This box that has "Contents" written in it, automatically appears when there are more than 3 Headers on a page.(I think it was 3, if I remember that correctly.) A Header is for example ===Orc Young=== written somewhere on a page, or ==Orcs==. These are basically titles for orientation on a page.
The number of = defines the "level" of a header.
The Header ==Orcs== will be above the header ===Orc Warrior===.
The result of this is for example what you see on the Orcs page. There is the header orcs as point 4 in the box and the points Orc Young, Orc Warrior, etc. as 4.1, 4.2, etc.
If two headers have the same "level", they will count numbers. For example: ==Military Structure== is a "level" 2 header, because of the 2 = symbols.
==Military Tactics== is also a "level" 2 header.
Because of that, they count numbers. Military Structure is point 2, and Military Tactics is point 3.
If you would put a ===Orc Buildings=== somewhere between </nowiki>==Military Structure==</nowiki> and ==Military Tactics==, then we would have:
2. Military Structure
2.1 Orc Buildings
3. Military Tactics
I created such Headers on the Beasts page. You can now link to Beasts#Lindwurm.
(You can also force a "Contents" box to appear, even if there are less than 3 headers, if you write __TOC__ somewhere on the page or you can force it to never appear on a page if you write __NOTOC__.)
Did you take the screenshot via steam? If you can't upload the screenshot on the wiki, but you can publish/upload it on steam, then please do that. (Click on the game in the steam library, scroll down until you see your screenshots. Click "Show Screenshot Collection". Now choose the screenshot and click upload/publish. Choose "Public" as option for who is allowed to see it. Afterwards click "Show online" on the next page click "Share" and copy and post the link please.)
If that also doesn't work, then report back and we will find another way.
Can you explain what exactly you mean to say with the images in the "Availability" column? Does a peasant mean, that it's available in villages and the soldier that it's available in noble house settlements? If so, what does the Orc image mean then?
I think I don't completely understand this, but I like the idea. :D
Also there is no such things as 'Throwing Net' and new 'Acid Flask' in Wiki. Maybe it has sense to add a new category for these things. Acid Flask appeared quite recently, but Net is in the game from the very beginning.
Good Idea. Your message arrives just in time, I was planing to add the acid flask tonight, and you take the screenshots for me :) You are right we need a new category for those items (which are equiped like shields). I'm going to take a look to the "accessories" category and how to refactor it.
Edit : Antidote added tonight as well. How may we suppress a category from a page ? In fact bandages, antidote, etc, are consumables. Should we create a sub-category of accessories ?
By the way anyone knows about holy water ? Just find it in consumables images.
Thank you for creating these pages, I'm sure they will be very useful. If you continue, please don't forget about strange mushrooms, which is an accessory too. I already uploaded all the images for it in wiki.
I think it would be confusing if net and flask were in acessory category, because they are not equpped in accessory, but in shield slot as you mentioned yourself. They need their own category. Don't know about a proper name for it.
I think that everything that goes into the accessory slot qualifies as "category accessory item". Regardless if it is consumed (poison) or permanent (sergeant sash). But as Todeos suggested, a sub-category is very well possible and might be a good idea. (I fear that not all people will read the note at the bottom and will think this item is permanent. I am one of these people. When I first got some Goblin Poison, I though it was permanent and used it the first fight after getting it... I was quite dissapointed ;D )
I will leave that up to you two to decide. If you two have decided and maybe need any help with the sub-category stuff, just let me know. :)
What do you mean with surpress a category from a page?
Net and Flask I think can either be added to the Ranged_Weapons or also get their own category/page. But what would be a good name for this category? Any ideas? Maybe we could add a third point there: Weapons that says something like "Consumable weapons" if that sounds ok?
About the execution of your idea, I can think of two ways:
1) The way you do it. Everyone who does want to can add an entry to the page and separates his comment from the previous comment. Your/This way has the great advantage that everyone (regardless if registered on wikia or not) can write something. Problem is that the page would maybe get really long and when adding something new someone has to scroll down and maybe accidentally edits/deletes the comment of someone else. (That's not really a problem though, even with my little experience I can recover such an error quite easily.) (Of course, there are also ways to code/program something that allows to add a comment without actually editing the page on your own, but I lack the skills to create something like that...)
2) Everyone creates a blog post with what he wants to say and gives it the category "Love Letter" or something like that. I then create a page that automatically collects all these blog posts and lists them one after another. Positive: Everyone only has to care about his own comment and it will be sorted automatically. Problem: Only registered users can write blog posts.
What do you think is the better way?
Anyway, I will add a link on the mainpage.
Looking fine from a wiki point of view also. ;) Just some minor problem with the last section text header aligning directly next to the image, but that doesn't hurt in any way. Maybe I can find a way to fix that.
Thanks a lot for sharing! Your students can be proud of the teacher they have! :)
I highly, strongly, with all my brain cells disagree with what they say about archers over there. I don't want, however, to trample on other ppl work and/or ideas. How can I edit/create/show other people that there is an alternative, if not a outright better way to build their archers?
well, there are some ways. As the one who added these builds is not a registered user, the chances of him coming back and reading a comment where you explain why he is wrong are quite low, I think.
But still, the best thing to do would be that, I think: Create your own archer entry and explain in the comments why this and that from the other build is wrong. Even if the original creator will not read this comment, other visitors will do.
Variety is the key and the more builds there are, the more possibilities the people have to choose from, after thinking what they themselves think to be right. And maybe you convince them to not build their archers like that with the explanation you give in the comments.
There is a event when a battle brother has the dumb trait removed by a historian or monk. I was wondering if this is reoccurring or only happens once. My favorite warrior has the dumb trait and failed in becoming smarter so I wanted to know if he would get another shot at it. Let me know if this happened to you.
I read that monks and historians can remove the dumb trait from multiple brothers throughout a playthrough.
I also know that when the event fails, the teacher get's disgruntled.
A situation like yours has not happened to me personally so far, but from what I think, read and have seen in the game so far, I think that it is possible that the event will reoccur (maybe through a historian, but maybe also through the same monk), but as with all events in the game, this will take its time.
