Can you please make an image for new inedible category in DST like you did for new vegetables recently? Twigs, bone shards, goat horns and nightmare fuel belong to this category and all recipes that previously excluded twigs now exclude inedible stuff in general, not just twigs.
thanks for your hard work and awesome contributions!
The Crock Pot page has been protected against edits from unregistered or newly registered editors because it is highly frequented and has been vandalized many times. I have now temporarily changed the protection settings, so you can make your edits.
Please take care to not add any Portable Crock Pot exclusive dishes and bear in mind what content is exclusive to which game (coming from a vanilla single-player perspective). Thank you!
Hi MMueck! My name is Shrev, and I’m the Fandom Wiki Manager for Don't Starve game Wiki. I am here to help the community and be a liaison to full-time Fandom staff. If you ever have a question or issue relating to the wiki, editing, styling, infoboxes, templates, etc., please feel free to contact me on my message wall, or on Discord at Shrev64#0089.
the thing is that the games don't really have biomes, but rooms. Rooms are usually way more specific than what we would call a biome, for example the Grasslands biome includes a huge amount of rooms which differ slightly in content (more flowers, more moleworms, ...).
You can find all room descriptions in the files under "data/scripts/map/rooms/".
I guess, for the wiki it has become customary to group rooms together that are almost indistinguishable for the players. That's admittedly a bit inaccurate, but practical. :) And because turfs are a very good way to distinguish rooms, the biomes have been named after their respective turfs most of the time. For Hamlet, this worked quite well.
For the new DST biomes in particular, I thought going with "Rocky Beach" would be fine considering the turf is called "Rocky Beach Turf". For the other ones it was a bit more difficult so I have taken some liberties. There is even another room called "Baths" that has the same contents as Lunar Forest but has Hot Springs and Saladmanders additionally.
If you are unhappy with the names or have suggestions for changes, please let me know!
So TL;DR: To my knowledge, there are no official biome names in the files. The names in the wiki are community-chosen and usually inspired by the respective turf.
Thank you for the reply! Do we have a template to signify pages with fan-created names? I think that would be helpful in this instance. I'm fine with the name Rocky Beach btw, but I did have some issues with other names:
The page Biomes itself... I think generally page names should be singular.
Hey Bluegeist, sorry for the late reply! I have been thinking about this for a bit.
I completely understand your interest in choosing more accurate, original page names. The only alternative I can think of would be to use the room IDs, such as "BGForest" and "BGCaveNoisy". That wouldn't be very pretty in my opinion. However, we could certainly create a maintenance category for articles with community-chosen names.
Using plural for the Biomes page is in line with other overview pages such as Mobs, Items, Boats, etc. Would you be in favor of changing those too?
For the Painted and Cultivated biomes, I just found it very weird to have a single adjective as a page name (although we already have that for Sacred, as I just noticed). Maybe that's just because I'm not a native English speaker. What would you think of something similar to Painted Terrain / Desert / ... and Cultivated Terrain / Lands / ...?
Stalagmite Biomes should definitely be replaced, but it needs to be distinguishable from the Stalagmite objects.
No, I agree, the chosen names are more aesthetically pleasing. I just would like something to tell readers that the name is not canon, so as to avoid confusion (like I was experiencing, trying to find them in the code).
Oh, I did not notice that the plural thing is a naming convention. I would be in favor of changing them all to singular then, but not without other's input (like yours), I'm partial to keeping titles singular but I don't wanna impose y'know
I'm fine with single adjective titles, I think it sounds cool.
I agree with changing Stalagmite Biomes name, but I don't know what to replace it with yet..
1. There are no specific rules for which quote to choose. Personally, I focus on creating as much variety as possible (for example, not choosing the same character twice for related features or if there are multiple quotes templates on a page), on selecting the most informative quotes, or on special individual connections between characters and features (for example character-specific items, Wortox -> Krampus, etc.). This should probably be clarified in the Manual of Style.
2. Another good question, that needs clarifying in the Manual. I'd prefer avoiding the differences whenever possible, and fall back to US English if not possible.
An addendum as I've just patrolled your recent edits: We generally prefer creating links in this style [[Backpack]]s instead of [[Backpack|Backpacks]]. This makes the text shorter and more easily readable in the editor, while the syntax allows for the added letters to be combined in the link so there are no noticeable differences in the article.
Unfortunately, we can't actually do that. We cannot control what the visual editor outputs in source code, as that editor along with its UI is exclusive to Fandom (the service used to host this wiki) and can only be altered by its staff.
I agree the visual editor is intuitive and easy to use, especially for newer contributors, but it has some bugs and there are a few problems when you get into more advanced editing and formatting. I highly recommend getting the hang of using the source editor at some point, it actually becomes easier to just write a template's code directly instead of filling parameters in the visual editor.
