What's your opinion on making the infobox images of stackable things gifs animating between the stack states? I'd image this could only really be useful in the infobox, as other places wouldn't really benefit from it. I think a good example would be for Medicine, as it's used in a wide variety of situations, and only a few of which actually have anything to gain from making it a gif. I've uploaded an example under File:Medicine.gif (purposefully named very similarly to File:Medicine.png), but haven't made any other changes to the wiki.

Test to see if it works, maybe in the sandbox. I haven't seen it yet so can't really decide.

I saw you made the change to rename Glitterworld medicine to Ultratech medicine back in June. I'm playing 1.0 with no mods, and it's definitely called Glitterworld medicine. I'm brand new and don't want to make a change like this myself, just wanted to point it out. Thanks!

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

The name for Beta 19 was indeed Ultratech medicine so I'll assume this change got reverted in 1.0.

Anyway, I will change it as soon as I verify it. Thanks for the reminder.

There are quite a large number of old and/or unused images lying around gather dust (and taking up space, but I have no idea if that's an issue). For images like that, which serve no purpose other than just being there, is slating them for deletion appropriate? I've done so with https://rimworldwiki.com/wiki/File:M-24SniperRifle.png but I would like to know if this is something that is A) allowed and B) going to actually get something accomplished. Thanks ahead of time.

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

I would flag them using the {{obsolete}} template, it shows that they are not used in the current versions and are hence, obsolete.

I wouldn't delete them unless the images are causing issues, however right now there seems to be a duplicate picture, and none are currently in use, so one has been deleted.

Edit: I've linked the image onto the Version history section of the sniper rifle. While it is now in use it would still classify as obsolete.

Cabmoomoo (talkcontribs)

The Orbital Bombardment Targeter, Orbital Power Beam Targeter, and Tornado Generator all use the same image. I have uploaded this image as OrbitalTargeter.png. I would fix the pages myself, but I've never had much luck with templates.

Cabmoomoo (talkcontribs)

On a slightly related topic, is there any way to search through templates available?

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

The regular search function has it, if you select 'Template'.

How do I report someone who is attacking other users without a reason?

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

There isn't a proper report function in here, it's up to the moderators to check the recent changes to see who's acting bad and ban/block them accordingly.

So, I would like if we could came to an agreement over the images in the Colony Building Guide.

Besides the content, I really care about the design of the guide so I added a bunch of pictures to it, however I did not add pictures to every single topic because that would flood the guide and mess up the layout. Likewise, I did not add two pictures to the same topic because that also would mess up the layout and flood the guide with unnecessary images. You, however, have been re-adding pictures to topics that already have a picture and I would like to ask you to stop.

The pictures I added were chosen for a reason. I intentionally changed the hospital picture into something more compact, changed the prison picture to include cells and changed the greenhouse picture to include 24 hydroponics, all just to please you.

If you think your pictures add something important then tell me and I will add that something into my pictures, but please stop re-adding your pictures if they have nothing to add because it messes up the guide.

If you can agree with that I can make that guide like nice and pretty again.

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

Alright, I'll agree to that. You're free to replace any of my images if you think you have a better alternative. Though for the most part several images can coexist, and honestly unless the image is actually misleading or otherwise making things worse it's better to leave it as it is and add another image instead.

For the hospital I think is mostly for reference- in actual gameplay until you have a massive colony in place there's no need to squeeze 28 beds into a hospital, and even so few would build it in such a compact manner; still, it could be useful to someone.

Also, I will add feedback depending on the picture, maybe by means of an edit summary.

Gottoni (talkcontribs)

I am just caring about the design, like make a guide good to look at. Yes I know people may add more pictures, but I can at least try to keep things pretty. Excess of image does makes things worse, doesnt it?

There are other problems with the hospital picture. Like 10 vital monitos and 8 dressers for 28 beds is a really bad ratio. I mean, the picture is supposed to be spatially efficient but you filling it up with unnecessary furniture.

Anyway, I dont expect my pictures to be perfect, so tell me if anything needs changing.

I have a full archive of all current rimworld assets, but the inability to update images. Is there anyone i can send it to in order to get that shit started being fixed, cause the mechanoids being outdated in particular irritate the hell outta me

PigeonGuru (talkcontribs)

I also have an archive of assets, though not in .png format; if yours is in such a format, you can send it to me and I'll begin to upload them when I have the time.

Also, IIRC there is an edit requirement before you can upload images or create pages, think 10. If you want to, you can choose to make more edits to the wiki.

Edit: It appears that you have updated some of the images for the mechanoids, meaning that you probably have the ability to upload images. In which case, feel free to update the images as you wish.
