Small fuel consumption glitch
« on: July 21, 2016, 11:04:34 AM »

When I'm holding station in Hyperspace, the fuel consumption randomly varies between "-0" and "-0,0". Sometimes you can't read it because its changing between the two so fast.

I'm not sure if I just never noticed this or if special factors are required for this to happen.

Pretty sure I fixed this in the last couple of weeks; don't think it's mod-related.

BTW, is it just me or has fuel consumption really a "," instead of a "." as a decimal separator?

e/ And supply consumption, too. And a "." as a delimiter. That's the normal way in German, so I never noticed, but now it seems strange for an English language game. Just better readable?

It uses a period, not a comma. Not sure why it'd look different for you, that's kind of strange. The period is standard in English for this.

Funny that, I just compared it with the blog post pics, it's definitely only in my version. And has been for a long time, I think.



If it's because of my German Windows you could almost call it a feature.

Ohh, that's why. It *is* a feature. Just one I wasn't aware of!

It's using some built-in Java number-string formatting code, and apparently that's using locale-specific commas/periods.
