AoD missions[edit source]

It would be great if someone with more know-how than me could add the DSC faction icon to this template, to be applied to the DSC tutorial missions. Arbiter82 (talk) 23:12, 16 October 2018 (UTC)

Done. It actually isn't as complex as I thought it was - this template uses Faction .png icons, so you can use either DSC Starfleet as code or just DSC (I've redirected the icon page to this as it's shorter). --PiralDorrm (talk) 07:14, 17 October 2018 (UTC)

Category[edit source]

Could someone put this in Category:Templates? KarikaCommunicator 19:49, 14 November 2011 (UTC)

Done. Eyes User-Eyes-Sig.png 05:55, 15 November 2011 (UTC)

Faction icons[edit source]

Some mission lists have the faction icons before them, which are useful but they're a pain to write out all the time. Can someone insert this code at the start. It adds a third variable where we can type the faction icon name (i.e. FedRomKDF) and it will add the icon for it (but only if the field is specified).

{{ #if:{{{3|}}} | [[File:Faction {{{3}}}.png|24px|{{{3}}}]] |}}

When it is in place, it might be good to have more intuitive or simpler naming of those icons to make it easier to use quickly.Scientifictheory (talk) 20:45, 7 January 2018 (UTC)

Edit: Might be good to add this table in the meantime for reference;

Added. Also, you can now make changes to that template. --Damixon (talk) 13:35, 10 January 2018 (UTC)
Thanks, much obliged.Scientifictheory (talk) 14:23, 10 January 2018 (UTC)

Allies[edit source]

Regarding the new "and allies" icons. I had a thought regarding this the other day that it may be simpler, given how we have 3 illegibly small icons on them now, that it may be simpler to have a plus symbol instead. So A Fed icon with a plus in the corner would stand for Federation and Federation aligned without the need to show independently the TOS, ROM and DOM symbols. A single plus sign would be a lot clearer to see at a glance, given the size of these icons. The cross-faction icon could also be just the Fed and KDF icons with a plus in the corner.Scientifictheory (talk) 08:54, 23 July 2018 (UTC)

For mission icons, sure. However, I think this look fine on ship pages: https://sto.gamepedia.com/Lethean_Oniros_Pilot_Escort. EDIT: The problem is that non-regular visitors need to be able to recognize this icons. Starfleet sign with a plus may not mean much to them. --PiralDorrm (talk) 09:22, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
Here, I've uploaded icons with pluses and added them to mission template. --PiralDorrm (talk) 09:32, 23 July 2018 (UTC)
