Also I don't think it should have it's own wiki or discord etc. its just a tool, whats the last time SM64 editor had all of this.
I also think the opposite of: "then have multiple download sources from various people that offer to host?" i think it would be better to just host on the website and multiple people share a link of it.
Why wouldnt you want it to have its own wiki? I wasnt saying we shouldnt add the information to the Origami64 wiki, just that also working on a centralized wiki dedicated to SR would be beneficial.
This may be just a tool, but it looks like its going to be more extensive than any tools we have available for PM64 at the moment, that means more documentation, and more information that needs to be easily accessible if we want more people to get involved. Having a centralized area for people to easily access this information would help more people learn to work with SR and make things they want to make.
Same with having a discord, or a subreddit. Anything that provides an easy way for people to keep up to date with things and ask questions is a positive thing, paper mario has a pretty obsessive following and Ive seen a lot
of interest pop up in the community for something like this. A lot of people are really excited about it.
And my suggestion about hosting was pretty tame, having a lightweight frontend is a good thing, having redundant download hosts is a good thing. Just putting my two cents in. Dont know what Clover intends to do with it.
Also, SM64 editor doesnt have its own wiki, no. Its actually kinda hard to find documentation on it, which is what im talking about. There are large communities based around SM64 hacks, with discords, forums, and overarching wikis though. Thats why I went ahead and made the discord and subreddit, and probably a minimal wiki through the subreddit eventually. It doesnt have to be the only source of information, just trying to help people to find SR and learn to work with it once it comes out
