(updated to v6.0!) No Man's Sky - My wiki creating script!! for those who do that thing.. :)

Updated: even more formatting updates to make tables mobile friendly, other edits per gamepedia admins/requests.  v6.0 8/6/17

So, yea, I'm still playing No Man's Sky and honestly am not ashamed of it.  I love this game and documenting things in it.  In June 2017, I restarted my gamesave so I could make my way to the Galactic Hub ( more info here: https://www.reddit.com/r/NMSGalacticHub/) and after about 350 hyper drive jumps, I arrived and found a system to call home and to setup a nice NipNip farm on.

After exploring my home planet and system for a while, I decided to contribute to the Hub community and add my system and base to the Wiki.  Initially this wasn't as easy as it seemed it would be. I had to find a template and then edit it with my info and then upload all of the images.  The same was true for my base.  Finally after a week or so of exploring, documenting info about my systems, I bit the bullet and finally created a Gamepedia - No Man's Sky Wiki account and setup my wiki pages.

My home system is here:

My base wiki page is here, I even created my own personal Lore around it:

A system I trade my NipNip and AP at to make 10million units a trip w/my hauler:

So to address this, I decided to take my geek KungFu scripting and using a very basic cmdline script, created a template generating script: seamonkey420's NMSTemplateMaker version 4.0!


Version History
 (all .cmd files are available for download and remarks added to script to explain how it works)

  • This is just version 1.0 and i hope to add in a planet and ship template option and also a multitool one later this month.
  • Updated version 2.0: added Planet template (see preview below, be sure to download v2 file)
  • Updated version 3.0: added Ship template (see preview below, be sure to download v3 file)
  • Updated version 4.0 (7/21/17) reworked advanced tables in the star system template for planets in system; much more readable on mobile devices and easier to edit on wiki source!
  • Updated version 5.0 (7/23/17) reworked flora and fauna tables in planet template to be friendlier looking on mobile browsers. probably last update for a while unless requests/bugs in script are found. :)
  • NOTE: v6.0 is up (8/6/17)!  Very minor updates to tables based on some feedback from gamepedia admins on some changes. Close as I can get to making mobile browser friendly for now. Enjoy!
