How much would it mess people up if I made references to the Photon Missile consistent throughout the game? There are several places where it's refered to as Photon Torpedo, but the proper name is Photon Missile. Should I just leave it alone? Or would it be harmless to fix it?

This is a Star Trek / Star Wars thing right?

I've always referred to it as a ptorp myself. I think a lot of players do.

But I think the question is what could it affect.

Counter Torps? Depending on the trigger it is looking for.
LSD Shopper? If buying fotons, what trigger.
Scripts that are setup if you fire a foton and your corpie is waiting on a trigger to warp in off that message.

Couple small examples. I am guessing it could break some scripts that are typical offensive type scripts, but most of the ones I have seen only key on the word photon.

This has nothing to do with leveling the playing field. This has to do with an many requests from gameops to be able to customize their games. Those who want to do this tend not to be the people who are running games in which scripters are active. I don't see it as a problem.

As I've said many times, I see far more of the active TW community than others here do. And I make decisions about what I do with the game based on that overall vision, not just on the three or four major public servers.

I think it's a great idea. I like the this word translation thing too. Maybe if we change enough text in the game we can eliminate scripts all together. If we make enough changes maybe we can even eliminate helpers too.

I say we should give JP all the room he needs and let him make all the changes he feels is necessary. Then we can look at the final version and decide if it's worth playing or not. You know the old saying, "give him the rope he needs".

So in summary, changing Photon Missile to Photon Torpedo would destroy the game?
