Aaaargh!


I finally bouhgt and installed Zubmariner assuming my backup translated dll files were in order (they were last time I checked), but when I was about to copy them back to the game directory, I realized one of the two was missing, SunlessGame.dll, the biggest of the two. I have no idea what happenned to it, whether I inadvertently deleted it or what.
I've been unable to recover it so I'll have to translate it again from scratch, which is going to set me back somewhat (it's not so much text compared to the whooping 80% of events.json still to be translated, but it's a pain to hunt for every translatable string in the dll. Again).

It's my own damn fault for not double checking the backups were in place before installing the DLC. Just needed to vent a little.

Does anybody know where these interactions are stored in the game files? You know, the ones where you see something on the zee-floor, sail over it and get some minor reward through a log message, without triggering a proper event, like extra oxygen from a vent, supplies from a wreck or terror form a constant companion husk.

I've been unable to find them neither in the json files nor the dlls, but they must be somewhere.

I'm back for more!

"The inhabitants of Scrimshander spend much of their time praying on the mysteries of the past. They spend almost as much time arguing about their interpretations. Salted residents often collect nearby salvage, studying the results and inscribing their interpretations on any skeletal remains."

What's the meaning of "salted" here? Is it just because they gather salvage in the salty zee and thus end up salted themselves or is there something else to it?

Salty or salted certainly connects to the sea and to zailoring generally. Also, it's a suggestion of age (both because old heads, like salt, are white, and a wry nod at salting being a way to preserve meat). The age links are particularly appropriate for this text, which is emphasizing Scrimshander's historical leanings. These inhabitants aren't just piratical historians; they are historical themselves.

Thanks. Once again, layers upon layers. I'll see what I can do.

"Approach the Raven Haired Dotress"

Does "dotress" mean something or am I right to assume it is a typo and it actually means "doctress"

Apparently this Nook event is UNUSED, so not a big deal, but I may as well get it done just in case.

Insofar as I know, dotress doesn't actually exist in the English language. It may be (highly unlikely) that its refering to dote, ie. someone who dotes. Otherwise, it's more likely she's a doctress, whether medical or academic. It would depend on the text, I think, which I'm unable to find on the wiki.

There's not much context to go on. She's a potential partner in an underwater orgy in Nook (the other being a Mischievous Eyed Gentleman... or both) and that is her only appearance. There's nothing to go on about whether she could be a doctress or anything else.
[spoiler]"Her tongue presses eagerly against yours. She stops you from floating away by digging her ragged fingernails into your cheeks. Her writhing body wraps around yours with the slippery finesse of an eel. She drags you down, deeper into the tooth, and then deeper into her embrace. When all is done, she kisses you gently on your forehead. Her eyes do not leave yours as she lifts your wrist to her mouth. She bites down - sharply, firmly, gently - suckling at the warm blood."[/spoiler]
As I said, the event seems to be unused and even if it wasn't, her nomenclature is mostly inconsequential, I was just curious at this point. I went with doctress anyway.

I wonder if this was cut from the game for being a little too explicit for the general tone. The Gentleman option even includes some bondage, and is mention of "effluence" from the orgy being carried away by the currents.

PS. I hope I'm not braking any rules by posting this cut content. It's out there in the events file for anyone to see.
