Whew... I just added all the planets and most of the items... I probably made some mistakes though.

Nice job :D haven't seen any mistakes yet (except for missing links, but that is okay as those pages don't exist yet anyway).

Yeah, I did that intentionally because I didn't want to make the link go somewhere that would never be created (E.G., a link to Grimorn instead of Grimorn(planet))

Yeah but inserting links to new pages you can tell it the name, e.g. "Grimorn (Planet)". I guess it can be misleading having links to hypothetical pages, though =]

To make this thing more authenic...I suggest organizing the items in the tables sorted alphabetically...I added Salmeen in S section and reorganized A and B...

Joozey said

at 3:58 pm on Jun 1, 2008

Salmeen is all the way down... hmm :P
But it was supposed to happen this way. When it is finished (as far as that is possible) I'll run through the whole thing to check for dead links, A-Z sorting errors and stuff.
Doesn't mean noone needs to do this anymore ofcourse ^^.

I edited the AR-57 and AR-SRX definitions because the AR-57 can only destroy 8 bricks, and the AR-SRX can only destroy 23 bricks. The reason is: For the AR-57 missile to reach the center of the 3x3 square, the bottom-center brick has to be already destroyed. The AR-SRX can only destroy 23 bricks for a similar reason.

Also, in the Anti-Radar definition, I changed "destroy" to "damage" because they make you need to repair – not replace – your radar. ;-)
