Seeing as the old wiki is no more, looks like I need a new user page.

About Me

I've been playing War Thunder fairly continuously since December 2013 (Update 1.37). When War Thunder Live launched in April 2014, I joined up on launch day and have been a fairly active community member since (although not so much recently). April 2014 also saw the Launch of the War Thunder CDK, I picked up the CDK shortly after launch and have since become very experienced with the mission editor. I have released plenty of missions on my WT Live page and have also made missions in support of custom vehicles released by other community members, and some videos from WT YouTubers. When multiplayer user missions were being developed I was among other members of the CDK community selected to partake in closed testing.

Me and the Wiki

I started editing the wiki in December 2017 with the aim of improving the (at the time) almost completly barren Maps and Missions section. I have since written articles for all o the ground forces maps in the game and have started progress on the air forces maps. I have also used my knowledge of the CDK to help improve the (at times lacking) documentation covering it on the wiki.

My Testing Area

Pulling BR of a vehicle from the game

A little proof of concept here: the BR of the Wirraway is being pulled from wherever the sidebar info is from and displayed in an article. I feel this could be useful in keeping references to BRs in an article up to date, as presumably the sidebar info gets updated at some sort of interval, so people will no longer need to update a vehicle's BR manually (note that BR changes from the 25.12.2018 update are not included in sidebars, I think wherever sidebars get their information from is probably updated with each major patch).

The BR of a Wirraway is 1.3(AB), 1.3(RB), 1.3(SB).
