Had to take another break.  I'm not a fan of energy weapons so I hadn't used the X-Pulse or PPC's at all.  Wanted to play around with them some before I wrote about them.

That reminds me: Let me know if you need a second person at some point to make shots of the different weapons in-game.

Um... that would actually be really nice.  What I was originally going to do was get all the different posts up and then start a contest where people could submit pictures for the weapons that lack ones, with public voting and all that, but if anyone wants to get started on getting shots of the weapons in action right now that would be great.

Ok, can you make a list of the weapon pages that are missing an in-game shot?

Of the weapon pages I have done the following still need images:

LBX AutoCannon
ER Beam Lasers
Heavy Lasers
Pulse Lasers
X-Pulse Lasers

I expect this list will grow.  For instance, I am pretty sure PPC's don't have any images, nor would I expect MRM's, ATM's, SRM's, or SSRM's.

Ok, if you have an idea of all the weapon pages that will be needing one, that would be helpful - they could all be done in one session then.

Right now I really don't know, I honestly hadn't thought about it before.  I'll take a look after tomorrow.

Awesome effort man :)
Is it an idea to link related weapon sizes?
Ex.
link ac20 to uac20 and lbx20?
or LBL to ERLBL, LXPL, CHLL etc?

Also I will be online tonight (gmt +1) and tomorrow somewhere if you want to make the required screenshots :)
see pm

We had a photo session yesterday and should have most of the weapons covered (see attachment). Thanks to Ragor for the camera work / post-edits and to Aldi Nord for helping out.

Missing or didn't have nice shots: HGauss, Light Gauss, Arrows, X-Pulse.
Could use better shots: (C)(U)ACs.

Oh, thanks Cygma.  Let me take a look.

Warhammer, sorry I didn't get around to answering your message, been pretty busy earlier and it slipped my mind.


EDIT: Wow, these look great.  Not sure how many I can use but there are some very good ones in here.  Some may even be better than current pictures, which is a bonus.

It would be nice if the Mechs which equip the described weapon would be listed, so you can see where it is used. Please suggest how to format that:

1. Section with list (maybe additional text)
== Used by ==
* Mech1
* Mech2
* Mech3

2. List in footer (links only)
Mech1 * Mech2 * Mech3

3. per Weapon paragraph
The WeaponX is equipped on Mech1 and Mech2. Mech3 has the incredible power of two of this babys.

Edit:
I now used variant 1 and added a section "Usage" with the 0.4.9 vehicles to the finished articles mentioned above:
Currently created pages are:

I really like to see more people helping out with the wiki, but with the already low participation in it i don't think anyone will invest the time to update all those pages with the release of new versions.

We don't even have the much more important updates on all the asset info boxes and descriptions in yet from the dump i posted over in the other thread; not to mention the outdated pages for maps etc.
