The AOH Heroes 6 Wiki Thread

As the saying goes - better late than never - and Age of Heroes now has its Heroes 6 section. This Heroes 6 section is different from the previous game sections - it is a wiki that runs on the same software as Wikipedia.

The Heroes 6 Wiki is linked to Heroes Community - HC accounts are used to log in to the wiki, and login requirement is to have at least 5 posts on HC (the login is only required to edit or create pages).

The idea is to see if we can create a community information resource about the game which all players will benefit from. This way it will not be limited to few people's work, but the entire community can create it. Anyone can contribute as much or as little content as they wish, and to enhance and correct what has been done by others.

The main feature of the wiki right now are sortable creature lists which have been updated to patch 1.8 and you can even compare creatures across factions and tiers. Table headings are clickable for sorting and you can hover over special abilities for description.

A big credit goes to Miru, as without his work and perseverance this project would not have seen the light of day. Miru collected all the data for the creatures sections and a few more sections which we have not converted yet. And most importantly he kept going when everyone else lost motivation, and kept reminding me repeatedly to finish what we started. I needed that And seeing what he made motivated me to do my side of the work. So thanks Miru

You can access the wiki via the Info link next to Heroes 6 below the ad banner on top of any HC page, or via this link: AOH Heroes 6 Wiki.

The purpose of this thread will be:
* feedback for the wiki.
* working on content for the wiki.
* getting feedback for your material.
* planning what content to add next.
* anything else related.

So, let us know what you think, and feel free to log in and add some info. If you make a new page or section that you want to be linked in the main Wiki menu, let me or Miru know here.

Yeah, if the HC-integrated-wiki approach works out well it will be the natural choice to duplicate it for future game sections on AOH.

Looks neat to me, much easier to navigate and allows the community to participate more directly.

Still incomplete, so we should get that finished. Anyone up to the job of memorizing trivia and doing math? I can help with unit exp.

I have not been turned to undead yet

Filling out unit exp would be great. Also we're missing the neutral creatures page. If you need a blank creature table template or help with editing just let me know here.

I dislike the layout but I guess it can't be helped as it's wiki-based.
I'd very much like to see a heroes subsection eventually.

I can make a buildings template for you. Just give me a sample of the info you want to include - post data for a couple of buildings here - and I will make a table template for it and add a section to the wiki menu.

I think Miru decided against adding power of the creatures because it was not a useful number, and added a space for experience instead (it needs filling out). Miru, what was the reason again?

I just realized how long it will take to find all the creature exp values, since the level rate that you decide increases or decreases exp per creature.

Aren't the exp values (and the rest of stadistics) inside the .orc data files, just like it was on previous games (H5,H3)?

ok but let`s include the power for reference for mapmakers. You define creature guards by power values. I will post tomorrow about the buildings. Too late 2 am.

I didn't include power because I thought it was some useless estimation stat, I didn't know it mattered for the map editor. I wouldn't be surprised if exp is a function of power, in which case you could just replace that column.

Probably, but I don't have the tech know-how to access those. So maybe someone else might be better for this section... *Shrugs* I can get it done eventually. Heck, if six of us come together we can just send heroes at each other with one creature in our armies and get our calculations via death-match.

Sanctuary

coral priestess dwelling [real name]
4 wood 5 ore 0 crystals 1750 gold
allows you to recruit coral priestess [real description]

kappa dwelling [real name]
6 wood 2 ore 0 crystals 1750 gold
allows you to recruit kappas [real description]

town hall
5 wood 5 ore 0 crystals 2500 gold


and so on...

I have an idea : put checkboxes on the left and in the end you can see the total resources needed for the checked buildings.
