wiki creation

Post  sirus on Thu Jan 31, 2013 3:47 am

so looking at making the wiki and this will serve as the HQ for the creation, personally i dont have much experience with making wiki's so for me its going to be fun,

over the next few days i'll be looking at some of our options like php, html/css and hosting options,
if anyone has any templates, php designs or experience with creating a wiki then "all aboard"

basicly all this came around from trying to help with ability description so we are hoping to include pic and/or vids of the ability's in action maybe with different ships?

so you can see the undertaking this is going to be =)

Once more into the fray.

I have no clue how to set up a Wiki, but I'd be glad to contribute. If I can convince other people to help, we can even do basic ability Videos!

I'm also going to be contributing to this by making videos of the individual skills in my spare time. It may be slow, but it will be steady.

If it's something to be used on an enemy ship, then we should Stage it properly: One "Standard" ship (an F5 Mercury with Medium shield, and no buffs, for example) which the Multiplayer mode would be Ideal for.

I've made this post "sticky." Anyone who genuinely contributes to this project will have a shrine built for them in game. If you need any resources or higher beta access, that will be provided for you as well. This is something that I'd love to do myself if I had the time, but as you know, we're quite busy trying to finish the game ASAP. So we'd really appreciate this effort on the part of the community Exclamation Very Happy

I hope the wiki visitors do not mind having a Bandicam watermark on the item description videos. I'm thinking something like the TF2 videos?

I'll obviously do the text first (I'm good at that) and could create new pages for skills if someone shows me how. I've also got almost all of the items, my research is somehow bugged out and gray despite me having 3 items left to find!

Then I'll do videos for the more popular active abilities, with the help of you guys. Someone want to play Target for me? Wink

The unlocked bar in the Title Screen includes missions completed and hulls owned in its tally, if memory serves. However, I'm fairly certain there are certain items in the game that can't be obtained through normal means currently. (The game has to be in DEV mode Smile )

Sirus,

What kind of beta access do you currently have? If you want to help out on this project, we'll upgrade you for free. Wink

It's more about the means. It's kinda difficult to spend Money when you don't have a way to send it reliably, independently and legally across the Internet.

So, Sirus. I'm ready to get rolling on the project. Where're you planning to host this wiki? I'll figure out how to edit stuff as I go along, but we need to put it somewhere first. What did you have in mind?

I see the Wiki page is slowly coming to life.

Good work, Sirus.

We need to talk structure sometime so we don't have everything all over the place. Apart from that, I'll be happy to get to work on the wiki soon!

EDIT: I'd approve of a wiki structure like this >Link<

More specifically the Hub Pages List on the left-hand side. We'd categorize ships by their main Archetype and abilities by Node. I remember there being something like "Tags" on a wiki, or categories, where one page could fit into multiple categories. Gonna look into that as well.
Any thoughts?

I would recommend partitioning the work load by nodes or archetypes!

Yeah, pretty much like that. I'll do some comparisons with other wikis such as TvTropes, Wikipedia and the SPAZ wiki to see what strategies work best.

Alright, enough Wikiing for now. I'm getting the hang of it, and spotted the Category tag (Ha! This will be useful later) and basically set up the front page a little.

I have text to spout in masses. I'll probably need a few images as well. If you could all help me out...

Basically what I need is you lot to, each time you win a match and get ship blueprints, RIGHT-CLICK on the ship blueprint, move your mouse out of the way and do a screencap (with snipping tool or whatever). If you can be bothered, make a page for each ship you find and dump the photo on there. If you can't be bothered, then I will be sad. Just upload the image instead and tell us which one you found.

UNLESS the devs are willing to regurgitate the images we need. Are you?

Do you mean a wire frame picture? I could probably supply you with a bunch of those and you could match them up to their respective items.

do we need to do each ship or can we just focus on archetypes? i mean wont all the fighter nodes fit on all fighters so long as you have enough space on that module?

we could do a list of ships later on another page?
