When making an online game where players are allowed to make their own content, there's always the chance for some players to use offensive language in what they make. In order to avoid this, companies, like SPP, will censor certain words to avoid any cries of foul. For those of us who have been playing Infamous 2's UGC for a while however, we've ran into quite a few words have been censored that seem to be completely unoffensive. Obviously the F-word among others is blocked, but having to write dialogue without using the word 'after' because it's censored can get a bit frustrating.
The purpose of this thread is to list and discuss words that are censored in I2's UGC. I'll keep a list of any the people remember and update it in this initial post.
Unexpected Censored Words:
This has helped me a lot in the missions I've been working on, however it would help even more, if people here can know how to bypass the censor system, for example adding 'Damn' as censor to bypass with - D*mn? That's only an example, but as you may have known while typing in the text on the Playstation you're able to switch to different types of 'vowel' letters such as 'ä
' or 'ø
', therefore 'Dä
fter, or Cø
n. I'm not sure if ø
is in the Playstation's text, but the point is that you may be able to have the player recognize these censored words by adding those different lettered vowels or censor point '*
', I've seen a few players bypass these words in particular and type even more vulgar words.
I'll attempt to test these words in game so that I'll be able to put them out here and so others not informed may use it to their advantage, and since SP doesn't seem interested in updating this (as mentioned so many times from players), we mine as well attempt to bypass these censored words with other doctored words.
