EcoModder Wiki

Welcome to the EcoModder Wiki. As ecomodding grows, more and more information will get lost to time and the vortex that are forums. Being new, the Wiki is still in it's infancy, but do bear with it and remember some guidelines for use:

- This exists to store important facts, studies, and links to make them easy to use and grouped by topic.

- If you want to know something and it's not here, start a new article and invite others to help edit it.

- Don't just edit the Wiki willy-nilly, discuss on the talk pages first.

Happy wikiing,

Benjamin (SVOboy)

The Wiki is broken down in to 3 categories: Tips & modifications, Group projects, and Reference Material. Each section has many sub pages. Enjoy looking and if you have data to add go for it! If you have questions just ask one of our wiki moderators:
