Scientist's Access and how it could be modified
Created by: Diavill
As it stands a Scientist can do the job of a roboticist, but better. The job title itself has much more access than it needs, in my opinion. There are a lot of alternate titles, like Plasma Researcher or Xenobiologist but they all come with the same access as the default title, if I'm not mistaken.
I propose that this be changed. A Scientist should have access to just R&D, a Xenobiologist just to xenobiology, a Plasma Researcher just to Toxins, a Xenoarch to the outpost, that from which I gather just requries basic science access, which every job in the science department should have anyway.
Obviously this would straight away make R&D undoable. No one in their right mind would want to do R&D and deliver toys to people and not have access to anything else. That is why leaving R&D access to all science jobs is also acceptable, sort of how Medical Doctors have chem and genetics access. Although I do prefer the less-access option.
This would leave telescience. I strongly believe that the paramedic should have access to it. Telescience is used nefariously to steal shit from the traders, sec or break people out of jail, all of which I myself as a scientist am guilty of. That is, unless you have someone whos job is actually saving people's lives, then the use of telescience changes drastically. Now of course there are people who use telescience and set it up with a CMC and make a telebay, but its quite rare for it to be permanently manned.
I would be very happy to hear what everyone has to think about this.
