  • How are you able to create the ship models (such as the one in the Eagle Mk II interior)?

  • Please make your video available again, it is my most favourite and I watched it every day!

  • Hey, Univero. You have the ability to edit Template:ShipInfobox, correct?

    If so, could you do me a favor and replace all of the text in that template with the text at Template:ShipInfobox/sandbox? All that you need to do is copy/paste it, I've previewed it in articles and everything's in working order.

    The updated version of the template in that sandbox has all of the same parameters as before, but with two additions (Armour Hardness and First Produced to note the in-universe date that a ship debuted). I also reorganized the layout around a bit and made the underlying code text a little neater.

    Once the template has been updated, I'll go through the ship pages later today or tomorrow and add the new parameters myself.

    • The talk of migrating to new template was not so much CSS, since that can be done fairly easily (there were already attempts to make it look like Elite by FishTank if I remember correctly), but rather the fact that we utilize Module:ShipInfobox to make things work and look better

      Since this is a rewrite of the infobox I would've liked if there were more discussions as to why the new style is better, as well as if there would be any additions or complications with the associated Module.

      I'll go ahead and ask then: Why is the new style better? What fields are added? What fields are removed?

      Right of the bat there's one issue I see. When I look at an infobox of a faction-locked ship I can't from a glance see if it is faction locked or not anymore, I have to look through Overview to check if there is a 'Faction' field.

    • As I told Univero, all the parameters or fields that were in the template before the revision are still in the template after the revision. I was very clear on that, I wasn't trying to attempt anything experimental and I tested my revisions before they were implemented. Only two additional fields were added: Armour Hardness and Years Produced. Three superfluous headers, Ship values, Expansion Content, and Faction Specific, were removed since the template was already lengthy and pushing into lower sections on the articles.

      Ship values only had MLF under it, so MLF was moved into the section for ship stats, Default Specifications. Expansion Content and Faction Specific also had too little info under them to justify being separated, so they were condensed into the Overview section with other meta data like Cost and Manufacturer.

      Overview is meant to cover everything about who makes the ship and how to obtain it (cost, any required faction rank, any required expansion). Default Specifications is all base ship stats, and the Maximum Non-Engineered Specs is just the old Maximum/Upgraded Versions section with an updated name.

  • Greetings. I'm new to this place, but I signed up because I wanted to add the missing ships to the "Ships" page.  I like using it to compair ships a lot, and having some ships missing from it annoys me.  So instead of just telling other people to do it I wanted to help by doing it myself. Afterall, if noone is already adding those ships it means they propably dont have time to do so currently. However it sais the source is locked (which I expected but still). Seeing you're named as the moderator of this wiki I wanted to ask if I could have permission to add those ships to the "Ships" page.

    I'm not a diehard fan of Elite Dangerous who plays it all the time, nor have I played for years. But I do enjoy it. I dont know the ins and outs of the game either, but adding some more lines to a table (with the info of the ships already being on the wiki on their own seperate pages) shouldnt be to hard.

    Also, looking at recent comments on the "Ships" page the lack of the new ships seem to be mentioned a lot.



    So yeah. I'd like to help do that little thing if I may.

    If you have any questions (and I'd understand if you do, seeing I'm new and you dont know me) I'm open.

    • Hi Ethribin, yes it says only "established registered users" can edit the ships page. It means you have to contribute by adding other content to this wiki first. If you want to edit only the ships page then you should ask SpyTec for permission.

    • Alright. Thank you :D

  • I've added Content Moderator rights. Since last year you understand how wiki workflow works and how to structure articles. With this you can protect articles, delete and move files and use rollback feature.

    With rollback it should only be used when there's vandalism, what it does is revert all their edits to last edited by different user and hides the edits from Special:WikiActivity

  • Update to "Council of Admirals" article, very much appreciated.  The article I'd cited in comments was more the product of research too - GalNet is kind of an ongoing tabloid of events which, it seems, might leave it more prone to error if not reviewed as carefully.  Also of note, the "Assembly" is often referred to as the "Alliance Parliament" which suggests a PM might need the confidence of the 'House' to select a leader.

  • Do you know who created the images you added to some of the rare goods?

    There is a competition being run on the Forum by FD, that this type of thing would be ideal.

  • Hey, dude, if you take my Screenshots from the Forum and publish them as yours, at least give credit to the person who made it. Or, at least, ask if you can steal stuff.

    • Hi, lots of screenshots on this wiki were not made by the users who uploaded it. They're used to enhance articles with visual information. Nowhere do I and most other users claim those screenshots as their own. For example I uploaded the logo of NASA, but don't claim it as my own.

      You can add author information to images by clicking on More Info and then add a description.

  • Hey!

    Lets not change the gallery for all articles, best to keep it to one style, i.e. default, on all except specific articles agreed upon from discussion

      Loading editor
    • Hi, okay it uses less space and centers the images on the page which improves navigation and viewing. The default gallery has the images aligned to the left side and uses more space with less images per row.

        Loading editor
    • Using less space doesn't make it better, nor does it help with keeping consistency between articles. Centering is arguably just a personal preference, and thus should be kept to a default

        Loading editor
    • Well when images use less space in a gallery by having 4 images instead of 3 per row means it requires less time to navigate a gallery and more images can be viewed at the same time. That makes it more efficient and saves space. Keeping consistency can be done by making it the same in all galleries. Whether it's better is subjective though. I can change it if you prefer the old style with more space between images and 3 images per row.

      Update: I've changed the galleries to regular.
