Site’s back!

Unfortunately, we’ve lost all forum posts since mid-December.

That’s not the fault of our hosting provider: they don’t generally provide backups unless the customer pays for them. Unfortunately, I wasn’t aware of this. We’re actually pretty lucky this mid-december one existed. I’ll see about manually setting up something to take more frequent backups in future.

Now that the site’s back, Species ALRE 0.6.0 will be released within the day.

    BTW Quasar, do you mind if i create an italian unoffical fan page for Species on Facebook? I would translate all the information / FAQ in italian for folks who’re too silly and lazy to learn english, and spread the word about this project which is totally unknown amongst italians, silly people. This thing definitely deserves more attenction.

    That sounds like a great idea! Go ahead.

    I’ve been actually thinking about localising the game itself recently, and I’ve come to the conclusion that it should be a community project. I’ve seen this done to good effect by other game projects, and it always struck me as a neat way to achieve it.

    Basically, it would mean taking all the hardcoded text in the game and dumping it out into a text file, which community members could translate into their local language. Then they send the translated file back to us, and we include it with the game as part of a language option.

    Don’t know when I’ll get around to it, but if there’s enough enthusiasm for this idea I’ll put it on the todo list for 0.7.0. 🙂
