I can work on Gunning/Weaponry, but I feel that it'd be good to have a team for it, as it is quite large :)

I really think that anything talking about the game should explain the difference between "Pilot" and "Captain" rather than just combine them. Otherwise newer players could get confused.

It's not that advanced. Most of it is fairly easy to pull off, and can make a huge difference for repair efficiency. If there's going to be a section on that, I'd love to write it.

It might go under ships. Like: Ships > Pyra > Common Parkour Tricks.

I mean, a basic squid engine hop is the difference between survival and death in a keroshine situation.

We have a part of this in our russian guides, however I have no time for now to make a translation, sorry. Maybe Google-translate? I can give you a link if needed.

Hmm, I'm rather unsure if new players wouldn't be confused by seperating Pilot and Captain. In the Lobby, people usually ask for Captains meaning Pilots. It might be consensus in the forum that Pilot and Captain are seperate roles, but is that also consensus among the "common rabble" ingame?

Aye :) I'll edit that in! Mr. Sunderland, I trust you'll volunteer in the Progress & Workload Distribution Thread for those? :D

Edit: Updated above; Fine like that? Keon, Sunderland?

Nah, add some other subcatergories. It looks lonely.

Let's see.. Sorry for the late reply, I got caught up with studying for my finals past Saturday. If I got them, my way towards transcultural communication is even ground :) Anyways - I've added common loadouts to the Ship sections. I feel it looks a bit more bloated now, are we fine with that?
