Character letter endings
« Topic Start: December 06, 2018, 09:50:28 AM »
Character letter endings:

Summary:
Some characters have unique letter endings under every letter sent, possibly to emphasize what they are all about.
Examples:
Yours,
Regards,
Signed and Sealed,
In Arms,
A fare thie well,
Strength and Glory,
By the Great Goat's mercy,

Instead of manually writing these letter endings we can build a feature that adds that particular ending under every letter, report, order or request.

Details:
Letter types could be set as an extra condition, one could set an ending for letter type of messages only, or choose to use endings just for order type of messages.
Multiple endings for different types could also be interesting to some.

Benefits:
a character can be expressed simply but effectively more easily in every message.
Many people already take the effort to manually use endings, taking this effort away could attract more players to use it.

Possible Downsides/Exploits:
lowering the bar to use endings might also have negative side effects like lower quality endings.
It needs work to get implemented with more important things still TODO.

It's been requested before. Not sure what the dev input was. I think there's a fear of spam, and personally, I feel like these endings only have merit if they are actually written out by the person, I wouldn't appreciate them as much at all if I knew they were automatic.

As someone who plays a noble family that is uncommonly "non noble" in acting, I can assure you that I fully mean every lack of honorific I give every time I talk to the effete nobility.

I'm not really in favour of this.

Like Chénier says, for me it holds more value if it's people really writing it.
Otherwise it's just some automatic signature ending.
