This is about the sorta ships/factions aspect of the wiki, which doesn't or shouldn't necessarily reflect what will be in the mod when it comes out. In this case, it makes sense to delete a few that are bad for the sake of keeping up appearances. Don't want someone just popping up and seeing one bad article and leaving disgusted, yes?

And Error, Sad

Spent a good time setting up mediawiki on my webhost...I don't trust sites like forumotion or wikia, it's always a must to have direct access to the files instead of having to wait hours for some guy to respond to your ticket that may or may not have the knowledge to solve it. Google + FTP is master race! But that's just my opinion.

Okay. I am going to overhaul everything on the wiki as soon as I get an account.

Iv, I hope you don't mind me using your logo until I can make a better (well, original) one.

Never thought I'd say this, but God Bless you Facebook. Thank you for your seamless integration into everything.

Also, Mackeroth, in the process of tweaking everything up, touch anything and I will gut you.

From the look of what we currently have I would say that those who develop this mod are a bunch of kids. The wiki's language is very ... unprofessional. You may think of making it in another form and not like a wiki because otherwise you my loose interest in your mod quite fast ...

Also, using your ships in a render on Cinema 4d to make a logo, that fly with you?

Finished. Suggestions?



Otherwise I'll just plop this onto the main page Very Happy

Caltech, can you PM me some lore about your company? I'm going to try to correct the grammatical errors in your pages, if that's fine with you.

Yea , delete it. Out of all possible angles you took the worst angle on the Hyperion plus you took it's smaller version. The human eye likes diagonals. Also with the scenery behind the ship and their wrong lighting they ships look pasted into the picture. You will need to relight the ships and probably pick a better background.

I will upload an updated map for you to use later.

This is in Cinema 4d, 3d modelling program and rendering software all-in-one. The sun is literally behind the planet which is behind the ships, this is realistically what the lighting would look like. Second, there is no background, that's a sphere I put around the whole scene and put a texture on, not something tacked on in paint.net. There were no higher-res dark starry backgrounds that fit well with the picture so I just went with that one.

Thirdly and finally, while I do appreciate your input, this took close to two hours to set up in itself, if you think you can do better you have my blessing.

Mate for making such as thing photoshop is enough. When I was talkin about lighting I was talking about the gamma, which doesn't fit in well. The details of the planet and the low res of the ship also ruin the look. I'll also make something for you to compare if you want ...

Did you make it? If this is bad, the wiki needs a new logo, then, and Cinema 4d is being a little b*** atm, as far as loading the original scene to modify. I think what happened was it defaulted to low-fidelity res on the textures when I went to render it.

Also, I'm going to go ahead and add two portals to the Main Page, one for factions, one for mod suggestions. This way we don't have the two cluttered together. This means that once the pages pop up for all the weapon types it'd be in your best interests to update your page with links to them (as in normal wikis, ie instead of "The super cool dreadnought has 44 laser cannons", you'd have "The super cool dreadnought has 44 laser cannons", this shouldn't be too much trouble for you with mediawiki's edit page), or risk your faction page being edited without your consent >:3

Because clearly every faction has their ships up for download, correct? Forgive my sarcasm, but Iv's ships seem to not only be the sole ones obtainable, but they're also among the highest quality ships on the forum. Makes for a better first impression, you know?

I must note how dumb wikia is. I take a note that if I ever make a wiki this is a wrong place to do it. Have a look:

http://futurecraft.wikia.com/wiki/United_Terran_Navy

I have no idea why the hell is it writing the text out of the freaking page window, with weird php code appearing near it for no reason. You must actually work REALLY hard to make such as bug possible ....

Can you help fixing it ?
Can you also explain me how to put a picture to the right of the text like in any other normal wiki without screwing up my text even further ?

Due to reasons, Exion will be shown on the wiki as well. That is, when "we" get around to it.
