Development of 7k as along the lines of:

7k2 diverges slightly in the economic model in that killing and destroying result in financial gain.'

Research Questions

Why was 7k called Ambition? Why was it changed to Seven Kingdoms?

What kind of development was there from the beta release to the demos to the final release of 7k?

What spurred the changes from 7k to 7kaa to 7k2?

beta testers. 7k2 wishlist on websites.

Did Imagic influence any bit of the design and development of 7k? If so, what?

Referencing template

I have created a new template called {{note}} that can be used to place anchored sources at the bottom of the page. It takes three arguments:

  • id, the anchor; it is a good idea to avoid spaces and special characters in this one, for the sake of readability
  • label, the label that shows up in the paragraph where the source is referenced; this is not implemented yet
  • text, the actual text of the citation

It would look something like this:

{{Note|Issac2019|Issac 2019|Issac, Joshua (2019-04-27). "Talk:Ambitious Seven Kingdoms: Origins, Design, and Development of Seven Kingdoms". Seven Kingdoms Wiki. Accessed 2019-04-27.}}

This can then be linked to in the paragraph using the following code:

The Note template was created on 27 April 2019 ([[#Issac2019|Issac 2019]]).

The part after the hash is the id argument supplied to the Note template. The part after the pipe can be arbitrary.

I have also created {{Source link}} to link to source code files. The benefit of using this template is that if the source code repository is changed, all links can be fixed in a single edit to the template. --Joshua Issac (talk) 16:43, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

I have reverted my revisions to the page after realising that it is for a paper. Feel free to restore them if you need. --Joshua Issac (talk) 16:51, 27 April 2019 (UTC)

Thank you

Thank you so much for the help! Let's get this wiki going. Honestly, I don't know much about Mediawiki, so any help is appreciated) But the source code citations reference a specific commit hash which is on the3dfxdude's repo at a certain time. so i dont think i would be changing the citations if he moves his repo.

To Do

Add page numbers to citations.

double double check sources and citations for correct use and MLA 8

cite 7kaa game where needed

complete links in works cited? or remove hyperlinks?

add missing dates in the in text citations

de capitalize beginning of quotes


Unit Loyalty


Aid/Tribute info repeats

Lacking info about quality of life in economic model

discuss technology?

Amarok talks about a Military Model in his 7kaa guide.

Need background info in beginning of "origins" ? kinda just just after the dev of capitalism

Empire Building Aspects

Obviously compare it to Civilization

Begin comparing RTSes here for now.
