Can you post a link to where you saw the Mind Shield listed (video/image)? Hobbes 21:22, 20 September 2012 (EDT)

Sorry, but only in multiplayer. I saw it one of PAX videos, i think part one. Also there was EM Cannon in GramTV video. And costs for firestorm (157$, 15 elerium, 31 Alloys, 2 computers and 1 power source.). Also, these can be reduced numbers because he had 77 on satellites, when we know they cost a 100 at the start. I don't think there were any other videos which showed these numbers or that advanced tech - Beltorn 01:37, 22 September 2012 (EDT)


Template

Any given item has several entries in various screens. Trying to create a format that will cover all relevant data with corresponding link backs. This is a work in progress so any advice is appreciated. Granted this is rather rough and ugly, but I'm learning wikicode as I go and basing a lot of it off trial and error from what others have done. Link codes are purposefully broken to not add this page in accidentally. ~ Drakalu 16:35, 25 September 2012 (EDT)

I don't think we should have one template for all item types. But rather one for weapons one of armour and so on...... playing the demo we only have 6 pieces of data of a weapon. Effective Range (Short), Base Damage (3), Critical Chance(10%), Critical Damage(4), the Tactical Info (-The assault rifle and its variants are the only primary weapons XCOM rookies can use) and an Image.
I suggest we have a similar layout on the template tables as in-game.--Kokkan 03:15, 26 September 2012 (EDT)
A quick example of how it can look.
NAME
IMAGE TACTICAL INFO
  • Effective Range
  • Base damage
  • Critical Chance
  • Critical Damage
Alrighty, I agree that we need to have one for weapons, armor and other equipment. I'd like to see the above template at the top of a weapon page, and as close to the ingame experience as possible - but there's a ton more information (other stats, special weapon abilities) that will need to be also later in the future, so the template might as well start providing for that possibility.
