Summary[edit | edit source]
This page will provide short articles on new updates to the NMS wiki that may prove useful to wiki editors and readers. These may include new infobox parameters, new reference pages, updates on page standards, etc. etc. If you have suggestions or comments, leave a note on the talk page.
Bosaquatica and Procavaquatica genus (19 June 2020)[edit | edit source]
Based on a survey by 11 members of the wiki community, the names Bosaquatica and Procavaquatica have been chosen as the terms used in the wiki to describe the aquatic versions of the Bos and Procavya genus families. Creatures in both of these areas are listed in-game as members of the Unknown genus - these new terms have been coined for ease of wiki reference. All pages referring to these two types of creatures now use Bosaquatica and Procavaquatica consistently. They should be used for all future documenation.
CARGO table updates (16 June 2020)[edit | edit source]
Parameters for Game_release, Galaxy, Region, Biome, and Civilized have been added to the CARGO table for Planets and Moons. The columns for temperatures and rad values were removed, although they can still be entered in the infobox.
Base and Creature infoboxes (10 June 2020)[edit | edit source]
A new parameter of moon has been added to the infoboxes for Bases and Creatures. Up to this point, the planet parmameter was used, which provided potentially misleading information. This parameter will be added to the Flora and Minerals infoboxes in the near future.
Auto-generated category for Planets (10 June 2020)[edit | edit source]
If the civilized parm is used in the Planet infobox, an automated category of Civspace name - Planets will now be created on the page. To create this category for your civ, click the red category link and pick the Civilized Space Subcategory option. Fill out the information and save.
CARGO table updates (10 June 2020)[edit | edit source]
The moon parm mentioned above has been added to the CARGO table for both pages. In addition, the discovered and discoverlinked parms have been added to the Planet and System infoboxes.
Minerals Research (4 June 2020)[edit | edit source]
A research project called Project Steinn is currently under way. Sponsored by the Grand Conjunction, this page is an attempt to record mineral names and locations in mass, in order to find repeated mineral names. Once located, they will be further studied to see if any other patterns can be found.
[edit | edit source]
A research project currently under way is an attempt to log the various sentences used in a creature's Discovery Menu notes, as well as the Additional Observations. The count currently stands at 300 different sentences, with more than 200 Additional Observations recorded. All are welcome to contribute to this list, which can be found at Creatures - Discovery Menu.
