The Escapists Wiki

8 December 2020[]

I've honestly been thinking of trying to add loot tables to item pages in order to better visually describe the method of obtaining as the game seems to use RNG in terms of desk and person loot even resulting in certain items appearing to be excluded from certain prisons such as Glue not appearing in USS anomaly. I've also been wanting to include "Keyless" methods on certain prison pages as they seem to heavily rely on a video guide created by "Gurumatt" and that beating up several guards to find a key can be rather tedious to some.

As for loot tables, that's a large undertaking. It often requires delving into the code of the game itself in order to obtain otherwise cryptic statistics. Unfortunately, I personally know nothing about such work. I can only do basic research by playing the game itself, and even then I don't have much. In terms of the wiki, I can only perform surface-level work like general editing or blocking vandals, but nothing larger. On the topic of keyless escapes, they can definitely be added if they can be researched! The videos themselves are used in general as a supplement, though I understand that many escapes might be improperly documented. --2057clones (talk) 02:59, 9 December 2020 (UTC)
regarding loot tables i believe it would be rather cluttered with percentages as they seem more dependant on the prison more than anything so datamining may not even be necessary on a side note i have been trying to make icons for these. but am struggling regarding sprites for TE2 guard, inmate and medic as none of the pics on the wiki seem to be clean enough Wolf6537 (talk) 19:44, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
Icons for what use? As for the images, yes they aren't really clean, but without datamining it turns out somewhat difficult to get perfectly good images. --2057clones (talk) 20:37, 10 December 2020 (UTC)
i so far made icons to represent TE1 desks however i am struggling regarding TE2 for its much more in depth customization and what not Wolf6537 (talk) 22:28, 10 December 2020 (UTC)

Inmate Desk Guard Desk

Hm. I see, but I'm not quite sure how/where you intend to use these icons? I could use more of an explanation. As for the icons themselves, perhaps use Desk te2.png and maybe grab the map icons for characters, since they are very simple, and put them in place of the character's head? But I still don't quite get how you want to use these desk icons. --2057clones (talk) 00:27, 11 December 2020 (UTC)

How about for each prison there can be a visual referance (Youtube Video) on how to escape them. Thanks for looking at my idea.. If you did 05:47, 13 March 2017 (UTC)

Just a thing i like to do sometimes is put a poster on a wall at things like work areas, Then can bring Contraband right past metal dectectors, A worthy replacement for the Contraband Pouch. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 16:17, 22 February 2015‎

This isn't really the place for requests like that, this wiki is not ran by the developer of the game. You can contact the developers using the details at their website. --User:HiddenKnowledge/signature 07:14, 28 December 2014 (UTC)

Okay, so I've been using this Wiki for a while, and so far my experience is great, really. Although there's a but to that. In addition to all those main articles featuring items and crafting recipes, there should be a list of all the prisons currently avaliable with links to their wiki pages. U can use Maps site as a refference. - Aroow — Preceding unsigned comment added by Aroow (talkcontribs) 117:06, 3 February 2015‎

I don't understand why there isn't a controls/options/settings section. What button do you press to make someone follow you with above 80 intellect?! — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 01:13, 16 February 2015‎

Home Page Format Remake[]

I think we should redo the homepage to a look more like the Terraria wiki home page, specifically, multiple sections containing links for each item in that section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by I heart Notch (talkcontribs) 02:42, 28 February 2015
