Hello, all translations (except English'/Polish) are done by community users. First, I would thank you all for this great work.
If you wish to help with translation/check translation progress, you can do it here:
You can vote up for good translations, vote down for bad translations, suggest your translations. Please don't use automatic translation tools. If you are not good at translation, you don't need to do it. Be sure to read the Documentation page on Yerba Mate Tycoon Localizor Page.
I know that translation can take a lot of time. In the past, I was helping with one steam game (translating English --> Polish) as a hobby. No need to rush, no need to overwork.
If you wish to ask if xx language is available on the game, it all depends on the community, and as I wrote before, you can check each language progress on the Localizor page.
The normal guide will come in the future. Right now it's more like "Tech demo" than game, it might last "few minutes" of gameplay :-} But doing the alpha tests, will speed up my progress :-} I'm a bit ashamed of the game status.
How do we gain cash?
We are gaining cash by creating yerba mate (click on the shopkeeper, then the yerba creation panel will open). In the panel, we can set various stats. And we can also do contracts (by clicking on the shopkeeper).
We got four worker types:
Researcher --> Help in Research, more workers = faster research.
Normal Worker --> Help in Yerba Creation
Marketer --> Help in marketing.
Leader --> Main character, work in all areas (Research, Normal Worker, Marketer).
When creating yerba mate, after release, we got the "heart" icon with a number. If we click it, we can start marketing (marketing speed depends on the marketers). More marketing = more sales (but it's not always worth it).
Menu --> Options --> Scroll to bottom --> Report Bug, or you can post it on the forum, same with ideas :-}
Will come in the future, right now only Windows, sorry, but extra platforms = extra time
