Hey, it's Terra M Welch from the Klei forums, I was just wondering if you'd be able to update information on this wiki involving DST's insulation mechanic based on some more accurate information.
Currently I've been called out by a user on the forums being told my information is incorrect, when it is not so, I've tested the temperature and insulation mechanics quite extensively in DST and found out that my info on that thread is more accurate to how it works in DST then this wiki's info on it.
If you or any other big contributor to this wiki could update the info related to that, that would be nice.
Hello Terra, I did see your post on the insulation mechanic. You are completely correct regarding the lack of accurate DST info on this wiki, it's something we need to work on for sure. Looking at the Overheating/Freezing pages, I see that they are ridiculously outdated. And I have to admit, I'm struggling to figure out how to incorporate DST specific info. These mechanics are complicated and I'm not confident in doing it justice. But I am going to try, and hopefully other contributors who are more privy to this can help too.
Thank you for sharing this info, and helping to correct the wiki's mistakes. ^-^
Hey Terra, thanks for bringing this to our attention!
Have you considered creating a wiki account and helping us provide more accurate DST info since you're kind of the expert on the topic now? Wiki editing isn't hard and is actually quite fun. And we could always use more help, especially from someone who is able to take a look at the details and verify information.
I want proof that it exists in the code currently, so I can verify it exists myself. Is there a spawn code for it? Any keyword so one could search the files? If not, I don't trust it enough to allow on any page. (This includes any other image from the same source, like the cyber pig and house)
Hiya! I noticed you recently filled out a food infobox for Poison Dartfrog Legs. I tried to fill one out for Bean Bugs but the template only allowed me to put in the spawn codes and clicking "Add More Information" did nothing. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks.
Hello! You aren't doing anything wrong. This seems to be a Visual Editor thing. I honestly do not know how to make it let you fill out the whole template, as I exclusively use the source code editor. I just tried it out myself and I'm stumped as to why it won't let you add more fields! I'm sorry that I cannot help you with Visual Editor. I recommend in the future to:
go to any template's documentation page (like this one, for the Food Infobox)
copy and paste the code into the page you want to edit (using source editor)
fill in the info
I should also mention that you can also go to an existing page with the template you want to use and copy/paste from there. Just be sure to change everything. That's what I did for the Bean Bugs page: I just copy/pasted from the Poison Dartfrog Legs page and changed what needed to be changed! This is all in source code editor.
I hope this helps a little bit! And thanks for all your contributions!
you have done a lot of quality contributions to this wiki in the last months and are active here almost every day. You've also shown a major understanding of this wiki's structure and processes. Thank you very much for that!
If the other admins agree, I'd like to offer you a promotion to the Custodian or Rollback user group. You could use your new rights to fight vandalism more effectively, to mark edits as patrolled, or to protect, rename and delete pages and files.
I saw that you put that on the to-do list for photos, however, correct me if I am wrong, but I believe there is no in game spawn code or textures of them, so they don't exist other than the "Home Sea Home" update picture.
