    <link removed>


    Now that 1.3 has been released, the <link removed> is open to public contributions. There are a few guidelines, however.

    1. Always, always, always use templates. These allow us to maintain the style of the wiki, and make it easy for people to contribute. For a list of all templates (including those for common images), check the <link removed> page.
    2. If you are unsure about something, ask first. If you'd like an example, copy the content from an existing, related page, and then make the necessary changes.
    3. When naming a page, simply use the actual name of whatever the page is for.
      • One caveat here; If there are two items with the same name, add a suffix of the type. Example: Mercant (Trait) and Merchant (Specialist).
      • If the default page already exists, it means that it needs to be renamed to reflect the new addition; Contact an admin to move it.
    4. No spam or defacement of the wiki; We have admins who will be checking all contributions, and violators will be banned.

    And that's pretty much all I can think of right now. You must register in order to contribute (cuts back on spam), and if you need an explanation of what tags a template uses, each and every template has a full, detailed description on it's page, accessible via the Help page.

    Thanks for helping make Rise from Erebus even better! :goodjob:



    Now, for the list of Admins...

    • Wiki Admins
      • Black_Imperator
      • Shoggi
    • Team Admins
      • Grey Fox
      • Opera
      • Valkrionn

    More admins may be added in the future, so if you want the job, prove you can handle it via your contributions. ;)

    Moderator Action: The wiki link has been removed because it appears that the domain is now a redirect to a phishing/malware site.

    And here we have another item we've been working on; A blog where we can announce new features, discuss the implications of new mechanics, or just talk about whatever we feel like. :lol: The blog can be found at http://greyfox.me/rife/blog/.

    We also have a convenient little page which links to the Blog, the Wiki, and the Forums; Looks great, too. Grey Fox has done some amazing work on their design. :goodjob: You can find it at http://greyfox.me/rife/.

    And just so you know, there IS some unannounced info in the wiki. I'm rather curious to see how long it takes people to find out who got the Overflow Production ability, for one thing. :p

    Like the Mekaran Order?

    Honestly, I'm looking for more in the "What the heck am I supposed to do with this civ" aka Strategy sections.

    I'll see what I can do about getting a proper strategy text written up for the Mekarans. It might take a bit, though, as I have other issues to deal with as well, at the moment.

    Sorry, Jheral, I wasn't as clear as I thought I was. I meant strategy sections across the board for civs, not just yours. I haven't seen your stuff before, is it new for 1.3 or did I miss a link somewhere?

    Correct on both; Will let the implications sink in, there. :p

    We will be adding them. For now, we're focusing more on getting all units/buildings/etc in, though; Make it as complete as possible, and then add strategy texts.

    New for 1.3, only available to testers. Also only 'modular' because of modular python; His module is very well organized, perfect example of what can be done with the modular system.

    Ah, right. Still, it does need a strategy text; I haven't been that great at documenting the options available to them. :p

    And yeah, it's new. Won't say more than that until it's public, though.

    Well, now. I hadn't expected my work to be held up as a perfect example of anything in particular, but still, thanks. :D

    Heh. Your module is far better organized than anything I ever did, and it shows how modular python can be used. Good example as a result. ;)

    Would be better if it used a modular event file, though; That python file works differently from the spell interface. ;)

    Wait... we weren't supposed to have already seen that page? I found it a few days ago while trying to look up the probability for emergent leader traits (which I didn't see there, but found elsewhere on these forums).

    Anyway, nice Wiki!

    It wasn't hard to google, no. It just wasn't stickied in the forums. ;)

    Found that in Emergent leaders, while Minor leaders take the current mechanic.
    I wonder what is ment by leveling up the trait...

    HA! Didn't even realize that was in the wiki yet.

    You'll have to wait for 1.4 to find out.

    Edit: Also - Stickied. Awesome. :goodjob:

    Hehe, look at all the people hunting for new features.

    Well, they forgot one:

    Written by KillerClowns, yes. Also for a few other leaders, but they should be in 1.3 already so aren't in the 'updated' list. ;)
