Autogenerated Galaxy Guide

This is a kind of "Project Page" for the Autogenerated Galaxy Guide.

Status

I'm working on improving Galaxy Sector 1 and the new Galaxy Sector 2.

Contact

For requests and criticism use the thread Galaxy Guide on the Oolite Bulletin Board. or send me (user treczoks) a PM there.

If you can help with knowledge of the game engines interna, please participate in the thread [1]. Pretty, pretty please with sugar on top!

Aims

I started this project because I consider it crucial that in such a multi-author environment the store background is as consistent as possible. When I asked how the various fiction and OXP writers communicate and coordinate their efforts and how they know whether a system is already part of another authors story domain, I only learned that there is no real coordination and synchronisation effort.

Another factor was to get a better overview over the worlds of the Oolite multiverse.

Sources

Information

I started off with an extract of the list in Oolite planet list/Galaxy 1, but I soon learned that this would never give me the information on prices and availabilities of items, so I analyzed the TXTELITE and Oolite sources and the spreadsheet and wrote a perl module to give me all the relevant information.

I took the information on trade routes and regions from the Downloadable Vector Map of Galaxy 1 made by ClymAngus.

Icons

I grabbed the icons for governments and economies for the project from an Oolite font png found in the sources:

Logo64 Anarchy.png Logo64 Feudal.png Logo64 MultiGovernment.png Logo64 Dictatorship.png Logo64 Communism.png Logo64 Confederacy.png Logo64 Democracy.png Logo64 CorporateState.png

Logo64 PoorAgricultural.png Logo64 AverageAgricultural.png Logo64 RichAgricultural.png Logo64 MainlyAgricultural.png Logo64 MainlyIndustrial.png Logo64 PoorIndustrial.png Logo64 AverageIndustrial.png Logo64 RichIndustrial.png

The Icons for the tech level were made by me:

14 Logo TL14.png Logo TL14s.png
15 Logo TL15.png Logo TL15s.png

Templates

To ease the programming and helping to get a more consistent look, I designed various templates:

The System Description Box on the right side Template:System
The smaller System Description Box in the text body Template:SmallSystem
The box for the original Oolite System Descriptions Template:GalacticCatalogueEntry
Header, Entry and Footer for a Witchspace List Template:WitchspaceHeader Template:WitchspaceEntry Template:WitchspaceFooter
Header, Entry and Footer for a Systems List Template:SectorTableHeader Template:SectorTableEntry Template:SectorTableFooter

Dummy templates needed to accomodate ancient MediaWiki

As the extension ParserFunctions 1.1.1 for the MediaWiki 1.9 does not support the "switch" function, I had to work around some problems by creating a bunch of dummy Templates:

Needed for Number-to-Icon conversion in the System template header
