<font color="navy">Just a few things. How is this going to differ from [[Ultronomicon:Game events]]? Or, what will this walkthrough do that that article doesn't? The structure of the game is very non-linear so a traditional walkthrough would be difficult. If this walkthrough is going to be significantly different, you should probably use the game events article as a guide for mentioning required/optional events and order of events (when it exists) since I believe Phoenix and Svdb hashed those out fairly well. --[[User:Fyzixfighter|Fyzixfighter]] 21:10, 17 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">This Walk-Thru will be an in-depth, step by step guide to fisnihing the game. When I first played Ur-Quan, I got lost many times (lost meaning what to do next, not where I was in the universe ;)) and a guide would have helped me to see where I was and what I was supposed to do next. Alas, no guide exists on this Wiki so I have decided to create one myself, having completed the game recently. I wasn't aware [[Ultronomicon:Game events]] existed. Even so, I'm still going to go ahead and design this Walk Thru because it will be a lot of help to those new at playing. --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
<font color="navy">The standard that seems to have developed on this site for referring to planets/moons is "Zeta Centauri Ia", though I can't recall where or if we discussed this in depth. The star name followed by the roman numeral for the planet is typical of most of the in-game conversations. At the moment I can't find any in-game reference for the moon designation, but the lower case letters w/o hyphen designation is similar to that used in the [[Role Playing Resource Guide]]. I can't remember if there was a unique designation when in orbit of the moons in the PC version - none exists in UQM. --[[User:Fyzixfighter|Fyzixfighter]] 21:10, 17 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">Very well. I will change the format now :D I want to keep everything as normal as it should be :D --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
<font color="navy">It might be better to move all the '''NOTES''' to a separate section of their own since they are applicable to more than just the situation where they appear and their current position tends to break the flow of the article. --[[User:Fyzixfighter|Fyzixfighter]] 21:10, 17 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">Hmm. My original idea was to have small notes when something is first addressed, so the bigger the Walk-Thru gets, the less notes you'll see at the end of it. For eg, since mining minerals and fighting has already been addressed, it wont be elsewhere. However, if I move the notes to the bottom of the page, what do you think would be the best way to link them? I was thinking of linking it via a (?) button next to the text? --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
<font color="navy">Just some thoughts. Welcome aboard and good luck. --[[User:Fyzixfighter|Fyzixfighter]] 21:10, 17 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>

<font color="green">I think a walkthrough that tells the player what to do in a descriptive way could have a place here. But note that plenty of similar SC2 walkthroughs can be found across the web. &mdash; [[User:Svdb|SvdB]] 07:24, 18 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">Yes, there are heaps of SC2 walkthroughs, but they are for SC2 :P I have noticed quite a lot of differences in planets between a SC2 walkthrough and the Ur-Quan Masters game. So I thought I'd make an original walkthrough for this wiki. --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
:: <font color="green">There should really be no significant differences between SC2 and UQM (see [[Version Comparison]]). Got any examples? &mdash; [[User:Svdb|SvdB]] 19:33, 18 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
::: <font color="maroon">Well, mostly do do with planet and constellation names. For eg, in one point in the game, a SC2 walkthrough told me to go to the Androsynth homeworld of Epsilon Vulpeculae II. After searching for ages, I consulted this wiki to find it is actually at Eta Vulpeculae II. And there is a few of these differences. --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
<font color="green">One minor point of criticism &mdash; no, make that one BIG point of criticism: Using "thru" for "through" really hurts my eyes. &mdash; [[User:Svdb|SvdB]] 07:24, 18 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">Thru has been changed to Through. :D --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
:: <font color="green">I've made "walkthrough" one word; "walk through" is incorrect. "walk-through" is correct, but as "walkthrough" is the most common spelling, I've changed all mentions to that. &mdash; [[User:Svdb|SvdB]] 19:33, 18 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
::: <font color="maroon">Bleh. If thats how it should be..... no complaints :D Thanks. --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
<font color="navy">Before I start a minor edit war, I'd better explain some of the edits I had made to the article. The heading structure needs to be revisited in order to follow wikipedia conventions as described in [[Wikipedia:Manual of Style (headings)]]. Only the title of the article should be H1, which is done automatically. All other headings in the body of the article should be H2 or more. That said, I think you could take out the "Welcome..." heading, which seems to serve the same purpose as the article title, and have that paragraph be the opening paragraph for the entire article. This would be kind of awkward, though, given the "work in progress" heading above so you might have to move stuff around. --[[User:Fyzixfighter|Fyzixfighter]] 08:33, 18 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">Hmm. I thought the way it looked was fine. However, I hope the changes I have made to it now are what you meant. If not, feel free to edit it yourself and correct it. *Note* The "A work in progress" will be removed when the page is nearly complete and so will make the page look tidier. --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
<font color="navy">As to the Pkunk, they never actually join the cause. They do consider you a friend and offer ships on occasion, but they never formally ally with you nor send their ship designs and captains to the starbase. Thus, I think "assist" is a better description than "join" for their role. Yeah, it's a bit nitpicking but it's also being accurate. We wouldn't want someone to read the walkthrough and then wonder why they couldn't build Pkunk Furies at the starbase. --[[User:Fyzixfighter|Fyzixfighter]] 08:33, 18 Dec 2005 (CET)</font>
: <font color="maroon">Ok. I've changed it to 'assist' and 'help' rather than 'join' and 'ally'. I have also added a note regarding that fact that you dont get their plans so make those 4 ships last. --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
== Planets & Moons ==
Sorry to dip in late, but as I recall, the "Star_name IIa" designation for moons comes from the original PC version of SC2. That's the schema I used when first creating the various articles describing moons in the star system. It may not be mentioned in UQM, but it sure makes it easier to identify those things. --[[User:Phoenix|Phoenix]] [[User_talk:Phoenix|(t)]] 00:54, 19 Dec 2005 (CET)
: <font color="maroon">So basicly add an underscore for planets with two words in its name? --[[User:k776|k776]]</font>
::Oh, no. That was my way of denoting an example of a name. --[[User:Phoenix|Phoenix]] [[User_talk:Phoenix|(t)]] 01:53, 19 Dec 2005 (CET)
