New User - Fatboy Edit[edit source]

Hi there, greetings from germany. A wonderful wiki, my start page indeed. Added two tips to the fatboy article. I'll try to improve as much as i can but due to my non-perfect english it's difficult sometimes. Shadow Stormbringer 10:51 22 April 2009 (GTM +1)

edit on Veteran status[edit source]

Hey, your updating of the veteran status page gives some new information about FA, but now everything I wrote about 'normal' SupCom is missing. I think some guys, who don't have FA (like me), would appreciate they could also find the old things on the page. So I recommand two sections, one for SupCom veteran status and one for FA. --Aeonamber 12:08, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Sorry about that. I'll try to fix it, but in the old supcom, veterancy really isn't that notable, or defined by any standard rules, so there is not so much to say about it...Happypal 13:25, 13 May 2008 (UTC)

Hey[edit source]

How are you doing. Good job in creating so many things. Btw do you need any of my help?. Currently i don't have supcom with me. I also see that you in wikipedia. I have same account. --SkyWalker 13:54, 4 June 2008 (UTC)

Not a problem. I shall do whatever i can to help. I need to ask you this do you have access to Common.CSS?. The tables are not getting rendered properly. Btw i can help you with Gundam Template. --SkyWalker 05:26, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
See this [1]. The table is not rendered properly and see this [2]. The table on that site is rendered properly. --SkyWalker 06:28, 5 June 2008 (UTC)
Thanks. --SkyWalker 07:05, 5 June 2008 (UTC)

Re: Contributions/Today's Article[edit source]

Good idea. Do you have Supcom with you?. --SkyWalker 06:47, 7 June 2008 (UTC)

Good. Can you take pictures of all the units in Supcom and if you have FA that would be good too. --SkyWalker 09:22, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

There is plenty of work to do then. What is your sys config?. DO you have FA too?. --SkyWalker 13:03, 8 June 2008 (UTC)

Multiple Categories[edit source]

I see you're creating categories like Category:Aeon structures. This is essentially a combination of Category:Aeon units and Category:Structures. With MediaWiki, combinations like this are unnecessary because it has facilities for combining categories already, such as DynamicPageList. For instance, here's how you would find a list of all Aeon structures:

category=Aeon units

Currently this doesn't list any units because you've moved units out of Category:Structures, but if you moved them back you'd see all Aeon structures. --TaviRider 09:54, 12 June 2008 (UTC)

Quantum Gateway edits[edit source]

Hey Happypal, I think something went wrong with some of your edits. See [this] change to Cybran T3 Quantum Gateway article. First of all, you seem to have accidentally removed the body of the article. But secondly, you're adding categories that were already there. I just wanted to make sure you were aware that the templates involved were adding some of the obvious categories, like faction and tech level. The same thing happened to the other factions' Quantum Gateway articles. --TaviRider 13:52, 19 June 2008 (UTC)

Hello[edit source]

Happypal I just wanted to say "thank you" for the nice greeting. I'd also like to contact you via ICQ but I can't find your number. Perhaps you can add me so we can chat a little? It would also help me to organize my to-do list. (and I really dislike spamming all the discussion sites) My ICQ number is censored.

Turok 11:15, 21 June 2008 (UTC)

I have to say "Thank you", too. Thanks for the nice hello. mfg, Eccci

HappypalImporter and TaviRiderImporter[edit source]

How active is your community? You may want to consider giving these accounts bot flags in order to hide these edits from recentchanges unless users view it that way. If community consensus is reached, staff can grant them bot flags to have their edits/uploads/imports/etc hidden from recentchanges by default, so that you can keep track of whats really going on in your community. Cheers. :) --Charitwo 08:55, 23 June 2008 (UTC)

Aeon Illuminate Characters list not complete?[edit source]

I noticed that there is no mention of Evaluator Kael in the Seraphim or Aeon character entries, but she does play a role in Forged Alliance. Why is she not in any article here? --BlueGalactic 07:47, 8 August 2008 (UTC)

Trouble adding new images[edit source]

I am having trouble adding new images to wikia's image gallery. I am trying to add an image for Avatar-of-War Marxon, but I get nothing.

Here's what I did: on the List of Aeon characters article, I clicked Add Images. Then, on the Upload section, I clicked Browse, chose "Avatar-Of-War Jaran Marxon.png" from my hard drive, clicked Upload, chose Left alignment in the Layout section, wrote "Avatar-of-War Marxon" in the Caption box, then clicked Insert File. I get a message at the bottom of the window that says "Error on page."

How do I add new images to the gallery? --BlueGalactic 07:55 AM, 10 August 2008 (UTC)

It could be it's just a webpage messaging corruption, that interrupted your upload, but I'll try to explain anyways.
It's in two seperate phases:
  • The Upload Phase
    You click on upload image, select your file, and remember to keep your extension, if you are also renaming it.
  • Insert the image to the article
    Just insert this: [[Image:Avatar-Of-War Jaran Marxon.png|float|left]]
And that's just about it. If that doesn't work, I'll need more details on the error.

the new unitnav boxes[edit source]

Honestly, i like the other ones better. Those were much more compact,and seemed just as nice. Perhaps we could stay with those? --RogueCommanderIX 05:03, 27 August 2008 (UTC)

Wow, Great work[edit source]

Looks great, i plan to start designing with thoes... Seraphim20Dark.pngCorhen talkCybran20Dark.png 19:32, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Article Deletion[edit source]

There is no need to delete the Cybran syealth attack strategy. I just overhauled it today so hopefully it is a much better, and much more usefull (as well as much easier to read). If there are other articles that you feel need an overhaul I'd be glad to help out. Also I'll continue to reduce the number of wanted articles as long as I know something about it. -Firestorm

:p[edit source]

Yea, that looks better. I made sure not to change the layout at all, and just add the link. (I didn't evan change the incorrect spelling!)

Modding section of supcom wiki[edit source]

Hey, I'm Neruz from the gpg forums, and I was wondering, would it be possible to add the <source> tag to this wiki? I'd like to add some modding information, but the lua sources would look horrible without syntax highlighting =/

Thanks,--Marceie 19:28, 17 January 2009 (UTC)

Sure, I'll get right on it. You might have to wait till Tuesday though, as I will probably require the help/intervention from the good people of wikia who have more privileges/knowledge than me. happypal (Talk) 22:46, 17 January 2009 (UTC)
Should be done, might have to wait a few days for it to activate though.

Thanks for the welcome[edit source]

I just briefly saw and edited the mixed arms page but was short on time.

I'd like to thank you for your warm welcome,and I plan to contribute more to the SupCom wiki.

Signatures?[edit source]

is there any reason that this wiki dosnt support signautures. when ever i use the defult settings, i get

Thanks for any help, Template:Signatures/Corhen 06:02, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Test Signing (happypal)... Seraphim20Dark.pngCorhen talkCybran20Dark.png 09:01, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
Seems fine to me... Why did you use Nosubst? you can use either {{SUBST:Signatures/Corhen}} or {{Signatures/Corhen}} in your sig, and you will get the same end result: Your signature, either substituted, or linked. To have wikia insert your signature automatically, just set your "Nickname" in preferences as {{SUBST:Signatures/Corhen}}, and things should work fine.
What have you been doing until now, and what are you trying to do exactly? I'm sorry I can't help you more, but I don't have much to work with here.
i must have been using the wrong command, i put in what you said, and it works! Seraphim20Dark.pngCorhen talkCybran20Dark.png 17:47, 19 March 2009 (UTC)
No prob ;) happypal (Talk) 18:13, 19 March 2009 (UTC)

Cybran Weaponry page[edit source]

The name of the page is "Cyran" Weaponry. How do you change that?

Sandbox[edit source]

Is there a possibility to create and edit page (for example User:Satan_CZ/Sandbox) without being displayed in Recent changes ? I want to experiment with Userboxes and if it is displayed there it will be filled by those experiments. --Satan 19:26, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

You can use previews to make a lot of test edits without spamming the recent changes, although this doesn't work with changes to templates. You can also try out your edits on a test wiki, such as the community test wiki that Wikia runs. --TaviRider 20:29, 22 March 2009 (UTC)
Thanks. --Satan 20:33, 22 March 2009 (UTC)

Some wrong build icons[edit source]

I found some more wrong build icons. Every air factory background is wrong. In game there is air, not grass.

UAB0102 build btn.png UAB0202 build btn.png UAB0302 build btn.png UEB0102 build btn.png UEB0202 build btn.png UEB0302 build btn.png URB0102 build btn.png URB0202 build btn.png URB0302 build btn.png XSB0102 build btn.png XSB0202 build btn.png XSB0302 build btn.png

I checked every build icon at wiki and they should be all right now. --Satan 12:52, 29 March 2009 (UTC)

I would never have caught that myself! Anyways, I'll have to rebuild them so it might take 1 or 2 days, since I'm kinda busy at work :D Anyways, Thanks as always happypal (Talk) 07:31, 30 March 2009 (UTC)
Hum, I seem to have forgotten about this, I'll try to fix it. happypal (Talk) 16:47, 6 April 2009 (UTC)
Aeon T1 is still wrong. It looks like T2. And UEF T2 looks like T1. --Satan 20:13, 7 April 2009 (UTC)
My bad, something wrong happened during file manipulations. happypal (Talk) 20:26, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

News?[edit source]

I noticed (several times recently) that the front page proudly claims "626 articles since march 2007". Maybe i'm understanding this wrong, but isn't that a bit out of date? Also, is it that there is no news of note or is the front page just is lacking an update?

Actually, i can answear this. if you click on the link, it brings you to a page that auto updates with the information. While there is "6,202 total pages" there is only 626 legitimate content pages.
The Diffination of a "Content page" is :
   * main namespace pages
   * must include one internal link
   * may be short or long pages
   * may be orphaned
Hope that helps
Seraphim20Dark.pngCorhen talkCybran20Dark.png 02:04, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Thanks! i just think that the "since march 2007" seems a bit off. --RogueCommanderIX 06:16, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Nope, that's the right date. That's when FngKestrel and I co-founded this wiki, shortly after the launch of the game. --TaviRider 06:39, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Besides, I don't know about you, but I think 626 pages is something to be proud of. happypal (Talk) 07:46, 8 April 2009 (UTC)
Yeah it is... but the problem (to me at least) is it seems like the statistics are out of date (from march 2007 not april 2009). If it could be made clear that that is the latest set of "useful" articles then it would be better. --RogueCommanderIX 02:02, 9 April 2009 (UTC)
I think I see what you mean (although it seems clear to me). I can't find a better wording for this. If you can find a clear and concise phrase to replace it, go ahead :) happypal (Talk) 07:19, 9 April 2009 (UTC)

Yoz![edit source]

Happypal, you rock. Thanks for all the contibs both here and on the Demigod wiki! With the release today, I hope you don't get overwhelmed, or feel like you are the sole contributor on Demigod. Have you guys posted in the official forums yet? The gaming team will be hanging out for the next couple of days on the wiki, and we're here if you have any questions. Cheers -- Doug (talk) 00:28, 15 April 2009 (UTC)

Recent Changes[edit source]

I noticed that the past several days, the recent changes are only showing todays changes.

Amphibious unit sections[edit source]

I would just like to point out in unit by catergory, Amphibious and Hover are not the same,yet there are hover units in the amphibious catergory and there is no hover. Hover units tend to be immune to torpedos (Aurora, Yenzyne, etc.) while amphibious units are not (Megalith, Othuum, etc). Not all amphibous/hover units are listed either. Just wanted to point that out.

- Keldabe

I didn't noticed. Thanks. --Satan 15:39, 27 April 2009 (UTC)

Hello[edit source]

Hello back-wait...oh, so that's where I recognize you from...[3]. :) Resident Mario 23:06, 30 April 2009 (UTC)

Tech 1/2/3/4 Unit Pages[edit source]

There happens to be a page for land/sea/air respectively for T2 units but not T1, T3, or T4. Just wondering if the T2 pages should be removed or respective pages for the other tech levels. - Keldabe

P.S. There are no submarine, submarine hunter, or strategic missile submarine pages either. Just wondering if someone could make these. Edit: There are no gunship, T2 air transport, fighter/bomber, light/medium tank, light mobile artillery, heavy tank, amphibious tank, mobile defense, or mobile missile launcher pages either. Listing them might get someone to make them? The incomplete unit pages for the unitboxes just seems to be wrong.

These pages don't exist because no-one took the time to write them, or because there is not much of interest to say. You can try looking at Unit types to see how you can help.
PS. There is no "tech 4". That is a term that doesn't exist.
Happypal 15:39, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
He means experimental... --RogueCommanderIX 03:41, 21 May 2009 (UTC)

where are the original supreme commander maps?[edit source]

I checked and only found forged alliance maps where is the original? Ericwyesk 11:37, 18 June 2009 (UTC)

Hi, sorry for the late reply. They aren't here because nobody ever got around to doing them. I extracted images for all the multyplayers maps, and manually extracted the singleplayer ones for FA, and overlayed some Commander Icons. I didn't do it for normal SupCom though, as the process was more complicated (the maps are re-used for several missions depending on your faction). So to answer your question, the maps are not here, sorry. Happypal 12:16, 24 June 2009 (UTC)

Hello...[edit source]

...whoa, that's a pretty fast greeting for a non-cybernetically enhanced human. I'm just passing through, though. But thanks anyway.

Ah, so you are "cybernetically enhanced"...

Spam protection filter[edit source]

Trying to edit Four Leaf Clover but I keep getting a 'Spam protection filter' error message, even on the discussion page. Laexio 04:36, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Sorry, that was actually my mistake. Everything should be OK now. If you have any problems at ALL, please tell me on my talk page. Sorry for the inconvenience. Joey (talk) 05:05, January 10, 2010 (UTC)

Camel Active?[edit source]

Whoever made this page ip adress should be blocked (don't know if thats possible), and secondly, of course, it should be deleted

Thanks, Daniel 14:18, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

Done. Thanks for pointing it out. ----TaviRider 14:55, June 27, 2010 (UTC)

***[edit source]

Some one just made this page***. He said this twice Не ну понятно, я и не спорю. It is Russian and translates to "not well understood, and I do not dispute." I posted back. I think you should delete page. Daniel 14:37, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

It's already been taken care of. Thanks for pointing it out. ----TaviRider 16:44, July 28, 2010 (UTC)

IRC[edit source]

Hey, So I noticed this wiki doesn't have a web chat applet or anything like that - which is rather strange for a wiki this big, I could do one for you free of charge if you like xD

Just a nice chatbox for everyone to join and chat on, can add admins and all that so yeah.


Unit DB update[edit source]


I'm a SupCom player too, and I think we should update the units database to the current FAF version. As it's major change (we'ld endorse FAF as the canon way to play FA, instead of the Steam version), I think I need your agreement.

Note: I'm the admin of one of the biggest Steam group, and FA with Steam is pretty much dead.

Maybe their is way to have a dual version with templates.

Also, i'ld gladly appreciate some tips about how the meta TEmplate works for this wiki.


Sanakan0 03:31, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

  • Update: I don't know if you are still active/wish to be. But assuming this wikia is updated with FAF unit DB, having a modified import script would be very handy! We'ld use this unitDB. Can you contact me if you can modify your script, or give me the source + some instructions about how to run it? Thx!
Sanakan0 06:36, May 7, 2012 (UTC)

Hello, I see you are very active in the community and I would appreciate your feedback.

I have an idea for supcom mod that allows for a cinematic experience of either observed or playback games. The idea being moving the camera around in game, creating an almost movie like experience of supcom battles.


Do you believe the supcom API is capable of supporting this?

Am I recreating the wheel, has someone already done this?

Cheers, 05:21, November 11, 2012 (UTC)Lyle

Hey man, I have been using this wiki for a while, when gyle spoke about some people saying that it wasn't updated, that were told to change it, since it's a wiki. I was looking at the numbers of different units (mostly experimentals) and realised they are not really up to date. Any way we can fix this? I'd gladly update the numbers myself if it was just that, but... well, you see the problem

Cheers! 11:15, April 29, 2015 (UTC)

Hey dude. I was wondering, should we update all the unit info to the forged alliance forever unit stats? Because as of now, the units stats are incorrect. Btw, can you help me update the nomands page. There is a whole new faction and nothing covering it. Thanks--UEFunite (talk) 02:43, February 1, 2017 (UTC)
