Question concerning the use of gamepedia alien species information for a fan field guide. (21 March 2020)[edit source]

I don't have means to run NMS or acquaire the game anytime soon, but, still I became interested with alien species entries other's have published. Having been practiced xenobiology worldbuilding before I decided to utilize the published content on Discord to make a fanart of some of the screenshots (which means that the poses and many portrayed features may come out different) as well as add headcanons on existing information. Before doing any of that, I've been meaning to try to contact respective publishers of their alien articles but I want to talk about it in the admin noticeboard first. I want to find out if contacting NMS players here on the gamepedia is easy or do I have to take additional steps to acquaire rights to non-finansially utilize alien design (i'm not redrawing screenshot step by step) as well as use information about it to create a more elaborate description. The publisher will be credited for that, and, about that, I want to also know how exactly to show that you've given publisher credit - do I need to show their username or use gamepedia-based reference codes or put in additional details?

Also after writing this, I will try to contact the publisher whose alien article I've been meaning to use in an alien field guide. The draft of one alien article is in an half-made state on my device since I had to do it to save up some ideas to add to the field guide. I think of not making it further until I am to receive permission or how would they want the field guide entry to be made (since, having the intellectually property, they have the right to make decision how it's derivatives are to be made, I think).

Short answer: Yes, it's ok to use the graphics
Long answer: Yes, it's ok to pull information from the wiki that has been posted there. However, this is acceptable ONLY if there is no monetary profit gained on your end by doing so. In other words, you can't pull someone's post, make a painting of it, and then sell it. Personal use though? You're good to go. Of course it would be proper-and-polite to grant specific credits the those who posted the pics that you use, as well credit as to the NMS wiki in general. As far as contacting the editors, the best way to do that would be to use your editor account in the wiki and post a message on the person's profile asking if it's ok with them to use their picture.

Understood, thank you! Xanthoradish (talk) 14:35, 29 March 2020 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Cooking Products (Recipes) (8 September 2019)[edit source]

Is there a template available yet for the Nutrient Processor Recipes? I only see a few PoC's (Proof of Concepts) with JSON in the Source such as on Smoked Meat and wondering what direction we are going? What is really needed is a graph view of the hierarchical relationships of the ingredients and products ThadG (talk) 23:13, 8 September 2019 (UTC)

Check the Synthetic Honey page for an example. I think that's what you're looking for? Ddfairchild (talk) 03:22, 9 September 2019 (UTC)

COMPLETE - New Higher Excavated bones Need Help editing (17 December 2018)[edit source]

As the titles says, I need help to update the page of excavated bones as I got one that is worth more. Link to the picture here: SJLgamers

You should be able to use the "Upload Files" link on the left under Tools. Have you tried that function yet? If not, we can discuss further - thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 18:36, 17 December 2018 (UTC)
Alright, did that, only problem now is that the units are bugged. Tried to fix it, but every time I fix it it bugs again. If you could fix that, then I'm all done! SJLgamers (talk) 15:23, 18 December 2018 (UTC)
Please note the format is used on the page, so everything must remain in the same row. When you manually put the sale value into a new row, it disappears, but using the <br> tag (inserts a single line break), it shows up in the next row under the artifact name.

COMPLETE - Can't find my base (8 September 2018)[edit source]

I can't get back to my base since week one of the community event where you find buried technology. Once you go through the portal you can't search at the space station as its offline due to the portal . I went back through the portal & it wasn't there . Any advice would be appreciated . Thanks . Sot (talk) 21:36, 8 September 2018 (UTC)

This appears to be a bug issue in NMS. You might want to report it using the bug report system that HelloGames provides. (this wiki is independent of HelloGames, so we can't fix it for you <g>) Ddfairchild (talk) 16:54, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Oxygen page change (9 September 2018)[edit source]

I would like to made an addition to Oxygen but Im afraid I will disrupt any existing formatting. --Condensed Carbon 1:10 --Kelp Sac 1:10 --Any of the following: Starbulb/Frost Crystal/Fungal Mould/Cactus Flesh/Gamma Weed/Solanium 1:10 Result is 250 Oxygen Time is ?? calculation is bugged --ownages (talk) 04:30, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

Are you indicating that combining 10 Carbon + 10 Kelp Sac + 10 of any of those other six items will refine to 250 Oxygen? Ddfairchild (talk) 05:45, 9 September 2018 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Re-visiting Planet Templates (24 June 2018)[edit source]

I'm having trouble understanding how to use the Planet Template. Can I be directed to the instructions? I can see that a Journals page has been added, so that's good. I just remember, that I did manage to upload some planet data once before but that was back in 2016. Thanks. --BirdBrain67 (talk) 10:52, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

I added instructions on how to do this on your user page Ddfairchild (talk) 17:48, 24 June 2018 (UTC)

Integrating Modding Wiki Info (8 April 2018)[edit source]

I've been discussing it/trying to discuss it with the modding community (insofar as is possible with varying activity), and I was wondering if there's a certain sort of etiquette and/or preferred method of carrying over credits for original authors that should be considered in moving information over. Any advice is appreciated, thanks! --Gmr Leon (talk) 06:06, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Creating a Bugs Page (8 April 2018)[edit source]

Considering that Hello Games doesn't have a transparent bugtracker as some other games have, might it not be useful to create a Bugs page that compiles known issues & bugs, while also pointing to where & how to report them directly to Hello Games? I think I've seen some Known Issues on some pages, which could still be kept, but having a complete list could prove immensely useful. --Gmr Leon (talk) 06:06, 8 April 2018 (UTC)

I have created a page called Bug reports that with any luck will be what you're looking for. Thanks! Ddfairchild (talk) 23:40, 19 April 2018 (UTC)

COMPLETE - Request for help (11 August 2016)[edit source]

Hi I have been reading things on this site for a while and noticed the Journals page and am interested in writing one of my own. I have never done anything like this and am not sure if I can just go and do it or if I need permission. Based on what other people have done I am going to assume it is ok to just write the journal and if I don't hear back I'll write one later but if there is something I should to first please tell me. Thanks. Please write back. --Camster1922 (talk) 20:52, 11 August 2016 (UTC)

Yes, the journals are open to anyone to use. Let me know if you have any problems with it or any additional questions. --Alianin T •  C 23:12, 11 August 2016 (UTC)
Thank you also am I able to make pages on planets I discover? Camster1922 (talk) 01:27, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
You sure are! See Planet Upload Template for a template to use. --Alianin T •  C 15:42, 12 August 2016 (UTC)
