We’ve made a few improvements to the wiki over the last week:
- Changed the home page layout to make it easier to find things
- Added a page for each hull (an image and stat table only for now)
- Added pages for each of the main structures that can be built on a planet (in need of expanding)
One of the next things we’ll be doing is making sure that all of the ship parts are also listed. There’s a lot of other things that need doing: updating outdated pages; adding, expanding or improving other pages. Speaking of which…
Your help needed!
This community wiki is for Beyond Dark players and we need your help to improve it. Your contributions are not only valued, but enable us to focus more time on developing new features and making the best game possible!
While members of the Beyond Dark development team participate in maintaining this wiki, it is a community wiki, and we encourage players to get involved however they can. Contributing could be a sentence or two clarifying how something in the game works, amending stats, fixing grammar on a page, uploading an image, a new page about strategies, a gameplay guide – it’s up to you 🙂
We also notice many new players asking the same questions in chat and forums. Adding or improving the wiki will help keep chat channels focused on gameplay and improvements.
We’d also love it if players would create some really compelling new player guides, with mini missions such as destroying a pirate fleet or colonizing a 2nd homeworld. We know early game is slow and we are working on that, but often new players don’t realize there is actually a lot to do which they are overlooking. We’d be happy to see multiple starter guides in the wiki e.g. “Tim’s Syntis Newbie guide”.
Overall, don’t be afraid to add new content. The biggest problem right now is lack of content!
