Universal Grammar and Spelling Error Topic

Recommended Posts

The Goal of this Topic to find Grammar and Spelling mistakes in the game and to report them here so the team can fix them.

Feel free to add to add you own findings and do not hesitate to post when you are not 100% sure whether you found a mistake or not. Im sure the team would rather have a few false positives then miss some of them.

Recommended format:

Interface Location: e.g. Tutorial > Behold!

Original text: Screenshot or Citation

Mistake: Describe the Error and (optional) how to correct it.

 

If using screenshots please include your screenshot as a link and NOT as an image. You can do that by clicking the ceaf7e42d6.png button and pasting the image link in the URL-Field and leaving the Link-Text Field empty.

General error in the tutorial

The tutorial alternates the use of articles when referring to the different interfaces and control panels in the game. When the tutorial refers to an interface or button it uses an article most of the time, but in a few cases it doesn’t.

For example: ‘The Epicenter Window’, but ‘Contruction menu’ and ‘Statistics Screen’ and ‘Constructors Hut’

Sentences like “In statistics screen you can see information …” and “Construction menu lets you build …” and “… Remember to build Constructors Hut first …” just don’t sound right without and article. 

 

Interface location: Tutorial > Behold!

Original text: http://puu.sh/olpCM/6543ab3ada.jpg

Mistake: There should be an additional space between 'W, A, S and D keys.' and 'Give it a try!' (line 3)

 

Interface location: Tutorial > Stone Age

Original text: http://puu.sh/olpJP/ffd570d57a.jpg

Mistake: Not sure but I think ‘outward’ (line 3) should be ‘outwards’

 

Interface location: Tutorial > Construction

Original text: http://puu.sh/olpTv/2cc979bf1f.jpg

Mistake:Every key buildings’ (line 1). It should be ‘All key buildings’ or ‘Every key building’

 

Interface location: Tutorial > Construction

Original text: http://puu.sh/olpTv/2cc979bf1f.jpg

Mistake: ‘Resourcess’ (line 2) should only have one ‘s’

 

Interface location: Constructors Hut > Assign worker with existing occupation

Original text: http://puu.sh/olxLm/441dbdc78a.jpg

Mistake: 'Chose' (button 1) Should be 'Choose'

During the Tutorial:

(*cough*by a LAKE*cough) - missing * at the end of second cough

 

I know it's petty but it bothers me to see it incorrect.

Interface location: Tutorial > Statistics Screen

Mistake: Inconsistent use of proper noun "Nuggets" and missing comma after "resources"  Should read "...population, resources, and Nuggets."

Quote

 

The comma before and is optional. (Choose the option you like best and stick to it.)

Example:
 Old McDonald had a pig, a dog, a cow and a horse.
 Old McDonald had a pig, a dog, a cow, and a horse.

Also the 'Nuggets' apart from the alternating use of capitals, seem fine to me. Can you elaborate further?

I misspoke when I used the word "use."  It was intended to be capitalization.

I do apologize for the confusion.
