April Fools 2019: Experimental Translation Plug-in

Post by allejo » Sun Mar 31, 2019 11:39 pm

This is a plug-in I've been secretly running on my servers for a few years now as an experiment. Since BZFlag is a global game, we shouldn't discriminate against anyone for not knowing the language of choice on a particular server. However, this is a plugin I haven't been able to dedicate much time to over the years because of its complexity. For this reason, it only works about 75% of the time.

What does this plug-in do?

Any chat message that is sent in-game must be given to the server first and the server is allowed to manipulate the contents of the message or reject it entirely. That's how swear filters work in servers. So taking this feature, I've written this plug-in that will convert messages into a universal language for all to understand: AOL 1337 Speak.

What is happening to the chat?

All development for this plug-in occurs on GitHub, so be sure to follow development and new releases there; I will very rarely update this post with updates on new releases. The link below will always point to the latest stable release.

Plug-in Download (BZFS 2.4.0+)

Here's my personal website and my open source projects are available on GitHub; I work on a lot of cool things.

Another well made plug-in.
I can imagine quite a few things being possible with it.

Those who are critical of me, I'll likely be the same of them. ~Zehra
There's always something to remember and it's been a game I love. ~Zehra
The time spent is a time which can never be regained, so it's a time to enjoy. ~Zehra
The decisions we make are the ones we look forward too and the ones we regret. ~Zehra
There's a difference between knowing my name and knowing me, one shows respect to my name and the other is to who I am. ~Zehra
