When DE decided to publish the official drop table for Void missions a few updates ago, they approached us to implement a "home" for the drop tables in the wiki. Given the high traffic here and the well used comment section we believe the Orokin Void page will serve as an official hub for the drop tables, this however had proven wrong quite quickly. We didn't get to update them in a timely manner; we made the page a mile long; we couldn't decide between using tabs or collapse/expand; 50% of the comment section turned out to be rants about how inaccurate these tables are; we couldn't find a best way to implement the tables for PS4; the list goes on and on.

This has to be fixed sooner or later. Looking at how quickly the forum updates and how they can actually be validated by DE staffs, it's pretty obvious we can't create something that is "official" here. While we can't update the tables quickly, using mediawiki and html codes we need to create something that is better than the one in the forums, that is: looks good, works well, and easy to update.

Void drop tables had gone through a few iterations, but we can never seem to find a compromise among the whole community. Some readers seek practicality while some prefer better looking tables. This blog aims to find a middle ground between both, to find a finalized format that will last for a long time.

So far I have two potential solutions in mind:

Inline-block cellular table

The main feature of this format is that each item cells will move itself according to what resolution your screen is using, minimizing the space wasted in traditional lists. On top of the table are 6 buttons that will teleport you to the desired section when pressed, and because all tables are still visible in one page, you can still use Ctrl-F to find the desired item. (Though I don't know why you want to do that since we have those drop locations all listed in the individual weapons pages) Updating will be easier than ever since each entry only requires two inputs: weapon name|part name.

Since I like pros and cons, here are some dam pros and cons:

Cons:

  • Unsorted

Pros:

  • Swag
  • Straight forward to update: Every entry requires only two inputs.
  • Space efficient
  • Optimized for dynamic width (Fluid layout): Wide screen users will not see excessive unused space

Sortable table

Majority preferred the other option 00:06, September 29, 2014 (UTC)

With the amount of pros here you can tell I'm siding more towards the cellular table above, and there's a good reason for that. While this list format is sortable, each entry require 5 inputs, and because each row only contains one item it is very space inefficient. Wide screen users will see a lot of white space horizontally while the list keep expanding vertically. However, with this format we can use a sortable feature which allows readers to find items by whatever parameters they so desired.

Pros:

  • Sortable

Cons:

  • Relatively more tedious to update: Every entry requires 5 inputs.
  • Space inefficient: Not optimized for dynamic width, excessive unused space for wide screen users. List expands vertically.

Conclusion

There will be no voting to do here, as these are just concepts that are still subjected to change, though if there are little demands for sortable tables we will naturally side towards building on the Cellular one. So please leave a feedback below, tell us which one you prefer, what type of format would you consider as perfect, your ideas and what other attributes do you want to see in drop tables. Please keep in mind the two conditions:

  • Readers must be able to find items easily with Ctrl-F.
  • All tables must be displayed in one page.
