So in the recent Blog the Devs had a list of High Value Action items. Now I imagine I cant be the only one thinking “That looks like a script for a Tutorial” but that’s another threads task. But at the end it said
“Use the Wiki & find it useful”
Now as Joe mentioned a while back here there is a plan to integrate the wiki into the game I presume with in game links that lead outbound to the relevant Wiki pages much like the discord link on the chat box leads you to that.
Thats fair enough but the problem with that I think is that anything that breaks the immersion of the game is to be avoided we don’t want new players to the game being asked to leave the game or run some kind of windowed version so they can read the info of a website while attempting to play the game!
So can we turn the situation on its head and embed relevant Wiki pages within a sub screen of the game? Make the Wiki serve in place of the Help files in the game maybe?
To make this work I did see a discussion thread here on the subject so It may well be possible though I’d appreciate if somebody with more recent web design skills than mine to double check first. I can think of at least three of the regulars here that could prolly scan that and give a thumbs up or down in a few minutes.
Also if that’s becomes feasible a skin on the Wiki which has been mentioned before would be a darn good idea to keep the feel of it all being in the games direct process. If we had some kind of redirect/picture-in-picture with this then it could be easier to monitor whose done what (so awards can be handed out & assigned to the correct accounts) , especially if the only access to the wiki was via the client it would overnight slash the spam sign ups and other such spammy things that can cluster around a Wiki?
