Some of you may have noticed our most recent updates have included links to various wiki articles. For those of you not in the know, here is a deeper look into the going-ons of the wiki.
Since we launched our Wiki, we've had an enormous amount of fan backstory written. User-generated content has came from forum games and such, but there has also been quite a bit of pure prose from some talented individuals. Entire minor factions have been built up from scratch, diplomatic relatons and history described, and conflicts and skirmishes illustrated in great detail. The mod's development and backstory has been heavily influenced by fan-created works. Both our latest news updates' names were inspired by an article created by user Super-soviet called "Proletarian Colonisation", which also found its way into the manual.
Most of the long articles on units were written by myself, but there have been some rather lengthy articles on various other aspects of the universe. SSP forum regular Wingman has taken it upon himself to flesh out the entire DF faction: he has contributed to the main DF page as well as created several articles about their politics in an attempt to keep them from being the "generic good guy" faction.
Another frequent contributer, the aforementioned Super-soviet, did a ton of work mostly on the Soviet side of things, like creating the Communist Party article.
The National Communist Parties
The second highest level of the party structure. The national Communists oversee activity in each of the human nations. All members of the Soviet government and high up military posts are required to be members of this party level. In the Soviet Union it runs all social activity and controls political thought and economics. The Soviet parties are divided up along the lines of the ethnic population; old U.S.S.R (i.e a Russian communist party, a Kazakh communist party, a Ukrainianparty, etc.). The Communist parties of other nations are mostly underground, while in natural nations such as the Japanese Empire, they act openly, and enter elections peacefully
We will be incorporating material off the wiki in unit descriptions, the manual, and loading screen tips, so keep up the good work!
