  • I'm doing some editing since I just finished Devils Due and one of the main things I'm focusing on are the nations/factions pages. I haven't used a wiki in a while and I'm having trouble deleting and uploading photos. I was wondering if you could delete the Zanzabar map on the Zanzabar page and replace it with the one used in the book Devils Due?

    • Taylor sent two Zanzabar maps I'm going to upload the third he wanted it kept until the first as it is Silva's notes.  They realy changed the Wiki a bit. takes a while to learn things.  Will remove old map from article.

    • Also I'm going to try to work on the Grik Species page. A lot of it is accurate and useful information however it doens't decern the difference between the grik empire and the grik species. I plan to make it more clear that there is a difference between the empire and the species.

    • PS on removal when all else fails control x works ;)

    • On top of everything else the powers that be redesigned the top of the page, and you get shoved into classic editor alot, OK but a mess for templates.  If you go to the exicutive page the third icon next to the pages you add photos there [more options ;) ] and have access to the full copyright icons.  It's a bug they are aware of.  For regular articles I start out in Classic, save, then go to regular editor to put in boxes, not that I've put in pages for the new characters and ships you don't have to mess with this!  Thinking about putting up the small arms of the Republic Darby Gun = French 75  Oh heck my notes

      New Aircraft and Weapons introduced in Devil’s Due:

      Republic Derby Gun (based on French 75) breach loading 75mm field peace made in Derby, Republic of Real People [195]

      Republic Cantet airplanes, bi-plane, crew 2- pilot and observer/machine gunner colored with a kind of earth colored jagged checked pattern.  Engine liquid cooled, but more powerful for their size [248].

      At least 3 or the 4 tanks were knocked out in Operation Outhouse Rat (OOR)

      Single Shot bolt action rifles shooting 11mm [195] based on Mauser Model 1871 see Info from Taylor Anderson

      11mm Revolver see Info from Taylor

      Info from Taylor Anderson for Wiki: Tech Data suitable for Wiki: As of Devil’s Due, the “standard” infantry rifle of the United Homes and increasingly, the Grand Alliance (with the exception of the Republic of Real People) is the Allin-Silva “trapdoor” conversion. It has a 36″ barrel with a bore diameter of .50, land to land, and .514 groove to groove. Rate of twist is 1-48″. It fires a .50-80 caliber straight(very slightly tapered)cartridge, loaded with a 450grn medium-soft alloy lead bullet with large grease grooves filled with a high temperature natural wax cut with grikakka oil. The bullet alloys vary, but achieve a Brinell hardness @ 10. Powder charge is 80grns of medium fine (roughly 3FFFG equivalent) charcoal, potassium nitrate, and sulfur gunpowder. Muzzle velocity averages 1,500 FPS (checked on a LabRadar Doppler radar chronograph). The Republic is currently wedded to a single-shot bolt action 11mm (.43 Mauser) based on the M-71 [see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mauser_Model_1871 ], without a magazine. (This may well change, now that the necessity is apparent, but the original reasoning was to quickly produce a strong, simple breechloader they could easily feed). The Republic’s service revolver is also 11mm.

    Hey!

    In our Community Central blog post comment discussion I promised a workaround for the issue you're seeing with the switch to the Classic editor.

    I thought that the input box would work, such as the one at User:TOR, but sadly no luck there. :( So I'll just make sure we get that bug fixed quickly. Apologies for the inconvenience.

    Keep your fingers crossed for our developers. ;)

  • Was looking up some last ditch weaponry (because I love weaponry) and I came across something that reminded me of the BlitzerBug. Google the MP-3008 and find an image of it with a wooden stock.

  • There is a page entitled "Grik" and this page has been bothering more than any other page on this entire wiki. I spent about an hour smoothing out and adding to the "Grik Empire" page however the page labled simply as "Grik" is confussing for me and I'm considering renaming it "Grik (Species)" and erasing all of the information on it and starting over again (since all of the information of that page is already on the "Grik Empire" page). But in order for me to do this Grik Species page I need to know what all clasifies as Grik. Are the Tagranesi Grik? Are the Khonashi Grik? And are the Swamp Lizards Grik too? Or is the term "Grik" used just to describe the inhabitants of the Grik Empire? If the latter is true then what is the actual name of this species of lizard people we've been fighting since the first book? And are the Tagranesi, Khonashi, and the Swamp Lizards of the same species or are they of an entirely different race alltogether?

    I'm absolutly shit at explaining things so if you're confuesed by this just let me know and I'll see if I can find a way to explain it in Layman terms.

    • Short answer I think the Grik are a race of a reptilian species, but I would wait for the next book before making major changes, hint, hint, nudge, nudge, say no more.

    • Has Mr.Anderson revailed anything on this subject? It wouldn't make for any spoilers (I don't think) as I'm asking for what classifies as the Grik species.

        Loading editor
    • The books to date have used race when refering to Grik like species but nothing definative.  I know a little of culture and life cycle that will be in next book, and he noted we will learn a lot about the Grik.  Thus I think the Species or Race question is not firm yet.  He has been very busy with book promotions and conventions so we have not talked lately.

      Oh did you notice Taylor’s hint in BITW that Keje-Fris-Ar and Tassat-Ay-Aracca may be romantically involved, both are single needing a mate, and their USNRS carriers, Salissa and Arracca, have linked to form a “Home” under the new constitution of the United Homes?  Guess I need to make a smaller carrier silhouet to fit two in the circle for a UH flag.

  • One of the biggest things I beleive this wiki has is a lack of pages regarding battles. Recently I've noticed you and that Russian guy have been adding them which is fantastic (as i don't really care to re-read and go through an older book to look up the details. One of the biggest things we need is more date recording as well.

    Also I was thinking of adding a battle page in which it'll list all of the battles in the Destroyermen series in chronological order.

  • Are you aware of the website TvTropes? I've been using it for over a year now but only recently did I discover a page dedicated to the Destroyermen series and it's really facinating, I thought you might like a look!
