  • no? the "recharging station" command doesn't work for you? or is it in the wrong place? Or is it something else I haven't done? Just wondering....

    EDIT: lemme recheck things first in case I did something wrong

    • This was actually just a one-off as I wasn't able to find anywhere more appropriate to put one tiny commmand which I couldn't find anywhere else. :P I don't usually do editing at all, especially if I can understand it, since I feel the authors may have their own intentions of what they want the information to represent, but thanks for the encouragement! Apparently I don't understand wikis well enough ^_^"  Cheers!! :D

    • Well, that page alone is going to be gradually expanded, as dozens (if not hundreds) of both commands AND object codes could be added, but there's no sense in putting everyting in there, so will have to make a huge selection eventually.

      You may be right about the intentions, but what matters most is the content - the facts, the hard data. How we put it into words is important, but not the most, and the presentation is on an even lower level. I've bumped onto some glaring errors  here about half a year ago when I was just playing, and I hardly knew anything about Wiki editing. Right now I'm still a beginner, but at least I have a bit more knowledge. So if you feel you want to edit something - that's fine, try your hand at it, and if you feel like not doing it, that's ok too.

      Good day to you, cheers! : )

  • I started to thank you for all the stuff you have done with the wiki, but really, thank you for giving a fuck at all, its people like you who made the call to whatever insurance company so that we no longer had to steal the game to play it (frankly), and now System Shock is in the news feeds and it isnt just some retrospective or filler-article because there was no relevant news

    whatever effort you could use responding to me, go make something on the wiki more awesomer, it will be appreciated by many many more people as the future unfolds

    • Thank you for your kind words. I feel the vast majority of the work was/is/will be done by NightDive Studios and OtherSide Entertainment, and some really powerful fan sites like TTLG.com or systemshock.org. However, when it comes to the Wiki I see it that way that we try to do our best. And it's all a collective work of our team.



      Speaking of our team, look for Katrina (Kelis98). She is doing an outstanding job all the time, and for years too. I'm really thankful for her whole involvement, for all the trust she gave me (perhaps she wasn't worrng ; ) and for everything else.

      There are also some people who are inactive, but did an outstanding job, too.

      Here I think mostly of Hathomirr. Without his help, I'm not sure how we would fare technically (I'm thinking of infoboxes, templates and such). These innards are very important, even if they're not that obvious.

      And naturally, many other people that contributed to various degree.



      You're more than welcome to try your hand at it more if you want. I've seen your edit and it looked very promising. I only corrected some minor details, but don't worry, it's just typical me.

      Also, I'd really like to invite you to our Discord server. You can join it on basically from any Wiki page (there's a widget), or by using this invite: https://discord.gg/CbH5pfG

      Though it's pretty fresh (it was created some time ago, but only recently it was pinned to the Wiki pages and we started doing something with it), it's slowly growing : ) You're more than welcome to join and talk anything Shock-related things - or anything else if you'd like to : ) Hop in!



      PS. And don't worry... hundreds of edits are slowly coming this way. All a matter of time and finding enough strength. While it's a neverending story and some pain in the ass sometimes, it's also a pleasure to look at it from some perspective (and sometimes even without it), basically without the years-long love for the Shock it wouldn't be possible, so yes, it will be continued! : ) Thank you again for your heartwarming words.

  • I've noticed that other wikis have custom badges, if that's something that you think we should do, let me know.

    Also, if there are ever any features or templates on other wikis that you think should be here as well, let me know. There are some good ideas out there.

  • I’ve noticed that the terms hacker and AI (and possibly others as well) appear instead of Admin and Bureaucrat on user pages (though they still appear that way on the user page). I was wondering if this was something you did? If so that’s fine, I’m just curious.

    • Yup, that was mine. Actually want to play around with the "tags" a bit, but not right now. Probably in a more advanced way, better looking and more custom.

      Anyhow, a quick question - would you mind if I changed the roles a little? What I mean by that is that you currently have the "bureaucrat, sysop, chatmoderator, content-moderator, rollback and threadmoderator" roles on https://shodan.fandom.com/wiki/Special:ListUsers?useskin=oasis page ; would you mind if I reduce them to simply "bureaucrat and sysop" or you would prefer to keep them all? From the practical point of view nothing changes, since all the "moderators" and rollback rights are already in the admin/sysop role. Also, funny enough, threadmoderator is probably the least important role : D, since it still applies to the forums... and as we've talked yesterday, they can't be enabled in any way.

    • Hmm, I don't see why not, I also don't see any harm in keeping them. If I had to choose, I might keep them, but again I don't see too much harm in removing them. Either one is fine, I suppose.

        Loading editor
    • Allright then. Until I get my ass around to making custom roles (which will make this whole tag thing much more flexible), I'll modify those for now. When the custom roles will be made and polished, I can restore those exactly how they are now. Thank you!

  • I’ve noticed occasionally you edit your profile and almost always it’s to add or remove a < br > (had to add spaces or it doesn’t show up). I’m just curious why? I’ve always assumed you’re just trying to get it right but idk.

    • Oh, it's pretty simple actually : D There are times that I don't have time/energy/possibilities for serious editing, and I want to keep the streak going. By 'streak' I mean the 'Wiki Love track' achievement streak, for which the total is 365 days, so as of now I'm missing 2 achievements, 200 and 365 (currently on 149/200, so quite a ways to go yet : P). Edits that don't appear in (Main) are actually counted in, even if they do not count into the "edits on articles" counter (and rightfully so), so can just slightly edit my own page. So yeah, just one of my goals to reach, actually for me the achievements were one of the magnets when I started editing. I could do it just like Plojikuh did it - one (even a tiny) edit on a page daily (and it's obvious it was his 'ultimate' goal, since he actually disappeared after receiving the last achievement and never made another, even single edit... a bit sad if you ask me : p), but I prefer not to do edits 'artificial' style, but focus on the job at hand and just go with the flow. So sometimes hundreds and sometimes nothing (ok, one) : P

      Speaking of which, right now I'm testing spawns and drops in SS1, and damn... it's more complicated than I originally thought. For example, there is a certain block on items drops (from defeated enemies) on Level 1 until ... SOMETHING ... still don't know what... is done. I'm actually not sure what is this something as of now, but it seems there is some certain criterium that actually unlocks "normal" item drops on some types of enemies. Strange to say the least. Naturally, can't guess the probability of each item, but it's obvious the drop system is similar to the one from SS2 in many ways. Will have to try the editor sooner or later...

    • Oh, it's just a number off the top of my head. It's only a matter if they would be presented good enough for the viewer. If it's a huge number they would need to be organized into some sections, probably not just edited into videos. And even with a lesser number, organization is still a sensible idea.

    • Alright, I don't know how we could organize them outside of upload order and page listings, but alright.

  • Hey, um... sorry for writing that, but as you can see I've downloaded some files about SHODAN. Accidentally I made error, a duplicate. L-l-l-l-look at this file, man. Now look at this one. Could you do some fixes with that.

    By the way - sorry for t-t-t-that trouble.

    • I mean any translations would be good, I wouldn't be able to do much on that front since the most I know of other languages is a few words and phrases. I could use an online translator, but that may not be accurate.

      Anyway, we could keep both if you want to have one with and without the waternark, if not we can keep either one it doesn't matter to me. I suppose if we had to choose one, we could always go with the one without the watermark, but again either one is fine.

        Loading editor
    • Thank you!

      Right now I'm not sure if we need both. I'll think about it and perhaps do some searching in free time, ok? I suppose both wouldn't hurt, tho it's always good to optimize. Depends on whether we actually need one or more.

      As for the translation - don't worry about it, if I'd actually decide to get into this I would want to do this in a good style, same as in English. But the chances are slim I'll get to it - at all... I realize how big it is, and as you can see, since I treat it really seriously, there could be no half-measures. So, being realistic is good : P English is the absolute priority since we have a much bigger fanbase, and.. it's actually easier to edit in many regards, funny enough. So yeah, there's a lot of material to edit and for quite a long time I reckon. Adding new assets is the next priority (or in parallel if time permits), because even if SS1 and SS2 are not so dynamic as SSR/SS3 (tho still they receive new patches!), there is a LOT of good, new, fresh ideas to at least try out. So yeah, for now the translation is on the shelf, but perhaps in future I'll see it in a more positive light.

  • Hey. I'm not sure if you're into randomizers (or modding) or not, but I found out that there is a System Shock 2 Randomizer. I'm not sure what it does, but I thought that it was worth sharing.

    • Hey hey. While I don't really use mods (let's say I keep it vanilla most of the time), I am a fan of people that are doing good job (no matter what area) and their products (even if I don't use them), and it is the case with quite a few of SS2 mods : ) SHTUP is probably the best example (as is the case with all the higher quality textures in eg plants, weapons/weapon models) ; some mods are well-known, but I'm not a fan of them (I don't like Rebirth for a good example), and some are just interesting, but not that good.

      Also, there are some outstanding things like SS Infinite, but I feel like it's more than a simple mod.

      I've heard about the Randomizer from some people who couldn't find a specific non-summonable key on Recreation : D So it's interesting, but sometimes makes life complicated.

      All in all, I reckon we could add some of the best mods to the Wiki. The quality is sometimes in the eye of the beholder though, so it could be tough to judge what belongs. Alas, my knowledge in this case is quite basic, but I reckon we could do a brainstorm sometime : )
