Yes, for example, Pelica have Clouds of Haunted Green, which Green Anomaly (Megas) and Exotics (Wierd) Weather descriptor, but behaves very different, and its additional effect for Bubbles. You are right - each biome have own Exotification - though I do not like this word. May be Planetary Glitch?
tho if its already used, lets start and use it.
I will finalize few systems I have materials / prepared their stuff to be documented, and their planets, and then I will start to draft those pages as separate, with biome pages referencing relevant exotifications, and vice versa.
Thamalandis
Neither type of Exotification has enough material to varant their own page (unless you mean the planet subtypes, those can have their own page). They should all be subsections of the main dislodged page in their own segment and then link to said planet subtypes.
AbstractBlackStork
sounds good, then things which are global probably on same or even different "brother" page - which is chromatic effects (its safe consider spectrum shift as more rare chromatic effect), because those are not biome specific, and can have quite rich subgroups / internal classifications
Thamalandis
We do not fully know yet if most Exotifications are biome specific - unless datamined. That some are discovered unique for now (or as rare as 1-3 instances) doesn't exclude the other. Which is why it is safer to sort them by the type of corruption in general and just mention the observed biomes inside of them.
The Chromatic shift "appears" more common since we got more than 3 types of them, thus Exotification happens in 3 types.
Pulsating stoneshrubs mega exots (indestructible) were found for one biome, for irradiated we had mega exotic underwater vegetation and of course verdants. All of these have "chroma shift" as a possible effect. Thus even though they have 3 different Exotification targets they have a shared effect, the color change, as a possibility. It does not violate the idea of Exotification to have several biomes affected by chromatic shifts.
It could define the general structure of the page, the more common ones come first. So the first effect talked about would be the chromatic effect, explaining the several origins and thus wide distribution of partial chromatic shift on different biomes, then the bubbles (as many Verdants seem partially affected, it's quite prevalent etc.
As mentioned each effect should link back to its origin of Exotic to highlight that part.
Important in creating the segments: Users don't scroll. Don't separate information that goes together. Keep it in well-fed packages of information.
AbstractBlackStork
Wait, but chromatic effects are not linked to Exotification. They can appear without any Exotification syndromes appear.
thus is suggest differentiate terms:
  • (Atlas) Corruption - General term which combine:
  • Exotification (assets from exotic planets on different biomes)
  • Chromatic Fog Effects/Spectral shifts (Do you mean we should put it under Exotification too? they are not biome specific, though I think Spectrum effects are another category/section than Exotification)
  • Anomalous Weather (which have no equivalent even on exotics, while do bear same Weather descriptor - the behaviour is completely different)
Pls cfm/deny if I should categorize those this way, or we will use Exotification as an aggregate term of for both chroma effects, weather and exotic planet assets appearance
This source edit is seriously broken for me, I type blind right now. I write black on black down here while it pops up above. Whatever DDF used here kinda broke my browser. Sidetopic aside...
I'd say we use and show examples of what we mean to ensure no false double meanings are used. You propose an effect and I cross-reference them on their exotic types to see if they are tied to them. That way we can sort through them bit by bit to decide on them.
