Please remove "völkisch" from the german translation
« on: September 11, 2018, 04:58:10 AM »

The german version of RimWorld currently contains the word "völkisch", a term invented by the Nazi-regime for propaganda purposes, which should not be a part of this game.

I NEED HELP! For a very long time I haven't received any emails about new posts in subscribed threads. I already asked in the support forum and even PMed Tynan but nobody responds to me. Can anyone help me please?

Your interpretation is only partially right: "völkisch" was indeed used by the Nazi-regime as a specialized word for the national identification, but the word itself is much older as you can also read up on wiki:

Nonetheless, I don't see a problem with changing it. Will be done. :D
