  • Yo thanks for editing that page. I created it coz that article didnt exist. But i didnt know how to give links so thanks for setting that up.

  • Hey, I noticed you've been updating a lot of links to point to "U.S. Robot Command". For pages with multiple valid titles, it's generally best to set up a redirect page- this means you don't have to go around changing every link, and any future attempts to link to "USRC" would automatically go to the proper page. We already have a few of these set up, such as Olin redirecting to Olin Delverson.

  • Just wondering, why do you think Activities should be placed outside of Quests? Within the game's menu, Activities are a subset of Quests, so I can't see much of a reason to categorize them separately.

    • In the Collector's Edition Guide book, there are two separate chapterss for "Quests" and "Activities." The former has the main quests, side quests, and errands, and the latter chapter has the bandit camps, Tallnecks, corrupted zones, etc. I think it makes sense, too, like quests have a narrative but the activites don't. What do you think?

    • Personally, I'd say the game takes precedence over the guide. I'm not sure the "narrative" criteria really works either, since it's possible to create custom errands with no associated narratives, and several activities do have something of a narrative (e.g. Nil's bandit camps).

    • I think the fact that the activities are listed under quests within the game menu itself is probably more a result of the designers trying to make it more navigable rather than as a display of intention. They're split out into two separate categories on the "Game Progression" page, too, and not all listed under quests. That plus the book's organization makes me think "Activity" and "Quest" and two different things but all placed under "Quests" so they didn't have to add another page to the menu.

    • Again, I'm not sure I trust the book that much- Guerrilla helped with it, but it was ultimately written by people outside of Guerrilla.

      I guess my real complaint with that definition is that Activities and "Quests" share so many of the same qualities- they're both objective-based tasks in fixed locations of the game world, with sub-objectives and completion rewards. It seems silly to treat them as completely separate, and I don't like the idea of making up a different catch-all term like "Objectives" when the game is clearly already using "Quests" in that way.

      Also, as a last bit of evidence, when hovering over the map icon for an Activity, the option shown is "Activate quest".

  • So after seeing your changes to the Nil and Ranaman pages, I think we might also need an antagonist category to help distinguish between people Aloy fights and people that are aligned against her. There would be a lot of overlap but I feel that Ranaman would then fall under antogonist but not enemy while Nil could fall under enemy but not antagonist.

    • Follow up: we also don't actually fight Ahsis, Bahavas, HADES, and a couple other people.

    • Totally get what you're saying. I was planning to add the battle stats from the book for the enemies that it lists, and I figured we should have a category for those individuals that have specific battle stats because they may (or may not) battle Aloy. I thought "enemies" was the most appropriate way to signify that. What do you think?

    • Maybe 'opponents' is better for that cause I still think Nil shouldn't be considered an 'enemy' and then 'antogonist' or 'enemies' can include most of the opponents but also not combative enemies like ahsis, Bahavas, hades, etc.

  • Just wanted to point this out, since I noticed it in a couple of your recent edits: the game's proper title is Horizon Zero Dawn, with no colon.

  • That's what we're talking about! Much better! 👍

  • Hey, just wanted to let you know that when replacing an already existing image, you can actually replace the file directly. Just go to the image page and select replace under the edit menu. This also avoids filling up the wiki with unused pictures, and also applies the change to all pages using the replaced image.

    (Also, once again, thank you so much for your phenomenal work on the quest and character pages!)

    • Thank you so much for the kind words and the constructive feedback. I think I used the replace function on a few of the images that I updated, like on the page for Lorund, but I may not have used the same method for my recent updates on Orn and a few others. Is that correct, as far as you can tell? If so, I understand what you're talking about and I'll definitely take care to stay consistent in the future!

    • Yep, that looks to be the case. Keep up the good work!

  • Hi Queenmirelurk, wanted to thank you on the recent categorising confusion. Your approach on defusing the situation by creating a blog post to incite discussion was extremely admirable, not to mention you also removed the categories from all the characters! Glad to have you with us in this community :)
