    Populating act categories

    I didn't have time today, but if someone gets bored enough/motivated, they could feel free to populate the act categories with at least the areas we have entries for. IE, I just put Bastion's Keep into act III, archives of Zoltun Kulle into Act II, etc.

    Re: Populating act categories

    Absolutely but please don't change the structure of it - categorisation either as I've just finished setting them all up over the weekend and they are uniform.

    If there is a category by the same name that is what gets categorised if they don't yet warrant a category (and may never) such as Bastions Keep then they have been categorised.

    I haven't done the navigation box yet.

    Re: Populating act categories

    Then what is the purpose of the Act categories?

    /confuzzled

    You've put a massive amount of work into this and I want to help, but I don't want to cause more work.

    Re: Populating act categories

    Yes, Act Categories are good.

    I've got pages for each region (in my written folder here) but I'll write some here as it may be easier that sending you to different pages.

    This isn't written in stone but it's what I felt was the best way to go when I got all the elements onto paper.

    Top tier C: Sanctuary C: Regions

    C: Aranoch (C:Sanctuary \ C:Regions)

    Aranoch (C:Aranoch)

    Canyon of the Magi (C:Sanctuary \ C: Aranoch \ C: Zones \ C: Act II)

    C: Lut Gholein (C:Sanctuary \ C: Aranoch \ C: Act II \ C: Settlements)

    Lut Gholein (C:Lut Gholein)

    Tomb of Tal Rasha (C:Sanctuary \ C:Aranoch \ C: Act II \ C: Dungeons)

    ==================

    So if there is a Page of the same name as a Category (ie. C: Lut Gholein & Lut Gholein) that page goes into its namesake Category and the Category is what goes into the other categories.

    Some pages may need a category later it depends if they feature in Diablo 3. So for example Canyon of the Magi is just a page at the moment, if it's in the game then we'd make it a category so we can had pages Canyon of the Magi Quests - MoBs. Right now, I wasn't sure so I left it as a page.


    Do we know what act Dreadlands is? I haven't assigned any acts for that.

    Re: Populating act categories

    That is...extremely logical.

    Dreadlands. Hm. If there were a fit for it in D3, then I would have to say it would be Act III. Sounds like a continuation of LoD, perhaps something to do with the crater.

    Sounds painful.

    So, what to do about spoilers in these navboxes, then? I think you know where the last act takes place?
    In addition, I'm looking over the NPC/bosses navbox and I hesitated to put the name of the Act I boss on there, so I didn't, because...spoilers. What do you think?

    Re: Populating act categories

    Maybe one page at this point that just lays out all the plot spoilers and monster names and such. Simple and quick; not a bunch of images and such. with big *** spoiler warnings on top of it.

    And then other pages can just link to it, as needed.

    It's obviously a temporary measure, just a month or two (or six) until the game is released.

    Re: Populating act categories

    I have been thinking about adding the areas from the beta (Overlook Road, Old Tristram Road, Weeping Hollow...) but I'm uncertain on how to categorize them.

    Re: Populating act categories

    Hey Brokenstorm,

    You can see how I've categorised things so far - take this one region.

    http://www.diablowiki.net/Category:Khanduras

    I'm simplified things (still a few things left to nuke) because there were just too many tangents that I think would confuse someone new thinking of helping out. We can always sub-categorise further later on down the road.

    I suppose Weeping Hollow would be like Festering Woods of Fields of Misery - both of those I made cats for also

    http://www.diablowiki.net/Category:Festering_Woods
    http://www.diablowiki.net/Category:Fields_of_Misery

    Because they had a map and a page of images.

    So you could repeat that set up for Weeping Hollow. I imagine Overlook Road and Old Tristram Road would just be a page both in cats

    c:sanctuary
    c:chanduras
    c:act I

    They'd not go in c:settlements or c:structures like say Rogue Monastery or Kingsport which are also just pages with not cat of the same name.

    What do you think to that?

    ================

    Navigation

    There are a couple navigation boxes on the go right now. I'm going to rework one and dump the other. I can't be doing with subtly different nav boxes - it's just a recipe for confusion.
