Price of game is 10,000?

Post by kodamann » Sat May 10, 2014 11:27 pm

Hello!

I received an email for the game after purchase and it stated that it was 10,000 euros. I was wondering if this was a mistake made between translation from czech to english, or something else. Kinda worries me, since I don't really wanna spend that much on the game sorry!

Any help would put my mind to rest so i can further enjoy the game, thank you!

Hey kodamann, a lot of countries use ',' as their decimal separator instead of a '.', so what it really is 10.000 euros (not sure why there are 3 zeros instead of 2...maybe a 'foreign' thing or maybe a programming thing...) and 10 euros is approximately $13.76 usd (according to wolfram alpha) aka $14 (as shown on the Factorio website).

for some educational reading (which is quite interesting) see wikipedia Decimal_separator
