Fire Detector

You're smoking! Awesome job on linking everything. Please keep it up. --wisemx 17:47, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)


Thanks for the welcome! Pistol Whipped

You should put a link for bot-assistedts2do (talk) 13:40, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Oddly enough, I recently put one on my user page. —Maven (talk) 17:14, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

No...I mean when you post the thing have the comment be a link...also...are you gonna finish func_physbox_multiplayer? inherits func_physbox—ts2do (talk) 17:24, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Oh. That's an excellent idea. I'll do that. And I'm done with func_physbox_multiplayer — I figured it didn't warrant another set of templates; I just said that it has the same keyvalues,flags,inputs,outputs as func_physbox. I certainly don't mind if you want to do something else with it, though. —Maven (talk) 17:27, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)


I think I have this bot thing figured out now. Maven-bot is the bot's account. Testing to begin shortly. —Maven (talk) 17:57, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Ok, maybe not "shortly". Maybe "longly". —Maven (talk) 18:05, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I've adapted a suite of Wikipedia bots to work here. So far they can log in and read pages, but until/unless the admins update the XML export the bot won't be able to do anything useful. —Maven (talk) 13:37, 20 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Prop gallery

Sir maven...check this out:
I coded my own prop gallery—ts2do (talk) 22:05, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I'll check it out tomorrow. For now, must sleep. If you have an automated way to take pictures of props, though, I'd be thrilled to hear it. —Maven (talk) 22:12, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

it's done in php...if I'm on, you can view the source directly from my computer:—ts2do (talk) 22:55, 19 Oct 2005 (PDT)

That's very nice! —Maven (talk) 12:47, 20 Oct 2005 (PDT)
Ok, I've downloaded the source. Examining now... —Maven (talk) 13:03, 20 Oct 2005 (PDT)

How bout that source?—ts2do (talk) 16:08, 21 Oct 2005 (PDT)

What about it? It looked cleanly done. Lacked comments, but was clear enough anyway. I think that Valve would be doing themselves a favor to use your gallery code on their site (maybe linking model detail pages to wiki pages), but even if you donate it they probably wouldn't want to run third-party code on their servers. <shrug> —Maven (talk) 16:16, 21 Oct 2005 (PDT)

well it's you know—ts2do (talk) 16:48, 21 Oct 2005 (PDT)

another + is the php outputs easy notepad readable html that's also w3c 1.1—ts2do (talk) 16:49, 21 Oct 2005 (PDT)

You used my note template, I love you! lol—ts2do (talk) 15:02, 22 Oct 2005 (PDT)

<chuckle> —Maven (talk) 15:13, 22 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Check it out: [2]ts2do (talk) 21:18, 23 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Well!—ts2do (talk) 05:50, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)
In $10 yearly installments, non-transferable. <grin> —Maven (talk) 12:35, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Model gallery mock-up

that third thing isnt called's the breakable models part...and that template won't always work out because not all models are like that—ts2do (talk) 16:40, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

So I'll make it more general—this is only a first pass. I won't apply it to anything real until it's been reviewed. What should submodels be called? Gibs? —Maven (talk) 16:45, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I really don't thin this is the best way to approach a model gallery...breakable models can use other keyvalues too so this isn't very easy to do with simple templates—ts2do (talk) 18:05, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

There can be multiple templates and even optional parts. I admit that I don't know much about modeling. Would you give me an example of a few models that would require radically-different tables? If I can handle them, great; alternately, perhaps that will convince me to give it up. —Maven (talk) 18:09, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

List of u gotta categorize them lol—ts2do (talk) 19:10, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

well if I got a host for mine...I'd not hesitate to build on my system—ts2do (talk) 20:38, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I think that it would be useful to have it in the wiki. —Maven (talk) 20:44, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

it's very makes a load of pages of models—ts2do (talk) 20:47, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

We already have a load of pages about entities... That doesn't seem to be a problem. —Maven (talk) 21:07, 24 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Abstract Mapping

What do you thinK? Abstract Mappingts2do (talk) 19:45, 25 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Weee! Thanks. —Maven (talk) 19:47, 25 Oct 2005 (PDT)
This is a great idea, good luck with it! --TomEdwards 10:00, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)
Thanks! And, of course, I encourage everyone to join in. —Maven (talk) 11:24, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)
BTW, you might be better off using categories. --TomEdwards 10:02, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)
True, true. If/when it's switched to a category, a name change might even be in order, since it's not just about mapping. It's more of a general navigation hub for abstract concepts. —Maven (talk) 11:24, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I know but I tend to see it AFTER I do an edit...maybe it should be made a full page height and red?—ts2do (talk) 16:52, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)

Ok, if it's accidental then I'm not so annoyed. Yeah, maybe making it taller/bolder/redder would be useful. —Maven (talk) 16:55, 26 Oct 2005 (PDT)

I vote 3rd one on ur sandbox—ts2do (talk) 15:17, 27 Oct 2005 (PDT)

The last one, page bottom, but put a break between the sentences. --wisemx 15:30, 27 Oct 2005 (PDT)
I rather like the last one, too, especially considering that many mod articles have pictures along the side. —Maven (talk) 17:06, 27 Oct 2005 (PDT)

[3] OGM!!—ts2do (talk) 19:19, 27 Oct 2005 (PDT)
