: Looks good! In the future, for picking a color for the banner, I found [http://www.colorpicker.com/45C221 ColorPicker.com] quite useful. I'm going to add an extra field to all the info card templates where we can put fields that are used only on a few pages.

Infocards

Really love all the infocard templates, thanks for adding those! :D -- BenWo (talk) 13:47, 25 May 2014 (CEST)

Thank you! I think it adds more uniformity to the wiki, which makes it look neater and more professional. If you have any comments or suggestions, please share them. Or if you see places that can be improved, please do! Virtlink (talk) 13:58, 25 May 2014 (CEST)
Yeah nice infocards :D , btw the documentation can also be added to the template page with {{doc}}. Oh and there's also a category called Wikistyle templates, maybe you can add new templates to this category :) TheGreenkey (talk) 21:05, 25 May 2014 (CEST)
Thanks, I didn't know that! Will look into it. Virtlink (talk) 21:46, 25 May 2014 (CEST)

Maybe we should add an icon showing that the crafting can be done in the player's inventory, where applicable. As it is now, it looks almost like the recipes can only be done in the assembly machines. While this is true for items like the engine unit, it creates some ambiguity. I can't think of a good way of showing this though. WiduX (talk) 21:01, 25 May 2014 (CEST)

Perhaps the hand icon that is also present in the game, indicating that you can craft this by hand? Virtlink (talk) 21:45, 25 May 2014 (CEST)

Derp, why didn't I think of that? That works very well. WiduX (talk) 21:53, 25 May 2014 (CEST)

I've added the Template:Technology infocard template. Please feel free to make modifications if you'd like it to be different before it is implemented. WiduX (talk) 21:55, 25 May 2014 (CEST)

Looks good! In the future, for picking a color for the banner, I found ColorPicker.com quite useful. I'm going to add an extra field to all the info card templates where we can put fields that are used only on a few pages. Virtlink (talk) 21:59, 25 May 2014 (CEST)
