What is the level with the most power eggs?

As the fuzzy ooze gets more and more expensive for little buddy to eat, wouldn't the levels also have more rewards? Im Half-expecting the level with the highest reward and the highest amount of power eggs obtainable in the level being one of the further levels. after playing through most of the game (late site 6/Final Boss) as of the moment I have roughly 18,000 power eggs with some given by Callie. I've noticed that most of the levels span from roughly 1,200 power eggs as a reward to 1,700 power eggs as a reward. While this is the majority of the power eggs that the player can obtain, theres also the singular power eggs or bundles of power eggs placed throughout the level.

Uh, I have no idea if you finished Alterna by the time I'm writing this, but I don't think there's more rewards as you go on. I also don't think that the highest reward comes from one of the later levels. I might be wrong, but if you still don't know by now, I'll check if you'd like!

All I have to say is Yes we should do thatGlitch♩ink (talk) 21:03, 13 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]
The decorations are already listed here: List of locker decorations in Splatoon 3, although they only say "Alterna" for how to get, and not the specific area. Maybe that table could be modified to include which area in Alterna.  GX_64 (talk)  03:25, 14 October 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Fancifying the list of sub-locations

In my opinion, just having a list of links doesn't look very good. I believe that using a table or flexbox module may give a nicer-looking presentation. Since it's a pretty big formatting change, I've created mockups below of how both options would look for the purposes of discussion and feedback.

Mockup of the flexbox idea (collapsed for page readability). Based on the "level list" template, it may look more sleek, but doesn't leave room for descriptions.
The template was NOT designed for this, so there are awkward parts like the Crater using the "No. " prefix instead of "Crater".
Additionally, a lack of standardized image dimensions is especially noticeable here, though this obviously wouldn't be a problem with non-placeholder images.
Mockup of the table idea (collapsed for page readability). Table is designed based on the Stages page.
It is arguably less flashy, but allows room for descriptions of each site in addition to being less of a pain to code on the backend.
Name Description

The Crater
The Crater is a location near Splatsville that serves as the "prologue" of Return of the Mammalians. Located above Alterna, the large hatch in the center of the Crater leads down a circular shaft directly above the Alterna Space Center that was presumably meant for the Spirit Lifter to launch out of.

Future Utopia Island
Future Utopia Island is the first site of Alterna. In addition to being the location of the Squid Sisters Camp, its most recognizable features are the multiple 3D-Printed Easter Island heads scattered about, some of which are in a half-printed state.

Cozy & Safe Factory
The Cozy & Safe Factory is the second site of Alterna. Its most recognizable features are its large silo-shaped storage tanks and cube-shaped 3D printers. The boss kettle of this site leads to the fight against Frye.

Cryogenic Hopetown
Cryogenic Hopetown is the third site of Alterna. Its most recognizable features are the large patches of slippery ice and the multiple "portable shelter" buildings. Uniquely, it has three points of connection to other sites, with the additional connection skipping to Eco-Forest Treehills.

Landfill Dreamland
Landfill Dreamland is the fourth site of Alterna. Its most recognizable features are the various large cargo containers and the submarine docked on the southern side of the island. There are also many piles of gravel strewn about the site. The boss kettle of this site leads to fight against Shiver.

Eco-Forest Treehills
Eco-Forest Treehills is the fifth site of Alterna. Its most recognizable feature are the crops growing inside glass casing on various parts of the main building. Uniquely, it has three points of connection to other sites, with the additional connection leading back to Cryogenic Hopetown.

Happiness Research Lab
The Happiness Research Lab is the sixth site of Alterna. It takes the appearance of multiple skyscraper-like buildings jutting out of the water, which can be traversed between using Ride rails. Its most recognizable features are the computer server racks seen inside the buildings, and the large fans on the sides of said buildings. The boss kettle of this site leads to the fight against Big Man.

Alterna Space Center
The Alterna Space Center is the final site of Alterna, and lies in the center of the dome. It contains various rocketry production facilities, and the Spirit Lifter itself, accessible by gantry. It is visible from almost anywhere in Alterna, and serves as a central landmark and final mission of Return of the Mammalians. Until all three Treasures are collected, it is covered in a massive patch of particularly sharp-looking Fuzzy Ooze.

Please note that these mockups are using placeholder images. The finalized version(s) would likely use images taken with Photo Mode, at least for the Crater and Alterna Space Center, and with standardized image sizes/aspect ratios.

Let me know what you think, which design you prefer, and suggest ways these could be made to look better!

I agree that an overhaul is needed. However, I would suggest the same design approach like the other story campaigns have.  Perfectionist  (talk) 15:21, 7 November 2022 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Just a question

Would it be okay if I added some Alterna stage gameplay to the stages pages? NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk) 20:18, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]

This might be more suited for Strategy Wiki (walkthroughs are currently being ported there). Unless you mean something completely different. Anemoia [Talk!] 20:28, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
That makes sense NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk) 20:32, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
Just wondering because some of the Splatoon 1 stages have gameplay videos NewSquidbeakSplatoon (talk) 20:33, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
If you'd like you can help by moving those to the aforementioned wiki. Here on Trig's page is a quick explanation of how it works. You can cut walkthroughs from Inkipedia pages and paste them on the appropriate Strategy pages. If the Inkipedia pages only have gameplay videos and no written walkthroughs, well... you can write them yourself if you feel like it. Anemoia [Talk!] 20:56, 9 September 2023 (UTC)Reply[reply]
