Page format

We can list monsters on this page or other pages (not both please). I've seen a few pages pop up like Slimes, if these are made they should have a link in Discussion so copys don't end being made Also having the proper information listed with a resting position pic of the monster.

Monster Page template?

I suggest converting this page into something like Villagers and having individual pages for each monster, or at least type of monster? I'd almost consider slimes one monster with variants, same with bats. But afaik all the other monsters have individual patterns, art, HP, and even strategies for killing them.

That would mean we'd get Slimes and Bats as pages, then Cave Flyer, Maggots, Beetle, Stone Crabs, Spooky Ghosts, Skeletons, and the rest (that are missing).

I agree, almost any layout would be better than the current. It's disorganized and poorly sorted. Plus, many enemies have enough stats and variety to merit their own pages. Trying to put all that information onto this one page, in the current system, would take up way too much space and be far too cluttered.

Ok so, I got an xnb opener from the forums, and so I can get good sprites of every monster, as well as their proper names. I'm going to start the process of overhauling the page and moving all the monster information over to individual pages, it may take some time, a few hours maybe.

You may want to check out Monsters/Sandbox. I suspect you are aiming to get a similar result to that and duplicating effort seems silly.

PenguinTod (talk) 17:47, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Yeah, it's about like that, but the current state of that sandbox is a little low quality and missing a lot of monsters. I'm still working on the edits. Should I save them to a sandbox instead of pushing them right to the monsters page, once I finish?

TownEater (talk) 18:07, 3 March 2016 (EST)

I'm fine either way, so my vote goes with be bold! Go ahead and push it over the main Monsters page and see what sticks.

PenguinTod (talk) 18:18, 3 March 2016 (EST)

I've finished the new monsters page, but I want to get the new monster pages done before I push the changes, so anyone looking for the information won't be out of luck until those pages are done.

TownEater (talk) 18:56, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Ok, I published the monsters page and I made pages for every monster. There are still some issues with image inconsistency, and all the monster pages are stubs, but I'd call this a good improvement on what was here before and all the monster information has been preserved on the new pages.

TownEater (talk) 19:37, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Tables would be better suited then galleries for this page. Some images are stretched and the size relative to each others is way off.

Monster Names?

Is there any central place to get the real, game given names of these monsters? As of right now there's still plenty more to add, but a problem I'm running into is I don't really know what to call these things, or where to find that out. The poster in the adventurer's guild helps a little, but doesn't give too many specifics.

TownEater (talk) 07:01, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Only a few minutes later, it's occurred to me to check in Steam/steamapps/common/Stardew Valley/Content/Characters/Monsters and look at the names of the sprites listed there. The result is a list of names and an interesting job of piecing out who is who. Here's the list:

Armored Bug, Bat, Big Slime, Bug, Cat, Crow, Duggy, Dust Spirit, Fireball, Fly, Frog, Frost Bat, Frost Jelly, Ghost, Goblin Peasant, Green Slime, Grub, Lava Bat, Lava Crab, Metal Head, Mummy, Rock Crab, Serpent, Shadow Brute, Shadow Girl, Shadow Guy, Shadow King, Shadow Shaman, Skeleton Mage, Skeleton Warrior, Skeleton, Sludge, Spiker, Squid Kid, Stone Golem, Turtle, Yeti

TownEater (talk) 07:12, 3 March 2016 (EST)

Is there anything known about the yeti and the turtle besides the images (http://imgur.com/a/vxNtF)? Hard to find anything about them anywhere.
