About new templates "Min/?body?"

Hi XZise, I've recently created 17 new templates named Min/**body**looking like that:


I've made it for every celestials bodies. These templates are used in:

I've also created a new line in the Infobox/Location looking like this:

Reference Planet


Yeah I got it, but there are a few things: First those Min/... templates aren't necessary (see my User:XZise/Min, which works for all bodies) except for Min/KSC. And even for KSC, that template name doesn't tell you what it does. It's also adding a table in a table. I've updated {{Infobox/Location}} which now uses the technique from my User:XZise/Min mockup. It's also allowing you to set the area to KSC, like your {{LocalisationOn}}.
Additionally placing it directly into the text does distract from the reading flow. That's why the infobox is on the right. Now there are some places which don't have that infobox, so there your template(s) should be converted to infoboxes.
And lastly I was confused because “Localisation” does usually mean for me the process of translating something into another language. — xZise [talk] 07:34, 1 August 2014 (CDT)
Thank you for your modifications, but can you add these templates to the Infobox/Location code:
Min/Biome/*** because I've seen your modifications and it doesn't use the templates "Min/***"
And there's an other possibility for your User:XZise/Min:
[[File:Tiny{{{body}}}.png|20px|none]] || [[{{{body}}}]] </nowiki>
About User:XZise/Min: This is not required, because it fetches automatically the image used in the infobox of a celestial body. Also {{Body data/full name}} is more advanced than only adding the language code to the body name. For example in Runway/ru the name Kerbin is in Cyrillic and English given.
And I've got a question: What is the purpose of the biome … things? … templates? — xZise [talk] 11:05, 1 August 2014 (CDT)
That's for the "KSC 2 for example: the location will be "Highlands"
How about that? I've updated {{Infobox/Location}} to support the new syntax from {{Place data}}. And {{Place data}} also supports the biomes from Kerbin (B/<Biome>). KSC 2 also uses that. Also {{Infobox/Location}} now can replace {{LocalisationOn}} mostly. The version number and altitude are not optional currently (they display Unknown) but this saves us to maintain two more or less identical templates. — xZise [talk] 09:01, 2 August 2014 (CDT)


Can you add a few like ORS (bundled with KSPI) And raster prop manager (bundled with a couple of mods) ( This is my first time asking you in person please correct me if I am wrong) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joshwoo69 (talkcontribs) 07:26, 18 August 2014‎ (UTC)

Ehr sorry, but if you want to add something you can do it yourself (if the syntax is not correct or so, it's fine somebody more experienced will fix it, also use the preview to verify that it looks good) or ask on the talk page.
If it's about dependencies in Addons (like ModuleManager and toolbar): We don't have to list every example where this happen. It's intended to inform readers that there are plugins which come with others and that you have to be aware of that. — xZise [talk] 15:21, 24 August 2014 (CDT)
