CL wiki page needs a big of updating

Postby DeBelgian » 18 May 2017, 18:52

I'm reading the CL Wiki page so I know how to play the role better, and it still references the old map, I adminhelped it and they told me to make a post so that this can get fixed, thank you!

You don't "Need" to post it, you can always contribute to the community/wiki by editing it and making sure are things are up to standard. The only real rule for the wiki is don't make shit adjustments, while this is very debatable on what's shit don't be afraid. I made a page and it really felt good at the end, just don't mess things up and you'll be fine.

He said that he was reading the wiki to learn how to play, dumbass, so he obviously can't update it if he doesn't know what to update.

I changed the references to LV to Solaris Ridge, but the guide is heavily outdated.

Especially the "what else I should be doing," most of which encourages the CL to downright powergame, not to mention it talks about mechanics that were removed from the game. Well, not most of it , but some of it.

My issue with changing that, is a lot of it is less than "This does this now" changes, I don't want to end up end up encouraging something or contradicting the lore.

Hmm, that's fair. You might want to have someone peer review your changes before actually putting them in IMO.

Some things to point out and change

From the "In character things to remember" Section

- WY does NOT make most of the Marines' guns, Armat Battlefield Systems does.

Fax Machine Section

- IF I remember right, there is no "Internal Affairs Stamp" for the Liaison to use on their papers now.

- The last paragraph mentions you'd get a job ban for going planetside, while the rules state the Liaison may go down at any time without permission.

Fax Tips

- If you wanna get technical the people responding to your faxes are mods and admins, not just mods, primarily the latter in forms besides basic feedback or objectives.


What Else Should I Be Doing

- The page offers the idea of giving space drugs in a flask, which is illegal and could get unwitting new liaisons in trouble.
- The Commander does have a booze storage still, but more than one and in a proper cabinet, not a bible. Would help to imply you should ask them for it and not just take it (IE: steal)
- Yet another mention of bugging Doctors for space drugs with no indication this is illegal
- It offers you to join the Engineers in their independent projects, despite the fact that you are not an engineer and probably shouldn't be building.


PMCs

- It would help to note that the CL likely doesn't know about the Commandos.
- Stating that the CL is most likely to be spared by the Commandos is misleading because 9/10 they'll just kill you anyway.

Equipment

- A random guide to winning the battle game seems somewhat out of place.


Unless anyone has some ideas otherwise, I'll be making the changes to reflect the notes above soonish.

Don't forget encouraging the CL to go get attachments and insulated gloves, which seem kinda powergamey.

Made the changes outlined earlier as well as removing the powergamey bits. Could use some additions to make it a bit of a beefier page if anyone has useful information or tips.

The issue with CL as opposed to like.. I dunno, medic per say as far as the wiki goes, is that 99% of the stuff that you do is stuff that you've gotta come up with on your own. Anything else looks powergamey or self-antaggy

I'll get round to this when possible but my current focus is on updating the alien pages when I have spare time, albeit I'm going to be fairly busy over the next few months so it'll be slower progress then usual, either way, I'll get round to it.
