Hello everyone! We are excited and proud to officially announce the launch of Kerbal Space Program 1.3: “Away with words”! This release is the result of countless hours of dedicated work between the translators, developers and volunteers who made this possible. We started this massive endeavour 9 months ago and a couple of months ago the update entered its pre-release phase, where the wide community helped us polish the final details of the localization effort to ensure a high quality experience to all KSP players, and now we can proudly say that Kerbal Space Program is available in four more languages: Japanese, Simplified Chinese, Russian and Spanish. This means that more people will be able to enjoy the Kerbal experience in their native tongue. Each language was carefully localized so it keeps the humor and charm of the english version. Keyboard layouts, UI and textures were also modified to please local players of each region. To give you an idea of the scope of this endeavour, we had to carefully revise all lines of code to start cataloging all the aspects that needed to be localized and addressed. We translated more than 95,000 words, created 456 images for textures and UI, prepared 684 slides for the KSPedia and everything was carefully revised by a team of more than twenty dedicated volunteers. And that is not all, we are also including the integration of Asteroid Day mod into this update, which is now localized and its contracts are balanced for a career game play-through, too. Additionally, for 1.3 we have added the Ambient Light Adjustment feature - a Boost value to the ambient light setting (similar to the highlighter boost slider). This one brightens the render engine settings to bring light into the darkness. Something that will come in handy if you like to capture and share ingame footage. And of course, like with every update, we have addressed several bugs and issues, check the changelog to find out more about the highlights of the update.
