this will be the highest effort shitpost of my entire fediverse career
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.
Space has never been so... federated
so far I've got
- a mastodon logo for .social
- a snout (for snouts.online)
- the yiff.life hex
- the goat of hellsite.site
- the radtown
- pawprint for whomst.dog
- selontheweb as representative symbol of godforsaken.website
- a mate gourd for myasstodon
- an efdn.club logo
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
have I been given too much power? have I gone too far?
note to self: change the language file such that the "Leave Federation" button says "Defederate" instead
can't really think of any traits for mastodon.socialites besides repugnant.
I take that back. I went for Fleeting, Nomadic, and Rapid Breeders
this is too much fun
if I had a dataset of fursona names I could make a namelist
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.
it would be too easy to make a jamelist (jorts namelist)
no sleep. only posting.
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.
it may not look like it, but this is 12 hours of labor. phew.
and I've only just begun...
some more eyecandy for y'all
Jlanet (Jort Planet)
alright. It's testing time.
I've got 22 instances represented so far. In total I'd like to have like, at least 50 by the end of this. But, it's time to get some gameplay done, look for some bugs.
so far witches.live is the only fanatical purifier in the galaxy
ah yes, the eternal art art of hours upon hours of bughunting and troubleshooting. This circus is the closest I'll ever get to actual hacking, so I better try to enjoy it.
I think I've found the bug
what is Stellaris but a series of text documents interwoven by code spaghetti
what if I literally replaced all of the AI personalities with various fedifolk tropes, and all of their dialogue with actual assorted mastodon posts
witches.live and playvicious.social have spawned next to each other 3 times in a row. this isn't hardcoded I swear
It breathes! It LIVES!
can we just take a moment to appreciate how epic playvicious's banner is?
it occurs to me that I really need to add some bitcoin nonsense and tech instances for it to really feel like the fediverse.
oh, it is beautiful.
alright I'm gonna take a small break from adding instances and their associated symbols to begin work on personalities and namelists
@starwall What's a huddled mass, anyway?
@starwall Wait, a "huddle" was a football thing, right?
So a huddled mass is, like, a football player?
@starwall have Pleroma be the Unbidden
@starwall in it, voted 5, went hog wild
@starwall Starwall you are a genius, this mod might bring me back into this game
@starwall yes yes yes
@starwall What civics does botsin.space have
@jordyd warbots and driven assimilator
@starwall Perfect 👌
@starwall technically hacking is bughunting just with a different goal in mind
@starwall thats ck2 and eu4, stellaris doesnt even get spaghetti :\
@norikawa admittedly it's very easy to mod. case and point--I'm modding it right now and I'm a complete dumbass
@starwall starwall i fucking love this project.
@dankwraith I... I think I'm going to do it. I've gotta spend my free time during quarantine somehow
@dankwraith thank you, by the way. It means a lot <3
@starwall I mean Stellaris!
@starwall counter.social : militarist, fanatic xenophobe
@norikawa oh yes how did I forget
@starwall cyborg assimilators for bitcoin instances
@starwall or wandering traders
@starwall myass and goblin camp once again go to battle....
@starwall witches.live's days are numbered being squished between efdn and playvicious like that
@starwall seeing how many of these instances have fallen apart by now gives me life
@starwall what's witches.lives' ethics?
@violet fanatic xenophobe spiritualist
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
