Template talk:Ability icons

From Star Trek Online Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Trait icons[edit source]

{{Trait icons}} doesn't display icons because it is redirected to {{Ability icons}}. The ability icon template expects one image from each faction. Traits have only one icon total - with one exception. Seduce has two icons: one for male and one for female. --Rear Admiral Twenty-Three, USS Galileo C 00:50, 9 March 2010 (UTC)

Icon arrangement[edit source]

I'd suggest having it arrange icons one below another, to limit text alignment issues in long overview sections of ability pages. See Reroute Power to Shields for an example. MikeWard1701 22:05, 17 July 2011 (UTC)

Update for Rom Icons[edit source]

Is anyone planning on updating the template so that it includes the Romulan icons? If not, I can probably get it done pretty quick. --LordTrekie (talk) 23:17, 8 July 2013 (UTC)

Update[edit source]

I added a line with faction colors below ability icons because new visitors probably won't know for which faction that icon exists. Especially if we add dominion in the mix. I can update it with purple color if someone creates No icon (Dominion).png, I don't know how to make that one. --Damixon (talk) 04:27, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

I created an icon for you, not sure how accurate it is compared to the rest. You'll want to try and make your line shift in size just like when the icons do though if you know how to make that happen. (see Template:Ability icons for what I'm talking about)--LordTrekie (talk) 17:18, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
I checked all articles using this template, and none of them is using an option to reduce the size of the icon so I removed it in favor of ability line making sense. Thanks for creating Dominion no icon. --Damixon (talk) 18:05, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
One last suggestion then if I may, add '|link=' to your ability line image, so that people don't end up accidentally clicking on it?--LordTrekie (talk) 18:16, 17 June 2018 (UTC)
Done, good idea. --Damixon (talk) 18:35, 17 June 2018 (UTC)

Proposed Change[edit source]

For those who weren't following this talk page, here is my proposed change to the template to get it to additionally see if there is a regular federation icon in case of non-existent TOS icon, instead of just saying one doesn't exist or using per-file redirects. link --LordTrekie (talk) 04:17, 26 June 2018 (UTC)

Looks good, I think we should implement it here. --Damixon (talk) 07:39, 26 June 2018 (UTC)
