    There's a loading screen tip that says:

    "Every hour on earth is a day in Novia, Novia months are 1 earth day long, two weeks on earth is a year in Novia."

    HOW CONFUSING. Change the whole thing to:

    "1 hour on earth is 1 day in Novia. 1 day on earth is 1 month in Novia. 2 weeks on earth is 1 year in Novia.

    Understanding time in this game is important.

    Many of the tips on the loading screen are confusing. @Baron Drocis Fondorlatos created this post from 2016 about improving the tips.
    Toward the end of that thread, you can see some of the suggested edits for some of the tips.
    I was hoping the devs would make a google doc with all of the current tips, and a specific thread for suggesting edits, but that has not happened yet.
    In the meantime, I added your correction to this post of suggested edits (see tip # 65). This will hopefully make it easier for the devs to locate all of the suggested edits (if they plan to revise the tips).

    It's not confusing.. it's wrong. A Novia month is 28 Earth hours.. not 24. :)

    I had a read over that post and none of those suggestions really seem anywhere near as necessary as this one. I'm all about brevity, but this one needs some priority, especially since we're talking about a change to text - a quick fix.

    Speaking of text, I hope one of their coders will spare a few minutes of their time to fix the dreaded "(the default key is E)" when you can easily pull out the data from the player settings.

    Parse the string of text to detect something like [key:interact] in the tip to replace it with the actual keycode.
