While working on something
, I came across a behavior that I did not expect. As you call know, the char #
can be used to basically hide the rest of the string, making it possible to create ship variants in the tables or assign the same name multiple times in a mission. However, in the tech database, a ship named SF Dragon#weakened
will appear as SF Dragon#weakened
when given the tech-database flag. This behavior breaks the semantics usually associated with that character everywhere else in the game. I have no idea if this has been requested before but I would request a change of said behavior now, everything following the # should not be displayed to the user, even if that means visually duplicate entries in the tech db's list.
Is that doable?Note:
This is my first SCP feature request ever despite being a part of this community for probably a decade now and there was nothing about how to do such requests here
, so I am hoping someone responds
and tells me what happens next.
