we have added syntax checking and compatibility modes to the repo
there are 3 compatibility modes so far (see little icon on the top right side):
"OK", will load in the latest RoR version without problems:
"warnings" will produce warnings and some things may not work, but the basics should load:
(authors should fix the warnings it finds)
"errors" means that the truck has serious problems and needs to be fixed. It may not even load correctly.
so clicking on any of these icons will bring you to the compatibility section of the file detail view. It looks with warnings like this:
and with errors like that:
please note the table below it, where you can look at the truck itself or the parser log it produced. Clicking on the log might produce this HTML with a link to the truck file with the error highlighted in yellow:
just try yourself

yes, they are coming in the next update
things to keep in mind:
* transition from 'nodes' to 'nodes2' is easy: just replace nodes with nodes2, the numbers will act as the names
* transition from nodes2 to nodes is impossible if you used text
* only use node names without any special characters or spaces (only a-z, A-Z, 0-9, _, -)
* you dont need to convert all nodes to nodes2 with names, if a nodes2 named node is not found, it will fallback to using the number as classic node.
will update the wiki soon
UPDATE: added documentation to the wiki: Truck_Description_File#Nodes2
UPDATE: they are now usable in 0.38.41: Changelog#0.38.41

i added a graphical text representation to the translation tool to help the translator identify the parts they should translate and which not.
Green = translate-able
Red = do not translate, integrate into text: those are formatting strings
Blue = spaces
also, bonus side effect: people cannot copy+paste into a bad translator anymore.
UPDATE: also added ingame previews with the Cyberbit font. (see attached examples)

great! thanks everyone!
(one red dot means one or more visits)
see interactive version here
RoR is now 100% translate-able. Not as previously just the configurator, but the whole game, settings, menus, etc. Basically any strings you can see as a user are now translate-able.
The Config format and Log files will stay in English, so we could provide support
see below for some examples using the polish language.

some little recap after the 0.38 release 10 days ago:
we got 23.543 downloads of 0.38.33 so far (link) seems we got no really bad bugs, just the usual isolated problems that are specific to certain hardware, computers or people
so all in all I'm very happy that this went so smooth this time
looking forward to fix more bugs and add more features.
PS: someone finally discovered my easter egg
forum-wise: we even got a random thank you post, uncommon but shows that are nice people out there
also, we have a new italian sub-board: http://www.rigsofrods.com/forums/191-Italiano
