This template is designed to be used to describe an item or machine, using a box of info.


To use, create a page in the infobox namespace by prepending Infobox: to the page you are trying to add an infobox to, so that the new pages is called Infobox:(whatever the page name is). Then, on the page, add the line {{:Infobox:Page_name}}. This will "copy" the infobox you create on Infobox:... to the page itself. Of course, replace Page_name with the name of the page.

As for the infobox on Infobox:..., start with the line: {{Infobox. Then, on the next few lines, start with the pipe character, |, then place a parameter, and set it equal to the value you wish it to be. Then, end the parameter lines with two curly-brackets. "}}", and the line <noinclude>[[Category:Infobox page]]</noinclude>.

Example working box:

|category = Logistics
|recipe=Time, 0.5 + Steel plate, 2 + Copper plate, 2
|required-technologies=Electric energy distribution 1
|producers=Manual + Assembling machine
<noinclude>[[Category:Infobox page]]</noinclude>

Additionally, the infobox will automatically translate. Just "copy" the infobox (the same way, from Infobox:...) to the page, as done for the English page. ({{:Infobox:Page name}})

If you need further help, contact a wiki admin or look at existing examples, on actual pages.

Recipe syntax

The "recipe" parameter should be used as follows:

|recipe = wood, 4 = wooden chest, 1


item1, quantity = output item, quantity.

Separate multiple items with +.


A list of valid parameters is provided below. Since this infobox is general purpose, not all must be used, however some are required. Required parameters are shown in red. Please be as descriptive as possible when making infoboxes.

Tip: This is a large table. After expanding, use CTRL + F in most browsers to search through this table easily.

Available Parameters

Parameter Value
category The category the object fits into, same as the inventory tabs. Valid choices are Logistics, Production, Intermediate products, Combat, Technology.
name The name of the object, default is the page name. Do not specify name if not necessary, to avoid translation issues.
icon Specify the icon of the object, give the name of the file without the extension. This is only necessary if the icon fails to display properly.
internal-name The internal name of the entity. Only use plain text here.
prototype-type The prototype type of the entity. Only use plain text here.
image An in-game image of the entity, without file extension (.png etc)
extra1 Add an extra row above all others, for misc purpose. Do not use templates here!
extra2 Add an extra row below all others, for misc purpose. Do not use templates here!
recipe The recipe of the object in normal mode. See recipe syntax above for more info.
total-raw The raw recipe of the object in normal mode. See recipe syntax above.
expensive-recipe The recipe of the object in expensive mode. See recipe syntax above for more info. Creates new tab in the infobox when used.
expensive-total-raw The raw recipe of the object in expensive. See recipe syntax above. Creates new tab in the infobox if expensive-recipe doesn't exist but expensive-total-raw does. It then shows the normal recipe and the expensive total raw in the expensive tab.
map-color The map color of the entity.
map-icon The map icon of the entity.
added-in The version the object was added into the game.

lifespan The lifespan of a deployed capsule in seconds.
expected-resources Resources expected to be dropped when this entity (tree/rock) is mined.
health The health points of the entity.
restores The amount of health the item restores.
resistance The elemental/physical resistances of the object. Resistances should be shown as such: point_resistance/10% Fire
