Several issues[edit source]

  1. Shouldn't berries be listed as Fruits?
  2. Shouldn't Meat be incorporated in the current page structure? Currently there are no thumbs for meat items, only a comparison table, which is outside of the comparison tables section.
  3. I am not sure why we need entries for Raw Cow_Steak Cooked Cow Steak and Burned Cow Steak, instead of covering it by single entry Cow Steak.

1. yes they should 2. yes it should have thumbs 3. because they have different stats and effects similar to rotten fruits/normal fruits

Comparison Tables[edit source]

Couple of questions concerning the Comparison Tables:

  1. Does the Energy values for each item, show per use Energy gain or total possible gain?
  2. Any objection if we combine all the tables together? this way we can use sort to compare all food types.

--AnotherArk (talk) 01:14, 9 October 2014 (UTC)

  1. probably for the whole item, but i didnt create these
  2. not a fan of that, but if you have an idea to combine them and keep the different "item classes"

2. sure easy enough:

k, i like this version, but maybe a spoiler around the whole table if it gets to big and a little note in cursive that explains the usage of the table (something like: klick in name to sort table etc)

Updating the tables[edit source]

I found this spreadsheet of values from 0.49/0.48, going by the edit history here i believe that those value are more uptodate. Couple of questions:

  1. Is there any objections if updated our table with the values here?
  2. any idea what is the nutritionalIndex?
  3. The current layout is a son of **** to maintain\update, will there be any problem if I replace it with template. So for example
Replacing this:
{| class="mw-collapsible sortable" style="width: 50%; box-shadow: 0px 0px 2px 2px DimGrey; border: 2px solid DimGrey; padding: 2px;"
|- style="background-color: DarkOrange; color: black;"
! Name
! data-sort-type="number" | Energy
! data-sort-type="number" | Water
! data-sort-type="number" | Stomach
! Uses
! Size
|- style="background-color: Gainsboro;"
| style="text-align: left;" | [[Red Berries]]
| style="text-align: right;" | 70 kcal
| style="text-align: right;" | 4 ml
| style="text-align: right;" | 40 ml
| style="text-align: center;" | 1 (100% each use)
| style="text-align: center;" | 1 Slot
|- style="background-color: Gainsboro;"
| style="text-align: left;" | [[Blue Berries]]
| style="text-align: right;" | 70 kcal
| style="text-align: right;" | 4 ml
| style="text-align: right;" | 40 ml
| style="text-align: center;" | 1 (100% each use)
| style="text-align: center;" | 1 Slot
|}
with this:
{{CompFood/start}}
{{CompFood|[[Red Berries]]|70 kcal|4 ml|40 ml|1 (100% each use)| 1 Slot}}
{{CompFood|[[Blue Berries]]|70 kcal|4 ml|40 ml| 1 (100% each use)| 1 Slot}}
{{CompFood/end}}

or

{{CompFood/start}}
{{CompFood|[[Red Berries]]|70|4|40|1 (100% each use)|1 Slot}}
{{CompFood|[[Blue Berries]]|70|4|40| 1 (100% each use)|1 Slot}}
{{CompFood/end}}

Except the syntax change, it will look and function identically, but also allow me to avoid anyone who want to update the info a lot of headache. --AnotherArk (talk) 22:46, 22 October 2014 (UTC)

simple templates are always good, but maybe a more general version that could also be used for weapon table etc--TheBlackDracula (talk)

I updated the template, and went over the values. It appears that this table is very well maintained and receives the 0.49 seal of approval.
As for the generic template. It is possible to make one that would take any number of parameters, even easier with little css (or even one that loads the values from the individual pages). But honestly at this point, it is quicker to do make a few of them with quick substations. Although if anyone want to, go ahead --AnotherArk (talk) 02:01, 25 October 2014 (UTC)
do you still gonna implement one single table?--TheBlackDracula (talk)
No, I am occupied with something else atm, if anyone else want to, then please go ahead.--AnotherArk (talk) 15:59, 10 December 2014 (UTC)
