SMW Tables

Would it be worth converting this page to SMW tables? Should we have a microtransaction query and template similar to skill gems (Template:SMW item table/skill gems)?

It loses quick access to the previews unless these can be easily added to the table somehow. It will however make the page easier to maintain, assuming we don't start hitting page processing timeouts.

Something like below?

{{SMW item table
|conditions=[[Has item class::Microtransactions]] [[Has cosmetic type::Helmet Skin]]

I say go ahead. Points and maybe links can be added to the {{Item}} at a later point with a bot perhaps. But keep in mind there might be some unreleased mtxes that will start to show. I agree that you should make a new template for it, similar to {{Query unique items}}. I think there are a few more pages besides this one that needs a overhaul, so having a template is better at that point and simplifies updating all the mtx tables tables in the future as well. --Illviljan (talk) 12:20, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
We're supposed to get a new MTX system in 3.0, which might treat MTX in a wholly different way than items. If that's the case, we might not want to overload the item module/template with MTX stuff. I say go ahead with the SMW conversion though. —Vini (t|c) 15:15, 30 April 2017 (UTC)
This conversion should be largely completed now so it should at least make it easier once the new MTX system in 3.0 is implemented, even if it means separating from the item module.
  • The Lists for weapons are hacky at the moment as I couldn't see a way to differentiate between the weapon types other than the description text
  • Added the price in a consistent section to the individual item pages even if the data already existed in a sentence to hopefully make it easy to automate moving this data to the Item object later with a bot or to remove/change

I haven't done much wiki editing in the past so if I make any mistakes or cause any problems with my editing let me know. :) --Crimsonfalconer (talk) 16:18, 2 May 2017 (UTC)
