Shit-stirring? I think you didn't read the post very well then. I was the first person in this thread to mention a custom character generator, if I recall correctly, and I was the only person they responded to in this thread, and they weren't very nice about it. And really, they don't have to be, but I'd certainly like it if they were.
Also, I didn't say they should have said "Nope, no customs!" In fact, I said the exact opposite: that they SHOULDN'T have said that. That's more or less what they initially said, and that's why I pressed the issue before. If they had just explained themselves back then as they have now, there wouldn't be an issue. In fact, if I had it my way, there wouldn't be an issue now. When the devs answered me before, they treated me like a moron, and when the FAQ was released, they based an entire section of it detailing how moronic my suggestion was instead of just explaining politely why it wasn't feasible, and when I ask why all the hate, you accuse me of shit-stirring.
Well, all right then. Sorry for shit-stirring. That's not my intention. All I've seen is that I made a suggestion, it was shot down without a proper reason given, I explained that it was possible, but that if the devs said they couldn't do it, that was fine by me. They then replied "This isn't Flash" as though I was a 12 year old who thought that if I could make a game like that work in Flash, they could make it work with their engine. I got a little offended by that comment, but ultimately dropped it and said "whatever." Then they wrote up a "frequently axed questions" document with a section on that suggestion that only I made, and nearly everypony else thought was a bad idea anyway, thus meaning it was pretty much targeted at me, even though I had dropped the issue, and basically talked down to me some more, saying "It's NOT as simple as just making a 'blank' pony with a customizable pallet, you derptard."
So yeah, I'm sort of offended. I don't know why this issue is still going. They could have just said "we have no plans to implement something like that, because it would take too long, and would likely turn out unsatisfactory anyway." Instead they made mention of the fact that I had stated it to be possible, as though I had thought it to be a simple feat.
Whatever. You know what? Devs, I'm sorry for getting offended over what was probably nothing. Perhaps a misunderstanding at most. Just forget I brought any of this up. Just keep doing what you're doing, and I'll go back to doing whatever it is that I do. As I've said a bajillion times now, your project looks great. I'm here to enjoy your work, not fight with you over some stupid non-issue.
But just for the record, for anypony else who wants to talk about "shit-stirring", this is me apologizing and dropping the issue. It's over and done with, at least for me.
