Like the page... a few tips

This looks like a great page to help beginners. I think it deserves to be linked to from the main page. Next for this page would be to link key words to their pages. Unless the desired style is a clean look without links all over, in which case their should still be a spot that has relevant links.

Also, this page could benefit from having sections. A section is created by adding equal signs before and after the section title. Always use at least four equal signs, two before and two after. For a subsection put three equal signs before and three more after.

If others only care to write the raw text I'll gladly help with the formatting described here.

Agreed! Awesome start on this page =) Something to consider is to divide out the guide into 3 levels or more...beginner guide, intermediate guide, and advanced guide.

Beginner guide should cover the basics, how to do basic tasks like moving, construction, growing and harvesting. Nothing about why stuff are done, just how-to do stuff. Intermediate guide is where tips are posted. Advanced guide is where geeky starts, tips and tricks pushing to the extreme. For this page, I recommend treating it as a Beginner guide (we can rename this page later, for now just need content). Intermediate guide and Advanced guide can be a whole new page by themselves, and later linked together.

For those that didn't notice, this page was driven from Reddit. Here is the thread...

The Beginner guide should deal with the first few days/week of crash landing. Setting up some basic farms, getting stuff hauled, building a common room, etc...

Intermediate will be building the colony up. From getting power for defenses and an indoor freezer. How to setup a proper food production chain, etc...

Advanced would deal with hydroponics, crafting of clothing and weapons, brewing beer, trading, medical issues, trade ship items, how to make money, etc...

I think it would be good to include some pictures for some of the more unknown areas (Colonist passion under Work tab) of the game.

I'll be glad to type up some more stuff. College classes are killing me right now. So it might be a little while for me to write up some more stuff.

Do either of you know how to make a new page? Over on the Fabrics page we're missing (Camelhair; & Alpaca wool). I was looking into some clothing stats to update info here on the wiki. And I saw that we were missing those 2 from the list. Didn't want to screw anything up so I made a discussion there yesterday.

To create a new page, simply type [[PAGE_NAME]] into the page you want to link from. After you submit, you will see that link as RED, indicating that link as Wanted Page. Simply click into that wanted page you just created, and you can start editing the new page.

I am currently trying to put together an Editor guideline so editors can follow a similar format throughout. In the meantime, don't worry about following any guideline. Just think about making it look neat and precise. Cheers!
