Updated the Equipment page.

Governments page is done (not sure what else to add), Weapons page is up (basic... not sure what else to add), Melee Weapons and the Melee Weapons NavBar are done.

Categories may not be the best for the Melee Weapons, but I wanted to categorize them somehow other than damage type (Cutting/Piercing/Stun/etc). Melee Weapons NavBar needs so many pictures.  :-[

Also, some formulas on the Melee Weapons & Equipment pages may not be 100% correct.

I might skip to Kidnapping/Hostages before tackling Ranged Weapons and NavBar. Although, not looking forward to Black Market/Manufacturing/Research pages either...

Basically, since they are comprised of purebloods, mutants and aliens, and they are undermining the Star Gods' power.

The definition of allies is a bit blurry. Raiders are almost the same as your band of pirates (except not as good), and you fight and hire mercenaries at the same time.

Smugglers are humans plus a few aliens, including catgirls who still cannot be enslaved. I avoided killing the captain however since the brainers seemed to like him a bit too much.

Ranged Weapons Navbar is up but still trudging through all of the Ranged Weapons (partially complete); still have Shotguns, SMGs, Sniper Rifles, Supernatural and Miscellaneous to finish.

Some of the ranged weapons probably aren't categorized correctly but once the data is in, it's just a simple cut and paste.

Hey Draco: 

I'm working on capturing all of the BootyPedia screen.  These images might be useful for individual item pages.  I have all of them for the Starting Entries, and am about halfway done cropping and naming them. 

I'll work on the full bootypedia using Debug when that is done.

I'm not sure the best way to upload them to ufopedia.org, though.  Nor how to best incorporate them into the work you are doing.  I can share them in Dropbox if that would be useful.

Also, I hugely appreciate all the work and effort you are putting into this. :)

First off, thank you for appreciating it, gives me motivation to finish. I have been focusing on doing it for myself right now because otherwise I would have gave up awhile ago since trying to devise a layout that presents enough information without becoming cluttered has been difficult as well as sorting through the data. :P

For images; it's kind of tough. UFOpaedia never really got a good way to multiple uploads so it's just a lot of tedious single file uploads (also a reason I skipped it. Other reason is I am terrible with graphic editors atm.).

If you check the pages, I generally already have a "sample" (Example page / Example filename Uniform_Annihilator_Piratez.gif, .png is best, .gif work too) picture as well as most of the filename patterns (you can check the source or just ask me a question here, UFOpaedia talk page, or Steam or however you like if you aren't sure). The hammer image you uploaded probably won't be used as most of that information will be in infoboxes. However, that will be great for Research articles... but Dioxine already mentioned not wanting to use the backgrounds for purposes (aka l e g a l mostly). So... yeah.

Anyway, this is the convention the site is using for weapons/armor/equipment/etc:

X-Com: UFO Defense

X-Com: Terror From The Deep
  • Weapon
  • Armor - I think Research picture were utilized here as TFTD had art backgrounds, rather than the inventory sprite. I think X-Com: UFO's armor page is better.
  • Equipment

XCOM: Enemy Unknown

XCOM: Long War Mod

I'm trying to follow Long War layout, as I feel that's the best aesthetically of the other examples.

Sorry for the wall of text.

Thanks Draco!!  I'll look into how best to upload and include them. 

For now, here is a link to the images in Dropbox.  I've sorted them into folders that match the Bootypedia sections.  These are only the Starting Entries.   At a minimum, it could be useful for someone in the Inventory screen that wants to look at the entries in another window.

Sorry, forgot to mention this in my wall: one reason screenshots of the inventory isn't necessarily a good idea is because the information can change and then you'd have to update the screenshot each time, whereas the sprites generally don't change (especially in actual released games like vanilla X-Com). (And editing text is way easier/faster than cropping and uploading and resizing and sdgfsdfgsdfg image adjusting stuff)

Again, I really appreciate the help because it's a lot of work (it took Dioxine two years to make all of it :P), and I know how long trying to get the images just right can be a pain. Just trying to save yourself some time if you decide to keep helping (please do!).

Sounds good Draco.  :)

Yeah, I realize these can get out of date and stale, and that by far the work you are doing is much more in line with the outstanding comparisons and analysis that ufopaedia.org is known for.  I'm going to at least get up this starting set, and caveat it as .95c.

I'll look closer at how best to grab just sprites to help with the tables that you are doing too.

I know the Wiki is just starting up, but I noticed the armors are missing the important stats, like their special abilities relating to Stamina/ TUs etc.

Make sure you expand the infoboxes below instead of just looking at the quick reference table.

Nothing is missing, good sir. It's just that there is so many things, I have most stuff default collapsed rather than getting hit with a super long page.

Hey Draco: :)

I tried uploading BigObs for the weapons, (started with the Melee list).

I saw your reversion and comment, asking where they should go, (column, etc).   

I was following your suggestion to use the "Long War" wiki format, and putting them above the item name. 

Its cool if you want them somewhere else.  Just let me know.

Also. ufopaedia.org is being a pig for me.  It works for an hour or two, then becomes very unresponsive.  Hours later it might come up again.  This limits how much I can accomplish with uploads/edits in a session.  <grrr>

Cheers, Ivan :D
