Still, what about the suspiciousness?

I kind of lost it now.

It may be something about difference between potential players and general playerbase who mam buy this game... but I can't recall exactly.

Localization is nice...but what about a real multiplayer expansion? I will be willing to pay a montly suscription to Squad if they can finally do a proper multiplayer expansion.

In fact I will more than happy to work as developer for them if at some point they decide to invest on it.

Yes. A 60% chance. And that's worldwide.

English covers about 11%, Chinese alone comes to about 16%, more than doubling the user base. All together the new languages cover roughly 30% of the world population. (This excludes foreign language speakers and the groups might overlap, but we should expect KSP to have roughly twice the userbase or more now.)

And now the changes to KSP will allow easier integration of more languages, probably even for modders.

I think this is quite a change.

My guess for a good next Language: French.

Well I actually mocked up a plugin to change the language to another language. This can support new languages like French, German, Italian, Polish, etc. It doesnt support localized images yet.

Pluginhttps://github.com/KSP-Localization/SwitchLanguage

I don't have any supported languages atm as I'm currently translating it alone. Any help is appreciated though on the following spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ie7dQrYke2uVg7w16R1ij7qR8zGxnp9EARF6cZvWfQ8/edit?usp=sharing . If I need to add a language, send me a PM and I'll add it to the spreadsheet.

It's been nearly two months since the train left the station.  We have begun to ration meals as supplies run low.  The heater next to my bunk sputters and spurts as we climb the snow covered peaks of the Dunian poles.  I pray my Ma and Pa do not worry.  Even still, I know this journey may be my last.  The silence of the passengers is more frightening than any scream I have dreamt in my most horrifying of dreams.  What will be of us if...when we arrive?  Will the flame still burn, or flicker and fade as the torch which hangs above me?  May I grasp the hope that still remains.  May the end be near.  May our hearts be joyous once again.

Don't consume dairy you find on a train, it might be off!

 

edit: One wonders, though. It is eerily quiet...

Indeed.  Considering length of experimentals per update.  Would be interesting to see.

1.0, of course, was guaranteed to have a huge thread.

I'm to lazy to do any of this, of course.

They're adding 4 languages.  That's pretty massive.

True, but saying it's a small update is ignoring the work that has been done.

I also think people need to to start considering that KSP might be close to finished in Squad's eyes.

I know. If you have seen any of my posts since 1.2.2 was released you will know I am of the opinion real work on the game stopped then, there will be some tidying up and increasing market share work, like localisation and DLC packs, but work on the game in the manner we have known for years has stopped.

They were very reluctant to say that the localisation pack is 1.3, I think they only did that as a result of pressure about 1.3. They don't want to admit there will not be a 1.4...

We will not see `1.4` in the weekly now I think.

Like you say, there is not much reason for hype when there is no change to the actual game.

Even the driver of the hype train's location is `Running out of Hype Coal. Train is now coasting.`

Not even if you a not native English speaker - most players in KSP know English enough.

I'd prefer something more...tangible in update. New planets. New environmental features as a life support. Influence of environment - Greens and equipment must overheat on Eve for example. And so on.

I'm pretty sure that such a decision will depend on the future profit of the 'Making History' expansion. 

What I would like to see is that if at some point in the future the decide to stop KSP development, at least they make all the code open source so the modders community can take over it. 

For me KSP mods development is now much more important that any development from Squad.

I think you've missed one vital part.

Most current players know English enough.

Localization opens the game for all the potential players who don't think they do.
