Small things I noticed

#1 Post by Bromstarzan » Sat May 14, 2016 6:26 pm

I'll try to collect my small observations in this thread:

First out: Build 160419.1fe183d

Cosmetic: Link marker has missed 's' in the text "Organic Hulls" and I suppose the following text is missing 'to' as in '...are able to collect...".

It actually needs substantial rewording, and probably have an expansion article somewhere, its' not just for the basic ORganic Hull, it's for the entire Organic Line of ships up to and including Sentient. The link not including the s is inevitable though, it's linking to an article name so is coded

Code: Select all

SHP_ORGANIC_WAR_ADAPTION_DESC
It seems [[tech SHP_ORG_HULL]]s are able collect photonic energy which can be redirected to empower certain ship systems.
The missing 'to' is definitely meant to be there though.

I think we need a series of articles (or at least one) explaining the different hull types, quite a few effects are linked by type now, and I've no doubt more will come through in the future. Any volunteers?

yup, Mat, I realized the 's' needs to be left out from the link as I saw this in several places and understood it was a coding technique. That's fine, just wanted to highlight it in case it was a single typo.

I also realize that some texts are more or less placeholders and perhaps will be replaced/reworked when feature is set in stone. I'll keep my eyes open for more serious bugs.

Thanks for all the work, game is seriously fun!
