Default No more "g*psy" matchmaker
I'm looking for a mod that changes the name of the "g*psy matchmaker" to just "matchmaker" in order to keep what many consider a slur out of my game.

EDIT: I'd rather have some advice and tips on finding the mod than any disgreement over whether or not it's a Romani slur, thank you.

Was there a specific instance of the word you were thinking of? In my game she generally is given a regular first and last name rather than being called "Gypsy Matchmaker" or anything like that, and in the service phone book she is "Matchmaking Service". The only instances of "gypsy" I can find are in a chance card, the catalog description of Love Potion #8.5, and a pie menu option of a cheat object.

I have a matchmakernamefix wip I started in April but got stuck at some point. Let me see if I've learned enough in the last few months to finish it

edited to ask @kestrellyn if it's not too much trouble, could you please tell me which chance card? I missed that :/

It's the Multiregional Sim of Some Question (Adventurer track, forget what level) chance card. Did you find other instances of the word that I didn't?

Midge the (awesome) tree just shared that fix here, along with an updated version of the visitor controller!

I'm afraid I've been misunderstood: The visitor controller's pie menus were fixed to remove the slur, but the visitor controller did not in itself contain a fix for other areas of the game where the slur appeared. Shastakiss did message me about her fix, so I found a workaround to make it work and uploaded it here.

No problem, I probably should've worded myself more clearly

@Boosterbear, I'm sorry I could never get it to work and that I never followed up with you. I'm really grateful to @Radium for finishing it - thank you!
