  • Hello. I'm FairFight , bureaucrat of polish Stalker wiki.

    I wondering if it wouldn't be a problem, if we took some informations (translation and sources) and screenshots from your LA Wiki fandom and posted in ours. We are going to expand our Wiki Fandom by basic informations of Lost Alpha mod so I presume LA Wiki would be perfect place to find some info.

    Cheers :)

  • Hey man, how are things going? Hope you're doing fine.

  • Update it myself...  Well, that is a valid point.  However, couple of things:
    1.  I made an edit a few days ago on another item and it was somehow 'undone'.  Not sure why someone would disagree with the edit since the item in question is, in fact, different in 1.4005. Maybe I didn't save it appropriately or maybe someone disagreed.  Who know.  It's gone nontheless.
    2.  I just started LADC because I miss STALKER and I do silly stuff like try to enjoy the game (and find my old favourite gun by peeking in a Wiki).  Arguing in forums is less fun.
    3. I suppose instead of a quick 'you're right, gun is different' affirmation of another's observation,  or maybe a wiki note like "caliber is 7.62x39 in version 1.4005", I could direct them to my own personal blog and sling poo at the devs.  Oh wait, that's been covered.

    So, here we are.  Let's agree to a few things, shall we?
    1. Some folks that have decided other games suck and come back to their old favourite STALKER for new content or mods will inevitably end up with LADC, 1.4005 or whatever may happens next.  They will have questions and comments based on inconsistencies between versions.  The welcome wagon could be a little, shall we say...'welcoming'.
    2. I will, for my part, try to update information as it pertains to version 1.4005.  Not every little item since I want to actually play it and try to get through it, but pass on information from time to time.  I even made a real profile so maybe edits will last more than one night and instead of being an anonymous "fandom user", administrators or members of this forum can contact me regarding validity or lack thereof.
    3.  Items can be informational facts or opinions.  "Im playing 1.4005 and the groza that i got from yantar is a different groza that is OTs-14-4A 7.62mm" is correct.  Whoever posted that made a simple statement.  It was not a question asking for an answer.   Information is valuable.  You know what they say about opinions.

    Now then, we have obviously gotten off on the wrong foot.  I spent lunch typing into the annonymous void to strangers instead of simply enjoying my pork chops. Like it or not, 1.4005 Devs cut exists, bugs and flaws and all.  Neither the first person to comment nor I made the game (as far as I know...ha ha) and I'm only interested in relaying information that shows the differences.   Some people won't take a quest if the payoff is different from expected , or maybe the game will flat out crash.  I dig STALKER....flaws and all.  You obviously do to.    Cool?

    • Yeah, well the mil doc mission from Sid is easy, so go and read my edit of your comment and think again. It's probably too late for the Documents Thread to be rescued anyway.

    • If it were easy, there wouldn't be a bunch of comments, youtube videos, and other "how to's" on the exact path needed to complete it or the disparity between recommended methods based on game version.  The mission may have flat out broke early on anyway.  After the magical Ten o'clock 'you're good to go' message and a couple of fails, I gave up.  I researched the 'tricks' and gave it another try.  However, after some re-attempts:  The ten oclock 'good to go' message may or may not happen.   Very strange.  Mission selected....sitting in the trees waiting for 10...then nothing.   Tried at a few times at night, early a.m. with same results.  Not too concerned with it....it's got flaws anyway.  I read that if you get caught, run, and get the fail you get stuck with a suitcase in inventory.   Too buggy for me to worry about.

  • Hello, i have an idea. In a future, i plan to create page about Arnie's wares and his goods. Because he is only Merchant with uniques, so far. But i need to create more pages about weapons. What do you think?

    • The best and easiest way to go is probably;

      • This way you have the advantage of using the wiki's resources to define when something appears, relative to that release.
      • Later changes are simpler.

    • Ok, i will try.

  • I am nearly finished with cleaning up all the Infoboxes. Most of them were easy: changed recently and used -> migrate to PI; old and not used -> incinerate. But for some I need your guidance:

      Loading editor
    • "I'll take the third one first for $500 Alex..."

      • Template:Infobox Weapon was very buggy on the migration and had a major "width" problem. As you correctly note, Tp:Ib LAWeapon was doing a passable job so mark t:Weapon for the fire...
      • Mark Template:Infobox NPC for incineration too. It only appears on my poser page anyway. Historically, it is a resurrected version of Template:Infobox Character that MindFreak1987 overwrote in favour of the tacky stock templates that Wikia provided originally.
      • Armour. It's going to need a remake like Artifacts (fortunately it doesn't need as many fields. (Logic for this:
      1. loony devs have repurposed suits between v1.3003 and severally over later v1.4 releases. Expect further meddling. Some are even deprecated.
      2. The much heralded 'final release' of DC appears "delayed" from its estimated "early Feb release".. While this is probably just a delay, a LOT of people have noticed instability in the v1.4 engine release to date. Even I might go retro and play v1.3003...)

      There also seems to be something odd happening with images in the Artifact LAWeapon and Faction templates. Any ideas there?

      Overall you have done brilliant work.

    • Weapon and NPC are marked for incineration and Ammunition is migrated and renamed.

      Armor is migrated. You won't see any difference on first look as I have reused the old soc* parameters for backward compatibility. For the new look some manual rework is required, changing to the la* and dc* params (see Monolith suit for a first example).

      And what exactly do you mean by "something odd happening with images"? Any specific articles?

      Good hunting [for sock puppets], Stalker!

  • ...or at least your User blog:Byte Me/DC v1.4005 - The LADC Misery Mod. I hope it is only a caching problem...

    I have added the {{Incinerate}} marker to Template:Infobox Artifact. At first publish I forgot the <noinclude> tags and so your blog got the Marked for deletion category and showed the Incineration MBox near the spot where you showed the Sauron's Eye.

    When I added the <noinclude> everything seemed fine, my sandbox shows no MBox and no category. But your blog still has the MBox and the category!

    I hope it is just a caching problem that will go away when you re-publish the blog...

    Mea culpa, mea maxima culpa...

    • Yeah, there are these adrenaline rush moments.. It seems to have cleared itself up as expected. I will get around to replacing the old instances (one being on my blog - another on my poser page) then it can be safely "electrobathed".

      I find 'My Tools => What links Here' very helpful in the admin toolbar.

    • I'm very loathe to edit other people's comments.
      If you 'deactivate' the [[Template:Infobox Artifact]] on your OP, then only the transclusions should show.

      I think I have caught up on migrating the old Ibox instances. Of course, "Fandom" will probably take a couple of days to catch up.

    • Indeed, that is something to be avoided...

      I have removed the i/b from my sandbox page, so let's wait for the garbage collector to update the caches.

  • Hi Byte Me,

    as promised I have created a new Infobox template to accomodate all the new fancy crap for DC.

    Please have a look at User:ElessarTheOnly/Sandbox to see old and new together and let me know what you think.

    Just two things:

    • I have no idea what the icons look in LA. So far I have used the same as for DC, if you could share some screenshots from LA I will change that.

  • Hope, you're doing well. I'm not dead, just been getting into some other stuff. Like trying to create some low key sound tracks from scratch without using presets.

    • I'm mostly OK. Hope you are too. I'm not a huge fan of v1.4005.

    • Life could always be better until it can't be - I suppose..lol. I've got a lot of better to find myself. I haven't tried it yet(the new vers), been mostly screwing around with trying to write and screw around with making soundtracks.

  • Hi!

    Could you help, please? How to remove a category from a page, for example removing the Articles Needing Images category. There're some pages that had no images attached indeed, but added something there, so these pages could be removed from this category.

    • Think I did a mistake: added the Advanced and Low-voltage flashlights to Basic Equipment category. Maybe you can do something about it. Sorry.

    • It's OK - you're still feeling your way - try adding an Infobox template to some of these pages. Just highlight, copy and paste the code on the template article..

      ..(Obviously, that's not the low level code in the guts of the Template..)
