If the (A) stands for auxiliary, then the "(auxiliary)" behind the construction rig could be a bit confusing.

The Hermes description still claims it to be the cheapest ship, despite e.g. the Mudskipper costing less. (Burn 9 also seems slow for a VIP shuttle.)


e/ And the shielded cargo hold descriptions references tolls.

When a patrol is pursuing a named bounty fleet, it does not capitalize the name. Can be seen in Beagle's video: https://youtu.be/UTCpVY80Bpc?t=11m26s

Eventide again: the mouse-over description claims "one day~one year", while the twilight world market condition claims "one day ~ season".



Also, mhhh... does the Mastery-, Core-, Expansion-epoch lore still hold up, with the association of the respective ships? Cause the Gryphon clearly appears to be a Core-epoch ship, while its description strongly implies that it was conceived in the Expansion-epoch shortly before the collapse. Left me puzzled.

Sindria mouse-over description: Is there maybe a comma missing between "created via hellish physics, then trapped"?


The 10^7 population market condition (in Askonia) just reads "tens of millions", while other descriptions have more fluff like "xx is home to yy of people".


Predator or prey mission has one "is" to many: The patrol's Leader is Baikal..,...., is tenacious." Third paragraph.


@ Aron0621: I moved the eventide discussion to its own thread.

Start of the Atlas' description, both in hover-over and in the codex:

"The Atlas-class ships are large space-borne cargo platforms with FTL drive and..."

I'm pretty sure it's missing an "an".

Also, further on in the codex:

"...on a seasonal basis. For the purpose, the Hegemony..."

"That" is probably the correct word, or "said". I'm not 100% sure which is best--I'm not an actual expert on the English language.

I think 'the' is fine.
Not that I'm expert too.

Safety Overrides says that it 'Reduces the peak performance time by a factor of 0.33.'   To reduce x by a factor of y means to perform the operation x/y, so technically that wording says that you are dividing the peak performance time by 0.33, or roughly tripling it.  It should either say 'Reduces peak time to 33%', or 'Reduces peak time by a factor of 3.'

Oh, another thing: Ragnar, in the Valhalla system, has a hover-over tooltip that calls it "Ragnar, Red Giant", which is clearly wrong: Ragnar is small compared to most stars, and its description makes it 100% clear it's a Red Dwarf.

I don't know if this is really counts as a typo but I found a bit of a logical inconsistency in the description of Eventide in the Samarra system. The description says:

Quote
Eventide is a tidally-locked world

But it then goes on to say:

Quote
one day passes on Eventide per year

This doesn't make sense, as being tidally locked would mean that there wouldn't be a day and night cycle at all, just one side in permanent daytime and one side in permanent night time.


(source)
To use this gif as an example, Tidal locking is the effect on the left. What the second half of the description implies, and what the planet's sprite in game does, is the effect on the right, which Wikipedia lists as a synchronous orbit.

Don´t know if already mentioned
( I have had a quick look over the older pages but not found any evidence )  :

Planet "Niflheim" in the Valhalla System , shouldn´t it be "Nilfheim"
At least the current name sounds funny  ::)

since everything seems to depend on the north mythology


Edit : My bad. I´m surprised. But Yeah , it´s correct.

Niflheim is not a mispelling.

Really minor:
In the tutorial when you reach the panel that says : The Hammerheads weapons are organized into three groups. Press 1,2, and 3 to switch between groups. etc.
In game the 2 and 3 are highlighted yellow but 1 isn't. not sure if this is intentional or a tiny mistake

(not really a typo I know)

In the Kite description, first big paragraph, fourth line: space /aircraft instead of space/aircraft.

I think Alex fixed this!

Nope, still there.


Also, last line of the Condor description lacks a space before the parenthesis: "respectable(for a light carrier)"
