Spelling And Grammar Errors

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this has already been posted, but I just finished researching Shields Construction and got this message: "You finished researching Shields Construction: General information on how to build varios types of shields."

 

I believe it should be "various types"

One of Xaquelina's daily harvesting quests sent me to Isla Prima to get Tiger Lillies.

 

Once all of the Tiger Lillies are harvested, the pop-up says: "You got all of the Tigger Lillies"

 

"Tigger" should be "Tiger"

Haidir Quest in IP:

 

Reca says: "One one of the barrels behind me..." I think it might should say: "Using one of the barrels behind me..." or "One of the barrels behind me contains.." or something like that.

 

And in the same paragraph she also says:

 

"I hate spiders, so I can't even go down the basement". It should say something llike "I hate spiders, so I can't even go down into the basement" or "I hate spiders, so I can't even go down there."

"My special impatients shipment is delayed again.. The impatients I need must be collected from Crystal Cavern 140.81. I need 60"

 

impatients should be impatiens

I think that Daritha's been eating too many mushrooms. Either that, or she's been tweeting excessively.

If you are already on her "iron chains" (meaning "iron chain-mail torso armor") quest and you ask her if she needs help, she replies:

I can has my 10 iron chanins first ktnxby?
A less cryptic response might be something along the lines of:
You must bring me my 10 iron chain-mail torso armors before you can help me further.

Daritha is not some 12 year old texting valley girl. She is supposed to be a warrior and a teacher. Give that kind of moronity to some loser NPC that hangs around a tavern (or SW Desert Pines in a tent), not to someone responsible for training fighters and handing out high-XP quests. It just mentally throws you out of the game.

green day - "off" should be "of"

 

The Green Day Role Playing Description is as follows: "Role Playing: Today we honor Mother Nature by not stripping her off her resources."

 

It should be "stripping her of her resources"

 

Extrapolation posted this way back in 2007. I noticed the same spelling mistake 3 years later...just sayin'

typo in counter:

If its anything other than the extra "]" in "] Inorganic Removal Stone (lost)" string then you'll have to be more specific :P . Some of those strings are client side and so we could correct a typo without a server change. In any case, regarding the extra "]" please could you post the full string from your chat log so that we can see where the string slicing has gone wrong.

Its the extra ] and this post contains a screenie of the message I got.

What the screen in this post does not show is a correctly spelled line for an Inorganic Removal stone that did end up in my inventory a couple of years ago.

Today is a special day:

Peace Day

English: No fighting today, you can't attack players, animals or monsters, and the animals or monsters won't attack you either.

Role Playing: Today we celebrate life and, as such, we will not fight with eachother, nor will will harm any life form.

Personally, I think it should read: English: No fighting today. You can't attack players......

I've modified to the counters code to be more robust - CVS updated. No idea why the server message used "a[n]" but it should not matter now. If you have a complete chat log, you can reread all the breaks and events category information using the "#chat_to_counters" command.

Hi, i'm new to the fourms but i noticed when doing the quest for Novac on Isla Prima that there was a text error he says "you have to kill a fox, as kalana in desert pines about the location" what i think he was saying is ask rather than as?

As seen just now :

GIWS: The Global Invasion Warning System project is functional, and it's efficiency rating has been upgraded to rank 3 (the higher the better, max is 3)

It should be 'its efficiency'.
