English, UK


Adds English, UK (en-gb) to the game as a seperate language, due to this you have to do some small file edits to make it work which I have provided how on the modpage. Some mods are supported with: mods-en-gb

Important Summary (ish)

  • This mod doesn't overwrite the existing en locale and instead uses a different unsupported locale en-gb
  • Mod support is on a separate mod called mods-en-gb
  • I will make a english, UK of the space age dlc very soon after the space age dlc release

How to Install (because of how the game manages unsupported languages)

via editing config.ini but when you switch language once you'll have to do again

  • Find config.ini in User data directory
  • Head to section [general] and put the setting as: locale=en-gb as seen in the image

via adding a dedicated selector for en-gb

  • Find mods folder in User data directory
  • open the .zip (mod itself) and navigate to a folder called "basegame" which this folder is next to other files including info.json
  • Navigate down it through basegame -> core -> locale -> en-gb -> info.json & copy this file
  • Find your Factorio Application Directory
  • navigate down data -> core -> locale & make a folder en-gb, in this folder paste the file you copied
  • when you boot up the game it should now be select-able, this should not override unless you change your game install location

via complete install (with this you can actually run en-gb whilst not running the mod)

  • Find mods folder in User data directory
  • open the .zip (mod itself) and navigate to a folder called "basegame" which this folder is next to other files including info.json
  • Copy base & core from the basegame folder
  • Find your Factorio Application Directory
  • go into the data folder
  • paste
  • This should run, whenever this mod updates though I would recommend reinstalling to install en-gb updates if you use this way

Inspired but not a derivative of https://mods.factorio.com/mod/BritishEnglishLocale but the thumbnail.png is from there
with file editing you may corrupt your game even though I wouldnt want it to currupt on your side, I do not take responsibility
if you know, can you tell me how to add it as a selectable in the language gui via just the mod
