The game uses British spelling!

Hey everyone.

We've had a few players point out some spelling mistakes which in fact aren't. The game uses british english spelling! ;)

As for the use of metric measures on the game, I greatly send my thank you. My country uses them.

But, if we take into consideration the population of US gamers, the moderators could also use imperial measures. Thus, both could be displayed simultaneusly.

For temperatures, it could be: "X ºC / Y ºF"

For volumes, it could be: "X cubic metres / yards"

Why not please both sides? ;)

I would greatly appreciate that as I was never taught the metric system. It was never in use in schools at that time.Everything was Imperial and I still use Imperial.

As a player in the US, we have been on Imperial for... ever? As long as I can remember, anyway. :lol: I've picked up a bit of metric out of curiosity. I don't find it necessary to use Imperial in HA, though; there's really no point that I can see. If the goal is to gain weight until you weigh 90kg, and you eat something that makes you gain 1kg, then you are simply 1kg closer to 90kg. It doesn't change my gameplay to know that my goal of 90kg is nearly 198.5 lbs. It's interesting, yes; but if I go to Google and type "90kg to lbs", it tells me the answer and satisfies my curiosity. To ask for the coders to go back and change everything so that it's converted just wouldn't make much sense to me, and perhaps is not the wisest use of their time.
