poor quality 'skinjobs,' it received, most stealth operations or infiltration abilities were limited or ineffective at best.

    With the introduction of more advanced models, as SKYNET learned more about the human adversaries it was facing, the T-600's CPU again showed it's age. It had limited to no sense of self-preservation, was restricted to basic commands, and only notified other drones in barebones code and system outputs. It was otherwise 'primitive' when compared to the growing combat effectiveness of the T-700, and vastly so with the introduction of the T-800 series.

    The T-700 was SKYNET's next attempt at drone development in order to better carry out the mission of human extermination and submission. It was slimmer, agiler, and possessed a more advanced CPU that improved upon the faults that plagued the earlier T-600 series. The CPU of the T-700 allowed it to be more effective in engaging enemies, stemming from the result of SKYNET's study and research on human tactics in the time prior to the 700 series development. The T-700 also was equipped with the beginnings of Plasma Tech, and as a result, was less (but still very) susceptible to the high energy blasts that came from stolen equipment possessed by Tech Comm and others. The years that led up the T-800 were the results of taking the best of the T-600's defensive capabilities and brute strength and the T-700's ability to adapt to the ever-changing environment of the war. It would inevitably lead up to the production of a nigh-invincible, highly lethal series.

    The T-800.

    Accepted.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? I have, and will obviously continue to brush up on subjects I am unsure of.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    Considering the T-600 is a very simple-minded creature, it has one goal in mind, and that's to eliminate any humans. It doesn't attempt to bargain, strategize, or even bother retreating when damaged, it just continues trying to terminate it's target. That being said, a T600 can go ahead and give basic orders to humans, although the outcome usually is the same, orders are things like, SURRENDER and such. Either way, I've seen enough drones patrol around and have experienced enough combat with them to understand their mind of thought, and reinforced with my reading of the Drone RP 101 thread, patrol areas, don't hug the Tech-Comm base, scan, give lenience to those trying to hide, act like a robot in the movies. Give the humans a good foe to fight and seek out, something predictable.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    Well, the drones, for one, are labeled in consecutive numbers, the 600 Series being one of the first Humanoid drones, designed to be able to follow humans into areas designed for humanoid creatures, though not designed to be light like a human, or act and fight like one, just to be the same size as one. As a result, it's very limited in it's capacity for tactics and communication, instead opting to fight side-by-side other T-600s to maximize effectiveness.

    Post war, once all of the Humans were eradicated enough to make them scarce, T-600s began encountering problems fighting them because of their simple-minded nature, as a result, when there were no battles to fight with massive quantities of bots, they stopped producing them in mass, opting to instead use them to patrol for humans. However, humans at this point could hide in areas, unpredictable, so now Skynet had a new problem to face, when a patrol Unit is walking about and is engaged in contact with random resistance, they need something to give the humans a real fight, something that could last longer than the average drone. The T-700, a drone with basic strategic capabilities, as well as the ability to process human behavior, even the ability to retreat. This makes them more deadly, and more like a human, making them deadlier, not just a simple drone at this point, but a real problem to deal with.

    The app started out well, but the second bit completely lost me, and left me feeling like you couldn't accurately depict the differences between the two series. Feel free to reapply in a few days.

    Better than the first time, but it's still got a ways to go. Spend some more time on the server, develop a human character, and just get more experience under your belt. Feel free to give it another shot in another week or two at the least.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? Of course.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600? Standard protocols for T-600s are very basic. Possible abilities are limited to slow movements, dumb behaviour, and a very very limited range of communication ("Human, surrender," via a vocoder, etc..) Your role as a terminator is to create an atmosphere.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    T-700's have a slightly improved capability for fighting. They have the ability to use cover, retreat, and take advantage (to a very slight degree) of potential vulnerabilities opened up by their human opponents in combat.

    Denied
    Elaborate on both of the questions. As it stands, I don't feel like you understand the role Skynet plays on the server. I also don't particularly need proof of how long you've been at TnB (although it's good to know). That never really makes or breaks a decision.

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers?: At least since 2011, but was playing sometime before that. I remember having to remake this account for the new forum in 2011.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread?: Yes.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The standard protocols for operating as a T-600 from an in-character perspective are foremost, put simply, to engage human life and destroy it. This is the root behavior of this particular model of terminator, and is incapable of higher functions, such as preserving its own life. It is armed with a 7.62 caliber minigun, capable of delivering a massive amount of firepower in a general direction. The benefit of a T-600 over previous SkyNet drones is that it is smaller, and capable of maintaining a lower profile. It fits the same basic shape of a human, but maintains an intimidating presence with its height and metal body, aside from its faux skin counterparts. Keeping that in mind, it is a very heavy machine, so any premise of speed or agility is out of the question. Along with these benefits and detriments, is its use of computer assisted speech, however, it is limited to basic orders.


    From an out-of-character perspective the standard protocol of a T-600 for use in our RP is to be a frightening, formidable, but most importantly, an entertaining metal punching bag with no real goal of absolutely destroying every single threat. With that being said, the RP involved for the drone, should make it seem as if it IS an unstoppable hulking machine hell-bent on destroying life. The best tool for that job is the minigun equipped to the T-600, although while unlimited, shall be used as a show of force more than anything. The understanding of the drone is basic as we have established, so when sighting a human it will put up a fight, but if it should turn into a game of hide and seek, this machine would most likely lose every time given the RP was satisfactory on the human's part.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    The main comparable difference of the T-700 to the T-600 is the 700's vastly advanced ability to engage and destroy humans. When you look at them side by side, it's impossible to see any qualities that an improvement wasn't made with the newer series. To start, the endoskeleton of the T-700 is lighter, while at the same time being able to receive more punishment than the 600's. The lighter frame allows it to maintain a faster speed and a lower sound profile over the previous model. As well, it keeps the same if not a more physically intimidating presence due to its increased armament, with the addition of plasma based weaponry. Finally, the most important distinction of the 700 over the 600 is not its physical traits, but rather its significant software and computer hardware upgrades. The 700 model is capable of the processing of events and apply counters to them. This allows it to make maneuvers and formulate reactions to attacks, all to more easily eliminate higher numbers of humans than a T-600 in the same situation could.

Slow, dumb and a very basic understanding of combat tactics aside from "Point front towards enemy and kill". T-600s are slow and lack understanding of human communication. Purely reverting to orders and commands. T-600 doesn't have much self preservation and it's pure goal is to kill or die doing so. The standard Drone Protocols apply too such as shooting to miss, moving slowly and trying to provide immersion for everyone involved.

    Being one of the first mass produced T's the tactics, or lack thereof, they used weren't exactly spectacular. The primary roll of a T-600 is to hunt down and kill humans. T-600s may patrol in small groups but cannot "work together" per say. They can leave the base together and keep up with each other but must follow pretty much the same tactics, ie: No flanking, Ambushing, Hiding.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone? T-700s have a deeper tactical understanding and a better ability to read situations and develop a plan of attack. T-700s may chose to make a tactical withdrawal in order to self preserve. T-700s may also use things like cover and concealment in order to ambush and surprise their victims. T-700s can also outflank and out position their opponents whereas the T-600 doesn't have this function to the same degree.

    The T-700 is also more of a stepping stone to the T-800, having more advanced integrated systems that allow it to use the more advanced tactics mentioned above. Just having a T-600 on you is pretty terrifying but then you've got a T-700 and it's beginning to perhaps outthink you because of exhaustion, mental stress or perhaps just going full brown alert then that's an extremely scary thought.

    Accepted.
    I'm sorry I forgot about you.

    Just an FYI.

    It's gonna take me a little bit to process the most recent apps. The next few days are gonna be pretty hectic, and school takes priority.

    Please be patient, and thank you. This goes for support division apps too.

    e. okay i went ahead and did the apps anyway but my point still stands

    1) Steam Name: Prezy (Sometimes : Bobby Goodman or KFC Manager)
    2) Steam ID: STEAM_1:1:55956015
    3) Timezone (In GMT format): GMT +1 (Germany)
    4) Drone Digits(ex: 1234): 1911
    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers? ( More then one week )
    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? ( Yes, i have read the Drone RP 101 thread, i will sometime read it more to understand it better in the future! )

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?
    The T-600 model is the most common drone you will ever find in the Future war, the t-600 is allowed to leave the SkyNET buker / HQ to patroll on it's self or in a groups. When a T-600 spots a target, it will lock onto it then attempting to terminate it with the weaponry it currently has. The T-600 model is mostly equipped with a M-134 Minigun or with a somesort of laser weaponry that is not so accurate (The M-134 minigun will have a ammo limit ), some T-600 have been equiped with grenade launchers on the left arms but is rarley seen with that type of equipment. The T-600 model has a slow and single minded drone to hunt down Human Organisms. There are T-600 with rubber skin but they are still the same model. The T-600 has a low CPU intellegence to understand the Human language and its behaviour, its also equiped with a Vo-Coder to respond or to alerts it will have a a limited robotic language to cummnicate with other T-600 or different types of drones that exists. The T-600 drone has a basic combat protocol to fight in a effective / efficient way as possible to terminate the Human threat.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?
    The T-700 model is an advanced version of the T-600 model series. It has a much higher CPU intellegences, it will understand the Human behaviour and the Human language. The T-700 will be much more stronger and obviously smarter then the T-600. The T-700 is has more combat tactics for examble flank or ambush targets, while the T-600 drone walks in one direction with a will to terminate a human target, in that case the T-700 drone is able to use verious types of combat tactics to terminate a target with ease. Its equipment is more advanced then the T-600s it will mostly use a Laser Rifle then a M-134 minigun and its movement speed is upgraded so it can run at its target or to escape a human ambush if necessary

    ( Just as a quick note, i made a T-600 app before and got denied.. this will be my second app, i hope it is good )



    Pending - This is an improvement from your previous application, however, I want to iron out a few points with you personally, and I understand there is a language barrier; a good attempt nonetheless. Please PM me at the earliest opportunity @Abaddon - Abaddon

    1) Steam Name: Alfa

    2) Steam ID: STEAM_0:1:45583532

    3) Timezone (In GMT format): -6 GMT

    4) Drone Digits(ex: 1234): 4512

    5) How long have you been playing on TnB's servers?: As far as I remember, back into 2014 when I first started. I'm pretty aware of most customs about TnB and RP in general.

    6) Have you read the Drone RP 101 thread? I have, and will obviously continue to brush up on subjects I am unsure of.

    7) What are the standard protocols when operating as a T-600?

    The T-600 is a lumbering beast of metal designed to kill humans. However SkyNet doesn’t really know where the humans are, so instead, they send these drones out into the streets to try and find and eliminate humans. However, because of this objective, as well as the obvious advantages you have whilst playing as a T-600, or any drone-series really, there is a basic operating procedure on how to play, while making the experience fun for humans. As a patrolling bot, you do not want to do several things. 1) Never hug any known resistance base, or in that case seek action, or to bait. You’re supposed to provide ambiance for the Human Resistance, not to actually slaughter them all. 2) Give leniency to those who are obviously trying to hide from you. T-600s aren’t smart, and the Source engine is incredibly hindering if someone wants to avoid a battle, don’t give it to them. 3) Do, not, sprint. You’re a lumbering beast of a machine, moving quickly is basically impossible, therefore you must move at a slow pace. 4) Act like a real robot. Process, scan, patrol, that’s how you make people really enjoy your presence, the small things are what make you a good actor.

    8) What are the differences between a Series T-700 Drone and a Series T-600 Drone?

    There are very distinct differences between the 700 series and the 600 series. I was criticized on my last application for not being able to do so clearly, but now after doing a bit of research and re-wording my paragraph, I believe I can describe it as accurately as possible.

    The 600 is a 7-foot tall lumbering piece of engineering genius, it has the ability to operate similarly to an actual human if he were the size of the Hulk and as strong. However, when the 600s were designed the SkyNet CPU didn’t have the idea to give them superior thought processing, or any subsystems to prolong life-span or increase combat effectiveness. T-600s are made to kill, but have several flaws in their system, making them as stupid as your average HK. For an example, if they see a human behind them shooting at them, before running behind cover and hiding behind a very obvious piece of obstruction, like a lone car on a bridge, the T-600 will not stop to check the vehicle, instead simply scanning the area before moving on.

    After this series proved to be not as effective as wanted, SkyNet re-created the 600, however, made it more similar to human structure, not nearly as tall or bulky, instead opting to make them as effective as your average Army Ranger or so. They can’t punch through concrete walls or rip apart someone’s skull with a simple grab, at least that’s not what they’re made for, instead opting for incredible tactical reasoning and self-preservation skills. I’ve seen T-700s personally hiding behind cover waiting to ambush someone in the middle of combat, making them deadly simply by themselves. It doesn’t help that they’re also nearly just as resilient to gun-fire as the average T-600 but also seeking to not get shot as often, or be as big a target. Not only this, but they’re also given sub-protocols to be able to pick up weapons if theirs is broken or runs out of ammo. I’ve even read stories where someone attempted to be a martyr and pull a grenade whilst in a choke-hold against a T-700, the T-700 threw the human away and ran into cover from the grenade in an effort to save its life.

    Essentially, the main difference between the two is that the T-600 is a human-size sentry, with only one objective, to kill humans. They don’t run from battle or attempt to hide from their target, they just keep walking until their target is dead, then they switch to the next target. The T-700 is designed with sub-objectives, not to only kill humans, but to preserve their own life, or strategize enough to out-maneuver their target, they’re just as resilient, and they’re still robots, however, they’re just smarter.



    Accepted - Nice detailing and a vast improvement from your previous attempt. - Abaddon
