Missed typos in the latest build:



Spark-class interceptor: "... the chassis instead cradles a miniturized..." should be "miniaturized".


Warthog-class assault fighter: "Boasting superb armor with firewpower..." should be "firepower".


Pirate variant Afflictor and Shade-class frigates: "... much of the TriTachyon phase fleet was irreperably..." should be "irreparably", also "Tri-Tachyon" maybe.


Wayfarer-class combat freighter: "... the Wayfarer does not cut close the ruthless economy that would suite it for bulk trade..." should be "suit".


Valkyrie-class troop transport: "The Valkyrie-class ship a standard destroyer-sized troop transport..." should be "ship is a".


Aurora-class cruiser: "The shields are backed up by hyper-advanced flux dissipation system..." should either be "by a hyper-advanced" or "systems". "Most blueprints required to manufacture an Aurora-class ships..." should either be "an Aurora-class ship or "Aurora-class ships".


Gryphon-class missile cruiser: "... allowing for mid-battle replensihment of missile stocks." Should be "replenishment".


D-class hull descriptions: "Ships that would be decomissioned in quieter times..." should be "decommissioned". Didn't know about this one until it popped up as a spelling error when looking through the Mora (below). The more you know.


Cerberus-class combat freighter: "... filled with both danger and opportunities; The abilities of the Cerberus..." not a typo, but semicolon followed by a capitalised word.


Mora-class carrier: "... the Mora was nontheless decomissioned en masse as doctrine shifted to favour heavier guns..." should be "nonetheless" and "decommissioned".

Brilliant has "No description... yet"

It doesn't appear in codex, but this could still be annoying with mods and/or when mousing over the bottom-left of screen in the Tab overview screen.

The description of transplutonic ore/metal appears to be wrong. I'm not an expert I'm just gleaning this from wikipedia. Maybe this is an argument for just calling it Rare Metal.

Quote
Refined heavy and exotic elements including rare earths, actinides, and more exotic elements essential to advanced industrial and research applications.

Transplutonic means with a higher atomic number than plutonium (Z = 94)

rare earths: Z = 21-71  These are not transplutonic
actinides: Z = 89 - 103 These are fine
more exotic elements: Vague is always safe; these are fine.

It's fine if sci-fi makes up new terms. But I don't see the point of taking a real term, which this iscitation, and using it incorrectly. Starsector already does this with 'mothball' and 'skeleton crew,' and it's annoying.

Ah jeez, this is error due to a holdover from when it was "rare metals". We tightened the definition with the rename but I neglected to update the description. Will fix! (Because this sort of thing drives me crazy as well.)

The description of Neutrino Detector ability has "(...)and occasionally fleets - at exteme ranges" - the R from extreme is missing.

Got another one:
When you try to attack friendly independents with transponder on, the dialog will say "The the independents are not currently hostile, and you have been positively identified(...)". There's a double "the" at the beginning.

The Wolf frigate is listed 2 times under ship hulls in the Codex.

In the process of testing a custom Scintilla (the destroyer-sized Remnant carrier) variant, stumbled upon this:

"The Scintilla light carrier is able to deploy two wings of drone fighters in combat. Although only able to mount light beam weapons, the Scintilal may bear a formidible missile loadout."

(Actually I only noticed the first one initially, but the text box I'm typing in here is showing "formidible" as a typo too, and I'm pretty sure it should be "formidable".)
