Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China prepares for multi-lingual release
As Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China gets ready for international release, a decent number of translations are being prepared for implementation courtesy of today’s “Lingua Franca” update. Soon, air-combat action gamers in Germany, France, Poland, Spain, China, Japan, Mexico, Taiwan, Russia, Brazil, and more countries, can take to the skies in their native language.
On a side note, the Lingua Franca moniker was chosen as a name for the final English update as the term fittingly means “a language or dialect used to make communication possible between people who do not share a native language”.
Launched on Steam’s Early Access programme in August 2015, Flying Tigers: Shadows Over China is approaching final release.
Update details as follows…
- Strings: Finalized English-language strings in preparation for translation and the upcoming multi-lingual/international release.
- Performance: 3D-renderer now optimized for low-end PCs, circa +30% more efficient occlusion culling, resulting in lower stress on bandwidth.
- UX: New default. Players can now toggle the free-roaming Panoramic Camera by holding Left ALT and moving the mouse to look around (if playing on MOUSE+KEYBOARD, for example).
- GUI: Updated text-system for multi-player lobby and console/log output strings.
- Aircraft: Implemented cockpits for amphibious fighter planes A6M2-N “Rufe” and SC-1 “Seahawk”.
- Audio/Music: Updated multiplayer lobby, mission result, and main theme tracks.
