With you doing a load of stuff on the planet coordinates and nearby systems, I thought it would be a good time to ask since the projects planets stuff has so many iterations and talk pages etc I have no idea what is the current standard. I have been using Help:CreatePlanetArticle when I work on pages, from your changes do we have a more up-to date article template that I am not aware of? If so could you point me in the right direction please.
Secondly we have a few systems like Ahlat that are canon, have coords but no nearby systems table, do we have a way of generating one without me having to sit and do maths?--Dmon (talk) 15:02, 5 January 2020 (EST)
- Hey Dmon! Yeah sorry, BattleTechWiki:Project_Planets/Mapping is a little hard to follow with so many different discussions around it. We're starting to make progress again, so you may see some updates.
- I've updated Help:CreatePlanetArticle, so it has the instructions for Nearby Systems. These will all be auto-generated (including Ahlat), probably within a week, so no need to touch any of them. Thanks! Nicjansma (talk) 08:47, 6 January 2020 (EST)
- Hey Nic,
- The new tables look incredible! Only one small nitpick though, back in the Battlecorps days the writing guidelines made a point that Sol is never to be called Sol but to be called Terra. I know this is scientifically wrong but it does seem to be the in universe standard.
- Also MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries added a few new systems that due to the fact the game has the entire sphere mapped we might be able to get some system coords for.--Dmon (talk) 15:11, 13 January 2020 (EST)
Hey Nic, I have noticed that a few of the macro generated maps are not working properly. (File:Rastaban 3151.svg is a good example, is there any chance you could look into it and see if you can find out what is wrong.--Dmon (talk) 07:12, 16 April 2020 (EDT)
