Description

Replaces the input entity ID with a new string of text and fades the old text to the new one over the input duration.

As with other types of modifications, replacements made with this script are permanent and will persist until another replacement is performed. This script cannot be performed simultaneously with other replacement actions operating on the same entity ID.

Replaced text will be automatically added to the backlog.
