Hi all,

I made a new campaign save file earlier and modded it a bit, so I would start off friendly with all factions and could pick my own enemies. I know that you currently cannot get friendly status with any faction (or at least I haven't found out how to, yet), but still - I found a bit of an oversight in the text for the Independent faction.

Here's what's currently there:
Code
"greetingFriendly":"I’ll be slagged, space isn’t so empty after all! And to think I assumed you were hostile. What a pleasant surprise to be wrong.",

Here's what should be there:
Code
"greetingFriendly":"I'll be slagged, space isn't so empty after all! And to think I assumed you were hostile. What a pleasant surprise to be wrong.",

The slanted quotes (’) render as question marks ingame, whereas the normal quotes (') work fine. As said, it's a very minor issue, but if becoming friendly with this faction is planned for future releases it might be good to fix that in advance. ;)

Thank you - fixed.

Nothing good has ever come of the so-called "smart quotes". I hate them with a passion.

+1  :)  Totally crashed the game for me when I was modding and could not figure out why until I opened the file in notepad++ and saw the stupid slanty quotes.  >:[
