Updating main namespaces pages with C# content
« on: August 20, 2020, 02:20:10 AM »
Please correct me if I'm wrong, but I assume that the C# version of Aurora is now the defacto standard and no longer experimental (since we're on minor version 11 already).

I'm looking to update a couple of pages that are now outdated, as they refer to mechanics, values or actions that are only available in the VB6 version.  So I'm looking for guidance on the best way to do this.

For a (bad) example: hxxp: aurorawiki. pentarch. org/index. php?title=Mineral_Shortages

1) Update the pages in the main namespace to just reflect the latest version
2) Update the pages in the main namespace, but add Note where this differs from the VB6 version
3) Recreate the page in the C# namespace and link between them

What's the right course of action here?

I would recommend handling it like the Dwarf Fortress Wiki does.

At the top of each page is a link to each of the major versions, plus an indicator of which version's page you are currently viewing.

Go ahead :)

Haha, yeah I realize the wiki contributor population is a teensy tiny bit smaller for this game than it is for Dwarf Fortress :P. I'm grateful for all the contributors that exist though!

Just wanted to make sure you were aware of the idea.

I'm working on creating a cheatsheet and reference book using mdBook and zola which will be open source so others can contribute to it. I think I'll be done with the draft by the end of the week, but it may take a bit longer.
