Translation mod

I decided to make the translation of one mod, but I know that it requires a special loader and without it the characters in the game will not be displayed. Since I have no skills in this, I want to ask: Is there someone here who can help me?

If I understand you correctly, you would like to find a way to translate the game? If yes, that is currently not possible. The main reason is technical, the game cannot load different fonts: it can only load its own specific font that only contains English glyphs. The dev has tried to fix this problem, but, unfortunately, he couldn't find a solution within this engine. You could take a look at the devblog for January 2015 if you are curious about the specific technical reasons.

Maybe after the tablet port is finished, if we're super lucky, we may see some light down the end of this tunnel, but it's complicated. The dev did promise that any follow-up games will be much easier to translate though.

But the game has Russian localization(not official)

Really? Are they using the latin alphabet instead of Cyrillic? Could you give us a link? I'd love to see how they did it!

Oh yeah, they did managed to put something together - honestly, once the first alien broadcast from space reaches the Earth, those bloody Russians will have it cracked and translated by the next Sunday ;)

As far as I understand however, it is a very rough thing, not really usable - something like 1/4 of the game, Google-translate style ;( Probably buggy too, if I were to guess. The GUI translation is probably quite useful though...

Still really impressive on it's own right.

HOWEVER! Please do not post any links here, as it is not a mod but is considered to be a pirated version of the game!

Such a pity, I was naively hoping it was an honest mod. :(
