I thought I'd do another thread just for these.

"prepair" should be "prepare". See the attachment.

06-14-2012, 09:02 PM
On the Trade Screen, the text on the items says 'Drag and Drop', but you have to click to pick it up, and click to put it down.

06-15-2012, 12:36 AM
Under diplomacy screen, under lithosoid, it says expland instead of expand.

Tooltip on Known Sector Modifiers (Space Junk):
People apparent just leave their junk wherever they want

06-15-2012, 12:46 AM
Not exactly a typo:

The range for weapons listed in the tooltips are valued in "meters". I'm thinking that 0 to 19 meters in space is probably a bit too short. ;) Change the tooltip to say "km" for it? Or maybe "hm" for hectometer?

I guess that depends on the size of the ships really... If they are only 5 meters, then 0-19 meters seems right :) But kms is definitely not right, that is way way way too far. The ships are probably more likely in the range of 50-75 meters in length, which means the weapon range is probably more realistically 0-200 meters.

My suggestion would be to just drop the unit from the range. It can be ambiguous "units", its really only there for comparing other weapons with ambiguous "units".

06-15-2012, 12:08 PM
The tooltips for Planned Positive Rumor and Planned Negative Rumor refer both to Quick Sabotage instead of Quick Rumor.

06-15-2012, 12:43 PM
Are there any light components other than crew? If so, put (Crew) after Light Components. If not, just change Light Components to Crew.

06-15-2012, 01:02 PM

There are other components. I had some energy regen light components for instance.

What's a l between friends. :p

06-15-2012, 01:21 PM
"Hidden within the anomaly was some ship components."

Was should be were.

06-15-2012, 01:22 PM
Are there any light components other than crew? If so, put (Crew) after Light Components. If not, just change Light Components to Crew.

Speaking of which, I found it unintuitive that "light armor plating" (I think that was its name) was a heavy component. I was so happy to find a seemingly light component (and it was yellow!), just to have my hopes dashed! :)

06-15-2012, 06:29 PM
When you deliver a needed item to a planet, the message it gives you mentions the planet name where the item name should be.

06-15-2012, 08:38 PM
In the first attachment, 'your' should be 'you're'.

In the second attachment, it's either missing an 'an' or station needs to be plural.

06-16-2012, 02:00 AM
In the diplomat screen, Brunt says "Don't try our patients." That's 'patience'. :)

06-16-2012, 02:35 AM
'Spaces' should be 'Space'. See attachment.

06-17-2012, 07:30 AM
Not exactly a typo, but the wording of the Max Speed tooltip reads a bit strange.
I'd say "The max speed ever" should be changed to something along the lines of "The highest speed possible" .

06-17-2012, 05:03 PM
Here are some more corrections for the tooltips in Drox' options menus :

Graphics Options :

- There's a missing comma after "numbers", and "[...],but better resolutions might be slower." should be "Higher resolutions might be slower." in the Screen Size tooltip.

- There's a missing comma after "slider" in the Gamma slider tooltip.

- There's a superfluous comma after "NPCs" in the Better Lighting tooltip.

- There's a comma missing after "new frequency" in the Screen Frequency tooltip.

- It should read "[...] how far away the camera is [...]" in the Zoom slider tooltip.

- It should read "Anti-aliasing makes the edges of things look less jaggy." and "The higher the number of samples, the better the graphics, but it might slow down the game." in the Anti-Aliasing tooltip. The reference to swords should be removed as well.

- It should be "a glowy effect" in the Bloom tooltip.

- There's a missing comma after "If you turn this off" in the Detail Models tooltip. (What exactly does this option do in Drox?)

- There's a missing comma after "slider" in the Minimap Alpha tooltip.

- It should be "you're having problems" in the Use Hardware Cursor tooltip.

- It should be "[...] most programs that deal with images [...]" and "JPGs" instead of "jpgs" in the Screenshot Type (which should be named Screenshot Format) tooltip.

- It should be "[...] the slowest ones as well." in the Highest Quality button tooltip.

Sound Options :

- It should be "This option chooses the device [...]" in the Sound Device tooltip.

Game Options :

- It should be "[...] above the player's ship" in the Show Player Health Bar tooltip.

- It should be "monsters", and "heads" should be removed from the end of the Show Ingame Health Bars tooltip.

- "show items on ground key" should be "show components key" in the Show Items Toggle tooltip.

- The tooltip for Show Combat Effects should read "Chooses wheter or not to display combat special effects." .

- "world" should be replaced with "planet" in the Show Names tooltip.

- It should read "[...] when the player is hit hard." in the Can Shake Screen tooltip. (My screen will shake on its own when I hit it hard, thanks :) )

- The tooltip for Show Clock should read "Displays a clock in the bottom right corner of the main game screen." .

- It should be "Shows the numbers [...]" in the Show Relation Numbers tooltip.

- "display" should be replaced with "appear" in the Tooltip Delay tooltip.

- "left top" should be "top left" in the Show Full Player Menu (which should be named Show Full Player Info) tooltip.

- It should read "[...] the first slot will still fill, if ever empty." in the Autofill Use Slots tooltip.

- It should be "[...] when you start the game" in the Play Intro Movie tooltip.

Multiplayer Options :

- Both "we"s should be replace with "you" in the Client Data Rate tooltip.


06-17-2012, 05:19 PM
If you try to repair (repair all) a ship that is already fully repaired the message says "Nothing needs repaired!"

06-17-2012, 10:43 PM
If you try to repair (repair all) a ship that is already fully repaired the message says "Nothing needs repaired!"
You beat me to it. Just to clarify, this should be either "Nothing needs repair" or "Nothing needs to be repaired".

06-18-2012, 05:14 PM
In the first image, "ships" should be "ship's".

In the second image, mother should be plural. Also, why is a Shadow planet warning me about the sneaky shadow?

06-18-2012, 05:24 PM
Also, why is a Shadow planet warning me about the sneaky shadow?

Ah, the problem of general advice. :)

06-18-2012, 07:18 PM
It's another one of their cunning ploys!

06-19-2012, 01:03 AM
In the Shadow trade screen, it says, "Thank you nothing." It needs a 'for'.

In the Hive trade screen, it says "You ask too much?" That ? should probably be a . or a !

"Found a small ship wreck on <planet>." Shipwreck is one word.

In the first image, "choosen" should be "chosen".

In the second image, you might say "mention" instead of "bring up".

In the third image, the second half of the first sentence needs a "they". (I wonder if I can fit a 'fourth' in there somewhere. :) ) You will probably need to fix this in all of the components.
The second sentence needs a period.

Enjoying the game!

06-22-2012, 05:20 PM
Not really a typo, but text related :

The item "Tuned Radiation Neutralizer" is missing a decription.

06-23-2012, 08:26 AM
In the text for the Super Rats quest, "Our idea is to mutant a bunch of ants[...]" should be "Our idea is to mutate a bunch of ants[...]" .
(Though I think it's a really stupid idea, these things never work the way they planned)

06-23-2012, 10:50 AM
When it says "N of the population died" where I have seen N be a number of 0.7, 1.3 etc etc. doesn't mean much to me. Is it an absolute? What is the unit? Can it be more specific as an absolute, or convert to a percentage of the population? Make me feel a little more remorse when I let a comet take out a colony. :p

06-23-2012, 03:12 PM
In the first image, it says "Track that ship down and destroy them." 'Them' should be 'it'.

In the second image, the bonus isn't highlighted. It took me a minute to figure it out.

This one's more of a bug than a typo. In image 3, it announces that a Fringe colony in Arkassira was taken out by a Drox Operative (me). I was in the next system over at the time. The line above it says that the Dryad destroyed the Fringe.

06-25-2012, 11:49 AM
In the text for the Super Rats quest, "Our idea is to mutant a bunch of ants[...]" should be "Our idea is to mutate a bunch of ants[...]" .
(Though I think it's a really stupid idea, these things never work the way they planned)

Of course it's not a good idea. :)

06-29-2012, 07:54 PM
"The radiation sickness is now over. Everyone effected is now dead!" Should be affected.

06-29-2012, 07:59 PM
"The radiation sickness is now over. Everyone effected is now dead!" Should be affected.

So what are the rules about effect and affect?

06-29-2012, 08:07 PM
see this link for affect vs effect: http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/affect-versus-effect.aspx

06-29-2012, 08:14 PM
see this link for affect vs effect: http://grammar.quickanddirtytips.com/affect-versus-effect.aspx

I went to that link, and the effect on me affected my infection with the English language. ;)

07-01-2012, 05:48 PM
In the Overlord quest text, there's a superfluous 'the' in "They usually won't attack the anyone directly [...]" .

07-04-2012, 07:33 AM
On the new Win Progress screen, "Are allied with most powerful race?" should probably be just "Allied with most powerful race?" .

07-05-2012, 02:42 PM
'Discrete' should be 'discreet' unless you mean distinct attacks.

07-06-2012, 06:56 PM
Looks like the QuestFail text is missing.

07-07-2012, 04:37 PM
'You' should be 'your'.
You could reword it as, "This is not recommended for your first ship."

07-07-2012, 06:00 PM
I lost a sector and got the attached message. While it is suitably negative, the comments about the other races aren't really relevant. How about sentences like this?

You have suffered a humiliating defeat.
You failed to earn the trust of the great and powerful.
The galactic races hold you in contempt.
You tried to control this sector but it threw you off and left you in the dust.
You are not worthy of the name of Drox Operative.

07-10-2012, 10:23 AM
For the item "beam amplification module", one of the stats is "+x% skill damage". This seems like a carry over from DoP/DC. Should it be "weapon damage" for DO? Or is it specific to laser weapons, so should be "beam damage"?

07-15-2012, 06:09 AM
When you mouse over a fighter health bar, it says "Drop consumables here to help party member". This looks like another carry over. Better to say "fleet member" or "fighter wing member"?

07-18-2012, 08:26 AM
In the shipyard, for the Gleria, it says "The OverlordFactionName9 shockwave". Placeholder/variable hasn't been filled in correctly.

07-18-2012, 08:59 PM
The success text for destroying a giant pod heading toward a planet, displayed in the message log, is missing a translation:

Solved Destroy the Giant Pod heading towards Corn (Lithosoid) quest

07-21-2012, 12:42 AM
In the Dryad diplomatic screen, they say "How fairs this summer's light?" If they're asking how it's doing, it should be 'fares'.

In the first image, 'successfull' should be 'successful'. 'Penalty of' should be 'penalty for'. 'That cause' should be 'it causes'. You could rephrase it as 'The crew of the Stine has mutinied.'

07-22-2012, 03:53 AM
I saw a mission which said "Earthquake Machine's fleet has built an Earthquake Machine". Either I had a special moment with the random name generator, or there is typo/incorrect variable.

07-22-2012, 07:53 PM
The mouseover text for your ship, both in the normal game screen and the map, says Whatever (Your Character). It probably should be Whatever (Your Ship).

07-30-2012, 04:35 PM
Not all of these are new. I'm just inordinately lazy (I prefer "tactful") when it comes to sending in typo reports.

In the "Distract our enemy" and "Help destroy our enemy the [race]" quests, the race ships counter should change to singular if there is one ship remaining ("1 Human ship left to destroy" vs. the current "1 Human ships left to destroy"). (quests.trn)

A few monsters will build "an fleet" or "an fleet of shipss". Both the event log and the associated quests have these typos. (quests.trn)

"Greeting and salutations from this sector of the galaxy." (global.trn)
Greetings should be plural.

"Mutants: There is some kind of strange radiation in the region of space that causes more mutants than normal." (global.trn)
should be "in this region of space"

"Don't worry, your ship, crew, and items all..." (global.trn)
Minor comma splice. The first comma should be a colon ("Don't worry: your ship, crew, and items all...")

Shadow helping ally chatty: "We are please to see [race] developing..." (raceDialog.trn)
should be pleased.

Silent Death quest: "It's only symptom is... " (quests.trn)
should be possessive pronoun its.

Colony Collapse Disorder: "If they die, out our crops might fail." (quests.trn)
comma should come after out.

Power grid failure on [planet]: "Our entire infrustructure" (quests.trn)
should be infrastructure

Destroy the ship []: "The can't be reasoned with" (quests.trn)
should be They

Genetic Engineered Citizens on [planet]: "We have been genetically enhancing are people" (quests.trn)
should be our
same quest: "They situation is out of control"
should be The

Clones on [planet]: "... suddenly the clones think they have rights are some nonsense like that." (quests.trn)
should be or in all three appearances of this phrase.

Volcanic Winter on [Planet]: "that not enough sun light is getting through to the planet." (quests.trn)
sunlight is one word.

"Can't pickup cargo bays with components in it!"
The verb pick up is two words.
Additionally, there is a quantity mismatch between pronoun it and antecedent cargo bays. Two options:
"Can't pick up cargo bay with components in it!"
"Can't pick up cargo bays with components in them!"

Telepaths on [Planet]: "They are stealing all of our secrets. Who know what they will do with it." (quests.trn)
should be them (pronoun quantity should match antecedent secrets)

Riots on [Planet]: "We need the riots quelled immediately before it turns even uglier." (quests.trn)
Either a pronoun quantity mismatch ("We need these riots quelled before they turn even uglier") or the pronoun it has no antecedent and should be replaced with a noun ("We need these riots quelled before things turn even uglier").

Crop failure on [Planet]: "On top of that hungery people get anger easily." (quests.trn)
hungry and angry.
Ideally, a comma should appear after the introductory clause "on top of that".

Super Wheat quest: "A genetically modified, Super Wheat is spreading..." (quests.trn)
comma should be removed. (While it is correct to separate adjectives with commas if they appear in a list, adjectives in proper nouns are considered part of a noun, not part of a list.)

Utopian chatty: "Curious, it is that you seek destruction." (raceDialog.trn)
the comma should be removed.

Fringe chatty: "Oh an Operative, how nice for this sector." (raceDialog.trn)
comma splice + missing comma after interjection. Should read: "Oh, an Operative. How nice for this sector."

Find plans: "Something strange is going on, destroy as many [monster] as it takes to find the plans!" (quests.trn)
Comma splice. This should be two sentences.

Destroy the Plasma Storm Device: "[monster] has built a Plasma Storm Device in [system], go destroy it before it destroys everything near it!" (quests.trn)
Comma splice. This should be two sentences.

Rescue [ship]: "One of our civilian ships seems to have gotten itself trapped by monsters, please rescue [ship]." (quests.trn)
Comma splice. This should be two sentences.

Destroy the comet heading towards []: "Please hurry and destroy the comet, we don't have much time left!" (quests.trn)
Comma splice. This should be two sentences.

08-03-2012, 01:46 AM
Incorrect variable in this one.

08-03-2012, 10:46 PM
"Destroy it before they can build anything." 'They' should be 'it'. 'To their enemies' is unnecessary; if you're going to keep the phrase, change 'their' to 'its'.

08-04-2012, 01:49 AM
Where do I go to pick up the colony module?

08-04-2012, 09:32 AM
Where do I go to pick up the colony module?

Unfortunately the answer is obscured -- it's Jes -- the place you would go to cash in the quest. But yes, it should be in the description.

08-06-2012, 11:00 PM
Image 1. If the colony has been destroyed, how are there enough people to riot and rebel?

Image 2. 'Completly' needs another 'e'.

08-11-2012, 07:35 PM
1. Cutlass is a named monster. Shouldn't it be color-coded?

2. 'Who' should be 'whom' in both cases.

08-13-2012, 09:17 PM
Looks like a variable isn't getting parsed.

08-14-2012, 01:25 AM
1. Should be 'Deliver Weapons'.

2. 'Acheived' should be 'achieved' and 'their' should be 'its'.

3. 'You're' should be 'your'.

This game just keeps getting better and better. :)

08-23-2012, 04:54 PM
I think the ants are supposed to kill all of the rats.

08-24-2012, 03:19 AM
Can you check the minutes on the estimated time for a ship to be built. It says 59 seconds, counts down to zero, 59 seconds, counts down to zero....

08-26-2012, 03:01 AM
1. Either change 'systems' to 'system', or change 'had' and 'is' to 'have' and 'are'.

2. This one has a couple of variable problems.

08-26-2012, 11:50 AM
Small one under the "Semi-hardcore" tooltip of the new ship creation. "ships is" should be "ship is" or perhaps "ship's".

08-29-2012, 12:01 PM
1. 'use' should be 'us'. I would take out the 'Yeah'.

2. 'go' is unnecessary. No Legend points for destroying a fleet? :(

08-29-2012, 12:45 PM
1. 'use' should be 'us'. I would take out the 'Yeah'.

And a question mark after ...isn't it (?)

08-29-2012, 01:27 PM
Need a space between "why give" and the race name.

08-29-2012, 02:39 PM
This sounds kind of awkward. Here's a possible rewording.

The wise stand beside a Drox Operative. Only fools oppose. You knocked this sector apart like a house of cards and brought order to the chaos. Glory to you, Operative, and congratulations on another sector in your pocket.

08-31-2012, 03:44 PM
One of the new system modifiers is missing translations for both the name and description:

08-31-2012, 04:28 PM
1. Variable problem. You might consider 'pieces' instead of 'death'.

2. Maybe talk about the propaganda first, because it caused the riots.

3. It's 'insidious'.

09-01-2012, 01:18 AM
1. Something is wrong with this picture.

2. WarCriminal needs a space.

3. Armageddon has one 'g' and two 'd's.

09-01-2012, 03:47 AM
1. 'breech' should be 'breach'. I think it's in several other places. You need a period instead of a comma after 'critical'.

09-06-2012, 12:55 PM
1. 'wish' should be 'wishes'.

2. 'was' should be 'is', or possibly "that's".

3. 'is' should be 'are'. You might want a period after 'normal'.

Enjoying the game. :)

09-08-2012, 08:07 PM
1. 'They' should be 'it'.

2. 'breech' should be 'breach' in the third sentence.

3. Here's a possible rewrite for the last few sentences.
The spiders are immune to all known poisons, and mutating another animal to kill them seems like a bad idea. We want to kill them the old-fashioned way but we need some supplies. Hurry up though. It seems their favorite food is us.

4. No comma after 'attack'.

09-10-2012, 01:11 PM
1. 'broke' should be 'broken'. 'planet' should be plural.

2. A comma splice is where you have two complete sentences separated by a comma. You can either replace the comma with a period, or put 'and', 'or', or 'but' after the comma.
In the second paragraph, you have a comma splice between the first two sentences. I'd recommend a period. You might consider another period after 'accepted' since that sentence is pretty long.

3. Variable problem with the reward.

09-13-2012, 07:01 PM
Minor tweak. I can use the hotkey to open and close the Drox screen, but if I switch to the Win or Lose screens, the hotkey won't close them.

In the Achievement screen, you have the achievement for doing 2,000 damage before the one for 1,000 damage. I think it's just the numbers. The names seem to be in the right order.

09-16-2012, 01:16 AM
1. Redundant.

2. Should be "insurance-paid-for ship".

3. Should be "spies".

4. Should be "impostor-controlled ship".

09-20-2012, 12:03 AM
1. Defiler should be plural.

2. Need a space before 'Kill Ozzardi' and probably a period after 'Baylisa Weaver'.

3. Missing location. Dorici is a planet.

4. This one doesn't quite make sense.

09-20-2012, 02:38 AM
1. 'except for when' should probably be 'except that when'.

2. An ancient Hezog destroyer appeared. I accepted the quest. A few minutes later it failed (Race solved). The log wrote 'Drakk has destroyed the Trypanos Watcher hunter.'

3. For some reason, whenever I find a Small Teleporter Den, my relocation is logged twice.

4. Watcher should be plural.

I'm having trouble with the Beam Amplification boosts. When I try to replace one with a better one, I get an error: already have one of those installed. I have to remove the first one before I can replace it.

09-22-2012, 06:33 PM

Wow, Valgor! That'll keep Shadow busy for a while. :)

09-23-2012, 06:05 PM
Another "typo" : When Gleria pose as Ghost, the UI incorrectly identifies them as a type of Quake.

That's it for the monster ship descriptions. I might do the Race descriptions next, but I've yet to come across all of the possible subraces.

09-25-2012, 07:19 AM
- The component "Repulsar Beam" should be called "Repulsor Beam"; "ECM Detecter" should be "ECM Detector"
- It would make a bit more sense to call "Gamma" components "Gamma Burst" instead (Gamma Burst Mines, for example)
- In the Borderless Window option tooltip, "the windows" should be "the window", or better yet "the game's window"

4. Should be "impostor-controlled ship".

- In the same quest text, "some how" should be "somehow"; "We want the ship destroyed immediatly" would sound better as "We want that ship destroyed immediatly"

09-27-2012, 02:32 AM
I tried to rescue a ship but monsters got to it first. The quest log says "Failed (planet destroyed)".

There's an extra period in the image.

09-27-2012, 04:47 AM
When trading planet knowledge, the system names of planets listed under "We Offer" are misprinted as ##2## . It's always the same, regardless of the actual system name or system owner.

Oh, and taking screenshots in borderless window mode crashes the game.

That's strange, it works fine for me. Is anyone else seeing this?

09-27-2012, 10:46 AM

Yes -- it happens when you click the planet data to actually trade it and it moves into the "you're trading this" section. I forgot to mention it.

In case it matters, I'm on a Mac.

Ah, that's what I was missing. Valgor even mentioned that part.

09-27-2012, 12:16 PM

Happening to me too. The planet name was Cyonia under planet knowledge, but shows up as this when you get it under "We Offer"

09-27-2012, 04:01 PM
Valgor even mentioned that part.

Sorry, my wording might've been a bit misleading.

09-27-2012, 07:40 PM
Sorry, my wording might've been a bit misleading.

No, I just missed it. :(

09-29-2012, 06:46 AM
"DoomsdayWave" in the Doomsday Wave quest text is missing a space.

10-01-2012, 06:41 AM
After two separate (but from the same race) waves of attackers destroyed a planet, this message popped up :

10-01-2012, 05:32 PM
The item "ECM sweep Jammer" should be called "ECM Sweep Jammer" .

10-05-2012, 11:07 PM
If I'm on the map screen, I can use the starlanes to skip to the next system over. However, when I mouse over the name of the next system, it displays the quests for the current system.

10-08-2012, 04:48 PM
1. Either put a comma after 'Well' or remove it.

2. Hyde Healer should be plural in the second sentence.

3. 'of' needs removed.

4. Same as 2.

"Drakk killed Immobiliser" Unless Immobiliser is British, it should be spelled with a 'z'. The sentence needs a period.

10-09-2012, 12:58 PM
In the Drakk hybrid quest text, "Just think of things we could do with people with [...]" should be "Just think of the things we could do with people who have [...]" .

10-19-2012, 09:29 PM
Need a space before 'on'.

10-25-2012, 09:51 AM
On the Planet Status panel, "Food Grow Rate" should be "Food Growth Rate"; "Food Needed Rate" would read better as "Food Consumption Rate".
To keep things consistent, "Ship build time estimate" should be capitalized.

10-30-2012, 02:46 AM
1. 'spot' and 'jamming' need capitalized.

2. Still having trouble when I solve a monster's quest and then click 'Talk'. Maybe have the Solve menu disappear?

11-05-2012, 06:53 AM
- There's a missing stop at the end of one of the Hive's neutral trade responses.

- The number of enemy ships left to complete a war quest is misprinted.

11-05-2012, 07:10 PM
1. "They are" should be "It is".

2. "They are" should be "It is". "They build" should be "It builds".

3. "insectiod" should be "insectoid".

4. "genetically" only has one 'c'.

5. Am I supposed to kill Acanth Shade or Superior Obsidian?

11-05-2012, 07:19 PM
1. "Recieve" should be "Receive."

2. You probably mean "Dominium". Also, it shows crosshairs when I mouse over it, but I can't shoot it, and I'm not at war with it.

11-05-2012, 08:39 PM
5. Am I supposed to kill Acanth Shade or Superior Obsidian?

I'd guess and say you should kill Acanth Shades, since they seem to be the ones actually attacking.
Followers of an uprising don't necessarily need to belong to the same kind as the original insurgents.

11-08-2012, 02:52 AM
This would be awfully hard to find. :) Can it include the system?

11-08-2012, 06:58 AM
This might seem a bit nitpicky, especially this late in the beta (and since I went over this previously), but I suggest these changes to the Game Options menu for clarity and consistency:

- "Hide Crappy Components" should become "Hide basic components", since there are no real "crappy" components in the game;
just basic, non-tweaked versions (unlike Din's where there were rusted, cracked, dented etc. items). The tooltip should be changed accordingly.

- "Show player health bar" should become "Show player status bars". Structure could be considered the player ship's "health", but everything else has no sensible analogy.
The tooltip should be changed accordingly.

- Similarly, "Show ingame Health Bars" should become "Show ingame status bars".

- "Use show items toggle" should become "Use show item text toggle".

- "Can shake screen" should become "Use screen shake effect".

- "Show Use Hints" should be "Show use hints".

- "Pickup components by text" should become "Pick up items by text only".

- "Show Clock" should become "Show realtime clock".

- "Thrusters Toggle" should become "Use thruster toggle".

- "Thrusters Disengage" should become "Use thruster disengage".

- "Thruster Cursor" should become "Use thrust towards cursor".

- "Allow Basic Mouse Move" should become "Use basic mouse movement".

- "Show Simple Tips" should become "Show simple tips only".

- "Show Full Player Menu" should become "Show full player info". The tooltip should be changed accordingly.

- "Show relation numbers" should be moved to the spot between "Show XP numbers" and "Use show items toggle".

- "Long Range Target Lock" should become "Offscreen target lock".

11-09-2012, 06:15 AM
"Attenuater" should be spelt "attenuator" (Inertial attenuater low power item)

11-24-2012, 01:56 AM
'Militay' needs an 'r'.

12-01-2012, 08:52 AM
Encountered a nameless wandering vendor (v1.000).

12-03-2012, 10:02 AM
The second "of" in "of all of the known races" in the Power Rankings tooltip/help text seems superfluous.

12-03-2012, 01:15 PM
Version 1.000

1. 'themselves' should be 'itself'.

2. We still have a problem when I solve a quest for a lone monster, and then click 'Talk'.

3. Help! My mine is being eaten by a weather machine.

4. 3.0 what? Million? Percent?

5. 'PreventsMovement' needs a space.

Congratulations on the release. :)

12-03-2012, 08:50 PM
1. Need a space after 'with'.

2. Need a unit after 0.9.

3. Needs a space.

4. Overlord in Dimensional Pocket.

12-04-2012, 09:29 AM
4. Overlord in Dimensional Pocket.

For this one, was this sector created before or after 0.931?

12-04-2012, 11:24 AM
I can confirm that Overlord quests still spawn their target in a dimensional pocket, post 0.931 .
While I don't really have a problem with it, the quest should at least give the name of the system where the entrance to that particular pocket can be found.

12-04-2012, 11:39 AM
For this one, was this sector created before or after 0.931?

After. On December 1st.
