Awesome. Now I have something to read on my FOUR HOUR car ride to Otakon! *squee!* More Fluff Text!!

What's the Chinese Symbols on the Solar Union symbol say? Wow, alot of Asian [specifically Chinese] symbolism. I guess that's who won World War IV.

Also, on page 89, you have "on Martian" rather than "one Martian". There's more spelling errors, but that can be easily found, I don't want to dwell on it.

Instead, i'm gonna fangasm over how amazing this is. Aaahh! Such great art too!

Oh, I'm sure there are lots of typos. Proofreading is the last thing that happens before a book goes to press.

If you want to give feedback, my concerns we all about comprehension.

It says, "10,000".

There's lots of Asian stuff because most people are Asian. The people of the Northern Republic of Mars are mostly Russian, if I recall. Those are the originators of the UMFL.

I have noticed a few typos but out of respect for Josh's note that they're not bothering with those just yet, I'm not going to mention any.

One thing I am going to point out is the symbol for the UMFL makes note of "the red circle of Mars".

But the whole logo is green... ;)

Specifically, it says "wan4 sui4," or in English, "10,000 years (age)."

We found some clarity issues, but I'll wait for the official "stick all your pdf feedback here" thread.

Dag nabbit! Woke up to the email this morning, but working my 4th 7a-7p in a row. Will try to start the download this evening before I crash. But, hey, I've got all day off tomorrow!

That was a weird problem! It also fixed. You were probably the first downloader and maybe a dozen other people got the one that made itself green. The color shift was an artifact of the creative process — the color was called green, but was reformulated to red. The PDF rendering software prefers the name to the actual color mix, it turns out!

Wow OK, not heard of that particular phenomenon before but then I haven't made a lot of PDFs. I'll re-download it :)

Dunno if it's just me, but I can't open the PDF with Preview. It crashes about 5 seconds after being opened. It loads fine through Chrome; haven't tried Abobe Reader.

Re-downloaded and it's still green for me. Although the lighter green border is now gone... odd.

I downloaded and it opens fine in Foxit PDF Reader, except for the green UMFL logo as mentioned above.

I'd love to see you with a moustache. Lends an air of dignity. :mrgreen:

Haven't had a moustache in nigh-onto a donkey's buttons! Why, at the time, onion in my belt, I remember it being the cat's pajamas among the dancing girls, if you catch my meaning, chum!

Anyway, fixed the color. If you wanna re-download, it's a deep, Martian red now!
