Man, look at you go with those maps![edit source]

I just wanted to let you know I think you're doing a great job with your work on the mapbuilding project. :) --nekobawt 21:36, 7 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks! Most of them are done using GIMP -- it's a bit hard to learn but easy to use once you get it. And, it's free. I'll be adding more maps in coming weeks. Inelcirc 18:48, 14 November 2008 (UTC)
Dude, I *love* GIMP; positively swear by it. I especially love how you can create a new image directly from the keyboard. --nekobawt 18:57, 14 November 2008 (UTC)

Maps[edit source]

I'd like to second the praise for the maps you are doing, this wiki really needs them. Those ones of the abandoned mine were great! How do you get it to line up so well? Administrator Hurston (T # C) 11:37, 21 November 2008 (UTC)

Thank you, too! Yes, getting the lines straight is a challenge. The best way I've found is to repeatedly jiggle the minimap with the left and right keys until the lines are straight and then take a screenshot. Usually, not all the lines are straight, but enough of them are to make it usable. Then move a bit and do it again. That way, you can paste the good portions over the crooked ones. There will still be a few uneven lines this way, but with a bit of GIMP experience these can be "ironed out". GIMP is really good and fast at pixel editing, so I just blow up the image to 800%, use the pencil at width 1, and straighten the lines by hand. This is too laborious if there's a lot of crooked lines but otherwise works OK.
Another problem is that Jagex seems to scale the minimap as you move about, so that it can be hard to piece together the screenshots. A couple of times a corridor simply would not meet up with itself as I stitched the map together. The best approach here seems to be to start in the centre of what will be the map and work outwards, doing the four corners last. That minimizes the problem -- the edges may well end up a bit distorted (but rarely noticeably so) but it works since they don't have to meet up with anything.
One other technique is to be deliberately imprecise. Some maps are just too big and complex to even try to get straight lines. Instead, I stitch the screenshots, set the pencil to width 3, and then drawn the edge of the wall with a thick line. The outline of the rooms are good and the map is quite usable, although some detail has been lost. See the Chaos Tunnels map for an example. - Inelcirc 23:26, 21 November 2008 (UTC)
It sounds like you came across the same problems as I did, but you have more patience than me. My attempt at the observatory dungeon looks much scruffier than your maps. I found it very difficult to make the minimap straight with the arrow keys, kudos to you for managing it. It must have been hard with something like the chaos tunnels, as there are no straight edges at all! (not to mention all those aggressive monsters). Keep up the good work. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 13:05, 24 November 2008 (UTC)

Most excellent work,[edit source]

Robe of Elidinis[edit source]

Hello,

On 14 October 2008, you edited Robe of elidinis to say that the robes protect the wearer from the desert sun better than regular Desert clothing. My experiments suggest this is not the case. Do you have evidence that they do?

Thank you,

Thezmothete 17:08, 30 November 2008 (UTC)

It seemed to work that way when I played the Sprits of Elidinis quest -- longer time between drinks while wearing these robes than with regular desert robes. I've done a search and found no other confirmation of this anywhere, though :( Inelcirc 15:15, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
I've done some more checking and still can't confirm this. It's be so long since I've used regular desert robes that maybe I've misremembered. I think it best that the article should just say that the robes of Elidinis work like desert clothing rather than saying they're better. I've gone and made the change. Inelcirc 15:29, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Or if it does not make difference compared to staying without clothes, maybe this entire section about sun protection in the Robe of elidinis should be removed and replaced with note that do not protect from sun? Golduin 15:34, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
No, they do provide protect from desert heat. It's whether they are the same as desert clothing or better than desert clothing. Inelcirc 16:51, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
Checkout the talk page for the Robe of elidinis article, the experiment of Thezmothete is more like proving that they don't protect from sun. Golduin 17:37, 5 December 2008 (UTC)
OK, I have run my own tests. NEITHER the robe of elidinis NOR the slave robes provide any extra protection from desert heat. (Except maybe during the quests they are required in -- I can't check this as I've done the quests.) I've changed all the articles I could find that claim otherwise!

Combat Styles[edit source]

I like the new combat styles boxes you are adding to the weapons pages, but how about making a template out of them? Administrator Hurston (T # C) 14:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

I wasn't aware general users can make templates. I just took a look at the help text; I guess there'd have to be three general templates, one each for combat styles with melee, ranged, and magic weapons. Then the templates could be subst: into the articles and the specific added.
Another way would be a specific template for each weapon class. For example, all longswords have the same combat style, so the template could have the generic longsword screenshot plus the specific text for the styles. This would save typing but would make for many more templates than the first option.
Any idea which way is better? Inelcirc 16:43, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
I'd go for the one template per weapon class. I can help you out with it if you wish. Administrator Hurston (T # C) 16:47, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
OK, sounds good, and I appreciate the offer of help. Maybe as a first try, we can convert the Combat style info for the Dragon longsword into a template for longswords. I've recently confirmed that that the info is the same for all longswords from bronze through dragon, plus for Silverlight and Darklight. I believe it will be the same for the Blurite sword and for Vesta's longsword but I haven't checked this yet. Inelcirc 18:50, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
I've done the dragon longsword, and added some links as well. What do you think? Administrator Hurston (T # C) 18:59, 6 February 2009 (UTC)
It looks great; the links are good idea. I'll go ahead and add the template to the rest of the longsword articles. That'll probably be it for me for a while today. Inelcirc 19:03, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

I've made a template for daggers based on your template for longswords, Hurston, and I've replaced the manual text I put in for daggers with the template. Over the next few days, I'll convert my other earlier entries to templates (for those that would be used in more than one place) and then move on to new weapons. Thanks again for your suggestions and help! Inelcirc 23:33, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Keep up the good work. You are working so fast that I thought you were a bot at first. =P The new look is great and much cleaner code wise. - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 23:52, 6 February 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! Inelcirc 15:12, 7 February 2009 (UTC)

Excellent work[edit source]

You were working very hard to update what you have done. Awesome job.

Keep it up and have fun editing! :)

UotM[edit source]

Hey, I noticed your edits are amazing; do you mind if I nominate you for UotM? Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 10:56, October 3, 2009 (UTC)

Thanks, please do so. Inelcirc 16:25, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
There you go. Good luck. Quest.png Gaz Lloyd 7:^]Events!99s 18:52, October 4, 2009 (UTC)
Congratulations, Inelcirc! You are November's User of the Month! You should be applauded for your great efforts and the community has recognised them. See the thing I wrote here or on the main page section. Feel free to request someone that knows you better to rewrite it, I just needed to put something at least for the new month. Also note, you were tied with User:Ruudvan10000 so I added you both. Cheers, Chicken7 >talk 10:59, November 5, 2009 (UTC)
Congratulations, It is an honour to draw with you. Ruud (talk)(Suggest me naems) 11:40, November 5, 2009 (UTC)

Within the Light[edit source]

I saw on your userpage that you were looking for the hidden meaning to the light puzzle of the quest - the Dev confirmed that the only secret it contains is that the puzzle is randomized to an extent, different for every player. Thought you might like to know! Orbie 06:52, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Thank you! I was thinking it might have been patterns in the beams of light to see if they made some shape or symbol, but I couldn't see any. Inelcirc 15:43, November 19, 2009 (UTC)

Is there a page that has all the new article? --Huge234 02:33, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Have you seen the article on the Within the Light quest? Inelcirc 14:25, December 3, 2009 (UTC)

Al Kharid palace[edit source]

Do you think you could create an article about the Al Kharid palace? It's not even mentioned in the Notable Features section of the Al Kharid article, aside from a picture of it. If you need more images/maps, I could upload them for you. --Iiii I I I 02:31, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

OK, I'll do an article about the palace in a few days. Please go ahead and upload any images or maps of the place and let me know their names; I'll include them. Inelcirc 16:55, December 5, 2009 (UTC)
On second thought, if you just upload the images but there's no links to them from any article, some might come along and delete them. Why don't you wait until the article goes up? Inelcirc 16:10, December 6, 2009 (UTC)
Article is in place, see Al Kharid palace. I also added a paragraph on the palace to the Notable features section of the Al Kharid article. Inelcirc 15:36, December 9, 2009 (UTC)

The Temple at Senntisten maps[edit source]

Thanks for the maps. I had just nominated the dungeon maps for the Mapbuilding Project and noticed that you had already done them. That was the fastest response for anything i had requested - 30 seconds before i asked!!! LOL! thanks again Chrislee33 22:10, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

LOL, I forgot to list that I was working on them in the project page! Inelcirc 22:44, December 5, 2009 (UTC)

Mines names[edit source]

Me and Degenret were discussing the names of mines and thought about making some simple rules when naming mines so that they are all follow a convention. Since you created the amazing mines table which named most of the mines in the first place, do you mind if you give your opinion on the subject?? Unicorn horn dust.png Evil Yanks talk 11:14, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

OK, I'll comment there. BTW, I only reorganized and expanded the mine table, User:Aurora sword created this useful article. Inelcirc 15:51, December 8, 2009 (UTC)

Dream World maps[edit source]

I have the maps of the diferent spots for the Dream World article ([[:File:Dream World main map.png|here]], [[:File:A game of chance map.png|here]], [[:File:Communicating with numbers map.png|here]], [[:File:Anything you can do... map.png|here]], [[:File:Chop, chop, chop away map.png|here]], and [[:File:The race is on! map.png|here]]), but I don't know where to put them, since the article doesn't mention them. Where do you think they should they go? --Iiii I I I 21:36, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Wow, that's great! How about for now you make a picture gallery in the article and put the maps in it, with captions if you want. That way they get up as soon as possible. Longer term, a 'Tour of the Dream World' section can be written and the maps moved there. I'd do it myself, but I might not have time this week. Inelcirc 22:20, February 15, 2010 (UTC)

Mapbuilding[edit source]

Hey Inelcirc, I'm Spineweilder. I just happened to pass through the Pyramid Plunder page and I saw that it's mapped! I'm starting to get interested in mapbuilding and I was wondering that could you tell me how to do mapbuilding in great detail? Recent uploads SpineTalkGuest book 02:42, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, Spineweilder. There's a wiki page devoted to how to make maps. Just type in 'RuneScape:WikiGuilds/Mapbuilding' in the wiki's search box and it will take you there. Inelcirc 15:29, July 24, 2011 (UTC)

Chrome Goggles[edit source]

Hiya. I assumed it was a virus, because Google Chrome apperently gives the user more protection and safety. So.. I made the link with the goggles, and the 'monster with tentacles'. Lol Adult chameleon (automatic).png Anurin Talk · Sign! . 21:52, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, ElfAnurin. I agree that a virus would make sense for the reasons you list, but there is no info in the game itself (that I can find) that says it is a virus (or an alien). This makes it speculation rather than a fact and the wiki's policies are against having speculation in the articles. Inelcirc 21:48, December 10, 2011 (UTC)
