  • Hey there Sxerks,

    Just wanted to let you know that we're going to be streaming Wasteland 2 tomorrow on our Ustream channel at 3:00PST. My coworker Matt is making a blog post about it for the Wasteland Wiki, and I jsut wanted to check with you to see if we could tag it as news so it could live on the front page for a day or two. We can remove it after if you'd like. 

    If you have any tips for us I'd also love to hear them.

    Thanks!

    • Yep, go ahead.

      As for tips... I started a walkthrough (even though it's still beta) so the location map should be of help to you, as should be the weapons and armor list.

      Make a balanced party with different weapons that use different ammo as ammo is kinda rare. have picklock and safecrack as skills as there are a lot of boxes, someone should have at least one of the kiss/hard/smart ass skills, and field medic and surgeon.

    • Ah, awesome, I'll defintely check out the walkthrough and thanks for the tips as well!

      Feel free to hit me up in the future if you have anything on the Wiki you'd like our designers to help with, or if you have any ideas for new layouts/features you'd like to add.

      Cheers!

  • I've uploaded an image under the filename Pattern.png. Its a tiling image that I thought could be used as a background. Its kind of generic but that way it won't distract from the pages. As long as you set it to "Tile" when you upload it on the wiki-design-thingie it'll be all good (am I still making sense? lol). I haven't tested it out yet so I don't know what it looks like, but... yeah, I dunno where I'm going with this sentence.

    Also uploaded a new wordmark under the filename WastelandWikiWordmark.png (or something like that). Hoping to sort of streamline the look of the wiki, take it away from the very image-centric design and keep it rather minimalistic... sorry, I was channeling my inner-pretentious art student. Anyway these are all possibilities, you don't gotta use them if you don't want to. Otherwise I was looking at working on a new wiki banner and favicon.

    I'll keep you updated. I'm putting off all the hard work for later down the track lol

    • Any graphics should have something to do with the series, we really only have WL1 to go off of for now since WL2(or the beta) isn't out. So we don't know what fonts or styles they will be using.

      We had a similar backgroud a while back, it was generic too, and there is an overuse of browns in post-apocalyptic games, so I kinda want to get rid of the brown.

      The current wordmark is an likeness of the original Title picture using font ocr b. The one you have looks more like a western and doesn't match the original box art

      The favicon is, well, iconic for the series and as minimalistic as you can get. I've done minimalistic on most the 20 or so wikis I admin.

      The wiki-header is from here and will probably have to change when Wikia's Darwin is introduced as the width with change.

    • New wiki skin, huh? Well that makes things complicated. Why can't they just pick a skin and stick with it T_T

    • It's not really a new skin it just self adjusts the width depending on what size screen you have.
