Grr, seems like Wikia.com doesn't provide the most user friendly experience around... Takes forever to work with categories.   :(

I still have most of the floorplan graphics that were on the original wiki. I can upload them later.

That would be awesome, thanks!

I seem to be in a table making mood. Working on Equipment now.

Welcome to the team. Those floor plans would be great for the ship pages, especially if all the rooms were mapped out! Atm I'm just trying to set up category to organize all the ships like this one:

http://web.archive.org/web/20101110232833/http://asciisec.leafstorm.us/index.php/Category:Ships

After this, I'll make a template for a few ships that everyone can work with. Now I would say the wiki has recovered about 70% of the work from the old wiki so far.   8)

Finished the table for Equipment. Liberty, do you want me to link each item to a specific page? You know, for a description and whatnot?

Nice. I think adding links to each item would be redundant so your job there is done for now. Maybe you can add another column and write down the weight of each one of them?

Good idea.
Gonna burn a bunch of credits for this one.
At some point I'll need to add Kilrathi weapons as well, but at this point in my Phoenix save I'm not in a place that I disable and board Kilrathi ships.

If money is an issue then you can reload your game after testing the weight of each item, and I'll do the Kilrathi items for the table tomorrow. Btw, last time I checked I had about 300k worth of Kilrathi weapons from all those capship missions.    8)

I'd thought of that just after I posted...

Awesome on both counts. I'm leaving my CapShip save aside for more updates, though I guess I should rake in more credits for my fines, when CK implements the 'Pay my fines off' feature. I know my dad will definitely be happy for that...

Ship images are up. Only Gothri and Kamekh are missing, I'll try to work on getting floorplans of those. In the meantime, the ship pages still need to be filled out (I only put very basic information in the infoboxes while I put the images up).

I'm starting to get the hang of wiki scripting and categories after reading a couple of tutorials. Do you guys know how to remove a page from a category though?

I believe you can just remove the {{category}} text from the source page.

Can you walk me through on this one? I can't seem to find that tag in any of the pages I create after looking at the sources. For example I add the tag {{Category:Content}} to the Detailed List of Ships page, and it still works but it disappears right after so I can't remove it.

I just need the Category:Ships page to be removed from Category:Content.

Edit: Never mind I just fixed it! I found out you had to go to the visual editor and remove the category items from the right-hand side. Weird, the category tag always disappears from the source code.   :crazy:
