General Spelling and Typography thread

Recommended Posts

Fixed everything but the “standarts” thing, since these strings are handled by Steam. However, I'll forward this to our Steam contact. As always, thank you for taking your time to help us fix the texts.

This has been bugging me since forever.

 

On the Jericho ship tree, the Type-S ships (Machete Type-S, Crus Type-S and so forth) are all spelt like this: "Type-S". This is fine and dandy.

 

Why on earth is the Axe spelt like "Axe-X type-S"? The X at the end doesn't bug me, it's the "type" written without a capital T in it. Why is that?

That kind of thing you should report you know...Doesn't matter how small it is, if its inconsistent with the rest, or simply wrong, report it and then they will decide if it's worth changing :)

 

But you reported it now, so that's good ^.^

He is correct oryngton ;) In the little text explaining it in larger detail(the smaller grey/white letters) it is spelled wrongly

Oh wait... "goold old Cameleon", "realy grisly situation": that makes three errors.

 

As for "an enemy has you locked"... I would have put it as "an enemy has locked on to you" instead.

You truly are our heroes and saviours. Everything mentioned since my last post has just been fixed and should go live with the next update. Now that we have a text suggestion feature built into the game I suggest you use that instead since it's so much easier to sort through the reports it produces.

 

A little note on artefacts/artifacts. They were initially called artefacts to maintain consistency with the BrE spellings in the game. They will turn into artIfacts in the next update since this spelling is accepted in AmE and BrE alike and shouldn't look as alien to our American pilots.

Settings -> Game -> Developer assistance. When the option's enabled, you can hold Ctrl+Alt and left-click most strings in the game to suggest your own version of the string.

 

I agree that it's hidden deep in the game menu and it's not even absolutely clear what it does or how it works. I've already asked Antibus to cover the system in the next blog, so let's hope it's going to clear things up.

Every description involving the special ability

 

"Energy consumption of [class] modules reduced by x%" has the word "modules" twice.

 

The same applies to "Effects of [class] modules are increased by x%", and "Reloading rate" abilities.

It appears the option no longer works.

I have reported 1 thing through the system, and now I tried to use it agian for another, and it no longer highlights it, nor makes me able to change whatever I clicked.

 

Could you have a look at the plasma arc description? According to the community the range is more than the 120m it says ingame.

If I'm not mistaken, the button combination's been changed for the highlight system. Check the tooltip in the options menu.

 

As for the arc description, the change should go live with the next patch.

I was reading the FAQ and noticed some:

17. unavailable until the battle ends

39. cleverly set up modules

Those were the only two spelling mistakes I noticed.

It says increase by 16 sec. I think you probably meant increase for 16 sec.

Fixed the module description, thank you. Website fixes are not as easy and fast to apply, but they will be fixed at some point too.

There is no ship named "Dwarf", so why is the rank 6 Empire recon named "Dwarf 2"?

Because in the past there was a good ship tree, then they went: Let's shake this up!
