Sure. Feel free to use it however you want.

You can copy it, edit it, stick your name on it... Whatever takes your fancy. I've no issue with it at all. :wink:

Excellent design. I will try to do something in Portuguese.
Cantr II is a social simulator. What is not working is due a problem in the society.
Cantr is like Vegas - what happens in the game should be in the game.

Two criticisms - some spelling errors, one. Two, get rid of the "sheep make poopy" image. If you're trying to actually market the game, that won't help sell it to anyone except scat fetishists.

Thank you. Can you point out the spelling errors? I've quadruple-checked it before exporting, and didn't spot anything. I still can't.

Heh, I don't know how I missed that every time! Thank you. Okay, noted. Any other spelling errors, or was it just the one?

I thought "sheep make poopy" was funny, but not all people appreciate such jokes, and it's a bit of an inside joke anyway. Besides, as far as I can remember, those notes were spread ingame over 1500 days ago and the author is long dead.

That was effectively the only reason I used that screenie. The fact that it was a pretty old note that seemed rather comical. That, and it's one of the few notes I have available. Something lighthearted with history behind it.

I'm open to suggestions, if you can find something old and more of a clean-funny, I'm more than happy to make the changes. I still have the editable project saved, so it's just going to be an image replacement. All I'd need is a screenshot. :)

I thought it was comical as well, and I don't even know anything about the history behind it. But I can see how some people might not find it amusing.

The sheep poopy thing at the end just make the game look childish.

Okay, it's dawned on me that I don't need to seek out a replacement note for it.

Sailer is now spelled sailor, and the "sheep make poopy" note is now more green. Just as nature intended.

There's a new Webzine post!
http://webzine.cantr.org/english/game-updates/cantr-marketing-push

We'll be using the Webzine to summarize efforts to market Cantr, and giving appropriate credit to players and staff for their efforts and ideas. I welcome any feedback or ideas.
