SCS Modding Wiki Feedback Thread

#1 Post by Smarty » 10 Mar 2017 00:30

Considering the Modding Wiki has been open for a little over a year, I'm kind of surprised a thread like this doesn't exist yet (unless I just suck at searching). I'm also under the impression that the Wiki might be kind of under-utilized. I think it would be valuable to get some feedback on people's experiences and opinions on it.

Some examples of useful feedback:
  • Do you use the wiki?
  • Is it easy to find what you're looking for?
  • Were you looking for something specific and couldn't find it?
  • Is there an article you think could be better-written or better-organized?
  • Is there an article you think is well-written or well-organized?
  • What do you think of the existing tutorials? Have you gotten lost somewhere?
  • Is there a specific kind of tutorial you would like to see?
  • Have you come across an error? Omission? Broken link?
  • Is something too technical?
  • ...Not technical enough? :geek:
Hopefully this results in some constructive feedback. I think that the Wiki is a great initiative and has a lot of potential — It would be awesome to see it reach that potential.

IMO the data in the modding guides should also be in the wiki (and updated when required). At the moment if you want to edit (for example) an engine file, you need to open each of the modding guide updates to hopefully find what you need. What would be awesome is if the wiki definitions (documentation/engine/game data) covered at least initially the commonly edited sii files like engine, transmission, game data, etc and explained what does what.

To me, while somewhat helpful in some ways, the wiki feels incomplete.

missing all infos about traffic,/rules, behavior, all possible settings/files, explanations what the commands do exactly...etc

also infos about changes. for example: in 1.27 the AIs block now again driveways. can´t find this info in any changelog? are there more stuff?

would be nice. ;)

Natvander: I think you may like some upcoming articles. ;)

RudiRaser: Traffic stuff isn't exactly my wheelhouse, but I agree it would be good to have some documentation on that. Maybe somebody can convince some of the ProMods guys, piva, etc to become contributors. :P
