Why we cannot use colored texts inside Small/Big Message. Since its a feature from original text localization system inside overwatch.
Take an example for mercy ressurection text:
<fg%1$s>RESURRECTED</fg> BY <fg%1$s>%2$s</fg>
%1$sis a color in hex we wanna use in “RESSURECTED” and player name texts
%2$stext point to second argument passed to formatter, to place player name that revivied.
%1$s equivalent to
Custom String values in workshop, except that we cannot format these values.
And formatter look for
<fg00ff00>colored text</fg> and apply formatting.
It was used before for place icons inside custom room names, but was removed.
Both for REPL:
REPL in ow localization system is alternative formatting used specially for quantity numeration. For example:
count > 1 ? values : value
