Talk:Alpafant Meat

From Pine Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
  • More importantly, and unless this item can spawn by itself, the choice of words "Renewable Clusters" in the infobox for this type of food seems to be inappropriate. Some good alternatives could be "Dropped by Alpafant" or "Dropped on death", which seems more accurate to me. -- Wikiscout (talk) 00:08, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
  1. Yep that changed with Beta 2 and wasn't updated here. I thought I had fixed it everywhere, but must have overlooked this one. A lot of other resource pages don't have their crafting pages up to date, because a lot of ideas were added without adding them to the resources. It's on my todo list to go over all Ideas in Crafting (which to my knowledge contains all idea template that were added to the wiki) and correct all resources at once, but feel free to fix whatever you stumble upon.
  2. Yes you are right. That's probably also an issue for the other meat that only drop from critters and for Leafdough which only drops from item boxes. I added "Renewable Clusters" as a default "Source" to the Material and Food infoboxes, that need to be overwritten, if an item is an exception from it.

Furthermore, and in addition to items dropping solely from item boxes, some items like Puffle Egg can both drop on death and be a Renewable Cluster. I'm not sure on how to implement this in the infox template without making it over complicated and given my very limited knowledge of wiki code I fear to hurt the wiki by trying to do so. I guess it's one more thing to add to your to do list! ;)

Just try it out and make use of the preview feature, before you save it. You don't need to change it in the infobox template, but only in the infobox usage on the individual resource pages (e.g. with | Source = Text like for Stiffrope), so you can't break too much by it. And if you do, you can still revert/undo it, or I'll do it later when I notice it. The only pages that might break a lot are Template pages that are used by a lot of other pages or the page for the Interactive Map.

I just did that and it works as expected on this article. I would have done the same for Leafdough but I miss the item ID number and MaxSizeDrop, so the edit would not have been very informative/meaningful. However, it wasn't feasible at all for Puffle Egg. I believe it's because there is only one Source in the template where it would need two (both Renewable Clusters and Dropped on death) and at this point I don't feel confident enough to risk a potentially hurtful edit in the Template page.

Even partial information is helpful. Not everyone knows everything. Like for example one person might know the Item-ID for Leafdough, but doesn't add it, because they don't know the MaxStackSize. While at the same time another person knows the MaxStackSize but not the Item-ID and chooses not to add it. All Parameters to the Infoboxes are optional. Even a blank {{PineInfobox/Material}} is valid, and displays the title and the type, and tries to automatically find the item icon and the glossary image based on the page's name. The Item-ID is probably even irrelevant for 99% of the users (but some might want to use it to cheat).
We don't really need separate source parameters in the template, we can fill the parameter we have with anything we want. So the easiest is just to fill it with two things separated with a comma, or if we really want it to be on separate lines we can force it with a <br/>. But we can also do fancy stuffs like giving it a list <ul><li>Source 1</li><li>Source 2</li></ul> (though that looks bad because of the right text-allignment, but that can be fixed easily).
