Default Roleplay server

Hi. I am from Romania and I'm currently working on a roleplay server.

But I don't know what to do.


Make it in english and accept multilanguage people, or just make it in Romanian.

Can you give me PRO and Cons? Thank you

If you know what you're doing, there are definitely advantages in having the English UI option.
If I were you, I would put a switch between Romanian and English.
Have it work properly, have everything properly translated and you get the benefits from both sides.

Yeah, but I initially thought that, In character chat can be multilangual, as everyone can speak whatever language they want, and if you don't know spanish, you won't talk it. Here it would eliminate the powergame of multilangualism.


But there's an problem. If I'm roleplaying mexican gangster, and someone from REAL mexico comes and talks to me in game in spanish, what do I do if I have no clue what he's saying, but IC I should know spanish

The rules should apply as they apply on this particular forum. He should speak English, since he's on a foreign server that accepts either the native language or English.
There's nothing wrong in enforcing English. You'll get the higher player counts, cause people from all over the world know English.
Alternatively, you could have chat rooms implemented for different countries so you can make it easier for your players to form parties and coordinate.

Cel mai bine Romana + Engleza.
Nu toti romanii stiu engleza, dar multi straini stiu engleza => mai multi jucatori.
Fa-ti ceva functii care sa afiseze mesaje in functie de limba selectata.

Make a function which will show selected language texts.

Īl fac īn engleză, deoarece, cine nu știe puțină engleză, nu cred că are ce căuta pe server. Nu īl fac īncāt să fii as īn engleză ca să te joci.


I'll make it in english, because, who doesn't know a little bit of english, I don't see what would he do on the server. I won't make it so you need to be ace on english.

Most countries around the world speak at least some english, but only really Romania speaks Romanian. If you want more people, you should appeal to more people by making it in English.
