[help] some questions about original English text
« on: October 09, 2018, 04:30:15 AM »

Hello.

I'm not good on English, and I have some questions about vanila's English text. I can't understand them with my knowledge.

Could someone explain them with simpler or other words?

Thank you.


"A friendly AI from your past named Charlon Whitestone ...":

What mean "from your past"?


"InRestraints:In restraints (slowed)":

What will be 'slowed'? Is this about moving speed?


Plant_Bush, "Does not typically talk.":

Yes... plant is not talk. Is this a joke?


CargoPilot58, "... running weapons between ..."

Is this mean "sell or transport or use weapons"? But, he/she is a pilot of the ore cargo ship. I cannot imagine the situation of this.


OverwatchSniper1, "... broke him down and built him back up":

Is this mean like "he reborn as a soldier by hard training"?


TechHead7, "... love of circles.":

What is "love of circles"?

the opposite from "in your future", in Rimworld term, anything before your Cyrosleep.

He is just a cargopilot who work's for a weapon dealer.
Otherwhile he would be a smuggler.

Maybe, but i think it is more psychagogic.
His mind broke down and then it got build up to work at the society again.
You know many soldier got this problem.

Just a geometrical figure.
He like them soo much that he love them to draw and watch these.
Other like to watch girls, he is a techhead, he like circles.

Thank you!

I googled "love of circles" but I got only fancy arts, a movie named "love circle" and slang point to gay. I'm confused but clear now :)

It is simply a joke.
Lots of them are hidden among the Backstories and somes in 'Things Defs'.
