Project for updating the wiki to build 41.

Welcome to Project Build 41 Update, a PZwiki project that aims to add all features added with build 41 to the wiki.

Build 41 is the biggest update the game has ever had or will ever have. There are a substantial amount of new items, game mechanics, visuals, and much, much more. This update is expected to have an impact on almost every page on the wiki in some way, which is why this project has been set up. Here, we can organize what needs to be added/updated and communicate with one another on the discussion page.

Anyone is welcome to join by adding the contributor userbox to their profile from the contributors section below.

Update pages to most recent versions

See Version categories for outdated pages. These categories are stated to be removed in the end.

  • Items
    • Update Items make double sure everything is there.
    • Update items to be up to standards, add models to all the new items' infoboxes (WIP; see Category:Image improvement needed) – it's being ironed out over time, listed on PZwiki:Tasks, not really a blocker)
  • Crafting pages (including language ones), most were populated with old recipes and need to be updated again to serve a purpose (will be done separately; metalworking part of Project Spiffo's Construction Crew)
  • Individual skill pages, potentially add more (falls out of the scope of the project).

  • Cooking (build 41.53 – optional, can be done later)
  • First Aid (build 41.65 – optional, can be done later)
  • Fishing (build 41.66 – optional, can be done later)
