    This project is delayed indefinitely until I can rework my notes and determine how much content is wiki worthy.

    Shaman vs Shaman gameplay, found in the Dual Shaman map mode, is a deep and engaging topic that deserves its own page. This new page will explain the inner workings of Shaman vs Shaman and list common techniques.

    • 06 Apr 2018: Glad I never got to the full writeup. I need to take this content apart and see how much of it truly belongs on a wiki.
    • 08 Jun 2017: Outline complete! Getting ready for the full page writeup soon. Last call for suggestions.
    • 03 Jun 2017: Page design complete!

    • Idea originated from Dual Shaman mode page
    • Create dedicated page - split content from Dual Shaman
    • Take techniques, organize by function

    (Reasons sorted by promin…

    Putting this project on hold. I need to make this page a lot shorter or find a way to use/refine the existing materials.

    Part of an effort to reform the Mouse Techniques page, this article contains an outline for teaching the walljump technique.

    • Walljump easy to perform, but deceptively hard to learn
    • Procedure difficult to explain
    • Break down key elements to ease teaching process
    • Trim explanations to be as concise as possible

    1. Pre-Lesson: Midair Jump
      1. Mice can jump in midair if they haven't jumped already
        1. Keep the explanation very short
      2. Image: jump after running off cliff
      3. Uses
        1. Travel farther horizontally than straight jump
        2. Corner jump travels farther still
      4. How it works:
        1. Explain difference between ground state and jump state
        2. Ground state: when mouse stands o…

    The creations and techniques pages are currently mishmashed and loosely networked. This article contains a high level outline for how the pages might fit together in a more efficient and usable fashion. [Under Construction]

    • Link content together in a way that is easy to navigate
    • Summarize techniques/creations in a central location, using index pages
    • Preserve more detailed content from specific topic pages
    • Remove content that is:
      • subjective
      • duplicate
      • unexplained
      • unnecessary

    1. Mouse Techniques Index Page
      1. Techniques have individual main pages,
      2. Main pages feature repetitive content sections:
        1. Instructions (main summary)
        2. Special Interactions (tips)
        3. How it Works
      3. Consider using template:tabber to compile all techniques on same page
    2. Shaman Techniques Index Page
      1. Inves…

    Current Shaman page is unorganized, may also display some redundant information better linked from other pages. Consider writing a new outline for the page.

    [Work in Progress]

    • Preface with one-sentence summary:
      • In the game of Transformice, a Shaman is a player mouse specially chosen to guide other mice and help them get the cheese to the hole.  
    1. About---What is a Shaman?
      1. One mouse guides many
      2. Given special powers
        1. Summon objects to solve challenges
        2. Map-specific powers
        3. Levels up to gain additional skills and traits, selected by skill tree
        4. Free to use abilities as they wish
      3. Each round a different shaman
    2. Becoming a Shaman
      1. Basic summary
        1. Each round, shaman selected by room score
        2. Rounds last for around two minutes
        3. After playing as Shaman, room score reset
        4. Sometim…

    To-Do List

    November 2, 2016 by Mieh

    Reform Template:Infobox skill

    • "Number of upgrades / uses" row not user friendly, also non-specific about unit of measurement
      • Uses unintuitive switch system; users have to know case values to use template properly
      • Needs to continue showing values by skill point, while keeping single-point skills as a single value---a function that the switch system currently performs.
        • Solution A: Use "single_skill_point" boolean value to mark single point skills, and use math-based logic to display values by skill point. Requires editing single point skill pages.
        • Solution B: Remove logic, reforming row into a freehand text field. Grants more flexibility than solution A, but requires re-editing all skill pages.
      • As for unit of measurement, add a variable used to cu…
