The look of the page was modified before and the theme I used is not compatible with the new version. I wanted to get it up first and I am redoing the look :)

Support / Re: Wiki Images Busted - Error creating thumbnail
« on: September 09, 2014, 02:04:12 PM »
Not sure if this is the right place to raise the issue, but all the images on the wiki seem to be busted at the moment.

All images are replaced with the annoying text: "Error creating thumbnail: Unable to save thumbnail to destination"

Do one of you on here run the wiki?

If so, there may be some info on how to fix the issue here:

Also, I tried to add a screenshot here (only 14k), but got this error when posting: "The upload folder is full. Please try a smaller file and/or contact an administrator."

Sorry this was fixed today. Had to do a rushed move one night and left a variable incorrect :)

I'm hoping this is a silly question, but I'm hoping the update will fix the "thumbnail" issue described so well here?

Yes it should be fixed as of now. Please test it and let me know if you still see the error.

Hey all,

I am putting the wiki @ into readonly mode for the next few hours as I do some maintenance. I will be updating it to the latest stable version, cleaning up translations (and hopefully making it easier to translate going into the future), and some other tweaks.

I will update on here when it is completed

Took longer than expected however it is backup with almost all functionality. Need to work on some of the spam catching plugins as well as some other minor things still. Let me know if any issues are seen

Yea the guy who made it is a pain in the a**. Ok more like I got busy with work for the last year (yay for corporate buy outs) and working 60-80hrs a week has not left me with much free time. I will try and see if I cannot fix issues in the upcoming few days.

Hey all,
Just a quick heads up,'s DNS provider (namecheap) is currently under attack and is causing DNS to not resolve. I will update this once they get the attack mitigated.

I will post my opinion on this in regards to the first post. I apologize if I am rehashing something someone else said, but hey, it happens :)

I have over 300hrs in game in steam, I probably had that many if not more prior to it being on steam. I would be more active but I started a new job about a year back and am now a Director in a company and for some odd reason they expect me to work :-/

The changes lately (last few months) have been more cleanups / optimizations / re factoring as opposed to content addition. This in my opinion was planned that way for a very specific reason, to get into beta. Usually in programs (I have programmed for about 10 years now, so I have a little back ground in it... just not gamedev) the stages are the following:

1) Prototype / POC - Get something working that can used to prove a concept works.
2) Alpha  - Create the framework / engine and get a small amount of content in. Usually this stage would have the basics to work in however the underlying pieces all are in a state of freeze before beta. For example the structure of the engine functions should not change.
3) Beta - Content / Play balance / Polishing. This is where you usually get your pre-release testers in so you see content added all the time.
4) Release and beyond - Well it's done... duh

That being said many people here joined in the Alpha stage instead of the normal Beta stage. To get to the Beta stage, you want the freeze on the engine so that if you change say a function for building a floor, you only have to change 5 tiles that use said function instead of the 50 you may have at release.

The fact that Bob has kept a 1 week during alpha / 2 week during beta release schedule is pretty amazing if you look at almost any other game out there. This is a game that takes time to make not only because of coding, but you have a lot to think about every time you add an item to balance the world.

From what I have read, there are great things coming and if there is a content patch a quarter I think that 80% of the people out there will be extremely happy.

You were unlucky. The best way to handle this is to wall it back off until you have more higher level / better equipped soldiers to deal with them and make sure to mine around them.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but there seems to be a problem when registering for the wiki as a new user. Just figured I would let you know :D

I am heading to bed, internet has been shotty at best tonight, but what is the issue you are having? Any errors?

Also so you know OpenID works well (had someone report earlier it worked for them at least)
