I don't know the proper format for this, but does anyone else think we should add a compatibility section? This page would have a list of popular mods known to be incompatible with BTW and fixes, if any exist. ~Organum [2:36 AM EST 7/19/10] Edit: Oh wait, there is one already. I alter my suggestion and advise that we make it easier to find, as well as...Well, putting stuff in it.

  • I added a link to the compatibility list on the main page ~Thekyz
  • Rearranged the listing of items to sort by name by default. Please add new items alphabetically --TheGuy 17:50, 31 August 2011 (MDT)
  • Working on adding some of the new additions to 2.94 into the main page's table. ~Hideharu
  • --Oggylt 07:52, 8 November 2011 (MST) i Think we need to ad some box at the top of post indicating newest version and box with recent changes and sends to recent changes page when clicked
    • I think a badge aligned to the right, roughly the size of a standard crafting image that has some picture related to the mod and Latest version 3.10 written on it that links to the BTW forum release topic would probably be the best way to do it. If people are using the wiki, they are already smarter than most users. --TheGuy 16:40, 8 November 2011 (MST)
      • I added an infobox to the main page to do that. Thekyz 14:30, 15 December 2011 (MST)

Breeding Page

Since automated breeding is becoming a big topic, I think we should add a page on various setups and designs. There really isn't much, at the moment.

On the same note, having pages for tree farms/wheat farms/reed farms, etc, would be good too, just showing various designs and how they work.

Many Broken Videos

Many of the youtube videos are tagged as private and as such are not able to be viewed, Is removing the links the suitable action?

--LaserSushi 02:38, 25 August 2012 (EST)

  • Guess so. If you can find an alternative on YouTube do so but if it's broken, no need to keep it. Thekyz

Alright, I Will take down any I notice. If more are needed once I get a less laggy system I will make the videos myself. --LaserSushi

  • I have started editing all video links to make them all work (will be just links, Can't figure out embedding)--NathanJ (talk) 21:58, 21 November 2012 (MST)


I think we are do for a clean-up pass on the front page. There's a lot of good content but it can be hard to navigate for new players. I'd suggest a "New players" section (with links to spoiler-free pages), a "Hardcore Mechanics/Spoilers" section with links to more in-depth guides, particularly focusing on the early/mid game changes, and a "Power and Automation" section focusing on the post-Anvil mechanics (especially automation blocks and suggestions for automated builds).

In all of this, we should be ready to just cut some content if need be. In particular, I think the list of added items/blocks may be a bit excessive for this page?

  • Seems fine to me. I agree we don't need a list of all items and blocks here; perhaps that could be replaced with a link to another page. Also, I think it's probably best to delegate discussion of wiki editing to the forums rather than using the talk pages (assuming you have a forum account). People are more likely to see it and the editing community is small enough that we don't really have to split it into talk pages. (ps you can use four tildes, ~~~~, to leave a signature on talk pages, or three if you don't want to date it.) --Gaga654 (talk) 16:33, 16 July 2018 (MDT)
