Not Thriving: On Site Procurement get usage counts

Blowout soon fellow Stalker
Well the crowner says to split it up.

And I'm all for it and think the story trope needs the old name.

Don't think anyone is doing anything though.
Oh really, when?
 52 Shanghai Slave, Fri, 7th Mar '14 1:58:02 AM from YKTTW Relationship Status: is commanded toŚ WANK!
So... to the YKTTW-mobile or should we just sandbox and drop the examples there?

what will it be called though? On Site Procurement is good for the story one. Scavenging Mechanic for the game trope?

Heh...I just now realized that you asked two questions there. I was agreeing with the second sentence; I think a sandbox should be sufficient for the work.

Besides some minor misspellings and grammatical errors I don't see much wrong with it.

Other than needs moar examples! grin

Question regarding the misspellings... is anyone here besides me like to compile in a word processor with spell check, etc. Before transferring it to the wiki?

[up] Well that much is obvious man. I made that in a hurry in fear of getting this thing clocked like the other thread I was watching. I won't fix the errors for now, because others might have a better idea on how to word things there if they saw the original mistakes.

So you're saying you don't want me to proofread?...surprised

[up] I know but I wasn't sure if you meant that you wanted me to leave the original mistakes in there...

I was just going to fix them and not mention it but... Then you said what you said.
 65 Shanghai Slave, Sun, 20th Apr '14 6:54:04 AM from YKTTW Relationship Status: is commanded toŚ WANK!
[up] <sigh> had you just repaired it without asking, We Could Have Avoided All This. And you could have already fixed it without all this pointless talk. I apologize for sounding rude, but had it went that way, my response would have been just "thanks".

[up] Well, thanks again.

anyway, the discussion seems to have died down. we can't waste progress... maybe i'll put this up in ATT.

Ah, screw it, just gonna holler for a mod to look into the sandbox.

I edited it further. Of the two cases discussed here, the game mechanism and the plot device, the one written up is the less interesting. Might as well ship this one off and move on to drafting the good stuff.

[up] So, the videogame mechanic is a no go? if that's the case I guess I'll wait for someone else to make the sandbox. Have no idea how OSP works outside games.

[up] By "outside of games" do you mean in the real world?

I still find both the mechanic and the tactic for plausible deniability, very much feasible.
 71 Shanghai Slave, Wed, 30th Apr '14 5:59:52 AM from YKTTW Relationship Status: is commanded toŚ WANK!
[up] any media (television, animation, film) other than videogames.

[up] you know you're right, outside of metal gear and some other video games I don't (off the top of my head) recall where it pops up.

Perhaps because of the tenancy of most Spy Flicks and such to give the agent every gadget you need for the sake of equipment porn.
 73 Shanghai Slave, Wed, 30th Apr '14 4:30:39 PM from YKTTW Relationship Status: is commanded toŚ WANK!
[up] That's exactly why I avoided the OSP outside games in the first place.

I've never seen it, despite in theory that it would be easily spotted.

The system doesn't know you right now, so no post button for you.
You need to Get Known to get one of those.
