Oceanic Boxes Navbox

Oceanic Boxes sounds better than plain old Sail Loot/Booty/etc. Unless others say otherwise, go with it. -- S624 (talk) 20:34, 19 June 2019 (UTC)

Thx for feedback, navbox went live --WardPhoenix (talk) 12:58, 21 June 2019 (UTC)

Goals navbox

Nice idea! I might consider putting the Achievements page there too. -- Djonni (talk) 13:38, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

Thanks, I noticed it could be useful when jumping on the gameplay page of Lab and others. But I am a little at loss at what extacly should be included in that page or what name it should have! --WardPhoenix (talk) 13:49, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
It might work better to collapse everything after temple completion into one "Post-Temple" group, Rayder than have lines with just one or two items. There are perhaps a few more things for Pre-Temple, too, like Pantheons and Pets 😊 I'll keep thinking... -- Djonni (talk) 13:59, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Ideabox, of course, too! -- Djonni (talk) 14:00, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
Guilds? -- Djonni (talk) 14:03, 9 October 2019 (UTC)
I don't know where we could put guilds there even if i can understand some would consider it an objective. Tried to make an alternative version of the navbox.--WardPhoenix (talk) 14:12, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

And Guilds could go in divine activities there I think! And I know a lot of gods and goddesses really enjoy roleplaying in the forums, but I don't know if we have anything about that on the wiki πŸ€” -- Djonni (talk) 18:28, 9 October 2019 (UTC)

I didn't consider adding roleplay because it isn't an official mechanic of the game, added guilds and pantheons though. If the navbox is ok like this it could go live. --WardPhoenix (talk) 12:12, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
I can't decide if I think Creatures should go in Main Goals or in Collectibles... πŸ€” Hmmm. You collect gold bricks to complete your temple. So, bricks are the collectible, temple's the goal. With creatures it's not so clear, but I think that you collect pairs to unlock the lab... which in my mind makes them the collectible, with the lab as the goal? What do you think?
Once players have a little more insight into the glyphs and words, I suspect we'll have a proper page for them, and that can be added to the Collectibles group.
Other than little tweaks like that, I think it's good to go live! Looks great to me! -- Djonni (talk) 12:39, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
In my mind, Collectibles are items collected endlessely. Creatures are not a collectible because unlike gold, gold brick and wood, they aren't collected anymore after the objective is reach.(I think? My Akane is not there yet). I would have added boss part to collectibles but since it's on the same page as the lab, it would make a redundant link. Will make this live later. --WardPhoenix (talk) 14:02, 10 October 2019 (UTC)
Well, actually, once you've collected 1000 pairs to unlock the lab, you then need another 100 pairs to raise your lab boss (and an additional 100 pairs for each time you want to raise a new boss). But, either way, take it live when you're ready :) -- Djonni (talk) 14:32, 10 October 2019 (UTC)

God template test

Hey! I made a breaking change to the test template. |highlighthex= now does take a # in front, because that's the sane thing to do (I've decided). So, in your test template, this line: |highlighthex=b2b2ff becomes |highlighthex=#b2b2ff :)

I've been playing with the default color scheme. As much as I'd enjoy making the template an interesting color, having a look at how some users set up their page, and since the template now is just plain white, I'm going to go with a very plain, boring, neutral light grey. Still fiddling with it. -- Djonni (talk) 15:28, 14 October 2019 (UTC)

I've also (finally) implemented |nocat=yes so that you can turn off the automatic categorisation while testing! -- Djonni (talk) 07:12, 15 October 2019 (UTC)
Thanks for testing the background color parameters. I've changed the template so that if you set datacolor, but not imagecolor or subheadercolor, they'll grab and use the datacolor background. I think that's what anyone would realistically expect! -- Djonni (talk) 12:37, 16 October 2019 (UTC)
Your welcome! I'm just updating the infobox so you have another example to look at when testing the template! --WardPhoenix (talk) 11:19, 17 October 2019 (UTC)
Hey 😊 FYI, I renamed the |customheader= parameter to |customsection=, because I thought it was clearer with all the |customheader(n)= parameters. What do you think, better to name it |customheader= or |customsection=? -- Djonni (talk) 18:17, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Personally i think |customsection= for the main header is better because it's less confusing when you use the |customheader(n)= for the "subheader". --WardPhoenix (talk) 19:14, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Good! That's exactly what I thought.
So, this is in reply to your last message at User talk:Djonni/Template sandbox#WardPhoenix's Feedback...
Regarding the missing label+data issue, a row can either be a header (eg, |customheader1=) or a label+data. So if you set |customheader(n)=, the corresponding |customlabel(n)= and |customdata(n)= will be ignored. That's why you're seeing the headers in those rows instead of the data! 😊 -- Djonni (talk) 19:28, 28 October 2019 (UTC)
Oh it suddenly works better... that was confusing xD --WardPhoenix (talk) 09:40, 29 October 2019 (UTC)
