Netherworld Noted and perfectly clear. Thanks a lot!

I'll be thinking and brainstorming, and may @mention you or ask another general question if I get hung up. ^-^

Is it known how to exactly Vongform a planet? The wookieepedia didn't have much information on it. Are multiple Shapers and/or entity(s)/vongwombs required/necessary? What about for small, localized areas, making an oxygen environment in one place?

VONG! :D

 

It's been done a couple times on Chaos. Alderaan and Selvaris both got Vongformed by OS. You could look through those threads for reference.

An NPC creation is optional. 

 

So if I wanted to turn a previous character into an NPC, am a required to sub the character as an NPC, or can I just link there character sheet and leave it at that? 

 

Character in question is Nickolas Imura

 

 

You've answered your own question. NPC creation is optional.

This is an awfully stupid question, but where do you post your Codex creations so that they can be judged?

Depending on what type of creation it is – NPCs go to the NPC section, Planets to the Planet section, etc.

You go into the appropriate subforum of the Codex, click "New Topic" and make your submission. :)

I thought that would be the case, but when I go to any of those subforums it says: “you cannot start a new topic” in place of the button to start a new topic

Yeah, Codex and Factory are closed each year for the holidays. :)

 

They should be reopening today though, so by tomorrow you'll be able to make submissions as normal.

If I had, say, multiple location subs that were essentially identical in terms of production, security, general aesthetics -- except for their individual geographical placement on a planet, would it be more prudent to do one submission for all of them (7, lets say) or do seven submissions for each location? I'm not sure what would be easier on both myself and the judges & what would technically be correct. I'm not opposed to doing seven individual location subs, but I'd definitely like to know what you'd prefer so I could get a head start :D

the passage of time depends entirely on where you're standing. relativity theory… it's so romantic. but it's just so tragic too.

The tradition for these kinds of "mass-produced" locations has been to submit a single submission.

If you have a specific number of iterations in mind, just make note of them somewhere in the location submission, and it should be okay.

If I wanted my character to develop a new lightsaber form through trial and error for the purpose of creating something incredibly hard to counter, would that require a codex submission? I figure it would take many threads to be considered useable

Not at all. 

 

The Codex is not compulsory and there is currently no template where you would be able to submit a lightsaber form anyway. All you need to do is be reasonable in your RP and you will be fine!

Should a codex sub being edited require substantial edits is it better to just archive the old sub and make a new one?

That is an option, though be sure to link it as a source in the resub. We'll likely archive it, if it's not already.

 

You could also request it be put into the Pre-Codex for edits, but please briefly state what you're doing adding to expedite review.

Where is information pertaining to Canon Planets most likely to be found?

 

Example: I'm looking for any Codex page with lore regarding the planet Zeltros. Would a simple search of the "Approved Planets" section be the most effective way to approach this? :)

That depends on if anyone has actually submitted Zeltros to the Codex. If not, I'd suggest searching the Locations and Species approved areas, to see if anyone has added to what's on the planet outside of Canon/Legends.
