[Klonan] [1.1.33] Minor grammatical error

Post by C02038 »

Since you guys have the game in a great place now, thought I'd raise this little thing that I've noticed for a while! :mrgreen:

The notification once a research project completes reads "Press T to start a new research"

Although it can be understood, this looks odd as "research" is what's called an uncountable noun in the same way as the word "music" for example. So we wouldn't normally preface it with the indefinite article. Easy tweak though, here are a couple of drop-in replacements:
  1. Press T to start new research
  2. Press T to choose new research
  3. Press T to start a new research project
Thanks for reading and making such an amazing product!

After careful consideration, I have decided that the current wording is okay
