Edit this box

CoolNavBoxes are out of date

Could we get an update? There are two new planets now, and I imagine people are being turned away if the wiki looks that outdated.


Having been a lurker here for a while, and snooping for useful info, I have found the tutorials pretty good. But the direct users guide kind of game play descriptions not as well organized. Such as how to use the Settings Menu or the Nav ball should be more prominently displayed. I would like to make some edits, but would like some discussion or feed back first.Lefick (talk) 15:07, 20 September 2013 (CDT)

Shouldn't the link to Parts under "Important Links" be just Parts instead of All default parts in KSP? That's how it's named in some other languages (es, hr, pl), it is explained by the non-link text anyway (right now it kind of doubles). I know this is an extremely minor thing, but it's the main wiki page after all. --8MMW (talk) 15:31, 31 May 2014 (CDT)

Recent events wrong dates

Recent events 0.19 and 0.18 dates are wrong as they were released in 2012. Someone with more info about those could fix the dates — Preceding unsigned comment added by Tuupertunut (talkcontribs)

That is not correct. 0.18.2 was released 2012 but every update after that was released 2013. I've been playing KSP since December 2012 with 0.18.2. Also version history#v0.18.3 .28Demo.29 agrees with me. — xZise [talk] 10:24, 22 October 2013 (CDT)
Strange. I have started in 0.19 and remember reading somewhere from this wiki that 0.19 was released in August/September 2012. Could have been a mistake in wiki or in my head, but anyways you seem right. - Tuupertunut (talk) 18:12, 22 October 2013 (CDT)
Here is the working link for the release of 0.19: [talk] 19:42, 22 October 2013 (CDT)

Name change of the wiki?

I'm just thinking, maybe rename the kerbal space program wiki to Kerbapedia?Just a suggestion. --Mozziedoo (talk) 03:17, 6 February 2014 (CST)

Fan-made Tool section

There's plenty of online tools for calculations related to the game (orbits, Δv etc.) and there isn't a forum thread or wiki page that has at least a rudimentary list of them, which I think would be beneficial. If it's ok, I'd like to make one here on the wiki for inclusion on the main page (as it seems the logical place to put it imho) - I don't think the forum would be ideal for this as it would require me (or whoever creates the thread) to be the sole maintainer, unlike the wiki. --MechaLynx (talk) 22:40, 10 April 2014 (CDT)

Go ahead and create such a repository. There was actually such a list, although pretty short, on addon. Now it was removed, because the lists on there weren't really maintained, but you can find it here. If it's good I'll add it to the main page. You can also add a link to Tutorials. — xZise [talk] 10:01, 12 April 2014 (CDT)
I've started working on it, should be done within the next couple of days, time permitting. I'd like to delay posting a link until it's ready if that's ok. (edit: I just realised it's super easy to get a link lol :P was just worried about trollish interference, but I guess that's a moot point now) --MechaLynx (talk) 21:39, 14 April 2014 (CDT)
Uh, dude the page has been ready for some while now. I know you're busy but it's just standing there being useless. I'll add a link to Tutorials soon so that there's at least something linking to it (I think it's good enough to be linked somewhere on the wiki, but I won't add a link on the main page unless you or some other mature member does so). --MechaLynx (talk) 10:04, 29 April 2014 (CDT)
So I've added your two articles. — xZise [talk] 13:06, 29 April 2014 (CDT)
Thanks mate. I only made one article though :P Is it ok if I announce it on the forums so that tool authors know that it's there? --MechaLynx (talk) 19:07, 29 April 2014 (CDT)
Ah I though you were talking about addon. Either way they are now up there. And about the forum, do as you like. — xZise [talk] 12:44, 30 April 2014 (CDT)
No problem. I actually just made an edit to addon that I wanted to make a while ago :P might be putting some work on addon information in the future now that I've lost my mediawiki virginity :P --MechaLynx (talk) 21:17, 30 April 2014 (CDT)
