I know this is minor in most people's minds, but it is a constant source of irritation for me-- fix the spelling and grammar! Please!!
The game appears illiterate as it stands. This type of attention to detail imbues a sense of professionalism in the final product.
We all paid for a professional product, did we not?
Do you have an example?
Spelling - "Infedel" is but one of many. Not every race makes this error.
Grammar - "One wormhole to many"-- Is that more than a tolerable amount of wormholes (too)? Or is that a reference to experienced travel between them (to)? This is ambiguity at its finest, and therefore becomes meaningless, confusing and distracting.
Those two examples jump into mind, but there are many throughout the game. Of course, I don't remember them all without being reminded during game-play.
Sorry to be so persnickety, but it makes me grind my teeth every time I see something like this. I just think it detracts from what will someday become a classic, quality game. I believe that. I also believe it should be nipped in the bud before it becomes a gargantuan set of tentacles permeating GalCiv III.
Above all, kids play this game, and their already deteriorating command of the language should not be encouraged. I see grammatical blunders in major publications in this country every day and am appalled for the same reason. I realize GC3 was never intended to be an educational tool, but this is basic English we're talking about.
If I can put even a tiny dent in this terrible trend, I will consider my earthly time to not have been wasted.
Frogboy, if you are sincerely interested in correcting these mistakes, I would be more than happy to keep track of them for you, as I encounter the boo-boos, and send you a list from time to time. I'm forever playing the game anyway, so a little productive result would make me feel better about myself and all those "wasted" hours.
I'm ashamed to tell you that I have well over 1000 hours invested in this game and can offer but two lonely examples off the top of my head. I didn't expect this happy result from a simple post in a forum, and have arrived unprepared.
Thanks for all your hard work; you and the SD team have given me many hours of enjoyment.
Let me know what you think,
