RevamPro: Categorization I (April 12, 2016)

Rather than contain this in the Wikia board, this will be in Announcements, and highlighted, to help with a more permanent spot with all categories being used, and to help encourage more visitors to help out.

What is this?

For the sake of naming things to name things, I'm dubbing major revamp projects that are to help make the wikia more professional, and organized, as RevamPro. RevamPro will serve as a general guideline for those who are unsure of what to edit, and as a focus, or target objective.

Current focus?

The focus for this first RevamPro is to help set up a standard for categorizing pages, and assign the proper item types to each item-based article. It is not a complete overhaul, as more categories are likely to appear for use, but sets up a basic foundation for every page, and will then further help any future organizational projects, or mass edits.

Application to item types?

When the Context Menu was added, items were assigned to an item type based off some data near the top of a .dat file. Articles for items should have the item classified as it is in-game.

For Ranged Weapons, we will still also use the secondary type. As an example, the Kryzkarek would be a Ranged Weapon (Handgun) in the Type variable of an infobox.

Ranged Weapons contain their secondary "type" in the item's description. However, the Unturned Bunker Wiki generalizes a few of these together, for simplification.

In Unturned 3, there are Construction Tools, Pistols, Revolvers, Cannons, Carbines, Assault Rifles, Rifles, Target Shooting Rifles, Battle Rifles, Hunting Rifles, Sharpshooter Rifles, Sniper Rifles, Machine Guns, Shotguns, Bows, Crossbows, Railguns, and Rocket Launchers.

This wikia instead uses the following categories:

  • Handguns, a compound of Pistols, Revolvers, and Cannons.
  • Carbines
  • Assault Rifles
  • Rifles, a compound of Rifles, Target Shooting Rifles, Hunting Rifles, and Battle Rifles.
  • Sharpshooter Rifles
  • Sniper Rifles
  • Shotguns
  • Machine Guns
  • Bows, a compound of Bows and Crossbows.
  • Miscellaneous, a compound of Railguns, Rocket Launchers, and Construction Tools.
