  • Hey Hfelton,

    This seems to be the only source of real information about the game, but it looks like you're pretty much the only person here. I'd like to help start formatting pages and laying out information so it's more readable, but I don't know where to get started. Maybe ships? I can certainly add info on ships that I have.

    I don't know how to pull the data files out of the game to look at locally, but I see that you have some stuff up already.

    I also feel like I don't know a lot about the game in general, and there's no good place to learn, right now. So I'm hoping I can contribute something to the wiki so this doesn't happen to anyone else!

    • howdee,

      welcome welcome !!! yes, it would be great to have someone (you!? :) who could help out around here... ships are really just waiting for me to finish up some code (programming) and they would all just sort-of magically appear...

      ships, like characters, have most of their information stored in a file-type called 'module'... if that makes sense, i can explain further, and we could discuss programming-type stuff... lets go ahead and hold those thoughts about ships for a bit tho...

      learning about the game is something that i think could do with a hand - if you think you'd like to try it... here is an example: right now, i made the menu-system up at the top with some items called 'Gameplay'... i even have a page Talk:Gameplay which is a place to talk about the gameplay...

      what i am going to do is 'fix' the page and make it blank again - if you have any ideas - GO FOR IT !!!

      i will stop babbling now - but if youd like to chit-chat further, we also have the Special:Forum which might even have a thread or two that is useful (or you can start one)...

      sincerely, harold.

      [[eta: go to gameplay and mess around - like a scratch space if you want...]]

    • Thanks Harold,

      For what it's worth, I'm actually a software developer. I don't know much about the Wikia format, however. I'll need to brush up. Is that raw text that appears there the module? I see some hash looking structures, and perhaps where the variables are inserted.

      I've done  a little bit of Android development, but I don't know how to data dump out of the game. It sounds like you might not need that, however.

      I'll have to start tracking some of the pitfalls and things that I run into as I play the game. I've definitely noticed that the description of abilities on ships and characters is not always consistent. I'd like to do a finer study of the Arena point system, as well. Does it always taper down to 5 points per game? How best to get the most points? Is 3000 points in a week at all reasonable?

      And for more of those abilities with a pitfall, some writeups on how the work and how the actual function differs from the description.

      -Nathan

      howdee nathan,

      ok - since youll probably understand it - ill go ahead and setup a thread in the forums (?) to start documenting wth im doing... go to the forums-> question-answer-board-> can-you-explain-thread (#1160) ... Direct link

    • i just reread your comments and realized that you are fairly new to this game... it is VERY quirky, as you have realized, and maybe a better.different place to start (rather than that forum-description-thread i just linked-to) would be an older page i setup called Questions...

      ... and more generally, for any page, feel free to add a TRIVIA section which we can use to help document some of the quirks... for instance, see Enterprise B ... when i first received that ship, i was unable to activate the bug described, but after awhile i did (and continue to) encounter it... i have not done any extensive study of how the bug works, but suffice-to-say i am using it to beneficial effect in my current gameplay...

      hth, h.
