Material Properties - some elucidation requiredEdit
For the different materials (wood, metal, etc) there is a helpful section at the bottom that says stuff like this...
Distinguishing content from different gamesEdit
Looking at some of the pages of information about the functional components of the games, it's not always clear whether a feature is shared between all of LBP, LBP(PSP) and LBP2 - or from specific add-on content. If there is no intention to create separate pages for each of these games, perhaps some icons could be developed to allow people to determine whether the description of a component/material applies to one or a combination of these? I think it would be useful to tell at a glance whether a component or material appears or has particular functionality in LBP or LBP(PSP)... Not everyone will have all three games and even if they do, it might help to be reminded that X doesn't work in the older versions. And I think it would be nicer than just including text in the description to clarify the difference between versions. QuietlyWrong 00:58, 29 January 2011 (PST)
We do have templates, such as Template:Lbp2, available to colour-code items, such as headings etc, according to what game they belong to, and many of the infoboxes' borders change colour depending on whether the object is applicable to LBP1, LBP2 or LBP PSP. Also, we're planning on starting a series of LBP1 articles about specifics of the components in LBP1, but I don't know that they'd be updated and maintained, as few people play LBP1 anymore.
- Weight: 10
- Resistance: 6
- Friction: 3
But it would help if there were some sort of explanation (via a link, perhaps) as to how these properties work in practice. I mean, how is resistance measured and what is it resistance to, exactly? What is friction measured out of (is three high or low or middling)? What does weight mean? (As in, what weight is equivalent to sackboy's weight and what weight to buoyancy in water? How much weight, at rest, will squash sackboy, or how much can he push along the ground?) Or perhaps a page could be created for Weight, Resistance and Friction that plots how the materials compare and gives some explanation of the practicalities... — This unsigned comment was added by QuietlyWrong (talk) at 05:44, 29 January 2011 (PST)
