DragonBox

From Dragon Mania Legends (DML) Wiki

SUGGESTION

Make sure to first read the Dragon Article Model as it outlines the process for creating articles.

The DragonBox is fairly complex and is made up of over 60 parameters which become more complex over time. This means that reading it thoroughly might become tedious. As such, provided you do not have the patience for it, we recommend picking an appropriate Dragon from this category's subcategories (near the bottom of the page) and then use it as the basis for creating a similar Dragon. Since some parameters are not used by all Dragons, the necessary parameters that you may need to use are already selected for the type of Dragon you have chosen, after which you can return to this article and read the documentation for said parameters.

The DragonBox is a powerful template that is able to generate between 50% and 100% of the contents of Dragon articles. Aside from manually-written information needed to generate content, the DragonBox uses other variables and templates to determine a Dragon's characteristics and the color of the box itself.

To get a general grasp of how templates work, visit MediaWiki Templates and the Manual of Style. The DragonBox will be fully explained in a way that anyone, regardless of their knowledge of wiki software, is able to use. If the explanation below is unclear or insufficient, or if you want to suggest modifications toward the betterment of this template, feel free to contact the maintainers of this template, namely Star Warden and Soukupmi.

Calling a template on any page is done by adding the name of the template between double braces: {{DragonBox}}. Note that, in this article, the term "base value" is used to represent those stats, characteristics and attributes a Dragon has at Level 1. These values are displayed on the Base Codex Entry of Dragons that are housed on the islands and not of those that have just hatched from an egg and are still in the Hatchery.

Parameters[edit]

% USAGE

  • Extremely Low < 5
  • Low 5-15
  • Medium Low 15-25
  • Medium 25-45
  • Medium High 45-55
  • High 55-65
  • Extremely High > 65
  • Parameters are built-in segments that produce different content depending on their given value. When using any other word, which is not defined as a parameter in the template, on the position of a parameter, the template will simply ignore it.

    To call any parameter, add it before the last double braces, making sure to add a | before each parameter. To assign a value to a parameter, add the equal sign after it and add the value after the sign. The beginning of the template and its end, as well as each parameter, will all be on a separate line. See the examples.

    Note that some parameters only respond to certain values while other parameters respond to any value. "Built-in Values" represent those values to which the parameter will respond and must be manually inserted while "Default Values" represent the contents the parameter will generate if no value is attributed to it. The former will not be functional, unless it is given a value while the latter will be functional, regardless if a value is given or not, unless they are overridden by other parameters.

    The position of the parameters inside the template, when creating articles, must be strictly respected as per below.

    switch[edit]

  • Usage: None
  • Status: Inactive
  • Examples: None
  • Description: Used when an article should not use the {{DragonSwitch}} template.
  • In the very beginning of each article, the DragonBox generates the contents of an incorporated template called the {{DragonSwitch}}, which is built using DPL, a content-reporting tool. The function of this template is to retrieve the preceding and succeeding Dragons in alphabetical order, acting as a navigational bar between articles. This function is done automatically, without the need of user intervention. However, should the necessity to negate this template arises, simply attributing any value to the switch parameter will disable the display of DragonSwitch.

    previous[edit]

  • Usage: Extremely Low
  • Status: Semi-Active Usage
  • Example: Abyss Dragon
  • Description: Indicates the Dragon preceding the current one.
  • As it was explained in the previous section, the DragonSwitch automatically retrieves the preceding and succeeding Dragons. However, in very rare cases, usually with Dragons that are at the end of the alphabetical order, the name of the preceding Dragon will have to be manually written. In this case, simply write the full name of the Dragon.

    next[edit]

  • Usage: Extremely Low
  • Status: Semi-Active Usage
  • Example: Zombie Dragon
  • Description: Indicates the Dragon succeeding the current one.
  • Uses the same mechanics as previous, but for the succeeding Dragon.

    unknown[edit]

  • Usage: None
  • Status: Inactive
  • Example: None
  • Description: Used when no information about the Dragon is known.
  • In those cases in which no information about the Dragon is known, attributing any value to this template will override the color scheme, profile and most parameters in the DragonBox. Used when the name of a Dragon is officially released to the public, but no other information about it is available.

    special[edit]

  • Usage: Extremely Low
  • Status: Semi-Active Usage
  • Example: Ares Dragon
  • Description: Overrides the calling of currency icons that occurs when multiple conditions are met by other parameters.
  • Used when a Dragon has a completely different cost and no other combination of parameters is able to generate said cost. This is an extremely rare occurrence and more than probably it will need staff intervention to precisely determine whether it is truly needed or not. Normally, the icon of a currency is automatically generated next to the value of cost when certain conditions are met by a combination of the parameters cost, available, method, base, second, and third. Sometimes various notes can or must be added next to cost, thus it must be overridden.

    codex[edit]

  • Usage: Extremely High
  • Status: Active Usage
  • Examples: All regular Dragons
  • Description: Displays the text inside the Codex Entry of the Dragon.
  • The entry must be manually written, exactly as it is in the game, respecting the formatting and any additional symbol. This parameter can not be used with Boss Dragons and Clan Dragons.

  • Status: Active Usage
  • Possible Values: Common, Uncommon, Rare, Epic, Legendary, Divine, Boss, ?
  • Description: Indicates the rarity of the Dragon.
  • Simply pick the rarity of the Dragon from the possible values or the ? value if the rarity is currently unknown. The parameter does not work for Boss Dragons. The rarity of a Dragon can be found on its Codex Entry or when inspecting the Dragon inside its Habitat.

  • Usage: Extremely Low
  • Status: Active Usage
  • Examples: All Clan Dragons
  • Description: Displays the powers of a Clan Dragon as they are described in the game.

  • Usage: None
  • Status: Inactive
  • Default Value: 1 Day
  • Examples: All Clan Dragons
  • Description: Indicates the amount of time needed to pass before a Clan Dragon's power can be used.

  • Used when the automatically-generated Base Gold per Hour does not match the real one the Dragon has. Simply add the amount in digits as it is on the Dragon's in-game Level 1 Codex Entry. For this parameter, the unformatted number must be added, thus the thousands are not to be separated.

  • The information on obtaining a Dragon is, normally, generated by a combination of multiple parameters, usually available, method and the others that interact with these two. This parameter is used to override said information, in case it does not apply to the Dragon. Additionally, if no combination of parameters is able to generate the description, then "The Name Dragon is" will be shown as the first line under the "Obtaining" section of the article.

  • Description: Indicates the amount of times a Dragon has been a Dragon of the Week.

    1. Manually count all instances on the Dragon's own page.
    2. Open the article in editing mode, hit the Ctrl + F keyboard shortcut then type in {{dotw}}. The search results will indicate the number of times it appears on the page.
