I was thinking having a pirate language option. Ya know, like minecraft has. Is this a good idea?

    Start subnautica: Are you ready to sail the seven seas partner
    Feedpack: Parlay matey
    Reaper leviathan: A mighty lookin' beast captn'

    And i do think it's a nice idea for the shits and giggles but not a good idea right now.
    perhaps after 1.0?

    That's a nice idea.
    I'd love to participate if it should happen.

    I accidentally found the language folders in my game when searching for a sound file. Is it possible to just make a copy of the English language file and edit it for this?

    "Well dun ye scurvy dog! ye landed on an ocean world an not a drop of rum in sighte. Arr matey, time to pillage and steal from tha locals!"

    "It's'a peeper, dis fish is a hearty dinner if ye get hunger! tis filled with goodness, but alas not alcohol goodness."

    "Ye infected! ye goin thru withdrawl an need to find a drink of rum!"

    "Tis your ship tha Aurora, tis a fine lookin sighte. Raid it for all the rum it carries, arr."

    The novelty won't last past the wooden decks and between that and the water, i'd rather keep it english.

    We would have to remove all the rum talk... alcoholic refrences would bump the game up to T, and the devs want E 10+.

    that sterotype of pirate revolves around men on ships, with peg legs, eye patches, striped shirts and hooks, speaking in an irish accent. being a pirate is about the romanic side of piracy and the characters involving them, more often than not alcohol is also frequently linked with the sterotype along with sword play and treasure chests filled with gold.

    still, i would like to see where this goes.

    Sorry to bump this, but I mean, why not?
    The game's out so I thought I might resurrect this.

    Yes, it's a great idea. But which languages do you want to translate?

    This would be so much fun. Even better if you can get the PDA to talk like a pirate.

    I'm Interesting, WHY I've to buy legall copy of your software via Steam store - especially you (Unknownworlds) supporting russian fascists and their terrorists by creating for them an translation? Did you MADE ANY translations of text and vocal for UKRAINIAN-speaking users?! I guess it will release me for using pirate copy of YOUR software. You supporting fascists and terrorist - I will be supporting piracy! Damned you cowards!
