Typo: "out units" should be "our units".

McDutchie (talk)21:10, 15 August 2018

This needs clarification. What is the meaning of "party" here?

McDutchie (talk)22:30, 27 January 2018

"Founding father recruitment ages" What is the meaning of "recruitment ages"? I suppose it means that certain founding father is available for recruitment only during certain period of time. Is it correct?

SergeyButkov (talk)18:18, 3 August 2016

Your guess sounds plausible. I do wonder why is it not called "years" instead of "ages" then.

Nike (talk)05:52, 4 August 2016
 

After doing some digging in the code, I found out that the concept of ages primarily has to do with a method for FreeCol's AI to select which founding Fathers to displays as options for the player to pick.

The ages are roughly from game start (normally 1492) to the year 1599, a second from 1600-1699, and the final of the three starts at 1700.

The decision to call them ages probably, and I am speculating, just simply to denote these longer periods of times (at least a century) with one simple word.

Grammatical Mistake

There are some grammatical mistakes in the displayed messages when informing about the people of concerned nations. For example with german settings the following message “Eure Exzellenz, die Französisch haben Frieden mit uns!” or “Warten auf: Französisch” is displayed. But the correct grammatical form would be “Eure Exzellenz, die Franzosen haben Frieden mit uns!” and “Warten auf: Franzosen”. We figured out that it works correctly if we replace the term “%nation%” with the term "\{\{tag:people|%nation%\}\}" and the terms “model.nation.apache.name=Apachen” (and similar ones) with "model.nation.apache.name={{Tag:|country={{{country}}}|people=Apachen|default=Apachen}}". Although we cite examples from the german version, we noticed that this fix works for all languages. We would like to carry out the necessary changes in the message files for all languages. We kindly ask you to give a look at the problem and give us your opinion on the solution.

The normal way is to update qqq of all the involved messages so that the translators are aware of how to translate them.

TAG and PLURAL simultaneously

Is there any way to use plural and noun declension for the same word (for example unit name)? I added some cases and other grammatical forms for nations (FreeCol:Model.nation.english.name/ru) and etc, but I don't know how I may combine {{plural:...}} with {{tag:...}}.

Arex (talk)10:54, 7 June 2013

I would like to know as well if it is possible to nest them. Btw your translation is missing a }.

Nike (talk)09:21, 9 June 2013

If will you know how to do that, please write about it. Thx for indication of the mistake.

Arex (talk)09:00, 10 June 2013
 

Who to ask then?

Nemo (talk)23:07, 17 November 2013

Still lacks qqq

The command tells FreeCol to no longer display messages to the user about a given trade route. Please note that this string has been renamed tradeRouteInputPanel.silence.

This is the keyboard shortcut for renaming a FreeCol object, such as a unit or settlement.

Calebrw (talk)04:21, 22 October 2016
 

Is this a description or command?

Anakmalaysia (talk)14:02, 26 October 2014

In this narrow context, this is used as a descriptive noun to signify FreeCol units can can perform the pillage (verb) action.

Calebrw (talk)04:04, 22 October 2016
 

Documentation needed. May used either a noun or a verb...

Liuxinyu970226 (talk)04:16, 24 October 2014

In this narrow context, this is used as a descriptive noun to signify FreeCol units can can perform the bombard (verb) action.

What should be the difference between FreeCol:Load/cs and FreeCol:Fill/cs? Is the first one for save files (like save) and the second one for units (like unload), say load into a ship?

Utar (talk)21:00, 5 February 2014

In the FreeCol context, Load is almost certainly in reference to either a save game or map loading action or loading goods or units onto a carrier (ship, wagon train, etc.) Fill is almost certainly going to be referred to something to with the user interface, for instance filling in some polygon with a solid color. I am not sure if fill is being used anywhere specific.

Siebrand12:25, 24 March 2014

Based on Flag.java, this is supposed to refer to horizontal stripes. I am not familiar with this usage of the word fesses personally, but according to the information cited below, it may also be used on the coat of arms.

From the Merriam-Webster dictionary:

Definition of fess 1: a broad horizontal bar across the middle of a heraldic field 2: the center point of an armorial escutcheon

You can subsequently find more about a fess on Wikipedia.

The tags wrapping this message can be moved to the code.

Siebrand23:36, 7 October 2013

Thanks for pointing this out. I have created a bug report to gain action on this issue. See BR#2995.
