  • So, who deleted my weapons blog and why? How was it causing trouble? Do you have any idea how much work I put into that?

    • My guess is that it would be because weapons are intentionally not in the game, so writing in defiance of a feature is unnecessary. However, I am not ThunderStar321, the one who did delete your blog.

      Either way, here is the source code of your blog. Now, you can have your information back and be happy.
      ==How Are We Supposed to Defend Ourselves!?==
      Subnautica. We've watched it on YouTube and some of us have played it. The graphics are incredible, the diversity of life is amazing, the views are breathtaking, the story is engaging and the world is massive; the ability to explore the environment, salvage materials, gather supplies and build an underwater base is both practical and fun. But the one category I think is missing from the game altogether is weapons. You can sneak around all day long, but how are you supposed to react when stealth and eascape aren't an option?
      
      In the game, there seems to be no thought given to weapons of any significance. As the sole survivor from your crashed ship, you can't reasonably be expected to protect yourself in a given situation using just your brain and you can only swim so fast. I understand they wanted the game to be about survival, but even the most minimal survivalist would say that exploring an unfamiliar area on an alien planet where potentially dangerous creatures lurk without some means of self-defense that's capable of inflicting physical damage quickly is utter insanity. The knife is barely adequate for melee damage and the gravitational disruptors are only temporary fixes.
      
      If you were stranded all alone on an alien world, the first thing you would do after gathering the basic necessities of survival (food, water, shelter and medicine) is create a means of protection beyond the walls of your base. Your body and your vehicles can only take so much.
      
      Therefore, I've compiled a list of weapons that could be equipped to your person, your submersibles and your base.
      ==Player Weapons==
      ===Melee Weapons===
      These weapons would be used to defend against the smaller aggressive species.

  • Dear Thunder,

    I've been in a short edit war on the Sunbeam article.  The tension point is a piece of Trivia regarding the bug where the Sunbeam does not appear.  I have been told that bugs do not go on articles, but I have not seen anything in the Guidelines about it.  If this is a legitimate rule, it should be in the Guidelines, right?

                                                                                                              Sincerely,                                                                                                                                                                   JohnTAD

  • Can you give me a picture of your profile picture but the eyes are replaced with mouths if you can.

  • Hey Thunder, I was wondering if there was any way I coud get some background images from the wiki.  I just started my own wiki focused more on Roleplays and user created fanon, but I cannot find a background using Google that meets both the 2,000 pixel width requirement to avoid splitting and the 300 KB maximum size file.

  • On my blog comparing the Stillsuit and the Reinforced Divesuit I misspelled Stillsuit in the title.  Is there anyway to fix this?

  • Did I inadvertently start a small edit war?



    EDIT: Also, jeez, I've been putting a lot of stuff on your message board the past few days.  Hope you don't mind.

    • It's nothing, edit warring is somewhat common. And don't worry about putting things on my message wall. That's what it's there for.

  • why did you revert those edits? they are true since its in the context of "lava lakes" as in multiple of them so its a true edit. I get the feeling your just biased towards me because I have an opinion on the titan leviathan

    • Thank you, AnomalyDetected and MaverickAtom, for staying on-topic.

      Based on this edit as well, there is a general consensus within the bureaucrats that "is" is correct. On the one hand, "lava lakes" is a title, so it can be considered singular. On the other hand, it does refer to lakes of lava, so it can be considered plural. Personally, I would have it as "are," but we still should get some feedback from ThunderStar321.

    • I don't even remember why it got renamed. I think Lava Lakes/Lava Lake works out either way considering it still gets the point across. Are/is is fine, doesn't particularly matter.

  • I was just looking at the available badges and noticed that the second teir badge (5 edits) for Alien Technology articles (Carar Unleashed) still uses the old spelling of Kharaa.  Has it been left that way on purpose?
