After some time off, I’ve returned to editing the Sarna.net wiki and have plenty of ideas for improving the wiki. As usual, there’s the constant need for new articles and article updates, as well as the ever-growing pile of articles that need proofreading. I want to pick up where I left off with the unofficial “project video games”.
With this project we are aiming to vastly improve our coverage of the various video games in the BattleTech universe. Though these games are not expressly canon, they still are an important part of the ongoing universe and deserve better coverage than they have gotten.
So far, we have quantified and organized all the MechCommander and MechCommander 2 equipment stats, but the ’Mech and vehicle pages for the original MechCommander need work. With more help for those pages and for all the MechWarrior games’ related pages, these video games could be much better covered.
In addition to raw stats, many items unique to the games have not been covered at all on Sarna; because of this we are also adding many new Structure pages, from turrets to command centers and everything in between. This seemingly overlooked category is what I will personally be focusing on in the short term. After the structures and MechCommander are finished, we plan on moving to the MechWarrior and MechAssault games.
There is such rich fiction and information in these video games, and it would be a shame to overlook them. If you have any of these games or simply would be willing to help improve pages here on Sarna, your time would be appreciated. We can’t do it alone; Sarna is run by volunteers, and we could always use more help, not only on the video game sections, but also around the wiki. If you have some free time and want to help, we’ d be more than happy to get you started!
