I've been compelled to make a full blown fediverse conversion mod for Stellaris, and I don't know what it is that's compelling me, but I will not stop until it is complete. I want as many instances represented as possible, @ me your ideas.

this will be the highest effort shitpost of my entire fediverse career

Show thread

it is slowly dawning on me that this mod will take weeks of work. maybe even months. However, I have the rest of quarantine to go, this is my job now.

Show thread

so far I've got
- a mastodon logo for .social
- :knzk:
- a snout (for snouts.online)
- the yiff.life hex
- the goat of hellsite.site
- the radtown :lazer_R:
- pawprint for whomst.dog
- selontheweb as representative symbol of godforsaken.website
- a mate gourd for myasstodon
- an efdn.club logo

Show thread

I need more symbols! @ me a symbol if your instance isn't yet represented and I'll get it in there

emojis work well for this, so if your instance has an emoji you think represents it, do @ me it

Show thread

note to self: change the language file such that the "Leave Federation" button says "Defederate" instead

Show thread

can't really think of any traits for mastodon.socialites besides repugnant.

Show thread

I take that back. I went for Fleeting, Nomadic, and Rapid Breeders

Show thread

if I had a dataset of fursona names I could make a namelist

Show thread

If I was REALLY talented, I could make Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit into respective endgame crisis

Show thread

Reddit would be the scourge, for obvious reasons. and Twitter would be the robot uprising, because algorithm. Facebook or Google would be the interdimensional invasion.

Show thread

it's been like 12 hours and I'm still going, but I need MORE. send me your emojis, send me your ideas and your huddled masses.

Show thread

@ItsMorgan I absolutely will. hopefully I can arrange some sort of inaugural playtest of it with a bunch of fedifolk

@anarchiv @ItsMorgan speaking of... is there any emoji or anything that's representative of todon.nl?

@starwall well this is the logo :todon: but it's not much. I could go out on a limb and say the most commonly used emojo is :trebuchet: perhaps lol

@anarchiv @ItsMorgan hmm. I could add the trebuchet but we have :trebuchet: too and I think maybe even .social does too? is todon themed at all or is it just kinda general use?

@anarchiv alternatively I could just see what my artistic talents can draw up as representative of you specifically, as I've done with godforsaken.website and sel and botsin.space with starwall-e. A stylized space station perhaps?

@starwall hmmm that could be fun. but I'm not even a mod anymore, even when I am, arguably, one of the most popular people on Todon

@starwall @anarchiv @ItsMorgan i mean, we have the :klomp:, although I don't know how representative it is v:

@anarchiv @starwall @ItsMorgan honestly one of the first things I noticed about todon.nl after getting on it was the :acab: emoji

a little cheap because it's first alphabetically, but still, has a kinda todon.nl vibe I think

not at the forefront, though, just like, a burning police car somewhere in the distant background

@starwall for a sec there I thought this was some kind of custom OS GUI and I was like "oh shit that'd be kinda rad to use"

@starwall Wait, a "huddle" was a football thing, right?

So a huddled mass is, like, a football player?

@starwall Starwall you are a genius, this mod might bring me back into this game

@007 @starwall i humbly suggest that this be considered for the the formal name of this project
