Talk:General Stores (TFTD)

Ok, I added the space for items in TFTD's general stores. The tables follow the list shown in Base Information --> Stores screen exactly, not the Sell screen so please don't go mucking around with the ordering! The item names are also what is found in the Stores screen. (I have no idea why some of the names differed from AQ's, perhaps he used the Sell screen names? Or a different version? Don't know. I'll have to research this).

As you guys may notice, I list all the entries, including the "garbage". Those items can only be added via hacking BASE.DAT. I believe the three entries under the Heavy Thermic Lance are the Aquanaut Corpses found in OBDATA.DAT. The 4 entries under the Xarquid Corpse are probably the Displacer corpse, the Coelacanth corpse and the male/female civilians. Not sure about those, but what else could they be? Every entry in OBDATA.DAT should have a corresponding entry in BASE.DAT. The "name" shown for the Aquanaut Corpse is a few lines worth of gobbledygook from one of the English.dat files, but even though the line is full I could still make out the space those items consumed in inventory (0). As a final check, leaving 100 of these items in your stores still shows 0 for inventory as well.

The last two entries both show up as "Gauss Cannon Ammo" in the "Stores" screen. The first instance is the ammo for the Coelacanth/Gauss, while the second entry is the ammo for the craft Gauss Cannon. We probably should make a note of this when the article is written. --Zombie 21:08, 14 September 2007 (PDT)

I used the names found around the wiki and in some of my notes. I've been known to use shorthand, so that's probably where the error came up. Arrow Quivershaft 21:15, 14 September 2007 (PDT)

I organized the page to be more useful, as for instance aquanaut corpses cannot be stored normally, most players would find that info redundant. --Tavisman 00:17, 9 December 2007 (PST)

Zombie explicitly asked higher on the talk page for this page to NOT be reordered. I am not sure what he thinks of this, however, so I won't revert it until we hear from him. Arrow Quivershaft 21:15, 20 December 2007 (PST)

Yes, the reason why I asked that the table not be mucked with is because there would'nt be a complete list of base stores around. While the "garbage" entries and ordering may not be all that beneficial to the novice, it is to the hacker/modder. BTW, this info wasn't intended for the novice either and for that reason was split into a different page Base Stores for Enemy Unknown. Wikifying links are fine, but I also ask that the name of the item isn't changed as well. Feel free to use a pipe to keep the name intact and route to the proper wiki page. --Zombie 19:20, 22 December 2007 (PST)
