    Technical typo in "The deadly triangle" FM

    Burrick Power Plant Expense
    Weekly usage of Radioactive Mushrooms has exceeded affordable rate of kilowatt per hour of production.
    I'm sure author did mean kilowatts or kilowatt*hour (kW⋅h).
    kW/h is a very strange unit. It is an acceleration of power-producing. Surely it is just a typo.

    Do we have the author nearby to fix it?

    Hey, we have kids who play this game. What will we teach them? To mix kW, Kw*h and acceleration? Not the best school I would say...

    I'm sure this will be the topic of our next episode, such an important task!

    If we can teach kids about radioactive mushrooms, Burricks, Frogbeasts, Bugbeasts, Craymen, The Maw, Keepers, Hammerites, Karras, Victrolia, invisibility potions, speed potions, thieving, blackjacking, killings, drownings, teleportation.......

    I think they can live with a typo.

    Ps. Can't be done with a dml, need to rewrite the BurrickLedger.str and then players need to manually change that in their Books folder.

    Guess this goes straight onto "The Worst Missions We Have" list (tm).

    That's not true. I can delete the blasphemy via dml. Such slander will not be tolerated while we're on watch!

    I could also let all frog beasts explode on sim start, they are dangerous and they deserve a Darwin Award, anyway. Kids will think the swamps are full of them.

    The Darwin Awards are possibly some of the funniest things you'll ever come across on the internet.

    Ps. I refuse to test that dml

    We have, but I need a patch: I don't know English good enough to fix it myself.

    Wow, this mission sounds like an absolute farce. Can’t believe the author would hamfist in something like this

    I stand by A.Stahl. He is technically correct, the best kind of correct.

    The best way to handle something like this is to message or email the author, if you must, not start a thread!

    I was a beta tester for The Deadly Triangle. I tried my best to point out where texts did not make sense to me. None of my suggestions to changes in the readme or in the ingame readables made it into the released mission.

    You got to hand it to the author though, he had us all fooled for 8 years. Says more about us than him. SAD
