Hey, total newb here who was directed to this thread by a friendly person in my confused newbie thread here. I'm going to refrain from posting more until I print out and read all the juicy information in the 5 links contained in the OP. Huge main thanks go to the people who wrote those guides, and thanks to the OP here for compiling them.
Mainly posting just to point out that
- in the main link to the 3rd and 4th guide, "Resource" is spelled incorrectly. Just a minor thing, maybe want an edit?
I since read 85% of the discussions in this thread, and would merely like to add (hopefully in a constructive, helpful way?)
- I'd love a WIKI. Particularly one with details about details, which is something a WIKI is pretty good at. I do not think that this would make guides such as those compiled here obsolete in any way, which are all pretty much like semi-detailed essays, or at least seem that way to someone who has only skimmed them so far. I'd love a wiki which would include things like detailed information about energy, for example, but then let you click on links to components, such as Energy Collectors, which would then be detailed descriptions of what those components actually do (stats-wise also) in-game. But I am both too ignorant (don't know crap about this game yet) and too inept to make a wiki, but maybe I could contribute to it when I am big and strong.
- I have no desire to play a role in further exacerbating what appears to be an unfortunate series of unlucky exchanges, but if this helps, then yey, otherwise: sorry. I am more of a neutral observer as either the OP or any of the commenters can be considered (since they are already engaged in the "discussion"), and it appears to me (who has nothing to lose or gain from taking any "sides") that there is quite a bit of hostility on many "sides" in this thread. Once someone feels insulted -- rightly or wrongly: I mean, there are obviously people who would agree that the OPs response to the wiki suggestion was somewhat hostile (I can see that in some ways too), but probably there are going to be people who interpret the OPs response in a different way -- there's no use trying to figure out "who is right". Just because that it is a correct assessment ("person X has said something in a hostile way"), stating that assessment in a way that will only make the person get angry is an invitation to start further aggression. Maybe it would help to just take it easy a bit and try not to add fuel to the fire?
EDIT: Ehm sorry, guess this is not helping.
Back on track: thanks for the help to newbs from all you wise folks out there, much appreciated.
