[0.11.0] Minor text issue plus wrong tile

As you can see in this screenshot, there's an extra character at the end of this chargen question (a curly brace at the very bottom, probably an artifact from the coding). It seems so minor so probably not a priority. I am running some mods but none that change this portion of the game.

In addition, there appears to be a wrong tile in the Charing Fighter's Guild exterior; I don't know if this is the kind of thing you are looking for reports on, since I don't know if it exists in Classic, but here it is without DREAM enabled (it's easier to see in DREAM but apparently the screenshot is too large)

Tilemaps, map layouts, etc. are all loaded from classic data on user end. It's fairly common to see unpleasing tile usage like this one inside city areas, it's just how the game data is and it's nothing to worry about.

The extra character is also from classic data, it's a separator character used to delineate questions. In this case, the final question has a separator and no following questions in the data, so the separator is parsed into plain text. This is something we can fix on our end now this text data is stored in localisation asset tables. Thanks for the spot. :)

You're welcome! I figured the tile thing was a Classic issue, I just did't know if it was on the fix list or the no worries list so I figured I'd say something. If I find more issues, should I make a new thread or continue posting here? Most of the stuff I run into is either weird or minor.

Same tile in classic (not in winter, sorry):

In general I think one issue by report is best, as it helps keeping track of the status of each separately...
