Custom Text Signs

Postby To4ooo4 » 06 Jun 2012 16:33

I was thinking, we should make signs where you can enter your own text. We have text blocks, which let you enter your own text for that brick. So... Why couldn't we do that with signs?

I wasn't asking anything... Doesn't anybody here know a single movie phrase other than ME?

Yoda NEVER said that. He said "Size Matters Not." ...

Yoda DID as a matter of fact say "do or do not. There is no try." Watch The Empire Strikes Back.

For your info... I DID. I have ALL the movies, ALL the games, and ALL the books! I even have the whole saga on SPECIAL EDITION! HA! You watch it again! And, by a matter of fact... HE DID say "Size matters not!" !

No. I won't let this happen again. Will you please just do a quick search before you start an argument?

I'm starting to think To4oooo4o44oo4 is deliberately trolling...

First of all, it's To4ooo4, NOT what you called me. Second of all, what is trolling? Third of all, I PROMISE next time I'll use quick search to see if there is a topic about the post I'm wanting to post. You guys know the rest...

You should search for the world "trolling" before asking us. It's even on Wikipedia.

Furthermore, To4ooo4 is an obfuscated Perl script that I wrote designed to start as many arguments as possible in the shortest time feasible using a semi-intelligent learning subsystem built from a series of Acme-namespace libraries fine-tuned for the Secret Maryo Chronicles forums. So please, don't even try to stop it. Hahaha, BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I'm no script. I'M a person. And I AM in a raging mood.

Of course, I never programmed it to admit it.

Also, back on topic, I don't think implementing this feature would be as easy as it sounds. I think just rendering text onto a blank sign would look misplaced, so we'd have to make it blend in somehow. I'm not sure if a special font will cut it.

I wasn't thinking of it that way. I was thinking that when you press a certain key on the keyboard next to the sign, a text box pops up with... You people would know that part. DO NOT SAY IT, I KNOW YOU CAN NOT READ MY MIND.

It that case it doesn't seem like such signs would provide anything that the message blocks do not provide.

Better yet, let's implement BBCode in text boxes!

Fp, ra, dadu, er, whkrwha?!! Do you know how much you're asking for? BBCode? Bold, italic, underline, quote, code, list, list=, bullet, image, URL, size, color, smilies, and not only do we need to output these but we need to implement a parser, too?! *heart attack*

In all seriousness, though, that actually isn't as hard to implement as one might initially think. It requires a reasonable allocation of time, though, that I don't think anybody's willing to give out for this feature. :/

...Well at least add kind of Yes/No text box which will run a script when "Yes" is clicked. (Another feature to implement when scripting is implemented.)

Would a Y/N box be acceptable? *lazycoder*

By a Y/N box, what do you mean? Do you mean what I said, or a new kind of block?
