I'm working on a template to tag pages with display/formatting issues. This is a first draft. I have not even settled on a name for it yet. I'm just looking to have someone give it at least a cursory look before it goes up. Once I'm ready I'll give it the full treatment, including documentation.
Here it is: User:Jimyoda#Draft_Template
Your input is appreciated.
Do you have any tips on how to retrieve data from the game files? I'd love to fill in some of the gaps on the wiki, but I'm not sure how to access the information I'd need.
Most of the game's details are in the game folder (wherever you installed it). From there go to \Mods\Core\Defs. That's where most of the interesting XML files are. Just read em with any text editor.
Notepad++ and a lot of other text editors can make it easier on you by offering a Find in Files feature. Set a directory and a search term, and it'll look through all of them. So maybe I wanna see every reference to monkeys... Ctrl-Shift-F, "Monkey", enter. Double-click any result to open that file and jump to that line. :>

Some of the ultra basic nuts and bolts of the game are buried in DLLs, but the vast majority is just XML.
They do not spoil. Deterioration is how fast they deteriorate while left outside and uncovered. If you click on one stored at an interior storage location it has no spoilage date.
