Notes (2008)[edit]

Not knowing how to set/edit a new Infobox Template, and seeing how we are creating equipment as a project this month, I was wondering if one of you wiki-gods could make it.

I'm not a gun nut, so what would be important data items to include in the infobox? Name, image, image caption, manufacturer, cost, weight, and TL are standard items. Should there be anything else? Tjoneslo 00:29, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Ammo type(s) and size. Footnotes of course. Other than that I am pulling up blanks (pun intended). I'm not a weapon nut either. Rycharde 02:01, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
5mm Revolver
Group: Pistol, Slug
Tech Level TL–5
Size 0.1
Weight 0.3
Cost 100
Ammo 5mm Bullets
Manufacturer Instellarms

How about ammo weight, ammo capacity, concealment, volume, recoil? Dcorrin 14:58, 7 March 2008 (UTC)

is this the final version? Rycharde 18:11, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
No, I am seeking feedback. This is a first attempt. I personally think we should drop size and replace it with concealment, add ammo capacity, and possibly a zero-g flag. Dcorrin 19:24, 7 March 2008 (UTC)
Gotcha. I have a couple of instances out there. Search for "gauss" and "warhammer". I'll update them after you complete the template. I do agree with the additions you've mentioned, and possibly more, though I'm not one to give ideas on this. Far from a weapons-guru. Rycharde 22:49, 8 March 2008 (UTC)

Notes (2018)[edit]

The group parameter seems to be a random collection of entries. I recommend using the weapons groups as presented in the T5 Rules:

Sounds very reasonable.
