Rename the shark based on the active chatters in your twitch chat
Name the shark after your active Twitch chat. Once the name has been chosen for the shark, the person has to say something in chat again to get back in the pool. This rewards activity in your chat.
I recommend setting up a channel point redemption to get chat to make you kill the shark for added engagement.
If you experience any issues that you can't resolve by restarting the game, please ping Meza#0001 on the Raft Modding Discord
Twitch Shark is fully compatible with the Crowd Control mod. Sharks spawned via Crowd Control will take on the names that come from Crowd Control.
This mod was inspired by Dinnerbone's Name Your Shark mod.
Also BIG SHOUTOUT to FranzFischer78 for bringing me up to speed with Raft mod development.
If you need help with raft modding, go check out The Raft Modding docs
Optionally you can install the Mod Updater to make sure you always have the latest versions
Once you have all of the above installed, start the game through the mod loader, make sure all the mods are loaded.
Then head into the main settings of the game, on the last tab you'll have the MOD settings.
Head to https://twitchapps.com/tmi to get yourself an oauth key for your tiwtch bot user (can be your own username too)
Use that in the settings.
Your moderators are allowed to use the following commands in the twitch chat
!noshark username - blacklists a given username
!allowshark username - removes a given username from the blacklist
The mod WORKS in multiplayer.
Sometimes the "Connecting to twitch" notification stays up for 30 seconds. That probably means that the connection failed and twitch's api didn't respond properly. When that happens, reconnect from the settings!
If something doesn't work, make sure to pay attention to the bottom right hand corner of the screen. An error message might pop up.
The main reasons the mod could fail is due to misconfiguration. Make sure to double check your settings and your token in particular.
If that fails, try restarting the game.
If that fails too, press F10 to see the console and please get in touch on github.
