Please Report Missing and/or Placeholder Text

Postby sven » Mon Jan 16, 2017 2:33 am

Hi all. I've been going over the various in-game documentation nodes, and fixing, replacing, or removing any missing descriptions or developer 'TODO' / 'unimplemented' notes.

I've now addressed all the outstanding text issues that I can find, but the game has a fair amount of text, so the odds aren't bad that I've missed a couple. If any of you notice any placeholder and/or developer TODO notes in the current builds, please let me know about it.

Many thanks.

The no_research_project placeholder is still present in the planet build queue screen when no research project is selected.

Ah, yes, thanks. It and the similar "no_production_set" string should be replaced with equivalent message strings as of r19295.

The help text for 'Insurgent' on Gaiad population is still missing.

Oops! I see now there's quite a bit of text missing for the various minor race traits. That will take a moment to fix...

All the missing racial trait text should now be fixed (as of r19299), but 'Capricious', 'Insurgent', and 'Criminal' are not yet working as described.

I've found another one. "Starvation warnings due to blockades still need to be written up/tested!"

edited by sven: Good find. In this particular game, this is actually caused by a bug in the notification maintenance logic, as that starvation report should have been implicitly removed when you changed the production on Adhara II. Relatively low priority fix, but I'll get to it...

In r19305, the Warp Interdictor tech still has placeholder and TODO text.

Oops. That tech was merged with 'Warp Wells', and it looks like I forgot to remove the now-redundant Interdictor tech. Should be fixed in r19308. Thanks again :)

When looking at a build queue on a planet without mines, the "no_mines" placeholder text is visible.

Good catch. Should be fixed in r19330. Many thanks.

Not sure if this counts, but I don't believe that the terraforming options in the build queue make the result of the terraforming clear. There should likely be explanations similar to the main facilities (factory will increase production by X, growing to X+3 at population Y). Something like (Planet will convert to type X with environments Y and Z) would be a good start.
