    Hey guys,
    I really enjoy playing Eggwars but it's so annyoing when you can't communicate with the not English players so maybe a suggestion is translating the chat of Turkish or Spanish users to English (using something that interacts with google translate)? Would that be possible? It could be a donor perk maybe.

    So you are saying that only donators can use this chat filter? So there are no stone rankers that also want the filter. By the way is google translate very bad to translate sentences. Just saying. ;)

    Google translate was just an example and I think cube needs to think about the performance of this... if it takes more resources to translate it then yes I think it should be for donors only. Also google translate English would still be easier to understand then Turkish ;)

    I think this is too hard to develop and as mentoined above Google Translate isn't the best. So CubeCraft has to make his own translation program? I don't think this is even possible. Maybe it is don't quote me on that because I'm not a developer. I could be possible but I should be very difficult. And who is gonna translate it? The moderators? I don't think so they have other things to do instead of translating words from English to Dutch or something.

    But I just think it is too difficult to develop/implement.

    Every translator is bad IMO. try to translate a sentence in your mother tongue.

    Hmm. I like the idea but, I feel like everyone should be able to use a translator :). Great idea! :p

    Well no. If it wasn't against the EULA, I'd still say it should be shared. Everyone deserves a translater as it makes it fair for everyone. So, that's why.

    It doesn't give in-game advantages, so it isn't against the EULA.

    While this is a good idea, translations are a very inefficient way of communication. To talk to someone successfully, you need to both have the "translation" setting enabled, and it will be very broken up. This makes it harder to understand on a whole new level.

    It would be unfair for this to be donor-only. It makes it very hard for the stone rankers to communicate.

    I like the idea! But I'm not sure if it violates EULA tho, I would say the option should be for all players! :)

    There are many (young) Dutch/Spanish children in CubeCraft, so I think it is good if there is a translator.
    In my opinion, everyone should have access to this and not only the Donators (people with a rank).
    But I think it is hard to make a plugin for this, but I believe in the Developers of CubeCraft :)

    I dont support this

    1. Making it into a perk would be stealing as anyone can quickly copy and put it into a translator for free
    2. I think this would be against the eula anyway as your paying to have the advantage of understanding the language over others that cant
    3. Its very hard to program a chat translator, and as said above it be very broken

    Great suggestion. This would also make it easier to know if someone is using inappropriate language in another language.
