Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

Wish to create a Chinese version of Astroneer Wiki[]

Hello! I'm an Astroneer player, with a native language of Chinese Mandarin. I found my way here according to this page. Sorry if I made a mistake.

I have experience in editing wiki pages (at Minecraft Wiki, with some translation work). But building a whole wiki from nothing is still new to me. I'm not sure if that's enough for starting this work. I enjoy playing Astroneer and wish to share game skills with all players using Chinese, even though it can be hard to complete. I will start translating the main page. Hopefully it will be done in several days.

Would you please teach me how to start this work? Thanks for reading this message! Have a nice day :)

Hey there! Thank you for your interest in translating Astroneer Wiki! You did the right move by contacting me. The only thing I need you to do before we can proceed and create a new ZH version of Astroneer Wiki is to translate the pages related to the main page. How those pages are translated, just contact me back and I'll see about requesting a new wiki version. Have a nice day! :) MannedTooth (talk) 07:54, 23 February 2019 (UTC)
Hello again! I've finished the translation of the main page sections. Now it almost looks like what it should be like in zh! By the way, some sites are banned in China Mainland so I've removed them. I also added a Chinese local community. Next step I'll start translation from several vital pages in the main navigation. Thanks for your work! 1479hh (talk) 07:29, 24 February 2019 (UTC)
Nicely done! I've submitted a request to make a ZH version of the wiki. I'll get back to you when it's ready! :) MannedTooth (talk) 20:14, 25 February 2019 (UTC)
There you go, the wiki is now up and running over here! MannedTooth (talk) 03:00, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Got it! Thank you so much! 1479hh (talk) 06:06, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Wish to Change the default skin of HydraDark to Hydra on ZH Astroneer Wiki[]

I think Hydra fits Astroneer better, also because EN Wiki uses it. How can I make this change? Do I need to become an admin first? 1479hh (talk) 15:04, 26 February 2019 (UTC)

Hey there, Astroneer possesses both a light and dark theme. The light theme is the one by default. To change the skin you're using, you need to go to your your preference page. MannedTooth (talk) 20:02, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
Sorry but I did found the default one as the dark theme when logged off, just the same as the CS version. But for some reason it now became the light one! I don't know what happened, but thanks for telling me those anyway! Have a nice day :) 1479hh (talk) 20:40, 26 February 2019 (UTC)
The reason for this is because for some reason, the person who set the new wiki up put the dark theme as the default one. I changed that. Hope that clarifies it. MannedTooth (talk) 01:23, 27 February 2019 (UTC)

Wish to make some further translation regrading the wiki system[]

Hello there! I noticed that some tabs like "share" and "purge" are not translated unlike other parts when the wiki was established, some content in the netbar, the sidebar and the footer too. I've claimed the wiki as admin , so I'm wondering if I can translate them since the example of Minecraft Wiki is fully translated. I searched for a while without finding any answer, so I came here again to seek some help.

These small changes are also wanted:

  • Favicon: None to Same as EN Astroneer Wiki
  • Website Title: Astroneer Wiki to 中文 Astroneer Wiki, which means "Chinese Astroneer Wiki"

Thank you for supporting this wiki! Have a good day :) 1479hh (talk) 13:55, 2 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey there, so you want to look here. Just find the word you want to translate, and click on its link, it will create a page. For example, MediaWiki:Purge for "Purge". Just make sure the MediaWiki:Pagetitle and MediaWiki:Pagetitle-view-mainpage contain the word "Official" translated in Chinese. As for the favicon, I am fixing that right away. :) MannedTooth (talk) 04:25, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Though I should say, do not change the footer or anything legal/copyright related, those are to stay as they are until we receive an official translated one. MannedTooth (talk) 04:31, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Got it! I've read the Wiki Design Rules and am aware of this. The title would be "官方中文Astroneer Wiki", with "Official" as the first word. That really helped. Thank you so much! ZH Astroneer Wiki cannot be built without you! 1479hh (talk) 08:07, 4 March 2019 (UTC)
Super happy I could help! If you have any other question, please do not hesitate to contact me! :) MannedTooth (talk) 20:04, 4 March 2019 (UTC)

Question on Regional Conversion System[]

Hi there! The default ZH conversion system coming with MediaWiki is great though, I noticed that some of the conversions may not be that adequate for the game content. So I'm wondering if I could edit some of the conversions.

According to ZH Wikipedia, the Conversion system consists of there parts, two of which are global. They are "ZHConversion.php" and "MediaWiki:Conversiontable". I made some experiments with the latter but nothing happened.

I'm not familiar with the technical details, so I wonder if I could get some help? Thanks! 1479hh (talk) 13:35, 24 March 2019 (UTC)

Hey there, I will contact someone who may be in better position to answer that, will keep in touch shortly. MannedTooth (talk) 01:12, 26 March 2019 (UTC)
Hey there, my ressource thinks you might want to look into here. MannedTooth (talk) 03:02, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
I'll give it a try, and hope it could work. Thank you for finding this! 1479hh (talk) 03:08, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
It worked! Seems that it would take a while before the conversions start to take effect. Thank you so much! 1479hh (talk) 03:40, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
No worries! I'm always happy to help! :) MannedTooth (talk) 04:19, 27 March 2019 (UTC)
