An interesting approach. If the game had easy-to-find folders (e.g., Taunts, Cry for Help, Docking Request, etc.), then yes, I suppose it would be easy for players to download files or whole packs of files and drop them in. Josh would still need to program the game to procedurally insert names of stations, NPCs etc., for docking requests and the like, and make NPCs use the files at the right occasion. But yes, it would free him from having to approve the files the community has voted on.Faw wrote:Imo the best way to do this, which would also require the minimum amount of work by Josh, is making a basic extension functionality and then leave the rest to the community. This would work by for instance having a folder where the game looks for custom voices in some format, kind of like custom radio stations for Fallout.
That way he doesn't have to approve anything and the community can manage their own sets of voices/whatever other content can be customized.
