2018-02-02 Update Complete

I've finished copying the export data. The wiki is now (mostly) up to date for 0.6. There may be some categories that need to be touched up. I plan to go through all of them one last time today. Blocks, block groups, items, quests, and schematics are all up to date. Everything is now fair game for descriptions and improvements. ~CptTwinkie

2018-01-05 Preparations Complete (mostly)

Twenty Eighteen...that phrase will take a while to get used to. I have written a rather large news post and changelog so I'm making use of that nice expandable template I worked out. There have been a lot of organizational changes lately but no content. As far as I can tell, I've reached the end of 0.6 organization and I'm ready to move on to data exporting. Hopefully I'll be flooding the wiki with data updates soon. ~CptTwinkie

Change Log

2018-01-03 Happy New Year!

Progress continues on the 0.6 preparations!

  • I updated the wiki style a little bit for the default theme and the templates. It's a collection of subtle changes but I like it.
  • Template:Draft was added because it finally seems like we're at a point where many articles are incomplete but others are functionally complete. That seems a good fit for the standard wiki use of draft and stub.
  • I'm working on a guide in my free time that gives some documentation to the game saves. I'm working on annotating save files for those who are interested.
  • There is the new Key template which provides key graphics. You can use that when you're talking about shortcut keys.
  • The Tag template got a 0.6 update and new categories for the new tags.
  • Template:Expandable created. This basically lets you add forum style spoiler sections that can be expanded or collapsed.

My next task is to come up with some organization for the new research system. I'll probably be adding templates for quests and updating the schematics template. Hopefully I'll complete that by the end of the week and then I'll only have a few minor tasks to finish up before I can begin working on exporting data. I have to do a little bit of code research before I get started but hopefully I'll be able to export a lot more than in 0.5.

The things I know for certain I won't be exporting are planet and environment data. This means all information about kingdoms, biomes, wonders and flora will be manual entry. If anyone wants to lend a hand, the planets category is a good place to start. The Engineer's Book category also needs content. Get as detailed as you want there but stop short of adding actual quests/research. I'll be exporting as much of that information as possible. There will likely be a quest category with a research quests sub-category that can be linked to for that information.

It looks like I'm going to be keeping busy for some time to come. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Happy New Year 2018! ~CptTwinkie
