AMSWiki Soft Launch

Submitted by Mozilla on Fri, 10/02/2020 - 13:50

Well, I've been working on this site for approximately the last 5 months.  Most of my efforts have been surrounding getting the site running the way I want it to, focusing on functionality rather than content.  I've been able to create some content over the last month, and although there is still so much more to do, the site is essentially open and ready for visitors.

Hence, welcome to the soft launch of AMSWiki!

As I played AMS I kept thinking to myself: Why isn't there a wiki for this game?!?!?  There is so much to know, so much complexity on this game, and there is so much knowledge out there in the player community, I found it incredible that someone hadn't gathered it together for everyone to see and use.  Sure, there are a few wikis out there (many of them are linked on the External Links page), but as far as I could tell all of them are outdated and abandoned.  None of them have updated information, and new aspects of this game are added pretty much every week by Volcano Games.  My conclusion was that someone needed to create a community for this game, and I decided I would be that person.

I've been playing AMS for just over a year.  I'm certainly not an expert, but I do have quite a bit of knowledge about the game.  That said, I'm hoping that we, as a player community, can work together to gather information and make it available for others.  I've fashioned this site as a wiki, and I'm opening comments on every page such that people who come here can suggest, correct, and improve upon the information that I've started with.  If I've got something wrong, let me know.  I'm open to constructive criticism.  If I'm missing something that you know, submit it to me.  I'll update the site with your information.  There are things that I know that you don't, and there are things that you know that I don't.  The goal of this site will be to get all of that together in one place for the benefit of everyone.

I do want content here to be backed up by experiments, data, and actual knowledge, rather than guesses or conjecture, so please try to present data to back up your facts as much as possible.  If you have a screen shot, include it.  Please be aware that everything you post here will be visible by all visitors, so cleanse your posts from personal information (player names, fields, corps names, etc...) as you wish.

There is so much I want to do here.  My first efforts were to create a Beginner's Walkthrough, and to set up initial information for Officers.  I also got the Forums up and running, as I'm hoping lots of information will be shared there.  I'm particularly proud of the full Table of Officers, which can be filtered and searched for a substantial amount of information.  I plan to add more content there, hopefully more details about their battlefield and stage skills.  I'll also be adding more detailed information about Special Operations, Buildings, Research, Planes, and Battle.  Let me know if there's something you'd like to see in the comments below.  Go ahead and ask questions too.

As I said, I'm hoping to create a community here - some place where players can come to get information that they need, and share with others.  I hope it helps you in some way!
