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
If I was REALLY talented, I could make Facebook, Twitter, and Reddit into respective endgame crisis
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.
some more eyecandy for y'all
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
note to self: rename Influence to Clout
I'm pleased to announce that all food has been replaced with teeth, effective immediately
c l o u t
I'm probably going to make the influence/food conversion into its own mod, and the emblems into its own mod and put them in a fediverse collection. That way people can choose to just play with a specific emblem from the fedi without necessarily also having to eat teeth
@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
*skanking like an absolute cyborg*
@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
@norikawa efdn and moon.holiday are apparently rivaled
@starwall one of our users tried moving to moon.holiday but then got themself kicked off for being too rowdy so its like
@norikawa rowdy is EXACTLY the word I'd use to describe efdn.club.
@norikawa Kinda like reality?
@starwall OH NO
@starwall If there's a monetary currency (or maybe metals?) it should be renamed to Bitcoin so all the ancap instances will feel right at home.
(We haven't gotten around to playing Stellaris, so we don't know the stuff it has.)
@KitsuneAlicia I could easily replace energy credits with bitcoins...
@starwall May I please have some clout?
@starwall where is it stored though
@starwall thanks :)
@starwall you're so kind
A cool and chill place for cool and chill people.
