Firstly, let me state for the record that this "mod," such as it is, is not intended to make any sort of judgment on the designers or anyone else associated with this game. In fact, it is primarily for my own personal use; as much as I love the game wholly, I have a somewhat quirky personality that "twitches" whenever I spot a typo or grammar error. This mod is the culmination of my efforts toward pacifying my "twitchy eye" as it were. I would only like to say this: I love the English language, with all its quirks and bizarre words. It is also a beastly language to wrestle with and I am by no means a professional grammarian; my love of the language is strictly casual. That being said, it's more than likely I've introduced a few of my own (I like commas, for instance; the times are a changing... the poor beast is dying a lingering death, I'm afraid.) I had initially started to comment all my corrections, but that got to be tiresome, so I subsequently removed most of the comments. The few that remain are for those few instances where there was a great deal of confusion (on my part) as to what was intended. I made the best choice that I could, from my limited knowledge, and hope that it suffices. I have otherwise altered no other files and hope that this will be looked on in the manner with which it is offered: a simply and humble token to the designer and the game community at-large, in appreciation for this delightful game that has devoured so much of my time already. Keep up the great work!

Now updated (finally) for v1.95... just in time for 1.96 to come out! :L

I hope you continue your efforts for version 2.0

Hah, I thought about doing this myself awhile ago. Every time I see a grammar or spelling error it drives me crazy, because it greatly degrades the finished professional feel of any game - for me, at least. That said, Zyxpsilon, "developpers" has one too many P's in it.

Actually, it isn't that I love English. I'm just a semi-compulsive perfectionist.

Understood; I wanted to get it done before the release date but missed it by a couple of days. Then, with the release version, I wanted to make sure that anything changed was suitably taken care of. I'd be happy to fire it over to the developers - is there a specific address they'd prefer to have stuff sent to? Otherwise, couldn't they d/l if from the library & make use of it that way?

This is all good and nice while the intention may be honorable but the automatic updating of core files by SDC would prevent us from enjoying it as it really should - a proper & necessary correctiion to some defaults, be it temporary or permanent.

I believe this could have been sent straight to developpers for approval and immediate implementation rather than enforcing us into yet another MOD folder to prevent overwritings of these precious alterations.

They'd owe you a formal credit in correctly spelled out text & sentences, that's a given.
