Just a thought: Old Unity engine versions had problems with non-English locales, often leading to completely random problems. Could you try to start the game by prepending `LANG=C LC_ALL=C ` and check if that changes something?
All problems with the Linux-Version are solved now!
Even the problems with missing graphics, flickering and wrong stats.
Thank you very much for this tip.
You should put a starter with "LANG=C LC_ALL=C ./the_sapling.x86_64" in the Linux-package.
Wow, unbelievable, thank you so much ifo and SebastianPetters... if there's anything I can do for you to thank you, let me know. There will be another patch this week or next week, I'll make sure this is included.
