Forums: Index > Wiki discussion > Treating the Wild Appalachia update

Hi everyone,

As you all know a few days ago Fallout 76 patch was released, with the inclusion of a new content pack named Wild Appalachia. Two more are to follow.

Until now it's been treated on this wiki as an add-on, with most pages having the Wild Appalachia references in the infoboxes and categories. Although several wiki pages from this new update are categorized Fallout 76. So there's still some confusion I think.

Personally, I'm unsure if we should define the Wild Appalachia as an add-on. It was released within a patch update, unlike every other add-ons in the past. Meaning everyone gets the update, and it's for free. Besides that, I have the Fo76 Editor (Fallout 76 GECK) working since yesterday, and it's not that easy to distinguish the content from the original Fallout 76 content. There's isn't a separate Wild Appalachia branch, and it doesn't have a unique DLC ID (starting 01...). All the new content is mixed the old Fallout 76 content.

So one could say it's just a part of a patch, and should be treated as such? What I'm saying is, what if we don't consider it an add-on, but just keep everything Fallout 76 related, without refering to Wild Appalachia. As an alternative we could try to distinguish the new content and only put links on the Wild Appalachia page, but that'd be it.

I can imagine there are other opinions and some or more of you do want it see it as an add-on, and keep the content separate, with Wild Appalachia refered to on pages. Point is, we should make a decision about what to do, and not use both options as I've seen done up till now.

I would treat it as separate. I guess the closest match we have had from this in the past is the Courier's Stash. This one was treated as an add-on while it didn't even bring new items. And the items linked to it didn't have an ID that could be differentiated from the rest (as they were in the game from the start). I know it's not the same, but I think the same treatment is best here. - Greets Peace'n Hugs (talk) (blog) 19:42, March 16, 2019 (UTC)
