thanks for the link mate good work

Who are the admins of the wiki?

Ran around with a clown mask before it was cool

I personally dont know but I'm sure some other people might (I dont want to be one cause I dont really know how to edit a wiki very well)

The original creators don't seems to be active anymore. They haven't showed up for about a year now, so I assume that no one is an admin really. Few people are editing stuff from time to time, as you have seen, but, sadly, there is no organized "wiki-effort" going on.

That sounds like a little problem. Is anybody still in contact with the creator?

Ran around with a clown mask before it was cool

I don't think so. Anyway, why is this a problem?

Because some things require admin rights, deleting duplicate articles, for example.

Oh, I didn't know that... Maybe try writing to the wiki staff and explaining that original author gone inactive. They might give you the rights.

If no one else wants to become admin I'll ask them.

It might be good to request me as a admin so I could add other people if others to inactive.

Do you have a wiki account?

Ran around with a clown mask before it was cool

I do now :P Nickboom is the name

I don't know the code and other wikia's inner workings good enough to be an useful admin

Per Malacodor's suggestion, I've created a Wiki link in the site's main menu. It should make it a bit easier for new players to find, in case they don't visit this forum.

Hope this helps!

Thank you dcfedor!

The wikia staff now finally gave me admin rights. Nickboom is an admin, too, so if I should be eaten by a dogman he can appoint another one.

Is Nickboom still around?

I'm currently pimping up the wiki. On this page http://neoscavenger.wikia.com/wiki/Medium_Chunks_of_Meat you can see a warning box at the top and an info box with picture and stats on the right side.

I'm unsure about the colors of the currently blue bars and the backgrounds of both boxes. Which colors (preferably RGB-values) would you like to see?

I'd be interested in adding a few guides and tables. Any chance of me uploading these in word and excel and letting you guys take over from there? I've never done Wikipedia.

A weapons comparison table would be nice. Right now all I could state with confidence would be effective ranges, value, and ammo cost. It would be awesome if we could quantify base damage accurately. I could run a short experiment to approximate how many hits it takes to kill a looter or something. But there are too many unknown variables to this games combat system for this to be all that reliable. I suspect enemies have armor values because of the ammo types I see in game.

I wish the effects of clothing were more transparent. Does it reduce damage? How much cold resistance does each piece offer?

1. Create a wiki account.
2. Click "Contribute" in the top right corner.
3. Choose "Add a Page".
4. Name it "Weapon Comparison".
5. Choose "Blank Page".
6. Click "Add a Page".
7. Start writing.
8. Click publish.

Creating a table is a bit more difficult, though, but I can do that for you.

Forget about experimenting, we have the exact damage numbers. However, they are of limited use without the formulae they are used in.

Currently, there's no armor. Different ammunitions probably just cause different damage types (bruising/cutting) or a different mix thereof.

Cool. Maybe someone who understands the damage system already could fill in those bits. At least an approximation of some sort for the sake of comparing weapons. Where could I find these numbers?

I'll see what I can do as far as guides and such.

The wiki page is cool. Didn't need to sign up or anything. I added some details here or there. Not much more to say as far as I see.

I started a guide to profitable offensive combat against looters/raiders/bandits. Right now hunting humans is what I do for fun. Hunting dogmen is risky and not that profitable. Its hard to balance the details against rambling on and being confusing. Its about 10% done, I'd like to see what ya'll think when I finish it, I might make a more general guide later.

Yes, it's not necessary to have a wiki account, but having one makes it easier for other wiki authors to communicate with you. You don't have to register, if you don't want, but I would appreciate it.

Edit: Never mind, got it.

I've finished the guide. Feel free to add to it.

I've been adding detail where I can to weapons and items. A lot of the uses for each item and skill aren't obvious. I've been playing for two weeks and I still find new things out here or there. I think we could give a lot more insight about these items and tell new players what there is to be excited about each one. Except maybe pebbles, they're pretty boring.

I just noticed you guys added the damage estimates. That's awesome, I may work on that comparison table in a few days. I can count the notches on the bars shown but it would be nice if someone double checked me who has the raw numbers.

My additions seem to be cluttering up the pages somewhat and some border on being merely speculative. I plan to do some labeling and organization wherever possible and have begun doing so. Mainly I'll be labeling my sections which are "Tips" and pushing them toward the bottom.

Move the cursor over the bar, your browser should show you the address of the image. E.g. "Status Bar Yellow 12.png" means it has 12 notches. However, the bars differ by 5 notches, so the differences should be visible without counting notches. It's not an exact damage benchmark, just enough to see which of two weapons is better.

Edit: I modified the images of the bars a bit - no more notches, but blocks instead.

Yeah, better to just consider it a visual version of a letter grade ranking
