Hi, welcome to S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the Heckler & Koch G36 page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Uberfuzzy (Talk) 00:04, 5 July 2009

Weapon names Edit

I will keep doing it, since I've contributed to this wiki to a far greater degree, overhauling a great deal of articles and supplying a lot of images. Apart from this, the weapons in the game are supposed to be their real-life counterparts and were, before GSC, for some reason, decided to change them to fictional. Look at the textures - they all bear real-life names. 15px-Scribe.jpg Tagaziel (call!) 19:47, September 2, 2009 (UTC)

Yeah, they were modelled and textured after real-life guns (by the way, check model of Ak-74 in-game, it is mirrored), but are named and depicted differently in-game. As I wrote before, it cannot be considered canon. In my opinion they have made decision to name weapons differently mainly due to the copyright obstructions. It is common sight among game developers. Octurion 21:01, September 2, 2009 (UTC)
Uh no, they aren't modelled differently. The models are indentical to their real-world counterparrts (except mirrored), the game files are named like real life guns, even the textures have real-world names. Occam's Razor. Also, why do you keep removing infoboxes from articles? 11px-Naglowaa_se.gif Tagaziel (call!) 08:34, October 18, 2009 (UTC)
Infoboxes needed to be revamped. Three stalker games has been released so far and each game contains at least one different info for each entry. I'll create new infoboxes later with separate subsection for each appearance. Octurion 05:46, October 25, 2009 (UTC)

FN-2000 article Edit

There already is an article on the FN F2000. http://stalker.wikia.com/wiki/FT_200M

Two X-18 articles? Edit

Why are there 2 X-18 articles one who has pics whilst the other without but has information that the other don't have. Why?

K then Edit

What ever you say then but I always do try to find a real world image that closely resembles the actual weapon in the game. SHIELD unit 08:36, January 2, 2010 (UTC)

Interesting stuff for this wiki Edit

Is there any way to contact with you, like e-mail or steam account maybe? I have the stuff from 2003 about old stalker's plot, concepts, scripts, quests - everything. You can add it at this wiki. ШЛЫК 22:33, January 22, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. Click on "E-Mail this user" link in the right menu. Octurion 13:57, January 24, 2010 (UTC)

Edit

Does that mean...um...just doing this? Nordom 10:57, February 16, 2010 (UTC)

Yep. Octurion 00:46, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Hi, on the Wish Granter wiki, how did you remove that quotation under the actual quote? I couldn't figure it out! Nordom 23:47, February 17, 2010 (UTC)

Always stick with standard formatting. White spaces are only causing troubles.

Congrats on 3000 edits! Edit

Edit

nice computer bro what is that lowest textures daaaaayum. seriously putsome actual quality pictures up of people or some admin will remove them. p.s.: upgrade your 8200

  • A.I was the one put them up because I have a jury rigged calculator for a PC that can't load jack. They're really just placeholders until some guy can find a better one.
  • B.There hasn't been an admin here for months
  • C.Anyway most of the unique characters in CS and SoC don't have their own textures so it's really redundant unless it's those with their own.


SHIELD unit 02:19, March 25, 2010 (UTC)

Hey man Edit

Don't you think that we should appeal for another moderator around here?.....One that's more active since MikaelGrizzly isn't that active...like....you, me or Boredgunner...or someone else in mind. You know, to managed the deletion stuff, contain vandals and other wiki related stuff? From what I know all you gotta do is ask Uberfuzzy, one of them wikia staff members. SHIELD unit 13:08, March 31, 2010 (UTC)

Sure. We'll need one or two active admins. I have submitted an adoption request. Octurion 16:51, April 2, 2010 (UTC)
Great, hope it comes through soon SHIELD unit 12:05, April 8, 2010 (UTC)

Thanks from Grester Edit

Thanks by improving my article of "Dangerous Cave" ive put "[mutant]" cuz i didnt knew his name and i was hoping someone would knew and so then insert the correct one. So thanks again.


I may do more article about call of prypiat since is a new game and not much info is corrently about it so feel free to later improve my articles ;)

License Edit

hi , i noted that you changed the license on each posted photo, this is not needed, its free of license. Dabur 18:47, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Hi. I'd say it isn't free of license, however I don't know that for sure. Take a look here. Octurion 21:09, June 22, 2010 (UTC)
hmmm , courtesy of gsc then ? still no respons on the email that i sent asking for it , ....

bloodsuckers in the cordon Edit

in shadow of chernobyl, are there really any bloodsuckers in the cordon, if so where ?


hi , i have never ever seen one in an unmodded game ( vannilla ) with either no patch or 1.0004 - 05 or 06

if you see one take a screenshot cause its a first. the other day i tried it with several people in old going on games and on new games

each on an other level and nothing happend ! have you ever seen one ? Dabur 00:31, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Changes Edit

How do you like the new look? I took the liberty of switching the wiki to the new format, since we needed an unique look to identify it. Can I ask you to help convert the templates, so that the headlines match the colour of the headers (where the "Edit this page" buttons are located)? Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 21:05, June 22, 2010 (UTC)

Very nice. I didn't know that there's default 'dark' skin. I'll do that. Octurion 17:37, July 1, 2010 (UTC)


hi ,


the black lines on the bottom reffering to the game versions are next to impossible to read and the weapon info pic on the top right looks ugly , ...


have a nice day

way to go octurion ! Edit

hi ,

WoW , you have been occupied , nice :D . need help ? pics ?

have a nice evening Dabur 18:47, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Your nifty Armor Infobox has errors Edit

Hey, so your Armor Infobox has a slight issue: for SoC and CoP it reports the Rupture protection value as the Impact protection value. I would have just fixed it myself but it's on your userpage, so.... -- Yukichigai 21:27, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Done. Octurion 02:38, July 3, 2010 (UTC)
Oh hey, and while I'm here may I suggest adding the SoC damage icons to the SoC section of the template? (Check List of armors in Shadow of Chernobyl for their names) And actually... I think with that error fixed it's really ready to move out of the userspace into an actual template. I mean, people are ALREADY using it as a template, so why not? -- Yukichigai 03:26, July 3, 2010 (UTC)

Stashes Edit

Are a template and individual articles for each stash necessary? A list would be more exhaustive and useful. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 20:02, July 11, 2010 (UTC)

hi ,

i am at this moment making a full list of all stashes , with screenhots and info , its a nice task that keeps you ' occupied ' , nearing the end of soc list .

after that its the other games stash list , we can get both , a short list and a full details list , ...

have a nice day Dabur 06:31, July 12, 2010 (UTC)

Stone Flower Edit

Heya, I was adding the CoP artifact descriptions when i noticed that the Stone Flower page already has a decription similar to the canon one from the game. Did you lift it from the game and should it be added as an alternate translation, or were you just paraphrasing?

Also, you're doing an awesome job on the wiki!

SHOC biographies Edit

Shouldn't we be including them in the article body? From what I recall, they aren't cut per se, as they are simply inaccessible. The contact tab in the PDA even features a space for the biography to be displayed. Furthermore, if I recall correctly, the facts in the biography blurbs are confirmed for most of the characters, so there's no reason (at least for me) to not include them as fact. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 11:16, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
By the way, I found something that supports my position - in the SHOC manual there is a line that says that when stalker names on the ranking list are clicked, short biographical notes are supposed to be displayed alongside their avatar, rank and faction. In short, the biographies should be accessible in the game, but for one reason or another, they aren't (probably technical issues). Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 12:49, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Also, in the configs/gameplay/character_desc_*.xml files, every character has a line referring to an entry in the bio files, while in the Contacts tab in the PDA is an empty field where the bio and other data should've been displayed. For these reasons, I believe that they weren't cut from the final release - they are simply not accessible in the game due to technical difficulties. Furthermore, they don't contradict the characters themselves and are confirmed in-game for the most part. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 17:36, September 23, 2010 (UTC)
I second this, It's meant to be in, and for the life of me, I can't figure why not. I'd love to find a way to re-add the bios into the game. I think Priboi story did it, I'll go check it out. Glory to the Holy Crystal - AstralShapeShifter 22:29, September 23, 2010 (UTC)

"Places" Edit

Shouldn't we simply make a "<Location> locations" category? E.g. Category:Zaton locations, Category:Garbage locations in Clear Sky etc.? I believe that'd be more intuitive. Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 12:50, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

Perhaps the latter will be more sufficient. Octurion 12:54, September 26, 2010 (UTC)

H-E-L-P Edit

hi, I just got clear sky. and when I try to play it...... it's like a freaking stop animation. also, it takes about 20 miniuts to load a save file. can someone help? call of pripyat and shadow of chernobyl work just fine. Loyal-to-duty 01:36, September 27, 2010 (UTC)

New infobox capability Edit

Perfect. By the way, we need to revamp navigation, since the idiots at Wikia will force the Oasis skin on us come November. Any ideas? Personal_Sig_Image.gif Tagaziel (call!) 10:13, October 2, 2010 (UTC)

sorry i think i put it in the rong place im just new

Well, i like stalker series a lot ...but 1 think is funny when i loot or just walkin and searchin 4 sumtin mutants attack me....but when i hunt em they run and i have to chase em...anojing.

can you purge my erroneous image upload? Edit

hi, a couple days back I mistakenly uploaded a mugshot of myself to the file archive, thinking I was adding a personal avatar for my profile. not that I don't look gorgeously handsome and all, but could you please delete it? my ego just isn't so enormous that I want to inflict myself on people fullsize in the file library.... :)

Faction infobox Edit

first of all hi and thx for the automatic welcome msg hehe :P

the thing i'd like to ask for is to add to faction infobox a parameter |neutral =. we already have realted, allies and enemies but sometimes it is just not enough. i am a little bit surprised that it is not there already. throughout the series, attitude towards one another is clearly 3 staged: ally, neutral and enemy.

one more thing, can Prospective Business page be removed? it is redundant as Tempting Business is made. it seems that since the creation there not much was expanded. for some reason also the mission itself was incorrectly named. if told how to find, i'll find all the Prospective Business hyperlinks and replace them. pretty please :) and take care

Tyrael pl 20:30, October 10, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. The additional parameter for the template should be working now, see Bandits page. I have redirected the mission page and kept the original name intact just in case someone tries to look up the page by that name. Octurion 17:12, October 11, 2011 (UTC)
Yeap, it sure is working, thank you. i will try to make thing more detailed when i have the time. btw, i think i saw it just after you implemented it; long time before you posted ;]. Also thanks for this redirection - its the best solution :D

take care! ill post here, on your talk page if something comes up. Tyrael pl 01:04, October 12, 2011 (UTC)

Deleting, renaming image files?Edit

hi again :) since achievement icons were diving me nuts i uploaded and relinked nearly each and every icon as optimized, properly named, native resolution png file. those i did not upload as a new file i updated. they are smaller at least, with the best possible quality as thay come from game texture files. ofc linked em in their proper places.

what do you think?

Tyrael pl 23:31, October 15, 2011 (UTC)

Chat Edit

Hey man, I wanted to ask you some questions about the chat like is it only open certain times anf how many join the chat on average. ThanksWolfHound 18:03, December 4, 2011 (UTC)

maybe i can help with those.
chat is on 24/7 as it is a part of wikia.
since i asked about it just recently it is hard to give statistics but as we see not much of a crowd.
peace, Tyrael pl 13:02, December 6, 2011 (UTC)
Oh cool thanks man that clears some stuff up.WolfHound 03:22, December 7, 2011 (UTC)


SpamEdit

Is this someones playground??? Are the drugs cheap these days??? If not done already, would you mind deleting Fettabsaugen??? Thanks in advance... The Real Guide 02:18, March 6, 2012 (UTC)

How can i see waht i edited? I really cant remember.


What exactly i edited??

Just saying Hi Edit

Hello there!! are you still active????

Josesu909 (talk) 05:19, May 27, 2013 (UTC)

Edit

Hi Octurion,

I see that the "Things of the dead stalker" stash was previously deleted by yourself when I came to add/edit it.

Could you message me and tell me your reasoning in this please? It certainly appears in patch 1.0005 and the contents look to be repeatable.

Regards

Byte Me

Byte Me (talk) 09:15, June 14, 2013 (UTC)


Thanks for the "OK" back in July (!)

After a few fumbles I think I managed to get my act together enough to contribute meaningful data for the most part.

Naturally, I got a bit carried away after that, seeking out info for all of the other deleted stashes, de-crosslinking them, renaming some so that "secret stash" and "chest with goods"  and "secret stash in the pipe" related to the correct sub-zone (and stash)

I'd like to think that I've left List of stashes in Shadow of Chernobyl in a better shape than I found it (and undid my earliest screwups)

If I trod on anyone's toes in the process please accept my apologies as this was NOT my intention, just getting the data right.

+++

Question:

There seems to be no Location relating to the Bandits' HQ / ranch / compound. Or am I missing something?? I could have used a link to this location severally. Comments please.

Navboxes and suchlikeEdit

Thanks for the reply, and the encouragement, and the suggestion regarding a big stash navbox. As I went on with what I was trying to do (navbox each region/level) and saw the size of the expanded navboxes, it became pretty clear that - even at that level - that quick information dissemination could be a problem. Fortunately, I'd already reworked them alphabetically and found some method of distinguishing "Backpack" and "Secret stash under the cross" from others in the same (or different regions) without disambiguation redirects. Not ideal I appreciate, because if there were a 1000 stashes then disambig probably would be de rigeur - but with 200 (gasp!) stashes - imho it's just about borderline.

Then I had a think about what had drawn me into bringing these pages up to date in the first place:

I couldn't remember what was where and had what in it, so I needed a reference that was easily navigated so that I didn't go running through a swamp, over a radioactive hill, fight off snorks and Zombies to get to a stash containing a Wretched artifact. If others gained some benefit as well, even better.

But now that I've been cross indexing them and including cat links to the Alphabetical list via categories as well you can search (visually - because there are only 200+) Alphabetically by region in "List of stashes in Shadow of Chernobyl" or Alphabetically from the whole lot in "Shadow of Chernobyl stashes".

Neither of which are easily surfed to....

Which do you need as a player? That depends. So many start with "secret stash..."  that sometimes searching the lot is quicker than searching through 6-8 regions.

Now that I have made all of the navboxes for the regions knocking together a masterr one from them should be straightforward, how you want it to look is a matter of formatted layout. Were you thinking of something along the lines of your existing templates for factions crossed with game? Bear in mind that 200+ entries along the lines of the stash navboxes would easily fill this page.

But you knew that.

Byte Me (talk) 16:24, December 26, 2013 (UTC)

SOCStashesEdit

I'm suitably impressed with your creation. I did some minor debugs and left a summary. I have no idea what code you want to invoke it with. I was surprised as to where the section links directed to. Since my brain is now blank, I'm logging off.

Interlanguage linking Edit

Hello, Octurion! I did some research on the international versions of this wiki, because I didn't see a lot of interlanguage links on the main page, and I've come to the following list of wikis:

I thought you could pass by w:Community Central:Interlanguage link requests to make a request to have them all linked to each other. Some may be small still, but if later on another wiki would end up bigger, you can still change it :)

Cheers!
