Pretty simple one really.

Proposal: Making it possible for the player to use apostrophes in their city names.


Have you Checked the DNS and PSI lists in the Archives? Is this idea similar to one that has been previously suggested? : Yes and i didn't find anything of this sort, but please tell me if i missed something.


Reason: It's a simple thing that should be here now if i am perfectly honest. When you colonize a city, it is default named (Hyper's City). So why can't we use apostrophes now?


Details: Not sure how much detail is required. Please just add this --> '


Visual Aids: Think of a city name in your head that requires an apostrophe. EXAMPLE - Hyper's Shoe (rather than -> Hypers Shoe.) No-one really likes to see grammatical errors and not be able to do anything about them.


Balance: Hyper's balancing beam.


Abuse Prevention: I hid the answer in Innogames's bookshelf.


Summary: Apostrophes for city names.

I thought they were allowed, I remember when you first started out on a world your town would be named XXPLAYERNAMEXX's Town. (This was 2+years ago though, maybe it has changed)

Yes this is exactly the point.

When you colonize a city, it is default named (Hyper's City). So why can't we use apostrophes now?
It also happens when you start a world...Your username's city. So when you try to change the city name to something which requires an apostrophe grammatically, you can't.

You cannot even have city names which contain - Can't or Didn't - but you can have, Cant or didnt .

Such a simple thing it's like 10mins for inno surely?

Always wondered why this wasn't already part of the code lol...

Are we all sure we only want apostrophes and no other 'special character'?

Yeah, this is fairly basic and I don't understand why it wasn't already present, to be honest.

they disabled punctuation because of the "possibility of creating lewd images with special characters"
basically, they don't want people doing things like making richard's mighty pee pee 8====D

#1 - bad link. And by "bad", I mean flat-out incorrect. Actually, no; I do not think it's humanly possible to reach the exact opposite end of the spectrum than planned with any more success than you have achieved. Attention deficit entails a liability to avoid attention to detail, resulting in common minor errors. Oops, that's not quite what we meant now, is it?

#2 - making light of any diagnosis, mental or otherwise, is unwarranted and a poor show of character. These matters affect millions of people's lives dramatically, and causing any form of offence or mockery regarding that fact just isn't human.

Apologies for the tangent, combating ignorance is an important step towards improving society, in my view.

Back to the topic; the creation of "lewd" images can be reported just as easily as racist, homophobic and profane language. It doesn't warrant an utter omission, surely.
