I’m addicted to mods…
No, no, not that kind – WAR mods – I’ve gone and written another one.
This is a remake of the daoc command /rpfilter – which lets you translate the gibberings of the average loltxtm8spkr into something legibile:
e.g. turn “lol” into “most amusing”
Much room for other comedy such as turning “heal pls” into “Don’t heal me ever I’m an idiot” or “Flim” into “That gimp” (back in daoc for some odd reason I always turned “imo” into “forsooth” – easily amused I guess)
This was inspired by the sad fate of the roleplay servers – all three RP servers in europe seem to be somewhat in decline – and from the polls on the official servers it seems like the german/french roleplayers would rather roleplay on an own-language core server than on an english language RP server (even the Burlok poll seemed to show a preference for transferring to other english core servers than to make one big RP server, though it was a close run thing)
It remains to be seen what GOA do about all this but in the mean time (and indeed for the past few months) people have been rerolling on Core servers already and egomaniac that I am I thought I could maybe help them with a little /rpfiltering 🙂
All of 12 downloads so far so it’s hardly set the world alight, but we’ll see.
