What can we do to help?

Is there anything you need?

How can a mere peon in the game creating world help?

Thanks for the reminder Ironwolf :)

If anyone has any ideas for things we can all work on, please post them in this thread.

Also, since I predict that initial part of the work will likely consist of expressing your ideas and thoughts in editable form I encourage anyone who's interested in helping out, to register on redmine.nemerle.eu
That site is a combined bug-tracker, wiki and few other nice things. Right now the redmine accounts are activated by-hand, so do not hesitate to PM me if your account is not activated within ~8h :)

This week is pretty work-intensive, this post shall serve as a place holder to be filled with all the things that can be done to advance SEGS penultimate goal :)

Simple thing that can and should be done:
"Ich was in one sumere dale,
in one suthe diyhele hale,
iherde ich holde grete tale
an hule and one niyhtingale."

Task: Content team preliminary work
Description: We need a centralized list of all CoH's areas, links to all the area's descriptions, quests, badges, spawns, lore and more

Why is it useful ? Whatever tools we will finally provide, the Content Team members working on recreating any part of the original world, will need a big reference sheet for all areas of CoH.

At the beginning this will likely be a simple list of links to external wikis, after we have tools we might need to consider the formatting of said content to ease any further work.

Should we start debating what Issue number now? Most of the wikis would be ~Issue 23. Whereas I thought SEGS was going more for Issue 2.

We could do something like
A wiki link : relevant since Issue #
, what do You think ?
That way, people working on writing various world scripts could find relevant bits faster.

I do realize that finding full info for I0-I1 might be pretty hard, any wiki archeologists around here ? :D

Its not the full info, but I do have a hard copy of the Prima guide "Now updated with material from Issue 1: Through the Looking Glass" that has a lot of details on:
  • zones
  • contacts
  • villain groups
  • badges
  • rewards
  • powers
Just about everything except for a list of missions. I can try posting some of the details and stamp it as I1.

Do You want to post that here, or on our wiki ?

I guess the wiki would be a better place for it.

I have completely wrapped Prima guides for both CoH and CoV that I would be more than willing to donate.
