Talk:Setting up a planetary colony
Ok, all the pieces for Your First Colony are in place. My plan is to put in some arrows and highlighting on the UI elements that are being referred to. However, I am trying to figure out how to make the layout look better. Some hints from the MediaWiki gurus appreciated.
At this point the pieces are all there, and I am a little sick of the project, so I am leaving it for a while to work on another action item. If someone wishes play with it in the mean time, have fun.

Pictures for extractors
They should be changed as they now use heads instead of single extractors.
Jason Bouchard: Agreed
Merging with Planetary Interaction page
Some of this information is out of date, and most of it -while candidate for improvement- doubled in Planetary Interaction
I am working on isolating the parts that are doubled and the parts that need to be moved. Once I have made sure all the key points are moved over, I will repost and suggest deletion Rurika tsuri (talk) 17:37, 12 November 2013 (UTC)
Intergration of both pages
- To me it makes sense to merge the two pages. As Planetary Industry is also Interaction with the Planets. My suggestion: Keep the Planetary Interaction page and merge the Planetary Industry page with it. Then delete the Planetary Industrie page. Maybe a simple copy and paste will do fine for the merge?
Frood: Yes please, merging all PI pages makes a huge amount of sense to me. Some information is redunant and a single page makes it much easier to use the browser search function to find what you are looking for.
Jason Bouchard: I'd be willing to merge the information on the pages. Do I need special approval to do that?
Just do it. If Frood thinks it's a good idea, you can take that to the bank. If, down the road, someone doesn't like the change, it can always be reverted. Nothing is lost. Dama arishe (talk) 21:01, 24 June 2014 (UTC)
To expand on what I said earlier, it's been suggested that the Planetary Buildings page be merged with this page. I think that seems better than slapping everything on the general PI page, which should be just that, general. Buildings and Industry, however, go hand-in-hand. Detailed information on structures you can build, plus a demonstration of how to set up a basic colony. Jason bouchard (talk) 13:44, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
I think it is going to be a tough task merging both pages. I think they both cover the same thing but in different ways. I think the title Planetary Industry is probably the wron title altogether. This page is more of a step by step setup guide. Perhaps rename to be that or make is a subsection of Planetary interaction page with the sub heading "Step by step setup" or something similar or better.
