  • I noticed that someone had questions about how the Orchid works, I did edit the page a little, but I have a video that explains how it works here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOVgSJQ7mHo

    Though I'm not really sure how or if I should put a reference on the page

  • The Deus Ex universe site (https://www.deusex.com/) is no longer online. Therefore, the timeline is gone. Do you think we should host a copy of the official timeline on this wiki to preserve a copy of the original source? Additionally, while the current timeline article has much of the official timeline, it is not a complete transcript of the official timeline because some of the wording isn't the same, and the article lacks the headings of the official timeline.

    The official timeline is still available at Feral Interactive's page ( http://www.feralinteractive.com/en/games/deusexmd/timeline/ ) - maybe someone ought to take a copy before it gets taken down.

  • Hi Sugarhoney,

    Could you rename Category:EBooks to "Deus Ex: Human Revolution - eBooks". I am not sure if there is a way to do so, but just wanted to check. This is an old category made when DXHR was the first game to include anything called eBooks. Recently, I've relocated all the DXTF eBooks out of that category.

    Also, the categories for Breach right now simply state "Breach." Do you think we should restyle "Breach" to "Deus Ex: Mankind Divided - Breach" throughout this wiki, wherever it is mentioned?

  • I do not think I have the ability to delete a file, but there are two photos I accidently uploaded while editting a page.

    https://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/File:DeusEx_2018-11-23_11-01-02-16.png


    https://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/File:DeusEx_2018-11-23_11-01-26-38.png

    These were not the intended files to be used for the page, and I misclicked them when attempting to apply the desired photos to a gallery.

  • Hi Sugarhoney,

    Many gallery images have transprancy. For example, the last four images in the gallery of https://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Richard are transparent, and the background color of the gallery thumbnail box is gold.

    However, the gold background color doesn't look too great for most images in the gallery. I think it would look much better if the background is set to a dark gray that's close to black.

    • I'd imagine that the new gallery style would be difficult to work with for game series that have a lot of 90s-era sprites in galleries. Fortunately, I don't think this wiki has that problem.

      On the other hand, the bloated size of 3 or fewer images could pose some issues to existing articles. Another example is https://deusex.wikia.com/wiki/Kazatel?gallery=new#Gallery where the image at the bottom has a bloated size.

    • Kazatel's isn't too bad actually. I haven't figured out the "ideal" min. size, but if an image is large enough, the new gallery system is ok with it (basically it takes a center part of the image in that case and uses it as a thumbnail without stretching it out). It's smaller images (like sprites) that will be problematic.

  • You recently deleted an image added to the Sarif Industries Headquarters page left by the user CriminalElements due to the suspicion the concept art that was added was unsourced or modified. There was a source citation in the caption. The image of Pritchard's office with the Bender figurine is located on Page 359 of the Deus Ex Human Revolution Collector's Edition Guidebook. For more clarification I found for you a video of someone flipping through the pages of the book. At the 1:28 timestamp you'll see the the image of Pritchard's Office with the Bender Figurine in the top right on page 359. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=88&v=YXY4YC5NHMI

    This was the original concept art of his office, but the bender figurine was most likely removed in later versions due to a copyright concern.

    • Hi Rotharion Anaera,

      First of all, thanks for your edits and new pages! This is really appreciated.

      To clarify the image situation - I deleted the concept uploaded by CriminalElements because we had a better-quality version of the Tech Lab concept at File:Pritchard's office concept.jpg, which was already in the gallery. The "unknown source" comment referred to other images (File:SarifIndustries02.png and a couple of others). I should have clarified that in the edit summary, sorry about the confusion.

      However, I did not notice the Bender figurine initially. Thanks for bringing attention to that. I cannot identify the source of the non-Bender version that we had, but the Bender version can be found on the concept artist's site at http://gryphart.com/deus-ex-human-revolution so it does seem to be the original version. With this in mind I've changed File:Pritchard's office concept.jpg to the Bender version.

      Hope this clarifies the things.

    • Yes, this does clarify things, thank you for the prompt response. I've informed CriminalElements about the change.

  • Hi Sugarhoney,

    Aeratus created a post on the forum, that you may have noticed, relating to article naming conventions. We also discussed making some changes to the Manual of Style to help create consistency across the wiki, but before making any changes, I wanted to know what you thought of the proposed changes. The main ones are:

    • Character article names should be the characters most commonly used name, even if this isn't their real name.
    • Organization articles should include "Background" and "Activities" (or similar) as subsections of a parent "History" section.
    • On character articles, player-influenced interactions with that character should be added to a section titled "Interactions", as opposed to "Mission appearances" as is currently used on some articles.
