For now, I think it's better that there isn't a navbox for fanon planets, due to their nature (whereas the canon planets have a set amount that will always exist, fanon planets are ever growing). We might consider something for that in the future, but for now, just use the "Planets (Fanon)" category page.
My name's Will and I just saw this website. I loved Meteos since I was 6 and played in my Nintendo, and I really liked this wiki! And I would like to ask for something. I've seen that, apart from the info the games give you about the planets, there's some intresting lore that seems fan-based, and some realy cool fan-species. The thing is, could I join? I hope that you wouldn't mind, and I just want to tag along this project and read and write some of this higly detailed descriptions of the planets. Thank you for listening and you've done a great job designing and writing this website!
You are free to join this project. Make sure you’ve read the Welcome to the Galaxy articles so you know how the site works. Other than that, I hope you enjoy yourself. Please ask me or Serrix if you have any questions :)
P.s.; Be sure to look at the Discord server as well; it’s a good place to introduce yourself.
I played Meteos on the DS as a kid and I remembered how amazing it was knowing you could visit various planets in space with just a tap on the screen and seeing aliens who had individual cultures and hobbies. It was all so awesome to me and I still feel the same way today about the game. But I came here looking for more info about the game since I have only played the DS Meteos and not Wars or online. And I gotta say thanks for the information on the story prologue! I know I could've seen OverHazard's video on the subject but to be honest the quality is crap so thanks a ton!
While that is true, the videos are exceptionally fuzzy. The image I uploaded of Hanihula is of much higher quality. The only reason Ranbarumba has such a fuzzy picture is because I couldn't find anything else.
How good are you at editing images? There's some work that certainly needs to be done involving making the alien species for each planet look good and not having an edgy gray outline around them, as well as obtaining good-looking planet images for the Online and Wars planets that don't look too different from the others.
I found a big image set, consisting of the four planets intorduced in Online, but I don't have a reliable image editing tool. Do you want me to post the image on the wiki?
Also, the style of the images of planets you seem to be taling about (as sprites) is a bit of a lost cause, if only because sprites weren't made for them.
I did, however, find an old Online wiki that has little sprites of the planets there (including some very strange variant planets, such as Gravitor 9 and Jirobato (Winter)). Take a look at the image section I found; http://www19.atwiki.jp/meteos?cmd=upload
(forewarning; it's all in Japanese)
EDIT; Changed Gravitas to it's Japanese name, Gravitor.
Interesting, this could be another useful source. I know someone who can translate some Japanese, I'll see about getting that to work. I have been using an archived version of the Meteos Online website itself, which did show Geolyte/Jirobato in its winter state, I have an image of its background on Geolyte's page. These other situations seem interesting.
As for planet sprites, it doesn't necessarily have to be exactly the same, although something similar would be best, but we should take what we can get, thanks to this little series of games being obscure, although great. I think I know what image you're talking about, but please, do put it here, as I don't recall saving a bookmark to it.
