More tips in the Loading screens


Recommended Posts

After 360 ingame hours (and countless hours in realtime), the messages that are displayed when new area (region, building) is loading, are starting to be a bit boring.

I believe that updating them would be generally very welcome and refreshing. The updated texts might even exceed the gameplay a bit, and serve as real -life learning pieces of wisdom. Examples:

- Matches were invented accidentally, by pharmacist named John Walker, in 1826.
- Be careful when operating firearm indoors, always use ear protection.
- 95 people are employed at Hinterland Studio Inc.
- The oldest building in the world is the Knap of Howar, dating back to around 3600 BCE.
- The dog, Canis familiaris, is a direct descendent of the gray wolf.
- On the top of Mount Everest, pure water boils at about 154 °F (68°C).
- The next closest star is Proxima Centauri, distance of about 4.3 light-years.

I can even imagine that this knowledge might be crowd-sourced: peole could write these pieces and game admins would just upload it into the game.

I'd like for them to remain consistent with the game. But more importantly, I'd like for them to be tied to a separate setting than the difficulty you're playing on. there are plenty of tips i never see cause i play on a difficulty higher than Voyageur. I just like seeing them.
