Add plates and tiny piles

  • GregTech adds plates and tiny dust piles for most ores, maybe add them to the template. User:Jurrepur
    • Add them to the dusts parameter, they accept animations if I'm correct, otherwise feel free to add it. :) -- Jinbobo SysOp · BotOp · talk · contribs 15:19, 9 July 2013 (BST)
    • Remove plates from the ore infobox. Plates are components not raw resources and do not belong on the ore page. -- Jadedcat

Large image

  • How about adding a large image of what is iconic for the ore, for example, a large copper ingot for copper, a large uranium ore ( item) for uranium etcetera.
  • Also, making the section about the ore block optional since not all metals/minerals come from ores but they are alloys((invar,electrum), ore they are a byproduct of other ores (plutonium). Add then instead the possibility to tell how the metal/mineral is aquired.

  • Both of those sounds good, add them to the template and remember to update the doc. -- Jinbobo SysOp · BotOp · talk · contribs 14:17, 15 July 2013 (BST)
  • Image size guidelines -- 32x is the largest image size for the wiki images. The giant size images on the ore infoboxes are not streamlined or consistent. Jinbobo please revert these to the normal size images. 32x for infoboxes 16x for icons. I might be ok with 64x images at the top. But the current size is much too big. -- Jadedcat

Better Properties

maybe change the property section to look more like this:

for example copper:

|{{Grid|Copper Dust,Copper Plate}}  to  {{Grid|Copper Ingot (TE)|}}||{{Grid|Furnace|}} Furnace
|{{Grid|Copper Block (TE)}}  to  {{Grid|Copper Ingot (TE)|}}||{{Grid|Crafting Table,Furnace}} [[GregTech|GT]] Changes crafting to furnacing<br/>depending on config.
|{{Grid|Copper Ingot (TE),Copper Plate,Copper Block (TE)}}  to  {{Grid|Copper Dust|}}||{{Grid|Macerator,Pulverizer|}}  Macerator and Pulverizer
|{{Grid|Copper Ingot (TE)|}}  to {{Grid|Copper Plate|}}||{{Grid|Plate Bending Machine|}}  Plate Bending Machine
|{{Grid|Copper Ingot (TE)|}}  to {{Grid|Copper Block (TE)|}} ||{{Grid|Crafting Table,Compressor}} [[GregTech|GT]] Changes crafting to compressing<br/>depending on config.
|{{Grid|Copper Ingot (TE),Copper Block (TE)|}}  to {{Grid|Molten Copper|}}||{{Grid|Thermionic Fabricator|}}  Thermionic Fabricator
  • I'll have the rest of the team comment on this. -- Jinbobo SysOp · BotOp · talk · contribs 14:17, 15 July 2013 (BST)
  • How should we handle Mods that change behaviour like GT? Currently it is only GT that modifies, but what if more mods start changing this? This could turn into a monster.
    • If there is a way to let the description change with the picture, you can write the mods that are compatible with that way behind each machine. For example with storage blocks, have 1 slide with a crafting table and the text "Others" and one slide with a Compressor and the text "GregTech (Depens on Config)" Jurrepur 16:48, 16 July 2013 (BST)
  • I don't really see the point as only one mod really causes these massive changes. I think it would best be put on a "GregTech Changes" page , however if it can be done in a way that does not distort the infobox and it looks streamlined and consistent I am fine with it. -- Jadedcat
