Have seen this template Template:AGT External Links on many of the AGT pages obviously, have always wondered why the links are spaced so far apart. Would it be possible to change the double line breaks to a single one? Anway, just a thought.

Also - this page NMS Hub has an outdated list of NMS Hubs. If you want to update it to include our current hubs, that would be great. Thanks!

Avatar for Celab99

yes thanks for reminding me, I meant to clean up the AGT External link spacing. I updated the links a couple of months ago after an AGT Senior Leadership Team decision on the public platforms we will support.

Regarding the hubs page, happy to do, what guideline shall we use for determining if a hub is still active? Beyond or later? Synthesis or later?

Avatar for Ddfairchild

any active hub should be on the Civilized space page, marked with the hub starburst. I'd say those would be the ones we want to use. Thanks!

on category pages such as <<Category:Vy'Kea Furniture Company - Bases>>, they don't need the group sub-category added to them. (i.e. "bases"). They are already under that category, and this makes them show up twice. Thanks!

Need you to change the location of the flag pic on CELAB Galactic Industries. Either do a thumb right, or a gallery. Thanks!

Avatar for Ddfairchild

Whoa, hold on with those category changes. We WANT the category to be Civilized Spaces (plurla). Just like Planets or Companies or Star systems.

That category shows the "family" they belong to.

Hey jumping over here...just wanted to check in about the CARGO possibilities. Do we already have the ability to create a table of all creatures discovered by a particular person (by either the discoveredlink or discovered parms)? My other question was whether we could have region instead of planet in the CARGOCreaturesCivGenus tables. Thank you sir!

Avatar for Celab99

Ok two new Cargo queries were created:

1. CARGOCreaturesDiscovered|name

2. CARGOCreaturesDiscoveredGenus|name|Genus


So in first query, just use this query to make a table of all fauna discovered by the "name" in either the Discovered or DiscoveredLink fields.

The second query is like the first, but add a second parameter to filter the results to a specific genus.

Avatar for Phaedrus2929

Great thanks! OK, one last idea: Could we have a minimal version of the CARGOCreaturesDiscovered...that would only show the creature Name, Genus, Region, and Galaxy? I like the one you created and want to use it, but it would be nice to also have a minimalist option version if that's possible.

Thanks to our esteemed admin who showed me the script for making a counter, you can try this...

"{{#cargo_query:tables=Creatures

|fields= COUNT(*) |where= Civilized = "Galactic Hub Project" }}"

If you want to count just all the creatures tagged in Galactic Hub Project for example. If you want to count only a specific type, then you could do this, using it to count the Agnelis as an example:

"{{#cargo_query:tables=Creatures

|fields= COUNT(*) |where= Civilized = "Galactic Hub Project" AND Genus="Agnelis" }}"

(remove the first and last quotes from the two examples)

If you need some more example help, look at the code in my page where I have used it to show some examples: CELAB Galactic Fauna Archive

Avatar for Phaedrus2929

This is all super helpful and useful...thanks again for your help!

Avatar for Ddfairchild

Thanks for adding the civilized parms to those pages. Here's a tip on those. Let's suppose there is a hard-coded category for the civ already on the page. Once the auto-generated civ is there (say, Civname-Planets), you can remove the hard-coded civ category.

Example: Feather from a Phoenix has this situation. Thanks!

Avatar for Celab99

Yea, I know :) I was doing hundreds of planet and systems page checks/cleanups today and I tried to remember to check the hard coded ones, but sometimes some slipped through <g>

Hello, I wanted to know if I can use your Y. Tamisahoneum species design for a digitally drawn field guide page on Discord's No Man's Sky server. It will be made purely for entertainment, the Y. Tamisahoneum will look marginally differently and the same will go for the background. I intend to use the information from the species wiki page, but it will be expanded upon.

That's how I'm putting this into words. If you allow me to use the design and the species information, then I will also show you the end result of my field guide page once it's done.

Avatar for Celab99

Please go ahead, I look forward to see your results.

FYI for next time. When creating a historical version of a page (such as Archipelago), create the historical page by copying the text from the current page and creating a brand new page with it. If you create the historical page by doing a rename, it carries all the previous change history with it. We really want to retain all the history for the "current" page, as that's what any "historians" will want to look at. Thanks!

Avatar for Ddfairchild

Just a quick note - before you manually change all the pages, let's talk about what changes you may want to make. Gamepedia can create bots that do amazing things (IMHO) that may make this a lot less work.

Avatar for Ddfairchild

OK, sorry about that. Fill me in though on why you need both the discovered and the discovered link fields. I've just made a modification to the CARGO table to store both of them. Just want to understand the purpose. Thanks!

Avatar for Celab99

The discovered link fields were not in cargo tables so we could not run cargo queries on that field. The discovered by field was, but was not consistently used (eg where an author used the discovered by field, or left blank). And then we have the civilized field.. In practice all three will result in different cargo query results.. so ideally having all three in the table will make it easier to produce some queries now. I recall in past you advised that we would not want to put both discovered fields in the tables, although I dont recall the specific issue.

Practically speaking, we want to have the ability for a discoverer, or a civilization to independently produce cargo reports based on the contents or combination of contents of these fields. Adding both discovered fields to the tables will allow us to modify a whole series of cargo queries to do either or queries and potentially catch records that are incompletely or inconsistently entered.

Hi again, similar topic, different tables... I want to do a mass clean up of data entered to improve its quality... the cargo tables for Planets and systems dont have the discovered and discoveredlink fields in them so it makes it hard to gauge the issues I need to look for, is it possible to have these in the planet and starsystem tables? Once I look at those, I may ask you about creating a BOT to do some clean up on those as I will expect that one to be an easier quality fix than fauna (FYI, I have completed a clean up of about 1400+ fauna records, their infobox datasets have been seriously improved, a lot of fields were added to the fauna template perhaps mid way thru visions so quite a few of the older records in NEXT and vision were missing a lot of fields, thats fixed now for those, I reckon we probably fixed nearly half of all the 3000+ fauna records in the database).

Avatar for Ddfairchild

I have added the two columns to Planets and Star Systems. It will take awhile for the tables to regenerate, but they are in the process. The Planets will be first, then once that finishes Star Systems.

Avatar for Celab99

thanks ultimately as our platform grows it's inevitable that we will need to do clean up subfilter tables using these.
