Star Trek Online Wiki


Hey. Just to explain about the Vesper edit the other day, as I saw your comment in the summary. When I made an earlier edit to that page my browser showed me that the Vesper picture had moved down to the Constitution Refit part. I tried to fix it and ended up making things worse. I was going to come back to it when I woke but you kindly corrected it by then. Just wanted you to know I wasn't being a vandal or a troll or anything. Best regards.

Hi, I wasn't trying to imply you were being a troll/vandal. I wasn't sure if for some reason it looked better on your browser that way or there was something I was missing =P. Asanad (talk) 18:50, 28 September 2013 (UTC)

Dilithium Store[]

Hi. Thanks for helping with the Dilithium Store, but can you hold off a little, until I get the basics down? I've been thinking about this over a week, since I got stuck on Mayerteac (Ground Weapons Dilithium Vendor) and realised I need to fix the store first. I only started on it yesterday. I generally tend to give a page time to breathe before I jump in and update someones work. I'm not done yet, I only went for a few hours sleep. I'm well aware of the parser limitation, having ran into it on Mayerteac's page, and really dont think it needs mentioning on the page's permanenet history. Also I was working on getting the existing pages done, and verifying items and prices, and was about to get to the icons. I disagree that those are the "correct" icons as your comment suggests. I was planning to fix not only those, but also the incorrect icons on the actual item pages (which would have fixed the d-store icons without editing the dstore pages at all). --Tahno (talk) 04:03, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

How do you plan on 'fixing' the icons on the actual item pages? Asanad (talk) 06:31, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
I was simply going to create redirects for the advanced icons and update the actual item pages to refer to the icon of the same name as the item/article. The {{item}} template, among others, expects that there is an icon of the same name as the item. Sure, these all use the same 'base' common image with a rarity overlay added, but to me pointing to a different icon (different to the item name) in the item article, or overriding the template call, is a work-around to the problem of not having an icon by the expected name. Usually this isn't an issue because different items have their own unique icons, varying only in their MK value, which the templates ignore, so we have one page per item. These however use words like 'advanced' or 'elite' making the item name unique at different levels, and each level has a page. I think people may have been lazy and just gone "that works" without looking at the bigger picture. It might look right, but I don't think it's necessarily correct or consistent. --Tahno (talk) 07:40, 7 October 2013 (UTC)
That would be more consistent matching the pagename with the icon. I was thinking along the same lines with different subpage for the weapon types in the Dilithium store. Other pages may need to be done that way to keep the look consistent throughout the store. Asanad (talk) 17:32, 7 October 2013 (UTC)

Cruiser Commands[]

Good work on the template - I might have to steal the idea for Romulan singularity abilities (the make a mess of the info box too), if I get around to it. :). Glad to see you didnt miss the subtle differences between cruiser classes too. Tahno (talk) 11:48, 11 November 2013 (UTC)

Yeah that was next on the list at some point. Asanad (talk) 17:45, 12 November 2013 (UTC)

Quad Cannons[]

You probably know the answer to this... Is there some math somewhere to work out base damage?

I have a base damage table for Quad Cannons here but other than creating and leveling a new character Im not sure how to fill in the missing numbers. I started this for the Plasma Quads, which are only available to Rommie players from lvl 30 (with the Ar'Kala ship). Feel free to add it to the base table template subpages if it's useful. (cut n paste - page prolly has a bunch of unwanted history). Tahno (talk) 19:11, 14 November 2013 (UTC)

Sadly I don't know any way besides leveling with it. I tried to find something for the shuttle weapons you can level with but no luck there either. The table should definitely be added to be consistent with other weapons and it will make the weapon page itself consistent with the others. I'll see what I can find and update the table and add it to the template probably later tonight. Asanad (talk) 19:26, 14 November 2013 (UTC)
No rush. I do have a toon who can probably get the numbers for lvl 45, I figure every 5 levels is enough (for now anway), it was more the numbers below that. Hopefully other users might fill it in. If I have any Romulans leveling I'll try remember to note the numbers down - thats kinda why I left it in my sandbox. I dont have phaser or disruptor quads to look at on other factions.
