Documentation Error:

In the Crystal Ship List (http://planets.nu/#/howtoplay/RaceSheetPlus), the LDSF's cargo capacity is 600 instead of 1200.

This is odd... Whisperer has stated they have no control over that Document numerous times.

So was he lying to us before... or was he just stating it was fixed, but actually by the Admins and not by himself as it appears he has attempted to frame it as.

@Glyn,

You're getting confused. We have no control over the http://planets.nu/#/howtoplay/RaceSheet document. The http://planets.nu/#/howtoplay/RaceSheetPlus document is an easier to read version that we DO have control over. On rare occasion, an error pops up because it's created by hand and not by automation.

The creation of that document was approved by the Admins.

That is the original Race Sheet that Big Beefer and the team uses, @Glyn. We crafted our own "Race Sheet Plus", and focused our efforts on that document.

@CSY: Cool beans, that is exactly what I suggested be done! Funny, Whisperer crapped all over that idea when I stated it.

RaceSheetPlus would probably be better off if the column orientation matched the column title orientation like is does in the Admins RaceSheet.

Glad the community was listened to and the suggestion to move Cloak from a column to the renamed 'Abilities' column was done.

Since the column order has already been changed, might be better to make the ship name the first column.

Also the Horwasp Accelerator probably should be labeled a Pod... but of course the Pod description itself isn't exactly correct for the Accelerator let alone most pods;

- It says "they must be intercepted in order for them to be brought to enter combat", in reference to both armed and unarmed pods... but is only true for unarmed pods as armed pods initiate combat all on their own thus not requiring to be interecepted.

- It says "starships with this ability must have a planet or planetoid set as their final waypoint", but the Protofield of course doesn't despite having Pod as its ability.

Since they have control over this, multiple pod type abilities could be used or just update the Pod ability to take care of the Accelerator and Protofield which break from the normal armed/unarmed Pod aspect.

@Glyn,

Thank you for the suggestions. I'll go over them one at a time.

> would probably be better off if the column orientation matched the column title orientation

To do that, we'd need to shrink the font size. That's one of the gains in the Plus page. The tradeoff was considered, and the current method was determined to be the best path, primarily due to the aging player population (old eyes work better with the larger font).

> might be better to make the ship name the first column

This was also considered. The primary sort field is Tech, so it made sense to have that first.

> Accelerator probably should be labeled a Pod

I just checked this. There's some stuff missing from the Horwasp data that used to be in there. This issue will be looked into.

> It says "they must be intercepted in order for them ...

The word "intercepted" isn't in that page.

> It says "starships with this ability must have a planet or planetoid set as their final waypoint" ...

The word "planetoid" isn't in that page.

> multiple pod type abilities could be used or just update the Pod ability to take care of the Accelerator and Protofield which break from the normal armed/unarmed Pod aspect

This will be considered by the team, but will not happen soon.

@Whisperer: They were quotes, so you should have realized whatever page you are looking at cleary isn't the same one I was. The page I was quoting, was as I stated, "Glyn: the Pod description"... which is what clicking on the 'Pod' link under Abilities on the RaceSheetPlus takes you to... which I just doubled checked, still contains the sentences I quoted. http://help.planets.nu/abil-pod

Discussion of a different page belongs in a different thread. This page is about problems in the RaceSheetPlus page.

@Whisperer: That is just your opinion... you are not a moderator no matter how much you try to act like you are. I was talking about 'Pod' description on the RaceSheetPlus for starters, which makes the description for it relevant.

Right. That means I'll be ignoring your off-topic requests.

If you post it in it's own thread, you'll get a meaningful response.

@Whisperer: I haven't made a request for you to ignore in the first place.

If you can't comprehend the difference between a suggestion and a request, no wonder you are always a jerk to people on this site when they make suggestions.

@Glyn,

Sorry about the delay getting back to you on this. I was working on the Super Star Frigate issue.

> the Horwasp Accelerator probably should be labeled a Pod

The Accelerator isn't a Pod, according to the definition in the Pod Ability page (http://planets.nu/#/howtoplay/abil-pod). Unlike a Pod, the Accelerator doesn't need to have a planet/planetoid as the destination. Because of this, the Pod tag won't be added to the Accelerator.

We (the Documentation Team) do need to decide how to more clearly define the various Horwasp Ballistic ships, but this will probably not happen until Joshua marks them as Production.

The possibility of removal of the Horwasp is one of the reasons for delaying this change. The other is that, due to the problems with them (too strong in the early game and too weak in the late game), we feel that some significant changes will be forthcoming, especially in this area.

@Whisperer: Seeing as you have done things like call me gay and mock my dead mother, perpetually lie and never self-correct when you frequently answer questions wrong... we ALL would prefer you stop your campaign of harassment.

I specifically said nothing in this thread warranting you to talk to me. Obvious troll is obvious.

@Glyn,

It appears to me that you missed this:

> We (the Documentation Team) do need to decide how to more clearly define the various Horwasp Ballistic ships, but this will probably not happen until Joshua marks them as Production.

The only people who can change that are Joshua, Big Beefer and Gnerphk. If you have a problem with that, please contact one of them. I DON'T CARE.
