Cookbook of simple nodes (or few group of nodes)

Post#1 » 21 Sep 2018, 23:05

Thinking about this request: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=1624

Reflecting about the field of programming and system administration. For very simple but often requested tasks there exist "cookbooks" that are quite popular.

So instead of nagging a player with a long tutorial that may be too much, one could collect cookbook of formulas that everyone can see.

So a sort of campaign mode:
- a tab about "ready made nodes or small group of nodes"
- the tab has questions, like "how do I make a node that does X?" The questions at the start are defined by gfx.
- each question, when clicked, shows a list of submitted and approved solutions. Gfx defines the questions and approves the solutions (at least for the first iterations of the feature) and the players submit the solutions. After enough solutions collected gfx can even mark the question as "answered enough times".

Since now there are also comments available, such solutions can be highly informative.

Solutions can be seen by everyone (or they cost unlock points?) and may show also who is providing them with multiplayer rank/campaing rank.

Solution may, at a certain iteration, even be voted and therefore providing unlock points for the most helpful solution.

I was thinking about this to relieve gfx to the not so easy part to explain the many possibilities in the game. In this way the solutions are crowdsourced and there is not too much overhead like working on the wiki (the wiki is detached from the game).

Nice idea. Could be part of the wiki for starters.
