Title: Where some strings are used
Post by: Volka on March 06, 2006, 03:10:36 am
Does anybody know where the strings for the ships are actually used in the game? I mean the txt files in content/racename  Ex: content/androsyn/androsyn.txt

The names of the pilots of the ships I can clearly see where they are used, but the first lines, the race and the name of the ship itself (Chmmr Avatar,etc) I'm clueless about where the games calls them.

I'm intrigued about this because I want to know for the translation proyect if we have to touch those text lines.

Someone with knowedge of the code may help us? Thanks

I've added doc/devel/racenames to cvs, which should answer most of your questions.

So finally those strings are unused, how's strange. Unless is common in UQM that some strings are never used?

At any rate, thanks  :)

I may have overlooked something, but it does appear that those particular strings are unused.
And we've found unused resources before, but it isn't common.
