Once your application has been accepted, you may proceed to POLITELY ask an admin on server for C Flags (T-700) using the /a command.

You are also permitted to play as the lesser T-600 drone as a member of the SkyNET faction, regardless of your rank, and may proceed to POLITELY ask for
A Flags (Normal T-600) or B Flags (T-600 Skinjob) using /a. Be sure to create a new character slot for EACH SkyNET drone!

For each SkyNET drone slot you create, you will want to POLITELY ask for the following items from an admin:


Communication Uplink (x1)
Target Finder (x1)


When you receive these items, equip them and configure your uplink to Listen & Transmit to "1000" and Listen only to 1001.

If your application was denied, please review the feedback edited into your post by SkyNET command and reapply within a week. Either you didn't present understanding of what is required and expected of a drone, you have a previous history of protocol breaches in the faction, or you have been denied otherwise specified reasons attached to the edit in your application.

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.

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.

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.

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.

- 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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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

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.

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.
