Behold Keepers, a Wiki!

Postby Stubbies » Sat Feb 01, 2014 2:57 pm

Hey all,

With the recent release of Dungeon Keeper worldwide I took it upon myself to start a wiki.

http://dungeon-keeper.wikia.com/wiki/Dungeon_Keeper_Wiki

Currently, it is heavily unfinished, with lots of missing data. But the road to evil is paved with good intentions, right? :twisted:


Editing is currently public access so feel free to input!

Areas that need major development:
  • Data for low(er) level everything - I started this with everything around level 4, so any information below that would be great!
  • Images and artwork - I have absolutely zero artistic flair and draw everything in Paint. Photoshop to me is the equivalent of Intrinsic Field Theory. If Mythic could provide me with in-game art for absolutely everything I'd be happier than my fish, who is a very happy fish. Seriously, it's creepy.
  • Formatting/spell checks/appeasing my autism - I am seriously rushing through trying to get every page started with useful information. If a page looks ugly right now, I'm sorry but trust me, it hurts me more than you. PS. If you don't like my spelling, it's because I'm Aussie.
  • Additional pages - Currently I have created pages for some of the more common items, there is however a lot of pages missing.

Areas that require minor development:
  • Categorization and links - Right now, no page links to another and nothing is categorized.


Happy Raiding!

Added a little info most of the rooms.

Changed the upgrade cost/time info to the next level. This way the level 1 gets initial build time and level 10 actually gets a build time instead of level 9 showing what time it takes to upgrade to level 10.

Well done!
The game developers are unable provide such information.
Known company, and such shortcomings.
There is no information about minions, rooms, spells, traps -> it to developers game
Not to mention the game mechanics ...

I added some information to Wiki.

Thanks heaps guys, the wiki is most definitely a community project and a big part of making the game successful, one I'm happy to be a part of.

I've scheduled in Minions, traps and spells for during the week, but it is a slow process so bear with me.



@Mythic: Any chance you guys could email/message me with in-game art designs? It would go far in updating the wiki and save me a lot of hassle of trying to edit screenshots of bouncing green arrows. Also, if there is any information you would like reflected on the Main Page please feel free to let me know or edit yourselves!

Kinda surprised at the lack of fan site kits.

Going to see if I can pry apart the asset files to have a zip of the 2d images, that should help.


Now to go figure out .gas files.

A few things regarding tables:

Firstly, the wikia tables are just plain bad. They're inflexible and uninspiring. Also, resizing them in edit mode appears to not work and the result is these huge ugly tables we currently have. I think we may need to limit the amount of data in each table and segregate between basic groups of stats, especially on defensive buildings.

Now, I'm a labourer by day and not that flash with this sort of stuff so I'm sure there will be someone on here who is a spreadsheet wizard that'll be able to decipher my jargon.

Any thoughts guys?

Some wikia have templated tables that you could still the codes from. If I could get on a computer I could help format it, but atm I'm only on a phone. But look at other wikia and maybe take from them?
