Hello Ouposters!
« on: April 21, 2021, 08:53:46 PM »
Hey all - I just started playing Outpost 2 again after many years being away from it.  Wow, this game has aged so well!  I love that this site is up and seems to be staying active. 

It's so awesome you chose to go with DocuWiki for your wiki.  It is so lightweight, easy to use, and as I'm sure as the wiki devs know, is very portable (only html files).  I'm particularly interested in making some updates on the Wiki - such as building descriptions, and some linking among sections.  For example, If I look up a building, such as DIRT, it would be cool to have a blurb about its function.  On the vehicles page, it would be nice to have a description on how to create vehicles.  Otherwise, just some other additions as they come up, which I'd like to keep for my own reference, but should benefit everyone.

I'm active in digital archiving, and about to contribute a lot of software to archive.org, and with Oupost easily obtainable now to run on x64 systems, I hope there will continue to be a community of players.  I'm not sure how the Wiki is set up for collaboration - I'm assuming it might be invite-only.  I have experience with DocuWiki in particular and have developed and helped contribute to wikis in the past.  If any wiki devs are cool with considering another contributor, let me know and I'd also be happy to share some of my previous wiki work or get a login! :D

BTW - I never played Multiplayer, because when I had this game originally, we didn't have a home internet connection.  I've also never played Oupost I... :P

In the meantime - I'll catch everyone soon!

Hello and welcome!

I added you to the wiki as a user -- check your PM's for details of how to log in. I had to do it this way because even with anti-spam add-ons, spam bots would still get in. Let me know if you have any trouble!

And yes, please, wiki's are about user contribution and it's been needing some attention lately. A lot of the information about the tools we have available for working with Outpost 2 are very much out of date and many of the ones listed on the Wiki are no longer supported or have been deprecated in favor of new ones. You can get more details on Discord or even just ask away on the forums.

Looking forward to your contributions.
