What is "mote_' files?
« on: February 08, 2019, 12:50:51 PM »

In the "DefInjected\ThingDef" folder there are 9 files:
Code: [Select]
Effecter_Construction.xml
Effecter_Damage.xml
Effecter_Ingest.xml
Effecter_Misc.xml
Mote_Meta.xml
Mote_MetaStatus.xml
Mote_Special.xml
Mote_Visual.xml
Mote_Water.xml

Which all of this have the same word (mote) to be translated:
Code: [Select]
<!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_AirPuff.label>Mote</Mote_AirPuff.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_BlastDry.label>Mote</Mote_BlastDry.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_BlastEMP.label>Mote</Mote_BlastEMP.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_BlastExtinguisher.label>Mote</Mote_BlastExtinguisher.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_BlastFlame.label>Mote</Mote_BlastFlame.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_Bombardment.label>Mote</Mote_Bombardment.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_CookBit.label>Mote</Mote_CookBit.label>
 
  <!-- EN: Mote -->
  <Mote_DustPuff.label>Mote</Mote_DustPuff.label>
...

I can not understand where the game appears this string and which meaningful to translate it.
Translate as "speck", and it is same in all cases?

Hm, this is very strange indeed. :o
Have you tried deleting them? Does it change something in-game?

The Mote things,

Well they are more like Effects like Smoke and Splashing Water and that laser pointer for calling in a Orbital Strike...

So it's not that important for changing the Blast EMP and Explosions unless you want to make them be called Explosion in your Language... ;)

Thank you for your info.
I will probably translate it with the same meaning in Greek.

I just do not remember seeing this word somewhere in the game.
(Perhaps on the player's "log" tab?)

we also ask the question on the French side  :o, a word from the developers would point us. We find traces of it nowhere  ;D

As far as I know the motes are just effects. They have internally an label, which must be filled, but it isn't shown anywhere in game.
I've also just added it (as 'Mote') in the german translation for completeness, not for usefulness ;D
