Kampung Bunga Kertas and other alike villagesEdit

I was just wondering, as quoted "on the eastern side of the cross, next to it, there are odd houses on each side of a small dirt road, wich ends at a small temple". 


The temple. Or cheifs hut. Or.. ye. xD

Couldn't the temple as well be the cheif of the village's hut? I mean it's a (not a lot but) bigger than the other huts and the "dirtroad" or "dirttrail" leads to the "temple". By cheif of course I mean in "acient times". The Panauans (do you say it like that? ye, probably) are to civilized to still have a cheif of every village (I mean it's 2016..2010 hah xD.). Right? This is just a fan...thing...story...plan...thing whatever it's called. 

I'm just curious, how'd you know it was a temple? 

With all villageness HawaiiOboy (talk) 21:37, April 22, 2016 (UTC)

Well all villages are designed to be similar
Also if there was a "chief", then Avalanche could probably bother to have a civilian standing upon to the military Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 00:41, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
For all we know it could even have been a barber shop at the end of the street in ancient times. We can speculate all we want, but we'll never be able to be completely sure. GMRE (talk) 08:51, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but Anonymous, couldn't the cheif's of the villages have been removed during the 17th or 18th century by a king? (I don't know if they had a king back then). 
Yes, GMRE thats true. But, if we're not completely sure, shouldn't it be more like "on the eastern side of the cross, nexto to it, threre are odd houses on each side of a small dirt road wich ends at a bigger hut"? I mean we may assume there's a temple but we also can't exclude the there could have been cheifs for each village, each in charge of respective villages, handeling trading for an example. Right?

That right and that's why at some wikis the admins are very strict about never allowing anyone to add anything that isn't spelled out the game. At this wiki we generally allow a little bit of something, as long as it doesn't mislead readers about what is actually there and as long as it seems to be based on some logic. I guess I'll have to go add the chiefs house reference now. GMRE (talk) 09:43, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

For all I care, HawaiiOboy, this place could've been inhabited by only the Ular Tribe in the 16th or 17th centuries.
Also, I split this section into a subheading to clear up two different subjects (If that is fine with you GMRE) Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 17:13, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Picture resolutionEdit

Oh :D. Well I had another issue. My pictures are low resolution if I don't choose the "original" resoultion. Do you know why and/or it's happening? And In that case, how to fix it? 

Yours, HawaiiOboy (talk) 13:36, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Why don't you want them to have original resolution? Is your internet too slow to upload those in a reasonable time, or something? GMRE (talk) 14:18, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
No, my internet has fiber (weird super fast thingy). But if I edit a page the edit the pic i upload and I select original resolution, the picture becoms freaking giant. HawaiiOboy (talk) 14:40, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
But all article pictures are set to 264px as the standard size. The picture above is currently set to 400px. ... Oh. Think I figured out what you mean now. When a picture is set to less than original size in an article, then the 264px picture will look bad. Right? The problem is that you keep uploading night pictures, which always look pretty terrible, because of the very low contrast. Things just don't stand out on them. If you'd wait until in-game noon when all the colors look the best, the pictures would probably look better when they're smaller too. GMRE (talk) 14:58, April 23, 2016 (UTC)
So, how do I set 400px to 264px? HawaiiOboy (talk) 15:36, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

While editing, just click on a lot of the little buttons and see what they do. That's how people learn. Also, you might learn a thing, or two from the Just Cause Wiki:Illustrated guide to editing. GMRE (talk) 17:21, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Regarding my previous messageEdit

@Anonymous230385 I prefer to get confirmation before just slapping a new video on a wiki page.

@GMRE Those black objects are indeed solid. I made the mistake of trying to fly through one, only to have my Thunderhawk explode. I also figured out how to routinely get underground. If you've noticed, some trains in Just Cause 3 have Thunderhawks on them. Well, if you destroy the locomotive and then travel far enough away to get the train holding the Thunderhawk to despawn, you can get in the jet and its physics will be messed up, allowing you to enter the underground. A little tip though. Get it up to around 55 knots, then dip one of the wings under. It should fall right in.

I also believe I know what those objects are. I believe them to be rendering tools used to project map textures onto the surface. The same thing can be found in Halo Reach, here

Oh, and to answer your question, this was on Xbox One, same as always. Blu Razgriz (talk) 19:43, April 23, 2016 (UTC)

Slum Shacks?Edit

The village Pekan Pakis has this description. "This is probably the slum part of Kampung Tukang Besi, because the villages are very close too each other and this looks like some old shacks that were thrown up by the poor people who could not afford the houses below."

Uhm, are they really shacks? I mean the houses are almost exactly the same as Kampung Negeri Sawah.

By the way, I've might edited that now. HawaiiOboy (talk) 11:12, April 24, 2016 (UTC) Informal. radio shack.

Those are relative terms. There's no strict definition of a "slum", or a "shack". There's many village articles that define those as such. GMRE (talk) 11:49, April 24, 2016 (UTC)
First of all, there is a definition of a slum: 
So... yeah. Actually I don't really know what a strict defenition is.
Yeah, because the houses are probably built of clay (at least the walls) and aren't you kinda not poor, if you can afford to build with clay?
And Shack.
Rough cabin... I... I... don't really know what they... ment there. yeah...
But, what do you count as a shack?
Myself, I think of a shack as a house, built by old metal plates. Also I think of it as that the house has no framework, but I guess everybody have their own defention. 

Now, that's what I call a shack.

The Wikipedia definition of a slum has a few pictures of the panauan-style wooden shacks. A "shack" a generally a really crappily built small house/shed. It's a very loose term. The thing you pictured is definitely a shack of sorts. See here for more types of shacks (some of the small houses there are much too good to be "shacks", but this is kind of a matter of opinion). GMRE (talk) 15:07, April 24, 2016 (UTC)
Yes, but still, many websites and people seem to agree that for it to be a slum it has to bee many people living close together, but also poor. These Panauan Peasants may be poor, or most likley but they're still not living, really really really close to eachother. In a slum there's often not even like 1 meter from each house where, in Pakis, there is at least like 3 or 4 meters from each house.

What the heck is the < span > tagEdit

Link one and link two Anonymous230385 (talk) 15:41, April 24, 2016 (UTC)

Those are some kind of major wikia glitches that happen each and every time someone copies and pastes text in visual mode. They're always invisible and have no effect, but over time they can completely like increase the article size by 10+ times, unless they're removed in source mode. GMRE (talk) 17:21, April 24, 2016 (UTC)

Some odd glitchEdit

You obviously did not remove the categories

Glitch Anonymous230385 (talk) 15:06, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

Actually I did remove categories. Sometimes when someone edits only a section, instead of the whole article, some glitch adds a duplicate set of categories to the bottom of that section. Then I go and edit and remove the duplicates. GMRE (talk) 15:30, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
Hmm... interesting
On another note, I'm going to go back to a custom signature (if you don't mind) Anonymous230385 (talk) 15:33, April 25, 2016 (UTC)
M'kay. I guess I'll disable the blue text then. GMRE (talk) 15:45, April 25, 2016 (UTC)

On another subject, [ Daedalus] always seems to redirect back to [] for no apparent reason (as if something negates the effect of [[(Generic link)|This]]

And I'm sorry if my grammar is so grammatically broken but I can't explain it any other way Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 17:06, April 26, 2016 (UTC)

"Outdated weaponry"Edit

In a leaked screenshot (the content of which may become Cut game content) Rico is using a weapon that's not seen, but the weapon icon resembles the JC2 Grenade Launcher. + In a leaked screenshot (the content of which may become Cut game content) Rico is Dual Wielding small revolvers. Possibly a comeback of the Holdt R4 Pitbulls.

I have no idea where that first screenshot is. I instinctively thought it could be on the Just Cause 3 article, but there is no "HUD icon" in any of them.

The second one is probably Rico dual wielding CS44 Peacebringers.

Just Cause 3 leaked screenshot (road shooting 2)

Are you going to do something about them? Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 15:25, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

If the text you found is on the JC3 article, then it should be removed. The JC2 grenade launcher picture is in the Cut game content from Just Cause 3 gallery. GMRE (talk) 15:32, April 27, 2016 (UTC)
Where did you find those quotes? I can remember writing those, but they weren't at Just Cause 3. GMRE (talk) 15:56, April 27, 2016 (UTC)

Bering I-86DP :3 Edit

Yes, I wrote that there spawned a bering a some village (ehe, I don't remember which specific one right now) but, yeah. I take all my photos in JC MP, beacuse it's easier to get around faster, well I was wondering that this Beeeering might just spawn in Nerdcubeds server on MP, sooo I guess that was a mistake. ? HawaiiOboy (talk) 19:15, May 2, 2016 (UTC)

That's the thing. It's Just Cause 2 Multiplayer. In that version, you can have a military Winstons Amen 69 spawning at the Roaches HQ for all I care Anonymous230385 Any questions? Wanna talk? 19:39, May 2, 2016 (UTC)
