  • Hello, about this png, it was already uploaded in 60.60 and 48.48, why 51.54 ?

    And a black font is not an improvement ? I'm ok with transparency but black font ?

    I think the inventory view is better personnaly !

    • I certainly agree with you regarding the quality of the inventory image. For a while, I was puzzled that the wiki's standard icon for {{Item}}, {{Armor}}, and {{Weapon}} templates were smaller images with black backgrounds. I then noticed that these templates were all trying to reproduce the results of the Examine function.

      I had been originally uploading .png files from my own inventory view, but switched when I realized what the template authors were trying to achieve. The black background merely matches that of the surrounding box, of course. A transparency would probably allow a greater latitude of future use, but the quick, cut-and-paste method I use does not produce transparencies.

      My quick, cut-and-paste method also produces a variety of image sizes. My primary intent here is to provide images which are currently missing in the wiki. My replacement of the images you originally provided was due to both mistaken identity on my part, and a second thought - again, on my part.

      The mistaken identity was thinking I might have provided the original image since it had a gray background (Note that I was viewing this from the armor item's page, and not from the image's own page.). The second thought was in re-using the original file name you provided instead of Junk_fortress_junk.png as I originally intended. Once I noticed the unique spelling of the original image file, I just forged ahead to complete the job.

      I hope that the Fallen Earth Wiki user base continues to expand to a point where nuances such as standard image sizes and background transparencies can be given the attention they probably should receive. If you have an interest in helping us visually document more of our non-imaged items, we certainly would appreciate any assistance you can provide.

      Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts with me, Agaard.

    • If you use Photoshop it's quite easy to make the background of the .png transparent.

  • Thanks for the welcome. Good looking wiki you've got here.

    • Yes, I'm also pretty impressed with what the community has put together here. It doesn't have as large a registered user base as many wikis, but the content is incredibly deep.

  • I've been on hiatus from the game\wiki.

    I've noticed you've taken charge of administration since then.

    In my opinion, you're doing a wonderful job.

    If there is anyway I can be of assistance just let me know, although I don't know how frequently I'll be checking in, I'll still get back to you as soon as I can

    Best of luck to you :)

    • I would love to assist you, as well. Feel at liberty to provide guidance where you can, when you can. I think it is important for the wiki to maintain continuity with its past as it endeavors to move forward. Thanks for touching base with us.

  • 'ello!

    Could you please take a look at NPC: Cindy Loom?

    This NPC exists simultaniously in four different locations. What's the best way to sort this one?

    • On one hand, NPC: Cindy Loom is a seasonal event-based character who will likely disappear once the season has ended. On the other hand, this is exactly the kind of timely information the wiki needs. Once the event has concluded, the pages can be annotated to indicate they were used during the 2013 Christmas event.

      We have a similar situation with Mutation: Annie Hall. The linked page is used as a disambiguation page leading to several, distinct location-based pages for this character. I think something similar could be used in this case.

  • I went ahead and re-added the item fields to this template. This is used in queries by the Item template. Basically, it allows an item page to look up which NPCs sell said item and displays them on the item page. Refine_Steel_Instructions is a good example of how this displays.

    No need to force resaves on all NPC merchants and trainers. The site will eventually do that silently ater a couple days.

    • Thanks for catching and fixing this, Kindragon. After I finished the half-completed project of dropping the "Item: " prefix, I went about eradicating the prefixes inclusion in the templates.

      I could not see how that particular change would create the problem, and simply went ahead with it. I'm glad you took the time to sort it out. Thanks a bunch. I think that function is pretty important to our item pages.

  • Hey there. I've started picking up the game every little while again. Decided I'd focus a bit more on the maps for the various regions.

    The Plateau sector maps seems to still be fairly accurate, so I'm going to continue on the counties in Northfields. I'm about 80% done with Union Plains, then I'll probably work on getting Windshift Watch or the Northern Expanse mapped out. There's a lot of empty space in the counties, so it takes awhile to complete one.

    • I'm glad to hear it. That's definitely a great project to complete for the wiki. Thanks for taking it on, Kindragon.

    • I am as well! Your maps are absolutely outstanding Kindragon. Keep up the good work =)

  • Hi, Qailor!

    I happened to be swinging through and wanted to offer my services in sprucing up the main page. If you're interested, I can flesh it out a little more, including making things a little more snazzy by using images rather than a collection of links ;) I generally attempt to stick with the theme already present. I also noticed the box on the right side tends to cut off, so I can fix that as well.

    Best regards,

    Raylan
