Apparently those nice omnipotent dev-types want some copyright free scenario's for OTTD that they can release with the game.
Hey, you! You with the scenario editor!
And all of yous with interest in maintaining the Wiki
Sleepie, T-Unit, Jupix and JameiLei have been collaborating to create a consistent Wiki database for OpenTTD scenarios. Here's what it would look like: List of player-made scenarios
As you can see, so far we have created merely a basic structure for listing the various scenarios in this thread and elsewhere. There is still a lot of work to be done, categorizing all the various listings etc.
However, now we need YOUR help. We are about to form a sort of a "Scenarios Team" at the wiki, a batch of like-minded people who would every once in a while take a look at the wikipage AND this thread and make corrections/additions/alterations where appropriate. So we are looking for people who would be willing to help us out. If you are interested in this, take a look at the Scenarios Team
page at the wiki. If you decide to join, do please drop us a note so we know who is in.
We also need the help of scenario authors: if you have listed a scenario here, we'd also like you to list it at the wiki page. You don't even need a wiki account for that, just surf at the List and do the following:
Take a screenshot showing the minimap of your scenario (preferably medium-size, in PNG). Example
Take a screenshot showing a detail you like about the scenario you are about to list. Again, preferably medium-size, and in PNG. Example
Name the above files logically and upload them to the wiki here.
Add the following code under the relevant categories:
|description=A few words about your scenario. Geography, different strategies, and so on.
|setting=[[Temperate]] / [[Sub-tropical]] / [[Sub-arctic]] / [[Toyland]]
|relief=Very Flat / Flat / Hilly / Mountainous / Mixed
|towns=No. of towns. Low/Normal/High
|industries=No. of industries. Low/Normal/High
|realworld=Is your scenario based on any real location? Where?
If you don't want to add it yourself - no problem, we can do it for you , but we need your permission. In that case please add a comment when posting new scenarios or contact one of the members of the scenario team for already published ones. Thank you.
By adding all the scenarios in this thread to the wikipages, we'll be making it a lot easier for newcomers to search and download new scenarios. By adding your scenarios, you'll be making a valuable contribution to the wiki.
Oh, and don't worry about making mistakes - we'll spot and fix them afterwards. The important thing right now is to get scenarios listed at the wikipages.
I hearby release my scenario into the public domain, so long as any and all credit for it is given to me.
Maybe the devs would like to make a comment on what they want/expect from these things.[/list]
