Make min/max age a config.

Post by Itseasytosee2me » #648618

Your selectable age as a character is hardcoded to be between 17 and 85. It seems reasonable that someone running TG code may want to raise these numbers.

This change is definitely not a necessity. But as I was investigating relevant code during the latest drama, I found that it wasn't a config, and I figured it was weird to have age hardcoded like that. I'm not trying to make a call to action to change the age min.

Please don't make the age config. The only people I trust less to be sensible with it than coders are headmins. Before you know it they'll have min-max set from 0-1000.

For gameplay reasons the current system works fine, both smoking & drinking restrictions, and being aged up to be dusted by old timer drink work in a balanced way within the parameters, going over or under will just start breaking the systems and worse yet the roleplay and standards in general (if we had any).
