{{Icon|iron plate|2|Iron plate/ru{{!}}Железная пластина}}

Железная пластина

Opens the proper page and the hint is Russian. Technical 13 (talk) 15:09, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

creates on non-english pages an icon with titles like "Iron plate/de" or "Iron plate/ru" instead of localized "Eisenplatte" or "Железная плита" (ad-hoc translated via {{translation/XX|Iron plate}}). Wouldn't it be better to use the localized string as tooltip? This is a common scenario on all pages with infoboxes. - Well, after looking at the preview, I see that the russian translation seems to break something in the layout here (unexpected end of HTML "dd" element). Is that the reason why no auto-translation is used for icon tooltips? --M.C.S. (talk) 22:12, 21 May 2020 (UTC)
The reason is mostly that it wasn't there before I took over the wiki, and after I took over the wiki there were no requests for it. My concern for adding it now would be that the icon template is already rather expensive and adding the translation would make it even more expensive. Do you think the mouseover text is very important to have translated? -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 15:54, 22 May 2020 (UTC)

Text display options

Please modify the existing code above the <noinclude>…</noinclude> section to:

<div class="factorio-icon" style="background-color:#{{{color|929292}}};">{{#ifexist: File:{{ConvertName|{{{1}}}}}.png | [[File:{{ConvertName|{{{1}}}}}.png{{!}}32px{{!}}link={{#if: {{{3|}}} |{{{3}}}|{{{1}}}{{If language suffix}}}}]] | [[File:Placeholder icon.png{{!}}link=]] <includeonly><div style="display:none;">[[File:{{{1}}}.png{{!}}32px]]</div></includeonly>}}<div class="{{{icon-text-class|factorio-icon-text}}}">{{{2|}}}</div></div>

To allow other text such as level ranges to be entered into the template. eg:

Thanks, Technical 13 (talk) 15:07, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

The change is a formatting change and has nothing to do with being able to add other text into the template, so I don't quite get your reasoning. In my opinion making the numbers smaller like in your examples is actually worse than the standard formatting because it decreases the readability. Could you please further detail your reasoning? -- Bilka (talk) - Admin 15:59, 7 June 2017 (UTC)

doesn't fit in the div and looks much worse than the smaller text, in my opinion. Technical 13 (talk) 16:05, 7 June 2017 (UTC)
